Nature’s Anti-Depressant 💊

Daily Motivation 355


At the end of every year I like to think of a word that will set the tone for the forthcoming year. This years word, that was decided around November last year, is ‘Lightness’.

Back then it was a sense of something to come
A lifting of density that I could feel happening soon
And I spent the first few months of 2017 in a state of expectancy

Everyday in meditation I have stepped further and further away from the drama of ‘life’ and stabilised myself as the observer. And it does take time and patience, it doesn’t happen overnight but if you persevere then your day to day living becomes more and more ‘light’.

In my session with Carol (our Quantum Healer at IG) last week the words,

“It doesn’t matter”

Kept coming up
Meaning, that you just don’t NEED to get involved with the drama

Someone disagrees with something that I’ve said? It doesn’t matter
My business partner wants to do things a different way? It doesn’t matter
The kids want to eat something different than me? It doesn’t matter
I feel the urge to have a drink / cigarette / cake? It doesn’t matter
It’s cloudy today – It doesn’t matter
My yoga class got cancelled? It doesn’t matter
The shop ran out of my favourite x y z? It doesn’t matter

Carol and I laughed so much as this concept has hit both of us at the same time


And I’m not being flippant or non caring, it’s about what is happening inside the snow globe being a moment in time, a dot on the landscape of your life, WHY ARE YOU WORRYING SO MUCH? This dilemma / situation will be over soon anyway, so what was the point in getting so stressed? It’s like not being able to forgive someone who has wronged you; the ONLY person you are harming is yourself, as the other has no idea what you are thinking or how you are coping. YOU have a choice.

So this year I have let go
No more drama
And the lightness is beautiful
I cannot tell you how freeing it is

Nothing can touch me because I know that the circumstances I find myself in are transitory, nothing remains, it is all in constant flux.

We try to recreate this state with pharmaceutical drugs
They are called anti-depressants
What they do is numb you to life, so that you can’t feel the lows. Unfortunately this man-made drug also knocks away the highs and you are left with a more mediocre mood and life.

So why are we not all clambering for this?
The constant bliss state that my practice has led me to?
Why do many of us continue to believe that a small daily pill will get us there?

It doesn’t matter who you are, we all will experience the highs and lows of life. But you DO have a choice as to how you respond.

We are looking at this in the QS online programme
And it happens naturally through meditation
Like the rapids suddenly becoming calm
We see clearly
Our path is obvious

And if you don’t know the next step
Then meditate!
And I have launched some brand new material this week to help you find that connection. See below for information about my new meditation downloads…..

In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:

Just to wish the 4 people on the retreat this week all the best.
