This a question on Manifesting Experiment 4
First of all I love this tool and especially the spreadsheet, it took some time to absorb the info but I finally managed. As I worked on one issue and attempted to neutralize it I realized that another problem in my life is currently so overpowering that it colors all other aspects of my life. So even though I may be neutralizing my bad feelings in one area the core problem just keeps me in a bad place.
My next step is of course to work on that core problem but after that should I start the process all over again for the issue I have already worked on or just revisit the statements and see how they make me feel?
My core problem is a general feeling that my life has kind of flat lined. This feeling is pervading my home situation, my love life and my business. So do I work first on the general feeling (because how I can tell this problem is through actions and feelings in all those areas) or do I work on each aspect of this problem separately.
Both approaches are valid, and will work, but you will have less work to do overall if you tackle the general core issue first because it lies at the heart of so many other issues.
It's a bit like trying to topple a tower of cards.
The cards represent the various problem issues in your life.
While you can remove the "top" cards (the high level issues) methodically and the tower of cards will also eventually vanish, the fastest way to knock it over would be to simply remove the card right at the bottom (the core issue) that supports all the others.
For related issues you have already worked on, I would only reread the statements you have already written to make sure they all feel (at least) neutral. This will only take you a few minutes at most. This is just to check that resolving the core issue has also resolved this higher-level one.
If you still feel a negative emotional reaction to anything in any statement there then there is still some cleaning up to do.
The way I would choose what issues to work on next once you have resolved a major core issue is by tackling whatever makes you feel the worst in your life right now. Don't dredge up the past, just concentrate on what's bothering you now.
That strong bad feeling is an indicator of great resistance that you are holding onto right now. And so there would be more "bang for the buck" in clearing that one first because it is likely to be one of those bottom cards (a core issue).
Hope that answers your question.

I had a similar issue when performing the experiment last night.
The first issue I tackled was procrastinating doing vibrational work.
When creating the lists I notice I was coming up with so many other areas that I procrastinate with and they seemed to all be related. And I realized that I procrastinate most activities that will enhance my life.
So in a case like mine should I focus on procrastinating as it relates to vibrational work(the issue at hand) or include all other areas as well(related issues or areas in my life).
I did finish the round and I did go from feeling terrible to feeling so much relief so I do know that I made progress.
It just got a bit confusing when adding the emotions because they were all similar in all the areas that I procrastinate in my life.
Hope that makes sense, I'll clarify or create a separate question if need be.
