Thoughts of wanting, needing, and wishing we had more money is one of the most dominant thoughts we will ever have in our lifetime. For some, money will come easily and for others, it will seem a constant struggle. The question then is: Why is it that money just seems to, simply, flow to some people? And, What can you do so that the same happens to you? Here is a little secret. For those of us find attracting more money a struggle, it’s because of the way you think and feel about money. The trouble is many of us don’t allow the help of the Universe to give us what we want. If we did, we would likely have what we want by now. For example, plenty of money in the bank, the envious home, and luxury sports cars.
So what is stopping us? More specifically, what is stopping you from getting what you want? A simple question, right? The problem is, for many people, it is a question that is complicated to answer. See, what many people don’t know is that manifesting money is not rocket science. Neither is it fictional. Learning how to manifest money is, in fact, easy, and anyone can do it. To show you how in this post we address those very questions and provide a comprehensive list of how You can manifest money into your life. Ready?
There are two parts to manifesting money into your life. The first is to learn how to manifest money into your life. Here you will learn 21 how-to ways of manifesting more money into your life that work. It will be up to you, however, to adopt these ideologies and methodologies in a way that works best for you. The second part is to Form a Habit. Which is about consistently applying the techniques that work for you. That is, of course, once you believe and understand how the process works. By forming a daily habit of using these techniques, you will increase your chances of manifesting the wealth you desire. Remember, truly materializing money into your life requires much more than wishful thinking. Otherwise, we would all be rich! So remember, it’s important to keep in mind that to successfully manifest money a shift in thinking is required. A shift that needs to involve transforming the paradigm that is preventing you from attracting money into your life.
The Two “Musts”
Fundamentally, there are two requirements needed in order for manifestation and the law of attraction to work. They are:
- Changing your core belief structures.
- Transforming your attitude towards money.
For manifestation to work, you must do two things. (1) Believe in the manifestation process. That you are the master of your destiny and the creator of your world. (2) Change your Attitude towards money to one that attracts money into your life. More on this later. For now, keep in mind these requirements when you pick and choose from the 21 ways on how to manifest money below. As you go through the list, try to adopt as many of the ways into your life as you can. The more you can do this and make them part of your life, the more you are putting the law of attraction to work for you.
How to Manifest Money
1. Declare. What and When.
To manifest any amount of money into your life, you must first and foremost know exactly how much you want. We all want ‘more’ money. But, to manifest it, we must define how much ‘more’ is. Is it $1,000? $10,00? or $100,000? Make it $1,000,000 if you want. Whatever it is, be absolutely clear about the specific number in your mind. For instance, don’t come up with something like “I want 20% more money.” Rather come up with a definitive number. For example, say something like; “I want to have $10,000 in my bank account.” Why come up with a specific amount? Because we manifest and attract what we focus on. By knowing what your specific amount is, you give yourself a focal point. And, by having this focus point you signal to the Universe how much you are open to receiving. Try it now by writing down your answer to the following question.
|How much money do I want?|
The second important part is to stamp a date on when. Just like coming up with the amount you wish to manifest, state the exact date. The day you want to have the money by. Why set a date? For two reasons. One, it gives you a day in the future to aim towards. And, two, it signals to the Universe when you intend to have the money by. As with defining the amount of money you want, make it a specific date. Meaning, avoid stating “A year from now” or “In six months time.” Rather be specific and make a statement like “By the 1st of December 2020.” Try it now. Write your answer to the following question.
|When do I want it?|
If you have answered the two questions above, you have completed the first step to manifesting the money you desire. You should now have a statement like: “I want $100,000 in my bank by December 1st, 2020.” Whatever it is for you, write it down and put it someplace where you will see it every day. Remember, the key is to be clear and specific. The more clear and specific you are, the more it will inspire positivity.
When declaring the amount of money you want to manifest also keep in mind to be realistic—but not too limiting. Which means—dream big, but balance it with realism. For example, if your statement reads something like: “I want $1,000,000 by February 28 this year,” and you are writing it on the February the 1st, it may be too unrealistic. If this is all quite new to you, I would suggest to start with something small and then work up to larger amounts.
