Your avatar, otherwise known as your physical body, is just as holographic as the rest of the world in which you’ve been living.
It’s a perfectly-orchestrated machine that functions with supreme precision, to provide you with sensory experiences and challenges along your journey in this Earthly game.
What does being holographic mean for you? It means that your soul chose an avatar to represent you in your incarnation on Earth. And that avatar is made of light. It’s not as solid as we were taught to believe.
It means that if you want to change it, you can. You can redesign your avatar to look as you want it to look, within the scope of your current belief systems.
I’m talking about the whole you:
- How old you look
- The shape of your body
- Your overall health
- Your confidence level
- Your outlook on the world
Does this sound like a tall order to you? Impossible, maybe? That’s what society’s programming wants you to believe. Keeping people fat and fearful makes them easy to control. And on a planet where the gameplan has included controlling the masses through making them feel powerless, that’s been the case all this time.
So how do we redesign an avatar?
Let’s talk about body image.
Think you’re overweight? Most of us do.
Ask yourself this:
By whose standards are you measuring yourself?
There is no right or wrong answer here. What’s important is that you ask yourself the question and you answer it truthfully. No need to share your answer with me, or with anyone else. In fact, in avatar redesign, it’s important that you don’t share your answer. We’ll talk about why a little bit later.
Here are some prevalent 3D standards by which society defines the ideal body:
- You should look like a movie star.
- You should weigh the same as you did in your teens.
- You should be a size ___ for your height and weight.
- Your body should look young, with no signs of age.
These are all criteria that society has determined for us. With programming like that, no wonder we suffer from guilt, intimidation and shame for not living up to these ridiculous standards.
Get used to this saying, for I will say it often:
“They are all lies.”
Here is the truth: There is a perfect YOU. It’s a unique, authentic YOU that need not be compared with others, with a perfect body composition for YOU, a healthy balance of peace and sense of well-being. Those are the only standards you need to consider.
Your soul chose your particular avatar precisely to maximize the opportunity for growth: Body composition affects our self-worth, lovability, and our recognition of personal power, among a myriad of other things.
Quick story: I did a series of deep hypnotic sessions called “In Between Life Regression” to visit my soul in its natural state. I observed the planning session for this lifetime, to better understand what my major life lessons would be and who the major players were. During my planning session, I was given 3 avatars to choose from. These were blueprint avatars; showing them in their ideal template state, without any distortions from societal programming. The bodies were vibrant and healthy and unique. I was able to view snippets of what my life would look like, navigating in each avatar. I made my choice based on growth opportunity offered with that avatar, according to my plan. And after 53 years in this avatar, I completely understand why. It’s perfectly-designed, to support my goals as I move about in this game. Just an aside: I have met both of the other avatars since incarnating. As soon as I saw them, it was immediate recognition, and, as you would guess, we hit it off like old friends.
Many people have been challenged by body weight issues based on Western Society’s standards of what the perfect body should look like.
Yet anyone who’s spent some time with ridiculously skinny models can learn quickly that skinny doesn’t necessarily equate to healthy, or happy, for that matter.
What we’re aiming for here is for you to look in the mirror and LOVE what you see, based on your own standards. This happens after you recognize the lies that have been stuffed down your throat for all this time.
After an ugly divorce that had me drinking a bottle of wine a day for a while, I recognized that it was time to get back on the healthy side of things. I’d gained 18 pounds. I looked in the mirror and I loathed what I saw. And the more I sent myself those loathing messages, I loathed myself even more, and I gained more weight. Things had to change.
Having generally maintained a healthy body weight my whole life, I knew what needed to be done to get myself back in shape. I was aware of what my particular calorie intake should be, and how much exercise I need to get back to the me that I didn’t loathe. As a long time proponent of the Law of Attraction, I understood that the self-talk that we deal out to ourselves plays a huge role in determining who we are. And that includes the physical part. I decided to combine as healthy a lifestyle as I could muster with the recognition of the programming that set unrealistic standards, and to rewire myself for creating the best version of me yet.
