Law of Attraction: Creating your vision board
The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. All thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.
A huge part of the Law of Attraction is setting your goals and taking action to achieve them - that’s where vision boards come in. it gives yourself a daily visual reminder; You know how when you decide to get a new car, you see that particular make and model everywhere you go? That’s because you have put your attention on something specific, and are unconsciously scanning the world for items that match it. It’s not that those cars were never there; it’s simply that you never noticed them before.
So it makes sense then, that if you put your attention on the images in your vision board (e.g., pictures of your future business, holiday or house) that the energy of that thing will more likely be in your awareness.
The more you surround yourself with the things you want to experience, the more you’ll actually get to experience those things in your life, because energy goes where attention flows.
“What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.” ~ Oprah
Follow the steps below to create your own Vision Board.
1. Get clear and specific
The process of choosing what to put on your vision board is simple yet meaningful.
Write down the answers to the following….
What do I want my life to look like a year from today?
What goals do I want to accomplish and why?
What makes me internally happy?
What does success look like?
2. Get creative
Now that you’ve reflected and have a picture in your mind of what you want to create, it’s time to visually create specific messages that matter to you. It may be helpful to use these categories as a base; relationships, career, finances, home, travel, growth (including spirituality, social life, education), and health. Also focus on the emotions; it’s about how you feel when you achieve this things, not just the things you want.
Now choose your format; you could go old school with a cork board and cut out images and words from magazines. If you want to get modern, create a digital vision board on Canva and save it to your computer and phone desktop.
3. Take action
Now that you’ve finished your board, pop it into a position where you will see it every day.
But things won’t come to you, just because you’ve put up some pictures. You need some aligned action.
Write down what steps you need to achieve these goals and have it somewhere handy (e.g. your phone notes, or your journal) so that you can regularly review.
