RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (September 18, 2005)      

          Depression:  Probable Cause:  Anger you feel you do not have a right to have.  Hopelessness.  - New Thought Pattern:  I now go beyond other people's fears and limitations.  I create my life.  - Louise Hay, You Can Heal Your Life
           Depression:  Correspondent/Cause:  Despair, desperation, despondency, discouragement, lack of ease, selfishness, and fear.  - Solution (treatment):  There is no disappointment in heaven, and the heavenly life can be lived here on earth.  Do something for others.  Give yourself unreservedly in your own heart to something Higher, God.  Any life can be transmuted into a gloriously beautiful one; peace; love; rest; faith.  - Frederick Keeler, Christian Victory Instruction

As we can easily see from the words of both Louise Hay and Frederick Keeler, depression is created from our dominant thoughts.  Not all thoughts create depression ... but "patterns" of thought "create" ... either positive or negative experiences.  Depression is dangerous ... it can bring results that are far-reaching into our Life's experience.  Depression can affect our health, relationships, career, finances and our mental stability.  If left un-checked, it can destroy our self-image and bury us in self-pity.

          We can heal depression ... but we must be determined to do so ... and we must not allow ourselves to dismiss it without healing it ... for once it begins, it begins its insidious separation, in our mind, from the Truth of Being, from Life.  Depression has been called a "living death" and for good reason.  It can be debilitating.  Nothing narrows our view of the Universe as effectively as depression.  It is, in effect, a darkness covering the soul, blinding us to the Light of Truth.  If we find ourselves feeling "helpless and hopeless" about our circumstances in life ... we are suffering from depression.  Often circumstances will repeat themselves when we are going through depression ... lack of sleep and restlessness are often associated with depression.  Using drugs or other remedies may often "cover up" the situation and the healing of the condition delayed.  For some, the depression may be so severe that medical attention is necessary ... to "help" them move through it ... however, the healing must be done in Mind ... All Is Mind ... and in Mind we can realize the healing for depression.

        To heal depression we must be willing to go "within" and make a demand upon our subconscious to reveal to us what is at the "root" of our depression.  For some of us there will be an immediate response and for others it may take a few days or perhaps weeks before there is a response.  And when we receive the response ... we must pay attention to it ... denial, blame or shame ... do not heal ... they only hold us in bondage to whatever it is that needs to be healed.  The most challenging cases of depression are those where nothing has been done to heal it or to address it in any constructive way.  It does not go away by itself ... it only becomes steadfast in our subconscious and becomes a "pattern" ... to be experienced again and again until it is healed.  The "cause" resides in the sub-conscious mind ... and it can be healed.

       As we work with our subconscious, we will find improvement as we seek out things that excite us ... things that break our past patterns.  Isolation will only increase our depression.  Many have found release through walking or by doing things that are new and different for them.  Helping others and doing volunteer work can work wonders as these keep us from focusing on the feelings of depression and can create a "gap" in our consciousness for the healing to unfold.  It is important that we not magnify our situation.  This can lead to becoming "self-centered" and "self-absorbed."  Nothing is permanent in our experiences ... everything changes ... it is helpful to remind ourselves of this daily and often.

       Once we have healed depression, most will find that they want to do more and be more than ever before.  There is a great energy that is renewed and realized when depression has been healed.  It is natural for many people to want to share more of themselves with the world through greater accomplishment in their creative endeavors to helping others who are experiencing problems in their lives.  This renewed energy brings greater self-confidence and greater self-assurance.  The consciousness is opened to greater love; forgiveness of others and self, greater giving-ness of self and a more perfect alignment with Infinite Good, God. 

And So It Is!  

Letting Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
