Neville Goddard was one of the most influential Law of Attraction teachers of the 20th century. His writings are thought-provoking and intuitive, and combine a knowledge of the laws of energy with radical re-interpretations of Christian symbolism. His work combines psychology and spiritual themes with practice exercises and techniques to manifest the world of your dreams, and raise your vibration to match the level of your desires.
Here is a selection of 21 of the most famous inspirational quotes from Goddard. I hope you enjoy!
On Imagination and Consciousness
“An awakened imagination works with a purpose. It creates and conserves the desirable, and transforms or destroys the undesirable.”
“Nothing comes from without; all things come from within – from the subconscious”
“Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less than his consciousness objectified.
Assuming The Wish Fulfilled
“Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled and observe the route that your attention follows.”
“Dare to believe in the reality of your assumption and watch the world play its part relative to its fulfillment.”
“Love is not love if there is no beloved.”
“Love is our birthright. Love is the fundamental necessity of our life. Do not go seeking for that which you are. Those who go seeking for love only make manifest their own lovelessness and the loveless never find love. Only the loving find love and they never have to seek for it.”
“If you assume success and persist in that assumption you cannot fail. That is the law.”
“There is nothing God cannot do! Do not think that one who is fabulously rich has an influx of spirit which differs from yours. He is imagining wealth, either wittingly or unwittingly; but you can do it knowingly.”
“If he does not know what he is doing, he can lose his wealth and not know how to recover it. I am asking you, regardless of your financial situation, to assume wealth, knowingly.”
From Your Faith Is Your Fortune
“Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.”
“If you judge after appearances, you will continue to be enslaved by the evidence of your senses.”
“All conceptions are limitations of the conceiver.”
“Man fails to do the works of Jesus Christ because he attempts to accomplish them from his present level of consciousness. You will never transcend your present accomplishments through sacrifice and struggle. Your present level of consciousness will only be transcended as you drop the present state and rise to a higher level. You rise to a higher level of consciousness by taking your attention away from your present limitations and placing it upon that which you desire to be. Do not attempt this in day-dreaming or wishful thinking but in a positive manner. Claim yourself to be the thing desired. I AM that; no sacrifice, no diet, no human tricks. All that is asked of you is to accept your desire. If you dare claim it, you will express it.”
From Feeling Is The Secret
“Sleep conceals the creative act while the objective world reveals it. In sleep man impresses the subconscious with his conception of himself.”
“Consciousness is the one and only reality, not figuratively but actually. This reality may for the sake of clarity be likened unto a stream which is divided into two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. In order to intelligently operate the law of consciousness it is necessary to understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious is personal and selective; the subconscious is impersonal and non-selective. The conscious is the realm of effect; the subconscious is the realm of cause. These two aspects are the male and female divisions of consciousness. The conscious is male; the subconscious is female. The conscious generates ideas and impresses these ideas on the subconscious; the subconscious receives ideas and gives form and expression to them. By this law-first conceiving an idea and then impressing the idea conceived on the subconscious-all things evolve out of consciousness;”
