Avatarism Presents: Altar Yourself

This picture is of a 6 foot hanging altar to the divine spirit of nature. It has over a hundred computer controlled LEDs that illuminate quartz crystal wands that change color, set into a glowing maze of Oregonian mosses, wild grasses and felled wood from California Forests, lichen, and dried reishi mushrooms.

Oasia represents my need to bring natural magick and a sense of wonder to my city. Altars are made by every religion, sect, and government. From mandalas to monuments, the power of altars is omnipresent. The great thing about them is they are open territory for self programming. 


Read a great article from the Teafaerie about making sacred space for yourself here….
https://www.erowid.org/columns/teafaerie/category/musings/
 

I like to make altars wherever I live and sometimes in nature, or places no one would expect. Creating an altar is a ritual that has fantastic potential for impact-full dramatic ritual. Copy another tradition or make a hybrid of a few. whatever makes you feel right, use that. Offering food on a plate to the spirit of your ancestors to awaken in you a particular power or strength may focus you enough to actually begin your adventure down a particular road.

Excelsior,

Avatarism Presents: Kriya Yoga

Avatarism Presents: Kriya Yoga

To create or recreate yourself can be like a journey into the flames. The idea of making yourself more excellent and skilled at living life more or less constantly, can seem like torture, even as you are actively burning up these old habits and old thought programs.  There may be an uncomfortable moment when you realize that these things take work. This is normal and should be expected sometimes. Push through, take small steps, and celebrate victories often. 

Kriya yoga is a rich yogic tradition some have used to find the courage to examine the inner landscape of their hearts and minds. In my yoga teacher training one of the most impactful of the practices was the yogic practice of Kriya.  I have used it to meditate, to watch my mind’s subconscious thought cascade, and to hone my thought flow on the ideas and self commands that serve my highest vision for myself. I used Kriya Yoga to isolate some upsets and impeded flow in my relationship and although it was painful, it helped me make some hard choices that were being ignored.

Kim Knight of Auckland who teaches Kria Yoga gives us an explanation of Kria Yoga.

“Most commonly known through the well-known book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’, Kriya Yoga is a meditative form of yoga which brings deep peace and good health.

About Kriya Yoga: 

Kriya Yoga could best be described as a mixture of meditation, yoga and pranayama (yogic breathing techniques). It is an ancient and powerful system of meditation, which promises enhanced health, peace of mind and a stress-free life. The people of India have practiced it for many centuries under the guidance of trained teachers.

Kriya Yoga approaches the study of the self with a sense of reflection and introspection so that the spiritual traveler may understand the conditions of his / her mind because the ever-changing mind is the biggest barrier to calmness and self-realisation.

For generations, Kriya teachings have been handed down through an unbroken lineage of God-realised masters, which began in 1861 with Mahavatar Babaji when he re-introduced Kriya Yoga to modern times through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya.

The Meaning of Kriya: 
The word Yoga comes from the root yuj. It has 32 meanings in Sanskrit, but the most appropriate here is to unite. The union of the individual self with the cosmic self, the child of God with God. Therefore, the body with the soul is Yoga.

Kriya Yoga is a supreme science of Self-realisation. It is a scientific technique of action with constant God-consciousness, which ultimately leads to realisation - going beyond the body, mind, intellect, thought, and even the world, to soul-consciousness.

To perceive the soul in every breath, in every moment, in every action, in everything and every being is Kriya Yoga. By the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation, one aspires to lead a life of divine consciousness, which ultimately brings love, purity and joy.”

Avatarism can be a link to a more magical, more powerful, more meaningful existence. Avatarism is a game you play with yourself and the world. Find role models, practice skills, and up-level your character by gaining mastery and honing your own flow. Then by virtue of an up-leveled character, you bring beauty and truth to the rest of the world via your improved, enriched, and emboldened avatar.

We make fearless attempts at excellence on a regular basis and become adepts at living our lives well, because of our willingness to fail, and our inability to stop playing a good game. 

Breathe in and say yes.

Look for co-conspirators.

Become a center of wisdom and skill for others. 

Be willing to change yourself and help others to do the same.

Be a transformational person.

