Raise your hand if you want to bring more money into your life.
I’m just assuming here but I’m going to guess, that yes, you raised your hand.
Good, you’re in the right place.
But notice how I said, bring more money into your life, not make more money. Yeah, there’s a difference and today we’re going to get a bit “woo woo” if you will.
Just meaning we’re going to focus on those money blocks and law of attraction to change your reality.
The Law of Attraction simply states that your thoughts create your reality and like attracts like. So whatever you think about you receive as it is law. If you’d like to learn more about the law of attraction you can check out The Secret movie on Netflix or ya know…Google it.
If you’re not into “woo woo” but still want to learn the action steps of making more money you can read this post.
If you’re ready to learn practical and actionable steps to remove those money blocks to allow more money into your life and you’re not afraid of a little “woo”, let’s dive in.

8 Actionable Ways to Remove Your Money Blocks
1. Stop Calling them Blocks
Hey, I warned you. We’re getting “woo” up in here.
But in all seriousness, what you say plays a major roll in how you feel and what you’re bringing into your life.
Think about it.
When you tell yourself over and over and over again how big your money blocks are you are only bringing that into your reality. Your mind is going to believe that so that’s what you’ll get.
Not only that but saying they are blocks make them sound so permanent and difficult to change or move which can make it even harder for yourself.
I’m not saying just ignore it, I’m simply saying change the words you choose to use.
Instead, say, “I’m so excited to learn how to bring more money in my life”, “I can’t wait to change my beliefs around money”.
It’s perfectly okay and actually recommended to understand there are some limiting beliefs around money but by reframing them it’ll make you see these limiting beliefs as just that, beliefs, and not blocks which sound much easier to change than a giant block of concrete.
2. Clear Out Your Spaces
If you want to bring something new into your life, you have to make room for it to come in. This means both physically and mentally.
I like to give real-life examples so let’s think of it like this.
You and your significant other want to take your relationship to the next level and move in together. You decide to just move your significant other into your apartment or house or whatever and the day they move in they have to just leave their stuff in the hallway because all your stuff is filling the home and you don’t want to make space for them.
There is simply, no room for their stuff. Do you think they’re going to feel very welcome? Or want to stick around?
And while money isn’t a physical being or person, money is still energy and to bring more of that energy into our life we have to clear up some space for it to come in.
As I said, this means physical clutter as well as mental clutter.
The easiest and most obvious place to begin is your wallet because well that’s where money comes in and out of your life. But I realize it’s 2019 so who carries cash anymore amiright, so that means clearing your computer, phone and even physical space that you pay your bills.
Following in the footsteps of Marie Kondo clear anything that doesn’t spark joy or that simply no longer serves you. This means bill receipts, that crumpled up piece of paper we all seem to have at the bottom of our drawers, that food wrapper, grocery receipts…seriously, just get rid of it.
The same holds true for your mind but changing our mindset is a much harder and larger task. I’ll talk about this more in a bit but for now, the focus would be again on things, people and places that no longer serve us or bring us joy.
Forgive yourself, people that have wronged you, situations that hurt you. Forgive it all.
This is so much easier said than done but dang, this stuff works.
I’m sure you’ve heard that saying holding onto a grudge is like trying to poison someone else but instead drinking the poison yourself.
You’re literally ONLY HURTING YOURSELF when you hold onto those situations that hurt you.
Does forgiving those people or situations mean you are ignoring what they did or giving them a free pass? Of course not, but holding onto those situations is NOT worth it.
Forgiveness is about you, not about them.
Okay cool story bro, how do you actually go about forgiving all these things that hurt you?
Sit down, breathe and then make a brainstormed list of people and situations that you need to let go of. An example is this, “my friend who stole my boyfriend”, “the guy that cut me off in traffic”, “my sibling who always got me in trouble”.
You can, of course, focus on only things that relate to money or you can do all of it. It’s really up to you and you can go in as much detail as possible. This is for your eyes only.
