InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

June 17, 2024

The focus for today is:

I choose to live my life more mindfully
and in tune with the “mystical”.

Today's inspiration was written by Ora Nadrich:

If our own brains can manufacture chemicals that can literally produce the type of endorphins that make us feel as good, or as high as a drug or alcohol can, why in the world aren’t we looking within for the very gifts, remedies and even cures for what ails us? 

What is it that we are numbing ourselves from, and why so much drug and alcohol use? We have the answers, we just aren’t asking ourselves the right questions. 

Don’t we want better results? Aren’t we ready to stop doing the same things over and over again, but instead try doing things differently? Maybe that means living our lives more mindfully and in tune with the “mystical”. By doing this, we may find the moments of our lives more magical, and rich with meaning, and only then can we truly experience less pain and more joy — even elation or euphoria.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     How To Experience A Mystical State of Consciousness
     Written by Ora Nadrich.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of mindfulness and mysticism (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
We've been taught that "others" are powerful, spiritual, etc.... but not us. We are mere "humans" we are told. Yet Jesus, the master miracle-maker, said that we too could do these things that he does. He was our brother, our teacher, our role-model... not someone to be worshipped as so much more superior than we are. So let's claim our power, let's be mindful of what we can accomplish when we choose to believe that we can. Tune in and connect with that power that is yours, and create the health, the love, and the joy that is just waiting for you to claim it.  

Our focus for today: I choose to live my life more mindfully and in tune with the “mystical”.
