Can You Really ‘Manifest’ Money?

By Mark Ling
Updated September 7, 2015

Can you really ‘manifest’ money? I’ve been asked that question many times over the years because not only am I successful financially, I’m also someone who got there by starting off with practicing The Law of Attraction.

Many people see this kind of stuff as woo-woo and not ‘scientific’ but I see it a bit differently as I’ve seen from the inside out when it works, I’ve seen it not work for others and I have a pretty good idea of why.

And I have a lot to share as I’d love to see people learn the real way to manifesting money. This is what works, and perhaps it’s the missing ingredient to ‘The Secret’ and other popularized teachings about The Law of Attraction.

If you’re in a rush btw, you should totally download my free report here while it’s still available, I know it’ll become the start of a dramatic journey for some of you towards wealth and success.

Here’s what happened to me… Ok, so firstly I better mention how I got into the Law of Attraction, and *how I used it to manifest money.

A friend of my fathers, Graham, is a real estate millionaire.

And back when I was 16 years old, he decided to give me a Mind Power training program that taught me all sorts of things about the Law of Attraction, how to manifest your dream life, and so forth.

I learned all about how the universe really works, how your outer world is actually a reflection of your inner world (and NOT the other way around).

More importantly I learned several tools for reprogramming my inner world, so that in turn my outer world was a life of my own creation, rather than stumbling through life being a small character in other people’s stories.

One of the easiest tools I learned was affirmations, I love affirmations because you don’t even have to believe the affirmation to make it work, you just have to say it out loud over and over again for 5 minutes a day, every day, for about 90 days in a row.

It’s like dropping a drop of red dye into a bucket of water, sooner or later the bucket will turn red.

Graham convinced me to give this a proper try for myself, so I kept a calendar and made sure that I did it properly. He told me to think of these affirmations as though they were my ‘wish list’ of things I want in my life.

I started with affirmations like:

I’m the kind of person who finds it easy to make money

I’m supremely self confident and I love taking risks

And other affirmations that I thought would serve me well in my life. These were not beliefs I had about myself, they were the opposite of what I believed and the incredible thing was after doing this exercise for 90 days, well, I felt the same…

…But give it 90 days after that and without even having to do any more exercises, dramatic changes started happening in my personality, in my outer world (my life)… and well everything.

People started telling me that I seemed a lot more confident, I had more friends than ever before, I started trying all sorts of money making schemes… ok the first couple didn’t work out, but eventually I discovered how to run a real business and become incredibly successful.

Other people use visualization (I did that too, but to a lesser extent), some people use vision boards, mind movie videos and other things. I felt affirmations were the easiest so I did those more than anything else. And I used them to recreate my entire life path.

Here are some important things about manifesting money

Ok, I could be talking about manifesting all sorts of things in this article, but I’m going to focus on manifesting money so that I don’t drag on forever 🙂

Here are some important things you should be aware:

1. Look For Clues Not Outcomes

When you try to manifest money, you should get yourself an ‘ideas book’ because the universe doesn’t give you ‘things’… like the winning Lottery numbers for instance! But what it does give you, is clues. These come in the form of inspiration, thoughts and ideas.

Some people have told me it’s coming from my deep subconscious and it’s not even the universe… Ok it could be that, or it could be more spiritual, I’m not sure what it is, but it sure does work.

The reason why it works is not the point, it does work. But you have to be looking for clues and you have to allow your habits to adjust as your mindset changes thanks to your manifesting efforts.

What do clues look like?

Maybe you’ll discover some opportunity at some stage that you’re not sure if you should look further at, some new career path perhaps, or maybe someone new in your life who has some interesting ideas. Or maybe it’s some book you see on the bookshelf that you wouldn’t normally read but you somehow feel compelled to go get it.

2. Spend More Of Your Life Taking Action (and less time regretting or waiting for things to be easier)

Most great things in life are just outside your comfort zone.

The same thing is true when it comes to money making. It’s like learning guitar, or a foreign language, money making is a ‘skill’. It’s not some ‘thing’ that comes down to luck and great brains.

Heck several of the richest people that I know dropped out of high school and had terrible grades.

It’s not about how old you are, most millionaires don’t even start until their 40s and 50s, some even get started in their 60s and older.

But you won’t get there if you don’t take action. And the hardest thing about taking action is the first 21 days.

Doing something for 21 days in a row is enough for it to become a comfortable new habit. Your brain will try to make you go back to your old habits, but sometimes you need to adopt a new one.

Kids learning to play guitar need to be practicing every day, but if they can’t bust through doing it for 21 days in a row, they run the risk of leaving that guitar in the cupboard and never picking it up every again.

The same is true when it comes to taking action in the world of money making. Before you have a great money making idea, you need to start surrounding yourself with ideas from people who are actually financially successful (not from well meaning friends who are not rich).

If you’re not sure what to do, then just try to spend 30 minutes every day listening to audio books or reading books from successful people.

You may have heard of the saying that your income is the average of your 5 best friends. Well I believe it’s the average of your 5 biggest influences.

If you want to make more money then make your biggest influences become people who are wealthy. Read their books, listen to their audios, become inspired, take notes and change your life forever after. Get yourself outside the square.

I have a lot more to share with you, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Final Thoughts…

Most obstacles are actually just opportunities for learning.

Look for the silver lining in every negative situation, sometimes it’s just not clear at first but it becomes more clear with the right attitude to the situation.

Don’t lose your head when others around you are in a panic.

Pin It

Project yourself 2 years into the future and paint a picture for your life that is exciting, fun and successful, then be happy in your current moment that today is just the beginning of your journey.

Sometimes bad things happen to the hero in a heroes journey, if you are going through a tough time then perhaps you’re just at the ‘drama’ part of your story, with the right attitude this may be something that defines you and makes your life story all the more remarkable.

Make other people’s lives better. The easiest way to get happy is to do something that makes someone else happy.

Be grateful. The fastest way to feel mega rich is to be grateful and practice being grateful for what you have right now in this moment.
