At the time of writing this blog, we are about to start a new year. So, as you can imagine, creating vision boards is a hot topic. The new year is a great opportunity to design the life we want to live and re-invent ourselves. A vision board helps us to remember our goals and values. However, the actual process of creating the boards, and deciding what to put on them, can be a bit of a minefield in itself! Where do we begin? Here are my top tips for making the job easier.
#1 - It's all about the feeling
As I’m sure you know by now, the law of attraction works on feeling abundant. The more you feel as if you a living in alignment with your higher self, the more blessings you will attract.
For example, say you want to attract more money into your life. You need to find images of happy, abundant people that you can align with. Maybe they are driving an expensive car, or eating in a fancy restaurant. You automatically know they are wealthy by what they are doing, and looking at their happy faces will make you feel the same way. Contrast this with putting an image of a pile of money, or a cheque on your vision board. Just looking at money itself is unlikely to inspire the same feelings and emotions. Actually many people have negative emotions linked to money. When you look at your vision board it needs to inspire positive feelings and emotions.
#2 - Don't worry about the format
In this age of social media and technology, creating a physical vision board from magazines and photos is no longer your only option. It is possible to use sites like Pinterest and weheartit to collect your favourite online images all in one place. I personally love these sites but they aren’t for everyone.
Sometimes creating a vision board can seem an over complicated process. If you are feeling overwhelmed, go back to the format you know best. It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing. What is far more important is to actually make a start and not worry that your board maybe created differently to other people’s. It is exciting to think outside the box. Who says your board has to be online or physical, big or small, colourful or not? Some people use more words and phrases, others more pictures. It’s up to you!
#3 - Add people
Vision boards are a collection of images of things that we want to manifest into our lives. However, for the law of attraction to work, you need to be aligned with the feeling of owning whatever you want to manifest. It is a lot easier to tap into those feelings if you can see people already enjoying and owning what you desire. For example, if you would like to go on a luxury cruise, choose images of people enjoying a cruise. Just like the example of money from tip #1, a picture of a cruise ship itself is unlikely to stir much emotion in you. Having people in your pictures will inspire questions in your mind, you will think about how they feel. You will associate with their feelings. Putting people in pictures is the next best thing to putting yourself in the picture.
I have known people to cut out images of themselves and place them in different situations. Maybe this would work for you? Sadly, this doesn’t work for me as I find it a bit weird and it tends to inspire a fit of giggling rather than feelings of association. Hopefully it will work better for you!
One thing is certain, however you do it, having a clear vision and plan for the future is essential. Get started this minute by letting me know in the comments what’s going on your vision board. Remember, I believe in you. You are amazing. Have a lovely day 🙂
