Anxiety and Depression
Impatience is a sign of anxiety. Anxiety is the need to control. Control is a sign of fear. Fear is a sign of not having surrendered to love. Love is everything. God is love. ~ Anonymous
If we view anxiety and depression as a battle we cannot win, it will be.
Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication may work short-term, but they can cause a wide variety of health problems, including jitteriness, decreased sexual desire, nausea, weight gain, and insomnia. A study published in the journal Frontiers of Psychology reported depressed people who use antidepressants are far more likely to suffer a relapse of major depression than those who avoid antidepressants.

You don't need drugs to help with depression. It has been proven that increased dopamine and serotonin levels in the body raise our level of joy.[ii]
Energy is always in motion but not always flowing. When energy is not flowing through us, it becomes stagnant. When it becomes stagnant, we become depressed. Energy must keep moving in order to maintain the flow of life and not stay stagnant within the self.
Anxiety and depression are signs that fallen angels, or low-vibration entities, are draining your energy and whispering negative thoughts in your head to keep you down. Work to release them, use the Platinum Shield, and recite decrees or spend three to five minutes giving gratitude to raise your vibration. Be the power plant to keep the low-vibration entities away. (See Appendix.)
Another way to release depression is to be in service to others. When we are in service to others, we are in the flow of life. We are too busy to be depressed. Our attention shifts from “me” to “we.”
The “attitude of gratitude” can also help to dispel anxiety and depression. Spend three to five minutes giving gratitude to God to totally shift your way of thinking and being. Gratitude will not only lift your spirit, it will help you see the blessings of life and to stay positive.
Find joy in life by choosing to make time for you. Find the beauty in life and within you.
Dealing with Anxiety and Depression
How to prevent an anxiety attack:
Breathe deeply three to four times, in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Use the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste to help bring someone back to the present moment. Look around to find:
· 5 things you can see
· 4 things you can hear
· 3 things you can touch
· 2 things you can smell
· 1 thing you can taste
This is called grounding. It can help when you feel like you’ve gone too far in your head and lost all control of your surroundings. You can also thump your thymus to center yourself and bring you back into balance.
To Dispel Depression:
There are a variety of ways to dispel depression naturally. Listed below are some of my recommendations. Use them all to make a powerful antidote to keep the blues away with no side effects except happiness and well-being.
· Spend 3-5 minutes giving gratitude to God whenever you feel depression settling in, and it will totally shift your way of being.
· Recite the twenty I Am Decrees given to us from Source/God through Elliott Eli Jackson to help raise your vibration and to help you remember who you really are.
· Find joy in life by choosing to make time for you. Take time to be in nature. There’s beauty in nature; it will help to ground you. Surround yourself with beauty. Find the beauty in life and in you.
· Listen to uplifting music.
· Do something to be in service to others.
· Exercise or practice yoga to keep your energy flowing and strong.
· Meditation, not medication! Meditate at least ten minutes every day to keep the blues away and to find the peace within.
· Use and/or diffuse Frankincense essential oil, a proven antidepressant with no side effects, to help dispel depression. Use and/or diffuse uplifting therapeutic essential oils blended to raise your vibration. Modern Essentials guidebook recommends lavender, orange and lemon, or a grounding blend to dispel anxiety and lemon and frankincense to dispel depression.[i]
· Drink herbal teas.
· Take a high dose of a quality magnesium supplement. Eat mangoes, which are high in magnesium, to calm the nerves.[ii]
· Eat foods that ward off depression:[iii]
o Sweet potatoes – rich in Vitamin B6. Low levels of B6 have been associated with symptoms of depression.
o Spinach – rich in tryptophan and folate. Tryptophan and folate increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps us feel happy.
o Cashews – very rich in tryptophan. Eating two handfuls of cashews is the equivalent of one dose of Prozac.
o Berries – rich in polyphenols, an anti-inflammatory. Inflammation has been linked to symptoms of depression.
o Avocados – this superfood is rich in tryptophan, folate, and omega-3. Omega-3 has been known to reduce inflammation in the body and regulates the brain’s neurotransmitters.
· Place a rose quartz crystal in your left pocket to bring in love, and a black tourmaline in your right pocket to release negative thoughts and emotions.
· Wear blue lace agate to help maintain a peaceful state of being.
· Take a hot bath using a handful of dead sea salts and a few essentials oils; e.g., eucalyptus, lavender, rose, geranium, or jasmine
· Raise your vibration by eating foods high in alkaline. Dis-ease cannot settle into a body that is 7.8 or higher in alkaline. Alkaline represents love; acid represents fear.
Anxiety and depression are the result of low-vibration entities whispering low-vibrational thoughts in your ear. Keep fresh eucalyptus around the house. Diffuse eucalyptus or Release essential oil (Young Living) and place a drop of oil on your crown chakra, your third eye, your throat chakra, your wrists, and the top of your feet to release them and to push them away. Low-vibration entities do not like eucalyptus.
