Friday, May 27, 2016 (Private)

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Brigitt (Camile)

ELIAS: Good afternoon!

BRIGITT: Good afternoon, Elias!

ELIAS: (Laughs) And what shall we discuss this day?

BRIGITT: A little bit of everything, maybe.

ELIAS: Very well.

BRIGITT: I’d like to start with a question for my son, who has taken an interest in the Elias material lately. He’s learning about it.

ELIAS: Congratulations!

BRIGITT: Thank you. (Elias chuckles) He would like to know his intent. His guess, or he said, “My intent has to do with mingling.” He likes to mingle, and the reason is that every time he has a dream or any imagination, it’s always among other people.

ELIAS: And that is an excellent identification. It is an exploration of combinations.

BRIGITT: An exploration of combinations. Excellent.

ELIAS: And that would be definitely an excellent translation of that.

BRIGITT: Okay. He’s better at this than I am! (Both laugh) So, oh good! What else was I going to ask?

If you can do a general scan of my health, is there anything I should be concerned about?

ELIAS: Are you concerned? (Chuckles)

BRIGITT: Well, I think every once in a while I should be concerned about minor little symptoms and stuff, but not really. Do you know what I mean?

ELIAS: Such as?

BRIGITT: Such as, well, I get a little twitch in my thumb, and then I have this pain here every once in a while. And I thought, well, it had to do with hormones, but I’m not sure what it is, right? And just… You know, I never really worry too much. I have this innate trust in my own health, but…

ELIAS: Very well. (Pause) What I would express, these are random discomforts, random parts of your body, or seemingly random?


ELIAS: Occasionally?

BRIGITT: Occasionally, yep.

ELIAS: I would express two factors. But first I would express that you are actually expressing excellent health.

BRIGITT: Thank you. That’s good.

ELIAS: In that, at times if you are experiencing time frameworks in which you may be more…not necessarily anxious, but incorporating somewhat more stress than usual, or you may be expressing more frustration or irritation than usual. What you do is breathe different.


ELIAS: And when you breathe differently, you are generating a different combination of gases when you breathe in, for you are breathing shallowly. And in that, it is affecting in your circulatory system, not in any damaging manner, or not in any manner to be concerned with or that it is affecting of your heart; it merely creates an imbalance in the gases, and that creates these random, or what seem to be random, pains that are very fleeting. They are not like ongoing pains would be, but they seem to be come-and-go and in odd areas.


ELIAS: And not consistently only in one area. In that, it is more associated with the different combinations of gases that is within your blood stream. You can alleviate a considerable amount of that if you notice when you are stressed or irritated or frustrated, and not to breathe exceptionally deeply, for that would also create an imbalance, but to allow yourself to breathe naturally.

BRIGITT: Naturally. Okay.

How would you say I’m doing with presence? When I remember, I try to be present. I know sometimes I am present, sometimes I get spontaneously present, sometimes I’m not. (Laughs) But overall, would you say I am getting better at it? Or getting more—

ELIAS: Definitely, yes. Definitely improved.

BRIGITT: Okay. Good.

ELIAS: In that, let me inquire of you: if you are attempting to be present, how are you trying to be present?

BRIGITT: How am I trying to be present? I’m trying to deliberately not pay attention to the distractions. It’s easy for me to pick up a lot of energy from other people around me and jumble it in. Do you know what I mean? Sort of? So I try to not do that. I try to deliberately stop that or buffer or something. Buffer? Yeah. And then buffer it all out. And when I’m not present, I think I naturally just will pick up energies around me and what’s going on, people and stuff.

ELIAS: Excellent.

BRIGITT: Could it ever become a permanent condition?

ELIAS: Very much so. (Laughs) And THAT would be the goal!

BRIGITT: That would be the goal. Okay, good. All right. (Elias chuckles) Sometimes it’s fun just to go someplace and not buffer, and just feel in a good place, and the energy in the room is really good and people are happy…

ELIAS: What I would express to you is you can be present and experience all of that.

