5 Easy Ways to Increase Your Wealth-Vibe

The more you increase your wealth-vibe, the more money will naturally flow into your life.
The way I like to think about this is: there’s an energetic channel flowing between you and money. This is your wealth-vibe.

The more that wealth-vibe is clear, aligned, joyful (the more it’s in a good-state), the more abundance flows to you.

Because of this, an important question to ask is: How do I increase my wealth-vibe? 

Well… it’s actually easy to do!

In this article, I give you 5 tips on how to significantly increase your wealth-vibe, naturally attracting more money and abundance to you.

1) Stop trying to attract money. 

Sounds strange, right? Here’s the thing: Most people try to manifest money because they feel like they’re lacking money.

I want it because I don’t have it. 

But the trick to manifesting is actually just the opposite: You can only manifest what you already have. You attract more of what you are. 

If you focus on needing or wanting money, it’s very likely you’re holding your vibration in lack on the subject of money. The easiest way to fix this is to stop trying to manifest money!

Instead of focusing on attracting money, downshift into simply feeling abundant. This adjustment will increase your wealth-vibe, making you a match for more money to flow into your experience.

2) Save your loose change. 

Ok – I know it may sound silly but creating an adult piggy-bank can do wonders for your wealth-vibe. How come? Because when you experience your money growing, you attract more of the same: money growing!

By putting your extra change into a jar everyday, that money will accumulate. By feeling excited about the money accumulating, you’re creating a “my money’s growing” vibration within you. And you know what that means…

The trick to this exercise is you have to get into it. If you save money in a jar but you don’t think twice about it, it’s not affecting your vibration. It’s the excitement you feel as a result of saving money that really boosts your wealth-vibe.

3) Appreciate 10 things everyday.

Appreciation is the cornerstone of raising your wealth-vibe because it’s synonymous with feeling like you have what you desire.

Think about the essence of appreciation for a second. What does it feel like? Some words that may come to mind are full, happy, complete, plenty, enough. 

Appreciation is the state of loving what you have, and because you attract what you identify with, this automatically brings more wealth and abundance into your life.

Consciously choose at least 10 things to appreciate everyday, but do this with heart. When I’m walking down the street, I personally like to appreciate the trees, the spring flowers, the sunshine, and the blue sky. You can appreciate absolutely anything, and it will always increase your wealth-vibe, bringing more abundance to you.

4) Meditate on wealth for 10 minutes a day.

The reality is, we want to attract money because we believe it will result in a specific feeling state. But the good news is… you can start feeling that way today, before the money comes into your life!.

When you think about what it would feel like to be wealthy, what words come to mind? Some possibilities are: abundant, free, happy, expansive, generous, relaxed. 

These are all great ways to feel but guess what? They don’t require money! These vibrations or feelings are accessible inside of you all the time! When you meditate, you learn to align with these feeling-states.

Make a list of  5 – 10 words that describe what it would feel like to be wealthy. Then close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and feel into you heart. See if you can make contact with those feeling states, right here in the present moment. Stay with them for as long you can; in doing so, you are attracting more of these states (and abundance) to you.

5) Know that wealth is a state-of-heart.

“If we don’t know how to get happiness out of five dollars, we won’t know how to get it out of five hundred, or five-thousand, or five-hundred-thousand.” Eleanor H. Porter

Wealth is about so much more than money. If you can’t feel wealthy without money, you’re not going to feel wealthy with money. It’s just the truth.

This concept is very hard for us to grasp, but I can tell you that I’ve personally experienced it in both directions.

There have been times in my life where I didn’t have any money in my bank, but I truly felt infinitely abundant. 

And there have also been times recently when I’ve had a lot of money in my bank and I felt like was poor (you better believe I caught myself in the midst of this lack-mentality and boosted my wealth-vibe immediately!). 

Wealth is a state-of-heart. If you truly understand this, then there’s nothing stopping you from creating significant wealth in your life, inside and out.

    Hi Shelly,
    Thank you for sharing.

    Any tips on how to work with the ‘fear of not having enough money’ , when it comes up before you can even notice it happened. So I am actually asking a tip on how to work with this fear, which comes up unexpectedly before I can even think about it.

    Much Love

    • Shelly Bullard on April 14, 2015 at 1:44 pm

      You can only work with the fear once you notice it, which is why consciousness practices (such as meditation) are so important. My article next week will talk about exactly how to work through fears when they arise, so stay tuned for that (it’ll be in your inbox on Monday!). Thanks for your comment! xo

    Thank you Shelly! This is absolutely brilliant. I embrace what you just taught me. It will change my life and wealth-vibe forever. Blessings.

    • Shelly Bullard on April 14, 2015 at 1:45 pm

      I’m so glad it resonates for you Dionne! xoxox

  3. Shruti on April 14, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    what you say rings true completely. Only when times are hard they never seem to end and when one is surrounded by more negative, it is difficult for the heart to feel abundant. even meditation becomes difficult.

