Are you ready for Strong Talk?

by Access Administrator on September 17, 2014

Are you ready for Strong Talk? Are you willing to drop all of those barriers, points of view, resistance and to be rocketed into more awareness and clarity than you ever thought possible?

Gary Douglas is offering us a new chance to step into a space of accelerated change.  What could that add to your life?

Let’s take a moment to look at what Strong Talk is and what makes it so very different.  Most of us have facilitated others and been facilitated ourselves.  If it’s using the Access tools, then questions are asked, answers are nothing more than conclusions, allowance is in place along with no judgment, and the person being facilitated is at liberty to change or to weasel, waffle, avoid.  It’s always about what ever they would like to choose with no suggestions or even a hint of confrontation.

Strong talk has a different basis.  While the elements of question, and allowance and no judgment are present, the person receiving the strong talk has agreed to receive a greater awareness of what is possible, as uncomfortable as it may be and even though it challenges their decisions, judgments, conclusions and fixed points of view. Can it be intense?  Absolutely!!

So why would someone choose to be the target of strong talk?  What’s the value of putting yourself in the position of what appears to be standing naked in front of a crowd?

One thing to know, Strong Talk is not what many of us experienced in confrontation type therapies.  Can you remember that energy?  It was a combination of force, effort and violence.  Strong talk comes from a space of kindness and caring.   It’s Gary Douglas’ desire for us to be all that we can be; to show up as the space of greatness that we truly are, and sometimes a Strong Talk is required to get us there.

Have you ever found yourself in a place where you knew your life wasn’t really working but you didn’t know why?  Did you try every clearing you could think of? Did you search and search for what was holding you back but were unable to change things?  Unable to become unstuck? If that’s been true for you, then there’s a good possibility that you were holding onto a big fixed point of view, a judgment or a lie of magnitude!  Most of us have a place or two where we really don’t want to be aware of what’s going on and who people really are.  For many it’s our family, but it can also be about our partners, our jobs, or our bodies.  It can seem harmless enough to have blinders on about a few aspects of our lives, but it’s these blinders that put an absolute halt to expanding our awareness and being all that we can be.  That’s where Strong Talk comes in.  It’s about blasting off the blinders so that we can be aware of what really is, rather than holding onto how we wish things were.

Strong talk can gift you the clarity and ease that you desire. How we respond to Strong Talk is completely up to us!  We can choose to make it difficult or not.  By lowering our barriers and choosing to be vulnerable, we can receive a Strong Talk simply as an intensity and with great gratitude!

Are you willing to have huge change in your life?  Are you willing to step off the cliff of limitation and into the space possibility?  Then Strong Talk may be for you!

Please note that Strong Talk is available for people who have completed a Level 2 & 3


Are you living in the moment?

by Access Administrator on September 15, 2014

How often have you heard the phrase, “live in the moment”? Is this a statement that was designed to motivate us to be present? Would an infinite being have only one moment to take care of? If you expand far outside of your body and include you the being and your body in that much space, what does a moment feel like? To me it seems fixed, dense and slow. It is an opportunity to stop, make something significant, and hang out in our conclusions. Arrrg!!! Consciousness is faster than ‘the moment’. What if you could have your living beyond the moment? Being the space of the molecules allows us to include our future. Am I talking about a definable future? No. A future is a grand expansion of possibilities. What does that look like? It looks like a godzillion choices. Living is an onward act.

If you take a ‘moment’ and look at a flower or even a weed….in that moment you gaze adoringly at it’s beauty and then the moment is finished… or is it? Next time you are in nature or you have a flower in front of you….could you do us all a favour and receive it? In that receiving, can you notice the shifts in your body? The movement and motion of energies?… circling, peaking and subsiding and igniting; and the rhythms? See if you notice your body’s molecules merge with the plant and perhaps you could ask for the thrum of the earth and notice the energy that question contributes. Could you consider that creating your life and including your future is more like receiving a beautiful part of nature? So if you live in the moment are you really being present with everything that is available and everything that is available that we have not chosen yet? Is living in the moment actually living? When you are receiving anything, please know that your future is right there with you….. waiting to be included in your choices.

As the Gary Douglas tour of Australia rapidly approaches I am aware of a future that has not yet been created. My daughter cried to me last night as we lay in bed together. She has been questioning me for some weeks as to how to manage the girls at school who like to chastise her and find ways to get her in trouble from the teachers. I am aware of how the girls are duplicating their mothers and I am reminded of how different we all are willing to be and how vital it is to create a different future.

There is a prosperity available to us that is beyond what currently exists here on planet earth. I am so grateful for all of us attending Gary’s classes: Levels 2 & 3, and Would You Teach a Fish to Climb a Tree in Perth, and the Abuse Hold Class and Advanced Body Class in Mooloolaba; and for all the doors that we can open up. And I am grateful for the willingness and courage to step into a future that we have to create; that won’t be created unless we choose it and unless we demand it.

Denver, Vancouver, San Francisco…. Whoa!

September 11, 2014 Access Consciousness

I find myself writing this fresh off the 2/3 in San Francisco August 18th to 21st. Three weeks ago I didn’t have the money or the time to make it to the Abuse hold class on the 17th. On the 16th I didn’t think I was going to the 2/3. Would it really be worth it [...]

Letting Go Of Judgment

September 3, 2014 Access Consciousness

We live in a world of judgment: This is the right thing to do, this is the wrong thing to do, that person is being very inappropriate, that person is always so kind. Yet what does judgment create?  Is it a contribution to our lives or is it destructive? I’ve looked at the process and [...]

Acknowledging Your Creativity

September 2, 2014 Access Consciousness

There are three points in the Access Consciousness Bars that are about creating: Creativity, Creating Connections and Creating Life Forms.   For many people just talking about these points brings up a lot of self-judgment.  Statements like: “Oh I’m not a creative person, I can’t even draw a stick figure.” or “My sister’s the creative one [...]

Are You In The computation Of Your Life?

September 1, 2014 Access Consciousness

How many people are schooled by their parents, churches and other organizations that tell us we should always put others first?  Does that sound familiar to you? Dr. Dain Heer recalls how, as a child, he would wake up every morning and ask: What does my mom need from me? What does my grandmother need [...]

Are You Willing To Be A Loser?

August 31, 2014 Access Consciousness

Most of us would do anything rather than be seen as a loser.  That word has such an intense connotation to it.  “Hey loser!”  Doesn’t that make you shudder?  Who would choose that?  Well, if you’re interested in creating more in your life, you might just consider embracing being a loser! We tend to think [...]

Would you be Willing to Step Beyond anyone else’s Limitations?

August 31, 2014 Access Consciousness Tools

Coming back from a trip to Costa Rica yesterday, I landed in Fort Lauderdale where I had to go through immigrations. I had 1 1/2 hours to catch my next flight. Cool!, I thought. Until I saw the line… Hmmm. After 1/2 hour of labyrinthal ’snaking’ in the overcrowded small room, I got an awareness [...]

Are You Smart Enough To Keep things Simple?

August 29, 2014 Access Consciousness

For many of us growing up, the idea of having a life that was simple was synonymous with being retarded, boring and unsophisticated. This was not something to strive for.  Since the opposite side of this particular coin is “complicated”, that’s what most of us opted for.  What if having a life that was simple [...]

How I Ended the Torture by Giving Up My Purpose

August 28, 2014 Access Consciousness Tools
