11 Powerful Neville Goddard Quotes To Manifest Your Desires

Neville Goddard was an author from the early to mid 1900’s who wrote about mysticism and self help. He was one of the pioneers of the concept of The Law: “imagining creates reality”.

Neville Goddard believed that God was not an external entity, but rather that we are the creator of our realities (i.e. God in human form).   From this sense, all realities can be shifted at any time through feeling and assumption.

Neville Goddard was born in 1905 and died in 1972, leaving an incredible impact on the World with his esoteric teachings. He came from very humble beginnings, living amongst a large family of 10 children in the little island of Barbados.

When he was younger, a seer predicted that he would become a “man of God” and this prediction ultimately came to pass.

As a teenager, Neville went to America, searching for greener pastures, and found menial work for a while. When he got fired, he decided that he will always work for himself from then on-wards.

Knowing nothing about dancing, Neville convinced himself that he could and ultimately succeeded out of “sheer arrogance”. He, then, went on to travel all over the United States performing with others, but knowing he was working for himself.

Neville attended a lecture by an eccentric Ethiopian mystic, known only by one name: Abdullah. When the lecture was finished, the lecturer surprised him when he approached him and said: “Neville, you are 6 months late! The brothers told me you were coming”.

Not only did Abdullah know his name, he also knew that he would one day stumble upon his lecture. Neville would later discover that the “brothers” are “beings of light, who were once incarnated as humans, finished playing all the parts in the game of life and, ultimately, transcended the third dimension when they broke the wheel of recurrence”.

Abdullah explained that he was “eager to depart”, but before that, he had to train Neville to be his successor, in a sense. This training lasted 7 years, with Neville studying the esoteric meaning of The Bible and practicing conscious creation day and night.

Here are some of the most impactful quotes that I’ve read and adopted into my daily life.

1. Do not waste time in regret

“Do not waste one moment in regret, for to think feelingly of the mistakes of the past is to re-infect yourself. Turn from appearances and assume the feeling that would be yours were you already the one you wish to be.”

– Neville Goddard, “Feeling is the Secret”

2. All things evolve out of consciousness

“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;”

― Neville Goddard, “Feeling is the Secret”

3. All you can possibly need or desire is already yours

“All you can possibly need or desire is already yours. You need no helper to give it to you; it is yours now. Call your desires into being by imagining and feeling your wish fulfilled. As the end is accepted, you become totally indifferent as to possible failure, for acceptance of the end wills the means to that end.”

― Neville Goddard, Feeling is the Secret

4. The great secret is a controlled imagination & a well sustained attention

“The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the feeling of the wish fulfilled until it fills the mind and crowds all other ideas out of consciousness.”

― Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

5. Become the master of your assumptions

“The drama of life is a psychological one in which all the conditions, circumstances, and events of your life are brought to pass by your assumptions. Since your life is determined by your assumptions, you are forced to recognize the fact that you are either a slave to your assumptions or their master. To become the master of your assumptions is the key to undreamed of freedom and happiness.”

― Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

6. You must be willing to give up your present limitations 

“Only as one is willing to give up his present limitations and identity can he become that which he desires to be.”

― Neville Goddard

7. The world is yourself pushed out

“The world is yourself pushed out. Ask yourself what you want and then give it to yourself! Do not question how it will come about; just go your way knowing that the evidence of what you have done must appear, and it will.”

— Neville Goddard

8. Your concept of yourself

“Health, wealth, beauty, and genius are not created; they are only manifested by the arrangement of your mind-that is, by your concept of yourself, and your concept of yourself is all that you accept and consent to as true.”

— Neville Goddard

9. You are born with an infinite power

“Each person is born with an infinite power, against which no earthly force is of the slightest significance.”

—  Neville Goddard

10. Simply dare to assume you are what you want to be

“Simply dare to assume you are what you want to be and you will compel everyone to play their part.”

— Neville Goddard

11. Change your conception of yourself

“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.”

— Neville Goddard
