“Presence: Your thoughts create. Your actions matter. Your presence changes everything. Align with your essence. Know your place, stand up fully in yourself, and greet each moment afresh.”*

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. You can then redirect energy spent once spent on managing life to manifesting soul-inspired outcomes. Real means you release inner conflicts and the torment of any expectations which do not align with your heart and gut.

When you know your place, you know you belong.

In her group meditations, my Akashic Records teacher Linda Howe often refers to owning where you stand. Standing unapologetically in your body, in this container which carries the soul expression of you, grounds you in the explicit permission to accept your rightful place on this earth. This allows you to fill yourself with your you-ness, with confidence in connection to self, others, and the planet.

Presence arises in the present and reflects your soul.

When present, you no longer rely on your beliefs about yourself to direct your thoughts, feelings, and actions. You get created and recreated in every moment via your soul’s yearning to evolve and connect. You respond mindfully, heart-fully, in the present. Old stories and future fears no longer influence your trajectory.

According to Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, a harmonious Fifth Depth supports self-acceptance, authenticity, and intimacy. It also prevents hiding and lying to yourself and to others. Thus it brings you into authentic presence. Fifth Depth self-helps include Safety Energy Locks 24 to 26, Organ Function Energy Heart and Small Intestine, and your pinkie finger. Hold each self-help for thirty-six exhales and inhales, for a fixed length of time, or until it feels complete.

When do you feel your presence? How does it feel in your body?

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

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!
