I read books on metaphysics (the philosophy of ‘being’) on a regular basis. There’s a huge raising up of global consciousness around the fact that our limitations rarely come from our government, our society, our family or our friends. Our limitations come from our mindset. We can positively influence our mindset by choosing the environments we spend time in, the books we read, TV we watch, music we listen to, the language we select and even the food we eat. One thing is certain, YOU are 100% responsible for the results you achieve in your life from today onwards.
Every decision you’ve ever made in your lifetime has brought you to just this moment. Now. Reading this. AND every decision you make from this day onwards will influence your future and who you and your children become.
So, how do we keep ourselves aligned with ‘The Dream’? Here’s a quick, easy and powerfully effective way – make a Vision Board. Here’s the scoop:
1. What is a Vision Board
A Vision Board is a visual representation of your ideal life. It’s a large sheet of paper that can have pictures, words, images and symbols on it – anything that resonates with you as being something you desire for your future.
2. How do you make it
What I did was buy a sheet of A1 card (that’s 4 times the size of A4 paper) from
WHSmith. I then bought magazines that I knew would have pictures of what I was looking for – homes, interiors, gardens, traveling, fitness. I even bought a dog magazine because my daughter’s always asking ‘when we have a big house can we have a dog’.
I spent an evening browsing through these magazines and cutting out any image or word in a headline that stood out for me as something I desired. I then spent another evening placing all these images onto my card. I had an area for home, another for lifestyle, another for fitness … but you put the images together in whatever way feels right for you.
I glued all the images down, stood back, breathed and said ‘yes, this is what’s coming’. The Vision Board is pinned to my office wall, right behind my computer screen, so that when I look up, I’m inspired all over again. Love it!
3. How does it work
Well, in short ‘where our mind goes, our reality will follow’. So if you fill your mind with images and the experiences you want to have AND connect with the emotions of how you’ll feel when it happens, you begin to access the power of attraction. There is so much new science acknowledging this now; revolutionising our understanding of the link between mind and matter and prompting a complete re-evaluation of life as we have known it.
For me, I’m continuing to learn about metaphysics, but here’s what’s great – you don’t have to know the ‘how’ for techniques like this to work. Just trust that it will work and do it. It’s how I started. And it works!
