What’s On Your Vision Board?

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

Do you have a vision board? A place you can look at that shows images of things you would like to have or accomplish in your life? I’ve just been recently hipped to this whole notion, and I’m excited to start one.

Knowing little about vision boards, I dropped a line to my pal, Gabrielle Bernstein, author of Add More ~Ing to Your Life and the upcoming Spirit Junkie. She said:

Having a vision board helps our clarify your desires. The more clear we are about that which we desire the more we believe we can call it in. The key to manifesting is believing. Therefore having a vision board helps us reinforce our beliefs by holding the vision of our desire in your mind each time we glance at our board.

It really is just that simple. For example, if you wanted to travel to Italy one day, you could post a picture of the Italian flag or a map of Rome. Let’s say you want to own a pet grooming business. Put up a picture of a fluffy dog with ribbons on her ears. It’s all about picturing what it is you want to see happen in your life.

I like the sound of that. I want a whole vision wall full of pictures showing books, guitars and wedding bouquets.

So what about you? What would you put on your vision board?

I recently made a vision board for my classroom to start the school year… It’s not so much pics of things as it is soft peaceful colors and phrases to remind me of how I want my classroom to be…

Yes-I have separate ones in two different rooms and the boards are rather messy, but effective–always a work in progress

I made my “VISION BOARD” out of desperation during a dark time of my life but I did it a little differently. At the time I was too depressed to set goals but I was able to page through some old magazines and cut out pictures of what I wanted to be, to do, and to have. Next I took an old picture album and put the pictures in the album…then I cut out quips and sayings that I liked from the magazines and matched them up with the pictures where they seemed most appropriate. It worked! My “dream book” grew from one volume to three volumes and the dreams in them started happening in my life! How? I don’t know and don’t really care…how, they just did! Try it! It was the best therapy (and cheapest therapy) I ever had to be able to see who I was, what I truly wanted and to begin to heal and to dream again!

I don’t have a vision board per say. Howver, I am constantly working on differnt collages, each about different aspects of my life, including things I want to do, places I want to go, things I want to learn. I used to just cut and pst but now am adding journalling and other things to them. A reat way to learn about yourself and your desires. Its a whole process for me. One day I will go through a variety of magazines and cut out any words/images that speak to me. Then another day I will pick out those words/images for the specific collage and another day I make the collage.

The Idea of having a vision and place it on a board is a powerful suggestion. I once had a vision of founding a home for neglected and abandoned children. I wanted to do this so bad that there was no dought that it would become a reality. The home was founded and flurished for the benefit of many poor, hungry and neglected children that today there those who were cared there would not be alive if it was not for this vision.

I used to watch the show Starting Over about women put together in a house for a period of time with life coaches that helped them work through problems with life. It was so helpful and emotional and the positive motivation from that show helped me to move forward in my healing process. I have been making vision boards and collages for a long time. I have 3 for myself in my home I have made one for my son and daughter. I have also made hard back journals with a vision board/collage and I have3 had friends request me to make them one and they give me a theme and/or ideas to personalize it just for them. I find this very healing and theraputic for me. Whatever we need to do to keep ourselves positive and moving forward, more power to us!!
