The secret power of acting as if (it’s not what you think!)

The secret power of acting as if (it’s not what you think!)

The power of acting as if is not faking it til you make it.

In fact – it’s kind of the opposite.

So I want to know:

  • Do you act as if you already are the person you hope to become? 
  • Do you act as if you already have some of those things you hope to have and plan to have? 
  • And do you act as if you’re already living that life that you desire? 

Cary Grant is quoted as saying, “I acted like Cary Grant for so long that I became him.”

(And if you don’t know who Cary Grant is, it’s because you’re a lot younger than me.) 

It’s genius advice because here’s the thing:
We all go on a journey in life. We start out in one place as a certain person, and then we aim to have the life of this new person that we want to become. 

This new life cannot be lived by the same person as the one who is at the beginning of the journey. 

This life can only be lived by the person who has created it. Who’s comfortable in it. 

So the trick – as with all things I teach – is to start from the inside out. 

You have to become that person.






You have to think, speak, feel and act like that person who has the life you desire. 

You have to tap into the power of acting as if.

And then the outside of you can start to fall into place and match that.

Acting as if isn’t about faking it until you make it. It’s not about being fake at all.

It’s actually about BECOMING REAL… becoming your new reality.

It’s about lining up your thoughts, feelings, words and actions, and having them all be congruent. This means that to your nervous system and to the quantum field to which you put out this constant signal, you’re sending a really clear congruent message of, “This is who I now am.” 

Then the outside of you can start to morph, and the pieces of the puzzle can fall together for you. Everything can come together for you to match what’s going on on the inside of you. 

But you need to start inside, and acting as if is a wonderful way of adding another layer to the work you’re already doing by managing: 

    • How you’re feeling
    • The thoughts you’re thinking
    • The words that you’re speaking
    • What you’re consuming in terms of media and the conversations you have 

Acting as if is very powerful because the way you act directly speaks to the way you think and what you truly believe about yourself. 

Just do any little token gestures, such as buying the more expensive cheese at the supermarket or walking up to somebody at a networking meeting, introducing yourself confidently and asking them about themself. 

Do something that you wouldn’t normally do, but that that person that you hope to become would totally do every single day. 

Pick something as an experiment for the next seven days and start acting as if. 

I challenge you to do it for seven days and I’d love to hear what shifts for you, how it helps you become more congruent and feel more congruent with where you’re going, and what happens.

The trick to manifesting money fast that works every time

The trick to manifesting money fast that works every time

Let’s talk about the trick to manifesting money fast that works every time. 

This is so counterintuitive to what most people think and do, that they get it all wrong. They screw it up. 

So they think that manifesting money fast just isn’t really possible. 

But you’re about to find out what it is and how it works, so stick around. 

If you’ve tried manifesting money before, you’ve probably noticed there’s a big difference between manifesting money and manifesting money fast

Let’s start by asking: Is manifesting money fast even possible?




Well, as far as the universe is concerned, anything is possible and everything is possible. 

Time is just a manmade illusion because all possibilities actually exist all at once. 

So yes, anything is possible… including manifesting money fast

You may be wondering, then why do people find it so hard? 

Well, it’s for the same reason that they asked the question in the first place – they believe it’s going to be hard. They believe it’s going to take a long time, especially when it comes to larger amounts of money. 

The universe always responds, you get what you expect. 

And so that’s the first key to manifesting money fast.

To actually believe it’s possible in the first place. 

Next, you not only need to believe it, but you need to demonstrate that you believe it. Get one better and actually demonstrate that you expect it

Think about it, when you expect something, you get ready. You take action, just as if you’re expecting a visitor to come and stay with you. You prepare, you get the guest room ready, you make sure they have clean linen, that they have fresh towels, you plan on what you’re going to do together and you make sure you’re actually home when they arrive. 

And you need to do the same with money. 

If you just believe it might be possible, and you’re sort of hopeful, but you really doubt that it will happen at all, then what you’ll do is you’ll sit back and wait and see what happens. 

