Manifesting Money

NZ Spirit Festival 2018 (206).JPG

Hi friends,

Today I’d love to share with you what I’ve learnt about manifesting money – what it is and why it’s real.

My first experience consciously manifesting money was at the NZ Spirit Festival. I attended a workshop called ‘Tapping into Money’, which taught us the power of tapping on meridians to remove energy blocks and tap into a mindset of abundance, and was surprised to have seemingly manifested money that very night. From the $180 I made from selling concert tickets, to the $50 I made selling my extra festival ticket, to the $500-600 I’d receive later thanks to two photography enquiries in one night, it was excitingly strange and synchronous.

Since then, I’ve learnt plenty on the topic, mostly thanks to Youtube & books. Among the self-help books I’ve read this year, the money-related books I’ve read are Creating Affluence by Deepak Chopra, The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason, and You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero. I’ve also bought Conscious Money by Patricia Aburdene and The $1000 Project by Canna Campbell to add to my reading list!

What stands out to me is that, no matter how practical and tangible people think money is, everything I have read or watched touches on the most important aspect of attracting more money and building wealth: your mindset.

No, manifesting money isn’t praying to the Universe to give you money while you’re sitting around doing nothing, or the opposite – working to the point of burn-out. It’s not simply using Law of Attraction and positive affirmations to say, “I am wealthy” – it’s so much more than that. Here’s the best lessons I’ve personally learnt about manifesting money.

IMG_9146

Hi friends,

It’s only the end of September, yet so far, 2018 has been a very interesting year for me – in life, in love, and in finances. A few years ago, like most people, I worked full-time and had one income, but this year so far, I’ve earned income from several different sources – six to be exact. Today I’ll share with you these six ways I’ve made money this year.

First, let me take you back to last year, 2017 – where I lay the foundations for where I am today. Let’s go in quarters, shall we?

What’s on Your Reverse Bucket List? | My Goals & Dreams

IMG_6463 (3000x2000)

Hi friends,

Have you ever heard of a reverse bucket list? While a bucket list is a list of everything you want to do before you die, a reverse bucket list is simply the opposite. It’s a list of amazing things that you’ve already achieved and experienced.

My kikki.K bucket list book is very dear to my heart. A brief stay in hospital in 2015 inspired me to purchase a timeless journal to write down all my goals, dreams and aspirations – where I want to travel, milestones I want to achieve, concerts I want to go to, and more.

It’s fun to read over it when I’m going through a rut and feeling ‘blah’, sometimes adding to it – but now, I realise that it tends to constantly keep me focused on the future. Future goals. Future plans. Future achievements. Why not also count and celebrate everything I’ve already achieved?

If you’ve got 5 minutes, I invite you to take a moment to be mindful and grateful with me. Here’s my reverse bucket list; I’d love to hear what’s on yours. ❤

Why I Quit The 9-5

Put a value on your time, and start measuring your wealth not in money but in freedom. – The Financial Diet

Hi friends, and welcome to Mindful with Money! 

I created this blog because I’ve always been curious about all things personal finance, as well as minimalism, mindfulness, and conscious living – which are all, of course, holistically connected back to you and your relationship with money. You’ll get to know me really well on this blog, but I thought a good place to start today would be to introduce me – or rather, my life – as a whole, and what it looks like.

I’m currently in my 20’s, living in Auckland, New Zealand. I used to work full-time, but now, I work part time/casually and find myself with what feels like endless amounts of free time. Just a year ago, I was working full-time in the Auckland CBD; the regular 9 to 5 in a corporate office environment, and now I can not see myself doing that again – at least, not for a while.

“But, why?”
