Manifesting Miracles: Beyond “I Am God of My Reality'”
Manifesting and the belief of being the “God of our reality” often stir discussions about the true nature of our connection with the divine. Some believe they are the sole creators of their reality, while others perceive themselves as sparks of the divine essence. The crux lies in experiencing the presence of God, or merely reading something.
Conveying the certain concepts, especially the concept of devotion, particularly the depth of love it entails, can pose a significant challenge to students of the Law of Assumption or anyone from a Western cultural background. Devotion represents a complete and profound love that is a crucial aspect of religion, spirituality, and manifesting miracles. However, it’s a topic that often finds resistance or avoidance, especially within the realm of the Law of Attraction (LOA), where discussions about devotion are relatively scarce or overlooked.
During the years that I worked in addiction medicine and detox, I came to understand that each and every person has an internalized concept of God already. This is their lifeline, their path to salvation, to recovery and strenght. We call it “God of your understanding”. What Law of Assumption coaches often seem to be lacking is first of all, any undertsanding at all, and secondly, any kind of respect for the individual that they are working with. The shallow approach that I am talking about “God of my reality” can mean different things to different people. For some, it just means megalomania, and nothing else, and for others, it means that we all have our own connection to God. What does it mean for Neville Goddard? What does it mean forthe Sufi, or for the Bhakta? For you?
“I and my Father are one, but my Father is greater than I. “My awareness and that which I AM Aware of being are one, but I AM greater than that which I AM aware of being. The conceiver will ever be greater than his conception. The Father (Consciousness) is greater than his SON (conception of himself).
Now your eyes are opened. Your Father, God Almighty, has been revealed to you as your awareness of being.Neville Goddard
Truth 1: You Are a Spark of God (Awareness of being)
“God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”Romans 5:5
You are intimately connected to God, an unbreakable bond that goes beyond your ego and thoughts. While some believe they are the ultimate creators of their reality, the truth is that you are also a spark of the divine. Recognizing this connection is the key to experiencing something much greater than the confines of our limited understanding. There are many Bible verses discussing the heart because it is clear that the condition of your heart is critical in your walk with the The Divine. Memorize these important verses, and they will always available to you when you doubt!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;Proverbs 3.5
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.Proverbs 4.23
My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways,Proverbs 23.26
Can you feel the love?… Seek it…try to taste it…become curious…. Love is a vehicle, and devotion and love of God is the vehicle that you travel in to merge into oneness.
How many coaches do you hear talk about the Biblical verses that challenge their limited megalomania version of “God of my reality”? Cherry picking the Biblke is something that cult leaders do. Let’s not be cult leaders. Instead, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 5.10
Realize YOU do in fact have direct access to the divine, but have you called on it? Did you ask for the divinity in you to lead the way? Or are you busy with vain repetitions?
Istead of reacting with repulsion at the idea of God, or the mention of God, imagine God and you in an intimate conversation, close your eyes in a prayer, and imagine as if laying face to face with a lover speaking intimate confessions and allow for love to fill your heart. Why do you have to beat it into youself that “there is no outer God”, it makes no difference, the only thing that will make a difference truly and fundamentally in YOUR life is YOUR experience. Give yourself this gift. Your life WILL transform, and you will never think of spouting nonsens that you read in a book or in a community group again. NOTHING trumps expereince. Nothing.
Truth 2: God Can Do Anything, but can you?
God’s power transcends our imagination. From stopping a bullet midair to speaking through your voice, God’s abilities are beyond comprehension. Neville Goddard tought from the Kabbalah, and LOA teachings barely scratch the surface of these extraordinary teachings. In addition, Neville Goddard used the New Testament, to make our transformation complete. Embracing this belief is essential, for God’s potential is not limited to OUR imagination, it actually goes BEYOND our imagination. WAY beyond. You won’t grasp this by ignorantly sticking to “I am God of My relaity”. Your material manifestations or reunions with exes is a bleak comparison to what the teachings REALLY offer. Can you go there? Understand that miracles can unfold, leaving no doubt of divine intervention. You can not EVEN imagine all the greatness, open yourself up to this.
If you seek to comprehend the essence of the Law and Promise by Neville Goddard, consider putting aside your ego and negative thoughts. Seek instead for a firsthand experience of the divine pouring into your heart. Discover “the promise” .
To those who’ve never encountered God intimately, who haven’t witnessed miracles firsthand, refrain from defining God based on limited beliefs. Your version of God may be confined to material desires, but the true understanding of God’s magnitude goes beyond our comprehension.
Anything is possible when you believe in the infinite power of God. Anything. But have you asked for the divine to take the lead? Or are you busy with vain repetitions?
Truth 3: Biblical Interpretations and the LOA
Law of Assumption coaches LOVE to do what some pastors also do, that is to cherry-pick verses from the Bible and SUT DOWN doubers with the guilt and shame game. The Bible is a complex and rich text, and cherry-picking verses to align with personal beliefs oversimplifies its profound teachings. Just beacuse they haven’t taken time to learn more, they oversimplify, and thus, they lose the magic. The mystical and the divine. This is called; “The blind leading the blind”. Cherry picking is what cults do, let’s not be a cult. There is ALWAYS more to learn. Open yourself up for expansion, for going beyond the mind.
