Earlier this month I suggested there is a better way to be rich than what we typically hear from financial experts or best selling money books.
I promised a follow up post series on that subject that has since turned into a full fledged course at Good Vibe University. (It begins July 10th.)
Over the next week at this blog I will publish the foundation of what I believe is really required in order to be rich. For those of you who want a deeper dive in this material, join me at GVU next month for a six part course where we will not just study these principles, but will put them into real time practice together.
Let’s begin with getting clear on a couple of key principles before we start manifesting fabulous financial prosperity. Busting muggle myths about money is a good starting point for engaging the magic that makes the difference …
Here’s what I think is essential to know when it comes to successfully creating wealth and abundance:
Myth #1: Money is what makes you rich.
Truth: Money is what shows up once you decide you are rich.
Most people think the money comes first and that’s what makes one rich. But the way our system works is that the money comes in response to feeling rich. It’s what keeps most people from having the money they want – they don’t know how to feel what isn’t so in their reality yet.
It’s a catch 22. But there is a workaround – and that is your all-powerful imagination. That’s how you break out of a current reality to create a new one.
Myth #2: Making money requires certain specific action.
Truth: Making money requires a specific vibration.
The essential ingredient to wealth isn’t what you do, it’s what you vibrate. Actions are a result (not the cause) of abundance. What I mean is that actions are incidental, not primary, to creating abundance.
Being rich isn’t about figuring out how to make it happen through the right actions. It’s about training your energetic instruction into one of wealth and prosperity rather than striving and lack.
Myth #3: Money (and the desire for it) isn’t spiritual
Truth: Everything that exists is spiritual.
Everything that exists comes from Spirit. Including money. So get over it if that one’s been tripping you up. There’s nothing wrong with having or wanting money. Period.
Myth #4: Making money is hard.
Truth: Keeping money out of your life is more challenging and requires more focus than letting it in.
It takes way more energy to block the natural abundance that is yours rather than to conjure it into reality. Abundance is our default state, so when we stop doing the things that block it, money flows in naturally, joyfully and easily.
Myth #5: You’re not good at manifesting money.
Truth: You are excellent at it already!
However you are manifesting money to be – whether it’s plenty or hardly any – you are a master manifestor money already. You’re either manifesting it here or not here, and either way it shows you’ve got money manifesting skills.
So you don’t have to learn any new skills – it’s just a matter of putting your current skills to better use.
This is so much easier than you ever thought it to be.
You ready to have some fun with money? It’s ready for you, too.
Stay tuned next week for the second post in this series where we learn the ways to really be rich.
And if you’d like to tune in for the full course at GVU, you can join now and get started on your prep work before the course officially begins on July 10th.
Once Walter White started making serious money in season 3 of Breaking Bad, his boss and would-be mentor Gustavo Fring told him:
“… this life of ours, it can overwhelm. You are a wealthy man now, and one must learn to be rich. To be poor, anyone can manage.”
This was good advice.
The kind of advice we don’t get very often.
Much of the teachings about creating personal financial wealth are focused on how to acquire and manage money.
Traditional financial gurus advise how to make it, save it and invest it, approaching wealth as if it were a matter of living below our means and socking the rest away in smart investments.
As a former certified financial planner I get the wisdom those teachings are built on.
But anyone who has followed that muggle advice knows there is more to it than that.
It’s not enough to know how to get the money. In fact, that’s not even the important part.
The important part of creating financial wealth is that we learn how to be with money. How to get comfortable having money. To learn the vibration of being rich.
And that’s a thing.
It takes practice to be rich.
(Unless you already know that vibration – which you might, if you picked it up from parents or other influences in your world.)
But if you don’t know that energetic frequency, it’s essential to learn it in order to allow the money to manifest in your world.
Because law of attraction.
We have a tendency to keep creating whatever we’re used to. Whether that’s paycheck to paycheck living, or making the same six figures we can’t seem to break out of.
