Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Hope all of you are keeping well and Happy. Last article I wrote about Things We Love to Do! Now here I am writing that, “All Good Things don’t come that easily ~ meaning if we want a good and successful life, we need to work hard towards them. For this we need to accept change and also to be ready to move out of our comfort zone ❤

ZZZ 1a
Moving out of our comfort zone is like, taking an adventure. If we really want to better our lives, we need to take it as a positive experience. We need to, know our passion, our dreams and follow our instincts to achieve our goals. This results in taking trips to unknown destinations. Taking risks and travelling on paths not gone before. But it all depends on your attitude ❤

ZZZ 2a
On our journey, to find new and better quality of life, we will observe and learn many new things, from seeing new places and meeting many new people. Life is beautiful but it can be challenging and difficult too. All of that is, for us to face our difficulties overcome them and go to the next level. Very often if we don’t get pushed we don’t move. In moving on, we need to keep our minds open for things of beauty and wonder 🙂

ZZZ 3a
Keeping our minds open for new and better things, brings us new and a better life. Things can change any time in life, so we need to be Patient as, we are not aware what the next moment will bring us. Although we have to work hard, and do work hard, the opportunities and new doors that open, will only open at the correct time. Until such time, we have to keep going and Not give up. We need to keep our Faith and Trust in the process of Life ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Love 6

Today being the day that,”Lord Jesus Christ was born” I bring you the message of love from him. People take the word “Love” in many ways, but the real love is, “Loving kindness”, which is,”Mettha” in Buddhism. That is to feel for another as yourself. This is the message of Lord Jesus Christ as well as the “Foundation of all religions” ❤

Love 13

People in general separate themselves according to each religion, the reasons that there is so much of unrest in the world. Where as every religion teaches the same principles, in different ways and by different religious figures. As people are born unique to each other and hence different personalities so, their understanding is of different levels. This also differs according to certain countries according to the weather and their life styles. So we as people are shown in many different ways how to walk on the correct path, to lead a good life and in the end come to that place of peace that all mankind aim for!

Religion 1

When there is so much being taught by parents, in schools, books, magazines, and now even on the I net, sadly there are some who do not understand the, “Real essence of religion” Some feel that, the teachers have passed away! Yes they have but, “They have left their teachings for mankind to follow ~ They are all, “Divine Teachers” who has been born to teach us about, “The Laws of The Universe” The teachers may have gone but, “The Universe is still here! It is always here. In fact, “WE ARE PART OF THE UNIVERSE”!

Love 18

I have always been keen on religion and keeping myself updated regularly. Whenever I need guidance I look up to my notes, as here I am unable to go to the wise and known people for guidance and advice. As human beings at any age we all need guidance from time to time, as suddenly life can change dramatically. That is why we have a religion as its not even the next day but, we don’t know what the next moment bring. “Change is the only constant in life”!

Love 17

What all religions teach us are messages of Loving Kindness, peace and tranquility. These are the fundamental truths according to, “The Laws of The Universe” We all come from one place and we belong to one family. Although most of the people do not realize, if they do some harm to others, they are harming themselves too, although it is not seen immediately. This is the,”Law of cause and effect” One need not go out of the way and take revenge or punish anyone physically, but what is done, automatically comes upon them. No one does it. It happens. Good or bad. This is what the religion teaches us ❤

Love 16a

So on this day of the,”Birth of Lord Jesus Christ – the message he has brought is Love and Peace” His teachings are all to Love each other. “Love thy neighbour as thyself meaning feel for others just how much you feel for yourself. ” I wish you all A Very Happy Christmas ❤

I hope you enjoyed the article and learnt something new or remembered something you already knew. Please do share and/or pass it on for others who will benefit from what I have written. Thank you for reading ❤

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

Hope all of you are well. I have not been here for a while, as I have been busy writing some other articles. So I am sorry I have not been visiting some of your blogs too. I am re-writing this article as so many have missed the old articles. We are all aware in life everyday is not the same. We keep on changing and moving ahead. Even if we do not want to change, we do grow older by the day and changes happen physically and mentally, as well as the whole environment changes around us. That is the norm of life. With that there comes challenges over and over again for us to learn how to face and overcome them, to become stronger and wiser to move on in life to the next level 🙂

