What is Access Bars?

Many people ask “What is Access Bars?” and answering that question can be challenging…..Access Bars is a gentle yet effective, hands on head body processes that can create change in the recipient that goes beyond Mindfulness, Beyond Healing and allows Stress to Melt away.

It’s weird, it’s wonderful and can be difficult to put into words!

So what is Access Bars? Everyone experiences something different and each time you have your Bars run can be a different experience again.

My first time of having my Bars run, I had no idea what they were!

I was at a conference in the city of Chicago USA and hanging out with a fun group of Americans. One evening the suggestion was:

“Let’s all go out for dinner and then run some Bars”

Being a Brit and brought up with the English Pub culture where pub crawls are familiar…. I thought it was just the American way of saying we’d be eating out for dinner, then going on a pub crawl!

…But what is Access Bars?

Did you know there are 32 points on your head which, when gently touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn’t allow you to receive? These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions and considerations that you have stored in any lifetime. This is an opportunity for you to let go of everything!

That’s one description of what Access Bars are.  It’s a nurturing, relaxing experience and can create change in any area of your life.

Access Bars (often simply called “The Bars”) is a dynamic hands on process.

Access Bars

It involves a practitioner gently touching various points on someone’s head. That’s called “running your Bars”. It’s done fully clothed and during a “Bars” session which usually takes about an hour, you are free to talk, snore, cry or laugh.

Especially laugh.

One of the side effects many people find after getting their Bars run is more JOYfulness.

But I’m sure nobody wants that.

Here’s a short video about Access Bars:

What if you could Clear out all the clutter from your mind and relax into a space so nurturing that all stress and tension melts away?

That’s what Access Bars are to me. Clearing the mental clutter.

Beyond Mindfulness

When you have your Bars run, it’s a way of dissipating all the “Gunk” that’s built up and got stuck anywhere in you physically, emotionally and beyond. Letting go of layers and layers of stuff that no longer serves you.

Quietening the monkey mind, dissolving the relentless mind chatter and creating a space of peace that’s deeply nurturing and expansive.

The action of running Bars creates space.

Space of clarity. Space to choose more of you.

It’s a powerful process and yet very gentle. So gentle that it’s wonderful as a treatment for children.  In fact, children are welcomed in Access Bars Classes and under 16yr olds can attend an Access Bars class for free and qualify as an Access Bars practitioner.

There’s a wonderful account on the Access Consciousness Blog about an Access Bars Facilitator who took the one day practitioner class to a school in India. You can read more about it here.

Created and developed by Gary Douglas and Dr Dain Heer, there are many accounts of how The Bars has changed lives around the world and a recent scientific study shows remarkable results:

The Effects of Access Bars on Depression & Anxiety

In fact, it was through being in a state of such deep depression that Dr Dain Heer was considering suicide when he first discovered The Bars.  This video Gary and Dain share Dain’s story in a video that they made to share the Bars with people around the world on Suicide Awareness day here:

When people ask “What is Access Bars?”, you could say that The Bars begins the process of being able to receive.

When receiving a Bars Session, you can be sitting or lying down and it’s your opportunity to really melt into this wonderful experience and simply relax and receive.

Gary and Dain have a podcast radio show where they offer verbal processes and take live questions on a weekly basis. In this episode, the very first recording of their show, they talk about the beginning of Access Consciousness and Access Bars.

People often ask where Access Bars comes from.  They first came into the world in the 1990s and there’s more about the very beginnings in this blog post HERE

When people ask “What is Access Bars and what can it do for me?” there are so many different areas that Access Bars can create change, including reducing pain in the body, changing things that were previously considered to be unchangeable.

Bizarrely, One way to explain it is by asking questions…

Do you remember the last moment in your life when you were totally relaxed and nurtured and cared for? 

Or has it been a little too long since you received healing and kindness without any judgment of your body or your being?

These questions give you a sense of the energy, space and consciousness that’s available to you when you have your Bars run.

