Have you ever read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne? It was all the rage a few years back, and I am still actively trying to live by it. I highly recommend it if you haven't already read it, or if you haven't already tried it after reading it!
Basically, it is all about envisioning what you want, imagining that you already have it so that the universe eventually gives it to you. It encourages having a "vision board" where you write or post pictures of what you want. I started a vision board a year or two ago, and I have already pulled several of the items off of the board because they came to me!
Well, in a spring cleaning frenzy, I donated my vision board and transferred it to a vision journal. I write my desires as if I already have them, i.e. "I have smooth, shiny hair" rather than "I want smooth, shiny hair" because this summer humidity is making quite a frizzball out of me! I also cut and paste images or phrases from magazines that I find empowering, or that bring to live my own hopes for the future.
This is all about positivity, something everyone needs in their life. Besides being a motivator, the vision journal has been a great way to unwind at the end of the day, too. Write in it or read it, it clears the mind!