What then happens is you end up in a stalemate with the universe where you’re waiting for it and it’s waiting for you.

You’re waiting for it to show you the money and it’s waiting for you to actually show up and prove that you expect it. 

So taking action that demonstrates that you actually really expect it to happen is incredibly powerful. 

That does not mean I want you to go out and sign a contract for a $5 million house or a new Ferrari. 

I want you to do everything that you can possibly do before the money has to show up. Every single thing that you would do if you knew without a shadow of a doubt that that money is going to arrive. 

Start by going for a test drive or going to some open inspections. Don’t just do it as some little token gesture – a little throw-away crumb to the universe so it can give you what you really want. 

Actually do it from that place of “the money’s coming, I’m getting ready.” 

Now that you actually believe it’s possible and you’re expecting it – or at least you’re pretending to for now – what next? 

Here it is, the thing you’ve been waiting for, the trick to manifesting money fast that works every time. 

This is where you need to let go. This is where you need to surrender and where you need to detach from the outcome. 

You really need to find a place within you, where whether it happens or not, there’ll be no disappointment. 

I know this is probably totally counterintuitive to you. It is for most people because most people think that they have to stay right on it – they have to write it and they have to make sure it happens. 

But when you’re doing that, you’re actually just getting in the way of the universe.

You’re micromanaging the universe. 

And what you’re really doing is you’re showing your expectation that it may not happen. You’re throwing a whole lot of resistance in the mix, and your vibration starts to turn towards “it’s not here and I really wanted to be here. So I’m going to make sure it comes because it’s not here. And have I mentioned that it’s not here??” 

So guess what do you then do? That’s right, you get in the way and block the flow. 

What we need to do here is get you distracted and busy with something else, so the universe can actually do its job. 

Ask yourself: If I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it was happening, that it was going to be coming… what would I do? What would I be busy doing? Would I be busy looking for it, watching for it, running to the letterbox over and over again? Or would I just get on with my day and know that it’ll show up? 

You might not be able to decide exactly the moment that it shows up but it’ll be there. 

And so you really need to get to that place of expectation, just as you do with the mail being delivered or the sun rising tomorrow. You just need to detach – it is not your work to figure out how to make it happen. 

You have a choice in how you behave, act, think, feel, what you do and every single moment… that determines what you get. 

But you do not have control over exactly how that all comes together, and exactly how and when it’ll drop into your lap. So that’s the kind of level of detachment you want to get to. You want to get to a ‘Yeah, of course, it’s totally coming and almost forgot it was coming because I’m so busy with everything else,’ state. 

This is the paradox of manifesting. Choice but not control. 

You can’t make it come fast, but you can allow it to come. 

The level to which you’re able to allow determines how fast that comes. 

This is what it means to live in a place where you don’t worry about money, where you just allow it to flow and that allows it to flow in ever-increasing amounts. 

This is exactly what we do in the Magnetic Money program. So if you’re ready for the next step – if you’re ready to embrace your unlimited potential and never worry about money again – then come join us in the Magnetic Money program. 

Let me know in the comments – WHICH of the keys I cover do you know you can improve upon? Which one challenges you? Where can you improve to help you start enjoying Law of Attraction success and be able to manifest money fast?

Until I see you next, remember it’s time for you to embrace your unlimited potential.

Techniques I use for manifesting money to grow my business

Techniques I use for manifesting money to grow my business

In this blog, I’m going to share with you my three favourite techniques that I use for manifesting money to grow my business.

I’m also going to share three critical tips to help you gather momentum so that manifesting money isn’t just something you do, but it’s somebody you become.






If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, it’ll probably come as no surprise that with these techniques, we’re going to cover the entire magnetic money trifecta – the way you feel, the way you think, and the things you do. This trifecta determines what you manifest, what your mindset around money is, and how you manage your money. 

After all, this is the key to manifesting money, growing your business and getting to a point where you no longer worry about money.

