InnerSelf Newsletter: November 12th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

If I were to choose one word to summarize this week's featured articles, I would choose "within". We are being encouraged to look within to find solutions to our world's ills and to discover inner peace and happiness.

And when I reflect on the reluctance that we may have about going within, trusting our inner guidance, and being true to our highest self, I am reminded of the well-known quote from Marianne Williamson (which has at times been attributed to Nelson Mandela):

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Mark Thurston encourages us in this process by asking "What Are Your Talents and Strengths?" Barbara Berger writes "Does Everyone Have An Inner Compass?" and Nancy Windheart shares "How To Know When Telepathic Animal Communication Is Real". Meg Beeler, author of Weave the Heart of the Universe into your Life, writes about "Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the Cosmos". To gain insight on all of these topics, one must go within.

I encourage us all this week to let our "brilliant self" shine and express itself and thus participate in the healing of humanity. Dr. Naeem writes in his article, Expanding the Healing Process: It's Not Just About You

"...we are all connected. This connection permeates to the deepest levels of who we are, and any change in our own inner state will naturally realign those of others in our immediate environment. They, in turn, will effect similar changes in other people in their surroundings in a healing chain reaction."

Thus our light, our joy, our healing, helps birth the same process in those around us. We are the butterflies whose fluttering wings are felt across the globe. Fly free and let your love light shine!

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

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the Cosmos

Written by Meg Beeler 

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the Cosmos

Your body “knows” connection with nature when you hike, garden, watch the moon rise, or collect stones and shells. Your heart remembers your own and your children’s joy in climbing trees, swimming in creeks, catching polliwogs.
