ALPHA DEPRESSION ELIMINATION METHOD
Depression is a state of the past, or should I say living in the past. When depression comes on is starts as a event with an outcome unsettling with us. Whether it be a break-up in a relationship, moving to a new house, physical illness, or even a change in body chemistry. The event occurs and our mental reaction, as human beings, can sometimes be more powerful than that of what we would have chosen to happen.
For instance, anyone who has ever experienced a break-up can more than likely relate to the feeling that we would rather not go through pain than go through is. This is only human. We will invariably always chose pleasure over pain. Unfortunately there is a stronger chemistry that seems to take over and make the pleasure seemingly impossible.
So what ensues after depression takes hold is almost text book in most cases. Denial, Depression, Anger, Acceptance are the four phases most human run through before they get their lives back online but the time it takes can be amazing.
Looking at each step of becoming normal again we can break them down and see just what each one means. Denial is a state of mind that is laced with magical thinking, temporary, what some would call, split-personality disorder, due to the extensive conversations we have with ourselves in our own head (sometimes allowed, particularly in my case). Extensive rituals around time, dates, numbers, places, things and memories. A bargaining line of thought where we believe if we only accomplish a few monumental tasks we will change everything bad that has happened. A obsessive, embracing of religious beliefs, obsessive checking of phone logs, emails, mailboxes and any other place that a clue or message may lurk. And this is only a short list of masked denials but still we embrace them with as much belief as we do modern science and in some cases we even produce positive results, strengthening the "magical" belief further. I think, somehow, this is why we take so many new qualities, understandings, methods and techniques from the stages of depression.
I know that one delusional dream I had during a depressive state in my life not only proved to be "real" but in my case life changing and worldly-famous, being Matters of Size, my program for men's sexual health. During a stage of my life where I had just gone through a break-up and I was rebounded into a new relationship I discovered the underworld of penis enlargement on the internet. In my early stages of denial and finding this number laces, magical, under-world art-form I discover something that did work, with a miraculous result. My future completely changed for the better, after I got through the depression, as did the lives of millions of other men. So it is important to be aware that even though denial does have it's many delusional states, I think it does push our creative size to new mental levels, sometimes producing results far beyond our own comprehension.
When we finally get through the state of denial, and don't get this twisted you can bounce around in these states for a unknown amount of time, it all depends on your ability to embrace and follow this therapy, but when this period finally does end, permanently, depression sets. This state is filled with as much emotional instability as denial but it is one step closer to happiness.
Depression feels the same to most people in various intensities so when the though arrives that you are somehow unique in you mental anguish take comfort that someone else is and has gone through exactly what you are currently going through. Also realize that there are people who were feeling like yourself that are now happy than they ever were before.
Depression makes everyday life seem hard. For myself my day of depression is as follows; I waken, feeling like I wish I never woke but that though is soon replaced by I wish all this pain was a dream. I get out of bed and look for something to wear, a task that could take a long time and leave my room in complete disorder with clothes thrown everywhere. After finally looking in the mirror and feeling acceptably ugly I trudge down stairs to maybe shave my face (if I feel like it's worth it). All of this early morning depression is dotted with denial thoughts and wishful thinking. I will be looking in the mirror and my mind bounces into thinking "I wish I could go back in time" or some other irrational, magical thinking pattern. In short, the first 15 minutes of the day are mentally and physically arduous.
My job allows me a very large amount of freedom so I can either start work or not. Usually in a depressive state I opt for the latter. I som how force myself into the car and off for a coffee at the local Starbucks but this is tied in somehow to a magical belief this will change my life...who knows, maybe.
My ride is filled with twice as much smoking as usual, songs with "much more meaning than they ever did before" and thoughts that range from suicide to genocide. Again, the thoughts are occasionally interrupted by denial interjections like, "I remember the day we went to that restaurant, I wish I could go back to that exact day and change everything. Then my life would be perfect." As crazy as that sounds every one of us has thought or is now thinking just like this. God for bid one of you manages to actually go back in time and change everything, than we would have another Matters of Size on our hands. I am, currently studying quantum physics and time travel.
