Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
The new articles' theme this week could be translated into these three words: Everything is important. From the ants on the wall, to the pain that we feel, to the ugliness we perceive in ourselves or others. Everything is in our lives with a message for the present, and to shine a light towards our future.
Please scroll down to the new articles of the week... from the Editor's Choices, to the 46 additional articles on various topics.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

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.
