What is Manifesting Abundance?
Let’s kick off by defining what manifesting abundance is.
Abundance is when things are plentiful. There is an over-supply. There is more than enough to go round. When most people think of abundance, it’s about having more money. However, abundance could also mean great health, many positive relationships or success in all your endeavors.
Manifesting is about making it appear or happen in your life. It’s making it come true for you.
In the past, scarcity was the reality for most people. There were famines, a lack of resources and an uneven distribution of wealth and land ownership. For the vast majority of people, life was hard back then.
This is not the case now for most people. If you can read this article, then you have access to an abundance of information, knowledge and wisdom. It’s also likely that you have your basic needs met.
What is an Abundance Mindset?
A key component to manifesting abundance is having an abundance mindset. But what does this look like?
An abundance mindset is a way of thinking that makes it easier to attract abundance and the things you desire.
Some people naturally have this abundance mindset. These are the people that seem to become successful with less effort. They appear to have natural talents. This abundance mindset is something they do unconsciously.
For most of us, it requires some conscious work and effort to develop an abundance mindset. It may not be a natural skill yet, but it will come with practice. The key thing to know is that manifesting abundance and developing an abundance mindset is a skill that you can learn. This article will teach you how.
Some characteristics of an abundance mindset include:
- Believing that there is more than enough to go around.
- Being an optimist.
- Being happy for other people’s success.
- Thinking big.
- Being proactive.
- Embracing change.
- Learning constantly.
How to Know When You’re Successfully Manifesting Abundance
The most obvious way is when money or the thing you desire becomes a reality. This can take time, so here are some other things to look out for.
- Synchronicity. You notice coincidences. Things naturally coming together. You find you are getting more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
- Opportunities. There are 2 parts to this. Firstly, you will see opportunities that were always there, but you hadn’t noticed them until now. Secondly, you will feel more inspired and motivated to act on all opportunities as they arise.
- A more natural state of being. Life becomes fun, rewarding, fulfilling and meaningful. Doing the work involved seems effortless. You have plenty of energy, a clear head and you feel calm.
10 Steps to Manifesting Abundance & Prosperity
You now know what manifesting abundance is and what an abundance mindset looks like. So I’ll now cover 10 ways to help you become a master at manifesting abundance.
1. Visualize and Create a Vision Board
The first step to manifesting abundance is to know what you want and make this very clear in your mind.
A wonderful way to do this is to use Creative Visualization. See yourself having abundant money, health, relationships or success. Bring in other senses too, such as hearing, feeling, taste and touch.
You can make this more real by creating a vision board. Find photos of your dream house, dream car or dream job on the internet. Print them out and put them on the board. You could even create a vision board on your computer that contains these photos and perhaps videos too.
It’s super important that your brain thinks and imagines your manifesting goals frequently. This is why vision boards work so well. If it’s prominent in your home, then you’ll see it every day. This activates a part of your brain called the Reticular Activating System (RAS). The RAS then notices people, places and opportunities that can make this goal a reality.
If vision boards aren’t your thing, put photos of what you want in prominent places around your home, so you see it every day. The fridge, wardrobe doors and bathroom mirrors are excellent places.
2. Get Specific
The Universe loves specificity. The more specific you are about your goals and intentions, the better.
Write down precisely what you want to bring into your life. This is fundamental to manifesting abundance. Identify the things, people, places, situations and experiences that you want to manifest. Get into all the juicy details!
When manifesting money, decide on the precise amount and exact date that you want it. If it’s manifesting your perfect partner, what will this person look like and what personality traits will they have. If it’s abundant health, how will you know when you have it? Will it be more energy, feeling more vibrant or being able to run 5K without stopping.
It’s important to be specific and precise about what you want. However, you want to be open and flexible about how it will come into your life. Be open to possibilities and options that you may not have thought of.
3. Look Beyond the 5 Senses
You’ve probably heard people say “I’ll believe it when I see it”. This is an unhelpful lie! Would Thomas Edison have created the light bulb If he thought this way? Of course not! He was thinking and imagining the light bulb in his mind, long before it became a reality.
