Setting Your Intentions, Getting Clear, and Achieving Your Dreams

By Jodi Friedman

Have you ever created a vision board? If you have not yet, you might be wondering what all the excitement is about. If you are one of the many who believes in their power, then you know exactly why you continue making them: to bring more focus and reflection to your successful life.

How can creating a vision board become an incredible, life-transforming project that leads you to a better life?
The real key to a powerful vision board that will manifest amazing potential is to create your board with intention and clarity. Getting clear about your purpose, your job and your relationships is a must. Also, get clear about what is blocking you from happiness right now in these areas. What daily habits keep you stuck and away from your dreams? Be open to releasing the blocks you have in order to make space, so your new expressions have room to manifest.

I have made at least 10 different vision boards where everything placed on them had been manifested. This is why I am so passionate to share my knowledge with others. In my experience, in an open and positive workshop environment, people can share enthusiastically to create a powerful and effective vision board. The first step in attracting your dreams is to allow yourself to be creative and recognize what desires live deep inside of you. Be careful what you ask for and be intentional.

A vision board is typically a poster board of your glued images evoking positive feelings that you would like to have more of in your life.

The idea is that when you surround yourself with images of who and what you desire to become, your attention focuses easily as you get out of your own way. When you start becoming extremely clear about what you wish to experience, you will notice how your attention to your desire will bring it to you. This is the Law of Attraction at work; a universal law that works naturally. You can achieve the results you are looking for, and more, by also creating a daily trigger to attract your desired outcome.

Here are some basic steps to create a vision board where you can manifest your dreams:

• Decide in which areas of your life you want to create change: relationships, health, career, hobbies, financial, spiritual, romance

• Using your intention and journaling your feelings; create clarity around at least three to five areas that you are ready to shift

• Find pictures that describe the things that you’re choosing. Create or find phrases that clarify your goals and dreams

• Listen to soothing music as you flip through magazines or pictures you already have

• Cut and paste pictures onto different areas of your board that stimulate you to start the creation process

• Add phrases or positive sayings to support the pictures you chose

• Place your completed vision board in a place where you can see it daily

• Affirm your vision every day and ALLOW the energy to flow as you draw in the things you desire

The Super Glue To Manifesting Your Dreams
The way in which you can access the secret sauce to your goals and dreams lies in one area not limited by your conscious mind. In my vision board workshops, I take clients into the treasure box of their subconscious mind, where authentic truth and compassion live. Once tapped in, a person’s inner guidance can encourage them to take a deep dive into the unknown.

Can everybody do this? Yes, they can! By allowing their thoughts to relax through breathing techniques, they can bring out what has remained hidden below the 60,000 thoughts they have every day.

And here is the final ingredient: Once you are clear in your intentions and how you will feel having it, act as if you already have it. Create that experience in your thoughts, words, and actions for yourself and you become your new design. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference when you tell it and show it that you are truly happy.

Get quiet and slow yourself down to change your direction positively right now. A great new vision board can change things around you; making life more fun, fresh, and easy. Just Breathe and Be. Do. Have.
