Who are you? Please come out, the world misses you

Written by Amie on December 23, 2010 – 7:32 pm -

Listen to your inner voice

I’m not sure where this message came from, but I’m thinking it came straight from my soul. I didn’t even sit down to write a post, but suddenly I knew I needed to. Please reach out to find what you need. You are so important to the world. We miss you and your presence, and your truth. Please don’t go against what your inner divine voice is saying to you. You are important, and you deserve joy and love in your life, I promise you. The love you were born with is right there waiting inside you. Look at yourself in the mirror and welcome yourself back to your life. See deep into your eyes, we are all there too, I promise you. Look someone else in the eyes. Really *see* them, and then see what you have in common with them. We are all in this together. I am here for you always, and I mean that with all of my heart. You are loved. You *are* love.

Your inner world

No more hiding who you really are, the world feels your absence. Depression is so prevalent because the external world does not match up with all of the love and truth that is contained in  our internal world. There is not something wrong with you if you can’t get your internal world to jibe with the external. It’s a really *good* thing that it doesn’t. Your internal world is right-the external world is way off balance and you are feeling it. Don’t beat yourself up for feeling *different* or depressed. Listen to that internal voice because something is way off. It is our world, not each of us individaully. We are all one, and the way to heal this crazy off balance world is to live your internal world on the outiside. Show the world your truth. Yes, you may have been taught that who you are is not right, not good, or just not enough….but that lesson was so wrong! That lesson was taught to you through someone else’s fear. They probably didn’t mean for you to learn fear, but that was all they knew.  So, guess what? It really is safe for you to come out.

We miss you

The world is missing a link….and that link is you. You were right there all along, but we were missing you because you were hiding your beauty, your magic, your truth. Please come out and show us who you are. If someone around you says they don’t like it…it is only because they are living in fear. Don’t make yourself small or invisible just to appease someone else’s fear. It is not fair to everyone else around if you hide your beauty. It may feel scary at first. That’s ok, reach out to someone who loves you. I love you! Let them know how hard it is for you to just be you. How afraid you are to show what you really need and want and believe and feel.

We are all one

You are a part of me, and I am a part of you. We are all connected. When you hurt, I hurt. So many people are hurting right now because they don’t know that everyone around them cares about them. The way to peace is to be yourself and live your truth. If everyone did this, our world would be at peace. Heal those things in you that still hurt. In order for me to be who I am, I must allow myself to feel; pain, anger, disappointment, sadness, joy, happiness, fury….every emotion.It can be hard but only because you were taught to fear emotion. That’s the reason. You were taught that feeling emotion is hard and wrong and not necesary and that you should be afraid of it. It can be tough, yes. However, you will get to the other side of it when you allow yourself to feel those crappy feelings that come up. They can’t hurt you anymore, they can only help you heal.

You are perfect

Raise your head up and walk with the power that has always been with you. It never left. Fear just got louder than love. Let love have a voice again. Make changes in your life so that love becomes the dominant role. No more judging others, because that means you are also judging yourself. You have had more than enough judgment in your lifetime. You are perfect and you always have been, this I know for absolute sure. Fear overrode and that let depression in. If you need help finding your buried self, please reach out to ask. We are all in this together even though we have been taught that we should be independant and that we should be strong and do it all ourselves. That is more fear based wrong information, I assure you. Reach out to a trustworthy friend, a therapist, find a homeopath (e-mail me if you need help with this), get a massage to nurture yourself, join a group of like-minded people, volunteer at an animal shelter. Do things that nurture YOU, your spirit, who you *really* are. We are here to experience love and joy. There will be bumps along the way, but if you allow yourself to be truthful, and to feel your truth, you can weather all of the bumps, I assure you.

Depression is a wake-up call to heal and nurture yourself

Written by Amie on December 10, 2009 – 12:23 am -

woman-talking-on-phone-angry-uidYou are not flawed or weak

Many people think that having depression means they are flawed. I know I did. Depression is sometimes viewed as having a weakness. People who believe this have no idea what struggling with depression is really like. Depression does not mean you are flawed in any way, nor does it mean you are weak. It really means that you are ready to wake up to your truth! It is a major wake up call. Believe me, I never saw it this way when I was in the deep dark hole of depression. I believed 100% that I was flawed. I understand the reason I thought there was something wrong with me. It was  because I spent all of my energy trying to make my depression go away, instead of focusing on what was going on inside me. I tried to find something, anything, that would end my suffering. I had no clue that in order to make my depression go away, I would have to face my truth. It is sometimes a very painful process.

Our nervous systems are on overload, let your truth take the reins

Since so much of our world (the environment, the structure of our world) is depressed right now, it is no wonder so many people are depressed. I saw a statistic that antidepressant usage in the United States has doubled in the last decade.  Our nervous systems are on overload. Our inner world mimics our outer world unless we make the conscious decision to allow our truth to take the reins. Many people choose to continue down the path of suffering for many reasons. They may choose “DOing”, instead of “BEing”. They may choose to keep themselves so busy that there is seemingly no time to deal with their inner world. It is different for each person. Some people are just not ready to awaken. Others begin the journey, but stop when it becomes too painful. I can relate to this. Awakening is a wonderful, empowering path, but it is also painful and difficult at times.

Feel your full range of emotions

Our culture encourages avoidance and repression of emotions. Medication is encouraged usually from the start to make the “symptoms” go away. Medication is necessary in some cases, but should not always be the first suggestion in my opinion. Our society encourages us to avoid emotions and feelings. The thought is that we need deal with it quickly and then just get on with life. It is assumed that happiness with follow. Well, this doesn’t always work. If you are human, you have a full range of emotions. Not one of them is more important than the others. Not one of them is worse than the others. Depression comes in when we repress, avoid, or ignore our emotions. As children, it is sometimes necessary to create coping mechanisms in order to survive varying traumas. This also sets up the pattern of depression. Coping mechanisms are usually taken into adulthood. Therefore, years and years of repressing emotions are accumulated.

Depression is the beginning of a wonderful journey

The most wonderful news is that we all can heal. Everyone is capable of healing. As we each heal individually, our world also begins to heal. Everyone and everything is connected, so our personal healing contributes to the world healing. All humans have emotional wounds. Depression is a big, and sometimes very loud wake-up call for us to begin healing. For most people, depression will keep nagging at them until they finally pay attention to the cry for healing. Depression is not a weakness, it is a call to re-discover your strength. Depression is a call for you to remember to nurture yourself and your truth. Depression is the beginning of a wonderful journey of allowing yourself to be exactly who you are. Depression is a call from your soul letting you know that change is needed. Your inner connection is broken and is ready to be repaired. Repaired with love and nurturing that you deserve. Be Gentle with yourself. Be nurtured. Pure love is within you right now, and always.
