Magically manifesting money, seemingly out of no where. The idea sounds amazing, doesn’t it? One of those “too good to be true” sorta things.
Recently I connected with Cassie Parks, an author and international speaker. As per Cassie’s own words, she used her love for real estate and the Law of Attraction to create financial independence and retire at the age of 32.

Knowing just those couple of facts about her drove me to read her newest book, Manifest $10,000. I’m not going to lie, I was hoping this book would be the magic tool I needed. Maybe it would teach me a trick or share a few tips that would allow us to finally put an end to living from paycheck to paycheck.
In this book Cassie explains the theory behind using the Law of Attraction to, basically, attract money to you. In a sense, manifesting money out of no where. She says it’s all about changing the way you think. If you can do that, the Universe will begin blessing you with money.
This is a small book consisting of 7 chapters and 97 pages. By no means a novel! It is simple and it is to the point.
Cassie Parks shares with you stories from people who claim to have, with her help, manifested thousands of dollars in various ways. She also explains how manifesting money is really all about your mindset and briefly explains the 8 phases involved in creating the momentum and success you need to attract money to you.
I found this book very interesting when I first began reading it. Since then I’ve finished it twice and I have mixed feelings about it.
A part of me feels that the concept of manifesting money seems like a childish dream. Honestly, I’d never heard anything about using the Law of Attraction to bring more money into your life prior to reading this book.
The stories she shared didn’t help me much, either. Only one person seemed to “attract” money to him, that guy won money at the casino. One could easily argue that everyone else either worked their butts off to earn the extra money or were willing to accept what some might consider a handout from family or friends.
When I asked Cassie about this, she simply said I was right. “What you believe is what is true for you,” she said, “Everyone gets to think and believe what they want and I’m not here to change anyone’s mind.”
Cassie Parks says she grew up hearing her dad say that he got lucky multiple times in life and this luck led to his successful career. She couldn’t understand how a person could just “get lucky” that many times, so she began to create her own luck.
For me, the Law of Attraction is simple to believe. Let’s say I set a goal to get 100,000 readers to my blog within 90 days. Let’s say this goal was something I wanted more than anything else. Something I dreamed of all the time. Constantly imagining what it would feel like to reach that goal. I can easily see myself striving for this. Working hard to make it happen and achieving it if it’s what I really wanted.
Would I consider it a manifestation? Would I think it happened simply because the Universe did it’s magic? For me, likely not. I would most likely believe it happened because I made it happen. I put in the effort, the Universe didn’t change simply because my mindset changed.
That’s probably my biggest problem with this entire book. I agree with the idea that you need to be in the right mindset to make things in your life work in a positive way. I’m just very skeptical of the idea that your mindset causes the Universe to change course and create positive changes in your life that never would have happened otherwise. I just have a hard time seeing it that way, especially when it comes to winning money.
Cassie teaches a course that promises to help teach people how to manifest money, the goal being $10k within 90 days. To be honest, this book felt a bit like a sales pitch to gain students in her program. When I asked Parks about this, she said joining her program is not necessary. Although there are many success stories thanks to her program, she says a lot of people have only needed to follow what is written within this book in order to begin manifesting money. She told me about Jason who manifested $10k worth of materials, Caryn who manifested over $14k in 50 days and Eliza who manifested $10k in 24 hours. All 3 people simply followed what Cassie outlines in Manifest $10,000.
There’s one thing that happened to me that I think I need to share with you, too. Within a week of reading this book I managed to stumble into $150 that I wouldn’t normally see. I won $50. The other $100 came from a sponsored post I wrote after being contacted by a company. Normally I’m the one contacting companies, so this was a big deal. Was it thanks to Cassie and her book or was it dumb luck and hard work? I don’t really know for sure.
In conclusion, I have to say I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a little more opened minded than myself, who thinks the Law of Attraction really can help you bring more money into your life. It’s a nice, short read and Cassie Parks never beats around the bush. She gives you the instruction you need to make the changes in your life that she says will attract money to you. Manifest $10,000 left me interested in learning more about the idea of manifesting money. It also caused me to seriously consider enrolling in her program. The course only costs $1 to enroll, so it’s really hard to argue!
