The Law of Attraction and the Law of Assumption share many similarities, and it’s quite common for an individual or someone new to confuse the two laws.
According to the law of assumption, people create their own reality through their thoughts and beliefs.
In contrast, the law of attraction suggests that by focusing their thoughts on what they want, people can attract positive experiences and material possessions.
They both cover the same core concepts while using different techniques and terminology.
If you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, you’ll see that too.
That is, I’m not saying that they are perfectly aligned on top of each other, but they serve the same principle, of being able to manifest your deepest desires.
What is the Idea Behind the Law of Assumption vs Law of Attraction?
The main ideas are:
The Law of Attraction is the idea of manifesting what you want by thinking about it, meditating on it, concentrating on it, visualizing yourself with it, and imagining it in your current life.
It is the belief that if you think positive thoughts, positive things will come to you. Bad things will happen if you think bad thoughts.
If you think about and focus on the visual/idea of yourself having your desired results, then you will manifest them
The Law of Assumption is the concept of manifesting what you want by believing that you already have it. That is your current reality. You force your mind to ‘assume’ you already have that item.

What Are the Differences Between the Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction?
Here’s a breakdown of the differences between the Law of Assumption and the Law of Attraction:
1. I AM vs Universe.
According to the Law of Assumption, there is no God or higher power.
You are the creator of your reality, and you create it based on your inner world. That inner world is your current state of mind.
Everything in your environment is nothing more than a reflection of your consciousness.
As a result, even “God” is just a reflection of your inner state. You are the creator of your own reality.
On the contrary, the Law of Attraction states that the Source Energy (or Universe, or “God”) Always responds to your vibrational requests and provides you with results that are a vibrational match for you.
If your desire is supported by positive energy like happiness, joy, and/or love, you will attract positive outcomes.
If, however, your desire is backed up by negative energy such as jealousy, envy, desperation, etc, you will experience negative results. You are creating with the Universe, not by yourself.

2. Assumption vs Like Attracts Like.
According to the Law of Assumption, what you assume about the world, what you assume about others, and what you assume about yourself is reflected back to you in your life.
As Neville used to say, what you believe and assume to be true hardens into fact. The key to manifesting any desire is to embody the state of your wish fulfilled.
But you won’t be able to manifest your desire as long as your state doesn’t match your desire, because we don’t manifest what we want, we manifest what we are.
“The world is yourself pushed out. Ask yourself what you want and then give it to yourself! Do not question how it will come about; just go your way knowing that the evidence of what you have done must appear, and it will.”~ Neville Goddard
The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. If you are in vibrational alignment with your desire, you will manifest it.
So, the key to using the Law of Attraction to manifest your desires is to become vibrationally aligned with them and attract them into your reality.
As a result, every day we create our realities, both consciously and unconsciously.

3. No Free Will vs Free Will.
The Law of Assumption states that there is no free will because “You are the “God” of your own reality, and everyone plays the roles you assign them.”
Obviously, you have the ability to alter your consciousness and manifest what you want in a different way. You wouldn’t be able to direct your own mind if there was no free will.
The Law of Attraction, on the other hand, claims that free will exists and that everyone has the ability to manifest their desires, but only to the extent that it does not interfere with the free will of others.
According to the Law of Attraction, “Due to everyone being connected via Source/Universe/Higher Power, Vibrational Frequencies can influence another person’s Vibration, and the highest and strongest Vibration wins.”
Is the Law of Assumption a Universal Law?
Although the Law of Assumption shares many similarities with the 12 Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction, the Law of Vibration, the Law of Correspondence, and the Law of Rhythm, it’s not a Universal Law.
Neville Goddard is the creator of the Law of Assumption, which he often referred to as “God’s Law” because, in his opinion, it is a universal law by which everything exists and manifests.
Although the scientific community does not recognize it as a Universal Law, we can understand what he meant.
There are many more similarities between the Law of Attraction and the Law of Assumption than differences, but there are differences nonetheless, and I believe it all comes down to what works best for you through trial and error.
The main difference between them is that the Law of Attraction is more focused on focusing on a mindset that attracts similar experiences, whereas the Law of Assumption is based on your own understanding of things.
Everyone sees things differently, so we all manifest our own unique journeys through how we assume based on our experiences.
