Spring is in the air and new life is all around, what better time to think about your hopes and dreams for 2014?
Feng Shui places great emphasis on the power of intent. Intention is the starting point of every dream, and your intentions help you achieve your goals. To fully harness the power of intention we often need to see our dreams in front of us. A vision board is a wonderful way to clarify your dreams and begin manifesting them. Vision Boards may seem simple, but often just being able to see your dreams can make a positive impact.
Here are some simple steps to get your vision board started:
Stop by a magazine stand and buy a few magazines that suit your goals (you may also print them from the internet).
Some topics might be:
Getting more family time
Making new friends
Taking your career to the next level
Taking that dream vacation
Now that you have your magazines, find images that suit your goals and cut them out. The cuts don’t have to be perfect, just make sure to include all of the parts of the image that speak to you.
Next arrange the images (collage-style) on a poster board. Take care in placing things in a way that is aesthetically pleasing to you. You can even use special framing to make your board blend into your current interior design.
After you have completed your vision board, set it aside to work its magic. Place your board somewhere in your home; it may be visible during daily life or hidden from view.
In a few months, take an in-depth look at your board to discover all of the things that have come to fruition since incorporating the board into your visual landscape.
The power of intention is one of the central themes of Feng Shui. The very act of selecting images and making a vision board sends out a powerful message to the universe. The message is that you have visualized your dreams and now you intend to go out and achieve them.
