    Start by becoming aware of your inner world, any thoughts and emotions you may have around money. Does money make you feel uptight, uncomfortable, greedy or do you have an easy, healthy relationship towards money? It is essential to develop a positive mental attitude towards money. For example and belief such as I have to struggle and work hard to receive money, will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. However money flows into my life easily and gracefully, also becomes a self-fulling prophecy. Examine your beliefs towards money and change those that are not serving you to ones that do.

    Put yourself into a positive feeling state about money: imagine yourself receiving money in a joyous and fun-filled way. Imagine yourself being grateful and appreciative of the money that you receive. It is common for people to have a lot of emotional issues around money. However in reality money is just a tool that we receive for goods and services and use to buy goods and services.

    You will receive money when you express your skills and talents in the world generally, with the exception of monetary gifts and win falls. Know what your true purpose is in life, contribute to the world in a way that comes naturally to you and do it from a state of presence, with all your heart. This type of energy is infectious and people will want to pay for goods and services that are enhancing their lives.

    Plan and write out your budget so you know where you are spending your money. If your expenses exceed your income, reduce your costs so that you have a surplus of cash. Generally, avoid credit unless you have a special reason and you know you will be able to repay the debt in a timely manner. If you are short on cash—sell rather that buy—sell your pre-loved items on eBay. Each week, after paying your expenses (such as; rent/mortgage, utilities, and food) put half of your money into a savings account and create a “save half, spend half” ritual. Then you can save for a big ticket item such as an apartment/home or car. It can be empowering to have a clear goal in your mind and take steps towards achieving it! It also feels good to feel in control of your money rather than as though it is controlling you.
