Why distant healing works and is more powerful than you think

Over the years there have been many names given to the phenomena of distant healing, such as energy healing, aura healing, shamanic healing, spiritual healing intercessory prayer, energy psychology, remote healing, non-local healing. It is truly a fascinating subject which sometimes can just go over our heads because it is hard to comprehend. Distant healing is a well established faculty and term in spiritual circles. Over the years even science showed its interest in distant healing phenomena and came up with some astonishing proof.

This new understanding on the power of distant healing will add some great value to our approach on healing body, mind and spirit. But it also opens our horizons for something that has always been around but we somehow forgotten about – the ability to actively influence energy.

For more then fifty thousand years shamans and other native healers knew about the abilities of being able to heal others, not only 1:1 but also via distant. They practised this form of healing

Next to their knowledge about plants and other herb medicines. They never doubted the power and usefulness of their healing practice.

If we do some more research in other cultures and religions we will find that the use of spiritual healing and its incredible results are recorded throughout history.

Find out for yourself

But we don’t need to be spiritual nor do we need to be religious to gain real proof of spiritual healing or distant healing experiences. Furthermore why not try a simple technique that Arthur Powell mentioned in his book ‘The Mental Body’ and see the results for yourself.

A strong wish for a friends good, sent to him as general protection agency will remain about him as a thought form for a time proportional to the strength of the thought, and will guard him against evil, acting as a barrier against hostile thoughts, and even warding of physical dangers. A thought of peace and consolation similarly sent will soothe and calm the mind, spreading around its object an atmosphere of calm.”

So why not send some loving thoughts to a friend or family member and find out how his situation or his feelings have changed by you doing that. The result will surprise you and I dare to say that you will try to convince yourself it was only coincidence and not your thoughts who made all the difference. At the early stages it is difficult to allow our minds to comprehend our full potential, nothing less please just give it a try for yourself.

More and more scientist are convinced that they have found the missing ling that would explain how spiritual healing or remote healing works. The answer we seeking for is hidden in the world of quantum physics lets explore this world a little bit deeper.

1. Quantum and remote healing how it actually works

To keep a complicated subject easy, its enough to know that: Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter.” (http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/quantum 2018)

Scientist do believe that everything is made of quantum particles and that these quantum particles can actually be influenced and change their physical behaviour/states dependent on how the method they are influenced by. In many experiments they found out that it is actually possible to influence matter only with our thoughts and also to transfer thoughts to another person via distance. Which is quite a powerful faculty if it is properly trained. You might experienced something like that in your life before, when you thought of someone and suddenly the phone rang and it was actually the person you thought of. This is not coincidence and unfortunately no kind of mysticism but real physics and does work.

In 1920 Arthur E. Powell published a book “The mental body” in which he states: “If a person thinks strongly of a form in the physical brain he makes the form in etheric (Subatomic or quantum) matter in the effort of making the image he also sends out etheric waves in energy in every direction.” Here we can see that even back then people were aware on how powerful our thoughts can be.

Bruce Lipton Ph. D. a former cell biologist and professor at the National Institute of Health states in an interview very interesting how spiritual healing works on a cellular level.

When energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other it is called Entanglement….when one of the healers cells vibrates higher than the clients cells it becomes entangled, and the energy is lifted…”

This is a very profound and basic concept of the understanding in Quantum Physics. So Bruce Lipton says that the energy of one person can influence the energy of another person just by meeting each other. Or if we look at the statement above from Mr. Powell, that we can create powerful energy via thought transference.

The Persian physician Avicenna who is been said to have been one of the most significant physicians, astronomers, thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age. Often was described as the father of early modern medicine stated, “The imagination of man can act not only on his own body but even on others and very distant bodies. It can fascinate and modify them, make them ill, or restore them to health.”

If we now look a little bit deeper into the understanding of quantum physics and its expression in distant healing we come across the term of non-locality. Dr. Larry Dossey speaks about this phenomena regarding Distant Mental effect in his book “Recovering the Soul”. In 1989 he created the concept of the non – local mind by stating:

 

“According to this concept, as we have seen throughout this book, consciousness cannot be completely localized or confined to specific points in space, such as brains or bodies, or to discrete points in time, such as the present moment.”

