InnerSelf Newsletter: August 13th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 13th, 2017This week, as with every week, we look at different aspects of our life: the blessings and the challenges, and the things we can do to make our life more balanced. Many people feel like they are alone in this journey, yet we are never...

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 30th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 30th, 2017Life on earth is quite a dichotomy. We are in control of our life, yet we are not. We enjoy our existence, yet we don't. It's as if we are continually wavering between two extremes, two polarities, in somewhat of a free-fall. This week we look at the balancing act...

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 23rd, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 23rd, 2017There are many expressions and idioms that suggest how to best deal with life. One that comes to mind is "when life throws you a curve ball, hit it out of the park". This week we look at various ways to deal with life's challenges and blessings...

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 9th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 9th, 2017When life seems to be taking us on a roller-coaster ride, we can remember that the way to keep from "losing it" is to retain our center. And if you've become confused and dizzy from all the ups and downs going on around you, perhaps you will benefit from...

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 2nd, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 2nd, 2017Relationship! We all are involved in one, even if it's only a relationship with our own self. How we deal with that relationship, as well as all others, creates a basis for our life experience. It's not always smooth sailing. This week we look at the essence behind our connection with our own self, our Self (with a capital S), and with others.

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 25th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 25th, 2017You may be familiar with the expression that says you can't give from an empty basket.

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 4th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 4th, 2017As Bob Dylan famously wrote over 50 years ago, the times they are a-changin'. However, these days, a lot of things have the appearance of going in the direction opposite that which we might desire or even prefer. It could be easy to fall into despair or at least a feeling of helplessness. This week, we look at some of our options...

InnerSelf Newsletter: May 21st, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: May 21st, 2017This week's theme focuses on "who you are".

InnerSelf Newsletter: May 7th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: May 7th, 2017We dream, we hope, we seek, we find, we enjoy... and sometimes we don't. These are the things life is made of. The ups and downs and the highs and lows. This week's articles assist us in moving forward with ease and joy on our daily path...

InnerSelf Newsletter: April 2nd, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: April 2nd, 2017One thing everyone has in common is relationships... with family, with co-workers, with friends, with pets, with people at the grocery store... This week we look at relationships and how they affect us, just as we affect them. And we look at how to make our experiences better for everyone involved.

InnerSelf Newsletter: March 19th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: March 19th, 2017This week we look at important questions. Not "Who Am I" but more in the area of "Who Am I Being" and  "What Am I Doing"? Who we are being in the moment, what actions are we taking or not taking, how we are expressing ourselves in the world, how we are treating ourselves and others.

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 22nd, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 22nd, 2017

Each week a theme naturally develops for the new issue. We don't start out with a theme or topic, but the articles that arrive or that are selected come together and have their own synchronicity and connection. This week, the theme is stretching beyond our small world and connecting with the world around us

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 8th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 8th, 2017As we progress into the 2nd week of 2017, we all continue to revise our vision for this new year. This revision is ongoing, whether we do it consciously or not, since plans change, needs shift, and perceptions are altered by inside and outside revelations. This week we take a look at life through the lens of two steps forward and one step back.

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 25th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 25th, 2016This week we look at breaking through barriers of all types... whether it has to do with our belief in ourselves or about how our world works...

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 18th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 18th, 2016While we may all wish to focus on sharing love, gratitude and giving unconditionally at this time of year, we may get entangled in stress, not-enough-time, and family dramas. This week, we bring you various tools and perspectives to make your journey a more peaceful and harmonious one.

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 4th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 4th, 2016This week we look at courage... the courage to do things differently, to follow our heart, to do the "right" thing, to just be true to ourselves. While these don't seem as courageous as saving someone from a burning building, or jumping into a turbulent ocean to save a child, they nevertheless require courage...

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 27th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 27th, 2016As we've all heard, doubtless numerous times, when life hands you lemons make lemonade.

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 13th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 13th, 2016For those of us living in the USA, it's been a tumultuous week. And for those outside the US, one where maybe you asked yourself, what on Earth is going on???

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 6th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: November 6th, 2016Once again this week the image accompanying the newsletter is of a boat. Last week the sailboat was apparently in a precarious situation, while this week the boat is securely tied to shore. Let's hope that our ship remains securely anchored as the waves of life may be turbulent this week. In the USA...

