Repurposed Materials become Vision Boards to Achieve your 2015 Goals
I do love to repurpose! When I receive holiday greeting cards I enjoy them for the holidays on my mantel; then, look through them to find meaning, colors, designs that I want to cherish for the whole year. I was excited to see that Patience Brewster feels the same about cherishing the holidays year round! If you’re not familiar, Patience is an artist and designer of unique ornaments and figurines. And, I put parts of the cards on my yearly Vision Board using the principles of Feng Shui. I bless and release those cards that I will not keep, thanking the senders for their thoughtfulness.
Here are some examples of how and what I re-purposed this year. I hope you consider doing this to keep special holiday mementos on your Vision Board.
First of all, every magazine tear sheet is an example of repurposing my magazines (mostly Oprah!)
Here are a few other tidbits of how I repurposed holiday greeting cards on my 2015 Vision Board:
1- Upper right: Love and Marriage
— pink and gold card stock from Holiday card,
2- Top center: Fame and Reputation
— shows my guardian angel over my shoulder from a Holiday card,
3- Upper left: Wealth & Prosperity
— Holiday card (BELIEVE) plus a purple bird from atop a gift box I received,
4- Bottom left: Knowledge & Self-Cultivation
— trees and beach were a holiday card from a photographer,
5- Bottom center: Career
— background was an envelope I liked that contained a greeting card.
Adding your own photo increases the power of the Vision Board. For example, in the Vision Board above that is my head on the body wearing that red bathing suit. That is not my body — I do want a red bathing suit! Tried for one last year and going for it again. Keep on trying!
There’s a long-standing Harvard study that proves the efficacy of writing your goals. Some people prefer creating Vision Boards instead of (or in conjunction with) written goals. Thoughts are things. What you visualize becomes your reality.
I would love to see your Vision Board and I wish you all the things you put on your Vision Board this year!
