InnerSelf Newsletter: April 7th, 2019

InnerSelf Newsletter: April 7th, 2019

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

While we know that it is important in life to deal with "what is", we also need to focus on "what is to be" or what we wish the future to be. This week we look at both. We bring you an "Exercise: Sitting with the Shadow" and Emma Mardlin encourages us to "Become A Master Reframer – Seeing Negative Stuff Differently".

We are entering "A New Age of Enlightenment: Spiritual Warriors Motivated By Love" and Joyce Vissell reminds us that "What Your Attention Is Upon, You Become". Marc Lesser offers us "The Key For A More Peaceful World: Seeing Similarities, Offering Kindness".

This weekly newsletter provides you an easy place to find the new articles that were added to the InnerSelf website throughout the week, since the home page is changing rapidly during the week because we are adding articles and videos each day... so they scroll off the page during the week. The newsletter gives you the whole gamut, or a snap-shot of the whole week. 

For those of you who are used to having the "early bird" version online on Saturday morning, due to the new format, we are still working out how to make that accessible.

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.

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK


A New Age of Enlightenment: Spiritual Warriors Motivated By Love

Written by Carley Mattimore and Linda Star Wolf

A New Age of Enlightenment: Spiritual Warriors Motivated By Love

In this time of upheaval, with old systems fighting to keep a stronghold on established patriarchal forms of hierarchy and separation, we are each being summoned to embrace our spiritual warrior to make a difference in our world. We are called to stand in sacred truth...


Exercise: Sitting with the Shadow

Written by Raven Digitalis

Exercise: Sitting with the Shadow

We all have it ... those inner voices of pessimism and opti­mism ... an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. In fact, global religions throughout time have long attributed spiri­tual titles to these forces, often seeing them as external forces that affect our inner lives.


Become A Master Reframer – Seeing Negative Stuff Differently

Written by Emma Mardlin, Ph.D.

Become A Master Reframer – Seeing Negative Stuff Differently

You can turn negative situations on their head. This isn’t to say that bad or negative things don’t happen; rather that, if it does, you can look at what you can do about it by viewing things differently and looking for alternative meanings.


The Key For A More Peaceful World: Seeing Similarities, Offering Kindness

Written by Marc Lesser

The Key For A More Peaceful World: Seeing Similarities, Offering Kindness

These two practices, seeing similarities and offering kind­ness, are incredibly rich in terms of building inner resources and incredibly valuable for loosening our fears and biases and allowing us to see that we are all one tribe, one family — the human family.


What Your Attention Is Upon, You Become

Written by Joyce Vissell

What Your Attention Is Upon, You Become

When our three children were living with us, we had a family dinner each night. As we were eating, we always asked, “Tell us something good that happened to you today.” We all took turns telling something good that had happened. We wanted our children to focus first on the good in life.
