Growing Older ~ Young At Heart!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Today I thought of writing about a topic that seems to be an issue with so many, it is: “Growing Old”! We know that we all grow by the hour, day, months and years, and the general feeling is that life is short and time is limited. It is true that as human beings we do have a limited span of life but, “How I believe is that ~”Life is how much you put into the years and Not count life in years” 🙂

ZZZ 16aa
Different people have different views on aging …but I believe we need to have a very positive outlook about us getting older by the years. Because life is precious and life is to live well. Each day we have is a gift, that we are able to learn as time goes by, new things, meet new people and see many new places and expand our knowledge and lead a better life. Don’t you think so 🙂

ZZZ 13
There are some who has been asking, why the quotes are mostly regarding ladies as actually most of the pictures are with female figures somehow! So here I have posted quotes from both, a well known film actress, Audrey Hepburn and a famous poet and lecturer Ralph Waldo Emerson!

We can grow old gracefully, becoming wiser, with the inner beauty shinning out, which is the true beauty, or we can become worried that years are passing by and the end is near 😛 But as human beings we are able to choose. We can read, and so much of resources are available to educate ourselves, think and make choices on how to decide the best ways of living healthy and living life to the full. So why do we have to really worry so much about growing older? How do you feel and think about growing old?

ZZZ 11a

Growing old by the day actually is physical, because as we we are growing we become more experienced and add more knowledge, and if we work at it the mind can become very advanced and we are able to gain true wisdom. Physically too we can keep our bodies active, and with a healthy diet we can be fit and healthy well into our older years, as to say. Life is full of mysteries and surprises, we can keep ourselves entertained from all that. My belief is, we all do grow but we can stay young in our hearts and minds 🙂

ZZZ 14
The post below goes for men too. Generally with maturity most people gain so much knowledge and are full of experiences that, people cannot just take them for granted or put them down and make them feel inferior. Unlike when young, one is able to stand up for oneself and answer back with wisdom and not tolerate unnecessary drama. I as a older person can definitely vouch for that 😀

Picture 7
There is so much to live in the years we have in our span of life. It is not the years but how much we put into the years that we can live. Its true that most of us do have to slow down somewhat from our very young years, but that doesn’t mean we stop doing the things we like and living well. There is a misconception that as you grow older the brain loses its ability be active as young but, “Medical evidence shows that ~ what we loose with age is very minute and that it does not slow down our thinking or power of learning so ~ “Age need not prevent our learning” But of course just as our physical self we need to exercise our brains too to keep it working to the full. I will expand and write about this in the next article. In the meantime, I urge you to “Live Your Life to the Full and forget about your age” 😀

I hope you enjoyed reading the article and learnt something new. You may share/pass it on to others who can benefit from what I have written. I would like to hear your views too about growing old. Thank you very much for reading ❤

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

The Power of Hand Writing!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Hope all of you are keeping well and happy. Today I thought of  Writing about the value of writing by hand. As in this increasing digital age, so many have, and are turning to type and swipe, on the computers, laptops, I pads and phones than using pencils or pens to write by hand. In my case I do use all that but, have always liked to write by pens and pencils too from my school days, and still continue to write using my various pens to write. How many of you still still love Writing by hand?

W 1

A study in psychological science has been found that students who take down notes by hand, rather than by laptops are better able to remember and grasp the subject. This is because when we are Writing by hand we tend to concentrate and write slowly, be more selective, rephrase and summarise, and choose the most important information, to include in the notes. This makes the brain works more efficiently and we are able to understand the content clearly and memorize better 🙂

W 3a
The studies with small kindergarten children also showed that, those who learnt the alphabet by Writing exercises, learnt it faster and better than those learning from the key board system. On the whole children both young and old, acquired a better understanding of the language, and were better able to express more ideas with a multitude of  Words !

W 2

Writing  journaling are excellent ways for understanding and recovering from stress and Trauma ! In my opinion, the best way to put the mind in order is writing out what is going on in the mind. Typing out also yes but, “Writing  by hand puts in that extra effort and forces out something from inside of you, that cannot really happen from typing” As the hand yields to the emotions inside of you, and helps better to let go or organize your mind in a much better way ❤W 4aaEvidence from new research show the psychological benefits of handwriting. How those who wrote by hand, were more likely to find relief from anxiety, fear and worry than those tapping on a computer. It also shows that jotting down our thoughts and feelings not only help people understand and recover from stress and Healing ~ Trauma ! but also help those with chronic conditions such as asthma and arthritis, those recovering from surgery and even those battling terminal or life-threatening diseases !

