When I was introduced to The Avatar Course and the materials, I was very much isolated, numb, and experiencing a challenge in my life. I became very interested in the idea that what I believed and my thoughts could change or improve my challenging situation.
At that time, local Avatar Masters hosted mini-course days. When I did mini-courses with my Master, I felt a palpable shift and awakening in my consciousness. I felt different. I felt better. The way I felt was valuable. It took me 2 years to go from my first introduction to the full course, but I was very motivated to continue to pursue the opportunity to learn and experience the materials and to feel the process of my own awakening.
The Avatar Course was a lot of money to me, but talking to the supporting Qualified Master awakened the idea of being an explorer instead of my believing that I did not have the money. I started to believe that I could create it and I started to look for where that opportunity might manifest.
The opportunity to awaken, to feel better, and to feel the shifts in consciousness was worth anything I had to do to create it. I always did as much as I could do and showed up at my own pace with the hunger for the experience. I created the course in a way that was supported from behind, but I still feel and believe that I created in a way and in a time that was right for me.
The feeling of awakening and feeling better had value to me. Being able to do it at my own pace and in my own way as a creator of my own experience had value to me. What I am feeling right now is "Unconditional love is a nonjudgmental, serene acceptance of the flow of the universe and an unshakable faith in the good intention of the creator." (Harry Palmer). Being held in that faith and intention is valuable.
What made The Avatar Course valuable to me was the opportunity to feel better, the opportunity to feel and experience a shift in consciousness/awakening, and the opportunity to learn new strategies or skills for handling what wasn't working and to create what I believed what would work better. It was valuable because these were qualities and skills that I was not learning or experiencing elsewhere but wanted to acquire.
