Healing from Depression
Depression is pain. Feelings of sadness, anger, irritation and numbness are symptoms of depression. Some come to my office with the official diagnoses of depression while others are baffled by their outlook. They report being "sad, without a reason" and being in a "rough patch that will not seem to end". Unlike sadness, depression is not about a situation or circumstance. Depression is the person's outlook on life.
Many people who are depressed have tried many therapies, seen countless doctors, and tried supplements with some or little result. Many have been blamed for their own condition and so have learned to hide their malaise and isolate. A depressed person can be confused about what to do next and are afraid to tell people about their depression for fear of judgement. They are wary of the next therapy with over inflated promises.
"For the past 25 years, I have been struggling with anxiety, depression and chronic pain. Overwhelmed by the severity of my struggles I sought help from various physicians, therapists, and ecclesiastical advisors. While some of my symptoms where managed for a time under their care, I still struggled. In my work with Colby, I came to experience my spirit healing my body and mind. A remarkable transformation has occurred. For the first time in my life I have hope. I have become acquainted with the beauty that is my higher self. The holes in my soul caused by tragedy and grief have been healed. I am overflowing with love and strength."

The cause of a person's depression can be as unique as the person. Depression has several components:
1. Mental- the way someone thinks and therefore perceives their circumstances.
2. Energetic- a person's field is set up to receive, hold and disperse energy.
3. Physical- neurotransmitter cells in the body are set up to receive, hold and share information with the rest of the body.
How to Energetically Shift Depression
Spiritual healing can address the mental, energetic, and physical causes and symptoms of depression. By accessing and shifting the energetic body of a person new connections can be made in the brain to encourage neurotransmitter cells to create more resourceful connections consistent with a more positive mood.
By clearing the energetic field of ruminated thoughts, regrouping the grounding system, re-aligning the energetic blueprint can shift a person almost immediately out a dark place. Unearthing and clearing core negative beliefs, like: " I am not worthwhile." "Life is empty and meaningless" ;"I don't belong anywhere" can get to the root of depression and finally lift its weight.
The work of clearing depression may not be done when the sessions are over- there is homework. Since some people have been in the habit of depression for a long time, their body, mind and energetic field need to be trained to hold a new energy and outlook. Former depressed people benefit from learning how to keep their fields clear of other people's energy. Many depressed people are sensitive people who have been overloaded with other people's negative thoughts and feelings. Where appropriate, I teach clients to "reboot" their field energetically by "going to a place in the Universe to refuel their field with positive, strong and stable energy".
There was quite a shift after our session. There is a new person walking around in my body. My mind is not consumed with worries, instead I am able to put my attention on what I would like to happen. I am back in the space I used to be in where I was able to watch life unfold intentionally.
