MODALITIES TO USE TO ALLEVIATE DEPRESSION

I cannot stress how my life opened up when I realized the wealth of knowledge that there was to help me to become the best that I could be. . If we can remember what truth there is in the fact that our own body will heal itself given the right nutrients then we can remember the saying of Doctor John Ray Christopher, “There are no incurable diseases – only incurable people.” By that he meant that whenever we insist on putting blocks in our way creating reasons why everyone else can heal but not us, then we remain stuck in the patterns that ultimately we have created for ourselves. Yes, that patterning may be difficult to recognize let alone remove. It may have been there for generations, learned from our family, and it may be a mountainous task to lift your head to the sun light and know that you can heal but it is worth every moment of the journey in doing so. All the more reason for you to be the one to break the pattern for the children to come. Become aware of whenever you say the words “But I can’t ….” If you find yourself giving excuses dig deeper. You may want to pick up a book on ‘Transactional Analysis’ or some other modality. Studying Transactional Analysis and learning of the self defeating games I played in my own life and the way I kept myself stuck was one of the turning points of my life.

Listed below are the some of the other modalities I used in my journey to health. I wish all who suffer from the debilitating pain and suffering of depression the joy I have found in reaching for the gifts that are all around us.

Choosing a holistic way to balance body mind and spirit is sometimes slower and often involves looking at many different facets of our life. I can only say that for me it has been well worth the journey From the pain of what I experienced I have become not only a better person but actually grateful for something which created in me a deep desire to change.

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face … we must do that which we think we cannot.
Eleanor Roosevelt
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
