Session 57


Sunday, November 26, 1995

Participants: Mary (Michael, Vicki (Lawrence), Ron (Olivia), Cathy (Shynla), Guin (Sophia), Tom (James), Jeri (Fromasch), and arriving late, Jim (Yarr).

Elias arrives at 6:34 PM

ELIAS: Good evening! (Smiling)

GROUP: Good evening!

ELIAS: And, you are all well this evening?

GROUP: Yes.

ELIAS: And, shall I ask this question once again? (Grinning)

TOM: I say, wait ‘til next week! (Laughter)

ELIAS: I will begin by offering you a small bit of information, and then I will allow freely for your questions.

Within physical focus, you incorporate a corporeal existence. In this, your existence is comprised of experiences. You incorporate your experiences, that you may evaluate yourselves and your interaction. In this, you pull or draw to yourselves energy and experience which is in alignment with whatever you are focusing upon within the moment. Therefore, it is not a coincidence that you seem to encounter many elements within your waking state, and also within your dream state, that seem to be all connecting with any particular issue that you are incorporating at the moment. You do this continuously. You have always done this. You draw to yourselves energy which produces circumstances or information for your benefit, for problem-solving.

You also draw to yourselves like energy and information at all and any given points. If you are experiencing joyfulness, you draw to yourself like energy. Individuals surrounding you will be expressing of this same joyfulness. If you are experiencing confusion, you draw to yourself individuals or information to be incorporating helpfulness to be solving of your confusion. I do not say to you that if you are experiencing confusion or conflict, that you draw to you others who are also experiencing conflict or confusion, for this is not necessarily the case. Most of your time, if you are experiencing conflict, you will draw to yourself individuals or information to be clearing of the conflict. You do not always recognize that this is what you are actually doing. Many times, you draw yourselves into situations that you perceive to be a perpetuation of the conflict. This is only your physical perception of the situation. In actuality, you have drawn to yourself energy to be helpful in solving the conflict, by illustrating to you within physical terms that you understand, and that you may evaluate. You do not always find your answers, or partial answers, from another individual. You may experience helpfulness from another individual at certain moments. Many times, you may draw information in what you would think of being very strange places.

Information and energy is all around you and always available to you. You need only be noticing, and be understanding of the resources that are available to you, and also be recognizing that the circumstances that are occurring within your existence are happening for your own benefit. You are creating them; just as I have said to you, many times; you create your reality. You also, within this, create all that is affecting of you. (Pause, smiling)

Each of you have drawn to yourselves information that you need to incorporate for your experiences, and each individual point that you are all experiencing, you draw to yourselves the information for widening your awareness. You do not always accept the information which is available. This only creates conflict. You may not always instantly understand what you have drawn to yourselves, or what you are actually experiencing, but if you are accepting of yourself and your experiences, you will incorporate no conflict, for you will understand.

You all possess an inner knowing. Within this, you do not always physically recognize your abilities, or your knowing, or your remembering, but they are all quite in working order, continuously. This is why I offer to you exercises, that you may be allowing yourselves examples in experiencing, that you may recognize more easily the “normal” situations which are occurring within your existence continuously. (Pause, looking around at everybody) Now that we have established that you are all not so very fine this evening, (grinning, followed by laughter), and you are aware that you draw to you energy for your understanding, you may have the floor.

TOM: Is this an open floor? (Elias nods, and there is a pause) A bunch of deadheads this evening! I got a game question.

ELIAS: We will incorporate our game later. (Pause)

VICKI: Well, I have a question regarding what you’ve been talking about, and my own wondering this week about aspects, and what exactly are aspects?

ELIAS: All of you! (Grinning at Vicki)

VICKI: And the connections between aspects, have those, are we just noticing them and they’ve always been there?

ELIAS: Correct. You may not incorporate separation of aspects, for aspects of essence are all of essence. Your focus, this focus, resides in this particular aspect of reality, this focus; this being only one aspect of essence. Every element I have offered you, that we have discussed of essence, is an aspect.

VICKI: To think of one thing as being an aspect for one person, and not being for another person, would be incorporating separation?

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: So it’s just the noticing and connecting by the individual, at that particular moment in the experience, that creates the aspect?

ELIAS: The aspect exists whether you are noticing or not. The reality exists whether you are aware or not. (Pause)

VICKI: I don’t even really understand my own question! (Laughing)

RON: I brought up Albert Einstein as an example one night, and you said that was an aspect.

