Avatar Empowers My Girls

Dear Harry,

Two weeks ago, my six year old daughter started crying in a moment of frustration and then she stopped and told me -

"Mom, I don't know what is going on with me, I cry over the smallest things. I don't like it".

We started to chat in the garden and got interested in that. She recently started going to school with a lot of new rules and new kids. Then she realized she was experiencing feeling helpless when other children in class misbehaved and everyone got punished. She was instantly relieved when she had that insight.

Then I asked her if there was anything I could do with her to help her, and she asked to do the source list. I coached her and five minutes later she was all relaxed. She asked we do another drill and then she smiled and rushed back home to play.

The following week she was having fun in school and making new friends. The teacher said she was shining.

Thank you Harry! What a gift to be able to share these tools with my girls and empower them to be source over their lives.

Love,

Some Lessons In My Life

Dear Avra and Harry,

I'd like to share how grateful I am for having the Avatar tools in my life. This week is my last week at my current workplace and since I got back from Wizards I had the feeling to leave. Since then, I've been through some lessons in my life, some of them were not the easiest to take, and my journey was all about finding my own reference point.

I am thankful that I can see, that there is nothing wrong with my job or the people I'm surrounded by there. I am leaving without any feeling of righteousness. I know now, what matters is that I stay in my wisdom and from there just give the space and love. Being curious to get the other one. Before, I was busy with trying to get attention, just like a puppy.

I wish I would have known this when I started to work here. I can feel me from here, in the past situations, and I also can feel my ignorance and the confusion it created.

I am grateful for the tools and for the perspective, that I can always take no matter what: it's never too late and I can start to get better just now!

My heart is full and ready to give and I know where I am.

Love,

Everything that You Experience

Hi Harry,

I just have to share this win with you.

So upon hearing about an incident between my 11 year old niece and her step father I instantaneously decided that this was really the last straw. And by that I mean I was no longer going to support her being a victim. If ever I have made a decision as a Source Being Harry this was it.

And before I share the win, I need to add why I felt so empowered to really go for it. It was because at Wizards this year I took responsibility for what I created as a child. Mostly around my father and the experiences/ creations I created. I can't begin to express my joy at this integration. And also because I witnessed another student do the same. I feel very grateful towards her for her courage and a relentlessness that still wells me up when I think about it.

So when the moment presented itself, I expressed to her that it was time for her to start taking responsibility for what she experiences. She replied with "do you mean with what happened with my step-dad?". But my intention for her was/is so far beyond that that I said "no I mean everything that you experience". She felt me. And through some light conversations about her late father, what she'd prefer to experience and her attention, things just led me to demonstrating Restoring Attention Exercise. She got it. And we pretty much left things there.

So here is the win ( as if demonstrating a Resurfacing Exercise wasn't it lol). Olivia played netball later that afternoon. A few days later I found out from her mother that she played the best game she has ever played. I instantly tied this to me connecting with her that morning. But it was only just now that I spoke to her and she told me that she did the exercise right before she played netball. And further more she's been randomly using it and embracing it. I actually feel silly for feeling that this being who looks up to me, who placed their hope in me, would do anything but. I told her how and when I use this exercise. I gave a couple more examples as to when she could choose to use it. And again, we pretty much left it there.

Harry, I can't tell you how my relationship with her has changed. I feel like I am seeing her as a Source Being as opposed to "my niece". My reverence, patience and appreciation for her have increased dramatically. Not to mention the elation my mother is feeling right now, or the follow on affect for Olivia and the rest of my family.

I feel grateful to be able to support her (and my family) in this way. I sincerely appreciate you Harry for creating/ discovering the Avatar materials. Thank you so much. Thank you for all the stretches you have made, for all the work you have put in to support others and to light the path.

I appreciate you Harry.

Love,

I Was On Automatic

Dear Harry,


People have asked me why do I keep doing Avatar courses. Here is one big reason! Before Avatar I never knew aspects of who I was that were on automatic including self-importance, my resistance, judgments, victimhood, attacking others, causing suffering, my pretense, dishonesty, and self deception. Everyone wants to conquer their own limitations, but may not know how. Thanks for helping me learn how to conquer mine!

An Easy Enough Problem

In June 2012 I had the privilege to deliver the precious Avatar Course to my entire family, husband and three 17-year olds in Holland. Many wonderful things happened and we now have a common language and we frequently use the tools.

However, sometimes one just forgets the greatness of the materials, so when one of the boys stumbled across some technical problems with his very precious car, he became more and more fixed on the problem. For several days father and son worked relentlessly on fixing the problem with the car, but nothing happened. It seemed to be an easy enough problem, but it just would not solve!

All of a sudden, I realized that the problem was not actually a technical problem! It was a fixed viewpoint combined with a great deal of resistance! When this occurred to me we were in another car driving. I coached my son through an exercise from the Avatar Course where he could remove his resistance to the whole situation. It took at maximum a few minutes and he was shining again! :-)

One hour later, the technical problem with the car was solved and fixed once and for all!!! My son said to me "Mum, how can people live without Avatar???" I answered "Truthfully, I don't know. I only know that having Avatar in your life is true bliss and I wish EVERYONE this! "
I remember a quote from you, Harry: "Machines may mysteriously malfunction in the presence of seriousness". Thank you!

