"The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until
they are too strong to be broken." (Samuel Johnson)

The PAST is Still PRESENT
in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Our violent past left many imprints on us, some so severe as to haunt
our lives now and to impair our effective functioning in society. Here are the
most common causes of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder driven by
past life resonances:
Hoarding Type of OCD Thought Patterns
Rampant hoarding of ALL objects including trash.
Individuals who keep everything they have ever
received or every penny they have ever made. In past lives, even trash, which
served as insulation, could be the difference between life and death.
Rampant guarding of objects considered valuable.
Whether it was State Papers, expensive jewelry, or
other pricey/sensitive objects, failure to store valuable objects properly
could merit a brutal beating or even a death sentence past lives.
Rampant guarding of objects through excessive intervention.
Endlessly checking drawers, door, locks, and appliances
to make sure they are shut, locked, or turned off. Successfully guarding
against fire and theft meant job security in past lives.
Cleanliness Type of OCD Thought Patterns
Constantly washing hands, feet, or other body parts.
In times of plague, leprosy, typhoid, etc,
constant washing was a popular home remedy to ward them off. The more one
washed, the safer one was supposed to be from infectious illness.
Always on guard against the presence of germs.
Since Louis Pasteur's discovery of germs, many with
past life fears of disease developed fears of bodily germs, waste, or fluids
which drive it. This triggers subconscious past deaths from dirt/disease.
Constantly arranging/re-arranging items in certain ways.
Those who have to clean what is already clean
usually were beaten to death by masters for failing to "clean up"
according to their ridiculous rules (of balance, exactness, order, symmetry, etc).
Eccentric Type of OCD Thought Patterns
Unnecessary repeated motions which create excessive time delays.
Those who must open and close doors, get up and
sit down, or touch objects a specific number of times have ritual OCD. In past
lives, these were all rituals mandated by monarchs on pain of death.
Constantly thinking about certain sounds, images, or words.
In past lives, teachers believed that the only way
everyone could learn was through constant repitition. Those who were
"slow" were pressured into putting non-stop attention on memorization.
Constantly counting certain numbers over and over again.
In past lives, without technology to perform
complex calculations, individuals had to perform multiple counts of the
same items to make sure they got it right... or suffer a beating or
a death sentence.
Risk Averse Type of OCD Thought Patterns
Fear of thinking evil or sinful thoughts or acting contrary to religion.
For many, in past lives, used
religion as a life raft. They believed that if they avoided sin like
the plague, then nothing bad could ever happen to them. So they
scrutinize their every action.
Fear of doing work incorrectly and of making mistakes.
"Work makes free" was a motto in past lives.
There is a constant nagging worry that tasks were done poorly, even when they
know the individual knows for a fact that is not true.
Fear of harming a family, friend, or acquaintance inadvertantly.
Those whose jobs forced them into killing
or maiming others in past lives fear doing so in the present. They often
fear their own physical strength and always mistrust results of their own actions.
Risk Taking Type of OCD Thought Patterns
Sports activity that put health, wealth, and happiness at risk.
Despite massive injuries, invasive
surgeries, and heartfelt pleas from loved ones, extremers remain committed
to "their sport" until it kills or permanently incapacitates them.
Substance abuse that puts health, wealth, and happiness at risk.
Individuals can experience addiction to the same
substances lifetime after lifetime. Each lifetime offers the chance to
break the grip of substances and move forward clean and sober.
Sexual behavior that puts health, wealth, and happiness at risk.
Individuals who risk their health and wealth to engage
in what is considered to be sexually deviant behavior. OCD sexual
behaviors are deep seated and take multitides of lives to break.
