Neville Goddard’s “Smell the Money” $$$ Manifestation Techniques

Manifesting Money with Odor

In many of mystic Neville Goddard’s lectures (see eleven excerpts below) he mentions the odor of money and odor in general as an aid to manifestation.

He mentions:

1. Smelling money as a technique for manifesting money.

Well, how do I believe? I’ve got to imagine. How can I believe without imagining? Believing what? I’m believing I’m getting this money…that’s what I’m doing. Well, if I’m getting it, will I not do it? Well now, bring all of your senses to bear upon the act, for Imagination is spiritual sensation…. If I put a piece of money before your nose and you closed your eyes, what are you smelling? You know exactly what you’re smelling…it’s money. You can smell it. So, all the senses were brought to bear upon this event.

2. Money has it’s own odor (and some scientist have figured it out)

Money has an odor all of its own. Blindfold yourself and smell a dozen different pieces of paper. Make one of them a dollar, five-, or ten-dollar bill, and the moment it reaches your nose you will know it is money, for there is something different about it.

Everything has an odor. My brother Victor is a successful businessman. When I questioned him about his success, he said: “I love the odor of business. When I open the store in the morning, I love the smell emitting there.”

3. Odor is as unique as a thumbprint

For that reason can make your imagining specific. As Neville says, ” Enter the image of the wish fulfilled, then give it sensory vividness and tones of reality by mentally acting as you would act were it a physical fact.”

My dear, I believe in being as specific as one can be. I just knew what I wanted so often on certain things, and wanted it in detail, and got it. If man cannot be that specific, all well and good. Take an end, an overall end. But if you really are specific, God is very definite. Outline is perfect in God’s world. Look at the thumbprint. Not only a man’s thumbprint differs from all thumbprints but his odor—or the bloodhound couldn’t find you.

4. After the act of Imagination to carry the experience around like a fragrant odor.

“After you have assumed the feeling of the wish fulfilled, do not close the experience as you would a book, but carry it around like a fragrant odor.”

The Science

“Listen to your inner voice, because your inner voice might be your nose telling you what to do.” – Johan Lundström, a neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden

The Nose Knows

A Discover Magazine article “The Sense of Smell in Humans is More Powerful Than We Think” report that we can distinguish at least 1 trillion different odors — up from previous estimates of a mere 10,000.

“Unlike our other senses, the olfactory nerves do not proceed directly to the brain’s thalamus, the gateway to consciousness. Instead, information feeds from the nose to cortical areas to arouse emotions and memories without our awareness. When it comes to smells, people can be influenced and not realize it.”

Neville Goddard's "Smell the Money" $$$ Manifestation Techniques“A hefty pile of evidence suggests that emotions have a scent. What’s more, such smelled emotions may be contagious. Say you go out to meet a friend who had been watching funny videos on her mobile phone, making her feel happy. As you approach her, you catch a whiff of her scent and automatically smile. But had your friend just watched a scary movie, her body odor would have likely made you feel apprehensive.”

“Meanwhile, smelling the body odor of stressed-out people ups our vigilance, while the odor of people who had just watched something disgusting makes our faces twist in disgust. In fMRI scans, people sniffing the sweat from first-time parachute jumpers lit up the brain’s left amygdala, where basic emotions are processed, suggesting fear is contagious, too.”

“These chemosignals ring an alarm bell in your brain to attract your attention,” Freiherr says. “Maybe you can smell a dangerous place because somebody was there five minutes ago feeling scared.”

Odor Molecules Intricate Neural Code

In “Making Sense of Scents: Smell and the Brain” mentions:

“The complexity of receptors and their interactions with odor molecules are what allow us to detect a wide variety of smells. And what we think of as a single smell is actually a combination of many odor molecules acting on a variety of receptors, creating an intricate neural code that we can identify as the scent of a rose or freshly-cut grass.

“We’re not that acutely aware of our use of olfaction in daily living,” explains Noam Sobel, a scientist who studies smell at the Weizmann Institute of Science. But 5 percent of our DNA is devoted to olfaction, a fact that emphasizes how important our sense of smell is, he said.

Sniffing Out What Money Smells Like

So what does money smell like?

“Dollars are made of cotton and linen, and according to the Treasury’s Bureau of Printing and Engraving, different types of inks are used on different denominations. But really the smell is affected by what the dollar comes in contact with — dirt, sweat and yes, cocaine, acccording to research by the Argonne National Laboratories in Chicago.

