We use our vision boards to call our manifestations into existence. Your vision board is akin to your cosmic seed catalogue. Decide what you’ll plant and focus your passion on this.
I like to make vision boards a couple times a year. As I grow my vision changes (plus I love making collages) so I make them often.
I decided October is a good month for me to assess my year. It’s the time I refer to as ‘my personal new year’ so it was fitting I had the urge to create a new one now.
After I’m done I always display it in a place I see it daily to remember be me of what I want to bring forth more of in my life.
I also like to create value boards. The last one I made (shown above) was the beginning of 2015 on the suggestion of a life coach I was working with. My values don’t change much so I don’t make them as frequently.
He did not give me any instructions so I ran with it in my own and stared with a photo of me in the center, and using words that describe my good traits, strengths, and values. He told me once I created it, I could use it to meditate on a few minutes a day to help keep me on the right path, boost my confidence and keep me focused on my values. I found it has really helped.
I use a similar process for both my value and vision boards:
I took a stack of magazines and started snipping out words that I felt reflected me. I also found some good images to use as my background base.
For my value board I used an image of waves, since the sea holds special meaning to me and it’s where I feel most alive, and I used a strip of dark with light shinning on it, to remind me of me of one of the guiding quotes I love so much: Turn the lens of your life to catch more of the light.
Then I placed my photo in the center, and started placing the words I found around it.
Some words I hand lettered (like “full” seen above), but I kept that to a minimum for this project.
For my vision board I didn’t use a photo of myself but found more images to snip from magazines to use in the board itself rather than for just background images. These additional images symbolize things I wish to manifest.
On both, I outlined the words with black and white china markers to make them stand out from the background.
Here are some great resources on creating a vision board of your own:
