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 🙂

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 ❤

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 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 🙂

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 🙂

Hope all of you are well. I have not been here for a while, as I have been busy writing some other articles. So I am sorry I have not been visiting some of your blogs too. I am re-writing this article as so many have missed the old articles. We are all aware in life everyday is not the same. We keep on changing and moving ahead. Even if we do not want to change, we do grow older by the day and changes happen physically and mentally, as well as the whole environment changes around us. That is the norm of life. With that there comes challenges over and over again for us to learn how to face and overcome them, to become stronger and wiser to move on in life to the next level 🙂

Challenge 3

Once you have overcome a challenge or challenges, you need to learn from them and organize yourself, to make sure the same things do not cause problems again. For this you need to, “Let Go” of the things and people that do not work for you anymore. Letting go usually, does not mean taking a bag and going away as so many posts show. As in life you cannot leave those who are dependent on you and walk off just like that. What it means mostly is, “Letting go from the Mind” and changing and adjusting to those people and situations that you have to live in, to fit in better 🙂

Life 1

Letting Go is a process. As in life from the moment we are born we are Letting Go isn’t it? First of all we let go of the womb that we grew for 9 months and entered the, seems like harsh world with a bang. From that time on wards, everything that we were born with, our hair, skin keeps on shedding and being renewed without our knowledge. Letting go is a, “Natural Process for us to, “Let Go” of the unwanted/old and move on to new that works for us” Its just like discarding our clothes that become too small for us as we grow on to our next size. Not only us it happens to animals too. Like reptiles, they too shed their whole length of outer skin from time to time. The eagle sheds all its feathers and even the beak after 40 years to renews it self for another 30 years. Then why is this, Letting Go become such a painful process ?

Let Go 1

This is when, “We are Forced to Let Go”, “Before we are ready” Just like pulling our hair or teeth before time. In Nature, there is always, a Time for everything. When we have to, or Forced to give up anything or people before we are ready only, it becomes painful” So there is always a, “Time to Let Go” if not it is difficult and painful. But sometimes so happens in life, whether we like or not we do have to let go as we need to move on and holding on doesn’t help. And once you accept life becomes much easier and pleasant. As you have less people and things to trouble you unnecessarily!!!

Let Go 2

 

Then how to make life a little easier for us, living in this complicated world? Well the most important word that comes in is, “To be prepared to Let Go” When we know our work is done and we are no more needed. Hard? Yes 🙂 But it is the reality. When people have out grown you means they have changed their vibrations, hence some of their personality and their energies. So they no longer able to fit in with the same people and live under the same roof, doing the same things. All that belongs to another era, which is called by the name, “The Past” Letting Go even if it is for the good for us is very difficult, but sometimes we have to, and once we do the relief is great. By letting go if the past you make room for the new to come in, that will ultimately lead you to new places and people whom you fit in better and belong with, to lead much satisfied and happier and fulfilled life 🙂

let-go-3
Hope you enjoyed reading what I have written, and learnt something to help in your life or even someone else’s life. Knowledge is like ripples that travels over and across lands and seas all over the world bringing everyone closer to share and learn from each other. It is for us to learn how change and letting go helps us to move on to a better level in life. Enjoy 🙂

Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies coming Your way ❤

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 🙂
While physical 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 🙂

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 🙂

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 ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

Hope you all are keeping well. I have taken a while to come here, as I am going through some major changes in my life and needed to settle my mind before writing. We are changing everyday, but from time to time we do go through major changes from one phase to another. These can be work, relationships, children, money or anything at all, but usually they go together with one’s age 🙂
From children we become adults and with that, jobs, marriage and our children come in. I feel that this middle chapter takes almost half of our life span. Although there are many major changes within this period as children mature, its only when they finally leave home, comes the next major change. Parents feel their absence and a long line of things they did suddenly comes to an end and they are left with a big hole or a gap that needs to be filled, in their hearts as well as in their lives. This is called as the empty nest syndrome and is mostly felt by the mother as usually its the mother who is around them while father’s are more at work. But then it can be for the father too or for both the parents, depending on who is more closer to the children when they are growing up. At the same time usually the parents are also close to their age of retirement from their jobs which makes it even harder to digest !!!
For me I have now passed this middle chapter and was mostly concentrating on my work.  And now that too seems to have come to an end which is another huge life change. I find that in life we cannot, master two completely different topics well, at the same time. Once I began to heal and started to get back into my normal life, my mind was full of ideas on healing. For me, being involved in teaching English, and Healing became two completely different things. I found my mind was constantly pulling on to what was going on my life at the time, which was all about health and healing. I had made a huge effort to come out of depression and naturally my mind was full of all that and my whole life took on to another path !!!
Although there was a detour, I still continued working as a part time English tutor, but I did not find enough satisfaction as its not all who value when someone is trying to teach them free. They do not understand how much of time, energy and sacrifice that is put in for volunteering. When engaged in the process of giving, “in any life situation not only in work, be it outsiders, friends or family one needs to feel appreciated in some form. As in life its, “Both giving and receiving. Its then only the real giving process is complete” ❤
I faced a situation where I felt rejected. Rejection is a very strong word, which has a very negative effect. It can come in many forms. It can be in the way of comparing with others, belittling you, putting you down, avoiding, in short its a total lack of caring and disrespect towards another. This makes the rejected person feel let down, unwanted, insulted and it gives a feeling that you have failed as a person or/and in what ever you have been entrusted with. It loses one’s confidence and a sense of worth and its not easy to overcome them just like that. It can take a toll on ones mind and you can become depressed and ultimately mentally ill. Actually these are exactly the situations that pushes normal people to become not normal and having to struggle to become normal again. Then there are very few to acknowledge or to give a hand to pull you up. I know this and exactly why I am writing and doing this blog ❤
Rejection is one of the worst things that can happen to someone who is depressed or even come out of depression. Yes I am out of it, but as we all know many illnesses, be it physical or mental can lift their heads up given the right conditions. They go into remission and are like seeds waiting for the rains to come out from their hiding places. Its not easy for people like us, as we can’t be running to the counsellor or the therapist all the time like little children to the mother 😛
But its when suddenly things hit you hard, and usually its not one there can be a few of the stones falling on your head at the same time, that we find it difficult to cope. Then what do we do ? I had been wanting this change from work, But I didn’t stop I was just going on. Very often in life, although we know its time we made that change, we don’t usually make major changes all by ourselves. This is the time when, God/The Universe/The Higher Powers decide to step in. We get a push. How ? Being hurt, disappointed or being rejected. And if we don’t take it we get a bigger push until it hits us hard and we are almost forced to take that decision. This is why it’s said that, we are given the same lesson over and over again if we don’t listen or make those changes we need in order to move on in life !!!
So when things get shaken up, if you take them up as challenges, you can really benefit from them. As you then, stop what ever you are doing and have a very good look at what’s going on with your life at that moment, and think is this what I want ? What is life telling me ? Stress and pain acknowledged with wisdom, helps you to find that exact venture, the path that you are really supposed to follow ❤

