Several research findings have established the fact that religion and belief in a higher power is an incredibly effective antidote against the stresses of life. In fact, even if you don’t subscribe to traditional religion, you can still discover a higher power and a type of prayer that works for you. There are many avenues to get in touch with Infinite Intelligence: meditation, journaling, chanting mantras and hymns, writing messages in bottles, or having an honest and heartfelt conversation with the Universe.

According to Norman Vincent Peale, a potent remedy for feelings of extreme sadness and dejection can be found in the Bible, precisely in Ephesians 3:16:

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being…”

There’s a subtle yet substantial message in these words. The sure cure for your depressed state is to ask for God’s help and allow the Spirit to infuse your weary soul with his eternal power, to awaken unwavering faith in you and transform you into a devoted disciple.

“If you are distressed by anything external,” Marcus Aurelius reminded himself, “the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

You must take charge of your inner cosmos, you must become the captain of your soul. The life you experience on the outside has a direct correlation with who you are and what you think and feel on the inside. Your outer reality is nothing but a mirror image of your inner reality. Therefore, when you get closer to God, He empowers you through his Spirit; He infuses you with strength, courage, and endurance so that you are able to elevate yourself and your life. He fills you with love and light, driving the wicked entities and darkness off for good. Soon, you are able to take the reins back in your hands and rise above depression, and therefore restore your health and well-being.
