The birds are chirping and buds are starting to appear; Spring is definitely trying to make an entrance. Last blog, I talked about energetic “spring cleaning” by clearing out negative and stale energy using the chakras. This week, I would like to go further in offering tools to help plant the seeds of your intentions/goals so that your dreams can also bloom.
A few months ago, I wrote about proper goal setting and how to create a plan to help you succeed. I always advise my clients to start with brainstorming all the things they may want to shift in their lives. I have them think about the different categories of their life: family/friends, career/income, travel, health, etc. Goal setting is a great practice to have when really focusing on a couple these major changes you want to achieve.
Another way to brainstorm in a more creative way is to make a vision board. A vision board is a collage of images of the things you want to manifest in your life. The images can be found, created, written out, etc. This week, I spent time re-creating my own vision board. I took a trip to the craft store and bought some glittery, fun supplies to help. Then, I went through some of the magazines I was planning to throw out and cut out images/words that jumped out at me. I felt there were still some images missing, so I went to the pile of cards I was also planning to discard. Not only did I have a nice trip down memory lane, but I also found the perfect visuals to represent what was missing. What I love about this is that I am also incorporating the positive energy from a thank you or a birthday card from loved ones (which also made me feel less guilty about throwing them out). Now comes the fun part! You get to arrange the images however you want. I even added some chakra inspired colored gems to mine. Once you are done creating the vision board, make sure you hang it somewhere in your room that you will see it every day. Your intentions have now been given to the Universe.
The other change I made to my home this week was to add the color red to my door. In Feng Shui, red doors are thought of to be very powerful. They protect the residents and also provide prosperity and abundance. Because I live in an apartment building, I am not allowed to paint my door red, but I can hang something on the door. I spent the week looking for a red ornament or wreath I could hang, but I couldn’t find anything I felt drawn to. So I decided to make my own. Though I consider myself to be creative in many ways, crafty is not high on the list. However, I did find a wonderful “no-stitch” tutorial to making a wreath on pinterest. I had such a fun time picking out what fabrics I wanted to use and then putting the wreath together! Not to mention, I felt very proud and accomplished once I finished it.
What I love most about these two tools is that you get to be creative as you take steps towards manifesting the life you deserve. As adults (or teenagers), we don’t always give ourselves the time and space to be creative and make something with our hands. Both of these activities don’t take a lot of time out of our lives; in fact they are actually therapeutic and energizing. Plus, you get to see the beautiful creation you made every day, which will continue to allow positive energy to flow through your home.
