InnerSelf Newsletter: June 24th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we reflect on the path to happiness. This path of the heart (What Are The Benefits of Walking the Heart Path?) includes self-validation and self-compassion (Practicing Self-Validation Is An Act Of Compassion), generating happiness (How to Experience More Happiness and Generate More Joy, Love, and Peace), and the willingness to heal and to be happy (Five Steps to the Healing Process). You might say, but of course I'm willing to be happy, however reading "A Love Letter to You from Your Animal Companion" may show you a different perspective.

These featured articles, as well as all the other articles this week, are intended to bring you information and understanding. Scroll down for information on each article and the links to read them.

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

Practicing Self-Validation Is An Act Of Compassion

Written by Julie M. Simon

Practicing Self-Validation Is An Act Of Compassion

When you’re experiencing recurring unpleasant feelings or familiar unmet needs and self-defeating thoughts, are you generally kind and gen­tle with yourself? Do you unconditionally accept all of your emotions, sensations, needs, and thoughts? Do you give yourself the empathy, com­passion, warmth, and understanding you’d offer a close friend or family member?

How to Experience More Happiness and Generate More Joy, Love, and Peace

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.

How to Experience More Happiness and Generate More Joy, Love, and Peace

Happiness is the current wave. It’s in book names, article titles, Coke ads, McDonald’s Happy Meals, and, you name it. I think happiness is a general word that encompasses the pure physical body sensations of the emotions of joy, love, and peace.

What Are The Benefits of Walking the Heart Path?

Written by Jeff D. Nixa

What Are The Benefits of Walking the Heart Path?

The heart is a key concept in shamanism, a specialized term that refers to one’s deep source of aliveness, spiritual center, soul, or core. The word core itself comes from the French word coeur, meaning “heart.” It is understood to mean our individual, localized expression of the Great Spirit, God, or Universal Consciousness. It is our individual wave moving upon the greater sea of spirit.

Five Steps to the Healing Process

Written by Corinne Zupko

Five Steps to the Healing Process

Although the healing pro­cess can really occur in three simple steps — find your willingness to see differently, give your willingness to your Inner Therapist, and trust that it is done — I find that I often need more ways to separate myself from the ego because it hangs on so tightly. Or, perhaps, because hang on to it  so tightly.

A Love Letter to You from Your Animal Companion

Written by Tammy Billups

A Love Letter to You from Your Animal Companion

Over the years, I’ve seen and felt consistent messages flow from the animals I’ve loved and the thousands of animals I’ve been honored to work with that, when embraced by their humans as truth, have made a positive, life-changing difference in both of their lives.
