4 Ways To Attract & Manifest More Abundance Into Your Life

Inspiration

One of the first questions I always ask myself is, "How are you receiving?"

In other words, what I am doing to attract bigger and better things into my life.


In my opinion, abundance doesn't always equate to material possessions. I like to make sure my soul is balanced enough to receive the right people and opportunities. I want to be sure that my mind is clear enough to be receptive to the right channels that are going to help bring an abundance of creativity and ideas to propel me forward career-wise.

I am a feisty one, so I often have to check myself and ask if my attitude is blocking doors or opening up new ones? I think of life being controllable by our actions and our very own thoughts. The Law of Attraction is really real. In fact, it can be a little too real at times. I have so much I wish to achieve, but realized that without certain shifts and changes in my everyday life, I'll have a hard time receiving the blessings I so desperately desire.

The negativity in our lives creates clutter. Eventually, that clutter begins to crowd space, the space you need and no longer have to receive all that you desire. Here's what to focus on to ensure you are creating space in your life for abundance and prosperity in every aspect.

Acknowledge Your Current Blessings

The easiest way to stunt the chances of attracting new blessings is living in expectancy to receiving something new and not being grateful for what you presently have. Living without gratitude is a way to live forever unhappy. If I am always living for the next thing, I am never completely satisfied when it does arrive. Instead, I choose to enjoy being grateful and blessed with what I do have. That is how I attract an abundance of more blessings.

Shift Your Perspective

I live by the motto "Change your mindset, change your life." Your thoughts are really powerful. Often what we think become words that are later regretfully spoken. There is power in the tongue and often our words become reality. I have had terrible habits in the past thinking myself deeper and deeper into a depressive state. I hear all of the time that thoughts are so hard to control when, in reality, if you're centered on positive things 24/7, you'll be fine. How I keep positive thoughts flowing is I pray and talk to God often. I listen to good, upbeat music. I am constantly reading motivational books, articles, quotes, and so much more.

You are what you're influenced by so I am always making sure to surround myself with positive influences.

Change How You Treat Others

There was once a time when I treated everyone how I felt. Not because I am an evil-spirited person, but because it was easier that way. When you're down and out, it almost kills you to see others happy. What we fail to realize is we attract how we react.

Karma is real and what you're putting out into the world is sure to come back to you tenfold. Reevaluating how I conduct myself in the presence of others really changed my life. I focus on how I am treating people daily. What's also important is how we receive news of other people's blessings. When we aren't happy for others, we are leaving room for doors to remain shut on us. Often what you're jealous or envious of is what you want. Does it make sense to hate what you want? If God is blessing them, trust that He's in the neighborhood and blessings are coming your way.

Evaluate How You View/Treat Yourself

If you don't treat and regard yourself as royalty, then how can you expect the same treatment from others?

I once lacked so much love and respect for myself, it was sickening. My terrible treatment towards myself was also the gateway for others to treat me just the same. When you're used to something, it's hard to know when enough is enough of the same harmful mistreatment. We tend to subject ourselves to what we think we deserve, not understanding that we have the power to change it so effortlessly. When I changed how I treated me, I attracted others who valued and respected me just as much as I respected myself.

You are the mirror of the world. There's no way to receive the blessings of quality people who value you if you aren't mirroring the same. Just food for thought.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.
