To consciously manifest means to consciously decide what you want to create before doing anything else.
This is why having a vision board around you all the time is SO important to: A) keep what you are working towards at the top of your mind, and B) help you send a clear energetic message to the Universe of what you want to have in your life.
Recently, I have been feeling like the vision board that I created just over a year ago no longer resonates with me as my desires have matured, and of course – some of the things that were on there have now been received! So it was time for a 2019 update & these are the exact steps that I took and would recommend to anyone else about to put their vision onto paper…
Creating a vision board should feel like a fun process where you can really step in to the mood of dreaming up a magical new life for yourself. Therefore, I encourage you to give yourself a whole morning/afternoon and set up a creative workspace with candles/your favourite tunes and anything else that will make you feel good! By being in this positive zone while setting the intentions for what you will create, you are already starting the initiation process for your new manifestations.
No-one says that you need to have a boring white vision board like everyone else, so I recommend buying an A2 piece of card in your favourite colour. Last year my vision board was pink (my favourite colour) but this year I just went for orange because it was what felt good at the time. As always, just go with whatever feels good for you.
I always find that my creative juices flow best when I write by hand, so I encourage you to brainstorm a list of the things that you would like to have. Think about your timeframe too – is this vision board for the next year, 5 years, or a mix of both?
It can also be productive to group your desires into segments. For example, I made a section for where I want to live, what I want to own, and what I want to achieve in my career. If you want to manifest more money into your life, then I recommend writing out a cheque for the exact amount that you want and adding it to your board. You can print one here 💵 or from the bottom of this page.
Now it is time to move over to your computer and start scouring the web for photos of everything that you’ve brainstormed. Save all of the photos which resonate best with you into a single word document. Resize the images until they look like a rough fit for your page, and then squeeze them on as few pages as possible to save your printer paper.
A fun thing to do at this point is to print off a few pictures of yourself too. Then you are able to add your face right into the scenarios that you would like to feature in in the future! By seeing yourself as already being there on a regular basis, your brain will become more and more comfortable with the idea, and it won’t feel so distant from your tangible reality. By repeatedly envisioning yourself in situations which may seem worlds away now, you are starting to create your new normal.
At last it is time to get hands on! Send your word document to the printer and cut out all of the images that you have collected. Place them onto your A2 piece of coloured card (no sticking yet) and see how they all fit together. Are there some which should be bigger, or smaller? Most likely there will be, so go back to the drawing board (aka computer) and resize them as needed.
Yes, this is a repeat of the last step. After your 2nd/3rd/4th print, do the pictures look the right size? And does your face fit properly into the scenes? Do they all fit onto the A2 page, and does it feel like it’s starting to come together? When the answer is YES, then move onto Step 7.
When your positioning feels good – grouped or ungrouped – it is time to secure your dreams with pritt-stick. No pressure though, because you can easily peel them off and move them around if you change your mind.
When I’m in the stationary store, I also like to buy letter stickers so that I can add some inspirational words between my images – such as the name of the place I would like to live, or the personal qualities that I will try to embody.
You should be just about there with your vision board! How does it feel? Hopefully it paints an accurate picture of what you would like your future to look like.
Now you just need to decide where your vision board will fit into your life. Mine lives on the wall next to my bed so that I can see my dreams before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up. This is also next to my meditation corner, so I can focus on all of the images and be grateful for them in advance during meditation.
I hope that your new vision board delivers you everything that you ask for, and most importantly, makes you feel more inspired than ever to go out and chase your dreams. When the images on your board walk into your life as tangible objects or situations, then please don’t forget to tell me about it – I would love to know and celebrate with you! 🏆
