Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

We all have goals in life, even any of us who might say we "go with the flow". Our goal could be simply to be healthy, or to be happy. Now those may seem like non-specific goals, but they encompass so many things that they actually are, of course, major goals. So this week, we bring you articles to help you attain whatever goals, big or small, that you envision for yourself.

We start with Jason Caldwell and "Striving for the Impossible: The Way To Achieve Your Goal". We then move on to HeatherAsh Amara who shares about "Healing Trauma Gently with Calm Presence, Kindness, and Love" because trauma, and memories of trauma, are major impediments to rising above limitations and making our highest dreams come true.

Will Wilkinson then remnds us all that "The Force Is With You -- You Are The Force" Sarah Varcas tells us about some astrological assistance on fulfilling our potential and our goals, in "Your North Node: The Most Important Part Of Your Birth Chart!" Also check out this week's Astrological Journal with Pam Jounghans for some empowering info.,

And, of course, to attain any goals we have, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, a healthy body is of great importance. Rena Greenberg give us some information about "Building a New Foundation: Eating Healthfully and Simply".

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 that cover a variety of topics with the goal to inform you and provide you with needed tools to create a healthy and happy life..

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

Striving for the Impossible Is The Way To Achieve Your Goal

Written by Jason Caldwell

Striving for the Impossible: The Secrets of High-Performance Leadership
There is no “solution” to this problem. The only way to achieve the goal we are all leveraged toward achieving is to do something nobody has ever done before. Right there, in the middle of the raging ocean, Latitude 35 will have to do the impossible.


Healing Trauma Gently with Calm Presence, Kindness, and Love

Written by HeatherAsh Amara

Healing Trauma: Proceeding Gently with Calm Pres­ence, Kindness, and Love
Our individual reactions to life events are complex and unpredictable. Some people come out of very difficult life experiences with more resiliency and capacity. Trauma is not in the event but in the nervous system of the person experienc­ing the event.

The Force Is With You -- You Are The Force

Written by Will Wilkinson

The Force Is With You -- You Are The Force
"May The Force be with you." We first heard that phrase in Star Wars and it quickly went viral, entering the mainstream as a description of the invisible power that runs the universe, presumably imbued with some kind of ethic. Another term immediately arose: "the dark side of the force."
