Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
We constantly choose whether we sleep-walk through our life (successfully or not), or whether we traverse our life's journey with consciousness, making choices based on our inner truth and awareness. This week we discover "How To Use The Process of Awakening to Avoid Suffering and Illness", and "The Power of our Emotions and What They Are Trying To Tell Us". We revisit "Jimmy Carter's Truth Telling Sermon To Americans". I encourage you to listen to the youtube video of Jimmy Carter's speech... It is extremely appropriate for this day and age.
As we focus on healing ourselves and our world, we can use "The Healing Power of the Hum of the Humming Bees" and "The Modern Use of Phototherapy and The Future of Light Medicine". And if you feel that life has been handing you lemons or challenges galore, you will gain some insights into your experience by reading "Who Is Saturn? What Does Saturn Symbolize?".
And of course, we have numerous additional articles for you this week. Scroll down below for the links to all of this week's new articles, and of course, to Pam's weekly astrological journal.
Wishing you "in-joy-able" and "in-sight-full" reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

Difficult experiences cause us to reflect about what is happening and no doubt lead to us making the changes necessary to help us grow—provided we are ready to listen to the underlying message. Otherwise we keep repeating the same old patterns until we finally understand what our experiences are trying to tell us and change our behavior.

We are very limited by what we can consciously be aware of, so to fix that our brain gave us emotions and feelings. Emotions are the meaning applied by our subconscious mind to any situation. We become aware of the meaning when we feel it in our body as a sensation - a feeling.

Although symbolism and meaning will sometimes overlap from planet to planet, each planet has its own distinct vocabulary and flavor. Saturn is no different. If I had to pick a flavor, I would say Saturn is sour, not sweet. Cold, not hot. Matter-of-fact, not passionate.
