Hello to All My Dear Readers ❤
I started this blog in August 2015, mainly to write my journey on mental wellness “just in My Pen Name Deepa Nilamani” ~ But as I have been able to, “Receive Healing Energy ~ which began its Journey since February 2016 ” ~ I have had to introduce myself in,” My full name and also put in a ~ copyright notice to say I am the site’s only Author and Owner and the sole person who is the Writer of the original content in this website: Who I am & Why I am Writing!
So “This is a Full introduction of myself. My name is Deepa Nilamani Karunaratne (Nee Miss Deepa Nilamani Wanniarachchi), This is “My Picture and a bit about me for you the readers to get a clear picture of who I am, where I come from”!
I am from Sri Lanka and now I am settled in Brisbane Australia with my two sons. I have been born a normal child to a very normal set of loving parents who loved me very much and gave me the best. Starting back from far as I can remember, from about five or six years of my age, Reading and Music has gone hand in hand. Stories and lullabies are all part of Books and Music. I have grown up with books. I am a book lover and books are part and parcel of my life. More than half a century gone still books are all round me. They have gone from story books to novels and then, moving on to keeping house, cooking and all about babies and growing up led to child psychology books too. And now my books are mainly on psychology, philosophy, health, healing and also on many other topics as well. All what is to do about how to become Healthy and Happy and lead a life of Value 🙂
I have played a few other instruments but I have studied piano music from six years until the last exam when I had to stop to do my Advance Levels. In addition to sports and other physical activities, bird watching, drawing, flower arranging, gardening, cooking … well if anyone ask me what my hobbies are, its easier to say what I am not doing rather than what I am doing. What I am least interested is on business matters, and politics to the minimum !!!
I had a good foundation and a happy childhood. Being the eldest naturally I have a strong personality. I do not say I have never made any mistakes. Just like everyone I too have grown up as a normal human being. But no serious crimes 😛 I listened to my parents, respected elders, even now, and did almost everything I was told, and I was liked and loved by almost everybody 🙂
At that time, I never thought one day I would go down the path of ~ “darkness which is another word describing depression”. Looking back to the past few years now at this present time” I cannot even imagine how I came into having those low moods, being such a Bright, Strong and happy go lucky girl I was from my very small days!!!
When I was recovering, I was told by some of my friends and family to write my story. My saying how can I write, came up with the answer that I was good in writing essays in school and also there is no need of any qualifications as such to write. It took sometime as its only after I recovered from depression that the world opened up to me. It was like a veil lifted or a mist that gradually cleared up, and I began to see who I am really, the girl who went down mentally, seems so long time ago and so “Unreal” and “Now I am Back to My real Strong self Again”. This picture is at the, “Top of The Clock Tower in Brisbane City, when we went on a Trip with “The ESL students in Loganlea TAFE in December 2015” on a Tour around The city 🙂
I then started Face Book, and was drawn by all the Colourful and Bright pictures on it and started, “A page called ~ Happiness Quotes” in year 2012 to share Bright and Happy pictures for myself and for others. At that time I didn’t realize that, ” While doing all the quotes I was also lifting myself with it, and then I started to write on it too. By posting this type of thing and going through them endlessly, without my knowledge, I had become Very Positive and moved forward with it. See if this helps You too ❤
After that I went on to form a group on Face Book for people to be more open and discuss. At the same time, I also did some courses through ~ Monash Short Courses Centre, Monash University, on “Personal development and Natural health and Healing” to gain More knowledge. As there were so many who were not on Face Book, and also to spread out, I closed the group and also some of the Face Book pages and “Started this blog”. I am Very Grateful to all those who Supported and Encouraged me along my Journey and also to have given the courage and confidence to write ❤
“So here I am writing about who I was and who I am now”, for all those who read to know that, life’s difficulties are not for one but “For all Human beings”. It can be mental, physical or financial as if one goes down usually the others follow too. Life is such that you never know what lands on you the next day. So we need to have “Compassion, and Loving Kindness to all people”. “As we don’t know what they have gone through in the past, or going through although we cant see or they don’t show it”. So in addition to showing that depressions can be overcome or kept under control, as well as many other mental issues “I want everyone to know that ~ just a “KIND WORD a SMILE” goes a very long way” it doesn’t cost us anything to smile. So “Be Kind, Be Loving and Be Compassionate to all” and you will be rewarded greatly in return ❤
Update 25th August 2019:“Not only have I acquired ~ “The Gift of Healing Hands”~ but I have been “Taking The Therapist’s Voice forward” which I have written in Who I am Now & Why I am Writing!
“Just as Ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped in water, The actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects” ~ His Holiness Dalai Lama ❤
When we focus our energy towards constructing a meaningful life, we are tossing a pebble into the world. Creating a beautiful ripple effect of Inspiration. When one person follows a Dream, tries something new, or take a brave leap, “Everyone around you feels that energy gets motivated. And before long, they are also inspired to, “Try out following their Dreams and Inspire yet another circle/a group of people. So it goes on and on and on ….. I wonder, How many of you will also start writing or doing your own thing now ….. and inspire others too 🙂 ❤
Update: 1st October 2016:
I have been on this topic of Mental Health since I became unwell, and since I have become well and bounced back, 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. https://deepanilamani.com/ 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 not feeling energetic and was was not all that active and moving on. I was getting this strong need to express myself through creativity. My mind had started to run into old interests and hobbies that I used to do, and the need arose ~ not only to share “My story towards wellness but also” ~ “My Joy and Happiness” 🙂
They have been growing in silence, and suddenly they have raised their heads up, pushing myself up and open up myself to the world of color back again
*** Very Important*** Hello to All. I am keeping in Very Good Health. (As a result of still continuing to Pray, Donate, Giving and Sharing, with Dedication and Consistently over the years), now I have begun to really understand further and the Energies have become more and stronger ~ Please Understand that: This is a process that I RECEIVE and I myself is UNAWARE how much further they are going to DEVELOP in Future!
I have gained something that money cannot buy nor can anyone take it away from me. It is something I have earned, “Through sheer Hard work, Sacrifices, Sharing and Giving, and through Loving Kindness” and above all being “Truthful and Honest” ~ “The Powers, The Gifts, The Energies”, are not something that one can achieve easily. I had to take the full journey: cross all rivers, climb all mountains, do what ever to answer, “My Calling” to fall in line with, “The Universal Energy” which is also called “Healing or Pranic energy”. This is our life force energy which is also called, “Prana” in Sanskrit, “chi” in China and “ki” in Japan. As we know, energy can travel so, “Prayer energy which also can be called Healing Energy”can travel far and wide to distant places too. (I Have Prayed For You!) ❤
As I have written above ~ To be able to know who I am, I have posted My Full name and to be seen from where, “I have acquired “The Gift of Healing Hands” I have posted this link of, “Who My Grandfather is and My Great Grand father is : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._P._Wickramarachchi ❤
I hope you have learnt some new things from all what I have written and the picture Quotes. “All articles can be Shared or Passed on, and even take Print outs or Download for free”, for yourself and even others also who can learn and benefit from what I have written. The Very Best of Luck in Your Journey up Your Path” as well. Thank You for reading ❤
