Dare to assume: Manifesting with the Law of Assumption

Since Rhonda Byrne's groundbreaking documentary The Secret swept across our self-help channels in 2006, many of us cottoned on to the incredible power of manifesting with the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like, what we focus on grows, be the change you want to see in the world – these Law of Attraction catchphrases are familiar to many of us. However, decades before The Secret arrived on the manifesting scene with the Law of Attraction, there was another universal law in force, assisting those in the know to achieve their dreams. It was known as The Law of Assumption.

The birth of the Law of Assumption

We have author and self-development teacher Neville Goddard (1905-1972) to thank for bringing The Law of Assumption to our global attention. Goddard wrote prolifically on the subject of the Law of Assumption, with titles such as At Your Command (1939), Feeling is the Secret (1944), The Creative Use of Imagination (1952) and The Law and the Promise (1961). These titles capture themes that are very familiar to those who know their manifesting tools. Goddard taught, essentially, that what you assume to be reality IS reality.

However, we must look to Neville's mentor, an Ethiopian mystic known simply as Abdullah, for the source of these teachings on the Law of Assumption. Abdullah instructed Neville in the 1930s while he was in New York. It was Abdullah who inducted Neville into the Law of Assumption, and its metaphysical machinations. So what is the Law of Assumption? And how can we harness the Law of Assumption to manifest our dreams?

What is the Law of Assumption?

The Law of Assumption, in a nutshell, is that our assumptions about life and ourselves shape our reality. In other words, what we assume to be true, even if it is not yet evident in our external circumstances, will manifest in our life. The mind has the power to create reality through focused thought and belief. Here are the five key concepts that underpin the powerful machinations of the Law of Assumption:

  1. Assumption creates reality: By assuming the feeling, sensation or emotion of the wish as if it has already been fulfilled – that is, acting as if your desired outcome is already a reality - you bring that outcome into existence.
  2. Imagination and belief: Imagination and belief are essential to shaping our reality. By vividly imagining a desired state in as much detail, colour and sensation as possible, and then truly believing in its reality, we align our subconscious mind with our conscious desires.
  3. Persistence: Consistency in maintaining the assumption of the desired state is crucial. Persistently holding onto this belief, regardless of your current circumstances, is what leads to its manifestation. Keep reminding yourself of the belief.
  4. Assume the ultimate: This principle involves mentally and emotionally living in the end state of your desire. Instead of longing for a goal or outcome, you think, feel, and act as though it has already been achieved.
  5. Inner dialogue and positive affirmations: The Law of Assumption emphasises the importance of inner dialogue. Positive affirmations and constructive self-talk can reinforce the assumption of the desired reality.

How to apply the Law of Assumption for results

It's all well and good knowing the five central tenets of the Law of Assumption... but how do we put those into action? How do we ensure our success with this powerful force? Step in, Queen of Manifesting Abiola Abrams, who has written a book on The Law of Assumption, focusing on the teachings of Abdullah. If you want to go really deep in immersing in the Law of Assumption, don't miss Abiola's two-day intensive workshop guiding you to manifest that goal that you've always wanted to bring into reality using the Law of Assumption. Meanwhile, to help you prepare, here are some tips on how to apply the Law of Assumption for manifesting your dreams.

  • Visualisation: The Law of Assumption uses the power of meditation and visualisation. Spend time each day visualising your desired outcome vividly and in detail. Feel the emotions associated with achieving this goal.
  • Affirmations: Use positive affirmations that reinforce your belief in the reality of your desire. For example, if you desire a new job, you might affirm, "I am thriving in my new, fulfilling, creative and uplifting career."
  • Act as if: Behave and make decisions as if your desired outcome is already true. This might mean dressing for the job you want, speaking confidently as if you already have what you desire, etc.
  • Mental rehearsal: Regularly rehearse mental scenarios where your desire is already fulfilled. This reinforces the assumption in your subconscious mind.

The Law of Assumption is a powerful tool to work with when manifesting our dreams. Dare to assume, and you will receive! Don't miss our 2-day online power-workshop with Law of Assumption Manifesting Queen Abiola Abrams to use the Law of Assumption to bring your dreams into reality:
