Let me applaud you because back in the day when I was smoking weed, if I would have ever seen a blog like this, I probably wouldn't have clicked on it. I remember that I did not like to see anything that had to do with quitting. I think deep down, maybe part of me knew that it would be beneficial to my energy if I did that, but at the same time, I didn't want to even see it because I didn't want to neglect or put down what I was doing. Let me also say that if you're at this place right now, then most likely there is a deep part of you or a deeper part of you that knows that if you did stop, maybe your life would take off and very powerful ways and now I'm not saying any of this to brag either, but these last a couple of years especially I believe that I am where I am because of my energy and if I were smoking, I don't think I would be where I'm at right now.

The kind of motivation, the energy that I've had because when I quit smoking, I had so much more energy, I had more energy to do different things, and since then, you know, I've been on YouTube for three years now. I had a nine to five job before that, but now I live in a really nice house, and I get to travel the world doing what I love, and I don't say it to brag, I just say that because I see some people that smoke that I know that I know if they would quit, they would just, their businesses would take off in a new way. I see people that I think their lives would completely go to the next level if they stopped smoking weed, and it's because I believe that our vibration, our energy is meant to be higher than the energy of that of weed.

Let me explain to you what I mean by that, and to do so what I'll do is I'll share with you this chart right here, you'll see this chart of consciousness. This chart of consciousness that you'll see right here, you'll see at the bottom, you'll see shame, fear, guilt. Then eventually, you'll see that of anger, neutrality, reasoning, love, joy, peace, and enlightenment. This chart comes from a book that is called power versus force. In that book, it talks about muscle testing and how we can use muscle testing, which is connected to our subconscious mind. Our body's connected to our subconscious mind to calibrate the vibration of certain activities, certain things we do. One of the things that were done is they calibrated that of alcohol, which calibrates at the level of a 275, and then they also calibrated that of weed, which Kat or marijuana, which calibrates at 350, so wow.

Weed is a higher vibration than alcohol. 350 on the scale of consciousness isn't necessarily as high as your natural vibration can be. Let me share with you a little bit as well. When I was growing up, if you don't know my story already, I'll just kind of give a little bit of a summary of it. But I grew up between seven and 15 years old. I had a lot of control over my life. I had an abusive ex stepmom in my life, and my brother and I went through that and after 15 years old came around, my dad divorced her, my brother and I had all this freedom again. It was amazing. We were able to have friends; we were able to do like normal kid things kids would do. Even after that, though, I still felt a lot of unworthiness.

I still felt a lot of pent up emotion of like why did that happen? Then what happened is I was smoking. I started smoking probably when I was, um, back in 2010 or 2011. 2012 was when I quit. It's been a while, but I've helped and seen so many people quit using what I share with you in this blog. Here's what happened. I was smoking all day every day for like two years. Then I learned that of meditation and meditation. By the way, I was somebody that was diagnosed as having ADHD, which means I was taking Adderall during the day, which is prescribed for having ADHD, which would help me focus because I worked a sales commission job working at Nordstrom's and woman's shoes. While I was there, I would take Adderall. I'd feel really, really great, and be able to like sell a lot and be able to stay focused.

Then when I'd get home at night, what would happen is I would have the side effects of Adderall, which are, you don't sleep very much, and you don't eat very much. Well, what are the side effects of weed? The side effects are, you do eat a lot, you do sleep a lot. I would go home during the day at work, I would do Adderall, I'd come home, and it would help me balance out to relax and to eat and to sleep. I was doing that for about two years. And then what I realized is I was like, you know, there's has to be a different way because there were such harsh side effects of doing Adderall. I came across that of uh, research online that talked about meditation, how meditation will help you to balance out the hormones in your body, release natural dopamine and not have the dropping side effects that Adderall had.

What I did is I started to meditate, and at first, I didn't get a great result. It was hard for me to do, but after I did this thing where I would stare at a candle flame, and what I realized is when my eyes were on one spot, it was so much easier for my eyes not to when your eyes wander, your mind wanders. If you keep your eyes on one spot, it's like the mind started to really slow down. What I did is, I would observe my thoughts, and when that happened, it changed everything. Within a couple of days of doing that, I felt totally different. I felt my energy increase; I felt better. Within a week or two, I quit smoking weed and completely got off of Adderall. First, I got off Adderall, and then I quit smoking weed like a week or two after that.

