1. Set your intentions.
What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you value?
How do you want to feel when those things are your reality?
(When thinking of the feelings, be sure to choose single emotion words like free, open, joy, etc.)
2. Gather your supplies.
The exact supplies you’ll need will depend on exactly what kind of vision board you are making. But, in general, you will need the following:
- Something to attach images to, such as: Blank art book with mixed media paper.
- A large sheet of paper
- A cork board
- Index cards, etc.
- Something to affix the images such as glue, clips, or pins
- Markers, pens, paint
- Colorful or plain paper for adding personal flair
- Magazines/books that can be cut up
What kind of vision board do you want to make and what supplies will you need?
3. Create Sacred Space.
Find a space that you feel comfortable in and that is large enough to spread out all of your supplies. A large table or the floor are usually great choices.
Choose music, light candles, burn incense, chant, gather your crystals, sing to your angels, bang drums, or anything else that supports you in feeling comfortable, relaxed, and tapped into your desires.
What else do you need to create some sacred space to make your vision board in?
4. Find your images + words.
At this step, you are going to find images and words that resonate with your intention, without actually attaching them to anything. Just find images and words that appeal to you by flipping through the magazines and cutting them out.
If you don’t find exactly what you are looking for, get creative and make your own. You can print things from the web, draw, or even just write things on colorful paper.
What images and words seem to resonate most with your intention?
5. Find the ones that resonate and then, paste them to the page.
Attach all your words and images to your blank canvas in a way that will remind you of your goals and intentions for 2019! This part is fun and doesn’t require intense concentration so put on some music and enjoy!
6. Put your vision board somewhere that you can see it.
Once your vision board is complete, it can now be used as a visual reminder of what you’re desired feelings, intentions, and personal core values.
Look at your board often and connect with the feelings under the intention of the board.
You can pin the pages up somewhere so that you can see them or put them away and pull it out from time to time.
Whatever helps you connect with the feelings of your desire is what matters here.
Continue to check in and ask yourself how things are going. Make adjustments and keep fine-tuning. Trust the process and remember, you wouldn’t be able to dream it if it wasn’t a possibility.
As you move closer to your vision, what adjustments need to be made?
Ultimately, making a vision board that works is about get really clear about what you want, start taking steps towards that vision, and heal the blocks that show up along the way. It’s really as simple (but perhaps not always easy!) as that.
