Always Connected

Every now and then I see a client who wants to chuck everything and live like a hermit somewhere remote.  Other clients acknowledge they feel lonely and crave more human connection.  The deeper truth behind this apparent dichotomy is everyone wants to be seen, heard, and felt authentically but sometimes people get disheartened, feeling this is impossible.  The fact is we’re connected whether we feel comfortable with it or not.

Look around you and notice what’s nearby.  My partial list includes my computer, my desk, my massage table, three lamps, colorful artwork and photographs, a couple Tibetan rugs, my business cards, and many books.  All of these were created by people and the raw materials for them were gathered by other people.  If you removed all traces of human influence from your life, you’d end up starving and naked in the woods!  Your clothes and the material for them came from other people, so did your food even if have your own garden since the seeds and tools to plant them came from others, and you wouldn’t be standing in a yard either, since it’s likely your lawn got planted and mowed by someone using tools and materials sourced by other humans as well.  There’s no escaping humanity even when you think it’s what you want.

The next time you feel alone or unsupported, imagine all the people who are supporting you through what they’ve made for you.  Most of them you’ll never meet but they are out there every day assisting others like you.  Conversely, tune into the fact you impact the world daily through what you say, do, and buy.  Even your thoughts have an impact!  You are a part of a larger whole and ultimately there’s escaping others or yourself.

For those of you interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu®, the Diaphragm and Umbilicus organ flows assist with harmony, warmth, and connection to self and others.  Jin Shin Jyutsu® Organ Function Self-Helps

Do you yearn for more or less connection?  Does noticing you are surrounded by human influence feel comforting or stressful?

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!
