Million Dollar Experiment Manifests $4 Million

February 27th, 2007 by Steve Pavlina

I just updated the Million Dollar Experiment results (the page might take a while to load due to its size).  Collectively we’re up to about $4 million with 1169 participants actually reporting results.  That’s about $3400 per person on average.  Some have manifested pennies, while others have manifested six-figure sums (myself included).

Most people who join the MDE only sign up once and then forget about it, never bothering to report back to refresh their listing.  So although there are 6000+ people on the participant list, most are not active.  I might clean up the list at some point to drop those who never refresh their listings within 90 days of signing up, since the results page is becoming rather huge.

Every week I continue to hear some amazing stories of how this experiment is affecting people.  It’s been fun and rewarding to see all the creative ways people are attracting greater financial abundance.

With respect to the recent articles on polarity and polarization, technically you can use either polarity to manifest money.  However, the original intent behind this experiment has always been:

In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention.

So this is actually a love-polarized intention.  The idea is that we’re manifesting money to serve “the highest good of all.”  As a group experiment we’re doing this cooperatively, so this isn’t a competitive race to see who gets there first.  The goal is to help create more abundance for everyone who wants to experience it.

The actual polarity you bring to this experiment depends on your reasons for joining.  I’ve seen many people join the MDE with a fear-based intent.  They tell me the MDE is their last resort because they can’t pay their bills and they’re joining out of desperation, blindly hoping this experiment will magically solve their financial problems.  They’re attempting to draw energy from this experiment instead of giving energy to it.  Such a fear-based intent is incongruent with the original spirit of the MDE.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of these people do well with this experiment.  Usually I never hear from them again after they join, and they never return to update their results.

On the other hand, I’ve noticed that those who appear to be succeeding with the MDE almost universally embrace the love-polarized aspect of it.  These people are happily manifesting instead of manifesting to be happy.  Even as they sign up, they comment about how inspired they are to contribute to this unusual experiment and to create abundance for everyone.  They radiate energy into the experiment rather than try to pull energy from it.  These people either already have an abundance mindset, or they’re gradually adopting one.  They see themselves as creating money so they can do something positive with it (some form of giving or service) instead of feeling they need the money just to feel more secure or to solve their own problems.

If you’ve been participating in the MDE, which way has your energy been flowing?  Do you see yourself as giving energy to the experiment for the benefit of all?  Or are you trying to drain energy from it like a vampire sucking blood?  Is this something you’re doing just for yourself, or do you really care about helping others?  Do you intend to use the money you receive to satisfy your own needs or to increase your ability to serve?

If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll probably see that your true intentions are a mixture of both polarities.  But since this is a love-polarized experiment, I suggest you view this experiment as an outlet for giving.  Imagine yourself giving energy to this intention for the highest good of all, and let the universe handle the return flow.  You’ll know it’s working when unexpected sums of money begin mysteriously flowing into your life.  In the beginning it might start with finding some loose change — that’s how it began for me — but you can build quite a flow from there.
