How do you ground yourself when your footing feels weak or your energy is shifting?

Vision boards are spaces where you can put up inspiration for projects, career moves, personal goals, even how you want to decorate your home. Many of us are most familiar with Pinterest (mine is here). Gabrielle Bernstein talks on "Andersen Live" about the use of vision boards as a means for effecting real life changes (I'm linking rather than embedding so as to cue right up to it, though her tips through out this video are highly effective as well).
I love the idea of the vision board—to create the space to manifest your own desires and get in touch with what you want in your life. Here’s the kicker: you’re already doing this every single day.
When you sign on to Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Blogger, and write a status, a note, a blogpost you are creating a vision board for how you are seen and how you want to be seen without even realizing it. How many times have you re-shared a political meme, a cry for activism, even a photo of a cat or a dog? The hundreds of friends you may or may not encounter on a daily basis but see online access this cyber expression of you as being connected to the real you. Rightfully so, when you consider how it takes your authorization to post, repost, or share.
Go to your homepage now of any of these accounts and scroll through. What are you already sharing? This is your daily, living, breathing vision board. Is this a true representation of who you are? Is this the person you want to be, the tone you want to set?
Right now, right this second, get present in your now-moment. Take a deep breath and inhale expectations you set for yourself and expectations you feel others pressuring onto you. Now, roll the shoulders back and exhale deeply, releasing those pressures. What do you feel? What is present right now in you? What is missing?
Take a few minutes and jot down some thoughts about it. Don’t judge what comes out, just write freely and honestly. Share with yourself, just how you’d want a good friend to share and to love and be honest with you.
Once you’re done, take these notes as permission from Spirit, Universe, Creator, to truly serve the divine presence inside of you. With this permission, reconsider those cyber spaces as optimal times to exercise those actions and feelings and re-write that daily Vision Board. Don’t wait for someone else to inspire; inspire yourself. Whether it's on or off line, everything we do is "real" life. Cyber anonymity is no excuse for putting off the call of the Divine Self. Live your vision in all things, in the now-moment.
Love & Light to you all,
Love & Light to you all,
