I started writing because it was healing for me. I hope that by sharing my journey I will be able to help other people who are on a similar path. I suffered for years from depression, and I understand how debilitating it can be. I was taught to believe that depression is genetic. I no longer believe that. Several people in my extended family have suffered from depression. My younger brother committed suicide almost 5 years ago, after suffering from depression for many years. My opinion about the cause of depression is that we are conditioned to believe so many things that just aren’t true. We have been conditioned to believe that we are bad or wrong if we don’t have the same beliefs as everyone around us. Depression happens when we hide our authenticity. There are many reasons why we feel the need to hide our authenticity. When our true self is hidden for too long, it can be forgotten, at least on a conscious level. We bury our truth and learn to just survive on a day to day basis.

I healed my depression. It took a lot of work and a lot of looking deep inside myself. It was so worth it! You can heal your depression too! Rediscovering my authentic self and learning to love myself has been my journey. I learned to hide my true self in order to survive.  My healing happened through the use of  “non-mainstream” avenues. I did not heal my depression using antidepressants and talk therapy. Some people may find relief this way, but I did not experience lasting relief using this method. I want to reach out to people who are struggling with depression.

I want to share the methods that have helped me along this journey. I have utilized the following tools: homeopathy, EFT, therapy(not in the traditional sense), body movement, meditation, living in the moment, healing music, massage, craniosacral therapy, authentic connection with others, alternative healing in general, law of attraction, and many other things.
