What is a Vision Board?

Vision boards or dream boards are one of the most relevant tools for visualization. They contain inspiring images turned into a collage. In these collages, you can visualize what you want your future to be like.  It represents where you are going. Here, you can see your goals, dreams, and ideal future life.

A vision board is where you will create your collage of images and words. It can be made of any type of board as long as it symbolizes your goals and dreams. You could either use a poster board or a cork or you could purchase a board from a professional supplier. When you put all the images of your goals in one place, you can easily visualize them. Don’t forget to look at them each day and imagine that you have accomplished them.

How to Create a Vision Board?

Just like a vision book, the vision board also describes the future that you want to create. Here are six steps in making empowering vision boards.

Make a list of the goals that you want to accomplish in the coming year.

First of all, you cannot visualize your goals, if you do not even know what they are. You need to spend some time in realizing what your ideal life would be. Additionally, you need to determine what are the things that you can do in the next twelve months so you can get closer to your goals. You could also use the meditation technique for clarity and inspiration.

Gather a bunch of magazines that contain beautiful pictures.

If you don’t have any magazines at home, then you could ask your friends or neighbors for any magazines that they no longer need. Or you could visit your local thrift store and buy some. You can purchase each magazine for a dollar or two. Do you have a local recycling depot in your area? If you have, then you can just pick the magazines that you want for free.

Look for pictures that symbolize your goals.

Allocate some hours in the evening or in the weekend and go through each magazine carefully. If you can see pictures that symbolize your goals, then cut them out. Be sure it is something that is very meaningful to you. When cutting out your images, you could listen to some music to get you inspired in visualizing your goals!

When searching for images, look for something that can make you quickly say that “This is it! This is what I want in my life!” It does not necessarily have to be pictures of physical objects or the literal meaning of your goals in life. Rather, you should concentrate on how these pictures can actually make you feel.

For instance, if your goal is to live in a home with waterfront, then don’t worry if you can’t find an image of your ideal home. Maybe you could choose an image of a beautiful ocean sunset instead. This will be enough to give you some inspiration. If your goal is to attract a new partner in life, then rather than searching for a picture of your ideal man or woman, you could find an image that symbolizes love. For instance, it could be a picture of a couple holding hands or a simple image of a heart should be enough.

Create a collage using all the pictures that you have gathered.

If you think that all the photos that you have gathered are already enough, then you can start making your vision board. You need to purchase a large construction paper or poster paper before you can start. Although, a corkboard or any large paper can also be used. You also need a tack, tape, or glue in affixing the pictures into the board. Arrange the pictures in such a way that it looks pleasing to you.

Include some affirmation words that express how you want to feel.

Your vision board should not only include the things that you want so much. Instead, it should also include how you want to feel. You could add some words that describe how you want to feel each day. These inspiring words could be healthy, powerful, joyful, loving, loved, abundant, fearless, strong, and financially free.

Spend some time in creating a list of words that illustrate how you want to feel. You could write the words yourself or look for them on the internet. In adding these words to your vision board, be sure to do it in an attractive way.

Take a moment each day, examining your vision board.

It is essential that your vision board must be placed in an area where you can see it each day. Be sure to spend a few minutes in looking at your vision board, perhaps once or twice a day. You could evaluate your vision board prior to doing your guided visualization. In this way, your goals are still fresh on your mind as you attract what you exactly want into your life.

It is also ideal to examine it each night before going to bed. Doing this can inspire your subconscious mind to discover new concepts on how you are going to accomplish your goals. So, when you wake up in the morning, you will be loaded with the inspiration to succeed. Once you notice your vision board constantly, you will take some actions to bring you closer to accomplishing your goals.
