Goddess with Goals - Vision Board

Friday, 16 November 2018


By now you should have heard of Vision boards. If you have read most self-help books or watched any motivational video, most speak of these. A vision board is collage of pictures, affirmations, goals desires and wishes, all pasted on a board that will help you manifest your dreams and visions for the future. 

I first heard about Vision or Dream boards from the wonderful, Donna McCallum, aka The Fairy Godmother, in her book The Fairy Godmother's Guide to getting what you want. Since then I have made many a dream boards. This visual aid will help you achieve all your dreams. 


Gets you to think about the future

How many times do plan for the future? With a vision board, you take the time to think about what you want in the future. From your career, to family to your dream house and all the vacations you want to take. I see it as a kind of road map of the future.

You manifest by looking at it

When you keep looking at something, your subconscious helps you achieve those dreams and goals. You might not register that you are looking at it daily but your subconscious definitely does see it. The choices you make will be because of your subconscious telling you to make the right choices.

What do you put on a vision board?

Anything you want for the future. Your dream house, your dream car, vacations you want to go on. If you want to get healthy, you could put pictures of people exercising on there. If you want to live by the ocean, a picture of where you want to live. You can put words that inspire you, feelings you want to invoke within yourself. This is your vision board, your future and you can put exactly what you want on it. 

But to get a better guide of what to put on, I would really suggest The Fairy Godmothers Guide to getting what you want.

How do you make a vision board?

Back in the day, you would buy a large A2 poster board and collect all your old magazines, with glue in hand and a pair of scissors, you would go to work cutting out images that would inspire you. Words that represented the future you wanted. 

You would then stick them all down and put the board where you could see it daily. 

But being in the 21st century, and everything being digital, I thought it was time for a vision board reboot. We look at our phones and our laptop screens all day. And if like me, there is no place in your office to put up a vision board, then you need to come up with something else. 

So why not make a vision board wallpaper for your phone and laptop/desktop? If you can use canva or pixlr, you can create your own. 

You will need to search for images online of your dreams and goals. Exactly like when you snipped them out of the magazines, you need to make a list of what you want on board, then go and search pictures. 

You create the background of your "board" in the size of your phone or laptop. Make it your favorite color, then you layer the pictures on top. Add words and anything you want to. It is so simple and very therapeutic I might add. Here is mine for the New Year. 

I hope this helps anyone who is in need of a little vision for the future. And if you do decide to create one, I would love to see your creations.
