This is one of my most favorite topics! To be quite honest with you I think and talk about money all the time and have become quite obsessed with learning how to manifest more of it into my life.
Growing up I picked up a lot of limiting beliefs about money through my parents, school teachers, and my environment. One of the most important things I’ve ever done in my life is to take the time to unlearn everything that I know and program my mind with the real money language. It has worked miracles and I promise it can work miracles in your life too!
If you are struggling financially, never have enough money in your bank account, or make decent money but somehow lose it all to bills and expenses, you just have to change your money mindset. Your mind is the most powerful tool you can use to change your life.
If you want to live with enough money to not only survive, but thrive you must change the way you think and feel about your finances.
Remember, if you know anything about the law of attraction it is that like attracts like. If you think and feel positive thoughts and emotions you attract positive experiences into your life. If you think and feel negative thoughts and emotions you attract negative experiences into your life.
Manifesting money is about releasing deep rooted beliefs that our society has programmed in us such as “rich people are greedy”, “I’ll never be wealthy”, “I can’t afford that”, “that’s too expensive”, “money can’t buy happiness” etc. so that you don’t attract those same negative experiences into your life. Now I know you may be thinking “I don’t believe those things” but, I promise you that if you’re currently struggling financially you may not consciously hold these beliefs but deep down you do. And if it’s not these beliefs it may be other limiting beliefs about money you may be holding on to.
Things that your parents said to you when you were little (we can’t afford that, save your money for a rainy day, etc.) or experiences you had as a child (your parent’s working day and night to provide for your family, parents fighting about money, etc.) have become subconscious beliefs that are blocking you from manifesting more money every day.
These beliefs and experiences are in your current energetic field constantly sending a signal into the universe asking to receive more bills, more struggle, more hard work, more things that you can’t afford.
For that reason you must change your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings about money and heal them on a subconscious level until you make it your absolute truth and you believe that money is an unlimited resource and is always flowing your way.
To get to this point I’ve outlined the 7most important money manifestation steps for you to follow. I recommend that you make these steps your new daily habits so you can reprogram your subconscious mind and start your journey to a life full of abundance and prosperity.
STEP 1: CLEAN YOUR WALLET AND OTHER CLUTTER IN YOUR LIFE
This is one of the easiest techniques you can use to clear out unnecessary clutter that is energetically blocking you from manifesting more money.
Remember, chaos in your home creates more chaos in your life so the more organized and clean you can keep your wallet and home the better you will feel.
Money is just energy that you have to learn to call into your life. By clearing out your space, you make room for new abundant energy to flow to you. To be rich you have to act like a rich person, respecting your money and treating it as your best friend. Learn to respect money and money will respect you in return.
Money Action: Take a look at your wallet and reflect on the way it currently makes you feel. Now clean out your wallet by throwing out any old receipts, expired gift cards, and other miscellaneous things that don’t belong in this space. Take out all of your dollar bills, straighten them out (including all of the corners), and organize them by currency amount with the largest dollar bill facing you. Looking at a $100 bill that’s facing you will make you feel more abundant than looking at a $1 bill.
Now choose a few other spaces in your home which you use to deal with your finances (e.g. kitchen counter, office, dining table, night stand, etc.) and clear them out just like you did with your wallet.
I also recommend buying some sage and running the smoke through your wallet and other spaces you cleaned. Saging these areas will remove old, stagnant energy that’s been stuck in these places.
Once you have completed this action, reflect on the way you feel now that your wallet and space has been cleaned. Reflecting on your feelings and emotions before and after you take action will motivate you to make this process a new habit!
STEP 2. SET A MONEY MANIFESTATION GOAL AND GIVE YOUR MONEY A PURPOSE!
The universe is quite literal when it comes to money manifestation so setting a money goal is an absolute must.
If you are unsure about how much money you want and give off the vibration of uncertainty you’re making it really hard for the universe to give you what you want. You have to get into the habit of being specific and feeling certain so there is no confusion. If you simply ask for “more money” but don’t tell the universe how much, it may give you $1 and think it has completed its mission.