2. Believe. With Your Heart and Mind.
Belief is a powerful force that seemingly has no limitations. It is the invisible force within that either make us or break us. We all have beliefs that hold us back from something, but we can also change our beliefs to empower us, propel us forward, and give us hope. Without believing, what chance do we have at achieving? Just believing, however, isn’t enough. The key to a belief is to believe with all your heart and mind. This means, to manifest the money you want, you must believe you will obtain it. To develop and strengthen your belief ask yourself:
- “What makes me believe I can obtain this money?”
- “What are the limiting beliefs I have about money I need to get rid of?”
- “Do I believe I can have this money?”
Take the time to answer the questions above. If you came up with sound reasons why you believe you can obtain the money you want, identified your limiting beliefs about money, and completed with a resounding Yes, then you should now feel good about going forward and believing in the money you want to have in your life. If you believe entirely and there is no resistance, you are allowing the law of attraction to work for you. Believing is having faith. Whether it be in yourself, others, the process, and the divine powers that be. When you believe, the vibrations you send out will ultimately attract money in ways you probably hadn’t thought of. If you feel you do not fully believe, find a way to believe that works for you. When you feel undeserving of money or wealth, take a look in the mirror and dig deep. Try to figure out why your limiting belief is preventing you from achieving your goals. Common causes of feeling undeserving include;
- Low self-esteem and self-faith
- Taking negative criticism to heart
If you have trouble with believing, find ways to figure out your source of disbelief or limiting belief. Only then, will you be able to begin to effectively overcome it and see the possibilities.
3. Forge an Attitude of Gratitude.
Too often we take the gift of life for granted. At least I know I’ve been guilty of it. A big part of which is due to what has happened in the last century. Things like instant internet, fast food, and next day delivery have radically changed our expectations of how life should be. As a result, we flip out when Netflix buffers. We become impatient when we have to wait for our burger and fries. And, we complain when our package doesn’t arrive the next day. Our expectations of how things should be have risen to new heights that we forget to think about how lucky we are and what matters to us. In a world where expectations are higher than ever, it has never been more important to stop. Take an uninterrupted moment. And just be Thankful! To be thankful for everything that is, rather than to dwell on something that is not.
As great human beings, we are, we are good at complaining about how much money we don’t have. How often, however, do we express gratitude for the money we do have? Whether it’s very little or none at all, starting now, be thankful for the money you have in your life. Then, go a step further and be grateful for the money that you will have. Better yet, express your gratitude in writing. Engage in this exercise every day to increase your positive energy about money. The more you think this way about money the more you are allowing money to manifest into your life.
Being grateful entails celebrating any money you make and not dismissing any opportunity as too little. One of the great benefits of practicing gratitude is that it helps you to let go of any fear or anxiety you might be feeling about not having enough. Keep in mind that fear and anxiety are the complete opposite of the positive feelings that allow abundance into your life. When fearful, you become stressed and anxious which is not in vibrational alignment of manifesting.
4. Watch Your Language!
What type of language do you use when it comes to money? Do you say things like: “I’ll never have enough money to buy that.” Or, “I don’t have the money to afford it.” Or, “Why is it so difficult to make money these days.” If you use such statements to pronounce your financial situation then, it’s time to learn a new language. We may not realize it but, the words we use come from how we think about money. The more we speak the language of improbability and scarcity, the more negative we feel about money. So, when it comes to money, it is important to be mindful of the language you use.
How do you change your language of money? Start with your Mindset. Instead of letting your negative thoughts run on autopilot, find ways to think positively about money (i.e., practice gratitude). When you are in control and are aware of your thoughts, you will be more cognizant of the language you use around money. Then, rather than pronounce such things with “I can’t” and “I’ll never” use the language of possibility and abundance. For example, use phrases like: “I am deserving of more money.” “Money is manifested easily and effortlessly into my life.” And, “There is more than enough money out there for me.” Whichever phrases you use, just make sure the language is positive, hopeful, and inspiring. Any words you use which hold you back—take it out.
