What the Heck is a Vision Board?

Guest blogger Rachel Sarah: Do you remember Renee, the jewelry designer from Los Angeles on "The Bachelor," who went on and on about her "vision board"?

Vision Board

While vision boards might scare some guys, they seem to be catching on with single women.

And I'm one of them.

Arielle Ford, author of just-published "The Soulmate Secret," is a bit too perfect for me. But what she says about vision boards - and how they help you "manifest the love of your life" -- is spot on.

In short, Ford details nine steps help you find the man or woman of your dreams. These include healing the emotional wounds of the past, feeling hopeful, and believing that someone is out there for you.

If you're a list-maker like me, making a list is part of the plan. No matter what your stats about a future partner looks like, Ford says that the top two on your list are always the same.

The Soulmate Secret

You are looking for someone who:

1. Is available (no married men, thank you very much!)

2. Lives within a 50-mile radius of you (or, you need to willing to move anywhere in the world)

The rest of your list is unique to you. If you want a peek of my list, here's "The Man I Hope to Love."

Ford's last step is creating a vision board. Sit down with magazine and cut out pictures that represent the life you want to create.

To bring in 2009, I made a vision board, to answer the question "What makes me happy?"

It's actually taped to the wall above my desk [that's the image here!] with images that represent love, passion, inspiration, good food, openness, hope, money, travel, calmness.

Amazingly, after a year-plus dating dry spell, I've had a number of amazing dates in the past month. Maybe there is something to this...

Your turn:
Are you single and open to love? Have you ever made a vision board?

Just read your article and there is a new product that is being introduced this year and it is called Miracle Maps. They are vision boards, excellent quality. What I like about them is that we are all busy in life and MM comes with over 100 magnetic words and affirmations that you can place on a tri fold magnetic board. I take it with me to work and bring it back home, it is that portable. I put my picture on the board and surround my picture with the magnetic words. There are 2 products Acheiving Prosperity & Attracting Your Soulmate. You can view this great product at
I love it and believe it and it is working for me!

Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.
