Visionary Vision Board

The new Oprah magazine arrived yesterday. As usual, I read Martha Beck’s column first. Martha and I are members of the same tribe. If you have read Martha, you know what I am talking about. Her article this month is on vision boards, but not the ones loaded with pictures of stacks of money and a tropical beach or two. I like making vision boards and have a couple of old ones around here someplace. Martha advises that you make the board and then forget about it.* Great! I usually can’t find mine a week or two after I make it. That’s pretty much my style. Some would call it messy but I just call it clutter.  Since I frequently move things around with no rhyme or reason, I often find that I need to wander from room to room while thinking, “now where could that do-hickey be?”  Not that I have lots of do-hickeys, but you know.  OK, so I read the article. Nice.  Then today I perused an email from Oprah (not really from her, but you know).  I clicked on a link that took me to a place where I could (TA-DA!) create my own virtual vision board. Fun!  There was a great selection of images and I could type/create banners. Mine said “Life is Magical”, “Nature”, “Travel the World”, and “Celebrations and Jubilation”.  I played with the vision board for awhile (the program is very much like Microsoft’s Power Point) then printed it out. I love it!  It’s full of pictures of nature, a rock etched with the word SMILE, a castle, a scrapbook, a passport and money, fresh vegetables and a grouping of lit candles. I’m looking at it right now and it brings me peace and joy.  Especially the lotus blossom in the middle.  Namaste, y’all, namaste.

*(Reminds me of the premise to ‘set your intention and then be unattached to the outcome’.)

    I love you, Pam! You truly ARE magical! When I last visited Dagmar, we had seen that vision board thing on Oprah + Dagmar got right into it. You are inspiring me to try it now. I fear that I’m not near as creative as you, though – although our visions are similar. 🙂 Thanks for keeping this Blog – it will inspire me on a daily basis – of that, I’m sure. ♥
