Over the last month, Ive been experiencing all sorts of mental troubles,
such as mood swings, extreme anxiety, alienation, extreme boredom, obsessive
thoughts, and trying to figure out why were all here. I can only
describe this as depression.. Im between a rock and a hard place,
as I dont know whether I truly have a chemical imbalance and need
medication or whether this is a gift to heal.
Im finding it difficult, as Im so blessed with my life at
22 years but find it difficult to find happiness and balance in things
and am afraid that this will jeopardize opportunities to come.
What on earth are you eating? Sounds like a sugar attack. Go to a good
nutritionist and get your diet evaluated. Thats the best place to
start. Medication needs to be the last resort. Youll never find
happiness in "things." Your happiness is in your thoughts and
in your own heart. Clean up your diet, quiet your thoughts, and breathe
deeply. Affirm: I am surrounded with peace, and it permeates my being.
All is well.
What is it about machines that I cannot seem to grasp? I know that Im
intelligent about a lot of things, but when it comes to electronics, I
seem to lose all my confidence. Thanks for an answer. Its really
important for me to try to figure

Youve come to the wrong person for an answer! Im equally challenged
by computers and sound systems. Thank heavens I have my personal assistant,
Shelley, to come to my rescue. When I get stuck, I call out "Shelley,
help!" and she solves all my problems.
Seriously, find a young person in your neighborhood, and have him or her
teach you what you need to know. Perhaps even take lessons. Once you learn
the processes, it will be easier. Remember, modern-day electronics are
just that, modern day. We werent taught to cope with them in the
past. Thats why its so easy for the kids of today, because
they begin to use computers at the ages of two or three!
Affirm: I am willing to move beyond the limitations
of my childhood. I can and will learn the new things in life. It gets
easier all the time.
My loved ones shape their own lives, but can I help them in prayer by
realizing that were all one and affirming and visualizing all the
best for them? Ive heard that you can affirm for another, but I
feel that maybe Im doing my loved ones harm by worrying. Thank you
for your help!

You are definitely causing yourself trouble by worrying, and youre
doing your loved ones no good by worrying for them. Its a total
waste of mental energy. You can certainly affirm and visualize the best
for them as long as its what they want, not what youve decided
would be best for them. You cant interfere with other peoples
destinies. You have no idea whats really for their highest good.
The more you work on releasing your own childhood negative patterns, the
more you help others. Be the example you want to see in the world. Just
know and affirm that youre all being divinely guided to experience
your highest good. You are perfect just as you are.
