Creation Is Finished – Neville Goddard Explained


Creation is finished.

What does this statement mean?

And how can it help you create the life you want?

Neville explained the concept in his popular book ‘The Power of Awareness’.

“…all that you ever have been or ever will be — in fact, all that mankind ever was or ever will be — exists now. This is what is meant by creation, and the statement that creation is finished means nothing is ever to be created, it is only to be manifested.”

According to his philosophy, all possibilities for how your life could pan out exist right now.

There is a version in which you are a beggar.

A version where you are the president.

Where you are on the moon.

Where you are a police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department.

All possibilities are superimposed on each other and ready to be realized. (We will talk about how to do this later.)

The mystic writer Vadim Zeland calls the field of unrealized potential ‘the alternatives space’.

The nature of life permits you to experience only a single moment at a time.

You choose only one life path from a catalogue of infinity.

Where is the proof that creation is finished?


Many mystics believe in the Veil of Amnesia.

It is said when souls incarnate as human beings they forget everything about the ‘other side’.

They forget their past lives and even their purpose for this current life.

In this way, the game of life becomes more exciting, allowing souls to choose the path they wish to experience.

A video game becomes boring when the player already knows every obstacle to be encountered in every mission.

Not knowing is what creates novelty.

Hence why it is necessary for souls to come here with a clean slate.

However, from time to time there appear to be glitches in the life-matrix.

These glitches occur most obviously during near-death experiences, past-life regressions and more commonly the feeling of déjà vu.

“The fact that you can never be anything that you are not already or experience anything not already existing explains the experience of having an acute feeling of having heard before what is being said, or having met before the person being met for the first time, or having seen before a place or thing being seen for the first time.”

The premonitions we experience are often discredited by the conscious mind as being mere coincidences.

This habit of disregarding anything which can’t be explained by modern science is not rationality but intellectual laziness.

When you probe deeper into some of these odd occurrences, the idea of creation being finished becomes more believable.

Creation Is Finished & Scientific Discoveries

The laws of nature have already been established by the Architect of the Universe (whatever force that might be).

Each great discovery by mankind is simply the result of our increased awareness.

The higher our awareness, the more ‘secrets’ of energy and matter will be unveiled to us.

“What is called creativeness is only becoming aware of what already is. You simply become aware of increasing portions of that which already exists.”


The genius never creates anything.

He is simply a vessel for manifesting what already exists.  

This is something Nikola Tesla confessed in a letter to his mother.

“When I was looking at the lightning bulb to shine with ”my” wireless electricity, I realized that I wasn’t the maker of all this…the law I thought I ‘invented’’ actually always existed. I was just the vessel blessed with inspiration to formulate and explain it to the mankind.”

Creation being finished explains why many of the great inventions were discovered simultaneously.

Often by different people who had never met nor communicated with each other.

One of the most notable cases being the discovery of Calculus by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz.

Manifestation work with creation is finished

All this creation is finished stuff is great and all,

But how can we use it to get what we want in life?

The method is simple.

You highlight and increase the probability of a particular life potential being realized through your awareness.

Neville explains the method succinctly.

“What determines the events which you encounter? And the answer is your concept of yourself.”

Who you assume yourself to be through imagination slowly shapes your outer world.

You assume to be something specific and hold that assumption in your mind’s eye until your subconscious mind believes it to be true.

When your mind accepts the ideal, you will be compelled to take certain actions consistent with the vision.

You walk across the ‘Bridge of incidents’ – a series of synchronicities and serendipitous events which lead you to realizing the reality you envisioned.

If creation is finished and we create through our assumption why isn’t everyone successful?

Some realities cannot be achieved because your disbelief in them happening is too high.

Let’s say you are a beggar, the idea of becoming a billionaire will likely seem implausible.

So if the beggar assumes himself to be a billionaire, he will likely meet a torrent of counteracting beliefs which will destroy the possibility of the manifestation occurring.

He won’t take the first step required for the realization of the billionaire reality occurring.

Now if the same beggar would assume himself to be happily employed,

His subconscious much easier accepts that idea and gets to work in realizing it.

This is why the rich get richer.

Not necessarily because of the money they have, but because of their self-belief.

When one is doing well, it becomes easier to aim for higher levels of success.

A notable example is Donald Trump who went from a business mogul to the president of the United States, an unlikely outcome which surprised many.

Belief does not discriminate, your level of faith will create your outer reality.

History is filled with countless examples of people who came from nothing and achieved incredible success purely from their self-belief.

A great example was recently highlighted in the Arnold documentary.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, whilst sitting on his childhood bed in Thal, Austria, explained how he would constantly visualize himself becoming a bodybuilding champion and actor as a kid.

“I would be working out in my house. There was no sound. Nothing. And I could think and concentrate and visualize how I’m gonna become a bodybuilding champion. How I’m gonna move to America. How I’m gonna get into the movies. How I’m gonna make millions of dollars.”

—     Arnold Schwarzenegger (Arnold, Episode 1: Athlete)

Many people struggle to believe in the Law of Assumption because it deals with the intangible.

Thoughts are invisible and their power is difficult to discern.

The best way to prove the existence of these principles is by exploring them in your own life.

Change your self-concept so you can claim what is already yours.

Do this, and you will be one step closer to living and dying well
