“If you will assume your desire and live there as though it were true, no power on earth can stop it from becoming a fact.”Neville Goddard
For me, grasping the concept of “living in the end” was tough. How could I live in such delusion pretending to have all these things that, when I looked around me, weren’t there? There are such negative connotations around the word delusional, but I came to learn that with manifestation, being delusional is normal, and in fact, a key component to creating your world.
I was at school one day, in the bathroom staring at myself in the mirror and allowing my mind to drown me in self-pity. I was letting my victim mentality take the wheel and drive me into a reality where everything I wanted was so far away, and I didn’t know how or when I was going to get any of it. I was particularly focused on money this day, more specifically, the lack of it in my life.
It was at this moment that I reminded myself, I could stand here and I can feel sorry for myself, I can whine about everything I don’t have or I can shift my mindset. I can start acting like I already have all the money I desire. I realized I was wearing $500 Prada glasses that I had bought myself despite the high price, and a diamond ring I had gotten years ago for my 15th birthday. I asked myself, “If you don’t have any money, how did you acquire these things in the first place?”. I started to realize that every time I buy something expensive that would technically be out of my price range, I always find a way to pay for it. If I honestly had no money, how would I have any of the things I ever bought? I changed the belief from “I have no money” to “I have so much money, and more of it is coming to me every day”.
Next, I asked myself, how do rich people walk, act, feel, talk, etc., then I started to behave in that way. I walked with my head held high, and I looked people in the eyes when I spoke to them. I started conversations with people in my classes who I had previously been intimidated by. I left school that day, went home, and did not allow myself to shift out of my millionaire mindset.
That night, I was going to dinner with my friends when I received a text from my dad, asking if I was going to be home the next day. I said yes, and he responded, telling me he had a check for me to deposit. I could not believe it, but at the same time, it made sense. I was acting all day as if I had money, and then the same night, I was being told I was getting money.
The next day I went to the bank with my dad to deposit the $2,000 check he was giving me. It was not my birthday; it was not a holiday, he had just chosen to put this money in my bank account out of what seemed like thin air, though I know I created it.
I realized, “Living in the end” is not as complicated as I believed it was, it’s simple. It’s about shifting into the mindset of the person who already has the wish fulfilled. The person who already has the money isn’t worried about paying bills, the person who already has their specific person doesn’t look at other couples and feel jealousy because they’re in their happy relationship, the person with their dream job isn’t sitting at home worrying about if they’re ever going to get hired somewhere.
Maybe I was delusional, walking around school acting as if I had something I didn’t have, but did it work? Yes, in fact, it worked at a speed in which I could have never predicted. Sometimes to get what we want out of life, we have to act in ways we’ve been conditioned to believe are wrong, but it is our job to change the way we see these things and the way in which we view the world. When we do, anything is possible.
