One thing that's extremely powerful when it comes to manifesting is - Vision Boards. But, a lot of people get stuck in the spiral of collecting the most beautiful pictures, finding that perfect picture of their dream vacation or the beautiful home office... clipping all the pretty quotes instead of focusing on the FEELING of what they want to accomplish.
It's not the vision board that helps you achieve your dreams BUT the clear vision + alignment you feel that turns the vision into a reality.
So how do you make a vision board that works?
1. Start by setting your intentions & getting specific
+ What do you need? Don't just say abundance or extra money or pay my bills. Get specific - How much money? What's the $$ amount of bills you want to pay?
+ How will you feel when these visions turn into a reality?
2. Create a sacred space
Find a space that's big enough for you to work & hold your supplies to make your vision board. You can add things like - crystals, incense, play some music in the background etc. anything that brings out the feelings & help you tap into your vision & get aligned with what you want.
3. Find words & images that resonate with your intentions -
Vision board is about finding images that resonate with what you want to accomplish, how you want to feel & what makes you feel aligned with your goals. If it's a pretty picture that you are attracted to that makes you feel aligned with that particular goal, use it. If it's a quote - use that! Find whatever your soul resonates with. If you can't find anything, get creative & draw it out on a colorful piece of paper or print it out from the web.
Example - If you are setting the intention of wellness & getting healthy, you can browse for pictures that spark those feelings in you. If there's something that makes you feel like you can't get there, maybe it makes you focus on what you aren’t YET, don't put them on your vision board. It's not the kind of feelings you want to go for.
4. Put your vision board somewhere you can see it constantly
Put your vision board somewhere you can see daily & that sets as a daily reminder of the feelings, desires & goals you are working towards. Look at the board often (when you get up, before you sleep & anytime you get in between) and connect with the feelings you felt when you created the board. You can even click a picture & put it on your phone to look at whenever you feel like.
5. Take Action
Start taking aligned/ inspired action towards your goal RIGHT NOW. Start being grateful for the opportunities that come along your way to support your goal & help you turn it into a reality. Focus less on "how" you'll achieve the goals & more on the feeling of - gratitude & how you'll feel once your goal has been accomplished.
6. Don't let resistance STOP you
As you start working on your goals, you'll feel resistance, limiting beliefs or old values sabotaging your progress from time to time. Don't let that stop you. Take out your journal & ask yourself why you are feeling resistant, what's the limiting belief that's stopping you & how you can overcome it?
Accomplish your goals, celebrate & repeat the process to create another vision board.
Remember, a successful vision board always starts with POWERFUL INTENTIONS.
