“Truth is an unfolding process that deepens as your wisdom increases. Live in a way that fosters your enduring and direct encounter with life.”* Viewing life through the lens of Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure attitudes of Worry, Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Trying to (WFAST) undermines spiritual truth and harmony. As you develop a soul focus, your wisdom and grasp of truth evolve.

  • Worry projects you into a troubling future. You lie to yourself when you worry because you often create an improbable future in your mind. Plus playing difficult possible scenarios in your head doesn’t prevent them, it only prevents you from enjoying now.
  • The acronym False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR) speaks directly to how fear opposes truth. The fear “attitude” pertains to physical threats, both real and imagined. Phobias exaggerate fear to the point of outrageous falseness while still feeling real.
  • Anger reflects frustration with life. You lie to yourself when you expect or demand life or yourself or anyone else to be other than it is. Reality represents the truth.
  • Sadness suggests you can’t handle impermanence. Despite what you might tell yourself, resilience somehow appears when you need it. You may not want to go on and you may not enjoy it but you either have or shall find the tools you need to move forward.
  • Trying to or pretense mirrors your false self. Revealing your true self requires courage. The fundamental lie behind trying to asserts “I am not enough.” As you debunk this lie, pretense transforms into embracing your authenticity.

When you free yourself from attitudes, life feels lighter and more resonant. Truth does set you free. It empowers you to live in the moment and to embrace your soul expression in the world.

How do you embrace soul-level truth? What, if anything, do you have to give up to do so?

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!