A 11

When things don’t really work for you and you keep on getting pushed, you feel, “This has gone on long enough, I do not want to cry or keep on going through this pain. I need to live better, “Then that will be the exact time of your turning point, of making that decision to make that change. As that will be heard by your mind and, “Unknown to you, the mind will be working towards it” It will be letting go of the unwanted and streamlining your life to serve you better. For this you need to prioritise. To clean your life from the clutter and to know exactly what you want from life 🙂

A 22

In my case I have been isolating myself completely. All phones off and no sound no nothing just eating, sleeping and relaxing in silence. Its then that your mind becomes clear and you find out/realise, “What you really want from life. What will make you happy. How you can achieve it” We cannot depend on others, as most of them don’t understand, or they are not there when we need them. That is exactly how it is too. Because it’s not other’s job to think or decide for us. Its our life and its we who know what we want. And if sometimes you find there is no one to ask, “This is because its you alone that has to find your own answers. As its only you that know who you are exactly and what You want from life. And then you need to be strong and brave enough to take that step and start all over again 🙂

Hello My Dear Readers, here I am again 🙂

I have been wanting to write here, but some unforeseen issues developed and I was thrown off track. Life is such that you don’t know what suddenly lands on you. If its something good then its fantastic. But if its not so then its trouble especially for those who are very sensitive and are having mental issues. So this is why its important to continue your medication as long as you have to. So I thought I will enlighten some of you on this topic, and yet again this is how I will want to read, as when you are stressed you don’t and cant read too much of information. I have been pushed back into remembering certain things, that wont go away. This is the problem with mental illness. As until you get disturbed or shaken up, you don’t know what is hiding in your mind. Its just not always what people do, but mother nature also play havoc at times and they become traumatic events that leaves you highly stressed. Losing your possessions, loved ones or to have to face fear, sadness or pain !!!
Post-traumatic disorder happens, when something triggers you. “Trigger is anything that sets you off emotionally and activates your memories of your trauma. They are specific to each person how and what they have gone through” And you begin to re-experience these events that you have seen or experienced before. Each person goes through different experiences and each persons ability to deal with them differs according to their personality, their strengths.

AAAA 18

I am not having nightmares. But certain memories which had been buried has come out again and they are tyring to push past my current state of mind. I am stable and doing everything quite well. But I am unable to concentrate on my studies, which is very annoying as I have been doing so with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. I have been battling with it from about four months, and was getting over when I was shaken again. But everything happens for a good reason, as I have not gone to the psychiatrist for almost one and a half years, I have thought of getting some counselling again. As each time you get shaken up you find out things about yourself and you need to make changes in order they do not happen again 🙂

Heal 22

 

Outside forces, people can disturb us. But then its only ourselves who have to battle it out and come out. So we need to set boundaries, in order to safeguard ourselves. Its not easy to come out of it once it sets in. With my own experiences I am saying that you need to go to a psychologist or a psychiatrist for help. And also keep up with your current medication if you are taking any. And look after your health, and try to keep to your normal routine as much as possible 🙂

AAAA 17

 

Actually although I wanted to come and write here, I was having nausea and drowsiness as well. But thankfully they are getting less. Still I have not gone to the psychiatrist. So I will be updating all of you. And it will be interesting to follow my progress. And I will have to make a genuine effort as I have to write positive things here, about my becoming well isn’t it 🙂

A 57
This post will make you remember all about PTSD. As its difficult to silence the mind once its disturbed and the thoughts that keep on coming, restricts the body or us going about the usual ways and doing things in life. This is why anyone has to be very careful with their words and even dealing with others. As we don’t know what another person is going through although they are smiling from outside !!!

Heal 20a

 

Thank you for reading. Follow my journey. In a way it will be very beneficial to all those who make use of what I write, as you are observing first hand what is going on with me and how I am managing and over coming. And I will 🙂

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