“Balance: Hold a point of steadiness and moderation.” I find moderation challenging at times. Some commitments trigger a compulsion to overdo it, to give 110%, to leave nothing in the tank. Unfortunately I tend to discover imbalance after the fact, when other parts of my life get neglected. For example, after a year of assisting my mother, I realize yet again I need to return to moderation. Crises I can manage. My greater challenge comes in releasing crisis mode after the urgency subsides. Moderation calls me back to myself, to return to what sustains me. Likewise steadiness invites a consistency, an equanimity, the epitome of take it as it comes. Moderation and steadiness rarely arise during crises.

“Find a point of equilibrium and peaceful coexistence in the midst of change.” Change tests your balance point and fluidity. If you’d like a sense of your grounding, ask someone to stand facing you and physically test you by gently pushing your upper body from side to side alternately pressing each of your upper arms. They can then test your front to back steadiness alternating gentle pushes on your upper chest and back. Your body reflects your mental, emotional, and physical states. When wobbly, you must return to center, to what keeps you upright.

Balance embraces the polarity of opposites. Balance pairs include inhale and exhale, light and dark, give and receive, work and play, listen and speak, spend and save, keep and release, start and finish, open and close. Via balance you find right timing and proportion so you can choreograph your life to reflect your soul identity and purpose.

Many Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure flows support balance. Flow, balance, and harmony represent the core of Jin Shin Jyutsu, the basis for healing and wholeness. See the partial list of balance JSJ self-helps below.

Presence means you embody and empower your authentic self. When you let go of any facade created to make yourself look better to yourself or to others, you liberate yourself.

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.

NEED HELP CHOOSING A SESSION?

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!
