A few people over the past week have reached out, letting me know they feel like ending their life. When a large amount of departing density - old emotions, memories and fears of our yesterdays - is leaving our body, it can feel incredibly heavy, overwhelming, suffocating and isolating. We can feel all alone even in a crowded room, especially in a crowded room.
When you are in a place of darkness it is important to have a pinprick of light pop up right when you need it, letting you know that you can keep going, that there is air up ahead. An email from someone who found a pinprick of light today right when she needed it, offers a pinprick of light to others. She read something today that gave her peace after only moments before being in a very dark place, and she wrote (repeated here with her permission): "With depression it is not easy to aim for happiness. I think peace has to come first and peace is easier to find when your in a dark place. I am resting in peace now, without actually dying."
If you are in a dark place right now, know that you are not alone and do not have to go through this alone. Most countries have a Lifeline crisis number to call, where you can connect with an experienced counsellor for free. If you don't know if there is one in your country please message me and I'll find out for you. You can call a friend, post here, or ask to please be shown something right now that will help you.
The energies right now are full of love, kindness, gentleness and compassion. If you aren't feeling this, that's ok. There are others around you ready to listen, to take your hand, to help you through whatever you are feeling. If you feel in panic or anxiety, take a breath and then take another. If all you can manage right now is one breath at a time then just do that. It is enough.