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 23rd, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 23rd, 2016Forest Gump is known for having said "Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." However, I see life as being the outcome of a box of crayons. Depending on which crayons we pick, we will get very different end results. This week...

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 16th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 16th, 2016Sometimes we may feel as if we are walking through a dark tunnel not knowing what is ahead. And we wonder when we will finally reach a place, both physically, emotionally, and mentally, where we will feel good about our life. This week we start off by...

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 9th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 9th, 2016At times in our life we may have the tendency to be like the snail and hide in our shell and move forward very very slowly. However, while we may feel safe doing so, we also are stopping ourselves from stepping forth and experiencing all the beauty and love that life has to offer. This week we share with you articles dealing with...

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 2nd, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 2nd, 2016This week we take a look at the world's duality/unity dichotomy and how we deal with it. And then there's how we deal with the world inside of us.

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 18th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 18th, 2016The articles this week look at perfectionism both in our own selves and in our children.

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 11th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 11th, 2016This new issue of InnerSelf can best be resumed by a quote from Pam's weekly journal: "Trusting in the process is one of the tests of this time... focused on helping us heal a lack of faith. This week, the path to this healing leads us through the contentious realms of right vs. wrong... and meanders its way through thickets of worry and mental stress...

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 4th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 4th, 2016The times they are... intense (and changing too!). On the East coast (in the USA), we've just gone through a hurricane, lots of rain, and flooding. On the West coast, droughts and fires. And everywhere in between the frenzy of upcoming elections... So how do we navigate through all this mess and confusion? The articles this week...

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 28th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 28th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 14th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 14th, 2016While Franklin D. Roosevelt said "the only thing we have to fear is...fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts...", most of us have plenty of fears to go around. So, perhaps we need to brew ourselves a calming cup of chamomile tea (as seen above) and read some of the articles offered this week to help us gain some perspective...

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 7th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 7th, 2016This week our authors assist us in making a connection with our inner needs and dreams. Now of course, when the need is as basic as oxygen it's easy to recognize. But for the other choices in our life, sometimes it takes a bit of inner searching and reflection.

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 31st, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 31st, 2016Stress is a four-letter word! (Even though it has a total of 6 letters, the last two are repeats... thus making it a four-letter word!)  While we may think of stress as an adult problem, it affects humans of all ages (and animals too). This week we take a look at stress....

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 3rd, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: July 3rd, 2016This past week was a challenging one for many people. It was even referred to as "the week from hell" by someone. I'm sure you have your own "horror" stories you could relate. So, in this new issue of InnerSelf, we bring you articles that offer alternatives to the way we may have handled situations that came up recently.

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 26th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 26th, 2016This week's articles are best summarized by a quote from Pam Younghans column: "As we expand our hearts, we discover and recover our knowing that love is greater than fear -- that even the darkest room gives way to the light when a candle is lit."

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 12th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 12th, 2016As I get ready to complete the new issue of InnerSelf, my heart aches with the tragedy of lost life in Orlando.

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 5th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: June 5th, 2016Walls... Sometimes we sit on them, sometimes behind them. At other times we build them, or tear them down.

InnerSelf Newsletter: May 29th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter:  May 29th, 2016Ask anyone about stress and chances are they'll tell you, "Been there, done that!" Of course we've all experienced stress. It's part of living, in one form or another. This week we take a look at stress and offer ways to transform it and even use it to our benefit.

InnerSelf Newsletter: April 24th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: April 24th, 2016Because the articles for InnerSelf are selected and scheduled intuitively, the Universe has a master hand in the divine timing and synchronicity.

InnerSelf Newsletter: February 7th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: February 7th, 2016One of our articles this week focuses on Four Crucial Reasons to Keep Your Body Moving. However, it's not just our body that needs to keep moving forward.

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 24th, 2016

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 24th, 2016Our future is sometimes seen through a misty veil. We don't know exactly what got us to this point, and where this point will take us.

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 27th, 2015

InnerSelf Newsletter: December 27th, 2015For some, January 1st is a meaningless date while for others it signifies a fresh slate and a chance to make important changes in their life. While the first day of January may be an arbitrary starting point for life-transforming changes, it does carry some helpful momentum since so many people are focused on making changes at the same time.

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 18th, 2015

InnerSelf Newsletter: October 18th, 2015While it may not be necessary to see life through rose-colored lenses, it definitely is not recommended to see everything through a grey haze.
