Curious about what Neville Goddard meant by Catch the Mood. You’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll go over what catching the mood means and how to manifest using the Catch the Mood technique.


What does Catch the Mood mean (Law of Assumption)?

Technically Catch the Mood is not a manifestation technique but one of Neville Goddard’s popular lectures

Catch the Mood’s main takeaway is that the state of consciousness you habitually return to is your dwelling place and the lens through which you see life. It is your home.

Therefore, if you believe I am poor, you will view the world from a state of poverty.

Neville believed that man is the God of his reality; consequently, man creates his own reality. And the way to create your reality is through the power of imagination and assuming you already have your desire (living in the end). 

All you have to do is detach from the external world, go within, and focus your attention on your inner world.

He instructs that to manifest your external desire, you first have to enter the state of your desire, dwell on the state of your desire, and view the world from it. 

Below we’ll go over how to put Catch the Mood into practice. 

3 Steps to Manifest With Neville Goddard Catch the Mood Technique 


Step 1: Claim your Desire 

The first step is to claim your desire and decide it’s yours. 

Write down your desire as if you already have it in a manifestation journal. 

Writing your desires down as though you already have them plants a seed in your mind that it’s done and begins the process of materializing your wishes in the physical world.

For example, let’s say you want to manifest a relationship. 

Write down your desire as if you already have it: I am in my dream relationship with my dream partner!

If this is your first time manifesting with the Law of Assumption, work on one desire at a time for the best results. 

Step 2: Imagine the State of Wish Fulfillment

The second step is to imagine the state of the wish fulfilled. 

Prepare for bed as usual and get your mind and body into SATS. 

SATS means State Akin to Sleep, Neville’s term for a drowsy meditative state. According to Neville, this is the perfect state to visualize.

For the relationship example, go to the end of already having your relationship with your dream partner and visualize a small scene implying you already are in the relationship.

In Neville’s words: Don’t think of it; think from it. 

Think from the state of already having your desire.

For instance, don’t imagine going on dates.

Instead, a scene implying you already have the relationship could be imagining yourself moving in with your partner or grocery shopping and madly in love. 

Strive for a scene that brings out the richest emotional experience and feels real. 

Neville recommends doing one-act scenes. Keep your scene short, so your mind doesn’t wander. These small scenes are usually about 5 seconds long.

Once you have found a small scene that creates the mood of being in love, loop the same scene over and over until it takes on the tones of reality. 

Dwell on the feelings until it feels so real that your desire is here, and fall asleep.

Step 3: Assume Your Desire is Fulfilled


Step three is to assume your desire is fulfilled. The point of creative visualization (using the Law of Assumption) is to ignite your feelings and live in the end state. 

Keep working on your visualization every night until it feels so real that you already have your desire. Once your subconscious accepts your visualization, it should feel like a memory that’s already happened and happening right now.

Neville says that the state of wish fulfillment will feel false at first, but if you persist, the world will have no choice but to conform to your assumptions.

How Long Does it take for Catch the Mood Technique to Work?

How long it takes to Catch the Mood will depend on your ability to persuade yourself and how deeply rooted your limiting beliefs are.

According to a University College London Study, building a habit takes 18 to 254 days, an average of 66 days for most people. 

However, when working with the Law of Assumption, it’s not about getting logical or scientific, which is the conscious mind. 

It’s about getting your emotional body and the subconscious mind to believe, so if you believe 18 days, then 18 days. 

Try the manifestation steps out for seven days and see what happens!

How to Know If Catch the Mood Technique is Working. 

You’ll know when your visualization works when you dream about your manifestations. That is a sure sign that your subconscious mind accepts your visualization and, thus, your new assumption. 

Also, consider starting a dream journal to get more in tune with your subconscious mind. Your dreams can give you insight into your subconscious beliefs and feelings about your waking life.
