I’ve been there…
By the beginning of 2020, I realized I was depressed and had been for a while. Not the usual situational depression that comes with life’s little set backs, that you buckle down and navigate through, but something deeper. It was like a vine slowly creeping up and choking me off over time. My moods were up and down, explosive anger, paralyzing frustration, fear and anxiety, and lots of hidden tears. And then March 2020 happened, a pandemic, and an overwhelming wave of relief washed over me. Of course, there was a new reason for anxiety and fear, but I finally felt I was being given the gift of healing; time. I relished each quiet day caring for myself, meditating, exercising, creating and reading.
I returned to work in mid-June 2020 as a mobile hairdresser for seniors and shut-ins, but quickly realized something was missing, it was ME, where had I gone. I was missing my own passion, my own reason to get up, and live, really live. By mid-September I started putting weight on, an insulating layer, protection and all the while slipping back into a deep depression. By the end of October, I’d put on almost 20 lbs. and no one had noticed, I was trying to be seen but my pain was invisible. I was terrified and desperately searching for an answer.
During the fall of 2020 I listened to multiple podcasts featuring Marisa Peer, Britain’s top therapist. I realized the universe was giving me a sign and I started following Marisa’s therapy method, RTT® (Rapid Transformational Therapy) noticing little shifts in my life. So, I registered and started on-line training to become an RTT® (Rapid Transformation Therapy) Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotist.
What I’ve learned is that when depression and anxiety settle in to tell you loud and clear, you are not taking care of yourself, YOU BETTER STOP AND LISTEN. I’ve always had a positive outlook while riding the waves of normal situational depression that life hands you but nothing prepared me for the depth of depression I’d settled for. By understanding the beliefs my mind had created over time, RTT® has allowed me the freedom to choose again, to choose better and to choose healthier beliefs. I still have moments of anxiety and mood shifts but they are very, very rare and easy to defuse, and a normal part of life. I sleep now, deep healing sleep, something I hadn’t done in years. And I get up feeling grateful and filled with joy.
I invite you to be curious, to explore and go deeper inside yourself so that you too can discover more of your own potential, purpose and passion.
