Power: Consciously Energize Your Life

Recently I helped a client who felt like someone’s puppet, feeling disempowered and overwhelmed. An Akashic Records reading revealed she falsely believed she had to kowtow to the other person’s demands. While the controlling person did try to dictate my client’s behavior, once my client reconnected with her power to choose her own actions, she returned to herself and no longer felt like a puppet.

“Power: The capacity to act on your awareness with loving discernment.” You lose power when you believe you don’t have enough or you don’t remember how to access it. Empowerment begins with the seed of what you believe about yourself and your ability to take a stand. The capacity to act consciously in alignment with your heart, mind, and gut demonstrates personal as well as universal power.

“Utilize your resources to the fullest and create win-win experiences.” Stepping into your power means you have access to all the resources at your disposal. Authentic power benefits both you and all beings, thus triggering positive outcomes requiring less effort. Applied consciously, power spontaneously replenishes itself and energizes those around you as well.

Both saying no and saying yes consciously can empower you in relationships. Openly saying where your willingness lies unlocks additional energy to propel to toward what you want and away from what you don’t want. A preference for harmony over conflict may lead you to go along rather than overtly state what you want. In times of extreme stress you sometimes forget to check in with yourself at all. Returning to conscious choice re-energizes a sense of living on purpose, with purpose.

With Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure self-helps, you tap into universal power with Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 8 and personal empowerment via SEL 13. Apply self-help holds for 36 out-breaths and in-breaths, for a fixed length of time, or until they feel “done.”

How do you shift from disempowered to empowered? Does your power ever surprise you?

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!
