Money manifestation – everyone’s favourite topic! I’ve got the four steps for Money Manifestation Fundamentals from this book which is one of my favourites for reading which is The Secret Daily Teachings by Rhonda Byrne and in it she talks about the four fundamental things to do to manifest money using the law of attraction.
1 Think more thoughts of abundance in a day than of lack of money
2 Be happy now without the money
3 Be truly grateful for everything you have now
4 Give the best of yourself to others
1. Think more thoughts of abundance in a day than of lack of money
Manifestation comes through the energy and the emotions that we feel. It’s no good thinking good thoughts and positive thoughts and “I’m rich,” “I’m wealthy” and being all up here in our heads, without actually feeling it within ourselves, within our heart.
Creating the energy and feeling of gratitude and abundance – recognising the abundance that is already around you.
There is so much around us and we have so much on offer:
– having a roof over our head,
– having food in the fridge and in the cupboard,
– having a car to drive and
– having access to all sorts of facilities that that we have, certainly that we have in Australia
There is so much abundance in and around us and even if you don’t own the item you can still see something that is abundant in a material way and still reflect on it and be grateful for it. It doesn’t have to be your Mercedes-Benz that you see that makes you feel good – you can see one driving by and you can go “Wow – look at that! Look at what an abundant country that I live in that there are people around me that can afford these items. If they can do it, then I can do it too, because these items are here for purchase so anything somebody else has already done, I can also do as well.
2. Be happy now without the money.
It’s so easy to tell ourselves that when we do something or when something happens, then we will be happy.
– when the children are older,
– when the children have left home,
– when I’ve made $100,000,
– when I’ve made $ 1 000 000.
With that kind of attitude we are never going to be happy because we never going to get there.
That “there”, that milestone is always going to be moved, and be somewhere further down the line.
We need to be happy with where we are – and just because we are accepting and happy where we are now, doesn’t mean that we don’t want to improve ourselves and work somewhere further along and and better ourselves – but we can still appreciate what we do have now, where we are now, and be grateful for everything in and around us.
By appreciating what we do have where we are now, we can create something better for ourselves and we can attract more of what we already have.
3. Be truly grateful for everything you have now
This ties in with no 2 of Being Happy Now – but it is also being grateful for everything you have now.
One of the best books that I’ve read on gratitude, and to help you implement the principles of being grateful, is also a book by Rhonda Byrne, she’s done a whole series of books and I love them all, this book is called The Magic.
She goes through 28 days and covers different areas in your life that you can practise gratitude. In here she talks about the magic of gratitude, she says:
“In your life , the law operates on your thoughts and feelings, because they are energy too, and so whatever you think, whatever you feel, you attract to you.”
“Every action always has an opposite and equal reaction.
When you apply the idea of gratitude to Newton’s law it says: every action of giving thanks always causes an opposite reaction of receiving. And what you receive will always be equal to the amount of gratitude you’ve given … And the more sincerely and the more deeply grateful you feel, the more you will receive.”
Now if that doesn’t inspire you to appreciate everything around you, then I don’t know what will!
While you’re practising that gratitude, having those abundant thoughts, taking something as simple as a glass of water – when you’re having a sip of water, saying “Thank You” – thank you that you are able to have clear, clean water to be able to drink. Whether the water is from your tap, or you’ve purchased filtered water, or you filter your own, the fact that you have it, the fact that you have food to eat, thanking every mouthful that you have, be grateful for it – that energy that you can give out, you just cannot imagine the difference it can make of feeling that grateful in everything that you do – try it and see what a difference it makes in your life.
4. Give the best of yourself to others
Often people will say, “Well, when I get the big break, or when I’m in the position that I really want, then I’ll really work. In the meantime I’m just going to sit here and not really do my best effort because the job that I’ve got isn’t what I really want, so I’m not really going to waste my time or my energy.”
That’s the wrong attitude to have.
Whatever you happen to be doing, you need to apply your best to it, because by applying your best to it, and giving the best of yourself to other, that is what is going to go out into the Universe and that is what will come back to you and that is how you end up getting new opportunities – by always, always, always giving of your best. Not being half hearted in your attempts because you don’t think that that situation warrants you giving of your best. Give your best to others at all times.
To those four fundamental steps, I’d like to add a bonus 5th step – take inspired action.
It’s all very well saying, “Leave the How to the Universe, I’m just going to sit and think about what I want to create in my life, and I’m going to think these abundant thoughts about it and I’m going to be grateful for things”, but at the end of the day, you really do need to take some action, it’s not enough to just sit there and meditate and visualise your future. You do have to get out there and do something. It doesn’t matter how small a step you take towards it, the Universe will conspire to come with you and create other opportunities.
For example, if you happen to have money problems and you go, “It’s all very well saying think about being abundant, what happens if I don’t have enough money to pay my accounts at the moment?”
That’s fine. That may be where you currently are. Pick a time in the week where you can sit down, have a look at your accounts, and work out what accounts can you actually pay? Pay them.
Work out a plan as to how you can pay the rest of the money you owe off, contact the people you owe money to, tell them what your situation is. A bit of communication can open up doors. It can open up understanding with others that they can see where you are, and you never know what help can come from that. Just by making a plan and communicating with people that you owe money to, that in itself can relieve a lot of the stress because people can understand where you’re at.
You can take that time to worry about your money situation, but limit the time that you are going to spend stressing about it. “I’m going to spend an hour today working on my accounts, paying the accounts that I can, making up a plan for where I’m going to go, and then after that I’m going back to my thoughts of abundance and gratitude – until next week when I’ll repeat the process.” But you limit the time you spend on the worry in that situation.
If you want to have a certain amount of money in your savings account, it’s no good dreaming and visualising having $ 10 000 in your savings account without actually doing anything towards it.
An action that you can take is open up a special savings account, keep it separate to your current account so that you can’t just access it when you feel you need a bit of extra money. Set up a direct debit to that savings account – even if you start with saving just $ 1 a week. By transferring that money over on a weekly basis, you will have $ 52 at the end of the year.
Yes, it may not be that much money, and you may not be able to do that much with it, but it’s $ 52 more than you had at the beginning of the year. By showing the Universe that you are disciplined enough to make that start in putting money away, it will come to the party and you will find extra money coming in. Your mind will start thinking differently when you’re spending money – you’ll go “Hmmm, do I want to spend my money on xyz, or would I rather put it into savings?” You start making better conscious choices of where you want to put your money.
Think about what you want, make sure it falls in line with your priorities and values, and then start taking inspired action. Keep an eye out for those little signs from the Universe that it gives you to follow so that you can end up making your dream your reality.
I hope those tips are helpful for you and I’d love you to share any ideas you have, or how you’ve gone about manifesting in your life.
