Ok, I have ocd or obsessive compulsive disorder, I'm in college and when I'm in a particular class where I have some ocd problems, I feel as though people are watching me, I hear a laugh I think its directed toward me etc etc. I have a problem with some of the people in class, that cause me problems. Anyway i remember don't find a place to be offended, I try to keep that in my mind if I hear a laugh or something, but still I feel embarrised or humiliated, any suggestions someone could direct my way where maybe the feelings of embarrisment or low vibration energy could be transformed to a higher vibration energy, besides the don't find a place to be offended line? thank you

Labels suck, don't they?

Have you thought about the possibility of creating new labels for yourself that serve you or are positive?

I think there is a little OCD in all of us... or at least I know I obsess over things from time to time. This discussion board was an obsession for me for a while. Many of the business projects I am involved with are obsessions. Sometimes I obsess over my health or building wealth or doing too many things with my son (if that is even possible)... 8)

Bottom line I wonder if you could benefit from transforming your identity from OCD to being a person who does not obsess?

Lastly, ignore others who label you with labels that do not support your vision for your life.

Labels to concentrate on possitive aspects of myself rather than focusing on the label OCD? Is that what you mean? Yes I could see that but eventually the label OCD etched into my sense of being will rear its head, but by thinking that I guess that is resistance... ahhh! LOL

Bottom line I wonder if you could benefit from transforming your identity from OCD to being a person who does not obsess?

I can see that happening when gene therapy is available for me... not to far off, the national institute of mental health run by the U.S. government as well as other organizations have identified the gene mutation in the human genone that causes the chemical imbalences within the body contributing to OCD... YAH!

To tranform in the way proposed above, I would have to un-learn what I know about OCD right?...Anyone have a laser to remove the memory centers holding the knowledge of OCD within me? LOL

guingoff - Did you ever think that all the resistance you get, is caused by you? You bring this to you? And another thought for you to ponder is this - nothing is etched anywhere in you that cannot be erased by the maker - mainly you. I get from your posts that you want another label - why have any label - why not focus on the truth of you? You have read Dyer, I am assuming here. Every one of his books mentions the truth of who you are. And read Carolyn Myss who calls what you do as "woundology" - telling everyone and anyone who you are and what your label is.

Gene therapy will only prove as sucessful as you believe it to be. You can unlearn all that you have held onto about your label. And only you can do this - so what is your biggest fear in letting go? You won't be seen as speical anymore? There will never be a laser that can do what you want it to do, but there is your own mind that is capable of doing that for you.

Namaste - Ron

Hi quingoff. I've struggled with self-consciousness issues all my life, so I know how it feels when I think people are laughing at me or disapproving of me in some way. Two helpful Wayne Dyer quotes come to mind that have helped me

"What other people think of me is none of my business."

And,

"I am in charge of my emotions. They're not in charge of me."

And, I just found this one that really speaks to me

"The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do."

I hope these help. Hang in there.
