    Wow, what a beautiful talk. Not only was her story about the mama duck heartbreaking and moving, but the science behind alpha waves and meditation being the same as the earths crust was fascinating.

    Spiritually depression is stuffed anger that someone is not getting what they want and it is not going their way. The anger is stopping the love of the universe from manifesting in your life. When you release the anger and come into gratitude about your life, the the universe is free to bring it to you. We stop our own gifts by not choosing to be happy and see that awe are living in love in us and around us "today". Depression is wanting from the past. Nothing can manifest from history it is not real any more. We only have today which is reality. In the daily awareness of now, presence of love, comes our gifts. They are there waiting for us when we are in the moment, as gift.

    Wow! No one calls me. No one reaches out to me. No one showed up the day I lost my child. In fact people showed up 4 days after. There reasons. I can't get off work. Our family is going out of town, sorry Bridgette, but we can't sit with you. Was it for me to understand that ok these people said they loved me and my kids but they weren't my blood family. Well, I didn't get support from my own family. They all believe and said I deserve to suffer and they expressed, we just don't have the time Bridgette. Tell me what you think you would think. How would you feel. To see that you are not worth no one's time or concern because they hold against you their versional description of who they think you were to be. I never lived up to these peoples expectations of me and some of them mocked me to say. All my destruction was my fault. What adds on to me believing that if I don't walk so many steps and breathe so many breaths and how many times I must do something to assure all would be OK if I do these routines. No one checks on me. Not self pity of this. It is just clear awareness I have known. I am not of any significant part of anyone's life. I have concluded how I don't fit in here. So, I stay away because humans have showed me. I never mattered to them because I have a voice of my own and I don't conform when I do not feel safety or security in the connections of who is in my life. Lessons before I go. Lessons before I go. Lessons before I leave.

    As someone who has suffered from depression twice, this deeply sincere and emotional talk truly resonated with me. The one thing that helped me trudge through those swampy waters was love -the unconditional love I received from my family and my friends, the love I had to give back to them and to others. For me that was the light on the other side of the door, that light on the edge of the swamp. I can't say now I'm spiritually elevated. What I can say is I've been there, I know how much it hurts, and I don't wanna go back.
    Be there for those you love when they most need you.

    I can now say i forced myself for around 10 years to try and get pregnant and it was in this time i suffered most. I knew it wasnt what i "wanted" but what i thought i "should" do as a woman. Im so thankful that i realised that i was being very selfish. I was ignoring my own gut instincts which caused my depression. It made me realise that when im using the words "want" and "should" to question myself. In my opinion, telling yourself anything that includes any of these 2 words will cause suffering. I dont feel in this ladies story there is anything "spiritual" going on but more of the "ego" at work in my opinion. we all have our own choices to make and mine to stop trying worked for me 🙂. To anyone that is going through the rollercoaster of trying to concieve i wish you the biggest amount of love and luck possible ❤

    I'm not saying this to be rude or anything but honestly I never understood why people want kids. I just have a totally different point of view I guess I don't see the point what do they do for you? I just don't understand? I'm really not trying to say that they don't matter or are not important I just don't see why everyone wants kids and what they do for you I'm confused

    I believe that Life is supposed to be magical; that is full meaning. Living any less than an inspired life can lead many of us to all kinds of levels of depression. I've been there for a long while, and am only beginning to understand what it was all about. Ultimately, I don't believe it is what has happened to me that made me depressed, but it was because of the perceived meaningless of my suffering that I was stuck in depression. I was my inability to see my suffering through and continue on the journey to where it was leading me that prolonged it. "The more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt”. I realized that I needed to be brave and face my fears and whatever life has put on my path. Rainer Marie Rilke's quote "“Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.” became like a mantra to me.
    Because after all, life is always calling us back into its magical dimension, into the journey, where our greater soul resides waiting to be embodied. When is it finally time to leave the dark night of the soul and welcome the light shining within that seeks to burn away the old and brighten the path to inspired being? Always now. But we must be brave enough to step through the door into the unknown where all the magic may happen.
    The funny thing is that we often hold onto our old ways of viewing life, and ways of being, despite the fact that it imprisons us in an egoic world of our own creation. We are often kept in chains by our self-doubt self-blame, self-centeredness, and self-pity or our blaming of others and inability to forgive and let go. All the while, the greater world, the divine world, Love's world is calling us to step through its door and awaken to participate as a spiritually-connected being in its sacred reality. What is the sound of your soul's call? What is knocking at your door?
    "So when you hear the knock, consider the invitation... the hand that takes from inside the darkness, when we walk through the door, is the hand that invites, that guides, and ultimately gives. On the other side of the door is the inspired life brought to us by the presence."

    I started having experiences like this lady, signs and such that came during a time of depression at breaking up with my last girlfriend that I have had, 20 years ago. I stopped getting good signs when I gained so much weight from the medication I was forced onto. I think now that I contemplate it, that I must learn to hear good signs when sedentary, because it often happened when I walked alone searching for meaning and god and real life fairytale. Back then too I was serving the world, the medications side effects have hurt me so much that I lost too much faith to do much of anything. Maybe the lesson is that I need a strong stoicism because sometimes things go wrong and that is the worst time to give up. Emotional pain and loss of dignity can be tiring. I do not know if that is excess pride but it feels like medium level torture sometimes. The service to the world I was attempting 20 years ago was a sort of utopia wiki website that was a part wiki, part public forum, totally dedicated to a better world in any subject or field you could name as well as mixed disciplines. I never ended up completing it.

