In my coaching work, one of the questions I get asked most often is: “What’s an easy way to attract more money?”
The answer is simple, but not easy. Actually, it’s easy, too, but often times our mental blocks make it difficult. To give you a little background, I have manifested money in a few different ways: Sometimes it came as gifts, or just arrived out of nowhere; but more often than not, it came in the form of opportunities for me to earn it. I have been paid to do almost everything you can imagine: Play videogames, travel the world with my best friend, post on Facebook, and gamble professionally with other people’s money.
The point is, be as open as possible to the Universe sending you what you want in ways you may not have expected. A common mistake people make with the Law of Attraction is getting overly attached to getting what they want in a certain way; they get so obsessed with winning a million dollars in the lottery, that they ignore a million dollar business opportunity that comes their way.
So, here are some simple steps you can take to attract more money. We’ve already covered being open to it arriving in an unexpected way. Not only should you be open to it, it should be part of your intention. Having what you intend to happen come in a truly unexpected way is one of the best tests you’ve got to know what you’ve really attracted, versus something that is ‘just’ a coincidence.
Start with something small; if you don’t have a lot of experience manifesting what you want, it is a mistake to start trying to attract a million dollars. The reason why this is, is the Law of Attraction is powered by faith and belief, and what you truly expect to happen is what will happen. You’ve had a lifetime to build up certain thoughts, habits, and beliefs, and that has caused you to manifest the exact life that you have right now. Quite frankly, if you had million dollar thoughts, habits, and beliefs, you’d already have a million dollars! Start with a much smaller amount, something that seems reasonable to you; maybe $5, $50, or $5,000; whatever amount seems like no big deal to attract.
Once you have the dollar amount in mind, start to imagine what you’d do with that money, because here is a secret: You don’t actually want money; you want what money can buy. Maybe it’s an item, like a new computer; or an experience, like a vacation. Maybe it’s a new outfit or even a nice dinner out with friends. You can pick whatever you want, or more than one thing; it doesn’t matter what you choose to visualize, as long as it makes you feel good!
You know you are on the right track if you get excited when you think about it. It should make you feel excited, and maybe a tiny bit scared. But, if you find yourself wondering about how it’s possible to manifest, that’s a good sign you’ve picked something too big, for now.
Once you have it in mind, think about these things, and how it’s going to feel once it shows up. Think about it as often as possible, without worrying about how it is going to happen. If you find yourself wondering what’s taking so long, or stressing about it, put it out of your mind. This might mean thinking about it once a day, or 100 times; it just depends on you.
One important point is to make sure you take 3-5 minutes to think about it in the morning when you wake up, and at night before bed. Your subconscious mind is most open to receive instructions from you right when you wake up, and right before you go to sleep, so make sure you make the most of this time. You should also pay attention to ideas that come to you as soon as you wake up, since this is when your subconscious tends to send you messages.
The only other thing you have to do, is to be truly grateful for what you already have, since if you aren’t grateful for what you have, you won’t be grateful with more. There was a time that you were wishing you could get the job you have now, and make the money you have now, if you aren’t careful you will never be truly satisfied. Taking time to thank God/The Universe every single day for everything you have just opens the door wider for more to arrive.
And, that’s it! Pick an amount, decide what life will look like once it arrives, think about it as often as possible without stressing over it, and thank God/The Universe for the blessings you’ve already got, and for the blessings that are on their way. Once the money arrives, repeat the process with larger and larger amounts until you are living the life of your dreams.
