 InnerSelf Newsletter: March 18th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” (This quote is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, author of Hermetic Corpus, and was found inside his tomb.)

The subject of this quote is the theme of this week's edition of InnerSelf. What is within us affects the outside, and what is outside affects the inside.

This includes "non-tangible" or "non-touchable" things such as the sound of humming (Hum Your Way to Health and Well-Being), the language of flowers (Healing and Communicating Using The Language of Flowers), the energy of tattoos (Tattoos Through The Lens Of Consciousness), our inner beings (yes, plural) (How To Strengthen Your Inner Nurturer Voice), our energetic connection with others (Practicing The Art Of High-Quality Connections), and our habits (We Are Not The Helpless Slaves Of Our Habits). None of these are "physical things" per se, but their energy is powerful and affects our lives not only energetically, but physically as well.

Scroll down below for the titles and links to these articles and many more...

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

Tattoos Through The Lens Of Consciousness

Written by Lisa Barretta

Tattoos Through The Lens Of Consciousness

Believe it or not, your tattoo, and what it represents, is cap­tured in your consciousness. It is immortally etched into your cel­lular memory and will either enhance or lower your vibration, based on the intention and emotions imbued at its creation.

Healing and Communicating Using The Language of Flowers

Written by Cheralyn Darcey

Healing and Communicating Using The Language of Flowers

Flowers and plants describe the attributes that they hold through their form, function and behaviour. The way they grow and attract pollinators; the way they look, smell, taste, feel and even sound, are all indications of this. From closely observing these factors, we have an opening into the world of the language of plants.

We Are Not The Helpless Slaves Of Our Habits

Written by Kavitha Chinnaiyan, MD

We Are Not The Helpless Slaves Of Our Habits

Do you ever wonder why you do things specifically the way you do? Whether I’m reading a patient’s echocardiogram or loading the dishwasher, I have “a way” to do it, which is different from someone else’s “way.” How does this happen?

Hum Your Way to Health and Well-Being

Written by Jonathan Goldman and Andi Goldman

Hum Your Way to Health and Well-Being
