I disagree. My every life experience has indicated to me that beliefs DO matter when it comes to reality creation, i.e., manifestation. If you don't believe something can happen, it can't. If you believe that it's difficult, it will be. If you believe that it happens to other people but not to you, that's how it will happen.
Emotions may or may not play a role, but beliefs are the very structure of our personal reality. I have seen for myself that changing or eliminating beliefs causes changes in my reality. I have no reason to think that suddenly, when it comes to money (as opposed to love, relocation, free plane tickets, children, etc etc), beliefs play no role at all.
If it were actually as simple as me just "being conscious" of what I want, I'd be a billionaire by now, because this is something I've been reading, thinking, praying, meditating, and working on for some years. I can't tell you how many books on the topic of manifestation (particularly manfiesting money) I've read! And I've watched videos, paid for recorded materials and e-books and you name it. I'm so well-versed in these concepts that it's almost scary (and I very much regret having spent so much time and money on it, given that almost none of it has been directly useful or helpful).
Clearly, there's more to it than being conscious, and the fact that when I put my focus on money it ends up that I have LESS money on hand and LESS money available is a pretty good indicator that, in this case, putting conscious energy on the topic of "money" is not yielding "more" but "less".
