Avatar Master Course
I finished my first Master Course yesterday in Egmond aan Zee. It was "awesome."
You say it! My son had an argument with one of his best friends, two days ago. They were playing some kind of computer game and disagreed on the outcome of it. As they were at my home, my son said to his friend: "Go home!" They had not talked to each other since. Two days after the argument, I asked my son what do you want to do (holiday period)? He wanted to call a friend to play with. All of his other friends were already engaged, so I challenged him, why don't you call M? His answer: he did not feel like it. I asked what is wrong? He told me the story. I asked how are you really feeling about it? In the end he said: I was afraid that the argument would escalate.
So I started the exercise on Transparent Beliefs. (I see now, I forgot to ask about: how do you prove your belief, however the process was OK). It took some time for him to understand the exercise, but in the end he obliged willingly and trusted me completely in directing the exercise! It turned out he was afraid to loose his friend "forever" if he would not have sent him away (after some: I don't knows, amongst others). I asked: do you still feel mad at him? He was! I told him: FEEL it! He was afraid it would last forever. I assured him, that it will go away very quickly if you really feel it (my serious drill!!). Very shortly, he told me: IT'S GONE! I asked, "What do you feel now?" He said: empty. I went over to him and cried on his shoulder, I have never been prouder to be able to help somebody in this way!
The word lesson and the life lesson coinciding! However he was still reluctant to phone his friend. The same transparent belief drill revealed: he was afraid to be rejected by M. Once this was clear to him, he objected no longer and phoned M. (to face the music!) Friends? M obliged, but was nor prepared to play with my son! Half an hour later M called back: "Do you really want to play with me?" "Yes, of course." They played together the rest of the day without any discord! My son and I kept hugging all day, unprecedented! After he phoned M, I told him, remember this for the rest of your life, it is most important! This I stated as a primary! He will never forget it!