BRIGITT: Oh. Okay.

ELIAS: It is not necessary to be concentrating on buffering.


ELIAS: Being present is being aware of your participation in the moment, in whatever you are doing, and being aware of your existence in that.

When you are aware of your own existence, it changes your perception. And when you are aware of how you are participating in everything, in anything, in the moment and not drifting past or future, but are aware of being now, being present, participating—which, I acknowledge, is challenging, for you are not accustomed to doing that—but when you are, your perception changes. It is not that you exclude anything outside of you or in your environment. It is not that you are not paying attention to everything around you, but you are a part of it.

And in that, you know that you are participating with everything, and that everything is also a part of you. Therefore, your perception changes in that state, and it is not to any exclusion. Therefore, you are not limiting your experience.

But in that, this is also the reason that you are inclined to be much less, if not completely, non-reactive, for reaction is expressed in relation to threat in varying degrees. But if there were no threat, you would not react. Even when you react in a capacity of excitement, the initial reaction is startled. And in that, it may not be necessarily what you would think of as a BAD threat, but anything that initially is perceived as a threat creates a reaction.

If you are genuinely being present, you are so aware of being a part of everything and everything being a part of you, you are so aware of that interconnectedness that there is no threat, for you are creating it all.

And in that, you are generating all of the choices, and you are genuinely creating all of your reality. Therefore, there is no threat. Therefore, there is no reason to be reactive. And there is a difference between reacting and responding.

But understand that it is definitely not a matter of exclusion, but the reverse. It is all INclusion. And in that, it is not a matter of having to or attempting to buffer out. You may amaze yourself at how much you can intake and not actually be scattered.

BRIGITT: That would be interesting. (Elias laughs) I’m going to practice that later tonight, I’m sure (laughs), because there will be opportunity, I’m sure.

What else do I have to ask? Oh, who am I fragmented from? The first thing that came into my head when I thought about it was Rose, but I don’t know why.


BRIGITT: One? Oh, okay.

ELIAS: And Patel and Marius.

BRIGITT: Marius? Marius. Do I know a focus of Marius?

ELIAS: Presently unlikely.

BRIGITT: Unlikely. Okay. Patel, interesting. Orange? (Elias laughs) Okay. And...

ELIAS: Or flashing colors, orange and blue.

BRIGITT: Oh god! (Elias laughs) Actually, that could…anyway, gender energy. I was thinking my balance of gender energy was 65-35, maybe 70-30? On the female side, obviously.

ELIAS: The first.

BRIGITT: 65-35? That’s what I thought. Okay. Now I can’t really think of anything to ask. (Elias laughs) I’ll interrupt if I can think of anything. So is there anything you’d like to say?

Okay, yes. Relationships—there’s a good one, like in an intimate partnership. I’m not in that situation, but I’m in a situation when I think about it I think I could be, I should be. Part of me wants to be and part of me doesn’t want to be in one, right? And I know I probably have attachments and constructs and all sorts of things…

ELIAS: As do you all.

BRIGITT: Yeah, so I think it’s just easier for me not to deal with any of it and just be happy right now. Should I just let it flow naturally, or should I be working on something about myself to change my perception to create?


BRIGITT: Well…(laughs)

ELIAS: What are you concerned about if you allow yourself to flow—

BRIGITT: In the situation—

ELIAS: --and therefore you may not necessarily create that, or you might and perhaps not NOW.


ELIAS: But in that, what is your concern in association with a relationship, an intimate relationship?

BRIGITT: I think my concern is I truly don’t know if I WANT one, because I don’t know if I have the…I would have to be more…I would like to be a little bit more independent. I don’t know if I would want somebody around all the time. I would like to, you know, share space for partial time but not all the time, like not having someone else live with me.

ELIAS: Then why are you concerned with the idea of a relationship?

