A primary tool I use from my tool box to assist me in creating a life of abundance is the Dream/Vision Board. For years I used a poster board to post notes and photos of things I desired to bring into my life. The photo pictured above features my current dream board that was suggested in the book Feng Shui Your Life by Jayme Barrett. "Displaying your wishes and goals in one place provides you with the whole picture. Each manifestation board is a visual representation, a blueprint for the success you want your life to emulate. As you look at it every day, the images become imprinted both consciously and subconsciously. You become what you focus on."
Each year my wife and I discuss our goals and ambitions for the approaching year and come to an agreement on what we want to manifest during the coming year. Doing this magnifies our efforts to bring about positive outcomes. We always dream big but also realize the majority of the postings are not going to magically appear in our life. We have to also work on an action plan.
When we posted a picture of our dream kitchen and dining room we agreed that we would transfer our travel budget to savings for remodeling our kitchen. That year the stock market did exceptionally well allowing us to draw from our savings to pay for the project. Since I have such a passion for travel I still posted my dream trips on the dream board. I realized the remodeling project was the first priority. That year we did it all thanks to the strong visualization tool that the dream board offers. While the contractors were working on the remodeling projects we took a trip with the family to Disney World. Later that year we traveled to our favorite city, New York.
Twenty years ago I posted I wanted to be a speaker to reach a broad audience at our company’s headquarters in Switzerland. I was very excited about a program I established on Creative Marketing. At the time of the posting I did not know an International Marketing Conference was scheduled or had ever existed. The following testimony is one of the most powerful manifestations I’ve experienced. Many of my family and friends became believers in the power of posting your dreams, desires and passions to live a life of abundance.
In early September of that year I received a call from the Vice President of our company inviting me and my wife to join him traveling first class with all expenses paid for a week in Switzerland to speak at an international Marketing Conference on Creative Marketing. My wife and I were stunned and awed when I received that phone call. I have always been a believer in this tool of manifestation but this topped everything I had previously experienced.
The week between Christmas and New Year's Day offers a great opportunity to re-stock your tool box with tools to assist you in having a life of abundance for 2016. I believe the dream board is the foundation in achieving the abundance we seek.
I will include the following new posting on my 2016 dream board:
“I live in a positive environment with people who encourage positive thinking”.
Once these words are posted on the dream boards of thousands of people a major shift in positive thinking will occur in the way people perceive the world they live in. It all begins with us.
