Depression plagues so many people in this world. It is a very real disease with sometimes very serious consequences. It is rarely caught early enough and people too often find themselves drowning in their own sorrow.
Sometimes it’s discovered too late and after the fact. Think about all the recent tragedies that have happened around the world. A lot of the sadness and violence begins as a seemingly unstoppable result of immeasurable depression.
But what is the underlying cause of depression and how does it begin? When and how soon should it be noted and then treated? Are there spiritual reason as to why it occurs to some people and not others? Is it always because of a chemical imbalance, having nothing to do with spiritual or past life events? And how should it be treated? Should one immediately seek medical advice or look for the underlying spiritual reason first?

I think in a lot of cases, and from my own experience, that it involves both physiology and spirituality. I think that in some cases it may have a purely spiritual cause, having to do with past lives and karma. Maybe we chose this Earthly plane to experience depression in order to teach others about patience or empathy. However, in other cases I feel it’s nothing more than a chemical imbalance that needs to be treated. More often than not it’s both, and I’ve seen either one trigger the other.
Whatever the root cause, depression isn’t something we were born to endure. I believe we all deserve some level of happiness and that there are steps to be taken to improve our quality of life. The key here is being able to admit that it’s a problem or a concern in your life, and then doing something about it!
If it takes going to a medical doctor first to get yourself out of bed, then do it. If further spiritual work is still needed after that step, do that as well. We are all worth the effort. And we all deserve to be happy. Please don’t even let yourself or a loved one believe anything different. Let’s stop the cycle of depression. Scientific support and spiritual guidance is available everywhere – in this realm and beyond. All you need to do is ask.
