Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
As life continues to present us with challenges and blessings (sometimes they are one and the same), we benefit from the energy and tools at our fingertips or inside our being. One source of energy lies in our repressed emotions (How To Transform Old Feelings Into A Gift) while a source of guidance comes from our own being (How To Take Your Intuition Home With You) and our spirit (A Day in the Life with Your Spirit Guides).
We bring you a new article from Barry Vissell (an excerpt from Joyce and Barry's new book, To Really Love A Woman), as well as a new article from Alan Cohen. And of course, we have numerous additional articles on a variety of topics for your enjoyment... Scroll down below for the links to all of them...
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

A question I often hear my students ask is, “How do I stay tuned into my intuition and receive messages from my inner divine guidance?” They do very well in class and in the online sessions but when they go off on their own, life takes over and they feel disconnected.

Approach these conversations exactly the way you would if there were another being sitting next to you, because there is.

Savior archetypal figures reflect a common longing for a new Divine Human. Rather than being copycat myths, they represent allegories of humanity’s universal mystical potential for divine incarnation and the restoration of a sacred universe.
