I was just diagnosed with dysphoric depression. I really don’t want to take pills for it. I know I need to eat better and sleep better and stop damaging myself in general, but part of the problem is that I reject improvement and it’s hard for me to make changes. Do you know of any spiritual ways that I can motivate myself?
I know i always say this but if you haven’t discovered the magic of the chakra system i would highly suggest researching and discovering which chakras are blocked within your ethereal system. Our chakras go down all the way to the soul ethereal level and are governed by our thought procession so your depression has an inner cause as well as an outer cause.
Meditation is also a good mind tool to help you gather self-worth and your respect back for yourself. Or finding a metaphysical shop or anyone that does reiki healing would be a beautiful help to your problem as well. Reiki is like going for a spiritual massage definitely recommend. I am studying psychology right now in college and I have come to find that medicine works in the form of placebo, the power of the mind is great we believe it holds the cause and it helps us believe were treating the symptoms but it doesn’t fix the inner cause of the problem. It’s how all medicine works truly it all goes back to the chakra system because it is how we’re made up. It does sound a little crazy at first but once you understand how it works it will truly change your life forever. The real cause of illness is developed around misaligned chakras and blocked energy flow. If the block is serious it will eventually turn into an illness, such as a sore throat, ulcers, headaches, etc. you name it, it’s all internal as well as external.
Mentally depression, goes to a few different chakras because each one connects with the other. It could be a problem within the
Root, our stability grounding and family tribal power, developed in early childhood, eating disorders, our fears, inability to stay grounded to the material world and this can be carried on throughout our lives, changing daily. Bloodstone works wonders with the root, eating properly, establishing stability within material and security knowing you are secure with yourself, money, with the earth, family and friends. Taking frequent walks in nature, doing hatha yoga, connecting with nature, doing visualization work of having your body connected to roots within the tree of life and eating are all excellent grounding methods.
The heart Chakra which is the big one here, this is our bridge, our connection point of merging the spiritual world within the physical/material world. When this one isn’t functioning you will have chest pain, tightness, deep depression, lack of self-worth, lack of forgiveness for self and others. Rose Quartz is a life saver when it comes to this chakra. Forgiving people, especially yourself for all your faults and all your weakness, realizing you are beautiful inside and out, creating affirmations to be worthy of yourself and connecting with loved ones are good sources for helping this one.
And the Crown Chakra, our spirituality how well we believe in the faith of the universe and how it governs our lives. Lack of faith in self and the universal energy, lack of belief inside ourselves and the world around us can very easily trigger depression from the function of hopelessness and longing caused into despair from ability of not beliving in karmic universal cosmic consciousness. Doubts. Meditation plays a huge role in awakening this one.
I hope this helps you,
much healing light beautiful soul <3