Tip: To help change your money language, make a list of positive money affirmations and recite them to yourself daily. Choose assertions about money that reflect something you actually believe. To get you started, here are some positive money affirmations you can use:
- I am a money magnet
- I attract money into my life easily and effortlessly
- I am good with money
- I attract wealth and prosperity
- I will find a way to afford it
- My actions create wealth
- There is more than enough money out there for me
5. Be Generous With Money.
The act of giving money is a powerful way to manifest more of it. As the old adage goes: “The more you give, the more you get.” Therefore, in the area of finances, if you want to receive money—you need to give money. It may seem counter-intuitive and not make any sense but it works. It is how the Law of Giving works. A Universal law which has been around for as long as the Law of Attraction. In fact, there are many verses in the Bible which reflect upon this very law. For instance, the verse, “Give, and it will be given back to you” (Luke 6:38). The idea of being generous and giving money is to change your vibration about money. Therefore, the act of giving money does two important things. Firstly, it helps you to adopt an abundance mindset by telling yourself you have enough and there is enough out there. Secondly, it signals to the Universe that you are open to receiving more money.
For this to work for you, it is important to adopt a habit of tithing regularly. Start with a small amount if you want. Just make sure you do it on a regular basis. Remember, by performing random acts of kindness, you send out positive energy. And, because like attracts like, the positive energy you send out is bound to come back to you. Also, when giving give without any expectation of receiving. For example, don’t give a person or a cause $20 and expect something in return. Give because you want to genuinely help. The countless times I have given money, with no expectation of anything in return, and having miraculous things happen to me is truly astounding. And I don’t think I’m a special case. I’ve seen it happen to many other people meaning it can happen to you too!
Regardless of what you do or don’t earn, here’s my challenge to you. Decide on a charity that you believe in. Then, in the next browser tab, you open, go directly to the website of that charity. Sign up to their program and commit to contributing a certain amount every month.
Support a Cause
A great way to give is to get involved with a charitable cause. Choose a cause you believe in and find a way to contribute. For instance, I’ve been involved with the work World Vision are doing for many years and am a regular child sponsor. Because of the way World Vision operates and the work they do to help communities in need, I believe in what they are doing and hope to sponsor more children in the future. As a way to contribute, I’ve set up automatic monthly recurring payments that go directly to the children and communities I sponsor. My involvement, however, doesn’t mean I expect anything in return. Rather, I do it because I like to see the progress the children and the communities make through my contributions. The point is, whatever your charity is, Give. Be generous with your money. By doing this, you are showing and proving to the Universe that you are willing to share with those who don’t have.
6. Be Inspired by Other People’s Abundance.
Have you ever been inspired by somebody you met or someone you watched who has the riches you desire? I know I have. I was once invited to a friend of a friends home situated near a beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The driveway from the stone gate to the front entrance was surrounded by gardens which looked as if they were manicured daily. The architecture of the house was modern, stylish, and a sight most people would envy. You could see and feel the high-quality expensive fixtures and materials used. The home was filled with beautiful furniture and state of the art technology. Not to mention, the surrounding views looking out to the ocean were breathtaking. By the time I left, I remember saying to myself “One day, I want to live in a home just like that.” It was the kind of place you would never forget visiting. The kind of home that would inspire and ignite your motivation.
Have you ever experienced moments like this? Where you felt inspired by the possibilities of one day living in your dream home? Being inspired by other people’s abundance and achievements is an excellent way to generate the positive vibrations that manifest money. Sadly, we live in a world riddled with more criticism and jealousy than inspiration and encouragement. So it is easy to lose our positive energy quickly. Especially when it comes to money. Reality can be harsh at times so don’t ever let anyone or anything beat down what inspires you. Manifest money into your life by ridding yourself of any jealousy or harmful thoughts. Instead, celebrate and be inspired by those who have what you want and desire. Who knows, it may be the motivational push you need to believe in yourself and take full advantage of all the opportunities you have. Go out there. Watch, listen and read the stories of people who inspire you.
7. Create a Vision Board.
If you are not already familiar with what a Vision Board is, it is essentially a collection of images. Cutouts from magazines or taken from the internet that represent the things you want to have, be, and do. For example, if having a Lamborghini Aventador or the Louis Vuitton North South tote is something you want, add a picture of it to your vision board. In addition to things, you can also add pictures of the type of person you want to attract into your life. You could also add pictures of people who represent and resemble the type of person you want to become. If exploring the world is something high on your to-do list, by all means, add those too. For example, if soaking up Santorini, Greece is something you want to do, include pictures of the mini-archipelago to your vision board. Whether it be getting up close and personal with Lemurs in Madagascar, experiencing Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, or hiking the Inca trails to Machu Picchu, Peru, add pictures that represent those places you want to visit and things you want to experience.