ELIAS: Correct.

RON: An aspect of my personality?

ELIAS: Correct. Think to yourselves to our example of your water of your ocean once more; your essence being the ocean, each drop being an aspect of this ocean, but all being inseparable, all being intermingled, none being differentiated from another, no one drop being more important than another, but all comprising the whole.

RON: Well, what causes the draw to certain people then, because I thought that had something to do with an aspect, because I’ve always had a certain draw to Albert Einstein, been interested in his ...

ELIAS: Within the incorporation of personality of essence, each essence incorporates many aspects. I am not expressing for you to be incorporating separation of one essence individually separated from another, but each essence incorporates a basic personality type which it also manifests in many aspects, which you may also view as focuses; not in the respect of developmental focuses, but all focuses; just as you would incorporate with your physical camera apparatus, viewing through many lenses simultaneously many aspects of one whole picture. Within this, your essence creates many aspects of one personality. Therefore, within the whole of essence, all of these are incorporated. This also creates an identification and a draw. RON: Thank you. (Pause)

VICKI: Well, in the same vein, my other question I’ve been thinking about all week might sound silly, but ...

RON: PI! (Our abbreviation for personal invalidation)

ELIAS: Thank you! (Vicki groans)

VICKI: You’ve told us quite a few times that an individual was, say, a splinter of ourselves, but I haven’t heard you say that we are a splinter of another essence.

ELIAS: For you have not asked!

VICKI: Okay, then I’m asking. What about the other way around?

ELIAS: Obviously, you are also splinters of other essences, for you have been fragmented. This does not necessarily mean that you incorporate the personality type of the fragmenting essence. Some do, for some are splintered for a time, in your terms. They are not fragmented in a way that you would view, incorporating an instantaneousness. Many of these concepts are very difficult to be explaining to you, for within your focus, much of your existence is revolving around the concept of time, and when you are eliminating time, it creates a difficulty in expressing to you differences in dealing with issues of essence and fragmentation and splintering and so forth, for there is, in actuality, no time incorporated, but let us use a time-oriented example: that you may incorporate a splinter of yourself, or you may be a splinter of another essence, and you may be within a parallel existence, but not independent in personality. At a point, you may fragment, but you will incorporate many personality trait “sameness”, for you have incorporated a continuance paralleling the fragmenting essence. Some fragmented essences incorporate very different personality types. (Pause)

Each of you have been fragmented of an essence. Some of you have incorporated a splintering fragmentation. Some of you have not. Some of you incorporate very similar personality traits to the fragmenting essence. Some do not. I will say Shynla and Ron incorporate many personality traits of the type of the fragmenting essence. Sophia does not. Yarr does. Fromasch does not. James does not. Elizabeth does. Michael and Lawrence do. It is dependent upon the fragmentation and the intent of the new essence. You incorporate many intents. Each developmental focus incorporates a singular intent of that focus. Essence incorporates an overview intent, which you also, within each developmental focus, or physical manifestation, or non-physical manifestation, incorporate. You also incorporate an individual intent of each focus or aspect. (Pause)

VICKI: So would intent, for example the draw that Ron feels toward Mr. Einstein, also be incorporated with an intent, that connection?

ELIAS: Partially. (Grinning) I will be acknowledging of you that you are moving into an area of awareness of a deeper understanding, for you are now incorporating questions to which it will become difficult to deliver accurate answers. As you widen, you may begin to understand many elements of reality without my words, for incorporating translation into language also involves distortion. Explaining to you these concepts always involves an element of distortion, for your language is limiting, and this is what you understand.

Aspects share the common intent of essence. They do not always share a common intent of focus. Within this particular example, you are partially correct in that both focuses were seeking an identification and alignment of knowing of self, a remembering of origin. Each has chosen different directions for remembering, but each has connected with the basic intent being the same. Within this example, I will illustrate that your intent is not your “life mission”. You do not have a life mission! Your intent is that which your personality has directed your energy to be focusing within a specific direction.

You may also incorporate a wider intent alongside of each individual focus. Some essences physically manifesting will choose to manifest in sequence as a book continuing a story, each developmental focus being a continuation of the previous. Some manifest randomly, with the intent of experiencing an individual subject and creating many developmental focuses around this subject, to be manifest in different ways for different experiences. Some will hop back and forth, sometimes incorporating a brief continuation, but generally experiencing each developmental focus singularly for different intents.

