Depression Series #4: Moderate to severe depression

May 4, 2010

The next level of depression takes us deeper into the unconscious mind and is usually due to our discontentment with the status quo.

 Some depressions can become more serious. We develop an addictive pattern that makes us journey to the same place, churning the same thoughts over and over again.  This behaviour can become as severe and as deep as our emotions dictate. The deeper the imagination the deeper the depression becomes.

 There is another very important element to these kinds of depressions, which relate to the mind.  The mind stores the past up to date, which holds our instinct and makes life possible. Routinely we will enter into the mind and journey, but when we become involved in our emotions it becomes extremely difficult to detach.

 Although we are aware that we cannot resolve the past, we develop this desperate urge to keep trying. We go aimlessly searching without a serious objective, just repeating the same.

This form of addiction can easily manifest as we are always in need of emotional explosions and reactions, by magnifying and manifesting events of the past, every thought fuels our addiction. We become alienated, we will feel that none of our present life makes any sense, as if ones sanity is being lost and there is no way out.

 Like a revolving door we can get off at any moment that we choose, but regardless, we keep on going on the same cycle continuing the ride.

Of course in this situation we do not think about what we are doing to the physical self, nevertheless we will notice and complain about minor discomforts such as stomach ache and back pain. 

When a situation becomes deeply embedded it naturally alters our behaviour.  To release our sadness or anger we traumatise the self as a form of self-punishment.  This affects our health and it is through our beliefs that we allow it to spread.

Naturally with all these forms of behaviour we can trigger or initiate an altered state, which on the long term can manifest into some form of condition or another.

All of this is preventable.

 It is extremely important that when we journey into the mind that we make use of the situation and try to learn and understand the way in which our mind is working.

 Always make the effort to question whether your thoughts are imaginary, unreachable, or unrealistic.  Always look at your imagination, what is it creating? Where is it taking you? And why?

 Wait for the answers. In time you will differentiate whether your thoughts are mental processes or based only on emotion.

Understanding Depression series: #1 Natural Depression

March 12, 2010

Understanding depression produces far greater benefits than accepting current perceptions about depression, which can easily cause further restrictions.

The simplest and most common form of depression is the influence of the atmosphere.  The atmosphere is forever changing, whether climatically or through alterations in pressure.  These variations affect all of us naturally, as well as every living thing on Earth in one form or another. 

This type of depression is part of our every day life, the daily ups and downs that we naturally feel. However, our feelings can become easily magnified by the influence of our emotions, imagination and lack of understanding as to why we feel this way.

This is not an isolated feeling. You will notice that other people will feel the same. Certain types of energies react to atmospheric pressure in the same way; hence the low point is spread over a population rather than just affecting an individual.

This type of depression reflects our natural self, a form of regenerating our energy. A natural depression serves its purpose and must never be mistaken for other forms of deeper depressions. A natural depression can last from one day to a week or two then it will shift naturally.

Like the cycle of the day and the night, after darkness comes light. The pressure lifts and we feel vibrant again, forgetting that we were ever miserable.

 Natural depression is an important part of our existence that must be embraced and understood. We must learn to adapt and comply with the needs and demands of our ever-changing environment, without letting it control us.