The purpose of a vision board is to serve as a visual reminder of the things you want to manifest. To manifest money, create a vision board of images that represent what money means to you. Would it mean financial independence? Would it mean freedom? Or, would it mean giving you more time to spend with your family? Also, think about what the money you desire represents to you. Is it the dream home, having the latest technology, and the amazing life experiences. Whatever money means to you, build up your vision board of images that represent all the things the money you desire would look like to you.
Creating Your Vision Board
To create your vision board, you can either do this online (virtually) or on a wall (physically). Pinterest is a great tool to use if you want to create a virtual board. Pinterest also has a handy app that makes it easy to add and view your board(s) wherever you go. If you prefer, an actual board or wall of images works too. Whether it be in your office, bedroom, or any other place you can regularly see it. The key is to collect images that accurately represent what you deem as wealth or riches. The possessions or experiences you think money will give you. Your vision board should also help to define how you will take advantage of your opportunities. According to Huffington Post contributor Elizabeth Rider, the images you add to your vision board should be ones that motivate and inspire you.
8. Act as if You Already Have it.
Imagine for a moment you already have the money you want. It is in your possession and it is yours to do whatever you want with it. How would it affect your life? Is there anything you would do differently? What would your morning routine look like? How does knowing you have it make you feel? Does it make you feel more energized? Do you sit/stand a bit taller? Do you go about your day with a cheeky grin? Is there swagger in your strides? The act of behaving as if you already have what you want is often enough to warrant the feelings you would have as if you actually had it. Put another way, the more you feel like you have what you want, the more likely you will manifest it.
As the late Mary Kay Ash once said, “Fake it till you make it.” Act and behave as if you already have the amount of money you’ve declared. Be as if you already have it in your possession. Convince yourself and the Universe that it is yours. Right now, go to the mirror and have a good look at what you are wearing. Does the person in the mirror look like the kind of person who possesses the amount of money they desire? Does the person you’re looking back at, need to change their look—even just a little bit? Now I’m not suggesting you need to dress exquisitely when going to the supermarket. But, I do suggest to dress “up”—just a little bit. Even when you don’t think it matters.
“Dress for success” is an old adage, I know. But, there is truth to this simple suggestion. Think about it. All things being equal, who would likely get the position for CEO of a world-class bank? The candidate who turns up in a business suit looking well groomed? Or the person who turns up in a tracksuit who hasn’t showered in a week, and looks like they just got out of bed?
Yes, appearance may matter to others but more importantly it should matter to you. Why give a damn, you might ask? Because improving your appearance helps to boost confidence, increase your sense of responsibility, and make a statement about who you are. Try it. Before you step out into the world, up your dress game. You might be amazed at how much more confident and energetic you will feel by simply dressing yourself up. Even if it is to do ordinary things like grocery shopping. The idea behind this is called Power Dressing. It’s an effective technique to raise your vibration. It signals to the Universe that you are willing to manifest money and go places.
9. Allow Money into Your Life.
Create space in your life to allow money to enter it. By creating space for the money you want, it sends a positive message to the Universe that you are a willing receiver. That there is room in your life for more money. And, that there is nothing blocking money from coming your way. If your life is cluttered and crammed with junk, metaphorically speaking, it means you have little room to allow for more to enter your life.
One way to allow money into your life is to clean out and simplify your physical space. For example, declutter your purse or wallet of anything you don’t need. Throw away any expired cards or file away old receipts to clear any lifeless and negative energy. Do the same for anywhere else you keep your money. Get rid of any old stuff you don’t use anymore. Go through your attic, basement, garage or any place in-between and remove or sell anything you don’t need. You will be surprised by what you have accumulated. Most of the time people hold onto things they collect because they are afraid they won’t, one day, have the money to buy, replace, or upgrade. If they had the money, however, they wouldn’t think and feel this way.
Another way to allow more money into your life is to use allowing statements. Below are some examples you can use to help open your life to allowing the flow of more money enter it. Rehearse these in your head or out loud as you get ready for your day, during your run, when on your commute, or while you are meditating. The positive affirmations will help to create emotional and spiritual space and dissolve any resistance you have to allowing the amount of money you desire into your life.
- I openly allow the flow of money into my life.
- I am worthy and deserving of the money I wish to have.
- My actions yield to the Universe that I am open to receiving more money.
