DECLARATION FOR MISTRESSES : Wants Versus Needs - MAKING A VISION BOARD- Focusing and Manifesting

There's a Rolling Stone's song, "You Can't Always Get What You Want", that has a chorus that goes kind of like this, "but if you try sometime, you might find, you get what you need."

Figuring out what you Need and what you Want, what you have to have to live and thrive and won't "settle" for, at least not for long, because it would take you too far from your dreams, is about knowing where you're at right now but where you'd like to go. 

Needs come first. When you're Needs aren't met you're stuck in survival and not likely to progress to Want. 

May I suggest that you make a Vision Board to help you focus on the Wants?

If you don't want to do this alone, you can throw a party to begin your Vision Board. Invite your friends to show up with stacks of old magazines and art supplies to share like scissors, glue, glitter, markers, paint.

You, the hostess, can provide foam core board which is like heavy duty poster board with a foam in the middle that can hold up being tacked or taped to the wall.  It's sturdier than the thinner poster board.

It might be nice to play some relaxing background music - classical, piano, Spanish Guitar, New Age chakra tune ups, as well as having a selection of teas, fruit, healthy snacks ready for your leisurely activity and quietude.  You need at least three hours and five would be better.

You go through the magazine cutting our pictures and words and word phrases that remind you of the things you Need and the things you Want. 

Cut them out and apply them artistically to your board. 

Not only is making the board helping you affirm and focus but looking at it and adding to it over the next few months can also help you move you towards your goals.
