Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
Sometimes we may feel as if we are walking through a dark tunnel not knowing what is ahead. And we wonder when we will finally reach a place, both physically, emotionally, and mentally, where we will feel good about our life. Sometimes the confusion is about the world around us, and at other times our inner being is where we need clarity.
This week we start off by learning how to deal healthily with our anger. And yes, we all have anger, in whichever of its many forms. Jude Bijou presents guidelines on how to deal with our anger constructively in "Anger Begets Destructive Thoughts, Words, and Actions." Then Sarah Varcas focuses on the current planetary energies in "Razor-Sharp Truth and Compassionate Grace" and writes "The second half of October is characterised by dynamic, forthright energy which requires careful handling. As always, it’s our choice how we use it."
Speaking of the results of anger and the choices we have to make, Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda) shares his perspective as a "tie-dyed-in-the-wool Berniecrat" in "How We Can Choose the Greater Good on Election Day". Stephan A. Schwartz reveals the data behind "Red Social Values vs. Blue: Can We Know What Works?" which also sheds light on the importance of the upcoming US election.
Noelle Sterne encourages us to pay attention to the words we use in "How to Create Better Blueprints for Your Present and Future". And last, but not least, Tara-jenelle Walsch helps us in "Getting Comfortable in Your Own Skin". All of these articles will help you walk through the darkness around you and emerge into a lighter and more joyful day.
And of course, we have numerous additional articles covering a variety of topics, from dementia, lying, climate, mind-reading (by apes), happiness, and much much more. Scroll below for the list and links.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

EDITOR'S CHOICE ARTICLES
Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.
Anger fuels our dark side. We give into the impulse to strike out justifying our mean words and destructive actions by unspoken thoughts such "You hurt me and so I'm going to hurt you back." We escalate, tell ourselves "they deserve it" and erroneously think...

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.

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.
