Manifestation Babe 21 Day Money Challenge – Day 2

Day 2 – Man oh man! Didn’t expect to cry as much as I did in today’s challenge, but wowza! I feel amazing right now!

Grab the book and follow along with me, it’s called Unleash Your Inner Money Babe: Uplevel Your Money Mindset and Manifest $1,000 in 21 Days

Day Two Discoveries

For day 2, the challenge was all about forgiveness. The idea is that you should completely forgive yourself, and everyone and everything from your past that has been negative until now.

Master manifestor Joe Vitale has this amazing practice he does called Ho’oponopono, and I first heard about this practice from Denise Duffield Thomas in her Money Bootcamp. The practice goes like this:

Think about every person who has wronged you and say OUT LOUD:

  • I’m sorry
  • I forgive you
  • Thank you and
  • I love you

For what I consider obvious reasons I’m not going to share my full forgiveness list publicly. However, I do want to acknowledge how much lighter I feel after doing just 30 minutes of forgiveness work. Things that I thought didn’t bother me anymore, came up unexpectedly during this exercise.

I cried a lot more than I planned, but when I was finished I felt so much love and happiness towards myself and everyone on my list. I hope that now I can truly move on from the things that were on my list. Letting them go feels freeing.

I definitely want to work more on forgiveness. I know that by forgiving others and myself I can clear the space in my heart and in my mind that I need to bring my goals and dreams into realities. I want to be clear of negativity as much as possible.

If you’re reading this right now, I love you. I’m sending you love and positive vibes and the hope that all of your dreams come true. I’m rooting for you and I want to see you succeed. here’s to our manifestation of everything we’ve ever wanted!

Manifestation Babe 21 Day Money Challenge – Day 1

Alright, here is DAY 1!!! I’m so excited to unleash my inner money babe. I’m thinking I might just publicly do all my personal development stuffs here on my blog. Big dreams require big action after all. Am I right? So…going forward as I’m working through courses and challenges and stuffs…I’m just going to lay it all out and uplevel my whole LIFE! WOOHOO

Day One Discoveries!

for Day One, Manifestation Babe wanted us to start clearing out the crap. As with many manifestation readings and videos I’ve encountered, decluttering is a great way to clear the space for the new.

She told us to start with just our wallet and the space we spend the most time in. She recognizes we can’t do our entire homes in one day. Thank goodness!

Now that I’ve cleaned out my wallet I feel a little bit better. Then again, I also was a little bit annoyed because I realized that I had coupons in my wallet that I forgot about and let expire. But I guess that just proves that I need to clean out my wallet a little more frequently.

I did make a few other discoveries hiding in my wallet that made me excited. I found a couple of gift cards that I can use to go out to eat with my husband, and I found 4 free movie tickets that we can use for a couple of date nights. So now we just need to schedule some nights out with each other, which I do confess I’m looking forward to. I just LOVE spending time out with my hubby!

I handle most of my finances from my home office. Now that I’ve cleaned that area out, it does feel a little bit more organized. I feel like the spot is a little less chaotic. but, it also looks really bare. Haha!  

I guess that’s to be expected whenever you clean an area out. I do want to clean out the rest of my apartment as well. I definitely want to organize my entire living space as well, and give everything  a place where it goes . Nothing frustrates me more then not being able to find what I’m looking for what I’m looking for it.

The main area that I spend the most time in is my home office. The other space that I spend time in is my living room. And, I did clean a lot of the crap out that was in the living room too, but again I seriously need to declutter a lot more.

I definitely feel lighter, happier, and able to breathe easier when my space is clean and clutter-free. However the thing that frustrates me is the difficulty in maintaining the cleanliness. I find what generally happens is I spend a bunch of time cleaning, and then I don’t stick to putting everything back where it belongs.

What I would definitely like to have happen in my “Rich Babe” mind, is to clean my entire space and then manifest enough money to hire a housekeeper.  That way someone else will be responsible for putting everything away and I can just focus I’m doing the things that I actually want to do.

Of course, I’m pretty sure I’m getting ahead of myself. Therefore, I’ll just focus on these 21 days first and see where they take me.

