Creative Visualisation Tools
There are two main tools available to you to help in your Visualisation exercises. To make some Creative Visualisation tools follow the below instructions for either the Visualisation Flash Cards or the Vision Board. Their purpose is to help focus you mind consistently on what you desire.
1 – Visualisation Flash Cards
Visualisation Flash Cards are use as prompts when doing your exercises. They help you identify and refine your visualisation and help you focus consistently on the same visualisation image. This helps with the effectiveness of your visualisation in essence because you are banking consistent images and emotions for your Subconscious Mind and the Law of Attraction to act upon. Visualistion Flash Cards assist with consistent high quality visualisations.
What To Do
- Download and fill out the Visualisation Flash Card document available on the Downloads page – use the pre-completed one as a guide and overtype it with your own visualisation text. It is important that it is your words, feelings and thoughts that appear on the card. If you identify with someone else’s goals and desires, great, but you must develop a strong affinity with what ever you are focusing on rather than just ‘going through the motions’ because you think its ‘what you should want.’
- Print out your visualisation cards on light card and cut along the lines so as to end up with 10 business card sized flash cards – most printers will accept a maximum of 160 gsm card stock but check with the manufacturer for the exact ‘weight’ your printer will accept. You may like to print out ‘several batches’ of different visualisation mantra’s, each with on a different coloured card.
- Shuffle your visualisation flash cards so that you do not know which visualisation you will receive next – this step is actually optional but makes for more excitement if you don’t know which of your visualisations you will be focusing on next.
- Meditate or Visualise (Day Dream) on the particular visualisation you turn up for at lest 3 or 4 minutes each session or longer if you have time. Repetition is the key to effective visualisation. The Subconscious Mind works with pictures and emotions. The more often you focus on the thing of your desire the more time and effort the Subconscious Mind will put into its creation.
- Refer to your flash cards at least 3 times daily – morning, noon (lunch time) and evening, and even better, another session just before bed time so that you can clear yourself of the days activity and input your visualisations into you subconscious for it to work on whilst you dream – this is very powerful and highly recommended.
2 – Vision Board
Vision Boards are an excellent tool for helping to ‘get a grip’ on you wants and desires. They help focus your attention on what it is you want and assoicate your desires through the Law of Attraction to become a part of your life.
What exactly is a Vision Board, how should I make one and how does it work?
First things first. When doing Law of Attraction Lessons, you should be having fun. It should be enjoyable and your energy should flow freely. If you are having trouble ‘getting it’ or you are finding difficult to concentrate, then stop. Don’t practice this lesson. Go and have a cup of tea, go for a walk or do something enjoyable where you can detach from your worldly problems and concerns. It is important to be in a positive frame of mind for these lessons. If you are not sure why, please see the article on Emotions.
What Do You Want?
To create you vision board it is important start with images you identify with or that hold meaning for you. A vision board is a collage of the things you want to see in your life. It is the picture of things that are to come. The images may be of opulence and luxury or they may be of people and places you would like to go and see. The main thing is that, whilst they may see ‘far out’ to you now, that in the back of you mind you need to believe that you will some day attain these things.
This is the Fun Part. Start collecting images. There are so many ways that you can collect images for you vision board. You can collect images from magazines and newspapers. You can collect them from the Internet. You can draw them yourself (particularly powerful if your a reasonable artist), or you can buy posters and stick images over that so as it forms the basis of you collage. What ever you would like to see in you life is what you collect images of. Be it a house, a holiday, a pet, a new computer, anything. It may be of people skiing, hot air ballooning, horse riding or laying on a beach in the sun. Whatever takes you fancy and that you desire to attain.
Where to Put it?
Place your images up on board. It can be a poster board, a cork board, or stuck onto the wall with bluetac. It is up to you. But it must be visible whenever you look at it. Make sure you put the vision board some place where you will see it often. It looses some of it effectiveness if you have to remind yourself to go and look at it. You need to be able to view it spontaneously. Whilst a vision board in your bedroom might be inconvenient to access during the day, waking up and going to sleep looking at your vision board is incredibly effective. Viewing your vision board first thing in the morning and last thing at night allows for unadulterated visualisation free from the days ‘issues’ so that your subconscious mind can really get to work on it. This is highly recommended if you can manage it.
Another place is to put a you vision board is on the back of the door in the toilet. Whist you may be thinking ‘Oh that’s gross’, the toilet is actually an excellent place to practice creative visualisation. It is quite, there are usually very few distractions, you usually visit it several times a day and your vision board is also very close at hand on the back of the door so it is much easier to use lots of little pictures to really build up a good collage.
Do You Need More Than One?
It is helpful to have one ‘topic’ to concentrate on when visualising. For this reason you may actually like to make several vision boards. You could have one focused on you new dream home, or a vision board focused on you dream car. You could have one for a holiday you would like to take within 12 months and so on.
