Divinely Organized – How and Why to Make Your Own Vision Board
My Blogger Buddies (BBs) and I have come up with ideas and a couple of different styles of vision boards to help you create your own board for 2016. As you know, or perhaps you don’t, many people, and I am one, feel that creating a vision board is a sure fire way to consciously and subconsciously connect with the universe to in order to help you reach your goals. There are many methods to building vision boards. The manual way that my BBs have suggested and the virtual way, which I have chosen to try this year are a couple.
My BBs, Patricia Leitao and Kelly Mahan and I hope you will find this article useful and you will find a reason and a style to build a vision board of your own. It is always a pleasure to have Patricia and Kelly drop by The Command Center.
Vision boards are one of the easiest and most powerful tools you can use to reach your goals and dreams. If you’ve never made a vision board before, you may be wondering how a collage of images can help you achieve your goals. Vision boards work because every time you look at one you’re essentially doing a mini visualization exercise. Visualization is one of the most powerful brain exercises you can do. Professional athletes use visualization exercises all the time. As do psychologists. As you look at your vision board, you also open yourself up to the law of attraction, which basically states that what you focus on will come into your life. Now let’s find out how to make a vision board.
Step 1: Define Your Goals
Your vision board s only as good as what you want to achieve. Make a list of your hopes, dreams, and goals. These can be emotions you want to feel like love, happiness, and hope. Or they can be more material such as getting a promotion or losing weight. Whatever your goals are, write them down. It doesn’t matter how big or small they are or how impossible they may seem.
Step 2: FInd Your Images
This is the most important part of making your vision board. You have to find images that represent your goals. The images you select only have to make sense to you. If you want to experience love, maybe you’ll use the tried-and-true image of a heart. Or, you could use an image of two people hugging. Or, if you have a photo that makes you smile every time you look at it, use that. Be very careful when picking your images. Don’t use images that have any negative emotions or connotations attached to them.
Step 3: Build Your Vision Board
The next step is to take all of your images and put them on your vision board. Your vision board can be made out of anything you want – a cork board, a wall, or a picture frame. Use whatever you want as long as you can put it in a place you see every day. Arrange the images however you want, though try not to overlap them too much.
Step 4: Use Your Vision Board
A vision board only works if you look at it. Take a few minutes every day, preferably multiple times a day, to look at your vision board. Think about each image and how it relates to your goals. Imagine yourself living the way you want to live. Visualize yourself getting that promotion or being happy. The best time to use your vision board is before bed so the images are fresh in your subconscious. It’s also a good idea to keep a vision board journal. Start it when you make your vision board. Then write in it as you achieve your goals. You’ll be surprised how fast you’ll be able to reach some of them.
On another note, I mentioned above that I tried something new this year and created my vision board online. I used Microsoft Publisher, but I’m certain some of you are move computer savvy than I and have all sorts of great software that will do the same thing. My reasoning for creating my board virtually this year are as follows:
I can view my board from any of my devices, phone, tablet, my personal laptop and on the cloud at work
I can print copies to place all about
I can set it up as my screen saver
I can make it my landing page on my phone
I can have a printed copy in my car
The possibilities are endless. And I thought that since the vision board only works if you can look at it, why have it stationary when that is not how I live my life? So far, I am loving it and my visions should be seriously manifesting. 🙂
I have included a picture of my personal vision board. I have blurred some areas because the board is personal but you get the jest of what I did. If you have another software to create a virtual vision board, please share.
On anther note, the reason my pic is smack dab in the center is not because of vanity. I just figured that I am the core for all of my endeavors and need to have my visions and desires floating around me.