After all, I’m just light. The recognition (or at least the suspension of doubt) of a non-physical reality is key to accepting your power as a creator.
So I went into “redesign” mode and included intention along with my diet and exercise regimen.
My goal: “To mindfully return my avatar to its healthiest, most stable, perfectly-functioning ideal state.”
I created a mental image of what the perfect me should look like, when I view myself in the mirror. I felt that feeling of power, of confidence, and felt the excitement of what the world had to offer, now that I looked and felt my best. I named her Kimberly. Which also happens to be my name.
I didn’t aim to look like someone else; I just wanted to be the perfect version of Kimberly. I vowed to embrace authenticity, and since I was able to view that perfect blueprint-template of Kimberly during my planning session, I could use that template as my goal, here in my incarnated state.
Every time I looked in the mirror, I vowed to see that blueprint Kimberly. The perfectly-designed Kimberly, who was happy at the reflection she saw in the mirror. That Kimberly that wasn’t so concerned with other people’s opinions of how she should look, because she knew that the only person she should be comparing herself with is earlier versions of Kimberly.
And things improved dramatically.
The more often I recognized the new Kimberly in the mirror, the more Kimberly appeared to be changing in the eyes of those observing her out there, in the world. The more lies I confronted, and transmuted, the closer and closer my avatar matched the blueprint Kimberly.
And I dropped the extra weight with no effort, with no feeling of sacrifice, not much work, and with no stress. Despite society’s assertion that to get the body you feel great in you must sacrifice, sweat and work until it hurts (all lies), I got there by changing the thoughts that paraded through my head, and allowing my body to lead me to proper nutrition and motivated physical activity.
There was no feeling of sacrifice. I ate what I wanted to eat, yet once my Higher Self took over reviewing the menu, what I ate changed along with it. I didn’t say I was on a diet, because “diet” has a negative correlation with sacrifice and self-discipline. Fat people are controllable. “And it’s tough to lose that weight. It’s work.” (Another lie.)
Similarly, the “exercise” part was easy because once I began listening to my Higher Self’s guidance, I was led to things that were fun to do. So “exercise” morphed into “movement”…and like that—the stigma of sacrifice, pain and sweat was replaced with something I longed to do because it made me feel better about the me I saw in the mirror.*
The veil has lifted, and I invite you to join me on a journey of avatar redesign.
Wait, what? Aren’t you the blueprint template Kimberly you intended to be?
The answer is, I WAS.
And then last year, I had a bad motorcycle crash that rendered me incapable of movement for a while. I broke my pelvis in 3 places, got pinned back together, and had to learn to walk again. I got to experience all sorts of issues that disallowed much movement until I healed. During this enormous period of momentous inner transformation, the weight reapplied itself. That same 18 lbs I had lost the year before, to be exact.
So here I am, restarting the journey back to the template Kimberly. I am way ahead of where I began the first time, because the lies I’d previously transmuted are no longer an issue for me. Different lies arose: about how fast the body can heal after an accident, about victimhood, and about what doctors say you can and can’t do with your own body. New lies for me to confront.
And this time, I’m documenting the process, so that hopefully my story will inspire you to consider the thoughts that parade through your head about what you can and cannot do with your avatar.
So if you care to join me on this journey, please stay tuned. I’m writing the book, and I’m taking you along with me on the ride.

*Note that diet and exercise are also physical actions that we’ve decided to adopt as necessary for the avatar’s well-being while we are incarnated on this plane. When you realize that you are fully creating every single thing in your holographic life, from your avatar to the props that populate your living space, there’s really no need to go through the physical actions at all. From a balanced perspective, any one of us could reach the point where simply sending out the intent to change is all that’s needed. It’s just a tough pill for most of us to swallow with all that programming to which we’ve been subjected. So we’ll include nutrition and movement as part of this plan.
