If you are into the Law of Attraction, chances are you’ve heard of the teachings of Neville Goddard (1905-1972). Neville was one of the most sought-after new thought authors and lecturers who taught his students how to effectively and powerfully manifest things in their lives using certain techniques.
Known as the Neville Goddard Techniques, the techniques primarily involved the disciplined use of their imaginations. If you are keen to know some Neville Goddard Techniques, here’s three of the best you can look into and try:
The Three Best Neville Goddard Techniques
When it comes to manifesting your desires, Neville’s primary teaching is to think and feel from the point of view of the wish already fulfilled. It’s the primary point he drives over and over again in his books and lectures.
While Neville had many examples, stories, and variations of how to use his methods, they are all rooted in the same teaching: thinking and feeling as if the wish is already fulfilled.
Technique #01: Congratulations
Before starting this technique, get into a relaxed state first. Stay in a place where you will not be disturbed and begin by imagining people congratulating you for attaining or accomplishing something you have always wanted.
For instance, if you want to be promoted at work, imagine people congratulating you on the promotion as if it has already happened. In your relaxed state, imagine a loved one, friend, or co-worker smiling and looking you right in the eye and telling you “congratulations” or “you did it!”
Make everything feel and sound as real as possible. Put energy into your imagination and actually get into the amazing feeling of being congratulated. Imagine feeling so good having accomplished something so wonderful and amazing. Your company believes in you and acknowledges your contribution so you must feel really good.
You can also expand on this and imagine bumping into people you know. They are all very happy for you and are congratulating you. They are thrilled and proud of you. You can also imagine having someone special invite you to dinner and give a toast in your honor to celebrate your promotion.
Allow yourself to get excited and happy about being congratulated, even if just in your imagination. Do the exercise for several minutes or more. You will often known when to stop. Enjoy the state for as long as you possibly can.
Technique #02: Fast Forward
The fast forward technique involves fast-forwarding your imagination to a point in the future where your wish has been accomplished or fulfilled. For instance, if you are worried about an upcoming day, fast-forward to the end of the day and imagine it to be a huge success. You can also fast forward months or years into the future.
Just like technique #1, you need to get into a relaxed state first and find a place where you will not be disturbed for a while.
Let’s say you want a new home. Start by changing the feeling of wanting a new home to feeling like you’re already in the home you desire. Fast forward to a place in time when you’re actually living in the home of your dreams. In your imagination, walk up to your dream house’s front door.
Take the keys out. Smile, turn the knob and walk in. Take in the breathtaking beauty of your new home. It’s everything you dreamt of and it’s perfect. See the walls and the furniture. Feel the luxurious upholstery and take in the smell of the new market. The primary idea is to imagine and experience your dream home here and now.
Allow yourself to become fully immersed in the scene and fully enjoy your new dream house. You can also imagine having loved ones and friends over and showing them the rooms. You can also take things up a notch by touring the backyard. What do you see? A pool? Garden? Flowers?
Technique #03: Eavesdropping
This technique is considered an effective and beneficial way of using the imagination to manifest a specific desire. All you need to do is imagine hearing people having a conversation where you hear them talking about you having attained your desire. Let’s say you want to meet your soul mate and get married.
In your imagination, hear people talking about your desires. You hear them talking about how lucky you were to have met “the one.” They are so thrilled that you’ve found the perfect person for you. Hear them talk about how amazing your love story is and how great you are for each other.
Take your imagination a step further by hearing them talk about how perfect you are for each other and that you are a match made in heaven. You can also imagine them talking about how much you love each other and how amazing it is to watch you guys together.
If you are wondering if you can bring your desires to life too, you’d be delighted to know the answer is a resounding YES!
Just keep these three things in mind:
- It’s way easier than you think!
- Since you have an imagination, you can do it too.
- The most important thing to remember is you have to think and feel from the point of view of the wish already fulfilled.
