Moon Phase in Aquarius – Opening new Horizons

When the moon passes Aquarius our intuitive thoughts are heightened and we definitely should spend some time listening to what is coming through. There might be the one or other treasure hidden in the streaming of our own inner wisdom.

Independent and loyal is the Aquarius and no one will ever be able to change that. The Aquarius needs a lot of space, emotionally and physically and absolutely hates it to be caged in. He/she will never ever fit into a box, unless the box is made of an irregular shape, painted in all sorts of colours and the lid is always taken off.

This is what we also will feel once the Moon passes through Aquarius on its 28 days cycle. Our need for more personal freedom, our own space and a lot of independence is all that we will ask for. We will or will want to rebel against all that is normal or stuck because we feel that things could be done differently. During these days we might get some great ideas to deal with an ongoing problem or we discover new insights to an old issue.

Different then Aries, which just wants to break free and do their own thing, Aquarius wants to break through the barriers of social rigid rules which define our sense of normal. While Aries focuses more on its own path, Aquarius energy focuses on everybody path and its desire to change the world is deeply rooted in the belief that all beings are equally important.

We might feel during Aquarius days that we do suffer more from the collective inequality in the world than on other days. This kind of ‘feeling’ crisis maybe also holds the opportunity to actually find new ways in improving society with our own two pairs of hands. Any kind of charity works is very beneficial and absolutely right up the street of Aquarius. So doing something good for someone elses might bring  deep satisfaction to this humanitarian days.

The Moon in Aquarius days can also come across quite unpredictable and everything can happen. Be prepared for surprises and try to surrender to the exciting unknown along the route an Aquarius moon day can take you. New Horizons and a lot of interesting intellectual conversations would be a great use of this day. Pondering in ideas, visions and dreams of the coming future helps anybody who lately got stuck too much in their own reality. Share and sharing is very important and beneficial for Aquarius moon days.

Positivity and optimism as guiding light

Positivity and optimism could be seen as guiding lights on Aquarius days and we might feel that nearly everything is possible. As long as we can follow our own ideas, work in our own pace and actually just do what we want to do. Moon in Aquarius days are not really good to sign contracts, enter into commitments or follow any kind of rules. Airy and fairy that is more what it’s all about, if it then is also out of the ordinary the better it is.

by pinterest.com

Aquarius Moon Days are great days for developing or deepening friendships or even make new friends. We are open-minded and tend to be able in accepting everybody just as they are. We are not too much concerned with our own emotions unless someone would trigger our need for free self-expression. It’s definitely not a good day in seeking advice for any kind of legal decisions or to think about serious things. What has to be done, needs to be done but if you can move serious stuff to another day where you have more determination and clarity the better.

by pinterest.com

A great day to do any intellectual work, thinking about inventions or even making new inventions and find new ways in dealing with certain issues. The moon in Aquarius opens our minds and everything that is extraordinary is more than welcome to stay. A great day for new inspirations, If you need them.

Time for detachment to gain new perspectives

Me might find this day that we want to detach from everyone and everything, this can be a blessing or a curse. Understand that this feeling is only temporary rather than suddenly breaking up your relationship or quit your job. Emotionally it might can give us a bit of a break and we need that bit of a distance to connect with ourselves. Just don’t get stuck there and start isolating yourself thinking that you don’t need anyone and can do it all by yourself.

by brainpickings.com

Surround yourself with supportive people and friends, because your community spirit is very heightened these days.

Travelling via water or air is beneficial these days.

Health:

When the moon passes through Aquarius, our blood circulation can be vulnerable or weakened. Take pauses and avoid excessive sports. If you go hiking, play tennis, squash or do dancing be aware that your ankles will have a life of their own today and need extra attention.

google.com

If you already suffer from problems with your circulation and or with your ankles than this day would be a great day to give these areas extra care. Treatments and supplements that will help to increase the stability of your ankles or build up your circulation are very beneficial these days.

Avoid shopping marathons and any work that includes a lot of standing because that can end in a nightmare and give you more pain than needed.

google.com

Anything that helps your veins could be very good today and if possible don’t have any operations or surgical procedures during Moon in Aquarius on your ankles or your veins.

google.com

The days, even in summer tend to be little bit cooler than on others, so pack in the extra pair of socks, jumper or jacket, especially in the evening.

