InnerSelf Newsletter: August 13th, 2017

InnerSelf Newsletter: August 13th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week, as with every week, we look at different aspects of our life: the blessings as well as the challenges, and the things we can do to make our life more balanced. Many people feel like they are alone in this journey, yet we are never really alone. When we tune in to the world around us we discover that we are surrounded by love and consciousness. Nancy Windheart shares her experience with whales in "Being and Communicating with The Elders of the Seas". And at the other end of the spectrum, Charles Eisenstein writes about "The Age of We Need Each Other".

In between all of that we deal with our "stuff": our grief ("The Loss, Longing and Love of Reappearing Grief") and our fear ("Let's Talk About Fear: Illuminating the Shadow"). John Murphy assists us through the process with "4 Steps To Manifest Fearlessness And Peak Productivity In Your Work And Relationships".

And of course, we have numerous additional articles dealing with a variety of topics such as: children and lies, genetic home testing, walking as exercise, stress, the opioid epidemic, and much more. Scroll down below for all of the new articles, as well as Pam's Astrological Journal for the week.

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK

Being and Communicating with The Elders of the Seas

Written by Nancy Windheart

08 11 elders of the sea

From the first day of our trip, we were met by the whales. Although I had been in deep communication with the whales and had received instructions for the structure and practices for the trip in the year prior our journey,  I was still blown away by the magnitude of what we experienced.

The Loss, Longing and Love of Reappearing Grief

Written by Barbara Jaffe, Ed.D.

The Loss, Longing and Love of Reappearing Grief

Grief is like this. I was only half-listening to a song on the radio, yet a wave of sadness overcame me for the loss of my father. The song had nothing to do with my dad nor my mood, as I was content and even joyful before the song.

Let's Talk About Fear: Illuminating the Shadow
