Women on the Journey
The January Woman on the Journey monthly meeting will be held on the fourth Saturday, January 27, 2018. Coffee 9:30-10; Program 10-12. There will be no meeting in December.
In January, we will be holding our second annual session of making Vision Boards!! (Photos of a few vision boards follow this announcement.) All material will be provided; if you have personal items, please feel free to bring. Some examples of last year boards can be found at the end of this announcement.
As with any visualization, vision boards work with your brain through your subconscious. A vision board is your image of the future. It represents your hopes, dreams and goals for your spiritual life, your health and how you want to feel in life. The saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words” supports the fact our mind responds most strongly to visual stimulation. Pictures along with your emotions are powerful motivators to achieving your dream life.
Vision boards don’t always have to be a physical board; it might be your computer’s screensaver, background on your phone or pages in your planner. Observe your actions throughout the day and determine the best place for this board to be in your view frequently. We will start with a poster format for our gathering. You can take a picture of it and use it as your screen saver!
As you begin to gather images, photos or poems you find from supplies provided, or that you may have brought, use images that best represent not only the ultimate goal but the emotions and feelings around the goal. Go through your images, quotes, words and decide what belongs where. You will have way more than you will ever use, and that is okay. A few clear and concise images will serve you better than too many images that are distracting. You could save them for later use.
At home, find a place to display your new vision board where you will see it regularly. Creating it is an important part of the process because it clarifies your goals, but seeing it regularly is just as important. Keeping your vision in the forefront of your mind will help you do the things that will propel you forward towards your goals.
As your dreams begin to manifest, recognize your achievements and acknowledge that it’s working. When you are ready for a new set of goals, create a new board leaving this one intact. Don’t tear down all the good work you have done. Your heart will smile.
