You probably hear positive statements swirling around you on a daily basis, meant to prop you up and propel you forward in life.

“The world is your oyster!” “Pursue your dreams!” “You can achieve anything!”

You might also, however, be one of the people for whom these words meant to encourage you to live your best life just don't connect with reality. Life feels full of insurmountable obstacles. The thought of pursuing your dreams, let alone seeing them through to manifestation, seems entirely out of reach.


The good news is that learning how to create a vision board can help!

What is a vision board?

A vision board is a collage of images meant to represent your ideal life. The process of making one can be simple, yet incredibly powerful tool for connecting authentically to your dreams and inspiring your journey toward fulfilling them.

By visioning your goals and most satisfying future with the help of these images, you can better focus your thoughts and energy on manifesting them using the Law of Attraction, i.e., "the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on."

Learning how to make your own version is simple!

All you have to do is collect images you feel accurately represent your goals, dreams and other symbolic aspirations. Print them or cut them out of magazines, pin or glue them to a large piece of construction paper or a cork board, and hang it in a place where you can easily see it on a daily basis.

Once your vision board is in place, here are three ways to turn your dreams into manifestations by activating the power of the Law of Attraction.


1. Focus your energy

Physics says that you, and the world around you, are all made up of energy at your most basic level. And this is where your power lies. You can interact with your energy through your thoughts and can actually shift it.

The Law of Attraction states that the more you focus your thoughts on something, the more you attract of it. This can happen in a positive or negative fashion.

For example, you may have noticed that if people around you are sick, and you focus on that sickness, pretty soon you end up sick as well. However, if you focus on vibrant health while everyone is sick, you attract more health to yourself and probably don’t get the bug.

So use your vision board to help focus your energy on the good things you want to attract into your life.

2. Give power to your dreams

How are the images on your vision board any better than those affirmations at the beginning of the article?

Well, when you have images of your dreams, you are now given a very specific destination on where to place your focus. And as Law of Attraction says: You get more of what you focus on.


The powerful thing is that with your image board, you have compiled all the goals you want to achieve in one place. All you now need to do is give it some attention and let the energy grow.

3. Be patient with results

Vision boards are not tools that will create big changes in a few days, but they often create tremendous impact over time. When you start to focus on your vision board for a few minutes a day, then you will soon notice subtle changes in your life.

For example, on one of my boards, I placed an image of a person in a chair out in nature, reading a book. My life was very busy at the time, and I really wanted more time to read.

Soon thereafter, a friend of mine invited me to join her book club. Not only did I have some accountability now to actually sit down and read, but I also gained some friends with whom to discuss the books.


Sometimes, nothing happens for quite a while. But this doesn’t mean your board is not working. The universe then works on its own timetable to deliver you what you asked for.

Focusing on your vision board activates the Law of Attraction; it sets energy in motion to manifest what you desire. And the more you connect with the energy you would like to create, the faster it can manifest.
