We have all heard about the “woo hoo” practice of manifestation and how it can change our lives. Turn our dreams into reality. Attract love, abundance, health and all of our deepest desires. It seems so far-fetched and out there that sometimes we don’t even really try to manifest anything at all. But you know what? We are constantly manifesting, whether we like it or not. Our energy is either repelling or attracting in every moment, of every day.
So, I don’t know about you, but if I am already going through the process of manifesting, I want to shift my energy to becoming a super attractor of all things amazing.
I have been so inspired these past couple of weeks. I am receiving excited messages, almost daily, from participants of my last workshop- The Magic of Manifestation. Things are working for them! They are communicating their desires and seeing it working with the universe. They are feeling inspired, guided, supported and best of all…dreams are coming true.
The great news is that the woo-hooey-ness of manifestation can actually be more simple than we’ve been taught to believe. I won’t go into giving away all of the secrets of manifesting your dream life (yet), but I will teach you a few surprising ways that you can attract abundance into your life.
Numero Uno: Clean out your purse
Yep, When we want to attract something new into our lives, we need to let go of, and “clean out”, anything that is no longer serving us, but taking up space and energy. So, those old crumpled up receipts at the bottom of your bag? They’ve gotta go. Folded up bills and random scattered coins everywhere? Clean it up chica. The universe wants to see that you respect money and that you have space for more money in your wallet, your purse, your bank account and your life.
We can declutter anything in our lives. Want to attract new love? Let go of attachments and relationships that aren’t fueling your fuego, if you know what I mean. Want to attract health and wellness into your life? Clear out your schedule and make room for a healthy morning routine. You get the point. Now, onto step number two.
Numero Dos: Express gratitude
If you know me, you may have picked up on the fact that I firmly believe gratitude is the answer for pretty much almost anything. So, if you are looking to attract abundance in your life, take a moment to express gratitude for the amazing blessings you already have. This may seem like an interesting one, especially if you are someone who is currently struggling and you are in desperate need of attracting abundance and financial freedom in your life.
When we live with a scarcity mindset and continuously focus on what we are lacking, we attract this same energy, maintaining this reality of never having enough. If we align our energy with gratitude for what we already have, the universe picks up on this and delivers more. So, grab a pen and paper right now and write down a list of ten things for which you are grateful. Try to incorporate this into your morning routine or do this practice right before you go to sleep.
Numero tres: Be generous
“Whaaat??!! But I don’t have enough to pay my own rent. How the heck am I going to give to others?” Yea, I feel you. Another one that seems a bit counterintuitive. However, can you see how giving and generosity brings us out of the scarcity mindset I mentioned before, and brings us towards a mindset of abundance?
I’m sure you can find creative ways to be generous. Donating old clothes or toys. Supporting small businesses when you have your one night out a month. Being generous of your time with your friends and family. Offering your services and gifts for free or at a discount for those in need. Caring for a child of a new mother or going for a walk with an elderly neighbor. Buying a coffee for the person behind you in line. Doubling your recipe when you make dinner and offer it to a friend or neighbor in need.
Or if you have the means, being financially generous towards people and organizations that you are inspired to support. The more generous we are, the more we are practicing being in an energy of abundance, rather than sitting in an energy of scarcity and not enough-ness.
Numero cuatro: Shift your language
Do you often say, “I can’t afford that” or “I don’t have enough money for that” or “Why don’t I ever have enough?”. Instead of focusing on everything you don’t have, practice shifting your language to affirmations of abundance. One that I am known to shout out every now and then is, “I live in abundance!” And you know what? I say it like I mean it. Want another glass of wine? Sure, I’ll treat you. “I live in abundance”. Want to book the direct flight instead of the one with two stops? You betcha. “I live in abundance.” Want to go on vacation this summer? “Yes! I live in abundance.” The great thing with positive affirmations is that you can fake it ’till you make it. We can literally rewire our brains to believe what we tell ourselves. The universe picks up on the energy of our language, so give your language some positive, abundant energy. What do you say?
Here are a few more of my favorite affirmations to attract abundance into your life
- “I am a money magnet”
- “Prosperity flows to me and through me with ease”
- “I am healthy, wealthy and happy”
- “Money flows to me with ease”

- “I am worthy of a life of financial abundance”
- “I am abundant in love, wealth, health and happiness”
- “I have more than enough”
So, there you go. Four ways to attract abundance into your life. Were they surprising? I hope these examples take a bit of the “woo-hooey-ness” out of manifestation for you and build your confidence in becoming a super attractor. Remember, we are always attracting or repelling. The choice is yours.
