Last weekend was the first ever Vision Board Class held @ Mission Fitness, LLC and it was even more rewarding than I had anticipated! It is humbling to be allowed into someone else's heart and help them find their way. That is an enormous amount of trust that I don't take lightly.
This was no arts and crafts class, ladies and gentlemen! Well... it was, but it's also so much more! What we place our attention on we create for ourselves. This may seem like an obvious concept for some, but let me ask you, are you are satisfied with your life as is? If the answer is no, then is the concept really that obvious?
Other Vision Board classes have you riffling through countless magazines, searching for pictures of the perfect "everything" - the tall, dark and handsome man, adorable children, cellulite free body, hair that never flattens, a six figure job that also allows for work/life balance, and the mini mansion...Participants are told that if they concentrate REALLY REALLY HARD they will get everything on their board!!
That may even work for some people, but what I found that a better way to identify and create what you want is to do a little soul searching. It knows what it wants, so why not ask it?
I took these very open 11 people through a guided meditation to identify a feeling associated with various aspects of their life - their life's service, life calling (job), family, friendship, home, ..... Time was then provided to leisurely looking through magazines with instruction to simply pull out anything that feels good. That's right...GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD!! No thought necessary here....
With dimmed light, soft background music, sipping specialty tea provided by Down to Earth Coffee House, each person was given the time and space they needed to create a board of images that spoke to them in one way or another.
They were taken through a second meditation and learned how to heartlink to each of the images (which will be discussed in future classes), reminding them all over again of the feeling associated with these images...
What they are left with is a visual of their soul's desire. Intellect need not apply....the heart has this covered! What happened next was breathtaking - sharing on a soul level, lots of aha! moments and excitement to explore a new direction, or rekindle something already had.