Avatarism Presents: Why Create Your Character?

Avatarism Presents: Why Create Your Character?

With the magnitude of choices we are faced with these days, we need a strong sense of self and self confidence to get what we want out of this life. We are being marketed to and told what to buy and who to be at every turn. If you pay too much attention to this rabble you may end up being defined by the things that outsiders throw at you, and not the character traits you would have chosen for yourself. 

Those who can consciously create their own character and develop unique and workable social personality traits are more able to deal with stress, create affluence, and achieve success in the workplace. People with the skills of Avatarism maintain business relationships, create strong bonds with friends, family, and more easily interact with strangers. 

With Avatarism, some courage, and a willingness to play, you can modify the character program you have been running for good. Using the pure positive approach of Avatarism, you can get off the negative, and go forward into the embodiment of the happy and adventurous person you wish to be.

Avatarism is both an ancient, and a modern technique for modifying character and self image.  With Avatarism you can quickly and permanently alter the way you react to stress by increasing your ability to love your life and yourself. People in love with life and themselves are more productive, more fun to work with, and more attractive to everyone. 

Avatarism creates a culture of excellence for the individual and minimizes the negative force of unworkable personality traits by developing a superhuman focus on a new set of self created values and prime directives.

"Avatarism is the missing piece"

You can program your own mind to be your greatest ally.

Avatarism is game that modern people use to change their algorithm.

Its roots are ancient 

Avatarism is a way to create joy. 

It’s something we have all been doing already. 

Avatarism is how we win, when we don’t know we can.

Remember

The first time you asked someone out

You psyched yourself up

And you did it

You became the one with the guts

You embodied the winner 

You climbed to the top of the ancient temple

felt for a moment that you were a princess or  a high priest

Realized the presence of other archetypes inside you

You went to see Amma the hugging saint

it changed you

you felt her love for weeks

felt more able

more inspired

more alive

You upleveled

and here’s the secret….it was always in you.

And this is just the start. 

Avatarism is the foundation for a revival of the sacred arts.

Sacred because of their essential importance to humanity.

embodiment of archetypes

collecting and mastering skills

learning to uphold people as they wish to be

all central to the mission. 

Separate, we fight and squabble, for a foot hold in time. 

Together, can we remake the world, while we are still alive.

Be livin’ it,

Avatarism presents, “Acting is embodiment”

Comment

Avatarism presents, “Acting is embodiment”

Today I am a zombie. This morning I was a living god, A meathead jock, A slacker, And a wannabe goth. I am called upon to embody many archetypes as an actor. I put my own personality on hold and live through the character.

What does embodiment do beyond a break from the usual reality?

It informs your unconscious mind that there are other ways of being. These alternate personal realities are powerfully impact full and afterwards you are never quite the same.

 Scared of losing yourself? Here’s my advice. Don’t lose yourself. You are perfect, whole, and ready for more. Avatarism is based on acting, ritual theatre, and many ancient and modern spiritual technologies. Use avatarism like a spice. Sprinkle it on a little at a time. When you are ready, a medicinal dose of embodiment may suit your character. But till then, start small. A clown nose in rush hour traffic. A foreign accent at the supermarket. Practicing balancing a chair on your chin. (carefully) Or learning a new word in Russian.

Observe, emulate, embody, uplevel. Try on the hero’s cloak, hold aloft the heroine’s sword, mutate into a beast of unimaginable power. See what you learn.

Avatarism is a game where you get to make up the content of your own character, hone your own flow, and as a result become a gift to the world.

Best,

Avatarism presents ” Accepting your adventure”

The epic story is already underway.
You are the hero of the story. 
Whatever may come.
Let it.
Welcome it.
Accept the bad, the good, and the unfortunate events in your life as part of the adventure. 
There may be torture, pain, sickness, and even death.
Do not fear.
“Fear is the mind killer”
Say “I accept the adventure of my life”
Accept it as it is.
Really be in the now of the moment.
For now is the only moment that actually exists.
And as you free yourself of the fear of your adventure you free yourself up to really embody your most confident and exuberant character.

You only get one shot.
To Really rock the construct.
Be livin it!

