Let’s talk about this Blog I’ve published here that you’re reading. I’ve also included information about recognizing seven signs of clinical depression. We all get sad or down. However, there is a difference when somebody is feeling stressed out or depressed because of a job loss, relationship troubles or illness. It CAN lead to clinical depression.

Seven Clinical Depression Signs Blog
In the blog “Mateja Petje Clinical Depression” I wrote about the topic of Depression. More specifically another blog I wrote about recognizing the different signs of Depression. That Blog title is called “Seven Clinical Depression Signs”. To make it easier I’ve included a link directly to that Blog too so you can access that information as well.
Today I wanted to share with you something that I’ve been struggling with all my life. The good news is I had a breakthrough after talking to a wise friend. For years I’ve worked with therapists, healers and coaches to release trauma from the past and my “victim” role.
You see a wise friend told me how to get more into depth. He told me to start taking full responsibility for my feelings, thoughts, behaviors and actions. Also to take full responsibility as well for my choices and who I let into my inner space.
The “Conditioned Self”
I’m excited to be able to finally meet my real “Authentic Self”. One that is based on pure love, compassion, joy and peace. This is as opposed to relying on projections and roles from my “Conditioned Self”. (As described by my mentor Shelley Riutta) that is based on guilt, anger, fear and other negative emotions. As well as expectations and dependence on other people.
Your “Authentic Selves”
As I got more into depth and started taking full responsibility I really made progress. That also includes doing my baby steps. Catching myself as often as I can when I am in my “Conditioned Self”. This is a very difficult thing to do but I was making progress.
I’m already a gifted healer and holistic psychotherapist. Consequently I believe very strongly that it is so important to continue healing ourselves! This is especially true for people in the healing and medical health field. In this way I will be able to help my clients in even more profound and more AUTHENTIC ways. There is no shame! We are all dealing with universal human needs and barriers on our way to getting to know our real “Authentic Selves“.
Now you might say this is all good and well but these things actually happened. The thing is that we see everything based on our past experiences with other people, events and circumstances. If we didn’t have an emotional attachment to a person or event that happened in our past, we wouldn’t have such a strong emotional reaction. That reaction acts as a “trigger” to a current situation. This means that we have not fully healed the situation. This also includes our emotional response to it.
This is the basis of my work whether I work with couples or individuals. One of my approaches to healing is using Imago (to read about Imago check out my website). If we didn’t have attachment to the past we would not feel pain, anger, rejection or whatever we are feeling.
Clients Testimonial utilizing Imago Approach
“I was extremely pleased with the services that I have received by this provider. Not only that she is very knowledgeable but she is very compassionate and genuine. She listens well and responded to all my questions. My girlfriend and I had a lot of problems due to our divorce and we both had baggage from our previous relationships. We also lost connection and she was able to get us back on track. Her Imago approach really works! I highly recommend her.” by STEVE November 29, 2012 Consumer Feedback www.Wellness.com
The Imago Theory
I want to discuss Imago Theory in more detail. Lets say for example, if a woman was abused in her childhood or past romantic relationships. If she hasn’t healed the past event and emotional attachment to it, she will unconsciously repeat the same scenario. She will do this in not just intimate relationships but also platonic relationships. This is whether business or personal. More importantly she will continue carrying this pattern onto her children or any future relationships.
In addition, if she is in a relationship with a man, who had similar patterns of being a”victim” of the situation, they will keep “triggering” each other’s wounds. They will continue this pattern until they both take full responsibility for their thoughts, beliefs, actions, and choices.
This is a good time to share a blog I wrote on the subject of “Relationships”. Here is a link to that blog called
Mateja Petje Clinical Depression- Choices
Remember, no matter what, you always have a choice. Even women or men that are abused in a relationships still have a choice which is not easy, but they CAN leave the relationship and many times a professional is needed to help them build back their self-esteem and self-love to be able to make that step. Finances might get in the way, and most people prefer to remain in the comfort zone instead of being vulnerable and looking deeply into themselves.
