We live in times where the visual communication has surpassed the words, even the use of Instagram can define relationships status. But in this period of time there is an easy way to use the hype and buzz around visualization just for your own shake, in order to transform your own life.
People design the life they want to live, making choices and taking multiple decisions at any moment of the day. Vision boards can help you provide this unique and extremely effective way to build your own path to happiness and self-improvement. Think of a scrapbook that you wrote filling it with colorful stickers during your childhood. This time however, it’s not just a colorful notebook that just changes hands. It’s a board made by for you.
Primary goal should be how to get closer to what you really want: to be perfectly in harmony with what will make you happy. Things which will help you accomplish this goal can put flesh on the bones of this vision in the form of printed images, a small object that can be placed on a board in a prominent spot of your house. It can be on the inside of your closet door or on your refrigerator. It must be somewhere where you can check the progress you are making.
The main function of a vision board is based on the law of attraction. The basic idea is that you are trying to create a collage of things, experiences, ideal situations you would like to experience in your life. By concentrating to these elements, you can shape your own reality, and by creating the visualized and tangible version of this reality you are gradually drawn to it. By looking at them gradually you become able to attract them and bring them to your life.
Just try to think of the job you would like to have, the look you would like to acquire, the health you would like to radiate your face, the next trips you would like to make, the human relationships you would like to improve, the clothes you would like to buy, the house you would like to live in. The more specific you are, the better.
A few examples:
Youthful appearance, healthier skin with reduced wrinkles and black circles. Focus on the importance of each element. For example, prefer to put on the vision board images of natural cosmetics which can help you to reach faster your goal e.g Euthalia’s Active Eye Serum or Euthalia’s Active Hyaluronic Cream.
Remember that it’s crucial for everything that you select to appear on your vision board to be representative of what you do want, not anything you don’t. For this reason, it can be even more helpful to use Google library of stock images to pull up the exact image or word you want to see. It’s a lot easier to search online for a bright, shiny face skin, images of healthy hair or a pile of cash to represent abundance and then print it out than it is to count on your magazine collection to contain that specific image. Once you’ve made your vision board, it’s important to hang it in view—Don’t feel like you need to stare at it 24/7, but it does need to appear in a place where you will encounter it every day.
There are several celebrities who have publicly admitted how their lives changed using a vision board in their everyday life. One of the greatest vision board fans, Oprah Winfrey has mentioned “a vision board will help to bring everything in life, so try to build the biggest vision for yourself. The best version of yourself. Remember: what you focus on expands”. Among the celebrities who have praised the great potential that a vision board has for your life is Will Smith. One of the most successful female skiers in history, Lyndsey Vonn, gold medalist says her mental practice of visualization gives her a competitive advantage on the course. Years ago, Jim Carey was a struggling but ambitious comedian who sometimes was thinking to give up on his dream. Carey at this turning point for him decided to pursue his passion and he chose a unique way to visualize his success. He decided to write himself a check for $10 million, adding a note “for acting services rendered” and dated it for 1994. Just before this time the actor found out he would be receiving $10 million for his role in “Dumb and Dumber”.
