How wonderful! A vision board has helped me visualize what I want to manifest into my life, and surprised me by "delivering" some of the items rather quickly! This book looks very intriguing, and congratulations on having some of your art included!

Is this the vision board concept shown on the Oprah show? If so, the book might help me actually DO it rather than just THINK about doing it! LOL! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

Wow, this looks to be an awesome book. I only recently heard of a vision board and am wanting to experiment with one. Congratulations also on being included in the book, that is a wonderful complement.

I have never heard of a vision board. I'm off to look that up and read more about this book. Hope I'm lucky ;) My word verification is mutte... hmm hope that isn't a precurser! Does anyone else try to make sense/words out of these things?!

I have heard of vision boards and want to learn more! I write and publish and prompt each week for a Soul Journal project and I think this book will be a helpful tool for future prompts! I think it is wonderful that you are putting this out there for others and spreading the "secret" to finding happiness. For the last few years a good friend and I get together to create a collage on New Years Eve - the topic is what are our hopes for the upcoming year.

Chaska,

Went to look at the book (thanks for the link) and I'm going to buy it, so don't put me in the contest. Visualization seems a very powerful tool, and just the sort of workshop that I want to have at The Fernery. Are you at all interested in teaching at a small venue in NE FL? If so, please email me at barb@thefernery.com. You can see more about what we are building at www.thefernery.com.
thanks, very much hoping to hear from you!

I ran across the notion of vision boards in "The Secret" and I must say, after this past year, I NEED to manifest some good things in my life.

Thank you for doing this Chaska...Sandi

Thank you Chaska!
I reviewed your book page,and will share it with others. I have done vision boards throughout my life, but called them "affirmation" boards and believe strongly in this concept of visualization & manifestation. It is wonderful to see it in print for all to use.
I am visualizing receiving the book. ^^I^^'s, Patti

A vision board is a good thing. We went to workshop that was about a vision book. We are supposed to just put photos in there of the things that we would like out of life.
It is a great concept. Perhaps winning and owning a book would keep me on track.

Blogger Elizabeth Golden said...

This looks like a really cool book. I have heard from several friends about this book. One wanted me to help her make a vision board because I am an "artists". Go figure. How does one help someone else see their vision? Most people have a hard enough time finding and living their own visions. Great concept and I would love to read more on the subject. I can't wait to see your artwork in it.

I am begining to create again after a terribbly long dark dry spell. I don't know excactly what a vision board is ,but anything to help me organize and keep the flow of creative engery moving would be helpfull. Sounds like maybe that is what this would be good for. I get so mant ideas sometimres when I am like this, but don't always know what to do first.
then sometimes end up doing nothing

We have been using the tools of gratefulness for over a year now and it has been so wonderful! I recently bought us boards to use as vision boards as I think this will move us to a higher level but I'm not sure how to start this and then the universe led me here today!! How wonderful! Thank you for having this give away!

So a vision board is like an ispiration board then? Fascinating! I have a big wall in front of my desk that would be the perfect spot for such a thing, and I always like to find some new form of inspiration with the New Year.

This book sounds like it could be used as a great tool to get things accomplished. I've been feeling in a rut for a while now so this would be a great motivator.

Visualizing is so important. One study showed that visualization showed as much improvement as actual physical practice in sports.

Well, I tried a bunch of times to leave a comment the first day you posted about this and for some reason Blogger didn't "recognize" me - trying again. In the meantime I borrowed the book from the library, and it's a good one! (Still would love to have my own copy, tho'!)

wow Your website is wonderful, and yes there are many "must haves" here that will have to wait untill after the end of the year. Your Alchemy shop has some very nice assemblages. I feel inspired by the site, and if the book is half the inspiration, it will be worth every penny! Thanks for sharing you work with us. Sherelyn
