Most contemporary visions and the vision boards that go with them are frankly tame. Why is that?
Because their scope is limited to images chosen by their maker to meet predetermined definitions of what success, happiness and achievement should look like. But this is only from the finite frame of reference of the maker’s logical-left brain, dipping into a limited pool of information stored inside their cognitive mind.
This type of concept board originated in the world of design, where it served to capture ideas, moods and concepts together in one place. From the outset the designer is deliberately working to a brief and controlling the search filters to meet it.
This is creative planning; it’s not visioning.
It is not very inspiring either. It’s certainly not innovative. And no new thinking can breakthrough or emerge under these conditions.
On the contrary, look what happened for a range of intuitive vision board makers who chose to quell their logical-left brain in favour of their creative right-brain to explore where they might be heading in their lives. Such a variety of unpremeditated Intuitive Vision Boards emerged.

A 17-year old says ….
“I’ve never worked in silence for that long before and being in that particular room helped me gain clarity and to really think about and plan my vision board. I can now visualise how I’d like my life to be.”
A Copywriter says ….
“A very powerful technique. Not for one moment did my left-brain switch on so it felt wonderfully liberating. Mary is such a generous facilitator.”
A Healer says …
“I really enjoyed having the time and space for myself to be creative and in the moment. It gave me chance to explore and visualise where I want to go ….”
