The Power of Questions

I am always amazed at the power of running Bars and asking questions, even in extreme situations.

A year ago a client suffered a sudden stroke which immobilised most of the right side of her body. The doctor’s told her it would a slow recovery but she did not accept that.

I visited her in hospital, run her Bars and asked her a lot of questions. What would she like to change? What would her body like to change?  What else was possible with facilitating a change in the current situation?

What would it take for a major improvement to allow her to be discharged and go home to her cats?  What would it be like to be able to stroke her cat as if she was with her now on the hospital bed?

And, yes, her hand started a stroking movement, slowly at first and then very firm and unmistakeable. Then we asked how else would the hand like to move?  What would it like to do?
The right hand was moving fairly freely within a week of the stroke, and so was the right leg and everything else started getting back towards normal functioning.

Once home she fast regained her previous abilities, with the help of her fabulous feline healers of course.  Oh, and regular Bars sessions!

What else is possible?

What The Body Knows

For some time I had wanted to let go of some excess weight.   I already knew that deprivation diets didn’t work for me as I always regained lost weight.   So what would it take?    I kept asking over and over:   What would it take to get fitter and healthier?

Instead of attempting to beat my body into submission – which never worked – I had a chat with my body, treating it as my best friend.   (See earlier my post “Your Body As Your Buddy”).
I asked: ok body what would you like to look like?  I got pictures of petite, but shapely hourglass figures.  Hmmm, not what was showing in the mirror…  Great!  And how can achieve that?

One day last December I saw a comment a friend posted on Facebook just saying: “Tomorrow I’m starting the Whole30”.  That was it, no other info.   My body started jumping up and down with excitement, practically screaming in my head: “We are doing this, too!”.   So this conversation was kind of going on in my head:

Mind: “But what is it?”
Body: “Look it up. We are so doing this.”
Mind:   “Not another diet!”
Body:   “This is what I want. We are doing this NOW!”
Mind:   “All right. Fine. I’ll check it out.”

My body really wanted to do it, there was such a strong pull.  I read all the reviews, bought the book (It Starts With Food) and prepared to start in January, after the Christmas break of course.

30 days later I was feeling much more energetic, healthier and a whole stone lighter never having been hungry or deprived once. Wow! What did my body know that my mind didn’t? The conversation with my body continued and it let me know that it also wanted to move more.   Note, it was “move”, not “exercise”…. Pilates kept appearing in my awareness.   Did a search online and found class round the corner with a lovely trainer.

And six months later I am in better shape that I have been since my twenties.   My body is very happy and, not only is it maintaining the results but is still changing: same weight but slimmer and shapelier.   Amazing!

Our bodies are always talking to us, when we make the effort to listen to them.

A Neuroscientist’s View of the Access Bars

This is a review of what occurs in the brain before and after an Access Bars session. Presented by neuroscientist Dr. Jeffrey Fannin with Gary Douglas & Dr. Dain Heer, creators of Access Consciousness.

The Bars are amazing! I love getting them run as often as I can. And now I know the science of why it works so well for me. It creates a physical and energetic alignment with the consciousness of the universe!!

If you would like less stress, mind chatter, and physical pain in your life you might want to consider booking a session or taking a class to learn how to do it yourself.

Have you tried the Bars® yet?

What would you say if I told that you could change your life in just one hour, all while lying down relaxing?
Thousands of people all over the world have!

The Bars ® is an energetic body process that consists of 32 points on the head that when touched assist you in releasing decisions that we have made about any area of your life, whether consciously or unconsciously, that you have made solid and a result cannot change.

Are you willing to give yourself an hour to change your life?

 

How does it get any better than that?

True story, this is what showed up yesterday:
Mid morning I had a call from a new client booking a Bars session. Great, I said, and how does it get any better that this?

Within the hour another client booked a coaching session.
So I asked again: how does it get any better than this?

Another two  enquiries and one immediate booking for another session. Of course I kept going: how does it get even better than this?

