Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. 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."
Psychology Today reported that the brain patterns activated when a weightlifter lifts heavy weights are also similarly activated when the lifter just imagined (or visualized) lifting weights. So how can we use visualization to help us get closer to our goals and dreams? Have you heard of vision boards but not actually created one yourself?
Vision boards are fun to create, they serve as a valuable tool to motivate and inspire you and can help you define and set life goals. Creating a sacred place that displays what you want actually helps to bring it to life. You have to name it to claim it. In other words, you can’t get what you want until you know what it is you want. Vision boards provide the opportunity to sit and think about what it is you want for your life. They should represent what you want and how you want to feel. Once you know the things that are important to you, creating a visual representation takes it to another level.
Here are just a few of the benefits of vision boarding:
What should you put on your vision board? Anything that inspires and motivates you! Your vision board is your opportunity to send a message to the Universe that this is what you want to bring to life. Think about your goals and desires in the area of your career, relationships, finances, home, travel and personal growth.
