Your Relationship to Immunity

When you develop immunity to something, you learn to tolerate it.  I used to think physical immune challenges generally arose from an inability to mount a sufficient defense to stress, invaders, etc. but I’ve since learned more often it results from over-responding, when a flood of large immune cells rush to the impacted area, causing pain and inflammation.  With optimal immunity you don’t overreact physically, mentally, or emotionally.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu® Japanese acupressure, Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 3 relates to immunity.  This SEL acts as a natural antibiotic and also addresses anything related to the immune system including autoimmune disorders and allergies, two examples of the body’s overreaction.  If I apply a fifteen to twenty minute SEL 3 self-help on each side when I first feel a cold or sore throat, I usually avoid getting sick.  When applying the self-help for sore throats, I actually feel them disappear one side at a time!  Note: always hold the same side SEL 15 simultaneously with SEL 3 (cross your arm across your body to reach the 3, no crossing for the 15) to release any stuck SEL 3 energy down the front of your body to prevent headaches.

Safety Energy Lock 3 supports healthy relationships.  In JSJ, you (1) and I (also 1) equals we (3).  In other words, a relationship adds up to more than what the two components bring.  The “you” could be a person or environmental toxins, your diet, stress, or debilitating emotions, for example.  How you respond to your “exposure” interpersonally or otherwise, meaning your relationship to it, constitutes your immunity or resilience.  No wonder a sense of community increases longevity.

Physical immunity keeps illness at bay.  Mental and emotional immunity harmonize relationships.  All receive support from the 3’s, which also enhance vitality.  How do you reduce your reactivity to people, places, things, germs, or anything else you encounter?  What helps support your resilience?

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!
