The Vision Board

I think I am prime proof that living life with INTENTION

Vain me definitely had a yen to have some of my artwork published....and, I did not count the zines in which my work appeared, nor the the IndieArts DVD produced by Karen Landey. I wanted something with more punch! Something bigger.

Yes, I wanted this, but I did not want to do the work of submitting my work. Are you thinking "well, duh!"? So was I. The secret to extraordinary events is holding an extraordinary intention. And, so here is proof. Joyce Schwarz, the author, discovered me on a friend's blog, and I responded to the comment she left. Here you see the result, a full page!

No, I had not actually had this secret desire of mine on a vision board, but I believe if I had done that, this would have happened a few years ago when I first had my vision. I believe Vision Boards are very powerful maps of what we desire, because they clarify what those desires are.

It's a very interesting book! It is extremely well done, and I recommend it to anyone who finds the subject of interest. There are many, many types of Vision Boards, and though you can do a board without the help of a book, this will enable you to learn how to do it in depth.

You know you were the very LAST picture to get in the book. We had to delete chapter 8 because of space and you were originally in there.

Thanks so much. PS my name is Joyce Schwarz (no "t" Read more about the book at and browse inside at

How simply cool is that! Right on!

Years ago I had a little notebook and I had cut out computer hardware and software that I wanted and put it together creatively on a page in this notebook, within a couple of months I had it all! I guess that is sort of like a vision board only it was a vision journal. I wonder why I didn't keep putting things in this journal? Perhaps I'll start a more intentional magical journal. Hmmm thanks for the inspiration.
