Are you feeling "depressed". Lately I have had some thoughts playing around my head regarding depression, love, and gratitude.
Why do we feel DEPRESSED?
When we take a good look at the word 'DEPRESSED' we will notice a few words and thoughts ... First understand that you are soul forever growing and expanding. Expanding in consciousness and understanding. It wants to be free and free to be EXPRESSED.
When we are in DEPRESSION what we are doing is "deep pressing in" our souls, drawing into ourselves. Our soul can thus not expand and grow. It is REPRESSED, COMPRESSED, trying to fit into a mold that no longer fits it. We feel uptight, choked and constricted. We feel SUPPRESSED, down, pushed down and OPPRESSED. Try imagine fitting a free form expansive soul into a tight ball (we feel uptight) and to ''deep-press” it into a too small tiny space. No wonder our hearts feel so heavy. Get it? The soul does not want to fit into a tight mold.
When we grow, our soul expands and we are like casting the old mold away and free ourselves of that which tries to “pressed in”. When we are DEPRESSED, we are “deep-pressing” our expansive souls in a tiny heart space. We feel OPPRESSED. We have SUPPRESSED our soul expansion. Our souls and our being wishes to be EXPRESSED instead.
How do our souls expand and grow ? Well, from experience I feel depression occurs when one feels one is in a a very dark place where one can not seem to find the Light. We ask ourselves "where is all the love in this mess and situation?" We feel cut off from the Love and Light having tried to tuck our souls into our hearts. We say "I can't see any light in this dark situation!”
Our hearts is the place for the Love and Light but now we try and “deep-press'the soul into it. The soul instead wants to be free and expand! The soul is you. It does not want to be restricted or put into a tight mold. When we hide something in the dark it can not grow. Like a plant our soul yearns for light, loving care and warmth to grow. lt can not grow when it is hidden in the dark. It can not feel the warmth of the light and expand and grow. So the only way to heal from depression is allowing our hearts to open up again and allow the love and light to flow in again and let the soul take its' place again,free, expanded and expressed.
We have to open up our hearts and let our souls expand again by turning towards the Love and Light. The LOVE and Light is God-dess/Source/Divine/Spirit/ The Universe(whichever name you wish to use). Be quiet and allow the Divine to enter your heart again and really feel all that LOVE in your heart. Let it really fill you up again. It is only LOVE that heals and uplifts one from a state of depression. How do I feel that LOVE again in my heart you may ask? By choosing to be in a state of GRATITUDE I believe one opens to the flow of LOVE again. When we are DEPRESSED we forget to be in a state of love and gratitude.
Look at the word GRATITUDE. Several words popped out for me. The first was “gravitate”. To which feeling are you gravitating towards.Gravity is the thing that pulls us down, that is what depression does... pull us down in a very low vibration, feeling, mood and thoughts.
Another word I sensed from the word GRATITUDE is "ratio" and rate". Ratio is quantity, balance. How much ratio or balance of gratitude and love is there in your life? Is your ratio out of balance? Where is your ratio? To what extent? Where would you rate your life right now? Your feelings, your thoughts? Is your life feeling out of balance?
Another word I sensed from the word GRATITUDE is “attitude”. What attitude do you have towards life, and life's challenges, people and yourself?
Ever noticed that depressed people have such a negative attitude about almost everything? When depressed choose to change your attitude towards a problem, a challenge, a person, an event or yourself. Simply by choosing the attitude of gratitude, one can feel so much better. Choose to see the gain in every pain.
When looking at the emotional scale (rating different feelings) , one will find depression way at the bottom of the scale, and gratitude and then LOVE right at the top of the scale. Remain in the attitude of gratitude. Gratitude will elevate your mood, feelings and thoughts to greater altitudes, and you will not feel “down” or pulled down for so much longer. The attitude of gratitude lifts your soul to greater altitudes. Gratitude is the precursor for experiencing LOVE.
