Session 956


"Holding a Dream Walker Aspect"
"On Creating New Focuses of Essence"

Sunday, November 11, 2001 (Private/Phone)
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Paul (Xutrah)
Elias arrives at 3:07 PM. (Arrival time is 30 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

PAUL: Bonjour, mon ami!

ELIAS: Ha ha ha! And how shall we proceed?

PAUL: Well, good question. (Elias chuckles) I feel an affinity towards you today that I haven't necessarily felt in the past. And I was just curious as to what new games you have created for yourself in the intervening linear time framework?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you that a great part of what you are experiencing is in relation to your own movement and your own allowance of openness in relation to interaction with myself.
But I may also express to you that I have been incorporating a playfulness recently within MY energy expression, for the energy expression which pervades your physical dimension presently moves in such seriousness (both chuckle) that I choose to be interjecting a reminder of playful energy as an expression of essence.

PAUL: (Laughing) Indeed, at work I have been monitoring my monitor. (Elias laughs)

Ah! As long as we've brought up the topic of seriousness, I'll just jump right to one of my points here. A current time framework focus of myself: I believe his name is Hezrah Falulk and that he is a couple of leadership levels removed from bin Laden, and I want to confirm that focus of my essence.

ELIAS: Yes.

PAUL: And he is currently considering the act of physical disengagement.

ELIAS: Partially, yes.

PAUL: The empathic connection that I allowed myself by making that connection was quite overwhelming, as I imagine you've heard from more than a couple people lately.

ELIAS: Yes, I am aware.

PAUL: And that, I believe, is part of my new opening to impressions and the connectedness that I actually do engage with everything and everybody around me. It's been quite a journey.

ELIAS: Quite. Enlightening is it not?

PAUL: (Laughing) Fascinating, actually. And the expression of trauma of which you've been speaking for such a period of time, I can definitely connect with that, too.

ELIAS: I am aware. This is not necessarily an expression of an event, but an expression of association that is generated within the individuals in this movement of opening and widening awareness and recognizing the strength of your individual beliefs and the affectingness of them, not in the recognition that they are bad but in the recognition that the automatic responses to them and the associations that are created with them are extremely limiting.

PAUL: Indeed. And the issue of religious belief systems played very heavily into this presentment to myself and allowed me to see, in the form of Hezrah, how affecting religious belief systems, if I respond to them in an automatic manner, can be.

ELIAS: Quite. This is not to say that the religious beliefs are not incorporated by you all, but the recognition of the power that they express in automatic responses...

PAUL: Yes. I understand.

ELIAS: ...in the lack of choice that you offer to yourselves and the generating of absoluteness.

PAUL: Yes, that will tie into my discussion with Michael prior to the engaging of yourself.

ELIAS: I may express to you, individuals are challenging themselves in this time framework with this concept of absoluteness, and this may be quite difficult in some expressions. Absolutes are familiar. The lack of absolutes is very unfamiliar.

PAUL: I'd like some confirmations on a few other things here. My friend Andy, I had the impression that his essence name was Gail. Is that correct? (Pause)

ELIAS: Galin.

PAUL: Galin?

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: My granddaughter, Kayley, her essence name would be Wallace? (Pause)

ELIAS: I am acknowledging! This is a clear translation of your impression. Yes!

PAUL: Thank you. I also have the impression that we shared a physical focus as monks in France in the year 1148.

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: I think we're going to have some fun in the future going to see some chanting, shall we say.

ELIAS: Ah! (Chuckles)

PAUL: These are kind of interesting. The impression that a focus of Patel was my paternal grandfather - is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes.

PAUL: That would explain the physical naming of "Paul."

ELIAS: (Laughing) Your choice!

PAUL: Indeed. And this one's kind of fun: a focus of my essence, named Hazel, was my mother's mother's father's mother. (Pause)

ELIAS: Yes.

PAUL: Passing genes to myself!

ELIAS: (Laughs) Interesting belief. Ha ha!

PAUL: Of course! But that's what we're here for, right? (Elias laughs)

I was looking for other dimensional focuses with the physical naming of Xutrah, but I found a male future focus in the year 2163 in England, physical naming Xutrah, correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: And I note that they're still driving on the "wrong" side of the road.

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! At times.

PAUL: Ah, incorporating much fun! (Both chuckle) Seventy-three was the number that popped into my head as the number of shared physical focuses that we have engaged, correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: We've been busy.

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! I may express to you, my friend, in a manner of speaking, I am always busy! (Chuckles)

PAUL: Presenting much fun to yourself, of course.

ELIAS: Quite! And amusement.

