Demystify Law of Assumption: Your Faith is Your Fortune

Neville Goddard

I stumbled onto Neville Goddard’s content and was immediately hooked but also found it rather confusing to read. And when I say rather confusing, I mean I did not understand it at all – it was as if I was reading another language. I needed someone or some way to demystify the law of assumption into words I could understand.

In time, I started to understand it and not only understand it but started to see it play out in my own life. As I began to look for the truth in the world around me, I could not help but see law of assumptions principles in everything I did and in every experience I had. It was as if there was this inner desire in me that wanted me to see how it all works and I kept returning to Neville’s works until they made sense. 

I am writing today in hopes that I can share these principles in a way that helps you make sense of a piece you may have felt alluded you for some time or gives you a better understanding so that you can improve your life. That was what I wanted, to understand the law of assumption so I could use the principles for my life.

Today I’d like to start with Your Faith is Your Fortune. This book started as one of my least favorites of his but has quickly moved up to be one I keep returning to. Although, even in just reading the first chapter today I was reminded why I found his content a bit confusing when I first got started. 

If you’d like to read for yourself, you can find the full content here.

The book starts with, “In the beginning was the unconditioned awareness of being, and the unconditioned awareness of being became conditioned by imagining itself to be something, and the unconditioned awareness of being became that which it had imagined itself to be; so did creation begin.”

To understand this more and see how this ties into you improving your own life, everything started with just knowing that you are. You are here, you are a being, you are aware of being and there is nothing conditioned or assigned to that being. You have not yet assigned the rest of the I am, you have not assigned the condition or belief to the I am. You just are. Which is a beautiful place to be, everything you could ever imagine is available to you. 

To put it simply, creation is you conditioning who you have decided you actually are. It is completing the sentence of I am. 

And not just what you say outloud but what you actually believe and feel true of yourself.


Your I am = your state = your identity.

 I AM that I AM.

Neville Goddard

This is the meaning of I am that I am. You are what you believe you are, you are the sum of your state and your identity.

I have also published a podcast on this topic.
