August Flip Book Version
August PDF Version
August unfolds as the final full month of summer, and we are already anticipating Autumn and ‘back-to-school’ signs are once again looming in front of us. As so often happens in our fast pace of life, we are focused on what comes next rather than on what we have in front of us right now. With our hurried lives, it’s as though the time runs faster than we can. Yet, as we experience the final month of the summer season, let’s take time to pause and appreciate the gifts of the sunny days and warm nights that, during other seasons, we long for.
This is our time – right here and now. We can take each moment to express our gratitude for the multiple gifts, opportunities, and possibilities that are within our grasp. We can appreciate where we live and who we love and all we have learned and are learning. We can see how blessed we are to be nourished by the light of the sun, and in so doing, we come to a place of peace and a sense of plenty, regardless of what is going on around us.
May each of you find a touchstone that is meaningful to you. May your days be filled with a sense of wonder and thanks as we thank and appreciate you for your readership and presence in our lives – and the life of The Inner Voice. This issue is jam-packed with inspirations for healing on the deeper levels where the angels say, true healing happens. Feel free to share it!
Speaking of school, how about learning something new in one of the many classes offered in this issue?
July 2016 Issue

July PDF Version
It’s July, a time of fireworks and the anniversary of our independence as a nation. We celebrate this summer month with parties, vacations and family picnics, while enjoying the hot weather in the northern hemisphere as our friends in the southern hemisphere experience winter. The paradox of earth is that while one half is in sunshine, the other is in dark, and the same with seasons and events. There is joy and tragedy – all happening at the same time, and our opportunity is to go deeper to find the inner wellbeing that we all long for.
This month we offer multiple views for your consideration. Steve Freier shares insights from The Disappearance of the Universe and Penny Kelly reminds us to find our true spiritual calling and live life to the fullest. Beverly Brunelle provides suggestions for finding the light within, and Barry Kerr shares how the astrological configurations affect us in July. Susan Landers reports about how the spirits live on the ‘other side’ while we find our way in this realm. Meredith Sowers gives suggestions for how to deal with tragedy, and if we need help, the angels suggest finding a Power Animal to guide us through life’s mine fields. When all is said and done, the Plumplets invite us to pray and play, and find our own creative outlets that bring more joy into the world.
May you enjoy July to the fullest and find outlets for your own sense of wonder. Let us all remember that we each make a difference and can, indeed, be a blessing to life!

It’s June, and in California the trees are bearing abundant fruit from blossoms galore that grew during a major shift from drought to rain. It’s a reminder to me that it’s easy for us to believe what we see in the moment is how it will always be, but nature has her own time table and ways and means – and just as the we have extremes in weather, it is the same with us humans. We can endure a long drought, only to have something confront us – that we call a miracle – coming seemingly out of nowhere. Our opportunity is to move into the gift and release the state of constriction that has held us hostage, and this month’s issue gives us several articles that prompt that shift in perception.
There are many paths to the top of the mountain, and A Course in Miracles is one of them. Marianne Williamson’s interview sheds light on the process. Serena Dyer shares her miracle story about conception and connection, and Evidence of Angels and the Miracles of Feng Shui are shared, as well.
Beverly Brunelle provides great suggestions for releasing limitations, and Steve Freier focuses on the work of David R. Hawkins. Barry Kerr provides the astrology outlook and transits for June.
We also offer a wonderful selection of books to buy through our Amazon bookstore that will assist you in making whatever shift that will help you in your life. As we now move into the full thrust of summer with the longer days, our options expand. We wish you a joyous month of activities outdoors, as well as quiet time to read and reflect. Balance is key to harmony, and as much as the outer world beckons, let us not forget our inner world as well!

The month of May invites us to go outside and enjoy the garden, whether it is a natural one, or the garden of our interior. The weather is more stable now and we are able to return to the out-of-doors with an attitude of embracing the sunshine and enjoying the splendor of nature.
We are able to join in to take advantage of planting and appreciating the natural world and the many gifts it provides.
This issue of The Inner Voice shares an optimistic approach to many areas of life. We are shown the benefits of natural foods with plenty of suggestions for healthy eating and healthy aging. We are reminded of our place in the universe and are guided through several insightful articles to make the most of who and what we are during this pre-summer month. Opportunities abound, and it’s up to us to take advantage of what is all around us.
So let’s embrace the possibilities and make this a marvelous time of fulfilling our potential in multiple ways. And, let’s remember our wonderful mothers – including Mother Earth – and pay her special tribute. May this be a beautiful, bountiful month, full of love, light, and many blessings!
