I stopped creating vision boards two years ago. At the time, I was tired of putting my hopes and dreams into a grade school art project. You see, being well versed in the Law of Attraction I knew I was doing everything right. I’d gotten clear, set my intentions, and was only cutting and pasting what resonated. Yet, year after year, the relationship, the money, and the career continued to elude me. So I stopped.
Instead of building elaborate vision boards, I developed a ritual practice for New Year’s Eve. These aren’t your grandma’s rituals mind you. Each one was fun, creative and a bit silly designed to help me call in the love, abundance, and joy I wanted in the new year. Where vision boards failed me, rituals never led me wrong.
Looking back on these last two years, I learned a very valuable lesson.
Apply those actions to anything you are trying to manifest no matter the tool you use.
Incidentally, I’m trying my hand at vision boarding again this year using the knowledge I’ve gained. While I doubt I’ll have a Cardi B, Serena Williams, or Meghan Markle year, bich I might.
How to Create a Vision Board that Works
- Get crystal clear on what you want, need, and value. Then take it a step further and figure out how you want to feel when your visions manifest. Write them down.
- Work through any doubts, habits, or limiting beliefs standing between you and your vision. You cannot manifest what you don’t believe you deserve, so heal your shit.
- Trust the process and surrender. You cannot take inspired action if you don’t surrender and allow inspiration to come. So stop praying on it, meditating on it, and obsessing over it and let it happen.
It should go without saying that you still have to set goals that align with your vision and take steps IRL to make them happen. Your dream guy isn’t going to knock on your door and no one will hire you if you don’t at least tell someone you’re looking. Remember faith without works is a waste of all our time.
I’ll keep you guys updated on how my vision boardt goes this year.