1. Keep an abundance journal

This one is all about how I feel, which helps me with manifesting more money to grow my business. 

What I do here is I focus on the abundance that I do have. 

One of the most critical elements in this journey is that you learn to train your focus, because your focus trains your vibration. Where your attention goes, your energy flows and what you focus on expands. And whatever you focus on trains your vibration.

If I’m focused on what’s going really well in my life, I’m going to feel really good – my vibration will lift. 

If I focus on what’s going really badly in my life, I’m going to feel quite sad and upset – my vibration will drop. 

So focusing on the abundance I do have helps me attract and manifest more money.

It trains my vibration to match the vibration of abundance, and ‘Like Attracts Like’. That’s what Law of Attraction is all about. 

The way that I do this is that I keep an abundance journal. 

At the end of every day, I write in it all the abundance that I got to experience that day – all the abundance that flowed into my life. 

It includes the ideas, inspiration, clients, experiences and money that I had come to me that day. 

It helps me realise how abundant my day really was. As I focus on that, it trains my vibration, and that gathers momentum and makes me magnetic to more. 

I also make sure that I notice and write down the progress that I made and all the tasks that I completed and achieved so that I can feel really good about what I’m doing in my business and what I’m doing in my life. 

I write down all the things that made me feel abundant that day. Just little things like how I got to go for a walk, that I played a game with my daughter or that we went shopping together. 

All these things, all these little snippets of abundance, they all go in that journal. 

This helps me to feel really satisfied and abundant, and I let that dominate my vibration. I let it dominate the way I feel about myself, my life and my business. 

As you do this regularly, you’ll notice that you begin doing it naturally throughout the day. You feel abundant as things happen, you start to notice and celebrate all the little snippets of abundance that are constantly flowing into your life, and it starts to become your new normal.

2. Track your income

This one is all about making sure that I keep noticing my thinking when it comes to my business and income. 

It can be really tricky because apparently we have up to 80,000 thoughts a day. 

But I have a hack for you: All you need to do is track your income. 

The way this looks for me is that every single morning I sit down with my cup of tea and my special notebook, and I track my income. I count all the money that flowed into my bank accounts over the previous 24 hours. 

What this is guaranteed to do is, it’s going to flush up any limiting beliefs, fears and money worries, really damn fast. This will allow you to deal with them. 

Later on, I’ll just sit down and journal anything that pops up, or I’ll use my Money Blockbuster System™. Or any other processes that we use in the Magnetic Money program to shift blocks and limiting beliefs. 

The key is to do this every single day, no excuses because the excuses are money blocks showing up. 

For example, if you catch yourself thinking that you didn’t really make any money in the last 24 hours, and are thinking, ‘What’s the point in sitting down with a notebook?Write that down!

3. Give every single dollar a job to do!

This technique is all about taking care of my money and giving every single dollar a job to do. 

I already track my income daily, and then once a week I allocate my money, split it all up and move it into my various buckets. 

That’s the practice that we do in the Magnetic Money Program. 

Every bucket represents a purpose of money, and every single dollar gets a job to do. This helps you keep your wealth creation on track and ensures that you maintain financial stability. 

It also helps you feel in control and really connected to your money, and that builds confidence. 

Then the other thing that I do is that every couple of weeks, I’ll have a money date with Martin where we sit down, review our money goals and our strategy, and we celebrate our progress. 

I do other things too, but if I have to break it down, these are the three that really make a difference. As I mentioned, each of these represents one of the cornerstones of the magnetic money trifecta.

The key to ensuring you get traction and that you build momentum so you can be manifesting income to grow your business is: 

  • Don’t make this a once-off or ‘sometimes’ process, but an ongoing process. This ensures that you keep that wheel and trifecta spinning, and all the paths supporting one another so that you gather and build momentum. 
  • Know that this gets easier and much more natural over time until it just becomes your new normal. 
  • Make sure that you’re always checking in on all three cornerstones of the magnetic money trifecta. 

