How to Attract Money Using Mind Power… Part 9 of 20: Act As If By James Goi Jr.

I think of acting as if as the secret weapon of mind power. Since it has to do with physical action, most people would not recognize it as a mind-power technique. But it is a mind-power technique and an effective one at that. People with no knowledge of mind power or metaphysics come to believe events will unfold in certain ways so they just naturally act as if events will unfold in those ways. Of course, they don’t understand that their belief and their acting as if help cause events to unfold in the ways they unfold.

Chapter 9 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power, is titled “Act As If.” Here’s the quote I use to open the chapter:

“Live as if it were already manifest and you shall find it manifest.”
—Henry Harrison Brown, How to Control Fate through Suggestion, 1901

Living as if, acting as if, your financial circumstances will develop into what you want them to be or are what you want them to be is a key technique for attracting money. The act-as-if technique, as it concerns money, is simply this: You want to act as if you will or do have the money you want to have. An obvious block to doing this is lack of belief and expectancy. If we don’t believe and expect that a certain thing will come about, we are not going to be inclined to act as if that thing will come about.

And then of course there’s fear. Regarding spending money, people resist acting as if they will or do have the money they want to have out of fear that if they spend money now they might need it later and not have it. The presence of fear and the lack of belief and expectancy are clear signs that we have not done our money-attracting mind work to a great-enough degree yet. Our willingness and ability to act as if is a yardstick by which we can measure our progress towards creating the money mindsets required to be able to attract the money we want.

And we can improve our money mindsets by bringing ourselves to act as if beyond our comfort zones. If we do so, it will be as a result of some underlying belief and expectancy that we can have the money we want. With zero belief or expectancy one is not likely to act as if at all. It is our embryonic belief and expectancy that we need to cultivate. And acting as if is a powerful way to help us do that.

So you don’t need a lot of belief and expectancy to begin with. But you do need at least some. By acting as if you will have or do have the money you want to have you will, over time, convince your conscious mind that you will have your money and you will convince your subconscious mind that you do have your money.

When you believe and expect that you’ll get your money you’ll just naturally think and feel and speak and act as if you will get your money. You’ll be feeding your subconscious mind mental impressions and images of you having your money. Your subconscious mind does not distinguish between imagined things and real things and it has no concept of time, so it believes that your mental impressions and images depict real, present, things and circumstances.

Your subconscious mind then sets about causing what it believes already exists to actually come about. That’s what the subconscious mind does. As far as manifesting and attracting are concerned, that is the job of the subconscious mind. Remember, the subconscious mind is a machine.

You can act as if you will or do have the money you want as a natural result of belief and expectancy. And you can also act as if you will or do have the money you want so that you can bring about and increase belief and expectancy.

In practice, acting as if can take many forms. It could be as simple as spending a few dollars on something fun that you might normally tend to pass up, such as going to a movie for instance. Or perhaps you could test drive the car you would own if you had the money to buy it. You could look at houses on the market.

Acting as if you will have or do have the money you want includes such things as learning about personal finance and investing. Those are subjects you’d be wise to be interested in if you really thought you were going to have the money you want to have.

Acting as if is not about being irresponsible with your money. You are presently living in financial circumstances that dictate the limits of what you can and can’t do with money. Acting as if is about testing your limits. It’s about stretching those limits. It’s about testing and stretching your mind. After all, attracting money with mind power is, to a large degree, about your mind. The money part is secondary.

You can attract anything into your life using the act-as-if technique. I’m teaching you how to attract money using the technique. Either way, always remember that the mind, being the cause, is primary and the money (or any other thing you’d care to attract) is secondary as it is merely an effect, a result, of how you use your mind.

Here’s another quote I use in the chapter:

“All the power of the universe is with you. Feel it, know it, and then act as though it were true.”
—Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind, 1938

Consider all of this when you spend, give, save or invest money. Strive to do these things in ways which reflect your belief and expectancy that you’ll have the money you want. You will increase your belief and expectancy as a result. And you will increase your bank balance as a result as well.

    Hi James,

    Thanks for the chapter 9 (Act as if). Lessons of this chapter answer most of my questions.

    But when see cash flow is slow and nearly stagnant, it automatically signal our mind to be very carefull with our spending and save every penny. Because we do not know when situation will improve. This really creates an un-known fear within us as we always stay with our reality.

    However I agree with you. When we “act as if”, we are having a prosperous financial situation right at this moment and spend some money to feel good, it really removes our negetive feeling about present financial reality. We feel some bliss inside us.

    Thanks once again.

  7. Leila says:

    Hi James, I remember when I first had any money of my own. It seemed that when I was broke there was a strong feeling that the thing to do was to spend some money! Maybe that was spirit rather than caution speaking to me….

  10. Ruth says:

    James, I love this. I do it all the time and fall asleep in my future; tasting the future, smelling and touching it. Most of the time this works. I am getting better. Some things happen right away. Some things take awhile. I believe everything will happen for me at the right time. I am thankful that some of the things I wanted did not happen. At the time I was not ready. Now I am. So everything works out and I am always ‘taken care of’ by the universe. I think the universe cares enough about me that it does not always give me what I want. Later I see it would have been bad for me. So, is that something in my mind that protects me or is it the universe protecting me?

  11. Ruth (August 1, 2010 at 1:27 am): Hi Ruth! Thank you for your comment. The way I see it, it’s not all that easy for me to separate the mind of the individual from the universe at large. What’s out there is in here and what’s in here is out there. The whole exists in every part. So I’d be inclined to say that it is something in your mind that protects you AND it is the universe that protects you. In fundamental ways they are one and the same. And thank Heaven it/them/they do protect us! What a wonderful mechanism it is which protects us from (seemingly) outside harm and at the same time protects us from ourselves as well.

  14. Kris (June 13, 2011 at 2:47 pm): Hi Kris! Thank you for your interest! Actually, I just added part 18 a few days ago, so it is now available to be read. As far as the next two, it’s my intention to write and post them in a relatively timely manner. Thank you again for your interest! May you continue to find all those good things you seek.
