I’m a visual person and I’m also someone who believes in manifestation whether it’s conscious or subconscious. There are things that have come to fruition in my life that I have visualised and dreamed about and also feared…
I am incredibly passionate about Vision Boards. I like to have a board of some sort where I can pin up things that I can look at every day. You may prefer to create something online in the form of a Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com.au/login/ board so that you can scroll through your inspiration on the daily/or you may choose to do both!
It doesn’t have to cost the world and it also doesn’t have to be perfect! Most of my images I print from Pinterest. I’ll copy and paste them into a word document and then print them all out so I can adjust the sizes of the images depending on the board size.
My board is a combination of:
- Business cards (for my own business and those that I might like to work with/for)
- Images of the things I hope to manifest into my life/things that I’m grateful for/images that portray a feeling/emotion that I am working towards
- Quotes of inspiration and words of affirmation that inspire me/fit the current stage of life I’m going through
Over the years I’ve changed up by boards and also removed/added things as things align/no longer align or as events come and go. Before my wedding I had fabric swatches, images of florals etc.
There is no rule on how to create a board, it is completely personal to you and with the soul purpose of resonating and inspiring you.
– If you want it to be black and white, that’s fine – use colours you find aesthetically pleasing.
– If words speak to you more than images, don’t use pictures.
– If you don’t like your handwriting, type and print words/quotes you want to read so that when you look at the board each day you don’t sit their criticising the untidiness of it, but actually read and feel into the words you’ve displayed.
You may have a whole wall in your house dedicated to your vision or lots of little boards for different aspects of your life. Use your imagination and allow yourself to run wild with it. Don’t rush the process, take your time and sit with it for as long as you need to.
My first vision board I created was a big felt board. I used wadding, fabric and a staple gun for a pin cushion effect. Then I used some ribbon to grid the board and a glue gun to secure a little bell in each ribbon join. I didn’t want to use pins on this board, I just wanted to slide in my inspiration to change it out as needed.
My next vision board was more of a ‘budget’ board. I bought a pin board from Kmart along with some push pins. I had some card and some gel pens to write things on and I printed images out from Pinterest. I like things to overlap, but that’s my personal preference.
The other important thing to note is that you need to put this in a position in your space where you will see it and take the time to look at it. Whether it be in your bedroom or your office. If you have a corner dedicated to your meditation/ritual practises this may be the perfect addition so you can spend dedicated time imagining your life as you truly wish for it to be (whilst also appreciating where you are now of course – manifestation doesn’t work without gratitude!).
Let me be completely honest and say that I am a completely private person so for me to ‘display’ my vision boards I’ve had to overcome some limiting beliefs. I’m at a place now where I’m not embarrassed about what I want nor do I care about other people’s opinions of what I place on my board because I am creating this for ME. If I hold back on putting things up there that I truly desire fearing other peoples judgement then I’m also telling myself that I don’t believe that I DESERVE those things or am attaching some kind of shame or disbelief.
Lastly when you’re creating your board put on some music, binaural beats or have an inspirational podcast playing that makes you feel happy. Light a candle, burn some incense and have a beautiful scent fill the room. If you lift your vibration whilst you’re creating you will help create the magic in your life that you deserve. That feeling will carry through each time you look towards your vision board and have a positive and uplifting vibe.
And very lastly always remember that ABUNDANCE is infinite and you are so deserving! You don’t have to have all the answers, you don’t need to figure out how this will be come to fruition you just need to be clear on what you want and how it will make you feel and trust that the universe will make it happen whether it’s the exact “thing/feeling etc.” you want or something even better!
I would LOVE to know if this helped you and of course if you would like to share your creations that would honestly fill me with so much joy!
***SIDE NOTE: This isn’t just a “grown up” thing, this would be a really powerful activity to do with children/teenagers too. You can guide them or help them brainstorm but this needs to be true to them. Allow them to create without any judgement – just pure love. support and encouragement.***
Happy creating – reach for the stars! x
