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.

It was one of those days when the world was supposed to come to an end.

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.

Several days ago we attended the Cultural Awareness Program at Mt. Madonna School where our grandson is in first grade. His grade of ten adorable students reenacted a Buddhist story from Cambodia.
