Depression - A More Empowering Perspective!

Depression is experienced worldwide and can strike at any
time. You may feel numb, sad or apathetic. Life may lose its
meaning and hopelessness may set in. It may feel as if this
is the end of the road. You are intuitively right, but not
in the sense you might think!

You see, you have come to a dead end in the sense that your
life wants to take on a whole new meaning and expansion. In
order to expedite that, it is necessary to release the
things that have been holding you back.

You may feel the earth crumble beneath your feet as if the
rug has been pulled from under you. That is actually very
true: there are no foundations. Your old ones have gone,
and the new ones are yet to arrive. To build a new house,
you first need to dismantle the old one.

It is a time when you may be letting go of people in your
life, parts of your personality or other things that you
have outgrown in some way because they are no longer
necessary for your next evolutionary step.

In spiritual terms, rather than viewing your depression as
an illness, it is an experience of "going through the void",
where one path or one way of doing things has ended but a new
one has not yet begun. This may feel like sitting in limbo.

All of us may experience many such times in our lives, when
we need to enter this "void" to get clear, to shed our old
skin and come back renewed.

Depression is a time of deep introspection and
re-evaluation. It is a time when we question our abilities,
the meaning we have given things, where we are heading, who
we are and what our role is. Trusting that the universe is a
benevolent place where everything happens for our highest
good, even if we cannot understand why things happen as they
do, can get us through hard times.

At other times, depression can provide a way out of having
to face making a difficult decision. It is our friend in
that it buys us time.

Depression, viewed as an inner journey to your very depths
where you uncover your own wisdom and positive learning, can
actually help you be with the experience, rather than
thinking it is a mental illness and trying to resist it.
