A dream board is integral to manifesting what you desire. To help you get the most out of the vision board technique, we have compiled this detailed guide.

Why Do I Need A Dream Board?

A dream or vision board is a space where you can collect pictures to help you visualize what you wish to manifest.

The key to unlocking a dream board’s power is that it has to be personal to you.

For instance, many people lust after a red Ferrari. But you can be different. If a car is solely a means of going from A to B, perhaps you will settle for a Japanese sedan. That’s fine; put Japanese cars on your dream board. Whatever images you put on your dream board should be highly personal to you.

How to Make a Vision Board?

Before you start, ensure you are in a relaxed frame of mind.

There are a few tools and materials you need to make a dream board. These include:

  • Thick card
  • Glue
  • Sticky notes
  • Pins

Alternatively, a fridge door and fridge magnets may do just as well.

Next, get a notebook and pen to write down what your heart desires.

Focus instead on what may be achievable over three to six months.

Don’t worry; you can create as many vision boards as you like later on.

Review the wish list you have just compiled. Check the wishes carefully and prioritize them in order of importance. You can return to the items further down the list later.

Next, add more detail to the wish list items you want to achieve over the next couple of months or so.

Remember that Japanese sedan you want? Write down the specifications you would like, such as the make, model, and color, on a sticky note, and stick the note on your dream board.

To make your dream board truly visual, you need to find pictures to illustrate your dreams.

Image Selection For Your Dream Board

Image Selection For Your Dream BoardYou could go old school and cut images out of newspapers and magazines. However, to be more specific, search Google Images and find that Terracotta Red Japanese sedan with the alloy wheels you want.

Whatever images you choose should touch your heart.

Every image should stir an emotion in you.

For instance, the pic of the Japanese sedan should inspire feelings in you. The same image might do nothing for others, but so long as it creates emotions and makes you think about the car, that’s perfect.

Don’t worry too much about the image quality or the viewpoint. The critical point is that it stirs emotions in your heart when you see it.

If you can find an image that does that, save it to your computer.

You are probably wondering why you need to spend time writing sticky notes when you can find an image.

It would help if you did both to engage your thinking process and your eyes. Indeed, fleshing out the details of our wishes is essential to finding the perfect image.

Now, take the color images and add them to your imageboard. If you can’t locate an appropriate image for every wish, don’t worry.

Sometimes, you may need to get creative. Say you want to have $100,000 in your bank balance within the next three months. In that case, random pics of dollar bills will suffice.

You can also photo-edit a check so that $100,000 is payable to you and then add it to your vision board. This check will feel more personal than an image of a dollar bill.

Well done! That’s your first dream board completed.

Place your board prominently so you will see it frequently. It could be the refrigerator door, in your living room, bedroom, or home office. It only matters a little so long as you will catch sight of your board frequently every day.

Vision Board versus Vision Video

Some people advise that it is preferable to make a video about your wish and watch it every night before going to bed.

The jury is still deliberating. Still, vision boards are excellent low-tech alternatives that are superior in many ways.

A vision video requires extra effort and reliance on technology.

Though you may feel the video is still personal to you and your dream, it is questionable if it is truly motivating. In reality, you are stuck in a loop that’s repeating itself.

Like any TV rerun, it could well cause negative feelings about the video and your dream board.

If this happens, the negativity is transmitted to the Universe, making manifestation more challenging.

Another reason is your frame of mind.

Your moods are changeable. You have good days and bad days.

Sometimes, you feel tired all day or feel a bit down.

On a bad day, it may take extra effort to sit and watch the video because you think it will motivate you.

However, this effort does not pay off because you are not in the best mood and are likely to feel disheartened afterward.

The unfortunate outcome is that the Universe picks up on these negative thoughts, and you attract only negativity in return.

Even if your intention is pure and you want to attract positive things into your life, that’s not how it operates if you have negativity in the back of your mind.

With a vision board, you do not need to make any additional effort. The board is there for you to see at all times.

