So you have a vision of how you want your life to be, but feel unable to make it a reality. You are driven, passionate and motivated, yet you still aren’t living the life you have always dreamed of!
I think we all know what that feels like…
Creating your dream life is no easy task. It can take some time to make your goals and ambitions a reality. But bringing your dreams to life is almost impossible unless you get clear on what you want out of life and give yourself a picture of what you are working towards.
Well, a Vision Board can help you with exactly that. Also known as a dream board, a vision board is a well-known manifestation tool that can help you both attract what you wish to bring into your life and keep you focused on your goals! In this article, I will explain exactly how you can make a successful and effective vision board using a few specific techniques.
How a Vision Board Works
A vision board works on the principle that what we focus on, we attract into our lives. This is also widely known as the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction is based on the idea that we have the power to manifest what we desire into our reality by consciously drawing our focus and attention to it. When we do this, we alter our frequency and become an energetic match for whatever we are trying to manifest.
And you know what the beautiful thing about manifestation is? It works for almost anything, so long as it is in alignment with your soul path and highest good. (Yes, believe it or not, there is a Divine plan for each of us which is constantly unraveling as we go through life.)
Now, what a vision board does is help to keep our daily focus on those heartfelt desires and goals. This helps to program our subconscious mind which magnetically pulls that house, job, partner, etc. into our reality. It also helps give some organisation to our goalds and keeps our eye on the finish line if you like. (Although, there really is no such thing as a finish line as life is constantly evolving!)
The Most Important Part Of Creating a Vision Board
However, what a lot of people don’t realise when creating a vision board is that it needs to be created as if it reflects your life in the now. So to put it simply, you need to make a vision board as if you already have the life of your dreams. What’s more, after you have made it, you need to continue to look at it in that same way.
The reason for this is, if you create a vision board that reflects your life in the future, that life will very simply stay in the future. This is because you are manifesting a ‘future’ not a ‘present’. Similarly, if you focus on the fact that you don’t have those things, you will constantly create a reality where you don’t have those things. Make sense?
As such, when you are figuring out what you want to put on your board it is important that all words and phrases are written in the present tense rather than in the future tense, So instead of writing ‘I want’, write ‘I have’ or ‘I am’.
It can also be useful to write ‘I am grateful’ for, next to love, gratitude is one of the most powerful energetic forces we can wield.
This is why positive affirmations and words are so powerful for vision boards. They help to both draw your energy to the present moment and for you to see that you already are everything you need to be!
And I think it is important to remember that whilst there are things in life we might desire, as beautiful Divine beings we already have everything we need inside of us. After all, it will only be you who are able to work your magic and alchemise those dreams into reality! All you have to do is unleash your inner potential.

Plan & Brainstorm What You Want To Put On Your Vision Board
Another critical step in creating an effective vision board is planning what you actually want to put on it. Firstly, have a think about what areas of your life need more attention. This could be your career, social life or even love life. Or perhaps your health and mental wellbeing need a bit of tlc. From here, make it more granular and think about individual goals you want to achieve and what you really want out of life.
Don’t worry, you are not superficial if you want things like a new car or home. We are living in a physical reality and there is nothing wrong with enjoying what this world has to offer!

Make It As Positive & Personal
If your vision board is going to help you build a life where your dreams come true, then you need to make sure that it is going to motivate you every time you look at it. As such, find inspiring images, words, and quotes that reflect the life that you want.
It needs to be personal and evoke an emotional response in you. Use your own personal photos of moments where you felt your happiest in life or of things you have found which you wish to have.
And another thing, don’t hold back! Make it as beautiful and vibrant as possible. Ensure that it reflects your style and is aesthetically pleasing.
Take The Time To Connect With Your Vision Board Everyday
Something that many people forget to do after they have made a vision board is to actively connect with it. This is very important if you are going to use it to manifest your desired life.
Take a few minutes every day to have a look at it and visualise what your life would look like if you achieved all those goals. And as I mentioned earlier, don’t forget to visualise it as if your life is like that in the ‘now’. So you may want to imagine that you are living in that home you want to buy or that the car you have had your eye on is already parked outside (where are those keys again?). Sounds silly I know but give it a try. It will be worth it!
Don’t Forget To Update Your Vision Board
As we grow and evolve so do our visions for the future. This is why it is important to remember to update your vision board as you gradually attract your dream life. The dreams that may have resonated with us two or three years ago, might not resonate with us today so make sure you are updating or changing your vision board accordingly.
Have Fun Creating It
Creating a vision board is supposed to be a fun and creative exercise. Be playful, creative, and enjoy the process! If we enjoy making it then we are already infusing the energy of joy and happiness into it which will make it just that bit more effective at making your dreams come true.
