What is depression? It is the body’s way of dealing with change, buried emotion, and stress. It is quite normal to be depressed, and when one is depressed one should try to ride it through. The human body is used to having one way of doing things. When change comes, it can create a huge turmoil in the physical body. The same is true with buried emotions. The body has to cope as the emotion comes to the surface. Often there is a need to cry, but this is suppressed because it is not “normal.” The body has periods of time when it is overloaded with stress, but the person feels they are invincible and just keeps pushing themselves. Then one day they have to stop, and the body goes into complete and utter chaos. This also can cause depression because the old way is not being followed. You are in a state of change, but the body does not know how to cope.
When depression comes into your life do not fear it. It is there to make you look at your life and the way you are. Ask Spirit to help you find the answers. If you ask you will find them. Allow whatever is in there to come out, whether emotion (anger, frustration, fear etc.), stress, or just release. Do not fear it, for it is meant to help you cleanse away something that is no longer needed. If drugs are used to help the depression, then also seek the help of someone who can help you find the cause. You can find natural sources to help you also. It is nature’s way of cleansing. Remember that.
