Back to the good times

What would it take to live your life carefree & without judgment?

A constant need to further my spiritual growth and wellness caused me to stumble upon Access Consciousness Bars.

Access is about teaching you to be the question, instead of always searching for the answers. The motto of Access Consciousness is, “All of life comes to me with ease joy and glory.” It is a simple set of tools, techniques and philosophies that allow you to create dynamic change in every area of your life, with your body and with you.

This potent, hands-on body process consists of lightly holding 32 points on the head (the Bars) to release electromagnetic components of thought. One Bars session starts a flow of energy that can erase years of fixed points of view, judgments, negative feelings, and limiting beliefs that hold you back in all areas of life, and that can be creating illness.

Back to the point… What would it take to live your life carefree and without judgment?

This seems to be a topic of conversation that is coming up for me a lot lately. Not only that I keep seeing more and more examples of what life could be like.

Example 1: At a recent party I encountered the most adorable little three year old. She was part comedian, part cartoon, and full of unending energy. She comes up to me and in her tiny voice says, “I like you.” I of course say, “I like you too.” She then says, “who are you?” I almost peed myself laughing. She then tells me that I made it through my meal without a bib. After she proceeded to talk everyone at the party up she sat down and read (out loud by herself) her books. This kid has obviously been around the block a few times.

Example 2: Recently while riding the CTA I sat across from a mom and her three little children. Having seen many children on the CTA these kids where incredibly well behaved. The little boy had a disgruntled look on his face when I looked over at him. A couple of seconds later I noticed him eyeballin me. So I cocked an eye brow at him, and I kid you not he roared at me. Just a little one at first. When I tried to ignore him he roared at me again! So I crossed my eyes at him and made a fishy face. That’s when he let out with a huge roar complete with pawing motion. The rest of the train ride we sat there roaring at each other with all the other passengers looking at me like I am crazy (like I said it was the CTA so this is far from what could be considered abnormal). Finally, I asked the little boy, “Are you a tiger?” “No.” “Are you a lion?” “NO!” “Well what are you?” “I’m a RRROAAR!”

Oh. Ok. Well bye RRROARR!

My thought was what would it take to be like that? What would it take to be like a three year old that doesn’t know censorship, and doesn’t care what people think? To be who you are, be happy for who you are, and to be willing to do/say just about anything because it pleases you.

Personally, I was never like that as a child. I was even worse as a teenager. In fact if you look up teenage angst you might find my picture next to it. It’s funny… as an adult I find myself working to find a way to live my life without judgment of myself and fear of judgment from others. Implementing tools like light/heavy. Light= truth & heavy = false.

Does it make me feel light or heavy to sing and dance in the rain? Light? Awesome – watch out puddles here I come. Does it make me feel light or heavy to leave singing voice messages on my best friend’s phone (by the way I can not sing)? Light? Awesome – Thank god my BBF would probably do a snort laugh at work.

My point is that when you start to allow yourself to experience life to its fullest without judgment of yourself, or fear of judgment from others, your happiness and joy spread to those around you. So, why not spread joy? Get over yourself and act like the child within. What’s the saying? Don’t fix the world fix yourself first.