Two registrations for my next Bars class arrived in my Inbox.

Wow! All of that in the space of a few hours!

Have I stopped asking?  Oh no!  What else is possible?

What would show up for you if also asked those questions, and stayed open to receive?  Just asking….

 

Your Body as your Buddy?

What if your body was your best friend?  What if your body was always meant to work in harmony with you and give you more awareness, beyond the five senses?

What would it be like to have a rewarding relationship with your body?

Could we talk to our bodies and listen to what they say to us, to develop a healthier and happier life?

So, truth , who likes their body just as it is? Not many of us, sadly. We are always judging and criticising our bodies. How often do we treat our body worse than a pet or a car?  Would anyone ever knowingly put diesel in a petrol car or vice-versa? No, we wouldn’t dream of it!  It runs much better on what it actually requires.  Yet, do we ever ask what our body requires before putting something in its mouth?  Or would we force-feed a pet with all our favourite foods (or starve them) regardless of what they need or desire?

Dr. Bruce Lipton in this book “Biology of Belief” scientifically proves that cells have intelligence.  Don’t our bodies keep us alive by breathing, beating our hearts, sending blood round all the organs, without any conscious effort on our part? Every cell of our body knows what to do and just gets on with its job without constant instructions, or we would not survive  Aren’t bodies amazing?

Every body is intelligent and has its own awareness. It is designed as a biofeedback system, beyond the 5 senses, the body gives us feedback as another sense. Have you ever said something “I feel it in my guts. Or, I have a sensation in my solar plexus”?  That’s an example of your body communicating with you.

Bodies communicate with energy not words, we do not usually get voices in our heads…!

So what would it take to start talking and listening to our own body. What if our Body could become our best Buddy and develop a life long friendship?

Bodies are made up of about 70% water.  Check out Dr. Masaro Emoto’s book “Memory of Water” where he graphically shows the effect that words have on living cells.

The way we treat our bodies and what we say to them actually affects the cells behaviour.  So, how nice are we being to them most of the time? How different would our bodies be if we talked to them and asked them to work in harmony with us, instead of fighting them or trying to control them?

Why not try, just occasionally, to ask your body what it would like to eat, what it would to wear, how it would like to move? And listen out. But don’t do it all the time, or your life might change too much…

 

Spring Clean Your Life – How your stuff can affect your health

Spring is approaching, there is freshness in the air and the promise of new life is blossoming in every flower bud. It is at this time that most of us start thinking about spring cleaning and getting the cobwebs out of our house.  But what about the cobwebs in our life?  How much dust and clutter have we accumulated since the last spring clean?

Everything we own, everything we have around our house has a link to our own self – almost like a thin chain holding us down.  And if we have too many chains we feel we cannot move freely: we feel stuck.  Stuff has an effect on our wellbeing, both physical and emotional.  It actually affects our health!

There is a very simple thing we can do immediately to help us move along: clear our clutter at home. What do I mean by clutter?  Clutter is anything we do not use or love, anything unfinished or messy, or even just too many things in a small space.

So this Spring don’t just clean the place, give it a good clear out.  Start with your wardrobe and give to a charity shop all the clothes you haven’t worn for at least a year and the shoes that don’t really suit you.  Remove any items that are just taking up space in your new life.  You see, you need to create some space before new things can come to you.  Let go of the old and allow the new to come to you. Nature abhors a vacuum, so it will soon be replaced. Make sure you choose what you want that replacement to be. Keep in mind you are always in charge.

So after the wardrobe why not clear out your old books and correspondence or maybe tackle your kitchen drawers.  And remember to return all stuff that you borrowed.

The garage and the loft are usually big jobs – keep them last and start with the smallest room, or even with just one corner.  If you tackle too much too soon, you might be tempted to give up and end up doing nothing at all.  Start gently, one room at time. You will feel lighter and more energetic with each bit you clear out, ready for that promise of new life blossoming out there.

Go on, clear your clutter now and make room for your new life.