Within thought-focused essences you will find generally that they will be incorporating a “jumping” and not necessarily a sequential manifestation, for they occasionally manifest emotionally-focused, for experience. This does not fit into the pattern of the book. Therefore, they write no book.

Many emotionally-focused individuals do incorporate sequential manifestations; therefore carrying forth, so to speak, experiences of previous developmental focuses affecting present focus. You may think to yourselves that this may be a negative trait. In actuality, this allows these individuals an advantage of being continuously connected with other developmental focuses and aspects of themselves.

There are many things within corporeal existence which are very efficiently accomplished through thought-focused individuals, but they will also find some elements quite difficult to be experiencing or connecting with. There are thought-focused individuals who do not choose to experience some elements at all. I have expressed to you that you may experience as few as three developmental focuses, as per your choosing, or as many as you may count. It is your choice. If you are experiencing few, you are choosing also to not be experiencing some elements of physical existence. Many thought-focused individuals and essences choose this direction. (Pause)

Empathic; a sense which you each possess. Emotionally-focused individuals incorporate this inner sense much easier. Thought-focused individuals may incorporate, if choosing, this inner sense; and in practicing may become quite efficient! (Grinning at Ron) Others may not choose essentially to focus within this area. You each incorporate strengths, so to speak, in some areas more than others. This is not good or bad! Therefore, if you are not experiencing everything, do not be worried, or be losing faith, for not all individuals choose to be experiencing all things, not even emotionally-focused! (Grinning at Guin)

Emotionally-focused essences do choose more developmental focuses, more experiences. They are excited and stimulated by these emotional experiences. Thought-focused individuals become bored. (Grinning at Vicki) They are continually exerting all of their physical energy, stimulating themselves with a lack of emotional incorporation. Emotional incorporation is requiring of more expenditure of energy, which they often view to be a wastefulness of energy. Therefore, they do not bother. Therefore, as I have expressed once before, expecting each to be responding as the other is quite ludicrous, although you may each gain valuable information from each other and from noticing the incorporation of other essences, and how they are dealing with challenges and issues. (Pause, and then to Vicki) As you continue to focus with separations of things, you will continue to not understand aspects! (Laughter)

CATHY: So, can aspects be in the same physical focus we’re in? Can we have an aspect of a personality in the same physical focus we’re in?

ELIAS: Absolutely! You possess counterparts.

CATHY: Is Julie Andrews an aspect of my personality?

ELIAS: Within the direction that you are thinking, no; for you are thinking an essence personality, and separating. Within the whole, yes.

CATHY: Good! That explains it! (Elias is grinning, and we all laugh) VICKI: Well, Shynla and Ron would be aspect personalities, correct?

ELIAS: Correct; and you understand this no more than Shynla understands her question! (Elias is starting to laugh now)

VICKI: No, I don’t. (Pause) But I want to!

ELIAS: You are understanding more. I realize that within recent timing, my information to you has been limited, but the reason for this is that you are each moving and you are experiencing; and your experiences, as I began this evening, are what you base your corporeal existence upon. Your reality is based upon your experience. Each thought is an experience. Each emotion is an experience. Each sense that is affected within your existence, physically or psychically, are all experiences, and you are all learning from these experiences. You are moving into a position of understanding, where I may offer more information, but as of this moment, I would only confuse you more than you already are confused, for you have not quite experienced what I have offered already, although you are beginning.

VICKI: Well, I have another question. Does anybody else have a question?

GUIN: I do.

VICKI: Go ahead. I feel like I’ve been asking all the questions.

CATHY: (To Vicki) Stop it! (Elias looks at Ron expectantly)

RON: PI!

VICKI: (To Guin) Go ahead! (With complete exasperation)

GUIN: Everyone here is an aspect of each other, correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

GUIN: I get it, I think.

CATHY: Good! Tell me!

GUIN: Because we’re all one.

ELIAS: Correct.

GUIN: So we’d have to be aspects of each other.

ELIAS: Theoretically speaking!

GUIN: Well, we’re used to looking at the close connections ...

VICKI: The draws ...

GUIN: Right, as far as like ...

ELIAS: You are absolutely correct. I am being quite facetious, “speaking theoretically”, for Shynla, echoing her inner self. (Pause, during which Vicki starts rubbing her face and Elias starts laughing) And you are wishing of more information, and we are incorporating face-rubbing already!

