Visualising your future through a vision board actually brings you closer to your dreams one day at a time
Think back to when you were a child and your fantasies ran wild. Do you still remember your imaginary friend? Global comic icon Trevor Noah had one, Andrew whom he always talks about in his shows. Vision boards are tools for visualisation, which is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. Believe it or not, vision boards do work because they help you see what your mind is thinking, and as we know you are what you think. What media mogul Oprah, actor Will Smith, South Africa’s television darling, Nomzamo Mbatha have in common is that they used vision boards to reach some of their dreams. So why not give it a try and see for yourself what this powerful exercise can do for you? Oh, and when you create one place it where you can see it or carry it in your handbag so you can look at it when you have time during the day. This way you are doing visualisation exercises that should make you feel good. This powerful feeling will ultimately attract circumstances and people who will help bring you closer to your dreams. So have back magazines, quotes, scissors, glue, paper or book, and let’s get rolling:
- What you should put on your vision board: Literally anything that inspires and motivates you in every aspect of your life, from your career, dream home, travel, relationships and personal growth, including spirituality or education. What you focus on expands so go big!
- When to re-do your vision board: you can do this as often as you like. If you have a bigger board or paper leave blank spaces to add to it. The vision board is yours, use it however you want, just make sure that what you put in it is accompanied by faith.
- Take your time: the trick here is to have fun and not see this activity as a race. Take as much time as you like because what you place on your vision board to evoke feelings.
- Set the mood: this can be a form of mediation. Make sure nothing disturbs you, include songs that uplift you in your play list and light a candle. Most importantly have fun.
How to use your vision board:
- Spend each morning and evening praying over, visualising, believing and internalising your vision board.
- Let your vision be the last thing you look at before going to bed. According to the law of attraction gurus, doing this mental exercise before sleeping will replay itself repeatedly in your subconscious mind, which obediently manifests your thoughts into your everyday experiences.
- When your dreams become reality, refer back to your vision board and feel gratitude, acknowledging that the law of attraction is working to your favour. Treasure your vision board as it chronicles your dreams becoming a fruitful and successful reality.
