I've had the experience of receiving thousands of dollars. Back in August, I received a bit under $10,000 which enabled me to get out of debt, pay all my bills and buy a ticket to return home (I was living abroad).
A few weeks ago I got a gig that paid me $400 more than I was supposed to be paid. I also received $120 in gift certificates.
I share this because it IS possible to have such things happen without having to work hard. I never worked hard for that huge money manifestation.
The key for me was to create a mental shift in consciousness. And I never used visualization (I never really had success with it).
I did it primarily through using affirmations (that I believed in), letting go of the outcome and avoiding all negativie talk about money, including my own words.
Every time you hear or say negative things about money, it will cause you to further strengthen the negativity!
So, it's critical that you interrupt the thought. For example, your may feel tempted to say, "I can't afford this" or "I'm doomed!". That will keep you locked in a poverty mindset! So, interrupt it with a word or phrase like, "I choose to find a way" or say, "prosperity" (and repeat this as often as you remember). By consciously interrupting it, you are forcing your attention on what you want, not what you don't want.
So every time you express something negative, you're getting more of it! When you express something positive, you're getting more of it because that is what your mind is focusing on.
Therefore, it's critical that you retrain your brain to focus on what you want, not what you don't want. It will take some discipline in the beginning, but over time your brain will get in, and you will feel lighter about your money situation.