Show positivity by getting rid of any material possessions that are not of use to you. Create space, emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Practice the art of decluttering and just watch how much more abundant you will feel.
10. Go for a Test Drive.
My brother was once interested in buying a new car for himself. The problem was, he would tell me he couldn’t afford what he wanted. So, one day, when I went to pick up my new car, I took him with me. I knew the dealership had the kind of car he wanted. He just needed to get in one to feel what it was like. When we got there, my brother and I took my new car out for a final test drive. As we return I say to him, I’ll be a while sorting out the paperwork for this so why don’t you take a few cars for a test drive? Sure enough, as I look out the office window, he’s pulling out on to the road in a Holden Commodore V8. The car he wants. By the time the salesperson and I are done with taking delivery, my brother arrives back. While still in the driver’s seat with the distinctive sound of the V8 engine throbbing, he says “Jump in!”
When we got back from the drive, we discussed with the dealership what his options were. On the way home all he could think about was how he could make it happen. How he could do it, and make that car his. Well, guess what? It didn’t happen right away but, a few weeks later, he got the car he wanted. Not the one he test drove that day but one that was of the same make and model. Rather than Nitrate Silver, he found one in Phantom Black with all the bells and whistles. To say he was thrilled with his new car would be an understatement because, for him, it was a dream come true. So, what happened? Well, over the following weeks, he only thought of the possibilities. Before, his thoughts were: “I can’t afford it”, “I couldn’t do it”, and “now is not the right time.” After the test drive, however, his thoughts changed. He saw the opportunity, the possibility and began to think: “How can I do it?” and “How could I make it happen?” The feeling of the test drive compelled him to change his thinking and, therefore, change his vibration. He took positive action and, got what he wanted.
The point is, whatever you want your money to do or buy for you go out there and test drive it. It doesn’t have to be a car. Just go out there and try on that dress, have a play with that digital camera, and go talk to a travel agent about the places you want to visit. I guarantee if those actions can inspire you enough to get you thinking about how—money will find its way to you.
11. Track Your Spending Habits.
How often do you look at what money goes in, and what money comes out? Do you even do it at all? If you already keep a track of your spending, brilliant! If not, how do you know whether or not you are spending more than what you are earning? Starting today, if you don’t already, I encourage you to take a close look at your finances. Examine your spending habits and determine whether you are being good with money, or not. If you constantly end up with more month at the end of your money, then you need to make a change in your spending habits. Showing you are responsible with money is a way to positively change your vibration, to attract more of it into your life. Not sure whether you are being responsible enough with money? Take this quick questionnaire.
On the scale below, rate yourself on the following statements.
1 = Strongly disagree
2 = Disagree
3 = Not sure
4 = Agree
5 = Strongly agree
- I am always responsible with money.
- Others see me as being responsible with money.
- I keep a track of my spending habits.
- I don’t spend more than I have.
- I feel good about how I manage my money.
Rated yourself on all the questions above? Great. Now add up your score. If you scored between 20-30 it means you are doing good with money. If you scored between 5-19 then I encourage you to take the 21-day challenge.
The 21 Day Challenge.
Serious about manifesting more money into your life? Here’s my challenge to you. For the next 21 days, keep a record of every cent you accumulate. Whether it’s earned, given to you, found, whatever. Secondly, keep a record of every penny spent, given away, etc. I find using spreadsheet applications like Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel works well. If, however, you prefer to use pen and paper that’s fine too. Just do what works for you. The purpose of this exercise is two-fold. (1) To make you become aware of where your money is coming from and where it is going to. And, (2) encourage you to adopt better spending habits so you feel more positive about money.
It goes without saying: when you can spend money more effectively, you become intrinsically motivated to make more. So I encourage you to take on this challenge. Carry around a notebook if you have to. Note down all the money you earn and all the money you spend. By the end of the 21 days, you should have a clear idea of where you can better with your money. According to the law of attraction, when you can spend wisely, you attract more. So spend your money wisely and make optimum use of it. Show that you can be a good manager of money.
12. Keep a Journal.
This is to write down everything you want when it comes to finances. Things like your thoughts, your progress, what you’ve seen, and what you’ve heard about money. When we have money goals, it’s easy to forget how much we want. Why we want it. How we plan to acquire it. And, what we need to be doing to get it. The reality is, it’s easy to get sidetracked and lose focus. This is why keeping a journal is important. Your journal entries don’t have to be too long. All they need to be is a few sentences daily of anything related to money. If you don’t know what to write, write down your thoughts and answers to the questions below.
