The Power Of Vision Boards
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I love the concept of the Vision Board. You may have heard about Vision Boards. They are very simple. To make a Vision Board take a piece of card or even thick paper, some adhesive and some magazines. You will also need some scissors if you don't want to use tearing as a technique.

I like to lay out everything on a table and pull up a chair so as to get comfortable. I put on some music - of a soft and meditative type or music to enhance creativity. It is said that Mozart is good for creative pursuits. When I have the setting how I like it and maybe a glass of wine and adequate soft light and I feel comfortable seated at my table then I'll begin.

Without thinking I start to leaf through the magazines and whenever I come across an image that attracts me I will tear or cut it out. I make a pile of images that appeal to me in that moment. Remember I am not thinking about what I'm doing. I just see an appealing image, remove it from the magazine and add it to the pile of images that I'm collecting.

I usually keep putting aside images until I feel that I will have quite a lot more than I will need to cover my board. All the while I am enjoying listening to the music, sipping my wine and not paying attention to the images that I'm collecting beyond noticing that they appeal to me in the moment. I pay no regard to where I'll put them on the board at this stage. I'm simply collecting appealing images.

When I have more than enough images piled up I move to the next stage of the Vision Board process. Now I pick up an image from the pile. I check that the image is still appealing to me. If the image is still appealing then I'll apply some adhesive to the back of the image. Now I'll 'feel' the 'right' place for the picture on the board. I'll stick the picture down where it 'feels right'. I repeat the feeling and sticking processs until I've covered the board. As I feel where to place the images and stick them down at this stage I am also deciding whether to overlap images or to butt them up. To some extent my earlier choice to cut or tear the pictures will influence how I deal with them at this stage. My intention at this stage is to cover my board with images that make a harmonious whole when viewed from a short distance.

The purpose of my Vision Board? Well, to manifest my desires, of course. I'll elaborate on that aspect in another article soon. I will also be writing about Mind Movies soon too.