When manifesting abundance, you want to bring in 3 invisible yet critical components. These are thoughts, imagination and positive feelings.
Anything you want to manifest in your life begins with a positive thought. You want to ensure that your thoughts are about what you do want, not about what you don’t want.
For example, “I want to have enough money to pay my bills, save for the future, and have some leftover for fun activities”, is much better than “I don’t want to be broke and struggling to make ends meet”.
Why? Because your subconscious mind cannot process a thought about what you don’t want. It has to think about and imagine being broke and struggling whenever you think this thought.
This is vividly imagining your goal or desire. The imagination is powerful in manifesting abundance. However, like thinking, ensure that you are imagining what you do want, rather than what you don’t want.
How you feel right now influences the level of vibration that goes out to the Universe. This explains why everything seems to go wrong when you’re having a foul day. Or why activities seem effortless and natural when having a wonderful day.
When manifesting abundance, feelings are often overlooked. I’ll go into the importance of positive feelings later in this article.
4. Deal with Limiting Beliefs (Money Blocks)
Your beliefs about money and abundance have a massive influence on your ability to bring all the wonderful things into your life. You might have heard of the term “money blocks” or “abundance blocks”. These are limiting beliefs that hold you back.
Beliefs are simply repetitive thoughts that define what you can and can’t do. They define what is possible for you and what isn’t.
Here are 2 common limiting beliefs about money and abundance.
There is Never Enough.
This is believing that there is a limited or finite amount of money available. That if one person has more, someone automatically has less.
It’s also believing that you will never have enough money. It can go deeper to believing that you are not enough as a person.
Basing Your Self-Worth on Money
This is believing you need a certain amount of money to feel good in society. Or that people with more money have greater intelligence, are better with people, or can work crazy hours.
When you lack money, this belief system can make you feel inferior. This is because you base your success and self-worth on money.
When you have lots of money, you fear losing it, because you tie your self-worth to it. This fear can prevent you from enjoying the money that you have.
Dealing with Limiting Beliefs (Money Blocks)
I encourage you to become very conscious and self-aware of your thoughts, feelings and energy around money. Notice the stories you tell yourself regarding money and abundance.
As soon as you notice a negative or limiting thought, change it immediately. The thought “I can’t afford to pay the rent or bills”, could be changed to a thought of gratitude. This could be being grateful for what you already have, such as your career, health or relationships.
Do this every time you notice a limiting thought. It’s simple, but it takes consistency and persistence.
5. Develop Positive Emotional States
With manifesting abundance, I believe that developing positive emotional states is absolutely essential. The influence of emotions on manifesting is often over-looked and this will be to your detriment.
When I feel frustrated, impatient or overwhelmed when I’m working, I’ll find that my computer crashes or the printer stops working. When I’m desperate to complete a task, the phone will ring constantly or I’ll be interrupted in other ways. I’ve seen this happen so many times now, that I know that the negative energy that I’m giving out is influencing what happens around me.
So when you’re in a negative emotional state, you’ll attract problems! You’ll worry more and perhaps blame other people. You might say things like “nothing works!”, “it’s all too hard”. Tasks seem like a chore and you’re in a funk.
Why is this? Well, you’re energetic vibration is low, so things seem harder. And you attract other situations that match this energetic vibration.
Of course, it works the other way too. When you’re on an emotional high, everything flows naturally. That emotional high comes from accomplishment and success. However, this is a catch-22, because you need positive emotional states to achieve things and be successful.
So the solution is to consciously choose these emotional states. You can choose to feel happy, confident, successful or joyful whenever you want. This is not easy and it takes some practice. Think of times in the past when you experienced these emotions and then notice your energetic vibration increase. An immediate change in your vibration will influence what comes your way.
Here are two other ideas in relation to money and emotions
Firstly, money will go up and down throughout your life. Economic cycles and other factors influence the amount of money you have. However, your happiness and emotional state is constant and is within your control. As long as you have enough to live on, avoid basing your happiness on money.
Secondly, spend money wisely and intentionally. Avoid spending money recklessly or emotionally. If you feel like some retail therapy, look for other ways to develop positive emotional states that don’t involve spending money on things you might regret later.