Manifestation and the Law of Assumption stuck in second gear:
When we discover Law Of Assumption, our journey often begins with empowerment, excitement and wonder, but without a clear understanding of the underlying truths, so seekers can find themselves lost. Following are the essential truths that often remain overlooked, even after a significant amou t of learning and practicing.
Truth 1: LOA Coaches: Bridging the Gap Between Claim and Capability
Manifestation, an art of shaping reality through belief and intention, requires both expertise and experience. Of course, many LOA coaches lack comprehensive training because there IS no training for Law of Assumption coaching. This is why many lack the readiness for the task they undertake. Manifestation is as complex as the individual seeking help. LOA is always the saeme, but humans are not. Working with people demands an understanding of human psychology, belief systems, and spirituality. Without a solid foundation in ANY type of coaching or counseling, many coaches may inadvertently misguide seekers, unable to effectively navigate them through their manifestation journeys. I have seen some their clients in practice, and the outcome is sometimes dangerous. Golda Meir said:
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.Golda Meir
But there are times when in your desperation you DON’T trust yourself, when you need someone to steer you away from your your fears, away from desparate delusions, and those are the times that people reach out for coaching. Trust then, and surrender, to the divine in you guiding you to the right coach, teacher, counselor or whatever you may need. Try to trust your gut.
Truth 2: Delusions in LOA: Recognizing Reality Beyond Assumptions
Delusions within the LOA coaching-community can affect how individuals perceive life, their clients, and even themselves. The notion of being the “God of one’s reality” sometimes leads to an overestimation of personal power and understanding and a disconnect between ones own heart and the people you are supposed to love.. It’s vital to recognize the boundaries of human capabilities and acknowledge that life is complex, relationships are a source of growth and expansion, and this is where all the love is. Clients may face challenges that extend beyond “getting”.
Truth 3: VAIN REPETITIONS.
If you do nothing but focus on your desires, day after day after day. Your affirmations. Your imaginal scenes. Your FIR (feel it real), and you never once make an effort to find your self, your divinity, your peace, your zen, your hearts connection to God. If you NEVER try to find a place where your mental chatter ceases and the walls of your ego come crumling down, you are guilty of VAIN REPETITIONS. This behavior, is exactly what Neville Goddard warns agains. There IS a space of utter love and peace, and it is within you, it is within reach, now, today and always.
“You do not command things to appear by your words or loud affirmations. Such vain repetition is more often than not confirmation of the opposite. Decreeing is ever done in consciousness. That is; every man is conscious of being that which he has decreed himself to be.”-Neville Goddard
Let me explain what “vain repetitions REALLY mean, because SOME coaches belive that it mean sthat you should not do affirmations. This WRONG. This is what it means:
If there is a fear that is interfering with an individuals life, and instead of SEEKING FIRST FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD, meaning, instead of seeking for your divine center, your hearts connection to God, your ego is TERRIFIED, and every manifestation method that you use is actually making THE FEAR become stronger and more destructive.
Any fear that is hard-wired in the body, (read The Body Keeps The Score) has been there for the most part of that person’s life, and THEY DON’T KNOW THAT. But as a coach, you should be able to see this..
Can you successfully use affirmations? Yes. It is NOT what vain repetitions mean:
“Can man decree a thing and have it come to pass? Most decidedly he can! Man has always decreed that which has appeared in his world and is today decreeing that which is appearing in his world and shall continue to do so as long as man is conscious of being man. Not one thing has ever appeared in man’s world but what man decreed that it should. This you may deny, but try as you will you cannot disprove it, for this decreeing is based upon a changeless principle.”Neville Goddard
“Now the fun of that is that when you end up, the beautiful game of realization, is that the playmate turns out to be real and you turn out to be imaginary.”Ram Dass (On awakening)
Don’t end up a manifester, just be. Don’t sell yourself short. Gice yourself the fullness of what your life has to offer.
Bhakti, known as the path of devotion, illustrates profound love and connection, akin to the relationships of Krishna and Radha, Mary and Jesus, or Hanuman and Ram. These bonds, whether of lovers, mother and son, friends, devotee and guru, or servant and master, serve as gateways to awakening and enlightenment. Each form of love presents a unique path, with love being at its core. When this love manifests consciously, we recognize it as a soulmate connection—a deep, soulful marriage.
However, Bhakti, or devotional love, is often absent in the teachings of the Law of Assumption, which primarily focuses on material acquisition. Yet, true spiritual growth transcends mere acquisition—it embodies love and devotion. The commandment “Thou shalt not have any idols” urges us to directly embrace love in all its forms, reminding us that the form is simply a guise—God in disguise.
“Love covers all transgressions” conveys the idea that love has the power to forgive and overlook faults or wrongdoings. When love is present in a relationship or situation, it can bridge gaps, heal wounds, and bring understanding and compassion, ultimately fostering harmony and resolution despite any shortcomings or mistakes. This can not be understood by LOA and “God of my own reality”, this love requires another. A bhakti knows this and savors the dual love, just like one savors love making. The aquisition of enlightenment can wait, the savoring is so enjoyable.
