InnerSelf Newsletter: June 19th, 2016 

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at reconnecting with our inner wisdom and inner healer. Of course, this requires some introspection and sometimes asking ourselves some hard questions. We may need to discover The Wisdom of Fear and Reach Beyond Our Comfort Zone. However the healer part of ourselves is more innate than we may think, as explained in Working with Water: Sacred Rituals.

Doubts may come up as we wonder How Can I Know What's Best For Me? You can keep your inner sight clear by Freeing Yourself of Bad Moods and also by learning to Slow Down, Notice, and Bask in the Mundane.

We also have some additional articles for your reading pleasure. Scroll down below for the links to all of the articles added to the website this week.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

How Can I Know What's Best For Me?

Written by Barbara Berger.

How Can I Know What's Best For Me?

One of the biggest things I've discovered working with clients everyday is how extremely difficult and challenging it is for most people today to know what is best for them to think, say and do in the various situations and relationships in their lives.

The Wisdom of Fear and Reaching Beyond Our Comfort Zone

Written by Sarah Varcas.

The Wisdom of Fear

Now more than ever Pluto’s transformative power supports a positive manifestation of our collective destiny. In this motif we see the potential for change which consolidates progress even if, at first glance, there appears much cause for despair.

Freeing Yourself of Bad Moods

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T. 

Freeing Yourself of Bad Moods

Funky moods obscure our experience for hours, days, weeks, or even longer. Left unattended, they shape our personalities and determine the quality of our lives. We think that we have no control over our moods but the truth is quite the contrary.

Slow Down, Notice, and Bask in the Mundane

Written by Nancy Bolling.

Slow Down, Notice, and Bask in the Mundane

I’ve received many a bouquet of flowers in my life, but the one that stands out as the most romantic was a little bunch of wildflowers presented to me many years ago by my then-partner. He kissed me hello and shrugged, “I saw these growing on the side of the road. They were so pretty and colorful, made me think of you."

Working with Water: Sacred Rituals

Written by Nora Caron.

Working with Water: Sacred Rituals

A few years ago, I gave conferences in Montreal regarding the healing properties of natural spring water. I was fascinated by the reports of people drinking natural spring water and stating that many of their illnesses vanished or greatly improved just by drinking such water.

The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.

"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 are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
