Also called a Vision Board or Treasure Map, A Dream Board is basically a collage or other form of visual representation of your goals and dreams.

It is so much more than a creative project – it’s a focusing and dream manifestation exercise.

Some of the benefits:

  • Clarify your vision of where you want to be
  • Experience goal setting – the fun and inspiring way!
  • Focus your thoughts and energy on your desires
  • Program thoughts that support and nourish your dream
  • Increase motivation and commitment to achieve a desired goal

2.         Select random pictures that get your attention or that generate enthusiasm. Allow your mind to wander and follow your instinct. Find bright, colorful images that make you feel fantastic or get you thinking about what life could be like if it were you in that picture. Try to minimize words because images are often more expressive, powerful and speak more to our subconscious.

3.         Get a hold of either a Bristol board, magnetic board or a large blank painting canvas – whatever inspires you most and can be put up for you to observe on a regular basis.

4.         Schedule some time in your diary or to-do lists for cutting and gluing – yes, schedule it! Use as much time as you need…but be aware of perfectionism or other blocks if you keep procrastinating getting started on the collage part.

5.         Play some inspiring music, make yourself a favourite drink or treat and get started!

6.         Cut out the pictures (allow yourself to cut outside the lines if you feel like it!) and stick them on your board. Paste over any faces of the people you have cut out. This is *your* dream board!

7.         On the bottom of your board (or on a place that feels right for you), write the following sentence:

“This, or something better, now manifests for me in totally satisfying and harmonious ways, for the highest good of all concerned.”

8.         Place the dream board in a highly visible place to ensure that you look at it at least twice a day for about 5 minutes. Enjoy the images, enjoy your work and imagine yourself leading the life that is in your dream board.

You will soon notice that you’re starting to achieve some of the dreams you have stuck on your board.

  • Your choice of either: A large piece of cardboard, Bristol board, painting canvas, cork board (you get the picture – ha ha)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape (or both)
  • Paint, markers, stickers or whatever other materials you feel inspired to use
  • Music and treats, if you need an extra incentive J

Change | Coach Isabelle.com

It’s no surprise, consequently, that when I attempt to create change in my life, I often get off to a strong procrastinating start, thinking “I just don’t have the time, money, energy to deal with the struggle of changing”. The daily news, Hollywood, cheesy and far-from-reality-shows…Oh, and that doesn’t even include family drama, which tends to account for the bigger chunk of our drama pie. It implies that change is boring, tedious…Not fun.

Small Steps | Coach Isabelle.com

As my little sweetpea blessed me with a few moments of down time today (yes, his naps are that short!), I thought to myself: “Uhm, what do I do with myself now?!. If you’re into creative expression, what simple movement – or series of – reflects where you’re at right now, this instant. What is a very small thing I can do in very little time to experience meaning and well being, r i g h t n o w.

Workshops / Events | Coach Isabelle.com

With so much daily pressure to perform, and to measure up to impossible or boring standards, I was in the mood to create an opportunity for us to lighten up, reconnect with our essence, and to have fun with it. Leave your monkey mind aside and delve into free, easy creation – creation that makes you feel WHOLE and reminds you how alive you are. The purpose of this fun workshop is simple: JOYFUL “Because-I-Feel-Like-It” CREATION.

Inspiration | Coach Isabelle.com

Dance keeps us open to the hidden instruments, the subtle sounds that seek our expression from the other side…When your visionary ability feels hampered, dance yourself back to life…Put on a good song and let it happen.. It reminded me of how synchronicity and random conversations with strangers were a regular thing in my life when I lived in the city and walked everywhere.

YES to Me! | Coach Isabelle.com

After all, if most of us are striving for personal balance in our lives, what better way to achieve this than to counterbalance all the negativity we are bombarded with on a daily basis: on the news; radio; outbreak scares, and an implicit belief that it’s pompous to toot your horn.

Do it NOW | Coach Isabelle.com

Whenever I notice myself avoiding or resisting acting on something I actually want to do, I pay close attention to my excuses or even valid reasons for why I just can’t start now: feeling too unexperienced, knowledgeable or equipped; not knowing where to start; perfectionism, etc. Do you ever find yourself suddenly doing the dishes, tidying up or pretty much anything BUT work on a desirable goal once you’ve decided to create change in your life.
