How to Create a Proper Vision Board
Why it’s important to have one: a vision board will help you to see what it is that you want the Law of Attraction to do for you. You can have a board for each area of your life or you can have a board that focuses on one area at time. Our brains take visual snapshots and hold on to what we visualize. It’s easier to keep focused on what we can see.
What you’ll need: something to attach the pictures on. Most people use a piece of poster board or a board like you see used in a child’s science fair project. Whatever you prefer is fine.
You’ll also need a way to attach the items onto your vision board. You can use tape or you can use stick glue. You might also want to get some labels for your vision board.
What many people do when creating their vision board is to take pictures of what they want the Law of Attraction to bring into their lives and attach them to their board. You can do this by going through magazines or printing images offline. Some people also use photographs that they’ve taken themselves.
You can do this and by arranging the pictures, create a beautiful collage of what you want to see happen. This might be pictures of a new home or a new vehicle or the direction you’d like to see your career take.
But what you can also do is to put up certain phrases that help you focus as well as bits of words – your own or something else’s – like quotes that help you to affirm your focus.
The look of your vision board will depend on how much or how little you want to do with your board. You can put a lot of energy into it or just have something simple that helps you to visualize what you want.
When you can see images, it helps you imagine and believe that the image can happen for you. Whatever you place on your vision board needs to be an image or words that stir you, that make your emotions come to light and make you feel happy or passionate or moved.
Some of the categories you might want on your vision board could include wealth, love and relationships, health, career or material possessions.
You can have areas of your vision board where you write on the labels and affix them to different picture in one of the categories. For example, you might want to write, “I will live in a house like this” and fix that label onto the image of a home you want to live in.
Make sure that you don’t make your vision board and then tuck it away out of sight. You want to keep it where you can see it daily.
There’s no right or wrong way to make your board. You can place the pictures in any order and they can even overlap if you want them to. You can use scrapbook supplies to add color and highlights. You can mix pictures with words you’ve cut out of a magazine or printed out.
Don’t limit what you place on your vision board. If you want something particular out of life, put it up there. While some people list a date when they created their vision board and a date when they saw their visualization become reality, don’t make the mistake of putting an expiration date.
Don’t write, “I want to live in this 4,000 square foot home by this date” because the Law of Attraction doesn’t work that way.
