You can manifest money by using various methods such as vision boards and mantras. It’s also helpful to adopt a positive mindset prior to practicing manifestation.
Manifestation may be able to help your financial situation whether you’re new to the practice or not. If you’re struggling with paying your monthly bills or have difficulties paying off debt, learning how to manifest money might be the solution for you.
Manifestation uses multiple methods, and you can experiment to see which ones work best for you. Although some people believe that manifestation isn’t backed by science, we’re going to explain how positive psychology may suggest otherwise.
Simply put, manifestation is the practice of thinking about something you want as though it’s already happened, and that positivity and actionable thinking making it so. This process is the same whether you want to manifest money or happiness: the more you think of it as already having happened, the more likely it is to happen.
Manifestation also involves focusing on what you want with your actions. This can be through meditation, journaling, creating a vision board or something else entirely.
An aspect of manifestation is the law of attraction, which is a belief that whatever we put into our lives is what we receive in return—both good and bad. This is similar to a self-fulfilling prophecy. For instance, you may make a mistake because you’re preoccupied with the worries about making a mistake. On the flip side, if someone is working toward a promotion and raise, that is also likely to happen.
You may have heard of the most famous book on the law of attraction, “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. This 2006 book was promoted by Oprah Winfrey and immediately became a smash hit. One could argue that “The Secret” is the primary reason that the law of attraction gained such popularity, which created an entire movement.
People now use the law of attraction to:
- Increase personal wealth
- Get a better job
- Find loving relationships
- Travel the world
- Create the overall life they want
Manifestation and the law of attraction work together. Think about manifestation methods as ways to make the law of attraction work for you. By using some of the methods described below, you’ll be able to attract money and more.
How does manifestation work?
Those who practice manifestation believe that everything in the universe has a frequency, and we can match our personal frequency to attract what we want. This means that the new house or car you want has a frequency. And yes, it even means that your future spouse has a frequency as well.
(Even if the belief of manifestation isn’t for you, consider using the power of positive thinking—or law of attraction—to create positive change in your life.)
Money has a frequency, too. By using manifestation methods, you can match your frequency to attract money. Money and the law of attraction often go hand in hand since money presents all of us with more options.
Eager to get started attracting money?
Next, we’ll discuss what to do before manifesting money, money manifestation methods and how to eliminate obstacles that might get in your way.
No matter how you choose to manifest, your mindset is the most important aspect of manifesting abundance and money. If you aren’t in a headspace that is positive and open to receiving money, then you won’t receive it.
Prior to practicing manifestation, there are some internal challenges that many of us need to overcome in order to adapt our mindsets.
Issues with money can be deeply rooted inside of us, and some people have anxieties around money for most of their lives.
However, in order to manifest money, you first must recognize past issues with it. This is beneficial because a major part of manifestation is thinking positively and not letting obstacles, including unhelpful money mindsets, get in your way.
Everyone’s money issues can be different, but know that everyone has them. Regardless of what you struggle with, manifestation requires addressing those issues before moving forward.
Limiting beliefs are negative beliefs that may prevent you from succeeding or possibly lead to self-sabotage. Some limiting beliefs include:
- Believing you’ll never be successful
- Believing you’re not deserving
- Believing that manifestation can’t work for you
Limiting beliefs are not helpful for manifestation because they are closely related to cognitive distortions, or inflated thoughts that can distort your perception of reality. A great example is the limiting belief of never being successful. Having this belief can lead to self-sabotage before you even begin manifesting.
Much like any other skill, manifesting for money takes practice, so try a few different methods to see what works best for you.
Here are five of the most common methods that you can experiment with.
Money mantras or affirmations are phrases that you repeat to yourself to stay positive and remind you of what you’re working toward. These simple phrases can help lift you out of a rut or give you a reminder that though the work you’re putting in may be hard, it will all be worth it in the long run.
