Even if you consider yourself to be a fairly positive person, when the stars of good fortune don’t seem to be aligning in your favor or financial pressure is steadily building up in your life, it can become easy to succumb to scarcity thinking.
If you are currently struggling with lack or there has been a long-term pattern of scarcity in your life, you might wonder how it is possible to reclaim and realign yourself to an abundance mindset.
Not only is it possible to cultivate an abundance mindset, it is highly recommended that you intentionally choose to do just that! The primary reason is that our mindset plays a huge part in determining the quality of our physical reality.
When we operate from a place of scarcity and fear, we are more likely to magnetize circumstances of lack and limitation into our orbit. This is because whatever we focus on or worry about is multiplied and repeated over and over again in our life.
We can quickly realize that this type of abundance-deficient formula is not a winning combination for success in life.
Some common examples of scarcity thinking to be aware of include:
- “Money is hard to come by.”
- “If I get something good, it will be taken away.”
- “Wealth is for lucky people but not for me.”
- “Life is hard and always a struggle.”
- “I’m not worthy or deserving of good things.”
Having those kind of impoverished thoughts completely repels abundance. However, the good news is that the opposite holds true as well.
An abundant mindset always begets more good fortune to be thankful for.
In an effort to reprogram your subconscious mind to better align with abundance, here are proven steps for clearing out limiting beliefs that resonate with scarcity and replacing them with empowering thoughts that magnetize you to prosperity:
1. Become More Deeply Self-Aware
On a sheet of paper, write down all of the negative thoughts you regularly have playing on repeat in your mind in relation to abundance and money scarcity. Really get in there and dig deep to uncover any thoughts that may be taking you out of alignment with abundance.
2. Reflect Upon the Accuracy of Your Limiting Beliefs
Review each of the limiting beliefs you’ve written down and ask yourself if the belief is the absolute 100% gospel truth. If not, write next to that belief “NOT TRUE.”
3. Consider Where Those Beliefs Originated
Further assess each of your limiting beliefs and ask yourself if the belief originates from you or, instead, from societal programming or your family environment. For any beliefs that influenced you from an external source, write next to that belief “NOT MY BELIEF.”
4. Replace Your Old Head Trash with New Empowered Beliefs
On a separate, clean sheet of paper, write down new, fully empowered beliefs to replace each of your former negative beliefs about abundance and money. Write your new beliefs in the present tense as if they are your current reality. For example:
- “I AM a money magnet.”
- “Financial abundance flows to me with ease.”
- “I consistently receive ever-flowing monetary nourishment.”
- “The Universe is abundant and blesses me with infinite good fortune.”
5. Reignite and Unleash Your More Empowered and Abundant Self
Now for the fun part—take your sad list of limiting beliefs around abundance and money and very carefully and safely burn it or put it through a paper shredder while visualizing yourself free from that old head trash.
To really amplify the energy of abundance you are generating, joyfully proclaim:
“I am a powerful magnet for abundance, wealth, prosperity, and good fortune!”
6. Monitor and Upgrade Your Thoughts Daily
Display your NEW List of Abundance Beliefs where you can regularly read them throughout your day. You may want to display your list on your computer screen saver or phone lock screen. Or print copies of your list and hang it up around your house or office. You can even voice record your new abundance beliefs and listen to them prior to going to sleep.
Whenever you catch any thoughts cropping up that are misaligned with abundance, consciously choose to delete and upgrade those limiting beliefs with more empowered thoughts from your list. Continue to repeat this step until abundance becomes your default way of thinking.
Bringing It All Together
By consciously choosing to retrain and reorient your subconscious mind toward abundance, you’ll begin to magnetize all forms of prosperity into your life including inner peace, joy, love, more deeply connected relationships, new opportunities, and, yes, even money.
