THE KEY TO LIFE

When you acknowledge the entirety of who you are, you can finally access all of your potential. If you limit yourself now, you’re also limiting who you could be. By embracing all of your elements -mind, body, and spirit- you gain control over your life. Now that you know who you truly are, what you want out of life becomes clear. Things you thought you needed don’t seem as essential anymore. What really matters is living life to the fullest and in a way that’s meaningful to you.
This practice focuses on the future and helping you envision everything that’s essential to it. Throughout the Reunite with You journey you’ve been asked to think about what you want out of life. Now’s the time for it to come to fruition. Your future is in your hands.
In this practice you’ll be creating a vision board for your future. Vision boards utilize the process of visualization and puts it into a physical context. Just as there are many ways of learning, some people prefer a more visual and hands-on approach to visualization. Either way, your vision board is meant to be personalized to illustrate what you wish to manifest in your life.
Begin by making a list of 5-10 things you want in your future. These can be things you’d like to improve upon or achieve such as having a healthy diet, reconnecting with your sibling, or working at your dream job. Don’t limit yourself as you create your list. You don’t have to worry about the “if’s” and “how’s”. The point isn’t to plan your future but to envision it.
Once you have your list, you can determine the best vision board method for you. One option is to physically look through old newspapers and magazines to find pictures that represent an item on your list. Then you can cut them out and glue them onto sturdy paper or poster board. Another option is to find pictures online and create a document where you can paste and display them. Or you can even use a site like Pinterest to create a digital vision board where you could find inspiration from others. Whatever method you choose, make sure you have access to keeping and viewing it daily.
After your vision board is complete, make a habit to look at it daily. You could take a moment at the beginning or end of your day when you’re able to fully focus on yourself. It might feel like a hassle at the beginning, but the time and energy you invest in yourself is never a waste. No one knows about the upcoming twists and turns in their life. But when you have a goal to focus on you can find purpose in those obstacles and use them to your advantage. Use your vision board to help steer you in the direction that you choose.
