I will say something later on about the “mechanics” of how the bars works – but I thought I’d start with saying a bit about how I feel I have changed in the time I have been receiving the bars most weeks.
By the time I came to Access Consciousness and the bars, I had used energy healing, reiki healing and the Emotional Freedom Technique to recover from serious chronic fatigue illness. I felt really well and happy – but also with a sense that there could be more……..
So, over the last eight months, my level of happiness and joy have increased hugely. My creativity has increased – I am so full of ideas for my life, and for the healing work I do. Those of you who have been reading my newsletter for longer will probably have noticed that I am doing more and offering more different types of events – and that’s only a fraction of the ideas I have in my head!
I am not procrastinating (aagh! – I hate that word even!) In the past, I had many days where I would sit down at my computer, having a clear idea of what I wanted to do that day, and realise at the end of the day that, whilst my Facebook status may be uptodate, I hadn’t accomplished even one of the things I wanted to. This has completely transformed for me now – I can sit down at the beginning of the day, decide what I want to do and then do it with ease and speed!
I am more confident communicating about the healing work I do, and am finding ways of explaining it that are more accessible to people. In the last couple of months, I have written magazine articles, given several radio interviews and talks to an ME society and a Women’s Institute group.
I also feel that more and more things are coming into my life that I am really loving.I am meeting more and more people who are interested in what I call “Conscious Vitality” – yesterday I even discovered that I live 4 doors away from someone who was at a dance festival last month! And I was delighted at the number of people who came to the Access Consciousness weekend in Hebden Bridge at the beginning of August. And I suppose I also feel that more and more of the things I’d like in my life are possible, which feels very exciting!
So, those are some of the ways things have changed for me. And actually it’s these recent changes, beyond the obvious recovering from serious chronic illness that prompted me to rename the work I do – Conscious Vitality Now. For me, this reflects the massive potential of energy work to transform and bring in every increasing joy.
You may be wondering how all this stuff about procrastination and creativity relate to you and your issues. Well, for me, that’s the area of my life that I need to change at the moment, and so that’s where the bars is helping me. For those of you who are ill, it will help to release what’s keeping you stuck in illness. For people with low mood or stress, it will work on that. Basically, it just helps to unlock where you’re stuck in yourlife..
And how does it work? In the bars healing, the practitioner gently holds 32 points on the head that relate to different areas of our lives (for example, the body, our hopes and dreams, money, sex, healing). By holding these points, we release all the things in these areas that no longer serve us.
It’s as though we are functioning on out of date programmes – and as we release these, we begin to feel more alive, more vital, more well and more happy, and our lives really start to change.
I’m really keen to continue to make this transformative process available to people, so in October I will be offering short taster sessions in Hebden Bridge, as well as a chance to receive longer sessions at a reduced rate in Hebden Bridge, Manchester and Leeds.
I will also be offering day long trainings where you can learn the bars healing – and the great thing about doing the one day training is that all these benefits are even more available to you and other people in your life. (You can read more about this here, including the next dates I am offering these transformative days.)
After you have received the training, you can use this powerful tool on your friends and family (children love it too, and really benefit from it), include it in what you offer to clients if you are already a therapist, or even start a bars healing practice, whatever your background.
And if you have ME / CFS, and are well enough to learn it yourself and participate in swaps, that would really help in your recovery journey as you’d be able to receive the bars very regularly and easily. Or if there’s someone in your life who would be willing to learn and then give you regular sessions, that could again be incredibly helpful for you. They’d benefit too – see what I say in the next paragraph!
You can also become part of the growing network of people around the world who are meeting up to exchange the bars healings. This is how I have been able to receive so many bars sessions over the last months – and I’d love it if there were more people both in the Hebden / Manchester / Leeds areas and actually all over the world, wherever you are, who are able to give this amazing healing.
