I had another "Aha" moment when I understood that emotions are "general". When you feel happy in response to something your child did, or you feel happy because you just lost 10 lbs, the feeling of happy is the same. Happy does not change based on the outcome you are witnessing. Happy is happy. If you can feel the feeling then you are calling positive elements of completion to fill in the holes of your grid. That is why, it is not important to start with being specific. That is why Abraham says “go general, go general, go general”. Once you have learnt how to get into the positive feeling place with ease, then you can start focusing on the specifics – this will result in the grid filling in faster and a feeling of greater satisfaction.
