Perfect Choices

My background in science and engineering taught me to think linearly, to believe arriving at the right answer just required sufficient know-how and effort.  However, what served me in the engineering world worked poorly in most of the rest of life.  Perfectionism, a desire to control, seeking right answers, and the worship of effort over grace don’t work well when it comes to life’s mysteries.

When my intuitive healing abilities unexpectedly surfaced in 2007, my sudden undeniable awareness of something much larger than I forced me to reframe my own knowledge and efforts.  Surrendering to a higher power didn’t require a leap since I had no ability or training whatsoever to heal on my own.  I entered an unfamiliar classroom.

During my first Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure class, our instructor Muriel Carlton replied to questions about how to approach projects with “You are the artist.”  I interpreted this as her unwillingness or perhaps inability to explain the “right” approach, not understanding each practitioner must honor both their accumulated knowledge of the complex ancient art as well as their intuition.  Knowing every flow contributes to harmony and we as practitioners can “do no harm” didn’t satisfy me then but comforts me now.

My Akashic Records teacher Linda Howe says “Every reading is perfect for you and for the person you are reading.”  Again this perfection refers to our highest good from our soul’s perspective, not from the point of view of our human preferences.  When giving readings I again feel guided and led, aware I couldn’t hope to do it better myself, couldn’t improve on its inherent perfection.

Thus everything I say and every action I take represents a perfect choice, the divine and much more forgiving version of a right answer.  I still study, still learn, and still occasionally briefly wonder why the universe leads me one direction and not another, but I also enjoy the freedom knowing I don’t direct either the work or what results from my actions.  It feels like an offering, not me trying to force something to happen.

When do you feel led?  When do “right answers” seem to surface most naturally?  When do you surrender to a greater knowing?

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!
