Consciousness and The Law of Attraction
In this book, Neville Goddard guides you to understand the true substance that all life is derived from, consciousness. When you are able to become objective and release feeling victimized by life, you are then able to tap into your most powerful state of working with the law of attraction.
Neville speaks about how I AM consciousness can never be erased despite all external changes there is always the internal awareness of existence. Taping into this substance will remind you that your beliefs mold the substance of consciousness into it.

The Power of Awareness Excerpts
This book was written in 1952 and guides you through the unveiling of the substance of life, consciousness. Neville Goddard teaches the actual steps to manifestation which include being ready to let the you that lives the reality wanting your dreams to die in order for the you that lives the life of your dreams to take over.
Chapter One: I Am
There is no one that is not all that is, for consciousness, though expressed in an infinite series of levels, is not divisional. There is no real separation or gap in consciousness. I AM cannot be divided. I may conceive myself to be a rich man, a poor man, a beggar man or a thief, but the center of my being remains the same, regardless of the concept I hold of myself. At the center of manifestation, there is only one I AM manifesting in legions of forms or concepts of itself and “I am that I am”.
And while I AM is infinite, you, by your concept of yourself, are displaying only a limited aspect of the infinite I AM.
Chapter Two: CONSCIOUSNESS
Therefore, you must turn from the objective appearance of things to the subjective center of things, your consciousness, if you truly desire to know the cause of the phenomena of life, and how to use this knowledge to realize your fondest dreams.
The world moves with motiveless necessity. By this is meant that it has no motive of its own, but is under the necessity of manifesting your concept, the arrangement of your mind, and your mind is always arranged in the image of all you believe and consent to as true. The rich man, poor man, beggar man or thief are not different minds, but different arrangements of the same mind, in the same sense that a piece of steel, when magnetized, differs not in substance from its demagnetized state, but in the arrangement and order of its molecules.
Chapter Three: Power of Assumption
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.
Just as the moth in his desire to know the flame was willing to destroy himself, so must you in becoming a new person be willing to die to your present self. You must be conscious of being healthy if you are to know what health is. You must be conscious of being secure if you are to know what security is.
Your imagination is the instrument, the means, whereby your redemption from slavery, sickness, and poverty is effected. If you refuse to assume the responsibility of the incarnation of a new and higher concept of yourself, then you reject the means, the only means, whereby your redemption – that is, the attainment of your ideal – can be effected. Imagination is the only redemptive power in the universe.
