For those awakening divine humans

Ascension, And Moving Beyond Depression


Enjoy Maria’s Song from my album, Simply Divine, while reading the post.

Many have moved through depression in their awakening process, but many are still experiencing this difficult symptom.

Depression. sadness, hopelessness, grief. Feel it all. Let it course through your veins, let it run through your body. Let the tears flow, for they are so cleansing. Don’t hold back. Feel the heaviness in your heart. Maybe you are just numb and feel nothing. Allow it all.

You can’t be on this ascension path without feeling, at some point, some form of depression.. It may feel like the depression is coming from a life event such as separation from a partner, loss of a job, a health issue for example. But really it is because you are letting go of everything you thought you were. As you look in the mirror you may not recognize the person you see anymore. You wonder where you are going. Sometimes you feel like the little boy or the little girl who can’t find their parents. They feel so abandoned.

It’s all perfectly natural. Your heart is heavy perhaps. You can’t seem to engage in life the way you see other people engaging in life. You may feel empty. Heavy. It’s OK.

Things you used to enjoy don’t seem to do it for you anymore. You may have ended a relationship. Perhaps lost a job. You don’t seem to be connecting with people the same way anymore. While many people are intrigued with their family tree and who they may have been in other lifetimes, you are releasing all of that.  All a natural part of your transformational process. As painful as it may be, and as much as you need to feel it and allow it, understand that it’s not personal. You are among many who are experiencing variations of the same thing. You are shedding your old self. In just about every way. Your mind interprets that as a great loss. But that conclusion is an illusion.

You see, your mind in this entire process is really in the dark. There is so much going on, so much transformation, that the mind just has no clue. So in order to put the mind at rest, you can just allow all of the feelings to go through you. Don’t try to resist them.  But depression may feel like a stuck energy to you. In a way it is stuck. Your mind is trying to hang onto it. And perhaps underneath the depression there is anger. If you feel the anger surfacing please allow yourself to express it in a safe way. That at least is movement. Keep the energies moving as much as possible through you. Because they are not you.

There is so much going on in you right now. You are releasing things, people, situations, your old patterns, your old ancestral lineage. Your galactic history.  You’re releasing and transforming your old concepts and beliefs.  And on top of all of that you’re also feeling into the mass consciousness right now and that energy can feel very depressing. There are entities around you and even in the near Earth realms who are being affected by this new energy. You’re feeling those as well because you are an empath.

Your entire body is being re-formatted in order to accommodate your new partner, your soul, your Divinity. (And by the way, you dont need to be free of all your ‘issues’ physically or emotionally in order for spirit to reside in you more fully.) And you’re losing nothing. You are gaining so much that one day you will look back and you will recognize the depression for what it was. Not to diminish the feelings, but you will see the depression as just a little blip on a huge screen. You will just feel that you had to go through it but it was only temporary. And it was so important not to resist it. You can talk to your mind, and tell it that nothing is really lost.  Everything is just transforming and integrating.


You are not an energy holder. Those days are over for you. Others on the planet are taking over that role.  Holding energies for gaia, for example.  Or for others.  You are now an energy mover and you need to keep energies moving as much as possible.  In other words, as soon as you try to block or try to scramble out of the emotion, whether it’s depression or fear or anger, you reinforce it.  And when you try to hold the energy for others, it becomes stuck energy.  In the new consciousness, it’s all about letting it all in but not identifying with it.  Not processing it.  Not analyzing it.  Just accepting it, and in that way it becomes unstuck.  It can be released.  For women especially, your new role is to disconnect from the pain of humanity.  To not identify with all the emotions.  To choose how you want to feel.  And to allow yourself to express yourself through your sensual nature, no longer just expressing through and residing in the heart.  Because your soul doesn’t reside in just your heart, but wants to move through you in a profoundly sensual way.  It’s your creative force.  And you haven’t felt safe to express in this way.

And dear sisters, you can’t have it both ways:  You can’t embody spirit, you can’t be free while you are still processing for others what they need to process for themselves.

