Getting Rid of Depression After An Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Sarah, who had an abortion about a year earlier and feels it left her clinically depressed. She’s scared she’ll have depression for the rest of her life, but she’s not comfortable taking anti-depressants.

The Council starts by saying we experience depression when we’re not connected to who we truly are as spiritual beings, and they suggest meditating on this and focusing less on something being wrong with Sarah’s brain. And they add that as spiritual beings we understand we are here to find the joy in our experience, and because Sarah is so unhappy, this depression is pushing her to search for something more.

The Council recommends books and videos that teach how we plan our lifetimes as spiritual beings and they specifically suggest reading books by Robert Schwartz. And they say depression comes because Sarah doesn’t appreciate what she’s created for herself and the spirit she aborted. Many think of abortion as an ending of a life, but The Council says it’s a beginning because this soul is now free to have other experiences, including returning to Sarah in a future pregnancy.

The Council says Sarah had a spiritual contract with this aborted soul who wanted to experience what it was like to be part of an aborted pregnancy. This soul was not interested in experiencing a full term pregnancy but if Sarah wishes to move forward, this soul can return to her in a future pregnancy. And The Council says these two souls will have a closer bond because they experienced this abortion together.

The Council emphasizes there isn’t any need for Sarah to feel depressed about this abortion because everything went according to the way the two souls planned this, and there is great love between these two spirits, and great love in deciding what path to take next.

The Council encourages Sarah to look for books that connect her to spirit and past lives, and they recommend the books of Emmanuel by Pat Rodegast. They also encourage Sarah to do whatever it takes to get into the vibration of love and joy, and from this vibration she’ll be able to create her future the way she wants it to be.

The Council says this aborted soul has continually been sending Sarah love from the moment this abortion was planned in spirit and there is still a stream of love flowing from this soul to Sarah, helping her to get through this depression. The more Sarah is able to let this love in, the less she’ll need to concern herself with a relapse of depression.

The Council closes with a recommendation to look for little moments of love and joy from her spirit and the spirit of her aborted child to move her forward in this lifetime.

Listen to our entire 13-minute conversation  with The Council (below) to experience their full guidance for Sarah and the rest of us.

  1. Hi, Liz. As soon as we get a chance we’ll ask The Council about the pregnancy you terminated and post their response. In the meantime, feel free to read and listen to similar questions from other women and The Council’s answers for them. The Council says all pregnancy terminations are pre-planned in spirit and the soul of the terminated pregnancy has nothing but love for you. There is nothing to feel sorry about. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. I have really struggled with this as well. I had an abortion 11 years ago and for a long time I never felt any emotion about it. But it had an impact on my body. I could not have any intimate relationships after that. I also started losing my hair mysteriously. Only recently have I started to feel emotions which I have suppressed, deep sadness, anger, resentment, and so much guilt and shame. I don’t know how to tell the little one that I am sorry for aborting it, that I am sorry I was careless, and I am sorry for feeling resentment at having gone through the whole thing. Part of me feels like I am falling apart. I really would appreciate any guidance in this matter. I don’t’ know how to forgive myself and let go of this toxic mix of emotions
