When We Forget Our Blessings!

Hello To My Dear Readers ❀

This may not apply to everyone, but I have realized, that sometimes we are so focused on running behind things, or find life is being difficult, we forget about all the things and blessings we already have, and then usually we are given a reminder or a message in someway. I was told this by my mother, “That when you tell your challenges to someone, they will tell their story, and you will wonder what ~ “you are complaining about”! So this has been happening to me sometimes, and since recently too, that has made me to write this article!

A 62

Although extreme challenges are not faced by each and everyone, I know there are some more than others, who has and are going through, very hard times due to problems in health, relationships and finances or all of them at once, that somehow it seems, life is not fair to them. I don’t know how exactly to explain this but, in life in every situation, “There are exceptions”. But from my experiences I can tell that, although initially it seems like that, later on when we look back, all that make sense. Those who face and overcome the toughest battles end up the strongest souls. So do, “Hold on to your Faith and be Patient, until things move in your favour at the correct time ❀

A 61
So I am one of these people who have gone through, very tough battles and know what life’s difficulties are. As a compassionate human being, I find it very difficult to see the innocent and those without a voice go through pain and unnecessary suffering, and have always had this great need to, “Heal and bring Peace and Happiness to mankind and animals alike” This is a long held dream and I have worked very hard for a long time, towards this cause with sheer Dedication and Sacrifice. And it is such a great feeling of relief to see that, “My Dream is being realized now” πŸ™‚

A 63
As “We are all born unique to each other” the challenges that we face are not the same, and hence our paths or our mission in life also differs according to our uniqueness. In the same way, our Blessings also come in different ways. The important thing we need to remember is that, “We are All Blessed in some way, and to be Aware of it Always” ❀

A 64

How do you feel about the Blessings in your life? Do you think you are Blessed or sometimes do you forget or lose Faith like me? As we are all human beings, we are not perfect and here and there when things happen to upset us, we do wonder, question about the process of life. When this happens something I do is to turn to prayer. The Power of Prayers! is my Strength, Medicine for all ailments, and answers to all my questions. Let me know your views too. Until then I send you Many Blessings ❀

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

Hope all of you are keeping well and Happy. Last article I wrote aboutΒ Things We Love to Do!Β 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 πŸ™‚

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 ❀

Thank you for reading. I hope you found some useful hints to better your life. Any questions are welcome. You may share and/or pass it on for others who can benefit from what I have written ❀

Hello To My Dear Readers ❀

Stigma 14

So many have appreciated and given a good response to my first article, End The Stigma ~ Discrimination Stops with You!Β that I am bringing you further information and proof that, we need to end the stigma on, “Mental Health” and see that those who need help in making their minds well, are free and able to seek medical help, and become well and be healthy and happy people, to be an asset to the progress of the society and the world. We all know that, the mind is also in our body and we need to have both our body and mind in good health to be able to lead a normal and happy life, for ourselves and to be of help to others. We do take care of our eyes, teeth and other parts of our body isn’t it. So why not the mind too ❀

Stigma 15
What some people are not aware is that even as children, those who become unwell or have certain issues while growing up, they need to have medical help. Or they will grow up to be sick and confused adults, not knowing who they are and what they need to do in their lives and become a problem to their families, the society and the world!

Stigma 16
All walks of life are concerned, and so many are working towards a society and a world of people who are healthy in their mind as well as the body. This includes even, “The Royal Family” who are openly working in public and even has a “Face Book page” dedicated to this cause, named, “Heads Together”!

Stigma 19

With all due respect to, “The Duke and Her Highness The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry”, I am sharing this photo from the “Face Book page” ~ “Heads Together” to show the world that, Mental Health is NOT something to feel ashamed of, that mind also can become sick like the body!

