If you have never heard of a vision board or if you have never created a vision board, click this link to read a blog post I wrote to my single sisters about how to create a vision board.

Please scroll down to the picture showing the vision board and start reading from there, because anything before that is talking to single ladies.

What is a vision board? A vision board is simply a tool used to see your goals, dreams and visions that you’ve written down on paper, translated into visual form by using real images or pictures.

For example; you wrote in your journal that you one day want to visit the Fiji Islands. You saw a picture in the magazine of the Fiji Islands, you can cut that picture out of the magazine and paste it to your vision board. Now, you can look at that dream and visualize yourself on the Fiji Island.The vision board itself has no power to make anything happen. It can not answer any prayers, and your faith should not be in the vision board itself. It is just a tool used to see your visions and dreams before your eyes by using real pictures. Got it?

Your faith should always be engaged in trusting the Heavenly Father and his word that these things are coming to pass.

It is not unscriptural that you are writing down the visions and dreams that you believe God is showing you for your life.

In fact, the scriptures teaches us to write the vision down and make it plain or clear!

Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV

And the Lord answered me, and said write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it!

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.God said that he will give us the desires of our hearts if we delight ourselves in him. If you really want to know what it means to truly delight yourself in the Lord click here.

Psalm 37: 4

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

God also said, when the people do not have a vision for their life, they perish. You need to dream and you need to have goals. It keeps your life in forward movement and unstuck.

I don’t know if you know it or not, but you were created to do good things and you were also created for good works. I will share with you what the scriptures says about this.

Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepth the law, happy is he.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them,God wants you to believe him for the impossible. He said, if you can believe Him for the impossible, you can have it!

Matthew 19:26 NIV

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

Now that we’ve established that it’s not unbiblical to create a vision board and that our faith must be engaged in the Heavenly Father at all times, lets find out how to get the best use out of our vision board.

13 Principles I Use To Manifest My Goals And Dreams On My Vision Board!

1. After you have created your vision board, place it in an area where you can look at it at least twice a day.

I love looking at my vision board when I wake up in the morning and right before I go to bed. I have my vision board displayed in open view in my bedroom so when ever I walk pass it, I can see it.

2. Believe: Really believe this can one day happen for you. Believe that you are worthy to receive anything good in your life.

happy-black-woman-with-banner_1149-19441732944934.jpg

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3. Take at least 15 minutes daily to concentrate on your vision board. Take inventory of what you are asking to come into your life, by doing so, you are ingraining the images into your subconscious mind because what you pay attention to in your life is what you are attracting to you.

For example, you want to cut out eating sweets from your diet, but you are watching TV shows about baking desserts and yummy treats. On your job, people are constantly bringing doughnuts, cakes and snacks, and you are around this all day.

What do you think is going to happen eventually? You are going to give in to the temptation because those images are ingrained in your mind from you paying attention to them all day long.

4. Visualize yourself with your goals and dreams. Imagine what it would feel like to obtain your goals and dreams. Pretend that you are actually living your new life when you look at your vision board.

Do not just look at your board but actually feel all those wonderful feelings as you are pretending as if you’ve already obtained the goals and dreams on your vision board. What you are doing at this moment is engaging your faith.

stress-free-640x426-1783100973.jpg

Remember when you were a kid and you engaged in pretend play? You were so happy and so engaged in the process of play, that you got so wrapped up in it and forgot it was just play.

You would even get into an arguement with your friends, sisters and brothers about, “it’s my red car” and neither one of you owned a car but in that moment it became real for you.

Take that same childhood naivety into your pretend play while visualizing yourself with your new life.

Romans 15:13 KJV

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. Say the scriptures and confessions on your vision board out loud, so it sinks down into your subconscious mind and heart.6. Choose to share your vision board with people you really trust and with your purpose partners (someone who is just as invested in seeing your visions, goals and dreams come to pass)

If you do not have anyone in your life that you can share your vision board with, then keep it between you and the Heavenly Father.

7. The benefit of sharing your vision board with someone you trust and who believes in you, is to have a partner to play your childhood game with (Pretend Play).

