“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world." – Joel A. Barker
As someone who has always been a natural visualizer, I thought creating a vision board would be a breeze. But what I learned from my first experience was that visualization alone isn't enough to make your dreams a reality.
At first, it was fun to dream and find images that aligned with my dreams, but once it was finished, I sat back and thought, "What now?"
With that said, here is why I went beyond the vision board. 👊
If you're like me, someone introduced you to the concept of vision boards, but you were never given the full story. For me, I was left with vague advice like "visualize what I desire" and "act as if," which left me feeling disconnected from my dreams and goals.
Like most of you, I kept trying and kept getting disappointed. The more disappointment I had, the farther I got from my dreams. But I also realized that I had experienced success. I was so focused on what I didn't have; I forgot to appreciate what I did have.
This realization shifted my approach. I started to truly immerse myself in my visions, visualizing myself in each image, and journaling about the experience I just imagined. This helped me feel more focused and connected to my dreams.
I decided to combine my daily practice with the vision board concept and created what I now call D.R.E.A.M. Blueprint.
The first year was like a scrapbook of my dreams, but things evolved over time. Even through the loss of loved ones and the COVID-19 pandemic, I continued my practice.
What I learned through determination and focus paid off. As I engaged in my practice, things started flowing to me. By the end of 2019, about 75% of what I put into my blueprint had manifested. I got to live in incredible places and never felt worried, sad, or got depressed during the pandemic.
Maybe I didn't manifest a mansion or a million dollars, but things kept falling into place. Since adopting my new approach, I've felt truly unstoppable.
Looking back, I'm grateful for the lessons I've learned about the power of visualization, journaling, and intention-setting. I'm excited to continue using these tools to manifest my dreams and create a life I truly love.
