ELIAS:  Good afternoon!

DAWN:  Hello!

MICHAEL:  Hello!

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  We meet again!

MICHAEL:  Yes, we do!

ELIAS:  And you may proceed this day, if you are so choosing.

MICHAEL:  Okay.  I’m gonna start off with some guesses or some ideas about families of consciousness for some people that I know.

ELIAS:  Very well.

MICHAEL:  And if you wouldn’t mind adding the essence name, if you can.  I’m going to start with my father, my biological father Rick, who I believe belongs to Ilda and is aligned with Sumafi. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Donald.

MICHAEL:  Cool.  Alright, let’s see if I do as well with my mom.  Tumold belonging, Borledim aligned. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Satra; S-A-T-R-A. (sä’tra)

MICHAEL:  Beautiful.  For my step-father; belonging to Gramada, aligned with Sumari. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Gris; G-R-I-S.

MICHAEL:  Okay, my brother Jacob; belonging to Sumafi, aligned with Ilda. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Alignment, Sumari.  Essence name, Blugh; B-L-U-G-H. (blue)

MICHAEL:  My next brother, Jonathan; belonging to Sumafi, aligned with Sumari. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Plotau; P-L-O-T-A-U. (plot-toe)

MICHAEL:  Next is my sister; belonging to Tumold, aligned with Sumari. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Donelle; D-O-N-E-L-L-E. (don-el’)

MICHAEL:  Okay.  Our friend Nisha, who I believe is belonging to Sumafi, aligned Sumari, and I’ve had an impression of a name — essence name, Tessa. (Pause)

ELIAS:  You are correct with essence families.  I express to you, essence name being that of Tesset. (tes-set’)

MICHAEL:  Tesset?

ELIAS:  T-E-S-S-E-T.

MICHAEL:  Three more to go.  My friend Metta, who I believe is belonging to Sumafi and aligned with Ilda. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Correct.  Essence name, Eve.

MICHAEL:  Could you repeat the essence name?

ELIAS:  Eve.

MICHAEL:  Eve?

ELIAS:  E-V-E.

MICHAEL:  Thank you.  Gary, a friend, who I believe is belonging to Vold and aligned with Sumari. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Belonging to Vold, aligned with Ilda.  Essence name, Squalloh; S-Q-U-A-L-L-O-H. (squal’low)

MICHAEL:  The last person ... I have a question about her being a fragment personality.  I’ve also received some families — belonging to Milumet and aligned with Borledim — and the name Dana. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Alignment, Zuli.  Essence name, Reede; R-E-E-D-E.

MICHAEL:  Alright, that’s it.  I didn’t do too bad.  Thank you.

DAWN:  Okay.  Hello, Elias.  My first question deals with the different jobs I’ve held.  A lot of them in a major way have been dealing with security, either of the company’s ideas or of money.  Could you give me some insight into that, please? (Pause)

ELIAS:  And you are inquiring as to your draw in this direction?

DAWN:  Yeah, I guess so. (Pause)

ELIAS:  Let me express to you that you create certain situations within your focus to be offering you certain reinforcements in areas that you hold difficulty in offering to yourself.

In this, we have spoken previously of issues that you hold in the area of self acceptance and your own trust of self, and in this, you also — within previous inquiries — have moved in the direction of inquiring as to interaction with other individuals and some situations that may be perceived as hurtful to yourself at certain times.

In this, what you have created also in your focus is to be offering yourself in certain manners expressions which you draw to yourself from outside to be offering you a reinforcement and validation of your worthiness of your own trust.  If other individuals may be trusting of you outside of you, you may also allow yourself to be trusting of yourself at times.

In this, you have chosen certain types of activities or engaged certain types of employment, that you may objectively offer yourself this type of reinforcement that you hold difficulty in offering merely to yourself, by yourself, so to speak.  But you also hold difficulties in these areas, for in choosing these types of expressions within these types of employments, you create conflict and distress within yourself, for you are not engaging your element of fun and your natural creativity within your own expressions.

It is what you may term to be, in a manner of speaking, a tradeoff.  You move in the direction of allowing yourself to engage in certain expressions, that it may offer you certain payoffs.  But in that process, you are also stifling certain elements of your own creativity, which creates elements of frustration and conflict.  I express to you that as you move more fully into the expression of offering this acceptance to self, you shall be looking less and less outside of self to be acquiring this type of validation.

