Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
It is time for us to recognize the truth: We are all connected. Indigenous people knew that before "white man" ever came to the Americas. (The Great Law of Peace and the Council of the Clan Mothers)
This week we look at many of the things that connect us. (Are We Really All That Different From Each Other?) By putting certain attitudes and behaviors in practice, we act on that connectedness. (Perceiving the Truth through Empathy, Not Prejudice)
As we nurture our sense of empathy and use our intuition, we continue the inner search for peace and happiness. (Using Your Intuition Is Essential for Happiness) We then connect with the wisdom of those around us. (Important Message from Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe) And we also get in touch with our own innate wisdom. (The Importance of Your Daydreams and Mind Wanderings)

The Iroquois tell of a Peacemaker prophet who walked the lands many years ago trying to convince the warring nations to give up their blood feud ways. The first Clan Mother convinced her people to listen to the prophetic words, and they established the Great Law of Peace.

As a result of years spent trying to teach people to rewrite their prejudicial stories about themselves and others, I am keenly aware of how prejudice can spread. It can develop into embedded beliefs and cause inordinate amounts of stress.

I work hard to refrain from judging other people, even when they are making it very, very hard to not judge them. I have come to realize that judgment is not really my job.

Our attention is affected by the ultradian rhythm that alters our attention span every 90 to 120 minutes throughout the day. Mind Wandering naturally occurs at the end of this cycle, as well as after any intense cognitive task. Mind Wandering is our mind’s way of forcing us to give it a rest.

Written by Jodi Hershey.
We are in uncharted territory. There is nothing from past time periods relevant to what is going on today. We are evolving as a species and it behooves us to open our minds, look at life from a different perspective, and do this by operating from our intuition.

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.
