Many people have an unfortunate problem: they can’t see anything except what’s right in front of them. They’re stuck in concrete reality. However, what’s the major difference between them and a visionary? Well, a visionary can see their vision. And that’s the difference I’m talking about: if you can’t see your vision, you can never create it. Though it’s a little trite, manifestation is a little like drawing from pictures in your mind: you have to see an image in your head and be able to draw it. However, unlike drawing, the only talent law of attraction really requires is faith: all else will be learned along the way.
A vision board is a board that you put visual representations of your desires on and adjust and admire daily. It’s a place for you to concretely express your goals visually and to sort your life. And this is intensely helpful for your law of attraction work because the asking stage entails figuring out what you want, clarifying it, explaining why you want it, visualizing it, and being able to hold it as a desire and not concern yourself over its absence. Likewise, as you begin to place the images on the board, you may find that you don’t have an organizational structure and so it’s frustrating to organize the images. If that’s the case, then simply consider imposing one.
To offer one suggestion, I solved this problem on my own vision board by putting an idealized picture of myself in the center of my board and then placed things symbolically around me: I’m looking at my goals and desires written on note cards, my mouth is covered with the languages I want to and do already speak fluently, I have my love goals on and near a heart over my chest, money goals branch out of my right front pocket (where I keep my money since I realized how much carrying a wallet hurts one’s back), my intellectual and academic goals and desires are in a thought bubble above my head, etc.
The vision board causes you to have to seek out pictures of what you want. This is not as easy as you’d think, particularly if you limit yourself to magazines as I did when I began-though, that’s not necessary at all. This seeking and clarifying process will allow you to understand why you want something and cause you to put some effort into finding pictures of it so that you can put it on your vision board. And as you move through life, you may find something different that you like better-great, now, you need to switch it on the board and again, seek out a picture of what you want.
So much of the asking stage is about visualizing, and if you’re like me, visualizing is very difficult to do. Making a vision board will make it far easier for you to visualize your goals because all you have to do is look at your board and there it is! It’s no longer just something you imagine in your mind, you’ve made it concrete.
