Gratitude ~ In Healing !

Gratitude 3a

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

The topic Gratitude is quite a long overdue topic that I meant to write, but somehow the time never came, and going through some of the articles on other blogs, I thought now is the correct time to write about it πŸ™‚
Learning about Gratitude go far back as 2005 from Sri-Lanka. I am a avid reader and as usual when I was looking for books, I came across this book called, “Taking Care of Me” in the self-help section. It was at the time of my depression, and it was a habit to find books to help myself in whatever I could. There was an e mail address by the author in this book and I happen to send her an e mail, that started a process of being coached free through e mails then, as well as a long standing friendship up to now. So below is the book and this article is in, Gratitude to my coach and friend, “The Gratitude Guru M.K.Mueller πŸ™‚

Book 1

There is much to the meaning of Gratitude. How I was trained was to, write 5 Gratitudes daily and, gradually I was looking for new things that I am Grateful to write, and without my knowledge my mind was slowly changing to a positive way of thinking. So that was a very big step, in lifting myself from depression. You can start by whatever things you are Grateful for but it has to be new ones everyday. Below is something of an example ❀

Gratitude 5a

Writing or journaling is the best way to put your mind into order. “Journaling for Mental Health. … Now it’s called journaling. It’s simply 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 !!!

Gratitude 6a

Writing Gratitudes completely changes your attitude towards how you look and see things in life. There is much to explain and I will be covering them in articles following this. For those of you who are keen there is another book also called, “8 To Great” which MK Mueller has made me a trainer of it. In your case, you can either write on your own at home, or do it among family members or even through e mails with friends. That makes you to do it everyday. This is MK and the other book which is also a very good book that has helped me a lot ❀

Book 4
This is not advertising but this is in thankfulness and to show that help comes from completely unknown and surprising ways too. The coaching and training I was given has gone a long way in helping me overcome depression. And what I am writing here also is what I have learnt through that. It is after 12 years that I am writing in Gratitude to her ! In 2005 when I was down did I think that today I will be writing on my blog of my recovery ? Life can change the next day. You too can lift yourself up but, you have to work and be persistent. You need to be strong, take courage and have patience. Life can change for the better and you can come out into the Light πŸ™‚

Book 2

Hope you have enjoyed reading and learnt something new from what I have written. It is very late almost 3 am in the morning in Brisbane !!! There will be more coming about Gratitude. Until then Good Night and God Bless from me ❀

Healing ~ Taking Full Responsibility !

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, counselors, 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” ❀

A 115

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Thank You for reading. You can share/pass it on for others who can benefit from what I have written ❀

What Is Healing ?

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

Hope all of you are well and moving on with, your lives along your paths in life. Today I am writing to explain what healing is as how I know. There are two kinds of healing ~ physical and mental healing. Physical healing is having a healthy diet, a healthful life style, with the correct kind of activities, plenty of rest and taking the additional nutrients and medication. We need to be physically healthy too for the mind to function well, but here I am writing about mental healing πŸ™‚
While physical HealingΒ healing can be seen when it is being fully healed, it is not so when it comes to mental issues. There is a broad meaning to mental healing and it can be taken in many different ways, by each and every person. Becoming well and healing completely is two different things. One can become well from depression or any other mental issue But, according to what I know and from my personal experiences that doesn’t mean, one is completely healed !!!

A 113

When we want to heal mentally we have to, “Take full responsibility for ourselves. It involves a great deal of discipline and letting go” We need to commit to work towards our own health and happiness by, releasing any types of behaviours, habits, people, activities, attitudes or emotions that are hindering/blocking our healing process !!!
Forgiveness of self and others play a very big part, (which I will write as a separate article later on) as well as expansion of consciousness and a understanding who we are, and knowing the purpose of our birth πŸ™‚

A 114

We are responsible for our thoughts. Its thoughts that becomes words, and actions follows. We ourselves being humans are able to control our thoughts. There are so many ways and means that we can do so. This is for our own good. The more we are in control of our thoughts the more we are in control of our lives. The day we succeed in controlling our thoughts, to a extent that we can be happy is the day we are able to heal to a good extent and to be able to live in Peace and Joyfulness πŸ™‚

Thank you all for reading. I will be writing on Healing, part by part as it cannot be covered by one or even a few articles. Hope it has helped you in some way, or share or pass it on for some others who can benefit ❀

Writer’s Block ?

