Default Using the Navi Community as an Creative Inner Conversation!

I've noticed lately that when I am having problems or difficulties, or even just wanting some helpful advice, that I often have an inner conversation with what I call my inner community which is completely Avatar based.

Meaning .. that I 'see' myself as part of the Navi community on Pandora, and then when I'm needing someone to talk to about stuff, I visualize and literally discuss the issue with Neytiri, Moat, Grace, Trudy (mostly the woman first), and sometimes include the males as well, like if I need a whole council meeting!

I'm finding that it really is effective and that I don't create the answers or just use 'lines' from the movie, that it actually feels quite natural, and their answers spontaneous and realistic as though something someone in IRL might say, and often even different, or wiser, or completely something I hadn't even thought of as a possible response.

Just wondering if others have had similar experiences, particularly in regards to when seeking advice? (excluding *cough* the whole lot of other interactions that most have discussed regarding connection to Neytiri or Jake )
It was impossible not to have, It's impossible not to be, It's impossible not to still ...!

What this world really needs is more artists and environmentalists!

"Its only 'here' that we lose perspective, out at the Cosmic Consciousness Level things get a lot clearer. For example, there is an actual star pattern that is traced in the shape of a Willow Tree, across the breadth of the Milky Way! And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"

I don't have internal conversations, or perhaps it's more that I don't have them any more. That is not to say that I do not compare myself and my current state to the lessons learned. I think of it kind of like and internal mirror. I can look at myself in the light that was given to me from Avatar. It's hard to describe, but it's more of an all at once gestaltian comparison. Sometimes it starts and ends with "What the hell am I doing."

I do this with a few characters from my life aswell....

I have conversations with them, in which my mind does not choose their answers- It simply uses what I've learned from them to formulate answers.

The people I tend to have conversations with are Leonardo Da Vinci, Eltu and ZenitYerkes [Yes, from Forums], the Ashbringer and Captain Jack Sparrow.

Heh, I've a weird collection.

I can't say I do that, but it sounds like a different way of thinking - do they have different opinions?
