Communication: Authentic Sharing

“Communication: A vital link between your interior experience and outward expression.” Transmitting your inner reality to the world requires connection and communication both. Sometimes the challenge lies in finding someone who can hear you at a heart level. Other times you may find it hard to share a tender part of yourself. Whenever you do communicate, you take a leap from your quiet internal incubator to the radiant, sometimes glaring, external light of day.

Willingness to share your feelings and thoughts can engage you in more meaningful relationships to yourself, others, and the environment.” When you represent yourself authentically, not just quietly acquiescing to other people’s mandates, your relationship to yourself strengthens. Yet before you can openly declare yourself, you must admit your truth. Stating it, perhaps first to yourself only in your heart-mind or in a private journal, can energize and support your authentic self.

Appropriate vulnerability with others, such as Brené Brown discusses, allows intimacy (into-me-you-see). We humans innately crave love, both giving and receiving love. Authentic love requires each participant to have some self-awareness and a willingness to share themselves. For those with difficult families of origin, authenticity in the world may require you to build self-trust and trust of others in order to strengthen your vulnerability muscle. The ability to feel and express love brings meaning to what you say and do, inherently changing the landscape of your life.

Sharing feelings and thoughts also shifts you from observer to participant which engages you with the environment. The healing I experience in the woods comes alive in a new way when I share how it energizes me, how it makes me feel more grounded, present, and vital. When you share what moves you, energy shifts both internally and externally. You respond to your environment and in turn it responds to you. In other words, you constantly co-create your life experience.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 10 supports your voice whereas expression gets harmonized by the Organ Function Energies Diaphragm, Stomach (thoughts), and Spleen (feelings).

Where do you find it challenging to communicate authentically? Do you have any communication victories or epiphanies to share?

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!
