Seven years ago, I made a vision board. I cut out scenes from magazines that I liked, and glued them to a piece of poster board to look at everyday. At that point in my life, I had really wanted to move to a new home. We were living in the house that Jack owned when I met him, and for a number of reasons, it didn’t work well for us. At the same time, a teacher of mine said, “Make a list of the top ten things that you want, read the list three times a day, and try to get as much feeling as you can, that what you want is already yours.” What I really wanted was a new home so that is mostly what I focused on.
This was some of the most difficult mental work that I had ever done. My mind kept going to the questions, “How is this going to happen? How can you afford to move? How can you move before you sell this house?” I had to keep dragging it back from the dreaded “Hows”. It felt at times like I was surrounded by an army whose sole purpose was to convince me that what I wanted was unreasonable…sometimes it seemed I was all alone, just this silly woman with a vision board and a notepad trying to imagine a wonderful home into my life.
After a couple of months, I drove by a sweet-looking place. We had no down payment, a fair amount (i.e. mountanin of) debt, and no savings. I called a realtor anyway, and made an appointment to see the house. The staircase was the exact one that I had on my vision board (and the house that I was looking at was over 100 years old).We are now living in that house. Our mortgage broker found a way to work the down-payment into the mortgage.
If your dreams don’t seem realistic then good. It means that they are not based on what you know (what your conscious mind can figure out, which is a pretty small thing compared to this vast Universe). It means that you are creating something better. And creating a better world is what we are here to do.
“Nothing stands between you and the fulfillment of your dreams but facts, and facts are the creations of imagining. If you change your imagining, you will change the facts.” Neville Goddard (From, The Law and the Promise).