 

Wow, that is amazing, isn’t it? I mean, we have the scientist talking about quantum, we have others who speak about the power of thoughts. Then we have doctors and biologists who truly believe that we are able to transfer energy over a distance because thoughts can travel and consciousness doesn’t have the limitations of space and time. This is truly powerful and we can see all that which shamans and native healers knew already fifty thousand years ago, we are now able to have a proper scientific explanation.

How my distant healing & healing practice works

Even this new knowledge is absolutely fascinating I still have to say that the faculty of distant healing or remote healing needs to be trained properly. This is not only to make it more powerful and work properly but also that we understand the responsibilities and limitations that do come with it. It is very important to receive good and valuable training from a teacher to explore the possibilities of any healing but also to cultivate the faculty of distance healing.

Over the years I really had some amazing experiences in my healing practice that left myself stunned and surprised as well. Even I do know that spiritual healing, shamanic healing, energy healing and distance healing works, its power still amazes me. Furthermore the results and the healing progress of my clients make my work as a medium and healer so valuable.

On the other hand I also have seen quite the opposite when people start out being a medium and healer without even clearly knowing what they do. This can cause problems and more harm than good. I have created my own system in my healing practice which I follow with every client that contacts me to make sure that the healing can go ahead.

1. I speak to my clients before I arrange a healing session

It is very important to me to speak to any of my clients before I arrange a healing appointment with them. Only in this case I can find out if the energy of the client and my energy as a healer are in tune with each other. It also offers the opportunity to explain how I work and what to expect from a healing.

2. I don’t do any healing if the client is not committed

The healing progress can only take place if the clients is really committed to healing if that is not the case it is a waste of energy and time on both sides. This commitment can express itself in different situations such as sticking to the arranged appointment, paying on time for the session and following the advice that might be given after the session. A healing session/distant healing session takes a lot of preparation for the healer, the client should be aware of this too.

3. Distant Healing or other Healing Session don’t replace  seeing a doctor

Even distant healing or shamanic energy healing is very powerful and can really change your life, it is only complimentary. That means that you will still need to see a doctor if your health problems do require that. But a healing session will assist you to find deeper understanding of your issues as well as it will help you to activate your self-healing abilities.

4. You can’t be healed against your will and I will not heal anyone who doesn’t request it

This is very important to understand, because I frequently get emails and messages from people asking if I could do healing for this or that person. As much as I do understand that we do want to help someone in need, I will not and can’t interfere in someone else karma. People need to be open for healing if not, it goes against the morals and ethics I work with in my practice. I like to quote a statment from Arthur E. Powell from his book ‘The mental body’:

“Care must be taken not to control the patients will in any way. It is entirely wrong in principle for a man to try impose his will on another, even in order to make him do right. True growth is not helped by external coercion; the intelligence must be convinced, the emotions aroused and purified, before gain is made.”

Why not book your distant healing session  now and see how things will change?

My work as medium and healer is always based on the highest- good intentions for my clients. I am very committed to the standard of my work a follow a strict concept of morals and ethics.

What to expect from February 2018 in Chinese Astrology

When the wood-tiger meets the earth-dog

The water-ox retires and with him the fire-rooster. So we are not only at the beginning of a new month but also at the beginning of a new year. The earth-dog wishes us a “Happy New Year” and takes up his reign on 03 February 2018, 21:28h GMT. With him he brings one of his allies, the wood-tiger, that will rule over the first month.


The tiger is a courageous, powerful, bold and highly vigorous creature that loves challenges. He is prepared to take risks and does not like to be held back neither by rules others have made nor by any kind of convention. This can make the tiger quite impulsive or even rebellious. He wants to be free to do as he pleases and act as he chooses. At least once during his life he will throw caution to the wind and go off and do the things he wants to do.


He is honest, courageous and
often a source of inspiration to others, he is very charismatic and has his own point of view on matters. Equipped with a strong will and determination he sets out to reach his goal proceeding very energetically. His enthusiasm with which he does what has to be done is clearly visible.
He can be patient as well as he can be spontaneous. While watching and observing what he might want we can admire him for his cautious endurance. But when he knows what he wants, all of the sudden he jumps in, completely committing himself to having it, wasting no thoughts on possible consequences.


