Why do so many people believe in self-sabotage, convinced they deliberately trip themselves, purposely cultivating self-harm as they go?  People wonder why they can’t leave an unsatisfying relationship, can’t improve their self-care, or can’t embrace abundance, concluding since they can’t do what seems obvious they must want to suffer.  We know from the Akashic Records while you sometimes appear to act against your own best interests, you fundamentally want to preserve and sustain yourself, not harm yourself.  Buried somewhere in everything you do lies a genuine benefit, something helpful.

Instead of criticizing yourself, give yourself the benefit of the doubt.  For the moment, suspend believing self-loathing or a lack of self-discipline or any other supposed character flaw prevents change.  The benefit of the doubt trusts your inner wisdom, trusts you know what you need until you don’t need it any more, trusts you look out for yourself.  Change happens naturally when you’re ready and when you give yourself the benefit of the doubt you align with yourself and invite readiness.  Plus when you make peace with your choices, from the ones you love to the ones you might regret, you interrupt your inner critic and the angst it brings.

Clearly we engage in behaviors that don’t appear to serve us as well as other actions might have.  Know these “mistakes” serve you at a soul level.  Wield the benefit of the doubt brush widely and wildly for yourself, connecting to the truth of always doing your best given your current skill set and mindset, how everything you experience optimizes your soul’s evolution, and how at a deep level you aim for what supports you even if you swear the evidence suggests otherwise.

What happens if you let yourself off the hook and give yourself the benefit of the doubt?  Does the idea make you feel lighter or heavier?

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.

With every thought you have, word you speak, and action you take, you obey something or someone. When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge.

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!
