For reference, see the illustration below. I really don't feel excited about any of the 12 "reasons." Perhaps this is because I don't have any experience with "vibrational molding."
Should I pick my own entries for the focus blocks that make me feel better? Or would that tie me to an ineffectual, material existence/strategy? Is my problem really one of education and belief, rather than emotional management?
Or, to put it another way, how do I know I am not deluding myself?
Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, you seem to be asking why those statements in that particular example Focus Block, mentioned in the Focus Blocks method, don't make you excited?
Well, they wouldn't, because they were not your statements. They were my own statements in an actual previous Focus Block of mine - simply cut and pasted from my own Focus Blocks software. That particular block is just meant as an illustration of how the method works. It's doubtful that they would have any particular interest or excitement for you.
While, occasionally, a statement in someone else's Focus Block may genuinely feel good to you as the next statement in your own block, that would probably just be a lucky "coincidence" since we are all in different vibrational places going in different vibrational directions.
Abraham have written a book called The Astonishing Power of Emotions which does contain a number of general Focus Block/Focus Wheel statements intended to bring people to better feeling-places on a number of subjects.
And while those statements are effective (because Abraham are masters of this method!), they are still not going to be anywhere nearly as powerful as writing your own statements.
As for your statement about deluding yourself...well, the whole of physical reality is a delusion...a mirror of your personal (and mostly arbitrary) beliefs about it. Focus Blocks is a systematic method for molding those beliefs into ones that serve you rather than ones than hinder you.
So pick whatever delusion you like :)
I agree with Stingray. I just wanted to add that with a focus block, you must first identify the "feeling" that you are not happy with and try to come up with as many positive statements about the stituation that you can accept to be true until eventually you allow yourself to accept what you really want to feel.
