Visualisation techniques are among the most powerful tools you can use to achieve what you want in life, as its one of the best ways of keeping yourself focused and on track.There are many ways visualisation can help and i am often asked for advice the ones i am going to focus on right now are vision boards and vision books, because this is one of the easiest ways to start. This is a brief how to guide, as i believe once you get started you will find your own flow.
Vision boards have many names, dream boards, dream maps, vision maps i could go on for quite a while but no matter what you call them the whole idea is to offer you a visual reminder of what you are aiming for the same goes for the vision books. They work by using the power of attraction: which in its simplest form follows the principle of ask, believe and receive. It goes on the premise that we attract things from the universe and can of cause be translated into spiritual beliefs or that of a psychological one.
What you need:
List/ideas of life goals
Notice board/Card / scrap book / note book
Magazines, internet, printer, photos
Start by deciding if you are going to create a vision board or book (i use both. One for on the wall and one in a scrap book that is more detailed)
Now go through the magazines etc looking for pictures and affirmations that match your goals.
Fix them to your board or into your book, you can make it look however you want and can either have separate boards or books for different goals. I tend to use The Bagua most often used in Feng Shui as it is believed to mimic thought patterns or the way thoughts are processed in the brain.
Career, Knowledge & self-cultivation, Health & family, Wealth & Prosperity, Fame & reputation, Love & Marriage, creativity & children, helpful people & travel, The Centre (this is who you are at your core) you can even put an image of yourself in the centre or cover.
They do not have to be in any order and there is no strict way of doing it but there are things to remember..
It may help if you meditate before you do this task to help you focus.
Be sure to take a look at your board or which ever version you are doing on a daily basis; use affirmations to help you ‘cheer lead’ yourself along the way. You can also use it in meditation exercises.
Be very careful of what you put on your board; remember to keep an eye on the small details in the back ground.
Make sure you stay clear from judgmental thoughts. Instead of thinking “i should be doing this” instead think “I want to do this”
Remember you can change the things on the board when ever you want.
I have seen vision boards in many forms; some in boxes and some that have been built up over the years and have ended up inches thick in some places. It is all about you so do what feels right for you. These are guidelines giving you ideas of what can be achieved.
So give it a try and of cause any questions feel free to ask
