Letting go of perceived bad habits is the result of making better decisions. By understanding ‘how and why’ we act in the ways that we do is deciding to get bigger than our fear. In deciding to overcome the habit of protecting ourselves with fear empowers us to be free of perceived bad habits. How much longer are you willing to remain overweight? How much longer are you going to tolerate that smoking or swearing habit? Notice no one can make these decisions for you. If you are choosing to assign your happiness to others, to things, you are choosing to let others/things decide what you can have. How much longer are you willing to let your life run on automatic? How many more years are you going to watch come and go and still find yourself stuck in unhappiness?

** Now is the time to positively DECIDE that you would like to be FREE of your bad habits.

In order to be free of a perceived bad habit, we have to consciously choose to corner our fear and resistance in relation to the habit. We have to be willing to dig up the AGFLAP, uncover the aversions, and be willing to take responsibility for everything related to these habits. Lester Levenson has said, “That the things we put in our mouth are far less offensive than the thoughts we hold in mind in relation to things (i.e. food, cigarettes, alcohol, etc.).

** By moving into higher energy and learning to hold in mind what we wish to have or experience (positive only) allows us to begin to let go of negative habits easily and effortless.

Whatever the perceived negative habit is, hold in mind what you wish to have or achieve that feels good and right for you. Avoid unrealistic goals such as: losing excessive weight in a week, or giving up cigarettes in one or two days if you have indulged in this habit for many years. Realistically these types of habits were sustained over a period of time, so you may choose to break the goal into smaller increments. You may decide to have a target goal of weighing 5-pounds less on or before a specific date or perhaps decide to cut back on smoking. Once the mini-goal is achieved, do continue working on the next level of the goal by continuing to let go of excuses and limitations. A good way to begin eliminiating the smoking or overeating habit (if that is something you would like to achieve), is to simply observe if you are in enjoyment of yourself while smoking or overeating.

** Whatever your goal, habit, or fear may appear to be, please hold in mind that you can easily eliminate any perceived bad habit simply by focusing on the positive benefits of being free of the unwanted habit or situation.

Habits are only a perception. Habits are there as a reminder to us indicating there is a pocket of negativity that requires our attention. Each time we focus on being more positive, we become happier and lighter. So choosing to let go of any unwanted or perceived bad habit requires that we intentionally make the decision to be done holding onto limiting habits and beliefs that sustain our acting as we have done for quite some time. It is also deciding to let go of feeling stuck, burdened or annoyed.

Regardless if you have been dealing with an unwanted habit or perception for a week, a year, or a decade or more, take a moment and look at what do you really want to leave behind. Negative habits affect our health and our ability to be calm and peaceful. Negative habits also affect our relationship with our self and with others. Look at what isn’t working in your life. See if there are financial or health opportunities that could be obtained by letting go of unwanted aggravation or unwanted habits. Be willing to look at your attachments and aversions and do make better decisions related to these matters. Believe by positively changing your viewpoint about a habit or situation will help you move forward and gain clarity on how to proceed.

Lester Levenson and Larry Crane teach us that “Freedom” includes no attachment and no aversion. We are all FREE to DECIDE to have or not have any experience or object of materiality that we wish to have… We are all equally FREE to do or not do anything that we wish… and we are also FREE to let go of aspects of our lives that aren’t making us happy. Remember there are no limitations other than what we are holding in mind. When we let go of limitations, we gain mastery over the perceived negative habit(s). Believe you can achieve your goals. Be willing to be successful, feel safe, experience positive relationships and resolutions to areas of your life that may need fine-tuning. Most importantly enjoy having an even happier life! Host a victory for FREEDOM!