It’s a thing to learn the vibration of financial wealth. (The same way it is to learn any unfamiliar vibration.)
If all we know is financial struggle or striving, then it doesn’t matter how much advice we follow about making or managing money, because we only experience whatever we vibrate. And learning how to save or manage or even make more money doesn’t automatically mean we learn the vibration of wealth and prosperity.
That’s why I wish there were more books that taught us how to be rich, rather than how to make money.
Ramit Sethi (whose work I highly respect) promises “I will teach you to be rich.”
I wish that’s what he taught. He teaches how to make and manage money.
Making more money is not the same as being rich.
In fact, was it T. Harv Eker or Jim Rohn, someone like that once said that if a man wins the lottery, the first thing he better do is learn to be rich.
A lot of people would assume someone who won the lottery is already rich.
But he won’t stay that way long if he doesn’t know how to be with money.
That’s why so many lottery winners and pro athletes burn through their cash in short order … they never learned how to be rich.
Conscious creators know that whatever we desire starts with learning the vibration of that desire first.
We learn the vibration of what we want, and then the way there is revealed.
It’s no use learning how to get rich if you don’t also know how to be rich.
The next time I see a list of 8 books that teach you to be rich, I hope it is that: a tutorial on how to learn the mindset of wealth. How to own the vibration of financial prosperity.
In the meantime, I’ll do my part here with a new series on how to really be rich.
We’ll start where it matters – vibrationally.
Here are the first two posts of the series:
Stay tuned for the rest of the tutorial that truly makes the difference, or join GVU now for the 6 part course that launches July 10th.
If you’re in the mood to manifest some money for nothing, this post is for you …
Money for nothing can be a tricky thing.
Many of us have been trained that we have to work for the reward, and so we don’t actually expect financial abundance can come without effort.
But conscious creators know that we can have whatever we are willing to learn the vibration of. We don’t have to figure out how or make it happen – all we have to do is offer the vibrational instruction of whatever we want. And then it must become so.
Which means that manifesting free money is simply a matter of knowing its vibrational frequency.
And you know what free money feels like, right? If not, this is a fun one to learn!
Most folks are already fans of making money, but having money come out of the blue is super cool, too!
So, how do we activate the vibration of free money?
The good news is there’s more than one way to do it. You could:
Sometimes it’s as simple as intending to receive free money, and letting Universe respond to that instruction.
But if that hasn’t worked for you, it may be because you’ve been trained that money is difficult to manifest, and that there must be effort involved in order to get it.
In that case, you have three options:
Your choice! 🙂
You know what, though? It’s not really “money for nothing” – it’s “money for alignment.” That’s where money “out of the blue” comes from. It comes from our vibrational instruction.
So technically, it’s not really for nothing. It’s from our best magic!
It’s worth remembering that manifesting free money is easiest when we don’t need it. Doing it for kicks makes us a better match for receiving it than when it feels like a big deal.
That can be frustrating to hear when you’re in dire financial straits, but the truth is that finding a way to lighten up about it makes it much easier for money to flow.
How to relax about money when you’re feeling the pressure? Gotcha covered here and here.
You might also enjoy a money manifesting exercise like this one (that netted me $10k in 10 days) or this money spell or this money meditation or this time-tested money chant or this modern money mantra.
Bottom line is that manifesting money for nothing is a simple matter of feeling it into being. Practice feeling what it’s like to receive money out of the blue, and then let it go. Universe will put it together for you when you give the instruction and then get out of the way.
We’d love to hear your “free money” stories when you put the magic to work …
Many manifestors want to use their creative power to eliminate debt and feel more financial freedom.
While I’ll be the first to say money isn’t responsible for making us feel free (how we feel is our job, not money’s), I understand the desire for a positive cash flow.
So here are three law of attraction-friendly tips to shift your money vibration (and thus your money situation):
1. Make Peace With the Debt
You know what people have in common who want to get rid of their debt? An aversion to debt.
