Working our way up from one negative emotion to the next towards positive states – changes in negative emotions are a positive sign that we are healing anxiety.
Fear and anxiety (pent up energy that can be used in negative and positive ways).
Sadness and potentially depression (a sign of progress going beyond anxiety and revealing the truths behind the lower self, inner child.
Anger and irritability (a sign that there is now energy and intention to be used towards expression).
Bewilderment (a sign of emotional neutrality, more anxiety progress).
Calmness (just as the waves of an ocean subside, the fighting stops and genuine peace begins).
Surrender (to life and all its ups and downs, control is now seen as an act of the lower self while we are moving directly into alignment with our higher self).

Depression – Symptoms, Treatment and Prevention
Depression is a serious mood disorder that affects your thoughts, feelings and physical well-being. It is a treatable condition that can be helped with counseling, medicines and lifestyle changes. It is important to seek help at the earliest sign of depression because if left untreated, it can become more severe and last longer than usual.
Depression can affect anyone, but it is more common in women. This is probably because of changes in a woman’s hormone levels and other factors. Symptoms of depression vary from person to person, and can include feeling sad or hopeless for long periods of time and losing interest in most things.
Symptoms are usually present for more than two weeks, and can interfere with your daily life. They can cause you to feel sad, irritable or hopeless, and may lead to other problems, such as poor eating habits, a loss of interest in social activities and sleep disturbances.
If you have symptoms that are getting worse or if you think you might hurt yourself, call 911 right away to get emergency medical treatment. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 988.
Treatment for depression can be a combination of medications and psychotherapy, or it might involve medication alone. Medications called antidepressants increase the amount of chemical messengers (serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine) in your brain. Therapy helps you learn new ways to cope with stress and other factors that trigger your depression symptoms.
Your doctor can prescribe medications for you or recommend you see a mental health specialist. They can help you decide which medication will work best for you and can prescribe a few different ones until you find one that works.
The right medication can make you feel much better. However, it is not a cure for depression, and it can take several months to see results. If you are taking other medicines or herbs, it’s a good idea to tell your doctor about this.
Keeping up with regular exercise and a healthy diet can also help with depression. Try to avoid too much caffeine, alcohol and drugs as these can aggravate your depression.
Talking to people who are close to you, such as family members, friends and work colleagues can also help. Sharing your symptoms and experiences with these people will help you to gain support and understanding, as well as give them a chance to offer encouragement and positive feedback.
Some forms of treatment for depression require you to live in a hospital or residential facility. These types of treatment are used if your depression is so severe that it causes problems with your everyday life or puts you at risk of harming yourself.
There are many kinds of treatments for depression, but all of them work by changing how your brain thinks and feels. Your doctor will help you choose the best type of treatment to help you overcome your depression and get back to living a happy, fulfilling life.