    • Shelly Bullard on April 14, 2015 at 5:40 pm

      Yes – true. It’s much harder to stick to our spiritual practices when times are difficult, but this is when we need it the most! Thanks for your comment. Xo

    Hi, Shelly! I really love this serie of articles about wealth! Thank you so much for writing and posting them! I am doing all of the exercises and feeling great about both money and myself. Today on the subway I gave away some money to a homeless women although I have a limited resources right now. I felt such a pull inside of me like I knew I had enough and I wanted to share as well.So Thank you so much again and can`t wait for your next e-mail! xoxox

    • Shelly Bullard on April 14, 2015 at 5:39 pm

      Aw, Svetlana, thank you for sharing with us! Sincere giving is a big part of the manifesting abundance process. I’m glad you followed your inner guidance!

    hi shelly — i love the ideas in this article. Thank you!
    A few weeks ago I was at the grocery store and decided to use the self-checkout machine. I had organic produce, and when the screen asked what type of produce I was buying, I decided to “save” money by dishonestly tapping the screen to indicate it was the less-costly regular produce. Once I got home, I shuddered with awareness at what I had done. I had sent a message to the Universe that I felt I lacked the money to pay for my food. Lack & fear had been with me, not feelings of abundance.

    It was an old, awful feeling I remember so well, along with guilt that I had been dishonest. I went back a week later to grocery shop and bought non-organic produce. On the check-out machine, I marked all of it as organic and paid the higher difference. It was me signaling the Universe that I can happily afford the food I buy and am grateful I could make it right.

    I believe everything we do is “heard” by the Universe. It is a beautiful thing to live in a feeling of abundance, but it does take some getting used to after years of being in fear and lack. Thanks for giving me more ways to develop the feeling of abundance and take it even farther:-)

    • Shelly Bullard on April 14, 2015 at 11:58 pm

      Thank you so much for sharing with such honesty – I really appreciate it. I know – the ego convinces us to do all sorts of things that don’t work in our favor! The ego’s like, “Save a little!” but we’re not saving peace of mind! 😉 Integrity goes a long way – not only because it aligns us to what’s right and good, but because it’s the only path that actually feels good to our souls. The more conscious we become, the less we can trick ourselves into doing things that aren’t in integrity. I love that you went back to the grocery store and made it right, in a way that felt good for you. A clear conscious is necessary for manifesting anything, and for a happy existence. And it sounds like you learned an important lesson – that’s how we grow and evolve. xoxo

    Thanks!!! I am feeling wealthy, especially when I meditate about the inexhaustible love that I have inside, then, I said my life is abundant!!

    i like what you wrote shelly and it sounds great. in fact i already do the loose change thing even before reading this but i find it hard not to think about lack of money despite my attempts not to and being presently unemployed does not help.

    • Shelly Bullard on April 16, 2015 at 5:34 pm

      Start by looking for small examples of abundance that are in your life. These examples are everywhere, but we’re usually too busy worrying to notice them. This practice will help a lot.

  8. Nelly on April 19, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    Hi Shelly
    I read with love, thank you sharing your insight..My problem was having money and using this to compansate what are lack in my life… Athough ı am working deeplly on this subject ı will tell you ı did not transform it fully. When ı read wealth is state of hearth… I need some more information about this… lack is still lack. how can I feel as I have right now, if I do not have like fullfilling supportive friendship and relationship… ı have few friends supportive but it id not abundant, what should I say to myself?

    • Shelly Bullard on April 21, 2015 at 1:42 am

      You need to find the light and fullness within you. This is what truly satiates us, in all ways. And it’s how we create fullness in our lives. Your outer world is simply a reflection of your inner world. Therefore, by tending deeply to your inner world, your outer world will heal.

  9. sherryl on April 26, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    Hi ShellyThank you for your time and effort you put in so we can all benefit and improve our lives.
    I won a small amount of money, I happily went and deposited money on my credit card fully paid off. Hooray!! I gave blessings for the wonderful feeling of freedom and tucked away another note in my purse to remind me to stop thinking so much about lack but to feel more of the same feeling about money so I can stayed tuned to feeling of wealth.
    The old me!!!! Was when I had less in my wallet I had to make more money so the fear came in Good vibe gone hello fear!!!.
    I started to be jealous of rich people.
    I notice same pattern in my love life, work, my body, friends,etc so what was the answer..
    Go back to the source, tune back into the abundant vibe and presto it works.
    Now through your help I have finally grasp it
    I am abundant, I just need to stay tuned in on the vibe. When I doubt I flick the switch back to the abundant vibe and it all changes instantly.
    Thank you.

    • Shelly Bullard on May 16, 2015 at 1:35 pm

      Amazing idea, Michele!! xoxox

  12. Me on September 7, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    I totally agree with putting change in a jar! I saw this once on Oprah. There was a couple that did this for about 18 years and when it was time for their child to go to college they used this “change” to pay for his/her college tuition.
    I heard another story of a teacher who picked up coins off his classroom’s floor and around the school. He made an announcement to one of his classes, that he was taking his family on a trip to Hawaii just by the change he had found that students were dropping on the floor over the years.

    I think it is also important to remember that money is energy. Credit cards and debit cards make that energy neutral. When you have that cash and coins in your wallet or in a jar and you see it or reach for it and exchange it for a good or service you feel it as a gain or a loss. When you swipe a credit card or debit card, you don’t feel that energy or don’t feel it as strongly! Credit card companies and banks don’t want us to feel that energy! They know when we don’t feel it, they make more money! Our debt is their gain! Because of this reason I have been doing the best I can at spending cash and saving my coins and leaving my credit cards and debit card at home! I am in the process of having a more personal relationship with money!
