The effects of depression can paralyze and limit your ability to cope
Depression is a hard demon to deal with and it has claimed far to many souls in my life.
Each week I take questions from my Facebook page to answer here in this column. This week Dave writes: I am just venting but i tell you there are days were i just want to check out and go home.
Yes, Dave I do hear you loud and clear. The way you word your message and the fact that you don’t capitalize your “i” says a lot.
When you are feeling insignificant and low, your hand writing reflects that. Sometimes you have to dig down deep to “remember” what your soul wanted to experience while you are here.
No one can do that for you but you. Keep asking your angels and Highest Guardian Angel to help you remember why you are here.
You have to find quiet time in your life to hear them. You can break the depression cycle when you create alone time to pray, take long quite walks in Nature, do some personal ceremonies or meditations.
Healing can happen with some diligent practice and steadfast determination!
You are a very sensitive soul, and you are not at all alone. I meet super sensitive souls all the time in my line of work with mediumship.
Being sensitive in this case means you can feel the spirit world and would rather be there than here. Which doesn’t make it right for you to take steps to make that happen. ie; suicide
I think sometimes depression is a reflection of us not properly digesting our experiences here. So in that case, you have to find other ways to look at life and the cards you have been dealt.
A big part of your goal for coming to this planet is to challenge yourself. Your Angels work hard to help organize little opportunities for you to push your comfort zone.
Soul clearing is one way to back out of your space any negative influences that are sucking the life out of you. The process also helps you to get some clues of where you are on forgiveness issues. If you have unfinished business with other souls, it leaves a taint on you until you forgive and take steps to make things right. Or as the case may be, the other party forgives you of a wrong.
There are more ways than one to sort this out. I offer the soul clearing and mediumship in my work. You can also use other therapies to help you get back into balance — Counseling, Emotional Freedom Technique, Purification Ceremonies, Shamanic Ceremonies, Qi Gong and many more.
Each of the 8 Great Powers will offer ways of reclaiming our soul pieces and healing.
One healing idea is to spend some time each day checking in with Mother Earth, also known as Gaia.
She is a living breathing Angelic being in her own right.
She personally invited you to this dimension for the purpose of immersing your self in a physical form. We willingly do this so we can learn from this physical immersion. The feelings of being limited by our physical body. As well as all the needs of the body. This whole huge mish-mash of stimulation.
She agreed to be a support to you and a source of encouragement when you got down. If you just look around with fresh eyes, you will see that she is trying, even as we speak, to help you remember more of who you really are on a soul level.
You might catch a glimpse of a sun ray, or a beautiful hawk will fly beside you as you drive to work. A chance fragrance as you walk into the post office. There are many ways she speaks to all of us. Through the animals we see, the plants might share their delightful fragrance, the stars, moon and everything in between. They do this to catch your attention. To help you think in a different way. Consider there is more going on that what we might have thought.
Stay in tune with the tides for grounding ideas!
My teacher always recommended that we follow the tides of the Universe. Like the full and new moons, the equinox and solstice seasons. Stay in touch with what is happening in the Universe. This has a way of helping you get in touch with your self, what is going on to cause depression and suicidal thoughts.
I intend these ideas be a source of inspiration for you and others with ideas of suicide and checking out.
That is not an answer and will only keep you in this sad cycle for another life journey until you work your way through it. So make up your mind to work your way through this in this life time.
