Law of Assumption

Although there has been a significant amount of emphasis on the Law of Attraction, I believe the Law of Assumption is really the cornerstone in creating your reality.  Under the Law of Assumption, the world that you see depends not so much as what is there but the assumptions you make when you look at it.  Your assumptions are that which you believe, feel, think and consent to.
All of your experiences are determined by your assumptions and it is how you are using your imagination that is driving these assumptions to create your state of being.  For an assumption will build of bridge of incidents that lead inevitably to the fulfillment of your image of your conscious or unconscious desires.  

For many of us our thoughts are mechanical and because we are asleep to the power of our imagination, we have a tendency of negating everything and believing that everything outside of ourselves is fact.  Our continual negative thinking causes downward emotions and these pessimistic emotions keep us locked into unwanted experiences.  Here is a simplistic example.  If you believe that people have no manners and are rude, you will usually encounter these types of people throughout the day to validate your assumptions.  Someone will step in front of you in line.  Someone will not hold the door for you.  Someone will bump you on the sidewalk and look at you as if you did something wrong.
When we awaken to the power of our imagination, we can direct our assumptions along a more positive path and in doing so move our emotions in an upward direction.  When your emotions are flowing positively, you will discover that your world changes to match your concept of yourself.  It does so because the mind arranges an image of all you believe and consent to as true.
In order to work constructively with the Law of Assumption, you have to understand the difference between how the spiritual and physical world work.  In the physical or outer world, we have a tendency of saying, ‘this is reality’ or ‘this is how it is’.  We know the world through our mental senses and we have a tendency of having a fixed view of it. This objective view will always reflect back to you your inner state of being.
It is through the spiritual level or inner world that you have transforming power.  Through the conscious use of your imagination, you can subjectively appropriate your objective reality.  In other words, your assumptions places you psychologically where you are not physically and when the inner being knows that state of being it will project it into your reality.
So how do you work with the Law of Assumption?  You first have to have a desire or aim in life.  Once you have determined what it is you want; you need to go within and clothe your desire in your imagination.  Give it all the feelings of reality and play with your imagination until you capture the emotional state of being.  
Throughout the day, check in with your status.  Ask yourself:  Where am I psychologically?  Am I riding the desired state of being or am I viewing my world in the negative?  Am I keeping the tense?  By this I mean, how are you using the words, ‘I am’?  Are you in the present moment or are you saying, ‘I will be...” or ‘I am going to...’?  Bring yourself constantly back to the moment and allow yourself to appropriate the feelings of the state desired.  Do it often.  You have the power to rearrange your mind therefore changing your reality.   Begin it now.



  1. Your Law of Assumption resembles the premise for "The Matrix" ("Do you think that's air you're breathing!?") but doesn't address that there may be underlying rules, as there are in The Matrix. These rules may prevent you from reaching your goals, although not the hope of it.
    Are there any ancient teachings that are backed up by stories of success in achieving your aim? I can picture many accepted sages, Buddha, Confucius,... offering similar advice, but which one of them said, "See here, our friend Beverly has achieved this, and BEFORE the afterlife!"
    P.S. Sorry to hear about skating mishap, I think it was universal that day, I did it, too!

    1. There are actually other laws which might help you see why some goals we have happen instantly and others seem to keep eluding us. Sometimes it is simply because we are focused on the lack and we set a time frame to the achievement. Buddha had spent years searching for answers. It wasn't until he gave up that enlightenment happened. I found it interesting when I learned that prior to enlightenment he decided to eat a bowl of rice that was given him. His followers chastised for taking food and abandoned him for eating. Personally I think that there have been many people that have achieved enlightenment before they transitioned from this world. Thanks for the comment. Wishing you days of many pleasant surprises. bev

  2. I recently had a 'delicious' discussion on 'assumptions' with a good friend in which we reviewed the overall idea of intuition and imagination as characterized by assumption. Having been involved in the mantic arts for some 45 years while searching for understanding of the idea of self-realization led to this dialogue. It often is a failure of the seeker to dive beyond a 'memory' which fits what they believe is the causation of their dilemma and in not continuing to study the 'reasoning' as well as the 'causation' much more can be missed in the comprehension. It is much like the way we experience at one point of age and then at a later point the redundancy has already hidden the tentacles which created the memory of the earlier experience....even though the experience has been repeated in partiality, at least, time and again since its original form.

  3. Neville Goddard was the one who first called it the Law of Assumption. Have you ever spoken about revision? That is another very powerful tool that any individual can use within the Law of Assumption.

    It is always about those inner conversations we have in our minds, and what they view and say. Many miss that distinction not realizing that they have the ability to change their reality in this way, by remembering a negative conversation or experience in the positive way they would rather it had happened in the first place.

    One can create the habit of revising a thing as it is happening and thereby change it, as all of it is contained within the original assumption. One simply needs to become aware of that possibility.
