Create a Vision Board
What is a Vision Board?
Vision boards can be powerful tools to reach goals and bring dreams to life. Also known as a dream board or treasure map, a vision board can be powerful as a change catalyst. Think of it as a collage of images representing YOU as your best self. Creating a vision board is about assembling images that represent the vision of you having everything you want to do, to be or to have in your life.
The original vision board concept involved collecting images of paper, maybe cut from magazines or even your own photos or image creations. You would then assemble these with glue on a poster board and keep it somewhere you will see daily, like on your desk or even hanging on a wall in your home or office.
Creating an electronic vision board with vision board software is a simpler and more modern version of the same concept. You could also create a free digital vision board with some of the free photo editing sites, as many of them now offer the option to create a collage free.

Create a Powerful Vision Board to Manifest Your Dreams
Putting together a cardboard vision board can be fun, and it can certainly work if you focus on those positive vibrations regularly. Using vision board software is just another method that many find easier and more versatile.
Choose images that resonate, those that give you a really excited feeling. Allow the vision to slide into your subconscious mind in a way that calmly quiets the ego.
Just the same as setting goals, it is really important to give it daily FOCUS!
Look at it daily. Use your vision board as a tool to help you create a matching vibration to whatever it is you want to have, be or do in your near future.
A vision board is simply a tool to help visualize your future. Creating one is a start, but daily FOCUS is the power and fuel to manifest that dream.
The Law of Attraction - in Action
Many use vision boards in conjunction with the law of attraction. Thoughts are powerful vibrations that create energy - powerful energy that can fire up the process of manifesting your desires.
The Law of Attraction suggests that you will attract to your life the very things you think most about. If you allow your thoughts to focus on worries and negative issues, you will only attract more ot the same. On the other hand, if your train your brain to focus on JOY and positive outcomes, the energy from these thoughts will attract the same.
A simple interpretation is this: 'What we think about, we BRING about.'
Believers in the law of attraction talk a lot about vibrations, meaning that If you are maintaining a vibration that matches what you are wanting, more things will come your way to make you feel that way.
You don't want to just look at the pictures on your vision board, you want to take a minute and FEEL IT - strive to FEEL the way you will when those images on your vision board are actually part of your life. Emotions are crucial to visualization and manifestation.
The Law of Attraction and Vision Boards
The Law of Attraction is the key to manifesting the abundant health, passion and wealth that is your birthright. You can easily apply it by using tour own unique vision board!
Let the vision board help you to FEEL as if you are living your dream life right NOW by giving it focus it daily. This visualization can attract energy to snowball the attraction of your dreams into your reality.
Make this vision board tool part of your daily routine. One way is to make the image your screen saver, so any time you would be otherwise looking at a blank screen you will see images of your vision! These images keep you inspired and focused on actions to manifest your dreams.
Guidelines for Creating Your Vision Board
Any goal that is not at the forefront of your mind is unimportant. Make your visions a pleasant and uplifting inspirational daily habit.
1) Include only YOUR visions. Do not be distracted by the visions of others. If you do look at a lot of vision board samples, you'll likely see lots of sports cars, huge mansions and cruise ships. Is that really YOU?
2) Be specific with reasonable visions. A homeless person isn't likely to suddenly manifest a mansion, right? Some people create a new vision board every 6 months to a year, which helps them to focus on that specific time frame with clarity. Be realistic. If you are penniless and unemployed, then do not put a monstrosity of a mansion on your vision board. Not to say it is necessarily wrong to "think BIG" but your vision board must reflect the attainable. Otherwise, you will feel overwhelmed and quit.
3) Keep the pictures large enough so you can see them easily. If you can not visualize yourself stepping into each photo on your vision board, then the pictures are too small. Make them bigger. I like to vary image sizes and overlap them a bit, giving it more of a collage look rather than a checker board.
4) Be as specific as you can. Vague notions like 'sunshine' or 'get rich' will not help you. Instead of 'sunshine' maybe depict a beach vacation, and instead of 'get rich' maybe envision a steady income from a new project.
Giving Visions Even More Power with Multi-Media
You might choose to also add music or even your own voice saying your affirmations.
It has been shown that hearing your own voice saying your affirmations has the ability to penetrate deep into your psyche allowing them to manifest even faster.
Be playful and have FUN with your visions!
