Dreamboard for the Full Corn Moon

Creating this board took more time than I had planned, but this was completely okay  as I needed to slow down anyway. As usual I had cut out too many images so there are many that didn’t make the board. In the end, I really enjoy letting my eyes fall on this board. I’m not too sure what much of it means right now, but it feels so juicy and oozes with sweet possibility.

I find this board really beautiful, and also magical and mysterious. The first things I notice about my board are the gorgeous reds on the board and the blue expanse of water. As to the empty costumes on the left and right of the board, I can’t tell whether it is before of after their wearer. Are the clothes waiting, or are they reminders of something past? Both natural and man-made beauty are here, but it feels like always the inspiration is in nature. I might need to put on the red hood and venture out into the woods, perhaps even encounter the wolf. Red is the color of energy and passion, and I feel a renewed pull toward one of my favorite colors of the past.

I think this board is asking me to consider and use gorgeous gifts from the universe, to honor them by celebrating their beauty and noticing – tuning into the wisdom of spirit, at one with the messages of water, earth, sky and fire. I think my board is telling me: Notice and celebrate. Dance and be free.
  • My dreamboard is expressing my yearning for the open road, nature and adventure
  • I need to notice beauty, and take in the gorgeousness of this world
  • I want to find the inner truth of my life and turn it into my life's work
  • I think my guide on this board might be the mother earth dancer on the island. She is a giant who works with the power of the earth and water and sky to create beauty.
  • But also, I think the elephant is a strong guide as well. Today I was delighted to notice a subway poetry poster with two swimming elephants on it. I wonder what all these elephants are trying to tell me.
I've been making dreamboards pretty regularly since mid-2009, when I discovered Jamie Ridler's blog and became interested in creating a dreamboard for myself. Check out Jamie Ridler's Full Moon Dreamboards Online to learn more about it. Also, you can see what others are dreaming for themselves for this full moon here.


  1. Wow! What a gift you are! Thank you Helen! Very inspiring...I used to view dreamboards just as tools for manifestation, but your beautiful dreamboard and your process are reminding me to enjoy the creative making process, the quesions, the journey itself, not to just focus on the end goal...:-)! Thanks and Hugs, Joelle. PS: How did you get the images into a digital collage? What program are you using? My dreamboards have been manual so far.

    1. Thanks for your comments, Joelle! I use a manual process, assembling the board from pictures cut out from magazines. It's only when I take a picture of it that it becomes digital. I also like to turn this into my screensaver and wallpaper on the computer, so I'm exposed to my dreamboard even more often. :)

  2. Hi Helen, it is so lovely to touch base with you again here in dream-board world! My boards go back a couple of years with Jamie too! I have come a long way here in blog-sphere since those days, had a lot of very positive experiences.

    Like you I think my board is expressing the yearn for the 'open road'. Your board is indeed vibrant and beautiful, you could muse every image and extract a story from this would be a long post! ;~)

    Speak to you at the next dream-board rendezvous! x

  3. How I Love this! Another inspiring photo :)
