< Embodiment 8 > I'm going to tell you something, for instance. Everything about your reality now is a hypnotic state. You believe it. You fall into it. And, then you wonder how to get out. We will give you an example. This is one that is near and dear to Cauldre. Nicotine in cigarettes - it is not addictive. It is not addictive! You smokers don't believe me, do you? You non-smokers don't want to believe me. It is not addictive. Nicotine by itself has an incredible hypnotic effect. Anything that it is applied to, it tends to exaggerate. So, if somebody says nicotine in cigarettes is dangerous, it intensifies that, and it makes them dangerous. Nicotine is one of the most responsive substances on Earth. It fulfills your belief systems. It is wonderful.
< Embodiment 8 > Now, there are many who believe that they have been told that nicotine is addictive. So, it becomes highly addictive. Unto itself, it is not. It is not. It is strictly a belief intensifier. That's all it is. But, the hypnotic effect that is sent out leads you to believe it is bad, that it is addictive, that you have to struggle with it. There are those of you that quit smoking that are still struggling and still dreaming about it because you are hypnotized.
< Clarity 6QA > But what is happened because of the overlays - actually, the conflicting overlays and hypnosis that are taking place, it leaves the smokers who are trying to quit in a dilemma. Plus you add the fact that nicotine, in itself, is perhaps one of the most influential ingredients on Earth. Nicotine can lead you to believe anything - can reinforce belief systems very easily. It can be used to reinforce a belief system that smoking is bad or addictive. So when this is fed to you through media or through other people, even through quote/unquote "scientific studies" that smoking is addictive and it's bad, the nicotine responds to that, because it is a belief system that you at least, in part, hold for yourself. So now, you're deep in the trap of this whole thing of smoking.