BRIGITT: Because I’m thinking that that might be difficult to create or to find. And then a part of me thinks, your criteria is way too wrong, like you should be more open to…people are attracted to me, but I’m not so much attracted to them back in that way, right? So a part of me thinks…that I’m shielding? I don’t feel like I’m shielding, but maybe I am. Am I not avoiding anything? Am I not, like...?


BRIGITT: Okay, good.

ELIAS: I would express to you, you are moving in the direction of your preferences and perhaps merely not acknowledging that that is permissible.

BRIGITT: Yeah. Maybe. That’s true.

ELIAS: That you can move in the direction of your preferences, and that does not designate that there is something wrong with you.

BRIGITT: Oh, good. Okay.

ELIAS: In this, what I would say to you is if you want to generate a relationship with another individual, then you will. And not to concern yourself with that. It is not a subject to BE concerned ABOUT. You are not dysfunctioning or unhappy in the direction that you are engaging.


ELIAS: And in that, remember: you always create more. Therefore, the more satisfied you are, the more you will create satisfaction. And if that enters into the equation of that that is a piece that you want to be satisfying to you, then you will include that. But at this point, I would express that you are busy exploring you.


ELIAS: And sharing with your son.

BRIGITT: Yes. Yes. I’m so happy.

ELIAS: Therefore, I would express that that is the intimate male relationship in your life at this point.

BRIGITT: This is true. (Elias laughs) He’d better not hear that part! Oh, that’s good. And he is… Are you communicating with him? I don’t know if he’s seen blue flashes or not.

ELIAS: I do.

BRIGITT: Do you? And is he aware?

ELIAS: At times. (Chuckles)

BRIGITT: At times? Excellent.

ELIAS: Although I would express that it is amusing that he QUESTIONS that.

BRIGITT: Yeah! Right?

ELIAS: I would express that although it is amusing, it is not surprising, with his mother’s input. (Both laugh)

BRIGITT: Well, naturally. Oh dear. (Elias laughs) Yeah.

ELIAS: Not to be accepting merely on face value, but genuinely look for what resonates with you. And, in a manner of speaking, he has heard that.

BRIGITT: Okay. And he will find what resonates with him?

ELIAS: He has a discerning character.


ELIAS: And in that, a healthy skepticism. (Both laugh)

BRIGITT: Good. So what else can we talk about for fun? (Both laugh)

ELIAS: Whatever you choose.

BRIGITT: Yes. Oh yeah, I’m going to win the Powerball tomorrow! (Laughs)

ELIAS: Ah! And how do you plan to do that?

BRIGITT: I have no idea.

ELIAS: For I would express that there are MANY individuals that would definitely be interested in your secret.

BRIGITT: Oh yeah. Yes. We’ll talk tomorrow. (Both laugh) Is there a way I can work on being more abundant? I’m not in a bad situation financially, it’s okay, but I COULD be richer, right? But even saying that, part of me feels like, “Oh you’re just being too greedy!” You know what I mean?

ELIAS: And there is your (inaudible).

BRIGITT: I know. I’ve detected that, but it’s so natural, right?

ELIAS: What I would express, no. It is not natural; it is learned. But it is so ingrained. THAT I would agree with. But in that, what I would suggest is that you practice more with deserving.


ELIAS: And genuinely believing it.

BRIGITT: That’s the hard part. Because the ingrained part is—

ELIAS: Not the EARNING, the DESERVING. That you not only deserve what you earn, but that you deserve because you exist.


ELIAS: Are you breathing?

BRIGITT: Okay, then I…

ELIAS: Are you breathing?

BRIGITT: Yes, I’m breathing.

ELIAS: Then you are deserving. (Laughs)

BRIGITT: I know. Yeah.

ELIAS: And even when you stop breathing, you will be deserving.

BRIGITT: Deserving. Excellent. Excellent.

Speaking of stopping breathing, how is my mom doing? Is she aware that she’s passed yet?