Avatarism presents, “Avatar Embodiments”

Embodiment 

To invest, to uplevel, to make manifest new programs in the biocomputer. 

To render incarnate spiritual ideas, deities, superheroes, and fantasy characters in the body of the player character. 

Any increment of any skill you acquire fully.

Any aspect of any character enhancement you master.

Any new way you choose to mutate yourself, altar yourself, or make yourself more than you were.

Embodiment is part of the game we are already playing.

It feels good to learn a new trick.

Our brains are craving new stimulus all the time.

This world is a platform for play.

Play for what you want.

Burn Brightly.

Avatarism presents: “inward gaze”

Comment

Avatarism presents: “inward gaze”

One of my closest friends, Dan Gordon Levitt, died a few days before my birthday in 2010. I was about to leave town to act in a film and the last thing I did before I left was go to his funeral.  We were the same age, in a band together, performed and traveled together, and we had many plans for the future, Avatarism and teaching workshops being one of the things that we were most excited about. I didn’t really have time to grieve, or be with my friends, because I had to leave town. 

I arrived in Oregon, at the house of the director, a raw nerve, emotionally spent, and missing my friend. Add to that my girlfriend in LA was having a meltdown and needed my attention and wham! Production starts and I get hit with 12 pages of dialogue to have memorized by morning. Overload. I am a professional so I did my due diligence and memorized my pages in a few hours, contained the girlfriend situation, and tried to relax and sleep. Not much luck. The director’s style of working was highly improvisational so this added to the stress of the coming days. Things were worsened when the art director failed to meet expectations and I was party to a lot of yelling and growling about “sabotage,” and “Mutiny,” it was intense.

It was recommended that I go have a soak in the thermal pools of the Ashland Wellsprings to unwind. Later I had a tarot reading from a friend whom I had allowed to look deep within me. She is a light worker, and healer of the deep and dark places.  She advised me to seek the space within myself, my yin to my outer yang. She recommended that I go talk to the spirit of Nature and go deep.  

The Goddess Temple of Ashland was built on the bank of a hot stream, off the main road to Ashland Oregon. Down a dirt road, past a garden in the shape of the tree of life, A perfect white dome with an inviting fire, beautiful crystals, and a Priestess holding the space for sacred use. This shrine sits on ancient tribal land that for twenty thousand years was a birthing site and neutral ground in times of war. Women could come here from all tribes and have their baby in the warm stream, and be safe from attack and meetings could take place among tribes in conflict.

I visited this ancient sacred site daily for a month, maybe a bit longer actually. I would walk the dirt path, take off my shoes, enter the dome and sit on beautiful carpets,  before an altar of bones, crystals, sage, an eagle’s wing and other ritual objects. From there you can see thru a huge window that looks straight up a slope, drenched in greenery at the foot of which runs the hot river.

I brought my stress of city life and my disconnection from nature, my longing to be with nature. I cried for my friend Dan, my loss of direction, and dissatisfaction with city life. I gave myself over to the experience of being spiritually naked, holding back no emotion. I played a didgeridoo (an ancient Australian wind instrument).

I offered myself to the spirit of nature, so she  would make me a tool for good use. I asked her to show me the inside of myself, illuminate the drives behind the desires, and when I asked this, a wave of emotional energy came over me. My body began to feel an immense and rocking sadness, but I noticed my observing mind was high up in the background watching and feeling very relaxed and happy.

It was like I was being destroyed, my personality pulverized by the embodiment of raw, natural, truth. I felt great relief like an ending had come. The death of my friend, the shattering of personal illusions about mortality,  about the state of this earth and its inhabitants, and about my work in the world.

I wept at the feet of the spirit for 30 days

Many arms held me and many hearts gave me counsel

Many cups of tea warmed me, and many leaves of sage burned for my words to be taken on the wind 

Journey to the holy site every day

Offering music 

speaking to spirit, 

asking of spirit

listening to the subtle answer

accepting the gift

releasing

resting and drinking tea

dramatic ritual

gaze inward and see what you find.

Be livin’ it,

Alexander Polinsky

In a white suit with a red hanky

I am,

I am not the only one who looks through my eyes.

