What’s the base of a successful manifesting?
“So, you look into your own minds eye and know exactly what you want in this world. When you know what you want in place of what you are, then you are seeing your savior, your Jesus. The story is, don’t let Him go, but let all else go.” – Neville Goddard
Every time then I’m manifesting something, first I need to kill the old me, the one to whom my desire was impossible. Yes, sometimes it’s “hard”… But only when I value more my old, good struggle then my desire…
“Disengage yourself from the whole vast belief that you formerly entertained, and hold on in your imagination to the concept that you ARE the man that you want to be… For you will RESSURECT and make alive the state that began only as a concept. If you remain faithful to the concept you will be led right into the fulfillment of that state. It is called, in the Bible, re-birth.” – Neville Goddard
It’s fucking hard to manifest a relationship if loneliness is my nature. It’s impossible to manifest more money if poor is who I think I am.
So the first step is always abandoning the old state. Killing the old me.
“I am not speaking about some little magical thing where you can wave a wand and your desire will suddenly appear. This law is based upon a principle. If you want something, you can have it, but YOU MUST BE WILLING TO GIVE UP WHAT YOU ARE NOW in order to be what you want to be.” – Neville Goddard
My personal example :
I have a friend with who I was barely speaking for about two years because of some stupid argument. And I wanted our relationship to be great again. I was imagining and feeling it real. But “somehow” it wasn’t working out as I wanted. Every time she was reaching out to me I was playing the hurt one. I wanted our friendship to be great like it was! But I also wanted her to apologize! I wanted to have apologized so bad… STOP! Not me. My old state. I have never fully moved to my desired state, I was only faking it. Because if I’m feeling real that we’re besties and I’ve even reversed our argument, then what I want to be apologized for? In my desired state, there was nothing to be apoligized for. Nothing to be feel hurt about.
What I was doing for those two years was being double-minded. That’s what Neville talks about. That’s when we’re receiving nothing. That’s what mainstream LOA people call “resistance”.
“I say to everyone: you can be anything you want to be, but you cannot be double-minded. You are told, Let no one believe that – having looked into the mirror, turns away and forgets what he looks like – that he will receive anything from the Lord, for the double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” – Neville Goddard
btw. Netflix made a great series that can be an illustration here, it’s called “Living with myself”. I’m sure Neville himself would recommend watching it.)
“So, if you have learned the art of dying, you have learned the art of living. For man is immortal and he must die endlessly. For life was a creative idea, and it will find itself only in changing form. If I do not change and grow and outgrow, and grow and outgrow, then I know nothing of the mystery of Easter, for Easter is really the greatest of all mysteries. Its when man awakens within himself from his birth at Bethlehem and he awakens as God. That’s the story of Easter.” – Neville Goddard
