I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you, wanting to be able to find this when I got a moment to come back to it, was a lot of the
reason for my original comment. :
In reply as to what is going on, I have lived here for a long time and being prone to depression, and having some negative experiences and people in
here, I am afraid that the energy has just really built up to the point where I am having a VERY hard time overcoming it and even getting up the
energy to do anything about it. almost like trying to walk through water. Really starting to feel trapped here. I think that maybe it has become self
protective, me taking SO LONG to get back to this thread is just one example, I had every intention on getting back earlier.
There have been a couple of instances of "something"? flashes of light out of the corner of my eye, But mostly it is the negative atmosphere that I
feel has become almost too much of a struggle for me to combat.
Is the cause of depression a spiritual/paranormal cause or is it a regular cause? Sometimes when life doesn't go the way we want too, or things that
happen to our live affect us emotional, those can be causes for depression. If its a spiritual cause, I recommend smudging saging your house and you
especially. If there are negative/bad energies stifling your home or you, the smudging should help soften up the energy. Repeat weekly as necessary.
Open windows in your house to get sunlight in, get outta the house more and enjoy the sunlight. Sunlight itself is a power to overcome darkness.
If it feels like the air is thick with past event drama, maybe from the previous owners of the house. Take some water and bleach and scrub down the
walls and floor, when your doing this thing of all the negative stuff that was there before being washed away when your cleaning.
If you still think this is a spiritual/paranormal cause, new age crystals have been known to block/counter/convert negative energies, including
depression/bad mojo/bad negative energies. In a earlier post, I mention Black tourmaline to a poster. Black tourmaline has been known to help with
protection, depression, converting negative energies into good ones. You can buy these crystals online, and you should carry them wherever you go,
sorta like a trinket charm.
If its a normal cause for the depression (lost of a love one, Lost your job, etc) then it just takes looking at life differently. Frankly, Depression
is negative thoughts bombarding your brain and mind. It can be caused by a chemical imbalance in your brain. Some folks might tell you to take
anti-depression pills etc, I really don't recommend that, because in the end the pills really add to the problem.
What I do recommend if its normal depression, is to just have positive reinforcement of thoughts, when people get depressed, they do things like doubt
themselves, they put themselves down etc. You need to think of yourself as worthy, when the bad thoughts steep in your head, counter the thoughts with
opposite good thoughts. It's almost like brainwashing yourself to be positive. I know this all sounds stupid, but it works. This stuff is actually a
psychology method for positive thought process, which is cognitive behavioral therapy. Tell yourself you are great, you are worthy, tell yourself
that the things you normal stress out about, you have no control over so you need to let go.
"letting go" was the one thing that brought me out of depression. Somethings in life you just can't have control over. Somethings in life you just
have to tough out and cherish the stuff you can have control over.
Defeat the negative thoughts with positive ones. Soon one day you realize that you aren't depress anymore, that life is worth living, that instead of
spending all this time being sad, you could just enjoy the short time we have on this earth. Depression then won't have such a strong hold on you,
then you realize that it is YOU who has the power to control if you're happy or not. Be strong, God Bless and Good Luck.
