As with all manifestations, if you’re looking to create powerful money manifestations, you have to start with the basics: clarity. You need to be clear on what kind of relationship you want with money, what you need from it, and how you can ask for it.
Whether you’re looking to build a new relationship with your money, heal your existing one, or expand it, there are 3 steps to create your clearest and most powerful manifestations. The universe cannot provide you with something if you aren’t clear on what it is that you wish you create.
Each day, as you sit down to do your manifestations, remember that Thinking, Knowing, and Feeling are ALL essential. Here is how you can use those 3 elements to build the money foundation you want and align your money partnership with your desired 3D reality.
Always think of yourself and of others as completely rich. Regardless of socioeconomic status, your view should be each person you encounter is full of richness. Don’t focus on the poverty, focus on the richness. Rich is an experience: life experience, wisdom, knowledge, all kinds of things. Abundance isn’t just about money. It’s about what we have a lot of.
When we have an unhealthy or unaligned money story we tend to fixate on what isn’t working and we focus on where we have a deficit. We attract what we put out, so when we focus on our deficits then we activate the energy of deficit in our lives. We’re adept at identifying all of the things that are wrong what needs to be fixed.
Very rarely do we spend time celebrating what is right. When we identify abundance we invite it in because we acknowledge it. When we start noticing abundance, all of a sudden there is way more that shows up. Perhaps that abundance was already around us but we didn’t know because we were fixating on our deficit. Think of your abundance and make it your focus to attract what you desire.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius
Know what you want, and know what you need to release to make room for it. You can’t allow for something new if you don’t have room to receive it. You know if you have space for what you want. Deliberate action on behalf of your knowledge and desires creates consistent attraction. When we make room the Universe will always fill it.
The Universe doesn’t deal with empty space, it’s all about filling the vacuum. Some people even notice experiments where they move furniture around and get rid of a certain amount of items every day to make room for new. It truly does make a difference.
This is about the intention behind the action. Just taking the action and moving stuff around with the knowing of what you want behind it will invite in something new. Be mindful and specific about what actions are best going to support your healthy money story you wish to create and attract.
If you are clear with your intention and clear about what you want (and we all know, we are built to know), then you will easily be able to identify the things that are blocking it.
Feel what you want as though it is already happening. Focus on what you want your life to look like with money and you will really feel as though it is already happening. If we want to travel to some place warm, we can feel our feet on the sand and feel the sun on our skin and feel the warm breeze rushing by.
The more real something is, the more it’s already evidence that it’s possible. When something is a possibility, it can become a reality. Embody your desire to manifest it as the reality you crave. Remember to energize this on a DAILY basis! That’s when the Universe can act on your behalf!
“I think we manifest the very thing we put out. If you’re putting out negativity, then you’re going to retrieve that same sentiment. If you emanate joy, it comes back to you.” – Robin Wright
These are just a few essentials to help you start to be open to the possibilities around abundance and money. It begins with clarity. Share the clarity with the universe. Think: set your focus on the richness of what you have instead of your deficit to fire up the law of attraction. Know: know what you want, know that you can have it, and then take the action to make space to receive it from the universe. The universe can not oblige you when you don’t have space to receive its gift.
Feel: Embody the energy of the reality you crave to begin activating it so that it can manifest as your 3D reality. If you can’t imagine your reality, you cannot create it. Think, Know, and Feel with Clarity.

