Channeling the avatar

I'm working on a comic page relating avatar identity with shamanism and tantric practice. In the course of research, I came across some great videos of people manifesting very different personalities than their standard human identity:

Genpo Roshi's Big Mind process allows people to speak from the viewpoints of many different identities, both internal and universal.

Voice Dialogue allows people to speak with different selves within their consciousness.

This video is a fascinating example of trance channeling, with Jane Roberts channeling a being named Seth.

I'm not sure to what extent these are connected to the human experience of unique avatar identities, but they certainly provide food for thought.
