I have a problem that has been bugging me for a while. I'm constantly tired, I basically sleep all day. I don't know if that's due to my depression or what. The point is that I know what I "have" to do in order to feel better. I also read The Abraham's book Ask and It's Given and read a lot of the content from Stingray. But the problem is that usually even to change negative thinking into positive thinking is too much for me. I just don't have enough energy. I know it sounds stupid but I don't know what to do anymore. Even going to the toilet is a struggle for me. People told me several times just make yourself do it and sometimes I make myself and do it but most of the time I don't and just give up to the negative (automatic) thinking. I would really appreciate any advices what to do. Thanks. Have a great day all of you. :) Tim

This sounds like a deep depression, I have been in depressions deep like that in the past. I am not in that deep right now so I will say this, this will change, it will pass.
I have overcome it through various ways when I was in that depression. Everything from commanding it gone in Jesus name to throwing it away. I have commanded my body to go to all out war against it.
The main connecting link that holds true for all methods I had used is...
I had to be sick and tired of being depressed, in other words I had to get angry at the depression and disown it!
At that point it became "I am sick of this depression." No longer "I am depressed." or "My depression." At this point it is "THIS depression" like I am under attack from an outside source.
Once I get to the point of disowning the depression it becomes much easier to get rid of.

Sit down quietly and look at a thought, how it appears and it comes to you and fades in to the infinite.It is just like the wind! If you don't try to think "omg! wind is coming" or "omg! wind is touching me", then just like that it should pass you in seconds..If you don't fear or hold on to the thought, it wouldn't stay in your mind for long!
Next time when a thought comes,
If you can watch your thought, it is powerless over you..
