If you have some cool things that you are wanting to create in your life, whether it comes to money or anything else, you are going to love today’s episode of the podcast. I’m going to be sharing with you my top five favorite manifesting hacks.
Hello, and welcome to The Clare Wood Podcast. This is your weekly dose of all things money to help you intentionally create a profitable business and a life you love. I have the difficult conversations about money so you can make more money with ease. Each week, I share how you can use mindset and the practical foundations of finance to elevate your earnings without sacrificing the things that are important to you because you can, and should, be making more money.
Write your goals down
Now, my first hack is to actually set your goals and write them down. If I was to say to you right here and right now what are the biggest things you are wanting to create in your life right now, you might be able to rattle off some high level vague things. Like, “I want to make this much money,” or, “I want to get a new car.” But when is the last time you actually sat down and did a big power session where you got super clear about what your goals are and got really specific about what they look like?
Sometimes people will tell me they have an income goal of $100,000 a year and I’m like, “Well, how much profit is that?” and they look at me a little bit blankly. “What if you are making $100,000 a year, but it meant that you worked 12 hours a day, seven days a week? “Oh. Yeah, no, that doesn’t really vibe with me either.” When you say you want a car, what kind of car? Is it any car? Is there a particular make, model and year that you are after? Sit down and get super specific about what it is that you want.
Obsess over your goals
The next hack I have is to become obsessed with your goals.
If you have spent any time with me, you would’ve heard me talk about the dream house. It is the next big thing that I am wanting to manifest or create in my life, and I talk about it a lot. In fact, my kids are always asking us, “When is the dream house coming?” So if you don’t know the backstory a couple of years ago, I decided that I wanted to move to the beach and being even clearer, I wanted to live on a canal on the water.
I journaled about this for years and years and thought about what the dream house looked like. Earlier this year, we finally bought a block of land. Well, actually we bought a house on a block of land, but let’s just say that the house isn’t exactly much right now. In fact, we affectionately call it the beach shack. But it is in our perfect location on our perfect street and yes, we’re living on the water, walking distance to the beach. However, as I shared, the house we are living in right now, well, it’s not exactly the dream home. So the next big thing that we are wanting to do is to be able to build our dream house. I am going about this process through lots of different ways, which I will dive into in another episode of the podcast. But the point that I’m trying to make by this hack is that when you have a big goal, become obsessed with it. Think about it all the time. I know whenever a new magazine comes in, I look through and see if there’s any new pictures that I can add to my vision board for the dream house. I talk about it all the time. I get excited about it all the time.
As I shared earlier, even the kids are saying, “When is this happening?” and we only just moved into this house earlier this year. There’s a saying, which is where your focus goes, energy flows. So start to focus on what it is that you desire. A lot of people focus on what it is that they don’t desire. Like, “I hope I don’t run out of money to afford my mortgage.” Or, “I hope this doesn’t happen.” Or, “I hope my business doesn’t go under.” Rather than thinking about what you don’t want, become obsessed with what you do want.
Visualise your goals
This leads me to my third hack, which is visualise it, see it as real.
If you’d have told me 10 years ago that I would be living on a house with a husband and two kids, I don’t know that I could have wrapped my head around it, but here I am. That happened through incrementally getting comfortable with the idea that, “Hey, I want to create these things in my life.” Start to visualise yourself in the car or having the big launch or in the relationship or whatever the big thing is that you want. See yourself doing it all the time.
Our minds are so, so powerful and this is why I am such a big believer in the power of mindset. If you’re wanting to create different outcomes in any area of your life, spend time visualizing it being that way. At the moment, as I’m still in the process of recovering from my car accident, I’m really visualising me being healthy again, me being able to go about my life as normal and not be on pain medications.
This is what you can start to do with your big goals too. Spend time visualising it and start to blur the line where your mind goes, “Is this real, or is it happening very, very soon?” Either way, spending time living it as if it was real or start to bring it closer into your reality.
Watch your language
The next hack I have is watch your languaging. Now, it’s really, really funny how powerful we are when it comes to our words and it’s something I have to catch myself on all the time, but there’s a lot of power in the words that we speak, because what we are saying out loud is what other people around us are perceiving and it is what is going into our subconscious programming.
