“Why does Neville teach to use a scene that FOLLOWS the wish fulfilled, instead of using one of the wish being fulfilled?” – Mark Neilson
Here is a story of how we use both kinds of scenes – and why Neville taught that the scene that follows the wish fulfilled is the creative act.
When I was 12 years old, I took up martial arts – I became totally obsessed about them – and that obsession led me to Neville Goddard. On the earthly level, anyone who knew any thing became my teacher. I trained often 8 hours or more a day, and sought out the best of the best, and found myself quite blessed in the end.
And as I trained…
I learned two kinds of imaginal work that changed my life.
The first was Creative Visualization. This is where you imagine “what you are doing” and where you imagine doing it “perfectly”. I would close my eyes and see movies of my BODY, doing perfect movements, amazing kicks, and beautiful practice routines. These would always end with me seeing the same scene (me fighting beautifully for example) through my own eyes.
For example, I developed an amazing kicking ability with my RIGHT foot, and would see THE FOOT easily landing where I wanted it to. This is creative visualization – and is great for LEARNING and MASTERING a skill. (Notice the creative visualization is based on me doing the skill.)
Taking it to The Neville Level.
Sometime along the way, I learned how to use imagination like Neville did. And that is when EVERYTHING shifted, and my results amped up several hundred percent. I saw the world through the eyes – of the young man – who had the wins, was granted the black belts, and the scenes were mostly me being congratulated for that. My Neville Level scenes – always followed the wins, the accomplishments, the success.
They moved me from the act performed (the amazing kick for example) to the state of mind of “the master kicker” being congratulated on another win or accomplishment.
Today’s Take Away: Move from activity to identity – by constructing a scene which IMPLIES your wish has been fulfilled – make it a congratulatory scene.
It’s the difference between imagining getting married and imagining the ceremony (the energy goes to the ceremony) – or being married – when you imagine being congratulated on being happily married for 40 years.
And think about this, it’s easy to STOP an activity in your life – but much harder to shake in identity. Eating healthy is an activity – and it is much more likely that you will do this activity (eating healthy) – if you identify yourself – and find yourself being congratulated on – being a long term healthy eater (identity).

“It is important always to remember that the proposed action must be one which FOLLOWS the fulfillment of your desire. Also you must feel yourself into the action until it has all the vividness and distinctness of reality. For example, suppose you desire promotion in your office. Being congratulated would be an event you would encounter following the fulfillment of your desire. Having selected this action as the one you will experience in imagination, immobilize the physical body; and induce a state akin to sleep, a drowsy state, but one in which you are still able to control the direction of your thoughts, a state in which you are attentive without effort. Then visualize a friend standing before you. Put your imaginary hand into his. Feel it to be solid and real, and carry on an imaginary conversation with him in harmony with the action.” – Neville Goddard
