A few years ago I organized a group of witchy, like-minded women. We post memes and prayer requests and encouragement and meet every few months over coffee or pottery or wine to catch up. Yesterday, my daughter, Shyanne hosted our second annual Vision Board event. Everyone came baring old magazines, scissors, markers, stickers, glue, and ideas for a good life.
This is my favorite event. We fall into the photos of magazines and laugh and yell out, “If you see a picture of _____, tell me!” We create words and promises and our future. We compare them to last year’s boards and talk about what all manifested (almost all of the ideas), and what has changed. How much a life can change in a year’s span.
Living in the present is important and breathing in memories of today will keep us focused and filled with gratitude. The past is bittersweet and the future is unknown and filled with equal parts fate and decision. The vision board is our decision part. It helps clarify where we are and where we want to be. Just like writing things down, the vision board takes ramblings of thought and places them into a road map for the year. And effective way to create one’s best life.
Today, create your own vision board. Or better yet, arrange a group of friends to come over and create as well. Riding lessons optional.
- Guard your mind.
- Become your own doctor.
- Adopt a plant based lifestyle.
- Improve your relationships.
- Change your perspective.
- Honor your spirituality.
- Envision your future.
It may seem like my series on How to Live Your Best Life is a bit extreme. Indeed, not everyone will be willing to follow all of these practices. I, myself, follow these practices and I can tell you that they work. Guarding my mind gives me peace of mind as I am not filling it with fear and negativity. Becoming my own doctor puts power back in my own hands because I know how to make medicine and how to treat many issues. Adopting a plant based diet has given me permission to love every animal I see without guilt, has greatly improved my health, and has eliminated depression. The phone calls I have been making have made me feel closer to those I love and have connected me to people beyond the screen. Changing my words has given me more gratitude for everything I have. Honoring my spirituality has connected me to the unseen world around me. And envisioning my future has secured my path towards an even better existence.
Thanks for following this week and I wish you an amazing 2020.
