What is A Vision Dream Board and How Can It Change Your Life?

If you can dream it, you can do it.

A vision board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of your dreams and all of the things that make you happy. It can also be called a dream board, treasure map or vision map.  Vision boards are a great way to make you feel positive, and are helpful if you are using the law of attraction. A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. In our digital age, you can also create vision boards to display on your computer screen and mobile devices.

Vision boards are based on the Law of Attraction

The idea that your mode of thinking directly affects what the universe gives you. If you put positive mental energy into the universe, you’ll be the recipient of positive outcomes. The Law of Attraction is not new. Before The Secret, there was the book, Creative Visualization which described the same phenomenon.

Creating your own vision board is considered the key to success

It is not enough to simply have a positive mental attitude. The secret to achieving your goals is to dream about positive, focused, and specific goals. Convert your vision boards to action boards. Dream about it, envision how you will realistically do it or get it, and then make it happen.  Making use of vision boards serves several purposes, some of which include helping you to:Identify your vision and give it clarity. Reinforce your daily affirmations. Keep your attention on your intentions.

Daily Affirmations – Once you dream it, the next step is to believe it

Once you dream it, the next step is to believe it. In addition to images, vision boards can include words, phrases or sentences that affirm your intentions. Somehow, we must silence the mindchatter that plagues us all every minute of every waking hour. You know that little voice in your head that never shuts up, the one that supports and promotes all your limiting beliefs by repeating an endless litany of every shortcoming you could possibly have (and some you couldn’t possibly have) and every reason why you can’t or shouldn’t or won’t ever be, do or have what you really want. Affirmations are that little voice’s worst enemy. Affirmations express who you really are, release you from those limiting beliefs, and allow you to know that the possibilities really are unlimited.

A Vision Board Keeps you Focused

Another key purpose that vision boards serve is to help you stay focused. It isn’t difficult to start each day with a positive attitude – until you get out of bed. How quickly that fresh “new me” attitude can sink back into oblivion beneath the tasks and challenges of everyday life. How can you possibly remain focused on any goal while people and circumstances constantly pull you in dozens of directions at once? By using a vision board, of course. No matter what happens during your day, your vision board is a constant reminder of where you intend to be. Appealing to you on both conscious and subconscious levels, a vision board can work wonders toward keeping your mind focused on your goal, your attention on your intentions, and your life headed in the direction you choose.
