21 Facts About The Law Of Assumption & How To Use It (2024)

In this ultimate guide about the law of assumption, you’ll learn how the law of assumption works, plus how you can use it to create the life of your dreams.

This is something I’m regularly discussing in my role as a life coach. 

So, let’s dive in. 

What Does The Law of Assumption State?

The Law of Assumption states that whatever you assume to be true will manifest in your reality.

Neville Goddard, widely credited with bringing awareness of this law to wider society, states that the world is simply a projection of your consciousness.

This is why you can create your own reality by believing it to be true; because when your internal state changes, your external reality must change along with it.

So, let’s explore how to make that happen.  

How Do You Believe In The Law Of Assumption?

These 21 steps will help you with the manifestation of your dream life using the Law Of Assumption.

1. Decide What You Want To Manifest And Why

Deciding your manifestation is obviously the first step, but you also need to be clear about why you want it. This ‘why’ will drive you to manifest your desires with more ferocity. 

2. Choose Just One Thing

Manifesting desires becomes easier when you focus on one thing at a time. So, decide what is most important to you and focus on manifesting that first. My guide on manifesting multiple things explains more.

3. Write It Down

Writing down your manifestation makes your assumption real, not just a fantasy. Now your desired reality exists in the world, not in your imagination. It’s easy to make your desires crystal clear when you write them down. See my guide on how to manifest on paper for more details. 

4. Be Specific

The more specific you can make your assumptions, the easier it will be to manifest them into your current reality. That’s where your pen and paper comes in handy. Use these tools to write as many details as possible about your assumptions. 

5. Use The Five Senses

When picturing your manifestation, do using all five senses. What does it look like? How is the smell, the taste, the touch? What can you hear? This will make the next step easier.

6. Imagine The Feeling

The next step is to vividly imagine your desired goal as reality. You’ll need to be in a quiet room to bring yourself into a meditative state and imagine yourself having your goals. 

Immerse yourself into this reality. Don’t just picture the things you have, but the feelings you experience having achieved your goal. This mere action can and should be such a joyous experience. Complete it daily.

7. Imagine The Wider Impact Of Your Assumptions

To go deeper into this immersion, imagine how your assumptions will impact the world at large. How will your family and friends be affected? How about society at large? What differences have you made to the world around you?

8. Law Of Assumption Affirmations 

Neville Goddard’s teachings heavily surround the true power of assumption affirmations. This is as simple as speaking your beliefs into reality. Stare into the mirror and yell positive statements with no filters. This is an essential part of your manifestation. 

Your assumption affirmations will mostly surround the reality you’re manifesting. 

“I am the world’s most successful writer!”

“I am the world’s strongest fighter!”

However, it’s also recommended to engage in positive affirmations surrounding the Law Of Assumption itself.

My thoughts create my reality.

“I am the author of my story.”

“When I envision it, I manifest it.”

9. Law Of Assumption Techniques

The purpose of your visualisation and assumption affirmations is to rewire your subconscious mind. The better you become at shifting your internal state, the more power these exercises have over your reality. The aim is to fight off your limiting beliefs and create a truly positive mindset.

During your assumption affirmations, adopt open and powerful body language. Yell with full self-belief in your voice to make full use of your emotions

10. Live Your Life As If Your Desire Has Already Been Accomplished

This is a key final step, which may come naturally depending on the power of your assumption affirmations and visualisations.

When you walk through life as if your desires have been accomplished, you will often bend physical reality to make your assumptions true.

11. Repeat Your Previous Steps  

If you feel negative thoughts or limiting beliefs crawling back into your psyche, repeat the previous steps to realign your mindset. It’s simply a question of getting out of your own way, but sometimes it takes a while to shift your beliefs, have faith and start believing what’s truly possible in this world.

“She loves me with all of her heart.”

“Our love knows no bounds.”

“We are a power couple.”

14. Law Of Assumption Career

20. What’s The Difference Between Law Of Attraction And Law Of Assumption?

The Law Of Attraction is about making a wish to the universe for what you do not currently have. The Law Of Assumption is about assuming you already have what you want. That’s the key difference. 

The Law Of Assumption assumes that you and the universe are not separate. 

In many circles, The Law Of Assumption is regarded as a more powerful version of the Law Of Attraction.  

21. Keep Manifesting

The Law Of Assumption states that nothing exists outside of your own consciousness. Your entire experience of the universe is nothing but a projection of your internal consciousness. 

With that in mind, there’s nothing you can’t achieve with the help of your spiritual law. Just cultivate your desire internally in your subconscious mind and you can create a physical manifestation.
