A vision board is more commonly known as a wish board, manifestation board, a dream board and a vision planner. It is a collection of images put together to help you achieve your goals and make your dreams come true. The key to a powerful vision board includes images which, tell a powerful story and produce positive energy and emotions.
“As I close my eyes I start to visualise my dream holiday to the Maldives. The sun is beaming down wrapping around my body like a soothing comforter. The beautiful tall palm trees are moving from the gentle breeze that floats past from the sea. As I lay on the beach I can hear the sounds of the waves. I am relaxed, grateful and ready to make the most of my time in paradise….”
Top 5 Tips: How To Create A POWERFUL Vision Board
1. DEFINE YOUR GOAL AND COLLECT IMAGES THAT BRING YOU COMPLETE JOY
Collect positive images which bring you complete joy and tell a story about your future-self. Using the Marie Kondo Method here is perfect. Look at the picture and ask yourself, do you bring me joy? Do you make me feel happy? The images of your goals and visualising yourself achieving that goal should bring you happiness and joy.
If your goal is a holiday, collect images of the hotel, the seafront views, the beach, and the tourist attractions, which make you happy and excite you. Close your eyes, visualise yourself at the moment and say to yourself, yes! I feel relaxed as I lye on the beach. We find using this method brings out powerful positive emotions and feelings.
2. ADD POSITIVE, INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING QUOTES
Writing positive and motivating words/quotes on your vision board is great to boost self-assurance, confidence and add an extra boost of motivation. This is a great reminder of why you are trying to achieve your goal.
Powerful words on your dream holiday board might include; “Travel to as many places as I can”. With positive words like relaxation and adventure. A fitness vision board might include powerful words like healthy, strong and confident.
3. BREAK DOWN YOUR VISION BOARD INTO MICRO-GOALS
A great way to achieve your goals is to break them down into micro-goals. An example might be to see all the seven wonders of the world. But this year you will focus on visiting the Taj Mahal, just one of the seven wonders of the world.
Creating a micro vision board allows you to focus on all the smaller details. Such as the hotel you want to stay in or the attractions you want to see. Once your vision board is filled with meticulous detail it starts to tell a story. This produces powerful emotions and positive vibes. You start to feel the same way you will feel if you were experiencing your dream right now.
Other great ideas for micro vision boards are; holiday destinations, health and fitness, a promotion at work to name a few. Let us know other great ideas for vision boards in the comments.
4. PLACE YOUR VISION BOARD WHERE YOU CAN ALWAYS SEE IT
In your office, bedroom, lounge or take a photo and use it as a wallpaper on your phone. This way you can look at your vision board at least every morning, every evening and throughout the day. When you look at your vision board visualise yourself doing the things on your board. Think about how you feel and talk about your visions to yourself. Talk about how you feel, what you want to do and see etc. If you feel down or you lose your focus, look at your vision board, let it help you visualise your outcome, your dreams and let it help you get back on track with positive vibes.
5. HAVE FAITH
To have faith in yourself and your journey is powerful. It is a great reminder to be patient as things always work out. When you feel down or things don’t go to plan take a moment to look at your vision board. Use it as a reminder to have faith in yourself and your journey.
You are powerful and we believe using our 5 tips is a great start in manifesting how you want your future. Remember, to make the vision board powerful the images must produce powerful and positive emotions.
Life is always about having fun. Enjoy the process, enjoy the journey and have an amazing time creating your vision board.
With gratitude always
