What you post affects everyone in a good or bad way

Social Media has such a large impact on our lives now that we are not even conscious of it anymore. Are you aware of how much what you post can affect a person?

It is very interesting looking at what people post on Social Media and especially Facebook with the posters that get shared. I have noticed lately that there is a real trend to post anything to do with the words stupid, idiot and many other negative derogatory words. Why would someone post something like that? What pleasure would you receive from posting these posters?

I am very careful about what I post on my pages, personal and business, as I know the impact it has on people from personal experience. I will only post something that is funny, uplifting, positive, powerful, wisdom and loving and if I see anything negative on my personal timeline I delete it. On my business pages I will delete anything that a person has posted if it doesn’t fit with what I want my pages to feel like. I have had many people thank me for being such an uplifting and inspiring person and to continue posting what I do as it has helped them get through hard times and keeps them going.

You may not understand the concept yet, although it has be talked about and written about a lot, but what you put out there whether it is said or written you attract. Why would you post about people being idiots or laughing because they are stupid. Everybody has their own path and no one is stupid or an idiot. There are unawakened and awakened people. Anyone whether awakened or not can be affected by words such as stupid and idiot. You have no idea what has happened in their life such as continually being called stupid throughout school.

It is time that we post videos, pictures and post that will support, guide and uplift people so they can see how amazing they are.

For anyone that is struggling I encourage you to not take notice of any posters that don’t help you and even go so far as to delete the posters, pictures and videos that bring you down. I am more than happy to delete anything that brings me down and if a particular person keeps doing it I unfollow them.

I want all of you to understand how amazing you are and to shine your beautiful light for everyone to see. Allow the Social Media to help you shine by following the tips I have provided. Shine beautiful people.

My heart wrenching journey with depression

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ea5/59757377/files/2014/12/img_4387.jpg
I never thought that I would be a person who got depressed. I was way to strong for that so it could never happen to me. Well, heck, was I wrong.

I had been struggling with finances for a while which had gotten me down as I normally have enough money to not worry about anything. Without consciously knowing it I was sinking further and further down. Not having work or only getting a couple of days work meant that I was falling behind in the rent. On the days that I didn’t have work I didn’t leave the house and I didn’t even shower. It wasn’t until I couldn’t stand it any further or I got called into work that I had a shower.

It was so easy to just sit at home and play games or just look at Facebook. It took minimal energy and brain work to do this and was so easy just to sit on the couch. The more I did this the more I wanted to do this and was happy if I didn’t see anyone. I wasn’t seeing anything wrong with this as in the past I had been quite happy with my own company which is why I didn’t feel that I was slowly sinking into depression.

It wasn’t until I started crying a literally everything including my patients stories at work. When this started happening I then knew something was wrong but still didn’t want to admit it to anyone including me. I couldn’t be depressed. It wasn’t possible. No way. I got a little angry at myself for even thinking I could be depressed. Nothing was wrong with me. Not me.

This denial sank me even further into depression and I even got to the point where if there was an easy way out I would have taken it. I couldn’t be bothered though as it took to much energy which I didn’t have. I had a cousin commit suicide so I knew how devastating it could be but when you are in that zone you don’t remember any of this or even really care. All you care about is stopping the pain, whatever that is for the person.

For me it was the pain of loneliness which had been getting stronger and stronger. I have been alone for a while and whilst I had been quite happy with my own company I was over being alone. It had become too much for me and the depression kept getting worse. I had asked people for help stating “I have a block and can’t see what is happening.” Unfortunately no help was forthcoming as I believe people did not want me to be a mirror as they would have then had to look at their own “stuff” which could have been too painful for them. If felt so lonely asking for help and not getting any.

This picture shows exactly how alone I have felt and even now I have tears in my eyes as I look at this image as it is so painful feeling this alone. No one can know what you are going through as each person is individual in their lessons. I haven’t liked this lesson one bit and even now it still hurts.

A few things has helped me to slowly work my way out of the black hole and one of them was learning how to make my own soap. After I had gotten into financial trouble some beautiful people on a Facebook Soapmaking Group generously sent me soap making supplies that allowed me to continue making soap. Without this I really don’t know how I would have continued. Having something tactile to do such as Soapmaking, knitting, building things etc can really help someone that is depressed as it gives them something to do without thinking of being depressed.

Another thing that helped in the last couple of days was having a dear friend come down and help me declutter my stuff. I had collected a lot of stuff over the last few years and kept putting off throwing the stuff out. It has taken two days to go through the rooms and garage sorting it out and I still have to organise what is left but already I can feel the energy changing in myself and the unit. I am still struggling and even now feel like crying. The pain is still there in a large amount and really hurts. It will take a while for for it to get better due to me denying that the depression was even there. I have started looking at the world with new eyes which is a much better place to be.

The biggest step that you can take with someone that has depression is hearing their cry for help. Even if you are not in a place to help then why not contact another friend that maybe able to help. Knowing that you have friends that can help you really helps a person from sinking lower into depression. You can always help someone even if you don’t think you are.

“You may feel that you are alone because that is how it feels. You are never alone and remembering this is an important step in realising that depression is a problem. You will be okay”

Motivational Monday

I love this theme that I have each Monday on my Facebook Page Sacred Blessing Essences. It is a great day to help motivate yourself and others by posting motivational posts, posters, pictures and videos. You may be feeling down as things are not going the way you want or it is taking too long. Then why not spend a short time posting what motivates you? You will find that your mood changes as you post these and you will be amazed at how it can help motivate others. Need a kick up the bum? Share a poster that helps you get a kick up the bum. Are you procrastinating? Share a poster that inspires you to get the most important things done. Do you have a tip that can motivate people? Then share that as it can help others.

When you help others, you help yourself.”
