Unhappy I need some advice...

I am 26, and have only ever been in twosome relationships. Both my girlfriend and I have discussed that an open/poly relationship is very appealing. The difficulty, of course, is jealousy (especially on my part).

I understand that jealousy is the manifestation of irrational preconceptions, and is triggered by insecurity, fear of abandonment and feelings of 'ownership'. Jealousy is basically a cultural brainwash, and I have realized that.

Can any of you polys give me some advise on how to overcome or deal with my jealousy? It seems to be very deeply rooted, and just thinking about my lover with someone else makes me very uncomfortable... and I hate feeling that way over something that I know is irrational.

Thanks.
