How to Create a Vision Board Journal
A year ago
It’s like they say, sometimes you have to see it to believe it. Having a visual reminder will help you stay focused and your vision board will also act as a benchmark to measure your progress. It’s always incredible to revisit an old vision board and realize all the dreams that have come true!
So, what’s a vision board journal you ask? We’re all about creating a vision board journal because, with its multiple pages, it can become a living thing that has space to shift and grow over time, just like you!
Plus, since poster-sized vision boards are large and in charge, they often end up tucked away and out of sight which kind of defeats the purpose of this mighty manifestation tool. A vision board journal, on the other hand, will fit nicely into your purse or backpack so you can bring it along to those workshops and retreats on your bucket list.
How to Create a Vision Board Journal
1. Select a High-Vibe Journal
Pick a journal that has an appealing color scheme and/or a fun design and several pages.
2. Gather Supplies
Pull out some materials that you can play with as you get into your creative flow.
Here are some tools you may enjoy working with:
- Magazine cut outs or pictures printed off the internet
- Personal photos
- Pens, markers, colored pencils
- Glue or modge podge
- Washi tape
- Dried flowers
3. Connect to your Intentions
Make this a sacred ritual. Set the mood and tune into your highest truth. Get quiet so you can tune into your inner wisdom and dream big. Light a candle or some sage and tune into your higher self.
What do you really want to create in your life? Let your imagination run and listen to your intuition to identify goals that align with your highest purpose. Jot down any ideas as they come up.
Another perk of working with a journal is that you can make multiple vision boards for different aspects of your life like your health, family, romance, community, finances, career, spiritual and personal growth, physical environment and/or leisure.
Feeling ready to call in more prosperity, success, and wealth? Devote an entire session to homing in on your financial goals.
4. Give Yourself Permission to Create
Sometimes we have big, hard-to-meet expectations of our creative process which can ultimately build resistance and block the flow of creativity. Give yourself permission to express yourself without expectation or judgement. Above all, give yourself permission to have fun.
5. Let Your Creativity Flow
Here are a few other ideas to get you started:
- Lay out the images you’ve selected to tell a story
- Organize objects based on your favorite color palettes
- Write down your favorite quotes
- Make a list of short-term goals and another for long-term visions
- Try the Current Me vs Future Me Exercise from YouTuber Lavendaire
6. Take Your Time
Since you’re working in a journal, you don’t need to rush the process and do everything all at once. Pick one or two goals that feel like priorities and revisit others later. Let your vision board journal become a new self-care practice that you can do throughout the year.
7. Ask. Believe. Receive.
Set the law of attraction into action. Making your vision board journal is just the beginning of your manifesting journey. It’s how you get clear on what you want. It’s you asking for your dreams to come true.
Next, sit down with your dreams and visualize what it will be like when you achieve your goals. Believe that it’s true and actually feel into it as if it's happening now. This is key to manifesting!
