I have been creating vision boards for more than a decade ever since the movie the Secret came out. I was fascinated by John Assaraf’s story about manifesting his home. It was then that I decided to give the Law of Attraction a try.
I came to learn that the Law of Attraction is a universal law that works just like gravity. You don’t have to believe in it for it to work. It works 24/7 with or without us. And just like the law of gravity has superior laws the can supersede it like the Law of Lift that allows planes to fly, the Law of Attraction also has superior laws that are just being discovered…but that is a more advanced discussion. Let’s master some basics first!
When I first started to work more consciously with the Law of Attraction, I had a new retail flooring store. I put the intention out to create $40,000 for the month. I didn’t tell my partner at the time, but as the month went along he commented, “I think this is one of the busiest months we’ve ever had!” I just smiled. When I totaled up the receipts for the month, including one check that I knew had been sent but not yet received, the total came to….$40,404.40!! Four 4’s! According to Doreen Virtue, the 4’s mean the the angels are all around you. This was all the validation I needed to become hooked.
Since then, people would see my vision board in my store office and inquire. They could feel it was special somehow. I would draw out my map for them and tell them how to apply it. Eventually, I created a 50 page workbook and my quarterly workshops sprang from there.
I have created amazing life experiences from these boards…trips to the Amazon, Machu Picchu, Buenos Aires, a convertible Jaguar that I paid cash for, money, love, joy, passion, amazing health, connections, gratitude, mentors, fun, healing, and so much more.
I have also made mistakes…well there are no mistakes…so I have learned much in perfecting this art and want to share some of the things I have learned so you can also have the most powerful creations.
Here are the top 5 mistakes (wink wink) people most often make when creating their boards:
MISTAKE NUMBER 1:
You create your vision board in a low vibration.
People often create boards because they are unhappy in their life and they hope they will be able to perk their life up by manifesting what they really desire in life.
The truth is that you will manifest your board in the vibration it was created in. Unfortunately, what you desire exists in a much higher vibration. You must get into this higher vibration first, before you create your board.
MISTAKE NUMBER 2:
You are not clear about what you desire.
Most people are not able to manifest what they desire because they do not really know what they desire. They spend most of their thoughts focused on what they DON’T want.
Brian Tracy quoted Earl Nightingale, “You become what you think about most of the time.”
MISTAKE NUMBER 3:
You put random pictures in random places.
You can still manifest things in this way, however, if you want to create the most powerful boards, there is a specific place to put specific things that you desire to have, be and do for the most powerful results.
Random pictures in random places will create random results.
MISTAKE NUMBER 4:
You cram too much on your board.
This is especially true for those creating a board for the first time. Since how you do anything is how you do everything, notice if you tend to cram too much in your life thus diminishing your joy.
When you look at your board, you want to feel excitement, inspiration, and motivation. Not overwhelm and confusion.
MISTAKE NUMBER 5:
You forget about your board.
Your vision board or dream board is a tool to help you focus on what you truly desire. You must connect with it daily to actively participate in the law of attraction.
Duration and intensity on what you DO DESIRE are key factors in making the Law of Attraction work in your favor. The more often you focus on your board and connect with strong feelings, the sooner you will attract what you truly desire.
