To put very simply, the real problem with OCD and Anxiety is that our primal alarm system is going off when nothing is actually wrong. It is being set off by intrusive thoughts or “what if scenarios” about the past and future. The point being that your alarm system is trying to move you into survival mode when there is no danger. And the harder we try to resolve this possible threat, the more we indirectly validate it causing the OCD and Anxiety Loop to start spinning.
However, by changing the way we respond to our thoughts and feelings we can actually reprogram the alarm system. In this episode, I want to share a simple metaphor that can help with that.
