Sorrow, grief, anger or bereavment doesn't make you depressed.
It's your THOUGHTS about your emotions that does!
Your RESISTANCE to what you feel!
Emotions are natural and always healing when let running their course. The thoughts we have about them - or rather our own judgement about how they SHOULD look or behave - can oppose or allow the natural healing processes we inhabit.
The choice is always ours once we know.
There are so many tools we can use to heal ourselves. Nature is a wonderful healer, along with love in any form. But the ultimate healer, the only one that truly can ALLOW your full healing, is self-love:
- Showing yourself compassion.
- Stopping judging yourself.
- Stopping wanting yourself to perform or act in certain ways.
- Stopping hunting goals and adding pressure.
- Just let yourself be for a while.
- Surrender to what is.
- Don't hold on to anger, resentment or sorrow if joy comes knocking on your door.
(Because it will...!)
~ You are a cork holding yourself under water (Abraham-Hicks)
If you let go, life will find a way
You will float up.
It's just a matter of time.
Life can change in a minute.
In an hour.
In a moment.
There is always, ALWAYS hope.
Because you are the sun.
You are love incarnated.
You have the power whether you feel it or not.
And even if you don't feel it or believe it yet, this is a world of contrasts, and just as intense as your depression or grief if, it is there for you to be propelled to experience the opposite!! Joy of living, excitement about living, peace and self-assurance is still available for you to live and have.
It is possible.
In fact, this is what you planned at soul-level.
Being the arrow pulled backwards to have power in your flight towards joy.
You have experienced the depth.
Now let yourself experience the heights.
...And ask for help!
Shame is wrought from self-judgement, and openness is its antidote. There is so much help out there to help you, its unbelievable!! But first you must help you. Open up to allow love from yourself. See that you are worthy. Be compassionate. Otherwise noone else can reach you and outside help is futile.
"Pain may be unavoidable, but suffering is a choice."
So right now, sit still, breathe deeply and say «yes» to yourself.
Yes to love.
Yes to healing.
It may not happen in the way you expect or even want, but it will always happen in the way you need, and it always can HAPPEN.
Trust love, and trust you.
Because you are love.
