Law of Assumption vs. Law of Attraction

During the last few years, people have become aware that each individual can transform their reality according to their desires. No one is tied to a predetermined destiny; therefore, each one of us can build our own destiny at will. Fortunately, ancient knowledge such as the Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction allows each human being to fulfill all the desires that dwell in his heart, whatever they may be. The first thing to do is positively visualize ourselves with what we want to achieve for it to manifest in our earthly reality.

Understanding the Law of Assumption

The Law of Assumption is a means by which you can realize the fulfillment of your desires. The term "assumption" comes from the verb "to assume," which means "to accept something as true." Basically, this law asserts that if you accept your desire as valid even if you do not see it physically, you will soon see it manifest in your material reality. This happens because your desire already exists within your mental reality. Therefore your desire will inevitably manifest in your life. You must BELIEVE and FEEL the emotion of your desire already fulfilled for it to come true.

Getting to know Neville Goddard

Neville Goddard (1905-1972) was an American writer and mystic born in Barbados. Most notably, Goddard was the author of the very influential book "Think and Grow Rich." Goddard was a great promoter of the Law of Assumption. He received valuable teachings from the great spiritual master Abdullah, who taught him to apply this law in daily life. Goddard studied the Bible in-depth and made a psychological interpretation of the biblical teachings. He concluded that each biblical character represents a psychological aspect of the human being. Throughout his books, the successful writer highlights the importance of feeling the emotion of desire fulfillment to achieve what we want in life.

This is how the Law of Assumption is applied:

The Law of Assumption assures that you can fulfill your desire by assuming that it is already a reality in your life. You have to feel and act as if your desire is already fulfilled until it manifests in your physical reality. You must completely ignore the physical evidence that tells you that your desire has not yet been fulfilled. The only thing that matters is the mental reality because that is where your desire is fulfilled. Have faith, and it will soon manifest in your life.

The Law of Assumption has simple steps to follow:

  1. Define your desire.

  2. Mentally assume that your desire is already a reality in your life. Feel the excitement, joy, and gratitude for your wish fulfilled.

  3. Totally ignore what you currently see in the physical plane.

  4. Persist mentally in the existence of your desire.

  5. Your desire will inevitably manifest itself in your earthly reality.

During this process, you must maintain a positive mindset, imagine as if your desire is already real. Keep your mind in the present time. For example, you should state, "I am a millionaire," do not think, "I will be a millionaire."

How does the Law of Assumption relate to the Law of Attraction?

The Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction (LOA) are tools people use to accomplish their goals. The two laws have some points in common that are worth noting:

Both laws require the individual to develop a positive mindset.

Both laws hold that a positive attitude raises the individual's vibrational frequency, energetically aligning them with their desire.

Both laws hold that in order to achieve a goal, each individual has to transform their mental reality so that it manifests in physical reality.

Both laws assert that each individual manifests what he believes, not what he wants. That is why it is essential to eliminate negative and limiting beliefs from our minds. Positive beliefs can be cultivated so that only the good manifests in life.

Differences between the Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction

The Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction differ substantially in the WAY goals are achieved.

The Law of Assumption focuses on the individual's identity since he has to assume to be who he wants to be. For example: if he wants to be successful, he must believe that he is already successful. On the other hand, LOA focuses on the ego since it states that you have to attract what you want to be or have. For example: if the individual wants to have a car, he has to attract it. The ego establishes a separation from what you want, so you need to attract it.

To obtain your desire, the Law of Assumption states that you must assume the state of that which you desire. On the other hand, the Law of Attraction states that you have to ask the Universe for what you want, and the Universe will grant you your desire if you have been able to attract it correctly with your mind.

The Law of Assumption is based on emotion because you have to feel NOW what you would feel if your desire were already a concrete reality. On the other hand, LOA is based on thought because you have to think about what you want in order to attract it. The Law of Assumption proposes that you can have what you want right now because you assume it mentally. During the LOA process, you have to expect to attract what you want.

You create your own World

One of the most incredible aspects of the Law of Assumption is that it asserts that you are the operating creator of your own reality. So if you believe that in order to earn a lot of money, you need to work hard, that is what you will manifest in your reality. Likewise, if you believe that making a lot of money is very easy, that is what will manifest in your world. That means that your physical reality reflects the beliefs that are in your mind. What do you choose to believe?
