Sparks of InsightThere is only one person that you can change and that’s yourself. It would be nice if you could change the way others behaved and thought. But you can’t. It’s a hard lesson to learn. You can’t keep others from sabotaging their lives, hurting themselves, or how they feel about you. The one thing you can do is change the kind of treatment you’ll accept. If you’re being criticized, hurt, abused, or in some other destructive way, you have the ability to say “no” to it. Set boundaries, and establish consequences if they violate your limits. Even if the decision is to no longer associate with them. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. You may not be able to change another person, but you can change the way they treat you.

Question about affirmationsQuestion: I’ve been taking medication for depression, but what are some more holistic ways for me to deal with it?

Answer:  I’m not a medical doctor nor psychologist, so I can only give you some suggestions. But first, I completely support taking medication to start feeling better. Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind said something to the effect of, “You might as well feel better while you’re getting better.” The medication will give extra energy to help think straight. And until that happens, healing can’t happen.

Studies are finding that much of depression is caused by the way we think, and what we think about. A thought always precedes a feeling, even if the thought is a fraction of a second long. It can create a downward spiral that results in depression. Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy by David Burns, M.D. has exercises to help you turn those thoughts around. Learned Optimism by Martin Seligman, Ph.D. discusses much of the research into this.

Walking or exercise is also effective to improve one’s mood. They’ve done studies that have shown that walking 30 minutes a day 3-5 times a week (depending on the study) is as effective, by itself, as antidepressants. But when you’re feeling so down, you can’t get yourself moving, which is why medication can help jumpstart you.

One more suggestion, do some journaling. It’s been found to help depression when you write about your feelings about the traumatic events of your life. Not just about the experience, but your feelings about it. By itself, it doesn’t help PTSD a lot, but it does help. Write 15-20 minutes on at least four consecutive days, preferably in the morning.

A final note, STOP MENTALLY BEATING YOURSELF UP! If you notice you’re getting negative, so what? Condemning yourself for it will just give it more energy. Start writing down what your negative thoughts are, and then you can see if they’re valid.

Affirmation:
“The Universe fills my being at all times. It provides me with everything necessary for the complete expression of a life of joy, harmony, health and abundance. I welcome all the good of the Universe.”
Sparks of Insight

Commentary:
The Universe, Infinite or whatever name you use for God is all good. It’s the substance that makes up your life. But it’s like a banquet. You have to reach out, accept, put the food on your plate and eat it. You can’t be force-fed the good of life. When you begin to recognize that you are being provided everything you need, then you’re beginning to accept Life’s bounty.

Stake Your Claim: Exploring the Gold Mine Within
By Emmet Fox

This book was the first one by this author that I ever read. The practical, spiritual advice from it made him one of my favorite metaphysical authors. Dr. Fox was a well-known spiritual teacher and his insight is timeless.

The title of the book refers to staking your claim to the good that you want in your life. Short, to the point essays about peace, prosperity, empowerment and much more form the chapters of this book. Each essay addresses a different subject, and stands alone in its wisdom.

The counsel in this book will uplift your thoughts, help you gain a more positive, spiritual outlook on what ever difficulty you might be experiencing, and help you live a richer, fuller life. Because of the short essays, this is the perfect book to read in the morning to get the day started right, just before going to sleep, or at any other time when you only have a few minutes to spare.

Sparks of Insight“There is a power for good in the Universe, and I am a part of it. Good is present and active in all of my affairs. I open my mind and heart to allow this good to flow through me, to prosper and harmonize every circumstance in my life.”

The only thing that holds back the good of the Universe is your thought. You either don’t believe it can happen, focus on the negative, or you hold onto negative thoughts about yourself and others. Once the way is open, good flows naturally through you and your life. As you affirm that you are willing to open to it, you begin to dissolve the impediments because you’ve changed your focus. And you experience more joy, harmony and abundance in your life.

Sparks of InsightAre you limiting your acceptance of good? If so, you’re restricting the flow of God/Universe in your life. You are a part of the Universe, as an individualized expression of It. And the Universe wants more good for Itself, since that’s the way it expresses Itself. Whatever good you desire is also a part of the Universe. So desiring more good, whether it’s prosperity, health, or peace in your life, means that you’re wanting to experience more of God/the Universe. Open your mind and heart to allowing more of the Universe, or good, coming into your life.
