You wake up in the morning and know right away what time it is: depression time! You want to turn over and sleep through the day, but you usually have to get up, if only to pee. If you’re lucky, your circumstances will force you to get up and start a structured day, like work, children, letting the dog out. It distracts you, which is good. If you’re unlucky, there is no distraction and another black day awaits you. If you don’t have a daily routine, the depression will get the chance to deepen more quickly.
The worst thing is when people say, “It’s all in your head.” They’re really saying, “You’re being childish,” or “You just need to think more positively”. If you are offered medication, chances are high that you will take it because you’re so glad that a solution is being offered. Many people feel better with antidepressants because it is an official recognition that there really is something going on! The recognition is very valuable, and the medication gives you temporary relief.
It’s Not in Your Head but in Your Heart!
Depression doesn’t disappear by itself; it has an origin! The trick is to listen to it! Not to what is in your head, but to what your heart is whispering! I believe that the origin of depression lies in 3 aspects of our humanity: 1. Our life path, 2. Our memories, and 3. Physical contamination or deficiency. With the MIR-Method we work on all of three causes so that you have a good chance of decreased depression.
1. Being off your life’s path.
The most important reason is that you are not following your path. Your life has little fulfillment and each day is pointless. What does it matter? Even if other people think you’ve got it all together, you can experience your life as being shallow. The outside looks good, but you are crying on the inside. You work on this with step 9 of the MIR-Method: “Clarify mission”.
2. Holding on to your past.
Whatever you try, you fall back into the “old me”. Memories from your youth, fear of embarrassment, fear of making mistakes, keep you in check. You’re afraid to take new steps, or automatically hear the voice in your head saying: “It’s not going to work,” “You’ll never be very successful,” “Leave the thinking to your brother”. You work on this with step
3: “Detach father. Detach mother” and with step 7: “Fulfill basic needs”.
3. Contamination and deficiencies in your body.
Your body has filled up with waste: unhealthy food additives, heavy metals, chemicals, drug residues, vaccinations, pesticides, etc. Over the years, your body has begun to function less optimally and your ability to think clearly has diminished. Because of the many waste products, your body doesn’t work properly. Deficiencies develop because the nutrition is not processed efficiently. A mineral deficiency is often a cause of depression! You get tired more easily, can’t think clearly and are less resilient when there are setbacks. This is what step 2 is all about: “Detox all toxicity.”
Instructions for the MIR-Method with Depression
If you have been depressed for more than 2 weeks, start carefully and do only step 5: “Supplement all shortages” and step 7: “Fulfill basic needs”. Do this for 2 weeks and then begin to do all 9 steps. Go to the instruction video and watch, starting at 20.22 minutes. There I explain more about starting with only step 5 and 7.
Always do all 9 steps!
I mentioned a few steps of the MIR-Method above, but it remains important that you always follow all 9 steps. Never leave out any of the steps because they all work in cooperation with each other!
The MIR-Method as a Tool: from Depression to Living From your Heart
One of the commonly heard reactions is that the MIR-Method answers the problem of depression! Slowly, bit-by-bit, you release yourself from your past, cleanse your body, begin to think clearly and your life path reveals itself. You become aware with every decision: “Is this what I really want?” and, as a result, start to live from your heart! It is amazing what happens to people after following the MIR-Method for a minimum of 4 weeks. My wish for you is that you connect with your heart again and that your life is once again full of activity. I’m looking forward to your life path!
Question for you
“You weren’t born for much.” “If you haven’t got something nice to say don’t say anything at all.” These are the kind of family sayings which can hinder you from living life to the fullest.
What saying does your family have? Or, other people’s families? Let me know below!
