What Is a Vision Board?

A vision board is a powerful tool to help you visualize and manifest your goals, dreams, and aspirations for the future. It is essentially a collage of images, words, and affirmations that reflect your innermost desires for different aspects of your life, such as career, relationships, health, and personal growth. By creating a vision board, you can gain clarity on what you want to achieve and stay motivated.

Hacks for a Powerful Vision Board

Categorize Your Vision Board

Don’t just randomly collage pretty images together. Organize your board into sections. Each represents an aspect of your life in which you wish to improve, such as career, relationship, health etc. This will give you a clearer vision and dedication to an aspired outcome.

Include Images That Speak to You

Remember that your vision board is meant to address your subconscious mind. Therefore, add images that have a strong symbolic meaning to you. Even if that means including images that make no rational sense or look random. If they evoke a sense of positive excitement, they surely deserve a place on your vision board.

Make Your Vision Board Personal

You can make your vision board and goals more attainable by including your name, pictures of yourself, or personal aspects in it. This way your vision board will have a stronger impact on your subconscious.

Reframe Limiting Beliefs

Reflect on your limiting beliefs and rephrase them into powerful affirmations. Add them to your vision board and include a photo symbolizing your new outlook on life. For example: Turn “I am not good enough for a career as an artist” into “My art is needed and makes a positive impact.

Hang Your Vision Board Up

It’s important to display your vision board in a prominent location. Find a spot where you frequently pass by and place it there so that you can view and connect with it daily. For example, you can hang it near your bed. This way, you can look at it before going to sleep and immediately after waking up.

How to Host a Vision Board Party

1.) Welcome and Reflection

Make sure to open your vision board party with welcoming words. Tell your guests about your intentions to throw a vision board party and give them a glimpse of what to expect. You can also hold a reflection circle with your guests. Everyone reflects on their past year, highlighting successes and areas for improvement. This will help you let go of old habits and patterns so that you can open yourself up to new perspectives and ideas that will inspire you.

2.) Setting Your Intention

After welcoming your friends and reflecting on the past, it’s time to encourage your guests to focus on the future. You can do this by setting up intentions for the coming year together.

Get an idea for your personal vision board – what do you wish to manifest? What areas of your life do you want to improve? A great way to tune into your visions is through guided meditation. Take 5–10 minutes as a group to contemplate your future.

Either you guide your guests through the meditation or you play one of many meditation videos that can be found on the Internet.

3.) Prepare Soulfood (& Drinks) 

Your vision board party should be uplifting and nourishing on every level. Don’t indulge in unhealthy junk food. Instead, prepare healthy and fresh snack options to keep energy levels up without causing a sugar crash.

Fresh fruit, nuts, green salads, vegetable sticks with dips, and yogurt parfaits are good choices. Choose easy-to-eat finger foods that won’t be too messy and allow you to focus more on the event rather than complex catering.

Alternatively, you can instruct every guest to bring a healthy bite to the vision board party.

Also, staying hydrated is essential for creativity and focus. A well-stocked hydration station with infused water, tea, refreshing mocktails, or warm cocoa is key.

4.) Put an Affirming Playlist Together

For a successful vision board party, it is crucial to create an environment that fosters positive energy and encourages manifestation. One way to achieve this is by playing affirming tunes.

The right music can help put your guests in the right mindset for visualizing their goals and aspirations. So, be thoughtful when selecting the songs for your playlist and ensure that they align with the overall purpose of your vision board party.

5.) Provide Space 

Make sure your guests have enough space to create their vision boards. You can either gather around one long table or, if more privacy is needed, help everyone find a comfortable nook. Check that all materials are sufficiently available so that everyone can fully immerse themselves in the creating process.

6.) Create a Collective Vision Board

One fun and engaging activity that you could add to your vision board party is providing a large canvas for a group vision board. This canvas can serve as a representation of your general collective affirmations. Every guest can come together and express their wishes, dreams, and goals. Adding a collective vision board to your party can make it extra special and memorable, while also creating a sense of togetherness and an uplifting atmosphere for everyone involved.

7.) Reflect and Share

Encourage your guests to share aspects of their vision boards with the group, if they feel comfortable doing so. Alternatively, do a feedback session to allow your guests to reflect on their experience. Maybe it was their first vision board party. It can be helpful to listen to how they felt and what the process of creating a vision board was like.

8.) Connect With Your Vision Boards

Consider a wonderful way to wrap up your vision board party by gathering everyone together for a final meditation. This is a perfect opportunity for each guest to take a few moments to reflect on their individual goals, as well as to connect with the collective energy of the group.

Encourage everyone to look at their vision boards, and take a moment to relax in a sense of gratitude for all the opportunities that are yet to come. It can help solidify each person’s commitment to bringing their visions to life.

9.) Prepare a Little Souvenir

Think of something to give your guests as a reminder of the vision board party, the time they spent together, and the goals they set for themselves.

You can set up a jar with affirmations written on slips of paper. At the end of the night, invite each guest to pick one out of the jar as a personal mantra for the upcoming months. This helps them to stay connected with their vision boards and stay motivated as they work towards achieving their goals.