The tiger has a restless nature which includes an adventurous mind. This makes him a busy bee that does not stay in the same place for long. His enthusiasm with which he starts a project can soon deteriorate if something comes up that is more appealing. The tiger could be more successful if he would think things through thoroughly before he takes action.

The wood-tiger in particular is of a pleasant and friendly nature. His good sense of humour is something we can all enjoy. Not being as independent as his ‘cousins’ it is a pleasure to work side by side with him. However, his restless nature gets him easily distracted.
He is very popular and can enjoys the company of a large number of friends. They all keep him busy and see to it that even is social life is never boring.



In times when both, tiger and dog, rule over us we should spend as much time as possible with those who are dear to us. Shared trips, shared pursuits lead to shared pleasure. When new opportunities present themselves we should be quick to take them. Most of the time we can really benefit from what comes up at short notice. If we are able to keep our private life and our work in balance we will be on the winning side of the month that is ruled by two allies.

Time to find out what the signs of the zodiac are going to encounter when dog and tiger are in charge:

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
You
can really draw on unlimited resources. There will only be little what cannot be achieved. In private life as well as in business life all signs point to success and letting visions become reality. Keep yourself from overspending.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
G
et your share of the big cake. But to be cautious at all times and make sure not to act
recklessly. The tiger’s explosive nature can have such effect on the rabbit’s peaceful nature. Let your friend, the dog, guide you.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
The month will come up with a lot of activities, changes, volatile relationships. Keep your life balanced between fun, social events, new opportunities and worries, anger about plans obstructed by others, or any stressful situation.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
You won’t be able to pull all the strings, most of the time difficulties and calamities may result from the actions of others. It is utterly important to know who you can trust. Do not start anything without a plan B.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Hard work really pays off. Keeping a low profile is definitely not what is called for this month. Your allies, the tiger and the dog, can support you best when and where others can see you. You are definitely on the sunny side of the month.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Enjoy your journeys wherever they may take you. There will be a lot of movement, there will be a lot of moving experiences. Be focused and disciplined and have a realistic view on matters. Watch out or the new month will become more expensive than it should.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Being safe is still better than being sorry. Who is in a hurry should make a detour. It helps to economise your own strength. Keep a low profile as long as your opponent, the tiger, rules the month.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Exciting changes may happen. It is up to you to appreciate them as ‘good’ or curse them as ‘bad’. Think before you act. Making the wrong move is only one way of asking for trouble. Sobriety and inner peace make all the difference.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018):
The omens are favourable, all signs point to success. Tailwinds give you the right momentum to accomplish many things successfully. No sweet without sweat, mind you. But it’ll be worth it.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Exciting times are forseen, some may be challenging, some enthralling. New opportunities lead to advancement, locally and further afield. Do not overspend and be very cautious in all financial matters.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Some events might be irritating or confusing for you. If “Plan A” does not work . . the alphabet has many more letters to offer. Practise the secret art of common sense, choke back your anger and the month will be on your side.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
The
month will be very rich in variety. Being prepared will not prevent things from happening, it will help you getting the most out of things that happen. Feel and obey the obligation to keep your balance. If you manage you can have a promising time.

As usual, we all should keep in mind that there are a few days on which we should not do important things.

When it comes to long-ranged projects they should not be started on 05 February 2018, not on 17 February 2018 and not on 01 March 2018. Regarding short-ranged projects we have to step back on 09 February 2018 and on 21 February 2018.

May we act in time, may we find the right balance in everything.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calendar. With a satisfying accuracy we can say that all years start on 04 February. This means that e.g. a person born on 31 January 1983 is born in the year of the dog as the year of the pig starts on 04 February 1983. In consultations I certainly work with the exact dates and times.

How to find the right medium/psychic?

I have been a medium and healer myself for quite a few years now and I really do love my work. The best thing in my work is that I am able to assist and guide people with my psychic abilities and my spiritual knowledge. It is really rewarding to see how peoples lives have changed after a Reading or a Healing Session.

