The law of assumption is a powerful mental tool used to affect your life positively by using your state of mind to manifest your inner desires. It was proposed by American philosopher Neville Goddard.

To begin with, the law of assumption is not a matter of conventional law which is applicable in the law court, but a pseudoscience or spiritual Law which is synonymous with the teachings of Neville Goddard.

Neville Lancelot Goddard was an American philosopher and author, born on February 19, 1905 in Saint Michael, Barbados and died on October 1, 1972 in Los Angeles, California.

What is Law of Assumption?

The Law of Assumption is a means of manifesting desires by having a state of mind and the feeling that those desires, wishes and aspirations have been fulfilled. Neville Goddard explains that achieving a desired goal has everything to do with your state of mind rather than action.

Another essential part of the the law is faith or belief, meaning, to see an assumption’s actual manifestation, one must not just assume it being fulfilled but also believe it is so.

How Law of Assumption works

The law requires the following to practice and to ensure manifestation.

Law of assumption - How it works

A clear and clean state of mind

Clear your mind of any worrying thoughts that may distract you. Self-limiting thoughts are like smoke, it blocks your ability to see what you want and can quietly let you question whether you’re actually deserving of the wonderful things you’re assuming and want manifested.

Let this be at the back of your mind, no matter the flaws of any individual, everyone deserves blessings.


You must be in a positive state of mind. Clear your environment and your mind of anything that exudes negative energy. Listening to relaxing music can be a great way to clear your mind and be in a positive meditative mood.

Know What you want

The purpose and wants must be clear to you. You set off knowing what you want. This is to avoid conflicting assumptions which will end up being a distraction.

Assume and feel

The focus of the law of assumption is assuming the realization of your wants and the feeling it invokes. So you must assume it, get in that state where you feel the emotions of fulfilment.


The last bit is belief. You must believe and have faith that your assumptions have been fulfilled. Manifestation may be limited if you entertain fears that your desires are too huge to manifest, or that your requests won’t be fulfilled.

Law of assumption – Manifesting specific person

Manifesting a specific person (SP) requires the strict adherence to the principles guiding the law of assumption as proposed by Neville. Simply assuming that he or she is madly in love with you won’t suffice.

This is because the law of assumption manifests your state of mind and so it should be about you, what you’re feeling and believing. You basically are what your state of mind says.

To manifest SP, you should be the center of the assumption not someone else, the change should happen to your state of mind before it can manifest.

Manifesting a specific person

How to manifest a specific person for love

Instead of thinking someone you want badly loves you and doesn’t ever want to let go, rather assume that you’re loved, believe that the qualities you seek in a relationship are present in your life, the feeling is true and have the inner relief that it has manifested.

By so doing, you become the center of the assumption manifestation not your specific person. Making it about your specific person is wrong as people have their free will, which you can’t directly change, but can influence it through energy synchronization.

Follow the principles of the law of Assumption, assume you’re with the person and you’re already enjoying the benefits of the relationship. Feel the emotions that state of mind evoke.

Rest in the assumption that you are already what you want to be for in that determined assumption, you and your infinite being are merged in creative unity and with your Infinite Being God all things are possible. God never fails”Neville Goddard
