How I am My Path was Born!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

I hope all of you are keeping Well and Happy. I wish to be so. There are enough facts and figures going on so I need not add to all that. My Wish was always,”To Leave A Heart Print of Healing Energy as I walked along for “Good Health” and to be “Spreading Happiness and Joy to Everyone” ❤ ❤ ❤

I love Beautiful pictures and Quotations. After I started Face Book, in 2011, Happiness Quotes was Born on The 24th August 2012. I created “Happiness Quotes page” to post, Happy and Bright pictures with Positive quotations of, Hope,Wisdom, Courage, Faith and Love. At “The Beginning” I had to learn “How to share a post itself” and then slowly “I Learnt to write on pictures” As I progressed, I found that I was getting over the Low Moods and started to become more Positive and Happier. And then slowly, “I started writing my Experiences and Knowledge of my journey of becoming well”. Without my being aware, Going through so much of Colourful and Uplifting Pictures and Quotations, I had been Uplifting Myself also and had become Very Positive. At the same time I also “Trained as an “ESL Tutor in (English as A Second Language)” and started working in TAFE (Technical And Further Education). I got this need to study further and, I started to study, on line and did Two Courses, “Personnel Development and Natural Health and Healing” through MSA (Monash University Student Association ~Training and Professional Development). I did these very well and then, started to study for A Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I wanted more Knowledge and to feel doing something to advance myself as well as, “Most importantly I wanted to show that, “People can overcome so called low moods and can concentrate and study and achieve Higher standards of Life to be Happy and Health and able to lead Normal Lives again!

As I was studying, I needed to put my mind fully on the course and found my Mind going along “The Path of Healing” that was taking me away from being a Tutor of English. Besides I have been teaching English for a very Long time, starting with my sons and then, once they were grown up, I started teaching the children around my home, and doing the same thing was not all that interesting and Health and Healing became “More important”, That I stopped being a Tutor and became fully involved myself in to studying. In a way, The course itself was quite advanced and I needed to concentrate and put my mind fully into studying the notes, “The Theory part of it also”. Actually this was the “Best thing that happened to me, as I really learnt so much about the, “Theories and Techniques of Counseling and below are The Main Theories that I studied”:

1.) Psychoanalytic Therapy
2.) Adlerian Therapy
3.) Existential Therapy
4.) Person-Centered Therapy
5.) Gestalt Therapy
6.) Behavior Therapy
7.) Cognitive Behavior Therapy

All these really helped me while I was studying, as not only the theory part but, I had to answer my own way of “dealing with certain other clients issues. How I would go about counseling them, in real life. The last Therapy, ” The Constructivist Approach to Cognitive Behavior Therapy ~ By Dr. Donald Meichenbaum, was what really worked for me, Like The cherry on The Cake” 🙂

Dr. Donald Meichenbaum: Born10 June 1940 (age 79 years), New York, New York, United States is an American psychotherapist . He is considered one of the founders of cognitive behavioral therapy . He attended from 1954 to 1958, the Taft High School in New York City and then 1958-1962, the City College of New York . From 1962 to 1966 he studied at the University of Illinois in Urbana . From 1966 to 1969 he was Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Waterloo , Ontario , 1970-1973 Associate Professor of Psychology and from 1974 to 1998 Meichenbaum was Professor of Psychology in Waterloo. In 1996, he became director of the Melissa Institute for Violence Prevention and Treatment in Miami , Florida. He was voted one of the Ten Most Influential Psychotherapists of the Century by North American Therapists in a 1999 American Psychologist Survey . He is considered one of the most cited psychological researchers at Canadian universities. “Dr Donald Meichenbaum is professor emeritus at the University of Waterloo, and “continues to work up to date April 2020” as a clinical psychologist. ~ https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Meichenbaum

“The Constructivist Approach to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy” Donald Meichenbaum  has developed his approach by in-cooperating the “Constructivist Narrative Perspective (CNP)” people tell of significant events in their Lives!
One of the, “Therapeutic tasks” is to help clients appreciate how they construct their realities and how, “They Author their own stories” 🙂

A 152
Therapists help clients on how they, “Construct reality (story tell) and examine the Implications and Conclusions clients draw from their own stories” Telling the of The Rest of The Story ~What They did to Survive and Cope ~ bolster clients Strengths and Help Them Develop Resilient behaviours. In this way, “Clients can Move from being Clients to ~ “Strong Willed Survivors” and “Successful People ~ Dr. Donald Meichenbaum, Ph.D.

