The difference between those suffering from anxiety/depression, and those who are winning the fight from these dark shadows, is awareness and acceptance. Only when you are aware of the problem and accept the hard truths about it, can you then have a foundation to start from, to keep fighting another day, and to become victorious!
I’ve been taking some time off from writing, mainly because I got sick. Starting to heal up and feel better, and am working on my mind as well. I came across this video and thought I’d share. This particular video has an exceptionally calming narrator. Perhaps one of the more pleasant guides Meditation voices I’ve heard. Hope this helps some of you tonight.
It’s easy in this day and age of social media, especially Facebook, with so much news and information, real or fake, good or bad, helpful or distracting, to get stuck on stupid. There is just too much information that streams through while you are supposedly “keeping in touch” with people via social media. What you often keep in touch with is an overload of information, an overload of negative news and then with that, an overload of anxiety and stressful thoughts. It’s easy to get stuck and feel mentally paralyzed in fear, anger, or numbness.
Try to be mindful of how much time you spend allowing yourself to be open to so much information. I have this bad habit as well. As if I need to fill my head with more negativity! I’ve just recently learned to throw out negative thoughts that constantly stream into my mind for no good reason! The last thing I need is more fuel for them!
Whatever you see or hear, process what you’re feeling, but don’t get stuck. Stay focused, move forward, push on, and if possible, take action for or against what has you potentially stuck, especially if it can help in a positive way.
All day today, my empath self completely took over. With all the things happening, especially with the attack in Syria, I have been feeling the weight of the world. Praying for everyone suffering, crying when no one could see me, coming home and sitting in a catatonic state just trying not to slip further into depression.
Some days are like this. I don’t have the answers to my questions. All I can do is love. Love, even in the condition I’m in at the moment. Hug my family a little tighter. Appreciate those around me, especially those who are also empaths whose hearts are breaking in unison with mine.
Naysayers will say that it doesnt matter, but I’m here to tell you, keep your hearts strong. Love is the most powerful energy of all. It is the most powerful strength we humans have. That energy will effect the rest of the world. It is all a ripple effect.
Believe me, I know it feels useless, and it’s so easy to feel helpless in these times. But collectively, our energies of love, no matter what condition we are in, makes its way around. We are all connected. So keep loving, everyone, no matter what condition you find yourself in.
With the political climate being what it is, there is a lot of uncertainty. All I can think about it right now is, how much fear is effecting it all and has effected it all from the start. A longer post will be written soon about this, but please keep this in mind today. Do not allow fear to rule your thought process or your emotions. If you allow fear to be the front runner, you will be easily manipulated, even when you don’t realize it. Underlying fears are the most dangerous, because you won’t even realize you have them, and you won’t be looking to prevent them. Be blessed everyone, be strong in your mind and heart, and keep looking up.
