What's On Your Wall?
In my entire history as a conscious creator I have never once felt inspired to create a vision board.
Blasphemy, I know.
Even muggle girlfriends get together on weekends for vision board parties, but I can’t be bothered.
I took a course once, from a local money coach, where we had to spend an hour cutting out pictures from magazines to go on our new vision boards, and it was my least favorite part of the course.
I’m just more of a words girl. I love affirmations; I’ll script all day; journaling is my thing.
So you can imagine my surprise when I realized I actually have “vision boards” all over my house.
Not only do I have vision boards everywhere, but they’ve already manifested into real life.
Here’s how that happened …
Shortly after I got my first real job, I discovered an art store downtown that sold beautiful, amazing framed prints.
I’d never purchased art before, but I did that day.
It’s a scene with three deer on a snowy landscape looking directly at the viewer, and has been hanging on my wall in two different houses until I moved into my third house.
This framed print has a spot in the new house, but it also “happens” to be the exact view I have from several windows here. Just this week I looked out to see two deer on that exact snowy landscape looking right at me.
And it’s not the first thing on my wall to come to real life.
I’ve got a framed photograph of a red fox in the grass that’s been displayed ever since my first house, and at this new place it turns out there’s a red fox that lives in the grass meadow out back.
My office has a large reproduction of a beautiful painting from a Hudson River artist, which is exactly what our favorite hike at our new place looks like in the spring.
Last year I picked up a painting of gold money trees for the office as well, and had my best financial year ever that year.
One of my favorite pieces I’ve had since before I quit my job is a common print of a mountain goat making a big leap over a deep chasm. It’s designed to remind me that as a rising Capricorn I am also sure-footed in making big leaps into self-employment. That’s worked out real well, too. 🙂
Years ago my dad gave me a framed piece he had commissioned of two race horses – and from my new kitchen I watch the neighbor’s barrel racing horses in their pasture all day long.
I could do this all day in describing the pictures that began on my walls and then morphed into real life.
Which makes me realize I had vision boards all along.
The things we look at regularly come to life.
Which makes me wonder, what’s on your wall?