Dr. Meichenbaum uses these questions to evaluate the “Outcome of, “The Therapy”:
1. Are clients now able to tell, “A New Story about themselves and the World”?
2. Do clients now use more Positive Metaphors to Describe Themselves?
3. Are clients now able to “Predict high-risk situations and Employ Coping Skills in emerging problems”?
4. Are clients able to “Take Credit for the changes, “They have been able to bring about”?

In Successful Therapy Clients, “Develop Their Own Voices Take Pride in what They have Accomplished, and “Take Ownership of The Changes they are bringing about”. In short, “CLIENTS BECOME THEIR OWN THERAPISTS and TAKE THE THERAPISTS VOICE WITH THEM” 🙂

And This is who I became. Taken the Therapists Voices with me and have been Moving forward Telling My Own Story in Helping Others to have “Faith, Hope and to Heal” and Lead a Life of Good Health, Prosperity, Happiness and Joy and Peace at Heart ❤

Teaching 2a

At The same times I have been, Praying and Meditating intensely since a very very long time. My wish was to, receive, “The ability to Heal” what I was asking was for Protection and for Guidance and Blessings, “To be able to Think, Say and Do ~ The correct Thing Every step of the Way” I was aware, “That My Maternal Grandfather had this Very Rare Gift of Healing, “Coming down through The Generations, and even My Great Grandfather was an,”Ayurvedic Physician himself.

Medicine 5a
And as “Eldest of The Grand children I had the good Luck to be able to” spend my school holidays with My Grandparents in their Home, and was able to watch even My Grand Father seeing Patients on certain days, when I used to go to pick him up, seated near the door, until he finished the last of the patients in the night” At that time I was not really aware, “What This Healing Gift was, But what I wanted was to, “To do service like him and My Grandmother, in giving which is, Being Dedicated for Pure Service” Little did I know, “That somehow what My Grandfather was doing “Had gone in to my mind at that time and as I was moving along, “Little by little I was Reading and Trying to Understand what it was”!

Medicine 3aa.
It was then I started reading up and also studying Natural Health and Healing, that I started getting energy into My Hands and a friend who was A Spiritual Healer herself asked if My Hands became warm when I came across someone who was not well. And also mentioned that it was, “My Grandfather’s Energy and also suggested some reading material to me”. Then on I gradually I began to to understand more and more and finally I did begin to feel, “My Hands getting Energy at certain times even when I was writing on This Blog” and also when some of them needed Healing Energy” meaning I had, “Received the, “Gift of Healing to Both my Hands”!

Ayurveda
 (/ˌɑːjʊərˈvdə, ˈv-/)[1] is a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent.[2] Globalized and modernized practices derived from Ayurveda traditions are a type of alternative medicine.[3][4] In countries beyond India, Ayurvedic therapies and practices have been integrated in general wellness applications and in some cases in medical use.
The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians.[6] In Sushruta Samhita (Sushruta’s Compendium), Sushruta wrote that DhanvantariHindu god of Ayurveda, incarnated himself as a king of Varanasi and taught medicine to a group of physicians, including Sushruta. Ayurveda therapies have varied and evolved over more than two millennia. Therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances (perhaps under the influence of early Indian alchemy or rasa shastra) ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayurveda!

What is Depression?

