Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
One of our articles this week focuses on Four Crucial Reasons to Keep Your Body Moving. However, it's not just our body that needs to keep moving forward. Our mind, our old patterns, our expectation of our self and of others, our emotions, our fears, all of these need to keep shifting as well.
Sarah Varcas shares that It's February: Time to Wake Up and Smell The Coffee! Part of that "waking up" involves Rediscovering Yourself When Life Puts the Squeeze On You, and Turning On Your Brights & Beaming Your Radiance.
And perhaps once we've done all of the above we'll be ready to Let Go of Fear Based Beliefs and Find True Love whether that is love of self or love of "other".
To create a "better" world for us all (whatever that image conjures up for you...health, happiness, abundance, community, loving relationships, etc.) may involve getting in touch with Ancient Knowledge Guidance (and creating) New Archetypes For A New World.

With Mercury retrograde through much of last month we may have been busy tying up loose ends, sorting through matters that we thought were done and dusted and generally clearing the decks of unfinished business, be it practical, emotional or spiritual.

We were trained to believe that we are empty or broken, and if we can just get someone to give us what we are missing, we would be happy. Then we must control our supposed source of good so that person will keep doing the things that make us feel loved.

Traditional Native American societies may be the best models of balanced societies in existence today—with only about 500 years of European contact and assimilation, versus 2,000 years. Native people viewed themselves—not their political, social, or religious lives—as individuals. The names that Native groups gave themselves generally translated to “the People” or “human beings.”

When the six-year-old showed his drawing to the grownups in his life, instead of seeing a boa constrictor digesting an elephant, they thought it was a drawing of a hat.

Written by Sara Avant Stover.
Sweet Sara. That’s what people always used to call me. It didn’t matter where I went in the world — whether it was to visit a cousin in the Midwest, have tea with a girlfriend in Bangkok, or read a piece of fan mail from someone I’d never met before.