Stigma 9

Those of you who are reading, and seeing all these posts, now need to be able to feel that, “YOU ARE NOT ALONE” ~ “YOU ARE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING” ~ “YOU ARE VALUABLE” and do not be shy or afraid to go to a doctor, or some medical help anytime you have issues with your mind. “IT IS NOT BEING MAD” as some people think. “IT IS JUST THAT YOUR MIND ALSO HAS THE RIGHT TO BE A LITTLE ILL and NEED SOME MEDICATION and LOVING KINDNESS” ~ “IT IS YOUR LIFE AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU” ~ “YOU NEED TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF” ❀

Stigma 12
I hope reading all these has inspired and encouraged you to seek help and become, “The SURVIVOR from ~ The Victim” and in turn to tell, “YOUR STORY” to others to encourage them too” And, “HELP END THE STIGMA”? YOU CAN AND YOU WILL πŸ™‚

Stigma 17

Thank you very much for reading. I sincerely hope all this will help you, or/and some other person whom you know can benefit from all this. Please share/or pass it on ❀

Thanking The HUFF POST and the FACE BOOK for the picture quotes ❀

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies to You ❀

May God’s Blessings be upon You ❀

Hello To My Dear Readers ❀

Stigma 14

I hope you all enjoyed reading the first two articles on the chakras. I am taking a break and writing on a very important topic which is about the, “Stigma in Mental Health” The reason I thought of writing this topic is, now after almost 5 years since it was declared that, “I have come back to normal”, there are some who are still trying to classify me as unwell. The disappointing fact is, this is to do with some people whom I thought knew me very well, that are like family, that my eye went to this quote. These people seems not to have, “Any sort of experiences, knowledge and are clueless about mental health to know that, “I have come so far in attaining knowledge not only on mental health and also on other matters in life. And now that, “I am mentally healthy and also a motivator” I cannot understand how some can see me otherwise!

*IF YOU THINK YOU ARE MENTALLY WELL JUST SPEND ONE DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY*
Site 1

I have written before too, that millions world over are going through depression and other mental health problems. And the world Health Organisation has stated that depression will be the biggest cause of health burden by 2030!

Stigma 13

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. But why does it have to be different from being physically sick?

Stigma 8
When there are even Royalty and World leaders who support and work towards improving mental health and acknowledge mental illness are also, just like physical illnesses, there are some others even highly educated, who are foolish enough to be ignorant of what mental illnesses are. And this is what is causing the stigma and preventing people seeking medical help to get themselves better!

Stigma 1
There are so many who suffer from various physical illnesses. They do get better and overcome them, even cancer goes into remission and then they go about as normal human beings. Then Why? when the mind becomes ill and becomes well and/or goes into remission they can never get over the label as mentally ill? Mind is also part of the body, it is not outside floating somewhere! Why cannot people as human beings with good brain power cannot think of this?

Stigma 7
As someone who has completely overcome, why I am writing is, to do my duty even in a small way, in standing up for those who are going through their own problems. As, if as many as those who can speak out on behalf of the people who are in need of support and enlighten the society, the world what mental issues are, the world will be a better place with more healthy and happy people πŸ™‚

Stigma 11
Are you ready to support? To stand up? Or are you one of those who try to push and see others fall? But the fact is, we are all connected. All of us are energy and one goes down it affects all the others like the ripples in the water. Why is it that some are unable to support others and see them rise up? As, “We Rise by Lifting Others” Are you Ready to support to, “Stop the Stigma”? We are all soul brothers and sisters. One family that belongs to each other!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

I welcome all the new bloggers, followers and readers with happiness, and a big thank you for the old and the new readers. We are growing and I am glad that so many are finding what I write useful. Most of all it gives me great pleasure in giving out my knowledge and experiences for the benefit of others welfare ❀
Its over one year since a wicked soul robbed some of my confidential documents and some other sentimental things, to confuse and upset me, knowing what my mental condition was. Against all odds I have completely overcome the situation and bounced back even stronger. I was told by my doctor that it was a good test to see how I could cope, and how strong I have become mentally, which is a great leap forward. Yes to have gone through that storm, has certainly given me more confidence and further strengthened me πŸ™‚