Why Do We Have An Unconscious Bias and How Can We Manage It?
When I hear someone using my name once in a while throughout the conversation we are having, I cannot stop myself thinking “this person must have read Dale Carnegie’s books or must have been influenced by someone who read them…” Have you just recalled a similar moment and it felt nice?
As Dale Carnegie famously said, “Remember that a person’s name is, to that person, the sweetest and the most important sound in any language”. Why did Dale Carnegie highlight the importance of an individual’s name to that person in his “How to Win Friends and Influence People” book published in 1936?
Each and every one of us wants to feel special and unique. I guess he recommends using the person’s name in the conversation because that is one of the easiest ways to grab that person’s attention so that we can enhance the chances of getting our point across. However, I am more interested in this from the other side; hearing our names directly addresses our individuality, our need or desire to feel special and unique.
Let’s park this one for now and we will come back.
Categorization is essential to our survival
There is countless scientific research telling us about how our brains recognize similarities and put things into categories, which has been crucial to our survival in evolution and still helps us with a lot of things from learning new things to coping with the continuous influx of massive amounts of information through our senses.
The continuous influx of information is mostly handled by our subconscious mind rather than conscious. It is estimated that our brains receive about 11 million bits of information every second through our senses, of which only 40-50 bits can be processed by our conscious mind. We process more information than we are aware of. The magic here is the subconscious mind.
An example is when you are at a very loud party where you hear a lot of words flying around without you recognizing each one of them, then suddenly, you immediately catch it when you hear your name. Your subconscious had been processing all of those words, without your awareness, but informed your conscious mind when your name was out there because it was relevant to you.
In order to most effectively process this much information and inform the conscious mind with only the relevant ones, our subconscious employs categorization as one of its strategies.
When our ancestors encountered some deadly predators in the African savanna, their subconscious prompted their conscious mind to immediately fight or flight by categorizing the information gathered through their senses into “predator / life threat / take action”. Most probably we are not descendants of the ones that were frozen rather than fighting or flighting!
Although it is a completely different situation, the same strategy applied in remembering lists. Let’s look at the below two lists.
- lion, eagle, shark, leopard, hawk, whale, panther, falcon and dolphin
- lion, leopard, panther, eagle, hawk, falcon, shark, whale and dolphin
The second list is easy to remember because it is reordered into relevant groups even though the content of the both lists are identical.
Subconsciousness is the magic and categorization is one of its key strategies. It is essential to our survival, learning new skills and processing information as well as bringing back the information we had processed and stored.
This amazing skill has its drawbacks
As a result of our brains’ categorization strategy, we also categorize people, especially if we don’t know them as well as our closest ones.
Imagine I am sitting at the table next to yours while you are having your favorite coffee and working on your computer or reading your novel at your neighborhood coffee shop. I stand up, very calmly grab your bag, and start walking away. Your reaction might be quite different depending on my outfit. It could be much more vocal and harsh if I have a dirty T-Shirt and a pair of torn jeans on. However, if I have some navy colored, 3-piece suit and well-pressed white button up shirt on, you might even say something like “Excuse me, you might have picked up my bag by mistake”. (There is an experiment done by social psychologists which reported similar results)
Similarly, I would not be surprised to hear that my co-worker’s spouse is very skilled and knowledgeable in English grammar and literature because he is an English teacher. However, I would not expect it from my co-worker herself because she is an outstanding chemical engineer.
This is defined as unconscious bias or stereotyping, as a result of our subconscious brain’s categorization strategy. The outfit I have at the coffee shop impacts your response to my action, because it puts me into a different category in your mind depending on my outfit. My co-worker’s and her spouse’s backgrounds make me put them into different categories, which might mislead me sometimes.
Just like we categorize things, it is very natural that we categorize people.
The key question here for me is; how do we truly treat people as individuals so that they feel unique, just like as they would want, while we know that our brains categorize people?
We can overcome unconscious bias
Leonard Mlodinow, in his enlightening book “Subliminal”, suggests that “if we are aware of our bias and motivated to overcome it, we can.” That doesn’t mean that we need to fight our brain’s categorization strategy. We just need to employ our conscious mind more when we are working or dealing with individuals.
Our unconscious bias might tell us scientists are bunch of technical nerds who cannot understand abstract concepts that marketers are talking about or it might say that marketers are some daydreamers who need to be grounded by scientists to the real world all the time. I am an engineer and I love thinking in abstract terms and I worked with quite a lot of marketers who thought primarily in factual and concrete terms.
Spending some effort to learn more about individuals will help overcome unconscious bias. Gathering more information and qualities about them will make it easier for us to treat them as individuals rather than a member of the category we put them in our minds.
The moral of the story here is to recognize the fact that our brains do categorize, and it is essential; but also, to recognize that every individual wants to feel unique. When we appreciate these two and keep reminding them to ourselves, we are one step closer to figuring out our own way to overcome unconscious bias and treat people more like individuals.

The Problem Is Not Actually the Problem: Here’s Why
With my understanding of the Three Principles, which is deepening month-by-month, I’m becoming more curious about whether the ‘problem’ that we think we have, is really a problem. Not for one second am I dismissing a persons’ experience; I’m human after all and I encounter challenges and what I think are ‘problems’ just like the next person. (more…)
5 Things You Can Do to Fend off Boredom and Stay Focused
Curiosity is human nature and it’s only natural that humans will lose interest in a topic after a while. This has been a topic that has been extensively explored among children, teenagers and adults by a psychologist with similar results being reported from each of the categories. Human’s minds are therefore prone to boredom, making it important for each professional to spend some time to understand the factors that drive boredom and strategies the individuals needs to use to overcome boredom and focus on their profession and development.

Decision and Failure: Deciding That Failure is Not an Option
Nobody likes wasting time, money or opportunities by making a bad business decision. We can certainly identify what “bad” looks and feels like, however we should be identifying what the “win” looks like too. Too often we focus on the bad, which puts us in victim mode that perpetuates a scarcity mindset which leads us directly into becoming frozen or stuck. (more…)