VICKI: Recently, Ron and I had an experience where it felt like we traded experiences for a short period of time. Was that a using of the empathic sense? (She just won’t shut-up tonight!)

ELIAS: Correct. I have begun this evening expressing to you that you are each drawing to you information and experiences to be learning from, dealing specifically with challenges or issues that you are personally focusing upon presently; this being what you are focusing on, in issue, presently. (To Ron) Also, this being a desire of wishing to be incorporated, and taking a step closer to waiting essence. (Smiling) Ron’s intent is to be feeling the water first, and dipping toes, making quite sure that the water is safe. Empathically, this allows a knowing and a safety, which is a building of trust until he is (whispering) hearing more voices! (To Vicki) You are quite interested in experiencing these concepts and understanding these issues. Therefore, you have opened yourself, in trusting, to be allowing yourself the opportunity to be experiencing. (Pause) And may I be asking a question also this evening, of Shynla?

CATHY: Oh, of course! By all means! (With a “hint” of sarcasm)

ELIAS: I am serving to quench a curiosity!

CATHY: Are you now? (Laughing)

ELIAS: With all that you have drawn to yourself recently, and you continue to incorporate conflict, how much more do you believe you will draw to yourself before you are paying attention to yourself???

CATHY: Couldn’t be room for much more, could there be? (Laughing)

ELIAS: Ah, we could always focus on Oliver’s “cosmic boot”! There is always more to be gaining your attention! You, as all other individuals, are quite creative, and may be incorporating many kinds of probabilities to be gaining your own attention. I am only curious at how far each individual will step into their own bear traps before they are pulling back and listening to themselves without cutting off their foot! (Grinning) CATHY: I’m just practicing the art of procrastination a little bit more, that’s all.

ELIAS: Ah, another one! We will make a club; the procrastinating essence club; we will call you all “pecs”! (Grinning, and laughter)

VICKI: I have another question, if nobody else does, about this empathic sense. To go back to what we were talking about, at some other time, about affecting of an individual, in whatever way, through affecting the whole?

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: This would be incorporating the empathic sense quite a bit, would it not?

ELIAS: This is correct. You do not understand where you are going with this, but you are correct. I have offered this exercise to you, that you may illustrate to yourselves something that you will view as tangible, something you may understand and you may experience and you may see; an exercise affecting your inner senses and your outer senses at the same time, using your empathic sense. This is only a partial incorporation of this sense. It extends far beyond experiencing only what another physically-focused individual experiences.

You may use your empathic sense to be connecting with aspects of yourself which are affecting of yourself, and you may also be using this sense to be connecting with yourself. Each element, each molecule, each cell, each atom that you incorporate within your physical expression possesses consciousness. In this, it experiences. You may use your empathic sense to be connecting with the experience of your physical existence, if you are so choosing, or if you are needing to be affecting of a challenge within this area. (Pause) You may think for a moment. We will break, and I will return, and we will address also to Yarr.

BREAK 7:41 PM RESUME 8:32 PM

ELIAS: We continue. Now you may continue with your questions.

VICKI: Regarding the empathic sense, I would like to ask a quick question for Michael. He is expressing concern about his inability to use this sense. He does use it, for example, in this situation, does he not? ELIAS: Correct. Michael does incorporate this sense, but not to a tremendous degree. This is also why I was expressing the information that I gave you this evening about these inner senses and about you as individuals with your individual intents within physical focus, for I will not be wishing for any of you to be viewing a lack of incorporation of an element that I express to you as a failure; for if you choose not to be incorporating activating to any great degree any particular sense, it is not a failure. It is not that you do not possess the ability.

You may be trying to exercise a specific inner sense, and you may discover that you are not quite connecting with it. This may be that within your intent of this focus, a particular inner sense is not necessary to be incorporated to a great degree. You will, and do, incorporate all of your inner senses to some degree, whether or not you actually realize this within this physical focus. You automatically practice and use all of your inner senses continuously. You are only not aware continuously.

Michael will excel in conceptualization, which is why I have offered the book; for this is a greater strength, within his intent, within this manifestation. Within the element of thought-focus, the empathic sense may not be exercised to the extent that it may within an emotionally-focused individual. Some, as I have said, thought-focused individuals find this empathic sense to be advantageous to their understanding as they are widening. Ron incorporates this sense for a greater understanding, experientially, of information that others may take in intellectually. Elizabeth also incorporates this same ability; therefore enabling these two individuals to be connecting and understanding of information which is offered, and concepts that are put forth by me, which they may not necessarily connect through the written or spoken material.

