Purpose of a vision board
The purpose of a vision board is to create your own oasis of positivity. Design a reality that makes you feel happy and fulfilled by making your dreams and desires come true. Besides creating a vision board is a way to actually plan out your goals and what you want out of life. So you can work towards them and ensure that they happen. Vision board helps to keep you focused on your goals. Since you will see the board most days, this will prompt you to visualize your perfect life. Through the Law of Attraction, visualization can help you make sure you are doing things that will help you achieve your goal.
How does the law of attraction work?
The Law of Attraction states that you attract into your life whatever you focus on. So, whatever you give your energy and attention to will come back to you. So, if you stay focused on the good and positive things you want to achieve, you will automatically attract these things into your life. Let’s apply this to vision boards. If you focus on your dreams and goals by seeing them laid out every day they are more likely to happen. Make sure that when you are creating your vision board, you are selecting realistic goals that you want to achieve.
Why do vision boards actually work? Science behind the law of attraction
Cutting edge science has recently proved what people have intuitively known and experienced for thousands of years. Thoughts are able to materialize. It has been proven experimentally, that every thought is made up of energy and it has its own unique frequency. Every single thought you are thinking of in your mind emits a vibrational frequency. Radiating into the Universe it interacts with the material world, and creates a new reality. “What you think, you create. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you become.”
It’s a well-known fact that on a quantum level all physical objects and all living beings consist of energy and have their own vibrational frequency. This frequency allows us to connect to the energy of the Universe shared by everything on Earth.
You can become a master of your reality by simply changing your thought patterns. We all need a reminder to think positively. Here is when a vision board comes in handy. Creating a vision board helps you to concentrate on your desires and dreams rather than everyday problems. The way you perceive the Universe determines your reality. Including your physical and emotional well-being, surrounding people etc. They say – “It’s limitless what the universe can give when you realize that thoughts become things.”
Neurologists from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at the Institute of Neurology in London have made an interesting discovery. They noticed that people who are able to visualize a better future have more chances to bring this image into life. Therefore the vision board is recognised to be a great visualization tool.
As far back as 391 BC, the great Greek philosopher Plato said that “likes tend towards likes”. Meaning that “likes attracts like” and “good attitude attracts kindness and sympathy towards the person who is spreading it”. Scientists find the explanation of this phenomenon in mirror neurons. These are the neurons that replicate or “mirror” the behavior we observe in other people.
When you are happy you vibrate on a high frequency. When someone sees you radiating good vibes it induces positive response in their brains. In other words, they are mirroring your attitude and subconsciously start acting positively towards you as well.
While studying the brain’s emotional center – amygdala, scientists found out that this law’s working both ways. Being a source of fear and anxiety, you induce the same feelings in surrounding people. This is another evidence that negative thinking can block your connection with the Universe. Which will ultimately interfere with your well-being, success and relationships.
Now that we’re backed up by science it’s time to have some fun and check out the ideas for a vision board.

After you have gathered all your material, sort through what you want to include on your board and put it to one side.

If you are going to include anything like drawings or lights, then ensure you know where these will be going before you stick everything down.
You can also create a vision board online. This requires less work and allows you to do it all electronically.

You can attach the board to the wall either by hanging it on a nail or sticking it on with sticky strips which are double sided. Depending on how heavy your board is you need to make sure the strips are going to hold it.
