Invite Surrender

Somewhere between trying to control life and slipping into defeated inaction, lies a surrender which also allows right action in the moment.  When you say you need someone to behave a certain way or if you say you need your business to improve or even if say you need to surrender, you reflect your preferences, not current reality.  You need what you have and have what you need in every moment.

The payoff from surrendering won’t come from a defeated resignation but rather stepping back into your own power, the power to influence your experience and resultant outcomes.  When you try to override the mystery of life, the universe, God, or whatever you call “what’s bigger than I am,” you waste energy you could otherwise direct toward what you actually can influence.  Tapping this efficiency brings relief because you can relax into your own abilities rather than feeling inadequate and overwhelmed.  Notice how life gets easier, even effortless, when you effort less.

What if you just can’t find a way to stop trying to engineer your life?  Surrender to your non-surrender.  Accept your tendency to want to control what you experience and remember your inability to surrender wants to teach you lessons about your life.  Relief comes swiftly when you drop into trusting what brought you into this world in the first place.  Honor yourself and your present experience and know everything evolves toward the highest good, regardless of how unfair or illogical life may seem.

For Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure self-helps, apply Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 12 to yield to “Thy Will, Not My Will.”  Safety Energy Lock 2 invites expansion into life, harmonizing the contraction of control.  Use Organ Function Heart and Small Intestine self-helps to relieve dictatorial thoughts and “trying to.”  I recommend holding each self-help for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths or until you feel “done.”

When does surrender seem easy?  Impossible?

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!
