2019 UPDATE: I originally wrote this article back in 2017, so I would love to give it an updated perspective.
I really want to emphasize the importance of FEELINGS.
Your feelings are always what construct 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.
And there is no better to do this than to create a vision board that will activate the feeling of joy in your heart.
Enjoy this article!
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, or experiences you desire?
Read on the discover the 7 Steps for Creating A Vision Board That Actually Works…
7 Steps for Creating A Vision Board That Actually Works
1. Place it in your constant awareness
Put your board where you’ll get to pass and see it often, so it can imprint itself into your subconscious mind.
Think about a wall, corner, or room in your home or even at your office that you visit every morning or at several points during the day; such as your bedroom dresser, within a picture frame in your hallway, or even in the kitchen.
Make sure that you choose a space that you have a loving or positive association with, and that doesn’t bring you stress instead.
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.
Gratitude helps to raise your vibration to a place of joy and pleasure, which will send powerful signals to the Universe to deliver your goodies a lot faster.
Simply face your board, visualize yourself having accomplished or attained whatever it is that you’ve put up there, and consciously thank the universe for hearing you, and having your back.
3. Remember the phrase: “This or something better”
It’s natural to feel the doubt and fear rise up within your heart when you think of what it is you desire in your life. But it’s important to remember that everything unfolds as it should in perfect Divine timing.
Trust that what the Universe delivers is always for the greater good of your ultimate soul expansion.
Not sure how? I created a powerful meditation called the Dear Universe Visualization. It helps you connect with all the power of The Universe to truly SEE and envision what’s possible for you.

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?
It’s important that you actively visualize what you intend to manifest so that your vision is “seen” by The Universe. Even better — practice a simple visualization meditation to tap in and tune into the power of The Universe as you envision your goals and desires.
Here's a free powerful meditation called the “Dear Universe Visualization” to help you truly see what's possible for you. Because when you say “YES,” the Universe responds.
7. Try a manifesting ritual
A Manifesting ritual is a practice that you regularly and consistently apply to amplify your conversation with The Universe — the same way one would maintain a meditation, yoga, or workout practice.
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.
The Ancient Manifesting Ritual would be an incredible compliment to your Vision Board, helping you to supercharge your vision with a powerful practice that will communicate your goals and desires to The Universe with deep and focused intent.
