Let go or not to let go

I have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive) (I know some think that you should unlearn the concept of a label but I don't, besides, thats another story) anyway when my mind presents images of people I have trouble with, recently I just let the images happen b/c those images are fear and I don't want to give into fear and other times I do some of my previous techniques like think of something else I don't have a problem, but both ways make me feel uncomfortable and make me go 4 the advil, I'm thinking with practice that if I let the images go thru it will go away, but if it makes me feel bad now then.....??? What advice would you give to me

Somewhere in one of his books Wayne Dyer suggests that when you have a negative thought, in this case your images, gently acknowledge it and then gently turn it away. I just say to the thought, "Oh Hello. Thanks but I won't be needing you." and that works really well for me. I've heard other folks say to yell at the thought, "Get out!" or think the word CANCEL or picture a red stop sign. None of that works for me, because the energy around those techniques is too explosive for me and though I cancel out the thought I am left feeling jittery, but for someone else that may work.

Good luck! ) Celia

Same here Celia! I don't yell at my negative thoughts. I just say "Hey great to see you again, but no thanks!" D D