Aquarius Moon Phase are good days to give your body some extra good fats, such as Avocado, Olive Oil, any nut oils (unless you are allergic). Your body absorbs these better than on other days.

by healthynaturalliving.com

Essential oils applied to your body will be absorbed more easily and can be of great benefit. Especially if you find yourself in an over thinking mood or you are mentally burning out.

Moonphase in Capricorn – Making long term plans

Did you know that the moon does play a significant role in influencing the energies of our every day activities?

In addition to that the moon also influences the weather as well as highlights the sensitivity of certain body parts while passing through the zodiac. Dependent on the Moon phase and which Zodiac the moon passes during its approx.  28 day cycle, the areas in our bodies can be more painful but also benefit of better results with certain treatments.

by public domain

If you do things that do stretch, challenge or harm a certain part of your body while the moon passes through the zodiac and highlights their sensitivity, these body parts will suffer more than on other days.

Many people also know about the importance of the moonphase regarding appointments and surgery.

Therefore these people do plan intune with the moon calendar and relate to its wisdom for advise.

For example, on days when the Moon passes through Capricorn we should not undergo a knee or joint operation. Of course emergency operations do belong to a higher law and should not to be avoided.

by cnn.com

Living by the moon, its cycles and understanding the transition it makes through the zodiac can help us to treat illness better. It can assist in changing our diet accordingly and will help us to understand when to arrange certain activities.

Living in harmony with the universal movements like the cycle of the moon, will help in providing help, assistance and support for a better life and overall well-being.

Moon passes through Capricorn

When the moon passes through Capricorn our thinking becomes very clear and sharp. We will be less emotional and easily get things done, which we have procrastinating for far too long.

Moon in Capricorn days are great to realistically reflect on a certain project, a situation but even better to sit down and make a plan. On these days our sense for work and commitment will be highlighted and we should definitely make use of it. Everything that has to do with the law, the taxes or other legal stuff will get done on these days more easily. Or better to say you will have the patient to get these kind of things done more effortlessley.

by entrepreneur.com

It is a great day to see your accountant and get your numbers right. Any decision that we make today tend to be grounded in a solid foundation and should last. Everything that requires logic and a focused mind is brilliant to get done today.

Capricorn is a very ambitious and hard-working sign and aims for the top of the tops. If we take the approach of Capricorn seriously,  we will find ourselves walking slowly but steady. We do know and accept that we need to take one step at a time and can’t just rush to the finish line because we it feels like to.

Capricorn is of caring nature and is concerned about the benefit of others, especially the own family and friends. If you need to borrow money of someone, do it on a Capricorn in Moon day and best is to ask a Capricorn, they more than likely will give it to you. After they have checked  the details about your plan to pay it back.

Capricorns need to know and they like to be in control. Rarely you will see people having an emotional outburtst or tend to be too emotional during Capricorn in Moon days. The energy is solid, grounded and very focused, make use of it.

by youtube.com

 

It maybe is not the best day to speak about relationship problems or expect another person to be overly emotional. Not the best of days to ask for more romance in your life. Saying that, Capricorn has a very passionate side which can be brought to the surface, if he/she can get his head off work. 

Health:

The moon passes through the Zodiac in approx 28 days of time. During this period it highlights certain body parts and makes them more vulnerable. To know that you should not go hiking or skiing on a Capricorn in Moon day will safe you maybe from some serious Knee and Joint injury.

The knees and joints are very sensitive on Capricorn Moon days and we should give them a relaxing time rather than straining them too much.

by philgoughhealthandfitness.com

You should also if possible avoid any knee or joint surgery, unless its an emergency. There are far more better days to get things like that done.

Capricorn is also associated with the skin and these Moon in Capricorn days are more than beneficial to see your dermatologist if you got problems. A visit to the Beautician to treat your skin and get is cleansed will pay off, more than on any other days of the moon cycle.

by weedstream.com

Stiffness in knees or joints should be treated with movements like Tai Chi, Yoga or swimming. Arthritis can be more painful during  Moon Phase in Capricorn, but also offers a more powerful healing opportunity.

Natural remedies such as Ginger, Boswellia, Green Tea or Eucalyptus could be beneficial. But to be right sure about that its better to see a herbalist and get expert advice on that.

Good advice for the day:

Avoid any sudden or quick activities and movements. Focus on a project for which you need a long-term plan. Open a savings account, plan some financial investment, speak to your accountant or banker. Don’t go hiking or cycling. Take it easy and allow yourself to take one step at a time.

