For the past five years, I’ve kicked off the New Year by creating a vision board (well except last year, because I was going through some stuff). Sometimes I’ll make one on my own and other times I’ll host a vision board party. There’s no vision board template that I use. But I’ve learned a few tips over the years on how to make a vision board of your dreams.
For 2022, I decided to go digital. As much as I love going through magazines, I just did not have the energy this time (thanks Covid!). So instead, I put on my blue light glasses and spent the weekend looking up images on my phone to create a digital vision board.
How to make a vision board online
An online vision board is much easier to create than a traditional vision board: a) You don’t need any materials aside from your phone or computer and b) You can search for specific images quickly versus spending hours flipping through magazines. There are vision board apps you can use. But honestly, it’s so simple (and I find more creative!) to do it on your own. Here’s how I did mine:
Set the space
Pick a seat that feels very comfortable. Turn on some relaxing or inspiring music. Light your favorite candle. And, if you can, turn on your “Do Not Disturb” on your phone.
Pick a Timeframe
This is one mistake I’ve made in the past. All my previous vision boards had no end date. This time, I got super specific and decided everything I’m manifesting is for 2022. You can get even more specific and make a vision board for the next 6 months or broader for the next 5 years. Whatever you decide, just pick a timeframe.
Set Your Categories
It’s much easier to organize your thoughts (and images!) when you divide up what you want to manifest into separate categories. For example, maybe this year you want to focus on career, love and travel or maybe it’s a new home, finances and hobbies. Before you start, make sure to think about your different categories and if it helps, write them down. I’m sharing mine in detail below (I made a lot!) for some ideas.
The more specific you are with your images, the better. For example, lets say you want to get engaged this year. Don’t put any engagement ring. Find one as close to the one you could imagine your partner putting on your finger. Or maybe you want to buy a new home this year. Search for an image of a style house that you can picture walking into every day.
Search, Screenshot and Save
I did my digital vision board on my phone, since it’s the device I look at the most. I started searching by each category. I did it directly in Google Images but you could also utilize Pinterest if that’s more your jam.
Every time you find an image that speaks to you, simply screenshot it. When you’re done, select all the images and add them to a new folder on your phone. I labeled mine 2022 Vision Board. This way, you can easily access it throughout the year.
If you’re a perfectionist like me, you can crop all the images to the same size to make everything uniform. Obviously this step is not necessary.
And there you have it! How to create a vision board online. It might seem like a lot but I wanted to get really specific with you. I promise it’s a super relaxing activity to do at home. And even though I’m sharing mine with you, there’s no need for anyone else to partake in your 2022 manifestation. Feel free to keep it to yourself. Remember, this is all about you and what you want in life.
