VISIONING- Ten Steps to Designing the Life of Your Dreams

If you are ready to take your dreams out of your head and see them in physical reality then NOW is the time to do it.

If you enjoy connecting your mind and heart - allowing yourself to "play" in a fun hands on project - following simple 1-2-3 instructions from a leader in the field (famous pioneer art therapist Lucia Capacchione. Ph.D.) Get the benefit of working with the creativity of Dr. Lucia and her years working for Walt Disney Imagineering.

She shows you the exact 10 steps to follow - just like cooking using a proven recipe, it works every time if you follow the steps...

She leads you on how to decide on what you want to create in your life, such as

  • a new or improved relationship
  • the home of your dreams
  • travel to exotic places
  • money, a new career or a new business
  • heath, well-being, and weight loss
  • conceive a baby

Our Visioning Workshops are the most fun - up to 30 people of all ages sitting around tables - sharing magazines - following Dr Lucia's format (right out of the book) soft music playing in the background - this is a great project for "Family Night" or friends getting together etc.

Follow her process of going thru magazines looking for and cutting out phrases and pictures - or simply writing and gluing photo's you already have on a piece of construction paper that fits your theme

You will simply be amazed of the power of your creation - and how fast you can use the creative power of your mind and spirit to create the life of your dreams!

Successful "visionaries" tell their inspiring stories of success and share their collages and how it has changed their lives.

Visioning is rooted in the idea that you can design your own life, that it is within your own power to:

  • take charge of your own imagination

  • become a purposeful dreamer

  • design the life of your dreams

  • Vision your dream into reality

Visioning begins by naming your heart's desire and translating it into pictures and words on paper. For a Sample Exercise - Click Here

It is the same process designers, architects, and engineers use when they get an idea and create sketches, models, and blueprints.

THEY know the alchemy of turning thoughts into things!

There's nothing mysterious about it!

A practical and lavishly illustrated guide to realizing one’s true dreams. Through Photo collage-making and journaling, one is lead on a playful inner journey to the Creative Self. As the dream unfolds in a "vision map," the tools are given for dealing with inner obstacles of fear, self-doubt, and criticism.

Remember, If you are ready to take your dreams out of your head and see them in physical reality then NOW is the time to do it.

Spark "the designer within you"...  
Put Walt Disney's notion that "if you can dream it, you can do it" into your life. 

This is both creative and fun - remember, no special talent is required - if you can use a pair of scissors and turn pages in a magazine and glue - you can do this!

  • BUT... How to I do it?

  • How can I take what I'm day dreaming about - and bring it into my physical world?

Visioning simply means... Thinking in Pictures...

Practical Visionaries in any field often say that they think in pictures.

Remember the old saying... One picture is worth 1,000 words?

Visual thinking is second nature for artists, designers, and architects who have developed this innate ability as part of their craft.

Filmmakers and theme park designers create storyboards (cartoon like panels telling the highlights of their story in captioned pictures)

Successful executives, business entrepreneurs, scientists, writers, athletes, and just plain 'folks" use mental imagery every day to "design in the mind" what they want to accomplish in the world

This has been true in the field of competitive sports for many years, in methods such as the inner game of tennis, golf, baseball, basketball and football etc.

What was once considered a highly esoteric pursuit - thinking things into reality - has now become quite common. The fact is, we all do it every day!

You may think you don't know how to visualize, but stop and think for a minute. 

If I ask you to imagine a big Red Apple, what do you do? By seeing with your mind's eye, you reproduce a mental image of a big, red apple, don't you? THAT'S why we call it imagination

We use this ability every day, when we remember the route to work or visit a familiar restaurant or imagine a big red apple (as you just did).

Actually we don't see with just our eyes - we see with our brains, too.

Why is visual thinking and graphic representation so important for a Visionary?

One reason is their Suggestive Power

Visualization and other techniques for creating mental pictures are being used in the fields of medicine. Patients of all ages and walks of life have been taught to use their imaginations for:

  • managing pain

  • dealing with life-threatening or chronic disease. Cancer patients are guided in mental "Pac-Man" games in which they visualize the cancer cells being gobbled up

  • losing weight (see my book: "Lighten Up Your Body - Lighten Up Your Life")

Visioning is rooted in the idea that you can design your own life, that it is within your own power to:

  • take charge of your own imagination

  • become a purposeful dreamer

  • design the life of your dreams

  • Vision your dream into reality

Visioning begins by naming your heart's desire and translating it into pictures and words on paper

It is the same process designers, architects, and engineers use when they get an idea and create sketches, models, and blueprints.

THEY know the alchemy of turning thoughts into things!

There's nothing mysterious about it!

It's the process know as DESIGN. AND you can learn it too, by designing from your heart's desires

So...  How can I use this in my life?

Dr. Lucia shows you how to use Visioning in Action in your:

  • Work and career - dealing with problems on the job, job changes and career transitions

  • Relationships - finding love in all the right places

  • Health & Wellness - the Creative self-diet, self-worth and the pursuit of happiness

  • Find your true home - a home for the heart

Ok, I think I'm getting it... BUT Name me JUST ONE Dreamer that really did all this!!!

How about Walt Disney?... "If you can dream it, you can do it" was his maxim. Walt once dreamed of storytelling in a real 3-dimensional place, a place parents could take their kids and ALL have a good time.

And out of his dream - Disneyland and the Disney empire was created.

But what are the principles and steps that dreamers and designers, such as Walt Disney, use to bring their dreams into physical reality?

  • Visioning follows the same rules that inspire professional designers and shows how  YOU  can use them in in YOUR life, everyday - To DESIGN the Life of Your Dreams.

  • Visioning sparks "the designer within you" and makes real the notion that if you can dream it, you can do it.

  • The ten steps of Visioning are a road map to the creative process, applied to your health, relationships, career, home, and all the other areas of your life.

  • You will learn how to apply her blueprint to your life, from making a wish through the  "creative chaos" to realizing your personal goals and dreams.

  • With easy-to-follow and playful, activities and time-tested techniques,  you will effectively grasp how to take Your Wish, then visualize that wish into your life in a tangible and effective form!

Filled with success stories of her students who have already used this process... one student "visioned", then achieved her dream ranch...

Now, is the time to add your success story... isn't it??? 


If you are ready to take your dreams out of your head and see them in physical reality then NOW is the time to do it.

Spark "the designer within you"...  Put Walt Disney's notion that "if you can dream it, you can do it" into your life.