Moonphase in Pisces – when we feel too much

The moon in Pisces days are normally very relaxing and smooth going days. People will think and act far more selflessly than on other days and show more compassion. These days are an ideal to actively listen to what the other has to say without judgement and without giving that good advice. The Pisces energy is a very dreamy energy and so soft and gentle in its nature that we easily drift away into other realms. The spheres of magic, illusion and fantasy are opening their doors to all those brave enough to walk through them. We might feel our psychic abilities heightened and the longing to connect with others and life on a deeper level than the normal.

ted.com

Everything that is out there, and hard to grasp seems to be very fascinating and adorable. We wonder, what lies beyond and we are ready to find out.

These days are perfect to take some time for yourself and do some daydreaming. Different than making concrete plans like Virgos or Capricorn would do we are now into the no boundary state. We just want to play around with what is possible and not worry about all that could go wrong. Pisces in moon days hold the potential of accumulating of ideas and visions, supernatural experiences and others but definitely not good days for making long lasting commitments. Too easily we would say yes to something today that we later might regret because there are no boundaries, there is no self today. These days is all about floating along rather than getting things done.

 

Staying home with a good book, some chocolate and a nice cup of tea would be a perfect Pisces moon day. Watch a movie, have nice food and spend some quality time with your partner, you will not regret the openness and all that comes with it.

Our sensitivity is very much stimulated and we should stay away from anything that could bring us out of balance. Pisces love their peace and quiet and they need more of that than other star signs. Not clearly knowing where the path leads the Pisces moon days invite us to try new ways and experiment with what else is possible but more in our minds than in practical reality. Its not a time to make a promise nor to sign a contract or an agreement. We might experience some confusion and should put things off that would need our focus or clarity of mind.

huffingtonpost.com

Pisces in Moon days are for the dreamers and the idealist. Those who dream the world into shape when no one is watching.

These days might also shine a light on our insecurities and low self-esteem because Pisces just feel too much. They often have abundance of compassion and caring thoughts for others but for themselves they tend not to spend enough time. It is important on these days to return to ourselves with the help of spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, or swimming.

al jumuha magazine

A walk in nature, on the beach or near water is also very good and brings the influence of these days even closer into our energy field.

We will need to try to keep positive and not to get stuck in depression or the overwhelming feeling that we are unable to change the world. One step at a time would be a good advice for Pisces in moon days, so we can realisticly achieve our goals. When the moon passes through Pisces we might also in need of extra encouragement or support as subconscious feelings and thoughts might find its way to the surface. It is a great day to arrange an appointment with a therapist that can help us to find deeper layers of ourselves and how to deal with them. We are open and receptive and want to uncover all that is hidden deep within ourselves, if we can find assistance or guidance to do that this definitely would be very helpful.

Nick Kerry.com

It is a brilliant day to seek out some advice from a psychic or a healer because all these things are positive supported by the Pisces energy. Be creative, listen to music, explore the unknown and try something new. It is a great day to let yourself go, spend the day in bed or in a retreat. Let go of boundaries and experience yourself in a state of oneness with the world. Trance dance and any other kind of ecstatic expression can be very beneficial these days. Pisces in moon makes us long for more to see beyond the ordinary and let go of this earthly suffering.

shamanic trance dance.com

Pisces are also often associated with addiction and all the problems that do come with it. From Co-dependency but also the intoxication of the body and its side-effects. On pisces moon days we need to be mindful not to end up in a place where we didn’t want to be – because there are no boundaries and going with the flow is so much more fun. Drug addiction and comfort eating can be an expression of Pisces energy but also these days offer the opportunity to exactly do some great work exactly on these problems.

When the moon passes through Pisces it is very advice able not to drink or smoke too much. Because of the sensitive energy we will experience everything more intense as usual which can have fatal results.

The Pisces are ruling the feet in our physical body and we should spend extra attention to these areas during Pisces days. A nice reflexology, a foot bath or seeing a podologist is very beneficial and can bring a lot of good.

The feet are on of the most sensitive areas in the whole body even many people won’t believe that. All the meridians of the whole body are coming down to the feet where they find their final destination. This is also why reflexology is so beneficial because it can help with all the inner organs and its problems.

Pisces Moon Days are great days to find some form of creative expression like singing, drawing or painting, cooking or just listening to music. If you are gifted in writing, than get your pen and paper ready and try to write some poetry.

