If you’ve been following my posts for a while, you may have noticed that my website recently received a major (and well overdue) makeover. I’m suuuper excited!
One of the reasons I’ve been wanting to redesign my site for a while is that I’ve been feeling the urge to expand and connect with a larger community outside of Facebook after a time of rebuilding my foundation in a more protected space and having some pretty awesome breakthroughs in my business and personal life. Aaaand … I’ve been itching to blog more.
Today is the day I finally get to write my first blog post, and I was wondering what I could share with you to celebrate this special new beginning. Since my recent months have been all about creating new joy, abundance, and expanding beyond limitations in life and business, I thought I’d write an article to share some of my favourite abundance creation tips with you—3 simple principles I’ve applied over and over again in the last 8 years to manifest many of my desires into reality—including starting my first (and second) business, meeting my soul mate, finding dream homes with ease, creating money, attracting clients, and more.
Just recently, I used these principles to attract way more soul mate clients than ever before in my coaching business, and hand in hand with that, I celebrated a long awaited financial breakthrough. Now, if you’re ready to soar to your next level of joy and magical amazingness in your life and business, I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer! Here are my 3 favourite steps to manifest abundance:
1. Know What Your Heart Desires
This one is of key importance no matter what you are desiring to manifest in your life and business. You can only manifest what you want if you KNOW what you want. This may seem obvious at first, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t know what they truly and deeply desire.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, it can be easy to get sucked into other people’s expectations and make them your own (if you’re an empath, you may even be confusing other people’s desires with your own), or to desire something that is considered valuable and important according to societal standards, but that is never really a true recipe for lasting joy, fulfillment, and success.
And sometimes, it can be tempting to confuse the journey with the destination—so before you go ahead and “manifest” anything, be sure to double check with yourself if it is what you truly desire or if it’s just something you *think* you should do to get what you truly want.
Abundance manifests when you allow yourself to go for what your heart desires, not what your mind thinks is appropriate or realistic. The more you give yourself permission to follow your heart, the more effortlessly your desires will manifest into reality—and this applies to absolutely everything, including money, love, clients, dream homes, and anything else you desire to bring into your life.
P.S. Don’t be afraid to dream BIG! Abundance = NO limitations!
2. Declare Yourself Ready
Next, it’s time to ditch those excuses you’ve been using to stop yourself from going for what you truly and deeply desire. The truth is that in this moment, everything you need to turn your heart’s desires into reality is already within you. You have all the necessary skills and talents, all the time and energy, and all the resources (or the ability to create them effortlessly if needed). Everything else is a lie that your mind is telling you to hold you back from living your true potential.
In other words, the question isn’t: “When will the timing be right?” But: “Why aren’t you giving yourself permission to embrace your heart’s desires right NOW?”
Every sentence that starts with “before I can ___________________, I have to ___________________ …” indicates a limiting belief that is stopping you. The blank after “before I can …” is your true desire, the blank after “I have to …” is the limiting belief. And behind the limiting belief, there is something else (that’s sometimes more difficult to see): fear!
Often, it doesn’t take hard work or extraordinary skills to make big things happen (especially the things we truly and deeply desire)—what it takes more than anything is courage!
So the question is: What are you afraid of? And what can you do right now to face your fear and do it anyway?
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Action steps: Make a list of all your excuses and burn it. Then, go ahead and make a list of new empowering statements, and read this list out loud every day for the next 30 days. (Create your own ritual if you like.)
3. Embody Abundance
Finally, in order to manifest abundance, it’s important to be in the right energy. You cannot create abundance by thinking scarcity thoughts or making decisions based on a perception of lack. Everything you do, think, and speak has to match what you desire to create.
In other words: How can you BE this person who lives in abundance right now?
Partly, this is about the action steps you take, but more importantly, you want to begin by creating a feeling of abundance within yourself—because that’s where it all really starts. The feeling is the prayer! Everything external will fall into place naturally once all of your thoughts, decisions, and actions are inspired from this place.
Action steps: Make a list of 20 things you could easily put into action right now to create a feeling of abundance within yourself. For example, this could be things like taking a bubble bath, going out for supper with someone you love (or taking yourself out on a date), booking a weekend at a spa hotel, planting a garden, listening to an abundance meditation, relaxing your mind and letting go of worries about money. Get creative! Then, go ahead and put at least one thing on your list into action today. (And then keep taking consistent action every day—consistent action creates consistent results.)
