Who was this mystical, handsome man with the compelling, confident disposition and a voice as smooth as velvet?
Neville Goddard was an advocate of the Law of Attraction through his belief that "imagination creates reality".
He was born to Anglican parents in St. Michael, Barbados, West Indies in 1905. He had eight brothers and one sister.
At 17, he went to the United States to study drama. Ten years later he gave up his successful theater career to turn his attention to the study of mysticism.
Neville studied with Ethiopian Rabbi, Abdullah, for five years. He learnt Hebrew, Scripture, and Kabala.
Neville died in 1972 of an apparent brain aneurysm.
Neville continues to be an inspiration to seekers the world over. His most famous follower is Dr Wayne Dyer. Learn about Neville's profound influence on Wayne.
I don't recall how I discovered Neville, but I do recall the profound affect his teachings had (and still have) on me.
I have learnt an enormous amount about myself, life and the entity that we call God through Neville's works. I have learnt that everything that happens in my experience is as a result of my own inner conversations. There is no person, circumstance, place or thing that causes anything to occur to me - good or bad - I do it all.
It has been the greatest relief to know that I can create things in my life exactly as I want them to be. It is the easiest, most natural process in the world. It is contentment, excitement, peace and exhilaration all wrapped up in one simple process - the state of imagining a situation from the end.
When you trust your own wonderful human imagination;
When you can sit quietly all alone, asking help of no one;
And really believe that your imaginal act is a created fact;
And that in the interval of time necessary it is going to externalize itself;
And become a reality in your world;
You're on the verge of rebirth.

When asked if people could purchase tapes of his lectures, Neville said "I have no tapes. Others here are making tapes for their own use. Perfectly all right. But I have no tapes."

I started by falling asleep every
night saying "I am so thrilled, I am so thrilled, I am so thrilled" and
feeling the feeling of life presenting me with things and events to be thrilled
about. I don't necessarily think of what the things or events will be, just that they will be wonderful.
It has never failed. I have more than anyone could hope for in my
relationships, career, finances and health and well-being. It is a
blessing that is not for some, but for all.
that we as humans would consider "bad" can come into our
lives when we fall asleep in this way. Only magnificence, love
and everything we deem to be wonderful and good floods into our lives.
Give it a go, there is nothing to lose.
I will imagine that your life is transformed as remarkably and as sensationally as mine has been since discovering Neville Goddard. Best wishes.
