Vision Board Making
10:00-3:30pm. The Classroom at The Center for Mind, Body & Spirit, 7647 Delmar Blvd. Cost: Love Offering. What is a Vision Board: A vision board is a visual representation of changes and goal you want to achieve. The visual collage is a great way for visual learners to manifest what’s best for you by shifting the energy you are sending out around your intentions. How to Make a Vision Board: supplies needed: Poster or foam board, Magazines and pictures and words, Glue (Rubber cement works well, Elmer’s doesn’t, but glue sticks also work), Two-five hours of time. How to make a Vision Board: Preparation (optional): Do a meditation (or as many as needed) to know what changes and manifestations you want. Record what you want on paper, electronically or in your mind. How to make a Vision Board: Making it happen! Go through magazines and cut out pictures, words and images you like or are drawn to. Just make a pile of them. Once you have a large pile of cut outs, go through the pile and discard the ones you no longer want. Then just start laying the pictures on the board. Let your intuition guide you. There is no right way to do this. One person might make sections for health, relationships, work and family and someone else may mix everything together. It all works. Now glue the cut outs onto the board. Some people hang their boards, so they can see them often; others put them away and pull them out a year later to see what manifested. I have been making vision boards for a few years with the same group of people. We always share about our boards, first we talk about last year’s board and what manifested from it and then what we put on this year’s board. This is a great tradition. Start it this year. Call The Center to reserve your spot. 314.725.6767.
