Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Spiritual Purpose of Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Jhendi, about depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. First they ask if there’s a spiritual purpose for these issues.

The Council says there is always a spiritual reason for experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD and it is always pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes in spirit you decide to experience these and see how you can turn them around in your human life. Sometimes you volunteer to go through these to have the people around you learn compassion and patience from this experience. And sometimes it’s to start a group or organization that works to bring understanding and change to these issues.

Jhendi says if we’re supposed to learn from these issues, does taking medication affect our learning since we get through the issue with pills rather than working through the problems on our own. This is a very interesting question.

The Council says if you get relief from medication you can take it. When you’re in a happier state you’re able to work through your problems. Many people need some sort of therapy to talk to a professional about what they’re experiencing. The Council says not to take medication and assume it’s sufficient by itself. The medication will ease you enough to deal with what comes up for you and show you how to handle it.

The Council recommends always taking the time, even if it’s a couple minutes a day, to meditate. And when they say, meditate, they mean that all you have to do is ask for the vibration of love to come into your life and find two things every day to be grateful for.

Listen to our entire 3-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jhendi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

  2. Just wanted to share that during a hypnotherapy session, when I was communicating with my son’s spirit, he told me that he’s here to help teach me about spirit and I’m here to help teach him about being human. I took it to mean that he’s here to help me reconnect with my heart (learn how to choose love) and as his parent, I’m here to teach him what he needs to make it in the world. He’s been one of my biggest teachers.

  3. Hi, Susan. We imagine your son is teaching you all kinds of things, and that’s part of what he came to do. It’s good when he’s able to have compassion for himself and realize his panic attacks aren’t his fault. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  5. I can see how my son’s experiencing these same things is teaching me compassion and understanding. And he’s learning to feel compassion toward himself as he realizes that having panic attacks is a brain reaction, and it’s not his fault.

  6. I’ve spent the last two weeks helping some family members deal with exactly these problems. What synchronicity to discover this post today. Thank you for the wise words – they came at just the right time for me. Jan x