After I get a coffee I go through my rituals of fixing it and I may or may not stick around to smoke a cigarette, or 10 and talk to someone. I often wonder how apparent we are to other people when we are in this stage of depression and denial.[?] Even though I am talking my brain gets a rhythm going with a constant obsessive thought about my loss. Sick, really, but this is mental reality.
Eventually I make it home, to the ALPHA+BLADE studios and start work but I find that since my job mainly involves advice, I weave manipulations into every note I send to get the conversation to focus on whatever loss I experienced. The phone rings and I am convinced it is that magical phone call telling me this entire pain I am going through was a joke and my new life is waiting for me. I can do this for hours or minutes depending at how long I can avoid going to the bathroom or looking at my ex's pictures.
After a long day of work I manage to fall asleep with delusional dreams of changing past regrets.
I hate to say this but depression is usually, naturally busted like a bubble by a new relationship or the realization of whatever eventuality we desired. This, mentally, is the natural course of healing, if we wait it out. This is superseded by the small change we die, get murdered or reach a new dimension somehow. It could last only a second if we meet our "real" sole-mate immediately after break-up by rarity is a key word here. Understand though, the ALPHA+BLADE methods for depression relief are in no way natural so keep this in mind. Depression, if we use the waiting it out method, could last a lifetime and when it does we deprive ourselves of a multitude of pleasures and potentials.
The next phase, being anger, is sickening to those in earlier stages while it is pure bliss to those within it's realm. Again, everyone goes through what you are going through. It comes in small bursts at first. In one of my many cases I burned some pictures of my ex and emptied my hard-drive of every picture I ever had of her. This was many as we had a non-nude picture site going for about a year and I had thousands of sexy pictures. This night I soon regretted weeks later where I managed to get back my digital files thanks to my partners excellent back-up methods. But this is also evidence of how these stages will interchange during the healing process. We may start to see their true faults, ones we have submerged in denial for months but they soon emerge and we start to realize that the person we lost was not perfect. We start to see we were not the only one at fault. We start to get a renewed energy, unfamiliar to our current emotion state of depression. We may start cursing the cat, or the car, or GOD and eventually the actual person. Crazy as it sounds it is chemicals reacting to a very delicate mental and physical process.
We may start noticing that the changes we made in ourselves during the denial stages are actually beneficial in the future mate department. The over working which produced more money, the new obsessive hobby that turned into a side business, the radical weight loss that gave you this incredible body you have been hiding under baggy, unattractive clothes, and the list goes on. You may even start looking at people that are the complete opposite of the one you lost out of spite or anger.
This state is soon followed by acceptance but I want to also interject that this, in most cases, includes a replacement for whatever we have lost. Acceptance does not denote permanence as I have found that I have bounced back through all of these stages even years after the loss was replaced. Memory can sometimes be powerful and cause very real physical disabilities but this only proves my beliefs that the meta-physical is as physical as the science it challenges. Our minds have such potential to initiate development, create new change, survive hardship with tenacity and evolve to a higher state. These times of creativity usually stem from an emotional hardship. The most artistic music, moving literature, comprehensive math, engaging art or world changing invention is invariably born of pain and craving.
In our graduation to the acceptance realm of change we do receive new gifts, earned from a past hardship process, but non the less, a better person. This is in the "waiting it Out" method, when we apply the ALPHA KP-DEPRESSION ROUTINE, this process is execrated and what we take from the grieving is unbelievable.
I wanted to discuss every stage of the grieving process before we strategize my methods by changing this event in time and eventualities. First it is important to recognize that a depression is a sign of a recent grieving and that we indeed have lost something. Identify your loss and make the mental connection to your current pain. The most important 2 words here are opposites and motivation so the NIKE term, JUST DO IT! never had so much meaning. Motivation is a simple word to understand. We have a craving or desire that is greater than our current state and we are more willing than not to exert energy to work towards change. What stops us from initiating change? Balance, really. Our denial, depression, laziness or current emotional state out weighs I true desire to embrace a new, different, perhaps better, life.
