Vision boards are a great way to keep yourself focused and directed towards a purpose while nurturing your creative side. Some of the world's most famous authors, success coaches and wellness experts recommend the use of goal setting through vision boards! Here is an easy way to make an inspiring vision board and start working toward your goals today.
Make your intentions clear
It is important to identify what your goal and intention are first; that is, what do you want to achieve and how do you see yourself getting there? What kind of feelings do you expect to encounter along the way, and how will you feel when you have accomplished it? Be sure of what you want and write it down.
Collect the required supplies
Many of the supplies you need for your vision board you may already have around the house!
Blank art book or Poster-board
Glue or pins
Markers, pens or paints
Colorful or plain paper
Magazines, newspapers and books that can be cut up
If you don't have magazines to take pictures from, you can search the internet for some inspiring words and images and print them out!
Create space and an ambient environment
It is important to create a comfortable and inspiring space to make your board. You want to be able to spread out and see everything that you have, like on the floor or a big table. You can also create an ambient environment by playing some of your favorite music and lighting some candles to relax and tap into your positive energies.
Choose your images and words wisely
Use words and images that speak to you, align with your intentions and will help motivate you toward your goals. You can cut out the images from magazines and newspapers, print them from the internet and use some of your own photos. All of them should be appealing to you and specifically embody the vision you have for yourself.
Make it stick
Paste or pin the images and words you chosen on your vision board in a way that reflects your feelings and intentions. Before pasting them try to arrange them in the way that you want, and then attach them. Remember, only use images and words that have a positive impact on your feelings and make you feel motivated towards your goals.
Place your vision board where you can see it often
Your vision board should serve as a regular reminder for you, so you should place or hang it somewhere visible where you can easily connect to it on a regular basis. Perhaps your bedroom or bathroom mirror, in your kitchen or hung on a wall that you see several times a day.
Notice and heal
Take notice of your feelings when you look at your vision board and think about working toward reaching your goals. Be mindful of any resistance or negative feelings; work to find the underlying reasons for this apprehension and resolve them as you journey toward your goal. Self awareness, healing and personal growth are crucial in manifesting your vision.
