You maybe depressed or stressed
It’s okay we have all been there at sometime.
I worked in a very stressful workplace environment and found myself the target of bulling and harassment. I was tired all the time, not sleeping, unproductive, and certainly had no clarity or peace of mind. I didn’t want to go out the front door. I cried a lot basically I gave up I couldn’t see the point. Because I was on work cover I got sent to see a psychologist who did not get me at all. In fact every time I came a way from seeing him I would be in tears. I told him I could see colours around people stupid thing to do really but I was so vulnerable. Lucky I didn’t end up in the mental health unit I was working in.
One of the things I learnt from him though was that sensitive people should not be working in really stressful environments.
- I started walking out in nature round a lake near us. I would sit and watch the ducks.
- I meditated and talk to my guide (didn’t tell the psychologist that though).
- I count my blessings that I have these abilities as they helped me through this period.
Learning meditation, relaxation techniques, and positive psychology, was a lifesaver for me and I could not imagine my life without them now.
My friend convinced me to go and do a transpersonal counselling course with her which was the best thing I ever did. I always told her that if I could find something that was close to Spiritual Psychology I would go. Transpersonal Counselling is.

Don’t be afraid to go and see someone and get some professional help. Find someone who gets you and can help. It won’t work if you don’t like them. Keep looking. There will be someone there.
There is no shame in it.

Often the symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and grief are due to us living our lives out of balance and needing to take responsibility for our own choices in life. But it can all be changed. There is always hope, if you are willing to make a positive difference in your life.