The goal here is to be specific and set the intention that this amount of money is already in your possession. Think about ordering something on Amazon. You are searching for and ordering very specific items that Amazon can send you in the mail (e.g. The four agreements book by Don Miguel). If there was a generic search option where you could order “a book” could you imagine how confused the Amazon warehouse workers would be. They would most likely give up and send you nothing.
Next, you’ll have to give this money a specific purpose. What will you be doing with this amount? Remember, money is energy and it needs to have a home. The energy must go somewhere and have a specific purpose. Without this direction it may get lost or end up going to places it wasn’t intended to go (e.g. unexpected bills).
When you set a specific money manifestation goal, trust that it is already yours, and show the universe what exactly you want to do with it (i.g. where you’re directing the energy and what it is here to accomplish), amazing shifts start to happen in your life.
Money Action: Take a few moments to think about the amount of money you want. Write down the exact amount in your journal in present tense as if it is currently in your bank account. (e.g. Thank you for the extra $1000 dollars in my bank account).
Now give this money a purpose by writing down exactly what you’ll be doing with this extra $1000. Be specific. See my example below:
$100 - phone bill
$200 - pay off Capital One credit card
$200 - shopping for clothes
$120 - massage and facial
$330 - buy new home decor from crate & barrel
$50 - savings account
Total = $1000
STEP 3. GRATITUDE IS KEY!
One of the key ingredients of manifestation is feeling gratitude and appreciation for all the blessings that currently exist in your life and all the abundance that is yet to come.
Imagine that the universe is the owner of a big gift shop. It has the power to send you all that you have ever wanted in the mail - money, success, your dream car, vacations, love, confidence, etc. - It is ready to send you lots of gifts in the mail but it needs a sign of appreciation for the blessings it has already given you. If you’ve been waking up every morning complaining about your life, how much you hate your job, your coworkers, how the weather sucks, how you’re always broke, your paychecks are too low, your bills are too high, your husband never helps out, your children are too loud, etc. forget about receiving any gifts in the mail. This un-appreciative attitude and the constant complaining about all the things that you don’t have is the exact reason why you’ve never been able to manifest any money.
Are you in the habit of saying “thank you” for the gifts you’ve already received? Are you in the habit of saying “thank you” to every penny that the universe gives you? If the answer is no, would you want to send yourself gifts if you had to listen to all the complaining?
Whatever you’re grateful for you will manifest more of in your life. Love every single penny you receive and more will be given to you.
There is so much to be grateful for. The sole reason that you woke up this morning with a beating heart is an absolute blessing you can appreciate every single morning. Thank you universe for giving me a good night’s rest, a roof over my head, a bed to sleep on, fresh water to drink, the money to pay my bills so I can use electricity and water in my home to live. Thank you for the food on my table, my job, and my children that bring a smile to my face every single day. Just a few examples to get your creative juices flowing. Turn your complaints into moments of appreciation and I promise, you will start to experience the miracles and magic of manifesting.
One very effective way to make gratitude a daily habit is with the Gratitude Manifestation Crystal Bracelet from everlur. I put it on my wrist in the morning and say one thing I’m grateful for every time I catch a glimpse of it during the day. By the time I’m ready to go to bed I’ve said at least 30 things I’m grateful for. Using the crystal bracelet as a tool for manifesting gratitude has allowed me to train my mind to think appreciative thoughts and made this practice second nature for me.
Money Action: Take a few moments to reflect on the way you’ve been feeling about your life. Do you have a habit of complaining? Be honest with yourself. Lying to yourself will not help you manifest any faster as the universe receives the vibrations you put out.
Get a journal and write down 15 things that you are grateful for first thing when you wake up and 15 more right before bed. I know it can be challenging to think of that many things, but I’m giving you a larger number on purpose to really get your mind thinking. You don’t have to think big. It could be the smallest things that cross your mind.
