Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
In one of her articles this week, Sarah Varcas asks "Are You Ready to Be a Spiritual Warrior?" This seems to be the theme for the week. I say, it seems to be, because the theme is not a pre-selected one, but rather develops organically as the articles come together for the month. As part of the "spiritual warrior" theme, my article is entitled "When I Grow Up, I Want To Be Like Jesus".
One of the articles focuses on the "Secret Code To Living A Worry-free Life" while another (by regular contributor, Barbara Berger) states "I've Discovered The Fast Route To A Happy Life". These life changes are the result of living an aware life. Which brings us to another article on "Aware vs Unaware Thinking" while Sarah Varcas, in her second article, focuses on "Betraying Ourselves No More".
When we're not living as a spiritual warrior, we may be telling people in authority in our life (doctors, nutritionists, friends...) "Please, Just Tell Me What To Eat". Or we may be living our life based on expectations of "Worst-Case Scenarios".
The good news is, of course, that we are all spiritual warriors whether we are aware of it or not, whether we are living a balanced life or not, and whether we even wish to be one or not. We are what we are, and we are all spiritual beings in physical bodies.
This week, we bring you a total of more than 50 new articles, including eight "Editors' Choice" articles. Please scroll down for the list of "Additional Articles".
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

EDITOR'S CHOICE ARTICLES
Written by Marie T. Russell, InnerSelf
I was reminded lately of a thought that came to me as a child. I don't know what age I was, but I do remember that I was sitting in church on a Sunday morning. I vividly remember thinking to myself, almost as a declaration of life purpose, "when I grow up I want to be like Jesus".

When we believe whatever our story-telling brain fabricates, we are pushing our own buttons! As we listen to this sort of mind chatter, our survival alarm quickly escalates to higher levels of activation. Then our upset reactions seem completely justified!

This is the greatest favor I can do for you as a nutritionist: A diet program that doesn’t tell you exactly which foods to eat and in what amounts. Empowering you to be in deeper relationship with food and with the genius in your body is the surest road to your most powerful metabolism.

Are you suffering from what I call the ‘never good enough’ syndrome? Are you always wanting more than what is? And are you beating yourself up because you don’t have it? Are you convinced that what you have now is not as good as what your neighbors have or what your best friend has.

In Sagittarius, Saturn requires a broader view of our lives, beyond our personal present. It helps us identify connections between apparently random experiences and reveals how past decisions, attitudes and behaviors have painted the picture that is our life today.

Many of us are obsessed with certain things such as food, sex, gambling or work, or with certain people or emotions. When it comes to these obsessions we are out of control. But all of us have one obsession that we tend to ignore: we are obsessed with thinking.

Mercury is retrograde between 9th April and 3rd May 2017 (GMT). This Mercury speaks of the need to trust our instincts over and above the reason of ‘common sense’ logic. There exists great mystery within this process....

It is also highly beneficial to reread the past week's astrological journal as it gives a hindsight view of the events that took place and may provide many "ah-ha" insights.
We add articles to the website daily. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.
"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
