Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

I have been reading some articles and according to the latest statistics, mental illnesses are rising at an alarming rate. Millions world over are going through depression and many other mental issues. Sadly so many people are still not aware that the mind also gets sick like the body, even those who are highly educated in certain fields. Quite often I have heard people say it’s all in the mind and there is no such thing as depression !!!

Blog 2

In Australia alone one is seven experience major depression in their life time. But 70% of them will not seek treatment. One of the main reasons for this is the stigma. This is actually common almost world over. The other reasons are not having access to formal mental health treatment due to being in remote areas, the cost and time limitations. The result of this is people becoming sick and unable to work or to lead their lives in the normal way and also very sadly ending their valuable lives giving grief to their loved ones and a loss to the whole of humanity.
In the past it was said that counselling online is of little help, now research has clearly shown that self-guided, online psychological therapy is effective for most people experiencing depression regardless of severity or back ground. Those of you who are reading, please do go for counselling or therapy as they are extremely helpful !!!

“DO NOT THINK ABOUT STIGMA – IT IS YOUR LIFE THAT MATTERS”

But if you are unable to go, until such time, read books articles and find information on line for self care. There is so much of knowledge in books, magazines and on the I net. Again this is if you are unable to go for medical help for some reason πŸ™‚

Blog 4a

The word Health Organisation has stated that depression will be the biggest cause of health burden in the world by 2030 !!!
So this is the reason I thought I will try and increase writing more posts as I believe at least one person will make use of these tips and go for counselling, take medication or learn how to manage their moods and feel a little better. If I know I have made just one person feel better, valued and worth I am very happy. Each one of us are born for a very specific purpose and,
“You Are Very Unique and Special- Always Remember that”

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

I have written this article before but it was at the very beginning and I believe not many read it. Also now that I have more knowledge I thought of writing it again with new and added information. It is mainly about how you go about finding the correct doctor, counsellor or therapist when you need to go for medical help πŸ™‚
We all know that each one of us have different personalities, and so does the medical personnel. More than the other fields when we are dealing with our minds, it is very important to find the correct doctor with whom you can be comfortable and tell your story, discuss your problems, ask advice or guidance. As you need to feel you are trusted and respected, or the moment you feel uncomfortable even with one word, your mood can go off and it becomes a problem rather than a help. I have experiences on this. There has been times that I have gone quite happy and confident and coming back with a very dimmed spirit and annoyed andΒ hurtΒ having the feeling that I was not understood or trusted. So anytime you are over stressed or imbalanced, try and find the correct doctor and visit them regularly, until the doctors or the therapist decide to stop seeing you. Counselling is very very important and helpful. Counselling is very very important and extremely helpful in seeing and solving your problems in a satisfactory way πŸ™‚

counselling-1
Then comes the other Most Important part that, β€œYou need to take your medication regularly and continue as long as you have to or for ever” Please make a note that this is very important as I too have stopped at times thinking I am well and have got relapses when I did so. When one goes through severe stress and trauma long term there will be an imbalance of chemicals in the body. And the medications are given to balance them out. Why I am saying this ? As when it was explained like that only I realized that, I really needed to take what ever I was supposed to take, in order to become well and continue to be well. So you need to know and believe that you can lead a normal life by learning to deal with it the correct way πŸ™‚

Coming out of depression or being well from mood disorder means that it is being managed/controlled with medication and everything else you are doing to keep up being well and, they have gone into remission or you can call itΒ hibernation. Its like a seed in the ground waiting for the rains or the right conditions to lift its head up again. This does happen with many other illnesses as well. So medication is necessary to keep it under control or for prevention. But medication alone cannot do everything. A major part of it is in your hands too. You need to eat healthy and be active and maintain your body and be physically fit, as the body and mind is connected, for the mind to be strong the body has to be healthy too. You need to steer the mind on to the positive path and push aside the negativity as much as possible. For this you need to work at it. I will write about being positive in the next article, as I know some do not like or its too stressful to read very long posts. Hope this has given you some good insights that will help you in feeling better in some way πŸ™‚

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Thought of writing about stress. A common topic, a word but a real challenge to manage and overcome, but possible. Definition from the I net:

“A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances”

Stress 6a
Stress is not only at work but everywhere. It can be at home, with family, friends and even doing hobbies and during many things in everyday life. We can become stressed doing thing we do not like or even doing things we like to do. The difference is we try to go beyond what we can do, “its like running against time or going against the natural order” There is a pattern a timing for everything in life. True there are times that we do have to quicken our step in order to keep up with this fast moving world, but its not with everything and all the time. In life we have choices and we need to choose correctly πŸ™‚

Stress 4a
We need to prioritize in life on how we can manage what we have to do. We cannot do everything all the time. There are things we can and not do according to age limits. We have to accept what we can and cannot do. In short we need to learn to let go of the unnecessary and things we cannot change in life. There is always things we can do, and people whom we can have around who do not stress us. At least one or two good family or friends, who can understand and care for us. There is always jobs and life situations that we can fit into but there is always that exception. In that case we have to change the way we thing and take them as tests !!!

