What You Think About, You Bring About
What do you believe about yourself and the world around you? If your thoughts don’t align with what is essential to your life and what you want to manifest, how can anyone expect them to come true? This blog post will give some tips on how to start being mindful of our inner beliefs and thoughts and begin manifesting abundance into you life.
“Manifesting Abundance,” or the practice of thinking inspirational thoughts to make them real, has never been more popular. From late March to mid-July, Google searches for the term have skyrocketed 669 percent; “Shut Up I’m Manifesting” is among the deﬁning memes of 2020. Even pre-pandemic, interest had been gradually rising since around 2017, alongside burgeoning conversations around wellness and self-care.
The Law of Attraction states that the things you believe inwardly and project outwardly will be the things that you attract into your life.Point in case, who hasn’t heard of the runaway bestseller, “The Secret.” Simultaneously, as stereotypically woo-woo practices involving crystals, essential oils, tarot, and energy wavelengths have reached the general consciousness, professionals and inﬂuencers touting these methods are becoming more acceptable.
At this moment, all we can do is hope for a better future than the one we’re all currently living in. So it’s no wonder the practice of manifesting has exploded. Like so many other quarantine trends: homemaking, bread baking, tie-dyeing, or learning TikTok dances — manifesting a purposeful vision feels like a way to accomplish something we have control over. Especially in a time when we’re mostly powerless to eﬀect any real change. What do you have to lose?
The Law of Attraction says that whatever you focus on will attract into your life. Whatever you give your energy and attention to will come back to you. All you need are your dreams and to think about how nice it would be if they all came true.
Clearly State Your Money Goals
The ﬁrst step in manifesting abundance or anything for that matter, is by being speciﬁc about what you want and why you want it. The same goes for money. If you’re going to master how to manifest money, you ﬁrst need to be clear about why you need it.
This step is very critical because it speciﬁes your intentions for the money. The purpose has to be aligned with the highest good for the Universe to support you. So ensure that your choices are not selﬁsh or self-directed.
You should be focused on the greater good. Being mindful of others does not necessarily mean that you should give all the money away. Instead, it is about using the money to positively impact your life and the lives of those around you.
For example, do you want money to pay oﬀ a debt? Buy a house? Or pay school fees for your children? Whatever your ‘why’ is, be very clear about it.
Do not just desire money for the sake of it. Go ahead and write it down because this will crystallize your intentions and add ﬁre to your focus.
Make your list as comprehensive as possible and include all the things you would want to do with the money.

Dream Boards & Manifesting Abundance
A dream board (also known as a vision board) is a way of visually representing your aims, whether they’re ﬁnancial, romantic, spiritual, or something else entirely.
Creating a dream board is an inexpensive and very creative way of connecting with your desires for the future. The dream boards are made using everything from natural objects to drawings and magazine cutouts.
When you create a vision board, you physically identify your vision and dreams and reinforce your daily aﬃrmations.
If you are looking for more inspiration on creating your own, you can explore more dream board examples and ideas. These vision boards need to be personal and unique to you; anything you ﬁnd that motivates and inspires you should go on the board.
Your vision board is great to have in your oﬃce or on the wall in your bedroom, for example. You can have them there in the background, keeping you motivated and within your subconscious.
An aﬃrmation is a simple statement that reshapes your beliefs and helps you move towards your life goals. Obviously, for this to work in your favor, they need to be positive aﬃrmations.
An aﬃrmation is a repeated and spoken statement. However, you can include visual aﬃrmations too.
An example of a spoken, daily aﬃrmation would be if you stand in front of your mirror and say to yourself, “I love having a great job and being happy in my own skin.” You would use this aﬃrmation if you are trying to ﬁnd a better job or if you want to build your self-conﬁdence, and your goal is to feel happy with yourself.
The Law of Attraction works on the basis that the Universe recognizes your thoughts and energies. Therefore, if you can put positive aﬃrmations and energy into the world, the Universe will respond to it. Repetition plays a big part in your daily aﬃrmations. The more we tell ourselves something, the more the message is accepted by our self-consciousness and can be manifested in our lives.
The idea of a visual aﬃrmation is that there is a physical concrete form of your aﬃrmation.
