A vision or dream board is an excellent and fun way to focus your energy, and there are always great feng shui areas in your home to display it. Vision or dream boards are usually a melange of images—like photos, drawings, or magazine pages—combined with words or phrases that are meaningful to you in some way. These words can include goals, gratitude lists, song lyrics, and more. The point is to bring together items that represent things you have and the things you want or need, and the board helps you visualize their reality.

Best Locations For Your Vision Board

To define the best location, there are two main factors. First, be clear about the main focus of your board. Do you usually create one for all your goals, or do you prefer several boards for different goals?

For example, one in the home office might be focused on money and business success, and another in the bedroom focused on love and health. An artistic person might have one in their creative studio that is a visual expression of their work, creativity, beauty, etc. 

Second, look at the main materials you used to create your board. Is it made of metal or wood? Are your images connected in a seamless way (i.e. glue or invisible tape) or do you stick and rearrange them with metal pins? 

Once you answer these two questions you will be ready to find the perfect location based on the feng shui bagua guidelines. 

Common sense will tell you that a metal board (cold energy) is not good for the bedroom where you obviously want warmth. It will also tell you that a board with many metal pins will create sha chi in the bedroomvery bad feng shui. Trust your common sense, it will always lead you the right way.

Below are some general feng shui tips to help you find the best location for your vision board in your home, office, or home office.

For Business Success, Money, and Career Growth

Choose metal accessories and metal feng shui element colors. For the purpose of attracting money and success, it is good to have an "active" board, meaning you move things around regularly, adding more images, article clippings, specific words, etc.

The best place for a vision board connected to business success, money, and career growth is definitely the home office. If possible, have it in the North feng shui bagua area. You can also follow the general guidelines for the North area in terms of feng shui element colors, shapes, etc.

For a Love and Health Vision Board

Choose wood accessories, and wood and earth feng shui element colors. Contrary to the feng shui of business success and money vision board, you want your love, health, and well-being board to be more stable, so it is best to define a basic structure and stick to it, only adding other elements as you see fit.

Best feng shui areas for a love, health and well-being board can be an organized, well-lit, beautiful walk-in closet (yes, a beautiful closet is possible!), a bedroom wall you often see, or the East or Southwest area of the home office.

Hang It Up

These are very general feng shui guidelines. For best results, trust your feelings and experiment until you reach that moment when everything clicks, so to speak, and you have the perfect board in the perfect location to support your dreams.
