It means that our physical beingonly shows the symptoms, but the real cause is hidden underneath. In circles ofpeople aware of energy bodies, depression is associated with depleted highervibrations of light. Sometimes, depression may be just one of the symptoms of blockedenergy. These channels transfer the energy to all cells of human body,including the brain cells. When there is some kind of block, brain cells getdeprived from its fuel and the person may experience depression.

Easingthe symptoms won’t therefore affect any of the causes of the disease (or pain).It will only temporary remove the symptoms, because treating physical signs doesn’tcure the root problem. Sometimes, symptoms don’t show again, but in most casesthey do. The reason is that our soul needs to learn something and the depressionwas the sign to point us in the right direction. So, it appears over and over againto teach us what should be done.
