InnerSelf Newsletter: August 6th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at how things (and people) are not always at they appear, and we see this first through the eyes of this week's lunar eclipse in "Life Under A Lunar Eclipse: Nothing Is Quite As It Seems..". Then, continuing that theme, Marja Norris reminds us that "Your Glass Is Leaking and Overflowing At The Same Time" while Alan Cohen reflects on "When Weird Becomes Wonderful".

Joyce Vissell discovered  a spiritual weekend that looked nothing like she expected in "Lightening Up: A Very Different Kind of Spiritual Retreat" and whereas usually we might think that shouting is not a good thing, you will discover that "Using The Power Shout to Reconnect With Your Inner Potential" is very beneficial.

And also, just because we've thought of ourselves as being one way or the other, or limited somehow, that too is a case of two things being true at the same time, and it simply being a step on our journey. To quote Pam's "Astrological Journal for the Week": "Cultivate your talents and burnish them as brightly as you can... When you overcome your natural shyness and open up a little, you can expand like a flower and find the world isn't always so scary after all: note alveryone or everything presents a danger to be avoided."

We have numerous articles on various topics such as: sharing, hangovers, urban planning, burnout, regret, sugar sadness, good old days, unrecognized autism in women, and much more. Scroll down below for all of the new articles this week.

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

Life Under A Lunar Eclipse: Nothing Is Quite As It Seems..

Written by Sarah Varcas

Life Under A Lunar Eclipse: Nothing Is Quite As It Seems..

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon is full and its light is blocked by the earth’s shadow. Traditionally a time of fruition and harvest, an eclipsed full moon heralds instead hidden fruits and obscured results. Nothing is quite as it seems.

Lightening Up: A Very Different Kind of Spiritual Retreat

Written by Joyce Vissell

Lightening Up:  A Very Different Kind of Spiritual Retreat

When I think of a spiritual retreat, I imagine a lot of meditation, quiet walks, no computers or media, listening to gentle music, and withdrawing from the busyness of the world. Some of that happened, but a different type of spiritual retreat emerged.
