LAURA MORRISSEY COUNSELLING·FRIDAY, 4 JANUARY 2019
In my last Blog, I talked about how important it is to visualise what you want rather than what you do not want to occur in life. Visualisation is the opposite of anxiety, it allows us to dream of how we want our life to look. It is anticipatory rather than fear driven. It is liberating and actually helps us to achieve our hearts desires…On elf my goals
The thought of creating a vision board may sound daunting but it is far from it. My last blog encouraged you to cut up magazines or mine images or quotes from the internet. The only rules were that they should be aspirational and positive in nature. Things that make you feel happy, hopeful and positive, as things that we visualise are very likely to occur!
The next part is up to you and how you like to approach projects. There are no rules, so if you are naturally creative and free thinking then make up your board exactly how it appeals to you. You can have several boards for different facets of your life or one large board. You can have an image on your phone, tablet or computer that is a compilation of all your images, available to look at whenever you use your device. As long as it speaks to you, the you have a vision board!
If you are wary of getting started then you can follow these guidelines:
Prepare your images &/ or quotes
Separate them into different categories i.e relationships, exercise, healthy eating, job or education.
Dream about what you want to have achieved by the end of 2019. Write it down i.e I want to get that promotion, be in a relationship, have travelled to..? Dream big!
Create your success in images or words. If you want to write a book, design the cover & write your name on the cover. Write No1 Bestseller! Want to receive an award? Then create the image of you receiving it!………..you get the idea.
Start sticking, copying & pasting. You can divide the board into as many sections of your life as you wish and then start applying them.
Stand back & admire. Then add to the vision or be happy with it as it is, your choice!
Make sure you hang it up or keep it in a place where you can see it regularly.
Update it as you meet the goals!
Sharing your vision board with others, if you wish, can be a good idea because it makes the dreams feel more tangible & you can enlist their support.
Enjoy! it is your board! If you like it & it speaks to you, then well done!
I hope this process is an enjoyable one. It does work!