The both of you get together and start pretending that you are driving in your Lexus 570 and you are traveling to Maui tomorrow and you gotta hurry up so that you won’t miss your flight. It’s lots of fun to do. I play this game with my husband a lot!

8. Stay away from doubting Thomas and negative Nancy. These are people who causes you to doubt, abort or cancel your dreams and goals altogether.

The moment you realize that a person is negative in an area where you are trusting God to manifest for you, shut it down and stop talking to that person about that subject! Stop sharing with them immediately.9. Never come into agreement with anyone who is speaking opposite of what you believe God to manifest in your life. You should speak back to anyone who is being negative about your dream.

Single ladies, if you want to be married, when you hear someone say there are a shortage of men, you say, in a kind manner (you do not have to be rude), girl men are plentiful and besides, I only need the one that God hand picked just for me.

10. Always pray to the Heavenly Father and ask for guidance as you navigate to your new life.

Ask Him to give you His best in every situation and detach from the outcome.
Don’t try and figure out how it is going to happen. Your job is to believe and trust God.11. Read books and look at testimonies online of others who have obtain their dreams in the areas you want to obtain yours. This will keep your faith engaged in your goals and dreams.

12. When the spirit of truth prompt your heart to do something towards your dreams and goals, take fast actions.

13. Lastly, you never talk against the things you believe to happen for you on your vision board by doubting because it will take longer to come or not come to pass at all.

James 1:6-7

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord

These are my 13 principles I use to manifest my goals and dreams on my vision board. Now go and create you a masterpiece Vision Board.

5 Things You Should Do When You feel Like Everything Is Falling Apart!

 “5 Things You Should Do When You Feel Like Everything Is Falling Apart.”

What things are consuming your thoughts? What are you so concerned about? Well Guess what? My God cares about it as well, you need answers and He is here to give them to you. I hear people saying God don’t speak to me. God speaks all the time but are you ready to listen to who God uses and what he uses to get the answers to you.

I woke up to this message, I learned to stop questioning myself and learn to trust the voice that is speaking. After all, I am just a vessel that has allowed the Heavenly Father to speak through me, rather the message is for me or for you, I am going to capture the conversation.

So what was God revealing to me upon waking up this morning?

bible-scripture-gospel-testament-52513.jpeg

1. When your world is changing around you, stay connected to God.

There is a tendency to disconnect from God and try to figure things out on our own. The urgency of the matter will try and get us to move to fast and react now. Sometimes out of haste we make the wrong move, and out of desperation we jump the gun to fast.

Seasons change, businesses change, locations change, your kids are changing, your marriage is changing, the way our world works is changing, your vision has changed and if we are not careful or in tune to what is going on around us, we would be wondering to ourselves what is going on, I never had to work so hard at trying to keep this thing going. It was once prosperous, we use to be so connected to each other, what happen to my babies, they use to tell me everything, I never had to work this hard to keep this business afloat.

We have to keep up with the times, our world is evolving. What was detestable to wear in public years ago, is now the new normal. Temptation is different now, unlike David in the Bible who stumble upon temptation when he saw Bathsheba taking a shower, now temptation comes to your front door and right in your face.

Social Media is the new game changer, and if you are in any kind of business, it is advantageous that you have some kind of on going social media presence. I know we want things to stay the same, but everything is changing. The way we relate to our kids have changed, you got to be the parent that is in the know, it is all kinds of influences that are effecting the way our kids are behaving. They speak in codes and ebonics, and the messages are hidden in the codes. Parents, we must be able to recognize the new language amongst our kids, so we can understand what our children are into.

The way you’ve done business has changed, your old tactics is not working anymore, it is time for you to find out where your customers are and what do they need from you. You should be contemplating on how you can better serve your customers? How can you make your customer feel important, and what will set you apart from all of the rest.

We are in the age of information, where you practically can do everything from the comfort of your own home. You can shop online, pay your bills on line and even go to church on line.

Churches are making it easy for people to connect with them and fellowship with their congregation, even if you live in a different state, town or city. You can connect with them and be in the same service with them via live streaming.