 

I’m Going to do the Manifestation Babe 21 Day Money Challenge

I’ve decided that I’m Going to do the Manifestation Babe 21 Day Money Challenge! As a means of holding myself accountable I’m going to post all of my workbook stuffs here – public. YIKES! I’m nervous about doing this, but I figure, what the hell? You gotta be bold with the Universe right? So, I’m putting all of this OUT THERE so my dreams can come true! Today is Day 0 and Day 1, but to prevent these posts from getting insanely long, I’m just going to load one day worth of work per post. Without further adieu…here are my day zero answers to the kickASH work book. Oh, and if you want to get the book and follow along with me, it’s called Unleash Your Inner Money Babe: Uplevel Your Money Mindset and Manifest $1,000 in 21 Days

Day Zero – Pre Challenge Questions!

1. Why are you here? What inspired you to start this journey?

What inspired me to start this journey is the fact that I’m frustrated with my current financial situation. Every single time that I start to get into a positive mindset and believe that things are going to change, I go right back into my old way of thinking, my old way of acting, and I sabotage myself every step of the way.

 

2. What are you ready to shift when it comes to your finances?

I’m ready to shift my beliefs about how many has to be difficult. I’m ready to step into the flow and find the path of least resistance.

 

3. What is it that made you say “enough is enough?”

For me, the reality is that I’m not getting any younger, and I don’t want to be facing another year, facing another January and still looking at the same numbers. I want to start seeing my debts go down, and my income and net worth go up.

 

4. On a scale of 1 to 10, how committed are you to radically transforming your money story over the next 21 days?

I feel like I am 100% committed to changing and transforming my money story over the next 21 days. They say it takes 21 days to make a habit, and I would sure like to make earning more income my new habit for 2018.

 

5. How would it feel to manifest an extra $1,000 within the next 21 day period?

It would feel amazing! Bringing in more money and setting the foundation to believe in myself and believe that more income is possible would be even more amazing

 

6. What would you do with the money and why?

To be honest I would use it to pay down my debts. I really want this year to finally be the year that I start getting closer to or even finally becoming being debt-free. I know that having unleveraged debt feels very imprisoning. I want to feel free, and I truly believe the only way for that to happen is for me to finally get my unleveraged debt number to 0.

 

7. When do you plan to sit down, open up each lesson, and do the necessary work required? Commitment is key here! Give an exact time of day.

I think for me the best thing would be to commit to doing it as soon as I finish eating breakfast everyday. I think it would be the best way to start off my day because then I would be thinking about the shift necessary to get into a positive money mindset. And what better way to start each day and to be in a positive money mindset? So yes, I’ll commit to doing it every day right after I eat breakfast.

 

Rich Babe Challenge Day 5

I’m so grateful to Manifestation Babe for the Rich Babe Challenge! I have learned a lot from these last 5 days with her, and am certainly looking forward to exploring everything she taught even deeper!

Here’s what I learned in today’s video:

“Success isn’t found in doing something only once, but rather in small actions that you implement on a daily basis”

3 Rich Babe Habits

1. Checking in on your money daily- “If you’re afraid to hang out with money, then money won’t like to hang out with you either.”
2. Giving money away.
3. Never ending improvement and growth – “When you keep working on yourself and growing yourself your income grows with you.”

Rich Babe Challenge Day 4

LOVING the #RichBabeChallenge with @manifestationbabe sooooooo much! Today is day 4 and it had some awesome nuggets too. Here are my biggest takeaways from today’s video: Get intentional with your money. Make an important decision – set the intention of how much money you want to attract into your life. My intention is to earn $10,000 a month in PROFIT, every single month!

Biggest aha from today – “Release the how, and allow the Universe to do its job” This is always the hardest for me, but I’ll give it a go!

Ask yourself – “Who is that version of myself who already attracts this kind of money into my life?”

“The way to attract endless amounts of money into your life, is to start having fun right now.”

Ask yourself – “What can you do today to bring joy into your life?”

Manifestation Babe writes herself a check each month for the exact amount of money she wants to earn. She suggests doing that for yourself as well and to act as if the money is already on its way. She says, “The Rich babe version of yourself is already within you. She’s already worthy of money, has everything within her to attract the money you’ll be writing on your check, and she’s already abundant and successful.”

To step into that version of yourself that makes the kind of money you want to make you need to ask yourself things like:
– What are her habits?
– What are her thought processes?
– Who is she hanging out with?
– How is she dressed?
– What kind of books is she reading?

