Do you have a vision board?
A place where you put up pictures and words that best represent your dreams and goals that you would like to attract into your life?

The idea behind the vision board is to get you THERE. To put yourself into your ideal life and actually FEEL what it's like to be there. Your mind truly doesn't know the difference between actuality and feeling. And the way the law of attraction works is to manifest everything you want in your life by feeling as though you already have it. This is where the vision board can be so helpful.

I know many stories of people putting something on their board and then making it reality soon after. By creating a vision board and then FEELING what it was like to live that life, people have attracted love, money, homes, health, and inner peace to their lives.

If you have never created one before - give it a try!
It's a great way for you to go within and envision what your ideal life looks like.

There are so many categories that you could focus on - it just depends on what you would like to manifest into your life:
Your Home Life

There are so many ways you can do this, too.

I am a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I took my vision board apart when we moved two years ago, and I am just now making a new one. It's one of those things that has been on my to-do list ever since, and then life took over and my own self-care got pushed to the bottom of my priority list.

Because I have cleared my plate for an entire month to take care of myself, write, and take time to go within - everything that was pushed down is rising up again. And one of these things is my vision board.

What I did is take a large bulletin board, which I then covered in beautiful paper for the background. I am a visual person, so I wanted my vision board itself to be beautiful.

I then started thinking about my life:
What does my ideal life look like?
How do I live?
How do I spend my days?
Who do I spend time with?
Where do I live?

Once I knew what I wanted to focus on, I went to the computer and started having some fun. I found a picture of my dream home that I know I will live in someday. And with the help of Photoshop, I superimposed our faces into the photos, so it looks like we're actually there. I designed the cover of the new book I'm writing and printed it out - along with endorsements from my favorite authors. I printed out a check from the publishing company that I want to work with. I had even more fun in Photoshop and put myself with my mentors - as though we were hanging out together.

There are so many things you can do with your own vision board - let your creativity flow!

If you would like to lose weight, you could put up a photo of yourself where you were your ideal weight. If you would like to manifest a loving relationship, you could list all of the qualities your mate would have. You could even cut out a photo of how you imagine they would look.

Go through magazines and cut out pictures and words that best describe your ideal life.

You can also make a vision board on your computer and then turn it into your screensaver. I think what I will do is take pictures of mine and turn those into my screensaver.

So take some time today and get started on your own vision board.
Have fun with it!
