2019 UPDATE: I originally wrote this article back in 2017 so thought I would love to drop in an updated perspective. I really want to emphasize the importance of FEELINGS. Your feelings are always what constructs the fabric of your reality. When you are in the process of manifesting your dreams and goals then it's imperative to seek as much joy as possible. There is no better what to do this than to create a vision board with the feeling of joy in your heart.
Creating a vision board can be a thrilling activity for a person that loves to get messy with magazines, glue, scissors and big dreams. But did you know that there are other elements that need to be considered when you create a vision board that will determine if you indeed begin to manifest the things/people/places/experiences you desire?
Here are 7 Steps for Creating A Vision Board That Actually Works
1. Place it in your constant awareness
Put your board somewhere you will see it often so it can imprint itself into your subconscious mind.
2. Tune into the feeling of gratitude
When you take the time to look at your board, tune into the feeling of gratitude as if you have already manifested your desires. This will not only raise your vibration, but it will get the Universe to deliver your goodies a lot faster.
3. Remember the phrase: ‘This or something better’
It’s natural to feel the doubt and fear rise up within your heart, so just remember that everything unfolds as it should in perfect Divine timing. What the Universe delivers is always for the greater good of your ultimate soul expansion.
4. Don’t feel the need to explain yourself to others
If you happen to have a photo of Oprah glued on your vision board and someone questions you, feel free to ignore them and change the direction of the conversation. It’s no one else’s business what your goals, dreams, wishes and desires are. You are worthy enough to manifest whatever you want.
5. Take a photo of your vision board
An added method of making sure your subconscious mind is being imprinted and prepared to receive your desires is to take a photo of your vision board and use it as wallpaper on your phone or desktop. This provides an added way of ensuring that your awareness is activated in more ways than just one.
6. Trust in the Universe
Always use your vision board as an opportunity to believe beyond what you can see. The Universe loves you and is looking after your best interests. The Universe also trusts you implicitly, so will you return the favor?
7. Try a manifesting ritual
Choose from one of the themes on your board and try my Ancient Manifesting Ritual that is loved by thousands around the world. My secret 5×55 formula will help to raise your vibration and clear the blocks that get in the way from manifesting our desires.
8. (BONUS) Read Dear Universe
My latest book called Dear Universe has an entire section and story devoted to crafting the perfect vision board. It shares the story of how I manifested the flowers I really wanted for my wedding bouquet, despite being told it was impossible.
