Life can be messy. Sometimes you need a little support to make your way through it. I love to help guide people through their challenges & to find the beauty in our messes.

You are not alone. They are called Intrusive Thoughts, and they are very common, especially in people with Anxiety disorders. I used to get Intrusive Thoughts all the time. Some people will visualize the memory or the thought as an item, then destroy the item, or imagine the item disappearing (like a puff of smoke). Being able to physically "get rid of" the thought really helps some people. Another thing you can do is to block them entirely, just not allow yourself to think the full thought out and instead think of something else, like gardening or yoga or astrology.
