Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

If there is one thing we are learning these days, it is that we are all in this together. Borders between continents and countries, divisions within countries whether by race, religion, political party, sexual preference, etc., all of these are non-existent barriers in the face of energy -- in this case the energy of a virus. Even while we practice social isolation, we still are connected... whether virtually or through survival-needed mechanisms such as medical facilities, grocery stores, etc., and mostly by energy.

The energy that unites us is our choice... it can be fear, or it can be love and looking to the future for how to ameliorate our existence on planet earth during and after this crisis. Will Wilkinson asks "What's Really Going On and What Do We Do About It? and I reflect on "What Works For Me: Listening To My Body".

Pauline Wills, in an excerpt from her book entitled Yoga of Light, guides us to take a look at our connectivity in "The Web of Light: The Field of Sacred Energy and The Power of Thought".

Of course, both collectively and individually, we need to make decisions in times of stress, and Dr. Paul Napper, Psy.D. and Dr. Anthony Rao, Ph.D. share about "How To Make Accurate Decisions When Things Are Moving Fast". We all react differently to the stress, and Gary Wagman writes about "Depression, Anger, and Sadness as Related to Yang Body Types".

However, we are not alone and we are not the first to deal with extreme situations that require healing. Dr. Marioanne Teitelbaum helps us in "Exploring Natural Ways of Healing: Traditional Healing for a New Age".

We also have numerous articles dealing with the Coronavirus, always with a focus on providing helpful information both on the physical aspects as well as the emotional ones. These are times when we need the support of friends, even if it is at a distance, to help us separate fact from fiction, and fear from reality. Our additional articles aim to be your friend in this regard.

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

What's Really Going On and What Do We Do About It?

Written by Will Wilkinson

What's Really Going On and What Do We Do About It?
So, who knows exactly what's going on right now? I've reviewed videos, read blogs and articles and books, accessed a variety of news sources, mainstream and sidestream, watched YouTube videos of doctors and economists, listened to informed and anxious friends, and I'm no closer to knowing for sure than before.


What Works For Me: Listening To My Body

Written by Marie T. Russell, InnerSelf

What Works For Me: Listening To My Body
The human body is an amazing creation. It works without needing our input as to what to do. The heart beats, the lungs pump, the lymph nodes do their thing, the evacuation process works. The body runs better than a well-oiled machine. And it's smart too! It knows what it needs when it needs it. The only glitch in the process is, you guessed it, us.

The Web of Light: The Field of Sacred Energy and The Power of Thought

Written by Pauline Wills

The Web of Light: The Field of Sacred Energy and The Power of Thought
We can compare this web of light that permeates the universe to a spider’s web. When a fly becomes entangled in the spider’s web, it sends a vibration along the strands of the web. Similarly, what we think and feel sends along the strands of the web of light vibrational frequencies that can affect people, countries and world situations.


How To Make Accurate Decisions When Things Are Moving Fast

Written by Dr. Paul Napper, Psy.D. and Dr. Anthony Rao, Ph.D.

How To Make Accurate Decisions When Things Are Moving Fast
Thinking under extreme time pressure is not optimal, but it is inevita­ble that we will find ourselves in this situation at times. It is always best not to rush and get seduced by mental short­cuts. Use all the time available to you in making a decision.


Depression, Anger, and Sadness as Related to Yang Body Types

Written by Gary Wagman, Ph.D., L.Ac.

Depression, Anger, and Sadness as Related to Yang Body Types
We all have a unique path in life that, if traveled, brings out the best in us. Yet no path is ever forged for us, and we may have to bushwhack our way through unchartered wilderness when our navigation equipment fails. Depression is an emotional state that all of the body types are capable of experiencing when they feel stuck...
