January 3rd, 2016
Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
This week we reflect on the question: "Where do we go from here?" knowing that each step we take affects the next one as well as everyone around us. It's a new year, and while the tendency might be to make grandiose plans for the future, perhaps it is best to Keep Your Focus in the Now: Be Where You Are. We need to approach our future from a position of clarity and strength, and the meditation for Taking Refuge: Receiving and Radiating Spiritual Strength can be of great assistance to us as we move forward. Barbara Marx Hubbard writes about A Call to Action: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential and another article invites us to reflect upon this question: Is Your Soul Calling You To A Higher State of Presence and Flow? Whichever direction you are drawn towards this month, Sarah Varcas reveals the energies of the month in Preparing to Begin: January 2016.
These and many more articles are presented to you to assist you on your journey... reflective and inspirational articles, interesting information, health-related advice, movie-reviews, and much more. Scroll down below for the links to numerous articles this week on a variety of topics.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving year.

Soul tension is basically telling us that there is a disconnection from self — we no longer know ourselves and, instead, cling to masks, labels, and roles. Soul tension is a symptom of resisting the soul, which asks nothing less of us than we dive into the journey where we will discover our as yet unknown inner potential and light.

This shared planetary purpose goes beyond any existing project or organization. It is our challenge to discover how to facilitate social synergy, the coming together of separate people and projects to make a new whole greater than the sum of its parts. This is nature’s way.
