“The Bars’ Technique Can Help Kids Study Better
By Dr. Sue Hegel
Do you ever get frustrated with trying to get your child to study?
Does your child have difficulty with studying, ceaselessly complaining, and doing anything to avoid it?
Does frustration from both you and your child create endless squabbles over studying?
The Bars Technique
What if, it didn’t take much to totally transform both you and your child’s experience of school, studying and testing – and all it involves is a technique called “The Bars”. Parents are using the Bars to assist their children to have fun in school, study easier, and test better, with less nagging and better grades abound.
One mother of a young teenager was shocked to hear that her son had failed to study for a geography final at his private school. Since she learned this at breakfast the morning of the test, she only had about 10 minutes to touch a small portion of “The Bars.” Her son, despite his failure to study, managed to ace the geography test. A young girl, labeled “learning disabled” in her high school, started having her Bars run on a regular basis. Six years later, she is now in the honors college at the competitive University of California, Santa Barbara, where she is a sophomore. While she was in high school, she changed from being a “special needs” student herself to beginning her own business tutoring her fellow students, using “The Bars” as well as some other techniques of Access Consciousness®. Her mother, who used to find doing anything with this girl a struggle, now, experiences a close and enjoyable relationship with her – another benefit attributable to “The Bars.”
How The Bars Work
A way of looking at these Bars is to consider them like the circuit breaker in your house. Just as the lights in your house go off when the circuit breaker flips or the fuse is blown, when your Bars are in need of being “run” (lightly touched) it is like the flow of energy of awareness that should be available to us that has been blocked. Light touch on the Bars flips the switch; so to speak, so much more awareness is available. Doesn’t it stand to reason that a child more able to be aware would also be more able to do well in all aspects of school?
Another positive result on children’s behavior, parents, who gift Bars have reported, is that their children find that events and people who used to upset them no longer aggravate them after as little as one session of Bars. Parents also report their children are sleeping better and more relaxed and this helps them study easier and test better.
Several doctors in different disciplines who are experts in biofeedback and brainwaves have described changes in their own brain waves during and after they received Bars sessions. They unanimously described moving from the “normal” waking state of beta into alpha states, the state in which natural learning and absorption of information with ease is possible which may enable students to test better. Children whose Bars are run, are able to function from alpha state and hence, are able to learn, absorb and deliver information easier.
How about it? Would you be willing to stop the squabbles and frustration around getting your child to study, and consider gently touching their head instead? It could transform your relationship, as well as their performance in school!
