Use a Vision Board and the Law of Attraction to Attract What You Want This Year
Kathleen Oswalt, MS, RDN, LD, CLT says “vision boards are permission to dream BIG! My dream came true when I followed my passion and quit my job April 29, 2017 to start my private practice and become the Food Sensitivity Detective!” Congratulations Kathleen!
The end of the year or beginning of the year is a great time to get focused on what we want and create your dream life you have been waiting for.
The most common mistake people make when attempting to achieve goals is they chase goals, similar to chasing butterflies. Hard. Work. Struggle. Dump the struggle and instead of a long list of goals and to-do’s this year, have fun and create a vision board and use the Law of Attraction. National Vision Board Day is always celebrated the second Saturday of the year.
As the Chief Corporate Registered Dietitian and Manager of Clinical Wellness at Healthstat, Monica McCorkle, MS, RDN, CDE, NBC-HWC, DAILY focuses on abundance and uses the Law of Attraction to attract what she wants. She has created a loving, meaningful life centered with love, sprinkled with joy, laughter and celebration. This all brought to her by focusing her heart on the positive in life, daily gratitude, thanks and the gift of giving. Love your focus on abundance Monica!
A vision board helps you:
- Give attention to your intentions, values and dreams
- Focus on who you want to be and what you want
- Gives you a visual forward focus guide to your future self
- Do “life reset”—and it’s enjoyable fun
Elizabeth Berry, MS, RDN feels her power by capturing the magic of her dreams with her vision board. Liz’s formula is “the magic of dreams aligned with daily visualization = power,” Love this Liz!
What is a vision board?
A vision board or a dream board is often a collage of pictures and words that speak to our heart and soul about what we want to attract into our life. It is a visual map of WHO we want to be and WHAT we want to do and HOW we want to live. It is a powerful way to make our intentions more attainable and tangible.
The vision board we create reminds us of what is important to us and what we need to focus on. It is similar to when you buy a silver car and suddenly you notice lots of other silver cars.
Chris Shuff, RDN, LDN, loves to live his life to the fullest just as much as he loves to help others do the same by losing the extra weight that is weighing them down and keeping them from reaching for the stars. Way to go Chris!
How to start
Find words and pictures that inspire you, excite you and you want in your future life. Include anything that speaks to your heart. Don’t overanalyze. Organize and paste your pictures and words onto a big piece of paper. Give it a title and a date.
Put the vision board where you will see it every day so you give attention to your intentions. Look at it every day. Really feel it and allow yourself to get excited by it. Before you go to sleep is a powerful time to review it as it helps you to absorb it in your dreams. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. For example, if your vision is to go to Hawaii, envision that you are already there and can smell the Plumeria flowers and feel the trade winds.
Nina G Rocca, RDN, LDN, CPT pursues her dreams by staying focused and driven. She has this vision board on her wall and feels it every single day! Love your tenacity and use of the Law of Attraction, Nina!
Remember that the Law of Attraction states, “Like attracts like” by focusing on negative or positive thoughts you can get negative or positive results. You are a magnet. A vision board is positive focus for you to attract what you want.
Napoleon Hill reminds us, “All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination. Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.”
Allison Boyd, RDN, CYT, CDE’s vision is to have the freedom to create the life she loves while transforming what it means to be a diabetes educator and yoga teacher for her community. Her formula is Dreams + Work = Success! Congratuations Allison!
Create your vision. Give your vision and desire attention and allow it to happen.
Remember to celebrate once your vison has happened. It’s a big deal!
You have one life to live, just imagine it was the one you loved!
Host a vision party for your friends. Post photos on social media using #VisionBoardDay.
This is my vision board which I keep by my computer. Daily I am reminded that I am the “missing piece” and need to “get busy” and honor my vision so I can reside in Hawaii one month each year. The picture of Gary and I is from our Hawaiian honeymoon thirty plus years ago which puts a smile on my heart and jump starts my actions to attract Hawaii into my life. Aloha!!
Chris, Kathleen, Allison, Liz, Nina, Monica and I would love to see your vision boards!