So for example, I remember one day someone said to me, “Oh, you’re rich,” and my instant reaction was like, “I’m not rich.” Now I catch myself and I say, “I am rich,” even though perhaps my wealth isn’t quite where I eventually want it to be, if that makes sense. So it’s starting to catch your languaging around it. With my children, when they’re saying, “When’s the dream house coming?” I don’t go, “Oh, don’t be silly, kids. That’s years and years away yet.” I go, “It’s coming soon, guys,” and it’s just such a little differences in the languaging that we use that make all the difference. So start to catch the words and the phrases that you say and start to catch yourself when you are minimizing something or saying, “That’s not going to happen for me.” Or even when you are using negative language talking about someone else who perhaps has already achieved what it is that you desire.
I noticed myself the other day, I saw a big house and while I didn’t say it out loud in my head, I thought, “I bet you that’s inherited money,” and I went, “Whoa, that’s a money story there.” How judgemental of me to even think that for a start, and secondly, if I have that belief that someone who owns a big house like that inherited the money, what do you think I’m saying to my subconscious? “It’s not going to happen for you. You don’t have rich parents. You’re not going to inherit a big house like that, so forget about it. It’s not possible for you.” If I catch myself and say, “I can’t wait to own a big house like that one day,” see how differently that comes across. See the different messaging that it’s going into my subconscious mind. I know there is so much power in words, so catch yourself in the words you both say out loud, say to other people, and also say internally in your mind.
Celebrate what you do have
The next manifesting hack I have for you is in this space of celebration. So often we are focused on the future. We’re focused on what we don’t have yet that we forget to appreciate what we do have now. I have a beautiful practice that I do every day. When we get up and go for our morning walk to the beach, I close my eyes down and I think of all of the things that I’m grateful for in my life. Not thinking about the future, just thinking about right now. I’m celebrating this and this and this and this and this and this. Oh my gosh. I am so, so lucky. My husband and I grab each other all the time. We look out at the water and we say, “Can you believe we live here? Can you believe this is our life?” When we get up in the morning and we walk to the beach, we stand there in awe and say, “I cannot believe we live here. How incredible is this?”
Now I am sure that some people might come to our house for the first time and think, “Really? You moved from that big five bedroom house into the little shack and you are still so super happy here?” We genuinely are. Celebration and being grateful for what you have is such a powerful hack to attract even more into your life.
Also, be patient. We live in a society where we are programmed to get things instantly. Have you ever had the experience where you’ve seen someone who’s lost a bunch of weight and you say to them, “Hey, how did you do it?” and they say, “Oh, eating healthy and exercise.” Don’t you have this instant … like you wish they just told you, “Oh, I took this magic tablet and then overnight I’d lost all the weight and was in great shape.” It’s funny as a society how we are programmed to have things instantaneously. We live in a world where at the click of a button, we can be connected to answers and pictures and people from all around the world and it’s a really, really powerful skill to start to learn to be patient.
It felt like forever to me before I got this house. As I said, it was years of me journaling, visualizing, doing all of these things that I’ve shared with you today before it actually came to fruition. Now that I’m here, I look back and I think, “That actually happened pretty quickly, really. Was only a couple of years.” But when you are in something, it feels like forever. I know that I was single for a very long time and I was thinking, “Am I ever going to meet someone?” Now that I’ve met my hubby and been together for nine years, I think, “Oh, what was I in such a rush for?” I told my single friends, I’m like, “Don’t worry about it. It’ll happen when the timing’s right.” This really is true when it comes to bringing your goals into your life, learning the skill of patience and having the faith that the thing that you desire is coming to you.
Maybe it’s going to take a little bit longer. Maybe it won’t. Sometimes things happen really, really quickly and sometimes they take a little bit longer, but having patience is an incredible skill and it’s really essential in the process of manifestation. Because if you are expecting everything to come to you instantaneously, you’ll get frustrated and you will give up on your goals and trust me, that is not what we want you to do.
So to sum up today, my top five hacks for creating something amazing that you want to bring into your life. Number one, set some really clear and specific goals. What is it that you actually want? Number two, become obsessed with your goals. Let everyone around you know what they are. Talk about them like it is happening. Number three, visualise him spend time when you start to blur the line between reality and what it is that you desire. Number four, watch your languaging. Be careful with how you talk about the thing that you want. Number five, celebration and gratitude. Celebrate and be grateful for what it is that you already have. You can desire more and yet still be super grateful for what it is that you have in your life already. And also, be patient. Have the faith that your goals are coming to you and keep living each day in the faith and that it is coming in time.
