I have manifested money while having many doubts about it happening but the reason it worked is because the past and my beliefs don't matter. All that matters is right now, in this instant when I close my eyes, I KNOW the money is in my hands. Whatever belief I have or had about money makes no difference. That's how I see it.
To me, it's all about who we are more so than a belief of whether or not the money will appear. If who I am is someone who knows that money is bad, it's likely going to be difficult for me to generate money, even if I really want it. And if I can manifest the money by knowing it's in my hands, it's likely I'll manifest a way to lose it quickly.
If you really can override who you inherently are, and make it so you only exist in the now, then you are fortunate to be able to make that change. Were you previously someone who had issues with money and were you able to instantly make a change when you decided to?
I know sometimes changes (even big ones) are instantaneous. I wasn't able to make the instantaneous shift when it came to money. I had too tangled a relationship with it and with my parents' attitudes about money and so on.
