Imagine for a moment that every word that you said magically came to life. Now what if I told you that it’s already happening. You speak your life into existence. If you’re always saying that “I’m broke,” or “I’m not good with money” or “People won’t pay more to work with me,” you shouldn’t be surprised that your finances mirror your words. Words have power. Each word has its own vibration that you send out into the Universe as a creative force.

Priestesses, shamans, and witches understood words to be magical tools. They used spells, incantations, and prayers to summon the power of spirits so that they could manipulate energy and change events and outcomes. The Bible co-signs this spiritual concept. Proverbs 18:21 says: “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.” The scripture means that your words either create blessings or curses in your life. Therefore, if you desire a higher income or more clients or an upgraded life, change your words.

Like many women, in my quest to become wealthier and happier I read tons of self-help books, spent a shitload of money on big name seminars, and even participated in a sweat lodge to rid myself of negative energy. Although I gained new insights I didn’t see significant improvements until I read the book This Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn. Shinn was a metaphysician whose work focused on positive thinking and affirmations. In the Game of Life she says, “The invisible forces are ever working for man who is always ‘pulling the strings’ himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract.” I realized that nothing was changing in my life because I wasn’t changing how I spoke about myself as a woman and business owner.

My words were reflecting my secret fears about “not being good enough” to earn more money as an entrepreneur. As a result I did a lot of busy work but didn’t show up powerfully and consistently as a business coach, so my income plateaued. After reading The Game of Life I started the daily practice of journaling so that I could better understand my thoughts. Journaling was a way for me to connect with Spirit, cut through my own BS, and see the truth of who I am. I also began saying affirmations each day to anchor in new beliefs that supported my dreams and goals. It’s not hype to say that this process allowed me to not only increase my income but also manifest a range of things from free meals to large sums of money.

As a business coach for conscious women entrepreneurs, I now teach my clients these same “mindset” methods (along with traditional marketing), so that they can stop self-sabotaging themselves and create highly profitable businesses. My clients have doubled their incomes, sold their first premium programs ($3K+) and had their first $10k+ months, often starting from earning literally nothing or very little.

Your life is largely the outcome of your choices. Each choice from what you think to how you act shapes your reality. Unfortunately most of us are operating our lives from fear and a sense of unworthiness. So despite declaring that you’re ready for a come up, you invariably do (or not do) things that keep you exactly where you are. Since it takes between 21 to 66 days to reprogram your thinking it’s important to create a daily practice of journaling and affirmations to increase your faith that greater things can happen in your life. In this process you develop the belief that you deserve to receive more abundance, opportunities and money. You then are wiling to leave your comfort zone and take new actions.

Here are five tips to get you started speaking your richer life into existence:

  1. Get clear about what you want to create. When you know exactly what you want and why you can easily find words to express it.
  2. Stop talking about the past: Tell a new story; the one about where you are going, not the one about where you have been
  3. Don’t speak negatively about yourself. Be gentle with yourself and acknowledge that God loves and accepts just as you are.
  4. Don’t talk about anything that you don’t want to experience. Be mindful of speaking words or ideas associated with lack or poverty.
  5. Forgive yourself everyday and begin with a new plan to do better. Don’t carry any emotional baggage. Release whatever shame, guilt, or pain that you’re carrying to God to heal and transmute.

There’s a bigger vision from your life that’s your divine destiny. You came here for a reason. Your existence serves a purpose. Make a new decision to change your bank account and life.
