Do you ever still wonder? I guess.

Visualization is a powerful mental exercise. It has been proven by many, including Psychology, as a branch of Science.

So, what’s the secret then? Before you create your vision board, you need to have the right frame of thinking,

Conceive this way:

Direct your focus to your best way to feel. Or on what’s the output feeling. Not only on the things that you wished for.  It must be connected to your heart — which deals with your “feelings” as this would manifest into a reality.

Yes, so we guess, we can now proceed to the next best thing to do.

Create.