Not one day is the same and so are not any of my clients are the same, they come to me with different concerns, issues and problems. Unfortunately I also hear again and again about other people working in the psychic/medium field and they do more harm than good. This gives the work of a genuine medium/psychic or healer a really bad name and degrades our honest and hard work to a very low level.

I do believe the problem in the work as a medium/psychic is that there are no standards as such which qualify you as a good or bad medium/psychic. Everyone can call themselves a medium or psychic without even having enough experience, qualifications or done the work on themselves.

Over the years I was lucky enough to work with and learn from some very great mediums. People who have been in the field for many years and also who are working to a very high standard. I have seen them working on platform and also in One-to-One Sessions as well as their courses and workshops when I was their translator. During those times I did learn a lot about what it means to be a good medium/psychic and a lot about myself. I also had a lot of readings from all sorts of mediums/psychics some of them are very well-known and some of the readings were really disappointing and a total waste of time and money.

If I had known what I know now, it would have saved me a lot of bad advice, a lot of time as well as a lot of money.

Based on my personal years of experience working as medium/psychic and healer I created this guide for you. It will highlight a few points that you should ask yourself before looking for a medium or psychic. Other points can help you to check if you found the right medium/psychic for you, so you get most out of your reading.

Questions to ask yourself before you start looking for a medium/psychic:

Ask yourself honestly, why you want to see a medium or psychic? What is your motivation? Are you just curious or you experiencing a crisis in your life and you want some further advice? You might have lost a loved one and you know that some mediums are able to give proof of survival after death, which can be very reassuring.

The answer to the above questions will lead you closer to what you are looking for. If you experience a difficult situation in your life and want some advice of course you can go and see a psychic.
Psychics are more focused on working with your energy, the energy of your soul or akashic records.

A spiritual medium in its classic sense, delivers proof for life after death rather than focusing too much on your personal energy in that present moment. The focus of spiritualist mediums is to give evidence of your loved one from the spiritual world and then to bring you a message (in churches) that would assist you on your way.

Unfortunately many people or even working mediums/psychics are not aware of the difference between mediumship and psychic work. This is often caused due the lack of qualification and standard in their work and dependent on the teachers they have learnt from.

Working on a psychic level is a totally different energy than working on a mediumistic level, but both of them are equally important or worth.

There are mediums who will ask why you contacted them and its okay to say that you have a certain problem or question (but don’t name the problem or question) that is the mediums/psychic job to find out. But say it might has to do with your life or you are in need to speak to someone who has passed over into the spiritual world.

Do you want to see a medium/psychic in person or would you be okay to do a Skype session?

Many people do prefer to see a medium or psychic in person rather than a Skype session and there is nothing wrong with that. But our modern technology offers some amazing opportunities we should not miss out.

In general for the medium it doesn’t matter if you sit in front of them in real life or on the other side of a computer screen. Energy doesn’t have any limitations nor boundaries and a reading can be as good as in when you meet in person. I do a lot of Skype readings for people all over the world but also in person and never felt that it wouldn’t work better the one way or the other.

Furthermore I do believe that if we only focus on a medium who lives close by we do limit ourselves and our opportunities to find the right medium for us. There is maybe a medium in Australia you really feel drawn to but you are based in Germany, so why not try a Skype session?

There are also areas around the world where there maybe not many mediums around, especially in some countries where mediums not really common. It doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself rather than opening up to new opportunities.

Hunting for the right medium/psychic

So here we go, you clarified what you expect from a reading if you are looking for a reading about yourself which is then psychic (Life Reading, Akashic Records Reading, Psychic Reading, Soul Reading).

Or you are looking to gain some proof for life after death and needed to hear from a loved one in the spirit world that would be a mediumistic reading. Now you can go out and look for the right medium for you.

1. Ask your friends for recommendations

Best and easiest way is to ask your friends if anybody has ever been to a medium/psychic and could recommend someone. Recommendations are direct experiences and always good to start with. But keeping in mind that not every medium/psychic resonates with the same person. It might was good for your friend but you think it is not the right medium/psychic for you. Trust that feeling and keep on looking.

