End The Stigma!

Hello To All 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 ❤
Food 1What 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!
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 ❤

Card 1

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” ❤

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 ❤

Love 2

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 ❤

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

End The Stigma ~ Discrimination Stops with You!

Hello To My Dear Readers ❤

Stigma 14

I hope you all enjoyed reading the first two articles on the chakras Chakra Healing!. 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, 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!

Stigma 9
I have written before too, that millions world over are going through depression Healing from ~ Depression ! and other mental health problems. And the world Health Organisation has stated that depression Healing ~ Desire To Heal ! will be the biggest cause of health burden by 2030!

Stigma 13

In Australia alone, one in seven experience major depression Courage to Heal ~ 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 so many 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 Power of the 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 11
As someone who has completely overcome, why I am writing The Power of Hand 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 3
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!

Stigma 5

Dealing with Those who Try to Break You!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Thanking all those who read my articles and comment, like and follow my blog. Hope all of you are keeping well and finding what I write useful in some way to further enhance and advance your life ❤
I don’t know if this topic is relevant to everyone, but this is something that I have had to be facing since sometime. We all know that mental illnesses are not recognized and understood, even by some of the so called educated people. Why I say, “so called educated people” is, if people are really educated, then they cannot be ignorant of the fact that mind becomes ill just like the body. As where is the mind? In the body! Then how can mind not become ill? Then why does mental illnesses looked down upon or seen them as some outcasts in the society?
It is well known that world over depression is a serious issue threatening the future. The world Health Organisation has stated that depression will be the biggest cause of health burden by 2030. There are millions who are depressed and millions yet to come. Suicide rate is going up. Valuable time and live’s are lost. So many kind and compassionate people are working, fighting to ease this problem in various fields, not only in the field of medicine. Communities have got together as groups, clubs to work towards helping in healing through hobbies, sports, physical and many mental therapeutic activities as well. What I am doing also here in my blog is , in a small way is contributing my knowledge and experiences towards those who can make use of them to know that they also can control and recover enough to be well and lead a normal and happy life. It is to show by example, “To give Hope” to those still battling!
But as life has it, I am having to deal with an issue of, not only of ignorance but, “Knowingly trying to confuse and push me back” In these circumstances what would you do? Do you think it is a kind and compassionate thing to do to another human being who has gone through such an ordeal through years and lifted her head up, and now is working towards the benefit of others, quietly with no harm or disturbance to anyone? What motive and mind set do you think this type of people have? As in the society there are many types of destructive people. How do you deal with them?

Courage 2

At the present stage of my life I have learnt to take them as, challenges that I have to face in order to overcome and become stronger. As we need challenges to test our strength and to move on to the next level of our lives. Life throws us curve balls from time to time and we do get shaken, but we can deal with them in many ways. Overcoming long term depression is not a small task, that shows, Strength, Courage and Patience, and above all Faith in the Powers above. I pray during sickness and sadness, for good health, in happiness, thankfulness and gratitude, daily morning and night, for myself and others. This is, where I derive, “My Strength” The Divine Powers which some have no clue. They think they can do anything and get away. For the moment yes. But not long term!

Courage 4
There is no way that negativity can bring down the positive. Dharma, Righteousness does always overcome evil. Light always chases the darkness away. My name by birth itself is, “Light” Darkness can never defeat me. It is a Lion himself who named me, “Light” and, his spirit is guiding me. I lead my life in accordance to, “The Laws of The Universe” I adhere to to the correct principles in life. I give. I donate. I share what I have with anyone. Even this blog is giving and sharing, as I am sharing my knowledge and life experiences with others. “It is the gift of knowledge that brings the the Highest Blessings according to Buddhism”. So how can those who are morally deteriorated, put me down or anyone else who lives according to the, “Laws of The Universe” for that matter. “Do Not, ever get discouraged or let anyone put you down for no reason” Take every experience, as a challenge, to gain strength, courage and confidence and to achieve your goals and Win ❤

Courage 5

I have found that, these are things that happen in the society not only to me but some others too. Some do not want others to rise up. Sadly they don’t know that helping another is helping themselves also. In giving you receive. In blessing you are blessed. What goes around comes around. They are “The laws of The Universe” that applies to all. Abiding by them, “The Universe Guides, Help and Supports us 🙂

I hope you like what I have written and found somethings useful. As these are things we all face in life from time to time. You can share/pass on to others who can benefit from what I have written. Thank you for reading ❤

Online Psychological Therapy !

