Why Vision Boards Are So Powerful
‘All things are created twice. There is a mental or first creation (imagination) and a physical or second creation (reality) to all things.’ Stephen Covey
The law of attraction states that we attract into our lives anything that we give attention to, regardless of whether it is positive or negative. From a psychological point of view, the law of attraction can be best explained by the information filtering system of the brain known as the Reticular Activation System (RAS). Vision boards serve the role of programming the RAS to tune into external stimuli (images and words) that can help us move closer towards our intentions.
Think of the RAS as a radio station that tunes into whatever frequency is programmed. The RAS however cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined so if it is primed to tune into the stimuli on your vision board it, like a heat seeking missile will target those images and tell your brain that this is real rather than imaginary. In other words, when you choose certain images and put them on your vision board and attach a heightened emotion you feel when you think about having that thing, emotions like joy, elation, happiness and passion, and see your self as having already achieved it, your RAS, like a dutiful servant, will bring it into clear focus and filter out anything not relevant. Try this….
Look around the room where you are now and notice everything that is red – maybe a pen, a book, a coffee cup or an ornament….got them all? Now, without looking again, I want you to tell me everything in the room that is green. Had to look again, didn’t you? That’s because when you gave the RAS a task, it literally filtered out anything not relevant.
Now can you see the power of a vision board that has meaning and emotion attached to it? This is what you will be doing in one of my vision board workshops and then we will set about creating goals and a plan to make your dreams an absolute reality.
Post – COVID
What a start to the year 2020 has delivered for us! Everything from bushfires, COVID 19 and the “Lockdown” closing of many businesses; Black Lives Matter protests both in Australia and around the world and now an economic downturn to rival the GFC of 2008. No wonder people are feeling shell shocked, fearful and anxious.
The end of Financial Year is just around the corner and I think it’s time to start putting a bit of hope back into our lives, to start to live in the moment and to focus on building a better future. Agreed?
What better way of doing this with a bit of creativity, fun and creating a BHAG – yes, a Big Hairy Awesome Goal. Something to focus on that inspires you, gets you dreaming and taking the actions to move you beyond all the negativity!
Let’s create a bold, brilliant and beautifully inspiring Vision Board. But not just any vision board – this one will be one you will want to keep coming back to, over and over again because it is made with passion and purpose.
We’ll be focusing on mindfulness and being in flow as we get lost in time and space – revelling in our dreams and creativity that may have lain dormant for quite some time.
Set yourself up for success as you learn new ways to appreciate the moment and connect with your true self, as well as those dreams that you thought were frivolous or that you had forgotten about.
‘When you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live or holiday, your life changes to match those images and desires.’ Christine Kane
Experience the power of visualisation through creating your own vision board for the second half of 2020:
- Get crystal clear about what you want for the rest of this year
- Add feelings to your desires and allow yourself to dream again
- Revisit the dreams and desires you have put on hold
- Take time out to create a vision you love
- Reignite your imagination & tap into your hidden creativity
These Vision Board Workshops will be held in the Wise HeART Studio (Narangba) for those who want the face to face experience.
As we are now all so adept at Zoom meetings, we’ll also run them online as well so you can make either a physical Vision Board or a digital Vision Board. Digital vision boards are ideal to use as a screen saver to be reminded of your dreams and goals when you open your computer.

What Clients Say
I was so impressed. I didn’t even really know too much about mandalas but Maureen skillfully guided us through a series of classes that opened my mind and at the same time focused my mind to be present in the moment!
This course has put my fears of “not being creative enough” to design my own mandala at ease. It had so much more than learning how to create a mandala too. I really enjoyed being totally present and time not even being a factor as I loved the creative process and the peace and calm, I gained. Special bonus though was doing labyrinths and the word mandala.
