HOW to create an eco-friendly vision board to celebrate EARTH DAY!
Blogger note, during the past few months, one of the most requested posts on this author's Amazon.com blog has been "how to create an eco-friendly vision board. So I've repeated and updated this step-by-step post in celebration of Earth Day 2009. ENJOY!
Good news, Joyce Schwarz, author,being contacted by various recycling organizations and foundation to set up workshops across the nation to show why creating Vision Boards is eco-friendly.
Pictures for your eco-board.
One of the fun ways to get the right pictures for your eco board is to make a list of those pix you'd like to see on the board such as: a) a home garden you are planting b) a method of composting you are starting in your group/family c) Past pictures of your family in the outdoors -- climbing or hiking or enjoying the earth at places you've visited --yes, even if they are near and part of your home town area. They don't have to be at an exotic location
TRAVEL -- another option is to gather some travel brochures at your local travel agency or from the travel section of your newspaper or favorite website and put those on the board planning on where you'd like to visit that IS eco-friendly.
VOLUNTEER WORK - do a bit of research and see what local groups need volunteers to help with eco-friendly work in your location. Make a call while you're creating your board -- don't wait until after the weekend or until tomorrow morning. Most groups have answering machines or voicemail or you can email them expressing interest. DO IT NOW1 Add a picture of the group's logo or pix of those past volunteers helping out humanity and the earth to your board.
DECORATE THE BOARD with natural embellishments, consider adding dried flowers or leaves, add a twig or sprinkle it with sand from your last beach visit (spread a layer of glue in a circle first and the sand will stick of course!
MAKE AN ECO-PLEDGE -- draft up an eco pledge that you type up or handwrite on a brown bag and put it on the back of your Vision Board to remind you of what your family is pledging to do that is eco-friendly for 2009 & beyond.
Set at least one day a month aside to catch up with eco-tasks like recycling, composting etc. Maybe you choose the 3rd Saturday of the month or it's the afternoon after church on the second Sunday. By setting a specific date you'll keep your eco-pledge and be living your eco-friendly live you envision on your EARTH DAY VISION BOARD!
Here is an example of how really visioning what you want out of life can help with your lifestyle decisions. ENJOY. Any questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or add your own comments to this blog post!

Inspirational book that combines "The Secret" with a personal art project.,
|By||Bond... James Bond "007.5" (Denver, CO) -|
What you ultimately think of this book may heavily depend on whether you think the book The Secret and the concept of the "Law of Attraction" is a highly credible law of nature, a harmless self-help approach, or a bunch of New Age smoke-and-mirrors sleight-of-hand mind-bending distortions of reality.
The "Law of Attraction" states that if you intentionally and consciously work to attract more of the things you want out of life and less of the things that you do not want, you can co-create your own reality.
By envisioning your own personal vision of your life and creating a vision board as a visual aid, you help to add to the "good vibes" in your life and expel the "bad vibes" that you have been thinking and attracting. And then, over time, both good vibrations and bad vibrations become self-fulfilling prophecies.
Others have talked about this concept over the past centuries. Sometimes, it is referred to as fate, serendipity, karma. In Deepak Chopra's book, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence, he writes about synchronicities in life, how to have them work in your favor, and how vibration energy in one's body ties into quantum physics.
And prior to Deepak, there was Zig Ziglar's book See You at the Top: 25th Anniversary Edition, where he espouses weeding out one's own "Stinkin Thinkin" so that one can co-create one's own successes in life.
And before Zig was the whole Positive Mental Attitude craze and its endlessly marketed variations of that one concept.
Perhaps one of the earliest versions of this "ask and you shall receive" concept (of which the Law of Attraction is one of hundreds of corollaries) is a comment the French microbiologist Louis Pasteur, pioneer of the germ theory of disease, once made: "In the fields of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind." (Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.) I purposely adapted, with a generous dollop of artistic license, Louis' quote in its interpretation of "chance favors the prepared mind", just as many people have also interpreted the "ask and you shall receive" concept in countless ways.
Except for Pasteur's quote, which was made in a purely scientific context, I see all of these as one long and varied continuum of interpretations that basically says that one must live life with goals, with vision, with defined values, with hope, with action, and intent. Otherwise, so many of us sleepwalk through large chunks of our lives.
This books helps to inspire, motivate, and instruct the reader in creating their own personal vision board.
As someone who has dozens of books that help me and inspire me to become better at oil/acrylic painting, stained/fused glass, and photography, when I first flipped through this book before proceeding to read it, it reminded me far more of an art instruction book.
In fact, the quality of the book's construction and richly colored photography of both amateur (made by non-artistic types) and professional (made by an artist) vision boards makes it as beautiful as some of my art instruction books.
Because not everyone can be artistically inclined to create their own vision board by drawing, painting, or rendering their vision using graphics software, the book guides the reader in cutting out words and pictures from magazines to create a vision board that is basically an assemblage of collage, decoupage, and scrapbooking techniques.
Most of the book focuses on what to include in your vision collage.
My one main complaint with the book is that some of the concepts are overhyped. To me, the book's subtitle of "The Secret To An Extraordinary Life", and the front-cover testimonial by Jack Canfield (also an author on the Law of Attraction) that "This book will change your life." present the material as something far more earthshakingly unique than I am willing to give it credit for.
In my opinion, hundreds of self-help books out there have helped countless numbers of readers just as much as they have been useless to other readers. Also, even though some people like the use of a visual aid to focus their thoughts, I prefer my visions, affirmations, and goals to be mainly in written form, in the format of a personal journal ....continued on www.amazon.com

When you get home, lay-out your favorite pictures, quotes, etc into your vision board (For a great book on creating your vision board, see Joyce Schwartz’s The Vision Board ). Ladies, I know you get this. I don’t want to come off being sexist but women just do. Us guys? Well, many of us think such things may come off looking silly…or, God forbid, a bit sissy. Brian Kurth - http://briankurth.wordpress.com/ -
To keep your vision board with you -- be sure to add duplicates of some of the pix or even a digital pix of your whole vision board to your mobile device/phone etc and even a few favorite affirmations for your wallpaper too, tip:courtesy of Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD: the secret to an extraordinary life, www.visionboard.info to sign up for a free newsletter.

So there is something not so new (more than 100,000 examples online) that is really perfect for making your Vision Board in a few minutes and updating your affirmations! It's called WORDLE www.wordle.net.
I could go on and on explaining how exactly to use it to create your Vision Board and/or affirmations for the day. Or how you can take screengrabs and print them out and glue to your vision board or place in your digital vision board creations but I'm not going to do that. Instead, I suggest you go over to www.wordle.net and read about this fun little app! IT"S FREE!
And to give you a peek at how it works --here's a poster I made to promo my book reading at 5 p.m. 3/13/09 @SXSW (South by Southwest) of what else THE VISION BOARD.
