What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?
If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), you feel you have no control over certain thoughts, idea or urges, which seem to force themselves into your mind, repeatedly. These thoughts – obsessions – are often frightening or distressing, or seem so unacceptable that you can’t share them with others.
Contained within the obsession is an underlying belief that you, or other people, may come to harm. However absurd or unrealistic this belief, you can’t dismiss it or reason it away. It creates unbearable anxiety, and makes you feel helpless to do anything except perform a particular ritual which can rid you of the devastating thought.
The irresistible urge to carry out such rituals is known as a ‘compulsion’. This could be something like repeatedly opening and closing a door, washing your hands, repeating certain words or phrases, or counting, in other words, exaggerated elements of everyday actions and routines.
You may feel compelled to do these actions over and over again, because of the fear that you didn’t do it properly last time, or because the unwanted thoughts may intrude again. The relief from the anxiety is only temporary.
Note: some people only experience obsessive thoughts, without having any compulsions; others have compulsions without knowing why they feel the need to act them out.
OCD isn’t a psychotic disorder, such as schizophrenia, whereby people feel that certain thoughts and ideas come from somewhere outside themselves (hallucinations). If you have OCD, you know that it’s your own thoughts tormenting you.
How to Cure OCD
There is a natural drug free way to overcome OCD and it stands to reason that as the problem is obsessive thoughts and obsessive behavior a change in thinking patterns will create a change in behavior. That can be accomplished using the correct techniques.
In a way OCD is no different to all addictions. The behavior is repetitive and compulsive and the sufferer feels unable to stop doing what they are doing. All habitual behaviors are held in the subconscious part of mind and this part of mind is the part that is contacted when using hypnotic techniques.
As long as you consciously agree to the change the subconscious is easily re-programmed and freedom can be yours. I have known someone get over a lifelong pattern of OCD behavior after one session of a combination of hypnosis and metaphysical techniques and while I cannot promise this to everyone it is possible.

My life is so much happier and calmer since I learned to turn fears around and walk them back out of my mind. I am more confident, more decisive, I have more energy, all types of relationship are better, I am more outgoing and I have done things that I would not previously even attempted. Because I am not using up a lot of time and energy getting anxious and tense, I am more open to what other people and the world in general has to offer.
Prepare to be amazed at how quickly you will see results.
