Most of you have likely heard of a vision board. A place where you gather pictures of what you’d like to bring into your life. The idea is that when you focus on the images, you tune into the emotion you feel from living with the presence of those items (possessions, or states of being like happiness, health, fulfillment) in your life, you will be drawn to the circumstances in which to manifest those feelings. While attending a mastermind class I composed a vision story based on the direction of our leader. I enjoy writing, so I took great pleasure describing my ideal life. I filled it full with emotion and details that made my heart sing. Our class leader insisted that you write the document as if it already took place and fill it with gratitude for all of your happiness.
I felt the best way for me to express my life vision was in the form of a very detailed gratitude journal entry. I use a gratitude journal as often as possible. In my every day life I start off by writing, “Awesome things about today…”. I typically list from three to five events that filled my heart with happiness. In my vision story, I went into way more detail in order to outline every aspect of my life that I envisioned changing. I wrote it two years ago. It’s very interesting to see how much of it, regarding my family life and self-discovery journal already occurred or is in the process of developing. I specified winning the lottery because I’ve always felt I would. Though the experts in the manifesting world advise not limiting yourself to a specific avenue for abundance to manifest. I am now open to any path the universe creates to create abundance and realize the lottery can be a metaphor for achieving abundance. For example, my husband had an amazing career opportunity in the last year, for which we are grateful.
Though I still am drawn to lotteries and games of chance and find the thought of winning thrilling, and exciting. I still believe I’ve already won. With the biggest mega millions jackpot, half a billion dollars, up for grabs this Friday, it inspires me to allow myself to open up to accepting the prize. Although, I am honestly thrilled for whoever does cash the check for this thrilling jackpot. I’ve come to believe we are all connected in some way. So when one person wins, we all win. I also know I am not limited to this prize or any other game to create my ideal life. There are infinite ways for abundance to flow. I know my higher self creates the situations that will serve it best. Everyone’s higher self has different purposes and creates the experiences it needs to evolve and grow. I am excited for this particular jackpot to be won though. I know the universe will deliver it to the perfect person at the perfect time. So congratulations to that person in advance whether it’s me or some one else! You deserve it! I hope you find the abundance thrilling and utilize it as best as you see fit. Enjoy the ride and listen to your heart. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it can bring security, freedom to have fun and a tool to help others. Enjoy!
I am sharing my vision story below as an example to those who might need some inspiration. There’s also a download link available in Windows Word format for those who’d like to start crafting their own version using my story as a template. Turtles speak to my soul. So I inserted images of them on my paper, and took great care with other details like heart hole punches and using special ribbon to bind it. Modify it to whatever things speak to your soul. It is a reflection of you, and only you know what resonates. Keep an open mind to anything you’d like to feel and occur in your life. Know in your heart, ANYTHING is possible, no matter how different it is from your current situation.
My Vision Story
An Excerpt From My Gratitude Journal
I am so grateful for the well-being, happiness and love that surround me, my family and loved ones. My husband, my children, and I are allowing all the well-being and love we need to be happy and keep our bodies healthy. This is something we each cherish as we know every day is most pleasurable with our bodies functioning at full capacity. Through the love we all nurture, we encourage each other to have fun, and treat everyone with the respect, and kindness each person deserves both in our family and the world. I am also grateful for all the well-being that is available for our loved ones and visualize each of them in a loving, happy place.
I am so grateful for my spiritual awakening and journey of self-discovery. I honor and cherish each day that I am able to discover and develop every one of my talents. I love opening my third-eye, feeling the clarity that it brings and learning to recognize all that it has to show me through life around me. This journey has made me feel so confident, and powerful. It has helped me foster a loving, organized and harmonious life at home. I am so excited to have found ways to embrace all of my power and enjoy sharing it with those around me. I love my fulfillment that comes from this journey.
I am so grateful for the exciting experience of winning the jackpot. I always knew I would win the lottery since before I could legally play. I have always loved the thrill of playing games like the lottery, and slot machines, feeling the fun flow through me followed by money. I am so grateful my jackpot happened when I was ready and willing to accept the perfect amount of financial abundance. The air had been charged with excitement since I believed it could happen. I’ll never forget the thrill of it all happening from the moment of looking down at my ticket and seeing every single number match the ones on my computer screen, to the flurry of phone calls and dances of joy that ensued, followed by the satisfaction of attracting honest, intelligent and caring people that helped us create a happy recipe for our financial freedom that had the perfect ingredients of savings, investments, pleasures, real estate, and worthy causes, and then to watching dollars flowing effortlessly into our bank account and easily being exchanged for comfort and pleasure. This experience has been blissful and easy. I am eternally grateful for the fun, security and knowledge that we live as comfortably as we choose and enjoy sharing it with our loved ones.
I feel so blessed to have these wonderful feelings of security, freedom and comfort that flowed from my financial abundance into my lifestyle. It is a pleasure driving my children in our new hybrid vehicle to their school that fosters self-discovery and the joy of learning. I am so grateful my husband may now devote his time to everything he enjoys like his pleasure of renewable and sustainable living projects.
I am so grateful for this wonderful house I call home. I love waking up in the morning, grabbing my cup of coffee from our morning bar and stepping out the sliding doors from our bedroom onto the patio and gaining refreshment for my mind and body in our pool and hot tub while taking in the amazing view of our majestic, private backyard. I love how our property is full of life and things I cherish like abundant trees, flower and vegetable gardens, special places for my children and dog, to romp, and areas I love to enjoy with the company of family and friends while cooking in our outdoor kitchen, and eating and relaxing by the fire pit. I am so grateful for the sounds of birds in our trees announcing the joy of another day as I enjoy life.
I love that our home has places to do and organize all the things that I love as well as for my family. I am so grateful to have beautiful bedrooms for everyone in our family and our visitors so everyone has their own personal retreat when they are in our home. I love having a game room where we can fulfill our light-hearted spirits with pool, pinball, and cards and serve our homebrew. Our creative room also welcomes anyone wanting a place dedicated to play, study, and create. I am so grateful to be able to nourish family and friends in my amazing kitchen that has plenty of storage, counter space, double dishwashers and a wonderful location central in our home that allows space for everyone to gather and converse in it or around it in the family room. I also love entertaining our family and friends in the spacious dining room, living room, and outdoor spaces. I feel so blessed for our inspiring, home office retreat where both my husband and I can focus on each of our endeavors with ease. I am so grateful for the weekly assistance I have that help keep both our indoor and outdoor spaces well maintained so everyone may enjoy the beauty and harmony of our home.
I am so grateful for my trips. I love our family getaways to our beachside vacation home in South Lake Tahoe where memories from building sandcastles to snowmen are made. I cherish our annual alone time trip with my husband where we are able to create loving, new experiences together and fully enjoy each other’s company without distraction. I adore my solo vacations where I travel to new places and learn how to cook local cuisine. It is a treasure to bring back that knowledge to share with friends and family. I adore travelling to spiritually energized locations where I can feel the treasure of universal love. I love the excitement of our family trips abroad which are full of amazement as we immerse ourselves in different cultures. The world is such an amazing place.
My life is truly blessed.
For every blessing, I am eternally grateful.
Joy and love to all.
Thank you so much.
