Many people feel that a vision board which is a visual map you create to design a path to your best possible life (see www.whatisavisionboard.com) is created once a year at New Years and then just tacked onto a wall or thrown behind a chair after a week or so is the way they vision their lives.
VISIONING YOUR LIFE is so much more then cutting and pasting pictures together in a pretty collage format. That's why I suggest that you create a vision board at least quarterly -- summer, fall, winter, spring,
BUT did you know that you can use a Vision Board creative session as a method to refuel your heart and soul? That's what I did recently when I created this FAITH VISION BOARD:
Joyce Schwarz, best selling author THE VISION BOARD book created this FAITH VISION BOARD to help her refuel her heart and soul with what else-- FAITH! You can see how to create vision boards and do life and work visioning by subscribing to THE VISION BOARD newsletter at www.visionboard.info and by reading a free chapter of THE VISION BOARD book at: http://tinyurl.com/seeinsidebook Email: email@example.com for more info on upcoming classes or private coaching with internationally acclaimed corporate trainer and speaker Joyce Schwarz.
HOW DID I CREATE THE FAITH VISION BOARD? Just the thought of creating a FAITH VISION BOARD evolved out of my teaching my AVR class (Accredited Vision Card Reader (TM) course : http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1737363501
During the class last night I mentioned that one of the students in the class had been a coaching client of mine long ago and she had given me a necklace that had a mustard seed in it which symbolizes faith because a mustard seed which is smaller than a poppyseed or a dandelion seed can grow higher then most trees.
Then coincidentally later last night I thought just for fun because it's a Friday (today) I would see what Naitonal Holiday it was -- you know like National Pickle Day or National Watermellon day etc. Well it turned out that August 5 is Naitonal Mustard day.
So it dawns on me to look up the parable of the mustard seed from the bible and what do I find online is this succinct version of the parable (see pix below:
This parable of the Mustard seed was inspiration for Joyce Schwarz FAITH VISION BOARD which is posted at www.visionboard.info blog for THE VISION BOARD BOOK.
NEXT I searched for more images and found these wonderfaul pass it on cards that show a Mustard Bush/Tree and the parable which I thought were really stunning so I took a screengrab of this too for my FAITH VISION BOARD (you can see more than 100 examples of vision boards in full color in THE VISION BOARD BOOK go to : http://tinyurl.com/seeinsidebook for a preview.
In creating my FAITH VISION BOARD I also saw beautiful photos of mustard seeds and mustard seed fields so decided to add some of those to my FAITH VISION BOARD creation.
The glofy of this Mustard seed field in full bloom reminds me of a Van Gogh painting -- one of my favorite artists so of course I had to add it to my FAITH VISOIN BOARD which was inspired by the power of a mustard seed to represent that even a bit of faith can grow and bloom an enhance your life!

Seeing the tiny mustard seed against the outline of a hand is fascinating for indeed it is one of the tiniest seeds I've ever seen. How that seed could grow into a tallest bush or tree is truly a work of faith.
T0 look at the Mustard tree is just amazing -- there it is in its glory from seed to fruition -- the cycle of life continues.
And I arranged all of these pictures, addes some gorgeous swatches of color in greens and whites and a few abstract painting kind of strokes and voila there was my FAITH VISION BOARD.
Note I usually recommend that you put your picture in the center of the vision board to signify that you are living the vision. But this board's design was so powerful that I thought it was something I wanted to share with everyone so I left the center open there so you could add your own picture or just use the FAITH VISION BOARD as what I call a DEFININIG IMAGE to inspire you to truly BELIEVE!
