InnerSelf Newsletter August 22nd, 2011.


Our apologies for not sending out a newsletter last week. Our internet service at the office was down for almost a week due to telephone line problems making it difficult to continue "business as usual". While the Daily Inspiration continued its faithful delivery (they had been prepared ahead of time) the newsletter had to take a week off.

This week brings a round of articles to help us deal with any tumultuous passages in our life (I believe we may all have had some of those last week). Rob Preece takes a look at Living with Emotions & Feelings -- how to live with them -- not repress or ignore, but how to respond more healthily to feelings and emotions. Being able to do this is a great boon to our inner peace and well being.

Then we focus on Waking Up: Becoming Aware & Informed, Embracing Your Bliss Through Chocolate (yes chocolate!), Developing Confidence Using Your Body (it's not all in your head!), and last but not least, Becoming the Change (which reflects on relationships and divorce as well as providing great advice for life in general).

A lot of food for thought in this week's new issue (while you nibble on some chocolate without guilt). You may also want to read Pam Younghans perspective on the astrological and planetary forces this week to help shed light on your day to day experience of life.

Scroll down for a short synopsis of the articles and the links to read more...

                 ... Happy Reading!

P.S. We invite you to visit  and "Like" us...  Please be our "Friend". With gratitude, InnerSelf.
