One of my favourite things that fill my vision board are QUOTES!! It’s a great way to keep you motivated. One of my favourite quotes that I ever put on my board was by Rumi and it said “what you are seeking, is seeking you”. It’s a reminder that the universe works with you!
Another beautiful quote that is still stuck to my wall is “Honour the space between no longer and not yet”. This quote always reminds me to appreciate the current moment. And to enjoy my growth as it happens instead of JUST focusing on the end game. As they say – it’s the journey that really counts right?
So what quotes could you put on there to inspire you? To remind you why you’re doing something? And also to help make your board a loving and patience space to remind you of all that you are right now and will be.
Another great idea for your vision board is to put some mantras or affirmations on there.
Things like – “I am enough” are great, loving reminders to yourself. Your vision board is often a place you’ll go to when you’re struggling to reach your goals. It’s a piece of work that reminds you of your WHY. Why are you doing what you’re doing? And it’s reminds us of how we’re going to feel when we achieve our goals.
So mantras & affirmations can be a real spot of encouragement when we need it most – and it’s amazing when it’s right there hangin’ on our vision board!

Another great thing to add to your vision board is an envelope! Yes, that’s right – an envelope. But when I say that, I’m thinking more a funky, birthday or celebration card. Not a plain old, hey here’s another bill kinda envelope. Look at the Kikki-K example below!
Now to answer the big question – why? Because you can put things in there!!
And it can become… you’re Holy Triangle.
This is a concept I came across in Gabrielle Bernstein’s The Universe Has Your Back. It’s a place where you surrender all your desires to the universe. I really like this idea of putting your goal in there and leaving it for the universe to deal with!
The steps are pretty simple. You write your goal/wish on a piece of paper and put it in there for a week. After a week, you burn it (in a safe place like the kitchen sink). This symbolises that we’re letting our goal go, for the universe to handle.
While she has a more of an altar style Holy Triangle, Gabby says your holy triangle can be anything you want. So why not on an envelope on your vision board. Let that be your altar!
It’s always fun to add a few objects to your vision board. Think things like the first letter of your name, or something from a memory that you loved like a train ticket.
Or, if you have a goal to travel somewhere, why not find a key ring of a monument or of a map to add to your board.
Wooden signs are another addition. There’s lots of home decoration that you can put on your vision board. Words that say family or love are easy to add. An example is this
Hello Wood Sign that I found on Amazon! The best part of these are they usually come unfinished. So you can decorate and color them in as you like.
Be creative with it! Add anything that makes you smile and represents your vision for your future.
So, to recap this post! Things that you can add to your vision board (that aren’t photos!) are:
- Envelopes (that you can turn into your Holy Triangle)
- Objects (like signs, magnets or key rings that symbolize a goal!)
Now to you! What things are on your vision board? What are your favourite words or quotes to put on there?
