Having recently obtained my Access Consciousness Bars® Practitioner certification and previous to that in the last decade my Life Coach Certification, Diploma of Counselling and Level 2 Reiki Practitioner Certification I was going to jot down my thoughts on what I had found during the first half of 2017 and the road I am now on since finding the modality of Access Consciousness.
A link to the post below by Kerry Garner Venter came across my Facebook newsfeed this week sharing some of the reasons I have taken on a new modality. I hope you enjoy, I’ll see you at the end of her post.
People ask me this question all the time. In fact, I asked it myself when I first heard about the Bars.
At that time in my life I had already been ‘adorned’ as a Reiki Master since I was 16 years old, and had accrued so many healing modalities to count. I was certified in Magnified Healing using the Violet Flame, Neuro-Stress Release – which was an integrated healing and coaching
system that combined cranio-sacral healing with kinesiology, body talk and a few other things sprinkled in – as well as other more cognitive coaching/healing methodologies like the Demartini Method, NLP, Neuro Semantics etc., and so I really wanted to know how Access Bars would be different and not just another certification that I would learn and never be truly satisfied by. Maybe you can relate…How many healing modalities and self help strategies have you already tried that have left you still seeking more?
In my first class with Access Bars I sat there with all my pre-conceived judgments, conclusions, projections, expectations, about what it was, wasn’t, could be, couldn’t be and slowly but surely, with every use of the Access Clearing statement, all of that melted away and the space and consciousness that started expanding in my world was like magic. I knew that it was what I had been seeking and asking for but still had no clue how much of a continuous contribution to my life it would actually be and still is.
Everything I was hearing in the class it was like I already knew it; but it wasn’t from the limited place of my cognitive mind and reference points. It was from my capacity of knowing, which I soon discovered is very different and way more what is actually the place and space that we, as Infinite Beings, function from.
It’s not about you
One of the first places Reiki and other healing modalities differ from Access Bars is they don’t come from the point of view that I need to be the ‘healer’, conduit, channel who ‘does this thing’ to you. There’s nothing else you need to be, other than YOU! What gift are you already that you’ve never acknowledged?
There are no attunements required, no higher levels of consciousness that you need to reach or ascend to. All that is simply required is learning 32 points on the head that relate to different areas of life, that you lightly touch…and the rest happens on it’s own. There’s no intention you have to have, no healing you have to do, no symbol you have to draw or activate, nothing. All you have to do is be there to ‘run their bars’.
Once these Bars of energy (hence the name) are activated by your touch, they begin to dissipate all the electromagnetic charge that has been generated by all the thoughts, feelings, emotions, and points of views that person has related to the area of the Bar you are running. What this does is create space – space to create, to know, to be, to receive, and to perceive all the infinite possibilities, choices, and change that is actually available to you.
It’s about creating space – How much do you currently have?’
Creating space is one of the biggest benefits from running the Access Bars and you might be wondering what having space has to do with anything and why you would ever want to do such a thing.
Well, if we liken your mind to a tiny studio apartment in NYC and one day the Universe delivered this massive shipment of _____________(insert whatever you have been asking for), but there was no space for you to RECEIVE it…how bummed would you be?
In this reality, we are not taught or encouraged to receive. We are taught to be humble (not receive too many compliments), only receive certain energies from people that are ‘appropriate’, taught to put barriers up to avoid negative energy and on and on it goes. But receiving is another one of our innate capacities and if we expanded our capacity to receive ALL of life – without judgment – we would have ALL of what we truly desire with greater ease.
It’s about Gifting and Receiving – What are you refusing to receive that you could be choosing?
Oh but wait, there’s more. Not only is it about creating the space to receive more in your life, when you are the one running someone else’s Bars you also get to clear all the points of views and corresponding charges that you have in common with that person. How cool is that?!
Other modalities teach you that you can’t clear or change something in someone else unless you haven conquered/learned/overcome it yourself. That’s an interesting point of view. So does that mean you have to overcome cancer or abuse in order to be a contribution to someone else? That doesn’t sound like fun. What if just by being you, running someone’s bars for them, you knew you were being a greater contribution that if you were actually having to DO anything TO them?
How much easier and more empowering is that? How much more communion would people be more willing to be in with others, if they knew that by giving an Access Bars session, they too were receiving the change? How much superiority are some people operating from when they do ‘healing’ on you? Does that actually contribute and empower you to know what you know? What if receiving had nothing to do with someone else actually doing anything to you? Are you receiving the contribution that the sun is without it ‘doing’ anything other than just Being the sun?
So how else is it different to Reiki and other healing modalities?
Access Bars is also different from Reiki and other healing modalities in that it’s not about doing anything to you or anyone. It’s about dissipating all the electromagnetic charge that prevents you and others from Being all that you truly Be.
Reiki and many other modalities – are cool, can feel nice for a while – but their basis is not that you are an Infinite Being, with infinite possibilities and capacities – instead it’s about how to continue relating to this reality, instead of creating beyond it.
If you no longer had to relate to the world, in the way that you’re used to, what else would be possible?
We’re functioning from all the fixed point of view and relational reference points that, we don’t even like to be, want to be, but refuse to change, that if we chose to change it and BE something different, could give us everything we would love.
Everything you’re doing is relating to the world around you, not creating the world you could be creating.
Relationship is the distance between two objects. So everything that you are relating to in thoughts, feelings, emotions, and all other points of view that you relate to yourself and others and the world through, is what perpetuates the reality that you keep experiencing. Running Access Bars clears all of that so that you can literally BE, do and have something greater all the time and continuously create your own reality that actually reflects what you would like to choose, not what you think you have to choose. You can’t be relational and infinite at the same time. So when you start to run your own Bars and other people’s you dissipate everything that hasn’t allowed you to occupy that Infinite Space you actually BE.
What else would be possible for you with the gift of Access Bars?
What happens during a session?
Anything can show up when you have your Bars run. All you need to do is lie down comfortably and receive. Each of the 32 Bars of energy get ‘run’ for a few minutes at a time and while that occurs a multitude of things can occur or not – each person and session is different. People have experienced deep, profound relaxation, some have fallen fast asleep, some have laughed and giggled and had immense joy for the first time in a long time, others have cried, others have wiggled and shaken, and some have just lay there in stillness or conversation with me until the end. There’s no right/wrong; better/worse way to have a session.
The real gift is actually having or giving a session. Have you had one yet? Is now the time?

So! Does that resonate with you? Reading it was like taking the words in my head and placing them on the screen much more eloquently!!
The last time I posted on the blog was in January of this year. A lot has happened, the journey has certainly taken a few turns and what has come out of that is a new perspective, time to really look at what I love to do, who I love to work with and what my gorgeous clients want and need.
During that time I cemented my return to my admin and online marketing roots by adding in the Techy Mentor side. Not sure if I love or h*te that decision. I love supporting women entrepreneurs in learning, implementing and strategising. However, due to the nature of sessions it tended to bring up areas that are not something I love, which is the backend that leans towards nitty gritty stuff like IT support, programming, analytical and technical specifics. So Techy Mentor may not have been the best choice in name. Each session didn’t just cover walking through learning and implementing a new tool or strategy; limitations and self-worth came up a lot.
Still mulling that area over, but what has been an awesome ride is finding the tools of Access Consciousness. They fit beautifully with my business coaching and, with working with women entrepreneurs in really digging deep and following their heart in their businesses. I am, and have been for a while, been drawn back to working on the strategy and big picture in a more impactful way. I can even more so work with them on breaking through their limitations and tolerations that are hindering their journey to create massive change in their business and personal lives.
To Your Success
