Begin 8a

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

To give you an update of my life since I finally came to settle down here is Aussie. I completed eight years yesterday and looking back I have come a very long way. It is Not talking big but, letting you know how much I have achieved, so that those of you who are reading, get inspired and get Hope, that you too can overcome by working towards getting well. My main reason for doing this blog 🙂
My depression has gone into remission, and have been stable for almost 4 years now. Its quite a feat as I was under it for quite a long time, as long as almost 15 years. I have worked in TAFE as an ESL volunteer tutor for almost 5 years during that period, done some short courses and now continuing with the Diploma in Psychology. I have also completed 2 years writing in here, and today I was looking at the past articles and saw how much my writing has improved, along with my mood as well 🙂
Journaling or writing in anyway is very helpful as, it helps to put our minds in order. When we write we are able to understand so many things that are working in our minds that we were not aware !!!
Journaling is: writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. And if you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health ~ The I net.
Prayers or and meditation also helps in relaxation and to calm the mind, as well as gaining  wisdom which is the most important thing, to understand the process of life more clearly !!!
“Life works in a pattern we all know that the seasons come one after the other every year the same pattern, everyday the sun comes up in the morning and goes down in the evening and so on. So as we are all part of “The Universe”, and all of us fall under the same laws. Ad once we have done everything possible ~ we need to have Patience for them to work in its own way ~ In the Natural Order” We can also describe it as, “Going with the flow of life” 🙂

Actually it is through intense prayers and meditation that has brought me to this  stage of maturity, where I have come to understand many things in life and moved on to a complete different wave length from where I have been ~ which is the main reason for my almost complete recovery. It is something that all can achieve as it is a matter of changing one’s vibrations or energy, but “this has to be done with, great dedication sacrifice and persistence, long term”. As changing one’s energy or vibrations is a slow process and happens in a very delicate way, along with acts of offering merit to those who guide and protect you along the way. This is the value of the human being as we have choices and able to know and learn how to become well or get over difficulties !!!

Many do not think or understand this although they have studied science. Well even I have studied physics, but that was when I was very young and I didn’t know all this at that age. Everyone knows that in any religion, prayers are being said to heal the sick, so prayers are all good vibrations, which somehow with faith helps that person to feel better or sometimes completely recover. I have these experiences but it’s only very few who knows or believe that. As it is a, “Very Long process which I have done over time as I said before, with great dedication and sacrifice” One has to go over tests and tribulations time and time again until sometimes you are exhausted. At this stage of my life, knowing who I am, and what I have become is enough for me. I do not have that need to prove it to anyone. For those of you who believe in energy, This will be in my blog, spreading Good Energy constantly, for Good Health, Happiness and Prosperity.

Concentrate on it and feel or imagine positive energy flowing into you, cleansing you of the negativity, Healing and bringing you Peace and Happiness ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

Continuing from the last article, I am going to expand on, “why we need to take full responsibility for us to heal” This is because whatever the doctors, counsellors, therapists or medication does, unless we try our best, full healing cannot take place. “We need to have that necessity to become well and heal, very strongly so as to put in our very best efforts. You cannot feel you like a victim, that something or someone did something to you all the time as this is the worst thing that prevents/blocks healing. You need to let go of that thought pattern and, know that you are a, “Free person and you have Choices in life that you can change for your own welfare” ❤

In the process of healing, you need to be strong, courageous as well as gentle and patient with yourself. When you face difficulties its natural for you to go down physically and mentally. One becomes weak and the mood becomes low. Somehow you need to fight back and change this thought pattern and turn your mind towards being positive. You need to recognize your own power and reclaim it and become strong ❤

A 116

Taking full responsibility is for healing and Not taking any blame or guilt. As one gets hurt or upset is when one is blamed for things one has Not done or said. When this goes on for a long period stress eats into you and the mind begins to become sick, just like when you keep on over working and become physically exhausted, weak and sick. Stress can come in many forms not only from relationships but while in school, in work due to natural disasters like floods and fire also financial difficulties or sickness name it, in life we have many many challenges. You must not think this is only for you, as each and everyone faces some sort of challenge or challenges in life and all these are with a purpose. For us to face overcome and grow stronger 🙂

A 117
Each person has their own way to become well and heal. It is according to your personality and how it agrees and work for you. So you need to think try out and do the things that works best for you. Most importantly, “Remember it is Your Life. Your are the one Responsible for it to make it a better life and, for Your own Happiness. So it is You who must put in the maximum effort 🙂

Thank You all for reading. Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies ❤

God Bless !

