Do You Suffer from High Functioning Depression?

..........

Are you a creative and productive woman that struggles with anxiety and depression behind the scenes? Do you feel even more depressed when you are not working, giving, doing and creating? Do you hold yourself to the highest standard of perfection and achievement, as a way to stave off emotional discomfort, sadness, fear or anger?

You do not need to live and work with an ongoing undercurrent of anxiety and depression that hides unhealed shame, guilt, grief, fear or anger. This is your emotional shadow longing to be acknowledged, understood, loved and transformed into your finest gifts and talents, so that you can live at a higher frequency of freedom and joy. 

If you are feeling repressed, depressed and accumulated with unprocessed emotions, I offer insightful self-expression practices to help you to release discordant emotional energies on a daily basis. When you make a small effort to express your emotional truth every day, your depression will lift, and you will become the amazing intuitive life creator that you are meant to be!

UNVEILING YOUR SHADOW

As children, we learned which behaviours caused approval and disapproval from family, teachers, and friends. We developed the sides of ourselves that were acceptable and repressed what was not. This formed our idealized self and its opposite shadow.

HEART MEDITATION

Did you know that it is possible to open your heart simply by meditating upon it? Typically, as we go through life, the innocent unconditional love that shone so brightly when we were younger becomes jaded, cynical or dull. In order to live a full and passionate life, you will need to recover your heart.

DEPRESSION TO ELATION
