Insider tips to make your vision board effective and powerful


Clarify your intentions: Before you start cutting out pictures and words, take some time to clarify your intentions and goals. What do you truly want to manifest in your life? Be specific and write down your goals. The more clarity you have, the more effective your vision board will be.



Focus on emotions: Vision boards are not just about visuals; they're also about the emotions behind your desires. Choose photos and words that evoke strong positive feelings. When you look at your vision board, you should feel excited, motivated, and inspired.

Create a theme: Instead of making a generic vision board, consider creating a theme for it. For example, you could have a career-focused vision board, a weight loss board, or a relationship board. This will help you organize your goals and create a more coherent vision.

Visualization exercises: Before you start placing images on your board, close your eyes and visualize your goals as if they've already come true. Feel the emotions associated with your achievements. This will help you select images and words that resonate with your vision.

Include yourself: Don't forget to include pictures of yourself on your vision board. This personalizes your goals and helps you connect with them on a deeper level. Use current photos, or find images that represent the best version of yourself.

Balance short-term and long-term goals: Mix short-term and long-term goals on your vision board. This ensures that you're not only focused on immediate desires but also on your bigger dreams and aspirations.



Activate your board: After you crafted your personal dream board, remember to fulfil a small wish to charge the board with positive energy (aka to activate it). The wish from your vision board needs to be fulfilled shortly after the vision board has been created.

Update regularly: Your goals and aspirations may change over time. It's essential to revisit and update your vision board periodically, perhaps every six months or annually. Remove goals you've achieved and add new ones that have emerged.

Affirmations and mantras: Incorporate affirmations and empowering mantras on your vision board. These positive statements can reinforce your beliefs and boost your confidence in achieving your goals.



Placement matters: Pay attention to where you place items on your physical vision board. Put the most significant and central goals in the middle, as these are your top priorities. Use the outer edges for supporting goals and aspirations. Alternatively, you can apply the feng shui bagua grid, in alignment with the cardinal directions.

Gratitude area: Dedicate a small section of your vision board to express gratitude for what you've already achieved. This reinforces a positive mindset and attracts more abundance into your life.

Keep It private or share: Decide whether you want to keep your vision board private or share it with others. Some people find that sharing their goals with a trusted friend or mentor adds accountability and support. Others prefer to keep the board private (e.g. on a phone or a journal) to save it from the vicious looks.

Track your progress: There are a few different ways to track progress on a vision board, e.g. using a journal, a spreadsheet, or your vision board itself. Document your progress, add notes or challenges you're facing. Don’t forget to mark your dreams as fulfilled. This way you can celebrate your wins along the way.



Last recommendation


Remember that a vision board is a tool to help you manifest your dreams, but it also requires action and commitment on your part.


Though it takes time to manifest your dreams, don't give up if you don't see results right away. Regularly revisit your board, stay focused on your goals, and take concrete steps toward achieving them 🙌.
