InnerSelf Newsletter: July 23rd, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

There are many expressions and idioms that describe our earthly experience and suggest how to best deal with it. One that comes to mind is "when life throws you a curve ball, hit it out of the park", another, "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade".  The point, of course, is that life will bring you challenges (and blessings) and you have a choice as to how you deal with them. That is the important part to remember... we always decide, consciously or not, how we respond to whatever challenge or situation we are faced with.

This week we look at various ways to deal with what comes our way. Nora Caron shares her experiences in "Life Is A Circle, Not A Straight Line" while Jude Bijou introduces us to "5 Steps To Deal With The Many Types of Loss". Denise Green, the author of "Work-Life Brilliance: Tools to Break Stress and Create the Life and Health You Crave" gives us "4 Achievable Steps for Turning Burnout into Brilliance" while Marja Norris, author of "The Unspoken Code: A Businesswoman's No-Nonsense Guide to Making It In the Corporate World" presents "5 Power Tips for Women in the Workplace" (by the way, these tips for women can also be useful for men).

Mark Thurston, author of "Discovering Your Soul's Purpose: Finding Your Path in Life, Work, and Personal Mission the Edgar Cayce Way", reveals Edgar Cayce's "Twelve Steps to Abundance and Prosperity". Steve Bhaerman, aka Swami Beyondananda, shares a "feel-good' and inspiring true story in "Organizing Human Chain Saves Drowning Family: Can A Similar Approach Save Our Drowning Human Family?".

Astrologically, we will soon be experiencing a black moon which is "a particularly powerful new moon which augurs a significant new phase. Each black moon cycle lasts until the next black moon, two and a half to three years later..." Read about this energy and what it means for you in Sarah Varcas' article: "How to Get the Best Out of a Black Moon!". Pam Younghans' weekly astrological journal sheds light on the energies specific to the current week.

And of course, we have numerous additional articles dealing with a wide range of topics such as: Farming The Suburbs...,  Defeating Tyranny..., Breast Cancer And Drinking..., Low Calorie Sweeteners..., Democracy in Chains..., Consumers That Go On Strike...,  Experiencing A Delusion?..., and much more. Scroll down below for all of the new articles for the week (a total of 28 new articles for your reading pleasure).       

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK

Life Is A Circle, Not A Straight Line

Written by Nora Caron

Life Is A Circle, Not A Straight Line

When we look at nature, we can clearly see how everything is related to cycles. We have lunar cycles, tide cycles, flower cycles, mating cycles, birthing cycles, and death cycles. Nature creates beautiful things and then these beautiful things fade and get replaced by other beautiful things.

5 Steps To Deal With The Many Types of Loss

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.

5 Steps To Deal With Loss

Somewhere, we got the idea that losses should be avoided at all costs because they are too painful. The result: no one taught us to effectively mourn when a significant ending occurs. As a result we often are stuck in a flat, gray place.

5 Power Tips for Women in the Workplace

Written by Marja Norris

5 Power Tips for Women in the Workplace

Organizing Human Chain Saves Drowning Family: Can A Similar Approach Save Our Drowning Human Family?

Written by Steve Bhaerman

Organizing Human Chain Saves Drowning Family: Can A Similar Approach Save Our Drowning Human Family?

We always feel heartened by tales of heroism, and we celebrate the individual hero or "shero".  It's even more heartening when the "hero" is a self-organizing, spontaneous group of people who see what needs to be done, and then do it.
