Top Yoga & Self Improvement Blog Articles
Meditation, Yoga & Spiritual Growth Carnival – Edition #28
Welcome to the 28th edition of the Meditation, Yoga and Spiritual Growth carnival.
There were way too many submissions for this issue of the carnival (almost 70!). Unfortunately, many writers submitted more than one entry, despite my request to them not to, and many others just sent unrelated or low quality articles, hoping to get a link from Mastery of Meditation & Yoga, due to it’s high traffic and high Google Page Rank. So I had to reject quite of few of the submissions and hope writers will be more conscientious next time, but if not, there is always the delete button . Well, the final version, containing the top self improvement and spiritual growth blogs, is ready below and I hope you do enjoy some of the great articles that it does include.
I was happy though that this edition got more Yoga related articles than are normally submitted, and I hope this indicates a trend for the future as well. In addition, there is lots of great stuff on meditation, health, law of attraction, positive thinking, mind power, self improvement, happiness, diet, etc...
For my fellow active stumblers if you are interested in networking on Stumble Upon, please go ahead and reach out to me. My stumble upon id is http://anmolmehta.stumbleupon.com.
Please link back to this carnival from your Blog, as well as submit the carnival to your favorite social bookmarking sites (Stumble Upon is preferred). More link love the better for everyone :-).

Health and Wellbeing
Aparna presents Papaya for health and beauty posted at Beauty and Personality Grooming, saying, "Few people realize what a wholesome and nutritive fruit the papaya is. It has more carotene when compared to other fruits such as apples and guava, custard apple, plantains. The ripe papaya fruit contains large quantities of carotene. Papayas are high in ascorbic acid content (vitamin C) and the flesh is very high in vitamin A. There are also small amounts of calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin present in papaya. It is low in calories and sodium, and high in potassium. Papaya is a common man’s fruit which is reasonably priced and has a high nutritive value. This fruit is available throughout the year. Like the banana tree nearly every part of the papaya tree is said to be useful and of medicinal value."

Brain Blogger presents How Many Babies Is Too Many? posted at Brain Blogger, saying, "Like many of you, I have watched as the world has been captivated by the birth of the octuplets to Nadya Suleman. To say that this case has opened heated debates on the ethical and psychological issues related to in vitro fertilization (IVF) would be a gross understatement. What makes this case especially newsworthy is the fact that Ms. Suleman not only has a total of 14 children, all with the help of IVF, but is also single and unemployed."
Applying the Law of Attraction presents Making Positive Eating Choices with the LOA posted at Applying the Law of Attraction Membership Library, saying, "The Law of Attraction can bring abundance into every aspect of your life.

The suggestion is to go to your local newsstand and pick up magazines you wouldn’t ever read and read them for ideas, connections and trends."
Paula Kawal presents Are You Listening? posted at Journey Inward Productions, saying, "Have you ever considered speaking to your chakras and getting their meaning directly? I’ve experimented with this before while experiencing symptoms, which wrote about it in my post “Gotta Question? Ask Your Body…” but this exercise is more about asking the chakras to explain how they currently function for you in your life."
Will Edwards presents Success vs. Happiness posted at White Dove Books, saying, "Like a lot of Americans, I was raised in a school system that tried to motivate me with some fear. "You better get good grades, unless you want to dig ditches for a living." Or, "you have to have a goal or a career, or you’ll just float through life," as if our worth as humans and are happiness was only determined by achieving some constructed measure of success."
Sandra Rodrigues presents My slightly ‘mental’ daily exercises posted at Motherly Marketing, saying, "I wanted to have these accessible to you somehow in this site, so I decided the best way would be to have a page dedicated to it in case you need the resources without feeling like I am just putting on the site to generate commission from affiliate links. Actually is more to give you the chance to go and get them in case you need and most of these are for free anyway, unles you want to go ahead and get the paid package."
Nancy Miller presents Learn to Look Baby Beautiful – Pregnancy Feel-Good Tips posted at Ultrasound Technician Schools.
Will Edwards presents The Death of Time Management posted at Inspiration, saying, "There is no such thing as Time Management – it is a complete misnomer! You simply cannot manage time. Systems that claim to give you extra hours in the day are just methods of self-delusion. High-performing individuals get 24 hours in their days; and so too do low-performing people. So forget the whole idea of Time Management; what you really need is Self Management; and, in this article, we will consider what that means."
Paula Kawal presents Are You Asking Spirit to Help or to Mind Read? | Paula Kawal posted at Journey Inward Productions, saying, "Sometimes we are in obvious need of help but are completely unable to articulate it even to ourselves…these are usually the times when we just wait for someone else to notice our predicament and offer a hand. I call this looking for a mind reader."
