An extremely valuable tool that I use to help my clients and myself in visualizing a dream is by creating a Focus Board. Some people are very visual in how they approach their life, which makes a Focus Board a logical next step to their process of moving their life forward.
It is an organic process of looking through books, magazines, and pictures to determine what speaks to your heart. They would then choose those phrases, poems, pictures, etc., that represent the life that they would like to live. It assists an individual in identifying those values and qualities that they would like to have more of in their life. Once it is completed, it can serve as a daily reminder of the path that they want to take.
Focus Boards also provide inspiration to keep them moving toward their desired goal. A Focus Board can be utilized for a specific goal, i.e., to become more fit. It can also serve as a more general guide and represent the balance and feel that a person would like to have in their day to day life.
Below is an example of a Focus Board that I created for myself when I decided to become an Iyengar Yoga Instructor, which was a long process. When I look back on it, I had a very clear vision of what I wanted it to look like. This Focus Board still hangs in my home today!
