The Fear Creating Worry

Do you worry a lot?  If you’re a worrier, chances are you’re preoccupied and your mind won’t be still.  Behind worry is fear we won’t be able to cope with what life brings us.  So there are a couple big uncertainties involved here between what life might bring and how we’ll deal with it.

Of course we never know what might happen to us in life.  We’re all aware something horrible or wonderful could occur at any moment.  Life as we know it always has the potential to radically change.

What’s the best antidote to excessive worrying?  Narrow your focus down to what you can deal with now, the certainties in this moment.  Repeating this over and over you’ll move through life one manageable moment at a time and be more alive while doing it!  While you can usually cope with whatever is happening now, it’s impossible to deal with all the dire possibilities your mind can conjure.

It also helps to remember you’re not in charge.  You don’t make the sun rise and set, nor the tides go in and out, nor does your worrying alter what does or doesn’t happen.  Worry does distract you but it also distances you from life.

You can also apply Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure self-helps.  Harmonize worry by holding your thumbs and/or holding each of the Safety Energy Locks (SELs) from 1 to 4.  You can read more about finger harmonizing here:  Intense Emotions? Try WFAST-ing

All the SELs are illustrated here (when you mouse over them the location description pops up): Safety Energy Lock Diagram  As always with JSJ self-helps, you can gently hold the points for 36 out-breaths and in-breaths, for a fixed length of time, or until it feels “done.”

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!
