For a good spiritual director for a scrupulous person

I have OCD and scrupulosity is a major problem I face in this illness (as some of you may have seen it in my threads). I think I do need a spiritual director, so that:

  1. I can rely on him on judgements, which I am often confused in and doubtful about.

  2. If I need an ERP treatment, he can overlook the design to make sure it’s not sinful and it’s suitable for me.

I ask for your prayers that God will grant me all that I need in this illness, especially a spiritual director, and heal me if he is willing to.



God will give you a good spiritual director and you will be able trust their advice. Obedience to director will help you overcome this.

Be patient with yourself as you get through this. I know how horrible it feels. It gets better

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Please rely on Jesus Christ and put all your trust in Him alone. And please try to find your peace in your daily life, by knowing your yourself: your strengths and weaknesses.

For example:

What are the things you are good at? Clue: things that seems easy for you that others find not that easy. Ex. Singing, cooking, composing poems, cleaning & tidying, or anything.

Do things you enjoy and avoid triggers (things/ situations) that makes you fall into no-peace. For example: if being alone is good for you, then be. If certain people makes you anxious then try to minimize contact with them, or avoid topics that triggers your worry, and so on.

May the Holy Spirit guide you & please believe this: God is Love. He love you and He has a plan for you. He gives you talents and provide all the things you need to pursue whatever goodness you want to do with your life. You only need to find those in you. Discover those goodness He has given you since the beginning of time by the Holy Spirit guidance, you can find those in you. And please do not listen to the accuser who always try to distract you from all the good things from God

So, don’t be scrupulous. Remember: God is Love. Whenever the accuser speaks, just say in your heart “go away in Jesus Name!”

Pray The Lords Prayer every morning when you wake up. Before sleep, think about the good things that happened on that day/ recently and give thanks for that. No need to mention all. One or two goodness is enough.

thankyou Lord today I cook my own meal
thankyou Lord I am healthy

do not mention any bad things the accuser trying to accuse you. Just say thankyou for the goodness only, no matter how small is okay, one or two is enough. And sleep thinking God loves you always.

May the Lord bless you & heal you completely from OCD & scrupulousity. And may The Holy Spirit guide you rediscover yourself and find your peace with yourself. Amen.


LORD Jesus please heal your son.
