World Mental Health Day
The “World Mental Health Day” is celebrated annually in over 100 countries on 10 October. This year, it falls on this coming Wednesday (10/10/2012). There are daily events (27 Sep 2012 – 2 Jan 2013) held at the Jurong Regional Library that you may want to visit if you’re staying in Singapore. You can also find out more info on mental health issues at the Silver Ribbon Singapore web site at www.silverribbonsingapore.com.
You can also click on this link to access the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) site if you are staying outside Singapore. Last Year (2011) theme was “The Great Push: Investing In Mental Health”, and this year (2012) theme is “Depression: A Global Crisis.”
I was at a local library the other day and noticed a stack of “World Mental Health Day” brochures placed near the customer service counter. I took a copy as I thought it’d be great to do my part (social responsibility) to help raise public awareness about mental issues on my site. Next, I thought I could write an article to share with you how we can identify the tendency signs on mental health through the Elements of Numbers (EON) method.
I’d originally wanted to use popular celebrities who suffered from depressions as case study since it’s easy to check on them through the Internet search (just search “Celebrities with Depression”). However, when I began writing this article, my instinct told me to plot the chart based on the established day. I noted the similarities of the tendency signs in the chart on mental health.
Could it be purely coincidence the “World Mental Health Day” was held on 10th October every year?
From non-scientific standpoint, could there be metaphysical forces giving us earlier “cause and effects” clues on mental health so we don’t need to wait a long-time for medical discoveries to prove its factuality?
According to the World Health Organisation web site, “more than 350 million people of all ages, in all communities, and is a significant contributor to the global burden of disease. Although there are known effective treatments for depression, access to treatment is a problem in most countries and in some countries fewer than 10% of those who need it receive such treatment.”
From the same WFMH site, the World Mental Health Day was first established in 1992. Let me share with you how the tendency signs from the EON chart using the Elements of Numbers (EON) method.
In the Five Elements, we associate mental health to the Metal element. This implies depression or mental-related symptoms could be caused by strong Metal element; or Metal is “controlled”, “weakened”, or “repelled” by another stronger element (Fire, Water, Wood, and Earth).
You may want to get a copy of my book “Elements of Numbers: Fast and Easy Character Profiling” and refer to Chapter 3 (Page 82) for more information on the Five Elements.
Let’s look at the Day and Month (10 October) and the resulting numbers in I-J-M-S-T-U. The numbers (1-1-2-3-3-6) remain constants every year. In basic numbers, it’s like [Alone-Alone-Talk-Fast-Fast-Money]. I’ve described various traits related to the Five Element in my book where you can check out too. For example, we can correlate the number patterns to health matters [Worry-Worry-Thoughts-Stress-Stress-Mental]. From these patterns, we can say that excessive worries (1), emotional (Hidden Number 4) and muzzy thoughts (2) could manifest the depression (temperaments and stress, 3) vibes that influenced the mental state (6) of a person.
According to the “WMHDAY 2012” PDF file (available in various languages) from the WFMH site, “depression is a common mental disorder that presents with depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, decreased energy, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, and poor concentration. Moreover, depression often comes with symptoms of anxiety. These problems can become chronic or recurrent and lead to substantial impairments in an individual’s ability to take care of his or her everyday responsibilities.”
Depression is “a treatable illness and is a disorder that can be reliably diagnosed and treated in primary care.” From EON perspective, what’s needed is to focus on the missing element Earth (5) to harmonise the energies around. This means applying the “back to Mother Earth nature” traits – stay calm and composed, practise meditation or yoga, exercise and taking care of the digestive system (have balanced diet). In Five Elements, we can use Earth to weaken the Fire element so it could reduce its influence on the Metal element. We can use Water element to weaken the Metal element (thoughts-influencing vibes – communication: cognitive behaviour therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy or problem-solving treatment) to educate the person. And we can also use Wood to repel the Metal element weakening its effect on the mental mind (through health care management).
Another coincidental observation – Last year (2011) theme was “The Great Push: Investing In Mental Health.” Can you correlate that to the patterns 2-4-6-1-8-9 [Talk-Plan-Invest-Mental-Stress-Success] in M-N-O-P-Q of PY2011 chart? What about this year 2012 theme “Depression: A Global Crisis”? Are there any correlations to the patterns: 2-5-7-3-6-3 [Talk-Travel (Gobal)-Support-Depression-Mental-Action]?
Of course it’s easy for me to spin a story with the patterns, I could hear sceptics saying.
But when you understand the traits and characteristics associated to the numbers (1-9) and the elements (Five Elements), you could easily made the observations based on the tendency signs present in the chart. You don’t need medical doctors to “scientifically” reconfirm your earlier “non-scientific” metaphysical and numerological findings!
Confused again? Check my book on the Five Elements and the health-related traits associated to the numbers. If you’re still confused, read my book a few times. Do more profiling exercises on celebrities with depression. Look into your own case histories or those of your friends, relatives, or someone you know. Try to piece them together to bring the enlightenment spark in your profiling skill sets. If all else fails, consider registering for my next EON WORKSHOP once I’ve confirmed the schedule. I’ll then share the visual imagery method to identify health traits associated to the elements and numbers.
Next year (2013) chart is 2-6-8-5-1-6 [Talk-Mental-Responsibility-Global-Alone-Mental]. Could WFMH next year’s theme be on the need to reinforce global awareness that people with depression needs family, caregivers, and government’s support, just as much as they have to depend on their own fortitude to cure the illness? It doesn’t matter anyway whether the next year’s theme is coincidental since what’s important is for people with depression-like signs to seek help early.
So, seek help early if you think you or someone else have depression-like symptoms. Stay Positive and Healthy. Be Happy & Stop Worrying too Much!
