Vision Boards & Mind Maps January 25, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Happiness, Magick & Mystery.

IMGP3969Tonight, I’m heading over to AMI to create a Vision Board with the authors of Saving the Best for Last.

I’ve been thinking about making one for the “new” year.

Yesterday, while talking to Renee about her/their plans for the week, she invited me to join them for Vision Boards night.


Today, I gathered a stack of magazines to bring so we’d have plenty of ideas and inspiration to cut and paste onto our boards.

But, wait!

There’s more.

I just clicked on the Crowing Crone’s blog and found that Joss just made a Vision Board for the year.  You can see it here:  The Least Artsy!

Synchronicity . . . 1, 2, 3!

When we know WHO we are . . . we know HOW to live!

Postscript:  Sidey’s Weekend Theme . . . Synchronicity, of course!

Oh my…Yesterday’s Joss’ post, today yours, and also watched “The Secret” this afternoon…VISION BOARDS -synchronicity….the universe is talking to me, too!

That’s excellent! I guess we all need to put on our Imagineer’s Caps and DREAM BIG! 😉

isn’t it fun when synchronicity is all around? Let’s have fun with life, I say.

We had a great time putting together our boards ~ 7 boards with 7 different “themes” and approaches.

And lots of laughs. 😀

3. Tammy - January 25, 2012

That looks like a ton of fun!

nrhatch - January 25, 2012

We had FUN cutting and pasting descriptive words & images for our boards . . . sending our intentions out into the Universe!

If we manifest our intentions . . . we are going to have a BLAST this year. 😉

I love it when that happens! Sounds like a good time 🙂

nrhatch - January 25, 2012

So much fun making a collage of my “favorite things” (with one critical omission . . . no CHOCOLATE!)

5. Andra Watkins - January 25, 2012

I’ve got to do one of these.

nrhatch - January 26, 2012

Doing the Vision Board tonight was great ~ a reminder of all the wonderful possibilities waiting “just around the bend.”

6. Just A Smidgen - January 26, 2012

I’ve started one… But have lots of room to add to it as I go along:)

nrhatch - January 26, 2012

I did mine tonight in one fell swoop ~ about 2 hours from start to finish. Every picture I added makes me SMILE! 😀

7. faeriemagic - January 26, 2012

That is too funny … before I read the blog today I was driving to work this mornin and I heard a voice whisper, “remember mind-mapping” … and I remember several years ago I did a Mind Map and it scared the crap out of me because all this stuff happened around it … wow! so looks like I would like to do another connected version of a mind map and vision board … thank you for the link as well to Joss’ 😉

nrhatch - January 26, 2012

When I have taken the time to write out a list of what I WANT . . . I find that I often get exactly what I asked for (even if I’ve forgotten about the written list).

After we moved to Florida, I was going through some old papers and came across a list I’d done several years before . . . that described “this villa.”

Synchronicity and Mystery ~ what a Dynamic Duo!

8. sufilight - January 26, 2012

Reading this post in the late evening, my off time today, :). All these activities you enjoy are so positive and fun. Good energy!

nrhatch - January 26, 2012

Thanks, Marie. I am so glad that Jean, Renee, and Joyce invited me to join them in creating a vision board. It’s been on my “To Do” list for ages and I think it has really given me a shot of ENTHUSIASM this morning!

Woo hoo!

9. bluebee - January 26, 2012

A fun thing to do but even better to do it with a group of friends

nrhatch - January 26, 2012

Seven of us worked on boards last night ~ with a huge stack of magazines to choose from. Once we were done, it was FUN to compare and contrast our images and words and vision with the others around the table.

Definitely a GREAT activity to do with friends, kids, or grandkids.

10. eof737 - January 27, 2012

Brilliant and I was thinking about the same thing recently. I do want to create a vision board for this year… Will go do it. 🙂

nrhatch - January 27, 2012

You and your Inner Child will have a blast, E!

11. Julie - January 27, 2012

Wow! I love the idea of getting a group of women together to share magazines and “vision board” together. I might just steal that idea… 🙂

nrhatch - January 27, 2012

You should definitely steal the idea!

Jean’s grand-daughter did one at age 10 and still has it . . . so it might be a fun project to do with your kids at some point too.

12. SidevieW - January 28, 2012

it happens, it suprises us each time, yet there are connections that draw us into the same paths over and over

nrhatch - January 28, 2012

I love all the lovely and unexpected WINKS, WHISPERS, and NUDGES from the universe.

Synchronicity and mystery rock! 😉

13. colonialist - January 29, 2012

Well, I gather there has been a lot of synchronicity floating around. That is familiar territory. But what is with mind maps and vision boards? Warnings to ships of areas mined, and boards appointed to confer with angels?
Methinks I need to google some basics.

nrhatch - January 29, 2012

The link in the first line (at “Vision Boards”) will give you the basics. I expect that different people create them for different reasons. We can use them:

* to tap into sub-conscious desires
* to signal our intentions to the universe
* as a daily reminder of our dreams and goals
* to cover up that spot on the wall
* Etc.

Mine reminds me of the infinite possibilities to explore, taste, and enjoy.

14. Cmsmith - January 30, 2012

Interesting. I do something similar to this at the start of some writing projects.

nrhatch - January 30, 2012

I’m always reminded of the Cheshire Cat when I hear about Vision Boards and Mind Maps:

One day, Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.

“Which road do I take?” she asked.
“Where do you want to go?”
“I don’t know,” Alice answered.
Then, said the cat, it doesn’t matter.”

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” Lewis Carroll