PAUL: Oh, I've been aware of some of those, yes. (Elias chuckles)

Energy dots: lots of fun, I enjoy them very much. I recognize your blue, the orange of Patel, and other colors which I can't objectively bring to mind who they're associated with. But I've also seen some black energy dots. What's that? (Pause)

ELIAS: This is your presentment to yourself of imagery in relation to a collective expression of consciousness.

PAUL: Could you amplify on that some?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, what you image to yourself in this manifestation is not associated with a singular essence but an expression of collective consciousness of essences - not necessarily specific or particular essences, but merely as an expression of a collective.

PAUL: Implying "All That Is," in a fashion?

ELIAS: Not quite, but movement into that direction, in a manner of speaking, in blurring the lines of separation and allowing yourself to create an expression which is not as defined as a particular essence, so to speak, in association with a particular personality energy, but rather merely as a collective expression of energy of consciousness which may incorporate what is defined as essences and also defined as consciousness which is not necessarily essence.

PAUL: Ah!

ELIAS: It is a manner, so to speak, that you have chosen to be allowing yourself to blur this expression of separation.

PAUL: Understand. As a method, could I use that as a portal?

ELIAS: If you are so choosing, yes.

PAUL: Excellent. Ah, Lawrence and I have had a few conversations about the "Great Pancake Incident." This would be what I believe was a presentment to herself of an interaction in Regional Area 2; at least when I compare notes with her about my experience with Regional Area 2, they sound similar. Can you add anything to that observation, or indeed is it correct?

ELIAS: Let me express to you that you are participating in consciousness within Regional Area 2 and 1 simultaneously and in harmony with each other continuously. Therefore, is your direction of questioning an expression of validating your objective awareness of that occurrence, or that you are merely creating that action within Regional Area 2?

PAUL: I'm understanding that I'm continuously creating interactions within Regional Area 2 with basically everyone around me, everything around me. I was looking for objective validation that my interpretation of her incident was that meeting within Regional Area 2.

ELIAS: In an objective expression of it or recognition of it, yes.

PAUL: It's always, as a common-focused person, nice to have mutual speaking points. (Elias chuckles) My subjective communications to myself have been quite, shall we say, monotonous as of late. It is always, "Pay attention to self."

ELIAS: And this is the point! (Both laugh)

PAUL: Ah, yes! A dream that I had a few weeks ago: I had a dream interaction with a person that I recognized but couldn't identify. A question - was that a Dream Walker of the Sumafi family, and does that imply that I hold an aspect of Dream Walker?

ELIAS: I may express to you, you have allowed yourself a glimpse, and I may also express to you, yes that you do incorporate this aspect. You are correct.

PAUL: Does the aspect of Dream Walker have, shall we say, a practical application to this physical focus? I mean, it's nice information and everything, but is there something I CAN do with that information?

ELIAS: If you are so choosing.

Now; let me first of all express a clarification, for this type of direction of questioning generates potential for misinterpretation and distortion in the perception of other individuals as they offer themselves this information through the transcription. For in a manner of speaking, as always, it is subject to the filtration of individual's beliefs.

Therefore, let me express initially that incorporating an aspect of the Dream Walkers is not better and is not necessarily what you may associate as more special or offering you qualities that are more than any other individual. They may be different, but this also is a choice, and therefore individuals that do not incorporate an aspect of Dream Walkers are not less than those that do.

In this, essences that incorporate these aspects choose to be incorporating these aspects in relation to their particular choice of direction in their exploration of consciousness. It is merely a different type of expression of exploration.

Now; let me clarify. Essences that do not incorporate these aspects specifically choose not to be, for they have chosen to be exploring physical expressions of consciousness in what you may term to be an ultimate expression of physical manifestation, incorporating the fullness of exploring consciousness in ultimate physical manifestation.

Essences that choose to be incorporating an aspect of what is identified as Dream Walker are not more spiritual or more versatile than other essences. They choose to be incorporating a different type of exploration of physical manifestations of consciousness. Therefore, they choose to be incorporating a type of manifestation that does not express the same type of solidity of physical exploration as essences that do not incorporate this aspect. And I may express to you that in these different types of manifestations in your physical expressions there may be advantages, so to speak, to each of these types of expressions of essence.

Now; recognize that incorporating this aspect of Dream Walker or not is relative to this particular physical dimension, for this is an expression that has been created in association with this physical dimension. Therefore, those essences that choose to be incorporating this aspect of Dream Walker also choose to continue to incorporate an aspect of transparency, so to speak. This is not to say that an individual focus shall necessarily engage that aspect within their particular physical manifestation, but it is available if they are so choosing to be engaging that aspect of themself.

