Carole and I welcome you to the brand new simplified and detoxed Abundance Carnival.
To begin, a few affirmations on Abundant Health that are both fun and inspiring.
This carnival leads off with a post I read during the week on the blog The Next 45 years. Alex was a regular contributor to the Abundance Thinking Carnival. He had a guest post by Jenny Mannion of Healing Pain Naturally. Jenny writes how she has used the Law of Attraction for self healing to overcome a disorder that she had been told by doctors that with all her chronic illnesses the best I could hope for was to “manage my pain with prescription medication. I was told my pain and quality of life would only worsen. After seeing The Secret, I knew I had to learn all I could about the Law of Attraction and the mind/body connection so that I could HEAL myself."
This post and her blog are so inspiring. Jenny has developed her own 8 step PAGING ME method to stay in the moment and be focused. A must read and so complementary to this carnival’s theme of Abundant Health,
A big thank you to everyone for your inspiring entries. Now to the 5 posts we have chosen from the 28 entries.
First we have another story of self healing by Jon "aka" Palehorse Redivivus at Beyond Within. Jon tells his story about Overcoming Attention Deficit Disorder: Four Powerful Techniques . "After deciding long-term medication was not an option for me, I spent more than a year exploring alternate healing methods and figuring out how to overcome my ADD. These are the four most effective methods I found." His four methods are something we can all employ when we need to be clear and focused as well as for becoming abundantly healthy.
Our thoughts do affect how we feel and Gabriella Kortsch writes about How Your Thoughts Change Your Body. Gabriella uses the work of biologists and one of my favourite writers on the topic of the power of water as a healing force, Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto. As Gabriella says: "Thoughts do change our bodies. We used to receive this information only through metaphysical sources. Now we receive this information from cellular and molecular biologists."
Our emotional well being is an important part of having Abundant Health. Both Rose Walbrugh and Warren Wong look at this from 2 different points of view.
Rose asks us: Are you addicted to your emotions? and challenges us with a closing question: "Are we just as blatantly addicted to our emotions as the smoker to his cigarettes? And instead of merely popping into the corner shop to feed our addiction, do we inadvertently orchestrate our lives around our emotional addictions?"
Warren provides several reason Why Mediation Can Be Very Useful . He illustrates through a conversation with Person A and Person B how our emotions can take over and we become defensive. Each is trying to explain their own position and will refuse to listen until he/she feels that his/her point has been understood! However, that’ll never happen if both people are in that state! As Warren says: "This is where mediation can be very useful."
The Sweet Smell of Success from GP looks at our overall well being : We close ourselves from life and slowly forget everything about why you started this in the first place. As you’re out there in the world, folks, remember to be patient. “Patience grasshopper” Deep breath.There’s an ancient Buddhist proverb that goes, “Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water; after enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.” It’s a good saying, not only for seeking an enlightened mind, but for seeking success in any fashion; it means to keep doing the work, no matter what. Be patient. Keep going. Don’t be detoured by your own success or failure- let it instead be just another “town along the road”.
What does having Abundant Health or being Abundantly Healthy mean for you?
Leave a comment below and submit your story to the next edition of Abundance Carnival. This will be over at The Healthy Living lounge. You can submit your wonderful post here. Closing time is Sunday 24th February EST (USA).
We look forward to seeing you in 2 weeks.
Thank you for reading and wishing you a deliciously healthy Valentine’s Day.
Suzie & Carole
Thanks so much Suzie and Carole! I am grateful you included my post on Alex’s site as well as information on my blog. Now with new prescriptions being recalled on a weekly basis I feel it is more important than ever to look within to heal. If I did it — LOTS more people can as well! Your blog is wonderful and a great resource to help many! Gratefully, Jenny
Thank you for writing that wonderful post and sharing your experiences, it was just so appropriate for the Carnival.
Hi Suzie. Your YouTube video is nice and relaxingly calm. In regards to the secret, I got the 4 hour soundtrack with Rhonda Byrne from my mother in law (a great change from last years socks and jocks). I have listened to the entire 4 hours in my car 14 times!
I go for long drives, the longest one was 23 hours each way + breaks. That was with my 2 sons to go and visit my mother. Needless to say, I have a bit of abundant listening time on my hands during those travels. Australia has a few long distance destinations.
Yes, the Law Of Attraction works for healing as long as you believe it does. Much can be done with the right mindset.
Yes it is a good listen. How are you finding it is impacting on you life.
i know the more I listen to tapes the more impact they have.
yes we do need to have a positive mindset
What an interesting post you have here on attention deficit disorder. This can be cured though. I’ve tried on websites to help me with this problem and it really works! http://www.attention-deficit-disorder.net has really helped me and i can see an improvement in my condition already.
I am happy you found that a useful post and thankyou for sharing the link.
Thanks for sharing all those interesting and very inspiring posts. I learn something from this post “The Sweet Smell of Success”.. I love to read it!
I am happy you loved that post. PG does write in an entertaining way.
