and insights we are receiving from our students.
Harry, I had a fantastic day with my Mini Course, Basic Will. I especially found the release of worries very freeing. My primaries just flowed once I experienced turning some worries on and off. Much Gratitude.
On The Avatar Course, I discreated the beliefs that had created a life-long back problem. I had suffered a lot (including spinal surgery) and was afraid to move much for fear of being incapacitated. I walked away from the 9-day course with a strong back!
After 14 years of trying to quit smoking, I finally succeeded with the Avatar tools. It was effortless and complete-I haven't had one craving or any attention on smoking since that time four years ago.
These are only two of the major successes that I have had with Avatar. There are too many to describe, and some I simply have no words for. I have had so many big wins, but this year at The Wizard Course I topped them all.
I have had a problem all of my life that I couldn't figure out and that I felt hopeless to control. I would cry (uncontrollably at times) in situations where this response was totally inappropriate. You can imagine my embarrassment as I went through life trying to avoid situations that I thought might cause this inappropriate response. Unfortunately, I wasn't sure what those situations were. I cried in school and alienated others. I cried in front of co-workers and managers-not a real career boost. I cried in my marriage and put my husband in an uneasy position. It affected everything I did. Try as I did, I couldn't get to the bottom of it because my resistance to it was so strong.
I went to Wizards this year with the intention to handle two "problems" that had plagued my whole life. One was my inability to get out of my comfort zone, and one was my compulsion with food and my weight. I ran these on every process and made a lot of progress, but it wasn't until the last process that it all unraveled.
The morning we started the last process, my inappropriate crying showed up, and I knew it was time to get it handled. While running the process, I had an incredible experience and suddenly knew the beliefs behind all of my crying and food compulsions. I had created beliefs linking disapproval, uncontrollable crying, and hunger. Reviewing my life with this new perspective explains so much.
After discreating these core beliefs, I have been experiencing life quite differently. I no longer filter everything through the need to avoid disapproval. It is as if I have stepped into a whole new life: I have very little attention on food, my body is returning to a healthy weight, and I'm getting out and meeting people with confidence.
On top of all of this, I get to do what I love best-help others in their self-discovery.
Words can not express my gratitude. From my soul-Thank You!
I had a conscious realization every time I did anything in Avatar that the results were always much more than I expected or anticipated. I never was disappointed, it wasn't even part of this question how great it was, and it was always big. And Wizards has proven to be the same pattern.
For us now the Sikh lifestyle and the yoga meditation are very much aligned with the Avatar, it's all a way to access the spirit and it's a way to access your source, and it's a way to deeply experience. It's all very experiential; the yoga is very experiential, the Sikh practice is very experiential, so it's no misalignment with the Avatar at all.
