InnerSelf Newsletter: September 2nd

InnerSelf Newsletter: September 2nd, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we focus on relationships... with ourselves, with others, and with the world... and how we can heal and improve our connection with all of those.

We start with an author who exudes love and inner peace, Pierre Pradervand. He shares his method of healing himself and the world in "Blessing: A Way of Sending Love, Peace, Healing and Goodness to the World". We continue the journey with Barry Vissell who presents "The Two Important Components of a Successful Relationship". While Barry speaks of romantic or married couples, all these teachings apply to relationships in general.

Michael Gelb, author of "The Art of Connection", tells us that creating better connections requires "Vulnerability: Being Open, Accessible, Sensitive and Dropping the Armor". Charlie Bloom invites us into his personal story and marriage in "The Winds of Grace Can Sometimes Feel Like A Curse". And we round it up with a heart chakra meditation in "The Heart Chakra: Where Matter and Spirit Meet".

And of course, we have numerous additional articles on a variety of topics such as: weight loss, Alzheimer's, printable solar panel (yes, you read that right: printable). We read about teenagers and reading, anorexia, love at first sight, mental health, chronic pain, climate anxiety, memory loss, hurricanes, stereotypes, green energy, etc. etc. Scroll down below for the entire list of new articles this week.

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK


Blessing: A Way of Sending Love, Peace, Healing and Goodness to the World

Written by Pierre Pradervand

Blessing: A Way of Sending Love, Peace, Healing and Goodness to the World

Blessing is a way of sending unconditional love, peace, healing, goodness to a person or a situation, or simply seeing them bathed in that love. Blessing isn’t associated with any religious denominations. It can be practiced by anyone, and I have an atheist friend who purchased my first edition of The Gentle Art of Blessing, and even gave copies away!

The Two Important Components of a Successful Relationship

Written by Barry Vissell

The Two Parts of a Successful Relationship

A successful relationship has two very important components: learning to love yourself first, and then learning to love another person. Too many people ignore the first part, then wonder why it’s so hard to love another. It’s like expecting to water a plant with an empty water pitcher. Or trying to put on your child’s oxygen mask when the airplane cabin pressure drops, but passing out from lack of oxygen before you can get it on.

Vulnerability: Being Open, Accessible, Sensitive and Dropping the Armor

Written by Michael J. Gelb

Vulnerability: Being Open, Accessible, and Sensitive and Dropping the Armor

Vulnerability isn’t timidity or weakness. Rather, it’s an acknowledgment that we are sensitive, alive, and affected emotionally by our interactions and experiences. When we are open and accessible, we are able to connect with ourselves, and we make it much easier for others to connect with us.

The Winds of Grace Can Sometimes Feel Like A Curse

Written by Linda & Charlie Bloom

The Winds of Grace Can Sometimes Feel Like A Curse

It’s been said that whatever brings us to face the essential truth of our lives may be called “grace.” Frequently, grace assumes a form that feels more like a curse than a blessing. It can be a life-threatening illness, the loss of a family member, being fired from a job, the kids leaving home (or coming back), divorce, a serious accident, or any number of possible crises that can be encountered in one’s life.

The Heart Chakra: Where Matter and Spirit Meet

Written by Michelle S. Fondin

The Heart Chakra Encompasses Lungs, Arms, Hands, Circulatory and Lymphatic Systems

The heart chakra is where matter and spirit meet. It marks the halfway point, with three chakras below and three above. This is a very important chakra indeed, as it’s our center of love and connection. Here you move into a greater awareness and love flows from you. You are peaceful, joyful, and compassionate. Your actions are no longer self-serving but are motivated by helping others overcome suffering.
