How I Attract Money

joe-two-points.jpg Just today I received the title for the latest car I attracted, a 1976 Jaguar XJS V-12. Not only is the car itself a collectible classic, but it was owned by legendary bodybuilder and movie star, Steve Reeves.

It appears I’m starting to collect celebrity cars. The car before this one was the exotic 1998 Panoz AIV Roadster, a rare hot rod no longer made that was once owned (and is signed) by rock star Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

I have a few other cars, of course, not the least of which is my beloved Francine, a 2005 Panoz Esperante GTLM.

But this post isn’t about attracting cars.

It’s about how I’m attracting money beyond belief to buy these cars.

Last week we looked at a mansion on a lake. It was listed at almost two million dollars. It’s got twenty-five acres and almost enough garage for all of my cars. It wasn’t good enough for us, though.

We then drove around and looked at yet another mansion, this one castle-like, plenty of space for a car collection, and selling for over six million dollars.

But this post isn’t about buying a mansion, either.

It’s about how I’m attracting the money to buy it.

I’m getting closer to announcing Operation YES, too.

That’s my vision to end homelessness forever by focusing on prosperity, not economic depression, and by using the law of attraction to help the planet.

But this post isn’t about attracting global change; it’s about how I attract money.

When I stop and think about my life, I’m in awe that thirty years ago I was homeless and today I’m a bestselling author who appears in movies and on television, and spends most of his evenings in the hot tub thinking about cars, guitars, cigars, mansions, and ways to help people and the planet.

How did that happen?

About twenty-five years ago I was in virtual poverty and taking every job I could think of to survive, while I maintained my vision of one day being an author.

I was a reporter, laborer, cab driver, truck driver, car salesman, freelance writer, literary agent, editor, geological technician, and more.

I lived in a dump, drove a clunker of a car, and was very unhappy.

How did I go from struggling to thriving?

I admit it wasn’t an overnight event. I think people have a better chance of being an overnight success today than I had back then.


Because my biggest stumbling block was my own mind, and today we have more tools to help you correct your thinking.

Back then, I didn’t feel I deserved success. I had a bad attitude toward wealthy people and even money itself. I was like most people, programmed into being a victim and thinking of lack and limitation.

I had low self-image and poor self-confidence. I was doing everything I could think of to be a success, but it wasn’t happening.

Why not?

I’ve said this many times before but it needs said again: your level of deservingness has to match what you want.

Your level of deservingness has to match what you want!

If it doesn’t, you’ll either not attract what you want or, if you manage to get it, you won’t keep it. You’ll find a means to push it away.

So, how did I learn how to attract money?

The secret is this: I learned to deprogram old limiting beliefs and reprogram new abundant ones.

For example…

Say you want more money.

You state the intention “I now attract more money into my life.”

You sit, meditate, feel the good vibes of having more money.

If you’re smart, you might even take some action.

But — the money doesn’t come.

Why not?

Does any of this self-help stuff work?

Why didn’t you attract what you intended?

Isn’t the law of attraction a real law?

Most likely in your unconscious mind you have beliefs such as —

“Money is evil.”

“Money will attract problems.”

“Money will make me a selfish person.”

“Wanting money is greedy.”

“Rich people are snobs.”

If you have one or more of those limiting beliefs within you, do you really think you’ll attract any money?

In truth, you’ll attract not having money.


Because your unconscious counter-intention (“Money is bad”) will veto your conscious intention (“I now attract more money into my life”).

Is it any wonder some people say The Secret or the law of attraction doesn’t work? They don’t understand that it is working perfectly – but based on your un-conscious beliefs.

Obviously, once you clear those hidden blocks/beliefs to your success, your success has nothing in the way of it happening.

The roadblocks are gone.

You’re clear.

But how do you get clear?

After all, the unconscious limitations are un-conscious!

So how do you find them and erase them?

I’ve been developing different ways to help myself and others get clear for years now.

And I keep looking for faster, easier ways to accomplish this. I keep creating audios, DVDS, books, and more.

There’s everything from my recent book The Key to my bestselling new Nightingale-Conant audio program The Missing Secret to the popular DVDs (made with Mark Ryan) on Subliminal Manifestation, and much more at my main website.

I wish I had these tools thirty years ago.

One of those tools is so easy it might be called the lazy person’s tool for instant change: I joined forces with Pat O’Bryan and together we created The Clearing Audio.

This breakthrough audio works so well that people are sending us unsolicited raving endorsements, such as —

“I just wanted to share with you since I bought the clearing audio just 48 hours ago (yes 48 hours ago) I feel more calm, less stressed about life and my business…”

That’s what John and Chystal Pate said.

