InnerSelf Newsletter: March 31st, 2019

InnerSelf Newsletter: March 31st, 2019

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Energy! It can seem like it's the elusive ingredient in our lives at times. We might find ourselves saying we need more energy! The good news is that we humans are powered by renewable energy. Every day we wake up and we have a new blank slate, a new 24-hours, and a new refreshed tank of energy. Though sometimes, we may feel like our tank is not being refilled and is almost dry.

This week our authors help us look at energy... what it is, how to connect with it, and what it really all about... Alan Cohen leads the way with "Where To Get More Love and Healing Energy" and Nancy Windheart continues with "Remain Open To Miracles Without Attachment To How They Manifest" for after all miracles are simply manifested energy.

Then, Will Wilkenson continues by looking at how we use our energy and asks "What Is A Visionary Activist? Can You Be One?" Will defines a visionary activist as someone who "is committed to focusing their energy towards positive change in world". Alan Seale delves into the world of quantum physics with "How the World Works—Three Basic Energy Principles".

Eileen Workman helps us reflect on how we use our daly quota in "Walk With Joy: Discover The Limitless Nature Of Who You Truly Are" and Pierre Pradervand rounds it all up with a blessing in "An Infinitely Friendly Universe: The Invisible Divine Order Behind Everything"

I mentioned last week that we were working on upgrading the website. This has been a work in progress for several months, and we are now approaching the culmination of all those hours of dedicated work. So I reiterate my invitation for you to let us know if there are problems on the website. If you discover errors, broken links, we invite you to contact us either by replying to this email or via the Contact Us form on the website (accessible from the Home Page and the This & That menu). Your help is appreciated. If you report an error, please describe the error and provide the link of the page you were on when it occurred. The more info the better, so we can identify the problem and fix it. Thank you.

Please scroll down for the featured articles in this new issue of InnerSelf, and also the recap of all the articles that were added to the website during the week. You might notice that we have introduced more videos, among them recipes.

The weekly newsletter provides you an easy place to find the new articles that were added throughout the week, since the home page is changing several times during the week because we are adding a lot more articles and videos each day... so they scroll off the page during the week. The newsletter gives you the whole gamut.

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

Where To Get More Love and Healing Energy

Written by Alan Cohen

Where To Get More Love and Healing Energy

Many spiritual paths and religions teach you to draw energy from your mentor, guru, or savior. If you absorb positive healing energy, you will be healed. Yet eventually you must consider whether or not the healing energy is coming from outside you or from within you.

How the World Works—Three Basic Energy Principles

Written by Alan Seale

How the World Works—Three Basic Energy Principles

Everything is energy. Energy in its pure form is neutral. It’s not good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative. What gives energy a particular quality is how we engage with it and how we use it.

Walk With Joy: Discover The Limitless Nature Of Who You Truly Are

With this body, I’ve discovered I’m able to deliver into this world a virtually infinite spectrum of creative energy – from love, joy, creativity, beauty, sensuality, passion, intimacy; to sorrow, fear, pain, horror, despair and suffering. The choice of what to deliver is ever mine.
