Family gatherings may kindle warm memories, intense frustrations, or something more neutral.  From your soul’s perspective, your family members including those acquired by marriage or adoption represent the optimal teachers and connections for you in this lifetime.  According to the Akashic Records, you incarnate repeatedly with the same twenty to thirty souls and make pacts with them to explore specific themes and life lessons.

Every relationship, even ones with frustrating family members, helps you advance your realization of your innate soul-level goodness.  You sometimes learn this best via difficult people and relationships and other times through ample harmony and support.  The angst-inducing ones may not make sense from your human perspective since a neglectful parent, an abusive spouse, or a mean-spirited child could undermine your faith in human goodness.  Over time, however, they may provide the ideal fuel to recognize your value doesn’t depend on others and you can choose what actions best support your development and satisfaction.

My Akashic Records teacher Linda Howe suggests asking “How is this good for me?” resorting to “How can this possibly be good for me?” as needed.  Look for the positive aspects of a given relationship.  So say you experience a tumultuous marriage which ends in a messy divorce.  How could it possibly be good for you?  Perhaps you learned great self-care or developed some authentic and supportive friendships or learned to voice your opinion.  Every experience, even with “characters” you associate with turmoil in your life, invites you back to yourself and your fundamental wholeness.

Most people have family members they relate to better than others.  What happens when you view your more challenging relatives as soul-level teachers?

This year I found my word of the year in my Akashic Records. It amuses me I sometimes forget I have this vast soul resource I can access whenever I want. This reminds me to stay present.

Like most people, I only take an extended rest when forced.

Many of my readers and clients learned to prioritize others over themselves. Even when offered assistance they may decline it, feeling they must sacrifice for the “greater good.” Yet sacrifice and greater good oppose each other.

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!
