InnerSelf Newsletter: July 30th, 2017

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.

Is One Person's Reality Anything Like Anyone Else's Reality?

Written by Ransom Stephens, Ph.D.

Is One Person's Reality Anything Like Anyone Else's Reality?The funny thing about reality is that you can only get so close to it.