What ever you do today, it is important that you are gentle with yourself. Take more time for a task then normal and do it in your own pace. Don’t allow a fixed schedule or anything or pressure to interfere in your day and try to make enough time and space for yourself to retreat. An Epsom Salt bath can work wonders on Pisces moon days and helps the body to detox. Drink plenty of water and be mindful to take a good rest during the day.

discovery magazine.com

Withdraw into your own world if you want to and make space for some subconscious work. Stay away from any toxins if possible and if you do take medication or smoke, especially during Pisces Moon days it would be beneficial to reduce the daily intake because everything has a bigger impact or influence today.

Try to take it easy, if you are emotional than allow your emotions to come and go. Don’t force or overthink too much as these days lead to heightened sensitivity and it can happen that we feel more than we normally do. It also indicates that we might feel more of what others go through and can easily mix it up thinking it would be our own feelings.

Moonphase in Virgo – Let’s get this right

The moon takes around 27.3 days to circle around the earth, but because earth and moon are spinning together at different speeds around the sun, it actually takes the moon 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 28 seconds to complete one orbit of the earth, from new moon to new moon.

google.com

During this cycle the moon passes through each sign of the zodiac, normally the moon stays in one sign for about 2 days sometimes its 3. It is been said that the moon rules our emotions as well as the everyday activities, it influences the weather and brings good and bad fortune to the gardener. By following and knowing about the moon cycles we gain a lot of insights and understanding about ourselves but also access the unlimited potential of the moon.

If we harmonize ourselves with the moon cycle and its passing through the zodiac we are able to gain a lot of information. These information can be used to make plans and to find out when to do what. It can assist us in understanding which daily influence is good for our actions, but also why we might feel the way we feel.

by moonearthsky.org

When the moon passes through Virgo our perfectionism is most definitely highlighted which can be good for some and bad for others. Dependent on how perfectionism is present in your life these days as it can be a challenge to suddenly be aware of all that needs to be fixed or improved. Furthermore we will very much likely focus on things that seem to be not in the right place, our senses for health are very much heightened. There is not much space for emotional understanding and everything will be analysed till the perfect solution is finally found.

by invigoratedsolutions.wordpress.com

This can be of good influence if there are areas in our life that do need improvement or a tidy up, the moon in Virgo will help you with that. On the other side these days can also lead to a lot of criticism and judgements so it is important for us to be gentle with ourselves. The Virgo wants it perfect and neat, tidy and properly done no messing about and no excuses.

Virgo is a very analytical sign and it easily get caught up in over thinking, problems appear bigger than they are and it is not very useful today to tell other people about your opinion. On moon in Virgo days it is definitely better to keep our mouth shut and try to control our thoughts with meditation. If our mind is to be left alone it might end up in over discriminating and exacting things.

by urbanhealthgroup.ca

These days are really not good for anything that includes any pleasure unless it is combined with a health aspect.

Health:

During the moon phase in Virgo days we might can feel some stomach issues. Avoiding too much sugar, too spicy and fatty foods is the best thing to do. Fasting can be very beneficial these days in combination of a good rest or a long nap.

by netdoctor.com

Virgo Moon Days are good days to eat any type of root vegetable and anything that comes from the earth. Nettle tea can be very good for cleansing the inner organs. Why not try some fennel tea if you have an upset tummy.

by google.com

A bath in magnesium or sea salt can help you to release toxins from your body. A good day to finally try that mud face mask out or go for a shiatsu massage to unwind the belly.

by castlebaths.com

If you want to be productive on this day that we would recommend that you take some time to clean your house, get rid of the clutter that has been accumulating. Arrange important health appointments which you have been putting off. Go for a walk in nature and connect with the earth can bring your system back into balance.

by ehealth.eletsonline.com

Do what you have to do this could be the right attitude for today. We won’t be able to do it all today and that is totally fine. We don’t always need to be in high performance to achieve a goal, sometimes it is just the slow and the steady pace that let us reach our goals. Get your paperwork in order, read through contracts and find the details you overlooked the other day and get your finances right.

by public domain

Calculating and analyzing is the best way forward. Intellectually and mentally we are really strong today and should use this for our advantages. As long as we are not asked to think and work creatively because that is not what the energy provides for us today.

Everything has its order and its place, we will be very conscious about this these days. A longing for security, control and safety is very present these days and can make us a bit weary. These are not good days for taking risks or to explore the unknown.

psych.ox.ac.uk

If you need to get a realistic valuation done for any of your health issues or even your property, than Virgo days are really good for that.

