Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

When we think of relationships, we may tend to think about a relationship with a "special person". But we are actually in relationship with everything and everyone. We are in relationship with the planet, with plants, our health, our food, our home, our life, our emotions, our self, our fears, our thoughts, and of course other humans and pets. We are in relationship with everything and everyone, and how we "do" relationships is how we "do" life.

This week we look at various types of relationships and how to improve our connection with everyone and everything, including our own self. 

Scroll down for the new articles and videos that were added to the website this week.

Please visit our YouTube channel and subscribe. Thank you.

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