What Is A Vision Board?
A vision board is a visual representation of your goals, dreams, and desires – something you can look at and constantly empower with more visualizations each day.
It’s a board or digital layout made of a collage of:
These elements are chosen to attract into your life specific:
It’s literally all of the parts you need for a spell, but you don’t have to hide your magical side!
What Is The Purpose Of A Vision Board?
The purpose of a vision board is to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation and to utilize the law of attraction which states that focusing on positive or negative thoughts brings positive or negative experiences into one’s life.
By surrounding yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, and where you want to live or travel, your life can change to match those desires.
The underlying idea is that when you see your board regularly, you’re both consciously and subconsciously motivated to take steps toward your goals. This can help guide your actions, harness your focus, and promote a positive outlook. The process of creating the board itself can also be a clarifying exercise, helping you to narrow down your desires and understand what you truly want to pursue.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create a vision board:
Step 1: Set Your Intention
Before you start, think about what you want to achieve or manifest in your life.
Consider areas such as career, relationships, health, personal growth, travel, or spirituality.
Step 2: Gather Your Supplies
You will need:
- A board: This could be a corkboard, poster board, or even a digital platform (like Pinterest, just make sure you look at it every day).
- Magazines, printed images, or photographs.
- Scissors and glue sticks (if you’re doing a physical board).
- Markers, stickers, or any other decorative items you’d like to use.
- Pushpins or tape (for corkboards).
If you’re extra witchy, like us, you can make your entire vision board creation experience more like a spell. Decorate your art space with items that resonate with your intention, such as candles with spell intent, crystals that match your intent, and incense that elevates the vibration of your items and sacred space.
You may also choose to cleanse your items and art supplies with herb bundles beforehand!
Step 3: Find Your Inspiration
Look for images, words, quotes, or anything else that resonates with your goals and intentions.
Cut out or save these items to use on your board.
Step 4: Organize Your Vision Board
Lay out your images and words on your board without gluing or pinning anything down yet.
Arrange them in a way that feels visually pleasing to you.
Step 5: Assemble Your Vision Board
Once you’re happy with the layout, start adhering everything to your board.
If you’re using a digital board, this is where you’d start placing your items on your digital canvas.
Step 6: Embellish
Add any extra decorative elements to give your vision board some personality.
This can also help to visually emphasize certain goals or intentions.
Step 7: Find The Right Spot For Your Vision Board
Place your vision board somewhere you will see it often.
For physical boards, this might be near your desk, on your bedroom wall, or in your workspace.
For digital boards, you might set it as your desktop wallpaper or as a regular reminder.
Step 8: Use Your Vision Board
A vision board is not only a reminder of your goals but also a tool to use for visualization.
Spend some time each day looking at your board, imagining as if you have already achieved what’s depicted.
Step 9: Update Your Vision Board As Needed
As time passes, your goals and aspirations might change, and that’s okay.
Update your vision board to reflect your current desires and intentions.
Step 10: Reflect And Act
Regularly reflect on your vision board and consider the actions you need to take to realize your dreams. A vision board is a motivational tool, but achieving your goals will always require active effort.
Creating a vision board is a personal and creative process.
There’s no right or wrong way to do it, so feel free to use whatever process and materials that inspire you the most. The most important part is that it resonates with you and inspires you to take action towards your dreams.
