Happiness is a state of being. At times it can occur naturally and other times it requires a conscious decision to do the work. Happiness doesn’t come to you, it has to come from within you. Healing depression is an ongoing process that requires perseverance even when you feel like you have nothing left to give yourself. It’s important to make the choice to invest in yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally. It’s the daily choices one makes each day that adds to an individual's happiness despite circumstances that arise. What do you read? What do you watch? What music are you listening to? Who do you share your energy with? What are you feeding your soul? These choices define a person and add up to keep one in a happy state of mind. Focus on what you want to be and be thankful for what you have. Do your best to live in the moment and not the memories of the past or the worry of the future. Change your mindset to remember that every day is a new beginning. Live by that phrase “one day at a time” because saying that to yourself when no one can be around to say it to you is critical. Smile, breathe, refocus, and try again. Love yourself a little extra on the emotionally trying days. Choosing to heal spiritually with an open heart is exactly what I’ve done but it’s a continual process.
It’s important for you to understand why I have advice to offer on the topic of healing depression with a loving heart. I’ve been a Reading Specialist for grades K-12 in the same school district since 2003. I’ve always poured my heart into everything I do since the very first day running around shouting “feel the love” to everyone. I’m definitely a hugger, and thoroughly enjoy blowing kisses to everyone. Working with such unique cases and under extreme scenarios much of the time has always taught me to think outside of the box, always finding the good in everyone and every situation. Considered a “gifted Empath” I use my gift to deeply connect to people. In the year 2014 I was struck; blindsided by a drunk driver four times over the legal limit. The injuries I sustained were a traumatic brain injury, torn right shoulder, neck trauma, left hand finger torn, and left side hip pains. It took me years of physical training (neck, shoulders, back, left hip side, and left hand), prescribed medications for pain, injections in my shoulders, neurofeedback, and cranial sacral therapy to name a few of the several healing paths I took for rehabilitation. I attended neurofeedback for one and a half years. During this time I was deemed “mentally disabled”. I lost the ability to form complete sentences, write, and had short term memory loss to the point of not remembering the words I spoke just moments before. I lost my sense of humor as I couldn’t process information correctly causing me to lose my fun loving and playful personality. I was so angry that I had lost my identity, fearful that I would never find myself again. Truth be told I didn’t! I just created a new me with an unconditional love that I showed myself. I am still seeing the amazing psychologist that has been my grounding force through all of my traumas in the past 7.5 years. I saw a total of 14 specialists, PT's, etc.. to rehabilitate including the unorthodox ways of healing.
During my Reiki training that I began in 2015, I was also teaching my dying mother how to heal with Reiki as well. It became a beautiful connection because she was afraid of death, and I was attempting to get back more than what I was left with in my final evaluation. Reiki healing helps you keep your breathing to be centered to relieve stress and induce relaxation of the mind and body. You can attend sessions with a well established Reiki healer or you can do the lightwork yourself. You don’t need to have a psychic gift to be able to heal yourself. You can see a healer in person or work online. I actually completed half of the certification in person, and the other half online as COVID-19 sent us all spiraling into the virtual world. I happen to be a gifted Empath and yes with God’s gift I have been designed to heal others. Here are a few sentences from people I have been healing: “I suffer from anxiety and these sessions helped me to relax and feel rejuvenated”. Another person shared, “It was a healing, transformative experience; I definitely felt like I had a mind and body reset”. Another testimonial is: It was a beautiful experience, it completely turned my day around. Re-energized and was feeling at peace”. I’m more comfortable with in person healings but I do long distance healings when needed and this person knew within minutes that I had completed the session reporting an uplifting mood after suffering from a slight depression. I’m also healing thousands of children each year in my profession and I absolutely love it. They taught me how to survive. They taught me about unconditional love. They taught me how to never give up and keep adapting to the new ways of healthy living because generations change. Working with several spiritually gifted individuals who have years of experience in the enlightened path have given me the opportunity to heal. All of these beautiful souls contributed to the healthy state of mind that I am in today: Tracy Fluty from Elemental Mediums, Karen Roberts from New Beginnings, Lorry Salluzzi Reiki Master; Medium, Patti Negri Psychic medium, Cosmic Divine from Karma Connection, and Vicki Loubier from Divinely Aligned. I've also spoken with Chip Coffey who is a delightful soul, and Chris Flemming.
