Can I Manifest If I Have a Mental Illness That Prevents Me From Feeling Joy?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Marylander, who asks: How does manifesting work if you have a mental illness that prevents you from feeling joy or staying in a good state?

The Council asks if Marylander is never in a vibration of joy? Do you never feel a moment of peace, or love, or happiness, or something that interests you and takes your mind away from sadness? Look for these moments and hang onto them as long as you can.

You can manifest when you’re sad or depressed, but it takes a longer time. If you can’t feel the joy you need to feel to manifest what you want into your reality, then try believing it’s somewhere within you. Look for pictures that represent something you’d like. Make a scrapbook. Look at these pictures every day and imagine how nice it would be to manifest what these pictures represent. This will make your energy a little lighter. You can do this.

Marylander says as a depressed person their emotions are mostly negative. They don’t feel they can control this and medicine makes things worse. The Council recommends becoming very aware of what you feel and then see what you’re thinking to bring this feeling in. Identify your thoughts and the feelings that come from these thoughts. It’s not always easy to come out of feeling down. What’s the opposite of what you’re thinking? What would you like? Make it up. Pretend.

When you want to change something in your life, be aware of what it is. Be aware of how you feel and how you’d like it to be. If you can get a picture in your mind of what you desire, that picture goes out into the universe and tells the universe what you desire. Even when you’re down you can look at a picture and perhaps it will change how you feel a little bit.

The Council says that because you feel you can’t create, they’re here to tell you you can still create. There will be moments of joy. There will be pictures to look at and wonder what it would be like to live like the pictures. This is the way you begin to manifest.

Marylander says there were two people they wanted to be with and they feel guilty they didn’t attract them as a partner. And they wonder if they were able to be more positive, would they have manifested these relationships?

The Council says if the relationship didn’t happen, what kind of feelings did it leave you with? Were you able to get past the “nobody loves me” phase and get to, “this is something I wanted. It didn’t work out. We must have created the possibility before we came into this lifetime. Let me look again and see what else is coming into my reality.” In other words, by focusing on aspects of the relationship that worked, they don’t have to attract the same person, but someone with the qualities you desire.

Marylander says they don’t feel capable of having someone be with them and The Council says this is the main problem. You have to change your thoughts. You are capable of having someone you desire be with you. You have to think of bringing in the right person for you with the qualities you want. And The Council asks what Marylander is bringing to the relationship? When you begin to think of “us” (you and someone else), the energy changes to help you create the someone else.

Be excited about the possibility of these relationships, but if they didn’t work out it was agreed upon in spirit. Your belief system for this lifetime was to become a stronger person, was to let go of doubts, and always know you can create something better than what you’ve experienced. And The Council adds this guidance is for everyone.

Marylander says they’re abandoned and alone. And The Council says how about thinking you’re in a state of creating the perfect partner for yourself. What would I like in this new person? And they suggest Marylander forget the idea of being abandoned and alone.

Marylander asks if it’s pointless to pray when they’re feeling abandoned and alone. The Council says it’s good to pray if you pray with positive thoughts. Examples include: Dear God, please help me. I know you will. I just need to be a little patient. Dear angels, bring the right person to me. I know you’re already doing it, I have to be ready to receive it.

The Council closes by saying the only thing that’s preventing Marylander from manifesting is themself and how they focus their thoughts. The point of being depressed is to learn how to bring love into the depression and to turn it around. And The Council adds to be patient with yourself.

  1. Thank you for your answer, Council. It makes sense that I could create things even being depressed, and I think I do create things, it’s just it’s the small things that I manifest ok, the bigger things I have so much difficulty manifesting. Being borderline I think the victim mentality really, really messes me up. It’s easy to fall into a pattern in which everything and everyone is against me. And my emotions are all over the place and I can really destroy things easily when I am in a crisis mode.

    I was wondering if I could ask an additional question to the Council, if you have the time. I was wondering why is it that I was so attracted to L. I can’t say for what they felt, but I was so needy/obsessed to have them in my life that it became very unhealthy. Even to this day, I have to remind myself very hard that even though I felt like I needed them so desperately, they are their own person and did not want to be with me, and that they do not owe me anything. I am not their victim, but I do feel like one. I feel like L stole my chance of being happy. As I mentioned, I even prayed to their soul to ask them to please, just be with me (which clearly didn’t work). I even tried some energy work to have them come to me, but also didn’t work. It confuses me because none of these feelings make any sense. I don’t know why I feel them. I don’t understand why I have such a huge connection with someone but for it to be so one-sided (as far as I know), and for it to not go anywhere. I don’t even understand why it was so strong in the first place. I can’t see any positive outcome from this situation. Can you help me with this?

    Thank you.
