Wisdom: When You Know What You Know

“Wisdom arises from experience, a deep heart, and willingness to learn. Add your maturity and inner knowing to spiritually nourish each creative moment.”*

Wisdom distills from intellect and knowledge, insight and awareness. Whenever you take action, you catalyze the potential for learning and evolution. Each leap supports the next, an unfolding into your wisest self.

Like many people, I learned to revere my intellect and discount the rest of my body-mind.

My professor father, teacher mother, computer scientist brother, and my own chemical engineering path all supported this. Yet now I muscle test to access knowing beyond my mental acuity. Our bodies provide a cellular knowing and wisdom the mind cannot.

Know what you know and what you don’t.

Often people discount their inner knowing which includes gut feelings, leaps of faith and trust, and spiritually guided insights. Information continuously floats through the river of life but you may discount it if your mind starts overthinking. Even your thorniest problem comes with a solution imbedded in you which awaits discovery. When you admit what you don’t know, you open yourself to new information and awareness.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure Safety Energy Locks (SELs) 10, 9, and 2, best known as key inhale supporters, also invite wisdom.

To develop wisdom, you must open to information, knowing, and life itself. You need room in your mind and heart for something fresh and new. As Zen Master Shunryo Suzuki stated, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” Releasing habitual, defensive thought patterns can restore awe, wonder, and surprise. Additional JSJ wisdom harmonizers include SEL 5 (fear less), 8 (magic in life), and 13 (deepest knowing).

When do you feel wise? How does it feel in your body?

*Wisdom quote from The Original Angel Cards Book by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.

From Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure, we know harmony begins with the breath. Balanced exhale and inhale, as well as other forms of giving and receiving, support health and awareness.

I learned meditation from my Zen Buddhist boyfriend in the early 1990’s. I learned to follow my breath, counting each inhale-exhale cycle up to ten, restarting the count if a thought arose.

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!
