InnerSelf Newsletter: January 14th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

For years, centuries, millennia, we humans have been giving our power away... to those in authority, to our family members, to our co-workers, to whoever we thought held "the answers". Yet, the solution to our difficulties, both personally and universally, is for us to become empowered from within. When we start to recognize the truths that live in our heart, we will find the solutions for everything that ails us.

This week we bring you articles to assist in your journey of inner discovery and self-empowerment. We look at "Turning Retirement into Renewal", "Minding Our Words and Saying What We Really Mean", "Breaking The Chains Of Unskillful Solutions That Were Handed Down To Us", and much more.

We are also entering an eclipse season which brings more empowering energy as shared by Sarah Varcas (Eclipse Seasons Are Times of Predictable and Unpredictable Great Power). And Pam Younghans, in her weekly astrological journal, highlights the powerful planetary energies of this week.

Please scroll down below for the new articles this week.

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

Minding Our Words and Saying What We Really Mean

Written by Ellen Tadd

Minding Our Words and Saying What We Really Mean

Telepathy is the language of communication in the spiritual realm. Imagine knowing the thoughts of all the people around you and having all your thoughts revealed without speaking. No one could manipulate or pretend to be other than who they are. All our motivations, fears, and loves would be exposed.

In The Face of Suffering, Invest Your Heart and Soul in the Peace Within

Written by Maresha Donna Ducharme

In The Face of Suffering, Invest Your Heart and Soul in the Peace Within

If you were asked to take a moment to observe your choices in life through witness consciousness, what would you find? Do you still, from time to time, use the places you know do not serve you? Do you find yourself looking outside for validation, seeking control over events, and needing to grab and hold?
