What statement do I focus on when starting the focus block?

This is just something I was always uncertain about

When starting the focus block do I focus on the How do I want to feel statement and work Back to a statement that is positive and believable?


Do I focus on the current belief statement and work Up to a positive believable statement?

Which is the best way?

Thank you.

Abraham's Focus Wheel method suggests you decide on the "How do I want to feel?" statement and write that at the center of the Focus Wheel. You then write your statements of belief around that center. Another variation is to write your target statement at the top of the wheel (away from the wheel) and write your best-feeling statement in the center.

I used to do that sort of thing with Focus Blocks (Manifesting Experiment 2) in the early days. I may even have done it that way in the videos by writing the target statement at the very top of each Focus Blocks worksheet - can't remember at the moment :)

But what I've found over the years, after doing many hundreds of these Focus Blocks, is that it really doesn't matter.

All I do is simply start with what I currently believe as my starting block statement and just make sure that each subsequent statement gives me a feeling of relief from, at least, the starting statement.

If I am always following the relief then I am always heading towards my target even if I haven't articulated what the target is.

@Stingray-good clarification.i always stcuk that what should be my next statement when working on a focus block.it is always difficult for me to write next statement.now your reply clears that i should write something for relief instead of writing affirmations...:)

@Zee - Yes, that's right. Relief is the key. No matter where you are on the vibrational scale, reaching for relief will always guide you automatically to the next level. And remember also that every statement must also be a statement that feels true to you, it must be something you believe right now. If you leap too far forwards in one go, the process won't work.

So when you add any new statement to the Focus Block, always make sure:

  1. You believe it
  2. It brings you relief

@Zee - And just one more tip that I've not mentioned before directly in relation to Focus Blocks: If you ever get stuck about which statement to write next, take a look at the Abraham Grid idea and think about where your vibration currently is in the quadrants. All you have to do next then, if you are stuck, is try and write a better-feeling statement that you believe that reaches into the next quadrant or solidifies your existing quadrant

@Zee - I've been doing Focus Wheels (which evolved into Focus Blocks) since the '90s and, over that time, I've almost developed an intuitive sense about which statement to write next in the Focus Blocks. But every one of my Focus Blocks/Wheels always follows the pattern that the Abraham Grid outlines. That's what makes it such a great concept - The Abraham Grid provides a practical map as to how to write your next statements. And, after a while, you'll just naturally write them that way.
