    The Brilliance of Vision Boards, Books, Quilts etc.

    in Lifestyle

    Vision Boards are a map to your future, the one you set forth.  Remember it all starts with a thought!  Here's one of many links online that supports your creating a Vision Board if you decide you still need more help after this show  Make A Vision Board Website

    My first experiences with Visioning came from reading Shakti Gawain's Book: Creative Visualization.  I learned to meditate on my goals in pictures.  Most of the work is done for you. You don't have to be a great artist to design your life...find the picture online or in magazines and cut & paste your way to Deep desires!

    According to MindBodyGreen website you don't have to have a board you can leave signposts throughout your home as long as it's inspiritng to you.

    I decided to make both a Vision Book and Vision Quilt projects for designing my future.  I still have vision boards strategically placed throughout my home, but I like the idea of taking a book with me when I travel or sleeping under and being wrapped up in my intentions! (What a lovely warming thought!)

    Vision Boards can be as cluttered or spacious as you like in words, pictures or encompass textrures. If you want to live by the Ocrean maybe  attach some sand or seashells to your board.  Find a key chain with your chosen car logo on it and replace your car keychain with it to remind you of what you are driving soon!  Check out the examples I've listed here and watch this wonderful video aobut Vision Boards from Step One Vision Boards

    Join us as we Brilliantly design our futures and Map Your life! 

    Remember to Bring On Your Brilliance!!
