I am a big fan of vision boards. I’ve been creating them for years. A vision board is a collage of images and phrases that shows you what you want to accomplish in your life. I first heard about them after watching the movie “The Secret.” There was a scene where a person realized that he was living in the house that he put on his vision board a few years ago.
I have been doing vision boards for several years now. On a board that I made in 2012, ten things have come to pass. On my 2015 board, six things have happened. I honestly believe that seeing things that you want to happen stays in your subconscious mind. Then, they manifest themselves when you work. In January, I had my first vision board party. I had 16 attendees show up. Everyone had a great time. There may be someone out there that wants to have a vision board party later this year or early next year, but they may not know where to begin. In today’s post, I will be going over how to have a vision board party.
Find a location
The first thing that needs to be done if you’re having a vision board party is to find a place. This will depend on the number of people that you want to show up. If you plan to have a small gathering, you may be able to have it at your house or apartment. If you intend to do something bigger, it’s best to hold it in a venue. Some places that you can consider having it are community centers or restaurants. I had mine at a community center.
You have to let people know that you are having an event. That can be done by word of mouth, e-mail, social media, or even through a newsletter if you have a blog or business. I used each of these ways when I promoted mine.
Decide if you want to have people bring their own supplies or if you want to bring them. The supplies that you will need are as follows:
I provided most of the supplies for my vision board party. I did ask a few of my homegirls to bring some of their magazines because I didn’t have particular types of them.
Food & Drinks
The next thing that you need to do is to decide if you will have any food or drinks. At my party, I had both. One of my friends brought pizza. We also have chips. For drinks, we had wine, whiskey, vodka, water, soda, and juice. People thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Work on your Board
The next thing that you need to do is work on your board. Take about two hours to go through the magazines to find different pictures. Then arrange the pictures on the board before you glue them. Once you have them looking the way you want to, then it’s time to glue them.
Present your Board
The final thing to do is to show your board. It doesn’t need to be mandatory. Some people really don’t like speaking, or they get nervous. Allow the people that want to go over theirs to do so.
It’s pretty easy to have a vision board party. If you’ve been considering one, do it. A vision board could help you take your life to another level.
