Avatarism Presents: Self-Transmogrification, Part 1

Comment

Avatarism Presents: Self-Transmogrification, Part 1

trans·mog·ri·fy

verb

1. transform, esp. in a surprising or magical manner.

It is a well known fact of life that success does not necessarily bring happiness. Many of us good people find that even as we make money, build families, and acheive important milestones in life, there is an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with what we have done and who we’ve become. 

After starring in a hit Television show and being featured in all the teen magazines as a young man, many of my peers thought I had it all. The car, the house, the girl, the career. That was a stark contrast to how I felt inside. I was a walking, talking bundle of confusion.  All of that success at such a young age gave me bravado, a kind of confidence, sure, but no wisdom. I found myself in a spiral of consumerism and depression. I really thought that my success could buy my happiness some way somehow and so I threw money at my sadness, and prescription drugs at my mind. None of this seemed to help until i pulled the cord, got off the bus, and began a process of fierce self-examination and self-transmogrification.

With so many people on the earth and so much information available to us, there seems to be widespread confusion as to where we should point our spiritual/philosophical compasses. So we freeze, hold on to old ideals or the ones given to us by so called popular experts who are spewing the same old data that the establishment approves. As I see it, this leads to mass homogenization of ideas, creates a culture of mundane personalities, and fosters a stagnate, bobble-headed, self hating population. 

So I say this to you…….

In the event of stagnation and self hatred 

Pull the cord

If bad dreams and regrets are on the bus with you as you ride through life

pull the cord

When you get tired of your twisting, turning and confusing view of the wicked world

Pull the cord

when you get bored and unhappy with your life, unsatisfied with your character, sick of your mission (or lack thereof), and when you finally wipe the screen clean of all the illusion that something or someone is to blame….

You find that the answer is not anywhere out there

The cord is within

I like to think about archetypes as role models, new skill sets as vehicles, and fantasy characters as transforming influencers because they have worked that way for us as long as we have been here. 

Character traits of masters, skill sets of Jedis, the personality of the winner. Have you tried them on?

Not cosmetic or superfluous, these self defined parameters or character altering mutagens run as deep as you let them. If you let them. So, get it in!

Jesus was trying to say he was god, we are all god, or sons and daughters of god. If you let this idea into your heart/mind and let it take root there in a non egomaniacal way, what changes will occur?

If you take the teachings of Buddha and use them to alter your consciousness for good, what new skills will you learn and who will you become?

If you want to be Batman, or Indiana Jones, or Luke Skywalker, or Rainbow Bright, or even some custom hybrid of Kermit the frog and Jim Morrison…..What will these characters bring to your life once they have been embodied?

Speaking as one who has been transformed from this kind of embodiment I can say that it is both easy and difficult. Easy to start and difficult to describe. Easy to embody and hard to forget once tried. Easy to begin and difficult to master.  If you undertake to up level your character, you may never be the same again. 

I began slowly, collecting people and experiences. I would meet a great person or come up against a great idea and I would let myself get excited. Suspending my disbelief that there was any separation between me and this great new thing helped me to remember that wisdom is alive.

Because of my background in acting It may be easier for me than others, but as an acting teacher I have seen novices take to this skill with lightning speed. Avatarism is the game of embodiment and we have been playing this game forever so don’t worry to much about it, and don’t push it. Let it happen. Want it, and reach for it, but be kind to yourself in the beginning. Remember that it’s important, not serious and all new things can seem odd or fake, till they don’t.

All of us humans copied our parents and our friends when our personalities were forming. We lived through movies, TV shows, comics, and books. We played games and had intense fantasy lives in the forests and on the playgrounds. Remember the feeling of elastic mindedness when you were young? It’s still there, even if it’s been dormant for years. There is no age limit on brain plasticity as science has shown us. Myelin is the stuff in your brain that can build new pathways for your entire lifetime so “no excuses please." 

We all share the same current of excitement when we experience something new that lights us on fire, and rekindles our thirst for life. Avatarism is simple, fun to try and furthermore this game is ageless and without borders. 

As you transform yourself piece by piece, you walk through the fire of self doubt and in the process, burn away old notions of who and what you were. 

