Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

In order to create a better world, a better life, there are certain requirements that must be met. This week, we look at some of them. We start with self-confidence (or the lack thereof) in "Male Imposters: The Secret Shame and Fear Of Not Being Good Enough". We then follow that with how to get clear on our vision in "My Priorities Were All Wrong".

We have infinite creativity at our disposal but we need to discover "What Lessons Has Humanity Yet To Learn To Generate Awesome New Creative Potentials?"

Sometimes, we might think creating the world we desire is very complicated, but it actually is very simple as revealed by
Pierre Pradervand in his article: "Clear Intention + Blessing = Pure Spiritual Dynamite" as well as by Will Wilkinson in "All You Need Is Love... and Pneumaplasm".

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 on a variety of topics.

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

Male Imposters: The Secret Shame and Fear Of Not Being Good Enough

Written by Dr. Sandi Mann

Male Imposters: The Secret Shame Of Not Being Good Enough
Although Imposter Syndrome (IS) has traditionally been seen as a female phenomenon, there isn’t an awful lot of hard data to confirm that women actually do experience this more than men. The reason that it is seen as a female condition is simply that the phenomenon was first discovered using research on women and it is a stereotype that seems to have stuck.


My Priorities Were All Wrong

Written by Ted W. Baxter

My Priorities Were All Wrong
I came across self-improvement mogul Tony Robbins not long after that conversation with my therapist, so I signed up for his “Unleash the Power Within” seminar in February 2013. It started me on the path to figuring out who I was, who I wanted to become, and what my purpose was.

Clear Intention + Blessing = Pure Spiritual Dynamite

Written by Pierre Pradervand

clear intention + blessing = pure spiritual dynamite
We all use intention all day long and couldn’t exist without constantly forming intentions. But between “I plan to go to see this movie tonight” and Gandhi’s intention to free his country from colonial rule using the power of non-violence, there is a slight difference!

Written by Will Wilkinson

All You Need Is Love... and Pneumaplasm