Challenge 3

Once you have overcome a challenge or challenges, you need to learn from them and organize yourself, to make sure the same things do not cause problems again. For this you need to, “Let Go” of the things and people that do not work for you anymore. Letting go usually, does not mean taking a bag and going away as so many posts show. As in life you cannot leave those who are dependent on you and walk off just like that. What it means mostly is, “Letting go from the Mind” and changing and adjusting to those people and situations that you have to live in, to fit in better 🙂

Life 1

Letting Go is a process. As in life from the moment we are born we are Letting Go isn’t it? First of all we let go of the womb that we grew for 9 months and entered the, seems like harsh world with a bang. From that time on wards, everything that we were born with, our hair, skin keeps on shedding and being renewed without our knowledge. Letting go is a, “Natural Process for us to, “Let Go” of the unwanted/old and move on to new that works for us” Its just like discarding our clothes that become too small for us as we grow on to our next size. Not only us it happens to animals too. Like reptiles, they too shed their whole length of outer skin from time to time. The eagle sheds all its feathers and even the beak after 40 years to renews it self for another 30 years. Then why is this, Letting Go become such a painful process ?

Let Go 1

This is when, “We are Forced to Let Go”, “Before we are ready” Just like pulling our hair or teeth before time. In Nature, there is always, a Time for everything. When we have to, or Forced to give up anything or people before we are ready only, it becomes painful” So there is always a, “Time to Let Go” if not it is difficult and painful. But sometimes so happens in life, whether we like or not we do have to let go as we need to move on and holding on doesn’t help. And once you accept life becomes much easier and pleasant. As you have less people and things to trouble you unnecessarily!!!

Let Go 2

 

Then how to make life a little easier for us, living in this complicated world? Well the most important word that comes in is, “To be prepared to Let Go” When we know our work is done and we are no more needed. Hard? Yes 🙂 But it is the reality. When people have out grown you means they have changed their vibrations, hence some of their personality and their energies. So they no longer able to fit in with the same people and live under the same roof, doing the same things. All that belongs to another era, which is called by the name, “The Past” Letting Go even if it is for the good for us is very difficult, but sometimes we have to, and once we do the relief is great. By letting go if the past you make room for the new to come in, that will ultimately lead you to new places and people whom you fit in better and belong with, to lead much satisfied and happier and fulfilled life 🙂

let-go-3
Hope you enjoyed reading what I have written, and learnt something to help in your life or even someone else’s life. Knowledge is like ripples that travels over and across lands and seas all over the world bringing everyone closer to share and learn from each other. It is for us to learn how change and letting go helps us to move on to a better level in life. Enjoy 🙂

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies coming Your way ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

As you all can see, I have taken a long time to write an article since the last one, End of A Very Long Journey ! This is mainly because after that end, I still had not found any, New Beginnings ! to write about. As always a beginning has to follow an end. Not knowing how to start writing again, I have looked in to this topic about, “The writer’s block” Well it seems to be that I fall under some of the views that is being said here !

block-3

There seems to be many different views by different people. Some do apply to me and maybe some of you also may come across these sometimes ? I found it an interesting topic and decided to write, as somehow I wanted to get back in to writing, and this is one of the advice I found, and hopefully this will help me to be posting articles here again 😛

block-4

I guess almost all of you are aware that when we write, we tap our inner wisdom and its almost like someone helping or dictating words to us. In my case I hear some words being prompted, and also almost like being whispered and I found that this was actually missing since recently. I found this quote to support what I am saying 😛

block-7

As I wrote at the beginning, nothing new has happened to me to write about. No one has asked any questions nor given any suggestions either. And as we all know sometimes how ever much we try, there is that specific time for anything to happen, and I have found that it applies for writing too 🙂

block-2

According to the above quote it says, writing block doesn’t exist, but then being unable to write and being stuck I feel it is some sort of a block. From what I have read and know, we all need a break from our usual routine to relax and charge our batteries as well as find new and fresh ideas. So it is for writing as I have found in this quote which says what to do and what not to do !

block-1

I am more on to the way of a perfectionist and this also is a reason that sometimes I take my own time to do things, as what ever I do, I want it to be that perfect piece of work, so writing also comes under that. I wonder how many of you share this trait with me ?

