InnerSelf Newsletter July 11th, 2011.

This week we take a look at personal finances, prosperity, abundance, success... and creating a life that brings us joy and happiness.

While we all know that money does not necessarily bring us happiness, one can also be certain that poverty, of itself, doesn't bring happiness either... If you're not happy, suddenly becoming poor probably won't have you jumping for joy.

The authors we bring you this week help shed light on the Financial Bogeymen in our life, and also discover that As You Reap, So Will You Sow. The question "which comes first, the chicken or the egg" comes to mind.

One thing that is certain, We Are Not Beggars, and if we are behaving like some then that may be the source of the presence of "lack" in our life. Marie T. Russell, with the assistance of Mike Dooley's new book, Manifesting Change, shares some "ah ha!" moments from her life.

Of course, once we clear out our mind's closet of erroneous beliefs and projections, then we need to fill it with the wondrous creations that we desire for our future. Mike Bara brings us some information about 2012: The Time of Choice, while Ernest Holmes, founder of "new thought", reminds us that We Are Creative: Thinking Makes It So...

This is a powerful group of articles designed to help us bust through any limitations that we have set or accepted for ourselves. The time has come to claim our power and realize that we are responsible for the life we live. We are responsible for where we are going, as well as where we end up, so we need to make sure we are headed in that direction.

We remind you to read this week's astrological column as well, as it has some fascination information and questions to reflect on.

Wishing you a journey, as well as a destination, filled with happiness, joy, and laughter...


                 ... Happy Reading!

PLEASE VOTE ON THE ARTICLES... (excuse the all caps, but we wanted to catch your attention... yes, we are shouting :)  and thanks for the increased number of votes this week... please keep it up/thank you.

There are several mechanisms at the top of each article to "vote". One is the new Google +1 which helps us in the search rankings. The other, familiar to all by now, is the Facebook "like".

When you vote by clicking on one, or both, of these you are helping support InnerSelf since it increases our "ranking" on these networking sites. Of course following us on Facebook helps as well, and Tweeting about an article or about the website itself is also of great assistance.

The name of the game is in numbers (apparently), so please help us increase our visibility by voting on articles, following us on Facebook and/or Twitter, and by sharing us with your friends. And it's free for you to do so... It just takes a few seconds of your time :)  Thank you.

Each article has a link at the bottom that will allow you to "quote this article on your website"...   It adds a short "snippet" of the article to your site so you can share the article with your own visitors... Try it out...


Each article has a comment section at the end of the article after the author bio, as well as buttons that you can use to share the article(s) on various locations such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.


We invite you to leave comments on Facebook @innerselfmagazine, or send us an email with your comments, suggestions, etc.
