So I have been familiarising myself more and more with a method of manifestation where I just feel what it would feel like to have achieved my goal. Usually to do this, I sit down meditative-style, and put myself into a mild state of self-hypnosis. I then tell myself to suspend all disbelief, and to imagine myself in an alternate reality where I have achieved this goal.
So far so good, and I have been able several times to bypass resistance and make myself feel like I am living the life where I have what I wanted to manifest. I usually use gratitude and appreciation to power it up.
My question is this: I know that there is a lot of resistance regarding some of these things I manifest. I used to try to manifest things by releasing resistance using EFT and the Sedona method, but these methods don't work very well for me, for some reason. I find myself more frustrated than relieved most of the time. I've tried all I can with these methods, so I'm not looking for answers telling me how to apply them better - I prefer to use this method I am using now.
My question is, in purely technical terms, what happens to this resistance when I focus on feeling good about a subject? I know it does dissolve a lot of the resistance, but more in a 'behind the scenes' way than if I would use EFT for example. What I am basically doing is focusing on Step Three - Allowing. I know that allowing releases resistance in the form of negative beliefs, but... how? (technically speaking)

Hey cassiopeia, I can really relate to your post. I practiced EFT and Sedona for more than two years... With very little results. While I am grateful for the lessons I got from these methods, and the ability to notice my emotions that developed from that practice, today I understand things better and my life is changing because of that.
The problem with EFT and Sedona, and many other methods, is that they are focused on "eliminating the negative". I found it very hard to really let go without focusing on the positive. When you try to eliminate the negative, you automatically focus on it. It is very tricky and I know of many people who fall into that, including myself in the past.
The keys to understand in order to really improve your vibration and release resistance, in my opinion, are :
There is a lot of information about focus wheels on youtube, I suggest you have a look. It is absolutely excellent.
Also I suggest you let go of your goals and make your only intention a one of feeling positive about the subject automatically - and just enjoy the feeling until you get there.

As you practice and master the art of letting go and allowing, the release of resistance just happens gradually and naturally, this is because you are more focused on feeling good rather than focused on trying to manifest a desire, so you can feel good afterwards. Sooner or later we'll wake up to the fact that conscious creation isn't about manifesting desires but more about following our joy, which melts away the resistance even faster as positive thinking [appreciation] becomes our dominant focus [vibration] and positive momentum is achieved. For myself practicing the art of allowing and letting go has been the fastest and most effective way to release resistance bar none, allowing the negative thoughts [resistance] as they surface, to be as they are, with no emotional attachment or influence from them their calling, allowing them to weaken and run their course in their own time, while focusing on the more positive aspects of life, building more and more positive momentum, thus releasing even more resistance, and allowing the more preferred realities to unfold in perfect timing. Notice how many times I've typed the word allowing in these last few sentences, that's the idea here, to allow and not to resist, so it only makes sense that the more you are allowing, the less you are resisting, it just occurs naturally, that's as technical as I can get.
