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 ❀

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 πŸ™‚

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 ❀

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 hilarious part is, this is to do with some people in my family, that my eye went to this quote. These people have, “No 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 , “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 πŸ™‚

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!

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™‚

with shoes in hand on the field

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 ❀

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 diving 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 ❀

A year is ending and each ending is another new beginning. I hope those of you who celebrated Christmas did so, and had a good time together with family and friends, and also with less fortunate. Just like me almost all of you have gone through many tests and trials throughout this year and learnt many lessons from them. As we know all tests are challenges for us to overcome, become stronger and go to that next level in life. I believe almost all of you know that diamonds are the result of charcoal which has gone under severe pressure. So how many of you have become diamonds now? Even halfway πŸ˜›

Courage 1a

When difficulties and stress come into our lives, and we go through storms and face challenges we are not happy. At that time we don’t think this is for the good of us, but they for our learning. If life just flows by, generally we do not attempt to go that extra mile/make that extra effort to polish ourselves and become a gem πŸ™‚

Courage 6a
There so many who have gone through extreme conditions and ended up tops in their fields or even finding new strengths to do things they have never dreamt of doing or achieving. For an example below is: Apolo Anton Ohno – an American short track speed skating competitor and an eight-time medalist in the Winter Olympics – Thanking Wikipedia ❀

Courage 2

There is something that all of you need to know, that tests and tribulations are not permanent nor do they come non stop until you die. Sure changes take place until our very last moment and that is how life is. The environment is changing and we also growing and changing with it. But once you learn what tests are and accepts them as part of life the process changes πŸ™‚

Courage 7

There comes a time when we realize that these tests come as messages, then this is “the time the messengers lose their importance in our lives” Why? We then come to understand how life works, and that these people have come into our lives as messengers only. The moment we see these people as messengers, that personal connection breaks off, we let go of the messengers and, “only accept the message. “They become nothing but messengers and once the message has been given automatically they move away or we do”. No one has to do anything, but it is a process in life. There is a shift of energy and the tie is broken off. So we don’t look to them as specific people but messengers that life has sent, andΒ  they don’t really bother as, “He or she said or did like this”!

Messenger 1

Life is mysterious, fascinating, complex, as well as simple. We need to face life as how it comes in a wise way, or else life becomes very complicated and there can be no way out. For this we need to develop the sixth sense, wisdom which is the third eye ultimately when wisdom develops to its full strength. The third eye is not a physical eye, but it is something that makes you to be able to feel, “see from your mind beyond what the normal eye or other senses are able to detect”. In short one becomes very sharp in sensing the surroundings and of those around you. They are better able to know and decide what is good and what works best for them in life. They don’t go with a halo round their heads, but they go about life doing what they have to in their own quiet way!

Courage 3a

I found this wonderful quote from the I net, which says it all. Sure I also have learnt along the way, and as normal human beings we do get upset and hurt although we are aware how life works. But as time goes by and you become mature adults, becoming wise you tend to look at life in a much broader way. Saying that, “It is not all mature people who are wise and it is not all young people who are foolish – there are foolish adults as well as very wise young people too” But one thing is sure, as after we have gone through all the tests and tribulations learning our lessons in the correct way, all the hard work pays as always in anything and everything we do. What ever you have gone through in life, if you have faced them bravely and done the right thing, the results would be immeasurable. You would have grown so much and achieved so much that the end result will be like the, “Rainbow after the rains and the pot of gold at the end of it” πŸ™‚

Courage 8a
As always hope you learnt something from this article. Please share and pass on to others who can make use of that is written. Thank you for reading ❀

Hello To My Dear Readers πŸ™‚

Many of you must be busy getting ready for Christmas, for those who are celebrating, I wish you all, “A Very Merry Christmas” Remember it is not all about celebrating, but to honour Lord Jesus Christ’s birth, we need to remember his teachings of love and peace and also give and share with those who are less fortunate and in need. “In giving you shall receive” And you will be blessed too in turn ❀
From time to time in life we face so many challenges. Sometimes we are pushed and pulled in all directions as if we are consumed by fire. Although these quotes say of women, it is relevant to men too. So don’t think it is only meant for ladies. With my experiences and with so many sayings, when it comes to mental strength somehow it seems women are more resilient. I believe this is something to do with mostly having to be mothers, as mother’s need to be strong and even fierce to protect their children. But in every situation there are exceptions, some are strong and some are not!

A 141
Generally in life, we ourselves are not aware how strong we are until we have to act upon some difficult situation. There are so many men and women that stay quiet in daily life, but having to face an extreme situation can raise themselves like lions. I know this as I have this experience. It is for survival as we are born to survive. That is why we are given so many tools in our human body to survive adverse situations, as well as being able to read, get advice and learn to cope with life. At any time, “Never give up” you need to have faith and keep moving on with zest and zeal. You are born to survive and you have all what you need inside of you to face challenges and bounce back in style πŸ™‚

Its a short one unlike others, but when I get that urge I somehow have to put down in writing. May be someone is in need of this advice right now. Thank you for reading. Pass it on or share for those who can make use of it ❀
