Today we will talk about the “Mental Diets” book by Neville Goddard. In this book, author Goddard explains the mental regimen necessary for developing a strong mindset. A mental diet means constant monitoring and observation of your thoughts.
The central part of a mental diet is to immediately replace any negative thought with a positive and energetic thought that will bring you joy and lead you towards your goal. A mental diet is an excellent tool for manifestation.
The Law of Attraction states that you attract in your life what you focus on, and the mental diet is a tool that helps you focus on thoughts that are helpful in your manifestation journey.
Neville Goddard (Born February 15, 1905, in Barbados) was known as one of the most influential teachers in the New Thought movement for many years. He gave hundreds of lectures throughout the United States and even had his TV show in Los Angeles in the ’50s! His philosophy states that we create our reality through our thoughts or the human imagination.
As we all know, talking is essential to stay connected with human beings. In this way, we can talk in two ways: with the inner world, ourselves, and the outer world. And most of our life situations, happiness, success, failure, sadness, etc., are driven by our inner dialogue.
You must have noticed that when you talk to yourself positively about a goal or circumstances, you feel much happier and more positive, and you are also able to achieve your goal by improving the circumstances for the maximum time. But the problem is that most people need to learn how to talk to themselves to strengthen their minds to achieve their desired thing.
So in this book, the author answers us about this kind of Mental Diet and the Law of Attraction. The author, Neville, explains that a mental diet is an essential tool for your manifestation.
As we all know, the Law of Attraction is a statement that the thing we focus on the most, we use to attract in our life. Be it happiness, sadness, success, or failure.
And in that case, the Mental Diet is an essential tool that inspires and helps you to focus on those positive thoughts which are very important for your Manifestation Journey.
Let’s know about using Mental Diet with the law of attraction easily.
Law of Attraction
Suppose you want to get a new job. With the Law of Attraction, it is important to think positively and be happy and mainly focus on those thoughts so that you can get the desired job as soon as possible. If you do this, a mental diet will significantly help you.
By doing this, you will feel that by thinking positively and happy about your job, you are automatically removing those negative and limiting thoughts from your mind that were preventing you from using it. And at the same time, you start feeling very positive, happy, and confident about your job.
Is there any distance in your relationship with your partner, or if love is decreasing? So by using it, you can increase love and companionship between each other. To do this, rehearse good, happy, and joyous moments with your partner and think more and more about their positivity.
By thinking like this, you will see that the negative thoughts about them seem to be automatically removed from your mind, and positive and happy thoughts are converted to yours, by which you can strengthen the relationship and love of both of you.
Thus, these techniques you can use in other fields and areas to achieve your desired result. All we need is to think positively and happy about the desired goal and take necessary action in your view for taking help from the law of attraction.
Combining the Law of Attraction and Mental Diet is a kickass recipe for manifestation. And it would help if you tried it once to check the look, feel and achieve your desired result.
How to do a Mental Diet
We need to have a solid reason to have a mental diet. Do you want to be positive or happy, or do you want to do a Mental Diet to achieve a particular goal? If you want to be more positive and happy, you can do so by following the steps:
- Do meditation
Do meditation daily for at least 10 minutes. It will help you in awareness and solution of what is going on in your head or mind and what thoughts are going on. And when you know those, replace those thoughts with your desirable thoughts. It will be easy for you.
- By Monitoring the thoughts and inner conversations
The kind of thoughts that are going through your mind daily and the conversations you are having with yourself, we should consciously focus and monitor whether those thoughts and inner conversations are desirable or not. If thoughts and conversations are desirable, keep them; if not, change to use your desirable thoughts and conversations.
- Change as you wish
Mindfully monitor thoughts, inner conversations, and interactions with others, and maximize your desirable positive, happy, and goal-oriented thoughts and conversations.
Now if you want to do a mental diet to manifest any goal, then you should follow four steps:
If you want to get a desirable job, then use a mental diet to make it easier for yourself; feel that you have got that job quickly, and after that, your close ones congratulate you. Everyone is so happy.
- Affirm your success
Talk to yourself about your good conversation and positive result with the interviewer in the job interview. Tell yourself something like “I’m going to get the job” or “I’m going to crack the interview”.