This is when manifesting money isn’t just something you do, but it is somebody that you become. 

This is when you become a whole new version of you – the abundant version of you. 

The version of you who knows there’s always plenty of money and is always attracting more money in because you’re consistently tapping into Law of Attraction to build momentum. This means that money can keep flowing in ever-increasing amounts. 

The version of you who clears their money blocks easily and routinely as you go, so that the journey is smooth and easy, and you stop pushing money away all the time. 

The version of you who feels confident and in control of your finances, so you never worry about money again. 

If you’re ready to take this journey with me as your money mentor, then come join us in the Magnetic Money program, because it’s time for you to take that next step and embrace your unlimited potential so you never worry about money again >

How to make Law of Attraction work for you

How to make Law of Attraction work for you

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business. The place where we practice the art and science of Effectology, which is all about marrying the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the hustle.

Today we’re going to talk about how to make Law of Attraction work for you.

So maybe you’ve read a whole lot of books and read a whole lot of blogs and watched a whole lot of videos and watched The Secret on instant auto replay over and over again. I’m told some people did that. Apparently… (Don’t know anyone who would have done such a silly thing, but anyway…)

You learned all you could because you got excited by this idea that we can put it out there, what it is we want, and actually create it. Have a say in what happens to us rather than just being these leaves being tossed in the breeze and life happening to us.

That is a really exciting idea isn’t it? Especially when you’ve been led to believe that life happens and you die.

If you’ve been working on that for a while and you’re getting mixed results maybe sometimes really cool things do happen, maybe sometimes nothing much seems to happen, and maybe at other times something crappy happens and you think “Ugh, how did I do that?!” or “Why did that even happen? Did I have anything to do with it?” then I’m here to tell you two very important things that will help you make Law of Attraction work for you:




The first is that, yep baby, you did create that crappy thing because Law of Attraction is ALWAYS on. There is no time out. There is no off switch. It is always working. This intelligence that surrounds us and we are a part of is constantly responding to us. So there is no time out. What this means is, that you have an opportunity, 24/7, to get feedback and to learn and to keep noticing what’s happening. You get results coming back all the time. Everything in your life is a result of Law of Attraction responding to you. Which means that you can constantly just pay attention, notice what’s going on, and learn from it and improve and really make Law of Attraction start to work for you.

The second thing to recognize is that, what this Law of Attraction responds to is not what you ask for but, what you MEAN. This intelligence, this matrix, this quantum field that we are a part of, it responds to your vibration. It responds to your electromagnetic signal that you are sending out into that universe, the multiverse, whatever name you want to give it. It responds to how you feel and what you truly mean. Not what you say. Not what you write down. Not the affirmations that you’re repeating a thousand time a day. They make absolutely no difference if what you’re actually feeling inside is fear, doubt, and worry.

So, it just comes down to something as simple as, how to make Law of Attraction work for you is to recognize:

Number one, that it is always working.

Number two, that is responding to you and your vibration, to how you feel.

Which means all you need to do is notice what’s going on, notice how you’re feeling, and notice how the universe is responding.

How are you feeling and what’s happening?

That’s it. It is as simple as that.

As you get better and better at noticing what is going on both inside you and outside of you and putting the two together, that is how you start to make Law of Attraction work for you.

If you’d like to get better at making it work for you, particularly in the area of money, then if you haven’t yet watched it, please grab yourself my free Money Manifesting Training.

I’ll pop the link in the description for you. It’s 25-minutes of punchy tips and tricks that will help you manifest more money more easily. There’s even a handy little cheat sheet that you can hold onto to remind you of what you learned in the video training.

Until next time, keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.

Bye for now!

How to generate and build abundance momentum

How to generate and build abundance momentum

Hello, it’s Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business. The place where we practice the art and science of Effectology. Helping you marry the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time the easy way, without all the hustle.

Today we’re going to talk about how to generate and build abundance momentum.

