Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
Each week, as the featured articles come together, the topic of the week manifests itself. This week, simply reading the titles presents the story of our journey:
So journey along with me as we discover How You and I Can Restore The World To Wholeness, because Our Wounds Can Be Our Greatest Source Of Strength. When we are Healing the Shadows: Love is the Only Gift Worth Giving. Through it all we remember to Trust the Dance of Life and Live an Experience of Expansion and Joy and learn How to Relax...You Can't Be Stressed and Relaxed At The Same Time.
Then in our additional articles section we find the answers to questions such as: Can Short Bouts Of Light Exercise Really Make You Healthier?, Can Wearing Orange Tinted Glasses Before Bed Help You Sleep?, Do We Learn Better When We’re Punished?, What Is That Warm Blob In The Pacific Ocean? and what is The Greater Good And Why It Matters More Than Ever.

A FEW ADDITIONAL ARTICLES:
ALSO... we are adding articles to the website each week. Rather than list them all here, you can visit each section according to your interests. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
Discover Inspiring Articles in Living in Harmony:
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
Discover Insightful Articles in Personal Development:
The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Intuition & Awareness, Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (included Meditation), and Happiness & Success.
Discover Informational Articles in Social & Political:
"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.
