So instead of writing resolutions, I like to write intentions but most importantly, I LOVE to set my intentions in a VISUAL way. And what better way then a Vision Board?!
I can't explain how powerful and life changing it is to create a Vision Board!
I am going to show you how to create a GirlieVegan Vision Board in order to manifest your desires!
What is a Vision Board?
A Vision Board is a poster board filled with images and pictures of dreams, goals, desires, intentions and anything that makes you happy. It is also known as a Dream Board, Treasure Map, Vision Map or Inspiration Board.
Why A Vision Board?
Creating a Vision Board can be a powerful tool to help you manifest your true core desires.
The images you paste on your Vision Board whether it's a place you want to live or vacation, who you want to become, or things you want, will then start entering your life. Your life starts changing in order to match the images on your Vision Board. That's how powerful the tool of visualization is.
- POSTER BOARD
Feel free to choose any color board that really calls your attention. There is no wrong color!
Always try to get a poster board big enough to fit all your images.
You can find YES! Paste at your local arts & crafts store, Michaels or Walmart.
Elmer's Glue is also vegan! Yay!!! And so easy to find at any discount store or supermarket.
The more variety you have, the better chances you will have of finding all the images you desire!
There were amazing inspirational quotes I found in a magazine I would have never purchased. So be mindful not to stick to one type of magazine.
You can always stop by your local hair & nail salon, doctor's office or even libraries, and ask if they are throwing away any magazines so you can take with you to create a Vision Board.
I always listen to music that makes me HAPPY! Music has sound frequencies that can alter your state of emotions.
When creating a Vision Board I like music that uplifts my spirits whether it's fun pop, dance or hip hop music, I listen to music in which the words are inspiring and the beat uplifting! Now, if new age music brings you that happiness then go for it! Just stay away from anything that's depressing, sad or makes you angry! Although all those emotions will still help you manifest anything in the end, you don't want to be upset while creating your Vision Board. It's supposed to be fun!!!
- RIBBONS & FABRICS
I like to decorate mine with cute ribbons around the edge to make it look like a piece of art work! Although it's a Vision Board it's still a piece of art, it's YOUR art work! Your energy, your images, your desires! So you should enjoy looking at it!
- STONES & CRYSTALS
Since I am a complete Girlie geek I like to also use my favorite incense. The more the merrier!
Before starting, it's important to have a clear mind so you can set a better intention.
This is where your candle & incense come in ;)
If you have some incense at home, light it up now.
Sit quietly, hold your candle with both your hands, close your eyes and envision a bubble of white light surrounding your entire body and set the intention that all the images you paste onto your Vision Board you are certain will manifest.
Light the candle. While you are in this state of calmness allow the ego to step outside the room.
Now, lovingly, ask yourself what it is that your heart truly desires. Avoid rushing this process. This is an important step in creating a great Vision Board. Let the answers pour in, even if it's just one word. Allow this process of stillness to enter your soul.
Step 2: Cut
Now have fun and go thru your magazines and cut out any images or words that call your attention. Even if you don't understand why you are cutting out that image, just do it anyway!
This process is sooo much fun! Enjoy it! The more images you have, the better!
Step 3: Sort
Now that you have all the images in front of you, now sort through all the images and set aside your favorites, the ones that call your attention the most. If there is an image you don't like anymore, trust your intuition! This is key in sorting out all your favorite images, you must feel excited about the images!
Step 4: Organize
Set all your images on your board. As you lay them down you will be able to play with the images on the board until you feel right about it. You may find that you gave the board a special section for each desired theme: relationships, business, home, vacation, health, spirituality, etc.
Or you may just lay them all over the place and that's okay too! There's no wrong way of laying down your images!
*Tip: Placing a fabulous picture of yourself in the middle of your Vision Board is a powerful tool!!! Make sure you leave room in the middle to add a picture of yourself looking very happy and alive!
Step 5: Paste
Take your time pasting all your images right where you want them.
This part is a happy process. Set emotions of certainty because you know you will be receiving and manifesting all these images and desires into your life!!
Step 6: Decorate
This is the part where you can decorate your Vision Board if you have ribbons and fabrics. You can add paint, glitter or anything creative and fun!
Step 7: Display
Your GirlieVegan Vision Board is now complete and ready to be displayed! Make sure to display it somewhere you will see it everyday and feel inspired. Hang it up on your bedroom wall or anywhere you feel it's right for you.
Some people are shy about displaying it in public so try to find a place in your home where it's for your eyes only.
But do keep in mind that the people that have the most success with manifesting what's on their Vision Board are the people that displayed it in a visible place. So try your bedroom, closet or even office! Go for it!
- Write the date you created your GirlieVegan Vision Board on the back of your board.
- Make one each year. Or if you want to create a board for each theme in your life or a specific project then feel free to create one as often as you like.
- Make sure you do not create a Vision Board that is cluttered. Leave enough room so that you have space in between the images and themes.
- You can also hand write some of the affirmations or desires that you want on to your Vision Board.
- Spend time each morning and evening staring at your Vision Board and envision all the images already manifested in your life. Let your emotions rise and FEEL it yours already.
45 minutes before going to bed your thoughts and images in your mind are the ones that will replay in your subconscious throughout the night. The thought and images that you begin each day with will help you create a vibrational match for the future you desire.
This is why it's important to let the last visions and thoughts on your mind before going to sleep are the images on your Vision Board. The same when awakening in the morning. Set the tone of your new day with positive images that are on your Vision Board!
Thank you for taking the time to read and I encourage you to give the GirlieVegan Vision Board a shot and please let me know how it turned out!
GirlieVegans Do It Better!!!
