Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we take a look at communication. And while we generally think of communication as taking place with other humans, we expand the scope to connecting with ourselves, with animals, and with Nature. Communication does not happen just with words. As any empath or sensitive person can tell you, a lot is communicated non-verbally. We communicate not only through body posture, tone of voice, and emotions, but also by the energy we hold within our thoughts and heart.

We start out our articles by setting the tone with "Healing Is Love – A Simple Loving Connection " and continue with "Communication Skills: Shifting Between Emo­tional and Mental Communication". Then we learn about "Using Essential Oils To Open Lines Of Communication".

Our authors bring you tools for communication in "Communicating with Animals: Why and How " and also "Techniques For Communicating With Nature". Some of the modalities for animals and Nature can be adapted for communication with other humans as well. After all, energy is energy. I recommend that you read these articles with an open mind and heart as to how to apply what you learn to communicating with the humans in your life as well.

Robert Jennings, co-publisher of InnerSelf, communicates about needed changes in our interpretation of "practical" economic realities. As usual, bobby has a way of summarizing the complex into an easily grasped concept in "Are We Fiddling While The World Burns, Floods, And Dies?".

And of course, we have numerous additional articles, as we do each week. Please scroll down for the featured articles in this new issue of InnerSelf, and also the recap of 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.

Healing Is Love – A Simple Loving Connection

Written by Niki J. Senior

Healing Is Love – A Simple Loving Connection

No matter what we have experienced in our lives, tucked within each and every one of us is love. To me, healing is defined as a pure loving connection; it’s as simple as that. To demonstrate healing is to give love: unconditionally. Love is healing, healing is love.

Communicating with Animals: Why and How

Written by Diane Budd

Communicating with Animals: Why and How

First, let’s establish why we would want to talk to animals. People all have their own reasons, but essentially, it can help to answer a lot of important questions, not only for you but for the animal, too. It also raises your awareness of all animals collectively. We need to learn to honor all creatures, no matter how insignificant they seem to us.