Now; in the engagement of that aspect of self in an individual focus - physical manifestation - the individual may choose to be exploring some aspects of their physical manifestation in less of a solid physical expression. Which, at times, individuals do incorporate actions in association with this aspect of their essence and may be confusing themselves or even incorporating expressions of fear, for they may be creating movements that are quite unfamiliar: viewing themselves to be incorporating less physical corporeal solidity at times, viewing their reality to be less solid at times, and incorporating more of a translucence within their individual reality in moments.

Now; an individual may be intentionally choosing to be expressing an exploration in relation to this aspect and creating an exploration in much more of an expression of translucence. But I may express to you, generally speaking, prior to the movement of this shift in consciousness this has not been expressed often, for it is quite unfamiliar.

You may engage this aspect if you are so choosing, and recognize that it is merely a different avenue of exploration of this physical dimension and your physical movement within it.

PAUL: I believe I'm understanding. I have not engaged this aspect of my essence yet, correct?

ELIAS: Not necessarily. I may express to you that you have engaged this aspect infrequently and quite momentarily.

PAUL: Ah! Those moments when suddenly physical reality takes on a particular sheen or type of solidity with which I have little familiarity. Is that the incident you are referring to?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking. For in these brief moments, reality appears to be non-reality.

PAUL: Yes! I'm thinking of an example of just a couple days ago, in which I was in a meeting that suddenly took on a ... I don't know how to describe the characteristic.

ELIAS: I am understanding. It appears to be a reality which is more likened to a dream than to waking reality, or at times appears to be what individuals express as surreal.

PAUL: Exactly! Okay, so that would be engaging that aspect of mine as a Dream Walker?

ELIAS: Yes.

PAUL: Interesting! I'm at a loss for words here because it seems to be becoming so completely intricate and convoluted, this thing we call reality. (Elias laughs) All right, I thank you for that.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.

PAUL: This is a fun one. I ran across a book in the bookstore recently on cat painting, where cats will dip their paws into paint and paint on various surfaces. I had the impression that it has to do with an aspect of an essence that has inserted itself into that creature as some form of expression. Am I even close here? (Pause)

ELIAS: Actually, no. Ha ha ha! I may express to you, this is an expression that is created in relation to the energy of the essences that are configuring that energy of the creature and the creature's agreement in their expression of consciousness to be compliant with the direction.

It is an experimentation, once again, exploration of manipulation of energy of consciousness that you create within your reality, in creating ALL of your reality and recognizing, although not necessarily objectively, that although each creature incorporates its own choices and creates its own expressions, you have directed the links of consciousness to be configured as the creature. Therefore in offering a direction in energy, the creature in agreement is compliant.

This is not an action of controlling a creature or creating its reality for it. It is a further exploration of how you each manipulate energy within consciousness to be creating your reality, for you are actually creating these expressions.

PAUL: Interesting. I had another impression that this stupid cat that I have that keeps popping into my reality, that it shared my focus of Shree An, my Egyptian focus, and that it participated in painting as far as their religious exploration, shall we say.

ELIAS: Correct - but you have created this.

PAUL: Yes. Well then, what I need to do is create a painting that I can sell for $28,000 so I can pay for some of this cat food.

ELIAS: HA HA HA HA! Quite an expensive cat! Ha ha ha!

PAUL: All right, it's time for the homework portion of the session.

ELIAS: Very well.

PAUL: You challenged me to be expressing how I created new focuses of my essence, and I did some writing on that in, shall we say, an altered state, that stated the process that results in more focuses is choice. Essence chooses to create a new focus - and I've applied the term "faceting" to that - in order to gain more experience, to diversify experience.

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: I also, in a manner of fun, invited you to make comments on that, using the, shall we say, "Forrest method" of highlighter, and there was one sentence that stuck out here that I was wondering if you could comment on. It had to do with: "This of course carries an element of responsibility with it, for once it is realized by a focus that it can, and does, create more facets of itself in the process of imagination, an avenue of communication is opened between the larger viewpoint, so to speak, of essence and how the new focus of attention will interact with all other focuses of attention." Can you comment on that? (Pause)

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, this is another expression of paying attention to self and generating a genuine expression of responsibility of self in an expression of essence.

PAUL: Okay, I'm not understanding that.

ELIAS: As an expression of essence, essences are not intrusive. Therefore in relation to objective expressions and intentional objective creations and recognizing the vastness of abilities and power that you incorporate as a focus and as being essence, in association with your physical dimension and the beliefs that are incorporated and the automatic expressions that are created in association with your beliefs there is significance in paying attention to self and incorporating responsibility of self concerning what you generate.

