Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

As I began working on this week's articles, I thought the theme was communication and relationships. But as the articles came together, I saw that the theme was actually "trusting through fear". Which of course does apply to communication and relationships, and so much more.

Sarah Varcas speaks of the energies this July as "Truth Found in Darkness". Maresha Donna Ducharme delves into "Trusting Love" and Alan Cohen shares about taking risks in becoming "...Authentic Communicators".

When in relationship, a deep fear may be about breaking up and Barry Vissell addresses this in "Separation as a Powerful Relationship Tool". Susan Ann Darley offers us "8 Steps for Powerful Connection and Engagement".

And of course, we bring you numerous additional articles by a wide range of authors on a wide range of topics. Scroll down below for all of the new articles this week, including Pam Younghans' Astrological Journal for the Week.

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK


July 2018: Truth Found in Darkness

Written by Sarah Varcas

July 2018: Truth Found in Darkness

July is a month of deep inner movement which, like a quake far below the earth’s crust, may well shake foundations, but is less likely to bring the structures of our lives crashing down. With up to six retrogrades throughout the month, two eclipses (one also a Supermoon) and Mars still on the South Node, our internal world is in the spotlight while the external one may disappoint.

Trusting Love: Living An Ordinary Life In An Extraordinary Way

Written by Maresha Donna Ducharme

Trusting Love: Living An Ordinary Life In An Extraordinary Way

Trusting love is a radical severance from one’s preferences, addictions, and obsessions. It is a persevering willingness to enter and re-enter the unknown. It is a commitment to listening to the voice of one’s Soul anew each day.

Business for Lovers and Authentic Communicators

Written by Alan Cohen

Business for Lovers and Authentic Communicators
