How is consciousness different from spirituality?
Consciousness is very different from spirituality. Generally speaking, “spirituality” has the point of view that we have a spirit, (some call soul) that is separate from our body, and greater than or superior to our body. From this point of view, it is our spirit that is the most valuable part of us and our body that is considered a limitation to be overcome. Spirituality says that it is our spirit that will ascend to heaven, a higher plane or dimension, greater reality, or greater consciousness and that our spirit is the part of us that makes us closest to God or able to be in Heaven.
Consciousness includes everything without judgment. As consciousness there is no separation, there are no parts, only oneness. Everything in the entire universe is included in oneness and consciousness. As oneness we have an identity that is different from others, or different than say a tree. Yet we energetically are inseparable from anyone or anything. There are different energies, yet everything is energy.
We all have the capacity to function as the consciousness we truly are. Mostly we have been taught how to function from anti-consciousness and unconsciousness. It is actually just a choice to function from anti-consciousness and unconsciousness or the consciousness we truly can be and really are.
As "consciousness" you are an infinite being, who is energy, space and consciousness. That is what makes up our being. If we were functioning as the infinite being, the energy, the space and the consciousness we truly are, we would have infinite perceiving, knowing, being and receiving.
What does that mean? You would know everything accurately. You would perceive everything that is. You would always be who you truly are and you could be, do, have, create and generate anything at will and choice. You would receive all that life has to offer, as is; the good, the bad and the ugly would come to you with ease and joy and glory. (Glory is the exuberant expression and abundance of living.)
How does Access work?
Access empowers you to know that you know. What does that mean, exactly?
It’s not about book or brain knowledge; it’s a knowing that comes from something other than your mind. Access calls it Knowing. Knowing is easy and effortless.
The tools in Access are designed to be practical, efficient and effective. The more you use the tools combined with your awareness, the more ease with change and the more change you can create in all areas of your life.
Access shines a light on those areas in life where most people have swept the good, the bad the ugly under a carpet or shoved it in a corner for no one to see, including them. Access shows you where you’ve been cutting off your awareness, hiding your capacities, living in judgment in order to survive, to fit in, to benefit and to not lose.
It does so through giving you practical, simple tools to change what hasn’t been working (finances, relationships, work, business, parenting, etc.) into something that does. It also assists your body to let go of the residue and stress that’s been created in your body through trillions of years of being unaware and trying to get life right. When your body can let go and when you let go of functioning from thinking or feeling, you become free to BE who you really are, not who you’ve been pretending to be or not to be. You start to have ease with all aspects of living, and change becomes easier and a way of being. You start to change from being at the effect of circumstances to creating and generating a life that works for you, not against you.
How quickly can I change the things in my life that are not working as I would like?
As fast as it takes you to choose something different or to ask a question. As for the clearing statement, you will get results from the very first time you use it to change something in your life. The more you repeat the same clearing statement, the more quickly, deeply and dynamically the change will be in regards to what you are using the clearing statement for.
Most people have been creating the limitation or problem in their life for a very long time, maybe lots of lifetimes, so it may take using the clearing statement on a particular subject for days, weeks, months or years to get all the change you are looking for.
How fast things change is really up to you. Are willing to have your life change quickly and easily? Truth? Or, might it take awhile?
If you could get over a problem you have had for 10 years, in just 10 weeks, would it be worth it?Top
What is The Clearing Statement® and how does it work?
Your points of view about life create your reality, thus creating what shows up in your life. The great thing is you have the ability to change your point of view about anything and by simply changing your point of view, your reality and your life will start to show up differently.
So, when you destroy and uncreate everything you have decided or concluded about something, (for example, I shouldn't sing in public because I have a bad voice) the clearing statement goes to the place where you first locked it in as real and true, no matter if it was this lifetime or many lifetimes ago, and erases what ever holds that fixed belief, consideration, conclusion, in place. All the energy you had locked in place based on that decision changes throughout all lifetimes and suddenly your life right here, right now can show up differently. You are no longer bound and determined to have to function from that particular conclusion or decision.
Yes, it is probably the weirdest thing ever! And it totally works every time!! We invite you to play with this, try it for yourself, and see what happens.
You don’t have to believe in it for it to work.
It is too easy and you don’t have to make it more difficult to have it work for you.
What if you didn’t have to know how it works, only that it works?
You also never have to identify the limitation or problem, or when it started, or who you bought it from, or why, or how. None of that is relevant to the fact that you can change it just by asking.
Where do I start?
You’re here. That’s the first step. Next step? Choose what will work for you.
There are many ways to be introduced to the tools of Access Consciousness.
For example, everyday of the week you can find an online radio show on the topics and tools of Access. We also have certified facilitators offering regular classes in 48 countries around the world and if that’s not enough, there are regularly scheduled classes video streamed online or available in a teleclass format. So, the question is, what exactly are you looking for?

