Do you often question your choices, second-guessing yourself?  When I explored a client’s second guess in her Akashic Records, I learned “there’s no such thing as second-guessing since the first choice wasn’t a guess.”  Decisions, especially significant ones, require factual information combined with intuition.  In the unusual case of an uninformed decision or wild guess, it usually represents a low-stakes choice, one not worth second-guessing.

Second-guessing arises when your judging mind wonders whether you got it “right,” whether you can avoid unpleasantness or discomfort or regret by switching to a “better” choice.  Unfortunately even if you switch to another option your mind might continue to question your choice.  Second-guessing, like any mind training you “practice,” can become habitual.

If you find yourself second-guessing, remember how you arrived at your initial decision.  You learned what you could, digested the information available to you, tuned into your intuition, and picked what seemed best.  Even the most refined discernment won’t guarantee a particular outcome, sometimes experience fills in the missing data once you follow through with the choice.

For those interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure self-helps, Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 2 addresses indecision.  All the self-helps for worry also calm second-guessing energy.  These include the thumb, stomach organ self-help, spleen organ self-help, and SELs 1 through 4.  The liver organ self-help assists with planning and organization, harmonizing imbalances on both sides of “just enough.”

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!