So I play a great game

in order to increase god’s chances

of having a good time. 

And hearing hir say ”Whoa!…Did you see that sh*t?!,”

“That monkey, is really living,”

and in that “Aha!" moment

Avatarism presents: “Never be a stranger to yourself again”

Comment

Avatarism presents: “Never be a stranger to yourself again”

Avatarism is a game of conscious character creation on the real world platform. We play for what we want. We uplevel and surmount life’s obstacles with an adventurous heart and focused action. We love, teach, embody powerful archetypes, and uphold each other. We heal our wounds, practice good stewardship of the earth, and master incredible skills to serve humanity and ourselves.

Won’t someone save me?

After finding out that we are all alone in our skin and no one else is gonna save us. We get to give up looking, and become our own best friend on this epic journey. We get to build our best friend from the ground up using the best philosophical ideas and workable skill sets we can find. Then, when we attain even a little mastery, we erupt with gratitude for realizing that the happiness, confidence, and wisdom we possess was generated by ourselves, no one imposed it upon us, and no one can take it from us.

For people on the path of victory, there will be many twists and turns.

- Alexander Polinsky

People talk about power coming from money, success, or breeding but I ask you this….If you could walk into a room and be the most magnetizing, full of possibility, clear eyed, focused mind, brightest damn creature there, What couldn’t you do? That is it!  You could start a movement, rise to the top of an industry, have the connections you desire, all because your will was strong enough to craft yourself into a superhero, a leader, a victory-maker, A person that other people want to be. 

Power is not my goal. My goal is about impacting individuals. I want to help create a world where people make their own character. Where they feel free to drop their old programming, circular patterns, unworkable modes of thinking, way of speaking, style of dress, way of walking, eating habits ANYTHING AT ALL THAT IS NOT SERVING YOU FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD, and create a new character. You will retain your body of course, but you might see it change. Avatarism is known to create body awareness and body health as a result. The desire to hone our humanity is universal, everyone is whole, perfect and ready for more, every soul can uplevel, and uphold. 

Avatarism is about building your character with passion. 

I realize that some of the people around you,

may hate you

misunderstand you.

or resent you for being the sparkliest thing in the room.

They try to troll you into submission with gossip, sarcasm, and other kinds of black magic.

Understand that the ones who oppose you for your brilliance are like scared little children who most likely cannot generate the same magnetism as you. They never learned to use seduction to get their way. Instead they play the game of force, manipulation, and deceit because it was what they were taught. Finding out that your programming is flawed or even degenerate, wo……that’s a big one Bob! Hats and wigs off to the one who wakes up, and changes everything for their highest good. That is heroic.

Avatarism coaching could be the thing that wakes you up and starts you off in that whole new direction. New ways of thinking and absorbing information become clear thru training. New pathways in the brain form as we grapple with possible identity additions or subtractions. Mylan, the frilly connective tissue in the brain is produced in the human at all stages of development. At no time in your life do you stop being able to grow new brain cells. This is key to understanding how Avatarism works so well.

tumblr_inline_mgnil4zlKp1qb8ney.jpg

I have seen the most interesting changes in people as a result of this work. Attitudes change, life’s work discovered, passion rekindled, and confidence sparked. From the smallest habit like biting your nails or a facial tic to the most troubling like self hatred or violence. Embodying, upleveling, and upholding brings people to center. It makes you the conductor of the symphony that is your life. You feel more and more in touch and in tune with your own unique and powerful vibration. 

You will never be a stranger to yourself again,

if you play this game,

Alexander Polinsky

Comment

Avatarism presents: “Bullies and Tyrants”

If they are mean and hurtful?

Do not give them your heart.

If they hurl insults?

Do not believe their lies.

If madness persists.

Observe the behavior, learn their game, and If they chase you?

Get the hell outta the way.

What is the Tao of the bully and the tyrant?

They exist to show us our weak spots. 

Where we need to grow and develop deep awareness.

To condition root strength, mental agility,  and temper our self confidence.

but not to much now.

To much contact with these people can lead to health problems and trauma issues.

