Your Weekly Feel Good Homework: Create a Vision Board

The Vision Board is a spiritual concept practiced with many different philosophies, and often associated with the self-help book “The Secret”.  Constructing a Vision Board is easy but figuring out what that “Vision” can be a difficult task.

A Vision Board is simply a large poster board or cork board with images and inspirational quotes that we should reflect upon each day. By envisioning ourselves with the images and insight displayed on the board, we are therefore putting those positive wavelengths out into the universe to be received. This plays off of “The Secret’s” concept of our positive and negative outlooks having a magnetic effect on what the universe draws back to us.

To create your vision board consider the following steps:

  1. Pick A Theme For Your Board: What do you want to focus on? Try not to focus solely on material items. Theme concepts could include: “Things That Make Me Happy”, “Goals I Would Like To Achieve” etc.
  2. Find Pictures to Demonstrate Your Theme: Pictures from old magazine, news articles, personal photographs or the internet are all fine!
  3. Find Affirmations That Fit Your Theme: Type or write them out to adhere to your board.
  4. Assemble and Place Your Board: Place the images and phrases on your board and display your board in a place you can look at every day.
  5. Meditate On The Theme Of Your Board: Really believe in your board and believe in achieving the theme or mantra you have provided for your board. The Universe will deliver what you ask for as long as you stay optimistic (and realistic!)

    FINDING JOE

    In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and he called it “The Hero’s Journey.” A truly inspirational film, FINDING JOE takes us on the ultimate hero’s journey: the journey of self discovery. Using the mythological teachings of Joseph Campbell, and interviews with visionaries, the film inspires us all to discover our passions and purpose. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think. This life changing film is now available on DVD and iTunes.

    Featuring: Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Tony Hawk, Rashida Jones, Laird Hamilton, Robert Walter, Robin Sharma, Catherine Hardwicke, Sir Ken Robinson, Akiva Goldsman and many more.