Since then, I felt amazing ever since. I believe that our natural vibration on the scale of consciousness is much higher than we think. I think that most of us can feel at the level of vibration of love, and all we have to do is, in a way, integrate the past and met it. Meditating helps us to do that, to observe it, so it doesn't have so much power over us. I'm going to share with you the step by step process that I use that makes all the difference with that. But I will say that in the last years since quitting my energy has had, I've had so much more energy to put into my passion to put in what I love doing. I feel like when it comes to our energy if we keep ourselves at 350, which it's kind of funny, if you look at that chart of consciousness, you'll see 350 is that of acceptance.

What happens when you smoke weed, you accept the moment. Sometimes for some people, it could actually raise their vibration of the filling. A lot of pain about the past: it can actually raise their vibration. But here's the thing, when it raises our vibration from the lower states, when we're not doing it, it brings us, it brings us right back down. If we instead learn something like meditation, we learn how to rise above it rather than needing something as a crutch to bring us up. When it comes to this process, it's about being aware of our energy, being aware of how we can, in a way, you know, I realized that I was doing a lot of it because I was numbing the past in a way. I was numbing a lot of the things that happened. But when I learned how to meditate, I learned how to observe it.

I learned how to let go of labels. I let go of the label of needing Adderall or having ADHD altogether. I realized it was a label that I was cleaning too. Then I like all of the labels of being what is called a stoner or somebody that smokes a lot. Once I let go of that label from my identity, and I observed it, that's when things really began to change. But let's go ahead, and I'm going to show you the step by step process that makes the smoking weed. Easy to quit, and I'm going to show you in there. Let's go now. The first step to this process is simply becoming aware that it is time to quit, to stop smoking. There's actually something very interesting that happened when I did this. I was at the time working at Nordstrom's and women's shoes, and I remembered that I had some friends, and I still have some friends that own the number one smoke shop here in Las Vegas. What I would do is every two weeks when I got paid, I would go there. Sometimes I'd get these new pieces like a glass bong or a pipe or something like that.

One time I remember that I went there, and I bought this new piece that was like a $300, a really nice piece of glass that was like a bong or something like, or, yeah, it was a form of bong, and I wanted a new piece. However, inside I knew that it was tied for me to quit, but for some reason, I still got it. I still thought it was excited about it, and I remember bringing it home, and I kind of felt guilty about getting it because I knew on the inside that for me, it was time. I could just feel it; I could just feel like it wasn't serving me. I started to become aware of things like, if I came across a blog like this, I'd be more willing to watch it versus weeks or months before that where I'm like, Nope, I don't even want to see it. I don't want anything that the Gates what I'm doing because I love my life, and there's nothing wrong with it. By the way, I'm not even saying there is anything wrong with weed.

I think weed has many healing modalities, healing benefits. But the thing is sometimes people use it, and they end up just using every single day kind of as a crutch, and it keeps their energy within that 350 level of consciousness, and they don't actually accomplish what they're meant to do in life. For me, I knew at the time that is time for me to quit. However, I went and bought that piece. I brought it home, and I remember what I did is I loaded it up, I took a hit out of it, and it was the first hit I ever took out of it. I braved it in, and as I breathed it out, I just started crying. I know this sounds a little bit, you know, a little emotional or like why would you be crying? But I just knew that that was the last hit I was ever going to take. In a way, I felt like I was kind of breaking up with weed in away. I felt like it was a choice. I was like a new; it just wasn't going to work out anymore in a way.

But I remember I was crying, and I had this emotional release, and I think it was because I also was thinking about how weed affected me and everyone else in my life at that time. Once again, I think we can be a very powerful healing thing. But on the other side of it, I realized that sometimes I was high when I would go like to my dad's house and I would see my sisters. I remember there was this one picture, and then this picture, it was like my dad, my sisters, and my eyes were just completely glazed. Nothing wrong with it, but I knew, you know, this is all self-judgment, but I knew and remembered that like I kind of always felt a little bit guilty while I was there and I felt like I wasn't completely there with my family, my dad, my sisters, even though I never brought it into the house or anything. When I would do it and then go over, I could feel that my energy wasn't completely there. I remember there was an ex-girlfriend I had that that was actually one of the reasons we broke up was a, she drank, and I smoked, and she didn't like the fact that I smoke and I thought it was weird because drinking, I couldn't figure out the difference in a way.