So to defend thy kingdom;

Beware violent domination tactics of any kind. It is brainwashing. Only YOU are allowed to brainwash YOU!  Beware unhealed abuse survivors, they have hidden issues and occluded reasonings. Beware the braggart and the fear monger, for they mean to capture your attention and then enslave you, while draining your life force or chi. 

Beware your sanity around such people.

Language and behavior can and do act like a virus, and we are susceptible to programming by intense situations and individuals. If you feel a sneaky suspicion that you are being manipulated by the intensity of a person, then chances are, it’s actually happening.

breathe.

Create beauty anyway. 

And love your precious self enough to get out of a relationship that perpetuates neurosis, fear, or postpones your ultimate joy any longer. 

We are consciously creating our own character. That means we have a right to control what gets downloaded and how.

We are building our own dream on the real world platform because we can. 

We are honing our own flow. 

You and I are two parts of a whole galaxy of possibilities.

Keep close your magic.

Keep aflame your ways of wonder.

Create moments of joy for your loved ones. 

Uphold each other and Uplevel often

Program yourself.

and remember.

Bullies also exist, to create superheroes!

So rise and shine Superman/woman

(From the Sacred Mysteries House in Colorado)

Loving you,

Avatarism presents: “The purpose of wonder.”

Comment

Avatarism presents: “The purpose of wonder.”

The skills of Avatarism have led me to want to do more exciting things in my life and that has led me to be able to access states of ecstasy and fear. I have found that the more you access these emotions in a controlled environment, the more you have mastery over them, learn to use them. When mastery of the self occurs through testing the limits of who you are and what you are capable of, paradigm shift occurs within the mind and heart off that intrepid Avatar. Here is a story that illustrates this point.

Scuba diving off the coast of California I witnessed the most amazing sight. Sixty foot long Kelp beds extending down from the surface in cathedral like arches and “Rooms.” I was struck by the beauty of this floating holy place. I was seeing natural beauty in a whole new way that was alien to me. There were fish of many sizes swimming in and around the dark green tendrils. In the distance, I saw the deep black of the ocean. I had the feeling that I was a child again and I was so excited by the texture, and the size, and the movement in the warm current, and I was overjoyed and full of wonder. My mouth would have dropped open if I didn’t have a respirator in it.

Just  then I see another diver come swimming towards me. I thought this was weird because we were supposed to stay in buddy groups of two divers at all times. He started gesticulating  towards my head and I got the idea that there might be something lurking behind me, like a huge, hungry something. But it wasn’t a shark, or a whale,or even a sea cucumber. The diver turned out to be the instructor and after he swam up to me, he put his hand on my shoulder and started to bring me up to the surface, a hundred feet up. I had popped an O ring and there was oxygen escaping from my tank and soon I would be out of air.

I had only been diving three times after my lessons in a West Hollywood pool so I didn’t know what the hell was going on. We swam a few feet then paused to decompress and we handed back and forth his respirator as mine had now run out completely his training and expertise saved my life. As I rose from the water and climbed onto the boat I realized that I was still in that state of wonder from thr kelp beds. The life threatening situation actually took a backseat to the totally amazing natural wonder of it all. I was neither scared nor bothered by the whole, “no oxygen thing.”

It seems like  wonder has a kind of anti depressant, or anti anxiety action. Wonder prevented me from freaking out in what could have been a really bad scene. (If you swim to the top suddenly from a depth of a hundred feet, you could risk air bubbles forming in your blood and get the bends, a very dangerous condition)

Children have wonder, watch them find something new. Eyes wide, open mouth or smiling, eyebrows raised in rapt attention. Being a clown in Cirque Du Soleil gave me a potent example of this when the director Michelle Laprise told me that that is what they look for in performers, Wonder. I saw glowing examples while performing as well, on the faces of the audience members.

With adults you have to give them a lot of whizbang and fervor to push em’ into wonder. Kids are easy, “got your thumb!” and they freak! Adults seem to need more and more intense and fantastical stimuli to bring on the wonder. But wait, all is not lost, you can re-learn wonder, by simply imitating wonder until it occurs. This really works. 

Look closer at nature, closer……there!

Open your eyes real wide, open mouth, or smile, eyebrows arching.

Now you’re doing……“The wonder face!”