The allegory of the phoenix is a story that has survived the ages because of the basic human need to transform. This urge is omnipresent in all of us. We all can be this bird of fire, and raise ourselves up.

From the ashes and the old character rises the new and renewed person. 

The alchemical myth of turning base metal into gold is an ancient story that has enraptured many great minds. Foolish men have wasted countless hours and innumerable years trying to accomplish this feat, and have gone mad trying to do so. The task is never meant to be accomplished for real for it is actually a spiritual code, not a chemical process. 

The base metal is you.

The alchemical secret is the transformation of your base and unexamined self into spiritual gold. Through rigorous and conscious self examination you may create yourself in any way you wish. With the focus of an alchemist you may transform any and all of your base character traits away from the flawed and degenerate programs that you may not have wholly chosen, to a more crafted version of yourself. A more workable and refined character, rarified, and made more valuable to all.

Pull the cord

This human body/spaceship is upgradable. Our minds are programable.  Who doesn’t want to exchange the ingrained, unworkable, and tired aspects of their character for more free, harmonious and pleasurable ones. 

Rather than getting mired in some stringent religious order, losing all originality in a cult, or destroying your sense of self with new age blather, speedy weekend warrior workshops or invasive therapies why not design your character from your own ideas of the perfect person. Why not collect the best that your surroundings have to offer. 

Whatever you choose to transform yourself with, let it be excellent. Let your choices be about your own best and highest vision you have for yourself. Let it take you towards the goal of ultimate victory for yourself first, and then for all life on Earth. 

You are your own highest priority. Without you in working order, we benefit little. 

I have an idea that if we all were acting and embodying our highest visions for ourselves, we would have a chance at fixing the problems of the world.  An army of realized avatars and superheroes bent on saving the world, now theres a idea.  People in fear usually make fearful choices, short sighted choices, choices that are designed to flee from fear…..not fix the system.

Avatarism Presents: Listening Is A Superpower

Comment

Avatarism Presents: Listening Is A Superpower

Dear self,

Here’s some things to remember about listening.

A master practitioner of any craft can seem like a wizard. 

A master creates wonder and awe in the layman with his skill, confidence, flawless execution, and imperceivable effort. 

In my years as frontman for the Flowtemple art parties,  I became very aware of how much listening can be applied in action. The scene was electric, with painters, fire dancers, musicians, clowns and photographers all interacting and participating. In those wonderfully awesome moments where the musicians, music, dancers, and artists were in total communication, the whole room lit up. Newcomers could not believe that everything in the 5 hour set was completely improvised, “It all seemed so perfect and rehearsed.” In that state I was totally involved in the listening and as I became more aware of everyone. I just knew what to sing, words and melodies came. I ended up surprising myself almost every time we played a Flowtemple Party with how much great art we made in that small amount of time.

Listening

allows for 

and welcomes into being

great communication of endless varieties 

Works of immense beauty can be created

seemingly 

effortlessly

And….. It feels powerfully delicious 

You’d think by now 

my listening 

would be a piece of  cake. 

But no

I still have to remind myself 

redundantly

receptively

and in multiples 

of many

Because listening is one of those sometimes forgotten 

superpowers 

When I powerfully listen

I can;

Uphold other people 

Understand complexities

Remember the facts

Marvel in the glory of another’s path

Hear the hidden story

Pick up on wordless, emotional communications

Become aware of subtleties 

Be a less judgmental asshole

Learn self control

Deliver assistance, guidance, and leadership.

Know what the f*&k to say,

and when to say it, yo!

Be funnier and more compassionate

Appear to have psychic powers

Make great music

Dance like a boss!

Sing like a shamanic rock god

Really understand my friends

Be a responsive lover,

parent,, 

pet owner, 

gardener

I know you want it

We all want it 

So give it already

Listen

Excelsior, ever higher,

iRev. Alexander Niver Polinsky

Avatarism Is The Game Of Finding Yourself

Comment

Avatarism Is The Game Of Finding Yourself

Avatarism is the game of finding yourself.

Who do you want to be, and how can you powerfully create yourself?

