This is my special name for something so simple that has been around for ages but helped my healing process no end and went on to help change my perspective on life as I thought I knew it.

It started when I was at an all time low, struggling to get back into my groove after a nasty break up. I'm normally a fairly positive person so this situation had really knocked me around. Any of you who have been there realize how important it is to focus on the positive when you are in this space but also understand how easy it is to dwell in 'negative city'.

Well, I was there, fully ensconced in 'negative city'. Gosh it felt like I'd bought an apartment and moved all my stuff in. Maybe it was just a long-term lease but whatever it was I knew I had to get out there and really quick.

So, what are Vision Boards?

If any of you have read "The Secret" you will be familiar with positive affirmations, positive thoughts and vision boards. Since I'm a project type of person the vision board theory seemed like a fun thing to me and if it helped get me out of my slump then I was up for that. For those of you unfamiliar with vision boards let me explain...

A vision board is a board you create with pictures or items relating to places you want to go, things you want to do and what you want for your life. You might prefer to think of it as your goal or aspiration board. Your board can be created on a strong piece of cardboard or a pin board. Creating the board is fun and easy. I waded through magazines and books to find pictures that resonated with me and represented what I wanted to achieve. As time went on I added more to my board and best of all I started ticking things off. That was the biggest buzz.

Vision boards gives you focus. They take your mind away from your negative situation and helps you look towards better things. When you dwell with your negative thoughts you keep attracting more negative energy into your life and that is why tuning into positive thoughts is so important. It doesn't mean you don't hurt and you block everything out it's just a way of turning a bad situation into a better one.

Here are four points to consider about vision boards:

Visual. Your subconscious mind works in pictures and images, so make your vision board as visual as possible with as many pictures as you can. You can supplement your pictures with words and phrases to increase the emotional response you get from it.

Emotional. Each picture on your vision board should evoke a positive emotional response from you. The mere sight of your vision board should make you happy and fuel your passion to achieve it every time you look at it.

Strategically-placed. Vision boards should be strategically placed in a location that give maximum exposure. You need to constantly bath your subconscious mind with it’s energy in order to manifest your desires quicker than you hope.

Personal. Negative feelings, self-doubt, and criticism can damage the delicate energy that your vision board emits. If you fear criticism or justification of your vision board from others, then place it in a private location so it can only be seen by yourself. I chose to keep mine in my bedroom but I shared it with people I knew were on the same journey as I was.

Your vision board is yours and yours alone. It's about you, about your dreams and aspirations and should not be influenced by anyone else. As it's your board you are free to add to it, to change it and to create a new one. It's all about you. Remember too, it's use is not limited to the times we are low and need to re balance ourselves. It's a fabulous tool to keep focus on your dreams and aspirations even when life is going well.

I am blown away by how many good things have manifested since I created my vision board. When I look back to the sad, broken person I was I am so pleased I made the effort and gave it a try. I'm onto my second one now to create lots more wonderful experiences, memories and achievements.

So, have some fun and see what you can create in your life. However, if you are struggling through a break up like I was I can also recommend The Breakup Cleanse.

Trying to come to terms with life after you have lost someone your were truly invested in is hard at the best of times so Dr. Brit Brogaard and Catherine Behan M.S. have created The Breakup Cleanse to help get you through your hurt and out the other side.
