I began writing this post while on the plane headed to my mother’s home to help her clear fifty years of accumulated items, move and store what she’ll need in Vermont, sell two cars, and start the home selling process with a realtor. Both of us must begin again, to adjust to our new reality, to cope with both the practical and emotional aspects of a huge life transition. To cope with the chaos of this time, I must return to what matters most to me, downsizing my self-expectations along with my mother’s belongings.
“Simply be yourself.” Simple but not easy when you want to alleviate someone’s suffering or to avoid judgment or to keep the unwanted and unhelpful internal voices at bay. Simply being yourself preloads healing, as it propels you into a zone of effectiveness, alignment, and ease.
“Look past the fanfare and drama to what is enduring.” Fanfare and drama can distract you, to perhaps miss the deeper importance and meaning of the unfolding events. As my blog reader Joanne Guidoccio reminded me last week, it helps to ask whether the current issue will matter in ten years. It may not matter in ten months, days, or even minutes.
“Take time to clarify what is important to you and let nonessentials fall away.” A mindful inventory of what does and doesn’t matter to you can dramatically improve your satisfaction and your productivity. You cannot address core issues when caught in minutia, just as I face gridlock when I take my eye off the “crumbs” on my mother’s move – Cars, Realtor, Move (making sure she retrieves her essentials and treasures), and Shred.
How do you know when you need to simplify? What brings you back to what matters to you?

This year I found my word of the year in my Akashic Records. It amuses me I sometimes forget I have this vast soul resource I can access whenever I want. This reminds me to stay present.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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!
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.
No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.
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!
