Thank you for your good question! 🙂
No, I will not tell you that it is attachment, because is not.. 🙂
It is “just” a karmic account “starting” to unfold. I had similar experience as well. There are some souls who have the “task” of becoming “instruments” so we can discover our own weaknesses. We never know how the other soul feels, so we cannot assume anything about another soul.
Avoiding a person is not the answer. It will make you think more about that person and that may change your feelings.
Avoidance could be used when you do not feel adequate at a particular time and rather than making mistakes, you want to “postpone” situations which you know may happen.
Remember that attraction is the same thing as repulsion just different polarity. As a matter of fact, one feeling may take you to experience the opposite as well. 🙂
Through my experience what I suggest is to avoid “bowing down” to the energy that we feel from someone.
If you feel repulsion, uncomfortable, “not yourself,” sooner or later you may “bow down” as being submissive while in contact with that person. If that feeling develops into attraction, you will definitively “bow down” and will lose your self respect.
I wouldn’t use a “trick” like discrediting, for a trick is only tricking your own mind for a temporary time.
If you want to see real changes practice the “a-temporal” stage as shared here or what Baba calls the stage of the point (Avyakt Murli April 19, 1969) and have always good wishes for that soul, even when your interaction may be harsh or sweet. Maintain equanimity, that is self respect.
Become aware of your “freedom,” value it and when the thought arises about a particular soul, be aware of it and choose “not to go into it,” that is “remain free,” and determined.
Finally, those things are common. They will go away as long as you maintain your self respect, meaning not “bowing down.” There are souls who will put a “fight,” and when the other energy is too strong, they will bow down. There is no need to “put a fight,” just to maintain your self respect.
Just be aware and do not let the “seed” of a weak thought enter your mind. Always respond maintaining your self respect, your freedom.
