All too often people feel either inferior or superior to others.  True humility lies in the truth between those poles, where you know your inherent value and don’t need to convince yourself or others of it.  Unfortunately before you reach this place of comfort and ease, you may act either at your own or other people’s expense, trying to console yourself.

True humility doesn’t need to draw attention to itself and so connections to others come naturally, without effort.  When humble, you don’t feel compelled to broadcast your magnificence nor have anyone stroke you for it.  Likewise you don’t need to play small to appear less threatening.  You feel comfortable with yourself which allows people around you to relax as well.

Having humility doesn’t mean you undervalue yourself.  Humility, derived from the same root word as humus (earth), arises from a grounded awareness which neither inflates nor diminishes you.  The myriad ways you can distort your value speaks to the fear-based urge to distinguish yourself as special, different, or perhaps in a class all your own either higher or lower than others.  To transcend this brings peace both inside and out.

From a Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure perspective, feeling inferior or superior both connote “trying to,” not embracing your true self but instead playing a character with a distorted self-image.  Harmonize pretense with Organ Function self-helps Heart (also for dictatorial thoughts directed both inwardly and outwardly) and Small Intestine (unconditional love) and Safety Energy Locks 24 (harmonize chaos), 25 (be still), and 26 (peace and harmony).  I recommend holding self-helps for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths or until it feels complete.

When do you feel most comfortable in your own skin?  Do you feel differently about being humble versus being humbled?

About three weeks ago, my 56-year-old physically fit husband experienced paralysis of his right side following a stroke. Today it's like his stroke never happened.

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!