However, I could feel the pain almost of that relationship. It's almost like sometimes when we smoke a lot, it kind of numbs a lot of emotion because what happens is it's a level of certainty that when you smoke, you will then bring yourself right up to acceptance at three 50 but then there was this rush of energy of releasing all of this stuff. I know that no longer serve me. What happened is then I let that go, and I felt so incredibly light. I let all that go. I cried for like five minutes or less, and then I just felt free. I knew from that point going on that I wasn't going to smoke again. But part of it, and part of the thing that I recommend for this is it's becoming aware that it's time to quit.

It's becoming aware of the pain at the same time that it would bring to keep on doing it. The pain would be the same reality you're currently in except in everything the way it is without pushing beyond it. The pain would be the different aspects of your life where you can see that it's not actually helping you. When you start to become aware that it's time, then you start to become aware of the pain. That's when you can then really move forward. The second thing that's important for this is understanding that it's about making a choice to never again do it, making a choice, or make a choice to quit or to cut back or whatever it is. However, what I recommend with this is looking and making the choice of being aware of it within your story. For example, for me, we all have a story that we tell ourselves about who we are and what happens at any point at a time.

We can change our story. The thing is many times, that story will remain on autopilot, and we'll tell ourselves a story that it's hard to quit. This is just the way it is, that it's much easier to do this, that it helps bring the edge off and helps us relax that story. We'll keep the narrative going on autopilot, and that's why it's about becoming aware of that story, and then it really is about making the choice, and when we're looking at how to easily stop smoking weed, it really could be just as easy as you make a choice and you never do it again. I know that sounds too simplistic, but that really is the key to quitting. It's you do. You just decide I'm never going to do it again. That's it. The process and the steps I'm going to share with you as well that are coming up make it way easier, but really it is a choice that we make, and if we don't make that choice, then it's like in the background.

It's something that we might eventually do, but the key is to make that choice. The third part is the game-changer. The third part is becoming aware of how it is connected to your identity. If you see yourself as a smoker, then it will be very hard to quit smoking. It's like if somebody wants to lose weight and what they do is they see themselves as somebody that's overweight, and they're trying to lose weight, it's going to be hard because the way they see themselves, their self-image, their identity is set to a certain point to where they see themselves as that. Even if they tried to do a little diet, it'd bring them right back to that base point of the way they see themselves. For example, our self-image is like a thermostat. There's a thermostat on that wall right over here if you can see it, and if it's set to 75 degrees, and for some reason, I opened up the doors, it's cold right now, so it would bring in more cold and then if the temperature would go down to 68 the AC would then keep turn on the heater actually, and it would bring it back up to 75 because that is what is called a site.

It's called a psycho, a cybernetic mechanism. There's a book called Psycho-Cybernetics. That's why I was getting the word cybernetic mechanism and cybernetic Mexico a mechanism keeps it regulated there. If you see yourself as a smoker and then what happens is you stopped smoking, but you still see yourself at 75 degrees as a smoker, then it will be something that's very hard to do because your base point will bring you right back there subconsciously. The key to this is seeing yourself as no longer a smoker, which means that when you look at yourself, and you think of yourself, you think of yourself, I don't smoke. That's not who I am and think of it part of the bad. The hard part about this, too, is the second part of the story we tell ourselves. Sometimes we tell ourselves a story. It's hard. We tell ourselves a story that we did this for ten years, and that's what keeps it hard to change.

The key to this is becoming aware of the story, becoming aware of the identity we have around it, and then choosing to let it go. Realize every moment is a new moment. Every moment is a new moment. Every moment is a new moment. If we keep knowing that we're always changing, it makes it easier to let go of this part of us that's key. Sees us as a stoner or as somebody that smokes weed. This is about the awareness of letting go of it from that part of your identity. And that is the game-changer. That makes everything easier. First off, know that this process can be easy. When you look at the choice in the story, tell yourself a story that quitting is easy. That's what I did, and it made it very easy. But first off, I had to become aware that it is time to quit.

