Dear Ilham,
I sometimes forget what a gift the Access Bars are. I don’t know if it’s because they are so simple or because they were the first thing I learned in Access Consciousness. Yet sometimes I’ll go for days feeling slightly off kilter, before realizing I just may need my bars run. And usually, within that next hour or two, the pain in my body or funk in my universe pretty much melts away.

Did you know that Access Bars are being run on the Gaza Strip for soldiers? They are in prisons, in refugee camps, at after school centers, in an insane asylum and in hundreds of thousands of houses across 171 countries. And the stories that come back are truly beautiful!

One soldier recently exclaimed, “I couldn’t stop thinking … Now I can’t think of nothing, my mind is empty. Wow, such a nice silence.”

If you know how to run the bars … is your body asking for more?

If you’ve never had your bars run … would you like to gift yourself that space?

What if a lot of the chatter in your mind or the dis-ease in your life wasn’t even yours? I’ve been finding lately that sometimes it is the simple things that are most effective. I am oh so very grateful for the simplicity, the possibility and the elegance that has been added to my life by Access Bars.

If you have a story you would like to share about having your bars run we would love to hear it! Email.

Global Access Bars

A Very Special Class with Gary Douglas, starts November 26


What would it be like to receive in a totally different way?

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?

What if what we’re supposed to be all the time is happy and joyful?

‘All of life comes to me with Ease, Joy & Glory!’ is the mantra of Access Consciousness and is about all of life, the good, the bad and ugly coming to you with no effort (Ease), the ability to be at peace with what is occurring (Joy) and exuberant expression and abundance (Glory). This is what the Access Bars invites you to.

The Access Bars points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions and considerations you have stored in any lifetime. This incredibly nurturing and relaxing process undoes the limitations, discord and disharmony in all aspects of your life that you are willing to change. Each Access Bars session can release 5-10 thousand years of limitations in the area of your life that corresponds with the specific Bar being touched.

The Access Bars have assisted tens of thousands of people worldwide to change many aspects of their body and their life including sleep, health and weight, money, sex and relationships, anxiety, stress, disabilities and so much more.

Join Gary Douglas, the Founder of Access Consciousness, on November 26, 2014 (or Nov 25 depending on where you are in the world!) for a very special 1 Day class that is being broadcast worldwide via livestream from Australia. Welcome to the party of consciousness!

Are you ready for a totally new way of traveling? There are certain things that can be unlocked and accessed differently in different parts of the world. And, each class in Access Consciousness has a unique transformative energy that facilitates change in present time with what is currently going on in the world.

“All at the same time I felt connected to everything, to everyone on the phone, to the molecules that were all around me and to everyone in the world. It was like being able to invite everyone in the world to the vibration of oneness.”—Stephanie

Tool of the Month


At the beginning of the Access Bars Class manual is a section entitled “BHCEEMC,” where the body is described. Is there more to your body than you currently realise?

BHCEEMC is an acronym for:

Bodies – everything from the neck down
Heads – everything from the neck up
Countenances – everything we show the world and everything we hide
Endowments – what we come into life with
Endeavors – all that we believe we have to do, to prove we exist
Matrices – the illusion of realities that we like and buy into
Categoricals – every way we categorize and prove the rightness of our points of view
Would you like to find out more about your body, with Access Bars? Gary Douglas, who discovered the bars, invites you to greater freedom and possibility with your body, no matter where you are in the world, via his live-streamed class. Find Out More.

Kids Class in Perth. Gary Douglas!

Would You Teach a Fish to Climb a Tree? September 18

This class, based on the book by the same name, is designed to create the space that allows you and the children in your life to have much greater ease in all areas from communication to behavior, confidence to joy, and much more. We invite you to empower your children to access the gifts and capacities they have and to create what they’re truly capable of.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”—Albert Einstein

Acknowledging their infinite capacity to perceive, know, be and receive is the single most important thing that you, as a parent or a teacher, can do to assist them to access their talents and capacities. This is especially true for kids with autism, OCD, ADD, ADHD and all of those other labels, because they have special gifts.

Life and Living

5 Things I Thought I Could Never Change… that Did! by Blossom Benedict

I get asked a lot, “What is Access Foundation and Level 1?” It’s not the easiest question to answer. It’s a bit like having the foundation of your entire reality rewritten. And like being handed the manual to magical living you wish you’d been given on your 6th birthday.

At my first Foundation and Level 1 class I was so confused as to why my facilitator was challenging things that were true. The answer is, because they weren’t necessarily true! They were simply what I was certain of or had bought or believed in my whole life. And many of those beliefs and assumptions were wildly limiting what I could create! I was, honestly, quite flabbergasted to find out that these were not just my lot in life, but were actual creations and choices that were malleable and changeable. What a gift!

