Christmas, New Year and Easter are now all out of way. You should be more-or-less back to ‘normal’. Now, with distractions gone, is a perfect time to do some goal-setting.
Are you a Visual person? If so, writing down your goals and aspirations might not have worked for you. Seeing a picture of what you want or want to achieve is a good, constant reminder of where you are, where you want to be and what you want to achieve.
This is where your découpaging skills come into play to create your vision.
If you believe in the Law of Attraction, you can use découpage to attract the things you want in life.
I have been interested in Feng Shui and The Law of Attraction for a few years now, but I have recently come to the conclusion that both of these concepts are much like the modern day Vision Board.
The Chinese didn’t have colourful glossy magazines to cut up, like we do today, to create our vision. They created reminders to themselves of what lifestyle they wanted to lead and goals they wanted to achieve by placing items or auspicious figurines in a prominent position of each room and their home as a whole. Like the 3 legged frog with i ching coins to attract luck.
I have used this principle on my latest découpaging project – a decorative tray for my coffee table in the loungeroom.
I started with this cardboard carton and placed my goals and aspirations for 2015 using the principles of Feng Shui in accordance to a Bagua map or compass. A Bagua map or compass is a tool used in Feng Shui to map a room or location.
Different map sectors correspond to aspects of one’s life. These sectors are believed to relate to every activity of life and are divided into such categories as:
- Fame & Reputation
- Marriage & Relationships
- Wealth & Prosperity
- Health & Family
- Creativity & Children
- Knowledge & Self-Cultivation
- Career & Life Journey
- Travel & Helpful people
I have used the same repurposing principles used in my previous post How to Découpage with Junk Mail. Check this post out for further instructions.
The beauty of découpaging to set your goals is that once you have achieved them, you can update them as often as your successes occur with more images.
To Create anything,
To Change anything,
All it takes is just one thing,
The Power of You