BRIGITT: No. I didn’t think so. (Elias laughs) Because sometimes I just get—I get glimpses of her, or I feel like I suddenly think to talk to her or make a comment about something and (inaudible) her energy, and so I don’t think she’s passed on. Or she doesn’t know yet, right?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) But that does not invalidate the energy being projected or you receiving it, or you projecting energy to her. That all occurs, regardless. It is merely the manner in which it is configured. Therefore, you project energy, she perceives it coming from your image.

BRIGITT: Oh, okay. Excellent.

ELIAS: Not from another direction. Therefore, she expresses to your image and it is projected to you, although it may not always entirely hit the center of the target. When they are not aware yet of their death, the energy may be projected and it may move through those layers of consciousness in somewhat of an off direction, but in close physical proximity to you.

BRIGITT: Yeah. (Laughs) I think I pick it up. Okay. So that’s good.

And Mr. Lord? Has he…? Last time I believe someone asked, and you said he was beginning to notice the holes?

ELIAS: Yes. But has he remembered his death? No. But yes, he is very curious. He is a very curious individual, and yes, he is very aware of the holes at this point, although his idea about them is more in the direction of mind control with them, which is not necessarily being successful. But he is experimenting. (Chuckles)

BRIGITT: Oh good! (Laughs) That’s good! (Elias chuckles)

Okay. Let’s see. I must have some concurrent focuses?


BRIGITT: I do? Like four others?

ELIAS: Five.

BRIGITT: Five? Five others. And now those are alive at the same… like right now, right?


BRIGITT: Okay. Would it be beneficial…? Could I treasure hunt? Could I find them? Or...?

ELIAS: You could. Will you likely ever meet them? No.

BRIGITT: No. Okay. So they’re in different parts of the world then?



ELIAS: And even if they weren’t, you would likely not meet them anyway, for generally you would not. It does occur but very infrequently.

BRIGITT: All right. And the reason—is that because essence is just experiencing five different focuses and it…?

ELIAS: Five different perspectives.

BRIGITT: Perspectives. Okay.

ELIAS: In a particular time framework. Or six. Or eight. In that, meeting another you in the same time framework, in relation to the preservation of your individual identity, you would likely be uninterested in the other individual or repelled. You would either incorporate little if no interest in the other individual—and vice versa—or you would definitely be repelled and not want to engage with them.

It is very rare in which two focuses of an essence in the same time framework in physical manifestation will meet and will express any interest in each other at all, for it is too threatening to your individuality and your identity in this physical reality. This is a part of the design of that separation. You have an individual body. You have an individual perception of yourself. You are an individual.

And in that, you are unique in your design. When you present yourself in what you term to be real time, now, present, with another physically manifest individual that is you, that is disturbing to your body consciousness.

BRIGITT: Oh really? Okay.

ELIAS: Your body consciousness generates a very unique signature. It is very literally one of a kind. There has never been, nor will there ever be, another identical you, ever. Even a clone.


ELIAS: And in that, that uniqueness, that individuality, that separation, which is a part of your reality is expressed for reasons, to allow you the purity of your experiences and to experience reality, this reality, in a very real capacity.

Presenting and facing yourself with another you in present time is a tremendous confusion to the body consciousness, for you are the only you.

BRIGITT: So the body consciousness would recognize that other person as you as well?

ELIAS: As your energy.

BRIGITT: And be confused?

ELIAS: Yes. That cannot be, in physical focus. You cannot be two. Even twins, even identical twins, are not the same exactly. And in that, if you are entirely unique, there cannot be another you. But there are.

BRIGITT: Yeah, but the body doesn’t—

ELIAS: Does not acknowledge that and does not recognize that. It only recognizes your own one manifestation and your signature.

BRIGITT: So can I ask you about flow? Am I flowing a little bit better?

ELIAS: Than?

BRIGITT: Than I was flowing six months ago? (Both laugh) Or five years ago?

ELIAS: Definitely. Definitely from five years ago, and definitely even from six months ago. I would definitely agree. I would express tremendously more so than you were one year ago at this time.

