InnerSelf Newsletter: July 9th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

When life seems to be taking us on a roller-coaster ride, we can remember that the way to keep from "losing it" is to retain our center. This is done by choosing to "Become Deeply Rooted In A Deep Trust of Life" as well as remembering that "The Answers Lie Within: Listen To Your Gut". And if you've become confused and dizzy from all the ups and downs going on around you, perhaps you will benefit from the tool presented by Kira Klenke in "The Solution Is Just A Stone's Throw Away".

We also benefit from focusing on "A New Common Sense, A New Common Cause" and remembering that we're not alone on this journey. Reading "Can Your Mind Help You Find Peace?" by Leah Guy may help you become grounded and at peace. Choosing your environment and the colors you surround yourself with can boost your energy and vitality. Read Barbara Jaffe's experience in "When Colors Hold Emotional Ties and Provoke Visceral Reactions".

And of course, as usual, we have more articles focusing on a wide range of topics, such as healing of trauma, seed saving, smart phones, solar energy, social change, dementia, Tourette syndrome, olive oil, and even Paddington Bear (and more). Scroll down below for the links to all of this week's new articles.        

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK

Become Deeply Rooted In A Deep Trust of Life

Written by Eileen Workman

Become Deeply Rooted In A Deep Trust of Life

I believe that the invitation to truly live requires us to be rooted in a deep trust of life. This rooting is grounded in openness, watered with courage, fertilized by compassion, expressed with kindness, blossoms through patience, and–when fully mature—embodies peace.

When Colors Hold Emotional Ties and Provoke Visceral Reactions

Written by Barbara Jaffe, Ed.D.

When Colors Hold Emotional Ties and Provoke Visceral Reactions

For me, red is passion, energy, fun, excitement. My red blazer immediately infuses me with inner warmth and joy. “That’s a good color on you.” This accurate remark emphasizes the vitality behind the color energizing my very being.

A New Common Sense, A New Common Cause

Written by Steve Bhaerman

 Independents Day Message: A New Common Sense, A New Common Cause

I now call the 4th of July "Independents Day" as I've come to realize that the only way we the people can take our country back -- and forward -- is by declaring our independence from the two political parties, the two-party duopoly, and the two competing narratives that keep us divided ... and conquered.

The Solution Is Just A Stone's Throw Away

Written by Kira Klenke.

The Solution is Just a Stone's Throw Away

Some life situations generate feelings of helplessness or hopelessness and intellectual reasoning is not sufficient for figuring out what to do or what to change. Our patterns of behavior, thoughts and habits often unconsciously block new ideas and attitudes for fear of the unknown. In this case, other approaches are required.

Can Your Mind Help You Find Peace?

Written by Leah Guy

Can Your Mind Help You Find Peace?

We all desire peace, but most people look for it in the wrong place. We often think of the saying “peace of mind,” but we can’t rely on the mind to give us the peace that is desired from our Souls. Peace is not found in your mind. The mind begs for our attention, but there is no stability or peace if we react to every thought from the mind.

The Answers Lie Within: Listen To Your Gut

Written by Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

The Answers Lie Within: Listen To Your Gut

The body has its own language that is older and more primal than most of us realize. Our bodies speak to us with sen­sations, images, emotions, and an inner knowing that is beyond words. Have you ever had a niggling doubt that nags you for days...

Why The Summer Of Love Was More Than Hippies And LSD

Written by Nicholas Campion, University of Wales Trinity Saint David | Print | Email

Why The Summer Of Love Was More Than Hippies And LSD

Something remarkable happened to the youth of the Western world 50 years ago. In the summer of 1967 a huge number of American teenagers – some estimate between 100,000 and 200,000 – escaped what they saw as their suburban prisons and made for the city district of Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco.