It may feel weird, but keep it up for a minute and look at stuff, see what gets activated. 

Wonder is a great additive to a normal day. Use it for play, loving, appreciation, surprise, and any other emotion really, it pairs nicely.-iRev Alexander Polinsky

The mind of a child is easily in wonder, and super elastic in its ability to learn, copy, and execute games. The adult mind can reason, draw from a wealth of experiences, and stay calm when intensity arises.

Know both, the child mind and the adult mind. Use both to balance play and discernment together. 

Be wonderful today.

Comment

Avatarism presents, “You change me.”

Change your focus and change everything.

Look at your own hand.

Look at the tree and how it moves.

Look at the faces of the ones you love.

Look at the dishes, and clouds, and dogs, and apples.

Nothing can be taken for granted.

Every thing is here because of some monumental cosmic action.

Everything.

From the smallest stone to the biggest machine, there are bits of the cosmos, big bang energy, and vast history contained within.

Do not think for a second that you are not a miracle.

For you to be reading this now, millions of your humanoid ancestors had to have come before. If even one occurrence had been different down the line of ages, you wouldn’t be reading this blog right now. 

So if you’re thinking that this “ho hum, nothing special universe,” spit you out to hang out and complain that you lost your job, have no mate, and can’t get a break, well, snap out of it. 

Time is life,

and killing time

is like killing yourself.

This is the dawning of the GOLDEN AGE OF HUMANITY!

There is access to information, access to tools, and, believe me, there is access to wealth of every kind imaginable. 

The time is go!

Act different.

Whatever you’re doing now,

is it not working? 

Do something else. 

Something that builds your character.

Avatarism is a game where you begin to assemble your own personality like you are making a scrapbook; you put the best and most awesome pictures and memories into place. 

You choose the best ones.

Do this to your own life.

Choose only the best for yourself.

You are a miracle, and you deserve the best.

You are Avatar.

Avatarism presents, “It’s easy.”

We are creating a game.

We are going to use it to heal human beings and make them more effective at living an awesome life. 

The game is Avatarism.

It’s a game where we act think and react differently than we did before and observe the effects.

We come to know who we really are because we create our character, piece by piece from the best elements available to us now.

We put the old, sad, tired, angry, unmotivated, unlovable, stuck character into deep storage in less time than it takes to blink.

We decide that it is so.

Then turn on a dime, and begin to do things from the perspective of the highest vision we have for ourselves. 

Who says you cant?

That’s a lie.

I say, 

it’s easy

and when you realize it’s easy……

Watch out,

things are gonna get really exciting.

Love, 

Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism presents, “What is Avatarism?” 

“Avatarism lets us all wipe the slate clean and start over as the incredible people that we want to be” -Recent workshop participant.

What is Avatarism?

Created by Alexander Polinsky, Avatarism is an exciting, creative, and spiritual process, where you learn to to transform yourself from what you have been into what you want to become. Based on science, ancient teachings, Jungian psychology, neurolinguistic programming, ritual theatre, and modern technologic culture, Avatarism is an easy, fun, and powerful way to permanently change the quality of your character, heal yourself, and find completely new ways of being.

Avatarism is effective because it helps you learn about and transform the quality of your own character. Avatarism uses impact-oriented games and direct experiential processes to help you to change the most painful or unworkable aspects of your life and craft your own personality based on choice and free will.

Avatarism is a workable technology for creating the “you” that you always knew you wanted to be but did not know how to achieve. 

With Avatarism, you will learn that you are perfect, whole, and ready for more. We help you target that “you” and begin the adventure of building the “future you” on the real world platform.  In Avatarism, we call this phenomena “Up-Leveling,” or the act of taking on new skills and characteristics that improve the quality of life and make us more able and magnetic than we were before.

Avatarism shows you how to transform yourself very rapidly. You will learn how to take on new skills and embody new archetypes while preserving all the wonderful qualities you already possess. The ability to change yourself is ultimate freedom. As you learn the game of Avatarism, states of happiness, peace, and bliss will be available to you at will. 

The only constant in life is change, and through Avatarism we can become an expert at the change game. 

