Where Abraham is I'm sure it can look like you're creating with your thoughts, positive emotions, and have a lot of success too. If you look around these forums, the teachings don't have a high success rate as far as manifestation goes. That's because we're in the physical dimension, and the denial we use in our creative process shows up immediately.
So if shopping for channeled info, especially on reality creation, get it from someone who's done time in the physical.
One odd point about Abraham (for me anyway) is that Abraham hardly ever draws distinctions between things like:
(a) conscious, subconscious, unconscious
(b) beta, alpha, theta states of mind
For them, it's as if we humans almost always have just one kind of mind. The Abraham teachings have very little emphasis on things like going to alpha, and then creating with your thoughts. In the Abraham framework, people are supposed to create, mostly with their thoughts in normal consciousness.
Maybe it works like that, where they come from. In our physical reality (I'm speaking based on just my own experience, of course), however, it does make a heck of a lot of difference in the success rate, whether you think about your intention while in deep alpha, or just in everyday ordinary consciousness.
I don't mean to say that thoughts in everyday ordinary consciousness don't create (they do), but from an IM perspective, they definitely have less creative power.
