The title of this post has nothing to do with Neville’s book Feeling is the Secret. But, I want to talk about this topic because it seems that there is a lot of confusion with it. New people are discovering Neville’s teachings every day. It may seem like we are always going in circles in regards to some of the topics that he covers and this is one of them.
In the beginning, many of us had this feeling that there must be only one technique which is good and works for everything. One technique that is going to bring us our desires. And yet, Neville has been telling us from the beginning: feeling is the secret. Not the technique. It’s the feeling.
If you are feeling like you have to do one specific technique or else you won’t get your desire, ask yourself where is this coming from. And there is nothing wrong with that, if you actually have such a strong belief in this one technique that you actually do get everything you want just by using it. The problem occurs when people think that one technique is better than the other.
Recently there has been an influx of messages and posts asking if you can manifest something if you only use a mental diet or if you only use SATS or some other technique, without combining them. This is what prompted me to write this post and to let you all know: IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT TECHNIQUE YOU ARE USING!
You could be using a technique Neville never talked about. You could come up with your own technique. Stop looking for a perfect technique that is going to magically bring your manifestation into your world because there is no such thing.
It’s not the technique that makes the manifestation come to pass. It’s your conviction. You can also call it belief or knowing. It goes by different names but it comes down to the same thing – you knowing you have something. Know that the creation is finished.
Everything you can conceive of already exists.
There is nothing to worry about. The only thing you have to do is align with what you want by persistently focusing on it. This is a simplified description of the manifesting process and if you are new to this, you may be wondering how to get to that point.
By using the techniques.
Does this mean there is one magical technique that works for everyone? No. It does not. Just because Neville talks a lot about SATS, it does not mean that is the only technique that you are allowed to use. It also doesn’t mean that that is the only technique that works. It most certainly doesn’t make it this magical tool that guarantees that you will receive your desire.
The point of a technique is to build the feeling of knowing, conviction, naturalness, belief.
You can choose any technique that you like. It doesn’t have to be the one that everybody else is using. You can even come up with your own. Choose one that you can use persistently and consistently to build the feeling of knowing, conviction, naturalness, belief, whatever you want to call it.
So, to anyone who is new to conscious manifesting and got stuck on this part, I hope this helps you see the real point of techniques and it helps you see that this is not some magical wand that you wave and it gives you what you want. You can use a thousand techniques and still fail if you keep going back to the feeling of lack. What you have to do once you get the feeling of knowing is to sustain it.
It does not mean you have to think about this thing you want all day, only positively. It means that you have to think about it from the state of the wish fulfilled when you think about it. Instead of wondering about the how, the when and other things that we like to wonder about when we are in the state of lack, we think about it as if we already have it.
What does this have to do with the techniques, you may ask? When you catch that feeling of knowing, you will notice that your state shifted from the state of lack to the state of having. This state is also known as the state of the wish fulfilled. While in that state, you will not have to consciously change your thoughts to fit that state. Your thoughts will automatically align with your wish fulfilled.
So, relax, choose one technique and stick with it. You can’t choose the wrong technique. You can only choose the technique that works for you. Choose the one that you feel seems most natural to you. For me, that is mental diet. For you, it could be scripting. Does that give one of us more chance to succeed? No. Our chances are equal. Because the technique we choose doesn’t matter… The feeling does!
