Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we take a look at fear. We start off by seeking to understand dreams that may frighten us in "Frightening Dreams? How to Summarize the Message from Your Unconscious" . Another area where fear may pop up is in getting messages from "the beyond". Bill Phillips sheds light on this in "Do You Believe You Can Receive Messages From Heaven?" And Alan Cohen clarifies the "fear situation" in "Fear is the Liar -- Only Love Speaks Truth".
We also discover the connection between pain and fear in "The New Roots of Human Suffering and Pain". And of course fear shows up in many ways, some of them non-physical. Barry Vissell speaks of the fear of not-being loved, or of being a failure in "Working Hard or Workaholism? Are You A Work Addict?" And Sarah Varcas introduces us to an energy that will affect the next 7 years in her article entitled "Uranus, The Liberator from Past Mistakes: Thinking Outside a Broken Box".
And since our body is always sending us messages when our life or our body is out of balance, we bring you a practical tool to identify problematic areas in the body in order to address them before they create fear or become a cause of pain.
And of course we have numerous additional articles on a great variety of topics. Scroll down below to access all of them.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK
Written by Doris E. Cohen, PhD
Summarizing a message from the unconscious can be awkward at first, but be patient with yourself. Any seeming lack of clarity stems from the fact that these messages are given to you in a new language— the language of symbols, of the right brain, of the unconscious. When you try to understand these messages with your left brain, you tend to take them literally.

No matter what your beliefs, all you need to be able to recognize signs from heaven are an open mind and heart. Opening your mind to receiving signs simply means believing it can happen. If you have faith in God or in the next life, you are already ahead of the game.

In recent decades researchers have made great strides in understanding physical pain. It now seems that we experience much of the physical pain we do because our brains calculate that this sensation is important to our overall security and survival. Pain protects us from potential damage, or motivates us to attend to and repair damage already done.

It's important to learn to "read" the feet because there are several physical conditions that need special attention. The signs we observe are the body’s way of telling us something is out of balance. Just like pain, any disorder is a warning signal. Reflexology is not a tool for diagnosis, but with some observation skills, you can discover whether the body is struggling and if it is in need of some help.