Stay away from the need to solve any kind of relationship issues. You more than likely end up in more conflict and not having much sympathy for anybody you doesn’t have the same thoughts as you. Rather than pointing out again and again what is wrong with the other person today we been asked to take a step back and watch the drama from a distance.

by caringminds.co.in

Today – take it easy. Make a list with stuff that needs improvement or fixing. Make that phone call with your dentist or doctor. Sign that contract with the gym or make yourself a more healthy routine including nourishing yourself with healthy food and regular exercise and stick to it.

by fitness19.com

Do your duty and what you have to do – the rest of the day spend time in clearing out or plant new seeds for your garden. This is the time to think about new projects and get all the bullet points and plan of action together but not actually starting the new.

Our Emotions the Gateway to Power – Nina Bains

The pain we experience is from our emotional baggage we carry from childhood issues and into adulthood such as abuse or any other emotional trauma. These energies stay with us in our subconscious mind and disrupt our lives and cause disease and much of our self-sabotage.

Unprocessed life experiences held in our nervous systems is affecting our bodies. Humans are scared and spiritual beings and we hold power within, once we are connected with our emotions. I am convinced with my own healing journey that our trapped emotions and traumas manifest symptoms and disease in our bodies. Our emotions can set us free from all the layers of baggage that we are holding in our subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is the storage house for everything that has happened in our lives on an emotional level. When something happens, we have supressed the emotion within the event and buried it in our subconscious mind. When we come across a circumstance and interact within the environment and the buried emotion gets triggered and we react. We suppress our immune system with emotions of the past and this also causes our bodies to become emotionally unbalanced. If only we learned to feel that emotion and release and be free from the pain it is causing our body.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the situation at hand and then get triggered by the emotion that was never healed and it continues to run our lives in the present. Our thoughts and emotions create health problems and then disease in our bodies. How we emotionally feel can manifest symptoms such as our heart rate to increase and anxiety and depression and our stomachs to act up. The emotions are stored in the body and since they are buried in the subconscious mind they are still running our lives in the present moment.

Some tools or skills we can implement into our daily lives to remain healthy on an emotional level.

1. Start by learning to connect with your emotions by breathing into your body by taking a few deep breaths. This is to slow down your heart and you can learn to listen to what your body has to tell you.
2. Scan your body and relax and observe what you are feeling. Many emotions will come up such as fear, anger and frustration.
3. Once a feeling comes up ask yourself several questions. What is the feeling? What is causing this feeling? Where did I learn to feel this way?
4. Start connecting your feelings to patterns and behaviours in your life. Many of us have buried our feelings so deep we have forgotten how to feel them and learn to release them. We have learned to listen to the negative inner dialogue that is keeping us stuck emotionally.
5. As you make these connections in your daily life you will become more and clearer, where and how you buried your emotions. Once these connections are made the healing process will become so much easier. For many of us its past beliefs from childhood that have kept us stuck emotionally and paralyzed us from moving forward.
Life is all about how we choose to respond. We can respond in a negative way or a positive way our bodies react to both. If we can learn to embrace the stressors in our lives with gratitude things can shift and we can discover meaning in our lives. It’s all about how you respond from within. If you respond from the heart without ego and judgement your life can be totally transformed. You’re emotional and physically health is within your power and you have what it takes to heal.

You attract who you are all by the power of your emotional energy. If we can manage our emotions we have the power to change our weight, job and make more money and in return this creates more abundance in your life. If we can only learn to surrender to our emotions and live from within. This power is available to all, we just have to learn how to tune in and manage our emotional health and everything else will start falling in place.

Why Anti-Depressants kill your soul by Julie Jurgan

Did you know that over 61 million Antidepressants outside of hospitals have been described alone in the UK in 2015?

(The Guardian July 2016)

More and more people seem to follow the mainstream opinion of taking chemical drugs to deal with depressions, anxiety and panic attacks. Without knowing what they really do to themselves and their soul. People need and want a quick solution for their discomfort and even doctors are not really helpful in pointing out the source of depressions to their patients. I truly believe if we come to understand what kind of depression we are suffering from and take a realistic view on what is wrong with the world, we will come to understand that depressions are mostly not-self made. Furthermore the most of diagnosed depressions do occur as a result of an outside influence we suffer from and feel we have no control of or a lack of power to change it.

Knowing the reason, its source we may come into a better understanding of ourselves and what it means to be depressive. But even most important we will understand that depression is not a condition that we need to live with as we can make certain steps towards its release. We also need to come to see that taking anti-depressant doesn’t solve the problem it only helps in coping.