Do not "deep-press" your soul in your heart but allow your heart to open up to allow more love and light. Your heart is the place where LOVE resides. Open your heart to allow more love and light, for your soul to expand and grow. Do no hide your soul deep- pressed inside of you in the dark but allow the expression (not your de-pression, repression , suppression or oppression) of your soul .Your soul is who are longing to be expressed. Express not depress. Gravitate towards love. Find the gain in the pain.

The other day I was contemplating what it means to be a HUMAN BEING and these thoughts were given to me. Your thoughts are welcome....
First, HU is another word/sound for God - (or Spirit, Source, the Universe, which ever name you choose). (I don't have much knowledge of the origin of the word HU and welcome some input here).
God, Source, Spirit (HU) is withIN us, his Spirit dwells within us. We are a part of HU as much as HU is part of us.
We are thus HU (Godly) Spiritual beings, thus the word HUman.
"MAN" i was told comes from the word "manufacture", another word for co-creating with HU (God, Source, Spirt, Universe).
If we understand that together with HU we are co-creators, MANufacturing BEINGS, creating our lives, our realities, our life experiences. HU + MANufacture = HU MAN
We are not Human DOINGS, but BEINGS. This is present tense, the present time in the NOW, meaning you are forever changing even this very second., You are not your past, and you are not your future. You are only that what you choose now BEing. Present tense - NOW Being,
Also BE IN. Often we as humans try to seek and find outside of us for the resources and means to create (MANufacture) our lives. For e.g. we say "if only i have that and that i could do that and have that and be that and that". We tend to look outside of us, instead of withIN ourselves.
We are BEings, not DOings!
First BE what you want to have.
The resources do not lie outside of us, but withIN our BEing. Go within, find the HU source energy within you, the power to co-create and MANufacture with HU (God, or whatever name you choose).
I have also been shown that BE+IN+G = Be In God as God (Source Energy and Spirit) is within you. You are part of God and God is part of you. And within you God can BE.
I was also told MAN comes from the word MANage, (manage). That means we have the power to manage in our lives, to control our BEings in the now present moments.
We have the power to MANage our lives, our circumstances, our thoughts, our feelings and not powerless.

ASCENSION TO LOVE: What does it mean? (a channeled writing) (part 1 of 2 )
I am sure a lot of you have been wondering about the title “Soul to Soul, Our Ascension to Love”. What is it saying? What does it mean? It sounds rather mystical. In fact it is.
SOUL TO SOUL, what does it mean? When you meet someone this could have several meanings: how you relate to someone, how you communicate with somebody, how you connect with somebody, and our interactions with somebody When we connect soul to soul, we LOVE. We connect through LOVE. A lot of people want to experience and connect HEART to HEART, SOUL to SOUL through love and passion. Now when we connect deeply to someone from where do we mostly connect from, from where do we share our emotions? From the MIND or from the HEART? Soul to Soul is when you start connecting with another person, feel their emotions, their feelings, when we feel and understand their soul, and having a HEART TO HEART connection which is soul deep. Soul to Soul we ascend from personal love to Universal Love, from ego consciousness to soul consciousness, and to higher dimensions and altered states of consciousness.
What is SOUL?
Soul is our true essence and who we are. Our reason for existence.
We are NOT our bodies. We are not NOT our minds & thoughts (because that can change every day and every second). I know a lot of people say we are our MINDS, but this is not totally true.
Our SOULS is who we are and our SOUL is LOVE. LOVE is who we are.
Very interesting when you look at the word “SOUL”. S.O.U.L is an acronym for: SOW/SHOW Our Universal Love. Sowing our LOVE and Showing/Expressing our LOVE.
We are love. And the purpose of our soul is to sow and to show our personal and universal love.
What is EGO?
Very interesting. EGO is an acronym for: Everything/Everyone Going Off-Course/Off-Track.
Isn't that interesting? When we experience a problem, or feeling overwhelm, we are totally Going off-course or off-track from who we truly are and from our true purpose in life. We don't know why we exist or what our essence is. Remember love is our true purpose and our soul essence, the reason why we exist, When we operate from our ego consciousness we go off-track of we truly are and so we veer off our true soul purpose and mission.
