InnerSelf Newsletter: May 28th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Who we are is at the root of what brings us happiness. This week, we delve into who we are, and how to be more of who that truly is. We start with Brianna and Peter Borten, authors of The Well Life, "Identifying Your Gifts and Incorporating Them Into Your Life". Leah Guy, author of The Fearless Path, invites you to reflect on "How To Be Who You Are By Expressing Your Truth".

If "being who you are" dredges up waves of doubt and self-criticism, Jude Bijou offers "Two Powerful Ways to Transform Self-Criticism". Your dreams and premonitions offer another tool to creating a better life, as shared by Nora Caron in "Here's What To Do If You Have Premonitions In Your Dreams".

Scroll down below for these and more articles (a total of 31 new articles this week) as well as this week's astrological journal.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Two Powerful Ways to Transform Self-Criticism

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.

Two Powerful Ways to Transform Self-Criticism

Being too self-critical is rampant in our society. We beat ourselves up over real and imagined imperfections. Whenever we criticize ourselves, we compound the issue. We turn one problem into two -- there's the social blunder, a poor financial decision or disapproving glance in the mirror -- and the demeaning self-loathing that follows.