2. Check the mediums/psychic website

Its important to do some research and best for that is online. You can use google for the start and type in medium/psychic whether in your area or somewhere else. Check out the websites you find and see if it resonates with you.

a) Does the mediums/psychics picture appeal to you?

b) Are there any testimonials or reviews on the website?

c) Does the medium/psychic explain the way it works or does it only talk about

itself and how great he/she is?

d) Are there any contact details to get in touch with the medium/psychic before

booking a reading?

e) Does the way the medium/psychic present itself resonate with you? Or is it

too spaced out?

3. Check the pricing

Often the websites don’t give away a lot of information on the pricing and that is totally fine. It often can mean that the medium/psychic only works with committed people who actually make the effort to contact them.
Or the medium/psychic wants to decide if she/he can work with you after speaking to you. It allows time to get to know each other before a session gets booked.

Unfortunately there is no real guidelines with the pricing, some really expensive mediums are totally crap and some others very good mediums don’t charge a lot. So you can’t say that expensive is always good or cheap is always bad.

Most of the well-known mediums just got a good marketing company but it doesn’t mean that they do extraordinary work. On the other hand side I truly believe that being a genuine medium/psychic is a very valuable work and hard work but many people don’t see it as such.

If you want quality and you set your intentions towards it, I am sure you will be guided the right way.

4. Getting in touch with your medium/psychic

Once you made a decision and you found a medium/psychic of you choice its time to contact them. Do yourself and the medium a favour and have your questions at hand if you got any. So much time is wasted and emails been sent from people to us psychic/mediums with loads of unnecessary questions, pictures and asking for free readings.

Working in this field can sometimes be a bit tricky because people have all sorts of ideas about mediums/psychics.

A genuine medium/psychic will happily answer your questions when you make contact and will help to clarify your concerns if you have any.

If you don’t feel that is the case than you might not with the right medium/psychic then.

Once you happy with your first contact you can go ahead in booking a session via Skype or in person. Keeping in mind that mediums/psychics do this work for their living not for fun, means that you should keep the appointment you arranged or if you have to cancel as early as possible.

Some mediums ask for a deposit upfront as a sign of commitment for the appointment. Ask for their cancellation policy just to make sure you understood everything alright.

5. Be honest

It can happen during a reading that the medium might not picking up on your question or greatest desire. It is important to tell the medium that you are not happy with the reading within the first 10min of your reading. It gives the medium/psychic time to tune into you/or the spiritual world again to see what else is there to talk about.

You should be allowed to ask questions at any time and also keeping in mind that sometimes we hear things that we needed to hear but we don’t want to hear. This can be part of the reading as well. But most important, do speak up if you feel the reading is not for you or its going the wrong way!!!

In general just keep in mind the universal law of like attracts like. If you do your research with the right intentions I am sure you will find the right medium for you.

Capricorn by Franco Santoro

pic by healingstars.com

The sign Capricorn is rather controversial and complex as it represents the doorway into spirit and the relinquishment of the separate illusion of duality. The entrance of the Sun in Capricorn also coincides with the Winter Solstice, which is both the peak of darkness and the emergence of Light, the birthday of the Invincible Sun (click here for details).

The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, considers Capricorn as the most mysterious of the twelve and a very difficult one to define.“Even the symbol of the sign has never been correctly drawn, we are told, because its correct delineation would produce an inflow of force that would be undesirable; also this symbol is sometimes called the <signature of God>“.

At first sight the glyph suggests the form of a leaping mountain goat and the typical tortuousness of the sign. Such arcane nature makes Capricorn susceptible of major projections and misunderstandings, so that it is often seen as scapegoat and also as one of the less popular sign of the Zodiac (together with Virgo and Scorpio).

The seasonal period of Capricorn coincides with the arrival of the winter sleep and the quietness that facilitates inner work and planning for the next seasons to come. It is the phase when trees are like skeletons and the Earth appears naked, although in its depth the seeds are at work aiming at a remote as well as certain goal. From a spiritual perspective this is indeed the time of the highest flowering as the seeds of Aries reach here the end of their nine months’ labour.

