Why Am I Experiencing Life Long Depression and Anxiety?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Teri, who asks why her higher self chose to experience chronic lifelong depression and anxiety? Teri says that despite working very hard to be happier, to love myself, and to find meaning and purpose in my existence, I mostly feel ambivalent about being on Earth in a physical body. I never felt I was living a life that suits me. Life feels like just surviving.

The Council says if Teri has ambivalent thoughts about being here and feels like she’s just surviving, the energy your thoughts are putting out will attract more of these situations to you and make what you experience be not enough, sad, and depressed. Depression usually occurs when you don’t understand what’s going on with your thoughts and what you’re allowing yourself to create. There’s confusion about the direction you want your life to go in. Trying to live a life that’ll give you what you want isn’t happening because you don’t understand your depression is really being caused by you.

Stop and ask yourself what you’re thinking about when you feel depressed. Ask yourself why you’re not moving forward, and meditate on this for as long as it takes you to understand that your depression and anxiety are caused by no one but you. The reason you want to experience this depression is that you want to change it. You are in control of the direction your life goes.

In spirit you wanted to experience going off course so you’d read a lot OF books to bring you back on course. Not so much self-help books, but reading books on miracles that happen to people, like Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani. You have experienced miracles in other lifetimes. In your current lifetime you went deeper into the depression and anxiety to change these, but also to show the people around you how to accomplish these changes.

Read books about people that have changed their lives and how they go about it. Read books about angels. These books will give you the push you need to begin to change your energy. Then more things will come into your life that you desire. As you become aware of this energy change you’ll create better and better situations.

Teri says her big dreams and desires are a constant source of longing and suffering because they’re unlikely to come true. The Council says thinking your dreams and desires won’t come true will all by itself keep your dreams from coming true. You have to learn to change these thoughts to where you’re dreams will come true even if you don’t know how they’ll come true.

Teri says she’s spent over 30 years trying to live by spiritual principles. She’s been focusing on and feeling ease and joy, trying to change self-limiting and negative beliefs, trying to manifest her dreams, practicing appreciation, and being of service to others. But this doesn’t change the fact that I still feel depressed and disappointed with myself and the life I’m living.

The Council asks if Teri experienced joy when she was doing these things, or were you doing them with the idea they’d change your life? When you do for others you should get a natural feeling of joy. If you continue to do for others and practice positive thoughts, focus on how you feel. Look for the joy. The more you can do where you feel joy, the easier it’ll become to feel better and better.

Teri says it’s like there’s a clear limit to my potential here on Earth. And The Council says it’s only the limit that you create with your beliefs and your thoughts.

Teri asks if it’s possible that her soul simply wanted to have the experience of hating her life? And The Council says a soul never wants to experience hating it’s life. Your soul goes into a reality and creates things that are challenging with the thought that it will be interesting. I’ll find a way to change this and I’ll feel love again. I’ll find a way to bring love into this reality.

You came into this life to have the challenge of depression and anxiety so you could have the experience of changing it to love. And every time you experience changing something that was difficult for you, the energy goes out to help others who also need to change something difficult.

Overcoming Anxiety to Find My Life Purpose

This post is inspired by a reader named Jim, who says he’s struggled with obsessive-compulsive disorder most of his life and asks The Council how he can have less worry and anxiety in his life.

The Council explains that when you know who you truly are, there is nothing to worry about. They ask if Jim understands he is a spiritual being in a human body, and they explain that when he takes his mind away from worry and anxiety and changes the focus of his thoughts to better feeling ones, his life will begin to change for the better. What Jim chooses to focus on will bring him peace of mind.

The Council encourages Jim to have more hope, focus on peacefulness, love, gratitude, the positive aspects of what’s going on, and looking for miracles happening in his life. Concentrate on the support he would get from spirits in human form and in the spiritual world. When Jim can begin thinking about these things his life will improve.

Jim also says he’s struggled with finding his true purpose in this lifetime. The Council says one of the purposes he wants to experience is joy and to have child-like experiences throughout his lifetime, even as an adult. They suggest Jim have a career around children to hear their laughter and join in with them. That is what he wanted to experience.

The Council’s parting advice to Jim is to do the work and he will succeed. Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jim and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Want miracles in your life?

In spirit, you know you have the power to create all you desire.

In your physical experience it’s easy to forget this.

Now is the time for remembering — remembering who you really are.

You are the miracle in your life.”
