A vision board is simply a visual representation or collage of the things that you want to have, be, or do in your life. It consists of a poster or foam board with cut-out pictures, drawings and/or writing on it of the things that you want in your life or the things that you want to become. The purpose of a vision board is to activate the law of attraction to begin to pull things from your external environment that will enable you to realize your dream. By selecting pictures and writing that charges your emotions with feelings of passion, you will begin to manifest those things into your life. The image below is just an example (not mine) of what your board should somewhat look like.
A vision board is a simple yet powerful visualization tool that activates the universal law of attraction to begin manifesting your dreams into reality. The concept of the vision board (also known as a goal board, goal map, or treasure map) has been around for generations. To understand more about the Law of Attraction, I recommend renting/buying/downloading the movie "The Secret". When I first saw this trailer on Youtube, I had to see the rest of the movie!
TIPS & TOOLS ON CREATING A VISION BOARD
- Cork board, poster board, or stretched canvas (Get the biggest board you can get! The more goal images you can put on the board, the better!)
- Find images (make sure they are in colour!) from old magazines in different genres - or the easiest and efficient way (what I do) is to go to Google Images http://www.google.ca/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi Save the images and paste a bunch of them onto a document using a program like Microsoft Word or Publisher. Print them out on your colour printer or if you don't have a colour printer, print them out at a copy centre like Staples. You can conveniently send your saved document(s) over online at http://www.staplescopyandprint.ca/
- Have fun with the process! The more positive energy associated with the board, the faster the goals on it can be manifested.
- Don’t worry and stress over how the goals will be accomplished. When the vision board is created, there may not be a clear path towards achieving them.
The Law of Attraction states that whatever you think and speak about will be attracted into your life. By focusing energy on positive goals and changes, they can be manifested. Vision boards are an inexpensive, yet effective way to help clarify and focus goals. For anyone who is looking to take their life in a new direction or actually achieve their New Years resolutions, this technique can help clarify what is truly important to them and focus their energy on it.
Take your passion and make it happen!
