Reflexology For The Spirit

Depression is Your Soul Crying Out for Help.

Spiritually, your soul cries out for help.  On top of all this spiritual suffering you may also have feelings of self doubt and hopelessness.  When you deal with depression, you feel you are stuck in a storywith no positive ending.

Everyone feels sad occasionally.  Your depression is unique, just as you are unique.  There’s a difference between having the blues and being depressed.  Depression is a disease of your soul.  Chemicals alone cannot cure your depression.

Depression includes feeling sad, empty, or unhappy.  Your sleep may be disturbed.  This means you may be sleeping too much or have insomnia.  Your diet may be disturbed.  This means you may have lost your appetite or you may be gaining weight.  Your thinking, speaking, and body movements have slowed down.  You feel anxious, agitated, and restless.  You have trouble thinking, concentrating, remembering things and making decisions.  You have unexplained physical problems such as back pain or headache.

You may have clinical depression if you drink alcohol and smoke excessively, experience poor appetite and weight loss, are preoccupied with negative thoughts  of despair, and contemplate suicide.

Whatever the symptoms, depression is a prolonged feeling of unhappiness.  It may be associated with grief, divorce, or retirement.  It may be connected with childbirth.  Whatever the trigger, depression is a disease which can be overwhelming.

Consult with a physician when you begin your search for relief because popular treatments include antidepressants and psychotherapy.  Depression is extremely treatable, so go for it!

Reflexology, Reiki, and chakra healings are not cure-alls but can certainly help.  Reflexology sessions encourage homeostasis, important for positive outcomes, especially since it’s not always easy for you to find how to lift your spirits.  Your sessions will help manage the side effects of any allopathic medications you may be taking.

When you stay connected with friends and community, your worries will be in the background.  Join a support group.  Your physician may have a list of groups available to you.  Do something you enjoy every day.  Journal about it.
