From my experience of the Abraham Hicks material I have become fairly convinced that Abraham isn't really interested in assisting us getting what we want, or more precisely, what we THINK we want from our current perspective. What I think Abraham is about is getting us to come to know what we truly want, and we all really want the same thing cos WE ARE really all the same thing, the same being.
I think Abraham is bringing us to come to realise that no matter what, we can choose how we want to feel in any given moment. Most of us aren't going to be very interested in knowing this from our current set of beliefs and convictions and "desires" (we just want what we want now) and so Abraham dangles the carrot of attaining our desires in order to draw us in.
However after we have been applying the methods for a while and realising that we really can choose how we will feel, no matter what is going on "externally", we then become aware of other possibilities and what we initially thought we wanted from our perspective of being convinced that our feelings are determined by "external" goings on suddenly seems like small fry compared to what we then realise we can really achieve now that we are aware that we are master of our feelings in every circumstance (which is perhaps the ultimate goal but we achieve it to degrees as we go along).
This isn't to say that I am being critical of the Abraham Hicks material on these grounds. I totally reckon its on the complete right track specifically BECAUSE this is its real goal.
Having said all that though, I also am pretty convinced that one will still manifest (as a sort of incidental bonus) what they thought they wanted (the initial "desires") when they started out on the journey of following the methods suggested in the Abraham material and deciding to feel the way they want to feel, as long as those initial "desires" in no way compromise the newly discovered ability (of being the master of ones own emotions in any given moment) or any loftier aims that have arisen as distinct possibilities as a result of that ability.
