Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
We are not powerless! No matter what anyone has told us or what the "powers that be" may try to get us to believe, we are powerful beyond measure, as Marianne Williamson wrote many years ago.. We are the creators of our own life. This week we look at how to create our desired reality. We start with Eileen Campbell encouraging us to "Create A New Story for Yourself: Become The Hero of Your Own Life ". We follow that up with "The Greatest Piece of Art You Will Ever Make Is Your Own Life".
One of the keys to making positive change happen is "Choosing to Love Unconditionally: The World Needs Unconditional Love" however, the love must be for ourselves as well as for all of humanity... whether they are two feet away from us, or 500 or 5,000 miles.
Sarah Varcas shares the power of the full moon and of our thoughts in "Sudden Twists of Fate? The Full Moon Magic Is Us" and I, Marie T. Russell, share my thoughts on "Why Marianne Williamson's Candidacy for President Is Important" and suggest one thing you can do to empower the change needed in the world -- and in this case, more specifically, the USA.
Lauren Walker shows us how to "Tap Into Your Own Magic: Where You Look Is Where You Go" and we take a look at a goal for all of us in "A Life Worth Living... Without Regrets". We complete the featured articles for this week with Ervin Laszlo who introduces us to an empowering new medicine in "Information Medicine Is The New Paradigm in Health and Healing"
In Pam Younghan's weekly astrological column she states "our current timeline requires that we move beyond restrictive, fear-based perspectives that close us down, that prevent us from living more trusting, heart-centered lives." She also speaks of "the need to release the fears and controls that come from a limited perspective of ourselves and our capacities... Each of us may clearly see what shifts need to occur in the outer world, and we can all do our part in supporting the changes that will help humanity move into a more open-hearted, creative, and inspired future."
This week, I implore you to become the hero in the story you are living. Have bold thoughts, take action, be brave, and hold within your heart the vision of the future you wish to create. We must be firm in our resolve and live from our convictions and our inner truth -- and hold the vision in our heart and transmute it to our actions.
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.
Marie T. Russell

Written by Eileen Campbell
Feeling ourselves a victim is never a good choice to make when confronted with difficult circumstances. Self-pity, complaining, and pessimism do not serve us well, but take us in a downward spiral increasing our unhappiness and making the situation worse. It’s far better to choose to be hopeful that we can get through this...

Often the spirits only whisper and we confuse their voices with the wind, but if we do not pay attention, they may well unleash a hurricane in our lives. They certainly did with me and with many of my students because we were slow responding – but we lived to tell the tale and it was a tale of rebirth and miracles.
Written by Eileen Caddy MBE and David Earl Platts, PhD.
Unconditional love is loving people freely, fully and openly, with no expectations, demands or restrictions. It gives total acceptance and respect and does not criticize or judge. Unconditional love is constant and is not turned on and off as in conditional love.
Written by Sarah Varcas
This moon reminds us we don’t have to believe a single thought or subscribe to any belief unless we choose to. And we must choose with great care, for what occupies our mind also shapes our life. If we can simply sit in silent witness of all our mental meanderings at this moon, we can create the space around our thoughts which allows us to just be: watching them without believing them. Assessing their value before committing to them.

How do you know something exists if you never hear about it? How do you know about the truth, which is often "the other side of the coin", if it is never exposed to the light? Perhaps those two questions answer the implied question in the title: Why Marianne Williamson's Candidacy for President Is Important.

At the end of the day we’re all looking for magic. This includes the ability to affect change, sometimes miraculous change, in our lives at will. Energy wants to move and flow, and once you start to listen to it and tune in, it will take you on amazing journeys.

The American software consultant I interviewed told me about an exercise he did ages ago that has stayed with him his whole life. The participants in the workshop he was in were asked to write their own eulogy, then deliver it to the class, speaking about how they wanted to be remembered.
Written by Ervin Laszlo and Pier Mario Biava, MD.
Things and events in the universe are not haphazard and chaotic: they are formed—“in-formed”—by universal attractors. The recognition that the manifest world, and thus the living organism, is “in-formed,” suggests a new definition of bodily health and disease.