Hello To All My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

As you all can see, I have taken a long time to write an article since the last one, End of A Very Long Journey !Β This is mainly because after that end, I still had not found any, New Beginnings !Β to write about. As always a beginning has to follow an end. Not knowing how to start writing again, I have looked in to this topic about, “The writer’s block” Well it seems to be that I fall under some of the views that is being said here !

block-3

There seems to be many different views by different people. Some do apply to me and maybe some of you also may come across these sometimes ? I found it an interesting topic and decided to write, as somehow I wanted to get back in to writing, and this is one of the advice I found, and hopefully this will help me to be posting articles here again πŸ˜›

block-4

I guess almost all of you are aware that when we write, we tap our inner wisdom and its almost like someone helping or dictating words to us. In my case I hear some words being prompted, and also almost like being whispered and I found that this was actually missing since recently. I found this quote to support what I am saying πŸ˜›

block-7

As I wrote at the beginning, nothing new has happened to me to write about. No one has asked any questions nor given any suggestions either. And as we all know sometimes how ever much we try, there is that specific time for anything to happen, and I have found that it applies for writing too πŸ™‚

block-2

According to the above quote it says, writing block doesn’t exist, but then being unable to write and being stuck I feel it is some sort of a block. From what I have read and know, we all need a break from our usual routine to relax and charge our batteries as well as find new and fresh ideas. So it is for writing as I have found in this quote which says what to do and what not to do !

block-1

I am more on to the way of a perfectionist and this also is a reason that sometimes I take my own time to do things, as what ever I do, I want it to be that perfect piece of work, so writing also comes under that. I wonder how many of you share this trait with me ?

block-8

Although it is mentioned as a block, somehow I have managed to write an article about, “The Writer’s Block” itself. Yes it does go quiet unable to think of what to write and then it has come back suddenly, my head filled up with this topic that pushed me to write again which is a great relief πŸ™‚

block-5

This is a time I have asked myself, “Why do I write” I started to write my story of becoming well and to share my experiences and knowledge for the benefit of others. At the same time writing/journaling is therapeutic to the mind. Writing is the only way, that you can pull out the feelings that are buried deep within your mind. It helps to declutter and reorganize yourself to begin a new chapter again. The quote below by, “Anne Frank” also says the same thing !

block-10

So when we write, it is our life, our own story that we write. It is known to us only and we write how and when we want to. Writing is being free, as we are all born free and being free is what makes us happy and joyful that leads us to find peace in our hearts, our ultimate goal in life πŸ™‚

block-6

Then do we always become successful and popular writers ? Β Or do we write because we like to write, to put forth our ideas that flood into out minds ?

block-9

So the answer is above, I am not sure if I should say we. But this applies to me, as I don’t earn anything from writing here, and sometimes there is hardly any response but yet I go on writing, because I like to write. I hope those of you read will give, some of your ideas or views on this ? I found this on the I net from another site. Don’t you think it is funny. It says stop the clock πŸ˜›

Write 1
I hope you all enjoyed reading this article and share the same views with me, or anything new you can contribute ? For more information on writing, you can also look up my other article of,Β All About Writing !

Thank you all for reading. You may share and/or pass it on for others who will like and benefit from what I have written ❀

And thanking for all the quotes and posts, I have shared from the I net ❀

P.S September 29th 2016: This is my latest update. As I have completely recovered and living free of depression, I needed a distraction, and to do something new and different. I have always liked poems and poetry, and I had this beautiful poem about the tree that I just started with that. But since then slowly I have begun to write my own little poems. Not only that, I was going beyond that and almost like catching up for lost time, the time I was down and was stagnating !!!
I was getting this strong need to express myself through creativity. My mind started to run into old interests and hobbies that I used to do. They have been growing in silence, and suddenly they have raised their heads up, pushing me to break through and open up myself to the world of color back again πŸ™‚

End of A Very Long Journey !

