    You don't, you reconcile with the person you are and you'll feel a lot better. Learn to distinguish between fantasy and what is real and if that doesn't work go speak with a psychologist/minister/priest or whoever.

    You pull a frowny face, turn away, and shake your head. And say to yourself:

    That is absolutley ridiculous

    Or: Leave me be.

    I personally find it easier to blame something else for creating the images, because I believe it to be doing. But thats me.

    If you are afraid of your imagination, it will chase you around. Imagination can't be stopped, but it can be guided this way or that.

    We have various drives, as inevitable and natural as breathing and sneezing. Embrace these drives to own them and channel them to better objects.

    I think, Parag1973, you mean images that you find erotic and obscene. It's the obscene part that bothers you, right? If you accept that you will have erotic thoughts, in any case, then go ahead and have erotic thoughts, on purpose, only replace the obscene element with a virtuous one if you can imagine that. See if you can enjoy those good erotic images more than the bad ones.

    If none of these work, try occupying your mind with something else entirely. Work on a problem in your mind, like trying to imagine something you are having trouble understanding, watch a movie, write something, create art, play a sport or online poker, etc. Try different things until you find a combination that does the job. If you still can't find something, try and imagine how the other characters in your mental image must be experiencing your fantasy, try to really imagine yourself in their position and the sheer horror (if it is such a disturbing image) might repel your mind enough. If even that fails, go see a recommended psychologist or a religious leader if you are religious.

    Why would you want to banish those images?!
    I for example would of LOVED to have an imagenary world that looks real.
    With the ever daily rut I'm confused to why would anyone would like
    to let go of such a gift?

    If the images are scary, or come by at bad times then its bad.
    But if you'll learn to tame them(it is possible; it's your mind afterall)
    you could end up with a very fun "universe" to control.

    Don't try to look at it as a burden. This kind of point of view is never good for anything(well.. mostly...)

    It depends what is causing the images.

    If you are horny and seeing horny images, then take a cold shower, distract yourself, watch Tv, read a book.........wank

    If you are seeing disturbing images of another kind that upset you, do the same (minus the wank)

    but consider why you might be experiencing them.'

    Once I had post natal depression and I had disturbing thoughts that I found hard to shift. This inability to stop thinking about these things worried me greatly. Fortunately it seemed to sort itself out but I did at the time try as the posters above suggest just telling myself

    'NO .....bad thought go away'

    and so on.

    Good luck