I’d like to share with you “5 Things I Thought I Could Never Change… that Did!” More at my Blog (be warned, this blog is filled with other radio shows, blogs and goodies!)


Want to find out what others were gifted by their Foundation and Level 1 classes? Watch this super duper fun and smile inducing video about it! I invite you to join me for Foundation and Level 1 class in New York September 26-30 for an adventure in magic with these special tools…or find a facilitator in your own area!

I wonder what these classes might shift for You that you are certain are unchangeable?

Brilliance Unleashed

Are you ready to be the star of your own life?


What would it be like to be totally comfortable, compelling and present in front of a group of any size? What would it be like to share your message and voice with the world without any judgment of you? What would it be like if you had the freedom to make mistakes, be silly, or even more terrifying, be brilliant in front of others?

Right Voice For You is a workshop which uses tools and processes to assist people (singers, business people, house wives, writers, actors, plumbers…) with finding and sharing their voice with the world! The beauty of these tools is you don’t have to know what’s keeping you stuck. You don’t have to know why things aren’t working; you just have to be willing to consider a different possibility.

From Sep 28 – Oct 5 Right Voice For You will be taking a tour around the world with a whole week of tasters being offered by Right Voice Taster Facilitators globally. You can check it out at

You can also join Blossom Benedict, the leading lady of Right Voice for You, for a Right Voice Intensive in Chicago, USA on Oct 10-12. Find Out More!

Access Consciousness Publishing

1 Year Anniversary of Pragmatic Psychology!


Your difference, your craziness, your happiness!

Do you celebrate your difference? Or have you spent your life trying not to be made wrong, but never fitting in anyway? In her book, Pragmatic Psychology, Susanna Mittemaier offers you practical tools for being crazy happy, despite whatever diagnosis you have been given.

“Every time I hear or read something about Susanna, I am blown away! Pragmatic Psychology is one of the most gratifying books one could read. I was a psychology major in college and learned that psychology is the study of knowing, only to discover that it had been changed over the years to be the study of how to make people behave. This book returns us to the basis of psychology, the return to knowing and awareness. If you ever doubted yourself you will be glad that you found this book.”—Gary Douglas, Founder of Access Consciousness

This month, Pragmatic Psychology is celebrating its one-year anniversary and we are about to publish it in German. Please join me in congratulating Susanna on her success and all that is to come! What else is possible? Susanna, we are so glad you are in the world. Thank you for You!

Access Consciousness Publishing is releasing several new titles in the coming months, including Having Your Cake And Eating It Too by Margaret Braunack, a new edition of Prosperity Consciousness by Chutisa & Steven Bowman, and the eagerly anticipated Salon Des Femmes by Gary Douglas.

The Creative Edge of Consciousness

Possibilities of Dreams, by Lauren Marie


As I listened to this month’s call, one question stood out boldly. “At what age did you give up your dream?” Wow!

I realize that at age 6, I gave up being a ballet dancer. At age 20, I gave up being a painter. At age 22, I gave up my future aspirations in order to get married. There almost seems to be a different dream I lost at every age! What about you Ilham? How many dreams you know are possible have you given up because someone told you you can’t have it?

In case you think the Creative Edge is just for “beginners,” this month our members were the very first to hear about “mixed commital obligations,” “incarcerations” and “auto responder systems.” If you are going, “Say whaaaa?” It’s time to join the club!

Here’s a brilliant 8 minute audio clip from this month’s call!

Did You Know That …?

Access Bars are Working in the Gaza Strip


Several Access Bars practitioners travelled to the Gaza Strip 3 weeks ago, to meet people living in Netivot, a town very near the Israel border; they have suffered more than 13 years from rackets shots. They spent lots of time, space and energy in shelter.

A sweet 6 year old girl, Lihi, didn’t want to step out from under the stairs where she felt most secure. They sent the army psychologist to talk with her. I ran her bars and Lihi start laughing when I touched the “Joy” point, telling me she recalled being a fairy and how fun it was. An old lady, Mazal suffered from pains and after running her bars she just started dancing. It was so cool!

After than we went to meet the soldiers who had just arrived from Gaza in tanks! We could see the sand on their bodies; their eyes gave us a clue of what they’ve been through. We are talking about 20 year-old boys who finished high school just a year ago, that had to face many not so easy situations. They were talking about the thoughts and memories that keep running in their heads. These are some of their comments after they received Access Bars, “I couldn’t stop thinking, now I can’t think of nothing, my mind is empty. Wow! Such a nice silence.” ” What did you do that I feel like, after having a hangover from drinking lots of alcohol, I am more relaxed now?” “I feel more me than before.”

