Miranda Kerr’s got a pretty charmed life — a booming modeling career, several successful businesses, and an adorable five-year-old son — but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had her fair share of hardships.

In the latest issue of Elle Canada, the cover star, who describes herself as “a naturally positive person,” gets real about the time she fell into a deep depression after splitting with Orlando Bloom. “When Orlando and I separated [in 2013], I actually fell into a really bad depression,” she admits. “I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person.”

Ultimately, Kerr credits her positive thinking along with twice-daily meditation and essential oils with helping her survive the frightening bout with depression. “Every thought you have affects your reality and only you have control of your mind,” she explained.

“And also, when I wake up and when I go to bed, I have that attitude of gratitude and I say, ‘Thank you for this beautiful day, for this roof over my head, for the fact that I have my health and my son has his health, and thank you for our family.’”

“What I have found is that everything you need, all of the answers are deep inside of you,” she continues. “Sit with yourself, take a few breaths and get close to your spirit.”
