Affirmation Challenge - Day 5

Its been a pretty busy week due to having to do so much clean out for the inspection tomorrow.

It was realy good to get rid of all that clutter!!

So its day 5 of my affirmations challenge and I have been struggling to concentrate what with cleaning all the time and trying to make notes of all the ideas ive had along the way. However, the abundance of information is still forthcoming.

I have managed to keep up with my diary and journal affirmations and my night time ones. But the focus hasn't been as good as it had been. However I have full control over the situation again as of tomorrow after the inspection, it means I will also be working within a non-cluttered home and it means that cleaning will take less time now.

So the abundance still flows in certain areas of my life, and when im back on track i have no doubt that it will all start to flow much easier and quicker. I got a realy great email about a new marketing course, but it was pay by credit card only, so I had to skip it. My acct is looking a little worse for wear due to the kids school stuff and the bills that have started to come in that are no longer in credit.

Im holding strong to the feelings that I had when the bills were coming in with credited amounts due to my focus on ensuring that I was putting money on them constantly. Yet with the increased outgoings for school book, stationary and uniforms I am behind on almost everything. These are the times I find it hard to keep the failth, yet, these are the exact times when the flow of money come to me.

So I know how much I need to ensure we are back in credit with our utilities and to pay off the kids school fees, as well a how much is needed for a number of other areas. I know it will flow to me and I am truely grateful!!

Im tired, but I feel very proud that my family pulled together as a little team to ensure our inspection should be fine. I am also so very very grateful to my partner who has gone above and beyond his usual efforts in cleaning both the inside and outside of our home.

I still have some work to try and get through tonight, I am going to dig realy deep to ensure my to do list is complete before I go to bed.

This blog is one of my escential to dos today and now it is DONE :)

30 day Affirmation Challenge - Intro and Day 3 post

Well, I actually started this affirmations challenge about 3days ago but have only just had the time to sit down and write it up while eating a lunch of curry and rice, mmmm yummy.

So I'm writing some review articles on Squidoo about Law of Attraction tools. I've only published one but was moving on to affirmations when I thought this is probably the area of LOA that I am the most inconsistent.

With that in mind, I thought about the 100day Reality challenge I am doing and thought well why not do a mini challenge using affirmations.

Here's a run down on how I have incorporated affirmations into my daily life.

I wrote a personal affirmation to take though the entire 30days. Its pretty broad but I will explain how I specify it a little later.

My affirmation:

I hereby command my subconscious mind to consistently focus on abundance in my life.

I attract abundance into my life easily and constantly. Abundance of loving relationships & happiness, energy & good health, money & relevant knowledge.

I am truly grateful for the abundance the universe provides on a daily basis.

What I've done with this affirmation is print it out and put it around my house in places that I am bound to see it daily. There's one at my computer desk, one in the bedroom, one in the kitchen.

I've also printed out a wallet size version for the photo part of my wallet to carry with me when I am out.

Each morning I write down the affirmation in my Diary and at night I write it into my journal. I repeat it 5 times at least once a day to myself out loud.

At night before I go to sleep I repeat it 5 times slowly in my head and visualise what each line of the affirmation means to me and I bring in as much emotion as I can with it.

Now, down to the good stuff, what have I managed to manifest over the past 3days since starting this challenge.

1 – I have come up with a great idea that will help people discover and specify what a balanced life looks like for them.

2 – I have been introduced to some people and sites that are really giving me inspiration and information for my “life balance” journey.

3 – We received a letter from our real estate agent to say that they are coming for the normal inspection. This has been a lot of physical work that has required the help of all family members.

4 – Appreciation from my partner for what I am doing for our family. He has been very loving and his words of appreciation are very well received lol.

5 – Communication between me and my family about my online business ideas. Its been hard to actually explain it to them, however, I felt I really needed them to see where this is going for all of us and what benefits they will receive once mummy is up and running and is helping so many other people.

That's it so far, but by far only the start of some amazing manifestations. I have more focus at the moment and the momentum of my mind and actions is truly making this a fun and interesting journey.

Why did I choose to do this for 30days? Well, statistics prove that habits take 30days to take hold in the subconscious mind, so after 30days it wont be so much a challenge but a part of my everyday life.

Now, for those of you who are not familiar with Affirmations here's a link to a great e book that I found was simple and brief. Its in PDF format so you can either read it online or save it and print it out later.

I would really others to join me on this challenge. It would be a great way to create a group consciousness focused on each others affirmation as well as our own. If you would like to take this journey with me, please just let me know in the comments section what your affirmation is, or, if you need help to put together an affirmation I am more than happy to work with you to see what we can come up with.

I will blog here developments or new ideas I have come across with regards to this challenge. I have already found some great new information that I am going to utilise halfway through my 30days.

Please stay in touch and leave me a comment if you feel so inclined to do so :)

I wish for you a life of passion! (ha, this can be looked at as a affirmation hehe :)

Lady of Leisure - almost 4month update

Well, its been a very interesting 4mths since becoming unemployed and I have to admit that I have grown so much since then.

I have learnt that most things online have a science to them when it comes to making money. I've learnt that there are allot of people out there who are willing to help and that the "I scratch your back and you scratch mine" is NOT a bad thing if used for the right reasons.

I've had kids home with me over the holidays and I am so very glad they are now back at school. I haven't done allot of work but that is all about to change. One thing I have learnt is that I am going to be prepared next holidays.

In my personal life, there are still challenges coming up every day. Communication has been lacking which has caused some rift in relationships with the kids but with focus, patients and a more positive attitude I know that we will get there.

In regards to my online portfolio, here is where everything is currently.

E bay
This has been completely taken off my project list. I decided that its more an active income stream than a passive one and right now I want to spend more time building on a passive income.

ABN registration
I gave up doing this all myself. I have incorporated the services of a couple of great guys who run their own financial planning service and are looking after the business side of things. They are also helping me set and achieve my business goals, oh, and they are really really nice guys. They also deal with super so if your looking for financial advise, super roll overs and lost super, feel free to pop them an email at

This is defiantly something that I am yet to restart. I hope to have more time to dedicate to this now the kids are at school.

I have been really lazy with these. Its on my schedule as of next week though, as they say, "you've got to be in it to win it".

Online Business Portfolio
This has been a really big learning experience. One which I may not have been handling in the best way. I seemed to be all over the place especially during the holidays.

The problem is that there is so much out there that one can get easily distracted into other avenues. At the moment I have this blog, my 2 websites and 2 article sites. I am currently doing a online business mastery course which is helping me to understand more about online marketing. Its really a great course for beginners. If you are interested take a look here Internet Business Mastery Academy

I have to do a disclaimer here, sites that I list are not only sites I use but are also sites where I will receive a commission if anyone buys through my links :)

I have also signed up to a number of forums which are proving to be a great way to meet new people.

My twitter has grown from 3 followers to 143 over the last 3 months and I am smiling at that.

I haven't taken on any new projects as yet and I think that the above is going to be my major focus for the next 3mths at least.

Well, that's about all I have right now. If you have any feedback, comments or anything that you'd like to add, please don't hesitate to use the comment box below, that's what its there for lol

I wish you all a life full of passion and purpose