Hello To All My Dear Reader ❤

I am re-doing some of the posts and this is exactly from 2 years ago and after. Looking back, “Its an amazing, the journey I have come so far, in healing myself and advancing my knowledge, working, studying” and going about in life as, “A Complete normal human being” Actually I am a much stronger and knowledgeable person now as a result of all the experiences I had experienced through the Journey. This is because I made a concentrated effort in becoming well, making use of all the help I could get and above all, myself working towards healing 🙂

ZZZZ 9
Why I am writing like this is for those of you who are reading to have “Hope and Faith” and to “Believe in becoming well in time, with medication, counselling and/or psychotherapy”. It is possible to control and send the dragon back into its cave where it came from. In other words it goes into remission as it happens with so many other physical illnesses too. In becoming well, I have the opportunity in Enlightening/Guiding others who are in need of, I should say “Hope” to know that you also have that chance, the ability to, become well and lead a “Life of Happiness and Joy that you deserve” ❤

Hope 24a
This is an general explanation of Low moods/Depression: (Which one doesn’t have to have all the symptoms all the time) it is being sad for a long time, and also known as darkness because, if you are depressed, you do not see the full colours of life. Meaning your eye tend not to attract bright colours, things even the clothes you wear and choose, tend to be dull. Just like when its a rainy day and the sky is dark and all around you is dull. Also you may lack energy, feel lethargic, lack of appetite, sleep, at the same time drowsiness, and feeling of dullness in general towards living. “When you can please, “Look out for ~ Self-Help Books, Magazines, even papers for more information. You can also refer books and other sites on the I net, as well as Counselling, Medication, as all these Help to make you Understand and Learn Better ways to Become Positive and well and Lead a life of Good Health and Happiness ❤
You become energized and full of enthusiasm to get on with life. Which I am now. “Deepa” my name given according to my birth time means, “Light” Light has two meanings ~ Being “Positive and Bright”, as well as, “Enlightening in knowledge”. So somehow years ago, according to my birth time this was the suitable name which was given by “My Grandfather. It’s said we are born with a plan. So was I born for exactly this purpose ? In that case, is it why I went through all these challenges and tests to overcome, for a purpose ? Time will give the answers…….. ? And it has 🙂

Purpose 3a
Time has given the answers as, “Since December 2013 I was cleared from counselling, being said that I had come back to normal by my psychiatrist”. A word I never expected to have heard in my entire life. Suddenly the clouds had moved away, and out came the sun. Become Positive and well” The moment you become “Positive and well”, its just like the sun has come out and you see the world in all its glory :)The world opened up to me “Full of Positivity and Colour” 🙂

February 2016: I am keeping in Very Good Health and I have begun to receive this Healing energies to my hands. I have gained something that money cannot buy nor can anyone take it away from me. It is something I have earned, “Through sheer hard work, Sacrifices, Sharing and Giving, Loving Kindness” and above all being “Truthful and Honest” ~ “The Powers, The Gifts, The Energies”, are not something that one can achieve easily. I had to take the full journey: cross all rivers, climb all mountains, do what ever to answer, “My Calling” to fall in line with, “The Universal Energy” which is also called “Healing or Pranic energy”. This is our life force energy which is also called, “Prana” in Sanskrit, “chi” in China and “ki” in Japan. As we know, energy can travel so, “Prayer energy which also can be called Healing Energy” can travel far and wide to distant places too ❤

To be able to know who I am, I have posted My Full name in Who I am & Why I am Writing! and to be seen from where, “I have acquired “The Gift of Healing Hands” I have posted this link of, “Who My Grandfather is and My Great Grand father is : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._P._Wickramarachchi ❤

It’s strange how life has taken a turn as what I wanted to do was Botany, as I loved plants. I did not want to do medicine or to be a doctor, but now I have and still am studying and reading on psychology, health and various other topics on life and even writing simple poetry as well. We can all study and Learn all through out our lives. We are all born for some specific purpose and it seems that “This is my Purpose, my Mission”. Aren’t I glad that I have got such a mission in my hands 🙂

