For ‘deliberate creators’, or those who aspire to be, depression can be like one of those things with spikes the police put down to catch runaway cars. It can stop you dead in your tracks.
Intention/manifestation, or the Law of Attraction, says in a nutshell that what you think about you will get. So what are the predominate thoughts of a depressed person like? Exactly.
Depression can so get in the way of you realizing your desires–because for a large part of the day, if not all of it, you’re hardly the cheerful, optimistic, enthusiastic person you need to be in order to deliberately attract what you want into your life–the good things. When you’re depressed, I believe you’re actually attracting more depression into your life.
If that isn’t a good reason to come to grips with and battle depression, I don’t know what is.