Being on the cross-roads of change we sometimes need to push ourselves into the initiate phase. The sooner we do this, the faster time will seem normal again. Facts are, the odds of your magical dreams manifesting themselves and slim to none and if they do some how, CONGRATULATIONS! Send me your magical method and we will start a web-site and make millions. I crave my loss on levels far beyond what I ever could imagine but the future always proves to show that desire as a lost prophet, an empty bag that pales in comparison to your newest acquisition.
How do we force this process into initiation is quite simple. JUST DO IT! Well beyond this slogan lay a deeper root value to this two word phase, a desperation almost. Keeping with the magical thinking we experienced throughout the entire grieving process we need to tap into this magical state again and make a game around living in opposites for a while and seeing if it somehow magically changes your situation. What does this mean? Well, because I am dyslexic is live much of my life in the opposite words, I guess this is why I have become so famous in my area of expertise, but from this disability I have always had a curiosity with the magical qualities of seeing things in a backwards perception. Almost always we find another way to see or do things when we practice this line of thought and action. In this case you need to dedicate a week to doing things just the opposite as you are currently doing them, in every way that may seem beneficial. This will allow a certain human, mind fun with the actual initiation of the change. I have always found that when I make a mental game of my current, negative or positive situation I get a self-competitiveness that accompanies a dedicated drive to accomplish my current goal. Quite amazing really as this is exactly what a 5 year old does.
It is interesting to look at children in this light as their ability to survive and overcome grief in blindingly fast in comparison with our our adult abilities. A child creates games out of even the smallest mental process and in the spirit of fun and self-competetiveness he will accomplish or do his best to accomplish the current goal. WHen there is a total loss or inability to create change the child embodies the skills to move on to acceptance and new life with such speed and grace. How do they do this? It is the rules of the game.
On the ALPHA DEPRESSION ELIMINATION METHOD, we look at our current hardship as a game. In this game there are rules and we must follow these rules. If we do our best and follow the rules we all can win a new, much improved life than we ever imagines. This, just like my Matters of Size Program comes with a 200% money back guaranty. How do I do this? Well, this method works and when it does work for you a refund will be far from your mind. The method is set up in a schedule of exercise, meditation, rules and games but it will work and it will be something you can carry with yourself for life.
First I will describe my own schedule I used and one can replace each time with one that fits better your schedule.
Wake Up, immediately do ALPHA+KINETIC Abs. It is important to compress our abdominal muscles before we start every day as this will reduce our desire to over eat. This has a cumulative effect too as your body will eventually be graced with 6 pack abs.
When thinking about food and depression this quote gives us a clinical understanding of what we eat and how it may effect us;
"...the change in Western diets, particularly a lack of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, could be contributing to subthreshold depression - when people experience depressive symptoms without suffering full-blown clinical depression.
"I believe when someone is not receiving adequate nutrition they are more likely to develop subthreshold depressive symptoms and in turn are more likely to go on and develop major depression," - Jacka [depression specialist]
SO when choosing this meal it is important to embrace the opportunity to eat good foods that will start a body/mind chemistry that will benefit us in this game of change.
My "normal" diet consists of 2 Serving Bran Cereral with Fruit, 8 Oz. of Caffien using only Sweet and Low and milk, 1 banana, 8 oz. of orange juice, ALPHA+BLADE SUPPLEMENTS AM.
After breakfast, around 8:00AM I drive into town for my morning coffee. This is important to change as the potentialities of new change happening outside the home.
I will spend about 30 minutes at the café, going over my paper schedule for the day. A very important part of this therapy is creating a daily schedule on paper that includes your daily agenda and any new goals you may have for that day. If you are not able to make social interactions this early in your day, be sure you make a spot in schedule for a daily, public, social interaction. (at least once)
10:00AM Arrive home and I go for a 3 mile run. Whether I want to or not, I force myself. This is, after all, one of the rules of the game and we all want to win. The endorphins that are released during high energy activity, like running, is amazing. Even when have absolutely no desire to go running, 2 minutes after I start the "high" feelings I get, being endorphins flooding my brain, make it all worth while.