Questions like these “will give you the clarity you need to really tune into that Rich Babe version of yourself so that you can become her.”

Rich Babe Challenge Day 3

Rich Babe Challenge Day 3 – This post is short and sweet, but oh man! So many juicy ahas in today’s Rich Babe Challenge video with @manifestationbabe!! Here are my favorites:
“Money is spiritual, and God wants you to be as rich as you can possibly be.” .
.
“God wants you to have as much money as you can possibly get your hands on.”
.
.
“Without you having a big bank account to match your big heart, you do a major disservice to those who are counting on you to be rich.” .
.
“Because money is an amplifier, by you having more of it, it will only amplify your good heart. It’s already in your nature to be a giving, kind person who wants to serve and bless others. When you have a ton of money, you’ll have a ton of it to give to your favorite charities, build homes and schools in Africa, support foundations that speak to you, sponsor Christmases for entire families, and so on.”
.
.
“If you are struggling, then no one wins.”

Rich Babe Challenge Day 2

Posting a little later than intended today, but soooooooo many amazing ahas in Day 2 of the #RichBabeChallenge with @manifestationbabe. “Oftentimes when deciding to make a change in our money realities, most of us make the decision to change our environment or at least depend on our environment to be the difference-maker and are earning potential and what’s in our bank account.”
.
.
.
Lower level change is short-term change.
.
.
.
We must change our thoughts and beliefs for long-term change to really occur. .
You must identify yourself as successful for it to become your reality. .
“What we value in life can directly impact our finances.”
.
.
The most important thing is identity.
.
“Identity is where the magic happens. When we identify ourselves as worthy of money, being already successful, wealthy, and financially abundant, and we see ourselves the way we want the world to see us, we immediately step into this reality. Maybe not instantly, but on an energetic level we skipped all the work And went right into the bulls eye!”
.
I am is the most powerful statement you can make because what comes after the words “I am” defines your identity. With that in mind, I’m declaring to the Universe now: I am wealthy! I am a healthy weight! I am earning $10k a month profit! I am organized! I am successful! I am a six figure a year blogger! I am a homeowner! I am a world traveler 3 months each year! I am a strong and confident business owner! I am loved and lovable! I am the owner of TWO new cars! I am surrounded by friends and family! I am living a life of my wildest dreams!

Rich Babe Challenge Welcome Video and Day 1

I’m Doing the Rich Babe Challenge!

So stoked to dive into the #RichBabeChallenge with @manifestationbabe. Just watched the welcome video, and about to check out video 1 for Day 1!  YAY for making this year a little more exciting already.

Diggin this quote from @manifestationbabe in her welcome video – “Money alone won’t make you happy, but the purpose it can serve in your life – that certainly will.” Love, love, LOVE it! Okay, no really now…onto day one’s video lol 😊

aaaaand Rich Babe Challenge Day 1


I’ve been a student of the Law of Attraction for a while now, and I’m always watching for the lessons I need to hear the most. I think that’s one of the reasons I was drawn to @manifestationbabe and her #RichBabeChallenge. Yes, I am in Money Bootcamp with Denise DT, and yes I’ve read countless books similar to and including “The Secret.” Still, I felt compelled to join Kathrin’s challenge and once again explore my money blocks in hopes of unlocking the door that has been holding me back from becoming a Rich Babe.
.
.
My three favorite quotes from Day One’s video are:
1. You are the creator of your financial reality
2. The key to unlocking your inner Rich Babe is to take a good look at your money story
and
3. Step one of revolutionizing the way you attract money is to gain awareness of your money story.
.
.
I definitely am looking at my own story again, and considering the negative talk in my own head that has held me back from my true potential, and my biggest dreams. I plan to journal on each day’s videos, and I hope to share my progress on my blog if I get the courage to do so. In the meantime, I’ll be thinking about day one’s challenge today, and word vomiting all over my word processor. .
.
Until tomorrow my #bloggyfriends – may your income be high and your hearts be full! Xoxo

 

Today is a Gift – That’s Why it’s Called The Present

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room’s only window

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.

Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats.. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’

Epilogue:

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.

‘Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .’

I don’t know the origin of this story, but I felt compelled to share it with you. If you too were moved by this, share it too! May your days be filled with an abundance of love, joy, hope, wealth, good health and happiness.
