“Contentment: Savor what is in your life now. The creative process is never finished. Let go of striving and rest in satisfaction and joyous fulfillment.” According to the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, anger and frustration reflect the fear of not getting what you want. In contrast, when you experience contentment, you make peace with the present moment and all it contains. What you get becomes what you want.

You might change the situation, change your thoughts, or change both to alleviate frustration. In relationships, the frustrating person rarely possesses both the motivation and skill set to invite more harmony. Changing a situation works more effectively with internal changes such as receiving energy work or getting support around making new choices.

When you change your thoughts, you reframe the life challenge and discharge some of the negative energy. This energy discharge can in turn alter how you and others respond which may shift the underpinnings of the issue itself. For example, perhaps a friend or family member often requests urgent assistance, looking for help where they themselves have or could develop competency. If their requests repeatedly get filled, no incentive exists for the situation to change, even if you feel burdened. However if you realize you don’t need to respond, you restore your ability to choose, thereby sidestepping the frustration of helping the one who could help herself. Contentment arises when you realize “enough” includes tending to your own needs appropriately.

To further invite contentment, apply JSJ self-helps for fifth depth (release pretending to be happy) i.e., Safety Energy Locks (SELs) 24 to 26, Organ Function Energies Heart and Small Intestine, and thumb, plus SEL 12 (perfect happiness now), SEL 15 (joy and laughter), SEL 22 (happy wherever you are), SEL 24 (alleviate frustration), and SEL 26 (fulfillment).

How do you invite contentment? When does contentment feel out of reach?

The contentment quote came 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!
