Dreaming & Scheming: My 2012 Vision Board

I’d planned to publish my goalsetting post today but due to a few technical glitches (ahem, web host problems), I was unable to access my blog and finish it off – so tomorrow it is! Never fear, it’ll be worth the wait!

Everyone I’ve spoken to in the past week has been full of enthusiasm for 2012 which thrills me to bits, and I’ve had quite a few people ask me about vision boards and how to create one for the shiny New Year.

If you’re anything like me, you love a visual example, so I thought I’d share my newest one with you so that you have something to work off when you’re dreaming up your own board. If you’d like a step-by-step, I wrote a pretty comprehensive article on how to construct a vision board a little while back.

For even more juicy inspiration for dreamsetting, the gorgeous Jess from The Wellness Warrior has pulled together a stellar post, which I’m honoured to be a part of (I should note that my career/ blog goals are on a separate board because I ran out of room!) Head on over and check out Jess’ post and her board to get the creativity flowing. Oh and Universe? Count me in for Rich, Happy, Hot in NYC!

+ Do you have any questions about vision boards I can help you with? A friend asked me the difference between my vision board and my goals/ intentions list, and I explained that the way I do it – and feel free to do it your own way – is that I use my vision board as a visual representation of my aspirations, and it’s generally the bigger stuff I’d like to manifest (you’ll see I have a dream to own an amazing property in Byron Bay, and I’d love to write books that make the New York Times Best-Seller list – of course!), whereas my goals are more achieveable things I’d like to have crossed off within a specific timeframe.

There’s an element of impossibility with my vision board stuff but it represents where I dream of being in my life. There’s an energy attached to it, and to pull everything together, I include my words to live by for the year and hang my board and my goals/ intentions list beside each other. I find this is a really powerful way to manifest my desires -and it’s worked for me many times in the past.

+ What about you, do you have a vision board? Have you ever manifested anything on your board? Tell me all about it!

  1. love this! my husband and i have a file a our computer filled with images that are our goals. we also have one that is filled with goals that have been achieved, like our marriage, our big trip last year and all sorts of different things. thats always encouraging to look at, and is a nice reminder of what we DO HAVE and how blessed we are.

    think it’s time we printed it all out and stuck it on a real pin board though!

  2. Firstly, let’s talk about your photos – WOW! Amazing, I’m so glad you commented so I could discover your site. Straight to my bookmarks it goes.

    Secondly, I love that you and your husband keep pics for the stuff you want AND the stuff you’ve achieved/ received. So nice to be able to look back with gratitude at what has already arrived in your life. Thanks for stopping by xx

  3. Rachel…

    I want to share that I FINALLY created my very own vision board! I understand now that the idea isn’t a new one, but I first came across it on your blog a few months ago. I tried desperately to make one. I got frustrated, couldn’t think of what I wanted, couldn’t find inspiration – my vision was clouded, I guess. So it’s been nagging me constantly for the last few months… but I finally took the time to do it yesterday! It took 5-6 hours to find the right images, put it all together, edit it down.

    I like your words to live by as well, which my board is missing. In fact, I figured out my board is missing a few things but right now I’m settling happily with “good enough.” My words to live by will be the next step.

    I really like how simple your board is. It seems like a sign of knowing what you want in life.. Mine is still quite cluttered, but I know what the most important things are. It made me really think about some things that I need to change in my life to move in the right direction.

    Thank you for sharing this! Your writing and projects and pictures are always so inspiring. I always come here to find some beautiful inspiration. :)

  4. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other
    blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work.