Now; let me express to you, what we are speaking of presently is in this present now quite hypothetical. For within your actual physical reality, you have not generated the intimacy in relationship with self yet and the genuine understanding of the vastness of your abilities and the powerfulness of your abilities yet to be objectively expressing this type of action yet. This is not to say that it is impossible or that you do not incorporate the ability to be creating this type of expression objectively and intentionally. But within this present time framework we are speaking hypothetically, for you are not actually generating this type of movement yet in awareness.

Therefore, I wish not to be offering expressions to you in a manner of cautioning or warning, so to speak, for it is unnecessary. But in like manner to cautionings that I have offered to individuals previously in certain expressions that they have allowed themselves an objective awareness of their ability within, I may express to you that in widening your awareness you are moving closer to the realization of some of these types of abilities.

Therefore, there is significance in offering information to you with regard to responsibility and expressions of essence, for you are creating and exploring within a physical dimension that does express belief systems and the automatic expressions of those belief systems continues to be quite familiar. Are you following thus far?

PAUL: Yes, I believe that I am. And you did touch very well on the concern that I had that if imagination indeed does create a focus, then I don't, in view of my belief system, feel I have that ability at this time to be creating responsibly, shall we say.

ELIAS: Objectively.

PAUL: Yes.

ELIAS: I am understanding. For I may express to you, my friend, that the familiar and the automatic expression in direction is to associate that YOU are the creator, and therefore are more than or manipulating of or directing of.

Now; this in actuality is not the situation, in a manner of speaking, although in another manner of speaking it is. You may be creating of another focus, but you are not manipulating it and you are not directing it; but as it is another expression of you as essence, every focus of attention is affecting and influencing of every other focus of attention.

Therefore as I have expressed previously, essences are not intrusive, BUT you may be intrusive to yourself. You shall automatically not be intrusive to another essence, but you may generate this type of action in relation to self as essence, which ultimately is affecting of you.

PAUL: Understand.

ELIAS: It is not in actuality that, in a manner of speaking, you shall be directing of another focus or that you shall be altering of another focus - although in actuality you may be to an extent, for it is you - but in creating these types of actions and not recognizing objectively and understanding your responsibility to self, you also create affectingness of you.

In a manner of speaking, it may be similar to viewing your physical body and turning your attention to one particular area of your physical body, in example, turning your attention to your physical organ of your heart and creating an expression of energy to attempt to be manipulating it as separate from yourself and therefore choosing to be affecting of this particular organ and stopping its movement. In creating that action, you are also affecting of you.

PAUL: Very good analogy! I am much acknowledging of you.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) For your physical expression is not separated from you, and therefore in not incorporating a genuine responsibility of self and your choices and recognizing that all of these expressions are you and are not separable from you, but that you may perceive that they are separable from you, you may be affecting of a particular expression but you shall also be affecting of what you perceive to be the whole of you.

PAUL: Yes. I do see it now.

ELIAS: For you may not affect one aspect without affecting the whole.

PAUL: As I am coming to understand.

ELIAS: This is the reason that I have expressed many times to many individuals, concern yourself not with personal responsibility in relation to other individuals or to any other expression of consciousness, but concern yourselves with expressing responsibility to self, for this is great enough to be expressing.

PAUL: Yes, like we're not busy enough taking care of ourselves, we've got to try and do it with everybody else, too! (Elias laughs)

Let's see, just a couple more here. I had a strong connection with Vincent Van Gogh. I initially had the strong impression I was his brother, but Lawrence tells me that's a focus of his essence. The next impression was that I was Vincent Van Gogh's brother's wife; I don't even know her name. (Pause)

ELIAS: Son.

PAUL: I'm sorry, I missed that.

ELIAS: The son.

PAUL: The son of Vincent Van Gogh's brother?

ELIAS: Correct.

PAUL: Interesting. All right! Thank you very much for our time together.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome, my friend. I shall be anticipating our continued interaction and our objective meeting futurely.

PAUL: Ah yes, that shall be much fun. Excitement is already being generated.

ELIAS: As always! Ha ha ha!

PAUL: Oh yes, now I remember. I have been having a lot of fun interacting with you in the creation of my musical adventure.

ELIAS: And in appreciation?

PAUL: Of course! (Both laugh) On that note, I shall be seeing you futurely.

ELIAS: Very well, my friend. And I shall express to you also, as always, my tremendous affection, and I offer you encouragement. Continue in your exploration and be playful. To you this day, au revoir.

PAUL: Au revoir.

Elias departs at 4:05 PM.

(1) Paul's note: Probably more accurately described as the "Mary method." From Session #269, 3/19/98, footnote: "(1) In Forrest's words, this is how the highlighting occurred: 'Mary read the essays consciously as she normally would, and when her intuition told her to, she highlighted in the usual manner with a yellow pen.'"

(2) Paul's note: Another Vincent Van Gogh, interestingly enough.