Once you have your list, read each situation out loud and say, “I’m sorry”, “Please Forgive me”, “Thank you and “I love you.”
This is called Ho’oponopono which is a Hawaiin prayer used to forgive yourself and others in your past.
It’s going to sound different at first and will be difficult but trust me you’re going to feel so much lighter afterward.
4. Write it out
There’s this huge misconception that you can’t write out your fears, anger or anything because well, whatever you write down comes true.
Frankly, that’s not true.
Here’s the reality, the more you let go, the more you allow to come in.
So this tip is short, sweet but effective.
Grab yourself a journal and let that stuff go. Put it all down on paper. Are you scared? Are you angry? Are you happy? Whatever, if it relates to money in some way shape or form, write that stuff down and let it all out.
I personally do this and then jump in the shower and visualize those fears, limiting beliefs, everything washing over me and down the drain.
If you want you can even burn those pages but please, please be safe and use common sense whenever using fire as a way of releasing.
The point here is to really feel and believe that those feelings are being let out and realized.
5. Practice Gratitude
Whatever we are grateful for grows.
Want your bank account to grow? Be grateful as all heck for what you do have.
Period. End of story.
Seriously, we all have something to be grateful for and if you’re reading this that means you had the money to buy a phone, or a computer to read this.
This is something that is easier said than done but gratitude has the power to change your life.
The simplest way to begin practicing gratitude is to just look at what you have in front of you right now. Chances are you had to buy it. Give thanks. Feel grateful.
Because gratitude plays such a huge roll in our lives I highly, highly, highly recommend getting your hands on The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. This is not a drill people, this book will literally give you a 28 journey to gratitude and it is pure magic.
6. Track your Finances
You can’t go in the direction you want to go if you don’t know where you’re at or coming from.
This may be one of the toughest things you have to do but if you really want to bring more money into your life, you have to get comfortable with knowing where you are right now.
When you create goals for anything you usually have a pretty clear picture of where you’re at which helps you create a plan of action to get to your end goal.
Do this with your finances.
Be diligent and see where your money is going, how much is coming in, how much is going out, what you’re spending money on, how many credit cards you have.
Getting comfortable with your money will help you see it as less of a scary thing and more of just a thing you have.
Remember, money is not good nor bad. It is a tool.
7. Create an Abundance Log
Don’t worry this may be “woo” but it’s also really really fun!
This concept is super simple, grab a journal and begin writing down everything that comes into your life that costs money.
Free coffees, discounts, a penny you found on the ground, a friend paying for lunch unexpectedly.
Seriously, every single thing.
Here’s an example:
- $45 discount on car insurance
- $3 toothpaste mom got me out of nowhere
- $100 worth of clothes from a friend
Doing this every single day will show you just how much money is actually coming into your life and will, in turn, make you FEEL more abundant. It will also make you feel more grateful.
Not only that but what we focus on increases, so when you’re putting a focus on the money and abundance coming in, you will see more abundance and money coming in. Trust me, this works.
8. Get a Mentor
In all reality, money is very deep-seated in our subconscious minds, which just means we may not even be aware of our limiting beliefs surrounding money.
These limiting beliefs are usually (but not always) created by our parents, society and the people we surround ourselves with.
Which means, it can take a bit of time and effort to repair your relationship with money.
This is where a mentor comes in. And I’m not saying you have to spend thousands of dollars and go into debt paying for coaching.
No. Just find someone online that you trust, look up to and start reading and digesting all of their stuff. And I do mean all of it. If they’ve got free stuff, get it, if they have books, buy them.
If you’re looking for a place to start there are two books that do an incredible job of making money flow into your life with easy and actionable steps and they are, You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero and Unleash your Inner Money Babe: Uplevel your Money Mindset and Manifest $1,000 in 21 days by Kathrin Zenkina.
Both of these books will take you to the next level.
