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” πŸ™‚
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 πŸ™‚

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!

Collage 2a
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 πŸ˜› 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€

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” πŸ˜€

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 ❀

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 ❀

End The Stigma!

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 ❀
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” ❀
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™‚

 

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?
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?
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™‚
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!

Chakra Healing!

Chakra 9a

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Hope all of you are keeping well and happy. Thank you for encouraging me by reading, commenting and following my blog. Today I am going to write about the chakras that are within us. What are chakras?

Chakra 8a

I know most of you who are writing blogs and also those who are highly advanced in their wisdom are all aware that, we are all made of, “Energy” Our life force energy is called, “Prana” in Sanskrit, “chi” in China and “ki” in Japan. There are 7 chakras whch respond to 7 different colours, along the spinal cord. The 6th one on our forehead which is the third eye, and ***The 7th one on top of our head which is the, “crown chakra” which connects to the higher energy, and also energy gets released out from the crown chakra on top of our heads*** They respond to different energy vibrations. It is when they get blocked that we become ill. How do they get blocked?

Chakra 1
You can see how the chakras deal with what we think, say and do. As what we say and do is according to how we think from our minds. So in the present times it is understood that the root cause of most illnesses are psychosomatic – both body and mind – where the mind influences the body to create or exacerbate!

Chakra 5a
You can see from the above post how each chakra has the influence over certain glands in the body. They each respond to different colour and also their own energy vibration. This is how the blocked chakras are healed, by sound, colour therapy and many other ways, which I will be writing in details in the coming articles, as to describe all 7 in one article is not possible πŸ™‚

Chakra 7
The chakras are also connected spiritually as they are energy. This is why we need to know about religion – to know how life works. Life is a very serious thing and not to be played with, we need to learn from those who are having higher knowledge and experience more than us. We cannot play with our lives or other’s lives as, “We are all governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness which are according to, “The Laws of The Universe” No one can escape these laws as, “We are all in the Universe. There is no place to run and hide! We are all responsible for our lives as well as to the well being of, “The whole wide world”!
I have been in the process of clearing my chakras in the past, and even more intensively in the past few weeks through prayers and meditation with the hope of – coming on to a very special event πŸ™‚ which will be revealed soon I hope as it has been a very long journey to polish up my wisdom. Praying, along with many others ways of therapeutic ways has helped me to become well and to be able to write to you all, “To give Hope and to feel you too can come up to be same as me” Why not? All human beings can achieve so much by hard work, dedication and sacrifice. So today I am able to share my knowledge and experiences to give Hope, and have the joy and satisfaction that I am contributing in my own small way to the well being of others in the society and the world πŸ™‚

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 All My Dear Readers ❀

Today I am writing about what each of us are born to do, or why each of us are born for. We all know that we are all born for some specific purpose. As each one of us are different from each other, and have a unique personality of our own, our purpose is completely different to each other too. There maybe similarities, but never exactly the same. For example see how many of us write blogs here, we writers are all sorts. Each of us have our own style of writing and our own topics. Same with other things too. So how do we find or know what our purpose is? Some are born with a gift a talent. But others?

Cover 12

Everyone has something that they really like to do, that excites them even thinking about it. Those who love to read cannot put down a book until they have finished. Those who love to write keep on writing, and they get lost in what they do and even loose track of time. Scientists, inventors, artists and other various people work into the wee hours into the morning, or even through out the night days on end, tirelessly as they enjoy what they are doing. So all of us have what is called the passion, which leads us on our own path into our destiny πŸ™‚

A 144
So when we follow our passion, how do we know it is the right or the wrong path. As I wrote before, passion is what keeps us moving ahead no matter what. There will be obstacles, there may be others who will not understand or/and even criticize what you are doing. But they wont understand what you like to do as it is what only you like to do. No two people do the same thing the same way!

A 146

When we are going ahead in the journey of our life, we will meet other travelers along the way. As in life we all are moving ahead doing what we like along our own paths. From time to time people will cross our paths, from some we will learn lessons while others will learn from us. Some will walk for a long way with us while others will part sooner. However it is, we end up walking alone in our path, as it is our path and ours alone πŸ™‚

A 62
We all start walking along our path following our passion towards achieving our goals. As we go along there will be many changes along the way, as that is how life is. There will be detours, even additions to what we already want to do, and sometimes it might end up in a way, a place that we never ever dreamt of. This is the beauty of life, as life is a fascinating mystery. But to achieve all that, “We need to be brave and strong” to face all weathers along the way, as all good things require hard work, dedication and sacrifice. Although we never thought of ending up in a castle, it might be that, ultimately we have been directed to a magical place we never had thought of. Believe me it does happen πŸ™‚

 

A 143
So in life, we need to put in hard work. Experience good things as well as bad things. Pain and suffering too, as it is through pain that we let go of the unwanted, to make room for the new things and people in the next level. The challenges we face make us strong and resilient to do more and better things, for ourselves and others in the world. As in the end it is not just for us, we need to make the world a better place as, “We are all one big family in The Universe” Why? Because we are all energy and part of The Universe!

Thank you for reading. Hope you learnt something and enjoyed reading this. Please share and pass on to others for their benefit too ❀
