Late in the evening for the past few weeks a pair of OWL’s would howl in our trees. They have been our medicine since we moved to our canyon home last year, they would come for several weeks, leave and return.
We had just spent the day with the OWLS at the Ojai Raptor center, with friends whose spirit is with the owls too. There is much to be said about the kind of medicine the owl brings. Owls are Visionary; to my knowledge are clairvoyant listeners. Owls knowingly sense their surroundings; they hear the teachers and counselors of the realms nearby… I feel this intuitively as a note on what Visions we may bring in this year.
In my 20’s I used to put together a vision board every New Year, it become less as the years went on, I would journal ideas throughout the year, but lost the connection of doing this at the _beginning of the year_in the middle winter when all is quiet and the new year just unfolding.
Truthfully, Vision boards work, They really do. Looking back, I remember feeling good that my goals and affirmations were completed, and intuitively when something is in front of you, a day to day reminder, we have more thought in taking care of what is in front of us, than not.... more or less manifesting our dreams come true.
So I find myself after a very emotional year of the Monkey, that 2017 is the year to start again..., After all we are now back to a year ONE year, of a new nine year cycle, and soon celebrating the Year of The Rooster... I'd say, a perfect time to envision a more connective, loving, thoughtful year.
To note on ONE YEARS, Great change was upon us and with that a new cycle begins, a stronger YOU.... New ideas shaping up, there is so much more, be stedfast, and remember, If you did not make the changes necessary, they will be made for you".
Why a vision board? Well, with our constant feelings of distractions it is good to get CLEAR. We need more of that, Don’t we? Vision. Clarity. Let’s become clear with our approach.
Secondly, it’s actually quite fun to pull pages, pin stuff up and envision what we want to call in. Set some time for yourself, an hour with this maybe chant a mantra, whispering your thoughts, or even be silent with intention. What do you want to call in? Write it down, post it up.
A Vision board will give you something to identify with, it will be there for you to look at as a reminder of what you are looking to manifest. With words of inspiration like... Keep going, Do the work, Make Babies, Make Love, Travel More, Be Thoughtful.... Just as simple as that.
What do you Vision?
