Depression is a mood disorder and can affect how you think, feel and behave. It can lead you to feel erratic or lethargic. What I find disconcerting is when you have depression or could be showing signs of it, people tend to shy away and you find yourself left isolated and alone. If this is happening to you, I recommend getting out, even just for a walk perhaps to the local shop. The more often people see you, the more likely they are to say hello again. On each trip make it your purpose to connect with at least one person, even if it’s to ask the time. We all need human interaction and the physical form is much better. Human beings are born to be social and in groups.
I also feel that places like Facebook can be a great help, connect to motivational sites that can uplift your mood. However, if feeling really low, steer clear of over happy people, always posting great this and great that without showing their vulnerability or moments of meltdown, as this can make you feel worse, and perhaps push happiness so far away it seems impossible to reach. I compare this to airbrushed photos, they both hide the truth.
We live in a world of duality, so both feelings are naturally felt. I read so often ‘steer away from negativity’ it will bring you down. It will only bring you down if you allow it or need it. You have attracted this low vibration because of a frequency that you are transmitting. It has crossed your path for a reason, it was meant to, either for you to reach out and serve others, reflect how fortunate you are in comparison to others or to learn what you have been avoiding and suppressing.
Many people want to avoid people with depression as much as those with depression want to avoid themselves and for some they want to avoid themselves so much they, like Robin Williams end up taking their own life leaving those behind full of remorse, frustration and sometimes anger.
I believe that suppression leads to depression. I know I have attempted suppression endless times to avoid being angry or saying something that might hurt someone else’s feelings or to be accepted into a group for fear of being further alone.
Connect with your emotions because your body is telling you something you need to know in order to grow as a person and further connect with your soul.
In the past I avoided the lower vibrating emotions but have now accepted they are my friends as much if not more than laughter, joy and happiness. And the best part, when I do work through the low moods I find more laughter, joy and happiness than I did before only this time it expands from within.
Depression can take people down so low that they often think the pain of death lingers less than the pain of living. And the reason you are still here is because you have not yet accomplished your life’s mission, the greatness with you is waiting to hatch out. From my experience I needed support, I asked for support but I did not receive support not until the day I fell to my knees on the kitchen floor and sobbed my heart out, I asked the power to be, Source to show me a sign, any sign, I was willing and open to see, hear, think, feel, touch, smell, taste a sign. And when the sobbing was finally done I heard a voice telling me I was now in healing and would be guided as requested. I learned that I been asking in the wrong places for support, the system could not serve me because Western culture had little to no concept of what this kind of meltdown meant.
You see if I had lived within an indigenous tribe, a shaman would have a different view of my mental health condition; they believe depression is the birth of a wonderful gifted healer. I am on a Life Path 22/4. Within my duties of many, I am here to understand, love and believe in myself. I will have been tried and testing many times over. From my experience, growth and wisdom, I have various missions to accomplish. I am being guided to raise the consciousness of humanity, merge the polarities, live honestly and with integrity, I will be challenged deeper and harder than many in order to connect compassionately, serve and shine. My task in this life time is to turn your dreams into a reality. This feels so natural to say and share that it must be my truth. The Numerology confirms this.
From my heart to yours, please know you are not alone, depression is leading you to your truth when you stop looking externally and look within. You too have a mission which I will share in a future post.
Until then, know and accept all emotion is important and valid. Do not suppress any emotion as this creates dis-ease and chronic pain. Understanding how the body works energetically allows you to get back on Path; your path.
Have you thought about your path? Do you know for what greatness you are here for?