There are many characters inside each one of us. Look and see. Dad and mom, friends, movies, books, professors, urges, wins and misfortunes. We are a patchwork quilt of experiences, but many of them, we did not wholly choose. Ask your friends where their views and beliefs came from and you’ll find that most people have consciously collected some ideologies from outside sources and have had others thrust upon them by parents, churches, or groups.

It’s a game - find the best stuff and assimilate it into your character. You are allowed to do this! It’s the best gift we have been given! Being changeable and having the ability to self-program is, hands down, the most effective way to have a happy life. 

What would happen if YOU decided to reprogram yourself?

Could you become smarter, more compassionate, or more successful?

If you could, would you create yourself to be a better leader, lover, manager, or friend?

Can you understand that you and your current state of mind is the only thing stopping you from being the highest vision you have for yourself?

I can’t convince you of this by mere words on a page. You must put away your intellect which says that people cannot change.

Intellects vary wildly, but emotional experience is common. The emotions you feel as you are doing something new, scary, or unfamiliar are wonder, interest, involvement. New neurological pathways are formed as a result of an intense or novel experience, and more lasting memories are created. Your brain is awake and you record the whole experience in deep memory, because your brain has been activated by the excitement, the challenge, and the novelty.

In this “seen it all, done it twice” world, we need a higher level of novelty and a more personal form of motivation to really light us up and get us into a new frame of thinking. The brain can become sluggish if given too much of the same kind of stimulus. In order to impress the nervous system and create new pathways in the brain, we have to engineer awe, fabricate wonder, and mock up interest. We can activate our deep remembering and capacity for brain change by performing transformational Avatarism exercises -

Embodying archetypes and characters

Dramatic ritual 

Tests of courage

Avatar Character Sheets

Avatar experience games

Avatar aphorisms 

Naming ceremony 

We are on the path of creating new and more powerful rituals for ourselves. The part of the brain that creates memories needs stimuli. You cannot sit in your chair, watch TV, eat microwaved foods, and expect to feel as though you’ve lived a full life.

Only through knowing yourself, re-imagining yourself, and honing your own flow, can you see real and lasting changes in your actions and reactions.

 

The vision map/vision board/ or list of future goals is a sure fire way to overload yourself. Most goal and “to-do” lists are flimsy contracts envisioned with a needy spirit. I have attended many workshops and self help seminars where they get you to promise to do and achieve all these things, and as soon as the workshop ends, you get home and the slipping starts. 

If you create an Avatar Character Sheet and really map out your highest vision for yourself in a fearless and fantastic way, you may begin to live through that vision. You will see with new eyes. Your perception of what is possible will be widened and upleveled. If you tell your closest friends and family members about your new character, you automatically begin to hold yourself accountable and encourage them to uphold your character when you forget who you want to be. You may now achieve the goals and dreams on your epic to-do lists from a standpoint of power.

To fully use the power of attraction, you must first magnetize yourself!

Be livin’ it,

iRev. Alexander Niver Polinsky

Avatarism Presents: Kriya Yoga

Comment

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"

Comment

"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,

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, “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,

Avatarism presents: “Black Magic Troll”

Comment

Avatarism presents: “Black Magic Troll”

Trolls abound in the world of the inter webs. A troll is a person, who sits at their little screen, and makes comments that disturb, bother, inflict, cause harm, and generally vent the ugly mood of the writer to the world. I got one such comment today on my youtube channel. I was so taken aback by the anonymous trolling, that I looked into this person’s comment history and found that he was spreading hate speech all over the site. Attacking people who go to the Rainbow Gathering festival. His comments ranged from rude, to outright violent even so far as wishing death on the people of this group.

The Rainbow is a peaceful nomadic event that occupies a forrest on July 4th and prays for world peace. I have been to this event and call it one of my home away from homes. I was deeply angered by this person’s attacks and decided to report him to youtube as a source of hate speech. I could have left it at that, but I went on to condemn him personally, and use my creative powers of drama to try to destroy part of his joy as well. I saw on his site that, as he was handing out hate, he was also very into The Doors and the Grateful Dead. A music lover. I have invoked the power of Jim Morrison many times in my personal magic and I count Jim as one of my guides.

