Knowing and Being...

the Essence of  YOU

Creating and Choosing...

from Infinite Possibilities

What is Access Consciousness? 

Developed 30 years ago and taught and practiced in 172 countries, Access Consciousness is a set of tools and processes to help you change anything you've not been able to change in your life and allow your life force energy (ch'i, Spirit) to return to its full capacity, so that you are able to freely and easily choose, create, and experience what you desire. Even one session, along with the use of a few of the tools, can bring benefits equal to that which can come from doing 15 years of meditation.

More Detail

Unknowingly, we have absorbed, accumulated, and store limiting thoughts, beliefs, emotions, energies, attitudes, patterns, and physical conditions (like computer junk files, or spam) that aren't true for us, from society, culture, family, friends, and personal experiences.  We also carry ideas about right and wrong and good and bad, including beliefs that something is wrong about us, or bad about the way we behave or think, or dull about our ability. These block us from easily connecting with ourselves, the beauty of life, and things like joy, money, ease, connections, energy, healing, love, and peace. They interfere with our abilities to make changes that empower us, by drawing us away from our centers, our inherent wholeness, and our life force. Patterns and ‘programs’ we’ve taken on cause us to react to life on autopilot, or depress our aliveness through addictions, and resist the very experiences we most long for.  In short, they block our ability to Access our full Consciousness, which is our true knowing and connection to all that is.


Access Consciousness helps clear these, so that we begin to regain our natural freedom to function with clarity and awareness. We reactivate our true knowing and expression of who we truly are, without fear and obstruction. We then begin to receive new and infinite possibilities for our bodies and our lives and Access our full and greatest Consciousness.

What is a Bars Session?

Compare the brain to a computer and The Bars® treatment to a disk defragmenter.  The bars (32 points on the head) correspond to different areas of the brain (the computer files) that relate to aspects of everyday life. They store electromagnetic components of your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, energies, attitudes, patterns, and physical conditions that relate to aspects such as creativity, money, connections, sex, body, health, healing, power, joy, sadness, calm, etc.  An Access Consciousness Bar session by a Certified Practitioner is a light touch hold of these points on the head, for different amounts of time with different processes. These points store the electrical charges of the junk files that originated from others (people and experiences), not you. Instead of functioning from repetitive patterns that keep you stuck in your current reality, running your ‘Bars’ helps you to function from your true being, freeing you to create something new. Not only is it hitting the Delete button when it comes to old programs (i.e. the junk files deleted!), but it is also Emptying the Recycle Bin! 

Outcomes and Benefits

For more details, see the testimonials (quoted in white italics on this page) from a few of my session recipients and read "Specific Symtoms Benefited" below.


You will feel the benefit after one Bars session very quickly in your life. ​Studies have shown that The Bars® treatment promotes a theta brainwave state, allowing behavioural patterns and childhood perspectives to surface and be released, and a greater state of presence, allowance, and openness to arise. You may experience a disrupting of harmful behavioral patterns or clear out old emotion clutter, as it improves brain waves by releasing the energy, emotions, beliefs, thoughts, patterns and habits, attitudes, and unwanted physical conditions. The Bars session frees you by deleting the files that created them, so that areas like joy, money, creativity, health & connection, kindness, power, sexuality, hope, gratitude, peace, calm, dreams, prosperity, communication, and healing power are easier to access and attract, without effort.  As a result, you are able to Access more and more of your greater Consciousness, more choice, more knowingness of who you truly are, and more freedom to be you without judgment or energetically created limits.

What does a Bars session feel like?
Having your bars run is relaxing for everyone, though the exact experience is different for everyone. It has been described as similar to having a wonderful massage, meditation, or good night of sleep. Some feel a release of heavy emotions, or a lightening of the spirit, a sense of optimism, inner joy, or peace. Narrow beliefs and harmful habits begin to weaken or disappear. Those who had previous anxiety or panic attacks notice that they are severely lessened, if not completely gone.  Most  feel hopeful, inspired, or excited. Many feel grateful and loved for the gift they have received. Others feel more empowered and certain about what had previously felt scary, hard, or unclear. Some may not notice an immediate benefit, but go through a significant emotional or mental detox of negative energy in the 1-4 weeks that follow. Whether it's immediate or after a week or two, everyone feels freer, calmer, and clearer. It is a beneficial way to clear stress, help with depression, and soothe feelings of loss. No matter what you are wanting to receive, the Bars session is a rewarding experience that will immediately shift you in to more of the life you have always wanted.

