A vision board to what a lot of people call a life map, treasure map, or collage, is simply a poster board on which you paste images that you’ve cut out from various magazines (or others).
Thinking about this the other day I’ve realized I’ve never intentionally made a vision board, but I’ve done plenty of collages throughout my art classes. They almost always related to something personal except the time I made one about Gael Garcia and Diego Luna (I swear I’m obsessed with those two!) in the club dancing with a one legged girl! True story. I used to love to incorporate pretty fabric scraps, recycled items, and gold leaf. Sadly I don’t have any examples to give you. All my “good” artwork has been gifted to people I love. I digress my collages were a reflection of my many visions in life. So I encourage you to make one too! After all I like to think we’re a super-charged manifesting magnet for this universe.
-Poster board (or cork board, blank canvas, or other surface you desire)
-Pictures (photographs, online images, etc.)
Optional: a picture of you
-Glue or tape (I prefer glue)
You might want to sit in a quite space area to tune in with your inner self. I recommend sitting quietly with lots of openness to concentrate on the things you want to manifest. Here a lot of you might decide to go with a theme, or go with the images you saw running through your mind. Perhaps instead you rather make a list of dreams and goals (short or long term). Don’t forget to turn some music on (whatever you like)
There are no rules but these are the steps I recommend to get you started:
Step 1. Having your materials in front of you. Go through magazines, whatever your images are coming from, and tear them out. It might be easier to tear them out for now and glue later.
Step 2. Sort through your images, you might’ve gone wild and have one too many, select your favorite ones (or most important). Throw out those you “no longer need” in your vision. Begin cutting – you can’t go wrong here
Step 3. Optional: Paste yourself in the center of your board. Choose to display a time where you felt the happiest! Or looked your best!
Step 3. I prefer to layout my images before gluing them down, but I’ve seen others go-with-the-flow kind of deal and glue as they select their images. Try adding words with sharpie on top of images or writing on the side – sort of like a side note
Step 4. Choose to place or hang your vision board in a place where you’ll see it every day.
Here’s another alternative you could do. Create a digital vision board, have fun, share with friends and family (or keep private)! http://dreamitalive.com/home.aspx
