This is yesterday’s walk when it was sunny, breezy and warm. Last night was cold, windy, wet and gray. The ups and downs of our current collective situation were reflected quite markedly in the weather here in Montana. As a visual storyteller, I am determined to keep myself on the side of the fence which is joyfully blooming. I am discovering new ways of creating portraits of the future, understanding that the future can begin at any moment now.
Yesterday I created another one of my Vision Pages. I take an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock and attach both pictures and lists of specific items I want to accomplish. Sometimes the lists are simple and other times, very detailed. The advantage of these pages is mobility. You can prop it up on your desk, put it in a notebook, tack it up anywhere or carry it around with you. It’s a written order for you and your higher self to collaborate on, rather than just a wish list.
Here’s the page I made. It’s just two photos, one inspirational quote and my list of specifics on the left. I’m keeping the details of my commitment alchemical for now, but you get the idea. Another version is to put your card stock page of images and key words into a plastic sleeve and insert your detailed list into the back of the sleeve. The list can not only include specifics but brainstormed ideas, suggestions to the universe, etc. and let the angels go to work. Either way, lists can be adjusted and updated along with the shifting priorities of our lives and times.
Knowing most of you as I do, I am sure you are doing your best to remain on the blooming and sunny side of the fence. I don’t mean to diminish the overwhelming and difficult elements of our current situations. As creators, however, we have a responsibility to go forward shining our lights in whatever ways we can.
PS Apologies if this vision page photo is not as clear as I would like it to be. After three tries, I’ve decided to just send the message out!
