The Secret to Being a Millionaire

“How do I get more money?” This is one of the top questions I get as a life coach these days. I’ll tell you an important first step to becoming a millionaire in this article.

I will show you how to begin the process of opening yourself up to the flow of money.

We are living in unprecedented times. Levels of fear and uncertainty are at all-time highs, and the general consensus is that money is at unprecedented lows.

I’m going to be pretty direct here and tell you that you don’t get more money by thinking about money.

You get more money by changing the way you feel about money. And you must change the way you feel about money in order for it to show up.

When we come from a place of fear, lacking, wanting, and doubting, we create blocks to money. We create resistance. We distance ourselves even further from that which we try to manifest. The same cycle ensues…more lacking, and wanting, and needing. The key is to break the cycle, and attract differently.

At this point, you may be thinking, “Wait, how do I translate these metaphysical concepts into things I can do on a daily basis to move towards financial abundance?”

How do I break out of my current situation and embody the energy of abundance?

This article will show you how.

Open Yourself Up to The Flow of Money

In my book SOAR, I discuss the concept of energy and vibration. Everything in our universe is energy, and money is no exception.

Everything that happens in our physical world first happens on an energetic level. Whether we realize it or not, the outer world is a reflection of what is going on internally.

Money, just like energy, is in a constant state of circulation. It’s always flowing, exchanging hands, moving around according to energy and vibration.

Getting into the energy of abundance is a process of training the mind.

It’s a moment to moment practice. It’s a process of training your mind to embody high-vibrational emotions.

You simply can’t get there from a place of fear, doubt, or worry.

You get there by choosing to feel joyful. Appreciative. Abundant. Free. Energized. Purpose-driven. You get there by loving others. By extending compassion and grace, to yourself and others.

You get there by making peace with where you are and loving your life.

Acknowledge How You Currently View Money

Our subconscious minds represent the vast majority of our thinking. That’s 90% of our thoughts! Our beliefs are embedded in our subconscious minds, and they drive our decision-making more than we may realize.

In order to manifest money in your external world, you need to first identify your internal beliefs about money, and change them so that you embody beliefs that attract money.

Think back to when you were a child. What were your experiences and your narrative around money? What feelings were associated with money? Fear? Lack? Apprehension?

Here are some examples of negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs about money:

  • Money is hard to come by
  • I’m jealous of people who have a lot of money
  • I’ve never had enough money
  • My family has never been wealthy, so I won’t be either
  • There aren’t enough hours in the day for me to earn enough money
  • Earning money takes a ridiculous amount of hard work and sacrifice
  • Everyone else has money but me
  • I need to save every penny I earn
  • I’m not acting responsibly when I spend
  • I feel guilty for spending money on myself
  • The rich just keep getting richer

These beliefs are imprinted on us during our formative years and we carry them with us into adulthood, until we examine our beliefs and do the inner work to change them.

What story are you telling yourself?

Adopt New Beliefs About Money

The words we use and the feeling we embody have a huge impact on how our life unfolds. We must do the deep soul work on the inside before our external world can change, and this applies to any area of life.

Here’s what positive, money-affirming beliefs look and feel like:

  • There is plenty of money to go around
  • I use money to support my family and show them love
  • I am worthy, valuable and deserving
  • The universe wants me to live in a state of abundance
  • I add value to the world and the universe recognizes my efforts
  • I can show others I appreciate them by using money to buy gifts
  • Money flows to me with ease
  • I am a vibrational match for money
  • Making money is fun
  • There are no limitations on what I can earn
  • I appreciate everything I have
  • I am happy for other people when they get ahead financially
  • I’m proud of myself for being able to earn money
  • I’m good at managing my money

Embody the Vibration of Abundance

In order to change the relationship you have with money, you need to embody a different energy. A different vibration.

You need to live in a state of abundance.

It isn’t about having an overflowing bank account. It isn’t about spending money freely.

Abundance is about appreciating what you have in front of you, right now.

Appreciate the little things, the beauty around you, the efforts that went into creating the objects that are in your living space, and the life experiences you’ve had that helped shape who you are. Appreciate life.

It is not until we live in this state of appreciation that we open ourselves up to abundance and the flow of all aspects of life.

Make Your Intent Clear

Get really clear on your deep-seated why…the compelling reason why you want more money, and identify feelings around that. For example, “I want to earn more money, so I can provide more experiences for my family.” :I’m going to be very proud when I can take my family on vacation, and provide a better quality of life.” “I enjoy taking care of people I care about.” “I’m going to use my money to show acts of kindness and service and love.”

The universe recognizes your energy behind your desires. It knows if the origin is superficial or ego-based, or if it has a deeper, soul-based agenda. Associate your feelings and desires around money with soul-based initiatives. Examples of these are: kindness, love, benevolence, humanitarianism, gratitude, fun, and life-enriching experiences.

Align With Your Passions

It’s easy to get sidetracked by the trendiest money-maker, what everyone else is doing, and chasing shiny objects.

The people in this world who seem to be making money with ease aren’t doing it by chasing other peoples’ dreams. They aren’t doing it by chasing the cash. They’re doing it by getting really clear on their mission and vision, and pursuing it with reckless abandon. Even further, they’re dazzling the naysayers, transmuting doubt in fuel, and turning fear into personal power.

They’re making money by aligning themselves with what they are passionate about.

Any endeavor that isn’t infused with passion has an expiration date, as the initial burst of excitement and energy just isn’t enough to sustain it for the long haul.

You need to go deep within and align with what truly sets your soul on fire.

Aligning yourself with the energy of money is a rich topic, (pun intended) and like anything else in life, takes a sustained effort.
