Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week's articles focus on "who you are". Barbara Savin shares "You Are Already A Healer: It Is Time To Reclaim Who You Are" while Marc Allen also reminds us of our innate power in "Karma and Politics: It's Time To Embrace Our Power". If these two statements bring up any doubts and fear, Barbara Berger writes about "How To Deal with Your Nervousness, Anxiety, and Fear" while Jill Lublin shares the importance of "Showing Compassion by Easing Someone's Tension".
And of course, things aren't always as they appear as you'll find out in "Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Initiation Into A New Spiritual Path" while Rabbi Daniel Cohen offers a path of reflection in "What Will They Say About You When You're Gone?"
And of course there are numerous additional articles this week. Scroll down below for information and links for all of them. And if you enjoy videos, click on the link below to have access to all the videos added this week, from "funnies" to "not so funny after all"...
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