I told this Troll in a private message that I was related to Jim Morrison, and Jim would have hated him and all he stood for. I asked this Troll to remember how much Jim would have hated him every time he hears the Doors music. I crossed the line. The power of music is sacred to me and I am ashamed to admit that I tried to use this power against him. I felt a surge of hate and vengeance. Then I felt like an asshole.

I tried to sleep, but my head and back became very hot and I felt like I was sleeping by an oven. I kept having hot flashes like this until I came to the conclusion that I had made a grave mistake. Using my powers for black magic is never ok. I felt justified in defending my Rainbow family that has given me so much, but nothing is worth the pain and suffering of another being. I went to my computer hours later and messaged the Troll again. This time I told him I was a liar, I was not related to Jim. I asked his forgiveness and I pleaded with him to give up the campaign of hate. I asked him to inquire of his ancestors for guidance, and I asked him to find his way back home to happiness, health, and healing. 

Black magic is any word, deed, action, or intonation that creates fear, pain, or dread. Black magic works, it works well. But if you are a worker of will, and practice black magic, that same magic will be visited upon your head tenfold. The classic picture of a witch as a haggard, ugly, hag is an accurate picture of what happens when you make your life around black magic. 

Since I am guilty of black magic, I will ask that you learn a lesson from me, do not practice your will in dark circles. As with any good circle, it’ll come right around and bite you in the ass. 

Your word is your wand. Wield your power with love, respect, and forethought. Or suffer at your own hand.

Avatarism presents, “Awesomosis”

Comment

Avatarism presents, “Awesomosis”

Avatarism presents,

“AWESOMOSIS” def. The process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of awesome ideas, awesome knowledge, etc.

A process by which molecules of awesome tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated awesome into a more concentrated awesome, thus equalizing the concentrations of awesome on each side of the membrane.

You don’t have to try hard. The things you want may be easier than you think. The psychic resistance you are creating in the form of procrastination, fear, and doubt may be the only obstacle you face in reality.

What if you only needed to be in the presence of awesome to become more awesome. What if the first step to stardom is to meet a star and decide that he is a regular person just like you, or a billion dollar CEO came from your neighborhood, it all becomes easier when your psychic barriers are pulled down.

You have a super power to magnetize any idea, person, or group.

Say out loud that you can win, say out loud that you are the chosen one, say out loud that you are never truly alone, and you have cast the first spell towards your victory.

Meta-programming is real magic, you can hack your own mind, and reprogram your own drives for good. 

You must be diligent in your programming, old and inferior programs are deeply imbedded in your system. You might have to take a vacation to a more understanding and nurturing environment and seek out like minded Avatars or people.

Find the ones that you admire for their great work and attitude and use “awesomosis” to become a bit more like them. I authorize you to steal the light from the sparkly ones. They have enough, and the real sparkly ones want to share.

(Awesomosis was coined by Adey Bell Garner while dining on bison steak and a glass of Fester Chardonnay with the iRev. in Hollywoodland Ca.)       www.Adeyeightmusic.com

AVATARISM PRESENTS….. “Your Sparkle Faucet’s At A Dribble Baby”

 

When I was a kid actor on Charles in Charge I came into contact with upwards of 600 people per week. That was how many people came to see the weekly taping. After five years and a hundred or so shows I did notice a lot about the people in the audience. There were ones I remembered and ones I forgot. 

There were ones who looked like they were half asleep but still moving around, there were zombies, followers, nervous ones, the bitter, the sickly, the sweet, the old souls, the ecstatic, fanatic, star struck, and lost. So many different archetypes, and they all filed into our studio and sat there for about five hours each Thursday. 

Once in a while I would meet someone who appeared to be a complete stranger and they’d say “Hey Alex!” I would look kinda stumped and they would get a bit sore and say “Don’t you know who I am?” “Shit,"I’d say in my most honest 11 year old way "I meet so many people!” Which wouldn’t do any good for that person’s ego because it’s just confirming what they secretly know is true…..Their sparkle faucet is at a dribble. 

