By Shivi Verma November 2013 A simple technique called Access Consciousness is transforming lives across the world. Shivi Verma interviews its founder, Gary Douglas Gary Douglas: Bringing consciousness to the world Our greatest challenge is possibly the other person. Locked in our own egoic space, we react, we doubt, we distrust and we judge. All the time. And these judgments create a network of fearful thoughts that block universal bounty from entering our lives. Therefore, if we can create a space of fullness, contentment and completeness within ourself, the need to judge will drop. The moment this happens, fear leaves, relaxation sets in and universal gifts begin to effortlessly pour into our life. But is it so simple to achieve this state of being? Yes, says Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness, which claims to cut short the arduous journey to Higher Consciousness to a matter of an hour. US-based Gary stumbled upon this technique 25 years ago, when he was guided to discovering certain points on the skull which, on touching gently, dissolved past conditionings at lightning speed. He calls them bars. Pressing these points delete cell memories stored since lifetimes. This releases you to create the life of your choice. Ever since Access Bars entered India a couple of years ago, it has spread like wildfire. There are more than 350 Access Bars practitioners in Mumbai alone, all of who are busy holding classes and treating people. Access Bars phrases like “How does it get better than this?” or “Who does this belong to?” are becoming part of mainstream lingo. Says Raaji Raaman, an Access Bars practitioner, “I have been into meditation and other spiritual modalities for the past few years. When I got into Access, I was looking for good health and an expanded consciousness. But as a side-effect, I have been enjoying harmonious communion with everybody around me, ever since I have stepped out of my reaction. I am also enjoying great health and energy.’ Says Kashmira Elavia, another practitioner, “For quite some time a friend had above Rs four lakh stuck in a bad investment. Though the investing party promised to return the sum, they were not even returning his calls. I told him to use Access Bars. Two days later, he called me and said they had reimbursed him in full, and even apologised for the delay.” Encouraged by the huge response, Gary Douglas is visiting India in November to hold classes on how to achieve divorceless relationships. He talks about his discovery in an email interview with Life Positive. What is this consciousness that you say can be accessed by running the bars? What we have are thoughts, feelings and emotions that we have been sold as truth; what we have available, though, is consciousness. It’s not about what other people see as true but about what is true for you. Would you be willing to have an awareness of what is true for you? And not how you fit into everybody else’s universe and reality? How and when did you discover it? Was it something intuitive? How did you know what purpose it would serve? I channelled the Bars 25 years ago while I was living in Santa Barbara. I was given the information about the points, and what they created. I knew from then that the Bars would create more consciousness in people and in the world, and that’s why I did it. Is it any different from the way seekers and sages have always attempted to reach the state of super consciousness? The only difficulty is that the things we’ve all tried to do, haven’t really worked that well. So we really need to be willing to look for something new. Because unless we look to that which goes beyond everything we know, we will not find that which will give us the freedom we’re looking for. You say you had success, houses, cars and money, but you were dissatisfied until you discovered Access. What has this discovery done for you? It has changed my whole life. Made me happy at all times. It has given me a space where I can constantly create. A constant space of the possibilities that is ever present in the world, and which I always knew existed, but never seemed to be able to achieve. How long does one have to practise Access tools to permanently be in the state of non-judgment? There is no permanent state of non-judgment, there is only choice. Nothing is permanent; the only permanence is change. So you have to be willing to constantly choose to not judge, and not be judged. What is a body class in Access Consciousness? How do you explain reincarnation on the basis of Access? The Access Consciousness body class is where you get to acknowledge the gift that your body is, and begin to open up to capacities within your body that you never even knew you had available. There are body processes that change things within your body Not only do their bodies change, but so do their entire lives. Reincarnation is absolutely a reality, the difficulty is that we can either use what we were in other lifetimes as a justification for what we are not doing today, or seeing that a different possibility could be available if we choose it. What would it be like if we recognised the choice we actually have, instead of acting as if we’re stuck, based on some karma from some other lifetime that we didn’t even choose? You use a clearing statement which goes: Good and bad, right and wrong, POC and POD, all nine, shorts, boys and beyond. What does it mean and how is it supposed to help people? The clearing statement accesses all the energies that hold limitation in place. It is designed to bypass your logical mind and go straight to the illogical mind, the insane mind, that’s currently running your life. If your mind could figure everything out, wouldn’t it have done so already? The clearing statement clears what is keeping you stuck and it creates huge freedom for people who have tried to change an area of their life and not been able to. Is it true that Access Consciousness deals with entities? Entities are part of everything that is included in this universe. This is about getting you to the place where you can get rid of the entities that are stopping you, how to get rid of the demons that other people wish to put on you, and how to change and create a different possibility that you’re truly capable of. How is Access different from other modalities? Come and experience the difference that Access Consciousness is for yourself. What do you mean by Divorceless Relationships? What if relationships were something you could have as an expansion of you rather than a lessening of you? Where have you been functioning from? Have you been functioning from the greatness you can be? Have you been functioning from the greatness of a relationship? A relationship should not be anything other than something that adds to your life. It should not be something that takes away any part of you. Why are you specifically bringing this class to India? I see all kinds of people in India who are constantly in a state of trying to get along in a relationship that is not working rather than seeing how to change it so it can work. They’re always trying to fix their relationships, or fix what they think is the problem rather than asking, “What can be changed?” which would actually handle the situation. How do we become more conscious in our everyday relationships with people, work, money, career, or body? By questioning everything. A question empowers; an answer disempowers. So if you’re in a constant state of question, then you’re in a constant state of creation and a constant state of possibility. Only if you go from that will you create a place where everything in the universe can help you. A question empowers the universe to give you an answer. Why do you think Access Bars has worked so well in India so far? The thing about the Access Bars is that they are like deleting files in your computer bank so that everything you do becomes more in present time; it becomes more now, and more real. So, if you start to function from that, you are capable of creating your life instead of functioning from limitations and judgments. What is your message to the world? My message to the world is that unless we get to the place where we’re willing to be stewards of the Earth, and stop using it and abusing it, we will destroy it, and in doing so, destroy our home.
