Escape From Depression
Heal naturally from your depressed feelings, and begin to deal with their true causes.
This 2 part program may be helpful, even crucial, in every form of depression. It weaves vital information based on clinical experience and the latest neuropsychiatric research with powerful self-healing tools like cognitive-behavioral self-therapy, meditation, deep relaxation, self-imagery, self-hypnosis, autogenic training, and prayer.
The purpose of Escape From Depression is to help you heal naturally from depressed feelings and to deal with their true causes. As you use the tools of deep relaxation and Selective Awareness, you can take charge of and change the flow of your thoughts. Guiding those thoughts into the present moment – the all-powerful Now – you relieve the systemic stress. This creates an emotional and physiological state that permits the natural chemical processes of your body to metabolize cortisol and other chemicals of depression and stress.
Having taken charge of your thoughts by guiding your awareness and coming into the present, you now begin to use the tools of Self-hypnosis to focus on what brings you serenity and to write a new script for your mind. You literally rewire your brain – reprogram it – and refocus your mind on what brings you serenity, potency, and positive expectations of the future. As a treatment for depression, this can work wonders.
Part 1 offers a new perspective on the mechanism of depression, delivered in the form of a Heart to Heart talk. In it, Dr. Miller explains depression as the state of being cut off from your spirit or heart, what has meaning for you. It is a kind of learned helplessness, based on a belief in loss and a failure to grieve properly. But because it is learned, depression can be unlearned. You can change your thinking by coming into the present.