That means that there was nothing at the time of our meeting that sparked my interest, made them stand out, or gave me cause to think of them as significant. As I write this I feel a bit guilty because I guess I’d like to be the kind of human who finds things in people that I can enjoy, admire, and remember. But alas, this is not so. There are the mundanes, the hopeless, the Abercrombie/Old Navy/ Gap wearing masses who think they can buy originality from a chain store, or repeat lines from the TV or People Magazine, and be a real person. 

If you watch Entertainment Tonight, or Extra, or E! TV, you are losing your mind. Minute by minute, you are giving your brain cells to Proctor and Gamble, Lever Bros, and Nabisco. You are becoming one with the products and celebrities that you worship. The people who actually create the culture you consume are more real than you, and thats just what they want. Stare into my eyes and suck, suck, suck the nipple of mass media. You will soon be as forgettable as a dust bunny in a dust storm. Laughable, and sad, but soooo true. 

Avatarism may be just another word to you, but I caution you to listen to the wisdom behind the ism.

CONSCIOUSLY CREATE YOUR CHARACTER ON THE REAL WORLD PLATFORM. This means, up level yourself from the state of mundane and homogenous, to a creature that gains skill sets chosen by you, and don’t stop practicing till you have mastery of those skills. 

UPHOLD OTHER AVATARS AND THEY WILL UPHOLD YOU. You are not, have never been, and can not exist alone. What we make fun of, hate, and try to belittle, we cannot have. So if you are annoyed by someone making a push to learn, transform, or up level, You will be left out of the game baby. Provide support, love, and acceptance to your fellow mundanes in flux, and you build a support system for present and future awesome. 

TELL THEM WHO YOU ARE AND THEY WILL REMIND YOU WHEN YOU BECOME LOST OR DISPASSIONATE. There is no use giving pity, it serves no purpose other than to soothe a wound. Pity does not heal. Giving a friend a little “poor baby” is a great salve and is a good deed. But in the next moment, a more worthwhile communication is to remind that person who they really are, away from the upset and the hurt. The way to do that is to actually inquire after who that person is creating themselves as. Who do they want to be in their highest version of themselves, what is their Avatar of Power.

Living god

God of love

Circus clown

Superman

Sex kitten

Tiger mama

Prince of air

Medicine shaman, healer, or hero. 

If people don’t remember you, it’s your fault. 

I say this unto you, turn up the faucet, be love, be sparkling, look deep into people’s eyes, notice them and listen for the cue to help them achieve their highest vision for themselves. If you judge them not worthy, scary, evil, or vampires, go find someone else to impact, and do it. Nothing happens in this world without all of us. We are one. The rules apply to all. Use your time wisely and for good, use humor love and your inherent appeal, be it sexy, intellectual, quixotic, or any gift the universe gave you.

Just use it. 

Turn up the sparkle faucet and let the world bathe in your glory.

In loving memory,

iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism presents: Show up as your character and everyone will play along.

Who are you being right now, tomorrow, yesterday? How will that Avatar effect your ability to get what you want on the real world platform. This life is a game! Are you a NPC (Non player character) controlled by the matrix, or are you a PC (player character) in search of philosophic gold and treasures of the mind.

No one expects to meet a superhero. Most people are sarcastic, jealous, needy, and sad. They just mask it with loads of rich toxic food, drugs, and inferior entertainment. They literally kill their energetic field with crap of every kind all the while thinking that they are actually living. All that gets pulled into sharp and uncomfortable focus when said mundane meets a person that is embodying an Avatar of some magnetism and power.  What if YOU were that person of great magnetism and undeniable sparkle also known as SUPERHERO that someone got to meet. They weren’t expecting it, they don’t meet people like you often, you become one of their FAVORITE PEOPLE! This is no trick, its actual, factual, and useful. I’d venture to say it’s the most useful dramatic ritual you can use day to day, day or night, 24/7, 365. 

