What are your dreams and goals for this year ahead? Have you heard of a visons board or the law of attraction?
A vision board is a visualization tool that refers to a board of any sort used to build a collage of words and pictures that represent your goals and dreams.
By placing visual representations of your goals into one space, you can easily visualize them frequently. Remembering to look at them daily and imagine them as if they have already come true is one of the best ways to activate the Law of Attraction.
How Do You Use a Vision Board for Goal-Setting?
The best way to achieve your goals is to keep them top of mind, so you’re always looking for ways to move closer to them – and a vision board is a perfect tool to help you do that.
By adding a visualization practice to your daily routine, you will naturally become more motivated to reach your goals.
You’ll start to notice you are unexpectedly doing things that move you closer to your ideal life. Suddenly, you find yourself volunteering to take on more responsibility at work, speaking out at staff meetings, asking more directly for what you want, and taking more risks in your personal and professional life – and experiencing bigger pay-offs.
How to Create a Vision Board in 6 Steps that Depicts the Future You Wish to Create
1) Create a list of goals you’d like to achieve in the next year. In order to visualize your goals, first, you need to know what they are. Spend some time getting clear on exactly what you want your ideal life to look like, and what you need to accomplish in the next 12 months to launch you closer to your goals.
2) Find some old magazines with pictures. If you’re not a magazine reader or currently don’t have any magazines at home, ask your friends to give you any they no longer want. You should also be able to pick some up for a rand or 2 at a second-hand store or charity store. Or you can find some images on Pinterest and print these.
3) Find pictures that represent your goals and inspire you. Schedule a couple of hours one evening or weekend to go through the magazines and cut out pictures that represent your goals and speak to your heart in some meaningful way. When looking for images in the magazines, look for those that immediately make you say, “Yes! That is what I want in my life!” They don’t have to be physical objects or literal interpretations of what you want in your life. Instead, focus on how the images make you FEEL.
4) Make a collage out of your pictures and words. Once you have collected enough pictures, it’s time to make your vision board! Go to your local craft store and buy a large piece of construction or poster paper. A corkboard or large piece of paper would work as well. Then glue, tack, or tape your pictures to the paper or corkboard in an arrangement that is visually pleasing to you.
5) Add motivational “affirmation words” that represent how you want to FEEL. Your vision of your ideal life shouldn’t be focused on “stuff” so much as on how you want to FEEL. For this reason, I like to add words to my vision board that describes how I want to feel on a daily basis – such as: “joyful,” “abundant,” “powerful,” “fearless,” “loved,” “strong,” “healthy,” “loving,” and “financially free.” Take some time to create a list of words that describe how YOU want to feel. You can either search for these words in your magazines or write them yourself. Then add them to your vision board in a visually attractive way.
6) Take a few moments to contemplate your vision board every day. To get the full benefit from your vision board, it’s important for you to place it somewhere you can see it every day. We recommend you take a few minutes to look over your vision board in the morning and evening. This way, when you review it every night before you go to sleep, in order to prompt your subconscious mind to come up with new ideas while you’re sleeping on how to achieve your goals. That way, you wake up in the morning bursting with motivation to succeed – and are far more likely to notice and act on opportunities that will bring you closer to your goals.
How to Use Your Vision Board
Try keeping your vision board on the nightstand next to your bed. Leave it standing in an open position as often as you are comfortable with, and spend time each morning and evening visualizing, affirming, believing, and internalizing your goals.
The time you spend visualizing in the evening just before bed is especially powerful. The thoughts and images that are present in your mind during the last forty-five minutes before going to sleep are the ones that will replay themselves repeatedly in your subconscious mind throughout the night, and the thoughts and images that you begin each day with will help you to create a vibrational match for the future you desire.
As some time goes by, and your dreams begin to manifest, look at those images that represent your achievements, and feel gratitude for how well the Law of Attraction is working in your life.
Acknowledge that it is working. Don’t remove the pictures or images that represent the goals you’ve already achieved. Achievement of the goals in your vision board are powerful visual reminders of what you have already consciously and deliberately attracted into your life.
Write down the date you created your dream board.
The universe loves speed, and you will be amazed at just how quickly the Law of Attraction responds to your energy, commitment, and desires.
Much like a time capsule, this board will document your personal journey, your dreams, and your achievements for that particular year. It will become a record of your growth, awareness, and expansion that you will want to keep and reflect back upon in years to come.
Look at your vision board often and feel the inspiration it provides.
Hold it in your hands and really internalize the future it represents.
Read your daily affirmations and inspirational words aloud.
See yourself living in that manner.
Feel yourself in the future you have designed.
Believe it is already yours.
Be grateful for the good that is already present in your life.
Acknowledge any goals you have already achieved.
Acknowledge the changes you have seen and felt.
Acknowledge the presence of God in your life.
Acknowledge the Law of Attraction at work in your life.
Look at it just before going to bed and first thing upon rising.
