Making a Vision Board can be intimidating, so I’ve created a 4-part blog and video series to help you easily create an Amazing Vision Board for 2014. The video isn’t slick and it doesn’t have any flashy graphics, but it does have lots of tried-and-true advice on how to draw up all those dreams and desires from deep down inside of youself and get them onto a beautiful board that will inspire you for months or years to come.
I’m a gigantic fan of vision boards – but only the deep, authentic kind.
Some people like to make vision boards that look like visual Christmas wish lists. And while, I do believe having material desires is fine, I still believe that using your vision board to make a list of toys you want the Universe to deliver to you is extremely limiting.
Vision Boards can do so much more! They can help you discover (or rediscover) what’s deeply important to you. They help you communicate in symbolic, right-brain language so you don’t get caught in the limits of language and it’s labels.
They can also help you get a birds-eye view of your life and really look at what you want to prioritize and how you want to balance the varied aspects of your existence.
When I lead a vision board workshop, as I just did this past Saturday, I use the Feng Shui Bagua as a template and I guide the participants through something I call “the soulful vision board process.”
For this process, I use the Feng Shui Bagua as a template for two main reasons:
1. To energize the vision boards with bagua energy. There’s a reason feng shui has been practiced for hundreds of years, and why even conservative companies pay thousands of dollars to feng shui consultants. It’s simply because it works. When you arrange a house with the bagua as a guide, the people in the house experience more peace, health, prosperity and so on. I believe the same is true for a vision board.
2. To cover all aspects of one’s life. Life has many different areas to it – wealth, love, health, travel, learning, career, etc. Using the feng shui bagua as a vision board template insures that you examine all the areas of your life rather equally and give them all their due. This leads to more balance and well-being.
If you’re interested in creating a soulful vision board, watch the video above and learn what materials work best, why and how to use the feng shui bagua as a template, and how to brainstorm before collecting your images.
In my next blog post, I’ll start introducing you to the 10 Tips To Creating An Amazing Vision Board.
So go get those art supplies – especially that 20” x 30” foam core board, and I’ll be back with more next week.
Love, joy and happy manifesting!
