Carnival of Healing #50 - String Cheese

Hey everyone - it is carnival day!! The Carnival of Healing is a weekly round-up of personal Web sites and blogs on the topics of holistic health, wellness, spirituality, and self empowerment.The Carnival of Healing is celebrating its 50th edition. Wowee! Fifty is a nice fat round number. I normally refrain from posting a laundry list style carnival whenever I host but I've been traveling this week and am playing a bit of catch up so that's my excuse for being less than creative. Just to make it interesting I will dub this carnival "String Cheese" for no reason at all. I'm really not trying to string anyone along. Wow... we have lots of great entries!

The 49th edition of our carnival was hosted by Edward Mills at Evolving Times. He has become a Blog Carnival enthusiast and has started up his very own carnival - here's the first edition:Law of Attraction Carnival

Scott Smith, Other Lights, will be hosting our next carnival on September 9. His theme is "Life, Death and the Sacred Transition." If you are interested in hosting a future carnival here's how to sign up. Meanwhile... let's explore today's carnival attractions.

Carnival of Healing #49: Healing VS Allowing

Today's Carnival of Healing is being hosted by Edward Mills at Evolving Times. His theme for the carnival is Healing VS Allowing. I like it! Why do I like it? I like it because the concept of "allowing" is very much in keeping with "surrendering" but the word (allow) is so much more POSITIVE. By allowing we open ourselves up to acceptance and willingness to just be. Surrendering also indicates a willingness to be open and accepting, but the tone feels as if you are giving up or losing a part of yourself. Allowing simply sounds more affirming.
The carnival attractions are interesting, as always, so don't overlook the opportunity to browse the links. This is Edward Mills first time hosting the carnival so give him a friendly welcome. He invites your comments.

Next week I'll be hosting the carnival here at Spiral Visions. Send me your carnvial submissions by Thursday August 24 to be included in my carnival.