Who is this Safe for?

Access Consciousness Bars sessions are done through the act of light, caring touch, so there is no pressure, no electrical connection, no substance, and no energy transferral, only the allowing of each individual's personal vitality, spirit, internal wisdom, and consciousness. As such, the sessions are safe everyone, including children, babies, pregnant women, new mothers, the elderly, those with diseases such as cancer and serious health conditions, and individuals with pacemakers.

It is actually recommended for women who are expecting, as it can help disperse build-ups of negative energy, thoughts, and emotions.  It is popular for new mothers to attend a bars session and rest baby on their chest while having their bars run.


The Bars are wonderful for children who are under pressure in any way or feeling stressed out at school.  Children who get their Access Bars run are reportedly calmer after just one session.  Children report feeling more at ease, show greater memory retention, and exhibit a stronger focus.

Always Something New

Access Consciousness, as the set of processes and tools, is layered and dimensional, like consciousness itself, so there's always something new to help us clear and be more of the infinitely creative energetic beings we are.

Jan's Testimonials

"I' m so grateful that you gave me this gift, because it allowed me the time to spend with myself that I hadn't had in a very long time. It was like going home again in my heart and in my spirit, and just allowing myself to experience peace and tranquility and support, and knowing that I'm not alone. As our spirits connected, and the energy merged with the universe and with everything that is our beingness, I had so much gratitude, especially in the things that the world is experiencing right now. I was feeling so grateful that we had the ability to connect in the space where we can hear the ocean, and the sun is shining, and the chimes are ringing, and the birds are outside singing. And I thought, there is nothing wrong with this existence. We have such a beautiful life if we focus on those things and really listen. I heard, and I listened, and I saw, and the colors were beautiful, and my heart feels open, and I just really think that it's beyond a gift that we have what we've been given and that we can share them together. So, thank you."                                      ~ Jewels

"With a curiosity & interest in Jan’s session, I let myself go into a deep meditation resting my head in her hands. The Bars session felt like it had just started, and then it was finishing. A totally relaxing experience, except for a moment where I felt like a muscle behind my left ear had stretched, and relaxed, a definite release of some kind. I felt slightly spacey afterward, but nothing significant until later in the day. A growing feeling of peace and balance began throughout my body, then into my being. It wasn’t that I was stressed or suffering from anything; my regular good day evolved into a VERY positive GREAT day.  There seemed to be a continuous euphoria in all I was doing and sensing. To call it a good mood is an understatement - I felt fantastic! After a couple days I realized that the sensation of the muscle behind my left ear stretching, relaxing, and releasing was a releasing of the TMJ that I've had for over 30 years. The pain has always appeared when I'm on an airplane, but when I flew this week, I did not have the TMJ pain, for the first time ever. If someone were in need of the benefits that Jan brings with her understanding of Access Consciousness, they would be well served to spend this time. If not, and you're just looking to kick-up your good spirits, Jan will raise your energy with her work."             ~ David

"My crown feels open. I feel more blended, more integrated with the space around me. My head feels open and clear, not crowded, not noisy. The consciousness expanding process was really pretty amazing. I feel so peaceful, like I don't want to even move. You have the sweetest, most soothing loving voice! What an incredible gift to give somebody, to give a whole part of your being in that way. (Next day) Can't thank you enough for such a beautiful session. I spent a long time after just sitting in my chair curling up with my cozy blue blanket and just a state of beingness. I am sure there will be downloads coming my way in the days to come. Your encouragement, support, and words of wisdom truly mean so very much to me."


