What does a Vision Board workshop look like?
The 1st hour we will get together in a friendly, safe, respectful atmosphere and share our aspirations, dreams. family values and our passions. Once we collectively brainstormed and let go to dare to dream, our creative energy will begin to power through! The 2nd hour will involve actively cutting, creating, drawing and or writing out our dreams and aspirations with the tools of beautiful images and photos, slogans, powerful words and craft items such as stickers and miscellaneous artsy supplies. Together in the 3rd hour we will accomplish an empowering piece of work as we assemble them in the order of our likeness, in whatever way or fashion to take home so that it may remind us of our vision. The intentions is to strengthen communication and share a mutual outcome for ourselves and family. In the final hour we will share our findings, our insights and visions with each other for closure. We will walk away feeling the universe has just received our command and begin to feel ready to receive!
Best of all, there will be a sense of completion, this feeling will stir you in the right direction.
Get ready, You will be inspired!
I am powerful, I am peace, I am patient, I am healthy, I make a difference, I am grateful, I trust in you, I trust in me, I choose love, I am love, I am happy.
Thank you for today’s opportunities,
Thank you for this day about to begin and provide me with new and higher insights.
Create your mantra, write it, snip it, glue it, post it so you can look at it daily. May it remind you of want you want, desire, deserve and trust.
Since I made this last vision board for myself, many life changes have happened. I’m now planning my next one. Each time I create, it opens more paths for me to follow or pursue or contemplate. It’s not always an easy road to my new ventures and endeavours but certainly humbling.
Each time I create I feel more and more significant and believe I have a mission to follow my vocation and contribute to helping people and lead myself and others to develop a better world, a better life.
Each vision board I create I wake up to a new perspective. This is the spiritual growth I anticipate. I know now and convinced the universe does have my back! (Thank you Gabriel Bernstein for your recent book). I’m moving forward now with higher insights. A new vision board in the making! A shift is about to happen!
May you feel the universe tug at your spirit and discover your peace and path to enlightenment.
What’s your goal?
Do you have a one year plan, a two or five year plan? Do you know what you want to accomplish today, by the end of the week or month, year?
Creating a vision or an image to focus on is helpful. The vision of your choice reminds you of what you want, what you desire and all your must do. It’s not about materialism, it is about dreams and dreams feel good because they do come true. We want to feel good don’t we? You have every right to your dreams. You have the right to be happy! Believe it!
Do you love someone and want to sustain your love for each other? Do you want realistic windows of opportunities for a better life for you, for your family and future?
What does your vision look like? What colors do you see? What surrounds your vision and who is there? Which words would you use, what do the words mean to you? Do they speak to you, is it meaningful?
It makes you smile, right?
Set your goals, take the time, it’s your time. Collect your images and words and colours. Because not only is it’s your time… it’s your personal vision and only your life to cultivate. Nurture it!
You will be surprised at what comes together.
The photos are of a recent community group. We really didn’t have very much time for our boards but the sharing was beautiful. I encouraged to take their boards home and continue building on it if they felt the need to do so.
Each person shared their passion with stars in their eyes and energy and I can see before my very eyes their power come alive! Let your light shine!
It took me longer than expected to find the words to reflect the value of my work. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible with images and phrases snipped out of magazine that resonates my desires and passion for you to reach a place of awakening.
At one point I overwhelmed myself with snips and I chuckled over my enthusiastic intent to say and deliver the many empowering messages. I did discover however that there was more that met my eye as I searched for those messages because the activity itself guided me to a realm that impacted me profoundly. I became fixated on an energy that lifted me like a wave and came to a definite conclusion that my life’s work has just begun.
There is more for me to do and offer and grow from and I just can’t wait to discover it all. I am grateful to the stars for guiding me to a place of anticipation and excitement.
I wish the same for you.
Here I go, getting ready for another Vision Board Workshop
While I gather my supplies together at my kitchen table, I decided to update my own vision board. Yes, I will make one for myself to share with you, one that is more meaningful to me at this point of my life. A refresher!
First I list my values: what is important to me, what moves me, inspires me? What am I passionate about? What and who do I love and care about?
I value the strength of my family, the honor of witnessing the growth of a soul in my children, my loyal friends and my long lasting neighbours. I value my work and community; building capacity with families and newcomers. I value our environment and securing it for a better future. I value you, my readers and hoping my words and insights can help and guide you in some way to a better, hopeful and stronger tomorrow.
I am passionate about empowering women from ages 1 to 100 and I care, truly care about peoples feelings and providing a glimmer of inner strength and power that awaits to be recognized and take hold of. My vision and dreams is to facilitate to the community, empowering vision workshops. This dream fulfills me and drives me to work harder.
But first, I got to get busy-lets see what happens.
Recently, work colleagues and I at Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House took sometime to create vision boards that represented our work values, reflection of our social service with the community and best practices. We discussed what it means to be the best we can be and our goals to build capacity with our community as well within our agency. Best Practices are our daily mantra as we continue to strive to understand what more can we do to meet the needs of the community. Creating a personal work vision board took honesty, profound insights, and heartfelt discussions. Not only did it strengthen our purpose, it also provided an opportunity for building a stronger relationship within the team. Love and respect for each other and the community at large was and is our positive outcome at the very least.
My vision is to facilitate vision board workshops in the community and workplace. It gives me great joy for it grows my heart fonder for humanity.
A vision of a deserving life of happiness.We are born to be happy in this life, and to empower ourselves to manifest a vision we dare to dream of our own is an ultimate goal to accomplish. We all have needs, desires, wants and dreams, but rarely do we allow ourselves to reach out and set our minds to attain them. Through the practice of vision boards we provide ourselves an opportunity to bring our dreams to light, to allow to surface so that we may be reminded of what we are worth and deserving of.
Our dreams are on standby waiting for our command!
Tell me, what’s your vision?
I had the most amazing time yesterday facilitating a Vision Board workshop. I just love sharing the power of vision boards and explaining just how incredible the results can be. Vision Boards have always been in my life whether they were a small collage of places to travel, expressions of love, or reflections of contemplated visions of the many careers I wanted to explore.
For the most part the experience was always inspiring and profoundly personal ….. I couldn’t always explain or articulate what my board was about to another person but I did know this, it made me feel good to look at it like a work of art, a masterpiece that no one else could duplicate. It also was a work of feelings/emotions that resonated deep within, that only me, myself, and I understood.
And so yesterday I observed the process of the women go from uncertainty to certainty, at the end of the hour they all shared their finished vision with confidence and walked away with determination-ready to conquer and ready to receive their visions of desires and dreams.
“Manifest away” I say, But remember the secret to manifesting your vision is your Faith, never give up in YOU!
Believe in the right to be Happy!
