More than 25 years ago I had the crazy idea to write down what I wanted in my life instead of what I was going through. I was exhausted with the notion of only using my blank journal as a dumping ground for my raw emotions. While that worked temporarily to FEEL better, simply unloading my thoughts about every challenge was not a long-term solution.
And at that point, I needed solutions. I was a new mom going through a divorce, broken hearted, broke and trying to pull my life together all from my mom’s couch.
Fast forward to today- as I write this I’m sitting in a beautiful home, happily married with two (grown) children who are becoming successful in their own right.
I am a very different woman from the young lady that sat on my mom’s couch many years ago with a pen in hand; ready to rewrite her life story. So how did I escape the dismal circumstances that had pronounced a not-so-bright future for my daughter and I?
Wealth Journaling. This practice has helped me become unstoppable. Every time I’m ready to manifest increase in my personal life or through my business, wealth journaling has saved the day.
Wealth Journaling is simply taking the power of writing things down and giving it a specific focus to manifest financial increase.
Hear me clearly: There is no shortage of money.
There is only a shortage of the proper mindset and the practice of the right manifestation strategies.
So if you are experiencing anything less than abundance it’s time to shift your thinking and take action with manifestation methods that work.
Wondering exactly where to start with this? First of all please note: Wealth journaling is my go-to method when in the process of solving a money challenge or… if I’m simply in the mood to take my finances to the next level.
- I’ve used this principle when I need to meet my sales goals.
- I use wealth journaling when unexpected financial challenges arise.
- I’ve used it even for the little things when I want to upgrade my life.
- I’ve used wealth journaling to write my way from a horrible, heartbreaking situation to a happy, fulfilling life marked by abundance– and you can do the same.
I’m going to show you how you can use this for a specific financial need or for your manifestation of wealth overall.
6 Steps to Manifestation Through Wealth Journaling
Whenever in wealth journaling mode, every morning I write a freestyle morning script of the specific financial outcome I want to manifest in my life.
I always write in present or past tense to stay in a place where what I want is really happening for me. This is a technique to train your brain to do what you want. If you’re writing in the future, then you’ll stay in a state of wanting something to happen vs. writing in the present where it’s currently happening or in the past where it has already happened for you.
For example: if you are expanding your business and need to hire an assistant but don’t quite have the extra funds. You may start by writing something like…
“I’m so grateful and thankful that I found the perfect assistant! Her skills and personality are a wonderful fit for this company and me. I’m able to pay her well with ease and her efforts here immediate bring increase to my bottom line…”
When wealth journaling, remember the more specific you are the better while you are scripting your desired outcome.
Affirmations are intentions to be declared out loud repeatedly for a specific purpose of influencing your subconscious mind with thoughts, feelings and images that are in line with the process of manifesting your dreams and goals …And in this case a specific financial outcome.
Remember, your words are a creative force so use your power.
When wealth journaling ALWAYS create an affirmation to compliment your specific request. Also, please remember there is no need to make it complicated. Affirmations can easily be made in list form (this is my fave). They can even be one sentence or paragraph!
For example, say you’re scripting a specific request to manifest $75,000 in sales in the next 14 days. When creating your wealth affirmation you can pen something like:
“I AM grateful and thankful that I made $75,000 or something better within the next 30 days. “
Write the specifics of your goal. Say I AM with conviction. Also remember to always note and leave room for God to do something better than what you may have had in mind.
Here are notes and samples of a few good things to say in any wealth affirmation for business.
- I Am a millionaire
- I Am a $100,000 (or enter your preferred amount) monthly earner
- I live a luxury life
- Clients call me continuously
- My phone rings all day for sales
- I have million dollar sales
Whatever you end up writing keep in mind that the number one key to powerful affirmations is saying them consistently and with passion (even if you’re still working on your belief).
Here’s a tip if you are struggling with your belief: Write your money goal, create your affirmations and say it out loud and with power until you begin to believe. Faith comes by hearing and hearing good news. Stay consistent and say your affirmations as much as possible until you click into a new level of belief.
One of the best compliments to your wealth scripting is taking time each day to visualize your desired outcome. When in manifestation mode for your finances it is very important to be able to visualize what you’ve scripted in your journal as if you already have it.
Our inner images are directly impacting our actions and triggering certain outcomes in our life all the time. –Whether good or bad.
To create a strong flow of wealth and abundance in your life you have to fight to align your thought pictures with what you really desire, not what you fear or don’t want.
Quick tips of what to do:
- Watch what you see. It effects your imagination as well as your ability to receive.
- Take a prosperity dip get the feel of prosperity.
- Create your vision page in your journal based on the financial goal you’ve written during your wealth journaling session.
The principle language at the subconscious mind is images. When we visualize, we are speaking to and forming our world in our subconscious minds!
To attract more money and abundance, you have to visualize what you want to come about in your financial life!You have to literally see money coming to you. Starting tomorrow morning take 7 days and commit to visualizing your financial goal day and night.
Ask for insight and strategies. Ask God to show you doors, plans, products…specifically ask “Show me the next step. What do I need to do?”
When I’m wealth journaling to increase in my business or personal life, I ask God questions. Usually right before bed I review my goals, write my list of what I’m grateful for then think about all I’ve written while wealth journaling.
Then I ask God questions based on what I want to accomplish right now. I write the complete question in my Success Journal.
Which normally goes something like this: How do I manifest $10,000 for my product packaging this week? Then I write down everything I have and sense about it in my journal.
I capture every intuitive thought then make a “take action” list.
Make it a habit of asking God questions and the answers will come!
Make a plan for what to do on the other side of receiving more money. Note in your journal what you will take care of when the increase you requested has manifested. You can simply write, “This amount of money is for…”
- Clearing debt
- For my savings
- Doing a hobby I enjoy
- Self-Care Pampering
- Charitable giving
An essential part of completing the wealth journaling process is making plans on paper for what you will do with the increase you receive.
Wealthy, happy people have mastered the art of being grateful for what they have while they are on their way to where they want to be. This practice leads to continued success in their lives and business. Why? Gratitude is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked ingredients to high achievement.
In fact, I believe that gratitude is the number one key to living a fulfilled life and attracting new levels of wealth. When you engage in the daily practice of being grateful, it helps you to eliminate negativity and toxic thinking so that you can generate better ideas, more income and attract your dream life!
Keep track of your money and your blessings. If you’re given anything keep note of the monetary amount you saved by receiving the gift. This will cause you to be intentionally grateful.
At the conclusion of each of your wealth journaling sessions list what you are grateful for right now.
