Carnival of Healing #135

Welcome, one and all to Carnival of Healing #135. For those just joining us, the Carnival of Healing is a weekly roundup of blogs across the Internet featuring information about healing, healthy living, self empowerment, and spirituality. The Carnival travels continuously through cyberspace, each week setting up on a different host site. The Reiki Digest is privileged to be this week's host. If you're interested in Reiki, we invite you to subscribe free to the world's only weekly publication about Reiki, delivered each week to your inbox.

Last week's Carnival of Healing was hosted by Mind Mart, and next week's host will be A-ha! TV.

It may be too soon to call it a Carnival of Healing tradition, but we're going to use the same structure that worked so well for Mind Mart last week, dividing the posts featured into three categories: Body, Mind, and Spirit. Of course, we can't really separate them, but for Carnival purposes we can:


Every carnival needs music, and at Brain Blogger, Lindsey Kay, M.D., tells us that Stroke Recovery Improves with Music: "Stroke victims who listened to music for 1 to 2 hours daily showed significant improvement in certain mental functions than those that did not." For anyone interested in the brain (and who isn't?) that is a great site.

If you're one of the many who prefers the natural approach to looking your best, you might want to check out Give it a Try - Skincare from the Kitchen Cupboard at Allie's Answers. Yes, my friends, there is yet another handy use for baking soda!

And Organic Makup and Skin Care takes on the same issue in The Healing Life Force of Natural Ingredients.

Stone Mountain Shiatsu in the U.K. offers a roundup post on shiatsu in the media -- reminds us of what we do here weekly at The Reiki Digest.

All About Your Body and Spirit focuses more on the body this week with What is Protein, And Why Do You Need It?

Alex Bo's post is definitely in the body category: Fix Crooked Teeth with Dental Braces.

You might not expect an e-publishing blog to address the subject of germs, but hey, e-publishers get sick, too. The post at OLIN e-Book e-Publishing is titled Big Picture Progressive Exposure The author confesses to being a germ-o-phobe, but there's some mind and spirit in there, too.

The next submission may be just in time: 10 Ways to Boost Your Immunity from

Carnival of Healing founder and organizer Phylameana Iila Desy's contribution isn't just about the body, but it's got the word in its title so we'll put it here even though it addresses all three categories: Eckhart Tolle and the Nightly Body Scan.

buddy don's contributions, one prose, one poetry, are also impossible to categorize, but since he writes about a visit to the neurologist and is in physical pain, we'll include it in the Body section. Oh, and here's the poem inspired by the same experience. Get well soon, buddy don!

And speaking of visits to the doctor, Christina Laun at gives us 25 Tips to Help Protect Yourself from Medical Errors.


Our first item in the Mind category is from Jessica Jones in Montana, USA, who contributes My Struggle With Living Purposefully from her blog Practical Nourishment. She's been wrestling with her own mind lately, and I believe she'll prevail.

Party time! Or not. Australian motivational speaker Craig Harper offers us The Pity Party: Slow-Dancing with Misery.

Alex Blackwell at The Next 45 Years offers a list that won't take quite that long in 24 Weekly Actions for Creating Lasting Success.

Life Coach David B. Bohl at Slow Down Fast has a list that just a bit longer in his post, "Are You Happy? If Not, Here are 25 Ways to Get There."

Frederick Premji at Blog Motivation keeps it short with 7 Questions to Finding Your True Passion.


Brandon at FitBuff knows that fitness isn't just physical, as he shows with his spirit-minded collection of Friday Fitness Quotes.

At Cool Cat Care Stuff, guest poster Eri Hariono writes about Reiki for Cats. Unfortunately there's some common misinformation in the background info about Reiki: Usui wasn't a doctor, but many practitioners don't know that because that's what they were taught. It's a nice piece just the same.

Healing Through Words is definitely in the Spirit category, addressing the question, "Who is Love?"

Would you like to hear the Inner Sound of your Soul? Swami Pyjami tells us how.

Thanks to all our contributors. Now that we've divided them up, let's reunite the body, mind, and spirit, and wrap up this edition. See you next time!
