Creative exercise – Vision board

Published July 13, 2017, by Stina Axelson

I believe in the concept of Law of Attraction and that a vision board can help me visualise what I´d like to achieve. Me and a group of friends met up to create our first vision board, and I would like to tell you about the experience.

We decided to meet up in a café to have some adult crafting time. To keep ourselves focused and un-precious about our boards we decided to limit the time of the exercise. So, we all sat around in a circle, chatting, cutting and pasting images of things that inspired us for about 15 minutes.

My creation was called “Don´t die curious”. I pasted pictures that resonated for me and I wasn’t being too picky; I was just going with what felt right. After the time was up, we all talked about our vision boards and gave each other feedback.

How to create your own vision board

  1. Find a space, put on some music and prepare your favourite snack.
  2. Gather your supplies; Papers, magazines, Scissors, Markers, etc
  3. What is the one thing you want and need most at this moment, and what does that feel like?
  4. Find your images + words. Begin tearing and cutting out images that appeal to you. Start arranging them on your page. When it feels just right, go ahead and paste them to the page.

After we were done creating  we reflected and talked about our vision board. It was a great feeling sharing this moment with friends, so I really recommend doing it as a group.

When I got back home I placed the vision board on a door, so it will act as a reminder of that moment and what I want to achieve in the future.

I really recommend this exercise, you can create a board containing whatever motivates you or a daily affirmation. Use it as a visual reminder of what you would like to achieve in your life.

The exercise taught me the power of getting clear on what I need, want, and what I value and then taking action towards those intentions. It was a great feeling to talk about our “wants and needs” in life. You should try it too! Do you have any thoughts for your vision board?