Hello To My Dear Readers 🙂

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 ❤

brain-1

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 ❤

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 ❤

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 ❤

Beginning of A New Chapter!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Hope you all are keeping well. I have taken a while to come here, as I am going through some major changes in my life and needed to settle my mind before writing. We are changing everyday, but from time to time we do go through major changes from one phase to another. These can be work, relationships, children, money or anything at all, but usually they go together with one’s age 🙂
From children we become adults and with that, jobs, marriage and our children come in. I feel that this middle chapter takes almost half of our life span. Although there are many major changes within this period as children mature, its only when they finally leave home, comes the next major change. Parents feel their absence and a long line of things they did suddenly comes to an end and they are left with a big hole or a gap that needs to be filled, in their hearts as well as in their lives. This is called as the empty nest syndrome and is mostly felt by the mother as usually its the mother who is around them while father’s are more at work. But then it can be for the father too or for both the parents, depending on who is more closer to the children when they are growing up. At the same time usually the parents are also close to their age of retirement from their jobs which makes it even harder to digest !!!
For me I have now passed this middle chapter and was mostly concentrating on my work.  And now that too seems to have come to an end which is another huge life change. I find that in life we cannot, master two completely different topics well, at the same time. Once I began to heal and started to get back into my normal life, my mind was full of ideas on healing. For me, being involved in teaching English, and Healing became two completely different things. I found my mind was constantly pulling on to what was going on my life at the time, which was all about health and healing. I had made a huge effort to come out of depression and naturally my mind was full of all that and my whole life took on to another path !!!
Although there was a detour, I still continued working as a part time English tutor, but I did not find enough satisfaction as its not all who value when someone is trying to teach them free. They do not understand how much of time, energy and sacrifice that is put in for volunteering. When engaged in the process of giving, “in any life situation not only in work, be it outsiders, friends or family one needs to feel appreciated in some form. As in life its, “Both giving and receiving. Its then only the real giving process is complete” ❤
I faced a situation where I felt rejected. Rejection is a very strong word, which has a very negative effect. It can come in many forms. It can be in the way of comparing with others, belittling you, putting you down, avoiding, in short its a total lack of caring and disrespect towards another. This makes the rejected person feel let down, unwanted, insulted and it gives a feeling that you have failed as a person or/and in what ever you have been entrusted with. It loses one’s confidence and a sense of worth and its not easy to overcome them just like that. It can take a toll on ones mind and you can become depressed and ultimately mentally ill. Actually these are exactly the situations that pushes normal people to become not normal and having to struggle to become normal again. Then there are very few to acknowledge or to give a hand to pull you up. I know this and exactly why I am writing and doing this blog ❤
Rejection is one of the worst things that can happen to someone who is depressed or even come out of depression. Yes I am out of it, but as we all know many illnesses, be it physical or mental can lift their heads up given the right conditions. They go into remission and are like seeds waiting for the rains to come out from their hiding places. Its not easy for people like us, as we can’t be running to the counsellor or the therapist all the time like little children to the mother 😛
But its when suddenly things hit you hard, and usually its not one there can be a few of the stones falling on your head at the same time, that we find it difficult to cope. Then what do we do ? I had been wanting this change from work, But I didn’t stop I was just going on. Very often in life, although we know its time we made that change, we don’t usually make major changes all by ourselves. This is the time when, God/The Universe/The Higher Powers decide to step in. We get a push. How ? Being hurt, disappointed or being rejected. And if we don’t take it we get a bigger push until it hits us hard and we are almost forced to take that decision. This is why it’s said that, we are given the same lesson over and over again if we don’t listen or make those changes we need in order to move on in life !!!
So when things get shaken up, if you take them up as challenges, you can really benefit from them. As you then, stop what ever you are doing and have a very good look at what’s going on with your life at that moment, and think is this what I want ? What is life telling me ? Stress and pain acknowledged with wisdom, helps you to find that exact venture, the path that you are really supposed to follow ❤

Priority 1a
When things don’t really work for you and you keep on getting pushed, you feel, “This has gone on long enough, I do not want to cry or keep on going through this pain. I need to live better, “Then that will be the exact time of your turning point, of making that decision to make that change. As that will be heard by your mind and, “Unknown to you, the mind will be working towards it” It will be letting go of the unwanted and streamlining your life to serve you better. For this you need to prioritise. To clean your life from the clutter and to know exactly what you want from life 🙂

A 22

In my case I have been isolating myself completely. All phones off and no sound no nothing just eating, sleeping and relaxing in silence. Its then that your mind becomes clear and you find out/realise, “What you really want from life. What will make you happy. How you can achieve it” We cannot depend on others, as most of them don’t understand, or they are not there when we need them. That is exactly how it is too. Because it’s not other’s job to think or decide for us. Its our life and its we who know what we want. And if sometimes you find there is no one to ask, “This is because its you alone that has to find your own answers. As its only you that know who you are exactly and what You want from life. And then you need to be strong and brave enough to take that step and start all over again 🙂
