Lots of offers for car financing, credit cards, and other sorts of junk—but then I happened upon something quite interesting. There was a check for almost 400 dollars reimbursing me for some credit card monitoring service I had used on an account I probably opened at least a decade ago, and closed out about five years ago. Apparently, the company they were using wasn’t providing the service to everyone paying for it, and Citibank was refunding the fees.
However, I know the general frame of mind here is that you can’t manifest money into your life by using the Law of Attraction. Yet, over and over again, people use this precise technique to help them move towards greater financial prosperity. You’ve likely even heard of people “willing” themselves into winning the lottery and receiving other types of windfalls.
Spend imaginary money. The most common exercise invites us to keep a magic check register where we begin with a gifted $1,000 and double the amount every day. Your job is to (imaginarily) spend it all – giving it away doesn't count. Track your purchases in your register and watch your spending muscles grow. This process sends a new instruction to Universe that's opposite of restriction and lack.
Our relationship with money is quite the interesting one, and attracting it is like attracting anything else in our lives, but we have so much ‘stuff’ around it that it seems more difficult. I am always open to more, but as time has gone on and I have seen life from both a place of financial struggle and one where things were much more abundant, it became clear to me that the happiness level really isn’t affected as much. Less stress, sure..but that is not the same as feeling truly happy. That is a great perspective you had on your money situation and is likely a key factor in your success. It is easy to get a bit panicked and impatient with the online bit when that money isn’t coming as fast as we would like it to, or in the amounts we would hope. That is an amazing story about your mom, and like you said, never would have seen that as a source of money if you had to guess. I am so glad you shared that story because the more people read about these types of incidents, the more faith they build that this can happen for them too!
I read this a few days ago and decided to try it. I heard of smelling money before but for some reason, I didn’t keep up with it. So, on Monday I smelled money every hour for about 5 or 6 hours. I smelled it and gave Thanks for all the prosperity and abundance that I have in my life right now and what was coming to me! That night, I wrote a list of reasons as to why I love money and I reread it. For the next few days, I smelled money (some days weren’t every hour but 3-5 times throughout the day) , read my list 1-3 times a day and I just tried my best to have positive feelings about money!
I have read dozens of books on the law of attraction, as a result I adore books by two authors: Genevieve Davis and Ricky Gravitas. Ideas in these books are very influential to my life. But _this_ book contains _all_ those ideas and even more. It is just tremendous. It is like an encyclopaedia on the law of attraction. It contains tons of useful things.

Allow the universe to handle the details, and don't be concerned with how the money will manifest. Just focus on the intention by taking guided action. When you receive small amounts of money, do not try to justify it rationally, just be thankful and believe that your intention of manifesting money is finally happening. Slowing in time, you will manifest larger and larger amounts.
Esther Hicks says that for everything thing you want, there is a counterpart that you don’t want. When you focus on what you don’t want, even if it’s in an effort to get it out of your life, it always comes closer to you. This is because whatever you give your attention to, you get. Therefore, you need to focus on what you want and NOT what you don’t want.
Whenever you start feeling bad about your financial situation, see that as a form of feedback. Let it become an immediate trigger to refocus on your desires. Say to yourself, “Okay, obviously I don’t want this. So what do I want instead?” Then think about happier alternatives; allow your mind to go there, and let the resulting new vibe flow through you.
We can easily manifest money into our lives, or anything else for that matter, by expecting it to come to pass. Wishing and hoping doesn’t work. The Law of Attraction is founded on an expectation of a specific outcome. It revolves around the potential positive or negative energy that a given thought takes in your mind. When you expect the worst to happen, it often happens. When you expect the opposite, that often occurs as well.
Great book. The techniques are very helpful. Like a lot of LOA books there's a lot of material. I've personally seen my finances grow after reading this book and I currently have much more in the bank than I had before I started the techniques. I honestly haven't done all the techniques like I want to and my finances have still grown. I'm looking forward to incorporating more techniques in my life and seeing my finances grow further.
The first method for manifesting money into your life is by knowing that it will happen. You quite literally cannot anticipate it to occur if you don’t know, wholeheartedly, that it will come to pass. You need to know it and you need to own that you know it. Regardless of whatever else is going in your life, knowing that something will eventually happen is an incredibly powerful way for manifesting things.
Jim Carey is infamous now for having done this specific thing in his life. In 1985 through 87, Carrey would drive up onto Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, looking at houses, and he would imagine all of these things in his. He would imagine the big house, the cars, respect from directors, more opportunities than he knew what to do with, and so on. Keep in mind, at the time he was flat broke.
The basic rule of the Law Of Attraction: Like Attracts Like. So how are you going to attract money if you have a mindset of a poor person? Acting wealthy doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of money (that you don’t have at this point). It just means that you can allow yourself to window shop for expensive things, plan amazing holidays, treat yourself to small luxury things every once in awhile.