The Access Israel group is offering free sessions to the soldiers and half price for their family. How does it get any better than that? What else is possible to free the body/mind in the region? We felt such a gratitude for the opportunity to contribute. Hope this helps for expanding consciousness. Xxx, Erella.

The Elegance of Living

By Christopher Hughes


After a recent talk on the Elegance of Living, a young man brought me a ring that he wanted information about. As soon as I laid eyes on the ring, I knew exactly what it was. Oddly, I had only ever seen synthetics in estate jewellry before, but this was so unlike any other stone in colour, I knew instantly. It could only be a natural Alexandrite.

As soon as I could I took the ring to a well-respected gemologist and valuer. At first glance he said, “Nice Sapphire, Chris.” I could tell by his tenor that he knew I didn’t think it was a sapphire. “Look,” he said, “I’m sick of everyone off the street walking up to my desk to tell me they have a real Alexandrite. Let’s just put this under my scope and I will show you that is a garden variety Queensland sapphire.”

The momentum of his rant ceased the moment he put the ring under his scope. “Oh” he said with a pause, “Well, it’s certainly a very nice chrysoberyl.” I was trying not to be smug and crow with my remarks, “How interesting. Isn’t Alexandrite in the same family of stones?” With a rye grin he added, “Indeed it is Chris and I stand corrected. You have here a genuine Alexandrite stone with some real age to it.”

These rare stones were found circa1830 in the Russian emerald mines and named for Prince Alexander, the day he came of age. They were so prized for their unique characteristic color that they were soon mined out of existence. A fine example of the past becoming a future commodity, as the value of these stones escalates in rarity and price.

Ed. View more pictures of this beautiful Alexandrite ring at the Antique Guild’s website, and read Chris’s blog article “A Gem Fit for a Prince.”

Beyond Saying Thank You

Empowerment Channel, Voice America Radio


There is something about the topic of gratitude, of going beyond saying thank you, that creates magic! Gary Douglas says gratitude is the source of magic. When you are totally and utterly grateful, anything is possible! How does it get any better than that?

“One of my favorite shows was with Blossom Benedict Vanderpol on Curiosity and Wonderment. I got how when I function from the energy of wondering and being curious, I step into space I didn’t even know existed … really beyond … and that’s where the fun starts.”—Host, Anne Maxwell

We’ve had shows specifically on gratitude—it seems as if it’s a topic that never ends—and many other topics with amazing guests, including Gary Douglas, Diva Diaz, Pam Houghteling, Donnielle Carter and Megan Hill, to name just a few.

At Voice America Radio you can listen to any past shows, and to call in to future shows! We’d love to hear you!

The Approval Trap

By Gary Douglas

Were you taught to seek the approval of others? Have you ever felt that you couldn’t be “OK” unless some outside source validated you? This is the approval trap, and I’ve seen it limit or destroy the lives of many amazing beings who didn’t know that just being them was the greatest gift they could give the world!

Approval seeking is based on the idea that someone else’s judgment of what we should be or do or look like has value. Why would you think it had value? How far from knowing what is true for us do we have to go to make someone else’s judgment greater than ours? Most people seek approval in order to fit in, or simply because no one told them there was another way. I have a friend who was overweight from an early age. She talks about how she used approval seeking as a challenge or test to others. Will you like me in spite of my body size? Will you be my friend no matter how bad I look? Notice that there was already a judgment there that there was something wrong with her and her body. As she began to come out of judgment of herself and her body, she began to lose the extra weight without any effort. It was actually the judgment behind the approval seeking that kept the weight on.

Another common target for approval seeking is to be seen as the “good” girl or boy. This often develops at an early age when children are vulnerable to their parent’s comments, demands and even punishments. Did you decide that being “good” was the only way to survive? Or perhaps that it could save you a lot of trouble and get you some goodies? Most of us made choices like that just because it seemed like the easiest and smartest thing to do. And it might have been at the time. The difficulty with adjusting ourselves so that we can gain approval is that we lose track of who we really are, and seeking approval always requires the seeker to contract and contort themselves into something they are not. What was a good strategy as a child might not be serving you now …

Who Am I Being Right Now? by Anne Maxwell


This is a tool that’s useful any time you or your kids become upset or emotional about something. You simply ask, “Who am I being right now?” Then ask, “And, if I were being me, who would I be?” You don’t have to have an answer for who you are being. Just ask the question. You will have the awareness that you are not being you, and that’s enough to shift into a different space.

It’s a great tool to use with your kids when they are throwing a tantrum or doing trauma and drama. When you ask your child mid-tantrum, “Who are you being right now?” they might yell at you. But they will have the awareness that they are not being themselves, and this awareness will make it more difficult to continue the tantrum with the same gusto.