Adversity 2a
We all know in life, things keep on changing and we need to adapt and change with the current situations. Each change is a challenge, a test that comes for us to overcome to go to the next level. You can take these tests as how ever you believe in, by Almighty God, The Higher powers or The Universe. All living beings even the trees and what ever in nature, the whole environment goes through these changes. Our survival depends on, “How successfully we face and adapt to these changes” πŸ™‚

Adversity 1
Once we have overcome these challenges, the curve balls life throws at us, we find we have come out as a different people, than before, with more strength and resilience to face even stronger challenges that come our way ❀

Adversity 3
When life hits you hard, when you face the storms and tornadoes that come upon you, that is when you need to be most calm. Take a step back, study the situation, stay strong, stay grounded and then you are able to know exactly how to tackle the challenges and tests that come as wild weathers of destructive storms and the tornadoes. As in life there are some things, that we can only learn during a storm!

Storm 3

I hope you liked what I have read and found something useful to make use of your stormy times. Please share and pass on to others who can make use of the article. Thank you fr reading ❀

Hello To My Dear Readers ❀

A year is ending and each ending is another new beginning. I hope those of you who celebrated Christmas did so, and had a good time together with family and friends, and also with less fortunate. Just like me almost all of you have gone through many tests and trials throughout this year and learnt many lessons from them. As we know all tests are challenges for us to overcome, become stronger and go to that next level in life. I believe almost all of you know that diamonds are the result of charcoal which has gone under severe pressure. So how many of you have become diamonds now? Even halfway πŸ˜›

Courage 1a

When difficulties and stress come into our lives, and we go through storms and face challenges we are not happy. At that time we don’t think this is for the good of us, but they for our learning. If life just flows by, generally we do not attempt to go that extra mile/make that extra effort to polish ourselves and become a gem πŸ™‚

Courage 6a
There so many who have gone through extreme conditions and ended up tops in their fields or even finding new strengths to do things they have never dreamt of doing or achieving. For an example below is: Apolo Anton Ohno – an American short track speed skating competitor and an eight-time medalist in the Winter Olympics – Thanking Wikipedia ❀

Courage 2

There is something that all of you need to know, that tests and tribulations are not permanent nor do they come non stop until you die. Sure changes take place until our very last moment and that is how life is. The environment is changing and we also growing and changing with it. But once you learn what tests are and accepts them as part of life the process changes πŸ™‚

Courage 7

There comes a time when we realize that these tests come as messages, then this is “the time the messengers lose their importance in our lives” Why? We then come to understand how life works, and that these people have come into our lives as messengers only. The moment we see these people as messengers, that personal connection breaks off, we let go of the messengers and, “only accept the message. “They become nothing but messengers and once the message has been given automatically they move away or we do”. No one has to do anything, but it is a process in life. There is a shift of energy and the tie is broken off. So we don’t look to them as specific people but messengers that life has sent, andΒ  they don’t really bother as, “He or she said or did like this”!

Messenger 1

Life is mysterious, fascinating, complex, as well as simple. We need to face life as how it comes in a wise way, or else life becomes very complicated and there can be no way out. For this we need to develop the sixth sense, wisdom which is the third eye ultimately when wisdom develops to its full strength. The third eye is not a physical eye, but it is something that makes you to be able to feel, “see from your mind beyond what the normal eye or other senses are able to detect”. In short one becomes very sharp in sensing the surroundings and of those around you. They are better able to know and decide what is good and what works best for them in life. They don’t go with a halo round their heads, but they go about life doing what they have to in their own quiet way!

