Access Consciousness Bars by Linda Stewart

When people ask me about Access Consciousness Bars, my immediate response is:

You know how reflexology is points on the feet relating to different areas of your body? Well Access Bars, or simply Bars, is essentially points on the head, relating to different areas of your life…..
At this point people are intrigued and usually always want to know more.

HealingHeadI first discovered Access Bars – the simple process involving touching specific energy points on the head – when I was seeking change in my own life. I had become increasingly dis-satisfied with my career in the public sector and had long been frustrated that I wanted to make a bigger difference than my job would permit.

I remember hearing Doctor Dain Heer, the co-creator of Access Consciousness talking about this “life-changing technique” called The Bars and it immediately made perfect sense to me. Intuitively, I knew, without a doubt that I would become a facilitator and teacher of The Bars and share this remarkable tool with a large number of people.

Three weeks later, I attended my first Bars Practitioner class during which I had my first experience of receiving Bars {known as having my Bars Run}. I experienced a huge release and sensed a letting go of many layers and many years, probably lifetimes, of limitations and trauma that was held in my body. Ever since that day I’ve experienced a new sense of ease, inner calm, gratitude and joy! I’ve ditched many self-imposed limiting beliefs that I was defending and allowing to hold me back in my life. Life’s never been the same since.

Following that initial class I ran Bars for pretty much everyone I knew. Everyone loved it. And less than three months later, I began to teach others and offer private sessions.”


Access Bars, is a gentle, nurturing and non-invasive hands-on body process. It has benefited thousands of people around the world to improve their situation around money, their body, health, relationships, spirituality, career, business and any other life area you can mention.

First introduced by Gary Douglas in 1990, “The Bars” is the foundation and first building block of a transformative body of work called Access Consciousness – a set of tools, techniques, questions and processes that you can use to change any area of your life you’d like to change.

As mentioned earlier, it is based on the practitioner touching specific energy points, or Bars on and around your head that connect to different areas of your life. There are Bars for healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, power, aging, sex, manifestation, money and more. 32 different points in all.

This is where the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs, decisions, judgements, considerations and points of view that you ever had about anything are stored. The technique has been described as being similar to deleting old and unwanted files off your computer’s hard- drive. As a result more space becomes available for you to receive and create something totally new.

Having your Bars run actually slows your brainwaves from beta through alpha to theta, putting the receiver into a deep state of relaxation and making it a powerful stress reliever. It’s said that a single Bars session is equivalent to several hours of deep sleep.

And those who have tried meditation report that the stillness and inner peace that they seek in meditation is achievable without effort when someone runs their Bars. Bars somehow allows you to tap into your subconscious mind, release anything that is limiting you and creates space that enables you to tap into your generative and creative capacities.

Touch one Bar and you activate it and begin to clear away the energy locked up in that area or aspect of your life. Add in touching another Bar and you not only clear the “issues” from the first Bar, you also begin to clear the “issues” stored in that second Bar. In addition you clear all the points of view about those two Bars in relation to each other, allowing for exponential change. Just by gently placing your fingers on the points of the Bars, you effectively erase everything you’ve ever stored there.

The points may may appear to be cranial-sacral or acupuncture points, however they have a different function when touched as part of the Bars. In addition no other method or modality seems to 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 but anyone, without experience can learn.

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, feeling that whatever was upsetting before the session doesn’t matter any more. Most people who have experienced Bars regularly report that their lives continue getting easier and better


In addition to teaching and seeing private clients, I spend one day a week gifting Bars sessions to professional counselling staff and clients of a charity for people whose lives have been affected by abuse and trauma. PTSD is impacted by anxiety disorders such as social phobia and depression, panic attacks and symptoms related to chronic stress.

I offer Bars as a complementary therapy to psychological talking therapies and have seen remarkable changes in clients mood, personality and behaviour – sometimes in a single session. One client has abandoned long-term therapy, telling me they are now able to take responsibility for, and solve their own problems.

It was my personal experience of depression and wish to choose something different that led to my own natural self-healing using tools from my holistic toolbox including The Bars.

I’ve personally received such enormous benefits from The Bars that I created the growing Access Consciousness London Bars Meetup community so that anyone can benefit from Bars in the same way that I have.

I love teaching and sharing Bars, It’s so deeply transformative. I often say Bars class isn’t actually about learning Bars. It is, but its also about so much more. In Bars class you get to gift and receive 4 hours of Bars which, as you might imagine can facilitate so much change for everyone in just a few hours. I get to visibly see and witness the change which is such a gift.

I often receive messages from students telling me the huge changes that they’ve fearlessly made in their lives. Some that they’ve wanted to make for years. I’ve adopted the tag line for Bars “Change your life in just one day”. The great thing is you leave class with this wonderful tool which you can use to facilitate others to change their lives too. Absolutely anyone, including children can benefit from Bars and anyone can learn.

One of my teachers recently said “there’s 8 billion people on the planet, and every one of them needs their Bars run”. I completely agree 🙂

Holistic healer, teacher and mind-body-soul coach Linda Stewart offers private sessions, classes and transformational retreats based on the life-altering modality she facilitates, Access Consciousness Bars.

Linda’s personal experience of self-healing using complementary medicine over 20 years ago sparked within her a passion for alternative health and healing that led her to study numerous mind-
body therapies including Reiki healing and Thai yoga massage which she studied both in the UK and in northern Thailand.

“After obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Complementary Therapies from Westminster University, London in the year 2000, I was particularly fascinated by energy medicine and the mind-body connection – psychoneuroimmunology. Over the years I’ve studied and, personally received a whole range of therapies, each of them hugely valuable pieces in my current holistic toolbox. But in 20+ years of using and studying alternative and holistic healing modalities, no other modality has captured my attention or shown me such rapid and dramatic and profound results for myself and others like Access Consciousness Bars.”
