VISION BOARDS FOR MANISFESTATION

What do you want to manifest in your life?  Vision Boarding is a visual way to explore the heart and soul’s desires.  By vision boarding, we gain new insight and energy to manifest our dreams.

There are 3 main styles of learning: Auditory, Visual and Kinesthetic. To harness the power of manifestation, we need a combination these three. When setting intentions, we often only say them in our minds -- only thinking about what we want. Manifestation often begins here in the mind space, but in order to make our intention more real, we need to engage other senses. Joel Barker says, “Vision without action is a dream.  Action without vision is simply passing the time.  Action with vision is making a positive difference.”

In order to manifest: (1) journal about intentions; (2) pledge them aloud to others; and (3) see them with your own eyes.  Vision boards triggers our visual learning style.  They serve to funnel and focus our 60,000 daily thoughts into clear intentions for ourselves.

A vision board is a sacred space where we display what we want. When we create a vision board and place it in a space where we see it often, we essentially end up doing short visualization exercise each time we see the board.

Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. According to the popular book The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”

Visualization works!  Olympic athletes have used it for decades to improve performance, and Psychology Today reported that the brain patterns activated when a weightlifter lifts heavy weights are also similarly activated when the lifter just imagined (visualized) lifting weights.
To create a vision board that really works, focus on how you want to feel not just on things that you want. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to include the material stuff too. However, the more your board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life. There aren’t any real rules in vision boarding. Use your intuition and create your vision board on your own terms.

Basic “How To’s” In Making Your Own Vision Board

1. Collect magazines, scissors, glue, poster board, stickers, and markers.

2. Decide what kind of Vision Board this will be. Here are three key board themes:
 (a) Past, Present, Future Board - Paste pictures of where you’ve been on the outside rim.  Next, put where you are now.  In the center of the board, put where you want to go.
 (b) Single Focus Board - Decide on one key area of your life -- like Career or Relationships -- and choose pictures that support the vision you have for yourself.
(c) I Don’t Know Board - Go through magazines and simply start choosing anything that is calling to you.  Don’t edit, just allow things to happen organically.

3. Sit and meditate on the purpose of your board. Visualize it in the quiet workshop of your mind. Visioning requires concentration.

4. Go through magazines and cut out words, pictures, anything that might be a good fit for your theme.

5. Find a balance between being creative but not cluttered. If you end up with too much, it will only dilute the powerful experience of visioning.

6. Keep your Vision Board where you can see it every day, ideally first thing in the morning.

7. Bring your Vision Board on the road wherever you go by taking a photo of it and using it as your screen saver on your laptop and smartphone.

8. Show a trusted friend your Vision Board and explain what it means to you. By saying it out loud, you further reinforce the stickiness of your thoughts to keep them from being distracted.

9. Celebrate as you manifest your intentions one by one!

10. Finally, when necessary, don’t forget to make time to create another board for yourself.