- What did I do today to get closer to manifesting the money I desire?
- How can I do better tomorrow to manifest the money I want?
- What other things can I do to attract the money I want?
- What money generating opportunities should I explore?
- How can I better manage my money?
As with the challenge to keep track of your finances for 21 days I encourage you to do the same for journaling. Keep this up as a daily habit and it will not only help you to be aware of all the money around you but also provide you with a safe avenue to vent out all the negativity so that you begin or end every day positive and refreshed.
13. Let Go of the Guilt.
As humans, the fear of success is real. So real, in fact, that we don’t even know when we are limiting ourselves and sabotaging our own achievements. Likewise, when it comes to money, it’s no different. We limit ourselves from the potential of how much we can make, generate, and accumulate. It may sound outlandish but it’s true. But, what makes this strange phenomenon occur? Guilt. It’s a feeling which transpires when we peer into the foreseeable future. When we see what could be, we become clueless as to how we will handle it all.
It is common to fear the guilt of having more money. Whether we know it or not. Consciously or unconsciously. Deep down, we fear the guilt of having more than others around us. The bigger house, new cars, and all the travel experiences money can buy. We fear that an abundance of money will make people think we are vain and that we are better than others. The fear overpowers the prospect of happiness and satisfaction that we limit and sabotage ourselves. We compare what having more money would be like against what others around us have. As a result, a part of us that says, “I don’t want to bear the guilt, things are fine just the way they are.”
We may not realize it at the time but, seemingly small statements like these can have a tremendously negative impact on the manifestation process. Such thoughts impose barriers and blockages which affects your vibrations. How do you prevent guilt from happening? Learn to let go of it. We all have the choice to want more. The difference is, what are you going to do about it? You shouldn’t feel guilty about having goals and ambitions. If you are willing to do whatever it takes to get what you want, you deserve every inch of success.
The more you let guilt get the better of you, the less likely you will manifest what you truly want. If you have an element of guilt about money within you, try the following exercise. List down all the positive aspects of what having the money you desire would mean to you.
- Having a sense of achievement.
- Increased self-esteem.
- Taking good care of the family.
- Giving to charity.
- Helping out friends who are in need.
- Ability to travel and explore the world.
- Buying the things you want and need.
14. Surround Yourself with the Right People.
Network and surround yourself with supportive people. Choose to be around friends, family, colleagues, or similar interest groups who will keep you on track. As American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said; “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Meaning, how you think, feel, behave, act and react is an average of the people closest to you. The same can be true about your lifestyle and finances. For instance, if the people around are constantly negative around money, it affects you and your manifestations. If they constantly complain about not having enough, spend their money carelessly, and accumulate debt then it may be time to evaluate your circle of influence.
The people you surround yourself can either help make you or help break you. So be mindful of the people you chose to spend your time with. Choose to surround yourself with positive like minded people who support your pursuits. Reflect upon the people you spend time with and ask yourself:”Are these the right people for me?” In order to manifest the money you want, should you be spending time with these people? Is it time to face the music? If the people you associate with most aren’t aligned and don’t support your money goals, then it may be time to surround yourself with other people who do.
Sometimes, this might mean you have to spend less time or disassociate yourself completely from the people you love and enjoy. It can be a difficult decision to make. But, keep this in mind. If they don’t have the same goals and aspirations as you do, they are likely to hinder your progress. Decide to remove yourself from others who are negative and who discourage you from pursuing your money goals. Keeping yourself around those types of people will only derail the manifestation process. On a more positive note, be hopeful and seek out people who will help you keep on track with manifestation lifestyle. Keep yourself open-minded to meeting positive people. Others, just like you, who trust the process and are willing to give you helpful money tips and advice.
15. Create Hope.
Hope is having a feeling of optimism. A feeling of expectancy that what we want to happen—will happen! Even though we don’t exactly know when, where, or how it will happen. What is a way you can build hope when it comes to money? Write yourself a cheque. Not just any imaginary cheque, but an actual paper cheque you can keep in your wallet. Something tangible you can see and feel every day. It doesn’t have to be written from an actual checkbook so long as it is real to you. There are a number of free blank cheque templates or an online cheque generator you can use to write and print yourself a cheque. People use this technique to build hope, and it works. Take, for example, the story of actor and comedian Jim Carrey.
