Why are obsessive thoughts compulsive and why are they against our will?
They are appearing because you are persistently trying to eliminate or remove them. This is not possible and that is why an internal struggle is continuing in us, which is quite exhausting.
Obsessive (compulsive) thoughts persist: because you do not have a distance in relation to them – you understand them literally, healthy for almost as absolute truths, and not as anxiety symptom of what you are constantly dealing with them – you constantly analyze them, you are deepening in them, trying to controlling, challenging, or trying to actively avoid them as you struggle with fear (suppress fear) – you do not allow yourself to feel the fear or some other feeling that you are suppressing.
How to get rid of obsessive thoughts?
One way to do this is to distance yourself from them, stop dealing with them and stop suppressing fear. The hardest step is the first, making the distance.
Do not count on obsessive thoughts disappearing for day two because they will not. It will not disappear as soon as you have invested a lot of energy and time to oppose them. Now you need to learn and apply something contrary to it. It takes time and practice in practice. Be persistent, apply techniques and you will succeed.
Simple techniques to control obsessive thoughts
We present one simple technique with which you will be able to really control obsessive thoughts.
When the obsessive thought comes in using your imagination, imagine that this thought has some form, color, weight, let it occupy some space in front of you. It does not matter what you will think it is only important that you “materialize” the thought in your imagination and imagine that it stands in front of you.
As you look at this thought and let yourself feel the emotions that accompany that thought. Most often it is fear. Feel that fear and do not resist him at all. Do not analyze it and try to understand it. Just feel it the strongest you can in the present moment.
Continue to “look” into this thought and now imagine directing attention to the space behind that thought. Now, think again of the thought from the beginning and let yourself feel whatever you feel. If fear is gone, the process ends. If it does not go away, although you still feel the charge that appears with that thought, apply all the steps again, until the charge is completely emptied.
