How to Create a Vision Board Journal

There’s something seriously magical about putting your big ideas, dreams and goals down on paper.

Putting energy into a vision board will not only help you get crystal clear on what you want to create in your life but will also make your dreams become more actionable.

It’s like they say, sometimes you have to see it to believe it.

Having a visual reminder will help you stay focused and your vision board will also act as a benchmark for which you can measure your progress. It’s always incredible to revisit an old vision board and realize all the dreams that have since come true!

So, what’s a vision board journal you ask?

This year, we’re all about creating a vision board journal because, with its multiple pages, it can become a living thing that has space to shift and grow over time, just like you!

Plus, since poster-sized vision boards are large and in charge they often end up tucked away and out of sight which kind of defeats the purpose of this mighty manifestation tool. A vision board journal, on the other hand, will fit nicely into your purse or backpack so you can bring it along to those workshops and retreats on your bucket list.

How to Create a Vision Board Journal

1. Find Your Perfect Journal

Pick a journal that has an appealing color scheme and/or a fun design like this beautiful notebook from Denik (which was included in our Creative Vision Box - NOW SOLD OUT)!

2. Start Dreaming

Take a few moments to jot down some thoughts. Get quiet so you can tune into your inner wisdom and dream big. Let your imagination run and listen to your intuition to identify which goals align with your highest purpose.

3. Gather Supplies

Pull out some materials that you can play with as you get into your creative flow.

Here are some ideas of things you may enjoy working with:

  • Scissors
  • Magazine cut outs or pictures printed off the internet
  • Personal photos
  • Pens, markers, colored pencils
  • Glue or modge podge
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Dried flowers

    4. Give Yourself Permission to Create

    Sometimes we have big, hard-to-meet expectations of our creative process which can ultimately build resistance and block the flow of creativity. Give yourself permission to express yourself without expectation or judgement. Above all, give yourself permission to have fun.

    5. Let Your Creativity Flow

    Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Layout the images you’ve selected to tell a story
  • Organize objects based on your favorite color pallets
  • Write down your favorite quotes
  • Doodle
  • Try the Current Me vs Future Me Exercise from YouTuber Lavendaire
  • Make multiple vision boards for different aspects of your life. You could do one for short-term goals and another for long-term visions. You could express intentions for health, family, romance, community, finances, career, spiritual and personal growth, physical environment and/or leisure.

    6. Take Your Time

    Since you’re working in a journal, you don’t need to rush the process and do everything all at once. Pick one or two goals that feel like priorities and revisit others later. Let your vision board journal become a new self-care practice that you can do throughout the year.

    7. Ask. Believe. Receive.

    Set the law of attraction into action. Making your vision board journal is just the beginning of your manifesting journey. It’s how you get clear on what you want. It’s you asking for your dreams to come true.

    Next, sit down with your dreams and visualize what it will be like when you achieve your goals. Believe that it’s true and actually feel into it as if happening now. This is key to manifesting.
