    Steve, this video is a great explanation of the feelings as indicator/pattern interrupt process. I thought your readers might like to hear from a “success story” regarding depression. I was in and out of severe depression from my teens into my thirties. I was diagnosed as bipolar when I was 32. I spent 7 years under psychiatric care and was on 12 different meds for bipolar depression. I never got better. I’d been reading about the law of attraction and had begun meditating, and I decided to stop taking meds. My doc told me I’d end up in a mental hospital if I did. I ignored him. I started with behavioral shifts–like the posture changes you’re talking about–and diet and exercise shifts. And I kept depression manageable that way.

    In time, though, I discovered I could shift my mood by changing what I focused on. Nothing outside of me changes–I just deliberately shift my focus. I use my “down” feeling NOT to tell me I’m depressed but as a warning signal that I am thinking about something that isn’t aligned with my higher self. I deliberately shift focus, and voila, I feel better. I also never, ever describe myself as depressed or someone with depression. It’s just not who I am. I have down days, sure, when I let myself wallow in bad feelings, but I have had no depression or bipolar symptoms in 10 years. Even now, when the rest of my life is kind of a mess (financial etc), I’m still not depressed.

    I talk to and exchange e-mails with people who are adamant that depression and especially bipolar can’t be cured, because their doctors said so. I tell them I’m living proof that you can choose different thoughts and your brain chemistry will follow.

    Hey Ande,

    I’ve also had clients who come in and tell me they are depressed – and those “labels” don’t serve anyone – but I guess it’s human nature to give someone a label – so you can categorize them.

    Ultimately, it’s like you said. Once people know where to put their attention and how to use their brain, they change the way they feel.

    Love your story btw – thanks for sharing it,

    Great story Ande – and it gives an explanation to the question everybody asks after hearing the next video – “how do I finetune my vibrations?”

    The answer is – “By choosing what you focus on”

    And you focus on something by asking “how can I…?” and then begin acting on the answers.