Access Consciousness have a powerful selection of tools of which, The Bars is the core and others include:

Questions

Choice

Possibilities

Contribution

And NO JUDGEMENT.

What would it be like if you could just lay there… and let someone else do all the work?

The Magic Of Being In Allowance

The Space of Being in Allowance for Other People’s Choices

There are so many amazing tools in Access Conscious that have and continue to help me in every area of my life and I am hugely grateful for that.

The tool I’m going to talk about today is:

The Magic Of Being In Allowance of other people’s choices

I used to find it so easy to see where other people were getting it wrong.

I’d see what’s stopping them, what’s holding them back, what’s causing them pain and want to jump in and help them.

I’d want to take the pain away, remove the blockages – rip away boulders with my bare hands if necessary – so they could move more freely into where they said they wanted to go.

Especially when it came to my kids.

Even after they’d grown into independent adults, I’d still be doing my best to help them make the right choices.

If they ran out of money, I’d pay their way, lend them money I didn’t have and do my best to take away their pain.

That’s a mother’s job, isn’t it?

There was no question in my world.

When I went to my first Foundation Class and learnt about how everything is choice.

Even the crap that shows up.

And how no matter what is showing up in someone’s life, on some level they have chosen it.

My Noble intentions to save everyone in the world, I discovered, was making myself the saviour and them the helpless victim… otherwise known as Superior Bitch behaviour.

Me trying to take their problems away for them, no matter how noble my intentions (or how superior I was being) without their invitation or consent.. was not a contribution to them.

What if they weren’t wrong or broken for choosing what they’d chosen?

What if they’ve created it in their lives for a purpose that had nothing to do with me?

Often in the past I’d do everything I could to take away another person’s problem, even at great cost to me in time, health, energy or money (or all of the above)… only to discover they’d re-created the problem, pain or burden in a different way.

Whatever was showing up in their lives was theirs and it was also their choice to change it and choose beyond.

Not my business.

Not my problem.

Even if I cared deeply about them.

I had to learn about being in allowance of their choices.

Even if their choices led to illness and even death.

Their life. Their choice.

I could ask them questions.

I could invite them to a different possibility.

But I couldn’t be vested in the outcome.  I couldn’t make them choose what I wanted for them, what I thought was right for them.

I had to be in allowance of them and their choices.

It didn’t mean I had to like their choices.

It didn’t mean I had to stick around them or be a doormat while they made their choices.

All I had to do was be in allowance of their choices.

I had to let go of my judgement that they were making the wrong choice.

I had to let go of my judgement that they needed to make the right choice.

I had to let go of my projections and expectations of what I wanted for them or the so much more that I knew they were capable of.

I had to lower my barriers.

I had to stop resisting and reacting to their choices.

Or aligning and agreeing with everyone who made them wrong.

It was a totally different way of being for me.

At first being in allowance was haaard.

I wanted so much more for them than they seemed to want for themselves and it felt like I was abandoning them and being a bad person for not jumping in and helping.

It went against everything I’d always believed in to step back, let go of all of the above, hold the space of allowance and simply ask questions.

Yet in that space of allowance I discovered a strange kind of magic.

My being in allowance instead of trying to “fix” things was an honouring of them.

A recognition and acknowledgement that they had the power in their lives.

That they could use their power (choice) to stay as they were or change their situation, at any time and in any way they chose.

Being in Allowance created space for new possibilities.

Especially with my children.

It’s created a space of ease with my children where they get the sense that I really do have their back, regardless of what they choose.

They don’t have to get it right.

They don’t have to have or be or do anything that they think I think they should do.

No hidden agendas or underlying emotional blackmail. Totally unconditional relationship. Space of Allowance.

And it’s made my life easier too.

Now that I’m no longer trying to carry everyone else’s burdens and take on everyone’s problems, my life has lightened up and there’s room for more fun and laughter and more of me.

Especially when I’m willing to be in Allowance of me too.

How does it get any better than that?
