Soul Coaching: Creating a Vision Board

Part of the Soul Coaching program is creating a Vision Board. Making a collage of what you want in your life. I have a story to share. Those of you that know me, yes, I always have a tale to tell.

Many years ago we moved into a big new house and we were going to get new furniture for the living room. I was in no hurry to fill it up with just anything. I had an idea of what I wanted and it wasn’t in any store that I was looking in. I began searching in catalogs and magazines. If I found a picture of something that came close to what I wanted I cut it out and placed it in my special drawer.

I had finally collected pictures of what I thought was the perfect living room. On Sunday mornings I would light a fire in the fireplace and sit down putting the pictures the way I visualized the placement of the furniture. I would sit having a cup of tea enjoying the feeling of my beautiful room. I imagined sitting with my family and friends. I imagined entertaining at the holidays.

Time passed and I began to find pieces that resembled what I wanted and purchased them as they showed up in my life. With each purchase came a sense of satisfaction. Gradually I had the room that I had envisioned.

One evening sitting around the fireplace with my family I hear my daughter gasp “oh my God”. Everyone looked up at her, “Mom, this room looks like the pictures you would place on the floor all the time.”

I smiled. Magic? Coincidence? I believe creating a board establishes focus on what we want keeping us aware of our desire. To look for what we want instead of focusing on what we are moving away from.

Magic? Well yes. I’ve always believed in magic don’t you?

Sometimes it happens in a blink of an eye other times it may take a bit longer. Enjoy each step of the adventure with a clear view of where you are going. Remove the clutter. Put some energy into your board. Don’t just slap something on for the sake of getting it done. Look at it, think about it, this is what you are creating for your future. Feel it in your Soul, let it grow, imagine. Let the magic in.