The question now is, do we want to cope with life or do we want to live it? How much of our control do we want to hand out to others and where can we take our own responsibility? Antidepressant have major side-effects and apart from that they turn you into an emotional disconnected being. If we really want to work with depression we need to dive deep into the ocean of understanding of the self and make necessary adjustments. Honesty and authenticity are the key elements to find the source of depression and suffering.

Most important is that we do understand that our soul is the most trustworthy guide in our lives, telling us when something is right or wrong. Taking anti-depressant will take that natural guide away and will take you even deeper into nowhere land. A place that couldn’t be any further from your true self.

The easiest way to be reborn is to live and feel life everyday”

Social Expectation Depression

A very interesting expression of a phenomena and I truly believe that 90% of people who have been diagnosed with depression suffer from. It means that we are depressed because we feel that we don’t fit into society. Furthermore it means that we suffer because we can’t reach social expectations that have been put upon us.

These kind of depressions are a natural outcome of influence of mainstream media into our lives. These media especially TV creates an illusion of how the “good life” should look like. In addition to that happiness is the ultimate goal. Once we realized that we will never look like the people on TV or magazines, we will never be able to be happy all the time and we truly believe that possessions are what we really need to be happy – we will suffer tremendously.

The feeling of abandonment, unworthiness, self-doubts will find its way into our lives and feeds on all the illusionary ideas that are shown on TV. The increasing use of smart phones and social media doesn’t help with that. Of course we can be in touch with someone in seconds, but we can’t touch them. Means we lose our ability to be with people, to be touched by people and furthermore to really connect with people. We fear the opinion of others, our own vulnerability and boundaries.

We forget how to make time for ourselves as there is always someone reaching out to us or telling us what’s going on at the moment. Looking at Facebook and other social media we start comparing our lives with the lives of others. There is no more space that we allow ourselves to stay in – thinking and feeling that we miss out on something.

The best advice and the most important step for this kind of depression is, to cut back on watching TV and overwhelming yourself with social media and other distractions. Learn to meditate and come into the space within yourself. You will need to learn to work with your soul and have an honest look upon yourself. You have to learn to be with yourself and enjoy your own company only so you will get to know yourself better. The buddhist Metta Meditation ( try here) can be very helpful in terms of increasing self-love.

 

Work Pressure Depression

In the workplace that indicates a job we don’t like and just do because of the money. Maybe out of fear or doubts that we never ever will be able to do a job we love doing and make money with it.

In addition to that these kind of depressions are also created by our working ethics against our inner clock. Our over productive society has created a climax that is more than unnatural for our well-being. We spend too much time indoors, eat just on the go and spend more than 70% our wake-life at our workplace to cover our survival costs. We work as much in summer as we do in winter and in a full-time employment we get about 5 or 6 weeks holidays a year.

depressedHour after hour we stare into computers, take one job load after the next, try to deal with sickness of colleagues and more time pressure at work. It’s up to us to cope with the consequences of staff reduction at work, the increasing of deadlines and the constantly growing amount of pressure.

Not that this would be enough, we also hear about the changes in the big wide world, how they might affect our job security or our future lives.

No wonder you are fed up, tired, overwhelmed and stressed out. How should any normal human being deal with all these things? Especially things that lay outside of our control, things that we have no influence on.

So how can you deal with all this? Antidepressant may help you to stay were you are but they won’t make you happy. They will assist you in staying in a discomfort situation rather than changing it. You will need to face reality and realize that you might working in the wrong job, that you are overworked or you feel not appreciated.

If this is the case, first of all speak with someone about it. Someone you would definitely support your decision whatever that may be, someone who encourages you to do what feels right for you. You might want to seek a chat with your manager as well and let him/her know how you feeling at the moment. That might lead to less work pressure at least for a short period of time. At the end you will need to face the situation and might think about going self-employed or change jobs.

Yes that can be scary and very challenging at the beginning but you will need to develop inner strength to work through it. Speak to your local job centre you might get some support, reach out for some empowerment healing from an alternative healer or might seek some advice from a counselor.

Keep in mind that change is a necessary part of life and we mostly suffer because we deny the fact that we need to change too. You might want to develop a spiritual practice, go to yoga and meditation classes to learn to let go of your fears and doubts. Furthermore to feel the flow of life rushing through you and gain back your flexibility. Trust me, little steps of change make a huge difference and suddenly everything falls into place.