I have expressed to you all, many times, that you will each receive and incorporate the information in your own way; this being the reason why, much time ago, in your terms, I was expressing of no concern of Ron’s supposed “exiting” of our sessions through consciousness, for the connection was still incorporated, and I was aware of this connection; this being an experiential connection through consciousness, which is your empathic sense.

You may develop different inner senses more than others, just as you may develop your outer sense of smell more than you develop your outer sense of tasting. This does not mean that one sense is working better, or that one sense is not working. It is only that you are noticing and recognizing and connecting with one sense more than another. Just as I have spoken to you of experiences that you draw to yourselves for information that you may understand and connect with, you also incorporate your inner senses in directions that you connect with the most efficiently for your understanding. It is advantageous to you to be connecting with your empathic sense, for this sense enables you a very broad spectrum of experience that you may be affecting of, and also may be affecting of you; but you do exercise this sense, whether you are noticing or whether you are realizing or not, just as you continually use your telepathic sense. You do not realize that you are using this sense, for you are limiting your concept of this sense to be thinking that you must be reading another individual’s mind and thoughts to be experiencing telepathy. This is incorrect.

You telepathically communicate to each other, and to all of your aspects, and to all essences, everywhere, continually. You are telepathically connecting with each other continually. This is your communication in regional area two. Without your telepathic ability, you would not be connecting within regional area two. Therefore, you are using your inner senses, always. You only do not realize, and you have not “fine-tuned” these senses to be consciously controlling them within waking consciousness. This is what you are practicing and learning.

VICKI: The exercise that you were referring to right before our break; were you referring to the mirror exercise?

ELIAS: I was referring to my expressing to you to be practicing your empathic sense and exercising this, which I gave to you as an exercise to be focusing upon, explaining to you that you may be focusing upon this empathic sense at any moment, in any situation, whether you are connecting with another individual ... or a tree!

VICKI: We tried the tree.

ELIAS: I am aware, and you were partially successful in this connecting effort. You may try again with this exercise, and focus empathically, and experience the tree. Be the tree. (To Ron) On your head! (Ron felt like he was upside-down during this exercise)

T0M: Elias, empathically in the mirror, if you’re just visualizing a different focus, you’re not quite touching all the way, are you?

ELIAS: Correct. This is a viewing. This is a remembering and a visualization. You may incorporate moving this viewing one step farther, so to speak, and connect empathically. Experience the focus that you view. (Pause)

VICKI: Why is it so difficult to hold that focus?

ELIAS: You are not practiced at this! You are very practiced at focusing singularly within this focus. It becomes easier as you practice. JIM: So the physical sensations that I’ve felt my entire life, basically, when I see a creature injured, am I, are those empathic feelings that I’m incorporating physically?

ELIAS: Partially. You partially connect empathically, just as you each connect empathically and telepathically all the time. You do not recognize and understand what you are, in actuality, doing. Therefore, you combine this with your own emotions and feelings. You may incorporate empathy, which is affecting of your own feelings within yourself; which, in actuality, is the larger portion of the physical expression that you experience, for this you may identify with more easily. You may, in actuality, empathically experience these animals; but one, you do not trust this; and two, you feel this.

JIM: That’s true. It’s different. It’s an incredible sensation. But just go with whatever comes up, and be trusting in that?

ELIAS: You may experience empathy, for another individual or creature, for whatever they may be experiencing. This is not to say that you are choosing to empathically experience what they are experiencing. If you are viewing a creature or an individual which you view to be suffering, you may feel quite sorry for this creature or individual. You may incorporate empathy for them, but you may not wish to be occupying their space, and being them; (pause) this being an element of your fear, and your lack of trust, and your isolation of self, which each of you holds. I will be quite willing to say to you that if you are viewing a disaster, and a broken body of another individual, you may be willing to be helpful, but you will not be willing to lie down in their space and be experiencing their trauma! This is empathic. (Pause)

JIM: To be helpful in that, does one need to be empathic to be helpful? Totally empathic?

