Take a shower and your depression will go away. I’m seriously! As silly as it sounds, it’s true. Depression is caused by external factors. Like the environment or an event or a simple object that reminded you of your darkest times… it always begin outside, then slowly triggers a certain emotion. The emotion grows as you give it attention and In no time it awakens the pain in your heart. Thus become your state of being; what we often call a MOOD.
There was a time when I got so busy with tasks and decided to put self care as my last priority. I didn’t take a shower for 2 contentious days! GROSS I KNOW. But the lesson I learned from this experiment was BIG. I recognised the dramatic mood swing. Showering is a big deal. When showering you’re not only cleaning your body from dirt. But you’re cleansing your energy too. Our aunt sisters understood that water is the key to life. They referred to water as a cleansing tool and use to do what they called SPIRITUAL SHOWERS. Where you perform a normal shower, but while dropping water on your body you imagen the negative toxic energy falling off with the water. As if the water is stripping away the negative energy from your body part.
The danger of not showing regularly goes beyond the spiritual and psychological aspects. When you don’t shower your skin PH becomes disturbed. In addition your skin pores gets blocked. When your skin can’t breath you feel DEAD and develop frustration, anger and depression. Your state of being reflects on the outside; through your attitude and what you attract. Energy thing is energy, so take care of your energy first .
A short advice to those who have Been suffering with depression for a very long time. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. Yet just because it’s common it doesn’t mean you accept it. Get yourself out of it NOW!! Look at your lifestyle and what could possibly be feeding your depression. Is it sad energy you watch on Instagram? Is it your diet or your self esteem? Or is it the fact that you lock yourself at home? .. You see, our anut sisters lived outdoor. They never had electronic devices or OGM food. They listened to their bodies. Thus they never had depression. LIVE AS A HUMAN, LIVE THE RIGHT WAY.
So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll down. Why are you depression? ..Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed? Do you think you can control your life & your depression?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen in the external world, but you can control what happens inside of you” what if I told you, you can control both at a certain rate! the your external reality is a reflection of your inner state of being. thus get your inner world healed, then you can move on to the external one. The only reason you’re depressed is because you always focus on the negative and what you focus on, you shall find.
The truth is there’s no good or bad, instead everything is neutral in nature. Our mind is the instrument that define good and bad. When your mind patterns is defining everything as BAD no wonder why you’re depressed! Negative thinking patterns develop negative low emotions such as sadness, depression, anixity and madness..etc These emotions then develop a reaction and the reaction implant your reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t control your reaction. The reaction you give of is the product of an emotion . the emotion is born from a certain mindset or what we call a perspective on life. It’s like a chain reaction where one thing drag the rest. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view, turning this moment into joy or instead focus on the crowd that build up frustration.
The key of happiness is to look at everything as it is. With a neutral perspective. No judgment. Exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO “. This is the absolute life reality. No situation is either good or bad. Instead our thoughts are what define the situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective you will realise the sense of ease. Because you’re accepting the situation as it is, which allows the energy to flow. There’re no resistance or negativity. It’s such a blessing of inner peace! Furthermore, neutrality is obtained with a very high vibration, (a high level of consciousness). Thus you can’t effortlessly achieve a neutral mentality. Yet you can practice neutrality by being aware of your judgement.
Catch yourself when you judge a situation as good or bad. Then ask yourself the reason behind your judgement. At this moment it will become clearer to you, that it’s your mind and not the reality of the situation. Now! try to look at the situation from a neutral eye; Search for the good and the bad. Once the two possibilities are present in a situation you’re basically tricking your mind into opening a door of CHOICE. Your mind can no longer play the victim mentality. But you’re now in control and freedom of choice. You can either choose to react positively or negatively.
My sister have spent her entire life hanging from one job to another. In every job she repeated the same phrase ” I’m not happy “. My sister wasn’t a slave to the system. She had courage to stand up for herself. She did so when she found herself unhappy with a certain job. But she couldn’t quit the old fashioned mentality! She was like any human, looking for happiness & success. She was someone who believed happiness & success exist with a common job, especially in a super developed city. My sister failed to realise what she’s looking for is in fact easy to achieve; and found with in .
“DON’T ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU CAN GIVE TO THE WORLD, ASK WHAT MAKES YOU ALIVE .” This’s one of my favourite quotes plus the reason for my sister’s dissatisfaction. Non of the positions she obtained were fulfilling her, simply because she wasn’t living her life mission. We’re all born with a gift. A gift that’s suppose to be used for the service of others. Everybody’s gift is different. However, in order to find what your gift is; you must discover who you are not. When you know who you are not , who you are will become clearer.
Note : Don’t confuse your gift with passion or interests! One of the common mistakes nowadays is that people have too many interests. So they run around trying to do everything. While you can only get excellent at one thing, Which is your gift..
But How do I find my gift / purpose in life faster?
A wise man once told me on my way to Africa; to welcome all experiences and go through them UNTIL THE END. Finish them ! … This was back then when I had the habit of jumping around from one thing to the next. The more you experience the better you know what not to do, which later guide you to your purpose. Dont take failing as something too seriouse. You’re not worthless! Your failure is for two reasons, either the thing you failed in is not meant for you ( not your purpose) or it is your purpose in life, but you’re on the road of learning. EMBRACE AND LOVE EVERY FAILURE, BECAUSE EVERY FAILURE IS A STEP FORWARD.
You will know your purpose, Be patient! I’m confidently saying this because it’s within you; Your truth and all you need is within you. There’s nothing easier to find than what is already inside you. Always follow your gut feeling. Also what I said earlier about feeling alive. Then add to the equation “How can I serve others “…Anddddd booom!! There you have it. The first thought is the answer. Now put it into experience & see what happens.
The law of detachment insures you that your burning desire will manifest into your reality once you LET GO . You see, when you hold on into something so tight it will slip away, plus your pressure it hurting it . Leaving a room for air is necessary for energy flow. Yes! Have a burning desire that drives you out of bed everyday but not a Need that destroy you, if your goal didn’t get manifested. The number one state of power and attraction of success in every aspect of life. Is to become deeply connected to EVERYTHING and attached to NOTHING.
Make your energy alined and connected with your goals so you can early attract them. But NEVER emotionally attached to them. Once you get attached to something it roles you . Furthermore, Due to the law of detachment when you’re in a state of detachment; your subconsciously repealing the target instead of attracting it. This is based on your condensation on the absence of the goal in the current reality. It also begins doubt and fear which doesn’t support the law of attraction.
I know how hard it is to let go of something your desperately want . Indeed, it’s human nature to be selfishly possessive. The truth is; YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT THAT ONE DRUG YOUR AFTER. You don’t need anyone or anything to survive life accept god and yourself. Every other thing can be sacrificed. Believe in yourself and you gifted power. Let go of all attachments! Trust me YOU’LL FEEL FREE❤. with deeply connecting to your journey, goals and plans. You’re already half way to success.
