Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.

As we all have experienced, life has its ups and downs and its challenges. This week we look at how to best deal with those difficult times. Sometimes we may just be feeling overwhelmed and what is needed is Clearing Out the Clutter in Your Life Activities.

One author recommends Changing Your Own Mind and Getting Out of Your Own Way. Another article deals with Saying Yes! and Releasing Pain, Beliefs, and Assumptions Into Peace. However, it is important to realize that Failing Can Be A Positive Element -- If You Let It. As a short to-do list, the author of the book, Life in Transition, presents Seven Ways To Traverse Your Way Through Any Transition.             

We also welcome (and invite) any feedback... Please let us know if something isn't working, a link is broken, or is missing, etc. To send us your comments, hover over the "This and That" item in every page's top menu, and click on the "Contact Us" button. And of course, donations are always welcomed and appreciated (and help keep InnerSelf online).

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Changing Your Own Mind and Getting Out of Your Own WayMost of us walk around with heads busy as beehives, aware of some thoughts as they come and go but not fully aware of the buzz of mental activity just beneath the surface.

Our minds are cluttered with endless have-tos and to-dos that keep us running at breakneck speed. We are continually multi-tasking and bombarded by a devastating amount of information that doesn’t need to be there.

It is also highly beneficial to reread the past week's astrological journal as it gives a 20/20 view of the events that took place and may provide many "ah-ha" insights.


We are updating many of the articles that were in our archives and are republishing them since they are still very relevant today. Here are a few of them:

* Fasting Safely for Health: The Pro and Con and the Why and How

* Clearing the Atmosphere of Your Home with a Spiritual Cleansing

* Preventing Migraine Headaches and Stopping Them in their Tracks

* Six Healing Sounds Generate Energy for the Healing of Different Organs

* Discovering Nutritional Therapy: The Role of Food in our Lives

* Afraid of Dying? How to Move Away from "death-a-phobia"

* Unblocking Nasal Congestion with Natural Remedies

* Cosmic Income Tax: A Humorous Look at an Enlightened Tax System

You can also visit each section according to your interests. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".

Living in Harmony: Be Inspired

The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.

Personal Development: Be Insightful

The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Intuition & Awareness, Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (included Meditation), and Happiness & Success.

Social & Political: Be Informed

"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics affect us on a personal and planetary level and are thus very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
