If you’re familiar with Neville Goddard’s teachings on How Imagination Creates Reality, then you already know that your consciousness is the key to unlocking any manifestation you wish to experience.
But, how, exactly, do you leverage your imagination to create the world you desire? One of the most powerful techniques Neville Goddard outlines is to use a process of daily revision, in which you revisit the events of your day, and re-imagine them as you wish them to be.
How To Use Revision: The Technique Explained
The basic premise of using revision to change your life is that in addition to being able to create your future experiences, you can also use your imagination to re-create past experiences as you wish them to be.
According to Goddard, the most important parts of any day aren’t the actual events you experience, but rather the feelings you remember. Through the use of your imagination, you can downplay any negative, or unwanted events, and then instill the idea of a preferred outcome or experience.
It is best to perform this technique in the evening, just before you go to bed. This time just before sleep is one of the most powerful points of influence you have over your subconscious, and by reviewing the events of the day while they are still fresh in your memory, you can leverage your evening meditation into a process for changing your life.
To use this technique, simply enter into a state of deep relaxation or meditation, in which your mind and body are very relaxed, but you are still conscious and awake. Starting from the beginning of the day, move through the main events that happened to you. Focus in particular on any events that seemed especially meaningful to you. When you are happy with how an event unfolded, take a moment to appreciate it and be grateful for it – aligning your energy to your desire.
If, on the other hand, the event did not go as you’d hoped. Begin to imagine yourself back into the unwanted experience. As you move through the experience, however, replace the unwanted events with your preferred idea of what could have happened.
Why It Works: 3 Success Stories
Revision works because it causes you to reframe the past from the higher perspective of your chosen desire. When you do, you cement your belief that your desire is already working for you, and are able to transcend the physical memory systems of the brain. As you choose to re-remember something a new way, you can then instill a belief that the event happened differently.
From Neville’s Writings
“While my wife was playing tennis she received a severe break to her ankle. We both revised the incident, and although she had to stop playing tennis for a while, the ankle healed rapidly with only the aid of an ace bandage, much to the amazement of the doctor.”

My husband came home without the truck. Sent it to a mechanic we didn’t really care for but we had not found one we liked. I had imagined a second truck but had forgotten about it until he came home without one but I had read revision. He came in saying I wished I could have just come home in the truck. So I revised it. I imagined the truck in the driveway. I said to myself the truck is in the driveway and he drove it there. Next day mechanic says 2500 to fix it. We brought the truck home. Next door neighbor says his father wants to sell his truck for 2500. We bought it. New truck had a minor problem so we took it to the neighbors mechanic. Fixed no charge. Fell in love with them. Asked them to look at old truck. Fixed 100 bucks. Within 3 days we had both trucks sitting in the driveway working perfectly. I have used it many times for when I have burned myself or hurt myself. My husband cut himself and before Neville it would have been stitches and an emergency room charge. I revised it. Three days later all healed. I love revision. I love my imagination. But then now I love it all.
I was sitting there watching about $2000 a month drain off my desk!! So rather than whining and complaining about my ill fate, I recognized a pattern… that often when I land on an AMAZING opportunity in business, something happens that it goes away.
The examples of this are HUGE in my life, and seem to have a theme. So I used Revision and saw each of those situations in my mind ending exactly as I hoped they would, … and low and behold… today, I not only heard from the client, but we scheduled our appointments for the coming month! Whoooo!