It was shared with me by a relative of mine to “never stop the energy work”. You have to put the love and energy into keeping yourself in the best state of mind or state of being as possible. While working in the Reiki practice, and even attending Reiki sessions it’s important to keep your body clear of toxins for the desired outcome which is pain management, peace, and happiness.
After a period of four years after my traumatic brain injury I was finally able to attempt to help my siblings take care of my parents who were dying at the same time slowly from massive complications from Diabetes. Mom's situation was far more concerning because she had congestive heart failure, failing kidneys, legs problems as well and needed round the clock care. The day I had to make the decision to put her in a nursing home and separate her from my father was the most heartbreaking thing I experienced. Dad spent all of his days sitting by her side at that nursing home which caused a lot of nurses and director phone calls to flood my phone on the daily. Dad was suffering from a lack of oxygen to his brain from a massive surgery he had in 2003 where his leg was supposed to be amputated but they were able to use a synthetic vein running from his leg to his heart. It gave him an extra 18 years but not without a cost physically.
The pandemic hit, and while my parents were in and out of the hospitals, nursing homes, we were not able to see them or be inside the buildings. My siblings and I were literally running in different directions keeping tab on and taking care of our parents. We had to stand outside in the cold, with our hands cupped around our face while we pressed our faces against a window to chat with them. This "in and out" of hospitalizations lasted for years but it was nearing the end when the Pandemic had reached it full threat. May 2021 I released my mother from the nursing home and brought her to my sister's house for Home Hospice. Dad came to visit and my brother was guarding him while Sis and I and my brother-in-law took care of Mom's dying needs. On day 11 of Home Hospice we noticed that none of us had heard from Dad in 12 hours. So I sent help from across the street and I got the shock of my life. As we were holding Mom's hand for 11 days straight praying over her, making calls, having visitors to say goodbye to give her a good journey into the spirit world.... that call.... my father fell into a Diabetic shock coma, fell and bumped his head and bled to death. They had a combined wake, with minimal attendance because of COVID. They even put my Dad in the wrong Urn and I could do nothing but just accept it.
Teaching Kindergarten students through the virtual world required over 100 hours of studying, classes, online learning just to be "efficient" in getting them interested, alert, and participating. That is when I started reaching out further and further with online classes. meetings. spiritual online classes sharing my story and people started to ask me to share it. You could spend a whole day with me and laugh and never know at all that all of these things have happened to me. I love being happy, and am most content loving everyone. But yes I have cried more than the average person in solitude. It's impossible not to when there is a trigger and trauma resurfaces. That's when you do the work to clear it, take the charge off of the trauma and keep going. It's not always easy. It can be, but sometimes it takes some hand holding for a brief period of time.
I'm not even listing all of the "in between traumas" that occurred just the major ones. Last but not least as it is extremely difficult again I got a divorce. The marriage had been failing for over 10 years and there was just never a time that I had a chance to exit. I paid for the divorce. I went back to teaching in person in the pandemic world and it was actually more difficult this time around. I absolutely love my job, and there's no other place I would be than right there to help hold their hand, tie their shoes, fix their masks, and educate them.
Recently the day before Thanksgiving I came in from sitting in the hot tub and my cat was laying on the floor gasping for air. No warning, I was trying to shake him and check his throat. I was helpless and just watched it unfold in my arms. That was the loudest I probably ever cried because it was the final straw. I couldn't imagine losing one more thing. I made sure to rach out to family, my psychologist, my gifted friends, just anyone I could to help gain composure again.
So the key is, always do the work to get back to the happy state. I did modern day medicine for 2 years (Percocet, Flexeril, and Xanax) during my TBI. I turned to homeopathy to get off those drugs and get a specified regiment of vitamins and supplements to help my adrenal system and heal the TBI. There's even a funny story that happened at the police station when I went to drop off all the unused drugs.
