Failure and how to overcome it
"But I am doing everything and I am still not able to manifest !" We, all conscious creators, have all been there and experienced this. At times this failure to manifest our desires may result in unwanted anxiety and stress. Neville Goddard explains and discusses how to identify failure, its causes and how to correct your mistakes and manifest your desires in his book 'The Power of Awareness'. I have summarized the views of both Joseph Murphy and Neville Goddard below.
The time it takes for your assumption to become fact, for your desires to be fulfilled, is directly proportional to the naturalness of your feeling of already being what you want to be- of already having what you desire- Neville Goddard.
We place a lot of limitations on our manifestations by virtue of our preconditioned thoughts and beliefs. We are made to believe that in order to get whatever we want, we need to work hard. However, if you use the power of your subconscious mind correctly, you do not need to lift a finger and all that you desire will be given to you. According to Joseph Murphy, the main reason for us not being able to manifest our desires can be either the lack of confidence or conviction and too much effort. He also mentions that you fail to get results if you use mental coercion. The subconscious mind responds to faith, not coercion.
Another cause of failure, according to Joseph Murphy, is the incorrect use of your words. You may apply all techniques correctly, do everything you are supposed to be doing but what words are constantly coming out of your mouth? What is the story you are telling? If you repeatedly talk about failure, nothing working out, situation being hopeless, that is exactly what is going to show up in your life. You must have a clear idea in your mind what you want. It must again be noted that it is not up to you to figure out how your desires would manifest in your life. All you need to do is to place your order with the universe.
The fact that it does not feel natural to you to be what you imagine yourself to be is the secret of your failure- Neville Goddard.
Neville says, if you do not feel your desires to be natural, you will not experience it. So what can you do to achieve this feeling of naturalness? The answer is simple- Imagine. Constant, persistent imagination of already having your desires. Once you know and understand that consciousness is the only reality, you will be able to break the cycle of failure.
You must not believe that because your assumption failed to materialize, the truth that assumptions do not materialize is a lie. If your assumptions are not fulfilled, it is because of some error or weakness in your consciousness- Neville Goddard.
But failure is never final until you give up. Once you overcome your errors and weaknesses, success is yours. Your subconscious mind is your servant not your master. Keep practicing your techniques over and over and over again until it feels completely natural to you. Feeling it real truly is the secret !
