Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Guest post by I. Alan Appt

OCD is an anxiety disorder depicted by intrusive thoughts that may cause fear, apprehension, or worry, by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety, or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. Symptoms of the disorder include excessive washing or cleaning; repeated checking; extreme hoarding preoccupation may include sexual violent or religious thoughts; aversion to particular numbers; and nervous rituals, such as opening and closing a door a certain number of times before entering or leaving a room.

There are aspects of acquired patterns of behavior that are considered habit and not OCD, looking both ways before crossing the street, he has the habit of being optimistic about things, shaking hands, addiction especially to drugs, Etc.

When OCD becomes clinically significant, symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder accompanied by substantial distress and dysfunction may prevail. At this stage consideration regarding medication and therpy should have been considered. Detection of more severe OCD for yourself may be difficult to identify and diagnose. Being objective of oneself may present a degree of ambivalence in the recognition of moderate or severe cases, which should be addressed by a professional.

Obsessive-compulsive Disorder is intriguing; we sometimes do certain acts in a response to not wanting something negative to happen. It is usually something specific we are trying to avoid when we implement the obsessive-compulsive act.

We have this obsession to do whatever it is that we do, to feel we will disable the ability of unwanted act from occurring. For instance many baseball players  especially a pitcher may usually touch the beak of his hat with almost every pitch, or holding the baseball in one hand push that hand into the glove of the another hand once or twice, or touch a particular part of his body, virtually before every pitch. There thought being, if they do not they will not obtain there desire.

OCD that occurs in an individual may in some instances be positive. Being positive, in that the anxiety or the fear of a given act actually occurring may be thwarted from happening do to the energy created by the individual. The absolute positive energy of the knowing, that when performing the OCD act, that which would have occurred will not occur. Then feeling unequivocally that the act you wish not to occur will in fact not occur, and supersedes the negative act from occurring, by ones unlimited and supreme positive energy.  The act may also be considered superstitious to a degree. In addition to OCD with the belief system of the individual being strong enough that they believe if the act is not performed the negative issue shall occur. In enabling, the OCD act to continue repeatably, in actuality may inhibit the negative act from occurring. This is due to the significance of the energy created of the complete and total belief and knowing the act will not happen.

When we perform an OCD act, repeatably with our belief that if we do not, what ever it is we are attempting to avoid will occur, hence we perform the act and everything is usually fine. This is do to the fact that the intensity of our belief that the negative act will not happen by performing our OCD act actually inhibits the surfacing of the negative occurrence. The energy of an absolute knowing through our cognitive thought process without any doubt whatsoever, we maintain a strong enough level of energy that when the OCD act is performed we know the negative act will not happen. Whatever we wish not to occur will not occur because of the absolute power of knowing without any doubt whatsoever.

Jesus stated, and I quote “if we could have an absolute knowing without any doubt than that which we desire shall come to pass.” And by the same token, through an absolute knowing, certain acts we do not wish to occur will not.

However, we are attempting to stop through our OCD, an act that does not in fact occur, and it is our positive absolute thinking regarding the act that may have disabled the negative act form happening. We then believe, we must continue to perform the act repeatedly, and that which we are trying to avoid will to not occur.

As humans, our cognitive thought process can be such that there are instances, where persons can create symptoms and disease through a psychosomatic thought processes, such as panic attacks and other symptoms of distress. Science has proven stress can play a huge role in disease, including but not limited to, heart disease and high blood pressure, though the stress created by our thoughts. It appears, it is our thought process that perpetuates what was just described above, regarding blood pressure, and other physical disease. If that is so, then would it not be conceivable that the thought process that creates distress and negative issues that science has described, may be strong enough to eliminate whatever it is the person is attempting to avoid by the use of OCD?

There are degrees of OCD from very mild to severe. What I reference is that which one may desire to continue, as described above and is very mild OCD. Actually it may be beneficial for the individual to continue the process described, providing it does not increase to a more significant level and currently is not a determent to the individual. A diagnosis by a professional may be necessary to determine the degree of OCD.

What I describe above regarding the use of OCD is based on my own personal experience and the study and use of energy work.
