Carnival of Healing #205
Welcome to today's edition of the Carnival of Healing. The carnival is a weekly round-up of blogs across the Internet featuring information about healing, self empowerment, and spirituality. The carnival home is on my About.com Holistic Healing GuideSite.
Facebookers are invited to become a fan of the Carnival of Healing Group Page! I would also like to extend an invitation to carnival followers to Friend me on Facebook.
I sifted through quite a few submissions that were spammy, link farms, and prostheletizing tools, which were immediately deleted. Brought to you are the best carnival attractions, nothing less. Here they are:
Daylle Deanna Schwartz continues her Law of Attraction themed posts. This week she discusses taking control of your manifestations. Daylle says "When you feel out of control, it's hard to lose weight, achieve goals or manifest good stuff because of the message you send to the LOA. But you can slowly take control and attract everything you want by changing the message you put out to the Universe."
Anthony Freeman's contributed blog post felt a bit disjointed to me at first, but yet it still grabbed me. I ended up reading it twice to fully get the gist of what I believe he was trying to convey.

And, not only that, but he wants us to also take a closer at our goals and ambitions to find out if these things are really what we want. Surely there is something ever bigger or better to aim for. Well, at least that's the message I got out of it. His post may very well speak differently to you though.
This week Kaushik Cholkshi shares some strikingly intimate details about his Indian heritage and his upbringing in Africa before fleeing to an Austrian refugee camp with his parents when he was a teenager.

Awakening is a continuing theme of his blog, Beyond Karma. Kaushik is a frequent contributor to this carnival. I always look forward to his posts.
On a lighter note, Elisha Webster Emerson ponders ever widening rings in her thoughtful meanderings about circles encountered in our lives: body shapes, coming full circle life cycles, crop circles...
Alvaro Fernandez educates us on the "working memory" or rather the "working memory deficits" that contribute to ADHD in children and adults as indicated in a scientific study. Alvaro compares working memory training and medication treatments for ADHD. He says "Results from this study indicate that working memory training yields greater benefits in WM for children with ADHD than are provided by stimulant medication treatment. Furthermore, memory gains following training persist for a significant period. Because adequate WM functioning is critically important for children's academic success, ..."
