DISABILITIES OR ABILITIES?
WHAT IF AUTISM, OCD, ADD AND ADHD ARE ABILITIES?
Evidence is now coming forth that the labeled people of the world may have abilities and we need to explore these not judge. This is the invitation to the access X-Men body of work.
In Access we affectionately call these people X-Men. They actually have brilliant abilities in lots of different areas that can sometimes go unnoticed, or even be hidden away for years. Is it time to discover what those capacities are? What would it be like to learn the language these people are speaking rather than get them to be more like us?
What if the X-Men (or you!) are just the beginning of what else could be possible on the planet?
WHAT IF WHAT IS CONSIDERED DISABILITY IS ACTUALLY AN ABILITY NOT YET DISCOVERED?
I was asked to write a small piece on my journey to becoming the Creative Producer for Access X-Men, a very simple request right?
NOPE!!! Not for me! Haha ….you see I am an X-Men.
Communicating in words that which is so exciting and honoring to me is never an easy task having ADD, ADHD, OCD, Dyslexia, and Autism all rolled into one. So you’ll excuse me if the next bit makes no sense in the written word at all.
CONFESSIONS OF A XIF
I grew up thinking I was a bit mad. I was told that often enough. “Do you know you’re crazy thinking that …” “What do you mean you see what’s going to happen? Don’t be silly.” “Goodness, your imagination?!”
I was made wrong for a lot of what I was aware of. With all those projections on me, I was told I was many things. Weird, a little crazy, stupid , and a nutter. Kind friends I had, huh?
In fact, I wasn’t crazy. I was just aware in a different way.
Have you ever wondered why it is that some people are more prone to being ‘sensitive’ to the world around them than others? Welcome to the X-Men of our world! They are the brilliant people who are so honed in energetically to the world around them that on the outside they appear to be ‘sensitive’, but what if what they really are is aware?
One of the things that the ‘sensitive’ or ‘introverted’ or labelled people in our world get asked a lot, is ‘why are you so sad?’ or ‘why are you so sensitive?’. But how often does that question actually help, and how often does it just make the person being asked feel worse about themselves?
YOU ARE NOT WRONG. YOU ARE JUST DIFFERENT.
One of the ways that we as X-Men are different is in the way in which we perceive the world. Autism is a word used to describe a “spectrum” of people who don’t fit the box of “normal”.
I am one of these people to which degree I do not care to define. What is true for me is I am different. I desire something different and this reality is not enough. I will do my best to show you through my eyes how I see the world. Do not buy it as true, real or significant. It’s all just an interesting point of view.
For me, being an X-Men is questioning everything;
X-MEN IN ACTION
No longer do I make myself wrong for the lists that I write to organize my days, for checking the burners twice before I leave the house, for having so many projects on the go at once, for the piles on my desk, for counting in my head the steps I take.
I am an X-Men and I create in a very different way.
WHAT ARE THE X-MEN SPECIALTY CLASSES?

X-Men: Disabilities or Abilities – 2 Day Class
There are many so-called dis-eases that can be transformed into greater possibilities for living using the tools of Access Consciousness®. In this specialist class, we will talk about some very practical tools that create totally different possibilities for people who are labeled ‘disabled’ or who have ‘incurable’ illnesses. What if they (or you!) are just the start of what else could be possible on our planet? Would you like to create a very different future? When we use these abilities to our advantage, we can!

Last month saw the brilliance of Diva Diaz facilitation with the X-Men tools Live and Live Streamed From UK. 3 days of X-Men classes. I loved the exploration and play and the 5 elements of intimacy that showed up in class . 5 elements of Intimacy …
Honor, Trust, Allowance, Gratitude, Vulnerability
What do being those with your X-Men capacities create ?
CLASSES AVAILABLE NOW!
The intimacy that gets created in an Access class comes from what everyone is willing to be and choose and the allowance you have for each other. It’s the space you create by not choosing against anything, or telling a story or fighting as a way to keep others away from you, which creates intimacy. And you can choose to be that in a room of 50, 100 or 1000 people and have it be totally intimate.

MEET DIVA DIAZ
She developed an ease in dealing with the symptoms and behaviours of people that have been labelled. She has always had the capacity not only to connect with people that have disabilities, but to see the person behind the disability and facilitate change from that unique space.
When she came across Access Consciousness® she instantly recognised that what it offers is what she had been looking for: pragmatic tools that work, empower you to know, and create the change that is truly possible in the world.
She continues to travel the world while working with Access Consciousness® and facilitating classes and workshops on what she practices daily in life and business. See more about Diva Diaz here