BRIGITT: Ah! Good. Excellent. Even in…it was Rome. Oh. Okay. Interesting.

ELIAS: And I am aware you THOUGHT you were flowing!

BRIGITT: I thought I was (Elias laughs) for the most part. It was actually very nice. I was very happy there.

ELIAS: Yes, you were. And yes, you enjoyed yourself. Was that necessarily always flowing? No. (Chuckles) But I would express that you are considerably more so now than you were then. There is a difference—

BRIGITT: So what can I do to remember or to know when I’m not in flow? Is there…?

ELIAS: Let me express in this way. There is a difference between trying to not be bothered and genuinely not being bothered because you are in a flow. Therefore, you can be having fun and enjoying yourself and moving in a particular direction, and at different points be trying to not be bothered by whatever may be presenting itself to you, and then ignoring it or distracting yourself away from whatever is being bothersome to you or attempting to generate it being less important. There is a difference between that and actually naturally flowing, in which what is occurring around you is not necessarily bothersome to you. And even if you present something to yourself that is somewhat bothersome to you, it dissipates considerably quickly and you don’t have to TRY to not be bothered.

And in that, think of the word “flow.” Think of the stream. Think of a boulder in the stream. There could be a boulder in your stream, but you flow around it or you flow over it.

In that, is it there? Is it an obstacle? Yes. But it does not stop the movement. It does not interrupt it. It merely changes your movement. It changes the direction. You move around or you move over. And in that, the stream doesn’t have to try to not be bothered by the boulder. It merely moves around it.

I would express that one year prior when we were engaging in Rome, you were in several time frameworks trying not to be bothered.

BRIGITT: Yes. (Both laugh) So in a case like that, suddenly I am bothered. I realize I’m not in the flow because it’s there and I’m bothered. Just acknowledge it? And then what do you do in a situation like that? If you can’t ignore it, obviously, or…obviously it has to be acknowledged first, and then—

ELIAS: Yes. That would be the first piece, is to acknowledge it. Therefore, you notice you are being bothered and you acknowledge that to yourself. You accept it for what it is, not attempting to change it or dismiss it, but merely accept it for what it is.

Then you can begin to ask yourself certain questions: why is this so important to me? For if something is presenting itself that is bothersome to you, the reason it is bothersome to you is because it is important. Why? Why is it important?

Generally, what will be automatically bothersome to you will be some expression that another individual generates that perhaps you don’t agree with, or perhaps you perceive differently, or perhaps you actually think and believe that they are incorrect and that you know different or you know better. Why is that important to you? Meaning, not why is knowing what you know important to you—why is it important to you that you express that difference? Why is it important to you that you make it known or bring to the other individual’s attention that difference? What is it that is actually being bothersome to you?

Or, you address it directly. If an individual is sitting next to you in a restaurant and is poking you with their finger or is banging their fork on the table and is annoying you in that action, it is very easy to assess why is this important to you or why is this bothersome to you, and you can address it directly.

If another individual is expressing an opinion about what is on the menu and you disagree with them, why is it important to you to correct them? That is different. In that, what is it that is important to you, that you are not being seen or heard that creates that situation in which it is important to you to voice what you perceive differently, or to correct another individual and to be right, and essentially to express how they are wrong.

For in that, it is not a matter of the subject. It matters not. You may be right, and you may be correct. And they may be incorrect in what they are expressing. They may be uninformed. Does that mean that it is necessary that you bring that to their attention? Why? Is it necessary to inform them that they are incorrect? Why? They will discover it themselves if it is important to them, just as you will discover for yourself if something is important to you if you are incorrect in some direction.

But in actuality, what does it matter to you? In that, it is not a matter of the subject. The subject actually matters not. It is whether you are right or not and whether other individuals know it.

Therefore, there is some element of yourself that is perceiving that it requires being heard or seen, that to this point for a certain time framework I have been feeling and experiencing not being important or not being seen or not being heard, therefore I will address another individual and point out to them that they are incorrect, and everyone will look at me and will listen to me. That is the point in why is this important.

