There were times I chain smoked — standing with my cig under the range vent. Every time I tried to quit I failed, and it was because I still wanted to smoke. The trick I found, which was actually a happy accident I discovered as a way to leave cigarettes behind forever, was to prefer fresh air to smoke. I did that by going for walks and talking to myself about how much I loved fresh air. Without realizing it, I was using the Law of Attraction in a positive way. I became increasingly aware of breathing every day. Sure, there were times in the beginning when I feared failing. I didn’t want the despair of regarding myself as hopelessly addicted. But I found out later that my accidental technique was the Principle of Polarity in action.
In the duality of the situation…there was smoke at one pole and fresh air at the other. The more I thought about breathing beautiful fresh air, the further I climbed the degrees to the positive pole of health. I depolarized my unhealthy habit, and repolarized without white knuckling it because I didn’t think about quitting…I thought about fresh air. I was using universal law to my benefit.
The beauty of the situation is not only am I smoke free, but I am empowered to live a better life through the conscious use of natural law and my imagination. It’s the best thing we have going for us to stop the clanging symbols of repetition. The best thing I can do with the experience is to share it.