Maybe we learned this financial dis-ease from our thrifty parents, or a conservative spouse. Or maybe it’s just our latest excuse to feel bad about ourselves if we have that kind of a habit rolling.
But however we got this resistance to debt, that’s gotta shift.
Because conscious creators know what it means to push against what we don’t want. (We just get more of it.)
Plenty of people have debt and feel peaceful or even appreciate it. (Did you know that was an option?)
On the other hand, folks who want to get rid of their debt often have some sort of negative charge about it.
So making peace with the debt you have is a powerful step in releasing it, believe it or not.
Some people are nervous that if they stop hating their debt they’ll just incur more. But it’s the opposite. What we resist persists.
Get okay with the money that you owe.
It’s a simple matter of finding better feeling thoughts about it. If you’d like help, give this vibration activation script a try.
2. Edit Your Identity
No, this doesn’t suggest you change your name to avoid creditors.
This tip is all about upgrading the way you think of yourself; i.e. how you know yourself to be.
Whatever we know, we create.
So if you know that you have a ton of student loan debt, or that your credit cards are maxed, so shall it be.
Our reality can’t be different than how we know it to be.
So you want to start practicing a different knowing about yourself and your money.
That allows your debt to move.
Instead of knowing yourself to be someone who was financially devastated in his divorce, practice knowing yourself as someone who is rebuilding after a life challenge.
Instead of thinking of yourself as someone who isn’t good with money and can’t seem to get ahead, try thinking of yourself as someone who is willing to make the changes that matter.
Instead of identifying with previous family members that never had a dime to their name, start choosing something new for your lineage. (Your future generations will thank you for it!)

3. Take Feel-Better Actions
Any action that makes you feel better about your money is a step in the right direction.
We’re looking specifically for anything you can do that makes you feel more empowered, more capable, and more optimistic.
You can look to muggle money experts for traditional suggestions like cutting up cards, consolidating debt, sticking to budgets, etc. But know that the magic isn’t in the action itself – it’s in how you FEEL.
So anything that makes you feel like a more savvy financial manager is worthy of engaging.
That includes skipping payments, filing bankruptcy and any other actions that you’ve been conditioned to feel guilt or shame about.
Remember what Abe tells us: it doesn’t matter what you do; it only matters how you feel. That means any action you take only helps if you feel better when taking it.
For some people, writing down a list of all the balances owed to various creditors is an empowering action that makes them feel responsible and clear. For others, that could be overwhelming and intimidating.
Honor your inner guidance about what feels best, and follow through on those inspired actions.
I shared this tip last because once you 1) make peace with your debt and 2) start thinking of yourself as someone who is getting a good handle on their money situation, the Universe will 3) deliver options and resources to improve your finances. It’s important to cooperate with Universe by engaging the actions that further stimulate your good money vibes.
I’ve seen “miracles” happen with our financial balances once we shift our mindset about money.
Which is why I suggest you be open to big answers and fun solutions once you do the vibration management work on your debt.
And remember that the LOA way to manifest debt freedom is to be willing to feel now you would feel then.
We’re not using our manifesting skills to create an outcome that makes us feel better. We’re finding ways to feel better now, and that requires our finances to raise their game, too.
If you’ve got questions or other tips, please post so we can help you manifest the money reality you prefer.
PS – listen at the podcast for 3 tips to eliminate debt the LOA way.
From a book on money magic (Jason Miller’s Financial Sorcery), in a chapter titled “Perspective,” the author writes:
“The truth is that on a global scale, almost everyone reading this book is rich.”
The author went on to argue that if you make more than $25k a year, you are in the global top 10% of money earners. And that even the poorest people in America or Western Europe have access to amenities that the poor in most of the world do not.
(We discussed this on GVU’s June book club; members can find the recording here.)
I agree completely that we are rich, but perhaps for different reasons than what our income levels indicate.
In fact, if you don’t already see how you, too, are rich (and especially if you aspire to more), it would behoove you to start seeing the wealth you already lay claim to in life.
