It's a good way to go. Think about science. We hear about a scientific breakthrough--for example, we hear about a stem-cell cure for heart disease. We hear that these miraculous, stem-cells can be cultured from the fat cells
stored in our body. We don't bother with the "hows" of the amazing science, unless we're in a geeky mood and want to read the article about it. Yet, we have so much FAITH in the truth of science because we have given it so much credit for trustworthiness over the years. Our faith in science has built up to become a granite mountain.
That's often the light in which we hold our own beliefs. We have lived with ourselves for so long, we implicitly believe that we are RIGHT in our opinions, including predictions of future outcomes. Even for uncertain outcomes, we are certain that they are uncertain (going against the LoA, which says our desires are instantly created, but may take time to manifest in our particular corner of reality). So, in order to undermine this false "certainty," which only blocks the manifestation, we must confess that we are too "sure" for our own good. That is where doing the mind-flip does a great job. Clearly focusing on our historical fallibility can soften up even the hardened "logical" thinker.
We can flip it around and think: "I am wrong to believe that, unless I know how
things will happen, they cannot." Turning the tables here, can help us get the heck out of the way and let the Universe do its job of taking care of the "hows."
