Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
This week, we take a look at what is stopping us from attaining our goals and making our dreams come through and come true. Barbara Berger recommends that you Follow Your Passion and Stop Limiting Yourself. Perhaps, one way to do so is to ask yourself: Are You Blooming Where You’re Planted? Sometimes the blockages we're facing can be made transparent by Understanding Karma and Resolving Emotional Wounds. We can facilitate the process (and our life) by Adopting Perspective In The Face of Challenge.
We also bring you a variety of other articles with interesting information, such as How Do Hummingbirds Draw In Nectar?, Autistic People Are More Creative Than You Might Think, and Islamic Climate Declaration Converts Religious Principles Into Greener Practice. (See additional articles below.)

We all know when we are following our passion or our heart’s desire because it feels right. Everyone has experienced this feeling of ‘rightness’ at some time in his/her life. It’s called integrity.