But you will need to overcome your need to control things and learn to let go of the illusion that life is only safe if we stay in the job we have.

Loss Depression

The loss Depression is one of the profoundest we can experience because they are somehow unchangeable. We might be able to change our jobs, leave our partners and remove ourselves from unpleasant situations. But we won’t be able to bring back a loved one who passed. The pain we experience through the grieving process is absolutely massive and can really bring us to the ground. Even years after the passing we can still find ourselves crumbling, crying and feeling so deeply hurt when we touch that empty space within our hearts. There is no remedy for a heart that suffers from a loss of a loved one.

Thoughts of not being able to go on, to cope with all that lies in front of us and the emptiness we drown deep into the valley of depression and hopelessness. Some of us may even experience suicidal tendencies themselves especially during the first few months. Everything is so raw, so open, so vulnerable.

Once again our heart has been cracked open and it hurts.

walk-alone

Some people might argue that anti-depressant would be a solution at least for the first few months but to be honest. No, I don’t think so. Antidepressant maybe make you feel that there would be no pain and that is an illusion. The pain will be there no matter what you do, suppressing it is not a solution. Especially help with pharmaceutical drugs is no solution at all. Furthermore it is very important to feel the pain and do whatever is important for you in this moment. Withdraw from the world if you want to, hide, cry, shout, be angry but let it out. Surround yourself with supportive friends and other loved ones but give yourself time. You don’t need to open up if you don’t want to. There are grieving telephone lines available such as the Samaritans (look here) which offer an open ear and support anonymously. You might also want to join a grieving group or take upon a task that helps you to express your loss. For this reason Art Therapy or writing a diary can be very helpful, but also dancing can be an embodiment for your pain.

Make sure that you nourish yourself during these periods of grieving, get a massage, have a hot bath, go for walks and do whatever you feel like doing.

Traumatic Experience Depressions

These kind of depressions mostly come from a past event we have experienced. A trauma we had to go trough and we are unable to release. This kind of depression mostly is chronic and will occur over a very long period of time, it can also be experienced in intervals. A traumatic experience depression definitely will need therapeutic assistance to be worked with. Antidepressant in this case will only suppress the symptoms but will never help to release its source, furthermore it will give the patient the feeling that he has to deal with this the whole of his/her life. There are other empowering alternative healing strategies available such as holistic therapies which can help to reduce the physical expression and do its best to release the symptoms on a material/physical level. A shamanic soul retrieval or shamanic healing can help to release the trauma from the persons energetic body and also assist the soul to heal itself.

But don’t get stuck in the thought that life has been tough on you and its never ever going to change. You will need to work yourself through the trauma and its expressions, the pain, the anger, the helplessness. A trauma might have changed you, but working with it can also transform you and turn a traumatic experience into a healing work. Sometimes we are confronted with certain situations not only that we gain strength from it once we overcame them but also to offer other people help and guidance with similar experiences.

There is always something to gain from any situation no matter how painful it was or is. Don’t give up on yourself and open up to outside help and support.

 

Existential Depression

1a430fe973e38cf30174eb8eeb55c086This form of depression will feel everyone at one point in their lives and might be a summary of all of the above. It expresses itself in the hopelessness and helplessness of being a human placed on this earth. Confronted with our own mortality, through the loss of a loved one or other experiences to do with death, the question why we need to work for our survival, why we are the way we are and furthermore we question our purpose or meaning of life.

Normally these are quite normal expression and can be counted to a necessary feelings to deepen our connection with life. We can’t only live in happiness and pretend that we don’t have meaningful questions pressuring our hearts. We can’t deny the fact that life sometimes gives us a hard time and we do question ourselves or fear our own mortality. These days, sometimes maybe weeks of existential depression helps us to transform ourselves and reach a new level spiritually. Of course these times can be very intense in its feelings but normally we should be able to work through and know that we will come out at the other side of the tunnel with a different point of view on things.

Normally we try to suppress these times of discomfort with eating, drinking or other activities that distract us. But we can also use these times as powerful chances to grow into our own and reach a new level of understanding and inner strength.

If you want to learn to understand yourself and the course of time better I can recommend watching favourite Astrologer Kaypacha (see more). Every week he explains the influences of astrology upon us and our moods, feelings and expressions. He offers great advice and better understanding for temporary influences and helps to connect the soul on a bigger picture.
I hope I could help a bit in understanding and working with depression and shine a light on alternative routes to deal with that important subject. Let us not come from Depression into Suppression but into Expression and Embodiment.