What are the Access Consciousness Core Classes & Who Can Attend?
Access Consciousness offers seven Core Classes and many specialty classes, which are all designed to give you greater ease, joy, abundance, choice and possibilities in your life. Many of the core classes have prerequisites that allow participants to move through the advanced classes very quickly if desired.
A comprehensive manual is provided in Bars through to Level 3 classes containing detailed explanations, processes and tools discussed in class by the class facilitators. You will expand your awareness of what change is possible for you by asking questions of your facilitator. The advanced classes are free-form and class recordings enable you to go to deeper levels each time you listen.
Kids aged 15 and under may come for free to all the classes around the world. Ages 16-18 pay half price. Everyone is invited and included in Access Consciousness and your presence is considered a contribution to a greater possibility.
The Core Classes listed below can expand your capacity for consciousness so that you have greater awareness about you, your life, this reality and beyond. With greater awareness, you can begin generating the life you always knew was possible and haven’t yet created.

What is the Access Consciousness Pricing Policy?
What do I pay in different countries?
Do I have to give up anything to do Access?
Excerpted from Chutisa Bowman's Blog Post:
Access Consciousness cannot successfully propagate as a cult since it encourages people to perceive and to know and to acknowledge that ‘No one and nothing is more valuable than your consciousness and your choice and most importantly to never give up your point of view for somebody else.’"
Access Consciousness does not require you to take the point of view about anything. It does not require you to believe anything. You do not even have to believe the Access Consciousness tools will work in order to learn them and practice them successfully. It facilitates you to get what your point of view is, since you are the one who knows everything about your life and what’s right for your life.
Access advises you to only give up your point of view if you see it as a limitation. Access Consciousness has no answers, only questions."
So….. Is Access Consciousness a cult or is it a source of empowerment?

Is Access Hiring?
We get hundreds of requests to work with us every year. The short answer is: Access never really hires… and at the same time Access is always hiring!
Working with Access Consciousness is a little different. We almost never have positions to fill. You will never see a post for a job opening. Most people have created their own jobs by being incredible at something and stepping up to do it at the right time.
We are continuously looking for brilliant, creative, quick, committed people who are great at what they do and will expand consciousness on the planet.
The best way to knock our socks off… is to knock our socks off!
Show us- don't tell us- what you can do for Access, how you can expand things or take something to the next level. We are looking for the best, and we will ask you to prove it!
You'll also want to come to classes and introduce yourself to us there as well! Most people who work with Access are certified facilitators or have been to multiple 7 day events. While that is not a requirement we find it is much easier to work with others who are truly using the tools and who have a similar target. We work together in a very unique way that demands a great deal from people.
Lastly, you can always approach a certified facilitator individually. Many of them are also looking for truly great help. What can you do? What do you know?
What is the refund policy for attending classes?
Our refund policy is that if you attend a class that is only one day or less, then you must request your refund in the first hour of class and leave.
Any class that is more than one day you much request a refund in the first day and leave then.
If you attend the entire class then you do not get a refund as you have been delivered all the material already in both listening and any printed materials.
If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