~ Pam

"I had such a beautiful download tonight about something that happens inside me, that I could see so clearly is not me at all. It is something that holds me down, holds me's just a construct that I use to supposedly protect myself, but it is only taking away my life force. It was so clear to me that this is part of the session that you gave me, and it was so easy to define this thing as not being me, and sucking my life force. And that is exactly what your session was meant to do. So I think that is pretty Amazing how this has manifested for me. It makes me so immensely grateful for this gift you gave me and how much power you have and giving this gift.                        ~  🏻♥️🏻♥️"

"That was wonderful, particularly the crown chakra and going through my whole body. Lots of interesting flashes like my dad who passed and an old friend and childhood experiences and the things I learned about metaphysics and string theory... so I can move into the universe... just trippy I love it. The expansion was just very cool. It allowed me to go out of my thinking mind. Your whole presence is very relaxing and very much like a basin of comfort and you know that you're doing that here. You're just putting out this feeling of let me catch you. I can see now how just energy of a bad experience like in junior high where a negative comment from a teacher can stay with you and you don't know it. (Later) Thank you so much for the wonderful session today. I can tell I am processing in my whole being. I am embracing this entire experience! (Next day) I am mind traveling while enjoying my morning coffee and I was just thinking about your kind spirit and the release I am beginning to feel when your text popped up! I am sitting here crying  (just little sprinkles) while thinking about moving forward with a more free attitude. It is time to put on my big girl wild woman pants!!! Thank you for sharing your intuitive talents. ❣️   ~ Mary L.

"I feel so peaceful right now, like covered in a spiritual energy blanket. During the session, there were these birds...I feel like they were part of it, the human thing. I was feeling energy moving in and around my face. Even now I'm feeling something on this side, a tingling, like the energy is still there, relaxing my jaw and a little bit is relaxing the right side of my cheek. And then when  you played the audio at the end, I felt tingling all over my body. It's so beautiful. This is much deeper than when my friend did it to me 2 years ago. Plus, I'm in a different place. Also, some kind of shift is going on in my tummy cuz I've had some issues. And a message I was getting was, wait till February 18th to deal with my Hawaii trip, to just put all that aside cuz it's been too much on my head and just a feeling that everything is going to open up and it's going to be fine, cuz it's really important for me to do this trip. As far as the grieving, I'll see how that all plays out, but right now I feel light and there's no sadness around that. I actually felt him come in because I was asking, so that was cool. This was awesome. I look forward to feeling what else happens and shifts over the next few days."                                 ~ Mary

"I want you to know how much I value you and your words and your bravery and  allowing me to talk, without trying to correct me or make me feel wrong.  For me to cry is huge! I never cry in front of anyone. I haven't cried in I don't know how long...almost 20 years.  I have been just holding everything in. I needed to cry. So, thank you.      ~ Anonymous

"Jan helped me to feel safe and supportive. She's very intuitive. Her questions and clearing statement are profound and helped me to clear up all the beliefs that are ready to go. The session was really helpful. My original desire was to feel more in my essence. Immediately after, I feel more grounded and more in my body. At the end of the session, I received an inspiration to a question that I have been asking for a while and the answer that came was one I would never have considered. Now I feel more clear about the direction I want to go in and the action I need to take."    ~ Michelle

"I'd heard about Access Consciousness about a year ago and have been wanting a Bars session for a while now. Then I met you. I feel outstanding! Lightness resonates with me this morning. Thank you so much! "                              ~ Allan

Very relaxing. I loved it. I felt how much you love me!             ~ Austin

" 25 minutes into the session, the pain in my jaw that began from my cancer went away. Later in the day, I was struggling to try to renew my driver's license online, to no avail, so I just stopped and watched Eat, Pray, Love insteadI felt good this morning.  After breakfast I called the DMV and only had to wait 4 minutes for a person! He walked me through the online driver’s license procedure, and I had my license in a very short time. I just had a weird thing happen.  I thought my nephew was going to take me for my surgery on Monday (my birthday) but he just said that he couldn't.  That wasn’t the weird part.  What was weird was that I thought, laughingly, this is a good time for martyrdom!  I had asked 2 of my friends and they couldn’t do it either.  My neice just texted me and said that she could take me.  What a sweetheart!"                         ~ Franie
