Pure o OCD is something that drives most people insane. I’m not talking about clinically insane, rather as an expression to describe how unpleasant it is to suffer from this condition. I would like to make it very clear that this is not a disease or anything like that. No matter what you have heard, I have been working with people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for years and I can tell you that I have seen people who suffered major with it not suffer anymore. I have seen people become OCD free and I have seen how this has dramatically changed their lives for the better!
When I talk about pure o OCD I am talking about the rituals that people do in their heads such as count things or think repetitive thoughts. It’s tough to deal with this when you really have no clue the inner workings of OCD. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is like a child and if you pay attention to it, it will just want more of your attention. On the other hand, if you ignore it, then it will flee from you. Just like the Bible says, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Although I have to say that getting rid of OCD is slightly harder than just “ignoring” it. You cannot just ignore it until you know how to change the underlying thought process.
If you continue using the same faulty equipment, you will continue to get the same faulty result. When it comes to pure o ocd I can assure you that if you keep using the same paradigm shift that you have, you will be in the same rut. Now what do I mean by paradigm shift? What I mean is that your current set of beliefs and interpretations of the information around you. You need to learn how to interpret things differently before you can ever expect a “natural” change to happen in your life. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Most OCD programs just tell you to depend on willpower but we both know that willpower is bull. That is why most diet programs also fail, because they lean on something that itself is weak.
No, instead what you want to do is lean on changing your understand of the world around you and your brain will automatically change the way it interprets things. Pure o ocd will not be able to stand a chance! For example: If you are throwing a ball a certain way and you can’t seem to control it, then you may interpret ball throwing as tough. If however, you learn some techniques on how to throw the ball more powerfully, all of a sudden you may find that what you once found hard is actually very easy! Now your paradigm or state of mind has shifted! Now you are ready to do the task! See, in your current state of mind, not giving into rituals is just too hard because you are doing it wrong and you don’t know how to do it the right way. You know that you need to learn this skill, but you also know that you need to learn how to do it the right way! I have some great information on OCD below that will help you a lot, enjoy!