This sign starts with the winter solstice, also called Sol Invictus and the Gate of Heaven. According to some esoteric traditions there are two major gates: the Gate of Cancer (gate of men), which leads into the physical dimension of separation and illusory perceptions of this planet, and the Gate of Capricorn (gate of heaven), the one leading to the spiritual kingdom of unity. This can be passed once the identification with the ego personality is over.

It is during the darkest moment of life that enlightening experiences can take place as well as the possibility to move to another level. Summer is apparently the most abundant, luminous and happy time of the year. Actually this is only what the physical body perceives. Winter is a time of coldness, darkness, introversion, withdrawal. Physical energy is at its lowest and this weakens the ego which thrives on the available exuberance of matter. It is in this context that spiritual energy may easily reach its peak.

It is part of the awareness of many esoteric traditions that darkness, depression, grievances and fear heralds the arrival of light, love and joy. When the Sun enters Capricorn it reaches its lower position in the northern hemisphere horizon, the Winter Solstice, and this also starts the solar cycle of ascension.

Julie – 28th Universal law – The law of group consciousness (video)

The universal law of group consciousness offers us the opportunity to get together with like-minded people and share ideas and belief systems. The chance to create something bigger together if we join with the same energy. This universal law also indicates that we are influenced by the collective consciousness of others, the mass. Therefor it is important that we carefully check the energy we surround ourselves with. The group consciousness expresses itself in the community, environment we are living in. On a smaller scale this law represents the dynamic and the influence of the people we spend most of our time with and the energetic effect on us.

Healing Communication by Franco Santoro

Healing communication in this world involves a mere and ongoing exchange of unconditional blessings and forgiveness horizontally, amongst human beings. At the same time it implies releasing curses and grievances verticaly, towards those luminous dimensions which can transform them.

Once we start this process we simply keep confirming our blessings horizontally, while releasing grievances vertically. It does not matter how we refine and embellish our language. What counts is that the healing process takes place.

Once we learn to use language for this process, language will not be needed anymore. We will be the process.

I bless and forgive you and me unconditionally.

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.

help

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” 
Munia Khan

 

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.

sunset

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.

Why being honest is so important

You know I like honesty and it is really important for me. For a long time I thought that all people do live by these kind of principles as they are common sense. Furthermore there are many world religions or other spiritual teachings that highlight the importance of honesty as a main principle for our every day life and still we fail massively in our practice of honesty.

google.com

Buddhism for example includes in its spiritual practices that we should not steal from others and also speak no words that harm. I am not sure if they realised that being honest sometimes can piss people off even if we didn’t intent to do so. Sometimes telling the truth can feel more like a slap into the face rather than receiving a bunch of beautiful flowers.

Being honest is not about pleasing everybody but its also not about hurting anyone by purpose either. It is about the right to be yourself and about bringing clarity into your life. I do believe that being honest is something that I do want to claim for myself.

I have the right to be honest and so have you.

google.com

I do offer honesty to my friends and I expect honesty in return. This is how it works for me without all these unspoken words.

I am not scared or afraid if the truth does hurt me because I am able to deal with it. If not, well I will learn to incorporate that into my life as well.

How often do we swallow what we actually want to say to someone?

How often do we hold back just to keep the harmony while there is a war inside of us?

How often has dishonesty lead to more problems than being honest in the first place?

Let’s just keep in mind that there are different ways of being honest and different reasons too.

google.com

To tell someone that they might hurt you or you don’t feel like hanging out with someone or spend time with them is not a crime. It is your right to set honest boundaries that work for you. It is your right to say – you hurt me. It is your right to say – I don’t like hanging out with you because…

Honesty doesn’t make you a lot of friends but it will keep you the right ones. Honesty will take you to places of more clarity and understanding of yourself but also of others.

We live in a fake smile society where everything is been left unsaid, wrapped up in something to hide it or we get shouted at. If we would have learnt to express honestly what we feel in the first place it would not have come to the point where we need to shout at each other to get heard.

google.com

If we had the balls to be honest and not lose our dignity nor make others lose theirs the world could be a better place. If we straight point out what the matter is and not hold back than the others know what is going on with us. This offers the opportunity to others to apologize if they did something wrong or to make an effort to change things that are not right.

