Frequently Asked Questions about The Bars...
What are “The Bars”?
The Bars are a series of 32 points on the head, which when lightly touched release energy stuck in the brain and the body, allowing for tremendous and easy change.
What does a Bars session do?
“Running” the Bars takes all the considerations, thoughts, feelings, emotions, decisions, judgments, and beliefs from any lifetime that are electrically stored in the brain and releases them. This release occurs when the Bars are touched, which allows the stored electromagnetic charge to be released.
Similar to when the lights go out in your house and you flip the circuit breaker to turn the lights back on, having your Bars run allows your lights to come on. The energy of the universe becomes available to you and this often results in more peace, ease, joy and glory in life.
Several doctors who are experts in biofeedback have reported changes in brain waves going from beta to much more relaxed theta waves in the course of a one-hour session. Luckily for us, Access has known for years that running the Bars changes the electrical function of the brain.
What can you expect after receiving the Bars?
Every Bars session is different. The worst that can happen after a Bars session is you feel as relaxed as if you had received a great massage. The best that can happen is your whole life can change.
Among the most commonly reported effects are an increased sense of peace and ease, being less reactive to situations which might have upset you in the past, more restful and deep sleep and feeling that whatever was upsetting before the session doesn’t matter any more.
How long does the effect of a Bars session last?
Once you have your Bars run, the Bars continue to release stuck energy forever. Each time you have your Bars run after that, the effect becomes more exponential and dynamic. The most dramatic effects tend to be noticed within 3-4 weeks of the session.
How often should you have your Bars run?
This is entirely up to you. How good would you like to feel? How easy would you like your life to be?
Some Bars Practitioners wonder why we don’t all do it every day! Most like to have their Bars run at least once a week, or whenever they feel stressed, cranky, or frustrated with something. After any kind of major shock, trauma or energetic shift of any kind is another time to consider having your Bars run.
Who can benefit from having their Bars run?
Everyone who is willing to lie still for it! Some people may not value the experience of relaxation and consider it a waste of time, and other people who have an interest in changing and improving their lives may be keener. We recommend concentrating your “bars running” efforts on the latter group.
Can children and babies have their Bars run?
Children and babies benefit phenomenally from having their Bars run. They are more like animals than adults, which means they are often more willing to have rapid change in their bodies as well as in their being.
It should be noted that children's Bars can run very fast. Often they can tell you when each Bar is done for that session and when to move on, and babies are even faster!
Can children learn to run Bars?
Absolutely! Because children have fewer considerations about what is possible and impossible, they can run the Bars with very potent effects and less limitation. Children may be in small bodies, but they are often willing to be larger and more potent than the adults around them. Have you ever seen a child who commands the attention of everyone in the entire room?
Who can run Bars for others?
Anyone can learn to run the Bars. No previous experience in health care or training in anatomy or massage is required! All it takes is a willingness to learn and attending a one-day Bars class.
Where can I learn the Bars technique?
Upcoming classes with Tamara. Bars classes are taught by over 400 Certified Bars Facilitators in 25 different countries worldwide. You can find Certified Bars Facilitators and classes at www.bars.accessconsciousness.com.
Where did the Bars come from?
Access Consciousness Founder, Gary Douglas, originally channeled the Bars in 1990. Prior to that, they did not exist on earth.
Can the elderly/ill/handicapped benefit from having their Bars run?
Can Bars be run during pregnancy?
Absolutely! (Legally, of course, we have to suggest you ask your doctor first.)
Women who have had their Bars run during pregnancy, especially on a regular basis, report having short and easy births and many have avoided cesarean sections.
How long does a Bars session last?
Usually a Bars session lasts from 60-90 minutes although this can vary, and it is always better to run your Bars for even 20 minutes than to not run them at all!
What does a Bars session cost?
The cost of a Bars session is entirely up to the Practitioner. They operate independently and set their own prices. You can often find Practitioners at health and mind/body expos where you can get a sample session at a reduced price. Some Facilitators offer Bars trading nights where you can get an introductory session in a group at a reduced price.
What are the long-term effects of having your Bars run?
Most people who have experienced Bars regularly report that their lives continue getting easier and better.
Do you have to run your Bars more than once?
Access Consciousness and the Bars are about choice. You don’t have to do anything. People who experience the greatest benefits are those who have their Bars run regularly. It’s your choice.
Does running the Bars affect mental or psychological problems?
Many people who have had mental and psychological problems have been able to wean themselves off medications and experience amazing changes in their lives. Of course, we recommend you consult your doctor before discontinuing any prescribed medication.
Can running Bars be harmful to anyone?
No, no one can be harmed by having their Bars run.
Is there anyone who should not have his or her Bars run?
Only those who are unwilling or uninterested in trying it.
How do you know what to expect from having your Bars run?
You don’t! Every Bars session is different and there is no way to predict exactly what will “happen.” The guideline that best applies is that the worst you will feel is like you had a great massage, and the best that can happen is your whole life can change.
Can running Bars heal physical ailments and pain?
The Bars facilitate consciousness, which can potentially change any of these.
Some of the physical ailments that have changed in one Bars session include scoliosis resulting in a 1 1/2” height gain, changing pigeon-toes where surgery was recommended, as well as relief and disappearance of all kinds of aches and pains all over the body.
Many people have used the Bars in combination with other tools of Access Consciousness to make “incurable” diseases, including cancer, arthritis, chronic fatigue, depression, and bi-polar disorder, disappear.
How do you know how many Bars sessions it will take to heal something?
You don’t! The symptoms or disease will go away when you and your body are ready to release the considerations (thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs, decisions, judgments from any lifetime) that are keeping the undesirable condition in place.
This process is not linear, which means that a condition one person let go of in one session could take many sessions for another person and there is no wrongness in this. It is just different. It is, however, possible to ask a particular Bars session to address particular symptoms or issues. Results are determined by the person receiving the Bars session, and their body.
When should you have your Bars run?
Whenever you would like to feel great! Many people get them run regularly, once a week, with an extra session when they are having a difficult day.
Are the Bars like Reiki or Craniosacral therapy? Are they Acupuncture points?
The Bars did not exist on earth before Gary Douglas channeled them. While the points may appear to be craniosacral or acupuncture points, they have a different function when run as part of the Bars. We have not seen any other method generate the changes that are created by the Bars.
Reiki practitioners tend to do very well at learning the Bars since they are already familiar with energy. Running Bars for others seems to have a more wide-ranging effect on the whole lives of the people running the Bars than Reiki practitioners seem to experience.
Do you have to lie down to have your Bars run?
Lying down is not required. It does promote relaxation for the receiver in most cases, as well as ease and comfort for the Bars Practitioner. If lying down flat is a problem, a reclining or zero gravity chair can also work.
Can Bars Save Your Brain?
All of life comes to us with ease, joy and glory!
