Depression has become a “mental health pandemic” of the modern world. Maybe you are depressed or know someone who is. While medication is the common “solution”, personal revelation in the deepest places in our soul can lead to healing and restoration.
Do you struggle with insecurity, fear, anxiety, issues around identity or self-worth, lack of love, or painful issues from the past? Are there deep needs or “wants” in your life that are not met in this world? Consider the restoration of your soul in the healing and transforming presence of Jesus to meet the deepest needs in your life.
Our emotions function as indicators of our souls, pointing to our personal pain, inner conflicts, beliefs about God and much more. We need to listen to our souls as part of our healing and personal transformation. This is in stark contrast to psychiatric medication that typically numbs the soul, prevents lasting healing and undermines spiritual growth.
What do we really need for our personal healing and transformation? More psychological technique? More psychiatric medication? Or love and compassion through a genuine healing presence? Could love deficits with a myriad of symptoms and disorder be the deepest “cry of the soul?”
Psychiatry claims that mental illness has a genetic basis. Schizophrenia is often cited as the best example of “behavioural genetics”. There are at least ten reasons why this is not possible. Yet this belief continues in the mental health profession as if it were fact and hence is actually a modern myth.
