I read Unleash Your Inner Money Babe: Uplevel Your Mindset and Manifest $1,000 in 21 Days by Kathrin Zenkina. Full disclosure: it is extremely difficult for me to read self help books. Giving up while reading it because it gets boring to me.
This book, on the other hand, made it easy for me because it goes day by day and gives you a call to action every single day. This approach helped me stay on track and held me accountable for each day and be a Manifesting Money Babe.
I highly recommend you get your hands on this book so you too can be a Manifesting Money Babe!!
Manifesting Money Babe: Before Getting Started
Unleash Your Inner Money Babe came highly recommended by my friend Shayla, aka Batmom. She was raving about it one day on Twitter. I bookmarked the tweet so that I could remember the name of the book.
I told myself that I was going to get a an iPad so that I could get UYIMB. For a few weeks, I kept an eye on it to monitor the prices. At the time, I was also saving my money so that I could get the book.
Amazon Prime Days rolled around and I saw that the Amazon Fire Tablet was on sale for $49.99. I couldn’t pass up on that offer because I just wanted something to read books on.
Two days later my tablet arrived and the following day I purchased and downloaded the book. Eager to get started, I read day one right away.
Manifesting Money Babe: UYIMB Day 1
I’m going to do my best not to focus so much on the actual calls to action for each day. Instead, I will give you highlights and my personal thoughts throughout this journey.
Day one’s call to action was to clear out your wallet, one area where you deal with money, and one extra space you spend the most time in. EASY PEASY!
The bonus way to promote the flow of energy was to burn some sage in these areas, including in and around your wallet. I wanted to be all in, so, I stopped on the way home and got some sage from our local Sprouts.
If you didn’t already know, sage is known to clear out old, negative and stagnant energy. I purchased the sage that was meant for new beginnings, space clearing, and strength.
Before coming home, I let Cameron know that I would be doing this to the house.
Upon arrival at home, I immediately lit up and began to sage the house with help from Cameron. Making sure to get doorways and the area right outside the door, the entire house and our wallets got saged.
We could already feel the shift of abundance and wealth entering into our lives. Excited and ready to continue on this journey!
Manifesting Money Babe: UYIMB Days 2-5
These next few days gave me a lot of clarity and really made me dig deeper into my feelings and thoughts about money.
I let go of the negative thoughts that crowded my mind about money. Released ideas that were passed on to me by my parents and grandparents.
I felt the metaphoric weight being lifted off of my shoulders as I released these negative thoughts.
Lastly, I confronted and felt the feelings that the $1,000 I was manifesting would bring me.
I was introduced to the idea of making gratitude lists.
Now, I make them every single day. Sometimes more than once a daily. More importantly when I am upset or frustrated with work stuff.
Gratitude lists provide me with a way to keep everything in perspective.
Genuinely, my gratitude lists helped my family when we were unsure of what was going on with my grandfather’s heart. Everything is fine with his heart, thankfully.
Jackie’s Challenge to you: I challenge you to make a gratitude list for a week and see how much more positive your view is on what you have in your life. Let me know of any changes you see in your life!
I had learned to give my money a meaning. To me, this was important because it made it seem more real.
Things become more attainable when you give it a meaning.
I directed my money and gave it orders. This got me thinking. If I gave meaning to my money, what else could I give meaning to?
I believe this was how my grandfather’s catheterization came back with a positive result.
I wrote in my journal every day that I was grateful for my grandfather’s doctor that was going to do the procedure. Also, writing that I was grateful for good health for my entire family.
Manifesting Money Babe: UYIMB Days 6-9
Money comes in the most unexpected ways.
I learned to detach and not worry how the money or anything I wanted to manifest would get to me.
Day 6 became the day that I fully trusted the process and truly let go all of the negative thoughts I had about money.
I threw myself into my work and decided to really engage on my social networks to take my mind off of the negative money thoughts that crowded my brain for so long.
Blogging has slowly become my way of detaching from my day to day life and truly be myself. For so long, I struggled with self confidence and felt like I had no purpose.
The blogging community and blogging in general have helped me to break out of my shell and use my voice to help others.
The Law of Attraction
The most important thing for this whole process to completing this process successfully had to be removing the negative thoughts.
Cameron introduced me a while ago to The Secret and the Law of Attraction. I hindered my own growth by not believing him that it actually works!
For those that don’t know, the law of attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. By focusing on negative thoughts, negative things are bound to happen to you.
Jackie’s Challenge to you: Starting thinking of all of the the negative things that effect you on a daily basis and get rid of them! Instead, replace the negative thoughts with positive beneficial ones.
Feeling like a kid again, I found money in places I would have never thought! I found money on the ground in Whole Foods, in the parking lot, my brother even sent me an article from CNN that gave me $125!!!
I was on a treasure hunt and I thanked the universe for every penny, nickel, and dime. The universe showed me that money is all around me and can be be found everywhere.