What you can do for yourself through this process is to nurture yourself as much as possible. Take walks in nature. Do some light exercise like walking or whatever feels good. Dancing is such a wonderful way to express and release stuck energies. Go out and sit at a local cafe for a while. Paint, draw, journal, sing. B R E A T H E…..drink lots of water.  And just remember you have so much support and assistance all around you. In the non-physical you have so many souls that are watching over you and while they can’t interfere, they are sending their love and support and admiration for what you are going through. Because as you awaken and ascend in your body it opens up doors for them as well. They honor you for what you’re doing here on the planet along with many other brave souls who volunteered to go first through this awesome and often crushing process. You are not alone. Just reach out to your entourage. They are right there next to you. Just remember you are so much more than who you are when you look in the mirror. You are so much grander than the depression you are feeling.

author’s note:  If you are taking prescription medications for depression, ultimately it is best to be off of them, but do so carefully and gradually, as recommended by your doctor.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Eight years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. This post was so very needed. In fact, I prayed that you would have posted today, and I couldn’t believe when I opened your blog that not only HAD you written something new, but it addressed the awfulness I’m feeling. Thank you a million times for what you do for us women in internet-land. 🙂

    • It’s so interesting, but I had wanted to post this earlier, and since I already had a post on depression, I hesitated….thinking that it was overkill…but then I realized that this subject is pervasive and we are always gathering new information of a spiritual nature related to it. I’m so pleased it helped you.
      Blessings and love

  2. Thank you, it was very timely.

  3. Thank you for posting this. I have totally been feeling this. Its such an isolating scarey feeling.

  4. Isn’t it annoying when you think you have overcome the depression part of the ascension for good (I know it’s naive, but sometimes it just feels that way) and then all of sudden it hits you right back. At the moment I feel weaker than usual, have some weird pains and feel overall annoyed and unsatisfied after feeling relaxed and good for a long time. I know it’s old stuff breaking through and me letting things go that are not needed anymore (my dreams symbolize the same things) but it’s tiring. Then I talk to my angel or spirit guide, in fact I actually start griping at him as to why this whole c***p takes so bloody long. And that it shoul be time for the rewards now. But what has to be cleared, has to be cleared I suppose.
    I feel like my body is too tight for my soul, that is a good way to describe how I am feeling these days.

    • I know what you mean Kat, it does feel so frustrating. And yes my body sometimes feels so foreign. I know its doing its best to catch up. But whew sometimes its like enough already. ⁉️

    • thank u Maria ❤ your understanding of the individual journey to self is so so comforting and refreshing for me. i swear the word "heavy" says it all.

      yes ma'am to this being the lesson over and over… "You are not an energy holder." the idea of carrying anyone else's weight ever again outright exhausts me even with just a tiny peek of a thought of the "abused empath" role i've played for so long in my connections to others… and on top of that, all of the universal energy i took on for the collective in my heart and head… the more i've untangled from the burdens i carried for the collective, i felt like more and more layers just keep on comin' :(. when i look back i can't believe i survived like i was even a month ago with that weight…to be honest, barely did, lol. unfortunately i'm still a bit tangled in this energy with my job :\ but until a new income comes along, i bear it best i can.

      and Kat…

      "I feel like my body is too tight for my soul"

      saaaame here :\ i feel this everyday…. my spirit can't barely breathe in my body. pretty much just feel like this world suffocates my soul most moments.

      • sweet pea
        Yes it took what felt like forever to begin to release that old role. I never had kids this lifetime but I sure played ‘Mother Maria’ to just about everyone. It was exhausting. I had to get physically sick to finally take that pressure off of myself. And, yes, it’s still resident to a degree in relation to others. But I know it’s why I came back this lifetime, to say, I choose my freedom. I choose to walk this Earth as an Enlightened woman, no matter what it takes. I choose to release the victim, martyr energies…Even if it means making others a little uncomfortable…(Of course I forgot to read the disclaimer: “No matter what it takes, eh? Then fasten your seat belt”) And relative to the body…that’s a tough one. And in a way, these are not our true bodies….these bodies are more a product of our ancestry. It’s why it’s been so uncomfortable for so many of us….releasing so much even on a physical level, and some energies feel so stuck in our bodies…whew. It’s challenging to be here at times for sure…it’s time to step up the self love and keep inviting our soul in even closer.
        Love and blessings

  5. gosh Maria, you really do understand the things i’ve been through on my journey so perfectly. ❤

    yes! this… "these are not our true bodies….these bodies are more a product of our ancestry." i can't even tell you the million ways that speaks to me.

    and yes that victim, martyr energy… good gracious, so so exhausting. it hasn't been until that past few months that i've really truly started to open my eyes to just how much of what i've carrying isn't "mine" even in the littlest bit. what you wrote here is such a light shining in…

    "it’s all about letting it all in but not identifying with it. Not processing it. Not analyzing it. Just accepting it, and in that way it becomes unstuck. It can be released."

    the not processing it or analyzing it, that's the biiiiig a-ha for me. all that weight i've carried has been all i've ever known it's such an awakening to realize it's not my burden to carry anymore. don't take that energy on, just allow it to be, and B R E A T H E. ❤

    and yup, lol… "No matter what it takes, eh?" oh my. if i only knew ahead of time lol.
