In my last article I introduced you to The Law of Attraction and laid down the basic concepts of it. One of the useful (and fun) ways to implement the Law of Attraction into your life is by creating a “vision” or “mood” board. It is one of the most valuable tools for visualisation. Try thinking of the collage as a picture of your future. It should depict your dreams and goals and it needs to make you emit positive feelings when you look at it. Creating your perfect vision board takes time and shouldn’t be something you rush to complete. So set aside a few hours, get comfy, make a cuppa and let’s get into how to create your vision board!
The first thing you are going to need to get is a cork board. Cork boards are ideal as by using pins they make it easier to add/remove images over time instead of gluing an image down to a piece of paper only to want to get rid of it if you decide you no longer want it or if it has already manifested. I picked up a cork board from Woodies for only €5.50, but most arts and craft stores should have them too.
Sit down and think about what it is you want on your vision board. Really try to narrow it down to some of your main wants. Too many images can be overwhelming and mean you don’t fully focus in on your goals. Try to resist adding pictures just to add to its aesthetic or to fill up space! Don’t be conscious of what other people will think about your vision board. Add a picture of that mini cooper you want. Add the name of the company you want to get that job with, this is about YOUR goals.
Once you have a fair idea of what you want, you can browse through some magazines and get some cut outs from there. I prefer using websites like Pinterest (give us a follow @missydotie) or even just Google Images, so I can specifically search for what it is I want and just print them out. Your vision board is going to be placed somewhere where you are going to see it everyday so it’s important that it is visually pleasing.
A good idea would be to maybe get some inspo from other people’s boards on Pinterest or Tumblr. Perhaps sticking to a certain colour scheme of keeping it minimalistic whatever is appealing to YOU! Feel free to go ham if you want to, let your creativity flow, add glitter and fabrics if that’s what will bring you happiness when you see it and make you proud to display it!
Now that you’ve completed your vision board it’s time to pick a spot for it to be put on display and let your dreams manifest! Try putting it somewhere where you will be guaranteed to see it every single day. And to get the best use out of it try set aside a few minutes everyday to look over it and focus on the images and how they are making you feel.
Remember, in the Law of Attraction a huge emphasis is placed on how you feel. It’s all well and good adding a picture of the Louis Vuitton handbag of your dreams, but if looking at it evokes a feeling of lacking and makes you think about how you don’t have it now or how/when you will get your hands on it, remove the picture. You need to receive a feeling of happiness and excitement knowing of what is on its way to you.
Glancing over the board before bed may be most effective. This is because the thoughts and images that are in your mind during the 45 minutes before you go to sleep are the ones that will replay themselves in your subconscious mind throughout the course of the night, and the thoughts and images that you start each day with will help you to create a vibrational match for the future you desire.
We’re off to make our vision board now…
That was pretty simple, right? If you really enjoy the creative process as much as I do perhaps down the line you could create two vision boards, one for short-term goals and one for long-term goals. Anyways, that’s all for this post, if you decide to create your very own vision board we would LOVE to see them! Give us a tag on any of our socials if you decide you get creative.
Until the next one 🙂