Is It Okay To Show Others My Dream Board?

show others your dream board

The purpose of a dream board is for you to see it, get motivated, and transmit positive energy to the Universe. This requires a prominent spot so you can see the board as many times a day as possible.

The obvious downside is if you live with others, they can see it too.

Revealing your manifestation goals to others is typically not a good idea. Other people can be discouraging and ask too many questions.

But here’s a strategy you can use to avoid disclosing what your dream board is all about.

It’s okay to speak about the vision board in general terms. Just don’t let slip what your goal is.

If the questioning becomes too probing, be a politician, change the subject, ignore the question, or leave the room.

You can also keep your sticky notes elsewhere. Choose somewhere private where you spend time but not where the note is likely to invite questions from others.

Don’t Leave Large Gaps In your Dream Board

Another area for improvement with dream boards is their need to be more sparsely populated. A vision board with only one or two images is not a good idea. Avoid an empty board even if you only have a minimal number of goals you wish to achieve.

With dream boards, more is better. So, always spend time creating a busy-looking dream board.


By now, you should hopefully have a good idea about how to create the perfect dream board.

The key takeaway is that if your dream board is lacking, so too will your chances of making your dreams a reality.

Nothing in life comes easy, so work hard to fulfill your wish list.

Work hard on your dream board, and your dream board will work hard for you.

How Can You Improve Intimacy in A Relationship?

A manifestation dream board, also known as a vision board, is a powerful tool to help you visualize and achieve your goals and dreams. By creating a physical representation of your aspirations, you align your focus and energy towards manifesting them into reality. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating your own manifestation dream board.

Step 1: Set Your Intentions

Before you start, take some time to reflect on your goals and desires. What do you want to achieve in the next year, five years, or even longer? Consider various aspects of your life such as career, relationships, health, personal growth, and leisure. Write down your intentions clearly and concisely. This will provide a roadmap for selecting the images and words for your board.

Step 2: Gather Materials

To create your dream board, you’ll need the following materials:

  • A large piece of poster board or corkboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue, tape, or pins
  • Magazines, newspapers, and printouts
  • Markers, stickers, and decorative elements

Ensure you have a variety of sources to pull from so you can find images and words that truly resonate with your goals.

Step 3: Collect Images and Words

Go through your magazines, newspapers, and printouts, and cut out images and words that represent your intentions. Look for visuals that evoke positive emotions and reflect what you want to manifest. For example, if you’re aiming for career success, find pictures of people in your desired profession, office spaces, or symbols of achievement. If you seek improved health, look for images of vibrant, active individuals, healthy foods, and serene nature scenes.

Step 4: Arrange Your Board

Once you have a collection of images and words, start arranging them on your board. There’s no right or wrong way to do this; it’s a personal and creative process. You might group similar themes together or create a more abstract collage. As you arrange the elements, pay attention to how they make you feel. Your board should inspire and uplift you.

Step 5: Add Personal Touches

Enhance your dream board with personal touches. Write affirmations or motivational quotes that align with your goals. Use markers to draw symbols, borders, or doodles. Personalizing your board makes it more meaningful and connected to your unique aspirations.

Step 6: Place Your Board Where You’ll See It Daily

The key to a successful manifestation dream board is consistent visualization. Place your board in a location where you’ll see it every day, such as your bedroom, office, or living space. Spend a few moments each day looking at your board, visualizing your goals, and feeling the emotions associated with achieving them.

Step 7: Trust the Process and Take Action

While your dream board is a powerful visualization tool, it’s essential to combine it with action. Trust the process and stay open to opportunities that align with your goals. Take steps towards your dreams, no matter how small they may seem. The combination of visualization and proactive effort will amplify your manifestation power.


Creating a manifestation dream board is a fun and empowering way to bring your dreams to life. By setting clear intentions, visualizing your goals, and taking action, you align your energy with the universe to manifest your desires. Start your dream board today and watch as your aspirations unfold into reality.
