If things are feeling tight, frustrating and overwhelming in your business, you’ll love the following 20 tips and practical ideas to attract more abundance, money and space so you can feel supported and inspired.
I use a combination of these things daily to raise my energy level and manifest more money, freedom and abundance. Pick a few and see which ones you like and do them regularly!
1 – WRITE A LETTER TO MONEY
Writing a letter to money is a powerful exercise that can help you practice forgiveness, release old money stories and help you start loving money. There’s no right or wrong way to do this, just find a quiet space with pen and paper and ask yourself; ‘what do I want to say to money?’. Let the words flow.
2 – SWEAT IT OUT TO DETACH FROM THE OUTCOME
One of the biggest blocks of abundance is being attached to the outcome – we can literally grip onto what we want like a stage 5 clinger! Instead we need to learn how to gently detach from the outcome.
One of the best ways to do this is with exercise! I find when I’m manifesting something and simply can’t stop worrying about it, I’ll head to the park and go for a run. When I’m running I mentally tell myself ‘I’m letting go and I know that the universe is supporting me’. Try sweating it out and releasing any attachment.
3 – DECLUTTER YOUR BUSINESS AND PHYSICAL WORKSPACE
Decluttering helps to remove stagnant energy and create new space for abundance to flow to you with ease. It also lifts your energy up because you have less baggage and more room to breathe, create and attract what you do want. You can find lists and a guide to decluttering your business and workspace right here.
4 – VISUALISE YOURSELF ALREADY HAVING WHAT YOU WANT
This is a powerful tip – visualise yourself already having what you want. Literally feel it into your being, feel it in your body, the way you walk, talk and dress. I use a dream jar which has all my big life goals written on pieces of paper. Each day I pull one out and spend 2 minutes imagining myself already having achieved this goal. It’s a simple daily practice that has true magic to it.
5 – THROW KINDNESS AROUND LIKE CONFETTI
The saying “nice guys finish last” is a load of bull! When you show random acts of kindness you’re letting the universe know that you’re already living an abundant life and that you know this kindness will come back to you. Start small by sharing another girl bosses blog on your social media or sending a random email to compliment and encourage a client who may need a boost of support….because nice gals finish first.
6 – WRITE YOUR SPECIFIC MONEY GOAL THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY
Remind yourself of your money goal (make it very specific!) each day by either writing it in your to do list or notebook first thing, using it as your password so you have to retype it often or drawing a beautiful sketch featuring it in the design. There is power in using pen to paper daily to write that beautiful goal down.
7 – DO A FULL MOON RITUAL TO RELEASE OLD MONEY BLOCKS
The full moon is a wonderful time to release limiting beliefs or let go of what no longer serves you. Many of us use it as a time to let go of self doubt or fear, but try getting more specific and focusing on your money blocks or money stories. Write down what is blocking you, then burn the paper under the full moon. I soak my paper in water to drown it because I live in an apartment and starting a fire isn’t the best idea! Find what works for you!
8 – GET PINNING AND SCRAPBOOKING TO MAKE A DREAM BOARD
Make your own dream board that features aspirational images of what you want to manifest and what you want to create in your life. Go old school with magazines, scissors and glue or try a Pinterest board.
9 – SURROUND YOURSELF WITH YOUR SOUL SISTERS
Attracting abundance is made easier when you surround yourself with people who are an energetic match for what you want to attract. Try to spend the majority of your time with your soul sisters (or bros!) who share similar aspirations, practice gratitude and are also seeking to grow, expand and move on up.
10 – BE GRATEFUL FOR THE MONEY AND CLIENTS YOU DO HAVE
Gratitude is truly magnetic. When you are grateful for what you do have, you’ll start to attract more of what you want. This is because gratitude heightens your energy and creates an energetic match for more abundance. Spend each morning writing down 3 things that you’re grateful for, from the money you do have, your lovely clients, to the freedom of being your own boss.
