Carnival Of Healing #185 – It’s all about having courage

As you know by now, Carnival of Healing is a weekly round-up of personal blog posts on the topics of holistic health, wellness, spirituality, and self empowerment. Posts range from tips on losing weight, sharpening your brain to stem cell research, Feng Shui to finding our true self! Eventually, it’s all about healing our minds, bodies and Spirit.

So how can today’s edition be complete without including that person who has given tears of joy and hope this week to millions around the globe? If you are one of the few who has not heard of Susan Boyle this week, you definitely need to watch her in this video and then read Clayton Makepeace’s article What Are You So Afraid Of?

Reminds me a quote “Success is never found.  Failure is never fatal. Courage is the only thing.”

– Winston Churchill

(As a private note on the anniversary of my mother’s death, I was quite touched with your writings about your father. I’m told it is a male trait that we try to fix other people’s problems – as opposed to being there for them; but still – I wonder if you know about the Sedona Method – a system of letting go I have been using for six or seven years now and treasure it.)”

Ross presents How To Cure Yourself of Hay Fever posted at Energise for Life, saying, “It’s that time of year again!

We don’t go to work and come home from work in the dark anymore and we start looking forward to Wimbledon, summer fruits and holidays.”

    pearls last blog post..Carnival Of Healing #185 – It’s all about having courage

  7. I’ve watched Susan Boyle’s “Cry Me a River” many times because I find her voice somewhat soothing to my ears. Her music relaxes something in me… I don’t know why…

  8. Thanks for all of these informative blog posts. I have been getting into natural supplements and healing this year after I tried coconut oil as a dietary supplement with good results. I am definitely going to read the Feng Shui bedroom post and the cure yourself of ha fever post tonite. I will work through the rest of the articles later on. Thanks again for this post.

    Mark @ Time to Buy Invest in Stocks Markets last blog post..Investing in the stock market for women and ladies

  9. Hey Pearl! I got your email and it’s funny timing because I have been meaning to get over to your site for some time now. My own blogging has slowed down quite a bit since I started going to school – I just don’t have as much time but at least it is for good reason that I’m not on the computer as much. :) Good to see you posting and thanks so much for checking in on me! It’s nice to know that someone noticed my absence! :) Hugs to you!

  10. @teeni: I didn’t know you started school, that must be interesting too.. I’ve been busy at work and other things so haven’t been around visiting my blogging buddies either.. I’ve been on computer but doing boring stuff, nothing blogging related so I’m looking to get away from it as much as I can :)

    Hugs back!

    @Mark: let us know if you start using Feng Shui, Ive been thinking of getting into that myself but never have time to read more on it but now Im glad to find Pat’s blog on it..

    @Rose: I’m sure we’ll enjoy Susan’s songs for many years to come :)

  11. Thank you so much for sharing the useful thoughts via such kind of nice blog.I did learned a lot by stopping by here today. Keep posting in near future as well:)

  12. I was just thrilled when Susan Boyle opened her mouth and sounded lilke an angel. FOR ONCE….people finally were able to see that you can not judge a book by it’s cover. I wished that would happen more often. I cry for JOY every time I see it. I’m so happy for her and hope, just hope, that it will change other peoples minds as well and maybe give that one person the chance they so deserve. We can only hope. THANKS for the lovely blog. It’s inspiring.

    Shawnna McMainss last blog post..What Could Happen if I Didn’t Get Treatment For My Panic Attacks?

  13. Great post, the hay fever article was awesome. I’ve been suffering for years and some of the tips in the article have made the symptons much easier to manage (although not go away completely!). Keep up the good work!

    Celes | EmbraceLiving.Nets last blog post..30 Tips To Rule Your Job Interview

  16. This is an motivating list you’ve compiled. I’m working my way through them all now. Especially interested in Susan Boyle for some odd reason…I saw an old video from the 70’s with her singing karaoke. She has a great singing voice even back then. She’s really been an inspiration to a lot of people.

    Kimberly Cooks last blog post..UFC PS3 Undisputed 2009 Game

  17. I am diabetic and healing is the most concerning issue for me. I am really surprised to read all those posts because they are something more than a lifeline.

  18. Susan Boyle is an inspiration and provides encouragement that anything is possible by anyone – you don’t need to be anyone special to be something special – some of the articles you link to are awesome, such a motivating read!

    Tom@Fiber blends last blog post..Herbal Fiberblend (colon and parasite cleanse and natural constipation relief)

  19. The quote under the video clip is great and so relevant – we spend so much of our lives looking for success and when we do get some success its not enough we want more – we are never satisfied. I’m trying to change my perspective and be happy now not in the future! Great website – really interesting posts!

    Clare from Low Carbss last blog post..Low carb diets

  20. Pearl, thanks for the inspiring post as well as the useful links and advices. And I love what the “Susan Boyle” message prior to that video.

  21. I looked at the curing hayfever article, as its summer in the UK (although you wouldnt know from the weather!) and i suffer quite badly – lets hope it helps!

  22. “Posts range from tips on losing weight, sharpening your brain to stem cell research, Feng Shui to finding our true self! Eventually, it’s all about healing our minds, bodies and Spirit.”

    Your blog has been a big help. Reading the posts helps me find courage and hope during my dark moments.

    “So how can today’s edition be complete without including that person who has given tears of joy and hope this week to millions around the globe? If you are one of the few who has not heard of Susan Boyle this week, you definitely need to watch her in this video and then read Clayton Makepeace’s article What Are You So Afraid Of?”

    Susan Boyle and the words of Clayton Makepeace are very inspiring. Like many, I am also haunted by the ghost of insecurity most of the time. I guess, I have to read Makepeace’s words over and over again to help me cope with my insecurities and fear.
