It’s about 2 years since I first found out about Access Consciousness – I came across something I had written in a journal, with the heading “6th December 2012. I’ve found Access Consciousness – how did I get so lucky?”
Funny that at some level I knew the amazing potential of Access Consciousness, before I even knew much about it! At another level, of course, this makes complete sense – often we do know when we find something that’s “us” ………..
During those first couple of months before I attended a “formal” Access Consciousness class, I was just using a couple of very simple questions – and I had a couple of my best ever months!!!!
One of the questions I was using is “What else is possible?” – and some of you who know me well, or have been reading my posts / newsletters will already know that this is one of my favourite questions – along with its “sister” questions of “What else is possible that we haven’t even considered yet?” or “What else is possible that we had decided was impossible?”
So, why is it that this simple question can bring so much expansion, joy, freedom, fun and yes possibility???
Gary Douglas, Founder of Access Consciousness, talks about how the question always empowers, and the answer dis-empowers.
And what does this actually mean?
Well, it can be the case that we go through life rather unconsciously – just assuming that things will be pretty much the same from one day to the next, or from one year to the next.
We may not particularly like our lives, or there may suddenly be a “crisis” in our lives, and we feel incapacitated, stuck and like we have no choice.
Asking this question “What else is possible here?” immediately changes something. We can think that nothing else is possible other than what we have created and brought into the world so far……and just asking this question allows in a possibility for something different.
Often when we ask a question, our cognitive mind then busys itself looking for an “answer.” So, we try to think of possibilities, and maybe become frustrated when we can’t think of something – or maybe go immediately to “well…..nothing else is possible here….it’s all rubbish and can’t be changed.”
The suggestion here is not to look for an answer – more to allow new awarenesses to come in. So, we ask “what else is possible?” and don’t go looking for anything. And if an awareness does come, it’s about saying thank you, and asking again “what else is possible?”
My experience of using this question when things are “hard” is that things start to open up. Glimmers of possibility and hope start to appear – I may have a sense of something a bit different, or I may receive a call from someone who can contribute to me or offer me a different perspective.
I also use this question a lot when things are “good.” So, when I receive a call from a new client, or when I enjoy a beautiful walk in the countryside, I just ask “And what else is possible?” This question alone is part of the reason my life has expanded so much in the last couple of years (and what else is possible, beyond what I have already?).
My sense is that when we ask this question, we already start to feel a bit better, as the energy expands. That feeling better in itself starts to attract better things for us. As well as all of this, it’s a message to the universe – universe, this is where I am, I’d like something more, please arrange it for me!
Really, it’s ask and you shall receive! What if the possibilities are infinite, and we only have to ask?
How would you like to have a play with this simple tool? See how you get on using it when things are good, when things are bad, actually all the time………………….let me know how you get on!
What else is possible, beyond what we had decided was possible?