Law of attraction dictates that if we don’t feel rich first, no amount of money poured on us is likely to change that. At least not long term.
That’s why it’s worth acknowledging the abundance already present in our lives.
No matter what your circumstances are, I believe we each have evidence of immense wealth.
We don’t need imagination or vision boards to “see” it; we don’t need a certain bank account balance to feel it.
It’s already here.
And if you can’t see it easily, I suspect it’s not because it doesn’t exist for you. But rather because you’ve trained yourself not to see it.
We get whatever we look for, so if you’ve got a habit of seeing lack instead of abundance, that’s a reflection of your focus, not your circumstances.
Because (as Abraham said recently) every moment contains all things. We each choose what we activate and thus carry forward to the next moment based on how we focus.
So if you’re not already good at seeing your treasures, financial and otherwise, I suggest you practice.
Begin a personal treasure hunt by looking for evidence of your financial wealth, and you will discover it.
Ask yourself, “What about my life would give someone the impression that I’m loaded?” and you’ll begin to see your life in a newly abundant light.
You will also find that the better you get at seeing how you’re rich, the more you become so.
Funny how that LOA stuff works. 🙂
It’s a common question when creators are in process of manifesting wealth …
How to manage current finances (and make aligned spending decisions) while activating the vibration of prosperity?
Some manifestors find it contradictory to look at price tags and keep to a budget while affirming financial abundance.
On the other hand, it can also be unnerving to spend money like we’ve already got it before it’s actually here.
(Sometimes that just activates more worry.)
What’s a conscious creator to do?
Well, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer that applies to all in every situation.
I wouldn’t say, “Spend it like you got it” or “Wait till the bank agrees before you act like a rich person.”
That’s because the answer isn’t about the best action – it’s about the better feeling. And that could be different for each of us.
Sometimes the aligned thing to do is take the leap of faith and spend the money. Other times it’s to play it conservative and find a way to be fiscally responsible without negating the abundance vibe.
Here’s how to know the right answer for you:
What feels best?
Your inner guidance knows the best way to get where you want to be financially, and it will steer you there if you listen.
Remember, your inner guidance speaks to you through your emotions. So whichever action feels most inspired and joyful – that’s your higher self pointing the way.
If it feels nerve racking and ominous, that’s a sign to choose something else.
You’re looking for whichever option offers the most relief.
Some people have developed such a strong habit of worry around money that they don’t feel good saving, handling or spending it.
That’s a sign your gremlins have taken over and crowded out guidance from within.
A little practice will put you back in touch with that inner wisdom.
You can facilitate that process by making sure you’re regularly tapping the vibration of abundance, wealth, prosperity (or whatever you’d like to manifest). Tuning to that frequency makes it easier to hear (and trust) your divinely inspired messages.
For creators who have a hard time feeling good about spending money when it seems in short supply, it’s good to remember that joy begets joy.
If you spend it with joy, it brings more joy back. (Which is why so many manifestors successfully intend that spending happy money brings more happy money back – multiplied even!)
If you spend it with guilt, or spend it with worry – it’d be better not to spend it at all. (Or to find a way to drop the guilt or worry.)
Because law of attraction can only match what we’re vibing.
So it doesn’t matter what we do; it only matters how we feel.
Find the action that feels best – to you – whatever that is, then take that action and stick with the good feeling.
Don’t second guess or regret your choice – let it continue to be the right thing.
The latest podcast covers this subject, as inspired by my gremlin doubts whether I made the right decisions to euthanize my dog and adopt out my foster cat.
This process applies to whatever we’re up to – whether spending money, breaking up, making health care decisions, etc.
Bottom line: it isn’t so much about figuring out the right action, as it is about finding our way to the most aligned feeling. Focusing on the feeling serves us much better than analyzing actions.
It’s a matter of doing/choosing whatever is easiest to feel good about. And then to keep feeling good about it.
In Happy Calories Don’t Count, my friend Carmela Ramaglia shares about how stress and dieting caused her to put on so much weight that she eventually gave up thinking she could ever have the body she wanted.
