3 Step Process for Depression: Part 1
As I mentioned last week in the MindBody TV episode, fall is a time when we move through (and release) grief and despair. This makes way for our expansion into greater aliveness.
When we resist this process, or don’t know how to move through it fluidly, we can feel very heavy and stuck and even “fall” into depression.
This is the process I use when I feel stuck!
I’ve been in my own expansion lately and have taken lots of time to let this integrate.
→ This is the process I use to release old energies as I emerge into ever new and more abundant energies of joy and peace. ←
It’s very important we learn what to do when we’re in this state! Most of what we typically try to do just creates more resistance! We push it away, medicate ourselves, distract, practice addictions like social media or other avoidance behaviors… everything BUT practice sitting with this energy!
This is because we haven’t understood what’s really going on and how to move through it to RECEIVE what we need! It’s natural to go through the process of expansion, and it doesn’t have to be unpleasant. We can move through our cycles (even despair) while appreciating the beauty of what’s really emerging for us.
Practice this or adapt it for yourself, and let me know how it goes for you!
Have you had any of these thoughts yourself?
It can be totally insane and seem to make no sense, but there are many energies that live in us and are ready to be released.
See if you can make more space for this to happen, and delight in all that this welcomes in!
