“When you visualize, then you materialize. If you’ve been there in the mind, you’ll go there in the body.” – Dr. Dennis Waitley
If you want to manifest your dreams, visualization is key. If your mind is a map, telling the Universe where you want to go, visualization is how you set the coordinates.
One of the most powerful tools you can use to help you visualize your desires is a vision board. Beyonce, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey, and Katy Perry are just a few of the celebrities who swear by the power of vision board manifestation.
All types of manifestation methods can benefit from vision boards, which is the best thing about them
This guide will teach you how you can follow in their footsteps. We will walk you through the process of creating your own vision board step-by-step. With each image you add to your board, you will be taking a step closer to your goals.
What is a Vision Board, and What Can It Include?
A vision board is a visual display that you make to express your desires. Usually, it is a literal board, like a bulletin board or poster board that you cover with pictures and words. But you can also make a digital collage if you do not have anywhere to put a physical board.
The pictures and words can come from anywhere. You can download images online to print out, or you can cut out pictures from books, magazines or catalogs. You can even create custom works of art to add to your display.
Why Vision Boards Work?
A well-designed vision board is one of the most powerful manifestation tools you can create.
When you make a vision board, you are pulling what you desire toward you using the Law of Attraction.
This law tells us that when we focus on what we want, we are attracting it. As you choose images for your vision board, arrange them, and look at them each day, you are generating intense focus.
You also need faith for manifestation to work because of the Law of Correspondence. Our outer worlds mirror our inner worlds through this law. If you feel doubt, the Universe will do just what you expect and offer you nothing. But if you believe in yourself, you can move mountains.
Thankfully, it is not too hard to cultivate that faith. All you need to do is remember that universal laws are universal. The Law of Attraction has to work, and so does your vision board.
Think of your desire as a beam of light, and your vision board as a magnifying glass. Each image you place on the board helps you to focus that beam of light tighter and tighter. Soon, it will be bright and hot enough to burn a hole through the limitations that are holding you back.
Once it does, you will have a direct conduit of light connecting you with your desired reality. Each day you interact with your board, you take another step along that luminous pathway.
How to Make a Vision Board for Manifestation (Step-by-Step Guide)
Building a vision board is an easy, fun, creative process. Below, we teach you the steps to make yours as powerful as possible.
1. Decide what you want, and visualize it in your mind.
The first step is to know your desire inside and out. Do not just put it into words. Close your eyes and see it as clearly as possible.
Say, for example, that your lifelong dream is to visit Norway. Do not just think, “I want to go to Norway.” Imagine every moment of your perfect trip—where you will go, what you will see, and how you will get there.
Picture yourself in the locations you want to visit most. Invite all of your senses to participate.
Now, you know exactly what you want to manifest, and you can proceed to the next step.
2. Collect images and text that embody what you want.
Start gathering images that capture the experience you crave. You can deliberately hunt down pictures, or you can just save them as you come across them.
Now, here is where that visualization work you did comes into play. Try and choose images that not only feature the shape of the life you want, but also the tone of that life.
Maybe you imagined visiting the Lofoten Islands in Norway on a calm night under the northern lights. Choose images that capture that exact experience, rather than any random pictures of Lofoten. They should invoke some of the same emotions you felt during your visualization exercises.
Once you have your images on your board (see the next step), it should feel like you are looking through a window into your ideal future each time you look at your board.
3. Place the images you collect on your board.
Once you have enough images for a collage, you can attach them to your board. Double-stick tape, glue, or push-pins all work fine.
You can arrange the images in any fashion that feels right to you. You could put them neatly in rows, or you could arrange them more freely. They can be close together or farther apart.
What is most important about the arrangement is just that it speaks to you. When you look at your vision board, it should lift you up and ignite inspiration in your soul.
4. Put your vision board somewhere you will interact with it every day.
The best place for a vision board is somewhere you will see it at least once a day. A couple of prime locations include your office or your bedroom. If you want to keep your board private, you could put it on the wall inside a closet.
5. Focus on your vision board often, and let it motivate and empower you.
Take time each day to enjoy the images you have collected. As you do, focus on how they make you feel. Imagine that the life your board depicts is right here, right now, in your present. Hold onto that feeling as you take concrete steps to make it happen.
FAQ about Vision Board Manifestations
Q: Can a vision board include more than one goal?
A: It is up to you how many goals you would like to include on your board. Some people find it easiest to focus on just one desire at a time. Others may prefer to include multiple goals, especially if they are all interrelated.
Q: What do you do with a vision board after you manifest your goals?
A: This also is entirely up to you. You might remove the images and replace them, reusing the same board for a different goal.
Alternately, you might just keep a few of the images on the board to remind you that you achieved your goal, and open up the rest of the board for images for your next manifestation.
You also could save each vision board you make if you have space. If there is room on your walls, you could keep them on display.
If not, you could store them and pull them out now and again to look back on your successful journeys. You could then start a brand new vision board for each of your future manifestations.
