I am posting this process as a community wiki as a couple of you requested more details.
The process is one of Abraham's and is in fact called "The Book of Positive Aspects". Abraham suggests using it to raise our vibration and focus on those positive aspects of people and things we feel good about. I have in fact used it successfully to raise my vibration when someone is irking me or I don't feel too good about them. By focusing on only their positive aspects, what was irking me about them seemed to literally disappear and they began showing up in my reality in a mostly positive way.
By focusing on the positve we begin raising our vibration to one of appreciation which is a powerful vibration. The more positive aspects we search for, the more we will find and our relationships with these people will change for the better. The more consistently we practice this, the more dominant the vibration will become and our reality will reflect this.
There are many benefits to this process - you'll feel good doing it, your point of attraction will improve, your relationships will improve and more great things and people will begin showing up in your life.
If something about the person or thing begins to irk me again, I am able to move to a different perspective fairly quickly by pulling out my book so it is a greattt!! tool to keep.
This question is marked "community wiki".
Thanks for posting this, Michaela...it is something that I think many people will find helpful.
One thing I would like to add is that you can build up Positive Aspects lists incrementally in exactly the same way as you build up Focus Blocks...and this is actually what I do myself to make The Focus Blocks Method even more powerful.
When I randomly choose the next thing to work on, I also have good-feeling Positive Aspects lists shuffled in between the Focus Blocks. (Something to remember about Positive Aspects lists is to use them also for things you already feel good about so that it makes you feel even better!)
Every time a Positive Aspects list comes up during the Focus Blocks selection process, I commit to writing at least one more Positive Aspect regarding that subject just as I would for a Focus Block.
Doing this adds a whole new dimension of power, fun and upliftment to molding vibration.
Try it and see. :)

You can use the "Positive aspects" notebook to clear away old troubles as well, when they come back to you from time-to-time. Example: my feelings were hurt all of these years due to a mean teacher I had for the fifth grade as a child, and the hurtful things she would say and do to us children. Uncomfortable memories would come up to this day.
In fact, on Facebook, a number of us from "the old neighborhood" were chatting about how mean this lady was and the bad effects it had on our childhoods. Dwelling upon it was only making it worse!
I put this subject in my positive aspects notebook, and before I knew it, I had filled a whole page with positive aspects of the 5th grade, including some humorous scenes with the teacher, and at least some things about her that were good. "She took us on the most interesting class trips" for example. Before I knew it, the bad feelings had melted away, and were replaced with a sort of amusement and appreciation.
This can be a very powerful exercise and I highly recommend it for just about anything that is bothering you, even old troubles!

this is nice to know. i havent tried it tho but i have a question. do u write out more of these positive aspects each time u feel bad about the person or thing or each time they annoy u or do u simply read what you have written before?

HEY MICHAELA THIS SOUNDS VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT JOHN DEMARTINI DESCRIVES IN HIS BOOK THE "BREAKTHROUGH EXPERIENCE", I THINK YOUR VERSION IS SHORTER THOUGH, COS U FOCUS ONLY ON THE POSITIVE WHEREAS DEMARTINI FOCUSES ON BOTH THE POSTIVE AND NEGATIVE. SORT OFF LIKE LISTING THE PROS AND CONS. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT YOUR WAY IS MUCH SIMPPLER AND IT WORKS. THANKS ONCE AGAIN.
