Remembering Who You Truly Are

Everyone has, within them, infinite creative power. Everyone has infinite creative power within them for everyone is, in fact, that creative power.

Beyond the visible, there is the invisible, and within the invisible there is the infinite creative power that you truly are.

Too many of us — and, as always, by “many of us”, I am really only speaking of myself — become lost in a sea of doubts, fears, and anxieties. Too many of us doubt or deny our own infinite creative abilities. Too many of us doubt or deny who we truly are. Too many of us are living lives that are not ideal for ourselves, due to doubting or denying who we truly are.

Moving out of this paradigm, one of powerlessness, is easy, but it requires persistence and exploration. Without persistence, it is unlikely that you will be able to use your creative powers in the ways that you intend, and without exploration, it is unlikely that you will understand the creative powers that you possess and the creative power that you are.

Once you know who you truly are, though, you must walk with confidence and poise, for you know that you are powerful beyond all belief.

Falling away from these assumptions, and back into a paradigm of powerlessness, is surprisingly easy.

Thoughts are so powerful that we can convince ourselves that we are not who we really are without much effort. Because of this, it is always a good idea to nurture the assumptions of power and agency that we hold and are, in turn, continuing to develop.

Making The Choice To Nurture Powerful Assumptions

As creative beings, we can convince ourselves of any truth, no matter how silly or ridiculous it may appear to be.

One of the most common, and widely-accepted, “truths” is that we are powerless beings with no genuine agency or control over our lives and experiences.

With extraordinary ease, you can find this “truth” in thousands of sources, every single day. Whether it’s from your favorite newspaper, an advertisement on a billboard, a book that you are reading, a piece of music — the list is endless — this is one of the most popular “truths” available, and by continuing to engage with it, we can easily persuade ourselves that we are not who we truly are but, rather, someone of very little value and power.

Engaging with those sources is not a “bad” thing or the “wrong” thing. But, if we choose to nurture that particular truth in our minds, rather than accepting and nurturing the truths of who we really are and what we are really capable of, we may lose sight of who we are and what we are capable of.

For us to persist in the knowing that we are beings of extraordinary power, it is important to continually nurture the assumptions that comprise this knowing.

For myself, I read the works of Neville Goddard every single day, while also reading the works of other New Thought writers that affirm these same ideas. By doing this, I continually affirm the knowledge of who I am, which allows me to see and act with greater clarity.

You can, of course, read or engage with whoever you want. But, I urge you to find a thinker that speaks to you on a personal level, and to read their works regularly. You do not need to do so everyday, but I recommend doing so as often as possible. By engaging with the works of that particular thinker, and the ideas that they are sharing, you will nurture the assumptions of power and creativity that allow you to live the best and most beautiful life that you are meant to live.

Along with that, I engage in a simple daily practice that consists of three actions. Each one of these actions takes five-minutes to perform. My initial experience was less than note-worthy, but as I persisted, I found myself changing, and as I changed, the world changed.

The daily practice that I perform consists of gratitude, affirmations, and a single inner conversation.

Expressing my gratitude allows me to appreciate what I already have and what I am experiencing. Appreciating what I have and what I am experiencing allows for feelings of abundance and peace.

Affirming the qualities and values that I wish to nurture and possess more of allows for those qualities and values to become more present within my life. Rather than repeating these affirmations in a mechanical and repetitive manner, though, I do so with feeling and allow sensations to come over me. Doing so allows me to use my imagination in a manner that allows for new assumptions of self to be created.

Engaging with my inner conversations in a way that affirms who I am and what I am creating ensures that I am who I wish to be and that I create what I wish to create. Making use of the power of thought, every single day, ensures that I remain the operator of my life, rather than a spectator of the grand operation that surrounds me.

Every single one of these habits — reading, being grateful, affirming, conversing within — serves as a means of nurturing the assumptions that I must possess to live the life that I desire to live, while also serving as a means of harnessing the infinite creative powers that we all possess.


In the end, we are all beings of extraordinary creative power, for we are all, at our deepest and most fundamental level, the creative power that we possess.

Losing sight of this is often far too easy than it should be, but if we continue to nurture our minds with messages that affirm who we truly are, while engaging in habits that allow us to direct our abilities, we will never falter from the truths that allow us to live the life that we are meant to live and the greatness that we are meant to share with the world.
