At the beginning of the year I set an intention that I wanted to learn how to sing and some of that was because I wanted to explore accessing my voice more getting in touch with speaking from my voice and really feeling the energy of my voice and hoping that Wanda will help me get over some of my fear of public speaking but also just released some blocks around really speaking my voice and in the beginning of the year I had somebody that was assisting me on getting me on podcasts. And so she had reached out to somebody for me to be interviewed on her podcast. And so then she interviewed me on her podcast her name is Ariane and she actually is a voice coach. So at the end of the podcast, I told her what my goal was and I hired her to become my voice coach so we would talk every about every week sometimes twice a month. We would do singing lessons and so we built this relationship and then I interviewed her on my podcast for episode number ninety one which was claiming your voice the power of your voice and in the podcast, she said something that stood out to me and she was talking about the Avatar course.
I became curious about it. I had heard her talk about it several times but then she said a couple of things on the interview that stood out to me. At the end of the interview, I asked her about the Avatar course — in which she told me she would talk to me about the Avatar course and we set up a time to talk about it. I knew that I would benefit from this course but had a lot of resistance around going to the course. I mean leaving my family going by myself. I just felt resistant to it. But at the same time, I felt like this calling like I knew that it would help me. And I knew that it would bust through some of my blocks that I felt like I had been experiencing. And you know she told me that the course was July. At this time, it was the end of June and I thought “I can’t make it happen that quickly.” It was too much of a mind shift for me to just be like “Alright I’m going to leave.” But then we talked about a couple of things. She said, “You know your evolvement will help your family will help your son.” And that really resonated with me. So I said to my husband, “I need to go on this trip. It’s these dates.” He said, “Okay.” I booked my trip and I was ready I was ready to go but I was still feeling a little fear and resistance around it.
Three weeks later I get on the plane fly out of Florida and I get there. It was different from any other personal development or self-development course I had ever been to. There were people from all over the world. It was very unfamiliar. There weren’t a lot of people who were my age (I’m 37). So a lot of people were either older and there actually were kids there that were doing this work too. And I had really had no idea what to expect. So you know I signed up I got the books and I started doing the workbook. And then you get assigned to a one-on-one mentor. I didn’t know I would get one-on-one attention like that.
Essentially what we did at this course was dive into our blueprint, what beliefs have we formed what ideas do we have about our identity the world our self and just through asking questions through the question in the workbook and through different exercises just exploring what comes out right. And it was really profound. I mean the number of breakthroughs I had.
A lot of the beliefs we have come from society our parents, teachers, maybe even the sports arena siblings culture religion and they were using the term in this course indoctrination meaning you didn’t deliberately choose to have this belief this belief was kind of imposed on you in some way.
Imagine if you had a car and you never took it in the shop to get fixed. Obviously, that car wouldn’t run well but also if you’re experiencing a bumpy path and you took it into the shop. One of the first things you would probably do is lift up the hood of the car. A lot of time we don’t investigate our beliefs, our thoughts, or the inner workings of our mind we just kind of keep going. We’re not really taught this these skills in school and can be quite uncomfortable.
At times, I felt very uncomfortable. But in the end it was so freeing. Afterward, I could literally feel a release.
The idea is to question your belief system. You can do this around any area that you’re stuck. My mentor my mentor that was there told me a great story about this she said that when she was in her 20s she had this fear of birds and she couldn’t figure out where it came from me you know and it was just like you know she was she had this fear of birds and she said and then one day she went back to her hometown. She lived on her own at the time so she went back and visited her mother she saw that her mother was afraid of birds. At that moment, she realized oh that belief wasn’t hers. It was her mom’s and because she was able to understand that that belief wasn’t hers. She could let it go.
I just wanted to give you a snapshot and share a little bit about some breakthroughs that I had with the intention of hoping that you can get use out of this and if you have any questions you can always reach out to me.
