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.

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

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.

Written by Cheralyn Darcey
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.

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?
