If you browse the manifesting community on social media, oftentimes, you’ll run into someone’s question that goes something like this; “what do I have to do to manifest…?” And to such a question, you might want to give the person a few cool techniques and other tools that will help them manifest their desire. But at the end of the day, there is one thing and one thing ONLY truly needed to manifest, and that thing is the assumption that it’s done. As long as you can assume that your desire is yours, it is yours. It is done. On the other hand, no matter how many techniques you are using, if you keep on assuming the opposite of having your desire, your assumption will win. Therefore, beware of your assumption, because what you assume is what manifests.
I speak to a lot of people on a daily basis, and each one of those people has at least one specific burning desire, something that they truly want to be or have, but what I’m commonly finding is that what they are presently assuming and what they are desiring is not quite in sync. This article is meant to help such people. So, if this is you, keep on reading.
Why you Must be Aware of What you are Assuming
All transformation begins with an intense burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the ‘renewing of the mind’ is desire. You must want to be different and intend to be before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact. You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are already that person. If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable. – Neville Goddard
The law of assumption is spiritual law, it’s the law by which everything becomes and exists. There is an infinite number of things that exist in your life, right now, based on your assumptions. Most people are totally unaware of this, but this is simply a fact. Things exist and happen in your world based on your assumptions that they should, so they must. Change that assumption and that ‘fact’ will change, even when it comes to the most entrenched beliefs such as aging, health, personality, and behavior, for example. None of those things are “set in stone” as it were, they can be changed and manipulated according to your assumption about them.
To take a very common example, why do you think that most people who go on a diet to lose weight gain the weight back as soon as they stop their diet? It’s because it’s not the diet that helps them lose weight because food is food, it’s the assumption that the diet will help them lose weight that makes them lose weight. Thus, most people who come out of such a diet start gaining the weight back soon after. And this is happening because of, yet, another assumption which is that without the diet they can’t possibly keep their weight down. The truth of the matter is that no diet in the world can truly help you gain or lose weight, but it’s your assumption that does. Food is food and calories are calories, and they will affect your body according to your assumption.
And the same goes for everything single thing that the 3D world and its society have trained you to believe. All such beliefs have become assumptions, and this is why it is affecting you right now in one way or another.
The good news is that we CAN use assumptions for our benefits. We can use assumptions to create and recreate our whole world exactly how we want it to be. And we can do this by changing our assumption about that specific matter.
You Current Reality is Based on Your Current Assumptions
Dare to believe in the reality of your assumption and watch the world play its part relative to its fulfillment. – Neville Goddard
The main reason why you don’t have your desire right now, it’s because you have contradicting assumptions. You can’t seem to be able to lose weight, because your assumption on your current weight is stronger than your desire to lose that weight. You are having a hard time to manifest your sp because your assumption that your sp “isn’t here” is stronger than your belief that it is done. As Neville said, “you must make your future dream a present fact” in order to get that ‘dream’ to manifest in your 3D world. When an “assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling” by universal law, it has to “harden into fact.” But when your assumption differs from your desire and the feeling of having or being what you want, your assumption will manifest by default.
It is your job, as a conscious manifestor, to make the decision that your desire is yours. If you are familiar with the law of assumption and the teaching of Neville Goddard you know that there is no such thing as fate. As the God of your reality (the operant power), you know that you have choices in life and it’s up to you to manifest your desire or not. Even a desire is not imposed on you, you can either decide to receive it or deny it because there’s no such thing as written destiny upon which you are powerless and must act upon. You can make choices, but there is no pressure, either way, your God-Self is ready to experience whatever you choose to experience. But when do choose to manifest a desire, however, you must assume all the way that it is yours. But how do you do that, you might ask?
Watch Your Thoughts
Your assumption, to be effective, cannot be a single isolated act, it must be a maintained attitude of the wish fulfilled. – Neville Goddard
If you are aware of who you truly are, you know that you are not your thoughts, you just have thoughts, and since you are not your thoughts it means that you can take a step back and observe them. By getting into the habit of observing your thoughts, rather than being lost in them, you will be able to see more clearly what your thoughts are all about and what your true assumptions are.
To take a very common example, let’s take the all so common sp. If you are manifesting a specific person, no matter what techniques you are using, they are meant to help you to assume that you already are in that relationship that you want so much. It should be your assumption. Even though your sp might not be in your 3D life yet, your feelings and thoughts should be of someone who knows that it’s done. That’s called an assumption.
However, if you are anxiously waiting for a text or call, if you are getting nervous or even distressed because your sp hasn’t reached out to you in 4 days, if you are craving for that movement, etc… All of that comes from your thoughts. But if you observe those thoughts, however, you will see how your assumption is NOT matching your desire. You may be doing your SATS, saying your affirmations, and maybe other things, but your assumption is not in sync with your desire in this case. Because it was, your thoughts would be different. Thus the need to watch your thoughts and be honest with yourself, because your thoughts will let you know what your true assumption is.
Your Assumption Matters More than Your Circumstances
Disregard appearances, conditions, in fact, all evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire. Rest in the assumption that you are already what you want to be, for in that determined assumption you and your Infinite Being are merged in creative unity, and with your Infinite Being all things are possible. – Neville Goddard
If you’ve been in the manifesting community for a while, I am sure that you are familiar with the statement “circumstances don’t matter.” The reason why you hear conscious manifestors saying that circumstances don’t matter it’s because they truly don’t. And the reason why they don’t it’s because circumstances are past manifestations. Since there is a lag between the time you imagine something and its fulfillment, what you are experiencing today in your 3D world was manifested prior and it has ‘harden into fact’ in your reality. This is the case for both wanted and unwanted things.
However, that ‘reality‘, that ‘circumstance‘ has no power of its own because it is ‘dead‘ as it were. So do not waste your time and energy fighting your circumstances in 3D. What you should do, however, is to imagine what you want and assume that it is done. Because it’s in your imagination and assumption that the real power is. Assume right now that you have your desire. “Assume that you are already what you want” and you and your God-Self within will manifest what you are assuming to be true.
