The Fear Fueling Anger

Do you struggle with anger?  In the healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® we learn fear is the real issue beneath the other attitudes of worry, anger, sadness, and “trying to.”  The fear associated with anger is fear you won’t get what you want.

What prevents you from getting what you want?  First, not knowing what you want.  You might stumble into something that aligns to you but until you are conscious of what you desire, it’s impossible to reliably draw what is most personally rich and resonant toward you.

Or maybe you get in your own way.  Either you don’t give yourself permission to have what you want telling yourself things like “I’m not important,” “Other people come first,” “To attend to my own wants and needs would be selfish,” or perhaps you constantly raise the bar on what you want leaving yourself perpetually dissatisfied and frustrated.

Or perhaps you feel others prevent you from getting what you want.  Fortunately or unfortunately, it’s always an inside job.  If you perceive people are in your way or thwarting you, it may be an opportunity for you to step into your own authority and power around your wants and needs.

So what is the antidote?  Pay attention to what you want and need, let yourself have it, and remember others aren’t responsible for your happiness, you are.  While you play with giving yourself more latitude to have what you want, you can hold your middle finger to harmonize the anger when it surfaces.  If you don’t know about holding your fingers for harmony, you can learn more by visiting my earlier blog post. Intense Emotions?

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!