There is a myth that the highest accomplishment of your character in action is to “JUST BE YOURSELF.” But when you think about it, what are you, but a collection of ideas and sound bites copied from your parents, friends, tv shows, movies, books, and games, your victories, and misfortunes. This “JUST BE YOURSELF,” advice is usually given to poor slobs who are trying to meet or score with someone that are attracted to. I am not saying lie, I’m saying you are perfect, whole, and ready for more. I am authorizing you to not spend another day locked in a sad sack, mundane, self deprecating state of non awesome. 

Lets explore how a little Avatarism can help get you why you want. Mock up the Avatar of the TALENT AGENT. You are sure of yourself, you dress well, you are in possession of a stable of great and talented artists who you can speak about with assuredness and passion. You would walk into a room….scratch that, you take the room with a look, a well placed pause, and then tell them that you have the answer to their prayers, and they believe you. 

Fake it till you make it should be written at the top of every door in your house till you GET IT IN! Every famous, infamous, genius, successful, and otherwise awesome person in the world has done this. They walked onto the bridge when they were scared of falling, jumped out the plane when they thought they would sh*t their pants, and came out on stage in front of the crowd when they thought that maybe they would cry, or run, or freeze. 

I am the iRev. Alexander PolinSKY, I am Captain Sky of the Rogue Mechanica, I am Jim Henson, Jim Morrison, Kermit the Frog, Crowley, Parsons, Hubbard, and Dali. I am that which I was not before. I am that which I was afraid to embody. I am he who dwells in the realm of possibility, transformation, and enthusiasm. 

I am that. You are too.

You are Avatar.

Love always,

Alexander PolinSKY

Avatarism Presents: Mission Re-Up And Spot Check

Avatarism Presents: Mission Re-Up And Spot Check

THE MISSION IS TO BE EXCELLENT, AND SAVE THE WORLD!

THE MISSION IS SELF MASTERY, AND THE ASCENT FROM THE THE PRE-PROGRAM OF THE MUNDANE TO THE AVATARISTIC META-PROGRAM OF DYNAMIC, MAGNETIC, AND EXTATIC TO BE ALIVE.

THE MISSION RESULT IS;

A WORLD WITH SAFETY FOR US AND OUR CHILDREN. 

CLEAN WATER, AIR, AND LAND.

MAGNIFICENT,  HEALTHY, HUMANS INTERACTING ON THE REALWORLD PLATFORM WITH LOVE, COMPASSION, AND FIERCE INDIVIDUALITY.

THE REALIZATION OF THE TRUE INNER MISSION, TO FIND AND MASTER YOURSELF.

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

The usefulness of the mission is that we get to aspire to greatness on our own terms. 

We are able to create our own path, to our own sort of glory, defined by the the individual.

We can pray on our feet to CPU (the creative power of the universe).

CPU does not need us to kneel in sublimation, or sacrifice ourselves, we are one!!!!

“Holy” may be described as spiritually important.

Play is holy. Embodying archetypes is holy. Mocking up a skill set and mastering the steps to those skills is holy. Upholding avatars is holy. Creating your highest vision for yourself is holy.

Failure is holy, only if you awaken to the lesson of failure, and it’s possibilities for up leveling.

The continuing mission is to improve ourselves, out of the recognized norms of society. To self create our Avatar of immense magnetism and excellent character. To develop the sort of personality that can stride across the bridge as spirit, a truly powerful and enlivened being, a being of light. 

To truly occupy ourselves and the land on which we live with a spirit that inspires trust, love, and excitement.

We are reprogramming the world with our magic. 

“SPEAK YOUR TRUTH, YOUR WORDS ARE MAGIC, AND WITH LOVE, YOUR WORD IS YOUR WAND” -IREV. 2011

To all who wish for a better life. 

to all who suffer in silence and loneliness.

to all who feel like there is more than this.

To all who have an idea that deep inside, there is something great within us.

We are the magic makers, the dreamers of dreams, the fire spinners and walkers, the organizers and creators of the new aeon. We have will, we have imagination, and we have a brain that loves reconfiguration.

WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.

All together now……

I AM AVATAR!

Avatarism presents, Living gods, superheroes, and dramatic ritual for up-leveling.

