In the last year with Covid I’ve been hearing a lot about how people have been affected in their emotional and mental states. Depression has been on the rise and it’s quite understandable.
Over the last 15 years or so, I’ve been blessed to see many people apply spiritual teachings and principles and I’ve seen them rise up out of depression.
Each one has has their own unique experience, of course.
For some it’s easier, for some it seems more challenging, but there’s a lot we can shift when we apply the ACIM principles. I’ve witnessed so many miracles AND we don’t know what anything is for (Lesson 25).
A Course in Miracles speaks of depression as the manifestation of a denial of God and of the unity of all life. At it’s essence it’s a reaction to separation.
These are not things we can remember choosing, even if we did. The healing doesn’t come with focusing on “how did I get here?” Our healing happens when we start going to Spirit to say “I’m willing to truly see now. I’m willing to value the truth now. I’m willing to forgive myself for somewhere, somehow choosing this. I’ve had enough.”
We have to start somewhere and that’s a good place to start. If we feel angry, let’s get it out and move on to self-forgiveness.
Being mad at ourselves or others can be expressed and moved through. Holding onto the past is one of the ways we play small and generate even more reasons to be mad at ourselves.
Forgiveness IS the fastest path out of hell.
Self-forgiveness is what it’s all about!
We CAN undo the depression by letting Spirit heal the root causes of it.
Today is the perfect time to begin, again!
