Everyone has a different way of visualising, but the one method that has worked best for me is a really simple one. Twice a day, when my body is in a heightened state – early in the morning and after a workout – I focus on the vision board.
I lie back on my bed and I stare at the board one section at a time. You look at the images, but you focus on how you would feel if those images turned into reality. I wasn’t always using the strategy, but it has become a part of my routine as I have started combining my manifestation and meditation efforts.

FEELING is the king in the art of manifestation so, when you think of your goals, a sense of achievement and complete happiness should be coursing through your body. My board had pictures of Vienna and I would look at them for a minute, then I would close my eyes and in my head, I would conjure up the same place as the one in the picture. I visualise myself as standing in the same place with a nice, cool breeze touching my hair.
The more I focus, the more I can feel the happiness, wonder, and awe of being in a place so beautiful. Once I have the picture in my head, I focus on the feeling with every fibre of my being. The more I focus, the more real it seems to me.
In your vision, touch the things around you and feel as you would if you were actually touching them. Basically, make the vision as close to reality as you can, and FEEL as you would if it really were your reality. Also, I am traveling to Vienna in April along with every other place that was on my board.
If you are focusing on that house you want, think of how you would feel if you really owned that house. The happiness of getting to decorate the space of your dreams should be so immense that you should be able to focus on it with a single-minded determination. This shouldn’t be hard, but it takes practice.
As I said, the vision board is like an anchor for your vision. It is a close reflection of your dreams.
