We can all have some rather dark dreams or fleeting thoughts or images during our day. A lot of the time, we might not even understand them. To banish a dark recurring image, try drawing it. Draw it big, and true, to how you remember it. Once you are satisfied with its likeness, crumple it up, step on it, rip it into two, before discarding it in the garbage.