Therefore, in the moment you assess the situation, and whatever it is that is bothersome to you, you define it and then define why is it bothersome to me. Why is it important to me? With the example of the tapping on you or tapping on the table, it may be irritating to one of your senses or all of your senses. Therefore, in that, you can address to that immediately, and it is not a matter of right or wrong. It is a matter of comfort or discomfort, and that you are not expressing to the other individual that they are wrong. You are not correcting them. You are expressing in a direction of, “This is uncomfortable for me, and I am expressing in this manner because I am uncomfortable.”

In the other example, it is a matter of right or wrong, and expressing that.

Therefore, in any situation it is a matter of assessing first, acknowledging what you are feeling and assessing why am I feeling this and what is important about it, and is it actually really important, or is it not?

BRIGITT: And in being present, those situations would rarely ever come up, because you would be aware, or you would be aware right away—


BRIGITT: --and then you acknowledge it right away, and it requires a millisecond of thought and it’s gone.

ELIAS: That would one way. This is a common misconception, that if you are present you will NEVER present to yourself any uncomfortable or bothersome situation. Incorrect.

In that, let me express to you yes, you are creating all of your reality, every millisecond of it, every aspect of it. But you are also participating with billions of other individuals, and they are also creating their reality. And they do not always match. They do not always match.

And in that, is it possible for you to present something to yourself that another individual is creating as a reflection to yourself to gauge how you will respond? Yes. And you may be being present and being aware. And in that, you are giving yourself the opportunity to continue to expand, by presenting to yourself scenarios that you would not necessarily create alone. Which gives you the opportunity to view your reflections and assess what your choices are.

Therefore, it is not that you never present any challenge to yourself if you are always present. If you never presented any challenge to yourself, you also would never present any surprises.

BRIGITT: True. Right. Okay, Elias, we were talking yesterday, and we came up with a question. You always say after the shift we are not creating utopia.

ELIAS: Precisely.

BRIGITT: Why not? (Laughs) The question was: why not? Why would we not be creating utopia? Is it because we’d all be bored? There is no expansion in utopia?

ELIAS: Think about your reality. Think about the basis of your reality. What are the two base elements of your reality?

BRIGITT: Sexuality and emotion.

ELIAS: Correct. Now; in that, what do sexuality and emotion represent?

BRIGITT: Sexuality would be the physical.

ELIAS: Correct.

BRIGITT: And emotional would be the subjective.

ELIAS: Communication.

BRIGITT: Communication. Yeah.

ELIAS: Correct. Now; in relation to emotional communication, what is the display of that?

BRIGITT: The display of emotional communication? Feelings.

ELIAS: Feeling.


ELIAS: Precisely. Excellent. Ten points!

BRIGITT: (Laughs) Thank you. Do I get a star?

ELIAS: You are answering all of the questions correctly!

Now; you are evaluating your reality, emotion and physical. In this, as you define that in all of its pieces more specifically, if you are incorporating that factor of feeling alone, you would be eliminating more than half of your feelings if you were creating utopia.

BRIGITT: That’s true.

ELIAS: Therefore, what would be the point of that? This is a part of the design. You are exploring this reality, therefore, you are exploring these experiences in relation to these guidelines, which include emotional expressions, which include feeling.

In this, communication—which includes physical feeling also—if you are creating utopia then you are eliminating more than half of your physical feelings also. And in relation to the physical, if you are creating utopia then you are eliminating evolving. If you are eliminating evolving, you are limiting your choice.


ELIAS: You cannot limit your choice. THAT is why you are not creating utopia.

BRIGITT: Is there any physical dimension that’s created utopia or something similar for any time period, say, or for…?

ELIAS: Yes. Yes. And I would express that, in translation in what you know or what you would understand, their lifespan is considerably short.

