Thanks goes out to Bell & the Let's talk program, to Michael Landsberg & others & especially to Clara Hughes!
The work that has been done & is being done to bring mental health to the forefront is incredible!
Their numbers indicate that one in five Canadians suffer with some degree of mental health, but think about it for one second, aren't we all ONE? Even in operating on a worldly/physical plane anybody can see, that truly we are all very much affected by each other - 20% of us is a lot, but that number is a very conservative (VERY LOW) estimate.
I've been there. I had severe depression for many many years (approx.30yrs), but thanks to Bryan Farnum, a spiritual healer in the Toronto area, it is "gone for good" ! Through the path of spiritual forgiveness from God, we can totally heal ourselves.
Depression hurts! Those who suffer really do suffer- it's often a very dark place to reside - one with seemingly no escape, no end, & NOTHING is any good, good enough, or uplifting for more than brief moments. Some are suicidal, & many certainly have such thoughts, but there is nobody that can help & nobody to talk to. Many wrongly assume, that 'this' existence is normal. For people suffering, & it occurs in various degrees, all of which hurt & are harmful, even the nicest of events somehow lose all of their lustre - the mind quickly offers up an endless banter of negative angles on the event.
Like attracts like, so these negative thoughts soon invite their friends & a tangled web soon ensues. This makes its harder & harder to escape. Lives around the person crumble & fail in a multitude of ways & that hurts & harms everybody close to them, & themselves all the more. As a spiritual seeker, you know that affects YOU too. The world hurts plus we are no reaping the benefits of all of those people acheiving their greatness & instead may be dealing with damage repair...
For many, & I don't put all the blame on the medical profession, who may trying their best with the limited understandings we have in science, drugs have become the mode of "dealing" with most of the issues & they may have their place to some degree in keeping somebody around long enough to help them... Psychology as well attempts to "talk it out" or get to their suspected root childhood issues, but it's somewhat in vain.
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future. Swami Sivananda
To understand this one must first understand & accept that we have had many lives! Actually lots & lots of incarnations as part of one eternal life. IF you are stuck on this point consider the possibility that it is true, but there is a "block" preventing you from believing it. If you are willing to continue on this path, that block can perhaps be removed & the doors to healing yourself can be flung open.
Secondly it takes great faith in God & you've got to have a seeking heart such that you have even landed upon this page to begin with... & you must want to be healed.
Understand it is a path & not a one-shot in & out deal. You must approach this with a sincere heart, understanding that it will take some work perhaps (though God can surprize you with miracles at ant time)
One needs to grasp the scope of having had "many lives". In Canada we are generally a country of old souls who've been around the block many times, but this could be true of anyone in the world reading this. Having had many lives, we could have had the opportunity to find ourselves in ANY situation,under any ruler or difficult situation, in any era, in a multitude of possible race, age, monetary situations as male or female. The possibilities are enormous, but certainly the more recent incarnations will have a bearing beyond a psychologist looking at only one's childhood traumas... open your mind to the possibilities!
Ok, now you see why this could take a while, but trust me, it will free you forever! If you have access to someone such as Bryan to direct you that has the ability to do past-life regression that's a wonderful blessing. However, most don't, & the fact that we've incurred so many issues over such a broad-reaching life should tell you, it's very much an on-going pathway to heal. So how can we make an immediate meaningful & LASTING impact? (NOT BANDAID SOLUTIONS!) Well consider this - your soul has been through it all, & knows exactly why it came here. God knows too- HE LOVES YOU & WANTS TO SEE YOU HEALED. It's a key point! Depression is a direct result of significant pain we carry from harms we believe we have done.
So ask God. Pray as sincerely as you can, asking God what you may have done to cause harm, be involved in the harm of another or something else that comes to you. Do this even three times or more, listening for the answers, feeling your feelings & especially paying attention to your thoughts. It's best attempted in a space of relaxation & quiet, perhaps with pen & paper at ready. TRUST GOD that whatever thoughts or messages that come to you are you answer. Anything is possible with God. It is often the case that those in your life were there at the time of your specific event & they may have been someone quite different, & now they are back in your life to heal with you. When you have a thought , just go with it no matter how ridculous it may seem & especially pay attention to how it makes you feel if you hit on something! Bingo! (Keep it to yourself)
Now to FORGIVE! Understand that this revelation is a gift from a loving God. Feeling & understanding what you may have done magnifies the sincerity with which you forgive others & yourself & thus its effectiveness.
It's important to understand the pain, suffering & collateral damage of your actions or you have not learned & gained anything! Then forgive the soul of the other for whatever you think you may have done. Ask their soul to forgive you. (you can do this all in prayer, not needing to be with the other, though that is better provided they will not think you are insane). You & this other quite likely have been going back & forth over numerous lifetimes harming each other - "eye-for-eye". Now, forgive yourself! Do it three times to ensure sincerity or it's not going to work. Ask God your Father to forgive you & to lift all traumas, energies, & spirits off you into/out of the universe doing harm to nobody. Be grateful for the healing accepting & believing it fully & ask that a white light be put around you, protecting you.
When we harm another we send energy which is considered a spirit to the other person or even to ourselves thereby reminding us of the harms we did. IT STAYS WITH US until we FORGIVE. As such you can understand why merely talking it out, drug regiments, simple releases & just trying to be positive alone is not nearly enough!!!!! That energy is still there in our minds- we call it the ego, little voices, suicidal thoughts in depression & so forth... It will be there incarnation after incarnation until you forgive.
What have you got to lose? What if this is true? What would life be like if you began to undue these harms & the baggage you've been carrying like a ball & chain! One or two "forgives" & your depression could begin to lift. A lifestyle of forgiving could free you radically. THEN this spiritual awakening & bliss that you read about can become your reality!
Here's another quick outline of Forgiveness 101:
- Seek God & ask what you did, with sincerity & willingness to go on a spiritual path
- Understand what you did in all it's impact on you, the other & the collateral over lifetimes
- Ask forgiveness of others for whatever you may have done, open-minded to all possibilities
- Forgive the others for doing the same sort of harm to you - what goes around comes around
- Forgive yourself with sincerity
- Ask God to forgive you & to lift whatever energies/spirits everything off you out into the Universe to harm nobody & to heal your soul, body, & star, placing a protective white light of Christ around you.
- Be grateful! Thank God for the healing. Appreciate the other person for they've caused you now to be stronger & to have learned. Put some form of goodness in its place.
This general/basic technique should become a part of your every day life until you are free & clear of any anger, resentment, anxiety, jealousy, fears etc not just to rid depression. THERE ARE MANY ITEMS FOR US ALL TO OVERCOME. This is a WONDERFUL basic technique from Bryan Farnum that has been clearing my own path & the journey for thousands like me. Some cases may require more extreme measures/pro help, but it primarily depends upon one's faith - "according to your faith it will be done"
This is a free gift of great LOVE from the Father for His precious children!
My horrible, dangerous & difficult, 30yr depression has been gone for approximately 7 years now as well as many other issues in my life - it is the reason Hartbridge.ca exists - my life has & is still changing...
Please try it & give God the appreciation
