On the ICF Linkedin group discussion, I was recently asked if I would share how I use vision board with my clients. A visual board create a sacred space that displays what YOU want and actually brings it to life. What we focus on expands. Your Focus Lens keeps the focus on your vision.
When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing short visualization exercises throughout the day. Olympians had always used imagery as mental training. According to the popular book The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”
Your vision board should focus on how YOU want to FEEL, not just on things that you want. There aren’t any rules. You choose the pictures, photos, images, quotes, words, headlines, colours that you like most. You can handwrite too. Use anything that inspire and motivate you. Think about where you want to have your visual board: home, work, bedroom, screensaver on your laptop, iPad, computer, desk…
First, think about what your goals are in the following areas: relationships, career and finances, home, travel, personal growth (including spirituality, social life, education) and health. Then from your goals and aspirations, think about what you want on your vision board. You can leave blank space to add on later on.
A visual board can be achieved in one hour and can be done during a 1 to 1 with a client (work or remotely). When I have done this work remotely with a client, we have shared screens and it worked very well. My clients always feel energised and inspired from this thinking environment.
