Yield to the Present

If we teach what we need to learn, in time I’ll become a master teacher of yielding and surrender.  I continue seeing how my intellect, intuition, intensity, and vast life tool set cannot force a shift in my current situation.  I comfort myself knowing the real problem arises from believing I shouldn’t have this experience.

While I aim to generously accept bad days, embrace down time and play, and embody balance, I fall short repeatedly attempting to alter reality.  In this process, I must become more humble, acquiesce to divine forces, and accept how my efforts and the non-acceptance driving them often create limitations rather than clearing them.

Befriend yielding.  While yielding, you unreservedly open to the present and stop sinking more deeply into the quicksand struggling against unchangeable reality.  If you face something you feel you can’t stand ask yourself who can’t stand it.  The small self, or ego, hates human frailty and wants to end uncomfortable experiences as quickly as possible, thank you very much.  Embody the compassionate awareness who observes the struggling.  Be kind where you feel tender and vulnerable.

Unclench your fingers and your mind while dropping your shoulders.  With practice hopefully you can: Step into the divine embrace and receive unconditional love.  Become increasingly open-hearted.  Accept guidance as needed.  Focus on what you want.  Invite more of what feels good.  Move toward lighter and easier.  Engage with the present moment as much as possible.  Know every experience sculpts and hones you.

Can you yield or do you fight it?  How do you step into it?  Does yielding to life make you feel stronger or weaker?

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.

With every thought you have, word you speak, and action you take, you obey something or someone. When you obey yourself and not external authority or outdated beliefs, your true self is the part of you in charge.

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!
