Since my father’s recent passing, my mother grapples with bill paying, grocery shopping, home maintenance, and getting gas, to name a few.  Since she lives in the Midwest of the U.S. and I live in Vermont, I help with physical matters during visits and financial ones as best I can remotely.  While part of me wants to bring short-term relief by taking on as much as I can for her, another more conscious part realizes over-involvement undermines us both.  I find it beneficial to ask what’s in her and my highest good when I need clarity on how to truly help.

Often clients report feeling burdened by helping others, especially family members.  The records consistently counsel not to give “at your own expense” meaning not to deplete yourself, emphasizing how your own health and well-being provide the foundation for your giving.  While extenuating circumstances may compel you to give beyond your normal comfort zone you must sustain yourself if you wish to help others effectively long-term.  This can particularly challenge anyone with discounted childhood wants, needs, and feelings.

It helps to tune into what you own around someone’s situation and to remind yourself everyone owns their own growth path.  Sometimes helping less ultimately helps more because it allows the person to master their challenges and build confidence.  If you frame it in terms of learning, what do each of you seek to develop, transcend, teach, and so on?  It helps to remember each of us elected a soul-specific curriculum when we incarnated.

Appropriate giving feels good, not burdensome.  Most people love to help when they can but giving can turn into resentment, exhaustion, and other negative conditions for both giver and receiver when it goes out of balance.

When does not helping or helping less arduously feel good?  Does saying no to excessive helping allow you to say yes to yourself?

This year I found my word of the year in my Akashic Records. It amuses me I sometimes forget I have this vast soul resource I can access whenever I want. This reminds me to stay present.

Like most people, I only take an extended rest when forced.

Many of my readers and clients learned to prioritize others over themselves. Even when offered assistance they may decline it, feeling they must sacrifice for the “greater good.” Yet sacrifice and greater good oppose each other.

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.


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!
