The Fear Precipitating Sadness

From Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure we know the attitudes of worry, anger, trying to, sadness, and even total despondency originate from differing big fears.  In the JSJ model, sadness includes grief and guilt whereas depression falls under total despondency with a differing root cause.

Fear of impermanence underpins sadness in most cases, I learned in the Akashic Records.  While you know intellectually everything changes including your body, your friends, your family, even the Earth and the universe, it doesn’t mean you like it, especially when a change represents a loss.  You want the person back in your life, you wish you’d never said what you did, you want the fitness you once had, and so on.  Naturally most people want the “good” to last forever and hope the “bad” disappears.

So sadness protests reality, often fighting changes considered unacceptable or intolerable.  In these cases, sadness attempts to replace the present with the past.  Essentially it asks the world to stay static or at least for the enjoyable parts to remain unchanged.  Yet everything keeps changing despite your preferences.  Luckily even sadness itself changes over time.  Getting comfortable with change softens and dissipates sadness.

Do you find it comforting or disturbing knowing change permeates everything?  Do you fight some changes while welcoming others?  What do you tell yourself about change?

The Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help harmonizers for sadness are Safety Energy Locks 5 through 15, organ function self-helps Lung and Large Intestine, and the ring finger or “S” in WFAST.  You can gently hold the points for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths, for a fixed length of time, or until it feels done.

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!
