7 Ways to Use a Vision Board

As the year winds to its end, it is time to start thinking about your planning for the new year. One excellent tool for planning is the vision board.

7 Ways to Use a Vision Board

The beauty of a vision board is that it works on your subconscious to help lift your mental vibration and attract the opportunities you seek. You can think of it as a woo-woo tool, but it is also a very practical tool because it works with your reticular activating system (RAS) to refocus what it brings your attention to.

There are many ways to use a vision board as a planning tool. The top reasons that people create them are to attract more money, loving relationships, and better health. Here are seven ideas for using a vision board.

1. The Travel Vision Board

Many people love to travel and have dreams of visiting exotic locations. Using a vision board to attract travel opportunities can make this dream come true and sometimes in ways that you do not expect.

How to Create Yours

  1. Select your dream destination. For this example, I’ll use Thailand.
  2. In a journal or on a piece of paper, articulate your reasons for wanting to travel there.
  3. Collect images of that location and that evoke your reasons for wanting to travel there. For our Thailand example, you could collect images of
    • Golden temples
    • Beaches with beautiful white sand and crystal-clear water
    • Spicy food, fish and fresh fruits not available in your country
    • Flowers of every color that are abundant in Thailand, such as orchids.

When you decide your dream place to visit, don’t be surprised if someone offers to take you or that you win a trip there. Vision boards put our intention out to the universe and in kind, the universe will answer, sometimes in mysterious ways.

2. The Money Vision Board

Let’s face it: We all need money. So we naturally desire it. And, in this world money can open all kinds of doors for us. However, if you want your vision board to work well, you need to make sure that you are asking the universe for money with good intentions behind it.

How to Create Yours

Collect images of money. One very powerful image you can use as the center of your vision board is stacks of gold coins. People are affected by the color of gold and the weight of a gold coin in their hand.

That said, use a variety of images for visualizing money on your vision board, such as coins, bills, and gems. The colors of all these will help to stir up positive emotions and spark your imagination.

You also may want to include images of things you want to buy with that money, such as a new wardrobe, your dream car, and a nice house. Again, these images can stir up positive emotions and excitement that energize your intentions for the board.

3. The Better Health Vision Board

You can use a vision board to see a healthier you. You can use the vision board to help you with weight loss, to help you overcome an eating disorder, or simply to inspire you to make better choices for your body. Of course, don’t use a vision board alone if you have a medical health problem. Use is to supplement what your doctor recommends.

How to Create Yours

  1. Collect images of people who are healthy, but not in an extreme in any way. Don’t use images of bodybuilders (unless that is your goal) for that might be an ideal you don’t really need to achieve (and perhaps can’t achieve given your specific health status). Instead use images of happy, healthy people doing fun activities.
  2. For text motivation, include phrases like:
    • “I feel wonderful, fully recovered.”
    • “I give myself permission to eat healthy, tasty food.”
    • “I no longer compare myself to others.”

Your health goal is possible. Using the Law of Attraction and vision boards, along with professional advice, can bring about the changes you desire.

4. The Better Relationship Vision Board

Everyone wants a loving relationship. You can use a vision board to create that for yourself. In fact, I’ve used this one to attract my husband.

How to Create Yours

  1. Collect images of people doing things that you would want to do with your partner. This could be pictures of people having a picnic by the river, in a dance class together, or holding each other in a loving way.
  2. Include specific text that you want for your relationship. Examples include:
    • “We love and respect each other.”
    • “We love to do things for each other.”
    • “We always talk things out calmly and solve issues right away.”

You can attract the person you desire into your life, without going on dating sites or asking friends for recommendations. Although I know people who have found lasting relationships over the internet, I’ve had the opposite experience. I met my husband doing something we both enjoy—Toastmasters. So, be yourself, do what you love, and use a vision board to clarify and magnify your desires.

5. The New Job or Career Vision Board

Everyone wants a job that makes them feel fulfilled. Plan out what you want from a job and what you will bring to the table.

How to Create Yours

If you want to become a nurse but currently work in retail, then you will need images of nurses going through training and providing special care to people.

On your vision board, write down why you want to be a nurse. Did you have someone who was treated specially by a nurse and you felt very appreciative of what they did? Do the feelings of giving comfort to the sick fill you with joy?

Write those down and start seeing yourself going to nursing school, excelling and getting a job that brings much value to the world.

Apply these same ideas for whatever you want your new job or career to be.

6. The Vacation Home Vision Board

Do you love to get away from it all? Would the idea of owning a cottage by a lake with a dock fill you with joy and happiness? For many people, the answer is, “Absolutely!” You can attract the vacation home of your dreams using a vision board.

How to Create Yours

  1. Find the images that illustrate the kind of vacation home you desire. This includes both images of the inside and outside of this home, as well as the environment around it.
  2. Write down what this vacation home brings to you. It could be the smells of the forest, the animals that you will see and the birds that will sing. Does a swim in a cool lake on a hot day, fill you with excitement? Make that part of your vision board.

Be very specific about size, construction, and color and you can be certain that vacation home with a purple door will be yours.

7. The Fitness Vision Board

Perhaps your health goals are specific to physical fitness or even winning trophies. You can build a vision board around any area of physical fitness.

How to Create Yours

What is your specific physical fitness goal? For example, maybe you want to become fit and able to protect yourself. You could build a vision board around taekwondo.

  1. Find images of people performing taekwondo, breaking boards and winning tournament trophies.
  2. Add images of healthy food and drinks because you want to be physically fit in order to perform.
  3. Add in text about feeling fit, powerful and fully alive.

See yourself going through the belt stages and doing so well, that you earn that black belt in no time. Again, you can apply these same ideas for whatever your physical fitness goal is.

What Will Your Vision Board Be?

Whatever goal you want to achieve, you can create a vision board for it. These are just seven of the multitude of types of vision boards you can create. So, gather old magazines and a large piece of cardboard and start dreaming!
