The mission of Avatar in the world is to catalyze the integration of belief systems. When we perceive that the only difference between us is our beliefs and that beliefs can be created or discreated with ease, the right and wrong game will wind down, a co-create game will unfold, and world peace will ensue.
Avatar is a nine-day self-empowerment training delivered by an Avatar Master. The Avatar tools are a synergy of exercises, drills, and procedures that when properly understood and used increase your ability to live deliberately. They are remarkably effective and efficient tools for taking control of your life. If you need to identify and resolve a self-sabotaging belief or behavior, the Avatar tools can help. If you want to create a harmonious relationship, or achieve success, or just reach a pleasant state of joy and contentment, the Avatar tools can help you. They are also effective for removing grief and stress from your life, restoring health, and achieving peace of mind.
Avatar works through belief management. You can use it's tools to deliberately restructure the beliefs that form the pattern of your life.
Your own beliefs are actually the most powerful forces that influence your existence. They determine what you perceive and how you perceive it; they influence your thoughts, your expectations, and your actions. They shape your personality. They even effect the outcome of your actions and the way that others perceive you and respond to you.
Avatar helps you explore "behind the scenes" of your existence and discover the un-inspected, unconsciously-held beliefs that are causing your life to be as it is.
Avatar is not a religion. There are no members. Graduates of The Avatar Course belong to all religions and there is no effort to convert anybody's beliefs to anything else. The Avatar Course is a straightforward self-development course that comes unencumbered by beliefs, sect memberships, or any quasi-religious rites. For these reasons, it is the high point of the human potential movement. Its graduates are quick to agree, “It is the most powerful, purest self-development program available at any price.”
Most people who became involved with Avatar aren't from the New Age arena. They usually have a practical professional background: doctors, lawyers, engineers, politicians, business people. A manager, for example, uses Avatar to align the beliefs of his employees and to prevent beliefs from entering his office that might sabotage his projects--because it is beliefs that lead to success. The same is true in personal life. Somebody who is convinced that he is unattractive will find proof for his beliefs and stay lonely. But as the same person finds out where this idea came from and lets go of it, then other people will like him more. Avatar can help with this.
Rather than presenting you with another set of beliefs to live by, Avatar awakens you to a natural ability you already have to create and discreate beliefs. With this skill, you can restructure your life according to the blueprint that you determine.
One discovery many people on The Avatar Course make is that what you are believing is less important than the fact that you are believing it. Avatar empowers you to realize that there aren't "good" beliefs and "bad" beliefs. There are only the beliefs that you wish to experience and the beliefs you prefer not to experience. You create an experience of yourself as the source, or creator, of your beliefs. From that place, it is very natural and easy to create the beliefs you prefer.
Personal responsibility is the ability to determine one’s own decisions, choices, and actions. In Avatar, this is called being source. A natural outcome of increasing this ability is that people discover areas in their lives that they haven’t been controlling.
A fundamental characteristic of people who support the creation of an enlightened planetary civilization is a high level of personal responsibility. Avatar’s emphasis on increased personal responsibility contributes directly to creating an Enlightened Planetary Civilization®.
The goal of the three-section course is to guide you in an exploration of your own belief system and to equip you with the tools to modify those things that you wish to change. The Avatar Course opens a window to the inner workings of your own consciousness.
The course teaches world lessons (experiential) rather than word lessons (intellectual). For this reason it requires a trained Avatar Master to guide you into the actual lessons already contained in your own consciousness.
