Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground where we apply Law of Attraction in practical and magical ways to transform your business and life – so you can have more money, more time, and more alignment.

Let’s talk about why you have to spend money to make money.

I know… can you believe I just said that?

When you talk about manifesting and that the universe is unlimited, you would generally say, “That’s not true. You don’t HAVE to spend money to make money. You can just be in alignment with the vibration of abundance and attract money to you.”

Totally true. Not saying that’s not true, but what I’m also saying is that if you are unwilling to spend or refuse to spend money or you’re scared of spending money or you just don’t like spending money, then what you’re actually doing is you’re blocking the flow of money.

Money is a flow of energy.

It flows TO you and THROUGH you.





When I teach what it takes to attract more money, keep more money, and help that money grow and multiply, the practical steps around running your business and spending money in really smart and wise ways that are a great investment for your business -they’re an important part of the process.

Spending money to make money and knowing that this is an investment that comes back to me multiplied and generally in life having that attitude – that I can spend money on this and that and the other (within reason by being not totally flippant about it and just blowing everything… because that’s a really bad habit and we’ll talk about that in a moment) – but knowing that you can spend money on things that are in alignment with what you’re all about, in alignment with where you’re going, and you can feel really comfortable knowing that – that’s part of the flow.

If you think about it, if you are a pipe of abundance, money flows to you and through you.

If you block the end and you don’t let anything flow out, you’re going to end up with some congestion and no more money can flow in.

You do need to get comfortable with allowing the money to flow out of your experience so that it can continue to flow INTO your experience.

Flow means being in the flow of life… not hoping to manifest some money and then hoarding it, holding onto it out of fear that no more will come. That’s not what we’re about, is it?

So I talked about healthy patterns of spending around money, and there are also some unhealthy spending patterns around money. BUT.. some of the spending patterns around money that you would think are actually good, like accumulating lots of money, are not necessarily healthy. If they’re coming from that point of view of “lack” and fear and “What if there’s not enough? What if no more comes tomorrow?” then that’s part of a really unhelpful story that’s keeping you trapped in a vibration that does not match abundance.
Life is fearful, and even though you might have some money coming to you, you’re certainly not feeling abundant.

Trust me, abundance is a feeling and not a dollar amount.

So that is the starting point. See what your patterns are around money. Ask, “What are my habit patterns when it comes to spending money and relating to money?” because they’re your first indicator of some of those old stories that are lurking beneath the surface that are stopping you from really getting in alignment and allowing yourself to be in the flow.

I call this your Money Habit Archetype.

If you don’t yet know what your Money Habit Archetype is, then do the quiz from the link in the description, because once you find out what your Money Habit Archetype is, that is your first step to uncovering those patterns that are lurking beneath the surface and that is what will allow you to take the next step and really step into the flow abundance.

It’s a beautiful, beautiful place to be!

So let me know in the comments below what your Money Habit Archetype is, and until I see you next, keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.
