According to Neville Goddard, assumption is the key to manifesting our desires. He believed that ASSUME THE FEELING of already having what we desire is the most potent creative force at our disposal. FEELING – is with all your 5 senses. Eg: feel holding a tennis ball in one hand & a orange in another . As if you are holding it now feel, touch, see, taste.
By embodying the desired state, we align ourselves with the reality we wish to experience. Goddard emphasized that it is not enough to merely wish for something; we must enter into a state of consciousness where the wish fulfilled is accepted as true. This requires a deep sense of conviction and unwavering faith in the power of our assumptions.It’s like you are not watching a movie on the screen you are the actor director in the movie.

Another fundamental teaching of Neville Goddard is the concept of “ LIVING IN THE END “He encouraged individuals to focus on the desired outcome rather than getting caught up in the 3D. Totally ignoring the 3D . By mentally residing in the state of the wish fulfilled, with FEELINGS to it. Eg: You want a travel to a beach with your spouse, see yourself with your spouse in that destination. You are walking on the beach hand in hand. You can feel the gentle wind carress your skin water, sand moving through your feet. It is full moon & you both are having dinner & soft violin is being played. The more you juice the feeling from the end – imaginating , the creative forces of the universe to bring our desires into reality.
