Stepping Into Your Power – Investigating Your Hidden Beliefs

By Teal Thompson in Beliefs on April 17th, 2007 / 6 Comments

Do you remember being a kid and wanting something more than anything else in the world? You’d lay in bed at night and dream about it. You’d imagine yourself having it and you’d be filled with excitement.

There were so many things I wanted as a little kid. I’d let my imagination go wild and I’d dream really big – no limitations.

I watched the movie Star Wars about five times when I was 6 years old. I dreamed of galaxies far, far away. I wanted to be like Princess Leia and save whole civilizations. I wanted a light saber so I could fight the “good” fight. I also would listen to songs on my plastic record player over and over again as I dreamed of being a famous musician one day. Just before falling asleep, I’d spontaneously write songs and sing them unabashedly to myself in the dark. I was happy, carefree, and not afraid. I was excited by my dreams.

As I grew older, I started to listen more to the adults around me. Since they were bigger, I believed everything they said. They’d say things like “Young lady, you can’t have everything you want in life.” Or “That’s impossible – you’re not going to be able to do that – you need to be more practical.” I started to believe them. And as I did, I felt a light go off inside of me. I was depressed. I felt as if I was stuck in a reality that I didn’t have any desire for. In fact, I stopped wanting altogether. I’d only allow myself to feel the practical, logical things to want. “I need to go to college” – so I did.

“I need to work in any kind of job just to pay the bills” – so I did. But my life had lost its light. There was no spark anymore. At age 21, I found myself on Prozac and heading into a downward spiral of depression and anxiety. Two years later, I did The Avatar® Course. I saw the changes in my friend’s life and I wanted what he had. He was alive and creating all of his dreams – in a very short amount of time.

It was on day three of The Avatar Course when I had a major epiphany. I was doing a walking exercise (see page 14) outside when I realized, “It’s not because there isn’t enough serotonin getting to my brain that I am depressed; it’s because I don’t have enough free attention to FEEL what actually excites me.” I realized that I had taken on so many discouraging beliefs about my dreams, that there was no space for me to feel them. It’s like a computer: If you install too many programs without enough space on the hard drive, the computer will start to run slowly or stop functioning altogether. This was who I’d become – barely functioning and totally out of touch with what I truly “wanted”. I had decided that it was easier to not even want what I wanted for fear that I’d be disappointed about not being able to get it.

That was a defining moment in my life. Where I regained the ability to want what I wanted and to go for it. The reason I still love Avatar to this day (12 years later) is that it gives you the tools to step fully into your power and go for what it is that you most want. To feel it. To be excited by it – like a little kid. And more than that, it empowers you to create it. No longer do you have to put your dreams on a shelf to collect dust. When you learn how to originate a belief and to manifest it in the physical universe, you will light all the way back up.

What dream have you been waiting your whole life to create? What if it were actually possible? The Avatar Course is waiting for you. All you have to do is step in.

How Does Avater® Work?
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.

What Makes Avatar® Different?
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.

    Avatar is one of the courses I’ve been interested in taking . The book, “Before You Think Another Thought” by Bruce Doyle was a book that he was inspired to write after being associated to some degree with Avator or learning the course or something like that.. dang I have the book in the corner here ..wait.. ok he thanks Harry Palmer of Avatar for giving him a deeper understanding of beliefs.

    However I still want to take the course after reading this book. I think Avatar course might give me fill in some missing steps that I had attempted to follow with Jane Roberts. (too bad there are not seth material seminar/courses)
    Thanks for posting this article

    You’ve heard, “When the student is ready ……”


    “Everything happens for a reason”

    Well, I went to investigate Avatar online, three days ago. I got busy with something else so put it aside for the moment, and had forgotten about it until last night and then this morning, when I got a call from someone from Avatar (having given my permission online for someone to do so) then found your article this morning.

    Timing is everything …. maybe it’s time to take the plunge! =)

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