Below are some popular and effective mantras for manifesting your money. This is not an exhaustive list, so feel free to use these and any more you find that help you in your manifestation journey. Use these to help you with your money manifestation or when you need a reminder of why you’re manifesting in the first place.
- Wealth flows into my life with ease.
- I am a magnet for money.
- My income exceeds my expenses.
- There is always enough money in my life.
- I am worthy of the wealth I desire.
- I am financially free.
- I can look at my finances without fear.
- I attract money on a daily basis.
- There are no limits to the amount of money I can receive.
- I release all resistance to attracting money.
2. Journal regularly
Developing the habit of journaling on a regular basis allows you to have a space for your thoughts and goals without the fear of judgment. Keeping a journal will help you keep an eye on the money you want to attract, and it’ll also help you address limiting beliefs that may arise.
One great benefit of having a journal is that you can look back and see how far you’ve come. When you get that raise or promotion, you’ll be able to go to that page and remember that success is possible.
A vision board is a collage of images or words representing your wishes or goals, intended to serve as inspiration. One of the most popular methods of manifestation, it helps you attract what you desire while also serving as a daily reminder of your goals.
Your vision board can include pictures of the car you want or a big home you’d like to live in. You can add places you want to travel to as well as big piles of money. It’s your vision board, so feel free to get creative!
If you’re hoping to manifest money and other positive aspects in your life, you need to surround yourself with positivity. This may require you to set boundaries with people in your life who bring negativity. The people in your corner should be the ones who see the glass as half full and motivate you to reach your goals.
There’s an old saying, “Act as if,” which refers to acting as if you have what you’re seeking. In reference to manifesting money, act as if you’re a confident, successful person who has all the money they need. This doesn’t mean going out spending money recklessly or racking up bad debt.
Faking it until you make it means adopting the mindset of someone who has an abundance of money. For example, would a person with plenty of money lack self-confidence and be filled with doubt? Of course not! So, hold your head up high and attract money and opportunities by acting like you have it and deserve it as well.
Does money manifestation work?
Manifestation works, but people have their doubts. On the surface, manifestation sounds like some sort of magic, but there is research that shows these methods can work.
There’s an entire field called “positive psychology,” which was popularized by Martin Seligman, Ph.D., former president of the American Psychological Association (APA). When looking at positive psychology as well as other branches of psychology, you’ll find many parallels with manifestation methods that are backed by research. Research shows that:
- Belief can change your reality
- Feeling in control leads to happiness and a longer life
- You can overcome helplessness
Below are some studies that back up these three points.
Belief can change your reality
One study conducted by Ellen Langer found that beliefs can actually help you with weight loss. Researchers told a group of housekeepers how many calories they burn while working, and one month later, those housekeepers had lost more weight than a control group.
Feeling in control leads to happiness and a longer life
In another study, Langer and her research partner Judith Rodin gave residents of a nursing home more control over their day-to-day lives. This group of older adults were not only happier, but they also ended up living longer than the control group after the experiment was completed.
You can overcome helplessness
Positive psychologist Shawn Achor also explores Martin Seligman’s research about learned helplessness in his book “The Happiness Advantage.” Seligman found that past experiences can make a person give up. But when you eliminate limiting beliefs, you’re more likely to pursue your dreams.
A common misconception is that manifestation is simply putting some pictures on a vision board and letting the universe do the rest. Those who manifest money successfully know that taking action is required to achieve their goals. Below are a few best practices for manifesting money by taking action:
- Use your confidence: There’s no more being silent. Tell people what you want.
- Work hard: Showing up and doing your best at work will be noticed and improve your chances of a raise or promotion.
- Catch your limiting beliefs: When limiting beliefs arise, turn to your mantras.
- Develop good habits: Whether it’s journaling or saying affirmations, designate a daily time where you can use these manifestation methods.
- Recognize bad habits: No amount of manifestation can counteract bad spending habits, so develop a budget and keep your goals in mind.
