Time Squeeze

As gifted and powerful as you are, you can’t alter time.  Yet if you’re like most people, you probably sometimes act like you can, trying to cram too much into the time you have, creating a sense of failure when you don’t finish everything.  Overcommitting also creates an on-going pressure to perform, to hurry up and get through your continuously replenishing “to do” list which is impervious to how efficient you are.  As long as you live you’ll create new aspirations and plans, but the hamster wheel only spins when you agree to run on it.

Clients who arrive or call late typically apologize by explaining all the tasks they were trying to finish before their appointment.  In a sense, this attempt at time-warping is a form of violence, since it sets up unrealistic self-expectations resulting in regret and remorse.  You also send a clear message to yourself when cramming in more tasks ranks ahead of honoring yourself by approaching your schedule with relaxed readiness.

Play with dropping some lower priority items in favor of slowing down.  Lightening your self-imposed workload allows a spaciousness, a receptivity to a lovely detour or excursion, maybe even some play, spontaneity, or much needed rest.  Down time allows creativity, compassion, and curiosity to surface.  An added bonus is the time and hassle you’ll save not having to apologize or catch up!

How can you more deeply honor and enjoy the time you have?  How do you give yourself permission to relax, to rest, and to just be?

For those interested in applying Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure for this, I invite you to visit my recent post The Fear Masked By “Trying To” containing the relevant self-help holds.

Many people find recent world events hard to understand and even harder to digest. News, just like a novel or movie plot, tends to focus on conflict and tragedy since the audience finds it compelling and dramatic.

Robust immunity includes resilience as well as appropriate resistance. Ideally you want your immune response to appropriately scale to whatever stress arises.

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!