Avatarism works by helping you experience other archetypes and skill sets that you may not have allowed yourself access to because of your past programming or social constraints. These “programs” that your brain is running may not have been wholly chosen by you, but were forced upon you by parents and your environment before you even knew what choice was.

These old and degenerate programs block you from direct access to your highest vision of yourself and, if unchecked, will direct you back again and again to those places and actions that cause you pain. Avatarism puts you in service of yourself, as your own best friend or avdocate. In Avatarism’s experiential games, we alter old patterns and create new and engaging ones to take us into states of infinite confidence, ultimate mastery, and unbridled happiness. So, don’t be hard on yourself for having some problems in life, you can do something about it!

As a  student of Avatarism, you will learn to embody characteristics of power, confidence, magnetism, mastery, grace, eloquence, compassion, nurturing, and even superhero-like qualities, including heroism, strength, valor, and excellence. 

The way to up-level is not to lament about past failures, emotions, and stories, but to tap into the embodiment of the things we DO want and sail true in this new direction.

Avatarism is something we have all already been doing in some way through books, movies, hero worship, collecting skills over a lifetime, or at halloween when we transform into a completely new character and realize the freedom that it brings. The Avatarism teachings will allow you to embody these characteristics and skills constantly, especially when the going gets tough and when old programs threaten to “take over for your own good.”

Avatarism may be the most fun game you will ever play because the result is your true personhood, being fully awakened, and having access to immense pleasure in your lifetime.

The ways in which we can embody our highest vision for ourselves are infinite, but there are a few basic skills in Avatarism that help you form the framework of your practice. 

These are the 7 attributes of Avatarism:

1. Conscious character creation

2. Embodiment 

3. Skill Collecting

4. Mastery

5. Upleveling

6. Upholding

7. Fermenting culture and community 

Being adept at the game of Avatarism is one powerful way to gain freedom, personal magnetism, and make your life more blissful, and full of discovery.

It is impossible to effectively learn Avatarism from this blog or a book; it requires “darshan”. Darshan is the Sanskrit term for “an event in consciousness where a powerful exchange occurs between student and teacher.” Taking the lessons from someone who is adept and skilled in the practice is the only way to properly receive the teaching. 

The Aim of Avatarism is to inspire and assist you on your journey. 

Avatarism is taught in 5 different ways. No matter which one you choose, you will gain the skills that are required to practice Avatarism with confidence forever.

Avatarism presents: “How to become a SUPERHERO in your lifetime”

These are some of the notes that I used to teach the Avatarism section of the “Vivation/Flow/Avatarism Superhero Training.” It was a really special event oranized by Paul Hughes of Vivation Int., with the amazing Teafaerie and Thom of Flowtemple, in 2010.

I hope this gives you some reality on Avatarism and how to manifest it in the game of your life. 

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

“AVATARISM CAN TURN FANTASY INTO ACTION” - Alexander Polinsky

breathe.

Say “yes!” (loud)

You are perfect, whole, and free to up-level. 

Welcome home…….I assert that we are made in the image of the evolving hero. On the brink of greatness, and capable of so much awesome, one can hardly contain the babble of bubbling possibilities present in every moment for ones such as us. We can ferment the culture of awesome in our lives, on the real world platform, for each other, and for the good of the planet. We are unlimited in our capacity for skill collecting, compassion, ambition, and loving.

breathe. 

Stagnation is death,  we were all made to move. You have to move! Wherever we are in the time line of our adventure, we can unlock the door to something stimulating, up-leveling, and ultimately, life changing. Moving the body is essential to health. Yoga, flow arts, dance, coitus, all good for the body. Move and flow everyday to stay in your body. Your body is your spaceship, it needs maintenance my friends.

Breathe.

Be a conscious consumer. Inquire and learn about where your food and goods come from. If you consume junk, you are junk. It’s as simple as that. What you consume, you become. BOOKS, MOVIES, TV, FOODS, DRINKS, MEDICINES, AND EVEN FRIENDS. If these things that you consume are not upholding you and helping you create the highest vision you have for yourself, you need to trade up for something better. 

