InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

May 29, 2023

The focus for today is:

I choose my words with the intention to heal myself, others, and the world.

As human beings, the greatest gift we have at our disposal can also be the greatest weapon—words. We can heal ourselves, others, and the world with words; yet they can also be used in a destructive manner. 

We have been conditioned from birth, by the environment and its dysfunctional systems, to hook into a fear-based mentality and react. Generally, most cultures of the world exist in survival mode, in a pattern of fight or flight, which is a react and defend mentality.

A healthy way of relating is when we are free to express our true feelings without fear, when we speak from the heart and communicate honestly, are emotionally stable, and are able to respond instead of react.

Today's inspiration was excerpted from the article:
     Conscious Communication: Not Reacting from a Fear-Based Mentality
     Written by Nicolya Christi.

This is Marie T. Russell, publisher of, wishing you a day of using your words to heal yourself, others, and the world (today and every day)

Comments from Marie: It's recommended to count to 10 before speaking when we're angry or otherwise emotional. It's a great practice, though perhaps difficult, as it allows us to respond rather than react to what is being said and what is going on.

Our focus for today: I choose my words with the intention to heal myself, others, and the world.

Contemporary Spirituality for an Evolving World: A Handbook for Conscious Evolution
by Nicolya Christi.

Contemporary Spirituality for an Evolving World: A Handbook for Conscious Evolution by Nicolya Christi.Presenting a guide for these auspicious times, Nicolya Christi offers psychological and spiritual tools to accelerate conscious and global evolution and initiate a New Consciousness for the post–December 21st, 2012, epoch. She gives an in-depth overview of religion and spirituality, both the old paradigm and the evolving new one, and explains how all trauma results from “empathic disconnection,” which hinders our spiritual growth. She provides spiritual practices to manifest a meaningful connection between Self and God/Source/Creator as well as psychological exercises to heal and integrate the shadow self and dissolve psychological wounds. She offers the first fully written account of the First Nations Peoples’ oral wisdom teachings on the 7 Dark, 7 Light, and 7 Rainbow Arrows for evolving consciousness. She also writes in depth about the evolution of relationship and aspiring to a higher love and sexuality.

Detailing several maps and models for conscious and global evolution, this handbook inspires each of us toward a consciously evolving spirituality and a true and authentic relationship with God/Source/Creator.