I shall also presently be acknowledging to you, for I hold an awareness of the movement that you have created in this area within recent time framework, in that you have been moving in the direction of what you term to be exhibiting risks in physical focus, but trusting yourself in these movements and allowing yourself to be much more accepting of your own expressions and not intaking as much, so to speak, of the expressions of other individuals and incorporating them into your creations and allowing them to be influencing of your behaviors so very intensely as you have created previously.

You have allowed yourself to move much more into your own trust and your own expression regardless of the opinion of other individuals, and have offered yourself the validation that it matters not.  You may be creating of your own expression, and other individuals shall be accepting of this eventually, so to speak, and if they are not accepting of your expression, it matters not, for YOU shall be accepting and trusting of your expression, and this shall be what is creating of your joyfulness and lack of conflict.

DAWN:  Great!  Thanks.

MICHAEL:  Go, Dawn! (Laughing, and Elias chuckles)

I have a question regarding my own work, actually.  I wrote it down.  With all the positive change with my work lately, which I take to be my alignment with Gramada, I still have some physical pains that I feel are related to a misalignment with my Sumari or creative self.  What kind of probabilities can I tune into or what beliefs can I accept to make the physical symptoms subside, but still maintain my success at work?  I know I’ve asked a question real similar to that before. (Pause)

ELIAS:  I express to you that you offer yourself these particular types of manifestations, that you may be gaining your own attention, of which we have discussed previously.

In this, let me express to you that you may be addressing to this type of situation more efficiently if you are turning your attention within the now to the specific creations that you are engaging within the moment, for you create these physical responses in conjunction with certain behaviors that you are creating within specific moments: interactions with other individuals, areas of lack of acceptance of self within the moment, and what you term to be in physical focus insecurities that you may be experiencing in particular moments.

As you notice the physical expression, you may also turn your attention within that now to the surrounding exhibitions of behaviors, and you may be noticing your interaction with other individuals AND the areas that you are placing judgments upon yourself within those time frameworks, and as you begin to address to these areas, you shall also be creating a subsiding of the physical affectingness.

MICHAEL:  I think that my first impression along those lines, as a specific example, would be to ... at the morning job that I have, I really would like to pull away from that, and I feel that doing that would give me more comfort and confidence in my abilities.  A lot of my interaction there feels limited by the types of people that I work with.  Is this kind of what you’re meaning?

ELIAS:  Look to the limitations that you place upon yourself, but do not delude yourself or confuse yourself in incorporating the direction that the reason that you are limited is as a result of other individuals and how they are creating their reality or their interaction with you, for this places you in the position, so to speak, of assuming that other individuals are creating your reality for you — and they are not — or that you do not hold choices simply for the reason that other individuals are exercising their choices.  This also is incorrect.

Therefore, I express to you that in part you are correct that within this situation there are elements within your creativity that are being blocked, but this is not because of other individuals.  It is that you are blocking your own creativity in not holding the trust of self that you may be accomplishing regardless of which area you choose to be placing yourself within physically.

Now; I am not expressing to you that you need be continuing in this particular position of employ to be moving through this particular issue that you hold.  I also am expressing to you that it is unnecessary for you to move in the direction of assuming that you must be continuing to be interactive and placing yourself in a position of uncomfortableness to facilitate your movement through a particular situation or issue, for this is not the case.

I express to you that many individuals move in this type of direction, creating their behavior of martyrs, that they must be continuing in uncomfortable situations or they shall not be accomplishing in moving through their particular belief systems or issues.  I express to you that this is not necessarily the situation.  You may be moving through your issues quite efficiently without continuing to be creating uncomfortableness in your process.

Therefore, as you are aware, the choice is yours as to what you shall engage in these types of decisions, so to speak.  What I am expressing to you is to be noticing of the behavior that YOU employ in these situations as you engage interaction with these other individuals and how you are responsive to other individuals and how you are automatically placing judgments upon yourself in result of these interactions with other individuals.  Are you understanding?

