Empowerment Via Your Soul Authority

Everyone receives conditioning from their family, peers, educational system, and employers which cultivates acceptable and preferred behaviors. If you perform as expected, you get rewarded, and thus your behavior gets reinforced. Without some conditioned behaviors and expectations, societies can collapse into lawless chaos. Yet as you mature as a soul you discover a big gap between modern-day societal norms and your own internal authority, the voice of your spirit.

Feeling badly about yourself results from believing a lie. You might believe you need more of any of the following: accomplishments, friends, money, time, weight loss, health, or even enlightenment. Indeed any of those might benefit you and even allow you to serve others more fully but the lie arises in faulting yourself for not being somewhere else now. You can’t alter time and space!

The lies originate from an authority other than your soul since your soul cannot lie. Your soul’s wisdom and guidance might seem quiet or dormant while overpowered by your conditioning and other introjected or external authorities but it never leads you astray. It aligns you to your personal True North, returning you there again and again every time you fall for a lie.

Soul authority always comes from a loving, compassionate place. This authority brings a sense of “you’ve got this” rather than “you’ll never get this.” It empowers you to accept your current experience while envisioning and inviting a more expanded one. Soul authority recognizes your innate value regardless of your present circumstances and experience.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 19 invites owning your own authority. SEL 14 harmonizes desires, judgment, competition, and wanting “more.” I recommend holding self-helps for 36 out-breaths and in-breaths or until they feel done.

Have you experienced transformation by honoring your soul authority? How does following your soul guidance feel?

Presence means you embody and empower your authentic self. When you let go of any facade created to make yourself look better to yourself or to others, you liberate yourself.

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!