When you draw a graph to represent our ascension from Ego consciousness to Soul consciousness, put Ego at the bottom, and Love at the top.
We are ascending from a place where Everything Going Off-Course/Off-Track, moving and ascending right to the top of the scale..... L.O.V.E = Living Our Very (true) Essence and Existence.
Ascending/Rising from EGO consciousness to SOUL consciousness, through and to LOVE
I truly believe that when somebody has a problem such as for example maybe anger, hate, depression that they are operating & manifesting from the EGO consciousness and not from the SOUL consciousness. What do I mean by that?
Via the Law of Attraction teachings we are taught that we create and manifest according to our thoughts and our feelings. If you are in a low vibration, we are then often attracting and manifesting things we do not actually want. And as we move up to a higher vibration, we are attracting and manifesting better things.
So for those who know a bit more on the Law of Attraction, there is what is called the “Emotional Guidance Scale” to determine from where and what vibrational level somebody is operating from.
Right at the bottom of the Emotional Guidance Scale one will find the feelings and emotions of maybe hate, anger, fear, depression. Right at the top you get feelings of peace, joy, love.
Now quite interesting. LOVE is right at the top of the Emotional Guidance Scale, at the highest vibration. At the bottom of the lower vibrations, one can actually write down “EGO” and right at the top one can write down “LOVE”.
Now on the topic of ascending and ascension. When we try and help and uplift someone, we are trying to help them ascend from the lower vibrational feelings up to the higher vibrational feelings & thoughts... through LOVE.
What is ASCENSION?
Ascension is also called the stairways to heaven. What we are actually doing is ascending from personal love to Universal Love. We are learning self love and love for others and to all that is. Love is the answer to everything. Love is our soul purpose. We are learning through our souls higher states of love and rising through dimensions and consciousness. The way to ascend is to uplift (ascend) from the EGO consciousness … through LOVE... to SOUL consciousness and to help find the LOVE for life and ourselves. * (more information regarding ascension and rising from personal love to Universal love and the secrets of universal love to follow in a separate article – part 2) *
What is LOVE?
L.O.V.E is an acronym for Living Our Very (true) Essence/Existence
LOVE is our purpose of our SOUL. The true (very) purpose as SOUL is to LOVE, to express and at ascend to higher levels of LOVE.
To LOVE is to Show and Sow Our Universal Love, that is our purpose. (more information on Universal Love to follow in a separate article – part 2).
What is SOUL talk? How do we resolve a problem? The only way we can resolve a problem is when we have a sense of what and who we and others are as soul beings with a soul purpose and to learn to love ourselves and others again. This I feel is the purpose of Soul to Soul, Our Ascension to Love. A lot of us I feel have the balance between heart and mind completely out of balance, and most often jump right to mind talk and mind power stuff without first having a soul to soul, heart to heart talk first. We have to maintain a fine balance between the two – heart and mind.
We should not start a mind talk before we start a soul talk and a soul to soul connection. Because when we or another is troubled, we are firstly coming from and are overwhelmed with..... EMOTIONS and are so overwhelmed with feelings, we can not even think clearly with the mind! Sometimes we might not be aware of what the emotions or thoughts are! To help uncover them we first go to the FEELINGS before we go to the MIND. Then we tend to them and try and change them. Soul is who we and others are. We are not our minds, nor our emotions, for they keep changing. Soul is eternal, though it changes and grows via expressions and thoughts about love. Now when we solve a problem, quite interesting... solving. So what you do to solve a problem is... SOULving. The key lies in a soul to soul connection, getting in touch soul to soul, heart to heart, with those we are interacting with, communicating with, connecting and relating to. FIRST soul to soul before you go to the mind. First identify the feelings in the heart and soul, and then analyze the feelings in the mind.
I know that via the Law of Attraction teachings one is often taught that “what a mans thinks, so is he”. This is only partly true. The original Scripture verse from Proverbs 23:7: “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.“ Remember that... “IN HIS HEART … so is he”. Heart... where is it? It is in the SOUL. SOUL is LOVE. LOVE is the answer to everything. LOVE is our purpose.
