Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we look at the power of the heart, the power of love, whether it comes in human form or animal form or even scientific form. Love is all there is. Anything else is simply the absence of love. Our articles this week help us recenter in the power of the heart, and the power of love.
Scroll down below for the featured articles of the week, as well as for the numerous articles on a variety of topics.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Many have experienced the depth of feeling that can develop between us and our four-legged best friends. What makes my story unique is that my search for a lasting and meaningful connection led me down a path that crossed over the boundaries of reason and concrete reality into the realm of the invisible. My dog Brio inspired me--a born skeptic--to investigate the paranormal.

The animals and the natural world are relaying messages to guide and support humanity during this time of great change on the planet. The four-leggeds, winged ones, creepy crawlers, and more are coming to assist in this evolution of consciousness. As we release the self-imposed barriers between us and them, we are able to transcend the illusionary veil between us and hear their language. We are given the gift of their wisdom when we connect in love and respect and cross through the barriers that separate us.

Creator stood in front of Bear and said, “I am happy you have found the answer to the darkness. I have always been with you.

This light, combined with your voice, is like a tapestry woven together as a protection from all evil.”
