Our emotions sometimes feel like they rule us and we may need to discover What Pushes Our Buttons and What Can We Do About It. Sometimes they are triggered by old patterns. Cleansing Family Emotional Clutter & Genetic Footsteps becomes a necessity if we want to be free of being controlled by our reactions.
Know thyself is a wise maxim, yet knowing others is also essential to harmonious relationships. Why Is Recognizing Needs and Values Important in Relationships?

We invite you to absorb the inspiration in this week's articles and allow yourself to be guided with inner clarity as to who you are and what you need to do in order to live the life that you are inspired to live... and be the person you are inspired to be.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
