“All of Life Comes to Me with Ease,
Joy and Glory”
– Gary Douglas The first time I did it,
I asked the person “Ok, so what did you get out of this?” And they said: “Well, it seems to access
a new space of possibilities.” “Every time you touch one
of those Bars in my head, my life gets better!
With the Bars!” Access Consciousness presents
Access Bars A film to have even more happiness A film to have even more joy A film to have even more peace It’s OK to be happy
when other people aren’t. The one thing I’d like all of you to get is,
you may be the one person who comes out with an idea
that changes the world. Don’t give up. The one thing I’d like
all of you to get is that you may be the one person who comes out
with an idea that will change the world. So, never give up. – I never give up.
– Good boy! “What else is possible?”
Gary Douglas
Creator of the Access Bars I think that the first ones to come up
with the idea of bringing Bars to school
[Chiara Dolza, Founder of the Bars Project for Kids] were the kids themselves.
[Chiara Dolza, Founder of the Bars Project for Kids] the kids who receive the Bars and who said: “My teacher needs some Bars”, or “Sometimes, when I am at school,
I feel like I need to get my Bars run” And that’s how we came up with the idea,
“what if we brought Bars into the schools?” They say in computers,
[Gary Douglas and Dain Heer,
Creators of Acccess Consciousness] if you put garbage in, you get garbage out.
[Gary Douglas and Dain Heer,
Creators of Acccess Consciousness] They say in computers,
if you put garbage in, you get garbage out. So I figured the same thing
had to apply with us. So if you do the Bars,
you get rid of the garbage, and all that comes out is good stuff. So if you do the Bars, you get rid of all the garbage, and you have room
and all that comes out is good stuff. Two years ago, when we started
having the first conversations
[Danilo de Re, Founder of the Bars Project for Kids] about this project, we did
a lot of online research,
[Danilo de Re, Founder of the Bars Project for Kids] researching what had occurred with other projects, and who was offering sessions to kids. We found that some things or another had
already been done, in different parts of the world, there were many testimonials
in different languages, and this encouraged us a lot: to see that
other people around the world, had already started getting things in motion,
and it was like: “ok, it’s possible”. Then it was like: “ok, how do we do this
in Italy?” “When you see that something
has a positive effect on you,
and on many others as well …
I, personally, would choose to experience it again.”
Luca Cavagnino, teacher I’m speechless… it is such a beautiful thing
[Claudia Torta, Bars Facilitator] There’s so much you can let go of
[Claudia Torta, Bars Facilitator] and what a contribution this
is for other people, too. So many points of view get released and this is such a contribution for those around you. My experience with the Bars is amazing
[Lucia Rosso, primary school teacher, Italy] I’m so enthusiastic about these kinds of things
[Lucia Rosso, primary school teacher, Italy] since this is in line with my “persuits” as well, and I must say that this in particular speaks to me, because of all the other techniques I have tried thus far, where you had to stay calm, relaxed, keep quiet, concentrate,
meditate and so on. The first time I did it, I asked the person: “Ok, so what did you get out of this?” And they said,
“Well, it seems to access a new space of possibilities.” The first time I did it, I asked the person: “Ok, so what did you get out of this? ” They said: “And it feels like every time
you touch one of these Bars in my head, my life gets better”. I had access to a new space of possibilities. It seems like every time you touch those
points on my head, my life gets better. Ok, so it’s Bars. We sent our project to about twenty different schools, ranging from nursery and primary schools,
to junior and senior high schools. 20-25 schools all over Italy. (How many accepted the project?)
