Visioning work is one of my favorite things to do! I generally find it very inspiring to spend time and energy on creating a vision for my ideal life. In addition, I know that in doing so, I am sending out a clear message to the universe for support. Whenever I get clarity about my life, I see an immediate uptick in activity in that area. More synchronicities occur and more magic happens. In fact, the correlation is so consistent that if I don’t see a shift, I go back and check my vision in case I have inadvertently put in a contradiction or something that is creating a block.
I have found it is best to do visioning in each area of the Wheel of Wellbeing – for example, a vision for your ideal romantic partner and another vision for the perfect career. The universe can handle as many visions as you want to float out there so go for it! Just keep them clearly focused – if you tried to do one vision board, for example, that incorporated both romance and career, you might manifest the ideal mate who has the job you want or a great job where you are attracted to your boss. Not that these are bad things, but I believe visions get more traction when they are focused.
In fact, a vision is most powerful when it is rich with detail. The more clearly you can paint the picture of your vision, the more likely you are to get what you want. When you are unspecific or unclear, the universe matches you. I am reminded of the movie, Bedazzled, with Brendan Fraser. He is in search of love and is granted wishes by the lovely Elizabeth Hurley, but his lack of specificity gets him in trouble. He wishes to be rich and powerful and then wakes up in the life of a Columbian drug lord who is hunted by all of his competitors. When Elizabeth grants him another try, he wishes for the life of an NBA player which he assumes will grant him fame, fortune, and most importantly, adoring female fans. But he forgot to ask for sexual functionality! Talk about a lesson in specificity.
I had the same experience when I was searching for love. I first wished for funny and loving, which the universe delivered. But I forgot to ask for employed and mentally stable. Needless to say, I kept tinkering with my vision and each time I did, the universe delivered. I finally got it all worked out and must say that my husband, Chris, could not be more perfect for me. He is my true soulmate in every way.
All this is to say that I recommend focusing on one area of your life with each visioning activity, and not mixing them. But you are welcome to approach it in your own way. The worst that will happen is that you will get something different than what you thought you were asking for, and that gives you great information for revising your vision. Back to the drawing board, so to speak.
There are different ways to engage in visioning but I have found the three most powerful to be:
