How do you make a vision board?
How you choose to make a vision board is up to you! My old way (which you will see in the pictures below) was to add some photos and stick them on my wall.
I always loved having my vision board on my wall. I felt like even if I wasn’t paying attention to it consciously, subconsciously, I was.
An easy way to make one is to find a vision board template. Pinterest is a HUGE resource. There are many vision board printables to help you decorate and guide you in creating your vision board.
Today, I’m showing you how I make a vision board using a wire memo board. This was one of the ways I discussed creating a vision board in my 10 Easy Ideas On How To Make A Vision Board post. But if you don’t have a printer or aren’t up for the printing and cutting, another option is to create a digital vision board.
So let’s get to it! I’m super excited to write today about how I’m doing this because this is the first time I’ve created a vision board template this way. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and learning about spirituality, our higher purpose, and manifesting and abundance. I’ve always found it challenging to see how and where they all come together. This vision board is all about that!
One thing I have learnt about vision boards is what you see, you really get! But, I have also known that hard what that what we ask for isn’t always what’s best for us or is what will make us happy.
Here is how I know this!
My personal example of how vision boards work
This is the vision board I created about 3 years ago.
The quotes you see in red there are quotes that I wrote nearly 10 years ago for my first vision board (that also came true!).
The part I really want to focus on is the small section below with these 4 goal images. These were the goals I had that these pictures represented:
Top left hand – this was a picture of a business class seat. I was adamant that I wanted to travel, and when I travelled, I wanted to fly business class.
Top right hand – I was trading online then, so I wanted this to represent my success. But really, I just wanted to run an online business from home.
Bottom left hand – this is the view from my aunties balcony in Italy. I wanted to live there for a few months. This was always a dream of mine.
Bottom right hand – I wanted this to represent my family and I, in Italy, eating altogether.
Now, this is what happened to me in 2017. I had to travel to Europe for alternative cancer treatment for my brother. Flying from Australia to Germany every 3 weeks was too much, so we decided to live in Italy with my family for a while (with the aunty whose balcony is in the photo).
After 6 months, we decided to return to Australia to see family. However, because my brother has cancer and epilepsy, we were worried if we flew Economy, he wouldn’t get any sleep, and we’d be risking him having a seizure. Since we had no travel insurance, it would be a problem if this happened! So instead, whoever flew with him, flew business class with him.
So everything I had put up on my wall ended up coming true in 2017! But, to be brutally honest, I was miserable.
Living away from home was really hard. I really missed my family and my partner. And since I wasn’t working, I couldn’t continue online trading.
So what did I learn from my vision board?
That a vision board should be about feelings, NOT goals. Because while we set goals that we think will make us happy, we don’t necessarily know that for sure. Often, we find that when we go with the flow and allow ourselves to be more open to finding new ways to go about this, we’re at our happiest.
This is what this printable vision board template is about.