“Joe, I just want you to know that I am positively stunned by the effectiveness of the Clearing Audio.  I downloaded them, dropped them on my ipod and used the binaural music track during my morning meditation,  I was not only charged with positive energy, but I had amazing and inspired new insights for product ideas, AND I had several inbound requests for big time joint ventures.  Wow.  But that’s not all.  A little later in the morning I ran it again while I was training (exercise). UNBELIEVABLE results,  more energy, more power, faster recovery.  It is my new secret weapon. You’re amazing. Thank you!”

That’s what Steve Little said.

But back to me and how I learned to attract more money.

The number one thing I did was get coaching. I talk about this a lot in my book The Attractor Factor.

Clearly having a coach to help me see my own thought patterns and then release them was the number one thing I did to transform my prosperity.

If you’re skeptical, consider:

I was working hard, taking action, maintaining my vision and intention for decades.

I was doing all the right things.

Yet success eluded me.

It would still be eluding me today had I not taken care of the only thing in my way: my own mind.

If you want to attract more money, too, then you have to begin on the inside. Make the change there and the outer will change, almost by magic.

But remember, even magic takes a magician.

That magician is you.

Ao Akua,


PS — I started my own coaching program because I knew it changed my life and could change yours, too. If you want to get on track and clear yourself for success, go see It’s real magic. 🙂

PPS – Don’t make excuses. If you judge me or my coaching program (or anyone or anything else that is trying to help you), then you are just like I was thirty years ago: blaming the world for your lack. The world doesn’t need to change for you to be successful. You do. If you don’t go into Miracles Coaching, at least do something to improve your mind and go for your dreams. Dare something worthy. And do it now.

    In your program the missing secret, you talk and discuss how to draw things into your life. I agree that we create what we have. I have used the Hopono…. mehtods and find them to be very powerfull. However, you also talk of the importance of giving of yourself and the flow that you receive from what your heart genuinly gives. To this, in the program, you speak of acting upon ideas as they come. I have sent a letter to you personally, all I have received was an auto response. I know you are quite busy, but hopefully you can find my email and get a chance to read it iver because the missing secret has lead to something I feel could benifit both of us as well as help many others. Thank You for your time

    I signed up with Joe’s Miracles Coaching program about a month ago. With the help of my wonderful coach I’m discovering my limiting beliefs and melting them away. And as more blocks disappear more miracles appear!

    It’s an awesome program.

    If you’re wondering whether it’s for you, if you’re read Joe’s blogs about Miracles Coaching and thought ‘It sounds good but I’m just not sure’ then I can tell you it is.

    Go for it!

    Hey Joe,

    Absolutlely love your work and what you’re doing. The world needs to know more about this information.

    Like you, im also manifesting a TON of money. Im also getting it all at once too 😉
    I AM THAT winner of the Mega Millions lottery.

    But im feeling stuck in some ways. It’s not because of the limiting beliefs you listed above, but I do think that I have a few.

    1) Unconsciously I think I could believe money is hard to get.
    2) My subconscious still has trouble with the idea that you don’t have to give up one thing to get another. I have tried manifesting small amounts of money for instance and it hasn’t worked, Probably because my unconscious self believed i’d have to give up the idea of the fortune.

    3) Sometimes I also put time limits on getting what I want.
    4) I may be focusing too much on the Way im going to get what I want. Im a very analytical person, so for example visualizing the joy I would get from receiving money would bring up the question of where im getting it from, and that spoils it.

    Im absolutely certain of having my money. There’s no doubt about that. I guess maybe im not thinking of having it in the present tense though (which is extremely hard to do because honestly my life wouldnt change too much).

    I am also emotionally blocked, because I live in a stressful environment, so it’s extremely hard to conjure any emotion in my mind to go with my visualizations. And that has me a little concerned because Abraham-Hicks explained that the emotions were the key to manfiesting.

    But I do believe without a doubt I’ll get what I need just in time, because god always delivers on his promises. Joel Osteen taught me that. And I am in a position to Need the money, so it is coming imminently.

    But about what I said with the subconscious block of me thinking I need to give up one thing to get another… it would be alot better if I could have like $1000 or $2000 in the meantime to smooth over my needs.

    But I think that manifestation is getting blocked because my subconscious mind thinks by accepting that I would be giving up the better deal. I wish I could tell it I can have both.

    Thank you, Joe! I live in Russia. Have Here loved film “the Secret”. The People come into play. Is very important. I to their own courses, training often use Your quotings. Once again thank you! 😀

    Everything you are doing and sharing reflects for me the positive changes that ARE multiplying in our world NOW – showing that more and more people are changing their thought processes to make this happen, and many due to your inspiration! Thank You!!

