Depression is a difficult, draining state of mind and dealing with it is not easy. When you lose your will to try to do something, to even want it, you can end up in a grey land where nothing seems possible. But – it only seems so.
While overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t just will yourself to “snap out of it,” but you do have more control than you realize – even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. The key is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there by making positive choices for yourself each day.
It is important to find again the beauty of life in small things, nature, and start to nurture yourself. Forgive to the past. And find a way to cherish life again. Get active. Connect with people, improve social life and activities. In many cases is important to have a look at the diet as well, maybe even to visit a nutritionist. It is known that the right food choices make us feel better.
There can be several reasons for depression. But one big reason is definitely unprocessed, unhealed traumas from childhood or later. Whenever we suppress emotions which we aren’t able to deal with, they go in our subconscious and silently affect us and control us from there. After years of suppressing them can many things can happen. Some people would become over-reactive, anxious or over-stressed, while others can become so closed that nothing gets out. Emotions become stiff and heavy, yet we are less and less aware of them and everything becomes grey. We can end up without will, without hope, and everything what we need to do, becomes difficult. This is what we call depression. For some people this can last only for a while, while others get caught in this state for many, many years.
To break this circle of waking up every day with same grey feelings and thoughts, we need first to understand that our state creates chemical reactions in our brain, and as they become habits we become somewhat “addicted” to them. Our body gets used to those substances which are created when we are depressed (or in any other difficult emotional state).
So we need to reprogram ourselves if we want to step out of this circle. Even if we become aware of our traumas, we still need to heal them. And when we heal the traumas our brain can still have a habit to keep on creating reactions. Healing depression is like peeling an onion. It takes some time and persistence. This is very difficult to do alone.
I am here to help. I offer holistic counseling combining hypnotherapy, emotional processes, naturopathy and energy healing. With continuous work we can reprogram ourselves so that we may feel peace. We will train ourselves to adopt a more positive outlook on life and take responsibility for our feelings and our life.
I work with children as well.
