This is my first time creating a vision board but as someone who absolutely believes in the law of attraction and power of positive thinking, I am surprised I haven’t created a vision board sooner! If you are new to the vision boarding process, here are some quick and helpful tips that can help you create your own vision board and start manifesting them, especially for the new year!
Reflect on your past
To be more clear with what is on your vision board, think about your past. What has shaped you? What’s made you grow? Did you have any struggles? Channel your past to shape your future. You can draw from joyous moments and hardships in your life to identify exactly what kind of life you’d like in the future.
Be clear on your intent and goals
It can be helpful to jot down on a piece of paper what long term goals you have. This way when you open up magazines and start cutting out images, you will know what to look out for.
Another method that others have used is breaking down your board into separate sections and taking an inventory of your life in different categories. For example, some categories could be health & wellness, love & relationships, work & career, etc. Think of all the areas of your life that you would like to grow in and write out your goals for each so that you can have a representative vision for each area.
When actually creating your board, you may also choose to have different boards for different areas of your life. Perhaps a work related board can be placed in your office and one more geared toward your personal life can be at home somewhere within easy view.
Meditate On It
After you create your vision board, meditate on it! Look at your board each day and really believe that these images on paper will become reality! I’m going to view my vision board each night before I sleep so that I can dream about them!
Make a Plan
Now that you have your board all set with your goals and intentions in place, now it’s time to make a plan to work toward them! Vision boards are meant for visualizing your reality but as we know, our ideal reality doesn’t happen by sitting back. I recently wrote a blog post on goal setting success that I think can go hand in hand with your vision board.
In order to vision board successfully, make sure you have all the necessary supplies.
Pen and paper (to jot down your visions beforehand)
Poster board (remember the bigger the poster board the more you will have to fill in) – Finding the right images and placing them on the board takes a lot longer than you may think
MAGAZINES – Make sure you have a lot of magazines to choose from in all different categories – fitness, travel, health, women’s lifestyle, etc.