In an interview with Stuart Firestein at Columbia University’s Department of Biological Sciences

Dr. Firestein, I’m just curious, how does it work? When the dog smells this money, how does it get from the nose to the brain? What’s happening there?

Firestein: It’s a principle of what we call molecular recognition, which is a big word for something that’s actually quite simple. In the nose of a dog — way back in the nose of a dog — and in a person as well, we have small cells that communicate with our brain. On the surface of those cells are little proteins, which we call receptors. You can think of it as a sort of a lock and a key. The receptors, these proteins, are like a lock. And the odors are like a key. And if the odor fits the receptor just right, the way a key fits a lock, it will activate it. And upon activating it, a signal gets sent to the brain.

Gardner: I take it that different scents affect people in certain ways. Do you think smelling money could do something to someone — in some positive way, some negative way?

Firestein: Well, it makes me feel a lot better. It’s kind of like new car small. It just gives you that feeling of prosperity, doesn’t it?

The Smell of Money

“Money sniffing is an unknown art. No-one had ever tried to find these aromas,” said Dr Joseph Stetter, of KWJ Engineering.

“We found that US currency emits a wide range of volatile organic compounds that make a ‘fingerprint’ we can identify in less than a minute.”

But a signature common to all of the bills was eventually teased out.

It turns out this odour comes from a set of trace chemicals, including aldehydes, furans and organic acids.

“The amounts are tiny – at best a small fraction of a ppm [part per million]. This presents a formidable analytical challenge,” the researchers say.

So does the “smell of dollars” come from the ink? Or the bank note itself? The precise source is not likely to be revealed in a published scientific journal – for security reasons, the researchers say.

What Gives Money Its Distinctive Smell?

One chemist tried to find out.

“Grab a dollar bill and sniff. What does cash smell like, really?

Marc vom Ende is a senior perfumer at German fragrance house Symrise, and he started working on nailing down the scent of paper U.S. currency when artist Mike Bouchet commissioned the search two years ago. Vom Ende said the aroma has a base of cotton, ink and soap—with notes of metallic cashiers, leather wallets and less pleasant substances..

Mr. vom Ende took six months before he felt he had re-created the smell of freshly minted money, relying on several colleagues known as “evaluators” to sniff-and-approve his efforts. It took an additional eight months before he felt he had conjured money that had been in heavy circulation.

“Money takes something from everyone who uses it,” vom Ende said. “That makes it crazy complex, but that also makes it interesting to detect.”

The scent’s ingredients he found were mostly aliphatic aldehydes, which are prevalent in soap or linen, and alkanes, which are found in ink, in addition to plenty of “animal-derived” compounds found in body oils or secretions (the Journal adds he found “more” evidence of fecal matter than he expected).

“Money is a symbol of power, and yet we never think about how it smells, which I find fascinating,” Mr. Bouchet said. “Even handling money makes people want to buy more luxury goods.”

Smell and Spirituality

Gandha is a Sanskrit word that means “smell,” “odor” or scent.” In the context of Hindu philosophy, it refers to one of the tattvas, which are the aspects or elements of reality. In the Saivism school of Hinduism, there are 36 tattvas.

Gandha refers to the sense of smell, which provides one aspect of the soul’s external experiences. One of the five sensations (tanmatras) that form a category of impure tattvas, gandha provides sensory data along with rasa (taste), rupa (form), sparsa (touch) and sabda (sound).

Although, not as common a usage, gandha also refers to an ancient meditative ritual that uses fragrances. Yogis who practice this technique believe that the sense of smell transcends the thinking mind, calming it and helping the yogi enter a deeper state of consciousness. Continued use of such fragrances helps the yogi recall the meditative state and enter into it more quickly.

The Future Smell of Electronic Money

An excerpt from Mark Wagner’s excellent article, “The Smell of Money”

“In a way, electronic currency seems to be what currency was meant to be: a pure, incorporeal, calculatory promised land… like heaven to the soul.

As fintech replaces our physical understanding of money with a conceptual one. As more and more we pay for things with less and less physicality… transferring no physical anything… not even a signed slip of paper… sloughing off even our plastic cards. We will start to think of money in the bank more like electricity in a battery than as gold in a vault. That is, money as an energy capable of performing work rather than as a tangible commodity exchangeable for other commodities.

