Don’t Bother Reading Labels

Say you want to improve your diet, maybe even lose a few pounds, and decide to read food labels more carefully.  Instead, how about selecting foods without nutrition labels like fruits and vegetables?  In my engineering days when people asked me what chemical engineers do I explained we figure out how to make money with chemistry, targeting everything from potato chips to computer chips.  This money-making focus doesn’t serve us as consumers when it comes to processed, genetically modified, and pesticide treated foods.  My long recovery from celiac disease, only now becoming a reality through modifying my diet well beyond the mandatory gluten free, convinced me we need to pay closer attention to the food aka “nutritional chemistry” we ingest.

I love the UK-based TV series The Food Hospital where a medical team customizes eating plans for patients with various medical conditions.  Their success rate in managing and often substantially improving symptoms supports what we know intuitively about the impact of food on health.  In one of my favorite episodes, they conducted an experiment comparing the behavior of kids eating typical party food versus ones eating healthier options at a school party.  Not only did the healthy eating group exhibit less aggressive behavior, they also performed assigned tasks more effectively and remembered better as well.  Clearly party food isn’t something to celebrate!

Even if you avoid engineered food, you still get exposed to toxins.  A few of thetoxin-reducing Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure self-helps include Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 10 for environmental toxins, the lung organ flow targeting physical, mental, and emotional waste, and SEL 3 supporting your immune system.  Hold SEL 3 in combination with the same side SEL 15.  JSJ Safety Energy Locks  JSJ Organ Function Self-Helps 

While our minds may consider junk food as a treat, our bodies recognize nutritionally dense, diverse, low toxicity foods as the genuine goodies.  Nature still creates the best food for our bodies despite our technological advances.  These days I can’t seem to get enough roasted cauliflower and broccoli.  What are your favorite vegetables and fruits?  How do you prepare them?

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!
