Curing Depression and New Found Abilities


About seven or eight months ago, as usual, I was meditating in the delta state. There wasn't anything different about it from any other past sessions... That's what I thought until the next day. The next day I had more energy then I knew what to do with, it is safe to say I was happier then I had ever been. I work outside so I was moving around a lot and I didn't get tired at any point. This feeling lasted all day long. To be honest I felt like I was on some really good drugs haha. But I was high on happiness. I'm guessing it was a serotonin and or endorphin rush and maybe some other things.

After that one day my life has changed completely. I had been depressed and suicidal since the age of about 10 (I'm 21 now). About a month before this, I had gone into a really deep depression that lasted two or three weeks and was ready to die. I was prepared for it but as usual I got past it with a little glimmer of hope.

So basically, ever since that one day, I haven't been depressed or suicidal once. I have a whole new perspective on life, and I'm much more happy. Happier then most people. I also don't experience stress... I do, but only over really serious issues. Otherwise, I don't get stressed over anything where as other people do.

I forget the specific word for this, but now I also am able to know exactly what someone is about to say, seconds before they say it. It doesn't happen all the time, but at least a few times a week. I've also had "visions".

For example: One night I went to my truck to go to the store. As soon as I stuck my key in the ignition, I received a vision. I saw some images really quick but most of the knowledge came in as a thought. Or I guess you could say I "downloaded some new info" haha and knew what was going to happen. I knew that my truck would break down, and I knew it would lead to either my brother or I going to jail (unpaid traffic tickets lol). It was the first time so I didn't pay much attention

So I get down the road, as I slow down at a stop light, my truck shuts off. I pop the hood and start tapping the distributor cap since this worked in the past. Two cops roll up behind me. They help me push the car to a parking lot and leave. I was a little scared but I didn't go to jail.

The next day, my brother and I were working on my truck in the parking lot. All day I had a really bad feeling, the one about going to jail. Well, my brother decided to check the spark on my truck... It wasn't getting any. So he wanted to check the spark on his van to make sure we were doing it right. As soon as I turned the key in his van, the engine compartment was engulfed in flames. We forgot about the gas leak. I called 911 as he tried to put it out with no success. The fire department came and put it out. The police looked up my brothers info for the police report and saw that he had a warrant. He went to jail.

So basically, I knew about 10 minutes before my truck broke down that it would brake down. And I knew about 12 hours before my brother went to jail that he was going.

A few months ago I was thinking about this and wanted to find out more. I found that some researchers from Yale, Harvard, and MIT had found that people that meditate on a regular basis can achieve the same thing, and that part of your brain grows in areas related to well being, happiness, and some other areas I can't remember. They said it can go away but only if you stop meditation for an extended period of time.

Has anyone else experienced this? Also, does anyone else know anything about this topic?

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for sharing this story with us. A very good story to read. Many times we have the ideas of something, going to happen and we don't think about it, and when we let our inner self know of it, instead of passing it off, things happen more to us. Once again well written story.

Your psychic gift is wonderful, do use it wisely and learn more about it, it can be very helpful for you.

What type of meditation do you do to get into such a deep delta state?

I'd like to know how to achieve this state of happiness, I unfortunatly can't shut up my "monkey mind" long enough to meditate properly though. I'm glad you've found wisdom and peace my friend.
Blessed be.

Edgar Cayce yes now there was a smart and humble guy for sure!

He didn't charge for his readings either. Did buddha, jesus, krishna, muhammad and other masters charge?

Whoa to the money changers!

Wow, I think this is what Edgar Cayce meant when he said "praying is speaking to God & meditating is listening to God". Hence, by meditating somehow you've opened the lines of communication & God is telling you what will happen. Making you clairvoyant & maybe even a little telepathic.
(Edgar Cayce is a smart guy, Yes.)

Very interesting story! I can really relate to it as I experienced that stuff with meditiation and special abilities, too. I've been meditating on a regular basis for some years now, and a few weeks after I started, I could sometimes do telepathy (this being the word you forgot). And it's steadily improving. Pretty cool that it works for others as well. Oh, btw, have you published your story on another site, too? Because I could swear that I've already read it before seeing it here. Good luck for your further path (believe me, it will get even more interesting ;-)).

Hi Brian, I'm so sorry to hear you have depression and I am so glad you had that life changing experience! I had a very simular spiritual experience when I was at a low point in my life. Although, you were reached out to through the experience and vision, it is likely out of concern and love for you. Suicide is one of those things that's considered a 'double-homicide'. Because it kills the people who love you the most. Also suicide can set a precedent in the family; after one person commits suicide everyone else is more at risk for suicide too. I have to tell you those two facts kept me from commiting suicide! Those who love you on this side and the other want you to be free from depression. Dr. David Burns 'Feeling Good', has helped me and millions of others deal with this disease. You are a gifted psychic and will be empowered by learning how to take care of yourself. Also if your moods continue to change erratically you may have bi-polar. Please use the gifts you were given wisely, by contributing to your strength emotionally it is likely you will have more psychic stamina and power too.
