    As someone who has struggled for the majority of my life with OCD, I've always wondered where some of my obsessive thought patterns/behaviors stem from. I've also just felt very "stuck" in my life. Like I am not progressing, growing, or moving forward. I feel as if my life hasn't changed at all in the last 10 years, despite my efforts to make changes.

    I was doing some research last night on past lives after seeing a thread on here, and apparently a lot of people believe OCD (along with other anxiety disorders) stem from issues in a past life. I'm on the fence about whether I believe that or not, but I am definitely an open-minded person and I do believe there is more to life than what is here in the physical world. I'm just not sure exactly what.

    I am just really frustrated and feel defeated. I'm considering doing a past life regression, but I want to find someone reputable in my area.

    Has anyone done this before? Do you feel as if it helped you with anything, or was it a waste of time and money? These things don't seem cheap, so I want to make sure it's worth it.

    That would be really fascinating to try out. I've read a lot of books that Edgar Cayce wrote and he pretty much invented past life regression or what he called life readings. Best thing to do would be to do a lot of research on reputable hypnotists.

    Cayce basically said the situations or struggles you face in life will repeat until you learn from them, kind of a karmic lesson that will allow for spiritual growth.

    Dolores Cannon; recently deceased, and Dr. Michael Newton are probably the most knowledgeable and experienced practitioners of the last several decades. On their websites below are links to accredited therapists.

    Before pursuing that route you might browse or read some of their books for answers. I gained insight on some personal issues by doing that and for me that was enough for the time being. You might check out the table of contents or indexes on Amazon "look inside"; especially for Newton who seems more interested in resolving issues.

    Before you go to past lives I think there are other factors that could influence this:

    It could be an imbalance in your chakras.
    It could be ancestral imprints in your DNA.
    It could be an outside psychic of spiritual influence or an impression that's been left in your consciousness.
    There are probably many factors that could influence your OCD

    The work there is to do is to clear out everything that is not the real you. Whether that is in this life or past lives.

    I think it's better to start in this life and then move backwards as this life influence is likely to be the more immediate.
    Also some believe past lives are just parallel lives so doing the work for now can cure all lives.

    I'd recommend a spiritual healer, a life coach, a theta healer or a therapist who understands spiritual principles to help you understand what is going on energetically. If a past life is a part of it they will clear it out as part of their work

    On a more practical level practices such as meditation or the 3 principles are very good at understanding the nature of thought and reality.

    Here are some resources:

    Dr Joe Dispenza - on understanding the wiring of the brain and how to rewire it

    John Newton - ancestral clearing on clearing out DNA influences from our genetic lineage

    I get you've gone through difficulties but when you get through to see the light at the end of the tunnel it will make sense.

    People who have illnesses mental and physical believe we have the short straw but i think actually these are keys to understanding reality.

    If you didn't have this you wouldn't be seeking greater understanding. You could be stuck in a boring job at 50 wondering where your life went. Instead you have to go though trials and tribulations in order to emerge on the other side.

    OP you're right on the money! Of course there's more than what is experienced here in the "physical", "natural" world. The majority of the infiniteness of existence lies beyond, all around and within every living being, "human", "plant", "animal" and "supernatural" (which is actually natural). I did my past life regression, albeit very poorly, but it was very informative and made great sense. Next time will go to someone who has the gift of greater experience, to delve deeper. Read some of the true accounts on Near Death We see these experiences all the time in medicine. I saw a lot of weird and wonderful things during my palliative care rotations, and pediatric oncology (kids' experiences are the rawest, untainted by religious doctrine and life experience). They are very refreshing, reassuring and give a bit of a clue. Mostly, enjoy life and be you, whoever you are meant to be! icon_cool.gif

    I guess I'm just not sure where to start. My OCD mostly stems from unwanted/intrusive thoughts about doing things that I know are not me. They say OCD attacks the things that mean the most to you. I know that I love my family, friends, and children, so most of my horrible thoughts from my OCD consist of hurting a family member, friend, or child physically and/or sexually.

    Psychotherapy, medication, and even cognitive behavioral therapy have not been much of a help to me thus far. So I'm not sure what my next step should be. icon_sad.gif

    Sometimes those thoughts are not really our thoughts.

    When i was younger one summer I had thoughts to jump in front of the subway (tube in London) they terrified me for awhile for a week. Those thoughts were not mine. I knew that the voice was different.

    I was paranoid about them. At the time I heard something about Buddhism and meditation and I just experimented with letting the thoughts go.
    When I stopped resisting the thoughts they became weaker and over a week they just disappeared.

    We can pick up thoughts from other people and other non physical energies.

    I regularly have very random emotions and I realize that often they are not my emotions. I use a kinesiology test to check whether they are my emotions or other peoples energies that I've picked up.

    Your OCD could be energetic attachments which are influencing your thoughts. If you've had them since you were young then it will take some effort to get rid of them but it is possible.

    Another thing is we all have sub personalities but for some they are stronger and less integrated so this could be a sub personality that you need to make peace with.

    I think some sort of meditation will be beneficial as it will work for both but a good healer can help you.
