Risk: Expand Beyond Your Perceived Limits

“Risk: Step out of your comfort zone and into the unknown.” Your comfort zone defines the extent you believe you can stretch yourself. Metal tempered at high temperature withstands subsequent exposure to lower temperatures. Likewise, when you reach beyond your perceived limits, you permanently expand your range. You might run your first marathon, ask someone on a date, or give a presentation.

Risk becomes manageable when you focus on the experience and not the outcome. While your first presentation might feel awkward or even unpleasant, taking that risk permanently alters your experience of yourself. Plus you begin building your internal database on how to approach (or avoid!) your next speaking engagement. When considering taking a risk, bear in mind people tend to have lower expectations for beginners, essentially giving you a free pass when you try something new.

“Be bold, visible, and mindfully daring.” Risk rarely occurs in private. More often risk involves unveiling some aspect of yourself to the world where your courage gets witnessed. While risk feels dangerous, facing it with boldness and daring empowers you. Embracing risk demonstrates your ability to transcend fear and thus bring yourself forward wholeheartedly.

“Dance with uncertainty and live your life to the fullest.” Staying small and safe where life feels certain can lead to stagnation. Opening yourself to possibilities frees energy previously used to avoid change. For example, tomorrow I drive to Brattleboro, Vermont for a Jin Shin Jyutsu® special topics class. Traveling involves risk for me since I have celiac disease and must source safe food while away from our pristinely gluten-free kitchen. If I stay home where I know safety and certainty, I will miss a great learning opportunity, a chance to expand myself. Risk beckons you to act while holding hands with your fear.

When does taking a risk feel better than not taking one? Do you think rewards scale with risk?

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 When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge.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!
