InnerSelf Newsletter: April 8th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at "hidden messages"... These are the messages from our unconscious beliefs, from our inner children, from our body, from our environment, and from our heart... And we discover that these messages are not really hidden as much as unheard, or not paid attention to. Yet the messages (and their blessings) are present for all of us at all times...

Scroll down below for the featured articles this week, and for all the new articles as well.

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

Things - and Beliefs - Hiding in Plain Sight

Written by Erika Flint

Things - and Beliefs - Hiding in Plain Sight

As the subconscious mind takes in information from the outside world, things that tend to consistently happen in a particular way begin to form into beliefs. Then these beliefs can become “truths” to us - something we know to be true and don’t question anymore. In many cases these “truths” can be helpful...

Working with Your Inner Children

Written by Mary Mueller Shutan

Working with Your Inner Children

We like to think of ourselves as one congruent identity, one Self. Whether we are a forty-five-year-old businessman, a twenty-year-old college student or a seventy-year-old retiree, what we think of ourselves is based on what we are currently doing and who we believe ourselves to be.

Each Part of the Body Has A Symbolic Message System

Written by Michel Odoul

Each Part of the Body Has A Symbolic Message System

After many years of practicing energy techniques, specifically shiatsu, I have been able to realize to what extent, for each one of us, our body speaks to us (shouting even) about what we are really experiencing in the depths of ourself. Our deepest reality, our nonconscious, our mind, our soul -- whatever your preferred term is -- speaks to us constantly, telling us what isn't working.
