The Avatar® Course is not therapy, you don't have to be in some sort of trouble or "messed up" to take the course, and we don't dig into your past. Anyone and everyone can benefit from doing Avatar®. This is my story....
How do you get anywhere? You have to start from where you are, of course.
I was living with chronic depression and pain. Thanks to a loving, caring therapist and the "miracle of modern chemistry'" I had gotten to the point of being able to deal with the day-to-day ups and downs of life. However, anytime anything out of the ordinary happened, I would fall right back into the pits. On the surface, I had a life many people would envy - a loving husband, wonderful children, a supportive family and very close friends. But I rarely felt happy. I had pretty much come to the conclusion that I never would. I felt as if I was ready to take charge of my life; but I didn't really have a clue how to do it.
I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. My therapist took The Avatar® Course and she radiated such a wonderful inner peace afterward that when she had her Master come down and deliver the ReSurfacing® Workshop I decided to try it. Two hours into it, I was asking, "Where can I get more of this and how soon can I do it?" I was not sure what was going on, but something felt right to me.
I made arrangements to take the course a couple of weeks later. One of the first questions my Master asked me was, "Do you use any prescription or recreational drugs?" I told her yes, and no. I had been on Prozac for five years, and prescription painkillers on a fairly regular basis. She told me that while it was preferable for people not to be on medications while taking the course, under the circumstances it was probably best that I continue my Prozac.
Well, the main problem I ran into was that it seemed that there was a floor and a ceiling to what I could feel. Everyone else seemed to be achieving such remarkable breakthroughs, and here I was, muddling along. I had spent so much of my life numbing myself that I had literally forgotten how to feel; and what I hadn't forgotten I had blocked out with the medication. I kept plugging away at it, though, because I was determined I was going to finish the course, period. I could tell that something was going on inside me - fears I had harbored all my life were melting away like ice in the hot sun.
I wish I could describe the way I felt (yes, FELT!) when I finished The Avatar® Course. In those nine short days I had recovered the precious birthright I had lost for so long - happiness.
Some time later, it dawned on me that I was consistently forgetting to take my medication. I would go for two or three days at a time and then realize that I hadn't taken it. I decided that it was a crutch I no longer needed and in January I stopped taking it cold turkey. The next few weeks were, shall we say, interesting; but I handled them easily enough using the tools. Now I rarely even take aspirin. I realized that while medication may have helped me at one point in my life, it was now hindering me from experiencing life fully.
I guess the best way for me to describe the way things were before is to compare it to eating when you have a cold. Everything just kind of tastes the same. You know you are getting sustenance, but you don't get much enjoyment from it. Everything tastes...well you know how everything tastes when you have a cold!
Life is rich and vibrant for me now. I spent so much time in darkness, and all the time the light was within me. The Avatar® Course helped me to uncover it. How did I get to where I am now? I started from where I was. Avatar may just be the lifeline you are searching for. I know it was for me.
