Define Your Intentions

Once you've chosen the area(s) you want to focus on changing, define your intentions. Write out your intentions, but don't overload the sector(s). For this first board, choose one thing you want to change or improve.

You can choose one for each sector or just start out with one or two. It's up to you how many goals you set. Keep in mind that feng shui is all about balance, so don't overload your vision board. You can start out small and add more when you begin to achieve your goals.

Where Should I Put My Feng Shui Vision Board?

Once you have created your vision board, you need to decide where to put it. The simplest choice is the luck sector of the goal that needs to happen first. For example, if you want to buy a house, but you need more income and that will come from either a career change or job promotion, then the north sector (career) is the most logical place to put your career board for now. Once you achieve the promotion/raise/new career, you can then move your board to the southeast sector (wealth). The same goes for other luck sectors, such as west sector if you are trying to conceive and so on.

Separate Feng Shui Vision Boards for Unrelated Intentions

You should make separate vision boards for any intentions that are unrelated. For example, if you want a new career and a health related intention, then you should create a separate feng shui vision board for each one. You will place the career feng shui vision board in the north sector of your home or office, and the health one in the northeast sector of your home or office.
