Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This new issue of InnerSelf can best be resumed by a quote from Pam's weekly journal:
"Trusting in the process is one of the tests of this time... focused on helping us heal a lack of faith. This week, the path to this healing leads us through the contentious realms of right vs. wrong... and meanders its way through thickets of worry and mental stress... It may take us some time to relax into Trusting the Process, but once we start walking on that path, we will begin to feel much more supported and our stress level can ease."
And with that, I leave you to scroll down below to the Editor's Choice articles which all somehow touch upon the above mentioned issues. (The articles this week also include a new article by yours truly, entitled "What If I Wasn't Afraid?"). And of course there are numerous additional articles for you to peruse as well (all listed below).
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, insight-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

EDITOR'S CHOICE ARTICLES
Written by Barbara Berger
I am quite sure we would all be much more careful of what we say if we were aware of the power of the spoken word. If we understood that every word we speak or write is an affirmation. To affirm literally means to make firm....

We cannot avoid emotional pain in life, and it’s through our experience of it that we come to understand what it means to be human. The whole of life is a series of beginnings and endings, a succession of mini-deaths, that we have to learn to take in our stride...

Sometimes the thoughts bothering us are not based on anything concrete, like health or career problems. But they’re in our mind anyway, and it’s unsettling us enough to make us feel agitated or irritated, and maybe even angered by it...

There are two voices in our minds. One belongs to the ego, the other to the Holy Spirit (you may call this peaceful inner messenger your Higher Power or Great Spirit or Universal Source or whatever name you choose). Both voices are always available to us, but one is very loud and generally gets our attention.

I quickly learned—at the age of four—that while the dead may be dead, they still have a lot to say, and it is my job to listen. As kids, we all learn to look both ways and never take candy from a stranger. I also learned to never argue with a dead person—they often know more than the living.

We are all one. When you are in Oneness your heart is totally open. Your Illumined Self gives freely, receives gratefully, is utterly compassionate and empathetic. You accept everyone exactly as they are with glowing love in your heart. You are the heartbeat of the universe.

How many times have we stopped ourselves from doing something we really really wanted to do, but were afraid to? If you think back, imagine where the road would have taken you had you had the courage to do what your heart wanted you to do, or not do... or to say, or not say.

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 daily. 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.
