What is Manifestation?
Manifestation is the idea that you can attract anything you want into your life by focusing on it with positive thoughts and emotions. It’s based on the law of attraction, which states that like attracts like. In other words, what you think and feel, you become.
It is also in line with the law of compensation. Which states energy comes back to you in equal measure to the energy you put out.
What is a Vision Board?
One of the most popular and effective ways to practice manifestation is by creating a vision board, also known as a manifestation board or a dream board.
A vision board is a collage of images, words and symbols that represent your desired outcome. It helps you visualize your dream more clearly and keep it in your mind every day.
It should not be confused with a mood board which is a board used for interior design.
What You’ll Need to Make a Manifestation Vision Board
Before you make a vision board, you’ll need to gather some materials. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A large poster board or canvas. You can use any size or shape you want, but make sure it’s big enough to fit all your images and words.
- Magazines, newspapers, books, flyers, brochures or any other source of images and words that relate to your dream. You can also print out pictures from the internet or use your own photos.
- Scissors, glue, tape, pins to cut and stick your images and words on your board.
- Markers, stickers, glitter or anything else to add color and flair to your board.
- A quiet and comfortable space where you can work on your board without distractions.
How to Make a Manifestation Vision Board
Now that you have everything you need, it’s time to make your vision board. Here are the steps to follow:
1. Set Your Intention Before You Start Cutting and Pasting.
Take a moment to think about what you want to manifest. Be as specific as possible.
For example, if you want to travel the world, think about where you want to go, when you want to go, for how long, who with and what you want to do there.
Really get into the feeling of it, feel as if it is already happening.
Now write down your intention on a piece of paper or in your journal.
2. Find Your Images and Words.
Go through your magazines and other sources you have gathered and look for images and words that match your intention.
Cut out anything that resonates with you and makes you feel excited and inspired.

Trust your intuition and have fun.
3. Arrange your images and words on your board.
Once you have all your images and words cut out, start arranging them on your board.
You can do this in any way you like. Group them by any criteria that makes sense to you. For instance, you can do it by by color, shape or the feeling it gives you.
You can leave some space between them or overlap them as much as you want. The important thing is that your board reflects your vision and feels good to you.
4. Glue or Pin Your Images and Words on Your Board.
When you’re happy with how your board looks, glue or pin everything in place. Make sure everything is secure and won’t fall off easily.
