Make a vision board to attract more of what you want in life. A vision board is a collection of images that you select, depicting wishes, dreams, and goals as well as inspirational pictures and words.
Most vision boards are made by cutting images from magazines. Then the images are arranged and glued to a large board and hung in place so you can see it everyday.
Vision boards keep you focused on what you want in your life. They can also keep you upbeat and energized.
Use vision boards to:
- Get clear on your dreams and aspirations
- Become motivated to take action
- View the bigger picture of your life
- Stay inspired and upbeat
- Shift your inner experience
- Enlist the Law of Attraction
- Manifest your dreams
- Ease anxiety and stress
When your vision board is displayed where you see it often, the vision board becomes a constant reminder of what you want in your life. The vision board starts working on your unconscious where the real power of your mind resides. This can work magic as you open up and see opportunities where you normally wouldn’t because the vision board has given you permission to have them.
Some people believe that vision boards have another kind of magic inherent in them. This is called the “Law of Attraction.” By visualizing what you want the universe rearranges itself to deliver your dreams and desires because by visualizing what you want you create a vibration within yourself that becomes a magnet that attracts “like-minded vibrations” to you.
Regardless of your belief system, vision boards are a powerful tool for people to use to expand what they have in their life.

How to Make a Vision Board
You will need a poster board, scissors, magazines, glue and maybe glitter pens (for that extra sparkle and magic).
Flip through the magazines and start finding images and words that you like; find things you are attracted to and don’t ask why or how. Build up a pile of these images; then start arranging them on your board.
This should be relaxing and feel good – you can’t make a mistake. Relax and go with the flowRelax. You're making a vision board not your federal income taxes. Click To Tweet
Once you feel everything is looking pretty good on the board you can start gluing the images in place. You might want to add more images or find interesting textures to fill in white space. Keep looking for visual treasures in your magazines until the whole vision board has this certain sparkle to it and you know you’re finished.
Hang it some place and imagine all these good things happening to you. There are countless stories of people who have manifested the things on their vision board, including me and it can happen to you too.
When you make a vision board the process becomes more feeling-oriented. You have limited images to select from since they generally come from magazines. This limitation allows you to pulls words and images that match you emotionally as opposed to getting exactly what you want materially.
It is the feeling that has the vision board magic in it. Feelings are emotions in motion. By artificially recreating positive feelings we enlist the vibrations necessary to attract what we want.
I have been making vision boards for decades and recently started making vision board websites and vision boards in all kinds of software applications. When vision boards move into this new technology they become more accessible since they are in digital format and available 24/7.
