Tips for Building the Board
I tend to shy away from giving concrete advice on "how to make a vision board" because I feel that everyone responds to and absorbs visuals and information in different ways. Remember, the board itself is only a tool that is used to ignite your story and vision, so it doesn't really matter how it looks, as long as it takes your mind to that manifestation space and helps you to "marinate" or soak in your experience/s. If you are feeling stuck on this part of the process, check out some of these great tools and videos on setting up your own board.
Tools for Digital Boards:
Powerpoint or Keynote
There are many apps in the AppStore and Android store for Vision Boards
Physical boards can be glued onto poster board, or pinned onto corkboard. It can even be a book or journal! It's really up to you.
There are also different ways to organize your board, some people organize by theme, color, category, feng shui Bagua, emotion... it's really up to you and how you absorb and process visuals. Here are some sample videos out there:
Tips for Marination
Once you build your version of a board- you need to use it!
And actually, once you get really good at what you want, you may not even need your board anymore , you'll be able to visualize without the tool.
"Marination" - the act of soaking in your desires - needs to happen on a daily basis. It can be 90 seconds or 30 minutes, it doesn't matter so long as you train your brain to live our your dream - in the present- in your head and body.
Marination can come in many forms, but it all must be in present-tense as if you already are living it and it's almost a memory that hasn't yet happened:
Sit in front of your board and look at the image, and think of your experience
Daydream about your experience
If you are religious, you can pray about your experience
Write about your experience
