Access Bars Practitioner Training - Great for Depression and Anxiety

Do you know anyone suffering from Anxiety or depression?

You may or may not have heard of a Body Process known as Access Consciousness the Bars.

During a 60 or 90 minute Bars session 32 points on the head are lightly held, allowing the recipient to release thoughts, feelings, emotions, judgments and decisions that they no longer need, This allows them to fill up that space in the body with the positive changes they would like to make.

You can't build a new house on old Foundations and because everything we experience is stored in the neural pathways, muscle memory, energy field, cellular memory and cellular memory when people want to change something, the body chemistry will often hold them stuck in old patterns and behaviors.

Recently a new scientific study was released that shows Bars makes a huge difference for people suffering from anxiety and depression. See link immediately below.

https://energypsychologyjournal.org/…/effects-access-bars-…/

I have been teaching the Bars for three years here in Nelson and recently also became a worldwide Certified Access Facilitator.

The Bars are also great for - stress and insomnia, physical symptoms in the body and tricky conditions such as autism and ADHD and Aspergers.

Becoming an Access Practitioner is a great and cost effective option if you have a child or family member who needs their Bars run regularly for mental or physical illness, or if you want your Bars run regularly to change your own life. You can swap with other practitioners for free.

Connect if you have questions on 0211933533 or email me at easeplease@roseaitken.com.

Please share this post with anyone you know who suffers from anxiety or depression. I am also available for private sessions here in my studio in Nelson city.

• What to bring
A sandwich for lunch, snacks and everything else will be provided.

Tickets: https://roseaitken.com/product/access-bars-class-one-day-training-become-a-licensed-practitioner/

Investment $390.00

To secure your place, you must pay a deposit of $100 by the 1st July. Bank acc as follows: 38-9011-0648102-06 R A Aitken.

Ian Austin - author talk

We are delighted to be hosting a talk by ex-cop turned crime writer Ian Austin. Ian will be talking about his Dan Calder trilogy at the Elma Turner Library at 2pm Sunday 8 July.

The agency, published in 2016, was the extremely popular first in the series – dealing with depression, marathon running and serial killers. That was followed by The second grave, which came out in May this year, where Dan has made a home in New Zealand and is feeling a bit more optimistic – but things don’t stay that calm and comfortable for long, and Dan heads back to the UK to sort out an “ungodly mess where almost unbelievably the Police now seem to be the enemy”.

There have been rave reviews for this second book, and we can take heart that the third in the trilogy Frozen summer, is in the pipeline.

Come along and hear Ian talk about his fabulous books – and Page & Blackmore will be there with copies of Ian’s books for purchase and signing.

The Law of Attraction and Manifesting Money

Money has quite a bad rap these days...Corporate greed, corruption, environmental destruction and a growing rich-poor gap.

However, we all need it and trying to be happy off of the choices that no money brings can be stressful and tiring.

Having it doesn't make you a bad person. In fact as a wonderful, giving person, you can do far more to make the world a better place if you have it and you won't change in the having of it.

Money is one of the areas where people have the most conflicting, painful beliefs that tie them up in knots and prevent them from having the choices they would most like to make.

Many nice people feel shameful about wanting money, yet they live in a weekly mess of striving, hating money, wanting freedom and feeling tied to certain activities in order to have it. Sound familiar?

If you have any money hassles at all, it will be because of your mindset. Your point of view creates your reality, your reality doesn't create your point of view.

$$ Come and learn where you are sticking yourself with money
$$ Learn tools and techniques for freeing your mindset
$$ Understand why rich people really have so much success/ease with money and how you can adopt their mindset and money handling skills. (This doesn't make you a bad person lol).
$$ Learn practical ways of being different with money and taking control of your outlook.
$$ Learn to be a maestro with money in your life and to stop being a slave to poor habits and negative thinking.
$$ Come away feeling hopeful, generative and inspired with a whole new money paradigm.

Cost $25. This workshop is limited to 8 places. You must pay by 8th July into bank account 38-9011-0648102-06, R A Aitken to secure your place. Please use MONEY and your name in the subject boxes.