One! For the teachers, having tried out
the Bars first on themselves, they worked together to organize this, knowing that the kids were asking for Bars, and they got that this could be
a contribution to the kids, and a contribution for them, too. I believe that this came about
thanks to the teachers. I like Bars. Me, too. It’s one of my favorite things in the world. Because it relaxes me and makes me happy. And by the way, it is OK to be happy,
even when other people aren’t. Just pretend you’re crying. During our first encounter they talked about
[Luca Cavagnino, primary school teacher, Italy] touching the head with their hands,
who knows what will happen…
[Luca Cavagnino, primary school teacher, Italy] but then, they ran my Bars,
and it changed something in me, before proposing it to the kids, we teachers tried it out first and, yes,
I felt… … I immediately had positive sensations…
relaxation… lightness in my body, every time,
and I did it several times. Each time the session began,
after only a few minutes, I would fall asleep. And when I woke up, a half hour later,
I felt refreshed. I felt I was ready to take on the world. As if I had recharged my batteries, so, let’s say that the skepticism
slowly melted away… There were, speaking for myself, results. and with the kids, I saw that they were happy:
“Ah, here come the people who run Bars!”. So, when you see something
has a positive effect on you and you see that others
have more or less the same effect … let’s say I would do it again. Here you can be yourself, as you really are,
and at the same time receive and this is fantastic because
you don’t have to struggle to clear your mind, “oh my God, too many thoughts.
Now what do I do? I’m not doing it right.” It’s true, and when that comes up, you get anxiety. Instead, with the Bars, you get calm, you’re relaxed, chatting, being yourself
and then you feel good without having had to spend a lot of precious energy
in order to get something out of it. In short: you benefit … freely… without all that effort or fatigue, and so often things cost us
a lot of effort and fatigue. “I asked for the universe to show me
a way to be happy.”
– Gary Douglas,
Founder of Access Consciousness As you know,
[Paola Petrini, Bars Facilitator] I really like children, so it was wonderful for me.
[Paola Petrini, Bars Facilitator] From the very first time. I felt so much at ease. Because the kids, if you talk with them, they’re very exuberant and expansive they tell you about themselves,
and that makes it fun. Why did you invent the Bars? Actually, I asked for the universe to show me
a way to get happy, because I was not. I felt drawn to let him participate
[Luana Runduk, mother of a student] because I thought that,
[Luana Runduk, mother of a student] as we all have been at school, we know it can be stressful,
and if there’s something that makes it more relaxing,
why not do it? And, there’s no harm in trying. I noticed, some children
really changed their attitude those who were more introverted,
then they started talking, started talking about their experience … You could see that they already knew
where to put their hands, they knew they shouldn’t cross their hands, they were discussing it amongst themselves … It’s nice, you can see the change in that period of time, as much as we can get done
in that short amount of time, but you can indeed see the change. How do I feel?
[Student, Bars receiver] Well, I feel much better, lighter.
[Student, Bars receiver] He calmed down a lot, compared to before,
[Mother, primary school, Italy] as he’s an agitated child, vivacious
[Mother, primary school, Italy] or as they say, he’s “lively”.
But during the pauses he’s quite exuberant and therefore
he needs to be held back a bit. The teachers told me, though,
he did calm down very much, as compared to how he used to be. Big changes showed up,
and I wasn’t expecting that, but they were so obvious. Even their faces changed, the way they look,
their feeling more confident… They’re always so cheerful! It’s a beautiful and relaxing thing.
[Student, Bars receiver] Their grades improved. There were moments in which the kids told us about situations at home,
which were not so easy. It was like, when we
clean out different layers, everything starts becoming more clear, and even their talents,
and their capacity to access those talents, and things that don’t work
as we would like. So, there was more
clarity for everybody. “You may be the one person comes out
with an idea that changes the world.”
– Gary Douglas It’s an excellent creation…
skipping classes in order to receive Bars and it’s an excellent creation receiving Bars. As a matter of fact, when you receive Bars,
Bars work, they always do. They’re always a contribution,
whatever the motivation, right? Sometimes skipping classes comes
from boredom, which is a choice, so, having a more exciting choice,
choosing something different, and these children desired to create something different at school. Also, we were running the Bars in a room
with the doors open, and the other kids,
students from other classes, walked by and would look inside the room, and then talked amongst themselves “did you see that?” So, there was this energy of fun and what we saw as practitioners was that this energy was a vehicle, a possibility to encourage more fun
and make things funny. It was the main vehicle to create
something greater. The kids changed so much
in just two months. What we saw… is
the application of an easy tool, without any points of view
from the kids’ side…… did this… The one thing I’d like all you to get is you may be the one person
that comes out with an idea that changes the world.
