Just yesterday I was putting the finishing touches on my 2017 vision board and I went to go replace my one from last year with my new beautiful board. I sat there for a moment and took a look at my vision board when some huge realizations appeared.
I didn't realize it until just yesterday that my book and the cover for BLISSFUL LIVING was there on my vision board. The vision for the whole thing came to me one day while in prayer and meditation (as most of my ideas do). What was so crazy is that its almost like it was a magic board that my intuition pulled together. I had so many different names and so many different cover ideas but once I came up with this particular one, it was like a big YES from my gut.
Here is a little breakdown of what I saw. . .
When I realized this, I was so excited that I hopped up and decided to create a video about it because I talk so much about the power of vision boards and I rarely share the things I actually manifest. I also want to share how vision boards aren't just for your dream house or car, they are for your dreams and creating the life that you want to experience. It's basically helping you to design the life of your dreams.
I was letting the frustration of creating the perfect book cover hold me back from creating my book. Subconciously, the vision board helped me gain clarity and manifest my dream to life.
Watch the video below for a little more behind the story. . .
I also wanted to touch on a few other things that manifested from that vision board I created in the beginning of 2016.
*I had the words "from Miami with love" on the board with palm trees. I traveled to Miami 5 times this last year and really feel like I have gotten to experience so much of that city. My best friend moved there so I have a home away from home there. Sudden job opportunities began to pop up, an entrepreneurship conference just happened to be there that year. It pretty much blew my mind.
*I had photos of beautiful high rises that are going to be built in 2018 with architects I love and adore. I've always wanted to live in a high rise but never really thought I would. I imagined myself in a home. I originally just wanted to do interior design in high rises. Turns out this year in October, I moved into my own penthouse condo. It literally happened out of nowhere.
*I have the words "live above all that you love". Which is interesting because my little sister and her baby son decided to move into my building and live a few floors below me. I always say "my heart is downstairs" and its just funny how that turned out.
*I have the words "inspiration is everywhere" and "burgeoning ideas" . This year, I swear, has been my most inspired year. The years before I felt a major lack of true inspiration and this year I was just flowing with it.
*I have several girls in yoga positions because they are such beautiful looking stretches. I never really was super into yoga but in 2016, it was a major habit in my life.
I literally could go on and on about the things that I have experienced on this board.
My biggest hope is that it encourages you to create one for 2017. I've done mine and I have been so laser focused with it. I am so excited to see what happens this year!!!!!
