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™‚

ZZZ 16aa
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!

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˜€

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˜€

Things We Love to Do!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❀

I have been talking about the things we really like to do, and I came across these really wonderful picture quotes that I thought of posting them for your knowledge and enjoyment. The last few articles have been rather serious, as the subject of mental health is quite a heavy subject. So for a break I felt like writing something more light hearted and relaxing, as life is not only to live well but, to enjoy, have fun and be happy too. To be able to be really happy, is to be able to, “Do what You really Like” πŸ™‚

ZZZ 5a
There are lot of things we can do in life. There is a saying, “Just to eat, drink and pay the bills is not a way to live”. And of course all of us are doing many things to keep ourselves occupied, to keep us going. Being on the blogs itself is proof that we are out and about in learning new things and moving on in life without stagnating ❀

ZZZ 8a
There are many things we can do to Relax and be Happy, but it depends on what each of us like and want to do, according to our own personality ❀

ZZZ 16a

We all have our own talents, gifts that we can make use of, to keep us active, happy and also to earn our living πŸ™‚

ZZZ 7

I enjoy doing a lot of activities, both indoor and outdoor. Sometimes a little too much for my age but I like to keep myself active. Today too even though it is winter and cold, I braved the weather and did my front garden. I also enjoy cooking, housework as I love to keep a neat house, reading and music my favourite topics, chakra dancing for therapy and exercises, Mandala art for relaxing the mind and well…. the list goes on πŸ˜›

ZZZ 17a

What are the things you Love to do? Think. Are you doing them? At least some of them or even one? Sometimes we forget or don’t pay attention, to do the things we like to do. As I said it need not be a Hobby as such, but anything that Relaxes you, make you Happy and Calm. Doing what we like need not be big things that takes up a lot of money, but even small things, to distract us from unnecessary issues and keep us going. As it is, our life and others can help us but, only we can choose what we like to do to make us Happy, that will lead to our goals and have a Happy ending πŸ™‚

Chakra 2

Hope all of you are finding what I write useful and the two articles on End The Stigma!was an eye opener. IΒ am continuing the Chakra Healing!Β This is after the 1stΒ Chakra Healing ~ Muladhara!Β The 2nd Chakra, which is called Svadisthana or the Sacral Chakra!

Chakra 2a

The Sacral Chakra is the 2nd energy centre. This is located below the naval and above the pubic bone. The reason it’s said, that it is the sexual centre is because, below the naval is where the reproductive organs are, and then the large intestine and the bladder also to do with this Chakra!
The colour that influence this Chakra is Orange so, Orange fruits like, Papaya, Mangoes, Oranges, Peaches and vegetables like Carrots, Pumpkins and Sweet Potatoes support this Chakra. The Element is water so, healing happens best around places to do with water like, the sea, lakes or rivers. It can be walking, sitting or just relaxing in water or swimming, but it all depends whether you are stressed and need to relax and slow down, or move fast and energize. So you need to know, what your issue is and what to do exactly to balance this Chakra. I have found this picture quote from the I net, Pinterest to see clearly, what I am saying about and even more information πŸ™‚

Chakra 12
The Sacral Chakra is very much to do with Creativity, and there are many activities you can do to balance this Chakra. Art, painting and drawing brings a sense of calmness and relaxation, and also singing and dancing are excellent activities to bring this Chakra to be balanced. I will be writing separate articles, of the values of other activities as well as, music, singing and dancing later on πŸ™‚

The Power of Prayers!

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

I have been thinking of writing this article for quite sometime, but somehow I never got to write until now. Its almost going to be a year since I started this blog and although there are many who follow this from Face Book there has been hardly any other bloggers connecting with me. One thing is I have not been connecting with other blogs myself, as well as when anything is new it takes time to grow !!!
So I have been really wanting to move further and feeling rather stuck not being able to progress to my satisfaction. Sometimes in life however much you try, things don’t happen exactly at the times you want. And its not always that we find people who can understand or advice how and when we want to. At these times, I turn to prayers or meditation πŸ™‚

Pray 2
Prayers and meditation are part of my life and I have now come to a stage that its like a need, almost like being in need of food. Whatever the time I listen my energy goes up, almost like charging a battery and I know when its enough too. As if over do it, I start to get an uncomfortable feeling, just like what you get when you are eating too much and I stop immediately !!!
I have finished my family duties and having stopped work, I have now dedicated myself fully to work towards the wellness and the welfare of mankind. So service is the Purpose of My Life now. I have always wanted to do service. But never thought this was how, as then there was no Inter net or never knew about mental illness !!!
See how life turns out to be. But I am extremely happy that this is what I am able to do. Giving out knowledge for free is the best thing one can ever do πŸ™‚

I have been praying for some time for more opportunities to spread out, and suddenly new doors open for you. I am unable to exactly say how, but for me as I keep on praying, suddenly things move, happen, at the most unexpected ways and in times. New chances come in. I have to mention the fact that, it has to be taken as however each person believes. It can be taken as God, The Higher Powers or The Laws of the Universe. As we all know, we are all under one set of rules. Only according to each person’s faith, the names and the faces are different πŸ™‚

Door 5a

I am a firm believer in the Strength and of the Healing Vibrations and Energy that comes through praying. As my healing from depression is greatly influenced by them. All prayers are with chosen good words, that give out good vibrations that gives good and healing energy. Its through extreme stress that most illnesses come in. Negative energy causes to deteriorate good health !!!

Pray 9a
So I know now how to listen to peaceful vibrations that helps to calm me down or boost my mood with prayers that has strong vibrations. This can be achieved with good classical music too. As music is one of the best ways of relaxation to get over stress and calm you down, and with strong beat to lift your mood. The difference with prayers is that, they are beyond relaxation. As with Faith they give me guidance when I need and, strength during difficult times. It’s almost like holding on to some unseen source, or the mast of a ship in troubled seas. But we cannot just be praying and sitting around. While praying we need to do our part too. Have Faith and work hard towards what we want in life too πŸ™‚

Pray 4a

We all know that even during times of crisis of others, people all over the world come together and pray for those affected. For sicknesses, for those who died and got wounded, and for peace. Recently I was challenged on health matters as then, I was asked, why should there be doctors if we can heal ourselves by praying. As I said we do not sit at home and wait for cures, we need to go for medical help too when its needed. Prayers are an additional boost as well as they help to keep you going. As we need to have Hope for anything in life. Faith in prayers is something that gives us that Hope. And not only for others, but something happens inside of us too. Also we hear ever so often of many illnesses being healed with the powers of prayers. I too have had this experience for someone in the family and myself and I believe in this situation it was a test of my faith. As I stood strong and held on to my faith and to the beliefs in all what I am doing πŸ™‚

A 64
I believe most people do some kind of praying from what ever religion they belong to. I am not going to tell anyone to do anything, but If any one of you do not, or not done so far you can try at times you feel you need some extra energy or strength, or meditating to calm yourself. Regarding myself, I have been taught from small days and been exposed to many religious activities according to our culture. As human beings none of are perfect and during our journey of growing up and then even up to our last breath, religion and prayers offer us, guidance, strength and above all peace at heart. The ultimate goal in our lives isn’t it πŸ™‚

Pray 3a

I hope you have got some insight of the values and the powers of prayers and meditation for us as human beings. So far if any of you have not known I believe you have got some understanding ? Some belief Β ? What ever it is, this is how I think and do, and they have helped me immensely on my journey of healing and guided me and still being guided on the path I am going on πŸ™‚