Don’t give up. The one I’d like all you to get,
is you may be the one person that comes out with an idea
that changes the world. So, never give up.
I never give up.
Good boy! Can also kids run the Bars?
Yes. They run them better than adults. And faster than adults. Adults take an hour and a half Kids run them in 20 minutes. Sometimes. If your mom or your dad is cranky,
run their Bars, they will stop being cranky. Even last night, he asked me:
“Mom, do you want me to run your Bars?” And I did not think he was capable of doing that. Now I think even a child can do it. Not knowing what it was about,
as I had not seen it before, I thought it was something
much more complicated, but it’s not. I think this might help families so much,
if they ran one another’s Bars. “Always ask. You shall receive.”
– Gary Douglas The parents reached out to us
to tell us about their experience with Bars at home.
They told us that on Tuesdays, which was the day
we went to run Bars, they noticed the kids
were more involved, and their notebooks
started to be tidier. Then the parents noticed
how the kids offered to run Bars to their siblings and parents. The parents were initially not at ease with the kids coming to them and saying:
“Now I will run your Bars.” But once the kids started
touching the points on their head, they said it was very lovely for them. The teachers shared with us how different
teaching became for them … more pleasurable, a sensation of embarking upon a learning path together as students, teachers,
and colleagues, It was a beautiful experience. And the kids couldn’t wait to receive Bars… I think it was a beautiful
experience for the kids, too. Ok, the Bars on kids is actually
a session, but it’s also playful. When done in a light and playful way,
it goes much faster. What I noticed in these weeks
even from a technical point of view, is that the Bars help release thoughts,
emotions, feelings and limiting points of view
that pile up in our life. When we are 7-8 years old, we have a past which has not
yet begun weighing us down, so a session goes much faster and this is the contribution
that children naturally are in life. They bring with them this lightness
and they do not have these heavy layers. The Bars contribute to create even more,
and therefore, we have happy kids. I remember once, at the end
of a full day of sessions, one teacher said: “Sebastian received the Bars, but the Bars had the opposite effect on him. He is livelier,
he’s more joyful, he’s more cheerful,
he should calm down, instead!” It’s funny, because the point
of “empowering” is not about making it “easy”
for the teacher. Bars are not about “easy”,
they are about creating more ease. And when kids are happy and cheerful,
they have more ease. This applies to everyone,
even to the teachers. So, my question is: are the teachers willing
to receive the contribution the kids are? – I feel a bit as if I was sleeping in the clouds.
– You are. Afterwards I feel like I don’t have
any bad thoughts, but only good things. Yes, because bad thoughts usually
belong to other people, not to you. Yes, it’s ok, you’re “psychic”, as they call it. You pick up other people’s thoughts all the time. So, if you pick up a bad thought,
you can ask: “Is this mine?” And 99,000% of the time it’s not yours. I’d like that, after opening this little door
in the world of institutions, and now, maybe, it is quite an easy period,
in which mindfulness, yoga classes start entering the schools,
I’d like to ask: Where else would the Bars like to go to? To whom would you have fun
presenting these tools? Maybe it’s the professional athletes,
rest homes, elderly people, hospitals, communities with people
that are special, right? who have different talents and modalities. What if the Bars were that tool
that would make your life much easier, with much more expansion,
much more…instantaneous creation? And I would really like to ask, “Where else do the Bars want to go and play?
And what do you know?” The Bars are this thing
where certain people come to schools, run your Bars and you relax
and then you’re not aggressive or violent anymore. The Bars are this thing where certain people come
to school, run your Bars, and you relax and then you’re not
aggressive or violent anymore. Exactly. But that is the way all the world
is supposed to be, it just isn’t. It so easy to be light, the contribution we can be, together. And that is exactly what they are saying, isn’t it? And how amazing is that? When you ask for something good
to show up, it does. And you don’t know where it comes from,
it just shows up. When you ask for something beautiful
to show up in your life, it does, as simple as that. Always ask. You shall receive. There are Bars Facilitators
