You can make vision boards any time, but close to the New Year is when most people start to think about what they want to manifest in the coming year and they create their vision boards.
There are vision board parties where you can meet (in non-pandemic years) and cut out images with some friends to create your board.
There are even online apps for vision boards and blog posts about it galore.
But, do you find yourself wondering if vision boards even work or if they a bunch of crap?
If you watch a movie like The Secret (the 2006 version), it makes you think you can just cut out a bunch of pictures of fancy cars and houses, put it by your bed and your desk, and then just “envision” it until it comes to be.
Or you may have heard the now famous Jim Carrey story about how he wrote himself a check for 10 million dollars, dated it, and by the time the date arrived, he had made the money.
But for most of us, it doesn’t work that way.
Why vision boards can fail you.
Simply surrounding yourself with images usually isn’t enough.
There’s nothing wrong with it, I encourage you to do it if you want to, but without the “inner work” the visions can’t get through all the dense energy.
In other words, there are inner forces at work that can sabotage your beautiful vision board… and those things need to be dealt with to allow it through.
How to increase your ability to manifest instead.
I have a different way of looking at vision boards and New Year’s Resolutions that are long-lasting and it works. I’d like to share it with you.
To understand why I have this different approach, it’s important to look at the sabotaging factors that are coming between you and your envisioning!
Here are some obstacles that counteract your vision board manifestations and how to heal it:
1. Shadow Energy can block your manifestations.
Shadow energy is the yin and yang for light work. If there’s light there is dark, so shadow energy is the dark side of it.
This doesn’t mean it’s negative or bad, it just means it can block what you’re trying to create in your life if you don’t acknowledge it (see Episode 207 of the Aligned & Unstoppable Podcast : How Shadow Work Ignites Your Power Source for a more detailed discussion about it).
If you put that you are a famous author on your vision board, but you have deep-seated insecurities that you aren’t a good writer – it acts as an energy to counteract your goal.
Learning to look at your shadows and explore why you feel that way is important for the law of attraction and what you are trying to manifest.
In the case of Jim Carrey and his $10 million check, when he tells the story it seems like he fully believed he was worth receiving the $10 million for acting.
But if he had a conflicting shadow belief such as “true artists don’t accept money for their work”, he likely wouldn’t have been paid $10 million.
Do you see how this works?
I also want to remind you that we often aren’t aware of these beliefs until we dig deeper. It’s one of the reasons I created an entire digital library of meditations devoted to mindset and manifestation in the Mastery and Ascension Membership.
Usually, we discover we have a limiting belief when we hit a wall in achieving our goals.
It doesn’t mean the vision board idea is flawed, it just means that if you have a competing belief it can block the image from coming to fruition.
2. Karma can interfere (join my free Karma Cleanse!)
Karma is another energy that can interfere with your ability to manifest, vision board or no vision board.
If something is blocking your energy it’s going to show up when you are manifesting.
Hard truth moment: We manifest the good and the bad!
We really want to be able to set goals and achieve them rather than have old energies come up and block those goals.
Cleansing your karma is just as important as smudging your home, cleaning out clutter, or even cleaning old food out of the fridge.
You need to create a clean slate once and awhile and I highly recommend my free karma cleanse.
I do it every year and you can sign up to be notified when I go live for 2021 here:

With this free Karma Cleanse, I explain how to journal and clear the energy that’s blocking you from manifesting what you’re wanting.
You can do the karma cleanse all year long. Anytime you feel you need it to help open you up to new opportunities and awareness.
3. Short-Lived Intentions (like New Year’s Eve Resolutions)
The last thing that gets in the way of using vision boards for goal setting is what I call the short-lived intentions.
These are the New Year’s Eve resolutions like “I’m going to go to the gym more” that are often forgotten by the time February rolls around.
The problem with these type of goals are that they are matter of fact and the law of attraction responds so much more easily to feelings.
If you do want to set resolutions and use a vision board, try putting images of how you want to feel.
Pictures of someone loving exercising, meditating, drinking green juice, or money falling from the sky.
Evoke the feeling that goes with the thing you want to manifest. Emotion and “the feels” are a big enhancer to the law of attraction.
The goal alone may come and go too quickly.