W 14

The fact that some who rarely or never use handwriting as an outlet to express themselves, is a sad fact as journaling is so helpful in clarifying one’s thoughts!

W 9

Writing by hand is a very personal and creative experience. I know as I am very fond of writing by hand. It helps one to be more aware of what is going on in the mind and helps the mind to stay in balance, healthy and happy. So why don’t you try too? If by now if you have not tried 😛

W 11a

Thank you for reading. I hope you found some new information from what I have written. It’s an article of my knowledge and also from many sources from what I read, that I have written for your benefit. Please do share or/and pass on to others who can make use of it ❤

Chakra 2

Hope all of you are finding what I write useful and the two articles on End The Stigma!was an eye opener. I am continuing the Chakra Healing! This is after the 1st Chakra Healing ~ Muladhara! The 2nd Chakra, which is called Svadisthana or the Sacral Chakra!

Chakra 2a

The Sacral Chakra is the 2nd energy centre. This is located below the naval and above the pubic bone. The reason it’s said, that it is the sexual centre is because, below the naval is where the reproductive organs are, and then the large intestine and the bladder also to do with this Chakra!
The colour that influence this Chakra is Orange so, Orange fruits like, Papaya, Mangoes, Oranges, Peaches and vegetables like Carrots, Pumpkins and Sweet Potatoes support this Chakra. The Element is water so, healing happens best around places to do with water like, the sea, lakes or rivers. It can be walking, sitting or just relaxing in water or swimming, but it all depends whether you are stressed and need to relax and slow down, or move fast and energize. So you need to know, what your issue is and what to do exactly to balance this Chakra. I have found this picture quote from the I net, Pinterest to see clearly, what I am saying about and even more information 🙂

Chakra 12
The Sacral Chakra is very much to do with Creativity, and there are many activities you can do to balance this Chakra. Art, painting and drawing brings a sense of calmness and relaxation, and also singing and dancing are excellent activities to bring this Chakra to be balanced. I will be writing separate articles, of the values of other activities as well as, music, singing and dancing later on 🙂

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! 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 🙂

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 ❤

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 🙂

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 My Dear Readers ❤

Chakra 1aa
Hope all of you are keeping well. I see many of you have read the article on Chakra Healing!and I believe most of you found it interesting and useful. Today I am writing about, “The First of the 7th Chakras, which is the ~ Base or Root Chakra which is also called Muladhara” 🙂

Root 10

This is all about courage and is associated with security, mental stability, survival and prosperity. It is also about keeping ourselves balanced and grounded, because it’s element is Earth 🙂

Root 5

The reason to say, “Balanced and to stay grounded” is because, “We are all energy and part of mother earth and, it is important to match our energy to mother earth so that we are able to stand straight and go about in life in keeping with her energy levels. In addition to the energy centers in the palms of our hands, there are small chakras/energy centers in the soles of our feet. Earth energy is pulled up from mother earth and up our legs so that we can be balanced. You can have a clear idea from this post below, where the energy centers are 🙂

Root 6

An under active Root Chakra can be helped by eating, Red fruits and vegetables like, Red Apples, Strawberries, Raspberries and Tomatoes, Radish, Beet and Red Peppers. Anytime you feel not grounded or imbalanced the best solution is to take off your shoes and walk bare feet on grass or in the beach, or any place in nature that you can connect naturally to earth, as close as possible ❤

Root 12
As you see there is medical evidence that when we walk bare feet, we are able to connect with earth, and it is very helpful in improving and curing some of our ailments!

Root 13

Read up and see what is relevant with what concerns you and, you can find strength by keeping to the above solutions and also keeping to these affirmations below, to have confidence and courage ❤

Root 9
We each of us are unique to each other and have different personalities and different way of dealing with life’s difficulties and challenges. The society, the world is full of good and the bad both, just like happy and sad. I too have gone through immense pain, stress and trauma and I know what pain and sadness is.  “True some of you may have gone through much more trauma, stress and grief that the normal person could not have coped”. Still from all what I have gone through, I believe as human beings we have so many ways and chances/choices to somehow find solutions of healing ourselves to some extent, so that we are able to lead a normal and peaceful life. Because by overcoming our experiences, we can in turn give our hand to another to heal, thereby further healing ourselves ❤

