“Obedience: What part of you is in charge? Be mindful of your inner knowing. Follow your deepest impulse with discipline and decisiveness.”*

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 When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge. To determine whether you follow your own authority, explore your information source. Your authentic self invites your head to support your heart and not vice versa. It feels like faith, trust, and ease even when faced with challenges. It also allows openness and appropriate vulnerability.

Connect to your inner knowing to sculpt your life around your authentic essence.

You have to know your highest authority to obey it. Clutter, both physical and energetic, can release when you tune into what matters to you. When you return to what you know, you can address real issues and direct your efforts efficiently and effectively. Plus mental, emotional, and even physical symptoms can unhook when you focus in the right place. You may connect to your knowing in meditation, in nature, by getting grounded, or perhaps through a healing modality. Explore getting to know yourself and find practices which support returning there.

Invite light-hearted discipline and decisiveness to support your highest authority.

To obey yourself, an action step, converts your knowing into aligned being and doing. Discipline may sound like deprivation but in fact it can concretize and cultivate what you want. I recently read a great article which recommended you “Savor your habits.” It becomes easy to obey your inner knowing when you love how it feels to stay aligned with yourself and the outcomes it produces. Feeling good makes discipline and decisiveness your allies. Mastery feeds greater mastery.

Do you find it harder to connect to your highest authority or to obey it? What supports making aligned choices?

*Obedience quote from The Original Angel Cards Book by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.

This year I found my word of the year in my Akashic Records. It amuses me I sometimes forget I have this vast soul resource I can access whenever I want. This reminds me to stay present.

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.

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!
