“Action that is inspired from aligned thoughts is joyful action.”
– Abraham Hicks
A vision board manifestation exercise for you.
Creating a vision board is a powerful way to create the life of your dreams. It’s a visual representation of your goals and dreams, and can help you focus your attention and energy on what you want to achieve.
By creating a vision board and placing it in a prominent place, you can remind yourself daily of what you are working towards and take inspired action towards manifesting your wishes. In this article, I will walk you through the steps to creating a vision board that works for you.
Manifestation is the process of bringing your desired outcomes or goals into reality. It is often associated with the idea of the “law of attraction,” which suggests that you can attract positive events and experiences into your life through the power of your thoughts and feelings. However, manifestation is not just a “whoo-whoo” concept; it is based on the science of how our minds work.
Our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality, and the way we think about ourselves and the world around us can either limit or empower us. When we focus our attention and energy on a specific outcome, we are more likely to take actions that align with that outcome and bring it into being. This is because our brains are wired to seek out and create patterns that confirm our beliefs and expectations.
So, when we create a vision board and focus on it daily, we are conditioning our minds to believe that our desired outcomes are possible and within reach. This can help us stay motivated and take inspired action towards manifesting our wishes.
It’s important to note that manifestation is not a quick or easy process. It requires patience, persistence, and consistent effort. However, with a positive mindset and a clear vision of what you want to achieve, you can use the power of manifestation to bring your goals and dreams to life.
A vision board is typically created using a large piece of paper or poster board, and can include pictures, words, quotes, and other elements that inspire you or represent your desired outcomes. Vision boards can be focused on any area of your life, such as career, relationships, health, personal growth, or a combination of these things.
There is no one “right” way to create a vision board. You can use a variety of materials and techniques to make it your own. Some people like to use magazines and cut out pictures that represent their goals, while others prefer to draw or write out their wishes. You can also add personal mementos or symbols that have meaning to you. The key is to make your vision board meaningful and inspiring to you, and to display it somewhere where you will see it regularly.
Creating a vision board can be a fun and creative process, a couple of friends and I had great fun doing this with a pile of magazines, craft materials and colourful pens one evening.
It’s important not to confuse a vision board with a mood board, as they serve different purposes. A vision board is focused on your goals and what you want to achieve, while a mood board, on the other hand, is primarily used for inspiration and creativity. For example, designing a room, creating a product, or developing a marketing campaign. It can help you capture the essence of a particular style, theme, or concept, and can serve as a reference when making creative decisions.
Does a vision board work?
Visualisation, or the practice of creating mental images to achieve a desired outcome, has been widely studied and has been found to be a powerful tool for athletes, helping them to improve performance, build confidence, and achieve their goals.
“Mental imagery, or visualization, is a commonly used performance enhancement technique in athletics. Studies have found that mental imagery can improve athletic performance by increasing self-confidence, reducing anxiety, and improving technique.” – Psychology Today
How to create your vision board:
1. Gather materials: You will need a large piece of paper or poster board, scissors, glue or tape, and any drawings, words, or quotes that inspire you or represent your wishes for the year.
2. Reflect on your wishes: Take some time to sit quietly and think about what you truly want for yourself in the coming month, months, year or years (be specific about your timeline). These can be big or small wishes and can relate to any area of your life (e.g., career, relationships, health, personal growth). Write down your wishes on a piece of paper.
3. Guided visualization: Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Imagine stepping into your best self; what do you look like/feel like? Who are you being? What are you doing? What do you have in your life? Spend a few minutes visualizing this person in as much detail as possible.
4. Find visual representations: Look through your materials and find drawings, words, or quotes that represent each of your wishes. Cut out these elements and set them aside.
5. Arrange your vision board: Lay out your large piece of paper or poster board and start arranging your images and words on it. Consider the layout and composition, and use glue or tape to attach the elements to the board.
6. Add any other elements: You can also add other elements to your vision board, such as personal mementos or symbols that resonate with you.
7. Display your vision board: Hang your vision board somewhere where you will see it every day, such as on your bedroom wall or in your office.
8. Take inspired action: While your vision board can serve as a powerful manifestation tool, it is also important to take inspired action towards your wishes. This might involve setting goals, making a plan, or taking small steps towards your desired outcomes.
Remember to approach this exercise with a positive and open mind, and have fun with it! The more fun and enjoyment you have while creating your vision board, the more powerful it will be in helping you manifest your wishes
It is important to remember that your vision board is not a static tool. As you progress on your journey and your goals evolve, you may find that you want to add or remove elements from your vision board. This is completely normal and can actually help to keep your vision board fresh and relevant.
If you come across a picture, quote, or other elements that inspires you or resonates with your goals, don’t be afraid to add it to your vision board. And if you find that an element no longer aligns with your vision, feel free to remove it. Your vision board is a living, dynamic representation of your goals and aspirations, and it is meant to evolve and change as you do.
So, be sure to keep updating and adding to your vision board as you are drawn to new things and feel inspired. This will help you stay focused on your goals and stay motivated as you work towards manifesting your desires.