Laughing His Way to the Bank.
Once a struggling comedian trying to make ends meet, Jim Carrey had a dream of becoming an entertainer on the big scene. One night, in 1990, after being booed off stage during a mic session at a famous Los Angeles nightclub, Jim hit rock bottom. His self-esteem crushed. That night, Jim was about ready to give up on his dream of becoming a professional entertainer. On that devastating night, Jim sat by himself at the top of Mulholland Drive and wrote himself an imaginary check to the order of Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) and labeled it “For acting services rendered.” That cheque served a reminder for him to keep hoping despite how difficult things were. Flash-forward to 1995 (five years later) and his contract price had risen to Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000). Double what he had once written himself a cheque for.
Jim Carrey made it in an industry that chews and spits out even the most talented people. And he did it by not giving up on hope. So, just like Jim, find a way to create hope. Try writing yourself a cheque and see if it fuels your motivation. Carry it with you everywhere you go and let it remind you of why you are doing what you need to do.
16. Pray Daily.
Manifesting money through the act of praying for and giving blessings to is a practice not often mentioned. It is neither widely discussed yet it is regarded as an underrated power in the manifestation process. The power of prayer should not be underestimated. As written in the Bible (James 5:17) “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” Like the prayers from Elijah, we too can pray for rain on the Earth as much as we can pray for money to rain upon us (metaphorically speaking). What is the power of prayer? It is simply the power of God, or whomever you believe in. Prayer is a direct way to speak to God and for him (or her) to listen and answer to you. You may not always get the answers you want, but you will always be given the guidance you need. The act of prayers with good intentions prevails over simply wishful thinking. It is also a way to increase your positive vibrations about money.
Praying for Money
How do you go about praying for money? Easy. You say a prayer. For example:
- “I pray that the money I desire will manifest itself to me.”
- “I pray that the money I have been given will help to serve others.”
- “May the blessings I place upon my money allow more money to flow to me.”
Whatever your prayer or blessing may be, it’s important you be in a positive state of mind. Whether it be giving a prayer for or a blessing to someone or something. If you struggling with getting started, just try to be in a mindful and conscious state of giving. It should help to change your thinking to positive thoughts and increase your energy about money.
Secondly, whenever you think about money, spare a moment to bless it. Give a prayer that it will go to and serve others who are in need. Forget any idea you have that money is scarce, limited, or hard to come by. There is an abundance of money out there. Think about it. Right now, there are Billions, Trillions actually, of dollars being transferred all over the world. It’s happening right now, and it’s happening all the time. By giving your blessings, you are signaling to the Universe to send some of that money to you.
Money is meant to be transferred and moved about. Meaning being possessive with it sends a negative message to the Universe. By blessing your money, it helps to make you a cheerful giver and this elicits positive vibes. Remember, cheerful givers receive. And they receive often. So while it may not seem like it, even a mere thank-you to someone or tipping a hospitable waiter will make an impact. Maybe not immediately but, certainly later down the track.
Amongst the wealthy people I’ve met, a common activity many of them incorporate into their daily lives is meditation. They believe meditating not only provides health and wellness benefits but also enables them to reach the depths of their subconscious mind. Why is this important? Because in order to manifest the money you desire, your conscious and subconscious mind needs to be in sync. In other words, both parts of your mind need to be aligned with the same thought patterns and frequency. By synchronizing both our conscious and subconscious minds, we align ourselves with the infinite power of the Universe. It’s also a way to align ourselves spiritually to help manifest the money we desire.
For instance, you can try to feed yourself positive affirmations about money. However, if your subconscious mind is riddled with negative thoughts about money, it makes manifesting difficult to achieve. Dr. Bruce Lipton from the Stanford University Medical Center echoes this sentiment. He suggests it is our subconscious mind which ultimately casts the deciding vote on how much success, abundance, happiness, and health we experience.Hence why “shallow” affirmations (statements not rooted into our subconscious) seldom work. If the affirmations you say to yourself don’t feel right, it means you have a misalignment. If you don’t feel you deserve to have the money you desire, it means you have a misalignment. Remember, your dominating thoughts and feelings determine your frequency. And one of the best ways to align both parts of your mind and change your frequency is to meditate. Meditation requires practice. However, you will find, meditation is one of the easiest and effective methods of synchronizing your conscious and unconscious mind. Meditating doesn’t have to be complicated. If you are not used to meditating, try these steps:
- Find a quiet place where you can be in solitude.