BRIGITT: Okay. Is it like…? So this is a utopian society that’s their…they’re not moving out of it? It’s just a short time period that they live in this society and then—


BRIGITT: --off they go.

ELIAS: Yes. There is no evolution.

BRIGITT: So it’s like a vacation spot for essence or something? (Laughs) You pop in for a few years, lie on the beach. (Elias chuckles) You know what I mean? And then say okay, let’s go back to earth.

ELIAS: I would express that in your terms, essence is continuously in a vacation spot. (Both laugh)

BRIGITT: Oh yeah? Okay.

ELIAS: Other than physical realities.

BRIGITT: Right. Okay. (Elias chuckles)

Anybody have any ideas? I’ve covered I think everything we’ve talked about, that I could come up with.

MALE: How much time you got left?

BRIGITT: I don’t know. What time is it?

MALE: It’s 3:35.

BRIGITT: I think we have about 10 minutes. (Elias chuckles) Elias, is there anything you’d like to say? Maybe some advice, or something? (Elias laughs) Whatever.

ELIAS: Other than being present?

BRIGITT: Other than being present.

ELIAS: Be intentional.

BRIGITT: Intentional. Okay.

ELIAS: That would be our theme for this day, to be intentional, whether you believe it or not.

BRIGITT: Okay. Whether I believe it or not.

ELIAS: Intentionally generate in actions and in relation to feelings, even, in what you value and what you’d rather.

BRIGITT: What I’d rather. Okay.

ELIAS: Be intentional, even if you don’t believe it. If you are distressed or you are angry or you are frustrated and you are noticing and you don’t want to be, whether you believe it or not, be intentional. Express intentionally different.


ELIAS: You notice that your energy will change, but the feeling might not—at least not initially. But in that, remember: whatever energy you are projecting is not necessarily gauged by your (inaudible) by what you are feeling. Your feelings are not an indicator of what energy you are projecting.

Therefore, you might reflect very differently to yourself if you are being intentional. For in that, you may be feeling distressed or irritated, and you may intentionally choose to express differently and not necessarily believe what you are expressing, for you are continuing to feel what you are feeling, and you believe that. You believe what you are feeling.

But regardless of whether you believe it or not, it does not matter that it changes your energy. You don’t have to believe to change your energy.

BRIGITT: That’s very interesting. I’m going to try that in traffic.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Excellent!

BRIGITT: I’m driving along—because I feel irritated, and so instead of swearing or yelling or stuff like that, I’ll just wave “Hi!” Do you know what I mean? Like, total opposite of what I’m actually feeling would be.

ELIAS: Precisely. And in that, it does change your energy, and you will begin to reflect differently. In this, the difficulty –

BRIGITT: Because it feels so false, right?

ELIAS: Precisely!

BRIGITT: It feels false, like you’re not being honest.

ELIAS: It is that you believe that it IS false, that it is pretend, that it is not real. But it is. You believe that it isn’t because you are not feeling it. But why would you feel it? Why do you present feelings?

If you are being intentional, if you are expressing intentional, there is no need to create a feeling. The feeling is a signal to alert you to a message, to a communication. If you are already aware of the communication it is not necessary to generate a feeling.

Therefore, the previous feeling remains, for you are partially continuing to pay attention to it, and in that, you may be skeptical and irritated that you are pretending and that you are not being genuine in expressing differently. It matters not, for you are engaging the action, and that changes the energy.

BRIGITT: Okay. And that changes the energy.

ELIAS: It is not merely a matter of THINKING about it. You are DOING an action, and that changes the energy. Therefore that shall be the theme.

BRIGITT: Yes. Excellent.

ELIAS: Be intentional.

BRIGITT: Be intentional. Okay. Thank you.

ELIAS: You are very welcome. I shall greatly be anticipating our next meeting.

BRIGITT: Me, too!

ELIAS: In wondrous lovingness to you, as always.

BRIGITT: Au revoir.

ELIAS: Au revoir.

(Elias departs after 58 minutes)
