Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we bring you articles to assist you, in the words of author Marc Lesser, in "learning to love the “full catastrophe” of this crazy mixed-up world and the struggle of attempting to make sense of it all." We start off with Will Wilkinson's article, "Learning To Use A Super Power We All Have". Will is the founder of the Noon Club. Find out more about the Noon Club and how you can participate -- and use your super power -- at the bottom of his article.
We follow-up with Jude Bijou and "3 Steps to Hear Your Intuition and Create A Dynamic Duo With Your Rational Mind". We might have been taught, and believed, that intuition and mind were two opposing forces, but they are not. When used together, they create a powerful force -- another super power!
Rabbi Daniel Cohen invites us to reflect on the question: "How Would The World Be Different Without You?" And Diane Gehart introduces us to "The Art of Savoring: Joyfulness as a Way of Life" while Robert Jennings asks: "Can You Predict The Future?"
Marc Lesser (quoted earlier) merges the world of our personal life with business leadership in: "Mindfulness In Action: Avoidance Is Natural But Self-Defeating". Jodie Jackson reminds of that we have "The Power To Change: Changing Our Media Diet To Become More Informed, Engaged and Empowered".
Our goal, as always at InnerSelf, is to provide tools and information to empower each reader to find the inner strength to create the world you desire, and that the children of Planet Earth deserve. We are not powerless, we do not have to be victims. We can reach deep within and find the strength and the guidance to be who we are meant to be... to play our role in the drama that is unfolding around us (and possibly inside of us as well).
We invite you to share the articles with as many people as you can...It is by helping spread the light (and the love) that we can have a bigger impact on the world around us. It is your world, it is your life... It is time for all of us to wake up, stand up, and take action... whichever action we are guided to take. And to rediscover our super power(s) and use them for the Good.
Also, a reminder about our new section: "Remember Your Future On 3rd of November" which focuses on the issues affecting us, not just in the USA, but world-wide with the approach of the 2020 US election. These articles are meant to inform and inspire you to take action, and if you are a US resident, to vote! Your voice and your vote do count.
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.

Today, I'm introducing another new term, a word I invented years ago that turns imagination into a verb: "imagifi." Usage: We can imagifi a situation by applying our imagination to it and asking, "What if..?"
Written by Jude Bijou
Consulting and following our intuition is the easy way to experience joy, love, and peace in our lives. Our intuition, or inner knowing, makes a dynamic duo with our rational mind, our outer knowing or thinking. Used together, our heart and mind constitute an unstoppable team.

As you begin to cultivate the art of extraordinary happiness, you begin to discover joy. Joy to me is a feeling that comes from within, whereas happiness, in its ordinary sense, is usually triggered by something in the outside world.
Written by Robert Jennings, InnerSelf.com

Of course, we are each of us in charge of our own lives. But more to the point, gaps we identify at work, whatever our job, often relate to gaps we experience at home, in relationships, as parents, and so on. Gaps of pain and possibility exist in every realm, and sometimes, when we recognize a gap in one area, it can open up a flood of recognition that goes far beyond our original focus.