Honesty offers space for improvement.

Instead we expect people to sense what we think or feel. And as an empath you feel a lot, sometimes more than you want to. This might also be part of the problem why I do like honesty so much. Then I don’t need to constantly ask myself what I have done wrong to others because the energy feels strange suddenly. And if you ask they say that everything is okay when it isn’t anyway. You know what, I am tired of that. Its a waste of time.

google.com

 

I feel drained by all this fake smiles and holding back of real feelings. Honesty brings clarity into your life and into the life of others. If you honesty say what the matter is or what you feel at least its out there and not inside of you. Where it slowly penetrates deeper and deeper into your subconsciousness and creates a life of its own. This is how negative shit comes about and eats you up.

You can be honest and kind at the same time. But to be honest requires a lot of training and skills and you will not always win the situation. We need to brave to be honest. Pointing out honestly what is wrong in our lives can be a very painful but eye opening process. To put the finger honestly where the wound is and acknowledging we might don’t know how to put it right. Yeah, that requires a lot of strength and often we not quite sure we have enough of it. Because we so easily pretend that we know how to fix everything or just like overseeing what is going wrong.

Sooner or later the truth will get you anyway. It will chase you like shadow even in the night. It will crawl into your dreams to remind you that something is not quite right. It doesn’t need to be that way, there are few things you can bring into your life and practice to be more honest to yourself and others.

1. Be honest about how you feel without feeling guilty.

Emotions are only temporary and also can be influenced by other people or our surrounding. The moment we are honest about how we feel it most likely will dissappear anyway. That might takes the edge of the drama already anyway.

2. Don’t stay quiet just to keep the harmony.

Nothing is more self-destructive than not speaking up when we really want to. Often we just don’t want to end up in an argument. We totally forget that sometimes releasing that amount of energy is important to break through to the next level – especially in relationships.

3. The truth doesn’t need to be delivered in a nasty way.

You can always be honest and be kind at the same time. It’s not your problem how other people receive your honesty but theirs. People don’t like to be told only to be praised but if you are honest that might not the case. Keep in mind that you want to be honest not mean – get that skill and keep your integrity and others too.

4. Being honest is a rare skill.

Yes being honest is a skill that requires a lot of training and might bring you into ackward moments but that is life. The less you fear to be who you really are and that includes living honestly the stronger you will get within yourself.

5. Honesty will open and close doors.

Stop living in the illusion that honesty gets you everywhere. It will take you to new places for sure, it will lead to different places and some of them you didn’t mean to end up. Be honest anyway. In long long term honesty will attract the right people and opportunities into your life.

6. Honesty brings clarity!

Yes it is true, if you honest about how you feel, what you want or what you think it will improve your life. Slowly but steady honesty will clarify what is important to you.

google.com

7. Explore when to speak up and when to keep quiet.

There is a fine line of being honest and keeping quiet and you will learn when to use what. Sometimes even if we are honest with others nothing will change, this is a good indication that we need to check with ourselves. It might be time to walk away from a situation or person that doesn’t listen, care or make the effort to change. At least then be honest to yourself.

8. Honesty destroys illusions.

Yes, that’s is what is going to happen. No more denial, no more pretending, just straight to the point. And finally we so easily can take it from there.

9. Be honest – make life of an empath better.

You know how many people really can sense when someone is lying? And how many empaths even do keep that to themselves and don’t point it out? Instead they suffer silently because they don’t even want to create more pain.

10. Being honest will release unnecessary cause of suffering in your life.

By being honest with others but also with yourself you erase a lot of worries and negative feelings from your life. Because you no longer pretend to be someone you are not. How freeing is that?

google.com

But most important maybe is that we also offer others the space to be honest. So others don’t feel intimidated by us but also grab the chance to be honest with us. Learning to calmly receive what others have to say without putting up our walls is another skill that we will need to learn in our honesty practice.

Let’s just keep it simple – and real, so the rest can fall into place.

So much love!!!!
