Spring Forward and Other Time Issues

We moved our clocks ahead an hour this past weekend  to “spring forward.” I dread these biannual time changes since they tend to discombobulate me, especially since I only use an alarm clock on the rare occasions either my husband or I book an absurdly early airline flight. Clearly whoever devised the time change strategy had different wiring than I do. Fortunately, I adjust much more quickly to time changes when I apply the Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure self-helps which also work for jet lag. Please see the table below for more details on what points to hold.

Always arriving either early or late can reflect an imbalance in your relationship to time. You may squeeze time and/or you may get hard on yourself for lateness. The JSJ Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 5-6-7-8 Flow addresses issues related to punctuality and mortality as well. SEL 5 addresses fear, 6 harmonizes balance, 7 invites victory, and 8 represents infinity. The number eight with its balanced top and bottom represents “as above, so below” and also contains the infinity symbol when viewed sideways.

Do you contemplate your mortality, or perhaps more constructively, do you consider what soul trace you’ll leave? I know someone approaching her 30th birthday frustrated with her “failure” to meet societal expectations (husband, baby, house, high paying job) but I find her willingness to follow her heart in her career and personal healing inspiring. In my own journey, I realize my old values of “smart, productive, and thin” do not bring soul satisfaction nor a lasting legacy from the heart.

When, where, and how does time impact your daily life? Your immortal soul-centered one?

A sense of adventure allows you to embrace the unknown and open to what's possible. Release agendas and holding, be curious, and absorb life's richness.

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.

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!
