Every year I think it is so important that I take what ever I am doing to the next level, so this year because of my homie Nina brown I decided to make a Vision board.

A vision board (also called a Treasure Map or a Visual Explorer or Creativity Collage) is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines.

The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, and people you want in your life, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

Vision boards add clarity to your desires, and feeling to your visions.

There are several methods you can use for creating your vision board. I’ve written about each one below. You can choose which one works best for you, depending on where you find yourself on this path of creating your life.

No matter which method you choosing, have a little ritual before you begin your vision board. Sit quietly and set the intent. With lots of kindness and openness, ask yourself what it is you want. Maybe one word will be the answer. Maybe images will come into your head. Just take a moment to be with that. This process makes it a deeper experience. It gives a chance for your ego to step aside just a little, so that you can more clearly create your vision.
Put on soft music. My favorite music for activities like this is always live music, but I also like to hear a little Mary J, Monica, Jay Z, and Lauren HIll unplugged . I love these CD’s but make sure the music you are listening  keep your mind quiet.

5 Steps To Creating A Vision Board:


Step 1: Go through your magazines you dont want anymore and tear images and words from them. Make a big pile of images and phrases and words that you feel inspires you .

Step 2: Go through the images and begin to lay your favorites on the board. Eliminate any images that no longer feel right. This step is where your intuition comes in. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense how the board should be laid out. For instance, you might assign a theme to each corner of the board. Health, Job, Spirituality, Relationships, for instance. Or it may just be that the images want to go all over the place. Or you might want to fold the board into a book that tells a story. At my retreats, I’ve seen women come up with wildly creative ways to present a vision board.

Step 3: Glue everything onto the board. Add writing if you want. You can paint on it, or write words with markers.

Step 4: Make sure you give no thought to anything negative, or anything you don’t want in your life. Like if you dont want to be around someone do put there pictures on your board. Do not give anything negative that energy.

Step 5: Hang your vision board in a place where you will see it often.
