The Importance Of A Vision Board

By Darlene Siddons

Most of us have heard of treasure mapping, it is where you make a collage of pictures or words of things you wish to do, items you want, the life you want to live, the things you want to do in your life.

A vision board is a powerful visual tool to set your intentions in place and they are so simple that primary school children can learn to make them in 5 minutes or less. They are great family projects and are usually made on large poster boards with a collage of pictures of the items the family wants or strives for. The whole family can get involved in the vision of what the family wants to accomplish, for this reason I like to call them Vision Maps, as it takes everyone’s mind on their own journey so to speak.

Vision Boards are destined to become the most financially life changing tool of our times as they can be the key to attracting everything you want into your life. They are a terrific tool that combines all of these success and motivation techniques that are available to us today and keep them all in one spot where we can view them on a daily basis. In a way they are like a time capsule and you can make new updated ones and watch your growth and the things in your life manifest, it is a perfect way to keep track of your growth and progress.  

With all the new technology available now the actual vision board is rather obsolete as now there is an even a more catchy and fun way to view your vision board and that is on a video; which I am going to call Vision Map Video. What you can do is take all the things you have on your vision board and make a movie out of it with positive affirmations between the slides. This way you can get better, clearer pictures. The actual physical vision boards can be frustrating because it's hard to find the exact picture you want quickly from magazines and when pasted on, it can mess up your vision board. It is time to throw out the scissors, glue and stacks of old magazines and move into the digital age.

Now you can just turn on your computer; watch your vision map and not only are you watching something fun and catchy you are manifesting all the things you want in your life. It will easy to get your kids to watch it also as we are definitely in the age visualization and like to watch things visually.

Vision Maps are one of the most powerful tools in the deliberate creator's toolbox. They are the best way to visualize what you intend to manifest in your life and are powerful tools when used in conjunction with the law of attraction. It is also a great way to help keep your dreams in front of you. You can see a Vision Map by visiting my website and I personalize them to suite your wants and needs. This is the new digital age version of the vision board, treasure mapping whatever we have called them before, move into the digital age with Vision Map Videos.

With so many things going on in our life some times it is hard to keep our focus, so this is a great way to keep us focused on abundance, joy, or a relationship that is important to us.  

Vision Boards are too large to carry around, but we always have a computer close by these days, so there is your Vision Map right there nice and handy to watch any time you need it. They should be watch at least once a day, twice a day makes the manifestation speed up and things happen quicker.

    • This is a fantastic post.  I have been meaning to make that vision board, but it’s still not here.  I am going to make it a family project for me and my daughter and get it going tomorrow.  Thanks for the post.

    • Hi Darlene,
      I have a huge passion for vision boards. I often have women on my retreats make them to represent the future they want to create! I led a woman’s weekend retreat that ended yesterday and the vision boards that came out of that retreat were not only pictures of what they want to manifest but real works of art. Beautiful enough to hang on their wall!
      I imagine digital is an amazing way to go but let’s not through out all of the scissors and glue just yet. I love the meditative way of thumbing through the magazines to find the perfect picture. Only one person at a time uses a computer but a whole wonderful group of women can sit around a table and collage.
      In my world I would like to have both!

    • I like looking through magazines to create my visual boards because it does take a bit a time which is good for me.  I find it rather calming.  I know some people like listening to books on tape, which I have never gotten around to doing (there is just something about having the book in my hand . . . I can highlight, make comments in the margins, etc).

      I guess I never thought of using a computer to create a digital board.
