We are self-healing beings and can find the pathway to move through challenges to solutions. The feeling of depression is very compelling and nothing to take as seriously as many do. It can be as easy as changing a channel on the radio. We can break through all of the reasons that are causing it and become happy, healthy and whole. Depression is not normal; It is a human beings reaction to many of life’s challenges turned inward stealing energy, confidence and peace.
Whatever imbalance occurs in our life, it begins with the mind and thoughts, traumas and pains and how we deal with them. Someone who is depressed has an ongoing litany of negative thoughts and listens to them and believes them. To surrender to these thoughts as truth lowers our resistance and creates depression and we move farther away from our magnificent self.
Physical and chemical imbalance are often a result of traumas and beliefs, fears and experiences that began with a deep inner imbalance of emotions and thoughts. Medicines, even herbs, were designed as a short-term solution to help the body remember wellness to assist with the natural process of healing. Healing depression is a journey of deep inner healing, changing patterns, beliefs and releasing fears and moving back into you in a loving positive way.
The power and beauty of the individual can be brought back. In working with clients and students who are experiencing symptoms and feeling depressed we transform the negative self-talk and discover the truth of what is not working in their life so we can face these and make healing changes. We then heal and release deeper energetic attachments and fears and realign us with our best self.
Health is a choice we must make every day over illness, pain and depression. Depression is a function of giving away personal power on many levels. Forging a new pathway, and reclaiming all of you is an important part of healing.
The old ways do not work so you must be persistent and creative. You begin with a commitment to you and break out of the fog of inner pain. Fear keeps you trapped and lost in confusion unable to find your way home to you. Both fear and depression are energies that are being hosted by you in your body-mind and need to be escorted out in order to have complete healing. This is easily accomplished with breathing practices and new understandings.
Your body comes into balance when you begin listening to the healthy part and focusing on that, and not the part that is speaking to you from imbalance. It is important to reinforce health and wellness every moment. Your body believes everything you think, so you must change those negative thoughts. They are not real and are like bullies holding you hostage as long as you give them more power than your deepest truth, which is happiness and health.
The way out of depression is a process. Some people move quickly and some take longer depending on the severity and length of the former depression and what caused it. Begin with the teachings and practices below and enjoy renewed health.
