I’ve had quite a few requests on how to make a vision board after featuring one in my music video. So if you’re new to vision boarding here’s some quick tips and tricks to get you started.
If you’re already a seasoned vision boarder I’ve also thrown in a few shots of Channing Tatum without his shirt on. (You’re welcome!) I have some more thoughts on vision boards below as well, especially for those of you who just can’t seem to get the things on your board to manifest into your life.
I made my first vision board several years ago after reading the book, The Secret. The Secret is all about The Law of Attraction, which is basically the theory that your thoughts create your reality and for that reason we need to keep our thoughts as positive as possible.
If you were anything like me, you read the book, made a vision board filled with mansions and six figure checks, and when none of them came into fruition, figured that either The Law of Attraction didn’t work or you just weren’t thinking positive enough thoughts to get things going. The truth is the Law of Attraction does work, the problem is it works with our subconscious thoughts as well as our conscious ones, and we can’t control our subconscious thoughts. They’re subconscious! We can try to figure out what they are and work to change them but that takes time.
So in the meantime does that mean that we’re vision boarding duds? Not at all.
The best thing I’ve found to do is to think of my vision board as a suggestion board to the Universe, or better yet an activation board for what is inside me ready to emerge. It’s like a way to awaken and become more conscious of my Divine self and my life purpose. And if my life purpose involves a Channing Tatum-type to make me pumpkin pancakes on the weekend, than so be it.
My main point here is that if you put something on my board and it doesn’t materialize, try not to get frustrated. After you make your vision board, let go of the results. The truth is, the Powers That Be understand what is best for us, much better than we do at this level of consciousness.The best we can do is just follow our Divine guidance and be grateful for the things we do have. I realize this is difficult sometimes. I’ve had to let go of a lot over the years, like my dream to be an Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, or an internet reality star.
Which kind of proves my point on how I often I really get confused about what’s best for me. You can take it from here, Universe. Thank you!