Hello My Dear Readers 🙂

First of all may I wish you all a Very Happy New Year !

Yes I have not written for a month, as I had to recover from a very stressful period. Suddenly life threw a very hard curve ball at me which put me quite off my track and took me almost six months to get back on my feet again. Finally I have begun to raise my head up and getting back to my usual routine. This is not due to one person or one particular event, but a series of happenings over six months, that annoyingly almost pushed me back from all the hard work in the past !!!

Challenge 3

 

These disruptions happen to all of us in different doses at the most unexpected times of our lives, that throws us off balance completely sometimes. Luckily I held on and was a very good test of my strength. I did get stressed, anxiety set in getting drowsy, but I never got depressed. So its a very big comfort to me, to know that I will never fall into that darkness again what ever life throws at me. And that I can face challenges with courage 🙂

Challenge 2

I had settled myself and was going on with my work and studies, and did not expect any major disturbance like this. With this problem suddenly, my mind jumped on to another track trying to sort out this and hence there was a clash wanting to go on with my usual routine, and the mind trying to sort out another issue at the same time. This was high stress as the mind cannot cope with, two major issues at the same time. I had to stop almost everything that I was doing and take a complete break, as I needed a clear mind to solve the problem I had in hand. Unlike dealing with people, dealing with a system, one can be completely helpless, as the systems work according to very strict rules, which almost has no room for any personal needs unless life threatening serious problems. With all what is going on from one side, in life there comes a balance too as, when one system is stressing, I have got immense support from, the medical system. “They are people who really know the value of human life. Especially those who have struggled and come up and are trying to help others” They have faith and believe in my mission, my working towards encouraging and motivating others from what I have and going through. They cannot get me out of the system, but they can safeguard me from being unduly stressed so that I can get on with my life with all what I am doing. I am so very grateful and blessed to have such wonderful and caring people by my side. I thank them all the time, and they tell me when we are doing good to others, in turn they come back to us too 🙂

Challenge 5a

“I am like a tree ravaged by burning fire which has burnt over and over with time .. yet again, Risen, stronger every time even before the rains come. I rise over and over again like the bird of fire, the Phoenix 🙂

Challenge 4

My mind is finally settling down, writing here at length itself is a sign that my mind is back on track again. We come across so much of problems, due to various reasons. With all this, I went down both mentally and physically. When you feel weak in your mind automatically your physical health goes down too, due to lack of appetite, sleep and rest. I became so stressed that I could not even concentrate on my course. Which worried me thinking if I had taken on too much too soon. But thank goodness I am able to put my mind on to it again !!!

challenge-2a
Challenges are part and parcel of life, they come for us to face and learn more, and become stronger. That is how we move on to higher grounds. I have sat down and thought of ways how I can face them better next time. I have joined a group exercise class as doing things with others there is a different atmosphere as well companionship when one is living alone. Your good hormones start to work to make you more positive and you can lose some weight and have a better shape too 😛
There will be a next time and a next time for challenges. Every time we fall we need to rise again and again to face the world with more strength and courage. As human beings that is possible. This is the beauty of human life. We can always learn and plan better and keep on moving, becoming better and better as long as we live. Isn’t that true ?

Challenge 1a

 

Hope you learn something new from what I have written and then pass on to another of what you learn. That again is the beauty and the value of knowledge. Knowledge is enhanced when shared and it travels far and wide like the ripples all over the world, touching so many others, and lifting up the darkness and lighting their lives with colour and beauty 🙂

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me. May you find Joy and may you find Happiness and Peace 🙂

Hello To All My Dear Readers. 🙂

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 🙂

path-4
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 at the moment to give back what I have got, but this is not counselling. 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. Its two years since I wrote this, and today it’s the 8th of October 2017. 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 colors and posts have changed too accordingly. My eye goes to new pictures that resonate with how I am feeling now rather than one year ago. It does happen. You can come out into the light and live Happily 🙂

So this is my other website: https://deepanilamani.com/home/