There is a way to up-level your character in the real world platform. You can change your self image from mundane, to living godhood if you wish. You don’t even have to leave your living room. The way to impress your nervous system and change your brain for good is so simple, a kid can do it. In fact, I did it as a kid, and it helped me become a superhero for millions of kids when I voiced characters on Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, Batman, Transformers, Ben Ten, Starship Troopers, and more. I am living proof that Avatarism works. 

Before I discovered my power to up-level my character and began to implement my ideas about programming myself, I was a mess. Diagnosed as OCD, borderline turrets’s syndrome, chronically depressed, had repetitive ticks of the hand and face, horrible reoccurring dreams, suicidal thoughts, and taking anti depressants.

Out of desperation and deep curiosity, I began researching meditation, mantra, world religions, brainwashing, hypnosis, bio feedback, meta-programming, brain changing drugs, dramatic ritual, the Occult, brain science, and NLP. I found that all the most effective techniques were using dramatic rituals or games to imprint the person with a new set of beliefs about himself. I was astonished that more people weren’t using these techniques to meta-program themselves, but it wasn’t till my training as an actor intersected with all this knowledge, that I truly found my recipe for up-leveling.

I was a child actor since the age of 4. I starred in films and TV shows, most note-ably  the comedy “Charles in Charge,” (circa 1989) My father taught me the basics of the craft and introduced me to sense memory, building characters, and his training gave me the ability to create “reality,” on stage. I felt different after each part I mastered. I gained the skills and confidence of each character as if I was that character. This was my first lesson in the life changing power of drama. 

Drama is older than language,

we are creatures of drama,

and our world is shaped by it continuously. 

I have coached people by using my own brand of Avataristic dramatic ritual for the last 11 years. I have seen Avatarism work. We can treat people as living gods and see them altered in amazing ways. These formally mundane people gain insight into their old and degenerate programming and rewire themselves. Not only do they gain powers, but they use their power for good, to help others up-level. We can uphold each other to the highest version of ourselves that we can imagine. We can allow our fellow humans to be the superheroes they want to be. Stand back, and enjoy the show. 

“What you can creatively think of, you can powerfully become.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Meditate on your power character, see yourself as your avatar, mock up a spirit army, and lead them into battle against a formidable foe. Close your eyes and become the warrior god, the priest, shaman, or leader of mankind, and when you open your eyes, you will have had the experience in another dimension, that of mind, but in terms of meta-programming yourself, there is no difference. Your confidence and magnetism is increased, you may cry with joy, or stand more firm in your place. 

Try saying this, or writing your own Avatar Aphorism…..

“I am a living god/superhero/star of my own movie, conscious of my power, able to change myself, heal my physical and emotional wounds, and transmute pain. My will is the way. My love and upholding of others, is my gift. My great work is to consciously create my character in the real world. My mission is to start, move forward, and never stop”

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

We can recreate ourselves as we wish. We can become ethical when we have been evil. We can control our inner voice of fear with a stronger outer voice of determination. I am filled with excitement and hope that Avatarism may be the game that saves lives, creates living gods, and raises our confidence to the level of superheroes. We have no need for violence! We can change the world through conscious character building, skill collecting, up-leveling on the real world platform, and dramatic ritual. 

“We are perfect, whole, and ready for more.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

We have so much to do, time is ticking away, the seconds become minutes and hours. There is little we can do to change others, but we can change ourselves, that is a noble game, a great game! I empower you to seek and employ the ideas of Avatarism as I have presented them in this blog. Create your Avatar, elect your own super gurus from the past, fiction, fantasy, and beyond. Collect skills instead of tricks. Forego manipulation of others in favor of a developed, personal magnetism, based on excellence and mastery.

I will be teaching these concepts to anyone who want’s to learn.

The techniques OF AVATARISM are simple and life changing. Please join me in the game.

Be your character.

Be a player.

Play for what you want.

Be your Avatar.

All together now….say YES!

Avatarism Presents: Being Imperfect In Relationships

Avatarism Presents: Being Imperfect In Relationships

I realize I am human. Part of the organic makeup of this universe. I am highly specialized for thought, action, and reaction. I am not “THE god,” just one of the many living manifestations of the godhead in action on this platform. I am capable of intense goodness and great evil. I must be in accord with my prime directive if I want to keep my head and do good in the world. 

