From very early on we learn to have points of view about everything and to defend our points of view. How many times a day are you defending for or against a judgement, belief, decision or conclusion you have made? How much space is there for you? What if you have a different choice? What's possible when you are willing to give up defending?
Access Consciousness Presents Beyond Saying Thank You

Have you ever noticed that sometimes life just feels easier? Especially when judgement, of you or anyone else, ceases to exist?
What if you could function from that space all the time? What if gratitude is the key?
Join our hosts and their guests for an exploration of creating from the space of gratitude. We're going beyond saying thank you and no topic is off limits.
What difference can you create in your life and the world from the energy, space and consciousness of gratitude?

Jonas Svensson has always had the knowing that there must be a greater possibility in the world. Constantly walking around wondering “What else is possible?” and asking “How else can I develop myself?” led him to all kinds of different techniques and modalities. But it wasn’t until Access Consciousness TM came in to his life that everything started to change towards what he was looking for. With the Access tools and techniques everything started to change with speed and ease, with the result of a totally different reality showing up.
From having the right career, nice title, good salary, and awesome benefits he chose to give it all up and follow his knowing of what he wanted to create as his life. “It must be possible for life to be more fun than this” was the source for just jumping and starting to create something else. Constant change towards more fun, more expansion and more consciousness every day has been the reality ever since.
With his background in marketing and sales as category manager, project leader and sales person within different companies, Jonas has developed a broad competence and expertise around creating and generating business.
As a Certified Access Facilitator, Jonas offers Access Consciousness core classes, private sessions, tele-classes and workshops in many areas such as money, relationships, conscious leadership and much more.
