What is DEPRESSION? What does this word even mean?
Why not call it being able to expand your ability to feel deeply. To feel the full range of your emotions. Someone invented a word for it and a label and put it in a box naming it „sick - needs medication, dysfunctional state of being, needs to be changed“. This someone was me. And you. All of us. We were believing lies. And now its time to let them go.
It really is just feeling deeply. Congratulate yourself for being awesome, for allowing yourself to go within and opening old traumas that called for you as you were now ready to release.
You are so powerful right now that your soul invited you to let go of these old wounds because now you hold the love inside to support yourself while you face your deepest sorrow AGAIN.
Yes here they are again. You were so innocent and pure when you arrived here as a baby that it was too easy to put some ballast of unworthy beliefs upon yourself. You thought whats wrong with the world must be because of you. You thought you needed to change in order to survive, to be a better you.
For myself it was the time of very early childhood - I was only 1 year old. I was given away daily to strangers - to Kindergarden. It might be ‚normal‘ in our ’society’ to ‚join‘ a constitution like Kindergarden early in life for your parents need to work, need to make money to support the family. There is no other way - says the Ego.
It is cruel and against nature - says the heart. A baby belongs to its mother and father. A baby needs to be held in love to feel safe. Which animal would give their babies to some other animal believing it is better for the little one? This is life upside down. We are taught to believe lies like this and that there is no other way.
Leaving and being left imprinted deeply within my soul as beliefs of:
„Something is wrong with me thats why I have to go away.“
„None ever will love me. They are always leaving.“
„Unconditional love doesn’t exist here in this reality.“
As a child you automatically search within yourself for what is wrong. Your heart is open. The feeling of being so far away from home never left you. Until today.
When you either let yourself being labeled as ‚depressed‘ or you recognize your own power and worship yourself when you allow yourself to believe that a great time of change has hit you. Ride the wave, expand the range of your emotions. Know that you are growing. Know that you are purging, releasing what no longer serves. Know that its time for the new to enter your life. Know that you have subconsciously already agreed to all of this. Know that you already know. Whats happening. You are changing, your DNA is changing, your cells adapting, your whole being is becoming your true Self. It was you who asked for this as you knew you were ready. Ready to feel it all. Honor your sensitivity. Relax and take time for yourself. Don’t rush anything as there really is nothing to do other than to allow yourself to embrace and shine.
Don’t try to understand with your mind what thats supposed to mean. Don’t judge.
Shining means loving yourself. Loving you for everything that you are. Don’t pick a few to love and hate the rest. Love all of you. Today shining means doing nothing, crying, being unmotivated, having confusing mind conversations and loosing hope for a moment. Today shining means living in hell. Today shining means feeling it all. Be grateful for this! It revealed more of who you truly are. You carry around TOO MUCH. And you know it. So today you were blessed by all of creation. Today you were facing it. Today you were feeling it. Today you were honoring yourself, inviting every dark shadow to join you for spending time together. WOW! How awesome are you!? Go celebrate!
And if your shadows are still with you - keep on riding the wave. Know your feelings are here to be seen and felt and loved. I know you can already see the light at the end of the tunnel. You can! This is the most amazing day of your life. Now. There is no end. Only a bridge. That always connects you. A song just reminded me. That there is always someONE who will ease your mind.
