I recently delivered the Avatar Course in Sydney and I think that this course has changed my life forever. We have a 12 and a half year old son who as a young child was the most incredibly sensitive and beautiful person that you would ever meet , look into his eyes and he would melt your heart. He was vulnerable and an incredible soul. As a pre-teen , however, we had noticed many changes in him which manifested themselves as the development of anger and attitude. What had happened ? Most people would just write this off to adolescence. Totally normal they would say. This didn't feel right to me. Seemed like just accepting someone else's answer.
My son has done The Avatar course and he absolutely loved it , taking him through the course was the most amazing week that we have had together. My wife and I are Avatar Masters and Wizards and we love our kids more than anything but we were out of alignment with each other, not really connected and having lots of frustration and arguments that was having a very undesirable effect on our children.
One day during the Sydney course I took my son into the course room and one of the Avatar Trainers asked me what had my wife and I been doing to him ? She could feel the anger hardening within him. Why were we not taking responsibility ? I love the Trainers with their incredible kindness and guardian hearts, they just tell it like it is. I immediately felt what I was previously unable to feel. The conflict in our house , disconnection and misalignment had been magnified and was showing up in his consciousness. I just knew it. He had been such a kind , soft and caring soul and whilst he was not what you would consider an angry person , anger had been developing and hardening within him.
To the outside world we were good parents, we were doing all of the right things in running him to sports and friends. We even had perfected the "happy face" and "its all good" and "no problem here". What self-deception! We were not showing up for him. I looked at my son and cried tears of shame about my own lack of responsibility. This was probably the worst that I ever felt. When I spoke to my wife about what had happened she also immediately knew and at that point, together, we both felt the shame for what we had done. From this place, however, we were able take responsibility and really show up for him.
My son and I were already registered to go to The Masters Course in April in Australia but in his heart he wanted to go to the next Masters course in the US. There way no way he would let himself feel that because he did not want to create conflict between my wife and I. We were witnessing the beginning of the shut down of of inspiration, it felt like a documentary where you see in slow motion the sequence of events that would eventually lead him to not letting himself feel what might be possible in his life and move into the calculation game.
Even if I had asked him to come with me to the US he would have said no. The only way that it would be possible to keep his inspiration awake was for my wife and I to be completely aligned in consciousness then he would feel it. We both knew what we had to do and we did it and he immediately got very excited about going to US to do The Masters Course , and well here we are in Altamonte Springs , Orlando, Florida along with a whole table full of Australian and New Zealand kids . It is very inspiring to be here.
How do we thank you ?
The only way that I know is to continue to work had at awakening the people on the planet using the incredible Avatar tools. More Avatars , Masters and Wizards = more Kindness , Care and Compassion in the world. I do this work full-time and I love it.
Lots of Love
