“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate but that we are powerful beyond measure…”
At the beginning of a new year, whether you do ‘resolutions’ or not, the very act of celebrating a renewed start generally gives us all pause for thought about the year just passed and what lies ahead. For me, the past few years have been a bit more volcanic. Mortality in its various guises – death or illness, even love and babies tends to remind you that life is short and makes you question whether you are living a purposeful life. Nearly two years ago I left my secure job to find my purpose and really practice the art of living. And wow – this living thing is pretty good.
This year I am adding Vision Board workshops to my business offerings because I want to share with as many people as I can, the time, space and tools to get clarity and set the intention to live their own dreams whether that be a new career, better health, more holidays or a new love.
Vision Boards are a creative tool and a process to get clarity on who you want to be, what you want to do in life and what you want to have. Is it a bit woo-woo? Only if you want it to be. Plenty of people, including famous ones, like Katy Perry and Oprah swear by setting intentions in their lives using vision boards.
Vision Boards work through the power of intention using images or words to imagine the life you want. Intention is different to goal-setting. Where goal setting is practical and measurable, setting an intention uses the force of energy created through focussing on what you want to expand the way your brain sees opportunity and with a few extra tools, you can tweak your neural pathways for even greater effect.
Do they work? I can honestly say, that many years ago when I was first introduced to the concept of vision boards while training in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) I saw the power of manifestation in simple things like finding a car space (that was fun) and more important matters like getting a promotion (which I did). Like all things its not a quick cut and paste – you do need to put some work in. When life gets in the way and you lose all focus, you’ll certainly know the opposite of the positive energy of clarity and purpose, you know, that powerlessness you feel when you don’t know how you’ll ever get out of the rut you are in.
