Don’t Set Your Money on Fire

“Don’t set your money on fire,” I heard in a recent Akashic Records reading.  My empathetic and compassionate client worried a lot about a dear colleague and friend she feared might get cut in the rumored impending layoffs at their company.  In response, the records compared worrying, a form of energetic “spending,” to setting money on fire.  You only have so much energy “currency” just as you only so much time or money.  Instead of worrying, the records suggested she invest in comforting herself, finding ways to attend to her own needs around what might or might not happen.

The records also brought forth the idea of an “energetic global bank account” and how you can make deposits or withdrawals depending on how you spend your energy.  Essentially where you focus either assists you and everyone else or it doesn’t.  While worrying generally doesn’t create external harm, you end up losing energy you could spend more wisely elsewhere.  Finding a way to “invest” adds to the global account and benefits you as well.

After drafting this post I happened upon a quote from Mary Burmeister who brought Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ)  to the U.S., “Worry is paying interest on money I don’t have,” another interesting metaphor between worry and money.  Worry always pertains to something imagined, not real.

Harmonize worry with the Jin Shin Jyutsu self-helps of thumb, Safety Energy Locks (SEL) 1 through 4, and Organ Functions Stomach and Spleen.  If you’d like to learn more about worry, I wrote about The Fear Creating Worry here.

How do you “burn” energy?  Care to share some of your better energetic investments?

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!
