Some focus blocks become repetitive, dull and makes me feel more helpless about the subject after some time. Is this normal and what should I do about it?
For example, maybe one of my focus block issues might be "The train is so packed every second of the day even during non-peak hours
So maybe my best feeling thought out of the whole 12 sentences I wrote would be "Would you rather have a train that is completely full of people, or a train that only contains you ALONE in a single carriage..? The latter would indeed sound a little bit tad scary for me. I would choose having the train full if that was the case." I left the other statements out since I figured it didn't really matter as the issue is individual and unique to me, including the last one.
Now the problem here is, of course, the train is going to be packed for at least a few more years to come (or maybe even forever). So naturally, this issue would keep resurfacing up almost every single day you take the train. I could continue to try and mold this particular subject or just keep re-reading the statements I have written, but after a certain period of time you would feel numb and more helpless about this particular subject when you know (or believe) deep down inside you that this situation is not going to change anytime soon. It would reach a point where re-reading the statements just doesn't seem to do any help in shifting your vibration at all, if you get what I mean.
This example could be replaced by almost anything else in life that continously resurfaces in your life..
So is this normal and what should I do about it?
EDIT: I figured that I would add the rest of my statements so that maybe it might be able to help some others too :
So your issue is? ...
and you are saying that your "best-feeling" thought of relief out of the 12 you've written is? ...
Obviously I don't know about your particular vibrational make-up but that statement doesn't bring me any relief at all. It sounds self-berating to me :)
For a statement to be a valid statement in a Focus Block, it must:
What you've put forward as your "best-feeling" statement doesn't seem to fit either of those criteria to me.
To give you an example of a Focus Block, I'm now going to imagine myself in a situation that you describe and I'm going to just type out a series of statements that I believe and bring me relief (if I was in that situation you describe).
I'll stop there. I just knocked off 6 statements in a couple of minutes and even I can feel some relief about a subject that doesn't actually affect me :)
My "best-feeling" statement out of the above would be this one:
That's been true for me many times so I can easily believe it.
Does that example give you some ideas about why you are having trouble with this method?

The general guidelines for focus wheels/blocks is like this : specifically negative (you usually start here)-->generally negative-->generally positive-->specifically positive.
The statement you started with seems like kind of a jump immediately to generally positive (and it has a "self beating" sound to it, because of the "Should" word) - the first statement's goal is to simple feel even a slightly bit better than the original thought. Also I have the feeling that you are more "thinking your way" logically rather than feeling your way.
Stingray's offer for the first statement is excellent - another good one would be "There is at least a slight chance that not all of the trains in the world are packed". Just go general and find a statement that offers any improvement, and that's all you need. From there, just focus on it and feel the relief. As you move up vibrationally, it will be easier to find more statements, and just focus on whether it feels right and gives you the feeling of relief.
Remember, the power really isn't in the statements, these are only words. The true power is in your vibration. So the key is to feel the statements, and then choose them and flow with it.
