Cold Depression is our single biggest challenge as we enter the Aquarian Age. It affects vitality of spirit and leads us to behave in ways we would not otherwise. As we transition into the Aquarian Age through 2038, it is said that humanity will suffer from a phenomenon called Cold Depression.
Cold Depression is when the external demand is greater than the internal capacity to deliver and we have spent our reserves. We are depressed but we are so numb and insensitive to our own self, we do not feel it. The depression is, therefore “cold.” This leads us to inner anger and isolation from our Soul.
Cold Depression is when we are cut off from our spirit, source, strength, and inner guidance. At its core are a deep sense of loneliness, a prevailing sense of anxiety, and a loss of meaning, known as "The Silence of the Soul."
We instinctively counter the numbness of Cold Depression with behavior that fulfills the need for stimulation. A person experiencing Cold Depression does not seem depressed to herself or others. This is because she is busy, active, and appears energized. She may overwork, create “emergencies,” or drink 6 energy drinks a day. He may engage in extreme sports, risk-taking, or substance abuse. The insensitivity of Cold Depression leads to reactivity, impatience, and drama. Do you know anyone like this?
Cold Depression is not just a personal challenge; it occurs across an entire population during a global transition such as the one we are in now. When there is a major frequency change, Cold Depression can increase to profound levels, like a sudden tide. According to yogic wisdom, this has occurred in the past whenever there was an epochal transition.
Information overload, unrelenting stress, and rapid change contribute to Cold Depression. Bigger. Faster. More. These are all elements of modern life. The glandular and nervous systems of most people on the planet are not sufficiently developed to meet this challenge. When we don’t have the energy within, we seek it outside ourselves. We go for the rush.
We are all affected by the impact of the pressure of these times. We can no longer power through on the strength of our body alone. We need the power of our frequency. The quick solution? Get your energy from Prana and not from adrenaline. The rhythmic flow of Kundalini Yoga kriyas restores the nervous and glandular systems and releases old stress response patterns from the body. Mantra breaks the silence of the soul and builds the pranic and radiant bodies. This gives both calm and vitality.
The even quicker solution? Breathe and chant! Let the mantra regulate your breath to restore your Prana. Let the tongue and lips move across the meridian points to balance your brain to deal with stress. Feeling so pressured you can’t do that? Click ‘Play’ and have the mantra going as you keep going. Even play it while you sleep. In this age of change, we succeed by letting the sound current work for us.