There will be casualties in our understanding. There will be subconscious, atavistic beliefs about money, which no longer apply to this new form. We will fetishize new aspects of our new money. Perhaps the chirp or bleep of the “transaction completed” prompt will take on new nuance and significance… as the resonant ring of true gold and silver had in previous centuries.

As money continues its ascension to pure spirit, leaving the corporeal world behind, smell will be among the lesser cousins of missed qualities. The imagery on bills and the familiar faces of world leaders… these will become things of the past too. What will our eyes do then? What subconscious roll has that iconography played within us? Images on money have advertised central governments for millennia… since the very first coins were struck.

I miss them already.”

Neville Goddard Lectures Mentioning the Odor of Money

“The Bible is Addressed to the Imagination” (1967)

Well, how do I believe? I’ve got to imagine. How can I believe without imagining? Believing what? I’m believing I’m getting this money…that’s what I’m doing. Well, if I’m getting it, will I not do it? Well now, bring all of your senses to bear upon the act, for Imagination is spiritual sensation. And so, all these things…she played every part. She could hear the paper tear, she could hear that; then she shook the contents out, she heard that; and she felt it, felt the paper, felt the contents. Do you know that money has an odor unlike anything in the world, so you can smell money. If I put a piece of money before your nose and you closed your eyes, what are you smelling? You know exactly what you’re smelling…it’s money. You can smell it. So, all the senses were brought to bear upon this event, and that very week she started working for this party as a seamstress plus designing in part.

“Walk by Faith”

Now, if there is evidence for a thing, does it matter what the world thinks? Could you ever take this lady’s experience from her? No! The truth, experienced by her parallels scripture, for all things are possible to one who believes. How did this lady believe what she was imagining? She did it by bringing forth all of her senses to bear upon this event. Using her sense of hearing, she heard the paper tear. Shaking the contents of the envelope, she heard the money fall on the table. She felt the envelope and saw the bills inside. Do you know, money has an odor unlike anything else? So you can smell money. She determined what she would do if she had the money and she did it.

“The State of Vision”

Money has an odor all of its own. Blindfold yourself and smell a dozen different pieces of paper. Make one of them a dollar, five-, or ten-dollar bill, and the moment it reaches your nose you will know it is money, for there is something different about it.

Everything has an odor. My brother Victor is a successful businessman. When I questioned him about his success, he said: “I love the odor of business. When I open the store in the morning, I love the smell emitting there.”

“Power” (1968)

A. My dear, I believe in being as specific as one can be. I just knew what I wanted so often on certain things, and wanted it in detail, and got it. If man cannot be that specific, all well and good. Take an end, an overall end. But if you really are specific, God is very definite. Outline is perfect in God’s world. Look at the thumbprint. Not only a man’s thumbprint differs from all thumbprints but his odor—or the bloodhound couldn’t find you. Just imagine three-and-a-half billion of us, and no two have the identical odor. No two have the same sound to their voice—similar but not identical. See it on the tape as you speak, and that vibration will record it. You cannot reproduce it. Similar? Yes. No two—you are so unique. You are the only one; therefore you cannot be replaced. There is no one in all eternity that can replace you. That is why you have to be saved, or the Living Temple cannot be completed. You are a stone in this living temple. God was very specific when he made you the unique being that you are. I will not be “lost in the crowd” for the simple reason that God did not lose me in the crowd. I am individualized, and I tend forever and ever towards greater individualization.

“The Living Word”

You can underpay a man, thereby inviting him into an embarrassing state – not realising what you are doing to yourself. In underpaying him, you are sucking his blood; and those who live on blood are, in a sense, the termites of the world. The fleas that live on dogs produce nothing; they only live on the blood of another. Well, in our language, money is the life-blood of the world. When you underpay a man for his services you are taking his blood.

If you could see yourself as the awakened Man sees you, you would be horrified to know what you look like, or smell like. All of the perfumes of Arabia could not stifle the odor which comes from you. To the awakened Man you are a monstrous flea, clothed in human form that people are so proud to touch; and – because it is well known – they will pay $5,000 to hear it speak. It gets everything because it is publicised; but if it took off its mask, those who paid to hear it speak would run for their lives when they saw its true identity.

“The Law and the Promise” (1961)

Imagination is spiritual sensation. Enter the image of the wish fulfilled, then give it sensory vividness and tones of reality by mentally acting as you would act were it a physical fact. Now, this is what I mean by spiritual sensation.