    Parenting is love. He wanted a mom. We wanted a child. Love is what would make us a family.
    Depression as porthole... to a world of love, warmth, light, inspiration, spiritual passage.
    depression not as disease. it can be an illness to be medicated.
    and it can be core to our endowment and core to our development.
    Depression and spirituality/spiritual awakening are two sides of one door.
    Sweat lodge, lakota of south dakota
    "Thick cortexes and back of head gave off alpha wavelength, also found on backs of heads of meditating monks.... also called shuman's constant, the wavelength at the earth's crust. The spiritually engaged brain vibrates at the frequency of the earth's crust. This matrix, this sacred filed that is in us, through us, around us, and covers all living earth. This is the world in which we live. A world in which we are never alone. A world where there is guidance, trailangels, helpers and healers. And through the field of love, comes just the person, the wise generous animals, our sisters and brothers. and in fact, we can no longer begin to think that we are actors on an inert stage, but that the world is alive and infused with that sacred field we might measure as high amplitude alpha. Knowing this we live into an inspired life. A life of meaning that is not one that we create, but meaning that is TRULY in the fabric of the world. We live an inspired life. Isaih, for one world, Lakota for those who helped find him.
    So when you hear the knock, consider the invitation. What sounds shocking and as if the hand that takes from inside the darkness... When we walk through the door is the hand that inivtes, that guides, and ultimately gives. On the other side of the door is the inspired life, brought to us by the Presence."

    The only way we can find ourselves is to have lost ourselves first. In my own experience of having suffered with manic depression, I never would have stepped through the door of an awakening with out it. Dont think of depression as a bad or negative thing, but as a form of warning to raise your vibrations. I found the best way to do this was by changing my perceptions of the world around me.
    Instead of focusing on what we perceive to bad in the world and our lives I deliberately looked for the good. I looked in the mirror every morning and smiled and said today is a great day.
    You can raise the frequency you operate on by,
    Showering in the morning,
    Cleaning our teeth,
    Putting on fresh clothes,
    Planning our day, have a plan B,
    Walking in nature,
    Observing life-free from judgment,
    Steering clear of negative people,
    Not creating drama through thought,
    Not engaging in other peoples drama,
    Less time in a tv and more you time,
    Read books relevant for you moving forward,
    Learn how to become emotionally aware and emotionally intelligent and monitor and manage how you feel.
    Keeping ourselves free from abusing substances,
    By not being afraid of asking for help, as your higher power to guide you and ask your higher power to make you aware of the things it puts in front for you to be able to to step onto a new path. Start observing whats going on in your life, stop observing others, there is nothing to be gained from that. We are all on an individual journey first and foremost so I would advice people to start your focus there. Peace and love to all, you will find the way through the door, awareness holds the key.

    Be very careful here. Other human beings do not exist for the purpose of healing or serving us. What an awful responsibility to attach to a child.

Tread carefully with each sacred soul and strive toward selfless love. Peace.

    I suffered depression during my AWAKENING time I was so disappointed in the secret societies hiding the truth by lying to all of us about the existence of other races to keep us in the dark they were using lots of tricks the big one is the illusion of money and fantasy of glamour and materialistic and fancy places. Most of them fear our ascension because they want to keep on living their meaningless illusion. GII JR

    If you struggle to believe in the power of God, take a deep breath and listen again to this opportunity to not only hear about the power but to experience the power in a direct and sincere revelation. Lisa has held to her thread of belief until it now begins to manifest in her very being as she attempts to share something so personal and so powerful; no words exist to express it but her voice quivers to point in the direction you would forever benefit to go.

    You are an angel on the path -- in deep gratitude I have shared this talk with any and all in my sphere who might need your message. Having experienced the crushing weight of despair, feeling as though there was no way to even get a leg up to pull myself out -- I have experienced things beyond normal explanation. This has happened for me several times in the course of my life - most recently after the deaths of my grandsons. When visiting the site of the crash, barely able to stand, or to breathe, a most amazing thing happened -- I felt a great wave come up from the ground just in front of the trees, as if I were standing in the surf and a tremendous wave washed over me. I nearly lost my balance. It felt like Love! A second wave then came from the trees themselves. Overwhelmed, I looked to my right where three teenage girls were sitting quietly on the ground. They were crying. I approached them and told them I was Grammy to Chance and Lance -- as the first girl hugged me, the wave came again. How wonderful to know the support that comes as a message of Love from angels! Thank you for sharing your story.

    This talk is one of the best on Tedx as she validates depression and explains in part what its about! Unusual in itself, most talks these days press how to AVOID depression, not how to make the most of it, or look into its meaning and magic in it altho granted painful. A life without pain wouldn't be much of a life and would perhaps be rather superficial to say the least! Depression/ spirituality two sides of the same coin - love it!

    I think her lecture makes sense.
    I had been depressive from age 11 to 29.5( The first half of 2017 was the most depressive time of my life) , then I had my awakening in mid 2017...Bliss\pure joy\endless love kept coming out of my heart with no reasons....I was literally living in heaven for thousands of hours...
    I have a good childhood memory, no abuse, no trauma whatsoever, I have kind-hearted,loving parents. Now, I know I had been experiencing the so-called 'ascension symptoms' since age 11, and this was the reason for my sleeping problems/fatigue and hyper-sensitivity towards sounds..
