A Vision board is a visual representation of what you wish to create in your life. It’s a fun and creative way to connect deeply with your innermost self and put out to the Universe your heart’s desires. Everybody is born with a unique set of skills, values, and sense of purpose. How often do you ask yourself: What is it that I want for my life? What brings me alive? What matters to me most? Creating a Vision board is a powerful way to gain clarity on your goals and ignite the process of making them a reality.
A Vision board can be made alone or with a group of friends. Start by setting aside magazines, catalogs and newspaper. Begin by going through what you have collected and cut out images and words that fit your Vision. Once you have accumulated a nice supply of what you need, begin pasting the images on your board.
Now, you may not have a clear Vision for yourself. That’s fine, too. Vision boarding can be a tool to uncover and discover your passion and purpose or parts of yourself that don’t always get attention. All you have to do is relax, have fun and see which words and photos you call out to you. A Vision board can be comprised of anything! From painting a picture, to a new career or a house by the sea- everything and anything can go on your board!
If you choose to do your Vision board alone, good for you! With focus and commitment, you can begin by making a list of small actions you can immediately begin to take to manifest something on your board. Display your board somewhere where you can see it daily as a visual reminder of what you are creating for yourself.
If you decide to create your Vision board with a group this can be a powerful and transformative experience. When you externalize your Vision and share with others what you truly want, you are one step closer to making those things a reality. Another powerful element of doing a Vision board with others is the process of bearing witness to another person’s goals and aspirations.
This allows everyone in the group to hold the intention for that person and offer support and appreciation for what that individual wishes to create in his or her life. All of this is part of the process of turning a Vision into a reality.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will.”
George Bernard Shaw
Once you have your Vision board, you have a tool to make your goals more tangible and attract what you desire for your life. To see a visual representation of your most fulfilling life daily, motivates and encourages you to take the steps needed towards making those things a reality.
