Today I want to share with you an effective way to make your dreams come true using one of my favorite tools, which is “Visualizing With a Vision Board.”
I’ve done several in the past, which means that I made a few mistakes that resulted in a cluttered board filled with ideas that didn’t truly resonate with my authentic self. And guess what? Every single thing that posted on those boards that didn’t align with my real dream did not come true.
We are all the creators of our own life. Vision boards are such a fantastic tool because they get you to reflect on what we truly desire in our lives. We also get to know the steps that we need to take to make those dreams and desires a reality.
Before you take out your stacks of magazines and glue, there are a few things I recommend to do before jumping in, to truly make this board a useful tool we will work within the creation and manifestation of our dream reality.
You might be asking, why do I need another vision board video? Well, because I believe It’s crucial for me to entertain ideas that inspire you and help bring them to life. This is one of them.
Sometimes, the message has to come from YOU!
Step 1: Develop Clarity
How do we find clarity?
- One way to find clarity is to spend some time each day reflecting on your hearts true desires.
I’ve created a PDF file that you can download so you can start the process of reflection. It was made specifically for a career-themed board, but it can be used for almost any other area of our life.
- Focus on one area of your life per board. There is so much that goes into each area of your life that putting it all together in one place is going to be overwhelming and lack clarity.
- Schedule 20 minutes in a day of the week where you will take out your journal and reflect on what you will manifest.
- These are some questions that helped me find the clarity that I needed. Feel free to answer all or just a few. The intention with this first step is to get VERY CLEAR on what you want and what you need to do to achieve that.
There is no pressure in having it all figured out, but knowing a few actions that will help you get, there will be incredible because they will set you off in the right direction.
A vision board is all about preparing for this dream when it comes.
What are five things that you can start doing right now that will get you closer to your goal?
Step 2: Work on the goals every day
Now that you know what you need to do to make this dream a reality, you want to schedule time each day to work on this dream.
Don’t overwhelm yourself. It’s a journey in which each stage should be enjoyed.
Focus on your goal and tackle it one grain at a time.
Step 3: Believe that it already is/ HAVE FAITH
Put a huge I AM in the center of the board.
The images on the board are not hopeful wishing; they are FACTS of what we are manifesting. Having that in the center will shift the way we see it.
“You want what follows I am to be congruent with your highest self, which is God” Dr. Wayne Dyer
You get what you are, not what you want. So we want to become what we are manifesting. This exercise is all about BECOMING
When you are serving, you are becoming like God.
Our goal is to reflect the character of God.
Make the BEST of your board
Choose images that speak to your dream
Images should stir emotion within you when you see them
Add pictures that represent the steps you need to take.
Take these questions into consideration:
- How are you going to feel when this comes to fruition?
- Who do you need to become for this dream to become a reality?
- What do you need to let go of for this dream to become a reality?
- Service towards others. How is my goal going to help humanity?
Tip #5: SURRENDER
What we need to realize is that as much planning and reflection that we do to have control over our lives, I believe we must surrender to the idea that everything that does or does not happen is for our highest good.
We don’t need to get hung up and feel defeated if something on our vision board does not come true.
One thing that I know for sure is that our goals and dreams are NOTHING compared to what God has planned for us.
So while we work hard every day to achieve our dreams and goals, we must also be at peace with life turning out differently.
That’s the magic, and that’s the beauty of it all.
The power within this practice, I believe genuinely lies when we surrender to it, when we let it go.
“I believe that you are never given the power to dream without the equivalent power to manifest that dream and make it your physical reality.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
