Seeing Eye to Eye

Drawing of a woman's face emphasizing her eye

While instituting fresh starts this year, consider releasing comparison.  Comparing leads to suffering since it generally leads to someone evaluated as worth “less” versus someone else as worth “more.”  If someone gets labeled smarter, prettier, or more personable, it means someone else becomes dumber, uglier, or less personable.  Perceived inequities can lead to alienation, a feeling of separateness from the rest of the either superior or inferior humans.  Comparison can also lead to pride or envy, neither of which satisfies at a soul level.  When one of these “unequal” patterns surfaces during my Akashic Records readings, one person appears above the other, preventing direct eye contact between the two.  If two people can’t make eye contact, they can’t connect at a heart level, either.

Feeling inferior alienates via a perceived deficit, feeling you don’t have what other humans do.  You might work extra hard to compensate or you might give up.  When the feeling gets intense, you might feel like isolating yourself to avoid the pain of “not enough,” of not belonging here or anywhere.

Feeling superior alienates through distinguishing yourself as better than others, perhaps even in a class all to yourself.  Feeling superior can bring a variety of pitfalls with it: the frustration and annoyance with all the supposedly inferior beings, not feeling sufficiently revered, perhaps fear around needing to work to sustain your superiority, and the inherent loneliness of the belief “I’m the only one like me.”

To realize inner and outer peace and harmony, we have to move toward equality, existing on the same level, able to look each other directly in the eye instead of experiencing either disempowerment or grandiosity.  Our gifts, skills, and attributes differ but we all contribute to the diverse whole and the amazing potential of humanity.  Releasing estrangement from others and yourself powerfully impacts all beings.  You might affirm “Who and how I am is perfect for me.  Who and how they are is perfect for them.”  For those applying Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure, Safety Energy Locks (SEL) 14, 24 through 26, organ flows Small Intestine and Heart, and your pinkie finger harmonize judging, comparing, and labeling.

How do you release comparing?  What supports you feeling equal, seeing eye to eye?

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!
