I’ve heard countless stories and have known people personally to go seek professional help from a Therapist or Psychologist due to depression and anxiety. They spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars to be cured, healed or to at least receive some sort of remedy to cope with their troubles. More times than not, after countless sessions, they’re still facing the same problems and still dealing with depression, stress and/or anxiety. Most times, these doctors just throw prescription medication at their patients which only adds more mental and physiological turmoil to the patient due to its side effects.
These doctors are getting paid top dollar and still not getting to the root cause of depression, anxiety and even stress for that matter. Here is the root cause:
The inability to govern and direct your own thoughts and emotions.
Yes, it really is that simple. All cause for any suffering is based off one’s perception. Your perception is created by how you think and feel about a certain situation, person or thing. The sessions spent in a therapist office should be dedicated to teaching the patient how to shift their perception by taking control of their thoughts and emotions. Better yet, many of us could skip the therapist office all together had we been taught this as children. But, we can learn from our past and begin to teach our children this sacred art of the power of controlling your mind instead of letting your mind control you.
Many of our ancestors knew and practiced this power which is why they were able to do such amazing and miraculous things; however, we are eons away from that, so we have to start where we are. We can start now by teaching our children, but first we must re-learn this art and practice it for ourselves.
If this sounds too simple, ponder on this. If you find yourself in a stressful situation, invoking even the simplest of thought such as “This is only temporary” will bring you peace. So, imagine doing this on a more consistent basis. The problem is we let our minds take off and create all sort of scenarios that then makes us feel anxious. The depression kicks in because we constantly replay these scenarios and thoughts in our head. Then we become so entrenched in it that we don’t know how to get out of that thought pattern and feel stuck in a negative loop. You must learn to catch your thoughts before they even take off. Stop them as soon as possible. You are the controller of your mind, but it will take practice and you must be willing to dedicate yourself to learning how to do it.
