I'm currently reading a book that Bob Doyle referred to as the reason for his success so I thought I'd give it a read, it's called A HAPPY POCKET FULL OF MONEY. Anyway, the author is basically telling us to BE wealthy if we want to be wealthy. This can of course apply to anything, if you want to be healthy, in a happy relationship, in your dream job, etc. you should BE that you are that. Can anyone clarify this for me?
Correct me if I'm wrong but Abraham Hicks says that if there's something we have negative feelings about, we shouldn't even think about it and we should focus on good feeling thoughts.
These two sources say somewhat opposite things. Should we convince ourselves that we are what we want to be or should we ignore anything we have negative feelings about? For example, say you are very happy with your job but you're single, should you simply focus on your awesome job and all the good stuff in your life and not give your relationship status a second thought? Or should you imagine you are in the perfect relationship?
Do what feels easier and feels better. For your job and relationship question, focus on the relationship if it feels good. If it doesn’t sometimes, then focus on the job and that will allow the relationship.

The viewpoint of the Huna philosophy is maybe half way between Doyle and Hicks.
If we have negative feelings about something it means we have a belief that it is somehow bad and in order to have that thing the belief needs to be changed. Just focussing on having it can work eventually but often doesn't so just enough attention is needed to resolve the conflict between desire and resistance.
In Huna there are no "negative" feelings really because they are behaviours that give us clear feedback on what we are beliving about ourselves, the world and what we want.
At first glance, it loos opposite but they are actually in essence saying the same thing. You see, Abe is talking about focus and not focusing on negatives of what you don’t desire, and the other author is also saying to focus on BEING that which you seek to attract (i.e. to focus on what you desire as if you are already it and have it). Both are saying the same thing.