I had to look at the pain; I had to look at the things and also look at the pleasure. If I stopped smoking and stopping smoking for me has led me to where now I lived a life of my dreams, to be honest. Because now I have the energy to be put in a certain direction. I'll tell you, every single person reading this blog, your natural base point is higher than 350. I promise you meditation will help with this as well. Observing your thoughts, learning to observe rather than react. That can be extraordinarily powerful. I have meditation, and I have videos that show exactly my process for meditation and how I stopped taking Adderall or having ADHD, the exact meditation process that I'll link in the top description box below as well for you and put as a card right here as well.

It's time to stop smoking. Become aware of the pain that it was bringing you and become aware of the pleasure of what it would mean if you did stop smoking. Secondly, just simply make a choice from this point going forward, I am no longer going to do it. Tell yourself a story that is easy and then third, becomes aware of your identity, and then let go of believing that you are even a smoker. As you do that, it makes it so much easier. Part of this may mean that because of that, I'll share with you some tips that make this easier as well, is that you stop hanging around people that are smoking weed for a while or just in general, and you realize that this is a value that I no longer have. When I do it, it brings you to that certain state.

If you're in your environment, you have all these triggers, and these things that make you want it, you have to be aware of that. I remember after I quit smoking, a year or two later, I moved in with a roommate that I didn't realize was going to be smoking so much weed. What happened is every morning I would wake up, I'd smell it, and it would kind of, it didn't necessarily tempt me. But, it almost kind of made me because I was so far beyond that would make me irritated, though, because in a way, it had that reference experience to my past in away. If you remove yourself from those triggers, if you remove yourself from being around other people that are doing it, it's going to make it so much easier for you. So become aware of the people you're around.

Make a choice to quit. That really makes it so much easier. But this one that I'm going to share as well makes the process even easier than that, and that is having something to do in place of the smoking weed for when you get the cravings. What I recommend is wiring in the new something new to do when you do something new. This could be something like, it could be for me; it was meditation. I learned how to observe my thoughts and if I felt a deep craving to do it, I would go, and I would just meditate. I would meditate, observe my thoughts. You become too, anything you do that you get a certain sense of certainty from. Like for example, you smoke weed, and you're certain you're going to feel relaxed in a certain way.

I am anchoring you into feeling relaxed. What I realized is that I could apply that towards other things, so I applied that towards meditation. I would start meditating. It really deepened my life in powerful ways. It's just meditating and observing my thoughts. That really is all it was. But wiring in something new and making a choice to go for your passion is also something I would recommend. Go for your passion. When you're talking about the scale of consciousness right here, you'll see that of reasoning and love. When you're doing what you're passionate about, you're at like 450 or above. That's where you're at. You're actually at love and above.

When you start to do that, do what you are passionate about. Make it a commitment that I'm going to stop smoking weed, and I'm going to put all of my energy because you will have more energy. You will have more energy to put in what you're passionate about. You'll have more energy when you're around other people. You'll have different energy dynamic about yourself. You'll carry yourself in a different way. Make it a choice that you're going to go for your passion. That's exactly what I did. I quit, and it took maybe a year or two, but then I was developing the courage to get on YouTube that energy in this direction, and now I lived the life of my dreams three years now it's been, I've been traveling the world making YouTube videos. I live in a dream house now, and I get to live the lifestyle I want, and you can make a choice right now that you are going to become aware that it's time to quit smoking weed.

You're going to see how it's been keeping you in the same reality over and over again, and it's been keeping things on autopilot. Secondly, make a choice. Know that it can be easy. Change the story. Believe in it has to be hard. Thirdly, drop it from your identity. See yourself as somebody where it's easy to quit. See yourself as somebody that does not smoke weed and drop the story that she did. Smoke weeds in the past. You're new every moment. You're new, every moment you're new, every moment. Then that makes it easier. Let this be the part of your story where now you just go for what you are passionate about. You go for what you're passionate about, and now you have the energy to actually do that. When you make a choice to put your energy in that direction, you'll find that you have so much more potency.

Even when we're talking about the law of attraction, when we're talking about the focus, you have more focus on your goals and of accomplishing things you want. There's a very powerful meditation for changing your self-image, which is what will change and make this process easier than ever. Listen to that meditation for 21 days. I think it will change your life. You'll see as an end card right here; it's the self-image transformation, meditation. Watch it and watch after 21 days how you just see yourself as completely new.