- Close your eyes and listen to yourself breathe for at least one minute.
- Visualize the money you want to have in your life.
- Visualize what you would do with the money.
- Be specific in your visualizations.
- Be absolutely convinced that money is your fundamental right.
- Incorporate positive affirmations about money (plant the seeds deep into your subconscious).
- Meditate daily.

18. Count Money.
The purpose of this manifestation technique is for you to see and feel money. Whether it be coins or paper notes. Imprinting to your mind what it feels like to see, touch, and hold money is a way to manifest the reality of having more of it. Seeing yourself holding the money you want more of in your hands, makes it easier to visualize. By seeing money in your hands you subconsciously awaken and motivate yourself to work harder and smarter to make it happen.
Here is how to do it. Open up your wallet and pull out all your notes or dollar bills. Then, place the pile in your hand out in front of you. Feel the pile of cash in your hands, feel the weight of the money, feel the materials the money is made of, feel prints made on the money. Run your thumb downside the edges to flick the notes. Then, with both hands begin to count the money as if you had just received it from someone. Count the pile over and over again but try this. Imagine the notes you are holding are larger denominations. For example, imagine those $1 notes are $100 notes, $2 notes are $200 notes, etc. The aim is to try and make the experience as vivid and as real as possible.
19. Smell Money.
Smell is a powerful sense that makes a direct connection with your brain. Probably more so than any of our other senses. The memory of strong and distinctive smells can stay with us for many years even though we may have forgotten them. It has the power to evoke our memories of certain times in our past. The appealing and distinctive smell of money that is rarely found on anything else is much the same. Engaging our sense of smell is a way to help boost the manifestation process and attract money into your life. So what does this smell have to do with manifesting money? Simple! Constantly smelling money puts you in vibrational alignment with it. While vividly holding it in your hands, also smell it to take it all in. Imagine the bills you are sniffing are yours. Remember the smell, the distinctive scent of money and use it when practicing your visualization techniques.
20. Get to Work.
The Universe answers to those who know exactly what they want. To those who put in the work. Whom practice manifestation techniques daily. And, to those who take consistent and massive action! Every successful person I’ve studied and met, put in the work to get to where they are. No one did it for them. They paved their own path to success and, despite failures, continued to keep working at it. You may have heard people who credit a lot of their financial success to luck. What you don’t hear about is, how they created their luck—or, more accurately speaking, how they manifested their luck.
The great Roman philosopher Seneca once said; “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” and I believe this is true. At least in my own experience. One way or another, we all create our own luck. And, luck doesn’t occur unless we take action and put in the work. If you are willing to put in the time and effort to work hard, you’ll make it. The money you want to manifest will materialize, and you will know how to manifest more of it. Remember, Manifestation answers to those who put in the work while keeping a resilient spirit and a determined mind. So put in the work, create your own luck and, seize opportunities when they present themselves.
21. Trust the Process.
Manifesting money is a process. Meaning it takes time, effort, and commitment to make it work. It is not something you try today and forget about tomorrow. rather, it is something you work at day-in and day-out. Something you take step-by-step and make progress towards. We all want to manifest money as quickly as possible. The problem is when the money doesn’t show up when we want it to, we become frustrated and disappointed. We let doubt creep in hindering our progress. Often at times, when we are closer than we think to achieve our goal. We tend to give up too soon. Many times at the first sign of defeat. We don’t give ourselves a fighting chance to succeed let alone the Universe to prove itself.
You might not always see the results you want, but be patient. It is important to keep at it. Have faith, and trust in the process. Trust that the techniques you have learned here are working for you. Trust that the Universe is conspiring to give you what you want. And trust in yourself that you have the ability to manifest all the money you desire. As you use these techniques, do everything in your power to stay focused on the end goal. Focus on the money you want to manifest and what it will be like to have it. Rather than spend time doubting, worrying, and questioning whether manifestation works have faith. Stick with it. Trust the process. If you do your part, the Universe will do theirs.
