Neville Goddard is a new thought author who wrote ‘The Law of Assumption’ which is lesson 2 out of his Five Lessons.
When I first heard of the ‘Law of Assumption’ I assumed (and got it wrongish) that the assumptions where from where you are.
For example, if you want a new car and you assume you’re going to have to pay for it, so you look at your savings and then into getting credit for it. The assumption is that this is your only way of getting a new car and if your finances are bad, then you’ll assume you can’t get a new car and therefore block the energy for it it come in.
There are other ways you could get a new car from winning it to someone gifting you a car, to attracting the money to buy one out with your assumptions.
The Law of Assumption is not this. However, I’d like you to keep this in mind when you are looking to manifest anything.
When our egos kick in and sabotage our desires by keeping us wrapped up in cotton wool rather than helping us achieve our desires, just be aware of your thoughts.
These thoughts are usually subconscious and you’re probably not aware of some of them. These are the ones that are holding you back.
The Law of Assumption
What Neville Goddard means when he talks about The Law of Assumption is that assumptions harden into fact.
It’s similar and better way to say ‘fake it ’til you make it’ – which I believe is a terrible analogy because even the phrase is telling your brain that it’s fake. Assumptions harden into fact is FAR better.
This is very similar to what Abraham Hicks talks about in the Law of Attraction. You have to BELIEVE with all your senses that you have achieved what you want so that your subconsious will believe it to be true and therefore bring it into your reality.
