Sometimes it's great to get clear on how you want your life to feel. The chakras provide a great tool for focusing in on areas in your life that you want to grow.
Initially I was going to post images of specific goals I had in mind. You know, the typical things like lose some weight and travel the world. The board didn't feel right though. It felt like I was trying to achieve goals that other people might want, instead of what really felt true to me.
So I kept layering images and it turned out that the symbolism of the colors and images started to resemble some basic chakra meanings.
If you are interested in creating a vision board, infusing the board with spiritual significance can feel a lot more true to what you really want to create in life. Danielle LaPorte has a book called the Desire Map, which drives home the premise that goals should be based around how you want to feel in life instead of just what you want to do. Really underneath impulses and drives lies an emotional bedrock, from the depths of your being you want to feel certain ways which is why you do the things you do in this life.
Here's a basic rundown of the Chakras and their associated colors and meanings. The next time you make a vision board, chose a couple of chakras that you feel drawn to and represent them on your board through color and imagery. Also write up a short list of how you want to feel by journaling about the things you do in life and why you do them. You could even glue the list onto your board to start figuring out ways to bring those feelings to reality. Then when you look at the board you will be in tune with your spiritual goals as well as hone in on what you really want in life.
