It's long overdue but I finally created a NEW full moon vision board...
These full moons seem to catch me unawares and they go by and then I feel like I've lost the opportunity to manifest my hopes and dreams. Now, I know that we all have the ability to manifest our hopes and dreams at ANY TIME but I believe in the power of the full moon and I tend to turn into a "lunatic" when one passes me by ;)
(check out this beautiful image of the Harvest Full Moon at Astronomy Picture of the Day - it's magical and gorgeous!)
"Why do I turn into a lunatic", you may be asking. Well, when I looked around the blogosphere and saw other vision boards I realized that my boards are loaded with more WORDS than IMAGES and I thought "I must be doing this wrong - no wonder my dreams aren't manifesting for me!"...see how I'm sounding like a lunatic??!?!!
there sure are a LOT of words in this older vision board!
A good friend pointed out that it was a bit strange for a visual person such as myself to create word-heavy "vision" boards, but I realized that I'm not just a visual artist, I'm a literary one too - I love books, reading and I enjoy writing here at my blog, not to mention helping others with their writing by editing their work on occasion...maybe not so surprising to have such word-heavy "vision" boards after all!
As another dear friend pointed out, she loves my writing and thinks I "paint pictures with my words" - that was so lovely to hear!
But I felt that this time around, it was time to focus on images that resonated with me, from a subconscious level, and try to keep the words to a minimum. I looked for some images I could use as a backdrop to some phrases I created and I think this vision board has really come together for me this time...
this vision board just feels right!
I've focused on three key phrases that sum up what I want in my life right now: using my skills and talents to create more money in my life, creative fun in work and play with happy, beautiful and artistic GREAT people...
When I described this board to my awesome Life Coach in our session last night, he asked what the overall feeling of my vision board was, what did it represent to me. I knew immediately:
Freedom in work and play, freedom to know that there ARE infinite possibilities, that the future is WIDE OPEN for me...and that I deserve all this and more. The images of my vision board indicate that freedom with so much expansive sky filling the page.
I think this vision board will work this time!
