NOTE: Make sure you read the Neville Goddard quote WAY at the bottom of the page. It sums it all up PERFECTLY.
When I started Nevillizing, I was having great success. I suspect one of the reasons why, was because it wasn’t about getting “the black belt”, winning the match, or getting the trophy. Even though I experienced all those successes by creating scenes in my imagination – where I was being congratulated for getting my black belt, winning the match, and getting the trophy – my Nevillizing was driven by something much deeper and much more powerful. It was being driven by a new identity.
“I imagined the NEW IDEAL ME. Strong, confident, loving, expert, attractive, fit, wealthy. Those were just a few of the qualities my “new me” had built in, qualities that men and women, guy friends and girls around me noticed – and remarked about. First those qualities and people noticing them were only in my sessions. Later, they showed up everywhere in my physical life.”
Imagine being born 3 months early, just 2 pounds and 4 ounces. Sick a lot as a kid, shy, getting picked on a lot. The stage was set, the outcome pretty much already written. Then at some point, something changed inside. When I was 12 years old, I decided to reinvent myself – to change who I was and how I got along in the world.
“All you need do is believe you are what you want to be and then let the world (which is nothing more than yourself pushed out) go to work to make your assumption possible. I promise you: your desire will be fulfilled, for all things are possible to him who believes.” – Neville Goddard
How did the “98” pound weakling – the ugly duckling – the outcast – (me) create these amazing changes? How can you apply this in your life?
What exactly is your outcome?
Randy was one of my training partners. He was almost a black belt when I stumbled as a young teenager into my first kempo karate class. Randy was strong, fast and very experienced. He wasn’t good, he was amazing. The funny thing was, over the years, Randy came and went and came back again to train. Somehow over the next four years, I got my first degree black belt first – before him, I don’t think it was because I was more skilled, or even more driven than him.
What matters most is the level you coming from.
I got my black belt fist, because to me – being the accomplished black belt, professional trainer, was my new chosen IDENTITY. And I suspect to Randy, training was an ACTIVITY he enjoyed, something he was good at – but it wasn’t about “a new him”.
There are three levels of change and creation – that we apply to Nevillizing: They are the levels of Stuff – Activity / Ability – Identity.
Manifesting a new toy (or other neat STUFF) could be fun, and it is. Just a few weekends ago, we Nevillized up some great trees for our garden. Back in the old days, I used to Nevillize tournament wins (trophies) all the time. That is Nevillizing new “stuff” in your world. It’s great fun, but it seems as if there is always some new toy to “dial up” and bring into your reality.
Manifesting a new ACTIVITY or ability is great fun too. I used to imagine being able to do the coolest stuff, then not long after someone would show up in my world that I could learn it from. That is Nevillizing new ACTIVITY and ABILITY in your world. That’s cool too, and doing that will change your world.
But most of the time, I did what Neville teaches in so many of his lectures, I focused on Nevillizing a new identity for “me” to live in. I did it as the black belt trainer, I did it as the shaman’s apprentice, I did it as the wilderness survival expert, and I am doing it as an author and writer who produces work that changes the lives of thousands and thousands more.
POWER POINT: Nevillizing a new “identity” seems to not only come from a deeper more powerful place, but it also tends to include creating new “stuff” and new “activity / ability” in your world. Maybe that’s why re-creating your idenity seems to be the most powerful of the three, stuff – activity – identity, and why Neville focused on it so much.

Powerful Take Away: This morning, I scanned my personal collection of 221 Neville Goddard Lectures. There is only ONE lecture, where he uses the phrase “want to have”, Nevillizing focused primarily on stuff. On the other hand, there are 87 lectures, where he uses the phrase “want to be”. I tried a few variations on that theme, “stuff” vs “identity (being)” and they all turn out the same: Neville focuses significantly more changing WHO you are, compared to WHAT you have. Because changing WHO you are in the world, changes what you have and what you are capable of.
How can you apply that to your Feel It Real Sessions today?
The ideal you serve and hope to achieve is ready and waiting for a new incarnation, but it is incapable of birth unless you offer it human parentage. You must assume that you already are what you hope to be and live as though you were.
