#1 Acknowledge that abundance exists:

When you acknowledge that abundance exists, you are opening yourself up to the possibility of abundance in your own life. Abundance is all around us, we just have to be open to seeing it.

How? Start by looking for abundance in your life right now. What are you grateful for? Chances are when you start to look, you will see abundance everywhere! Before you know it, you’ll have the abundance mindset.

Example: I am abundance because…

I have a roof over my head.

I have food to eat.

I have clothes to wear.

I have a job.

I have a family who loves me.

I have friends.

I have good health.

I have a support system.

abundance is all around me!

#2 Be open to receiving abundance:

In order to receive abundance, we must first be open to it. This means letting go of any beliefs or blocks that are preventing us from receiving abundance. When we are open to receiving abundance, we send a clear message to the Universe that we are ready and willing to receive all that it has to offer us.

Tip? A great way to start opening yourself up to abundance is by practicing gratitude. When you are grateful for what you have, it creates more abundance in your life. Before you know it, you’ll have the abundance mindset.

Example: I am open to abundance because…

I am grateful for what I have.

I let go of any beliefs that are holding me back.

I am ready and willing to receive all that the Universe has to offer me.

abundance is flowing into my life!

#3 Visualize abundance in your life:

When you visualize abundance in your life, you are planting the seeds of abundance. The better you can see it, the more likely it is to become a reality. So take some time each day to close your eyes and visualize abundance in all areas of your life.

Tip? Make your visualization as realistic as possible. Include as many senses as you can (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch). The more realistic it is, the more powerful it will be.

Example: I am abundance because…

I visualize abundance in all areas of my life.

I see myself surrounded by abundance.

I feel the abundance flowing into my life.

I smell the abundance all around me.

I taste the abundance in every bite I take.

I touch the abundance with my hands.

abundance is everywhere!

#4 Release the need to control everything:

One of the biggest obstacles to abundance is our need to control everything. When we try to control everything, we are really just operating from a place of fear. Instead, try to let go and trust that things will work out the way they are meant to.

How? Practice letting go by surrendering to the flow of life. Go with the flow and see what happens!

Example: I am abundance because…

I release the need to control everything.

I let go and trust that things will work out the way they are supposed to.

I go with the flow of life.

abundance is flowing into my life!

#5 Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want:

Another way to shift your thinking from scarcity to abundance is to focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. This may seem like a subtle distinction, but it can make a big difference in your overall mindset. When you focus on what you want, you are sending a clear message to the Universe that you are open to receiving abundance.

How? The next time you find yourself thinking about what you don’t want, take a moment to refocus your thoughts on what you do want. For example, if you don’t want to be in debt, focus on what it would feel like to be financially free.

Example: I am abundance because…

I focus on what I want, not what I don’t want.

I take a moment to refocus my thoughts on what I do want.

I am open to receiving abundance in all areas of my life.

abundance is flowing into my life!

#6 Practice gratitude for the abundance already present in your life:

Gratitude is one of the most powerful abundance tools available to us. When we take the time to appreciate all the abundance already present in our lives, we open ourselves up to even more abundance. So make it a point to practice gratitude on a daily basis and watch as your life starts to change for the better.

How? A great way to practice gratitude is to keep a daily gratitude journal. Every day, take a few minutes to write down all the things you are grateful for. As you start to focus on the abundance in your life, you will be amazed at how much more abundance you will attract!

I practice gratitude for the abundance already present in my life.

I keep a daily gratitude journal.

I focus on the abundance in my life.

#7 Expect abundance:

When you expect abundance, you are setting the stage for abundance to enter your life. When you have an attitude of expectancy, you are sending a powerful message to the Universe that abundance is on its way.

Tip? One way to increase your expectancy is to start acting as if abundance is already present in your life. For example, if you are wanting more money, start acting as if you already have it. How would you act if you were a millionaire? Start living your life as if that were true and watch as the Universe starts to deliver abundance to you. Before you know it, you’ll have the abundance mindset.

#8 Take inspired action towards your goals:

In order to attract abundance into your life, you must take inspired action towards your goals. This means taking actions that are in alignment with your desires. When you take inspired action, you are sending a clear message to the Universe that you are ready and willing to receive abundance.

How? The best way to take inspired action is to listen to your intuition and follow your heart. If something feels right, go for it! You will be amazed at how much abundance will start to flow into your life when you start following your heart.

#9 Allow abundance to flow into your life:

Another way to have the abundance mindset is to allow abundance to flow into your life. This means letting go of any resistance you may have towards abundance. When you allow abundance to flow into your life, you are opening yourself up to limitless possibilities.

How? A great way to allow abundance to flow into your life is to meditate on the feeling of abundance. Sit quietly and focus on the feeling of abundance. Visualize abundance flowing into your life in all forms: money, love, success, etc. The more you focus on the feeling of abundance, the more abundance you will attract into your life. Before you know it, you’ll have the abundance mindset.

#10 Trust that the Universe will provide for you:

One of the most important things to remember is that the Universe always has your back. When you trust that the Universe will provide for you, you are opening yourself up to limitless abundance. So have faith and trust that abundance is on its way.

How? A great way to increase your faith is to practice visualization. Visualize abundance flowing into your life in all forms. See yourself achieving your goals and living your dreams. The more you focus on abundance, the more abundance you will attract into your life.