The purpose of this exercise is for you to search and find all of the gifts you’ve already received and say thank you. I’m now ready to receive more! I recommend that you make this a daily habit and keep your gratitude journal right on your night stand so you don’t forget.
Investing in a Gratitude Manifestation Crystal Bracelet is also a great tool for making gratitude a daily practice. Once you’ve gotten a hang of it I also recommend getting in the habit of thanking the universe for the gifts you’re asking to receive. (e.g. Thank you universe for the wonderful facial and massage I got today).
Make sure to write these statements down in present tense as if the money is already in your possession. Remember, thinking about things in future tense will always keep your desires in the future instead of manifesting them into your present reality.
STEP 4. VISUALIZE YOUR NEW LIFE
Visualization is one of the most powerful manifestation techniques and one of the most important to get really good at.
Your current finances are a direct representation of your thoughts, beliefs, visions, and emotions of your current reality.
Think about how you currently see your finances. Do you feel good about them? What story are you telling yourself about who you are, how much money you have, and how you live your life? Do you like to dwell on your past, regret past actions, and feel like your past has placed you in your current circumstances? I’m asking you these questions because I want you to really think about how you view yourself. Are these views really serving and empowering you? If the answer is no, I hate to break it to you but the stories you continue to tell yourself are being directly manifested into your current reality.
As long as your subconscious mind believes that money is a problem because that’s the story you continue to tell yourself, money will always stay a problem. These beliefs dictate the way you think, which dictate the way you feel, which dictate the way you act and live your life.
Visualization is a powerful tool to change your story and move the steering wheel so you can take a shortcut to a different destination.
To change your finances you must start to tell a different story about yourself and mentally live in your new dream life now. To make this new story more believable to your subconscious mind you must start visualizing it in your mind. When you visualize images in your mind and combine them with real emotions and feelings, your subconscious mind can’t tell if what you're visualizing and feeling is real or make believe. It will document these feelings as truth and by the law of attraction attract these experiences into your life.
Have you ever had a dream that felt so real that you couldn’t differentiate between reality and dream state? It FELT so real that you could really FEEL every move, every breath, every emotion? You wake up and are baffled by the fact that what you experienced was a dream happening in your imagination and not reality. This is the type of visualization you have to replicate for manifestation to really work.
Manifesting through visualization is not just about imagining money and then *poof*, it appears. Visualizing is about experiencing your new upgraded life in your imagination and really FEELING like you already have what you want right now.
Think about it. You’re not after the actual money bills or the monetary money in your account. You want money because you know that having more money and better finances are going to make you feel a certain way. More money can allow you to experience different things, buy a new car that will make you FEEL excited and proud, pay off your credit card debt which is going to make you FEEL relieved, plan a vacation which is going to make you FEEL relaxed and joyful, etc. So it’s not really about the money and more about how the money will make you feel.
Money Action: Grab your journal and reflect on the money action from step 2. You gave your money a purpose and wrote down what you will be using your manifested money for. Now write down how these experiences would make you feel if they were to manifest right in this moment. How would you feel? Excited, ready to celebrate, relieved, proud, etc. What would you do exactly? What would you say? Would you excitedly tell your best friend that you finally paid off your credit card? Really place yourself in this new reality and think about all the different feelings and emotions you would experience.
Now, grab some headphones and pick a few songs on your phone that make you feel really good. I’ve noticed over the years that listening to music while I visualize allows me to feel emotions much easier than if I visualize in silence. Music has a way to make you feel emotions and make your visions a lot more vivid and real especially if you are a beginner. Once you have a few songs ready to go, lay or sit down comfortably in a peaceful place where you can concentrate for 10 minutes. Put your headphones in and allow your mind to take you into a new reality, experiencing the joy you’ve always wished for, right in this moment. Feel into it right now. Visualize and feel your success.