block-8

Although it is mentioned as a block, somehow I have managed to write an article about, “The Writer’s Block” itself. Yes it does go quiet unable to think of what to write and then it has come back suddenly, my head filled up with this topic that pushed me to write again which is a great relief 🙂

block-5

This is a time I have asked myself, “Why do I write” I started to write my story of becoming well and to share my experiences and knowledge for the benefit of others. At the same time writing/journaling is therapeutic to the mind. Writing is the only way, that you can pull out the feelings that are buried deep within your mind. It helps to declutter and reorganize yourself to begin a new chapter again. The quote below by, “Anne Frank” also says the same thing !

block-10

So when we write, it is our life, our own story that we write. It is known to us only and we write how and when we want to. Writing is being free, as we are all born free and being free is what makes us happy and joyful that leads us to find peace in our hearts, our ultimate goal in life 🙂

block-6

Then do we always become successful and popular writers ?  Or do we write because we like to write, to put forth our ideas that flood into out minds ?

block-9

So the answer is above, I am not sure if I should say we. But this applies to me, as I don’t earn anything from writing here, and sometimes there is hardly any response but yet I go on writing, because I like to write. I hope those of you read will give, some of your ideas/views on this ?

I hope you all enjoyed reading this article and share the same views with me, or anything new you can contribute ? For more information on writing, you can also look up my other article of, All About Writing !

Thank you all for reading. You may share and/or pass it on for others who will like and benefit from what I have written ❤

And thanking all the quotes I have shared from the I net ❤

P.S This is my latest update. As I have completely recovered and living free of depression, I needed a distraction, and to do something new and different. I have always liked poems and poetry, and I had this beautiful poem about the tree that I just started with that. But since then slowly I have begun to write my own little poems. Not only that, I was going beyond that and almost like catching up for lost time, the time I was down and was stagnating !!!
I was getting this strong need to express myself through creativity. My mind started to run into old interests and hobbies that I used to do. They have been growing in silence, and suddenly they have raised their heads up, pushing me to break through and open up myself to the world of color back again 🙂

To All My Dear Readers🙂

Its exactly one year since I started my blog. Since then I have grown, changed and moved on and keep on moving ahead. …. every time I write it seems I am turning another page. And this time it’s a whole big chapter. But before I begin again, and go on to the new one, I need to finish off this one🙂
Since last year although I was going ahead, it was mostly ending the things that was not working for me anymore. For instance moving away from being an English Tutor and working towards mental health was not happening as quickly as I wanted. I found that although you finish off with what you don’t want to do anymore, the new things do not come immediately. When one door closes, another does not open immediately always and I guess there is a meaning to it !!!
It was moving on from one scene to another and although it was not all that hard work still physically I did not feel as fit as I liked and needed to relax and re-energize.This happens with change, as the mind needs “Time to adjust to a different pattern” Although working from home sounds easy, when you go to do it, you find it’s a whole big change, a different pattern a different routine to get used to. There were other matters that challenged me and distracted me from the course I was doing, to the extent that got me anxious and was wondering if I had taken on too much too soon. Patience is not one of my virtues and all along I have had this need to move on with most of the new things that happen. And it’s continuing even now. One fact is as you keep on changing and evolving, what so many do not realize is that, “Your Energy/Vibrations changes within you” These can be seen outwardly too, as accordingly you tend to alter the way you dress, eat and do many other things differently !!!

Mind 12

This can be that you have gone back to who you were before everything fell apart, or you have moved on to a better way of thinking and doing things more positively. For me ? Its both. Looking back I can now see what happened to me. I drowned from all the put downs, the stress and got lost. Now, I am found. And yes sometimes it comes up so strong. Why ? What did I do wrong ? Why was it wrong to be me ? I did nothing wrong. I worked hard, very hard, towards the welfare of so many. So many benefited from My Strength, Assets and Abilities, and then I lost ?  The society the outside world does not see, or they see what they want. Sometimes people, “Wait to see others fall” as they think someone else has more or they are born rich, talented. Little realizing that all are given Gifts/Talents of their own to make use and Rise. But some of them decided to put me down, but in the process they fell. That is how life is. What goes around comes around, Good or Bad. “Now I have risen” I have built up on that very foundation, I am even a stronger person, who will Stand Tall, never to go down in any storm again. As long as you do not do harm or the wrong things, God, The Higher Powers. The Universe work for you🙂

A 75a

There is a sad part to this too. As then some of the people who are with you when you change no longer in the same energy field as you. Its not you are higher or anyone is lower. Its just that you have moved on to another energy level. Yes but that doesn’t mean everyone goes away completely. Even otherwise all those we come across even family, doesn’t stay with us all the time, everyday, one will go mad !!! Be it family or friends, being human beings we can rationalize and come to terms with another’s change and accept. No one changes from a human being to an animal. There are reasons to change. This is called the survival of the fittest. A human being changes according to how he or she can manage to fit in and live peacefully in an ever changing world. This has to be Understood by all intelligent human beings. That is why we are humans. Because we have brains and mind to think and rationalize !!!

