Do you know where you’re going? Do you know what you really want out of life? Whether your answer to those questions is yes or no, a vision board is a tool you can use on your journey. Creating a vision board can help you figure out what you want and where you’re going. If you already have a pretty good idea, a vision board can help you clarify your dreams, provide you with a visual road map and help you focus.
What is a vision board, you ask? It is a powerful tool to keep you inspired and motivated to achieve your goals and realize your dreams. A vision board uses images, words or both to pinpoint and represent exactly what it is you want. It helps keep you on track; it keeps your “attention on your intentions.”
We now know that we stimulate the same brain regions when we visualize an action as when we actually physically perform that same action. Our subconscious minds respond to images and repeated words and phrases. The act of creating a vision board, and then putting it in a place where you will see it every day, helps our conscious minds focus on what it is we want. It also tells our subconscious minds to work on creating those things.
Several years ago, I decided that I would get a brand new Jeep Wrangler in December. I found an image of the exact Jeep I wanted and put it up in my bedroom where I would see it several times a day. I had no money and a very old car. The car I had was working on only two cylinders out of four; the other two were dead. It had no shocks, barely any brakes and the muffler was held on with a wire hanger! The whole thing rattled and shook its way down the road when I drove it.
That December, I drove that poor, sad, barely operational car from Hollywood to Ventura, (about 60 miles). I gave the dealership that car and a check post dated two weeks into the future and drove off with a brand new Wrangler with only seven miles on it. Black,full metal doors, roll up windows, kick-ass stereo, trunk, air conditioning…exactly what I wanted.
That’s an example of getting exactly what you want, but what if you are hazy on the details? In upcoming posts, I’ll be showing you how to use astrology to get clear on your dreams and goals for all areas of your life.
