InnerSelf Newsletter: June 26th, 2016
Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week's articles are best summarized by a quote from Pam Younghans column: "As we expand our hearts, we discover and recover our knowing that love is greater than fear -- that even the darkest room gives way to the light when a candle is lit." Whatever your current experiences, they can be "lightened" with a few helpings of forgiveness, compassion, acceptance, and of course, love.
Thus this week we shed light on old grievances in such articles as Being My Father’s Son and Forgiveness and Everyday Compassion Are A Gift. We master the art of letting go in Writing Is Easier When You Stop Trying So Hard and Celebrate and Dance On Life. We then offer you some modalities to help with the process in Two Forms of Nature Medicine: Sunlight and Forest Bathing.
And of course, we also have numerous additional articles ranging from history to weight-loss (and a heaping serving in-between).
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Every now and then you’ll hear that a full moon is designated a blue moon and therefore of particular astrological significance. But you may also notice that different people designate different moons as blue, which can get rather confusing! In fact, there are three different types of blue moon.

In the absence of a strong father figure, boys and young men pick up on the patriarchy of society to mold them; they become victims perpetuating their own woundedness. By this estimation, all men are victims of the sins of the fathers, as the Bible tells it, visited generation upon generation.

It’s necessary to be conscious of the way we store events in the body and how they create layers of similar emotions—grief with grief, joy with joy, anger with anger, and love with love. These layers are like the strata in rocks, building great cliffs of emotions that are touched each time another similar emotion is experienced.

How do you feel when you encounter cheerful, happy people who laugh a lot and seem to find some good even in the worst of circumstances? I can recall what my reaction to these people was in the past. I would stick my finger in my mouth and act as if I was gagging.

It is also highly beneficial to reread the past week's astrological journal as it gives a hindsight view of the events that took place and may provide many "ah-ha" insights.
We add articles to the website regularly. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
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.