So why should your customers leave the comfort of their own home to patronize you, when there are so many options available to them. What experience would you give them to make it worth their while? I know some of the topics I am talking about sounds ridiculous, but while you are trying to figure it out, the world is changing.

I remember my husband and I went into this movie theater where we live. This movie theater use to be real popular. It was located in a high price neighborhood, so we just assumed that it is going to be a more mature crowd, but when my husband and I sat down, we realized that we were sitting amongst a new generation of young people and for once in my life, I felt like I was stuck in time. Everything about these young people were different, the way they looked, their mannerism was different, the way they spoke and the way they dressed were different. We did not fit in at all, my husband and I agreed that this was going to be the last time we visit that movie theater. One day we drove pass the movie theater, and they were upgrading it and made it into a upscale movie theater. We have been back several times since the new grand opening. Their clientele has changed. Now young and mature come there to watch movies..

How are you going to stay current when everything around you is changing? I know you use to score big with the old system but now it is not working with the new vision. Your hustle has to be different. You are going to have to find new ways of doing thing.

2. Embrace the change that is around you. 

How can you embrace change when it seems like things are falling apart around you. When you feel like you are falling apart inside. You do not have to accept the change around you but you are going to have to embrace it. Because whether the Bible agrees with it or not and whether you agree with it or not, it is changing or it has changed. The sooner you embrace it (I am not saying agree with sin) and find new ways of dealing with it, then you can find a solution that will make it work for the good of all that is involved.

Sometimes we just do not want to accept the way things are and we do not have to. But if you and I embrace the fact that it is what it is, then we can let go of the attachment that we placed on ourselves, that it is our job to fix it or fix someone. When we let go of all of the judgement, let go of trying to hold it all together, let go of the pride, let go of us trying to play God.

If we can let go and let God judge the situation, and we just learn to love and trust that what ever happens in this situation will work out for our highest good because we have surrendered and gave it to God, then God can step in and show us what needs to be done next.

3. Stay calm.

I think the mind goes into over drive trying to find solutions to why our world has changed and trying to find the pieces to put it all back together like it once was. You can really work yourself up into panic mode if you are not careful with your thoughts. I know it feels like you are not doing nothing to solve the problem if you just sit and be quiet. But being still is probably what you need to do so you can hear God speaking to you.

When you feel anxious, and like anxiety is trying to rise up on the inside of you, go into your quiet place and breathe. What is happening to you is that your thoughts are out of control. You have to bring your thoughts back into captivity. You do that by calming the mind through meditation and reading the scriptures. Psalm 37:25  says, I have been young, and now I am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. If God said it, you better believe he is a man of his word!

4. Pray

Now that you have cleared the cutter in your mind, fill it up with talking to God about it. He is the only one who can show you what you need to do. Prayer changes things. Cry your heart out to God, be honest with him, real honest because it says in Psalms 66:18 – If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:. He knows everything about you anyway.

You are in a temporary season, make sure that you forgive anybody that have hurt you, betrayed you, offended you or abandoned you. Clear your heart of any anger, bitterness, malice and strife. In order for you to move forward and get your prayers answered,  you have to have a clean heart before God. God cannot forgive you until you have forgiven others. Matthew 5:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.

Ask God questions, any questions you need answered. Let God know your fears and your struggles. Ask him for help! The Bible says in Psalm 46:1 (KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I have included a link to scriptures that tells you that God will answer your prayers. Meditate on those scriptures. God wants to help you reestablish your relationships, your business, your finances, your self-esteem and anything else you need establishing. Being thankful and grateful goes along way, in fact God says, Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

5. Strategize!

Ask God to show you your dream team? And surround  yourself with others who can help you get to the next level. If you are the only knowledgeable one in the room and everyone is listening to you, then who are you listening to. This is new territory for you. You have to swallow your pride and ask for help! Right now you are losing battleground. You have to get around people who defeated Goliath already. You need to loose your girlfriends who are not married and are trying to tell you how to leave your husband. You need to get around some seasoned woman who got down in the trenches and fought to keep the other woman from stealing her husband. You need to find your Naomi! You need to find your real prayer warriors! Ask God whose heart you can trust. Just because people around appear to be faithful doesn’t mean they are.