The biggest takeaway from Unleash Your Inner Money Babe, beside making gratitude lists, had to be my daily affirmations.
Daily affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
I chose 4 affirmations that I would repeat daily and made sure to truly feel each of the affirmations.
My affirmations were, “Money is all around me. I find money everywhere. It flows effortlessly into my life on a daily basis. I deserve to be highly paid for the work that I do. I am open and ready to receive all the wealth life offers me. Money is attracted to me and finds its way into my life quickly and easily.”
I found out that there were affirmation apps out there that helped by setting daily reminders to practice your affirmations. The app that I downloaded is called ThinkUp.
ThinkUp is a free app that allows you to add three affirmations and sets reminders to practice these affirmations throughout the day.
Features included in the app were voice recording your affirmations, browsing affirmations recommended by top experts to add to your list, setting music to your affirmations.
They offer a premium version that allows you to record unlimited affirmations, record longer affirmations, access all of ThinkUp’s music or upload personal music, and much more.
For me, this app was easy to use and I recommend that you get it and start affirming things in your life.
Jackie’s challenge to you: Download the ThinkUp app or program three affirmations in your phone to go off at different times of the day. When reading the affirmations, really allow yourself to feel the emotions of each affirmation and truly believe it. The more confidence behind each affirmation, the more likely it will come true.
Manifesting Money Babe: Days 10-13
Another huge takeaway that I learned to implement was daily meditation.
I never meditated before now, but I do not see myself not meditating ever again!
Meditation has become a vital part of my daily life. Seriously!! First thing in the morning, meditation got turned on.
I have felt so relaxed and ready to conquer the day because of my morning meditation sessions.
I’m still fairly new at meditation so if you have any suggestions on apps or Youtube videos, send them my way! I’m willing to try any of it!
I was always a huge advocate for creating vision boards and visualizing what you want to achieve.
I relied heavily on creating these vision boards with Pinterest or physically cutting out things I wanted from magazines.
Now, I rely heavily on visualizing what I want to manifest and essentially daydreaming. This has been a great way to empower myself and to grow more attached to what I want to manifest.
Jackie’s challenge to you: Create a vision board with all of your hopes, dreams, and wishes of take time time out of your day to daydream for 10 minutes. Truly let yourself feel the feelings of how it would feel to live those truths that you are trying to manifest.
I learned how to change my perspective and instead of using negative limiting affirmations, use positive affirmations for what I want to manifest.
Negative phrases include “I can’t afford___________” or “That’s too expensive.” Positive phrases include “I can afford___________” or “Wow, everything is so cheap!”
Lastly, I learned to listen to my gut.
It took me a few days to really listen to what my gut was saying to me and it didn’t hit me until I got to probably around day 14. When I finally allowed myself to listen to my gut, I discovered that I could do so much more than I was allowing myself to do.
I made a list of everything I wanted to do going forward with my blog and I have enjoyed creating and finding my purpose as a blogger.
Manifesting Money Babe: Days 14-17
Nearing the home stretch, I felt myself becoming more and more confident in myself and that this money would come into my life.
I owned my money spending habits and kept track of when the automatic withdrawals would come out. I budgeted my weekly expenses.
Now, I feel like am a money manifesting machine, keeping track of where it’s going and giving thanks for everything as I go.
After tracking my money and staying on top of it, I started to really notice good things coming into my life.
I was taken out for lunch by one of the attorney’s in my office. Free wine fell into my life. I found money on the ground. I had my lunch paid for again.
All of this was the universe’s way of telling me that I was on the right path.
One of the biggest takeaways from these few days was recognizing your value and adding value to yourself.
This was something that I struggled with for so long. Ever since I was rejected by 11 different law schools, my self esteem had been pretty down. I didn’t value myself or what I had accomplished.
This book really opened my eyes to the possibility of being more open and honest with myself and truly seeing myself as valuable.
Jackie’s challenge to you: Write down 10 things that you value about yourself. Some examples include, graduating college, being a single mother, or even getting out of bed this morning. Be creative and truly dig deep.
Lastly, UYIMB taught me the 8 step process to squashing any limiting belief. This method truly helped get rid of the limiting beliefs that hold us back from ourselves.
Manifesting Money Babe: Days 18-21
These last few days were by far my favorite for the simple fact that I felt the shift and knew that my breakthrough was on its way. I had never felt as powerful and able to fulfill every one of my hopes and dreams than I did the last 4 days of this journey.
I mapped out my exact perfect day. Literally from the moment I opened my eyes, to the moment I closed them. Now, I believe that this is something that I can do on the regular.
It was awesome and I so enjoyed just putting my dreams on paper and visualize exactly what I wanted to achieve.
I thanked people in my life for things that they had done for me or continue to do for me.
I thanked the Universe for everything that it brought into my life including the $2,000 that I manifested.