If you’re wanting a promotion at work visualize receiving the amazing news and calling your family all excited to tell them. If you want more clients in your business visualize receiving their confirmation to sign up for your service and paying you in full. If you want to go shopping for some new clothes, visualize your shopping trip gladly handing over your credit card paying for everything without looking at a single price tag. Whatever it is that you wish for, feel the reality of it now. It is happening right now! Let yourself get carried away in this new world for 10 min or more a day and watch how your life slowly starts to shift.
STEP 5. IDENTIFY YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS ABOUT MONEY!
Since childhood we have created limiting beliefs about money that we have internalized over time and now accept to be the truth. These limiting beliefs are the aftermath of the things we experienced at home, heard our parents and teachers say, observed on TV and social media, and were taught by society. You’ve heard these limiting beliefs before such as “money doesn’t grow on trees and is therefore really difficult to get, money can’t buy happiness, rich people are greedy, money is evil, rich people take all the money from everyone else so there is not enough to go around, it takes really hard work to become rich, etc”.
You see, consciously you know that these beliefs are garbage. Subconsciously these beliefs are in fact holding you back because you don’t want to become a work slave if money is hard to earn or be judged as greedy because you believe that rich people are greedy. You self-sabotage yourself out of fear. These beliefs limit you, make you procrastinate, and hold you back from taking action when opportunities are presented. You must work to rewrite these stories otherwise they will impact your financial reality forever.
Money Action: Grab your journal and start writing down all of the limiting beliefs that you currently hold. Be honest with yourself. If there is the slightest part of you that believes something it is most likely currently holding you back from manifesting more money. You can’t lie to your subconscious mind.
Below are some journal prompts for you to answer:
Write down all of the things you've heard your parents and teachers say (e.g. that’s too expensive, we can’t afford that, that’s for rich people, I would never buy xyz that’s materialistic etc.)
Write down all of the things you have observed your parents do (i.e. work 18 hour days, fight about money, etc.)
Write down all of the things that you’ve learned from society or your friends (e.g. rich people are greedy, all rich people had to screw others over in order to acquire their wealth which is evil, etc.)
Write down all the experiences you’ve had with money in your life (e.g. went to the store with your mom and she didn’t have enough money to pay for groceries, shopping at thrift stores, you wanted that toy at the store and your parents would tell you that’s too expensive, etc.)
Write down any other limiting beliefs that come to mind.
How have these beliefs and experiences impacted you over the years? How have they held you back from gaining better finances? Do you see a correlation between these beliefs and how you’re currently doing financially? Where in your life have you seen or heard the exact opposite of these limiting beliefs? Do you accept that life doesn’t have to be ruled by these beliefs and that you have the power to change them and live a life that’s different?
For each limiting belief rewrite an opposite empowering story that you want to invite into your life. Here is an example:
Rich people are evil - Not all rich people are evil. Many rich people do a lot of good in the world with the money that they have. Money doesn’t make me evil. Evil makes me evil. I’m not evil and money won’t change me. Having money will allow me to give more money to charity, help the homeless, and do the things that are important to me. It only amplifies the person that I already am. There are plenty of very wonderful rich people in the world who actually make a difference with their money.
STEP 6. USING MONEY AFFIRMATIONS TO REPROGRAM YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND IS THE REAL GAME CHANGER!
Your words are your most powerful magic wand. They can be used to create magic or destruction in your life depending on the words you choose to think and speak. What you say to yourself becomes what you believe, and what you believe becomes your physical reality. Using positive affirmations allows you to choose your words wisely and consciously change the way that you think and feel about money. Affirmations help you unlearn what you currently believe about money and learn the real money language.
For example, if you believe that money is scarce, affirming to yourself over and over again that money is in fact an unlimited resource that is always flowing your way, allows you to remove this money block and program that new belief into your subconscious mind.
The key to powerful affirmations that actually work is consistency and the act of declaring your affirmations. You have to be consistent and practice your affirmations day and night. Say them over and over again until you actually start to believe them. To transform your affirmations into beliefs that become a part of your identity you have to declare them with absolute certainty and feel their truth. One of my most favorite ways to make affirmations a part of my daily habit is with the everlur Money & Prosperity Manifestation Bracelet.
