How to Structure Your Law of Assumption Daily Practice for Manifesting

In this article I’m going to discuss a question I’ve had on multiple occasions around Law of Assumption techniques (i.e. SATS or affirmations), namely, do you need to use techniques daily to see results in your manifesting efforts, and if so, how much time do you have to invest in using the Law of Assumption?

Before I answer this question, just to clarify that the Law of Assumption is a method of manifesting based on the teachings of Neville Goddard (1905-1972), an influential New Thought author and teacher who coined this term (the Law of Assumption).

The Law of Assumption states that your life unfolds according to your inner assumptions and beliefs, and that if you want to create change in your external world, you need to change your internal world, namely your thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, attitudes and feelings. Often to create these changes, you have to do some inner work using various techniques, and that is what this article is all about: how much work do you need to do? 

OK, that said, let’s look at how much time you need to spend on Law of Assumption techniques to see a change in your life. In this article I’m going to share my honest experiences. 

As a baseline, I believe that anyone who is consciously manifesting something should invest some time in a manifesting technique, on a daily basis.

If you’re not investing that time daily, you’re not practising the Law. You’re just dabbling.

Neville Goddard warned his students that they should be doers of “the Word”, not just hearers. (What he meant by this was that his students should be practising the Law, not just learning about it.) 

“Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourself. For he who is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like one who looks into the mirror and sees his natural face; and then he goes away and at once forgets what he looks like.”

A very common reason why students of the Law of Assumption or the Law of Attraction don’t create change in their lives is because they’re not investing that time in practising daily. Instead, they’re doing it sporadically.

If you’re investing time sporadically, you can expect sporadic results. 

Now let’s look at how much time you need to spend on using manifesting techniques for one particular desire. 

This may be as much as 60 minutes per day or it could be as little as 5 minutes per day (or more likely, something in between.)

The exact amount of time you need to spend on manifesting something per day depends on a few factors, which I cover below:

  • How far away your desire is from your current reality

As an example, if you have a significant amount of debt that you feel depressed about, but instead you’d like to be wealthy and feel carefree about your financial situation, your desire is at the moment some way away from your current reality. This indicates that your current subconscious beliefs around money are not what you want them to be. (Remember, we create according to what is in our subconscious mind – if you lack money, this means that your subconscious mind has some unwanted programming around lack and not having enough.) 

You’re probably going to have to invest quite a bit of time into manifesting something different and overwriting the subconscious programming of lack, which is the result of years of thinking and feeling the same way about money. Therefore I would start with 15-20 minutes of affirmations or SATS, at a minimum. 

Let’s have a look at another factor that affects how much time you should spend on techniques: 

  • How much experience you have in consciously manifesting

If you’ve consciously used Law of Attraction or Law of Assumption practices in the past, with some success, this indicates some skill already in this area and you may not need to invest as much time as someone who is new to manifesting. 

Another question you will want to honestly ask yourself is:

  • How has your life gone so far?

If your life has not been how you wanted it in many ways, this indicates that you have a lot of limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind that need over-riding with a healthy daily investment of time into practices. 

If you know you have a lot of childhood programming that hasn’t served you in the past, and still holds you back, this is also a sign of limiting beliefs that require quite a bit of subconscious reprogramming. 

Which techniques should you choose?

The techniques you choose should be the ones that feel right and fun to you. Everyone manifests differently. You may want to switch it up every day, or stick with the same methods every time. 

I recently wrote an article with a list of techniques here.

My Practice 

Personally, I currently spend one hour on SATS daily, and I also spend 30-60 minutes doing a Joe Dispenza guided meditation. I also sometimes listen to various affirmations on Youtube when doing the dishes. In addition, I say affirmations maybe every other day for 10-15 mins.

I make a point of using ‘dead time’ for this, such as when I am going for a walk, doing dishes or cleaning, otherwise it gets that I don’t have enough time for all this inner work. 

Why do I spend so much time on all this?

Firstly, I do not have a track record of consciously creating much of what I want. I have had a lot of success professionally, but not as much success in my personal life (although this has changed recently and is getting better all the time.)

I also had a lot of negative programming from childhood. I’m aware I have had many limiting beliefs in the past and I’m committed to reprogramming my subconscious for the long term. 

On the other hand, if you’re someone who already has the life they want, but there’s one more thing you’d like to create, you can probably get away with 10-15 mins per day or less focusing on your desire. 

Persisting is the key

I hope it comes across in this article that manifesting using the Law of Assumption takes work and commitment. You need to commit to a daily practice if you want to see consistent results, even if it’s just 10-15 mins per day.

PS. just a little note that some individuals never need to use techniques in order to manifest.

The only purpose of techniques & practices is to put you into the state of the wish fulfilled. As an example, this means that if you are currently struggling with a chronic illness, you need to spend some of your time feeling how you would feel if the illness didn’t exist. You tell yourself you are healthy, and you ignore the 3D reality which tells you something other than this. You feel relaxed and secure in the idea that you are healthy and nothing can stop this from manifesting in the 3D world, because you decree it so, and you are the operant power in your world. 

Some people can manage to anchor this reality into their awareness without any help from techniques or practices, by just slipping into the state of the wish fulfilled as often as possible during the day. (As an aside, on top of using practices, this is a great thing to do, and I recommend you also pop into the state of the wish fulfilled as often as possible throughout the day if you can.) 

But many people cannot manifest this way alone. I cannot. I need daily practices to keep me on track with my mental diet and to be able to enter into the state of the wish fulfilled throughout the day. If I stop with my practices, things start to go downhill within several days and I get off track. I feel like the daily practice anchors me in the wish fulfilled for the day, and then I can more easily access it as needed throughout the day.

So be aware that the vast majority of people will need a daily practice. The people who do not ever need any practices or techniques tend to be people who have already done a considerable amount of inner work and already have experience with consciously manifesting.

Further Reading:

I offer a free online resource for manifesting your desired reality using the Law of Assumption — it’s a collection of online articles which are presented in the right order so that you can use them as a ‘how to’ guide. It’s quite a comprehensive resource and can help take you from A to B with almost any intention. You can find that here.

    Thank you, Anna, for these informative and powerful articles. Dr. Bruce Lipton does a lot of work about reprogramming. Also, he lists ways to reprogram the subconscious mind on his site under the resources page. One of them he has used hims of and swears by it called Psych-K. It’s a way to reprogram quickly and efficiently. Some of us need support in this and luckily it’s out there. Again, thank you!

  2. Cody

    I think the LoA is finally working for me. But I had to go through a lot of healing before I could get it to work.

    • Anna Sayce

      Hi Cody, that’s so great to hear. The Law of Assumption was always working but this time it is working in your favour. It can sometimes take time to create change so make sure to persist!

  3. Gladdie Altura

    Hi Anna, I’ve been mostly including affirmations so far in my day and a bit of SATs. How is it you are able to spend 60 minutes doing SATs in one day? Are you doing different ones or repeatedly focusing on one? So far I’ve found I’ve mostly done SATs for one or two particular areas of my life but only last for a few minutes.
