InnerSelf welcomes your inner self...
You may be familiar with the expression that says you can't give from an empty basket. This, of course, refers to taking care of yourself before you can give of yourself to others. You may have found yourself feeling drained at times due to not taking care of yourself. This week we bring you articles to help you replenish your energy and "refill your basket".
One of the difficulties in knowing what is the "right" action to take for our own well-being is knowing which "voice" we are hearing: the ego's or Spirit. Eileen Workman writes about "How To Tell The Difference Between The Will Of Ego and The Will Of Spirit".
Lisa K., author of Intuition on Demand, writes about "Why Energetic Health Is Important to Intuition" and A.J. Earley shares important information about "How Fasting Can Benefit Mindfulness, Meditation, and Your Overall Health".
Nora Caron gives great pointers on "Keeping Your Yin Alive in a Yang Society" while Barbara Berger shares another aspect of taking care of yourself in "Learning To Communicate Honestly With Others". Thomas Sterner introduces us to "And Then What? A Mantra for Inner Peace".
Then we bring you numerous articles on a variety of topics such as treating breast cancer, the "dangers" of saving energy at home, the costs of moral outrage, beating jet lag or shift work, electric cars, brain damage from alcohol, and much more.
Scroll down below for the short intros and links to the above articles and more...
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

Written by Eileen Workman
When Spirit notices something about your behavior that needs to evolve, it in-spires you to make a change for the better. All changes that are being willed by life-centered Spirit—as opposed to changes being willed by your self-centered ego—are born with ease and are cultivated with grace.

I’d like to share a very useful tool for bringing your mind back to the present moment when it is trying to cling to something that hasn’t happened yet. It realigns your perspective of whatever is pulling you into the future and reengages you with the now.

There is a very tight connection between our energetic body and our physical body. When our energetic body is not healthy, we can be physically unhealthy. Our energetic system processes energy flowing through and uses the information contained in it.
