What I Really Really Want Is What I Really Really Desire

As you continue to determine your intentions for this new year, it’s helpful to distinguish between your wants and your desires. Your wants are mostly all of your cravings for more material things: a bigger house, fancier car, new clothes, the latest iPhone and other gadgets.

They’re the kind of things people often put on their Vision Boards – –
hoping to manifest a more abundant life of stuff. Although there’s a whole industry telling us we’ll be happier having this “prosperous” life, studies show that these things only account for 10-15% of our happiness in life.  And once we get these material things, our sense of happiness quickly goes away and we want more.

My Vision Board

This morning I feel inspired to create a Vision Board for the Healing of the World.

My Board differs from the usual Board that focuses on getting a fancy car,
a house, travel, or an abundance of money.

My Vision Board sees a world with clean air and water ~
where everyone is fed, clothed, and sheltered ~living together in peace and joy ~
where all children are safe and have wonderful opportunities for education ~
where the environment is thriving in the natural state in which it was created ~
where all have a spiritual connection with their Divine Source.

Since we create what we focus our energy on,  I am using the uplifting version of Iz’s (Israel Kamakawio’ole)  song that combines Somewhere Over the Rainbow with What a Wonderful World to envision the world I desire for all people.

Here is the link to that video if you’d like to join me.

This Vision Board also encourages me to use my creative imagination every day to
come up with ways that I can act in order to manifest this beautiful world.

What’s on your Vision Board?
