How to Break or Build a Habit
You are a creature of habit. Habit is the function of your subconscious mind. You learned to swim, ride
a bicycle, dance, and drive a car by consciously doing these things over and over again until they established tracks in your subconscious
mind. Then, the automatic habit action of your subconscious mind took over. This is sometimes called second nature which is a reaction
of your subconscious mind to your thinking and acting. You are free to choose a good habit or a bad habit. If you repeat a negative
thought or act over a period of time, you will be under the compulsion of a habit. The law of your subconscious is compulsion.
Magic Steps to Overcoming Alcohol or other Addictions
The First Step
Get still; quiet the wheels of the mind. Enter into a sleepy,
drowsy state. In this relaxed, peaceful, receptive state, you are preparing for the second step.
The Second Step
Take a brief phrase
which can readily be graven on the memory, and repeat it over and over as a lullaby. Use the phrase, "Sobriety and peace of mind are
mine now, and I give thanks." To prevent the mind from wandering, repeat it aloud or sketch its pronunciation with the lips and tongue
as you say it mentally. This helps its entry into the subconscious mind. Do this for five minutes or more. You will find a deep emotional
The Third Step
Just before going to sleep, practice what Johann von Goethe, German author, used to do. Imagine a friend,
a loved one in front of you. Your eyes are closed, you are relaxed and at peace. The loved one or friend is subjectively present,
and is saying to you, "Congratulations!" You see the smile; you hear the voice. You mentally touch the hand; it is all real and vivid.
The word congratulations implies complete freedom. Hear it over and over again until you get the subconscious reaction which satisfies.
-- The solution lies within the problem. The answer is in every question. Infinite intelligence responds to you as you
call upon it with faith and confidence.
-- Habit is the function of your subconscious mind. There is no greater evidence of the marvellous
power of your subconscious than the force and sway habit holds in your life. You are a creature of habit.
-- You form habit patterns
in your subconscious mind by repeating a thought and act over and over again until it establishes tracks in the subconscious mind
and becomes automatic, such as swimming, dancing, typing, walking, driving your car, etc.
-- You have freedom to choose. You can choose
a good habit or a bad habit. Prayer is a good habit.
-- Whatever mental picture, backed by faith, you behold in your conscious mind,
your subconscious mind will bring to pass.
-- The only obstacle to your success and achievement is your own thought or mental image.
-- When your attention wanders, bring it back to the contemplation of your good or goal. Make a habit of this. This is called disciplining
-- Your conscious mind is the camera, and your subconscious mind is the sensitive plate on which you register or impress
