Befriend Your Challenges

According to the Akashic Records and other spiritual teachings, every aspect of your life, including your gifts and challenges, align perfectly to you, optimized for your soul’s evolution.  This sounds blissful and idyllic, doesn’t it?  Yet hurtful challenges can cause you to question the benevolence of life and make you wonder why you got stuck with a particular issue, situation, or person.  Life may run smoothly until an unwelcome challenge disrupts your tranquility.

I still struggle with binge eating which surfaced during my celiac starvation even though I already gained back all the weight and then some.  Every time I can’t solve the “problem” and beat myself up for a behavior driven by unconscious pain, I resist embracing the gift of my challenge.  In fact I hate it.  It humbles me, exposing my soft (and ever softer, haha) underbelly, and when I don’t accept it as my teacher I create much suffering with my thinking about it.  Yet I know I need this particular challenge to awaken more fully since all signs point to this bringing an end to my remaining perfectionism, accessing the unconscious aspects which lurk below my awareness.  This specific challenge serves me more than any other I can imagine.  Life always gives us just what we need.

  • Life benevolently tailors your challenges.  Even the ones which seem overwhelming or unfair still align to your highest good as a soul.
  • Find the kindest perspective you can on the “problem” and yourself.  Release labeling it as a problem if possible since your aversion energizes it.
  • Know if you can accept or even embrace the rightness of it, it softens.  The softening allows you to relax a bit, to engage life more fully and to open your heart to the gifts hidden within the challenge.
  • Notice if you view yourself as a problem.  If so, this challenge may teach you to extend love and compassion to yourself.
  • Each challenge shall linger until you master what you seek to learn at a soul level.  Compassionate life gives you the option of exploring it until the end of eternity if necessary.

Like most people, I only take an extended rest when forced.

Many of my readers and clients learned to prioritize others over themselves. Even when offered assistance they may decline it, feeling they must sacrifice for the “greater good.” Yet sacrifice and greater good oppose each other.

With every thought you have, word you speak, and action you take, you obey something or someone. When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge.

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!