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

First of all let me wish All My Dear Readers A Very Happy New Year πŸ™‚

Thank you all for coming to my blog and liking and supporting me. When you read and appreciate, I feel what I write help in some way that I am encouraged to do more and better. Since I wrote my last article there has been questions as to how I managed to recover from depression, and what I did. So this includes answers to some of those questions and some may be what I have written before, but then as time goes they are with added knowledge and experiences!!!
I waited a little as the mind takes a very long time to clear out of all Trauma you went through, to be able to start to remember exactly what happened to you, that over stressed you and made you mentally ill. One can compare the mind to a muddy glass of water clearing up, as the mud particles settles down, the mind too start to clear to be settled enough to write your story ❀

face-4a
Until you really clear your mind, that is to say until you get over most of the pain, you sort of need to keep away from the places and people who upset you. This is not to say close the door and stay in the room or isolate yourself, but at this time if you have a lot of time for yourself to rest and think clearly without others disturbing your thought pattern you can get back in to your own way of doing things much quicker. Just like covering a physical wound, we need to safe guard our minds too from outside disturbances until it becomes well!!!

a-74

Why you need a good environment is, in the silence you hear yourself. You are able to really understand what works best for you to feel happy and relaxed !

A 70
You also need to let go of people and situations that keeps on digging at your heart and hurting and making you sad. I know we cannot just pack a bag and leave. What I mean is if you cannot move away physically, you need to start letting go/detaching yourself from all that mentally. When you detach yourself from the mind, automatically you are able to have less disturbance from those that hurt you ❀

a-98

I have been writing that in life, challenges come for us to face them get over them and become stronger and move on to the next level. The reason why we get hurt and upset is, “We take what happens extremely personally, thinking they happen only to us” But each person crosses our path for a reason. They all carry some message, good or bad. I know we being ordinary human beings, its difficult to face extreme harsh and cruel things that happens to our lives. But, a very big but, “somehow if we take them as messengers that crosses our path” we are better able to handle the situations in a much better way. There is no one in the world who has Not gone through any kind of pain or hardship. One thing I have to say is, many think that mental conditions happen through relationships only. But it can be anything. Major events that mother earth throws at us like, volcanoes, floods and earth quakes where people lose family, friends, houses and money, also failing exams, losing jobs all contribute to becoming very ill!!!

a-106

Once you realize this, everything begin to fall into place and you see a pattern that has been happening, and you begin to heal slowly but surely ❀

a-105

Once you begin to heal you don’t want to be wasting time talking about all the negative things that happened to you in the past. Its how it happened to me. I felt I had lost so much time and I started catching up. I did two short courses. The first one on, Personal Development from which I learnt so much about people’s behaviors and how to face them. The second one on, Natural Health and Healing that I expanded my knowledge about healing the natural way. Now on going, “A Diploma in Psychology which has opened my eyes in a very different light and discovering so much about the human mind. I have to say its the best thing that happened to me” So all of them boosted my inner growth and turned me around and brought back that confidence and strength in me. I can say I have bounced back stronger. We all have to keep on trying. If we try hard enough, “We all can make progress well enough to lead a good life” ❀

a-104

Once we take our lives in to our hands and do what makes us happy, then our soul comes alive again and then we have healed. Yes you need medical help. That you definitely have to have and medications what has to help you. But there is a very big part in your hands, as its you who is always with you and knows exactly what is happening. Everyone can help, But ultimately, Healing is in the hands of the person who is unwell ❀

a-107

It has been a very long journey, and finally I have healed myself from my mental pains. You need to educate yourself so as to become wise. The sixth sense, also called the third eye helps you to know how life works. Through all that you, Find the “Truth” The answers to why certain things happened to you and around you. But you don’t need to run after those who have hurt and harmed you. You have wasted enough time. You forgive not for the other person, but yourself, and move on with your life. “Punishment comes to those who do wrong, not once, But over and over again, knowing that they are doing the wrong thing” ***Human beings have no excuse as they have so much of education and guidance from the day they are born to help them lead good lives***Human life is so valuable and it’s a pity that some think its only they need to live well and to hurt and harm others. Still that is life, and we need to learn our lessons and move on. The beauty of it is, “As survivors we become, “Better and stronger people to give a helping hand to others to stand up”. There by our lives becomes Peaceful and Blessed. Things that money cannot buy πŸ˜›

a-103

I hope everyone who reads will at least find one answer to their questions, and learnt something new to help you. If you know of others who might benefit from what I have written, Please do share or pass it on. Thank you for reading ❀

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me ❀
