Welcome to the home of the Million Dollar Experiment. The goal of this experiment is to attempt to use the power of intention to manifest $1 million for each person who chooses to participate. It is 100% free, and there are no costs of any kind. You can even participate anonymously. If you haven't already done so, please read the Million Dollar Experiment blog post and the Million Dollar Experiment - Version 2.0 post for the full background and details.

The Intention

This experiment is based on the intention-manifestation model of reality, where the goal is to generate $1 million of additional wealth for each person who chooses to participate.

If you wish to participate, all you need to do is to decide to put forth the following intention:

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.

Free audio version: You can also listen to an MP3 audio version of this intention (0:47, 0.73MB), sung by entertainer S. Frank Stringham.

Spend time each day thinking about this intention. You can write it down, post it on a wall, recite it aloud, memorize it, visualize it happening, sing it, express it artistically, blog about it, discuss it with others, meditate on it, pray it, or otherwise put some positive thought energy behind it. Tell the universe to "make it so" in whatever way you feel is a good fit for your current belief system.

You don't have to physically do anything until and unless you feel intuitively guided to do so. Allow the universe to handle the details, and don't be concerned with how the money will manifest. Just focus on the intention while remaining detached from any particular outcome. Stay on the lookout for synchronicities (i.e. unusual coincidences) and new opportunities that may come into your life as a result of this experiment, especially within the first 48 hours. And when a new opportunity comes to you as a result of this intention, take advantage of it if you feel drawn to action.

You may wish to set this intention as your default screensaver, so you'll be frequently reminded to think about it. Here's how to do it under Windows:

  1. Click and drag your mouse to highlight the text of the intention above, and then hit Ctrl-C to copy it to the Windows clipboard.
  2. Right-click on your Windows desktop and click "Properties."
  3. Select the "Screen Saver" tab.
  4. From the Screen Saver drop-down list box, select "Marquee."
  5. Click the "Settings" button.
  6. Click on the text box, and hit Ctrl-V to paste the text of the intention.
  7. Click "OK."
  8. Click the "Preview" button to test your new Million Dollar Experiment screensaver, and make adjustments as needed.

Here are your options for the Mac:

Set up an RSS feed that delivers just the message. Add it to Safari. Pick the feed for the RSS screensaver.
or Rename your computer to reflect the message (use the "Your computer's name" screensaver).
or Create an image that includes the message, and use that as your screensaver.

And for Linux running KDE (instructions for Gnome and xscreensaver are similar):

  1. From the Start menu, select:
  2. Control Center
  3. Appearance & Themes
  4. Screen Saver
  5. Banners and Pictures
  6. Banner
  7. Paste the text into the "Message" field, and adjust the font, size and color to fit your screen.


Your minimum level of participation is to consciously think about the intention above for just 60 seconds per day. Sometime each day remind yourself to pause, take a deep breath, review the intention, focus your creative conscious energy on it with the expectation that it will manifest, and then release it completely. Allow the universe to handle the details. You're always free to do more, but commit yourself to at least 60 seconds each day for as long as you wish to continue the experiment. Treat it like an item on your daily to do list, or establish a regular time for it to make it a habit.

Join Privately

If you wish to privately and anonymously participate in this experiment, then all you need to do is to begin holding the intention above. You don't have to publicly announce your participation because the intention is designed to help anyone who consciously decides to participate -- it's perfectly fine if you wish to keep your participation private.

Join Publicly

If you wish to publicly participate in this experiment, please use the Million Dollar Experiment sign-up form, so I can add your name to the current participant list. You can also use that form to update your current status at any time. For this list I'm going to require real names only, not made-up handles. I think it's important that we use our real identities to promote accountability and truthfulness, so only choose to participate publicly if you have no qualms about this level of openness. If you feel hesitant about it at all, then you should participate privately. We don't want thoughts of anxiety corrupting the experiment.

Current Results

Visit the current results page for the latest manifestation results from the public participants. If you have chosen to participate publicly, you can use the sign-up form to send me the latest update to your info whenever you wish. Everyone starts at $0, but you don't have to reveal your running total even if you choose to participate publicly -- that's entirely optional. If you do choose to share your running total, only count the new money you feel has come into your life as a result of your participation in this experiment (i.e. the manifestation of this intention), not your regular income. Obviously your interpretation of that will be subjective, but this is a subjective experiment. Just do your best, and trust your intuition. If you receive unexpected money that you don't believe came to you as a result of this experiment, don't include it in your total.