Change 3a

With all these roller coaster life I have gone through, some have Not understood and moved away, despite trying to explain. In life you lose some and gain some we have to accept that. But then right now there is a Wonderful group of people around me. In real life where I have worked and moving around. Friends and family who have always stood by me, if not I would not be writing here. If I was not found, on my escapes suddenly into the nights running in fear, without knowing why there is No Deepa Nilamani today, and I am most grateful to them. I cannot imagine myself what I had become. Somehow I guess I had to live to tell the story for so many others for them to know and have hope🙂
Yes there is a new family growing now, the I net family. Face Book and now many Bloggers have and are connecting daily. Some are very young, who have started to look up to me for strength. So many talk to me. Some have gone through worse and my heart aches for their pain. But they take comfort from what I write and take Strength from My Strength. We all have begun to share and support each other. Its a very satisfying feeling that I can give Hope and Strength to others, from the darkness I have gone through. So that they too can Rise Up and pull another out of their darkness. And so the chain goes on !!!
I am Thankful and Grateful to everyone who has become My Family now, A Soul Family, brothers and sisters. Sons and daughters. And together we go on, “Lighting other’s Paths, Comforting and giving Strength when another is weak. As in Life we all go down at certain times and we all need a helping hand to pull us up. We are One❤

I hope you enjoyed reading and learnt something new and useful from this. If there are others who can make use of this please do share or pass it on. Thank you for reading 🙂

I wish you Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers. 🙂

World 4a

I started this blog to spread the message on mental wellness. We all go through some form of difficulties in Life. And I too have gone through mine. Due to the ups and downs I went through one after the other, suddenly the last incident pushed me to a break down, and I became a victim of depression. For fifteen years I battled depression as well as bipolar disorder. Since  middle of June 2014 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. The world opened up to me 🙂
Knowing what it is be depressed, and because of the stigma attached to it, many do not want to go for treatment, making it worse and even ending their valuable lives. Getting out of long term depression is like a miracle. There were so many who asked how and also my doctor encouraged me to write, for the benefit of others. The reason I started this blog is, I want to show the world that depression can be overcome and even Bipolar disorder can be controlled. And being mentally ill is no different to being physically ill. As mind and body are together. Mental illness also can be cured or controlled and they also can be normal as everyone to live with dignity in the world 🙂
I am studying psychology ~ counselling and psychotherapy, at the moment to give back the knowledge and experiences I acquired. But make note that, this is not exactly counselling, but this is, “My Journey on how I overcame depression and mood disorder” I hope all those reading my blog will learn something new, or remember what you already know. And make use of them to lead a better and happier life 🙂

P.S This is my latest update. It’s almost three years since I wrote this, and today it’s the 20th of May 2018. I have completely recovered and living free of depression now, that means it has gone into remission 🙂
I will be updating some of the old articles with my new knowledge and added experiences and also for the benefit of those who are new to the blog, as well as to confirm that it is possible to overcome and become completely well too. Now that my mood is even more uplifted, my choice of colours and posts have changed too accordingly. My eye goes to new pictures that resonate with how I am feeling now that I am feeling very much positive than when I was feeling unwell.. It does happen. You too can come out into the light and live Happily 🙂

So this is my other website: https://deepanilamani.com/home/
I have started this as relaxation since some time back, which is more of the poems that I have started to write. Please do have a look into it, to see what I am up to and if some of you like what I post. Thank you very much ❤

Like other groups throughout history, people with a mental illness have been marginalized, discriminated against and made to feel like second class citizens. Others refused to tolerate it, why should you ?

By Standing Up for Mental Health, you’ll let others know:

  • There is nothing “wrong” with having a mental illness.
  • People with a mental illness are not alone in what they are dealing with.
  • People with a mental illness shouldn’t feel ashamed or forced to hide their mental illness symptoms and desire for effective treatment.
  • Mental health stigma will no longer be tolerated.Stand Up 1