I love listening to Oprah tell her story about when she brought her own network. She said, this was new territory for her. Oprah was use to people showing up for her on her syndicated network. After 25 years of successful television, Oprah decided that she would start her own network. She just assumed with so many followers and loyal fans, they would  just follow her to her own network. She said what she didn’t realize is, everybody did not have cable and everybody wasn’t getting cable just to watch her. Oprah stated that in that season of her life, she was just getting back what she was feeling about herself on the inside. Which was shame, fear, she didn’t know what she was doing and feeling like she was failing. People were saying all kinds of cruel things about her and putting out negative energy about how her network was doing bad and how she is not going to make it, but in order for her  Oprah to change her current situation she had to change her inner dialogue.

The moment she started to change the story she was telling herself, in that moment she could find a solution to save her network. She had to shut down from listening to the naysayers both outwardly and inwardly. She had to get a different strategy. She had to ask for help. This was a very humbling experience for Oprah. She spoke on platforms I know she didn’t want to speak on. She partner with people that she didn’t think she would ever partner with. She use the power of youtube and the internet so people could continue to connect with her without paying for cable. She went on a Life Class Tour, she did things that she did not want to do, but she had to make up her mind that she was going to sink or swim. She chose to swim. I am sure Oprah felt vulnerable. She was use to people fighting to get on her show, now she was having to ask people to buy into her network. Oprah became a game changer and so can you. You have to get a plan in place and see it through. It might be uncomfortable but you can do it! Don’t give up! Fight for your life, family and your destiny!

4 Ways to Creating a Beautiful Life!

9478919558_a605adeb93_h

I am inspired to write about “4 Ways To Creating a Beautiful Life” because I hear from so many women who feel like they can not create a beautiful life for themselves.

A life where they are truly happy and fulfilled. A life where they can wake up everyday and actually look forward to their daily task, responsibilities and assignments. A life where they are enjoying living in the space, with the influence and with the people that has been assigned to them.

Creating a beautiful life does not mean that everything in your world has to be perfect. Creating a beautiful life does not mean you have to be rich, so you can buy your way to a beautiful life. Creating a beautiful life is created from the inside out.

You have the ability and the power to create a beautiful life, but you are going to need to make some really tough decisions, get free of people pleasing and change some mindsets to create the beautiful life that you see for yourself.

Before I tell you how to create this beautiful life, I must tell you that a beautiful life first begins with knowing who created you. It begins with having a relationship with your Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. God changes your heart, reveals purpose, desires and longings that are truly in your heart. God also exposes what and where we are placing our identity in. He reveals true agendas and false expectation that is put on you by yourself, and that is put on you by others.

We as women, take on everybody’s yokes and burdens. We set aside what we are truly feeling in our heart. We are living everybody’s desires, purpose and happiness except our own. We care way to much about what others think of us, we seek opinions of others when God has already revealed to us what we should be doing. Women are leaving this earth unfulfilled, unhappy and just taking what has been dealt to them. Your life do not have to remain this way. You can receive a real BREAKTHROUGH IN CREATING A BEAUTIFUL LIFE for yourself.

God tells us in Matthew 28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

I know that we all want to be pleasing to others around us. We all desire to make our life count for something. But women, are feeling guilty, inadequate, unfulfilled, unhappy, condemned and this false sense of loyalty to others agendas, that it is making it impossible to create a beautiful life.

So what are the “4 Ways to Creating this Beautiful Life” that I am talking about? You first have to create it in your thoughts, and then you are going to write your thoughts on paper. After you have written your thoughts on paper,  you must decree and declare it in the atmosphere. After you have decreed and declared in the atmosphere, you must visualize your beautiful life.

THOUGHTS

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. To create a beautiful life, you have to stop thinking negative about your life! This scripture tells us we must take our minds and think on things that are pure, lovely, good, excellent and praise worthy. Sounds like all of those words are positive to me.