My pain strengthens my awareness.

My doubts remind me on my shared humanity.

My fears show me how to become stronger and my desperation teaches me about my vulnerability.

Now I know that I need to walk through the valley of hopelessness to allow my soul to guide me.

As this is the instant connection to the flow of life and the energy of the universe.

Sensitive Souls – Dr. Dan L. Edmunds

There were those who began as sensitive souls.

Such could be a blessing and a curse. They felt everything deeply but it caused them great fear. This overwhelming anxiety was quelled by a substance. The results were initially amazing and thus the sensitive soul continued to indulge.

pic by drugabuse.com

Their misguided idealism now became shattered expectations and loss of any sense of hope. The fears intensified. If they were working, they were afraid. If they were not working, they were afraid. If they were in a relationship they were afraid of losing themselves. If they were not in a relationship they feared being alone. And though at times there may have been many around they remained alone in the tumult of their thoughts. They saw no purpose and some began to seek it in a distant realm falsely believing it would be found.

But purpose is not found but created and it is not in expectations or grand feats but in simplicity. A simple smile, a kind gesture. Here the sensitive soul can turn the curse to blessing and such sensitivity can move from absorbing pain and focus on self to a concern for the other and a sharing in their experience.

As one comes to find a connection to others and a connection to virtue, they find a greater understanding and much becomes revealed. They may ask for the removal of their faults but realize such is not a magical incantation or demand but requires action.

Voices of the Wilderness – Dr. Dan L. Edmunds

Those who are called ‘mentally ill’ or ‘mad’ are the voices in the wilderness, the ones who point to the distress of society, the ones who convict it of its crimes. By their ‘strange’ appearance and parting from the ‘norms’, they challenge and reveal that humanity is not free.

pic by meetup.com

They reveal that what is normal is but an accepted madness of the majority. Wars, conflicts, social injustice, abused children, all are accepted by the madness of the majority. But the one who dreams awake, that voice crying from the wilderness, sees something different.

The eyes of perception are awakened, and a door to a new existence is opened. Yet the opening of this door is a frightful experience, for it unleashes all that which is the human condition, every experience, every vision, the collective realm of human beings. If there is any illness, it is not with the ‘madman’, it is the society that is ill.

And this society has driven the ‘mad’ to that barren place, to that desert. As the prophets of old were rejected by their own, the voice and message of the ‘mad’ is often misunderstood and unheard by those around.

Pain is not avoided – Dr. Dan L. Edmunds

When there became the dependence it was then emotional growth was halted. The repression and internalization and numbing of feelings and emotions became as a festering abscess to later only burst forth with great intensity. One becomes spiritually septic, the spirit is completely broken.

pic by drugcampuses.com

In the beginning one sees freedom without responsibility, relationships without commitment, something for nothing, a false sense of relief without any concern for relieving others.
In the middle, sensitivity turns from blessing to curse and the attempt to avoid pain becomes an even more intense pain.
Fear overwhelms and thought after thought whirls through the mind.
Life becomes an endless chore. One does not embrace life but avoids it. One loses sight of their true nature and potential. Ones personality and character is altered to the unimaginable.
In the end, dependence becomes transcendence.

pic by therapytribe.com

Relationship becomes a sharing of experience, a communion and fellowship with others. Sensitivity becomes the blessing of empathy. Repression of feelings becomes an open communication with another.

Pain is not avoided. One journeys with, embraces joy, suffers with, and is one in being and spirit with the other.

Barley Grass Powder – The Super Green Nutrition (watch)

Barley Grass Powder is an amazing natural supplement that will support your body with minerals that are hard to gain from a normal modern diet. It is made of the dried young leaves of the barley plant. In Eurasia this plant has been used for over 13000 years already.

Barley Grass Powder is been said to have 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than there is in milk, 6.5 times as much carotene and nearly 5 times the iron content of spinach, close to seven times the vitamin C in oranges, four times the vitamin B1 in whole wheat flour, and 80 micrograms of vitamin B12 per 100 grams of dried barley plant juice.

Barley grass is very high in organic sodium, which dissolves calcium deposited on the joints and also replenishes organic sodium in the lining of the stomach. This aids digestion by improving the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. People with arthritis have used celery juice for years because of the organic sodium it contains (28mg per 100grms), but compare this to the amount of organic sodium in barley grass (775mg per 100 grams)!
