Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
At times in our life we may have the tendency to be like the snail and hide in our shell and move forward very very slowly. However, while we may feel safe doing so, we also are stopping ourselves from stepping forth and experiencing all the beauty and love that life has to offer.
This week we share with you articles dealing with relationships that went "bad" (Will I Ever Love Again?) and we present different ways of reacting to life's events (Don’t Cry Because It’s Over. Smile Because It Happened) (Step Aside and Experience a Miracle in the Making). We also look at ways to free ourselves from energies that do not serve our health and well-being (Protecting Your Energy and Your Aura).
Of course our attitude is always at the foremost of how we'll experience life, and whether we see ourselves as "losers" or powerful beings (We Are Not Beggars! We Are Adventurers). Fortunately, our inner guidance is always at hand to help us through any challenges or blind spots (Your Inner Guidance System Always Moves You Toward Fulfillment and Success). We can create a better present and a better future for ourselves and the planet by "Engaging the Soul and Awakening the Leader Within".
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, loving and "wide-awake" week.

A strong mind can cope with a weak body, while even a strong body is no use if you have a weak mind. Remember that your aura is simply an extension of you. When strong, it acts as a protective shield. When fragile or damaged, it can leave you drained, unwell, and feeling disconnected from yourself.

People in the throes of a breakup universally express the fear that they will never love again. I was afraid of this myself for a few months after losing my life partner. In the midst of the despair and hopelessness, we believe that losing our loved one means losing the possibility for love and connection forever.

"Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened." Those nine words by Ted Geisel (Dr.Seuss), one of our country’s favorite storytellers, contain so much wisdom. They apply to many different aspects of life, but I would like to focus on the area of relationships.

I began the practice of “stepping aside” only after years of stepping into business that was clearly not my own. I had mistakenly assumed that helping others make their decisions was an important calling. It showed them I cared. It was my way of remaining important to them. Or so I thought . . .

We've all heard of ask and you shall receive and I've been an avid proponent of that method myself. However, there is asking and there is expecting. Now on the surface, those seem to go hand in hand, yet they don't...

The majority of people are aching to make a commitment in their lives—to others, to a goal, to the world—if only they could find the spark that would set them into action. The missing links are the belief in oneself and the inspiration from others. Few of us believe that we are...

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.
