Thought-Provoking Thursday|Manifesting Your Dreams!

What better way to make your dreams come true than by putting a plan in place to make them a reality?! Everyone has dreams inside whether you write them down, say them aloud, or think them and let them fade away. I’ve often taped pictures of things that I want to the wall with motivational quotes and affirmations scattered to keep me focused. Thanks to next week’s assignment I have to turn for my Life Coaching course, I’m putting together a vision board.

I used a foam board that I got at Michael’s and decorated it with scrapbook paper to make it colorful and give it meaning to me. Each scrapbook design signifies something.

For example, the pink princess paper reminds me to tap into my inner child, not take myself so seriously, be silly, have fun, and be my authentic self! The green is for abundance, not just money or material things but health, love, joy, kindness, generosity. The next thing I did was brainstorm things that I wanted to manifest. For me this was more than wishing for something or hoping for things to fall in place. There are specific things that I want and by putting them on my vision board, I’m doing my part to make it happen!

Here are a few examples of what I’m going to print and put on my board-

One of the next steps I’ll be taking is starting my own heart-centered business. This will include Life Coaching, Reiki, and making The Kindness Challenge into a seminar. I put a few words around the photo just to help me focus when I visualize it becoming reality. I’m not limiting my dream, those are just reminders to myself of where that dream will go.

Another thing on my vision board is my health and fitness. I’ve been struggling with being overweight for the past five or six years and I want to focus on it in a more positive way. Instead of feeling like a failure for not losing weight or beating myself up for not making the healthiest choices, I want to give myself an uplifting reminder that’s visible and makes me happy. I’ve listed the weight I want to get down to, ways to get there and reasons that I want to.

There are many tutorials, books and websites dedicated to vision boards and manifestation. I encourage you to take a look at different resources and do what resonates with you. When I first started putting mine together I got a little sidetracked. Instead of putting things on my board that I wanted to manifest, I got caught up with quotes and motivational pieces. Those are great and I can never get enough but I decided to keep those separate. I’ll put them next to my vision board so it’s surrounded by positive and uplifting words but the board itself is full of things that I want to come to fruition in my life.

As a visual learner, a vision board is the perfect way for me to keep my dreams front and center. It’s positive, visually appealing, and reminds me that I need to take action in order to make it happen! All I have to do is look at the pictures and there’s an immediate connection. I know what it represents for me, what I want, and every time I look at it I have a renewed sense of determination. Sometimes all I have to do is go for it and it will go from a dream to a reality. Other times I have to meditate and pray because divine intervention is required in addition to me doing my part. Either way, it’s a great way to keep me focused on the positive things, make good choices today that will build a better tomorrow, and push me to keep dreaming!

    1. This is the prettiest and most intentional one that I’ve done. I smile every time I look at it. Everything is infused with positivity and meaning. Let me know if you end up making one of your own! 🙂

  1. I’ve heard of these vision boards so often and I tried it once electronically. It didn’t feel right though, I guess I’m more of a “word” person than a picture-person. Whatever works, right? 😉

    1. You know, I have a digital version but it’s not the same for me. I have a combination of words and pictures but mine is physical and that really makes a difference. I’m able to just tune out the digital one but the physical one I walk by and even take the time to just sit and focus on it. For me it’s much more effective 🙂

  2. After I read The Secret I thought very hard about making one and -being creatively challenged-didn’t know where to start from a craft point of view. I have a Michael’s gift card now burning a hole in my purse… Thanks girl!!

    1. Yesssss!! I bought an $8 styrofoam board from Michael’s, scrapbook paper and scrapbook stickers. I spent about $30 but I also got a board for my mom. Start creating your beautiful future Amanda!

    1. Vision boards are pretty amazing. They’re goals on steroids. For me there’s something about the pictures that makes it more powerful. I’m a visual person and I’ll usually look at the picture, close my eyes and picture it happening. I let my imagination run wild and soak up the feeling of what it would feel like when that scenario comes to fruition. Some goals are really big and some are small with a big impact. It’s a way to keep the goals present so that you have them on your mind regularly so that your across will follow your thoughts.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing Yecheilyah! Yes, combine action to the vision of the dream and you will make it a reality! Funny that you say “live your purpose” because I am a worthiness ambassador- I help women identify their authentic selves so they can discover their purpose and walk in it! So glad to connect with you! ❤