She consoled herself with pizza and ice cream, her two favorite foods that had been off the menu for quite some time.
No surprise to conscious creators, she lost weight. On pizza and ice cream.
Encouraged by her weight loss success, thinking that maybe she could get the body she wanted after all, she went back to “healthy” eating.
And promptly gained weight back.
After enough cycles of this routine she realized, “Happy calories don’t count.”
It’s why a date (who is attempting to drop weight by eating oatmeal for breakfast and salads with sensible dressing for lunch) marvels at my food choices.
“How can you eat like this and look like that?!”
It’s a joy thing, I tell him.
“Our bodies thrive with joy,” I explain.
He looks skeptical.
“Well, you’re looking at the living proof.” Mic drop.
Okay, I didn’t say that last part.
But that’s how it works.
I have high joy for significant amounts of chocolate desserts. And pancakes. And waffles. And fries.
My new greatest find, Denali Extreme Maximum Fudge Moose Tracks makes my heart beat a little faster just thinking of it.
And it works the same with money.
Our bank accounts thrive with joy.
The same way our relationships thrive with joy. And our work thrives with joy. And our health thrives with joy.
Everything thrives with joy.
That’s what I reminded myself yesterday, at the Salt Lake Gem Faire, while contemplating amazing specimens of crystals from Luis at Krystal Light Imports.
Yes, I already have a lot of crystals. Beautiful, fabulous, can’t-take-your-eyes-off-them crystals. (Several of which I bought from Luis!)
And yes, I have taxes to pay. And a fence to install. And yes, it would be smart to build up the savings after last year’s move.
But my money doesn’t thrive properly if it’s not having fun.
I know that if I want more money, then I have to be willing to have more fun with it.
And this is my money’s idea of a good time.
We like crystals, and beach front property auctions, and good seats at the Eric Church concert.
We like hard copy books that I don’t even keep since my library is full.
We like seats at the best parties in conscious creator town, and we love to buy plants. Omgosh, the plants. And colored pens.
We’ll still do all the responsible things, but I know those things get covered best when my money is having a proper good time.
If I want more money, I have to have more fun with it.
Because joy expands all the good stuff.
It can’t just be all bills and savings and smart investments. There has to be some serious fun in there to help things get even better.
(Janice Whiting of LiftedSpiritz told GVU members recently that “saving stops the flow.”)
Plus, we know that money out doesn’t have to mean money gone.
Which is opposite of what most non-LOA savvy people think.
Just like with calories, and relationships, and work projects – they often think things work best when they work hard and maybe even suffer just a little bit.
Those who understand the role energy plays in our reality know it’s the exact opposite.
Joy is an essential part of financial success.
So however my money can have fun, that’s good for my bank account. As long as I feel good about it, too.
The trick can be how to have a good time with money when it feels limited. Because if you believe there isn’t enough, it’s hard to let loose and have a good time.
But the amount of fun you have with money has nothing to do with how much of it you have. It’s a mindset thing.
(Trust me, there are people who would think my budget doesn’t allow for the kind of fun they like to have with money, so it’s all relative.)
You can have fun with your money no matter how much or little you think you have.
All it requires is a willingness to shift your mindset.
Not in an irresponsible way. Because it doesn’t truly feel fun to do something that you’re nervous about, or that you believe will have dire consequences.
True joy doesn’t include that.
What it comes down to, as those who understand the law of attraction easily get: having fun with money in your future means having fun with your money now.
We don’t wait for it to show up before we start feeling the feelings now.
And it doesn’t have to require big spending to do that. In fact, it could be happening strictly in your imagination. (That’s a proper vibe activation right there, even when it’s “only” happening in our mind.)
But I think there are lots of ways we could let our money have more fun right here and now. Things like:
Maybe your money likes to walk on the wild side and go for a swim in the laundry.
Maybe it likes to be saved in a gold piggy bank.
