Money Tracking Blog Lazy Manifesting

Hey and Welcome to the Blog! If you're looking to create more freedom in your life and you want to do it in easy, fun, practical ways then you're in the perfect place!

In this Blog Post you're going to learn why you really, REALLY want to start tracking your money today (and if you already have been but need a refresher then this is going to be great for you too!).

Money Tracking is one of the best Lazy Manifesting tools that I teach my Communities and Customers and is one that I've been using myself for over 4 years. Does this mean that I'm perfect at it? No! Does it mean I've done it every single day? Absolutely not! BUT...... I will say this - when I've stopped tracking, the money has stopped showing up too. What you track, you really DO attract!

WHY DOES MONEY TRACKING WORK?

What you track you attract and what you focus on expands. Have you heard of the phrase, ‘where focus goes energy flows’? If you’re focusing on all the money you’re NOT making then that’s what you’ll attract more of. You’ll be even more aware of the debt, the credit card bills, how expensive everything is and how everyone else seems to be making more money than you

However, when you focus on all the money coming IN, that’s what you’ll manifest more of. You’ll be more aware of ALL the income coming into your Bank Account, whether it's from your salary or business, your pension or benefits, tax refunds or gifts or somewhere else entirely. You’ll move from a lack mindset to an abundant one. And that’s the perfect state to be in to manifest even more abundance.

WHEN SHOULD I START TRACKING MY MONEY?

Right now! Don’t wait until you’re making thousands in your Business, get a payrise or pay off your credit card bill to pay attention to what’s coming in. Track now. Seriously, start today. Track every single penny that comes in for you. The more you track the pennies, the more they’ll turn to pounds, then to hundreds, then thousands and so on. 

If you’re reading this thinking ‘Oh I’ll start this on the 1st of the Month, that will be nice and neat’ then I’m going to be honest with you, I’m pretty sure you won’t. I know because I said that every month for about 6 months before finally just getting started. 

Don’t wait for a new month, a new year, until the stars are aligned or it’s a new moon. Start TODAY.

WHAT DO I USE TO TRACK MY MONEY?

What kind of Money Tracker you use will be personal preference. If you work best on your computer or phone then you might want to use something like Google Sheets or an Excel Spreadsheet to track your money. Open a new Sheet, list the days of the month and enter the amount each day. 

If you prefer good old pen and paper however then you might want to use a Notebook or a Bullet Journal as your Money Tracker. Don’t procrastinate by covering it in glitter and sparkles and spending hours decorating it but do find one that resonates with you so you want to actually use it. Keep your Money Tracker Notepad or Bullet Journal on your desk or by your bed, or even next to the kettle if it means you’ll remember to fill it in! It’s important to get into the habit of tracking EVERY SINGLE DAY so do whatever works for you. 

I personally use a Google Sheet now because I can access it from my laptop and my phone so I don't have an excuse not to fill it in but I used to use a sheet of whiteboard paper on my wall (I love this stuff!). I'd use the same sheet for a couple of months and then change it for a fresh one. It was very motivating to see the money coming in every day in big green pen!

WHAT DO I TRACK ON MY MONEY TRACKER?

I know you may be asking, ‘So what do I actually track? Is it just income from my job? Business Income? In which case is it sales or profit? What about my Pension/Child Benefit/other Benefits, does that count?’ My advice, track it all! It ALL counts, it’s ALL money. 

Any money that comes into your life - from the penny you find on the Street to income from your Business/Job - all counts. So does the money you receive as a gift, the money from selling things on Ebay or Facebook Marketplace, money you find in your pocket that you'd forgotten about, tax refunds etc.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF MONEY COMING IN TO TRACK?

Track it anyway. The more you track NOW, the more you'll be able to actually track later. remember - what you track, you attract.

But if you don't want to put a '0' on a day when no money has come in, draw a heart or a star or use something else instead, if this makes you feel more positive about it. But there is the chance that seeing that '0' will motivate you to go hunting for some money to add to your Tracker!

However, you don't just have to track the actual money - track Value too! 

When you’re sent a bunch of flowers in the post or you’re treated to a cup of tea from a friend, note down the (approximate) value of that gift (i.e. £2.99 for a cup of tea and a cookie).  If your tax bill is less than you thought it would be, track the difference in value. If you’re given a discount at the shop on something you were buying anyway, track the difference. 

You might want to use a separate column for value (this is what I do) or use a different colour pen so you can differentiate between the money and value for when you're adding it up at the end of the month.
