The Power of a Dream Board

Saturday, October 11, 2008


Julie and Colin Angus on their journey and as my PC's Screen Saver

When I joined SparkPeople one of the early suggestions was to create a Dream Board. I was aware of this concept from hearing of its success from many people that had used it successfully.

I decided to make my SparkPage my Dream Board. I have created paper collages all of my life and I liked the idea of creating a computer version. The pictures that I chose were how I wanted to look, what I wanted to be able to do, and places that I wanted to see. Over time, as my interests changed, I changed my photos in my “Pictures” and the ones that I displayed on my SparkPage.

Recently I became a follower of Julie and Colin Angus as they made their human powered trip from the north of Scotland to Syria. I put the pictures of their journey on my SparkPage and thought that I might not be able to row in France or ride a bicycle in Germany on their many bike trails and started looking at places in the US and Canada for places to duplicate small aspects of their journey. I look at these pictures on my SparkPage almost every day and as the “Secret” and the law of attraction tell us, what we keep in our minds is what we manifest in the world.

Now I am busy packing, getting ready to move to France to live near Germany in the province of Lorraine. I will be able to row on the beautiful rivers of France and Germany and ride the bike trails of Europe from a nearby home base in a beautiful farm house in France. It is the fulfillment of a dream and it comes “out of the blue”, off my electronic Dream Board into my life. It is an exciting time in my life. Now I need to learn French, brush up on my high school German and clear out my attached barn in France to create a place to build my boat to row on the canals and rivers of the old world.

Keep dreaming…
