A coaching tool for releasing depression and suicidal thoughts

A coaching tool that you can use to release depression and suicidal thoughts.

If you’ve battled the grip or depression and suicide in your life, then you’ll know just how insidious and tenacious that aspect can be.

You’re going along fine, because you think you’ve finally gotten it right, and wham! It knocks you over out of the blue again. So you get up and claw your way back and you start moving again… and bam! Out of the blue you’re knocked off your feet – again. It just feels like an endless cycle.

Releasing depression at its source

Depression and suicidal thoughts are rarely things that happen on the spur of the moment. Often the causes behind depression are deep seated, ranging back to childhood.

There are usually similarities though, and one of the common similarities I’ve seen is that people don’t feel connected: they don’t feel like they matter or belong. This coaching tool is designed to take that feeling of disconnect away at the source, reprogramming a new reality into you.

What you’ll need

In a nutshell, what you’ll need is yourself, another person and the statement below. Simply put, the exercise is that the other party is going to read the statement out loud to you.

Here’s where it gets a little complicated though.

The statement being read to you is a statement welcoming you to Earth and your life, and so it is going to be most effective if you can have one or both your parents read this to you.

If you are in touch with a parent and can have them facilitate this, then this will be very healing for both of you. They get to say what they always meant to say, and you get to hear them say it. It can also obviously lead to an emotional release and purge between you.

If you are not in touch with your parents then it’s not lost. You can go to any family member you know that will help you, or you can choose to go to a friend. The important thing is that you hear the statement and that your unmet need for acceptance is now filled.

What to do

Sit down together in a warm, comfortable room. It gets cold in the holographic when you’re shifting emotions – it would not be uncommon for you to be cold during this experience.

Ensure you have adequate privacy and won’t be interrupted for at least an hour. This allows for time to calm down in cases of an emotional purge. If possible do it on a quiet day where you have time let it all out if the flood of emotion starts.

Like any coaching process, sometimes you have to let the pain and emotion out with your natural mechanisms. As with any reconciliation or forgiveness process though, it will be with the lightness of connection and awareness.

Sit facing each other so that you can look into each other’s eyes.

Have the reader read the statement, using the recipient’s first name where indicated. Reading should be natural and the reader should look up into the recipient’s eyes, meeting their gaze intermittently.

Please give the reader a chance to read the statement before you agree to do the exercise, so that they have a chance to say if they’re not ready for it. It will be very damaging in the moment if you get to the exercise and the reader is not comfortable expressing the language.

The Welcoming Statement

Where it says NAME, please state the RECIPIENT’S name.

I don’t know if anyone has told you NAME, and if they haven’t, they should have: you are very welcome on this Earth. From the very moment you were created, you were an expression of love. The very stuff you are comprised of is love.

Angels sang and sages cheered at the awareness of your presence, knowing the potential of what you would one day become.

I don’t know if anyone has told you NAME, and if they haven’t, they should have: the world is richer for your presence. The world seems fuller with you in it, deeper and more precious with the inclusion of your soul.

You have untold stories in you, unheard songs to sing. You have unfathomable wisdom to share – and all of it is so deeply wanted. You are wanted, your presence is needed and our world would be emptier and duller without you around to fill it with joy.

This world can seem scary at times, and at other times confusing and full of pain. I want you to know, NAME, that you can always rely on me. In a world where you may sometimes feel alone, always remember that you have me. At any time, in any moment, reach and I’ll be near: there’s nothing you ever need to face all alone.

I don’t know if anyone has told you NAME, and if they haven’t, they should have: you are immensely powerful and incredibly strong. You’ll need that power and strength for some of the challenges you’ll face, but you’ll always come out stronger on the other side. For you, failure will just be a stepping-stone to success.

I don’t know if anyone has told you NAME, and if they haven’t, they should have: the world is full of joy and happiness and wonderful, beautiful and precious things. Take time to enjoy them, to smell the flowers, to savor the little joys. Draw precious people to you and fill your world with love for them. Take every opportunity to give thanks and say I love you – and remember that each and every single person you meet always needs your love.

You matter, you are precious and you belong in this world. You will never be alone. You are now and always have been, deeply and truly loved.
