Vision Boards and Vision Statements

vision     I think it’s safe to say that most of us have heard someone say, “Visualize what you want and you will get/achieve it,” in our lifetimes.  If we’re lucky, we’ve heard it more than once, and if we are even luckier, we’ve tried one ourselves and found that it can be a great tool.  If you have yet to discover them, then today is for you!

Today’s project can be one of two things: either write out a vision statement of what you would like your life to look like in three to five years, or create a vision board filled with photos that represent what you want your future to look like.  It’s a fun project, and it helps us really realize exactly what we want.

The vision board or statement works through the law of attraction.  The energy that you put into the universe through it is what you are going to attract back.  If you are able to, look at your board or read your statement every day.  Remind yourself what it is you need and desire, and let the universe know what you want so that it may respond appropriately.

When I am struggling to move forward, make decisions, or simply just feel stagnant in life, I use this tool.  When I start writing or finding photos for one aspect of my life, other ideas begin to roll in, and it helps me get my blood flowing again.  Hopefully it can do the same for someone else!

Try this with me today if you haven’t already, and if you have, go ahead and make a new one!  Be detailed.  Be creative.  Use as many specific examples as you can.  The more you envision, the more you will attract!