It is also important to note that the timing is purposeful here as the metabolic reaction occurring in my body only an hour after I i ate breakfast is an extremely efficient energy very useable in physical exertion making my run effortless and very beneficial to a better body.
My run usually takes 40 minutes so around 11:30 I begin my work. I work very hard and get all of my daily work accomplished within 8 hours and I stop working. It is important that we are very good at our jobs but that we do not bury ourselves in our jobs to avoid change so my 8 hour rule is golden. During this 8 hour period I take 2 breaks and a lunch 1/2 hour.
At 1:00 I have an apple, 16 ounces of water and I spend 10 minutes in ALPHA+MEDITATION. This helps me reorganize and refocus the remainder of my day. The apple serves to raise my G.I. levels and give me much needed energy.
At 4:00 I stop for a meal. In grieving states I will eat a diet high in complex carbohydrates and omega-3 fatty acids found in fish. I become very connected to my local seafood salesman. Good fish ideas include shrimp salads, fish sandwiches, tuna fish, seared scallops, baked scrod, etc. The idea here is to get fish into our bodies at least one meal a day to take advantage of the mental benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids.
Carbohydrates will be key in allowing metabolic function to remain high throughout the day so I also enjoy a portion of rice, pasta or whole grain bread. Again, I take any supplements and take in another 16 ounces of water.
At approximately 6:00 I still enjoy the ALPHA FASTING RSA break of, 1 Yoguart with Two Tbsp. Granola, 16 OZ. Water with 1 Teaspoon Lemon, 8 oz. Coke Zero with 2 ounzes Gator Aide as I love the mini-boost I get from the chemical combination.
At 7:30 I quit for the day but this only begins my evening. After work I go to a local bar for a couple hours or maybe downtown for a walk, or to the local music club, or maybe simply an evening stroll, but I make it a rule in this game that no matter how I feel, I will force myself to have public interaction. I enjoy a light drink of coffee or fruit juice and I try to interact with people as much as possible. This help me brush up on my social skills and maybe even meet a new love. I also use this time to do things for myself, when I can afford to, like getting a hair cut, going clothes shopping, buying a car, whatever. Any social interaction is beneficial to someone who is depressed as it forces us to initiate biological brain function that would other wise lie dormant.
Finally, I get my Paper Schedule out and reference my goals for the day and take note of high and low points. I then right any additional thoughts and journal it all.
I take a 20 minute walk after taking part in the ALPHA+BLADE RSA Fasting Evening Sugar Intake, and I am soon asleep, getting ready to do it all again tomorrow.
This is simply the fastest way to mentally and physically change your current state of grief, depression, denial and physical and mental unhealthiness to A renewed, stronger, happier life complete with a healthier body and a more comprehensive thought process.
Why does this method work? Quite simple actually. It is a human normality to feel more mentally secure in a grid like structure of life, this is why the prison system is set up the way it is, with such structure. If forces a certain organized confusion that allows a daily structure of socially positive behaviors. In our case, we need a solid structure when we are in depression because it becomes easy to fall behind in diet, money, hygiene among countless other normalcy's that become forgotten when we are in pain. Following a paper schedule makes us physically accountable in contract form. This is proven to be the best method of accomplishing goals, by writing them down. A sort of mental/physical agreement in the form of a contract. I also use every opportunity to journal my thoughts. This helps we put additional ideas into words I can look back on and study in a sort of ongoing self-reference library.
A special note about good hygiene and taking extra good care of your self. Looking your best is so important when you are feeling low. We become very cynical when we are in pain and if we neglect a clean, well groomed, appearance we will project a double-whammy to everyone we encounter. Even on your off days you need to look your best so take time, each day to get your hair cut, clean your nails, brush your hair, attend to your laundry, lay your clothes out, shave your face, etc. Cleanliness is Godliness.
Following this method for only 7 days will change your current situation at levels your will no be able to comprehend. Within a month, your entire life will be changed, for the better, for ever.
