Our Power Points

I’m in love with the Jin Shin Jyutsu® Safety Energy Locks which are distributed all over our bodies.  Each Safety Energy Lock (SEL) is like a dam allowing flow through it when the SEL is open or preventing flow when it is closed.  Ideally energy flows freely throughout your body so you want all these vital points open all the time.

You have twenty-six Safety Energy Locks on each side of your body.  Each point has meaning, specific projects it addresses, and interesting connections to other points.  Each one essentially has its own personality and function.  Operating like an intricate treasure map to your well-being, the points working in concert bring you harmony and wholeness.

In the SELs there’s the magic of life (SEL 8), joy and happiness (SEL 15), as well as peace and harmony (SEL 26).  There are also points associated with abundance (SEL 10), letting go (SEL 1), and increased intuition (SEL 17), just to name a few.

Various unique SEL point combinations, known as “flows,” address every mental, physical, emotional and spiritual disharmony you might experience.  Flows are applied by Jin Shin Jyutsu® practitioners like me but individuals can also help themselves whenever they like holding pertinent individual points.

The full layout of the Safety Energy Locks is shown here: Safety Energy Locks  There’s a three inch diameter area associated with each point so don’t worry about hitting the bull’s-eye.  As with other self-helps, you can hold them lightly for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths, for a fixed length of time, or until they feel “done.”

I continue to be astonished by the power of our “points” as well as the wholeness of them all working together.  Try a few yourself and see!

Presence means you embody and empower your authentic self. When you let go of any facade created to make yourself look better to yourself or to others, you liberate yourself.

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!