Examples of these would be:
- Write down your aﬃrmations on small post-its and placing the notes where you can always see them. It is also a good idea to have your notes stuck near the area connected to your goals, such as a mirror, if you are looking to improve your self-image and self-worth.
- Set up reminders on your phone so that your aﬃrmation regularly appears in front of you. Have daily reminders each morning or before you sleep.
- Write out your aﬃrmations at the beginning or end of the day. This journaling can also connect with gratitude journals.
- For example, Try the aﬃrmation, “I am making positive choices about what to do with my money and enjoying the energy of abundance that it reﬂects.
“A belief is a thought you continue to think. Whatever your mind focuses on gets bigger.”
Meditation is a powerful tool for achieving your goals. It has been studied extensively, and the beneﬁts are well documented. These include increased focus, creativity, energy, and self-awareness as well as reduced stress levels. What’s more? Meditation can also be done anywhere with just a few minutes to spare!
When you meditate, you start to gain access to your inner self more than you probably ever have. You enter into an alpha or theta state of consciousness. In this relaxed state, your brain waves slow down from beta levels (regular waking activity) to alpha levels (relaxation). This change in frequency can help open up channels of communication between your conscious and unconscious mind. As a result, being fully present and “in that moment” creates a positive space where you can truly focus on yourself to visualize goals and aspirations.
Meditating also helps your brain release any negative energy. It also gives your brain the space to go wherever it wants, which is very helpful when visualizing. If this is a new concept for you, it’s recommended to spend 10 minutes per day just focusing on your breath ﬁrst.
Talking with Money to Manifest a New Money Reality
This idea is probably the weirdest and craziest thing I’ve done to attract money. But for me, this technique works because it enhances my visualization power. I talk with my money. I physically pull dollar bills out of my wallet, feel the crisp paper, and look at the faces of each denomination. I order them sequentially by value and then let my dollars know they are responsible for growing the “family.” Some of my dollars are directed to stay put in my wallet. Other dollars are given the task of creating interest or being invested.
In fact, according to the Journal of Consumer Research, the pain of paying in cash can curb impulsive urges to purchase unhealthy food products. Money feels more real, and people inherently “see and feel” the bills leaving their wallets. Credit card payments, in contrast, are relatively painless and weaken impulse control. With plastic, it’s too easy to overspend as there is no sense of pain, and we quickly forget what was charged on the card until we open the statement 30 days later! Consequently, consumers are more likely to buy unhealthy food products when they pay by credit card than when they pay in cash.
The Wallet Process
The “wallet process” is a very famous exercise taught by Abraham-Hicks. The idea is to get a $100 bill and keep it in your wallet all the time. Then you have it there as a “reference point” to always feel certain and sure about it because it’s there. The exercise’s whole point is to visualize spending that $100 as many times as you can during the day – which could be 20 or 30 or more times. You get the vibrational equivalent of spending $2,000-$ 3,000 then, rather than if you spent the $100 immediately after having it in your possession.
So, for me, I’d be saying to myself, I could buy these things now if I really wanted to. Maybe I would love to eat at my favorite restaurant around the corner or buy a new pair of khaki pants? I could eat Sushi all by myself! I like having that money in my possession. Heck! I could buy organic coﬀee at Whole Foods and also donate to a non-proﬁt. I could buy stuﬀ for my Pop-Up camper; I could get toys for my dog Samson. Or, I could take a little get-a-way and hike at Yosemite.
Your list will be very diﬀerent, but that is ok. Just spend your $100 as many times as you can think of it (don’t say that you’ll save it – the goal is to get used to spending it in your mind). Suppose you practice this process for a short while. In that case, your negative worries around money will become less resistant, and therefore, will allow more money to ﬂow to you. It gives you the feeling of more prosperity when you can say “no” to material wants daily.
Unleash Your Creative Mind & Manifest
To summarize: What you believe inwardly has power. What you project outwardly will be the things that you attract into your life. It may take time to recognize the talents in ourselves but once we do, they become like magic wands that help us shape our lives into what feels right for us. If this is true, then why not harness positive energy and use it to increase your happiness? Believe in yourself. Manifest what you want out of life!
