There are many ways to approach changing the habitual point of view you have on a subject, thereby raising your set point on that subject.
The tools I use have come from the amazing work of Abraham-Hicks.
The tool I have used most often is called the Focus Wheel.
If you refer to the Vibrational Scale, you can see there are many levels of vibrational frequency between fear and appreciation. It is not possible to jump more than 2 or 3 levels per thought, especially at the beginning of your practice. So the goal is to move yourself up incrementally, and as far as you can.
The Focus Wheel is most effective if you, on the subject you want to work on, chronically feel in the range of the middle of the scale, from worry to frustration, or higher. If you are more near Fear or Guilt or Depression on the subject, there is another process that is easier, called Moving Up the Emotional (or Vibrational) Scale. (see blog post called Tools)
The key to the Focus Wheel is to move incrementally.
To do the Focus Wheel, first, write a sentence or two, using emotional words, how you feel now. ie: I feel worried that...
Then, on the bottom of the page, write how you want to feel. ie: I have complete faith (knowledge) that all is well...
Then go back to the first sentence and make sure you read it and stir up the uncomfortable feeling a little bit, because when you make a statement that feels better, you will viscerally feel a sense of relief.
Reach for something you do believe now that gives you a sense of relief. Sometimes it's a very general statement like, "I don't have to figure this out right now."
Then something else that you believe that feels better still, like, "I know I'll find the answer to this."
It helped me in the beginning to keep the Vibrational Scale in front of me so I could look at the name of the higher emotions to see if I could make a statement about the subject that matches that higher emotion.
I have offered a service to my family and friends which helps get the ball rolling in learning how to effectively use these tools. I expect that through this blog I will be able to coach others, either over the phone or in person. It usually takes only one or two conversations to really get the hang of identifying where you are on the emotional scale, and how to move up. My cell is 520-349-2220

Taking The Bounce
When you have had some practice with the Focus Wheel and you feel proficient, this is the shortcut.
When you notice the negative feeling you have, find the exact opposite feeling.
The reason for the effectiveness of this exercise, is that when you "ask" you create the equal and opposite result vibrationally. The intensity of the negative feeling is matched by the intensity of the solution. When you focus on the solution, you are a match to it.
If you feel embarrassed, think about how the opposite (proud) feels. If you simply focus on the word "proud" for 68 seconds, your mind will be filled with examples of times you felt proud.
If you feel worried, focus on the opposite; secure. Say the word Secure in your mind; repeat it, think about it, say it again. Focus on it.
Think about it. Feel it.
Then your mind will be filled with examples of times you have felt secure. That few seconds of focusing on the feeling of security will shift your set-point about security.