MICHAEL:  I believe so.  To me it feels that ... I realize that the reason that I feel the way that I do is because of my response to other people’s actions; not necessarily that I don’t have a choice in those actions, but that I am perceiving their choices as my own.

ELIAS:  Let me also express to you, you are now offering yourself the opportunity to differentiate, to be noticing and understanding within yourself what other individuals create and what you create.

Other individuals create their reality.  They are not creating your reality and you are not creating theirs, and you are not responsible for all of the action which occurs in interaction with other individuals.  You are merely responsible for your own expressions and your own actions and behaviors.

In this, what I am expressing to you is to be noticing of those, not to be assuming responsibility for the entirety of situations which are created, for other individuals participate also and they are creating of their reality and you are creating of certain situations jointly, which does not place all of the responsibility of these creations upon you singularly.  Therefore, I am directing your attention in the manner that you may be noticing merely YOUR participation, and in that, also noticing your automatic responses within interactions of other individuals.  Is this clearer?

MICHAEL:  Yes.  I will be moving out of these areas of discomfort because those are related to my own stresses of the responsibilities I take on myself and my reactions to other people’s creations.

ELIAS:  I express to you that I have spoken previously with other individuals in relation to conflict and removing oneself from the interaction of conflict.  Within your present societies, you look to this type of action as a retreat or running away, and you label this action with much judgment — that it is bad, that you must be standing, holding firm, and facing forwardly all situations, and never engaging retreat.  I express to you that this is a very strong aspect of belief systems.

I express to you also that within the framework of creating conflict or participating within conflict, if you are choosing to not be participating within the action of conflict any longer, you may engage or employ any action that you choose to be engaging that shall be eliminating of your conflict, and it matters not.  There is no judgment to be placed upon your choice of action that you engage to be eliminating of your conflict.  This is not the point.  The point is to be eliminating the conflict.

MICHAEL:  I understand that very well.  I believe that removing myself from the situation, even though I feel or have felt that it would be running away, actually would be a much stronger position for me, spiritually and mentally and physically.

ELIAS:  I express to you, as I have stated, this is an aspect of belief systems in duplicity, that within physical focus you label this type of action as a lack of strength, or weakness, and you view this type of action as bad or that you are not addressing to a particular situation if you are removing yourself from the situation physically.

I express to you that this is not necessarily the situation which is being created, for you may remove yourself from the participation in conflict and you may also be addressing to those very issues which create that conflict within you and create the responses within you.

Many times, as you continue within the conflict, what you are creating in actuality is merely a distraction to yourself, which creates the situation that you do NOT address to the issues and the belief systems, for you are very busy being distracted within the conflict, which occupies your attention.  In this, you do not pay attention to your inner communications and your movement through these situations and issues, whereas many times in removing yourself from the interaction of conflict, you may allow yourself to view more clearly your choices which are available to you, for you are not so very distracted by the actual action of the conflict itself.

MICHAEL:  I follow you, and thank you.

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  You are quite welcome.

MICHAEL:  I’ve been wanting to get rid of that one for a while! (Elias chuckles)

DAWN:  Okay, this is sort of a general and a specific question.  Lately I’ve been very sensitive and very disappointed that society has a lot of negative views about health and things in the world that can harm you, and specifically I tend to think about the cluster of cancer my family had in the last couple of years.  I have these old thoughts that say I should be worried about it and I should go to the doctor, but I say no, I don’t have to have what they had.  Could you explain to me how I should approach this?

ELIAS:  Yes.  I express to you that you are correct.  In this, you are not required to be aligning with the mass belief systems, and you individually are allowing yourself to be moving away, in a manner of speaking, of this type of creation that has been accepted within your family creations.

In this, you have offered yourself information that allows you to be recognizing that there are no absolutes, and that although you have chosen the family that you participate with in relationship, this is not to be say that you are locked, so to speak, into creating the same type of expressions that they have chosen to be creating.  As individuals do not necessarily allow themselves information, they also more easily move in the direction of aligning with expressed and mass belief systems, but as you offer yourself more information, you also offer yourself more of a wider awareness, and in this, you recognize that it is unnecessary for you to participate in this type of a creation.

