What's Behind Gary Douglas's Scientology Knockoff?

Access Consciousness promises to help you reach a higher plane. For a price.

Right away, this helps deepen the humanoid-human rift.

The wordplay doesn't stop there. Humanoids confuse humans with their definition of "sex." Instead of using commonly accepted meanings, Access tackles the issue by suggesting humanoids apply six terms to what the rest of us consider sex: "Sex is what occurs when 'you're looking good, feeling good, and strutting your stuff'"; "Sexuality...is how we define who we will and will not receive the flows of sexual energy from"; "Sexualness...is the energy of life itself. It's the energy of caring, nurturing, joy, healing, the creativity, the excitement, the expansiveness, and the orgasmic quality of living"; "Sensuality refers to the nurturing and touching that bodies love"; "Copulation...is the act of sexual intercourse"; "Orgasm...is orgasm as experienced during copulation, but also any other experience of extreme intense joy in your body."

Now that you understand where Access is coming from, you can understand Douglas's opinion, as expressed on Access's blog, that "young children are incredibly sexy" and "in cutting off the sexual energy, which is a major component of true caring, parents cut off their sexual energy towards their children and require their children to cut off their own sexual energy as well." Crystal clear.

Access's broad position that it has its own language gives Accessories the wiggle room to accuse human publications like the Press of taking the following Access statements "out of context."

• Everything is just an interesting point of view. It is neither right nor wrong, nor good nor bad. If you do this for every thought, feeling, emotion and point of view you have, for 6 months, you will never have a problem again for the rest of your life

• There are three elements to creating the foundation for a good relationship (everything else is just a bonus): the person is good in bed, they provide money, they allow you to do whatever the fuck you want to do when you want to do it and you allow them to do whatever the fuck they want to do when they want to do it

• Humanoid women are much better off having three men in their life — and having sex with all three of them. One to watch movies with and sleep with, one to go to formal events with and he's a good dancer and socially acceptable and you could sleep with him, and one that you could take to picnics and family events and he would act right and be good and your family would approve of him and you could sleep with him

• If your family is human and they have no money, you can divorce them

• The only evil that exists in the world is total unconsciousness or anti-consciousness

• Molecular de-manifestation is where you make something go away that does exist, again by talking with the molecules. You can do this for tumors and unwanted pregnancies, for example

• For humanoids, the four basic food groups are sugar, salt, water, energy

• If this doesn't make logical sense to your mind, be grateful. Our point of view in Access is, "A mind is a dangerous thing, waste it." If you're thinking, you're stinking

Do you think sexual energy/aliveness is the same as the sex act?

An interesting article other than many things were taken out of context.  I have enjoyed Access Classes for the past several years and have found the tools that I have learned to be very helpful in my life.  I attend about one class per year, and I use many of the tools; Asking questions rather than coming to conclusions, choosing to have an "Interesting Point of View" about things rather than using judgment, not being in competition with others or excluding others, and have found that the Bars really work to calm my mind and body.  I am more aware, healthier, happier, successful in my marriage, my business, being a Mother and a good friend.  

I had tried many other systems, trainings, and modalities that never worked for me long-term.  I had never found tools that I could use on a daily basis that helped me become more present and aware.  I feel I have more choices and abundance in my life as a result of these classes, and that I contribute more to others because I am kinder, have more allowance, and less judgment. 

I am grateful for Gary Douglas, Dain Heer, and the Access Team for these tools and have found them to be very valuable in my life.

If the AccessBARS healing modality didn't work as well as it does with clearing emotional garbage, I would be inclined to agree with some of the points in your article. Craig, if you closet-pedophiles at Houston Press could only get over Gary's "children are sexy comment", by that I mean resist to urge to incessantly take it out of context, this might have been one fine and perhaps un-biased (lofty wish) article. Now stop being barking dogs for your right-wing media conglomerate culture-manipulating masters, and go learn how to be true journalists. As for those that spent too much money on Access Consciousness classes, well, was anyone pointing a gun to your head, forcing you to give up your credit card number?

