Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
When we think of communication we usually think of it having to do with others, but communicating with our own self is the key to breaking through patterns and whatever else is holding us back from creating the life we desire. This week we discover How Talking To Yourself Can Save Your Marriage. (Communicating with others is not always that simple either. Did you know there are Two Kinds of Feedback To Give When Someone Is Changing Their Behavior.)
However, introspection helps us gain understanding about "what makes us tick" and helps clear the way for us to move ahead with our dreams and aspirations. The authors of Tapping into Wealth share the importance of Understanding the Power of Your Blocks. Yet, even when we've encountered a disappointment or set-back, knowing the Three Ways To Get Through A Bad Breakup can help you overcome all kinds of challenging situations (not just relationship ones).

I began experimenting with the tuning forks with a few of my massage therapy clients. I found that if a client was complaining of pain in a particular area, the fork would produce either a loud, sharp tone or a tone full of static and “noise.” After holding the fork over the area, I found that after a few moments the tone would become clear...
