“Authenticity: Add your unique ingredients to the mix. Be real. Express yourself. Uncloak your originality and manifest your pure potential.” You possess gifts and perspectives which distinguish you from any other human who ever walked on the earth. While you may notice and appreciate some of your aptitudes, you may take others for granted because they seem normal and thus unremarkable to you. The blueprint of your gifts becomes visible when you embrace everything you bring to this life and pay attention to what comes effortlessly for you.

Many children learn to avoid authenticity in hopes of feeling welcomed by family and/or peers, and sometimes even in order to stay safe and get necessary care. You may have felt obligated to shelve your wants, needs, and feelings so you could attend to another family member or crisis. Even if you did not experience family tension, society promotes prioritizing others over yourself. Continuously pushing yourself aside disconnects you from your authenticity.

You may need to excavate below layers of false self to reunite with your authentic self and your yearnings. First you might need to give yourself permission to make yourself a priority which will support both your internal and external commitments more sustainably. Then notice what brings you joy and a sense of connection. You may have to learn to play again so you can reconnect to your curiosity about what resonates for you. Your full potential transcends roles such as good child, parent, sibling, or employee.

Expressing yourself means you admit and honor your wants, needs, and feelings plus you connect to your creativity. While it may seem difficult, even overwhelming, the resulting freedom makes it worth it. Maybe you start the blog, support the cause, stand in your knowing, or quit your engineering job at IBM to become a healer (I did, anyway!). Maybe you sing, dance, make music, write, sculpt, garden, or sew. Whatever calls to you, bring your unique energy and enthusiasm into everything you do.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure, when you harmonize “trying to” you can more readily reveal your authenticity both verbally and in your actions. The “trying to” self-helps include Heart and Small Intestine Organ FunctionsSafety Energy Locks 24 to 26, and your pinkie finger.

How do you connect to your authenticity? What obstacles remain?

The authenticity quote comes from The Original Angel Card Book – Inspirational Messages and Meditations by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a typical Energy Quartet session go?

We open with a 45 minute or so Akashic Records consultation. The revealed themes, patterns, and disharmonies drive the table work in conjunction with your "pulses," body reading, and my intuitive insights. A follow-up e-mail documents what occurs during the energy work and includes customized self-helps.

What should I wear to receive table work?

In this work, you remain fully clothed. Just wear whatever will feel comfortable while lying on my massage table. If it's a remote session, I'll ask you to rest while I send energy.

How do I prepare for a session?

Please consider the personal or interpersonal disharmony that led you to me and how you would like it to shift. During the session, we'll explore and address the origins and drivers of each "project."

Are the Akashic Records predictive?

No, the records aren’t a good resource for predictions. If there’s something you hope will happen, the records might reveal a series of necessary steps to reach your desired outcome but not the timing. For predictions, please consult a good psychic or astrologer!

Why can't children receive Akashic Records consultations?

Minors are under their parents' legal and energetic jurisdiction until they are 18, regardless of their maturity level.


The greatest benefit occurs when I incorporate all four modalities I practice. The option without the Akashic Records is appropriate for children under 18 who cannot receive readings. A stand-alone reading can bring insight and healing but does not involve my direct interaction with your energetic and physical bodies like my other practices.

Do you record Akashic Records consultations?

No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.

Why do self-helps?

Self-helps, both from Jin Shin Jyutsu and the Embodied Energy System, support your continued harmony, accelerate your evolution, and empower you. Plus they make you sparkly!
