A few months ago, I was feeling broke, not only financially, but also in spirit. My business had stalled and sales weren’t happening. This made me feel sad, angry, and frustrated. I surrendered to the wave of negative emotions and got under the bed sheets to cry.
After a gentle weep, I finally felt calm. The silence in the bedroom invited me to talk to my inner self, that’s when I had an awakening moment. “Stop worrying about money,” my inner voice whispered.
This simple realization caused a wave of relief. It was as if someone who hadn’t been able to walk for a long time suddenly got out of bed and started walking, which brings me to my first tip on how to manifest money…
1. Stop worrying about money.
After I stopped worrying about the numbers in my bank account, miracles started to happen. I made sales again, and I even received a wholesale offer. It turned out someone had stumbled upon my online shop and loved my dresses. After a few back-and-forth messages, we agreed she would sell my dresses in her brick and mortar shop.
We all sometimes feel like our effort isn’t paying off, but you never know who’s watching. It could be that day you receive a surprise when you least expect it.
2. Feel grateful.
You see, wealth isn’t just about money. After taking a look around at my surroundings, I realized just how abundant I actually am.
I feel genuinely happy about being in a loving relationship. As I write these words, I’m feeling grateful for having a laptop and a desk. I’m also immensely thankful for having plenty of food in my fridge, true friends, and living parents. “Wait a minute… I already have all of these blessings in my life? Woohoo!”
Gratitude helps us feel instantly abundant. You can’t feel lacking and grateful at the same time.
3. Have fun.
Money is energy. When money doesn’t flow, it’s because our vibration is low or we’re experiencing blockages in other areas of life. Interestingly, the time I was feeling broke, I was also failing in my social relationships.
I turned down countless invitations from friends because I was afraid to spend the little money I had. Without even realizing it, this was affecting my vibration and happiness level. But once I started to have fun again, my vibration—and money—rose like a lump of self-rising dough.
A friend of mine even recently invited me to her town. And when I told her I’d buy my train ticket, she offered to pay for it! Part of manifesting money lies in trusting the plan of the universe. You never know who’s going to say, “It’s my treat.”
4. Practice self-love and self-care.
I truly believe that we attract what we are. When we take care of ourselves, we are in a high vibration; therefore we attract more of what we want.
There are many different ways to practice self-love and self-care. For me, it often comes in the form of feeding my body with food that makes me feel good, or exercising and wearing clothes I feel comfortable in. It also comes when taking moments daily to say, “I love you” and “You got this” to myself.
I can tell you that when I take care of myself, I feel more energized, beautiful, and confident. And this also reflects in my money, because everything is connected!
5. Take radical action.
When I realized that my biz. wasn’t making big bucks, I decided not to put all my eggs in one basket. In other words, I kept my side jobs so I could have different sources of income.
Having a day job doesn’t mean you’re giving up your dreams. Once you have a steady source of income coming in every month, you will feel better knowing that your basic needs are met. This will allow you to use the rest of your time to focus on your craft or land your dream job.
In my experience, when I’ve been brave enough to put myself out there in order to bring food to the table, I’ve manifested more money!
6. Work smart.
Working smart is about doing the 20% of things that bring 80% of the results, or delegating chunks of work. Gone are the times of working 8-9 hours a day. There are days I work 3 hours and call it a day. I trust that those hours will be enough to benefit my business. And most of the time—when I’m not obsessing or worrying, and when I’m enjoying my work—those 3 hours bring in the cash.
Working harder isn’t always the answer to making more money; nor is lack of action or no action at all. It’s about finding that sweet spot where you get up, enjoy the work that you do, and trust that the universe has your back.
Finally, if you are feeling lack in your life, give. Invite a friend over for dinner, share an inspiring post, donate, or do whatever your heart feels called to do. Money is an exchange and if you give value to people, the universe will reward you.
Whenever you catch yourself in a scarcity mindset, go out and spend some money. This doesn’t mean that if you only have $20 to spare, you should go out and spend it all. But trusting that there’s more money coming your way always helps the money energy flow. So go out and treat yourself to a latte.
