“The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that’s what life is.” ~ Abraham
The word bliss board is sometimes used interchangeably with vision board or dream board, but I like to create a bliss board for a slightly different purpose. Basically, the idea is to collect images, quotes and power words that simply make you feel blissful, that let your heart expand in joy. These images obviously can be part of your goals and dreams but don’t have to be at all. You could collect images of butterflies, seashells and unicorns without the intention of manifesting a unicorn on your front lawn by tomorrow morning.
The purpose of the bliss board is to shift your vibration. An image of a warm blanky by a fireplace may help you imagine sitting there doing nothing but enjoying the warmth and comfort. Or an image of a hammock on the beach may help you to imagine listening to the waves gently rolling along the sand as you relax and drift off into your afternoon nap in the sun. Instead of closing your eyes and imagining that you are in your ‘happy place’, open your eyes and look at your Bliss Board. Colours, food, animals all have the power to stir positive, expanding emotions in your heart and soul. This is what you want to create: positive vibrations of joy. And if you can get into a blissful state even for a short time, your energy will shift and your point of attraction will change. You will automatically attract blissful things, people, events and situations into your life.
Here are some suggestions on how to create a Bliss Board:
1. Pinboard/Posterboard Bliss Board
Collect images and words from magazines, brochures, newspapers, postcards, or google images and print them out. Then pin them on a pinboard or glue them on poster board. Don’t think about manifesting a car, or a house or Italian shoes, think simpler: pick any image that invokes positive feelings. This basically sidesteps the resistance that often creeps up when we work with vision boards. You may look at the red convertible sports car on your board, but then think: Yeah, right, this is never going to happen! How? How could it even happen? There is just no way…. etc. etc. When you simply choose images of landscapes, flowers, paintings etc, there is no resistance, you can just simply sit there and enjoy and let yourself be enveloped by bliss!
Note: as I am writing this, a colibri just visited me on my balcony! This is a perfect example: I just created a bliss board and I’m writing about bliss and then joyful little things like colibris wander (or fly) into my life. (-:
2. Pinterest Bliss Board
Consider creating a Bliss Board on Pinterest. It’s so easy, all you have to do is type the word bliss or joy or happiness and hundreds of images show up for you to choose from. Here is a great example of a Pinterest Bliss Board:
3. Desktop Wallpaper Bliss Board
You could also create a digital collage and make it into your desktop wallpaper. Or simply choose a really beautiful wallpaper for your desktop that creates divine feelings of joy and bliss every time you look at it.
4. Gallery Wall Bliss Board
You could also create a gallery wall in your living room or hallway. Simply collect a bunch of old picture frames, then fill them with beautiful images that make you feel blissfully divine! Consider pictures of your beautiful children or pets, or your last vacation in Puerto Vallarta, things you already own that you absolutely love, anything that makes your heart and soul sing.
