Companies spend thousands of dollars to identify the vision and direction for their businesses. Hours of time is spent to ensure employees understand and buy in. This is a major factor in determining success. How much time and effort do you put into the vision for your life?
Vision Boards are a fun way to identify, attract and create the life you’ve always wanted. I’ve been playing with vision boards for years – beginning as a segment of workshops I was facilitating with teens.
They became a part of my life as well – at the beginning of each New Year. I used them to decide what to leave behind and what to focus on for the coming year. Now vision boards are a regular part of my planning for business and personal endeavors.
My favourite experience with vision boards happened via my New Years Poster for 2012.
I included pictures of family time, love and laughter, images of fun and nature. Nothing specific just a very general ‘feel good’ focus.
Thumbing through a magazine a picture of a safari / Aussie hat, jacket and binoculars caught my eye. I liked the ‘feel of it’ so glued it onto the upper left hand corner of my vision board. I can still see it there in my mind.
I did not have plans to travel any great distances – although I’d always had a fascination for Kenya and Australia.
In October of 2012 I got a phone call from an old school friend.
“Phyl I am going to Kenya. Do you want to come along?”
How could I possibly say no? Not knowing where the time or money would come from I had to trust it would all work out.
Christmas night of of 2012 I was on a plane from Vancouver to Nairobi for an incredible 8 week tour of 6 of the Eastern African countries.
Later in 2013 I was asked by another friend if I would be her ‘Plus 1’ at her nephews wedding. Again I was pleased to be asked. “Sure – that would be fun.”
“There’s just one little hitch. The wedding is in Brisbane.”…Even better.
Again I did not know how I was to find the time or money – but I was willing.
Childhood dreams realized, within a couple years of adding a photo of a hat, jacket and binoculars to a poster. Was this the magic of the vision board? Why not. I love magic. I do know that where attention goes – energy flows. Our subconscious directs up to 95% of our behaviour – and the language of the subconscious is images. Vision boards communicate with our subconscious. The image on the vision board – there via my intuition or maybe my subconscious remembering my childhood dreams – was in my focus daily. I felt joy and excitement when I looked at my vision board.
Of course my subconscious and the universe would want to deliver that to me.
Vision board workshops help you discover what you really want, dissolve the obstacles that may be blocking you and create the vision in you that will attract your desires.
You too, can have more, do more and be more.