Feeling Blissful and Empowered

Dear Harry,
 
I have always been someone who 'depended' on others, which sapped me of some, or more than some, of my creative powers—but no longer.
 
I stretched to book a ticket to Austin, Texas on my last Avatar delivery.  I spent five days playing and clearing space for me to create the next phase of my life here in the United States. I moved here from India one year ago. A decision that occurred while on an advanced Avatar Course, called Wizards.
 
I felt very sad and insecure the day after I arrived home from my trip to Austin. So I called three Avatar Masters who have become the kind of friends that I thought each human being only deserves one of, but thanks to Avatar, I have umpteen. These three soul friends, calming me with their caring attention, gave me their loving listening and heartfelt compassion, nurturing me through one of the biggest stretches of my entire life. They urged me to put my attention on others and try my best to be of service. This was very easy, because as an Avatar Master I have met many people and had many opportunities to do this. 
 
So after a weekend of celebrating others, I awoke today, refreshed and alive. My dream, at 44, is to move out on my own and live a creative life full of empowerment and this dream is now manifesting. 
 
I walk away from this 'giving' weekend and my family is aligned and excited with my dream, ready to drive the truck down to Texas as I prepare for my move. My sister wants to help me create a to-do list and do some things for me and with me. My mom can't wait to see me succeed. My brother is scouting out a car for me that is fun and efficient. My dad is bringing elements for me to start my spa practice down there. 
 
It is funny, the minute I decided that I don't need anyone and I'll do it on my own, many show up willingly, to help. 
 
I have cleared my space and my room. Money is flowing in abundantly and into my bank account it goes. As I played my music loud and threw away the old me, stuff that is no longer alive and vibrating with possibility, I realized that my path has been like Buddha's story. I came from affluence, so letting go and making it on my own was always scary to me. Now the missing piece of the puzzle is in... I'm willing to work hard and do what it takes to fulfill every dream and leave the world in a better place.
 
This is due to my will and grace. Tools that Avatar has empowered me with.
 
I hope this will inspire others to reach for the stars as I have.

Avatar what is lacking in society

Dear Harry,

Thank you for taking a few moments to read a letter commending your work in making the world a better place.

For the past 8 years, our company has had the pleasure of providing transportation for those attendees coming to all of the Star's Edge Conferences held in the Orlando area. During that time, we've met many people coming to their first conference. Some are expectant and excited, others clearly not at peace with themselves. On the return trip, these same people appear peaceful, joyful and changed. We have had specific experiences when incoming passengers were rude or unkind at the airport, but took the time to apologize to us on the way home. That really underscores their change!

We appreciate and value the principles of integrity and compassion that are taught and displayed through Avatar. This is what is lacking in much of society today and your efforts to change that trend are impressive.

In 2004, when we were first approached about providing affordable transportation to Avatar conferences we didn't realize that our relationship with Avatar and Star's Edge would become so much more than that. We have seen students come, go and return, year after year. We have become warm friends with many of the Masters, keeping in touch during severe illness, traumatic life events, and in some cases their passing.

Over the years, we've met their spouses, children and grandchildren as each one begins their Avatar journey. Now, every conference held in Orlando gives us an opportunity to see the growth present in each Avatar as they apply the principles they've learned at the International, Masters, and Integrity, Pro and Wizards courses.

I would like to extend warm holiday wishes to you and Avra. Certainly, 2013 will be another year of growth and prosperity!

Kind regards–Leon A. DaCosta

Conquering my Limitations

Dear Harry and Avra,

People often ask me why I keep doing Avatar Courses. There are some aspects of who I was that were invisible to me before doing Avatar. Before Avatar I was full of self-importance, judgments, victim hood, dishonesty, self-deception, and my pretense. Acting through my own resistance I was attacking others and causing suffering.

Everyone wants to conquer their limitations, but may not know how. Thanks for helping me to conquer mine.

Love,

Cherry Pehar–Australia

Use Avatar tools regularly

Hi Harry,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all the work you've done to bring Avatar to the world.

I use the tools regularly and in the 10+ years since I first took Resurfacing and all the courses up though Wizards (and two wonderful internships!), my wife and I have rebuilt our marriage, launched two highly successful sons on the world, changed careers, started a new business and I've taken up ultra-marathoning!  I'm attempting a 50 mile race on June 2!

You and Avra and many other great Trainers and Masters have my unending gratitude!

Thank you, again,

True Freedom

Dear Harry,

Thank you for these incredible Avatar tools! A few days ago I went for a 30 minute walk doing the exercise from ReSurfacing "Minding the Edges". I experienced true freedom for the first time. I realized and experienced being outside of a life time creation of fight or flight.

As I felt the freedom, I also felt how painfully limiting this identity was to everything. Cowering from all of life's offerings is like experiencing them through a narrow tube.

So much attention was tied up in this and I believe also supporting many other identities. That structure feels like it is collapsing. For the first time I feel like I am not afraid to be seen.

Thank you for the light you have shed onto a dark world. Along with our wonderful Sangha! Love to you and Avra,

The ability to change

Dear Harry,

I watched a Video about a handicapped veteran that fought through obstacles and limiting beliefs and using his will he lost lots of wieght, got rid of his handicap and came out strong and able. This brought back a lot of memories from my Avatar Course. Thank you for inspiring and helping people to believe in themselves, others, the ability to change and creating the impossibly possible goals for their life. :)
