Neville Goddard: 21 Empowerment Quotes That Helped Me Step Into My Self Leadership

Neville Goddard was an author from the early to mid 1900's who wrote about mysticism, self help, and what I consider to be the deepest levels of Self Leadership by eloquently reinterpreting the bible as a parable of the human psyche.

 

Neville Goddard believed that God was not an external entity, but rather that we ARE the creator of our realities (ie God in human form).   From this sense, all realities can be shifted at any time through feeling and assumption.

 

In saying that, here are some of the most impactful quotes that I've read and adopted into my daily Self leadership routines. 

 

1. Do not waste time in regret

“Do not waste one moment in regret, for to think feelingly of the mistakes of the past is to re-infect yourself. Turn from appearances and assume the feeling that would be yours were you already the one you wish to be.”

– Neville Goddard, “Feeling is the Secret”

 

2. Change your conception and you will change the world

“Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.”

– Neville Goddard, ‘Your Faith Is Your Fortune’

 

3. The world is a mirror

“The world is a mirror, forever reflecting what you are doing, within yourself.”

– Neville Goddard.

 

4. All things evolve out of consciousness

“Consciousness is the one and only reality, not figuratively but actually. This reality may for the sake of clarity be likened unto a stream which is divided into two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. In order to intelligently operate the law of consciousness it is necessary to understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious is personal and selective; the subconscious is impersonal and non-selective. The conscious is the realm of effect; the subconscious is the realm of cause. These two aspects are the male and female divisions of consciousness. The conscious is male; the subconscious is female. The conscious generates ideas and impresses these ideas on the subconscious; the subconscious receives ideas and gives form and expression to them. By this law-first conceiving an idea and then impressing the idea conceived on the subconscious-all things evolve out of consciousness;”

― Neville Goddard, “Feeling is the Secret”

 

5. All you can possibly need or desire is already yours

“All you can possibly need or desire is already yours. You need no helper to give it to you; it is yours now. Call your desires into being by imagining and feeling your wish fulfilled. As the end is accepted, you become totally indifferent as to possible failure, for acceptance of the end wills the means to that end.”

Neville Goddard, Feeling is the Secret

 

6. Control of your feeling is the secret to a full & happy life

“Ideas are impressed on the subconscious through the medium of feeling. No idea can be impressed on the subconscious until it is felt, but once felt – be it good, bad or indifferent – it must be expressed. Feeling is the one and only medium through which ideas are conveyed to the subconscious. Therefore, the man who does not control his feeling may easily impress the subconscious with undesirable states. By control of feeling is not meant restraint or suppression of your feeling, but rather the disciplining of self to imagine and entertain only such feeling as contributes to your happiness. Control of your feeling is all important to a full and happy life.”

Neville Goddard, Feeling is the Secret

 

7. You possess the power to alter your future

"You are free to choose the concept you will accept of yourself. Therefore, you possess the power of intervention, the power which enables you to alter the course of your future. The process of rising from your present concept to a higher concept of yourself is the means of all true progress. The higher concept is waiting for you to incarnate it in the world of experience."

Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

 

8. The great secret is a controlled imagination & a well sustained attention

"The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the feeling of the wish fulfilled until it fills the mind and crowds all other ideas out of consciousness."

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

 

9. You can know a thing spiritually only by becoming it

"You know a thing mentally by looking at it from the outside, by comparing it with other things, by analyzing it and defining it; whereas you can know a thing spiritually only by becoming it. You must be the thing itself and not merely talk about it or look at it."

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

 

10. Claim it

"Claim it; it will respond."

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness



11. The signs always follow.

“The signs always follow. They never precede.”

– Neville Goddard.

 

12. The world has no motive of its own

"The world moves with motiveless necessity. By this is meant that it has no motive of its own, but is under the necessity of manifesting your concept, the arrangement of your mind, and your mind is always arranged in the image of all you believe and consent to as true. “

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

 

13. Become the master of your assumptions

"The drama of life is a psychological one in which all the conditions, circumstances, and events of your life are brought to pass by your assumptions. Since your life is determined by your assumptions, you are forced to recognize the fact that you are either a slave to your assumptions or their master. To become the master of your assumptions is the key to undreamed of freedom and happiness."

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness

 

14. Appropriate it, claim it, assume it.

"All is yours. Do not go seeking for that which you are. Appropriate it, claim it, assume it. Everything depends upon your concept of yourself. That which you do not claim as true of yourself, cannot be realized by you.”

- Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness



15. Realize you yourself are the power

“Because of your belief in external things you think power into them by transferring the power that you are to the external thing. Realize you yourself are the power you have mistakenly given to outer conditions.”

–Neville Goddard.


16. 'I will be' is a confession that 'I am not’

“I will be'' is a confession that ‘“I am not’”.

–Neville Goddard.



17. You must be willing to give up your present limitations 

“Only as one is willing to give up his present limitations and identity can he become that which he desires to be.”

-Neville Goddard.



18. The biggest delusion is that there are causes other than your own state of consciousness

“Man's chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness.”

– Neville Goddard.

 

19. You rise to a higher self leadership by taking your attention away from your limitations

“You rise to a higher level of consciousness by taking your attention away from your present limitations and placing it upon that which you desire to be.”

– Neville Goddard.



20. You are born with an infinite power

“Each person is born with an infinite power, against which no earthly force is of the slightest significance.”

– Neville Goddard.



21. Simply dare to assume you are what you want to be

“Simply dare to assume you are what you want to be and you will compel everyone to play their part.”

– Neville Goddard.