11 – SWITCH UP YOUR DAILY ROUTINE TO CIRCULATE NEW ENERGY
I recently watched a talk by Matt Kahn about energy upgrades. In it he explains that to attract more abundance and manifest what we want, we have to circulate new energy. This means changing up our regular routines to do something different – almost like breaking our daily habits. By doing this we’re creating new space for energy to flow. I see it as a way of “decluttering” our routine to attract new abundance.
You can try this in a very simple way. Instead of getting up each morning and doing the same old thing, try something entirely different for a week and see how you feel. The simple process of switching things up creates a new flow of energy and it heightens our awareness too, which in turn acts as a magnet for abundance.
12 – TRACK YOUR MONEY EACH DAY FOR A WEEK
Tracking your money may seem daunting if you don’t do it regularly, but it is hands down such an amazing tool to change your money story and create the business and life you truly seek. Start small by simply tracking what comes in to your business and what go outs each day for a week. You don’t need anything fancy to get started. A spreadsheet or piece of paper with two columns will work. The key is to track every single dollar and start the process of getting clear and in control with your money.
13 – KEEP CITRINE IN YOUR WALLET AND WORKSPACE
Citrine is a gorgeous crystal that is known for its ability to attract money and abundance. It’s commonly called The Merchant’s Stone for this reason. Keep some citrine in your wallet or workspace.
14 – LEARN TO LOVE YOUR BILLS
If you tend to get a new bill and think ‘ugh I HATE bills!’, then this is for you. It may feel awkward at first but learning to love your bills and practicing gratitude for them is a powerful way to welcome more money into your business. Start to see your bills as a platform to support you and your life by providing space, electricity, tools and resources so you can do what you need to do. Instead of saying ‘I hate you bill!’ start saying ‘Thank you and I know that there’s plenty more where that came from.’
15 – TREAT YO’ SELF
Do you catch yourself waiting to buy something nice, whether it’s fresh flowers or that new necklace simply because you’re not making what you want to be making just yet? If so, it’s time to treat yo’self lady love! Buying yourself something that you treasure or will make you feel like a boss is a powerful way to raise your energy and start acting, feeling and thinking as if you already have what you want.
16 – KEEP TRACK OF HOW YOU SPEAK ABOUT MONEY FOR A WEEK
Your words are influential. Try an experiment for a week (or even a day!) and catch how you say and think about money and your ability to create your dream business and life. Watch out for common phrases like:
I never have enough to…
How will I afford to pay for..
I suck at..
That always happens to me..
Once you catch yourself speaking or thinking negatively about money or your ability to do something, switch up your language into “I am…” and “I can..”.
17 – USE DAILY HABITS TO PRACTICE VISUALISATION AND AFFIRMATIONS
The next time you brush your teeth or make that morning cup of coffee, use it as an anchor or reminder to visualise your goals. Doing this attaches a new habit to an old habit so you can make sure you’ll do it daily. Mix visualising with affirmations for more effect.
18 – GET TAPPING WITH EFT
EFT (emotional freedom technique) is a wonderful way to release old money blocks and limiting beliefs to welcome new abundance and more confidence to flow to you. Tapping essentially clears negative emotion and releases it from your subconscious. There’s plenty of Youtube videos that walk you through this (my fave is Brad Yates.)
19 – VISIT A KINESIOLOGIST
Kinesiology has been a game changer for me in my business and life, especially when I’m in the process of up-levelling my business. Whenever new blocks seem to come up (around raising prices or launching a new product) I use it as the perfect time to have kinesiology and release old energy from my body.
20 – MEET THE UNIVERSE HALFWAY
Manifesting and attracting abundance is sparked into action when we do just that – take action! If you want to achieve a goal, you have to take inspired action to make it happen and meet the universe halfway. It’s no good just sitting and waiting and hoping for it to come to you. What is the very smallest first step you can take today to make your goal come to life?
I hope these 20 creative ideas have given you some new inspiration to attract abundance into your business and life. Try mixing a few that you love and make them a regular daily practice.