Courage 3a

I found this wonderful quote from the I net, which says it all. Sure I also have learnt along the way, and as normal human beings we do get upset and hurt although we are aware how life works. But as time goes by and you become mature adults, becoming wise you tend to look at life in a much broader way. Saying that, “It is not all mature people who are wise and it is not all young people who are foolish – there are foolish adults as well as very wise young people too” But one thing is sure, as after we have gone through all the tests and tribulations learning our lessons in the correct way, all the hard work pays as always in anything and everything we do. What ever you have gone through in life, if you have faced them bravely and done the right thing, the results would be immeasurable. You would have grown so much and achieved so much that the end result will be like the, “Rainbow after the rains and the pot of gold at the end of it” πŸ™‚

Courage 8a
As always hope you learnt something from this article. Please share and pass on to others who can make use of that is written. Thank you for reading ❀

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me to You ❀

-Deepa Nilamani-

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

A year is ending and. “All endings are another Beginning” As we go on in life everyday, each minute we are learning until the last day of our life. I learn from everyone, young or old, even animals and mother nature. We all need to keep on learning, as human beings we can take the wrong turn and need guidance from time to time and this is why, we all have two parents foremost, if not one then the other, teachers and religion. Because it is not like doing little mistakes when we are growing up, when we are older and mature we are aware what is wrong and right and knowingly harming others can lead to disaster. As human beings we have so many ways of educating ourselves on our own too and, as adults if we keep on doing the same mistakes, it leads one’s life into lot of trouble. This is not anyone’s doing but,Β  “It is according to The Laws of The Universe – what goes around comes around” It is not one but, ” We all come under this same law – no exception”!

Lion 13a
We can learn from many, but for all of us there is that one person, a role model, who really understand you and able look up to when in trouble for guidance. This can be a religious figure, teacher, friend or even sometimes we are guided from above, by a higher or a divine power that cannot be seen, but felt. Why? “Because we are all energy, one family, part of this universe. We all come from the same place and go back to the same place. Dust to dust Ashes to ashes”!

Lion 14
So this is in, “Gratitude to that person who was my role model when he was alive, and now no more but still guiding me from above. The Lion, “Who will Not let me fall” I am most Grateful for your Guidance, Protection, Blessings and “The Gift” ❀

Lion 12

Who also named me – “Light”. Ignorance means being in the dark, and depression is also called darkness. And it somehow happens, after years of his passing away, I happen to work towards helping/enlightening others, to come into the Light!

Lion12
There is so much suffering in this world right now. Illnesses, war and famine. This is all because of people thinking of being separate. Religion, colour and race are big problems. So many who have, do not want to give, share or donate to the needy. So much is being wasted when millions are suffering without basic food, water and health facilities. Love and Kindness is what is needed. If everyone can think what hurts oneself hurts the other person too will they do it? I wonder. This is why most of those who have gone through suffering emerge strong souls and work towards the welfare of others πŸ™‚

Lion 3

Money play a very big part in the world today to the extent the human qualities are being forgotten. Yes money is needed to pay bills no one gives us anything free, but there is so much money cannot do. What matters is who you are and your heart!

Lion 9

His advice, to be simple and work in silence. So have I. It is not advertising to the world who and what you are. It is being a good person and working in silence to the good of humanity!

Lion 8a
It has been a, “Very Long and Hard Journey” and I believe I have come to some sort of end. No one needs to tell you physically, when you go on the spiritual path, one is able to receive and know the signs and the messages. As again it is to do with Darkness and Light. It is said, “It is darkest before dawn” You know what an end is, But then ” Life begins again” For now I am at Peace πŸ™‚

Lion 4

So then I hope all of you liked the pictures and the lessons I have learnt from my spirit of the Lion. Ending my article, my mind never sleeps because:

Lion 12a
There are powers that the normal human eye or the mind cannot see. Developing wisdom, sixth sense or the third eye, through prayers or meditation will help to see beyond what the normal human senses are not capable of. Persistence and lot of hard work, but it is possible. There are many who has developed themselves spiritually, that go about in life quietly working towards the welfare of others, as advancement of the mind is not for publicity, but for pure service!