I aim to be excellent in my actions and reactions, I measure, I stop, look, and listen to the moment I am about to create and use my super awesomeness instead of my reactionary blowhard. This is how I keep myself free of actions that need apology. And, I am not perfect.

If you are in a relationship and you love with a fierce and dedicated heart as I do, you may know what problems can come up. If there is misunderstanding, imbalance, or infidelity, then mistrust can lead to a special kind of emotional stress. The danger feeling, the “not friend,” feeling, dire and painful feelings come up. Sit with them for a moment and see what you are creating, what is real, and what is false. One of the hardest things about loving, is letting go of judgement. In this brave new world of many choices, we are taught by the media that the newest thing, the latest fad, or the new person might be better than what we have now. But every new technology, fad, or person brings a whole new universe of needs, learning curves, and curve balls. 

I understand that my relationship is so important to me that I feel sometimes I could kill whomever gets in the way. No one is gonna take her from me! This is where my ethics come in and save me from taking revenge on the other man. I have the cognitive ability to assess the weakness in the offending body and destroy him with a counter strike of such tactical perfection that he wouldn’t know what hit him. The destruction of his business, his family life, his character, and his inevitable deportation from the country. WHOA! I am a powerfully dark wizard if I set my mind to it. 

BREATHE!

If my lover wants to leave me, cheat, or be with someone else, I have to understand that is her choice, her adventure. I have to confront that it might be the end of our relationship, or the lesson that brings us closer.  As Dan Levitt used to say, I can’t have the person who loves me tell me no. We must allow our lovers and friends their path to their own bliss and up-leveling. I will not give into revenge or retribution unless my life is threatened. I will take myself out for ice cream instead. I will up-level my skill set to increase my own magnetism instead of worrying about what may happen. I refuse to live in uncertainty and pain. 

Be kind to yourself and make friends with your pain. Smooth the frayed edges with actions of kindness, fierce introspection, and a spirit good natured inflexibility when it comes to your happiness.

I am a soldier for the cause of my personal truth. I am the Knight of air, on a flying horse, high above the mundane problems of men. I am a living god, conscious of my power, able to re-program myself, and change my brain. I am. I breathe. I love. I let go.

Do not doubt your power to re-program the parts of your bio-computer that malfunction or do not serve your highest vision of yourself. Take care in the fermentation of your character, build it well, and in the final judgement, we will feel satisfied and ready for the next adventure.

Love,

iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism Presents: Being A Living God And Supporting Yourself

I am creating myself as a living god/superhero/star of my movie every day. That means the confidence that I mock up, is greater than I feel somedays, I do it anyway. The actions I endeavor to take are beyond the mundane and normal self I may have been yesterday, I take those actions anyway. The words I speak and the ideas I communicate are the best and most life affirming/situation changing, that I can muster even though they may be scary or confronting. 

I may feel like shit now, but I know that this is my game. Avatarism can be a religion/path/process of self cultured meta-programming towards the goal of action/satisfaction. I incite a victorious cycle, even when my shadow self says “give up,” “not worthy,” or “hide.” Meta-programming is a skill that can be learned. Robert Anton Wilson wrote that self programming will become more and more important in this century as access to information increases. If we can know ourselves well, we can track our degenerate programming in real time, and combat systemic black magic with positive and creative memes. It can be done. 

Temple Grandin, the famous autistic designer and lecturer was unable to touch others and hugging gave her intense emotional pain. She used her creativity to develop a way to experience the calming feeling of a hug without the human contact that disturbed her. She built a hugging machine out of wood to “hug,” her. Her creative and physical solution to an emotional problem was the catalyst that brought her more into the world and allowed her to bring her genius and wisdom to the cattle industry in which she later revolutionized, and the lecture circuit which she now excels in. Like Temple Grandin, how can we design a system to hug/comfort/or support us in our up-leveling, and quest for our highest vision for ourselves.

“I inspire myself first and then set my sights on the rest of my tribe and world.”
