So way back in 2010 my bestie Margot encouraged me to do a vision board. Now for those of you that do not know what a vision board is, it is a collection of photos, magazine clippings, quotes, words.... well just about any visual reminder that has everything to do with you. -- Lisa Schmidt
Acting on your dreams is really much better than visualizing it on your mind and it even surpasses the power of declaration. By actually taking some concrete steps to build your visions and goal you are inviting all the good energy to fill you. Constantly looking at those images will remind you constantly of your plans and goals and by doing so you are making your dream within reach. So having a visual journal or art journaling as Lisa calls it, you are already laying the foundation to your dreams.
These steps also help you evaluate the exact nature of your dream. You will have a free taste of the exact feeling once your goal is achieved even if it is not yet there. So you will still have the time to make amendments or resolutions afterwards.
There are many avenues to explore in a visual journal...the possibilities are endless as well as the results. It may also serve as a mirror of your self or a historical footnote. A visual diary grow on a case to case basis dependent on your true identity. Be honest as possible...anyway, journals are not created to please others.
To give you an idea I presents here some Schmidt's art journal.
In the future I will let you peek at some of the pages in my Visual Manuscripts...for now, I encourage you to start making your own art journaling. You don't have to be a good artist to own one...just be yourself.
