A vision board is a creative way to visualize the things you desire to manifest in your life.
Over the years I have created many vision boards, including ones that are text only. The intention behind the board is that creating or writing out what you want to manifest is a way of reinforcing your desires and communicating with your angels and guides as to what it is your need or want.
In the past I have created vision boards where the three big desires, health, wealth, and happiness are each described separately.
For example, I envisaged wealth as a pot of gold, and where do you find post of gold usually? At the end of a rainbow. So, I found images of rainbows and pots of gold, I even printed out the claim form of a lottery corporation and put them all together on my vision board.
For health I printed out pictures of myself when I was a lot lighter heavy and in better health. I looked at You Tube videos and wished to have good health to walk long distances to photograph landscapes.
For happiness, I decided that meant a female companion and printed images of women that stood in place for a style or type that I felt I could live and like as a companion.
The images were all glossy, clean and I have a magnetic clip board so I could put them up in combinations that seemed to speak my needs and intentions.
The images were all separated, the interconnection between them was lost. Wealth would give the house, condo, or physical space I needed but being healthy would help me enjoy it and much more to. I needed the companion to change physical space in to a home.
I rearranged the pictures so they were closer together, but there was still nothing that showed how one would work with another. The companion was not linked to the space I wanted to manifest and health remained separate as well.
My most recent vision board has no immaculate images, it is all on one large sheet of paper, and rather than pictures of rainbows and pots of gold, or pictures of me from history when I was fit and healthy, or ideal women who may not look like the one my angels have aligned for me, the drawings are simple stick figures and shapes.
As I drew each for my vision board I realized there were smaller things that needed to be included. With a companion I can take a much needed and better holiday than going on my own, or with friends I am not connected to. The relationship is now not an idealized version, or even someone I know. She is someone I am vacationing with and I accept that I have not met her yet and have no preconception of what she will look like, be like. We are shown as being happy together.
I drew a circle around each and showed how each connected to the other and those all connected to something else, rather like laces that close a shoe, the connections closed the small and big pictures into a whole.
I appear in each circle as a simple stick figure with the word ‘Happy’ next to me.
Things like health are indicated by simple words, ‘fit, trim, and healthy.’ The earlier board with images of me as I was in the past did not represent the now or the future. I am not interested I trying to relive or recreate an old me, I am interested in the new me that will come into existence.
The vision board in the end should not be perfect it is the unexpected that brings amazing things to our lives. The risk of a perfect vision board is that what we receive may not match what we see on the wall. We are disappointed because life did not live up to a perfect image and we may ignore what we are given.
Kundalini is energy. It is dormant at the bottom of the spine, in the Root Chakra until awakened. It has been there since birth as one of the gifts people receive.
Kundalini awakening offers a profound opportunity for those called to follow a spiritual path. It gradually releases many patterns, conditions and delusions of the separate self. It can be threatening to the ego-structure because a person may feel a loss of interest in their old life and identity, and consciousness may go into unfamiliar expansive or empty states that are disorienting. It also makes people who are unfamiliar with it afraid they are ill or losing their minds. So, understanding it is important.
Once awakened it travels up the central Nadi – also called Sushumna, alongside or inside of the spine, it depends on the awakening and the individual. As it travels, the energy flows through each Chakra generating various levels of mystical experience for the individual. When it reaches the Crown Chakra, a change in consciousness, some say profound change, takes place. The awakened person may use the brain to transmute the energy into the highest form of energy called ‘Ojas’.
Dumo is the Tibetan Master Symbol. It represents the swirling fiery heat of the kundalini. Dumo or Dumo fire is the heat which ascends over the spine as a result of kundalini awakening. The unification of mind and body produce the emanation of heat. Heat is the lowest range of vibrations, radiating out to produce form or body.
It ignites the Sacred flame or kundalini fire. As kundalini is awakened and ascends up the central channel, it revitalizes and energizes the centre of each chakra, purifying the astral channels related to each of the chakras.
Dumo unifies the mind and body and works with the fire in the base chakra. It rapidly travels from the healer’s brain/hand to the area of the receiver’s body where it is most needed.
Reversing the spiral in the Dumo Fire Symbol to clockwise direction, starting at the base, inner Ki expands to connect with Ki beyond the body. When the expansion is complete, the direction automatically reverses bringing Ki within. A spiral creates a vortex that intensifies the energy. It pulls negative energy and disease out of the body and releases it and heals the soul.
It can be used on crystals, asking the stones to self-clear henceforth and forever
Use when making flower or gem elixirs; add Dumo Symbol and Power Symbol to the water while they are infusing in the sun
Its focus is healing
Can also be used in the attunement process with Violet Breath.
