Love and compassion invite personal shifts far better than fear and criticism do.  The more unacceptable you find your own procrastination, the more tenacious it becomes.  Even the label “procrastination” itself contains a kernel of judgment since virtually no one views it positively.  Releasing your self-judgment offers a free pass out of the pattern.

Where you focus determines your thoughts, feelings, and actions.  Both feelings and actions arise from thoughts and where you direct those thoughts underpins the entire process.  Say you tell yourself you want to start exercising but day after day passes and you don’t start.  Each successive day without exercise you feel more guilty and judge yourself more for procrastinating.  Your thoughts focus on the past, on your regret, and your feelings follow.  While you experience those painful thoughts and feelings, constructive action becomes harder and harder, thus creating a negative cycle.  Focus instead on what you want, in this case exercise, and direct your thoughts, feelings, and action to it.  Doing what you want actually requires much less energy than struggling to do what you want!

For those interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure self-helps, Safety Energy Locks (SEL) 9 and 14 harmonize procrastination.  SEL 9 supports completing projects as well as the fear of success whereas SEL 14 helps you get started and invites mental, physical, emotional and spiritual nourishment.  Both of these SELs also release regret, grief, and guilt.  You’ll find the points here: Safety Energy Lock Diagram I recommend holding the points for at least two minutes while attending to your breath.  Substitute SEL 19 for SEL 9 when applying self-help since SEL 9 is difficult to reach.

Can you release the procrastinator label?  What happens if you stop trying to self-improve and accept yourself in the moment?

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!
