Visualization is powerful.

“Creative visualization is real. It’s a powerful force that works to shape future outcomes.”  --Harvard Medical School

Sometimes we need to see it before we can believe it.  One way to see it before it is a reality in your physical experience is to create a vision board.  When you see images of what you desire, you can imagine having what you want more clearly.  It’s a powerful visualization tool because it reminds you to focus upon what you want to create in your life rather than on what might be lacking at the moment.  

When it comes to visualization, we have complete freedom to dream anything we want for ourselves.  Many people lose sight of what they want because they get so caught up in what other people want or what they don’t have.  Their vision for their future becomes tainted by their present “reality” and becomes limited by their limiting beliefs about what they think they can attain.  Your beliefs can be like fences that surround you and cage you in.  Let go of beliefs that limit you or don’t support the vision you have for yourself.  Let yourself indulge in unlimited thinking and expand your imagination of what is possible for you to have.  If you have the ability to imagine it, the universe has the ability to deliver it.  It is only your beliefs that can stop you from realizing your dreams.  You have to reprogram your brain with new beliefs about yourself and your life.  A belief is just a thought you’ve practiced or a continued way a of thinking.  It is not a fact, it is an opinion. 

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.  Impossible is not a fact.  It’s an opinion.  Impossible is not a declaration.  It’s a dare.  Impossible is potential.  Impossible is temporary.  Impossible is nothing.”  --Muhammad Ali

A vision board can help you to practice more positive and unlimited thinking and can help you to create new beliefs about yourself and your life.  Your vision board can be anything you want it to be.  You can put images, words, affirmations, or whatever symbols you like that help you envision your dreams.  The most important thing is that it makes you feel good when you look at it.  Put your vision board somewhere where you can see it regularly and spend a few minutes each day daydreaming about the life you want to create as you gaze at it.  

Tell yourself, “Everything is happening at the right time and everything is unfolding perfectly for me”.  Do not lose hope or your conviction that your dreams will manifest just because you have yet to see the physical evidence of their creation.  Everything that exists first began with thought.  So much of success is about timing.  You can’t force it.  It has to happen at the right time.  Let it unfold.  Follow your instincts.  Trust yourself, trust your vision, trust the universe.  Stay focused on your dreams and keep envisioning yourself living out your fantasies.  

Affirmations for allowing your dreams to become your reality:

“I am focusing on aspects of my life that I like and that feel good to me when I think about them.”

“I am allowing myself to indulge in unlimited thinking and to imagine my life the way that I want it to be.”

“I am enjoying envisioning a fun, beautiful, joyful, abundant future for myself.”

“I am expanding my beliefs about what is possible for me to have.  I am creating all that I desire.”

Lots of love,
