Depression is a malady that seems to haunt us all at one time or another. It is common to feel depressed when our world is out of balance, or when it seems we are not receiving the things we most desire in our lives.
I have found that spiritual practices, such as meditation and journaling, help us to get in touch with our spirit guides and higher source, so that we can alleviate this problem more quickly and effectively, instead of treating it with medications.
Our spirit guides are a wonderful source of healing, guidance and direction. Getting in touch with our guides can indeed help us to move out of depression, for they have the ability to free and empower us on every level.

In my experience, when we strive to make daily contact with our guides, our awareness of them grows stronger. Our intuition and psychic abilities will begin to function with greater ease, and the sadness that hangs over us will begin to lift.
There are a number of practices that are highly effective to achieve this. One is to schedule a morning or evening meditation each day. Be consistent with it and plan to spend a minimum of 15 minutes with your guides.
Sit in a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted. You can specifically pray for your guides to come to you, and then ask any specific questions you might have. Then sit in silence and wait for guidance. After a few days you will begin to realize that your guides are always near and watching over you.
Often times our spirit guides will send us messages through other people. When we least expect it a friend or relative might mention something that addresses a problem we are having, without them being aware of it. That’s when you can tell that your guides are channeling messages to you through other people.
Another effective method to alleviate depression is through daily journaling. Writing down your feelings gets them out of your head and on to paper. Many times we get stuck in the thoughts, fears or worries that swirl around in our minds. Once we put them in writing and clear our heads, new ideas, solutions and hope can emerge, shifting our mood from sad to hopeful.

A third spiritual practice that I have found to be very effective in quelling depression is change. Making small changes to your daily routine, your physical appearance or surroundings creates a renewed awareness and raises your vibration. For example, when I used to feel sadness or depression coming on, I would change my hair color! Every time I looked in the mirror my awareness would shift and I would be brought back to the moment, no longer worrying about the past or what the future might hold. Living in the present and trusting that spirit has things well in hand, is a powerful way to shake off those blue feelings.
Most people don’t realize that spiritual connection is essential in overcoming depression and facilitating healing on every level. Since depression is such a low and heavy vibration, being depressed can make it impossible to feel Spirit’s presence in our lives. By continuing to work to establish a strong connection with your spirit guides and higher source, you are taking a powerful step towards freeing yourself from the grip of depression.