Stress 5a

None of us work 24/7 and there is always some free time to relax. Also relaxing does not need a lot of money either. Of course if one can have enough money to spend, there are many expensive ways to relax. But actually relaxing is becoming one with mother nature. The closer you become to mother earth, by ways of food clothes and living the closer you become to a stress free life. It is difficult to lead a complete stress free life in this present times. But there are plenty of simple way to relax and reduce our stress levels and enjoy a balanced and healthy life πŸ™‚

Stress 7
You can see from this chart many many things you can do in order to relax and relieve stress. You will also notice many things are about how to enjoy nature. We are part of The Universe hence part of Mother Earth. We need to live in ways that we are close to nature as much as possible. Even if you lead busy lives in the city, once in a way to go to the beach, rivers, parks, even a swim in a pool will bring your body closer to the natural state. Hope you read up and follow some of them as I do too πŸ™‚

Tank you for reading. Share and pass it on for others who can benefit from this πŸ™‚

Hello To All My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Hope all of you are well and moving on with life happily. Although I don’t write often there are 2 years of articles that I have written before. To those of you are new, I am a survivor of long term (15 years) depression and now on the path of studying. I have studied personal development and natural health and healing plus trained as an ESL tutor and have worked as an ESL tutor in TAFE Australia. At the present I am studying for a Diploma in psychology to expand my knowledge and also to share what ever I learn and discover for others benefit πŸ™‚

Words 1

Today I want to write about the power of the spoken words, as so many do not realize how powerful words can be. The one who speak positive words or even sing Β with loving kindness and compassion cleanses him or herself as well as those who listen, and around them as well as even the surroundings. These positive energy/vibrations can be also any from of prayers or chanting, which heals, bring joy and happiness to the soul. Harsh and negative words on the other hand, obviously has the opposite effect. People do not realize that what ever the words spoken, harsh or kind first becomes absorbed to the person itself who speaks. So many think when they lash out they hurt the other person, but little do they realize that the words have a bigger impact on the speaker itself before they get to the other person. Those who are kind and compassionate find peace where as those who are unkind and harsh are often stressed and troubled. Which do you choose ?

Words 1aa

Actually the words that we say are the thoughts that are working in our minds almost always. Sometimes we ourselves become surprised what comes out of our mouths, we don’t realize those words were the results of how the mind was working. Β It is said that we are what our thoughts are. And so it is. Others can gauge/determine what type of a person we are from what topics we talk about, and our use of the words !!!

Words 4a
Yes words have a very big impact on all living beings. Even animals as we know how pets and animals react or respond to love and kindness. “Learn to use soft, kind and loving words. They heal and soothes you internally like rocking a baby to sleep” Unkind and harsh works harms you too internally and become toxic and makes the body sick !!!

Keep in mind
“WHAT EVER THE WORDS YOU USE ON OTHERS, *FIRST ABSORBS IN TO YOU* BEFORE Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β THEY GET TO ANOTHER”

Hello To All My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

First of all Thank you all for reading, commenting and following my blog. Please excuse me, as sometimes I don’t interact with all of you as I should, as sometimes I get very busy trying to catch up with my studies. There is much reference to do and also lot to concentrate and take in, that I go well past midnight, and some days, wee hours in the morning when others are going to work πŸ™‚
It is two years since I started this blog and I have gone through massive changes. From beginning of this year, it has been like a roller coaster, changes from one to another which is sort of settling down now, but we never know when the next wave will come. Life is such the only constant is change, and if there is not changes how boring life would be also, isn’t it ?