ELIAS: One needs to trust. I will express to you that the expression of the empathic sense may not be as enduring as you view. In a sense, yes; you do incorporate the empathic sense in an affecting situation, in the respect in which you are thinking. In this, you may experience instantly, but also, in trusting, knowing there is no need to be holding the experience. Therefore, it may also be released instantaneously. (Pause)

JIM: That clears a lot. Thank you. (Pause)

GUIN: I have a couple questions about this empathic sense. You may have already answered this, but ... If you use this sense with another person, say, do you take away any physical or emotional senses that they have, while you’re experiencing this empathic sense of one of their experiences? ELIAS: It is depending upon your intent.

GUIN: Okay. (Pause) And about intent; when you manifest in a physical focus, you have an intent why you do this, correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

GUIN: And do you live your physical focus until you fulfill that intent and then you decide to leave physical focus, or can you change the intent in the middle of while you’re physically focused?

ELIAS: (Pause) You have chosen an intent before you have physically manifest. You may not serve out your intent while you are physically manifest within a particular developmental focus. Your focus is not dependent on the accomplishment of the intent. It will be the directing force. It is not an action; it is a motivation. Therefore you may never, within a particular developmental focus, accomplish a specific action or act which encapsulates your intent, but your intent is manifest daily, momently, throughout your focus, for it is your force behind your manifestation. It is your motivation.

You may also change your intent, if you are so wishing. This rarely occurs, for you have chosen an intent specifically, and each manifestation is so small of a focus. It is not necessary to be changing your intent in the midst of each developmental focus, for you may serve through with one intent and remanifest with a different intent.

GUIN: I’ll try to remember to keep that in perspective.

VICKI: When you speak of intent in this way, you are speaking of a different intent than the seer intent, for example?

ELIAS: Correct. You always, through all of your focuses, be they physically manifest or non-physically manifest, incorporate your seer intent. You also incorporate an individual intent of each focus.

VICKI: So probably, if we could figure out what that was, we might know a little bit more about who we are! (Laughter and agreement)

TOM: I think the whole group was thinking that! (More laughter)

ELIAS: (Grinning widely) And I will say to the whole group ... clue!

VICKI: Clue! So who you are would be probably the sum total of your intent and your experiences? Or something like that!

JERI: Sounds good, Vicki!

VICKI: Very textbook! (Laughing) ELIAS: Or what you desire. (Pause) You do not always incorporate physical manifestation of your desire. Therefore, your intent serves as your motivating force to be continuing to your desire. (Pause) If you are not trusting, you are blocking your desire. Therefore, you are struggling against your intent. (Long pause)

VICKI: Well, that’s silly! We should just all stop doing that!

ELIAS: Very good suggestion! And I will also give you an exercise for this week that you may be incorporating and thinking of, as you have almost all, and most probably all within near future, incorporated a new book. You may all take a lesson from this also: Name yourselves.

VICKI: By your intent.

ELIAS: Correct. View your intent, and give yourself a new name that suits you. This will be sounding much more simple of an exercise than viewing within a mirror, but I will be suggesting to you that you will view within your mirror much more easily than you will find your name! (Laughter) These are the instruments, along with individuals, that you draw to yourselves; written words, tones, melodies, dreams, visualizations. All these also you draw to yourselves for your understanding, and for your information, connecting with your issues. Remember: NO COINCIDENCES. NO ACCIDENTS.

(To Ron) And, your aspect is correct. The universe is not an accident; and although he was incorporating God as an individual being, the concept was correct: There is no playing dice with the universe! There are no accidents, even to incorporating written words! (Pause) Are you wishing more questions? (Pause)

GUIN: I have one more. It has to do with the noticing I’ve done lately regarding my sense of smell, and how it has been heightened recently, and I was wondering if that was a result of just widening, or now I question if it was just that, or from what you were speaking of this evening, having certain senses that work better than others.

ELIAS: If you were incorporating one sense working better than others, you would be noticing of this throughout your focus. You would be noticing that your hearing works less than your sight, or that your touch works more than your smell. To be noticing a change of a sense is an incorporation of widening, and trusting, and awareness. Be noticing, for it has something to tell you.

GUIN: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome. Before I am departing this evening, now you may incorporate your game, and then I will be leaving you. (Pause)

TOM: Well, anybody want to go first?

VICKI: I was going to ask Michael’s questions first. Michael would like to connect Marshuka with the country of New Zealand.

ELIAS: One point.

VICKI: And also to connect Marshuka with the fabric of linen.

ELIAS: Incorrect.

VICKI: Next, to connect Mobowah with the country of Africa.

