In the spiritual sense, depression can have many deeply rooted causes. Some of those causes are:
- not being able to move on from the past
- resisting change
- believing that things should be happening differently and not accepting what is
- harboring resentment, regret, guilt, and shame deep in the subconscious
- not processing pain but instead attempting to mask it
- trying to mask who one truly is
- not answering to one’s higher calling by avoiding it
- feeling and believing that one is not living up to their full potential
I have felt and experienced all of the above at different times. Whatever the cause, depression lowers our vibrational state and we operate in lower energy fields bringing on sickness, attracting negative situations, and having poor mental, physical, and emotional health. The following are some affirmations for depression:
I am checking into this moment now and I am okay with it.
I have a lot to be grateful for.
