Creating a vision board is a simple yet powerful way to express your desire to experience the best life, abundance and opportunities you deserve. Making a vision board is a fun, tangible, and impactful way to affirm your dreams and desires and bring them to life—no matter how many you have made before.
The Power of a Vision Board
With the publication of The Secret in 2006, vision boards have become increasingly popular. A vision board is a collage of visual images or words that demonstrate the life you are striving to achieve, such as a dream board. It represents your dreams and hopes, which you can create by hand with magazine cutouts on a corkboard or digitally on a website like Pinterest. The most important part of creating a vision board is that it comes from you and motivates you when you see it. It could focus on one particular area of your life, such as your career or your whole life.
It Works Every Time!
It is similar to getting a new car and noticing that particular make and model more often in your everyday life. These cars were there before, but you saw them when you focused on something specific. Similarly, if you pay attention to the images on your vision board, like pictures of your dream trip, the energy of those goals and dreams will more likely be in your awareness. When you continue to concentrate on the items you want to manifest, what once seemed like an unrealistic goal can become your reality. However, remember that the Universe responds to both the positive and the negative—so if you look for reasons to have a bad day, you will continue to attract these annoyances into your life. Therefore, it is essential to focus on what you want and be mindful of how you spend your time and energy.
Follow the steps below to create your effective vision board
Step 1: Become Clear on Your Vision
Meditate, daydream, or journal about everything you wish to be, do or have. Consider all aspects of your life, including your ideal career, relationship, house, car, community, body, etc. Be as specific as you can when creating your vision board. This way, you can be in a positive and productive state of mind when assembling your dream board. To make your experience even more enjoyable, consider setting the mood by lighting candles and playing uplifting music.
Step 2: Gather Your Inspiring Images
Surf online for images and words that call to you and make you feel empowered, and remember to print and cut them out. It is vital to remember that everything you select to feature on your vision board should reflect what you WANT rather than the opposite. You may find it easier to search online for something specific, like a pile of money representing abundance, and then print it out. You will need a corkboard, poster board, several pieces of paper, scissors, and glue or tape to create your visualisation board. Alternatively, if you are not crafty, consider making a digital vision board on a platform like Pinterest or another social media site.
Step 3: Check-In With It Regularly
It is important to place your vision board in a spot you will encounter daily to remind yourself of your aspirations and motivate you to reach your goals. Please don’t force yourself to stare at it all day, but make sure that it is in view so that it can have an impact. On the other hand, putting it in an area where you can’t see it, such as under your bed, will likely slip your mind. Therefore, it is important to keep your vision board in the front of your mind, focus on it, and you are certain to observe real results.
Step 4: The Universe Will Amaze You
Once you have articulated your vision and crafted your Vision Board, your role is to frequently look at it and trust that the Universe will give you the possibilities to bring every desire to fruition. Keep these images in your thoughts regularly, and agree to any changes that appear that could help make your dreams come true. When you receive new ideas and inspirations, feel free to add them to your Vision Board whenever you wish.
Your Vision Board is a mutable and adjustable representation of your desires as they evolve and transform. It’s suggested that you create an entirely new Vision Board every 6 to 12 months to ensure it’s up-to-date, inspiring, and synchronised with your values and priorities.
So get started! Your Vision Board doesn’t need to be flawless and can be a continuous project. Each person’s Vision Board will be distinct and unique, so avoid comparing it to others or being overly critical. Have fun, remain open and ready, and see what happens! The Universe may astound you.