ELIAS: Correct. One point.

TOM: I’d like to connect Mobowah with ebony.

ELIAS: In which category?

TOM: Wood.

ELIAS: Correct. One point.

TOM: And I would like to connect Minerva with pepper.

ELIAS: Close, in spicy. Incorrect. Try again.

TOM: Michael got my one question tonight, and I had three. Thanks.

ELIAS: Very good!

JERI: I wanted to ask if we could have a new category of minerals, or metals.

ELIAS: Acceptable.

JERI: I would like to connect gold, with whichever one we’re going to do, minerals or metals. (Group conversation about categories)

RON: Who are you going to connect it to?

JERI: Oh, who am I going to connect it to? I haven’t any idea! The one that I thought about earlier was Marshuka. When I thought of gold, I thought of Marshuka.

ELIAS: You are connecting gold with the essence of Marshuka? (Jeri nods) Incorrect. Focus upon the essences, for your answer is correct, and your essence is incorrect.

JERI: Well, perhaps connecting it then with Miranda. ELIAS: Incorrect.

JERI: Okay. Well, I’ll have to give it some thought, some focus.

TOM: I’ll have to take that one. I’ll have to connect it with Minerva.

ELIAS: Gold? (Tom nods) Correct. One point. (Group conversation)

JIM: In the category of insects, with the essence of Miranda, the bee, connected with the queen bee.

ELIAS: One point! (Group conversation) I will stop you one moment, as I will offer you an illustration of what we discuss always; connection and trust of self. This game is an exercise in connection and trust. You may use this game with all of your inner senses to be practicing. You may use your telepathic or empathic or conceptualization or visualization or any sense in connecting with the elements in categories. Within this game, you now all have incorporated sufficient time to be engaged with this game and the connections of this game and the trusting of yourselves and your impressions of this game, to be understanding that this game is an illustration to you of your life. Connect well. Trust yourself as much as you trust your impressions for the game. (Pause) Continue.

CATHY: I would like to connect the art of acting with Mikaki.

ELIAS: One point.

CATHY: And the God of Zeus with Marshuka. (Vicki stares at Cathy)

ELIAS: One point! (Vicki stares at Elias, in amazement)

GUIN: (Whispering to Cathy) I had the same thing.

ELIAS: (Very sarcastically and humorously) I am incorporating a faultiness of a sense of hearing, I am quite sure! Repeat, please!

GUIN: (Laughing) I said, I had the same thing.

ELIAS: I am quite sure I am still incorporating faultiness of this sense of Michael’s hearing! Sophia? This cannot be! I will be asking you all to be reminding me to be adjusting the volume and the sense of physical hearing when I am engaged in interaction with you, for I may be experiencing outside interference which is blocking of my sense of hearing, for I am quite sure that I was not hearing correctly! I am sure I was more hearing, “I could not get this!”

GUIN: I said that to myself! (Much laughter)

ELIAS: There are no secrets within essence! (Grinning at Guin, and then to Ron) It is not necessary to be expressing PI to Sophia, for I may efficiently eradicate this with Sophia myself! Very good!

GUIN: Thank you! (Laughter, and a pause)

VICKI: I would like to connect, in the connecting essences category, the essences of Sophia and Elizabeth with the animal of a deer.

ELIAS: One point.

VICKI: And I’ll go for the insect category, with Marshuka; a moth.

ELIAS: (Whispering to Ron) Insects. Mark this. (To Vicki) A moth?

VICKI: A moth.

ELIAS: One point! An insect, a crawling creature that Lawrence does not incorporate! No beetle? (Sarcastically; he’s on a roll tonight!)

VICKI: The beetle is coming! (Elias starts laughing)

RON: It’s in there! (Elias is still laughing) I’d like to connect the color of orange with the element of time.

ELIAS: This being an impression? (Ron nods) Incorrect! (Grinning)

RON: Okay ... millipede! (Much laughter)

ELIAS: (Still laughing) This was correct!

RON: How about air?

ELIAS: Air; partial. One point.

RON: It would be foggy air, then! (Laughter)

ELIAS: Clouded, or fog, you may incorporate. Correct.

RON: Okay, I’d also like to connect the color of orange with the city of London.

ELIAS: Correct. One point.

GUIN: I would like to add another category. I want to add roots.

ELIAS: And berries! (We all crack up)

GUIN: I’m sorry. What did you say?