A 106a

People go through hard times in their lives due to many different reasons. Being physically ill, problems in jobs, professions, lack of money and/or family/children problems. And sometimes all or many of these come together. People looking from outside, do not see what is going in others personal lives, and can discourage and hurt others with no reason. Someone who is going through a very hard/bad time, might completely go off track, by some insensitive and ignorant people’s attitude and, pushing them further into sadness and ill health. Being upset, they might even think of doing things “Not Positive or Healthy for them”. So “THINK CAREFULLY” before you say or do anything harsh without knowing what others are going through. “These are the times that the human mind cannot take it and it becomes unwell”. So always be aware, just because someone is well dressed and smiling there can be lot going on unseen within !!!Heal 10
The word that people use saying broken, is that your mind becomes unwell just like the body. The soul, your spirit can be dampened, and it becomes too much for the mind and it begins to become unwell and then physically also one can become unwell, as the mind is also in the physical self, in short in the head somewhere. Its not only people who stresses or make you unwell, mother nature also does that with floods, volcanoes and many other tricks up her sleeves, and some can go on for a long time than you want to. This is why I am writing that it is possible for most of you to bring it down, keep it under control, if not fully to some extent, enough to lead a stress free life. If after a long time. I overcome my sad moods. So can you. When you have too many issues your head is over working trying to find solutions. Its mostly stress that you get headaches and most of the other illnesses. Its like a chess game inside your head, trying to figure out the best ways to overcome the problems and solve the difficult situations. You are able to organize and find better ways to do things and learn how to manage the situations better 🙂

Stress 1a
Please do not look down upon people who have mental issues. Being mentally ill is Not an unnatural thing. Through stress, untold grief, sadness which often is not their fault many become confused and unwell. This labeling and looking down upon people is wrong. All people have a right to lead a life of peace and happiness. “It is this stigma that is preventing a lot of people going for help to the doctor that is making them more ill. Mental illnesses are supposed to be rising according to “WHO” (World Health Organisation). What They think is by 2030 Depression is going to be the biggest cause of health burden in the world. I am sure glad I am on the, RIGHT SIDE OF LIFE, ENCOURAGING and SUPPORTING PEOPLE TO LIVE HEALTHY and HAPPY 🙂 ❤ 🙂

Be Brave and seek out help. Don’t let anything spoil your life. You have the right to lead a good life ❤

Counsel 3a
Once you begin to talk, you help yourself to feel good to love and care for yourself. As none of us are born perfect. Sometimes its not seen why somethings happened to us. No one makes a mistake or takes a wrong turn if they know that it will not work well. It is reaching out to the closest thing, or a person, “As your fist instinct is to live well as this is how we are born” You are born to live well and live to tell your story to others to lift them up too 🙂

Its not only our problems and struggles, our successes and winnings also can be turned into stories to help others. “I am touching on the good side too” As so many harp on the bad side and do not see the good they have. This is a result of my being positive. Now I can look from both sides of life 🙂

Heal 3a
It is said that those who have gone through any physical or mental stress themselves can understand another’s pain or hardships better. Someone who never had a headache would find it hard to understand another’s pain in the head. But one doesn’t have to undergo to understand another’s feelings. As all human beings have feelings, and are intelligent and have a brain to think and analyse what is right and wrong. We don’t go through all the experiences ourselves in one life. How I became well is “LEARNING” from a combination of others experiences, my knowledge from very young days. Even from The I net, books, magazines and other sources I have come across!

Passion 1a
Each and everyone goes through some kind of experience, at some stage of their lives. Sometimes back when I posted this in my group, someone commented this is because, they feel the pinch. Well I am a survivor. I did fight to win over low moods. We all have to, “WORK HARD”to achieve what we want in life. I feel quite good that in spite of being named the light, I experienced some hard times managed to come out Positive and became what I am today. How I became well is from a combination of others experiences, my knowledge from very young days. Even from books, magazines and other sources I come across. Back to myself and even with, “More Experience and Knowledge to Guide Others to Lead a Better Life of Good Health and Happiness” 🙂
