Do you think taking an antidepressant could derange my spiritual perception in some way?

Healing Hands

Personally i feel any drug especially ones that are effecting the chemicals within the brain, in particular serotonin or dopamine can definitely cause effects on spiritual development. I would moreso lean towards any that effect dopamine rather than serotonin because the dopamine neurotransmitter effects the pineal gland and serotonin (which are usually in all antidepressants) neurotransmitter is an amplifier for emotions/moods. This could be said for all drugs though because they effect the hormones in our body and if you’re sensitive, you probably know that our entire chakra system is connected to the endocrine glands which secret hormones so basically everything is connected. I have some horror stories with bc pills but that’s for another day.

I wanted to ask my spiritual friend Eva who had personal experience with anti-depressant use. I felt she come give a better response on this issue than me.

“this is tricky because spirituality IS tied to emotion… if the antidepressant does succeed in balancing the emotional part then the spiritual could also be balanced too. For me, I know I wasn’t on the *right* antidepressant but I feel like it still may have helped me spiritually. Not the anti-depressant itself so much as the DECISION and ACTION to do something for my well-being… it could have been the drug, it could have been psychotherapy, but going to a psychiatrist who prescribed me drugs turned out to get me through a spiritual tunnel. But I know that with some anti-depressants there is a numbing that maybe could derange someone’s spiritual perception? The main part is that the person needs to be doing it towards their self-healing, and they need to follow their gut with it, just like anything.

I did have to get off them though, because they made me too lightheaded. I even may have seen auras even more than normal while on them but it wasn’t so much a positive thing because in those cases the auras were also signs of a migraine or that something was wrong in my body.”

In conclusion if you believe it is benefiting you and helping you with your own self-healing than do what you must.

much healing light and love to you <3