Began using AC tools a few years ago. Learned  through the level of "Certified Facilitator." AC is no different than many other 'courses' in awakening awareness, only different in form. It's quite a scam though when you get to spending the money in order to make the money. Of course if you have a problem with that, or a question or a criticism you can just destroy and uncreate it, lol! I'm not broke by it, but I've spent way more than I've made and the continuing education requirements are far greater than any license I've ever held before. It can be upwards of 4000 just to hold your certification each year. That doesn't include travel, lodging and other incidentals. Gary is, in many ways a crock who asks for feedback (sometimes) but can't receive it. He's crassly profane and thinks he's class. He's full of judgments in his own right and no master by a long shot. Gary also believes that he's far more aware than other people. He's not. Dain is incredibly loving and talented. There are many truly lovely, authentic people in this group. But really, I'm done paying thousands for all of this. I already have everything I want and need, am extraordinary happy and at peace. Access tools helped me some along the way, but by no means were the foundation, for me anyway. For some, it's just the ticket, and they're not crazy or scary at all. Super healing talent going on among those active in this group. And a lot of crock too. I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole if I had it to do again. There's equally and more effective healing for free or pennies compared to what you'll spend here. And you will spend it.

Wonderful article! I'm so glad to see an exposé like this in mainstream media. People get scammed by the Access Consciousness group and others like them all the time. The teachings are not helpful and in many cases are harmful. Relationships are destroyed, people ignore reality and find themselves in a state of financial ruin, and ignore serious illness. Some wake up from the spell, others do not. (I'd love to se an Abraham-Hicks exposé someday, hint hint.)

My bartender should start his own religion. He exudes a welcoming spirit; I can't sit down in front of the guy without confessing my sins. And no matter how lousy I felt when I walked into the bar, I always feel better when I leave, especially after five or six rounds of the communion cup.

Read the first page. Reminded me of when I started my own religion, the Brotherhood of Dasypus, just on a lark. I was preaching all kinds of nonsense, thinking everybody was in on the joke. I quit when I started getting converts. Made me realize just how gullible people are. Actually, it scared the shit out of me that people were so stupid and that I might wind up somehow responsible for them. These days, I'm a Zen Presbyterian, something else I invented, but I don't accept converts and never, ever explain what it's all about.

I am at the moment an unemployed single Swedish guy that started using tools from Access Consciousness 3.5 years ago.  4 years ago when I was unemployed, I was constantly worrying if everything would turn out well, I would have loads of hard work getting a new job and if money was getting low I would complain to/with my parents and they would help me.  Today I am enjoying life, not judging myself for not having a job and talking with women is 5-50 easier than before Access.  The self esteem and self value are so much higher, and if the women I talk to do not like me, I do not care (because I couldnt force them to like me anyway). Craig, thank you for writing the article.  It made me be even more grateful for where I am today.  And you know what, since you are probably a humanoid, I guess we will see you in Access Consciousness within 5-10 years from now....  Good luck resisting!Regards

Power of positive thinking, Scientology (and Elron was Totally Evil), some mass hypnosis and feelgood social grouping, and Wallah - another Zombie.

 

The method of raising consciousness is very old, free, works, and is free of any trappings - simple meditation (also good for lowering blood pressure).

I am a Christian that has practiced AC for a few years now and I am very grateful for their life changing tools.  I have been climbing out of abuse, emotional and addiction issues since childhood and have found the clearing tools and BARS techniques to be very transforming and mind opening.  The AC philosophies offer very different point of views to approaching life which has helped me break though and out of abusive "operating systems" and into more ease, joy and glory.  Thank you Gary Douglas and Dain Heer.  Keep being you.  How does it get better than this?

Great article.  A first-rate take down of this pernicious group.  I hope that as scientology continues to burn to the ground there's a flash point - a point in time that generates such public interest that the media can take a long breath and explain how ALL cults work.

Got a friend whose lost in this cult, she sounds like a parrot repeating the same Access mantras all over. Not sure how much she has spent on it, but she has really bought in and lost many of her closest friends. The article sounds like it's all very obvious, but they are quite subte, targeting health and NLP professionals to spread the beliefs. Worrying...

One manipulative, quackery-pushing, profit-driven cult (Scientology) begets another (Access).  Not really surprising.  The most important lesson one learns in Scientology is that there's a sucker born every minute.