The game of Avatarism is about finding creative ways to up-level your real world platform character. There are rewards, you get achievement points in the form of respect, love, friendship, great sex, fame, and superpowers. You cannot help but to be more awesome, when you do this work. 

Consciously create your character. 

Costume yourself in the clothes, ethics, essence, and style, of your highest Avatar self. If who you have been is not working, change! It’s not hard, its a game. Play with your ability to learn new things and met new people AS this enhanced character. Add skills to your arsenal, execute coordinated acts of Awesome, up-level your character steadily, and with passion. Re-create yourself as a hero, use your new powers to help the world, and your creative acts of heroism may live forever.

“AVATARISM, the squeaky back door to Enlightenment.”

-Alexander Polinsky

“Control your destiny 42% more, Guaranteed.” -Bob Funky “The Meta-Sapian”

Breathe.

SAVING/HEALING THE HUMAN RACE IS A HUGE TASK!

 Help them by improving yourself. The poor, angst riddled, sarcastic, frazzled, urban masses, wet wired to copy all they see an hear, have little inkling of their ability to change themselves or discern the workable data from the glut available to us from the interwebs, and the media. We have been at the mercy of degenerate samples, and inferior programming all our lives. But doncha’ cry, We can invent a new more excellent self, and use the self as the vessel for acts of incredible awesome. We can embody this thing into realization.

Embrace the chaos, for from chaos comes the building blocks to a brilliantly organized system.-Alexander Polinsky

AVATARISM, A KIND OF “SKILL SOUP” THAT YOU MAKE WITH RARE INGREDIENTS COLLECTED FROM SOURCES THAT YOU FIND THROUGH SEEKING, INSTEAD OF JUST COPYING WHATEVER COMES BY.  MAYBE YOU WEREN’T CONSCIOUS ENOUGH TO REALIZE THE DANGER OF LETTING OTHERS RANDOMLY PROGRAM YOUR BIO COMPUTER, BUT NOW…….YOU ARE AWAKE.

“No longer awkward, and heavy, but light, and ready to move.”-Martha Growham 

breathe.

The true, global, citizen, taking the best parts, from all the great paths, would come to some combination that suited hir. As all of those religions, schools of thought, or styles of living have evolved, mutated, and erred, so do we. We will mirror the evolution of all great works of art and become more beautiful and coordinated as we go. We have the right, and ability, to evolve our spirituality and our character over time, And in doing so, create a unique road to greatness, and excellence. 

“Hone your own flow”-Dan Gordon Levitt

“Ferment your own culture.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Upholding Avatars.

Learn the secret identity of your tribe’s members, the inner super hero. Tell your group what you want to be, listen and be of service with that knowledge. When you forget who you are, or fall on your face, there will be the ones who can tell you who you are becoming, so you may start from there, not get back into the same old thing that brought you here to this particular breaking point. There are non player characters who will warn you and direct you to go back where you have come from. Run from those ones. They are the Gorgons, the terrible and seductive ones who mean to drain your spirit, peck at your uniqueness till it is gone, and keep you the same as you were, to comfort themselves! To truly uphold another, you must be on your true path, and be willing to receive that same blessing/guidance. 

Your word is your wand.

breathe.

Examine all indwelling thought, and outward projected speech with the light of truth. Use your word to direct your action towards positive creativity. What you say about your world and your fellow avatars on the path, reverberates for longer than we know. Watch your communications for sarcasm, for the child inside does not understand sarcasm. Watch your communications for negativity (its literally addictive), Be excellent with your word, have full knowledge of it’s upholding power, and it’s destructive power.

Fake it till you make it.

No human ever sprang fully formed from their mother’s womb, and no avatar was fully embodied spontaniously. These adjustments to character, habitual thought process, and skill set happen in stages. The important thing is to be open to the phenomenon of up-leveling. You can up-level fast or slow, but you have to believe in your own capacity to change and grow. This takes confidence.

The game of Avatarism is being created now. By all of us. We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams. We are the ones we have been waiting for. “There,” is place you have come from…….“Here,” is the door……fling it open, and start your glorious run.

breathe.

It’s going to be really fun.

Not serious.

Just important!

 

Start acting…..diferent.

You are Avatar.

xoxo

Alexander Polinsky
