You're ok! I had this problem too and yeah it was a nightmare.
Right, some of this will sound strange, but I had the same problems and these things helped. If any of these are too strange skip them, but please
check each one incase one of them can be of use. And sorry that it's a bit long, I just had the problem for quite a while so am going through what
1) If you think you're cursing something by having certain thoughts, just say mentally "uncurse." And believe
you have a connection to the all
that will assist you. I know that sounds weird, but you have to trust that there's a power in the universe that can help you with this, somewhere,
anywhere, and instantly you won't feel alone with it. And yeah I know it seems strange but If you imagine something evil is attacking you, imagine the
opposite protecting you and believe there's other beings in the universe that will help you.
2) check everything you do, your eating and drinking habits, your living habits, if you're smoking try cutting down smoking and/or quitting smoking.
If you're filling yourself with sugar you're going to be restless and full of energy, and that definitely won't help, you have to find a calm state of
mind. If you're addicted to sugar or smoking/any other drug such as nicotene, it might be unconsciously feeling enslaved that's giving you this
problem, so you have to fight it which will bring you confidence and allow your mind to finally have some peace from it.
3) One thing that helped as much as anything else was meditating. Nothing to do with any god or goddess, just meditating, which helped me learn to
calm my mind down and also see the illusion of what was happening in my mind. Basically a lot of this stuff crops up when there's an underlying fear
of the problem and/or anxiety of it, you have to be able to calm yourself down and know that you can overcome it. Also if you're interested in
psychology try reading some carl jung (he deals with the interaction of conscious/unconscious a lot.) or whoever else you like/whatever type of
pschology interests you, if you're into philosophy try learning more of that, etc. Learning more about who and what you are might help you understand
your mind better and become aware of parts of your mind that can help.
4) One main thing to remember could be that you believe 100% that during the course of trying to help yourself you asked the all for help and believe
100% that there's some powers out there that can help you. Why is this possibly so important? For this simple reason = knowing that you asked the all
for help cancels out it being all your fault. One of the biggest problems is thinking you're going to be the cause of something bad, so if you fully
believe that there's beings in this universe, a god, goddess, whatever, and that you've put all you could into asking genuinely for help, if for some
insane reason something bad did
happen, there's no way you're solely to blame. Some people just have that type of problem, or at least I did,
and this helped me a lot when I was alone with it.
5) if everything else fails and you can't hack the thought of seeing a psychiatrist, and you're constantly restless : try going to the doctors and
asking for medication for anxiety. You'll be able to get something from him/her that will help you calm down. Likewise, if you're too down with it you
could say you're depressed and get something to bring you up instead. If EITHER of these things fail, get straight off the meds and try going to the
doctors and getting the courage up to tell them the truth about your problem. I'm saying this because I didn't go to the length of seeing a
psychiatrist but was still able to deal with it eventually, and anti-depressants helped at one time, anxiety meds another time.
Personally my problems were drugs, delusions, and a messed up lifestyle, but you could also have a natural OCD problem so keep that in mind if you try
one or more of whatever I suggested.
Anyway, good luck, and I hope you manage to get through it. Remember that you're not alone and that you can definitely get through this. Remember to
have confidence and belief in your ability to overcome it. If you don't have enough confidence and/or belief : simply practise having confidence and
belief. If you find anything at all that works, use the confidence and belief from whatever it is and stick with it, because even if it doesn't solve
everything you at least have something
giving you confidence/belief that you can build on as maybe a foundation.