A 128
I like changes as with changes old things and even people that no longer suit us move away making room for the new that resonates with our new self, with our new energy patterns and vibrations. We are all energy, and all the time our energy levels are changing according to how we live. This process happens to all of us. Those who accept and embrace change grow and move on to higher wave lengths to lead better lives. Those who do not accept change, face lot of pain. As it’s in letting go that will free up space in our lives and bring people and things, that are really meant for us to have and enjoy to lead a happy life. As long as you hold on to people and things that are not meant for you, you will be unhappy. Why things go wrong is, because all those people and things will have energy that go against you (clash), bringing conflict/friction and disharmony to themselves and you !!!
When there are problems in your life, look carefully and study the situation, because you will find that you are in a place or with people that do not resonate or belong with, that is causing all the friction and unhappiness. This can be a work place, a home or anywhere. One may ask about things. Yes even things that are classified as not having life, have energy/vibrations. Those who are aware of energy vibrations know that they cannot just wear any colour or even someone else’s things/clothes. This is because colours absorb different energy from the sun and certain vibrations does not agree with everyone’s physical energy. If you think carefully, you will understand now, if you have not realized before. We all have out own favourite colours, styles and textures, foods everything unique to each other isn’t it ? This is because our energy in the body is all unique to each other πŸ™‚
Sometimes when things are not going well we make changes ourselves but when changes happen against our wishes they upset us. Some time back, some sentimental things were taken away without my knowledge. They were of no value to anyone else but me, and I was upset why it had happened. In life as adults, wise adults you cannot jut come out with the facts, as certain relationships will suffer. I took comfort knowing that, “The truth like oil rises to the top one day, and it will be the person who robbed them who will face the consequences” and I need to move on.
The lesson for me was that, “Although they were precious, they were my past. By keeping them, I was holding on and even dreaming in the nights. I sat down and thought about it and realized it happened for a reason that, I was forced to let go and move on. I realized that when I had so many new things now, I was holding on to some pictures that reminded of the past and I didn’t need them. I had NOW, the present moment, and I can have new memories and happy ones. The moment I realized the truth, there was a change the next day itself. It was almost as if the day was different, new colours new life !!! Slowly life has begun to take a new turn. Still the the new can be uncomfortable as so many changes have come with them. With my praying my energy also has been changing, I believe I just didn’t want to let go of some little bits of the past and somehow, “God, The Universe, The Higher Powers” sent a messenger to take my rubbish away from me. By realizing and letting go of the situation and the person as much as possible I freed myself, to move away from the past and in to a brand new future πŸ™‚
I find I cannot wear many of the past things and have been clearing and donating. I have always giving away but this time is different. I found I couldn’t even wear my old watch as I cannot put in water and soak away the old energy unlike other things that can be washed. It is unsettling but Not in a bad way, as I know now with prayers and all the good things I have done, my life is turning in the right way πŸ™‚

A 129
It’s said both in my psychology book and in the healing process that, “Suffering is needed” Although at that time I never would have believed it after about half a century, now I have realized it is true. I am an inborn giver and compassionate. I didn’t think I needed any extra lessons. I do ask myself did I have to go through so much ? Did anyone went over in teaching me the lessons ? For this, I was given the answer that to make the perfect diamond, the stone has to go through a lot of cutting and polishing !!!
So from what I have gone through my understanding and feelings have deepened and intensified to the extent that I have begun to receive healing energy to my hands during the times I pray and also when I feel very deeply myself and towards others πŸ™‚

Healing 1a

From the day we are born we go through a very long journey. We have to learn so much and so we make mistakes too. We have to take risks as we are not all knowing, and then we make mistakes. Life is trial and error too. But what matters is we learn from the mistakes, from others and by ourselves. The whole world, The vast universe is open to all offering knowledge and guidance, for us to become good human beings ourselves and to others, and be of value as good citizens to the world. So it’s not the beginning so much, but it’s the end that matters mostly. We must not live to die with regret. As, if we learnt our lessons well and lived in loving kindness we will end up like the well cut diamond. A light that will light other’s paths πŸ™‚

Deeds 1a
From all what I have gone through so far, Now I take them all as lessons. I ask for strength and courage from The Higher Powers, The Universe, for me to be able to do so, and for guidance along the path of healing. All the experiences, good and bad have taught me immense lessons of patience, tolerance and above all forgiveness. “Being able to forgive is the first step to being free from those who come as unkind messengers” Now at this time of my life, I feel Blessed as what ever I have lost, I have something that money cannot buy nor can anyone take away from me. It is something I have earned. Through hard work, sacrifices, sharing and giving, loving kindness and above all being truthful and honest. Actually anyone can achieve this on their own too. The Powers, The Gifts, The Energies are all open for everyone as all are part of The Universe. But some try to take shortcuts which doesn’t work. You have to take the full journey, cross all rivers, climb all mountains, do what ever call of duty to fall in line with, “The Universal Energy which is also called Healing or Pranic energy” !!!
In a way the saying, “Truth like oil rises to the top” has come true as so many wrong things were said about me in the past and I have been praying and living my life as who I am knowing, some day the truth will be known. And so it has. Receiving energy from above, or connecting to “The energies of the universe”, one has to be pure. Its proof. No one can tarnish anyone’s character. Defamation of character is Β a very negative and harmful way of thinking. In the end it life balances. Honesty wins and Truth rises up boldly to justify all wrong doings !!!
