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 🙂

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 !

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 😛

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!

Chakra 9a

Hello To My Dear Readers 🙂

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 🙂

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. As you see, Dr Deepak Chopra is a highly educated person and we need to learn from such people. 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”!

Chakra 4
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 🙂 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 🙂

Chakra 2a
Thank you very much for reading. I hope you have found some useful tips from what I have written. Please share and pass it on for others benefit too ❤

This is my other site that I write little poems as relaxation for those of you, if you like to have a look. https://deepanilamani.com/2018/03/14/the-lion-and-the-little-girl/

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Although my story was going to come out at a later date with other news, how things are happening in my life right now, “I have received guidance to write it now and here”!
I have come a long way from being ill, and why I started this blog with many supporting me, is to help others with what I have learnt along the way. Although we rely on medication and the doctors, a very big part is in our hands, as the doctors do not live with us, they have their own life too! They see us only for a short time, and it is we who know what is going on with us in daily life, and what will work best for us. The whole world knows, how serious mental issues are, the sad part is not only those who are ignorant but there are people who, “Knowingly hurt and disturb those who are gone or going through issues” After going through such an ordeal I have raised my head up, being kind and helpful to so many, now “I have to face a destructive, negative being who is trying to use everything possible to disturb and upset me”!

Weapon 2

I do not know how many of you face this kind of situation? To come across those who have no feelings and, “Take joy in destroying and upsetting others”? There are many reasons for people to become mentally ill. This is through long term stress and trauma, also injustice and all kinds of abuse as well as disasters from mother nature. There are those who give their hand when people fall, unfortunately there are some who try to push you down further, as what I have been facing for some time!

Weapon 3

In the world there are all sorts of people. The kind and soft, the wicked and harsh. The fact is wickedness is a result of an evil mind, which produces evil thoughts and words. Thoughts are energy and evil thoughts produce a very strong negative force that begins to act against the normal way the body works. The body begins to make toxins, instead of good chemicals. “A toxin is a poisonous substance produced within living cells or organisms. It simply means, “It is a biologically produced poison” This poison begins to eat up the body from the inside and until it comes out as diseases that cannot be detected, and then it is too late. It is like the, “Termites, eating away – destroying another will destroy oneself” Even when it is happening sadly some cannot stop their wickedness!

Weapon 5
Healing is, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual all together. How I have healed is giving attention to all of these. And now well on the way on my spiritual path, and I have advanced myself on it. In order to achieve the higher knowledge you need to free up your mind. The material world is full of greed and unrest. You cannot balance your chakra’s and develop the third eye if you hang on to things. What ever I have not been given, held back I have let gone, and actually they are nothing once you gain the higher knowledge, as once you achieve it, you receive things that money cannot buy. It is true that we need money, but money is only needed to pay for the essentials. There are many things that money cannot buy, like Health, and illnesses money cannot cure. “The biggest Wealth is Health” And I have achieved that health. “I have been pushed right to the bottom through *Wickedness*, and I have Bounced back – Through meditation and prayers. I am able to, “Receive energy from The Universe and no one can take it away as it is a, “Gift from God”. I have gained it through, “Sheer hard work, Dedication and Sacrifice”. I am No more a Survivor but “I Have Survived and ready to Guide others with Blessings from Almighty God, The Higher Powers, The Universe” ❤

A 151a
If ever you come across situations like this, having to face selfish and cruel people, who ill treat you and try to disturb your life, know that, there is always help from above. It is said that, “When all else fail people turn to religion” This is true as when there is nothing else to do, we sit and pray and ask for divine intervention. And know that you will get it. Justice will always come. You must NEVER LOSE HOPE. As long as you are in the right, you will get help in the way of strength and guidance in knowing how to go about your life. Always have Hope and Faith also Patience until life turns in your favour. It will ❤

Today I was especially guided for some reason, as I did not intend writing this article, and I am Grateful to Almighty God, The Higher Powers and The Universe for the guidance. I am Blessed ❤

Thank you for reading, and take inspiration and also I hope you learnt something new. You may share or pass it on with those who can make use of what I have written ❤

Hello To My Dear Readers 🙂

This is about what happens when we come to an end of one chapter of our journey of becoming well. When we come to a certain ending of our healing, we get the need to clear up and wrap up any unfinished tasks. These can be when others have taken our responsibilities or duties, when we have not been well enough to do ourselves. No one exactly need to tell us, but this is a sign that one has come back to normal state of mind, and it automatically sets in!
It is also about clearing any misunderstanding of us been avoiding or keeping away, from some people or places. It can also be that during the times of confusion, we may have acted or reacted which may have hurt or offended some. This happens mainly with those who have issues with mood disorder. Very often these are not serious offenses, but it is mainly when we have been unwell, and have not been active in mixing up with people we need to clear up certain issues before getting back in to life again 🙂
In short we are taking control of our lives again to carry on with what we need to do, in our own time and in our own ways. This is very important as it is only when we are able to lead our lives independently, that our minds become active and we get energised and our brains begin to function properly that in turn helps the process of healing to improve even more. When you begin to feel better, try and start doing the little things and then you are able to move on to the bigger tasks gradually. As at some time we all need to get back on to living the normal life and the quicker we get into it the better 🙂

Hello To My Dear Readers 🙂

I have written this article before but it was at the very beginning and I believe not many read it. Also now that I have more knowledge I thought of writing it again with new and added information. It is mainly about how you go about finding the correct doctor, counsellor or therapist when you need to go for medical help 🙂
We all know that each one of us have different personalities, and so does the medical personnel. More than the other fields when we are dealing with our minds, it is very important to find the correct doctor with whom you can be comfortable and tell your story, discuss your problems, ask advice or guidance. As you need to feel you are trusted and respected, or the moment you feel uncomfortable even with one word, your mood can go off and it becomes a problem rather than a help. I have experiences on this. There has been times that I have gone quite happy and confident and coming back with a very dimmed spirit and annoyed and hurt having the feeling that I was not understood or trusted. So anytime you are over stressed or imbalanced, try and find the correct doctor and visit them regularly, until the doctors or the therapist decide to stop seeing you. Counselling is very very important and extremely helpful in seeing and solving your problems in a satisfactory way 🙂

Then comes the other Most Important part that, “You need to take your medication regularly and continue as long as you have to or for ever” Please make a note that this is very important as I too have stopped at times thinking I am well and have got relapses when I did so. When one goes through severe stress and trauma long term there will be an imbalance of chemicals in the body. And the medications are given to balance them out. Why I am saying this ? As when it was explained like that only I realized that, I really needed to take what ever I was supposed to take, in order to become well and continue to be well. So you need to know and believe that you can lead a normal life by learning to deal with it the correct way 🙂

Coming out of depression or being well from mood disorder means that it is being managed/controlled with medication and everything else you are doing to keep up being well and, they have gone into remission or you can call it hibernation. Its like a seed in the ground waiting for the rains or the right conditions to lift its head up again. This does happen with many other illnesses as well. So medication is necessary to keep it under control or for prevention. But medication alone cannot do everything. A major part of it is in your hands too. You need to eat healthy and be active and maintain your body and be physically fit, as the body and mind is connected, for the mind to be strong the body has to be healthy too. You need to steer the mind on to the positive path and push aside the negativity as much as possible. For this you need to work at it. I will write about being positive in the next article, as I know some do not like or its too stressful to read very long posts. Hope this has given you some good insights that will help you in feeling better in some way 🙂
