The actual making of a vision board is easy. The challenge most people have with the process of creating a vision board is, that they do not know “how to visualize” or “how to manifest”. The question “how can I do this” is asked by the intellect, which wants concrete answers to everything, that cannot be answered.
Today I will focus on the visualizing process and share some simple tips, which I collected from experts like John Assaraf, Jack Canfield, Robert MacPhee and other mentors. A vision board is a tool to actually help you visualize, because you can look at images representing your dreams and desires, to expand on this you add what you feel, hear and smell.
The most important aspect of visualization is to feel it. For example if your dream is to go down the Nile on a boat and visit the Pyramids: you hear and feel the warm wind brushing against your body, your clothes flattering in the breeze, you would feel the gentle movement of the boat, you have a huge smile on your face while gazing at the landscape along the water, the palm trees, fishermen, villages passing by, workers on the boat calling out instructions to others in their foreign language, stopping getting out of the boat and standing in front of the pyramids, smelling exotic foods, hearing exotic sounds etc. Ok, I get carried away, as you can tell I have been practicing and I want to go down the Nile.
It might help to write it all down, as a meditation and practice, just write what comes to your mind. Do not stop and think about it, you want to do this exercise from you right brain (creative), not left brain (logical, intellectual.)
Another example is: your dream or goal to work for the UN in New York. You see yourself go to work, stand in front of the building, (put an image of the building on your vision board) walk in, sign in at the reception, take the elevator to your floor, walk to your office, look at your name on the office door, walk in, sit down at your desk, check your messages from important people all over the world, look out at the view over Manhattan and feel how good it feels and how grateful you are that you achieved your life goal. I recently read a wonderful book, “Desert Flower” the author: Waris Dirie lives in poverty in Somalia describes her dream to work fro the UN in New York.
Here some simple exercises to practice visualization: Sit be comfortable and close your eyes. Now: visualize yourself making coffee, put the beans in the grinder, push the button, hear the noise, smell the aroma of the ground coffee, put the grinds in the coffee maker and hear the sound when it bubbles up and the wonderful smell of the coffee, now taste the coffee how does it taste?
Bring up a great memory, that was especially enjoyable and happy, go through the same process and bring up as many details as possible. Please remember that we all of different ways to visualize things and events, some people have vivid visuals, others feel it, so there is no right way or wrong way of doing it. The most important part is that you are in touch with what you want and the more you practice the easier it gets, I guarantee. If you have any questions, please leave a comment at the end of the post, I will answer!