A 57
There is so much of satisfaction, to see healing of another from what I have gone through, and in a way, it “Justifies all the wrong and injustice I have had to face” Try to look at the positive side as much as possible. It is no fun leading a life of sadness. Life will always bring challenges to overcome and move on  to the next step. That is how life is. Push back the past and move on with strength and courage. We are all born for a unique purpose in life as I have always believed and said in my articles, as well as others also who say so. For the brave and the compassionate there will be always work to be done, to uplift and make the world a better place. A path to follow. We all have our own work, our own paths. If I can so can you ❤ Why? Because You are also a person like me and You also matter ❤ You are Worthy ❤ And You Can ❤

S 7
Life Matters. Not only my life but others life too. I regard all life valuable. I know life is full of ups and downs, But a Big but! “I somehow Try” Face challenges even with difficulties, push past and find solutions. New and positive things keep on turning up just as difficulties. We can make use of them and keep on growing. Life is all about, keep on growing and moving on isn’t it. As change is the only constant in life ❤

Root 7
Well I have written after a bit of a long pause, due to a stressful time I went through. I read in another article, that we all go through a pace where we go quiet and come to a stop, from what we are doing. That, “dormancy is a regular part of nature – but at the same time we can encourage ourselves to somehow come out of it and move on without stagnating” I am Thankful to that writer who had written it as after reading it, it made me to somehow, push myself and overcome my dormant state, come back from sleeping, and continue the articles on chakra healing. Only I do not want to sound arrogant by saying I have found myself, “a far greater person than before” which is in the quote 😛

Thank you for reading. You may share and/or pass it on to others who can benefit from what I have written. There is so much information/knowledge also on books, and on the I net free, if and when you want to find out more facts on chakras or even any other topic. I also can answer any questions that you may have, from my knowledge and experiences, if you need from the comment box below ❤

P.S. As some of you have mentioned that you were not so much aware of the Chakras and also about the benefits of walking barefoot ect, I have found this wonderful post from Pinterest ❤

Chakra 11
There is so much information on, Nutrition, Crystal Therapy, Sound Therapy, Yoga, Reflexology and Healing with Nature. I am sure you all find this very interesting and useful, as even I have found out things that I was not aware of. There is so much knowledge in books, magazines and on the I net freely that we can learn new things everyday, and expand our knowledge and uplift ourselves to live better and happier 🙂

Those of you who are interested in poetry, I will be delighted if you have a look in my personal web site:https://deepanilamani.com/

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

An update of my progress over the year 2017 up to now, today being the first day of 2018. Last year was quite a roller coaster ride. As I believe I faced the biggest challenges in my life, which came almost one after another. All of which I have faced bravely and overcome. This is because I intensified my meditation and praying, resulting myself going through a massive energy change, which in turn has set in many physical changes in my favor. Prayers are good energy/vibrations and sound helps heals illnesses by balancing our chakra system!

Chakra 2

Sound not only changes you physically but it changes your mental status too. As when the energy changes within, the whole body and mind is affected, here in a good and healthy way. Actually I have studied and was aware of the chakra’s, but not had experiences of the chakra’s balancing, and once they do, I found the seventh chakra which is the third eye becomes active. So actually the challenges here, “Came as blessings  in disguise – as if they didn’t come in so hard and strong – I would not have prayed so very hard and strong to counter act”!

Chakra 3
It has really made my outlook much broader. I sense and understand life much more than I did before, and still moving on with it. Above all I have become much more settled and at peace. My purpose was  to help others heal through my experiences, and now I have been given even better tool for it. I have let gone most of the material things and people in order to attain it. In a way it is through, “Pain and heartache” But it a big achievement as it is not an easy thing to achieve and a, “Gift for Healing” It is not magic it is not a physical eye it is:

Eye 2
In life as human beings we can achieve so much. We do not have to be highly qualified itself to be able to do something. I have come this far trying to help others through my experiences, and look what I have got in turn. Anything done with a good heart never goes waste. There are so many things that money cannot buy which you can never put a value. You who is reading, know that there is always a solution for any issue, and when you really try hard you can over come and end up even stronger than you were before 🙂

Eye 9
There is so much of free information on the I net other than books to refer to. Prayers and meditation takes you a long way in healing, but you need to go in a moderate way. You must not and cannot hurry. It takes not days but months and months of practice, with dedication, sacrifice and persistence. Also to be achieved mainly for pure service. Hope you enjoyed what I have written and learnt something new. Please share and pass it on to those who can make use of it to, take their lives in to the next level of healing and knowledge. Thank you for reading ❤