6. Increase Your Self-Worth
This is feeling worthy and entitled to the things you want to manifest in your life. You realise that manifesting abundance requires some work and effort. However, when you have high self-worth, you know that when you put in the work, you’ll get positive results, because you are a good person.
So it’s believing that you are worthy of abundance and capable of attracting, creating and manifesting abundance.
Do you feel worthy of abundance? Or do you feel that this is for other people and not you?
If you feel that your self-worth requires a boost, here are some ways to help you do that.
- Identify and focus on your strengths and what you’re good at.
- Make time for you. Spend that time doing something that you love.
- Do things that get you out of your comfort zone.
- Be willing to ask for help (and accept help) from other people.
- Have goals and a clear road-map of where you want your life to go.
- Be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life and for what is working well for you.
7. Develop a Positive Attitude
When you have a positive attitude and an optimistic outlook on life, you’ll find it easier to attract the things you want. You’ll see the silver lining in every situation. You’ll smile more and complain less. And give more with no thought of reward.
Self-denying and self-defeating thoughts prevent you from noticing and experiencing the abundance available to you.
Here are a few ways to develop a positive attitude
- Use positive affirmations to replace limiting thoughts and negative internal self-talk.
- Focus on what is working well, however small.
- When something bad or unexpected happens, think of 5 other ways to look at it. What other meanings could you give to this?
- Have a daily morning routine. This will help you start the day with a positive mindset.
8. Take Inspired Action
A crucial component to manifesting abundance is taking inspired action. This is acting from a place of love, rather than a place of lack.
You can also take inspired action by acting as if you have manifested the abundance already. A wonderful way to do this is by dream building. This is a lot of fun and works best with material goals.
Examples of dream building are visiting million dollar properties that are for sale. Or going to luxury car exhibitions or showrooms and sitting in your dream car, or taking it for a test drive. If you do this, remember to take some photos to add to your vision board.
Inspired action is doing more of what makes you feel good and less of what feels bad to you. So how do you know when you are taking inspired action? Here are some clues:
- You’ll feel excitement, energy, motivation and joy.
- It seems effortless and not a struggle.
- You’re in the zone.
- It doesn’t feel like work.
- You lose track of time.
9. Play the Prosperity Game
Abraham Hicks developed the prosperity game. It’s a mental game of receiving money from the Universe. This game will help you to:
- Create a positive energy shift. This will then increase your energetic vibration.
- Expand your awareness of what is possible.
- Stretch your imagination.
- Help replace limiting beliefs with positive ones.
- Release any resistance you have around money.
Here is how to play it.
- Decide how much money you will receive from the Universe today. If you can’t decide, start with $1000.
- See yourself spending this entire amount of money in your imagination. What would you spend it on?
- The next day, double the amount of money you receive from the Universe.
You can see how this can quickly become an enormous amount of money to spend! This is what will stretch your imagination and change your belief about what is possible.
Like any game, there are a few rules. These are:
- You must spend all the money each day.
- You can’t give money away to charities. You want to have the mindset that unlimited abundance is available to everyone, so charities have all the money they need.
- You can’t give money to others, unless it’s their birthday. Remember, everyone else has all the money they need too.
- You can’t save it. Saving implies that you might not have enough in the future.
10. Express Gratitude
Everything happens in the non-physical world, before it manifests in the physical world. So you can express gratitude and appreciation before it appears.
You can thank the Universe for creating this in the non-physical world. You then know that it’s just a matter of time before you see it for real.
Expressing gratitude and thanks also removes any resistance to having it appear in your life. It helps strengthen your belief in manifesting abundance.
Also, feel gratitude and appreciation for what you already have. Especially the struggles and difficult people. These are your greatest teachers. You need the lows to appreciate the highs.
Being grateful for what you already have results in more positive emotions and energy. As you learned earlier, positive emotions, increase your energetic vibration. This then allows more wonderful things to be manifested and attracted into your life.
Now you realize that manifesting abundance is something that you can master by incorporating the above 10-steps to your life. Take some time now to apply these steps and notice your ability to manifest skyrocket!