So we don’t just want drips and drabs of abundance and money coming to us, but we really want to get on a roll.

We want it to build and build and become more easy, more effortless, bigger and better.

Because that it was life is all about: It’s constant evolution. You will constantly want the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing and that is a very good thing. Without progress, and without evolution you stagnate, you wither, you die.

This is how life operates. Everything is constantly growing and evolving and your desire will also do the same.

The bigger and more abundant you grow, the more you can spread your message, your service, and the more you can do good in the world.

So, I’m not going to try and talk you through the whole “all the things that come up,” although we are going to talk about it just a little bit in a second.




Now, the first thing you want to do, obviously, is become more magnetic to money. Make it so much easier for that money to flow into your experience. Yes, you’re going to run your business and do all the things that you do, but you want to do things the easier way.

So, what you need to first of all get really good at is aligning with the vibration that money is on – which is the vibration of abundance. So that takes awareness and it takes constant fine tuning, tweaking, and really playing with it and becoming better at noticing where you’re at and getting that feedback from your external world as to whether you’re right on it, or a little bit off it.

It’s kind of like you’re a radio receiver and you’re learning how to really tune yourself to the station that you want to be listening to, because the radio signals, the abundance, it’s all out there. It’s up to you to align with it and make it really easy for that signal to find you.

So that’s number one, but then as you start attracting that money, you want it to stay around, you want to keep that money around and not just have it bounce off.

That’s the second thing you need to really start looking at: “What is it that makes money not stick around so much, that makes it bounce off?” What it is, 99.999999% of the time, basically all the time, is that it is not a match to your current self image. Somewhere there in your unconscious it says “Nope, this is not me, I don’t deserve it, I’m not good enough, I don’t know enough,” whatever the thing is – and it’s a mismatch.

So you find ways to unconsciously get rid of the money. Whether it’s manifesting extra bills, screwing up and getting speeding fines, or just making a bad investment, you’re unconsciously finding ways to get back to what does match the current self image.

You also need to do the work on clearing all those old money blocks. Those old limiting beliefs that aren’t allowing the money to stick around. That is when you can attract the money, it sticks around, and you can start to snowball and rebuild that momentum.

That’s really all the law of attraction is: it is another word for momentum. One thing leads to another similar thing, leads to another similar thing, and it builds and builds and builds.

So, if you want abundance momentum, that actually means that you are just keeping yourself in that beautiful abundance state and allowing the momentum to gather… allowing the law of attraction to kick in and send you more things that match where you are already at, right?

So you want to align yourself with abundance and keep tweaking that and really getting on that vibration, you want to release the blocks that are holding you back, but the last thing you also want to do that’s really important and that a lot of people skip, is become a really confident custodian of that money.

When you are attracting money and it’s sticking around, you’re going to need to know what to do with it. If you lack confidence, if you’re not knowing what to do with it, if you don’t want to look at it, if you don’t want to deal with it, that’s actually a sign that you still have some money blocks and some limiting beliefs and it is a mismatch.

So it’s really important to get your act together and know what to do with your money on the practical level, so that you can build your confidence which increases your alignment and shifts your self image up to the next level and helps you continue to build that momentum.

So it is these three aspects that I call the Magnetic Money Trifecta:

  1. You want to attract more money
  2. You want to keep that money around by releasing the blocks that keep making it ricochet off
  3. You want to help your money grow and multiply by becoming really good at the practical stuff, at being the confident custodian of your money.

Now, where do you even start with all of that?

Well, if you’re not already in my Magnetic Money program, definitely check that out, because that is what we do and we do it in a beautiful and supportive and inspiring group of women.

But the very first step is to start becoming self aware of all three of those prongs on the trifecta. I’ve got a beautiful freebie for you which is my Magnetic Money Tracker. It helps you to start becoming aware of all of those things so that you can start making those adjustments, becoming more self aware, and start getting on a roll to that beautiful abundance momentum. So grab that from the link in the description, and I shall see you next time.

Keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.