    Dear Joe,
    Thank you much for the insight and inspiration. I’ve been listening to your clearing audio on a daily basis while I work and enjoy it very much… it has a calming effect, makes me feel lighter, makes me smile 🙂 The best happened when my brother visited from out of town last week… he said he’s not seen me this motivated and calm in a long time! And believe me, he won’t say anything he doesn’t mean. After the many challenges I’ve had in my life in recent years, I finally feel I’m moving towards my goals.
    Thank you, Joe!

    Hi Joe,
    Very happy that you’ve gotten all you desire. I’ve followed you for the last 7 years! Hooray for you!

    So my deal with beliefs and illusions. My belief to let go of is this…Money is unnecessary. There is another way. I know it’s where we’re going … i feel it.
    So until that arrives how do i let this go so that i can receive and give all that i desire?

  11. June 2, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Dear Joe, I think your great. In fact, I have a vision book and you are in it (its like a vision board only with several pages and in a beautiful binder). You are one of 5 people that remind me of the different aspects I want to develop more in myself. By your picture (from the cover of attrator factor), I have the words, “vulnerability, put yourSELF out THERE & don’t be afraid to MARKET YOURSELF. We actually met about 2 years ago at a hypnosis convention in Mass. I think it was the last one you were going to be attending. But, I’m sure you meet so many people, you wouldn’t remember. But, it was there that I felt your integrity. I believe that you REALLY do desire to help people.
    I believe wholeheartedly in the law of attraction and I’ve attracted quite a bit of tough stuff in my life over the last couple of years. Don’t want to bore you with those detalis, so suffice it to say, this has been a TRUE growing period for me in many many ways. If you get a chance, please mention me in your prayers. I’ve done a lot of clearing on myself but it appears my transformation is not yet complete. I know I’ll get through it all in the end, but the now is sometimes hard. Thanks for all of your continuing encouragment. You have been a great source of inspiration:), Norma

    I occasionally visit your blog because of The Secret and your helpful book, “Hypnotic Writing”.

    You clearly have a lot to share and teach.


    I must tell you what a turnoff it is to have to endure your constant, constant, constant shameless self-promotion and boasting. Is it possible for you to write a book or blog post without plugging one of your websites, or audio programs or books in every paragraph? I would be so much more likely to actually BUY your material if you didn’t make me pay for it over and over and over again buy forcing me to slog through all the BS searching for your pearls of wisdom.

    Come on Joe! You can be so much better than the snake-oil salesman you continuously reveal yourself to be. I want to be your fan. I want to learn from you. Stop making me work so hard for it – and stop turning me off! Be human, have some humility, and QUIT trying to sell me something!

  13. June 2, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    as always GREAT pearls of wisdom

  14. June 2, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    Dear Joe,

    Although I probably shouldn’t have, I took a little break from listening to the Clearing Audio at night. I felt like I’d been steeped “enough” and wanted to try “flying without a net”. Big mistake, I think. Lately I’ve noticed my evil little self-sabotaging brain has been at it again—whispering the limiting beliefs. Only it’s sneaky now—it seems to know that I can successfully corral it during the day when I’m conscious; but at night, once I’m asleep…

    That’s when I wake bolt upright to the chatter in my brain that has been working overtime while I sleep, unconscious to the world. I wonder if there is a way to set my cell phone MP3 player to loop the Clearing Audio all night long? It seems to be the only thing able to guard my thoughts for me while I sleep—which is good, because it seems that’s the period of time it’s most dangerous to let my thoughts go unmonitored.

  15. June 2, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    I’m new to your site, but think you’re right on target. I’ve learned how to recognize negative thinking when it appears and change it to positive. I literally visualize moving from a mucky, yucky stream of negativity into a calm, warm, peaceful, clear, pristine stream of positive thoughts.

    Hi Joe,
    Thank you for clearing the myth that to be spiritual you have to go without. Twenty years ago I had that put in my head so needless to say the energy work I loved doing was lacking also. I stopped doing what I loved. I didn’t want to live in a state of lack but it was too late I was already there! I still don’t know how I arrived at your Attract Wealth Teleseminar #1 I’m sticking with Magick hehe. I purchased Money Beyond Belief today & I’m still zooming from it. There are no words to discribe how wonderful it feels to be unstuck! Thank you Kind Sir!! I look foreward to having a cigar with you & using my own golden lighter!:wink:
    Love & Happy Thoughts

  17. June 3, 2008 at 5:37 am

    What a wonderful post Joe! Thank you!

    I am “clearing” right now.. I love the Clearing Audio! One can get addicted to it!

    Tidbits like:
    “You are the masterpiece of your own life”
    “The world is the human emotions pushed out”
    “I am always raising my threshold of deservedness”
    “I love myself”
    “I’m completely satisfied, I just want more!”