- Imagine conversation and success
Imagine you communicate very well with the interviewer in the interview room while confidently answering everyone, closing the job in your favor. You got the job. And after getting the job, you are pretty happy, and your close ones are also happy.
- Practice until you feel the reality
Practice as much to achieve the job, talk positively, talk happiness, imagination, congratulations, etc., as you achieve your goal. And yes, it is beneficial.
The author says that the inner conversation of a person plays a vital role in attracting his life; if your inner conversation is the same, then the circumstances of your life will also be the same. If you want to improve your outdoor lifestyle, the first step is to improve the conversation within.
Importance of Mental Diet
Knowing about the importance and uses of a mental diet may raise the question: Does this happen? Can it attract our positivity, happiness, and desirable things?
To answer this question, let us see examples of those who use a mental diet and have felt a lot of changes in their life.
It was 1955 when writer Neville Goddard came across a lady who was very disappointed with her employer. The lady thought that her employer did not value her and did not respect her. And that’s why the lady started getting demotivated towards her job, and her boss was less interested than before. The woman writer came to Goddard for tips on solving her problem.
First, the author asked the lady what she thought of her employer, and as people usually do, she said disappointed. So Neville Goddard advised the lady to think about her employer for a few days with only positive and happy thoughts in her mind.
That lady practiced this exercise and felt unhonoured that now finding her a good boss, and she is also very interested in her job. Her employer was now more patient, understanding, and respectable in his eyes, and the lady’s job was starting to look better. So did their job conditions change from negativity to positivity? It changed to become the desirable circumstances.
And in this way, we saw how our inner world drives our outer world.
Suppose someone wants to achieve their external circumstances, external happiness, external positivity, external goals, etc. In that case, the first step is to focus on their internal conversations and thoughts and change them to desirable positive, happy, and goal-oriented ones. All these achievements in the outer world seemed easy to do.
Benefits of Mental Diet
So many benefits that prove the Mental Diet to be robust and effective. Let us discuss some of them.
- The first benefit is self-awareness
Self-awareness benefits our thoughts, soul, body, and circumstance. We can attract desirable, positive, and pleasant thoughts towards us by being mindful of our thoughts. By doing this, we have the power to keep our minds calm and our soul to get happy.
And as we discussed earlier, when our inner world remains happy, positive, and peaceful, similarly in the outer world, we find happiness, success, and positivity, and it becomes easy to live with it.
- It has made your mood better
You have felt that when you make positive happy talking to yourself, you feel better. On the other hand, if you think negatively, are disappointed, or do something wrong with someone, there is inner dissatisfaction and more internal fighting feeling.
Therefore, if we are talking positively and happy to ourselves, our circumstances, and the people around us, show positive things related to our goal. So this exercise will help in staying in a good mood.
- Increase your inner positive vibrations
Inner positive vibrations are the power that the more we use, the more positivity, happiness, and desirable things we attract. And remove the negative, frustrating, limiting things that seem to happen automatically.
You have felt that when you do your most obsessive or joyous work, you feel so optimistic that positive thoughts automatically come into your mind, and negative ones get removed from yourself. Your focus is on doing positive work, success, and happiness.
- This Mental Diet will help you get away from Monkey Mind
Monkey mind means disturbed mind—those who face problems focusing on one thing. Instead of focusing on one thing till a particular time, their mind wanders here and there in borrowed things.
In such a situation, we can also be concerned for some time due to not focusing on our positive, happiness, success, and desirable things. But if you practice a mental diet, you can remove your monkey mind and replace it with a laser focus.
- Mental Diet also helps you to become more mindful
Mindfulness means an active mind. An active mind is a mind that carefully observes and analyzes a situation to make better decisions about doing better things.
And as we all know that decisions decide our lives. If we make better decisions with mindfulness and an active mind, we can play a vital role in improving our lives.
- With the help of a Mental Diet, you can manifest anything
Manifestation means to make your desirable goals easy. And in such a situation, a mental diet helps in taking better action and thinking positively with a focus towards our desired goal. Let’s make our desired goal as easy as possible.
