Talking openly about money is something many people don’t feel comfortable with. I’ll admit it, I feel vulnerable publicly announcing how much money I made last year, too.
But it’s this reluctance to be open about money that causes us to struggle with our finances. If we remain in the dark about any subject, we can’t improve it. Consciousness is the key to our growth.
Therefore, if you want to improve your financial reality you have to bring more awareness to your relationship with money. That’s what this article will teach you to do.
Below are a few of the steps I personally took to increase my awareness with money last year, gracefully ushering me over the 6-figure mark in income. By making these six, simple shifts in your life, I guarantee you’ll greatly improve your relationship with money and abundance, too.
1) I strengthened my inner connection to Abundance.
Guiding people how to create a connection to “wealth within” is the most important practice I teach in The Abundance Course. Here’s why it’s so important and how it works:
We create more of what we are.
In other words, we create more of the energy we’re holding within.
Because of this, if you want to create more abundance in your life, you must start by FEELING abundance within. Connecting to the natural abundance of your Being. And this is actually easy to do.
Regardless of your current financial situation, you have access to the experience of abundance within – the experience of wealth within. This energy of abundance is the essence of who you are. It is infinite. It is overflowing. It is always available. And it never runs out.
When you tap this energy within you, YOU FEEL ABUNDANT. And therefore, you attract more abundance to you. This was the foundational process that called (and continues to call) overflowing abundance into my life.
2) I confronted my fears about money.
We all have limiting beliefs and fears about money. These are the beliefs that keep us stuck in a financial reality that isn’t working for us. In order to create more abundance in your life, you have to confront these fears.
To improve my own finances, I had to ask myself: What beliefs about money are making me feel stuck?
By asking this simple question, I was able to face my dysfunctional patterns with money (patterns such as: unconscious spending, under-saving, avoidance of money, all which I talk about in detail in my course).
After these patterns where brought to light I could take conscious steps to change them. This increased my confidence with money, automatically calling more of it to me.
3) I took empowering steps.
You can’t become wealthy if you feel like money is more powerful than you. In order to be in a confident position with your finances, you have to change your actions with money.
For me, this included creating a savings account (and actually putting money in it), increasing my rates to reflect the worth of my services, being aware of my spending and other actions that helped me feel more empowered with money.
Making small changes that put me in charge of my finances increased my confidence, which in turn, strengthened my inner connection to Abundance even more.
4) I recognized my true Source of wealth.
As a spiritual person, I know that money is not my source of wealth. My connection to Source is my true source of wealth.
What does that mean?
It’s knowing that when I’m connected to the energy of Love and Abundance with, I am complete. The seeking for anything melts away when I’m centered within.
Remember what I said above: our external realities always reflect our internal realities. When I practiced staying connected to my true source of wealth within, more wealth (in the form of money) naturally and easily came to me.
5) I took inspired action.
As I simmered in a wealthy state-of-being, ideas that became my next steps in creating more income naturally started to flowing in.
Out of nowhere an idea would pop in my head. If I felt excited about this new idea I would immediately take action.
This is another practice I teach in my course because taking inspired action is a place people can get a little confused. But really, it’s pretty simple. It goes like this:
Inspired action feels like action your soul wants to take.
It’s the feeling of inspiration (of “YES!”) that propels you in particular direction in your life. If you’re practicing “wealth within,” that direction will automatically be towards more wealth.
For myself, by taking actions that felt completely aligned to my soul (and wealth-vibe), I was guided to increase my abundance in ways I never imagined were there.
6) I believed.
A very important step in creating financial abundance is believing both in yourself and the power and flow of Life itself.
Of the Infinite.
Of the Absolute.
Of what we all are… which is Love, Abundance, and Truth.
It’s been many years now that I’ve been practicing aligning to Love within to create my reality from the inside-out. The proof always shows up. We create more of what we are – we attract what we are. And when we know the TRUTH about what we are (which is Love in all forms), then that is what we create in life.

Magic happens when you believe in yourself and the flow of creativity that’s available to us all.
Your internal reality is the foundation for everything you create in the world, including wealth and abundance.
Get to know your experience with money, connect to Abundance within, trust the Universe, and you will absolutely take your financial reality to the next level this year.