Maybe it likes you to think of it as a joy partner, instead of a heavy life responsibility.
My point is that if your money manifesting practice doesn’t already include making sure your money gets its proper share of fun, maybe give that some attention.
And if you need more help on how to pull that off, GVU members get complimentary sessions with Ming the Money Alchemist. Lots of folks reporting significant improvements with their money after getting Ming’s money magic on their side. (Joining GVU is just $1 for a three week trial. I literally couldn’t make it easier.)
You know what else my money likes to do for fun? Play with domain names. Can’t wait to see what we do with pimpmyvibe.com. 🙂
As we close the doors on 2016, it’s time to let you know about what I’m doing for fellow creators starting next week.
I’ve promised this course for a while, and everything’s come together to offer you The Money Aligner starting in January at Good Vibe University.
This is where we learn the vibration of delightful money once and for all.
Not where we reactivate yearning, doubt or disbelief. Not where we try to figure out what actions to make it happen. Not even where we study the principles of money manifesting.
This is where we actually do the regular work of lining up with what we want.
We don’t just talk about it, and you’re not left on your own to figure out how to implement it.
The Money Aligner at GVU is where we do it together.
Once and for all we’ll drop old instructions of financial lack, struggle and doubt and replace them with instructions of abundance, ease and enjoyment.
This is where we get used to having money. The way we want it. Whatever that is for you.
Because prosperity takes practice.
It’s for anyone who wants to improve their financial reality.
Maybe you already know the vibration of big money, but you’d like it to be easier and more fun.
Or maybe you have already nailed the frequency of enjoyable money, but you’d like it to be more consistent.
Or maybe money has always been your nemesis and you’re ready for that to change.
Whatever you’d like money to be for you, this is where we do the vibrational work to have it the way we like it.
Because once we know that vibration, Universe is required to make it so.
All we have to do is sit back and let it in.
It’s a delicious thing to experience, but it is easier said than done.
That’s why we’re doing it together.
Not because money is what matters most in life – but because until we get this aspect of life handled, it’s hard to turn attention to what we care about more. When we’re working a job solely for the paycheck, our relationships don’t thrive the way they could. Or when we’re worried about keeping a roof overhead, spiritual pursuits take a backseat.
Not that money isn’t spiritual. I believe it’s as spiritual as everything else in our world. And I believe it’s great practice for whatever else we want to conjure into our reality.
Because the principles and practices we engage here are the same ones for whatever else you want to create.
So if you’re ready to join fellow creators in creating a new financial reality for yourself, you’re invited to join us at GVU for The Money Aligner.
We start Wednesday, January 4th and will continue through the year to create powerful momentum in a new money vibration.
Here’s why I’m investing my time, love and attention into this project:
I also believe you won’t find a better guide for this purpose than me. Manifesting money and helping others do the same is my wheelhouse. This is where I shine.
And my belief in my ability to lead this party will only add to your success. Because belief is the cornerstone of a good vibration, and I’ve got enough for all of us.
Conscious creators know what it takes to manifest what we want – learning the frequency of that desire.
When it comes to creating financial prosperity, that means speaking the vibrational language of having money. Not wanting money. Not worrying about money. Not being frustrated with money. But the vibration of having money. Of enjoying money. Of feeling comfortable with money.
The Money Aligner course at GVU is where we do exactly that.
You can join as a monthly member for $27 a month, or get a discount (along with a private coach session with me) when you enroll for the year at $170.
I believe that your money manifestations will be icing on the cake of the other delicious things you do with your creative powers during our time together.
Check out GVU enrollment details here, or just fast forward to the signup page.
You’ll get instant access to previous courses and calls at GVU, along with private forums and other member perks.
(Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or post here in the comments.)
Regardless of how you choose to engage your manifesting powers in 2017, I hope you’ll give yourself the gift of exactly that – exercising your divine powers to create whatever you desire.
There has never been a better time to let yourself have what you truly want.
Happy new year and happy manifesting, fellow creators!