To sum up, here are some ways to make 2021 a little brighter:
- Explore Shadow work (see THIS podcast for more info).
- Join me for the FREE Karma Cleanse (you can sign up for a reminder and the fill-in workbook HERE).
- Sign up for Angels In Your Biz weekly oracle card forecast or find it on Instagram. The guidance will call you out if you’re not on track and always gives helpful information to help you stay motivated.
Happy 2021 everyone!
I’m pissed about something today and you might be too! Let me explain…
Recently, I was thinking about business coaches and their online courses. What’s crazy is something like 94% of students don’t complete their online courses – I wondered WHY???
My guides showed me a clock with all of its parts and that’s when it hit me!
What MOST online business coaches and course creators are giving you is a box full of clock parts (all the parts of a successful business) and an instruction booklet (their course) and expecting that you’ll be able to assemble a clock (just like theirs), based on their simple instructions.
At some point, very early on, a part of your soul goes, WTF?
Maybe you internalize it thinking something is wrong with YOU instead of the course.
THE PROBLEM, and this really fires me up, is that maybe THEY built a clock and made 6-figures (or whatever they’re telling you), and now you’re supposed to build a clock (like theirs) super fast and make loads of money like them!
GAH! No. NOOO!! STOP!!
Have you ever stopped to consider that’s THEIR life path, but what if YOUR life path ISN’T building a clock at all?
What if you’re here, in this lifetime, to build a damn rocket ship, or a telescope, or a flying electric car…you get me?
Someone else’s parts and instructions fail you every time because that’s THEIR life path…and you, my friend, are not on the same path.
YOU are not broken, their plan just isn’t YOURS…
Likely, that’s also why you’re always feeling so freaking OVERWHELMED by it!
And overwhelm kills forward action EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
I honestly hope my point isn’t getting lost in metaphors so here it is more clearly:
You’ve been raised to follow instructions and raise your hand, seek help outside, and NOT to trust the wisdom from within…
But as a Business Coach for 4 years, I can tell you, to get transformative LASTING results – that model is going to fail you. Maybe not immediately, but when you are ready for that big leap in your business, it can’t come from WITHOUT.
You need to seek help from INSIDE!
It’s time to toss out those business models that promise you they have the answers FOR you, in favor of a ONE-SIZE-FITS-YOU program so that you can remember how to look inward for answers and guidance AND get real HUMAN support when you’re feeling a little lost on your path.
That’s exactly what I teach and preach because I, like you, followed someone else’s strategies and ideas until I couldn’t take the “failure” any longer…I threw out their model in favor of following MY inner guidance and so far so f’ing good!
I’ve learned a thing or two from both being a coach and a student and I want to give you some helpful hints to consider before you invest in that next program or coach.
Questions to Ask before you leap:
- Are they giving you their formula or are they teaching tools to connect to your own authentic formula?
- Is there a transformation involved in their program?
- If you know people who have taken it, ask how they were before they took it and what happened after? (Make sure you’re not solely paying for networking because that might not be what you’re after).
- Are there actionable steps that you can apply to your business NOW?
- Is it a balance of “inner work” and business principles? (You want both!)
- Does it fit your industry? Let’s face it. If you’re “woo” your “woo”. If you invest in a coach or program that doesn’t have inner growth included, your soul is going to feel it.
The key to investing in an effective Business Coach or eCourse is to make sure that you can apply it as you learn and build a strong foundation as you go – from the inside.
Most people don’t talk about this, but you need to build the foundation both inside with your beliefs about safety and success and THEN scale your business.
It explains why 70% of lottery winners go bankrupt! They didn’t learn how to earn the money and manage it as they grew so when things start to go wrong they can’t figure out how to fix it. They don’t have that skill set to fall back on.
If you don’t know how to go within and follow your inner guidance –well, there’s no shortage of examples of people hitting it big and then losing everything.
If you don’t have a solid foundation, it will crumble when your post goes viral or you finally have email subscribers signing up at 50 per day but no one buys anything or signs up for your services.
You never want to feel disillusioned by your hard work. Like you bought into a system that wasn’t designed for you and forgot to BE true to yourself.
“You can fail at something you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance doing what you love.” Jim Carrey