    Are all dancing through my mind, clearing, clearing, clearing.. against the backdrop of binaurals and Pat’s delicious music.

    Thank you Joe for discovering the space of loving and appreciating yourself for in doing so you create the space in which we all can love and appreciate ourselves.

    Much Love, Appreciation and Joy!

    Hi, Joe Dr. Vitale.
    This is Ansel S.Konique who is one of your big fan of you from S.Korea.
    I’ve been reading your books which are ‘Attract Factor, Hypnotic writing, Ho’oponopono, The key and etc(can’t remember title as English..) After ‘The Secret’, you are the most impressed person to me in that video.Unfotunately,can not read or watch your rest of yours because rest of them are not translated in Korean. Even though I understand English, can not order you books and media coz I do not have any credits card. I am truly studying and learning of motivation thing and the things what you are doing now. You inspired me all the time. Thank you very much.

    Currently, I’m in Australia and going back to Korea end of this year, and I am going to notice you something about your books between English version of ‘The Key’ and Korean version of ‘The Key’

    I found that there are missing contents in Korean version of ‘The Key’
    You mentioned about ‘EFT and Nevillize’ in the book but in Korean version, I can not find at all of those articles. Well, I would like to let you know Koreans are missing great knowledges from you. I do not knot what happen in Korean version of ‘The key’. 😛 And could you recommend more books about Ho’oponopono please? It works well!!!!! Fabulous!!!

    Thank you Dr. Joe Vitale

    It’s amazing really. Everyone of us by default play out these self-defeating thought processes.

    Meditation can be a big help, along with the practice of mindfulness. These help a person develop the ability to sit back and watch his or her thoughts and emotions in action; it’s like watching a movie where you are partially in control but partially just along for the ride!

    And once you become mindful of your thoughts and emotions I believe you are in an empowered position to actually make changes. Thanks Joe for an awesome blog and many other works that are helping to change my life!

    Hi Joe,

    It truly is amazing when you change your mind from negative to positive! About a week ago I was dealt a bit of a blow – after getting excited that sales where up this year – my accountant called me to to say they where down by 2K!! I was gutted and spent the next 2 days feeling like it was time to throw the towel in. Feeding my mind with lots of negative thoughts!!
    But alas I remembered my Zero Limits book which I got back off the shelf and spent the next 2 days saying thank you to everything and one of my favorite affirmations which is ‘everything is coming to me easily and effortlessly’. And what do you know I picked up 3 new clients in the space of week! What can I say – spooky but it really does work!

    As they say in Ireland Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeers!
    Big love Debbie

    hi Joe.

    The clearing audio is a very good way to help people dissolve,clear limiting beliefs,and the affirmations are brilliant.I love the music.The only part which I dont think is very effective,is the usage of binaural beats.For brain entrainment monaural and isochronic tones are far better.There is scientific proof to support this.

    Please check Quantum mind Power,called Morry method,Dr Robert Anthony uses these brain entrainment.Morry Zelcovitch creater of quantum mind power is a certified brain entrainment engineer,and theres only few of them in the world.

    Dear Joe,
    I absolutely believe in this stuff, with the law of attraction. However I am not attracting what I need. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Here are two examples: Okay, so I watched the secret and immediately began everyday asking for $100,000 in my account by the end of the following month. So a few weeks go by, and my boss signs our whole office up for this get motivated seminar, I go and listen to this guy speak about making your money make money for you, bla bla, bla, and he offers a classs that will teach you just that. Needless to say I go pay $100 and sign up for this class. while at the class they inform us that we will all be getting pretend accounts with a $100,000 “pretend” dollars in them. It wasnt till a week later that it dawned on me. what do u think? The other example just happened today. For the past month or so I have been asking for $1200 by hte end of this month, I need the money to pay off my credit card (that my husband doesnt know about) and have money to give him a 30th b-day party. Well We are short on money and have some bills that are piling up, so my husband came home and said make a list of what needs to be paid, and lets just take the money from our mutual fund to pay this stuff off. So we sit down together and add up all of the stuff and the amount is $1200.00. This $1200 doesnt help me, I need that from somewhere else, somewhere that he doesnt know about. So what am I doing wrong, and what can I do to change the way things are happeneing for me?

  28. August 18, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Hey Joe,
    Your “Attracting Money” audio program is one of the best I’ve ever heard on how to attract money. I love the story about the pencil especially. Gratitude is the key – and I’ve also found that you need a few tricks up your sleeve about “letting go and trusting” when times get tough. Gratitude works, for sure, but it doesn’t always stop the fear and the worrying.

    You have to figure out a way to “let go and let God” – in all things – as I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s figuring out how to do that in the midst of hard times that’s the challenge!

    Thanks for all the great work you do.