ELIAS: And berries!

GUIN: Sure! All right! (Laughing)

ELIAS: Oh! We are in agreement! Shall we collaborate on this new category?

GUIN: Okay!

ELIAS: Acceptable!

RON: I wanted to add another category, too. I haven’t added one, I don’t think. How about spices?

VICKI: We have spices.

TOM: Yeah, we have spices. (Elias is watching Ron intently here)

RON: Do we? I thought we had herbs.

ELIAS: We will incorporate a dictionary for Ron in spices and herbs.

GUIN: They’re the same thing.

RON: Are they? Herbs and spices?

ELIAS: Correct.

RON: Really? Nutmeg is an herb? Okay fine! How about condiments?

TOM: Under what? Fabrics?

RON: I didn’t say condoms! (Laughter)

ELIAS: (Grinning) We will be at least making an effort to be incorporating natural elements!

VICKI: Catsup isn’t natural? (We’re getting ridiculous now!)

ELIAS: Only to Sophia! (We all crack up)

GUIN: How about coriander, for the herb connected with Minerva?

ELIAS: One point.

JERI: I don’t know if I’m allowed another question. (Conversation) I can, until I get them right? How about, in the new category of roots and berries, potato, with Miranda.

ELIAS: (Grinning, and starting to laugh) I will allow you a partial connection on this, as this connects with several developmental focuses that have been connected with the essences connected to this essence. Therefore, I will allow you one point, as a partial answer.

JERI: Thank you.

ELIAS: It is interesting to view your connecting at moments when you are connecting with other aspects, and not realizing what you are connecting to! (To Tom) Yes?

TOM: With all these other categories that we have acquired in our bulletin board of a game here,

ELIAS: The wall.

TOM: The wall, yeah. I’ve thought about that a million times, the wall. Can we have another question? Are we allowed to have one more question?

ELIAS: I will incorporate consideration of this request, for you are connecting quite well, and we would not be wishing our game to be concluding too quickly!

GUIN: Don’t worry! I’ll keep getting more categories!

ELIAS: I am quite assured! (Laughter)

TOM: I just want to play catch-up! I want to catch up! (Pause)

JIM: In the category of Twylah, in the category of art forms, I would like to connect cartoons.

ELIAS: Incorrect. (Pause) Differentiate between the essence and your essence.

JIM: I’m doing that again! I feel that now. I feel the difference.

ELIAS: Recognition is your beginning. (Pause) It is your point to be trusting. (Another pause)

GUIN: I would like to connect, in our new category of berries and roots, I would like to connect Mikaki with ginseng.

TOM: Oh, damn!

ELIAS: One point.

TOM: God damn it, that was my third question!

ELIAS: (To Cathy) Smile! (Grinning) You are appearing quite pretty this evening! (He is on a roll this evening!)

CATHY: Oh, brother! (Laughing) Thank you!

ELIAS: You are welcome! May I be effecting of flattery which will be helpful to your mood? (Pause) No. Very well. (Pause)

JERI: I have a question. I’m wondering if the two large flashes, the two flashes of large yellow that I saw recently, was of some significance, that I saw in the sky, just appearing.

ELIAS: This is manifestation for your visualization of essence, this being a recognition of energy manifest within color. You may also incorporate physical feeling of this same energy within future.

JERI: Thank you.

VICKI: I have another question. (Looking at Ron) I’m curious about this little machine that Olivia had in her dream.

RON: Oh. She’s just passed the buck! It was a machine. It was a very short dream remembrance, and all I remember is that the machine had something to do with keeping track of awarenesses.

ELIAS: (Grinning at Ron) And how appropriate for our site-maker! Be noticing of these types of dreams, for these are remembrances which I was expressing to you to be remembering, and although you do not believe that your are, you are! These elements will become clearer to you as your time passes. They will be unfolding, just as you have witnessed the unfolding of many probabilities and incidents recently which you were incorporating previous information of, but not connecting to or understanding. Now, you may be trusting of yourself in remembering these things, and these messages in dreams, and remembering that they are a remembrance, for they will become clear soon. Think of this with your name. There is a connection. (Pause) I will be departing for this evening.

GROUP: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome. (To Guin) Continue your noticing. (To Cathy) Leave your conflict! (To group) Be trusting of yourselves. (To Ron) Be welcoming of whispers! (To group) Good evening.

Elias departs at 9:38 PM