Imagine that you are holding a rose in your hand. Smell it. Do you detect the odor of roses? Well, if the rose is not there, why is its fragrance in the air? Through spiritual sensation — that is — through imaginal sight, sound, scent, taste and touch, you can give to the image sensory vividness.

If you do this, all things will conspire to aid your harvesting and upon reflection you will see how subtle were the threads that led to your goal. You could never have devised the means which your imaginal activity employed to fulfill itself.

If you long to escape from your present sense fixation, to transform your present life into a dream of what might well be, you need but imagine that you are already what you want to be and to feel the way you would expect to feel under such circumstances. Like the make-believe of a child who is remaking the world after its own heart, create your world out of pure dreams of fancy.

Mentally enter into your dream; mentally do what you would actually do, were it physically true. You will discover that dreams are realized not by the rich, but by the imaginative.

“Awakened Imagination” (1954)

If you would assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled more frequently, you would be master of your fate, but unfortunately you shut out your assumption for all but the occasional hour. Practice making real to yourself the feeling of the wish fulfilled.

After you have assumed the feeling of the wish fulfilled, do not close the experience as you would a book, but carry it around like a fragrant odor.

Instead of being completely forgotten, let it remain in the atmosphere communicating its influence automatically to your actions and reactions. A mood, often repeated, gains a momentum that is hard to break or check. So be careful of the feelings you entertain. Habitual moods reveal the state with which you are fused.

“A Lesson in Scripture”

Although all children come into the world seemingly from the womb of woman, no two births really are alike. In fact, the child coming out, though it’s a child, doesn’t have the same thumbprint, doesn’t have the same odor. There is something that is different in the way that it is born.

“Thinking Fourth Dimensionally”

Yet I had to walk the streets of New York as though I walked the streets of Barbados. To one’s imagination all things are possible. I walked, feeling that I was actually walking the streets of Barbados, and in that assumption I could almost smell the odor of the cocoanut lined lanes. I began to create within my mind’s eye the atmosphere I would physically encounter were I in Barbados.

Let us return now to the sense of touch. Think of something that you would touch if your desired were objectively real. Money, for instance, can be touched and it even has an odor. These are the senses Isaac used. When Jacob came close, Isaac touched him and said: “You feel like my son Esau and you have his odor.” Then he blessed Jacob and, strangely enough, when Isaac discovered he was self-deceived he could not reverse his blessing.

“The Ultimate Sense”

Now, while you are still here you have needs which must be met and perhaps desires yet to be fulfilled, so I urge you to use the law by assuming that you have them, for your assumption is the beginning of your dream. Although your reasonable mind and your outer senses deny it your persistence will harden your assumption into fact. I have watched it happen unnumbered times. Your noble dreams will not interfere with the basic dream that is taking place in you, so take your wonderful dreams and persist in them. Walk as though they were true. Try to touch them and give them reality. If you can use the sense of odor try to detect it.

One night a lady decided to test me by embracing a huge bouquet of roses. She caught the aroma of the rose and completely saturated herself with it, then she dropped the thought. This lady lived in the Waldorf Towers, and when she returned to her room the following evening she discovered three dozen roses had been placed there. It appeared that the Queen Mother was in New York City and had attended a banquet in her honor. Special roses were grown and [brought] there for her pleasure. The next day the maitre d’ sent three dozen roses to this lady’s room. She put her sense of smell to the test and within 24 hours her room was filled with roses.

So when you know what you want, construct a scene which would imply that you have it. Enter the scene by touching the articles there, listening to the sounds that may be heard, seeing with your spiritual eye, and smelling its odor with your spiritual nose. Bring all of your senses to bear upon the scene implying the fulfillment of your dream.

“The Game of Life”

Try it just for fun. Take an object and thank the being within you for the gift. Then thank the one on the outside, for within and without are vicarious, as is life; for by observing an odor, a look, or a feeling within, you will discover you are life itself.

Yes, life is a game. Paul calls it a race, saying: “I have finished the race, I have fought the good fight and I have kept the faith.” I call it a game. Both are competitive; but the opposition is with self and not with another, for there is no other. Do not try to get even with another. Grant him the right to use the same law to achieve his goal, even though it may be similar to yours. The knowledge you share will never rob you. Simply determine your goal. Feel you have achieved it and cast your bread upon the water. Then drop it and let the game of life be fulfilled in your world.
