and insights we are receiving from our students.
Avatar in Life
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.

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.

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.

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!
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!
Love from Sweden!
