Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
While we may all have hopes and dreams for our future, the basis for that future lies in our actions today, right now, in this moment. In order to assist with that daily journey, this week we look at "How To Completely Transform The Experience Of Going Through Your Day". Part of doing that starts with such things as "Mindfulness at the Kitchen Sink" and remembering to "Live Like You Have an Expiration Date"... because after all we all do have one.
To make our daily life more easeful and joyful, the process of "Releasing Our Pain and Cleansing Our Emotional Wounds" will be a helpful one. We can also gain some helpful insights in this article: "How To Heal Our DNA with the Assistance of Our Innate Self".
These are just a few of our 34 articles this week, plus of course Pam Younghan's weekly astrological journal. Scroll down below for the links to all the articles.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

Everything in life comes from practice. No matter how small or inconsequential we think it is, everything we do, from brushing our teeth to getting through a scary job interview, comes from practice, the deliberate repetition of an action with an awareness of what we want to achieve.

Written by Barbara Y. Martin and Dimitri Moraitis
Every culture has had its own concept of evil or the devil. In Genesis, there is the famous temptation of Adam and Eve by evil—personified by the snake. While the Hebrew Bible mentions Satan by name only in the book of Job, the idea of evil permeates Jewish mystical and religious thought.

Innate is responsible for the seemingly mysterious and miraculous healings: accelerated recoveries, spontaneous remissions, and unexplained disappearances of incurable diseases. There is no mystery after all when the Innate is involved and can bridge the gap between quantum intelligent information and our bodies. It is not a force outside ourselves--it is something within all of us.

If it were your last days on earth, what would you do? Would it change how you live today? Maybe you would wake up earlier and be a bit more cheerful. You might even stay up later. You would definitely tell your family and friends how much you love them.
