Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
Life on earth is quite a dichotomy. We are in control of our life, yet we are not. We enjoy our existence, yet we don't. It's as if we are continually wavering between two extremes, two polarities, in somewhat of a free-fall. This week we look at the balancing act between wanting to be "all-in" and "all-out" sometimes all at once. Perhaps we can start by focusing on "Learning to Embrace the Experience of Constant Change".
Of course, the one area of our life where we may be feeling this tug-of-war is in our work and career. The article "How Your Business Can Make You Successful AND Make The World A Better Place" may be able to help you find your way... as well as "Striking Balance as a Highly Sensitive Person: The Most And Least Ideal Careers".
Then we have health and energy levels which may also find us on the seesaw. If you find you lack the energy to accomplish your goals, Peter and Brianna Borten present you with "Key Ways To Build Energy To Actualize Your Life". And if your weight is affecting your well-being, here are "5 Ways That Hypnosis Notably Improves Weight Loss".
We each have our own experiences to go through. Ransom Stephens, author of "The Left Brain Speaks, The Right Brain Laughs" shares "Is One Person's Reality Anything Like Anyone Else's Reality?" while Barry Eaton, author of "The Joy of Living" shares his personal story in "My Experience With Cancer and Postponing My Afterlife".
We have many additional articles focusing on topics ranging from learning disabilities, self-driving cars, kindergarten, bees, dementia, Game of Thrones, and much more. And of course, our weekly astrological journal is here to help guide us through the coming week. Scroll down below to find all of the aforementioned articles, and many more.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

The funny thing about reality is that you can only get so close to it. Our senses compose an interface between our brains and the universe, a reality interface. Everything we experience and everything we are and ever will be are ultimately derived from sensory input.

If you have trouble losing excess weight, it's likely that your body and mind are conspiring to keep that extra weight on you. When you're bored or sad or upset, the brain's natural tendency is to make the body do something to feel better, and food provides the immediate gratification.