WRITE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PAPER

Any time God wanted to establish something, he always told people to write it down on tablet, stone or paper. Listen to what God told Habakkuk in Habakkuk 2:2-3. Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run.”For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.…writing the vision of your beautiful  life helps you to want to put it into action, and in time, your beautiful life will unfold.

 DECREE AND DECLARE IT 

Remember I told you the first steps to creating a beautiful life is turning your heart to God, when you do, God said one of the benefits is this scripture. Job 22:28 “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways. What does it means to decree. A decree means an official order issued by a legal authority. To declare means to say something in a solemn and empathic manner. God is saying that He has given you the power and the authority to order your days, months and your years. The way you order it, is what will be established for you.

Do you want to know what you have been allowing and decreeing in your life? Just look around you. You created the life you are now living, rather it is beautiful or not. You created it. You created the people that is part of your life. You created the environment that you are living in. The job that you work at, you created it. But I have good news for you, if you do not like some parts of your life, you can make it beautiful! All you have to do is do what I am telling you to do to create a beautiful life.

VISUALIZE YOUR NEW LIFE

Some believer thinks it is unholy or unethical to use visualization. Well, let me tell you  a little secret. God is the creator and inventor of visualization. How do you think this whole Universe came to be. Wasn’t it God who created the whole world in seven days. When God created the Universe there were  3 things that he did to create it. He saw what he wanted, He spoke what he wanted and He created what He wanted. And every time God was done with what he created, He would call it Good! Guess what? God has given us the power to do the same thing in creating a beautiful life for ourselves.

Proverb 29:18 reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. If you do not visualize your life being better, how is it going to get better?

We can complain about everything in our lives and the more we complain, the more things remain the same and eventually perish like the Bible says. We must see like God sees. We must call those things in our lives good, just like God calls them Good. We must think grand about our life in whatever state we find ourselves in. When we do, we would begin the see the beauty that has always been in our life.

You have to be GRATEFUL in your life. You have to thank God for everything. I try and practice writing down at least 10 things that I am grateful for everyday. During this exercise keeps me in a trusting, peaceful and joyous state. What I realize is, God wants me to have a beautiful life as much as I want it for myself, and He provides me with every opportunity to create this life.

What are the some of the beautiful attitudes, attributes, mindsets and things you want to see in that beautiful life? Give yourself permission to live your beautiful life.

I want you to write down exactly how you want to feel in your beautiful life and what you want your beautiful life to look like. Be realistic in your expectation in creating this beautiful life. What do I mean when I say this. If you are already married, do not imagine yourself being married to a different man. Visualize yourself falling back in love with the husband that you are currently married to. Visualize your husband dating you again and feeling like teenagers all over again.

If you desire to live in a new house, write that down, but while you are waiting for your new house to manifest, create a beautiful life in the home you are currently living in. See yourself cleaning, organizing and removing unwanted items. Visualize yourself painting the walls in a new color and buying fresh flowers to create a beautiful atmosphere in your home.

If you are a mom, visualize yourself being confident and happy in raising your children and influencing their life in a beautiful way. Fall in love with the daily tasks that goes into motherhood like setting schedules, serving your family by making sure they have clean clothes, finding fun activities that the whole family can enjoy and creating meals for your family.

Mom and wives, visualize yourself taking care of yourself by treating yourself to a pampering session. Visualize yourself taking care of your body by exercising and eating healthy. Visualize having fun with your husband. Visualize wonderful communication, passionate loving making, laughter and friendship.

Practice saying no to things that is stealing time away from you creating this beautiful life. Anything that is feeling like a burden and a sense of false responsibility will never bring you joy. Make a list of all the ways you people please just to feel accepted or wanting people to think you are a good person or a good Christian. You are good whether you do things for people are not, because God said you are good and that settles it.

NOW GO AHEAD AND START CREATING YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE!

I would love to hear from you. Just leave a comment or tell me some of the ways you want to create a beautiful life for yourself!
