Leverage Your Gifts, Sidestep Your Weaknesses

You arrive on this planet with innate gifts and challenges. Your aptitudes come as part of the package of “you.” If you’re like most people, you’ve spent a fair amount of time focusing and working on your weaknesses and taken some of your strengths for granted.

Leveraging your natural aptitudes, assuming you also enjoy those areas, can yield substantiative benefits and greater satisfaction more readily than spending endless hours attempting to improve trouble spots. Stretching yourself feels good but it can feel phenomenal when it aligns with your gifts and preferences.

Aptitudes differ from skills. You carry aptitudes as immutable characteristics whereas you develop skills. For example, while I have some musical aptitude, I no longer have the skills I once did when I practiced playing my cello. Undeveloped aptitudes represent unrealized potential.

You can learn skills which don’t come naturally to you through a combination of the right learning approach for you and persistence. I once tutored someone getting an F in Calculus who ended up with an A and a good working understanding of the material by keying into the way he learned. Sometimes a specific goal forces you to endure unpleasant lessons or even entire courses (can you say quantum mechanics?), particularly if you require a specific degree for the career you envision. However, without a larger context driving such effort, some pursuits may not be worth the investment since you could receive a bigger payout with less effort in an area with greater personal resonance and aptitude.

If you can afford it, I recommend you hire professionals to perform tasks in areas of low aptitude or enjoyment. In my case, employing a tax accountant, a financial advisor, and a housecleaner frees me to focus on what calls me at a soul level. If you can’t afford to hire someone, see if you can get free help such as tax advice at your local library or by trading some skill or gift you have with others with differing aptitudes and skills.

Do you tend to focus on what comes naturally to you or on what doesn’t? Where do you get the greatest payoff?

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!