Pick 3 money affirmations that speak to you and feel good.
Every morning when you feel yourself waking up, keep your eyes closed for a few moments and start to mentally repeat your affirmation over and over. When you’re in this half asleep/half awake state you have the most access to your subconscious mind. Take advantage of it and feed yourself these powerful statements. You may do the same right before falling asleep. Close your eyes and keep repeating your affirmation until you fall into slumber.
If you decide to invest in an everlur Manifestation Crystal Bracelet place it on your wrist in the morning, stand up tall with your chest out and repeat your affirmation 3 times out loud. Say your affirmations powerfully with emotion behind your tone. You may also take 2 minutes during this time to close your eyes and visualize what it FEELS like to already have what you desire. Really feel and celebrate your achievement and practice the visualization technique in step 4. Then go about your day and use your bracelet as a reminder of your specific intention. Every time you notice your bracelet take a deep breath and repeat your affirmation. This is a great way to make affirmations a part of your daily habits.
When you drive to work and are alone in your car scream your affirmations out loud. You may do this really in any setting but I’ve found myself mostly alone in the car which makes it easy for me to scream and shout. I know this may seem a little ridiculous at first but hey what do you have to lose? Screaming your affirmations allows you to engage all of your energy and emotion which makes affirmations 100 times more powerful then when you say them quietly.
STEP 7. LET GO OF A SCARCITY MINDSET AND INVITE ABUNDANCE INTO YOUR LIFE
Do you have trouble giving money away? Do you save your money for a “rainy day”? Do you feel like you never have enough money? If you answer yes to these questions it is because you are currently living from a place of scarcity rather than abundance. You feel scared that the money you spend or give away will never come back to you.
Money manifestation is about letting go of your scarcity mindset and living your life from a place of abundance. A place where money is limitless and there is more than enough to go around. A place where the money that you spend comes back to you 10 fold so you happily give it away and feel good about it. I know these things are easier said than done so I’m going to be honest with you on this one. Going from scarcity to abundance takes time especially when you’ve seen and experienced your entire life through scarcity.
What you need to understand is that money is energy just like air is energy. When you think about the air that you breathe do you feel like there is a scarce amount of air in the world? That there is not enough to go around? That someone is taking your air away by taking deeper breaths? My guess is that you have an abundance mindset when it comes to the air that you breathe. You don’t even think about it. You just know that you can wake up and there is an abundance of air for you to breathe and live on every single day. This same mindset is what you need to get to when it comes to money.
Feeling abundant around your finances is like a muscle in your body you have to workout every day to make it grow stronger and stronger. Take baby steps, and make the below actions a daily habit and I promise when you start believing in abundance, abundance will flow into your life in avalanches.
Money Action: Write down some examples of recent experiences you’ve had where your thoughts, feelings, and actions were rooted through scarcity. (e.g. you are standing in line at the grocery store and have anxiety about paying for your groceries, you purposely order something cheaper at a restaurant because you don’t want to pay for a more expensive meal that you would enjoy more but don’t want to pay for, etc.)
Any time you come across these experiences in real time remind yourself that money is just energy and limitless in its existence. Flip your negative scarcity emotions to feelings of abundance by rewriting the stories you tell yourself. For example, if spending money gives you anxiety, remind yourself that anytime you spend money, you’re actually contributing to the positive flow of the economy, which pays the salaries of the people at the grocery store/restaurant. It pays for their food, rent, clothes etc. continues to circulate and then comes back to you 10 fold.
Start tipping more than you would normally tip at restaurants. If you usually tip 10 percent start leaving a 20 or 22 percent tip when you eat out. Giving more than you feel normally comfortable with will slowly move you to a more abundant mindset knowing that you always have enough and that money will always find itself back to you. If you’re thinking “I barely have any money for myself and my family and you want me to give more money away” I want you to realize where that thought comes from. This thought process is the epitome of a scarcity mindset and the reason why you are struggling financially so snap out of it.
