Neville Goddard – The Power of Awareness
This past week I picked up another book by Neville Goddard. This time it was The Power Of Awareness. Neville was a pioneer of what we today call “New Thought”. In his early lectures and books he dealt solely with what he called The Law, the technique of creating one’s physical reality through imagining.
He wrote books and lectured widely up to the time of death in 1972.
The power of his writings is in his unique way of presenting the ideas which can be quite slippery at first. As we are not used to thinking about “how” we think… we simply are content with thinking. As Neville points out, it is in the concepts we believe to be true about us and others that creates what we will see in the world.
Neville Goddard Insights
The basis for his teaching as well as his life centers on the understanding of proper use of the imagination to create or better, to manifest what ever you want in the world. Understanding that everything you want is already here, it’s not going to come from Mars or any where other than here. For you to experience it, you must get in alignment with the results of what you want. You do this by first picturing you having the desire in your life. Second get the feeling of the desire or the wish as already being fulfilled and life FROM that concept being true. With consistent feeling this in your imagination and then taking it into the world, you will begin seeing and experiencing that which you are feeling.
“Form a mental image, a picture of the state desired, of the person you want to be. Concentrate your attention upon the feeling that you are already that person. First, visualize the picture in your consciousness. Then feel yourself to be in that state as though it actually formed your surrounding world. By your imagination that which was a mere mental image is changed into a seemingly solid reality. The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well-sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the object to be accomplished. It cannot be emphasized too much that, by creating an ideal within your mental sphere, by assuming that you are already that ideal, you identify yourself with it and thereby transform yourself into its image [thinking from the ideal instead of thinking of the ideal. Every state is already there as “mere possibilities” as long as we think of them, but as overpoweringly real when we think from them]. “ From the Power of Awareness
Neville and the Bible
I will not attempt to quote hundreds of bibilical quotes Neville has used to teach this from the bible other than one that has had me find success in 2 others businesses when i repeated and lived from this idea…. “Those things what so ever you desire, when ye pray, believe ye have already received them and ye shall have them.” Straight forward stuff…. what ever you want, believe you already have and you will have.
Want to find out how to achieve results you’ve yet to achieve, well it’s not in doing more, it having a clear idea of what you want, using your imagination to feel it is already fulfilled and live your life from that belief. You will see your dreams become reality!
