Hi, I’m Marie-Claire Hayes! I have known for as long as I can remember that my life’s purpose was to help people to become better versions of themselves. I had no idea ‘HOW’ this was going to happen, I only knew that I had to trust the journey.
Growing up on the coast gave me the childhood of my dreams. Spending each and every day regardless of the weather at the beach or outdoors in the mountains. I have always been in awe of nature and the gift that it truly is to us, our beings and our bodies.
My parents gave me the space and the freedom to always just BE no matter what.
I was 8 years old when we moved up to Johannesburg from Cape Town and although my parents still planned lots of outdoor camping and hiking trips, there was something that just didn’t FEEL right for me and my body. The heaviness of the city seemed to be adding to my growing unease. However, The Universe knew I was in the right place, the experiences I have worked through have got me to where I am today and in the place where I am most required to be.
My dad reminded me often whenever I was battling at school, which seemed to be just about all the time, that I felt different because I was different. Struggling to fit in and gain acceptance while always suspecting I was aligned to a different, alternative purpose.
At the time I thought it was just what all parents told their children to make them feel better.The constant battle within myself and my body for feeling different is what finally led me to my very first encounter with the healing world.
After signing up for a Reiki Level 1 class in 1997 I felt for the first time that I actually ‘belonged’. I have never considered myself an Academic so the language of ENERGY came really easy to me. Although I didn’t SEE energy like others on the class, I just knew what I was perceiving and receiving and gifting through the Reiki Attunements and healing sessions was the real thing.
While still working full time in the Travel Industry I started using weekends and evenings to offer healing sessions, practicing what I loved.
Back then Reiki was still considered ‘Airy Fairy or Hocus Pocus’ and was not an “easy sell’. Despite this I followed my knowing, studying what resonated with me, gradually adding to my toolbox and growing my healing practice.
It is often said that Healers are the most wounded, it is how we are able to be so effective at assisting the healing process in others. For a long time, I felt as if I had to ‘fix’ people but in order to do this, I invariably had to take on their stuff. This put a fair amount of strain on my body and I eventually starting feeling tired and ineffective. For awhile I no longer enjoyed the process.
Then in 2012 – my life and world turned around in ways I could never have imagined possible.
I came upon the teachings of Access Consciousness ®️ and have never looked back.
I was reminded that we are not broken, far from it! We live in a world where the system has failed and broken us. Control, greed and ego rule. Parents, due to no fault of their own, have handed down decades and lifetimes of bad programming. Schools continue to put children into form and structure, placing them under extreme and unnecessary pressure.
Those who are ‘different’ are placed on medication, numbing them as they are far easier to deal with. A world where there is judgment and competition, draconian rules that serve only those in the controlling seat.
So now through the therapy of Access Bars®️ and the tools I learned in Access Consciousness®️, through living the talk and walking the walk, I get to work one on one with people: People who are ready to choose to embrace a life that is constantly filled with something different, something easier, something better, something far more fun and far more creative.
A life that is always filled with more possibilities than probabilities.
I created Keep It Conscious®️ to remind myself and others that if you are consciously aware of the life you are creating with your words and thoughts, then you are consciously aware of the choices you are making to create your life (good or not so good).
I invite you to step into my world and allow me to share the magic that is Access Bars and the Magic of Possibilities through the therapies I offer and the products I sell.
Much Gratitude, Love & magic Always,
