Step 1: Get Rid Of Limiting Beliefs
Goal: Any negative underlying assumptions about money will stand in the way of achieving financial abundance. It’s very common to have felt sad, scared, disappointed or even angry about money, but only by shifting your emotions towards love and joy will you get what you want.
Timing: 1-7 days. You don’t want to spend huge amounts of time on counterproductive ideas, but you also have to look deep into your thoughts and be truthful with yourself about what you believe—and what you’d like to believe.
Action Item: Think of all the reasons you genuinely love money. Some good examples include “I love money because it allows me to do good in this world”, and “I love money because it gives me freedom” (but it’s important to make sure the list reflects your thoughts).
Tip: When creating affirmations based on your positive reasons to love money, remember that saying them out loud isn’t the only way to give them power—you can also integrate them into artwork, set them as reminders on your phone, or write them down into a prominently displayed list.
Step 2: Set A Clear Intention
Goal: Specificity is key when it comes to asking the universe for things. If you can’t quite decide how much money you want to manifest, why or when, then the universe is not going to know either.
Timing: 3-14 days. The timing is very personal—it depends on your current stage of goal-setting. If you’ve had a vivid image of your future for a while now, you can start drafting a dream board immediately. However, if you’re not quite sure that your intention is just right, you may want to take even more than 14 days to decide what your priorities are.
Tools: Dream board.
Action Item: Play around with different ways of phrasing your specific intention—try 5-10 different ways of wording it. When something feels right and your intention is set, make it into a dream board. Also, be sure to work your intention into everything you do with the Law of Attraction (especially the affirmations you say to yourself).
Tip: Look around for template dream boards and inspirational examples. Don’t be afraid to go online when you’re creating, too—Pinterest is a great place to have an eDreamBoard.
Step 3: Actively Respect And Love Money
Goal: When you live your life as though money is a wonderful thing that you respect, you’ll often find that money naturally starts to gravitate to you more often (and in larger amounts). Try not to think of yourself as trying to get money but rather as having already achieved wealth. Remember, according to the Law of Attraction, something becomes yours as soon as you ask for it.
Timing: 14-30 days is a typical timeframe for beginning to notice changes associated with this step, but your unique situation could call for more or less time than this.
Tools: Living “in the knowing.”
Action Item: Get a beautiful new wallet, or empty your current one of anything that’s wasteful, negative or irrelevant. Think of it as creating a sanctuary for your intentions. Meanwhile, spend your money on things that support your self-care and your love for others.
Tip: Consider smelling money every day—when you expose your brain to this distinctive odor, you come into a kind of vibrational alignment with money. You become one with money in a certain sense, and that draws more of it towards you.
Step 4: Tune Into Your Intuition
Goal: When you have a clear intention and are working every day to send out consistent signals about financial abundance, your faculty of intuition will naturally sharpen. However, not everyone knows how to identify their intuitions, or feels confident about following them. In this stage of your action plan, you’ll become increasingly able to notice the universe’s signposts.
Timing: 7-14 days, depending on how much work you need to do on connecting with your emotions and gut instincts.
Action Item: To tune into your intuitions, try a new daily visualization exercise that involves focusing on your core. Picture light or heat in the center of your body, where you’ll often feel the most intense, instant emotional responses to events.
Tip: Look out for coincidences, unexpected encounters, new invitations—basically, anything that feels different and evokes a sense of excitement or possibility is probably something you’ve been sent in order to guide you to abundance. Reading Law of Attraction success stories can be a great help if you’re not sure what to look for.
Step 5: Let Go And Trust The Universe
Goal: Any execution plan for manifesting money has to involve learning to live without anxiety.
Timing: You can achieve this in 7 days, but most people periodically need to come back to this step to remind themselves to let go.
Tools: Gratitude journal.
Action Item: Write in your gratitude journal to ensure you feel good about every day and appreciate all the small steps on the road to your ideal life.
Tip: Remember that once you’ve set clear intentions and committed to practicing the appropriate manifestation techniques every day, you’ve done absolutely everything you can do to set your desires in motion. The universe wants to help you, and is doing so every day.