Now; I also express to you a cautioning, for I express not to be moving yourself into the direction of not participating in certain actions simply for the reason that you express that they are not good.  If you are placing a judgment upon the creations that other individuals have engaged and if you are placing a judgment upon your medical profession, you may be lending energy to the very expression that you choose not to be lending energy to and its creation.

For the point is not to be expressing, “I am not trustful of these physicians,” and the point is not also to be expressing, “I shall not be creating this, for I choose not to be, for it is bad and I wish not to be engaging this type of action.”

If you are continuing to hold a judgment, your concentration upon that very issue lends energy to your creation of it.

Therefore, I express to you that you may be moving in the direction of recognizing that you may acknowledge to yourself that it is unnecessary to be creating of certain expressions merely for the reason that it is assumed that it shall be created in relation to genetic factors, but allow yourself also the acceptance that these are merely expressions that other individuals have chosen for their individual reasons and experience, and you may be choosing not to be creating of these expressions, but it is not an issue.  It matters not.  It is merely a choice for experience, and as you allow yourself to relax and loose the hold upon fear that this might be created, this is much more efficient in facilitating not lending energy to its creation.  Are you understanding?

DAWN:  Yes, I think so.  So by me holding a fear about whether I do one thing or I do another, then that would be lending energy in a way that I don’t mean to be?

ELIAS:  In holding the fear, you move in the direction of expressing, “I will not create this.  I refuse.”  This is an expression of your fear — and also of your judgment in lack of acceptance of any particular element of reality — and in that type of expression, you are lending energy to the creation of the very expression that you wish to avoid.

DAWN:  So then the goal would be to deal with those issues and accept them merely as choices.

ELIAS:  Correct, and recognize that you need not hold fearfulness in this area.  These are merely choices, and it matters not, and as you move yourself genuinely into that expression, you discontinue lending energy to the creation that you wish not to be creating.

DAWN:  Okay, thanks.

ELIAS:  You are welcome.

MICHAEL:  I have a question regarding my friend Patricia.  We’re best friends, and I was wondering if we were counterparts.  I feel like this is the case.  We always are very synchronous in our creations, and constantly bump our ideas off of each other.  I feel like we’ve worked with each other in different lives, and she had a question in mind.  She’s curious about ... is this our last incarnation, or do we still have more in store? (Pause)

ELIAS:  Final focus, you are correct; and I may express to you also, yes, you are correct in counterpart action.

MICHAEL:  Thank you.

ELIAS:  You are welcome.

MICHAEL:  Now I’m curious about Dawn.  Is this her final focus as well?

ELIAS:  Yes.

DAWN:  My turn?

MICHAEL:  Yep.

DAWN:  More and more lately, I have found myself in a state that I call either neutral or unmotivated, and the way that I’ve understood this is that these are times when I’m absorbing changes, and I want to know if this is what’s going on, and if following the energy of not really doing much or scheduling is what I should be doing.

ELIAS:  I express to you that you are correct in this expression of a temporary lack of motivation as the outward expression or objective expression of subjective movement which is occurring presently, and therefore you are creating your respite temporarily within this present now and you are experiencing a lack of motivation to be moving in particular directions.

You may be allowing yourself this expression, offering yourself permission to be within this expression and not placing a judgment upon this, for it is temporary.

This is not to say that you may not engage any action at all or that you must be dormant, so to speak, but that you not be placing judgment upon yourself within this present now if you are choosing not to be moving in particular directions objectively, for as I have stated, this is temporary.  It is merely a responsiveness objectively to movements that you are creating subjectively.

DAWN:  So if I’m trying to make a decision about a course of action, then I should be able to have some feeling about a decision once that period passes?

ELIAS:  I express to you that in engaging difficulty within your choices presently, my suggestion to you is to not be pushing with yourself, but allow yourself the time framework, knowing that there is no urgency that is occurring that you must be addressing to immediately and that you may allow yourself a time framework, and as you engage this action, you shall also relax and naturally allow yourself to be engaging your intuition and listening to your inner voice, which shall offer you the most beneficial response.

DAWN:  That’s what I was hoping it was. (Elias chuckles)

MICHAEL:  Sounds like I need to do a little bit more sleeping myself!  Interesting to see how we have different ways of relaxing, whereas I might do one thing and she does something totally different, but the effect can be real similar.  It’s kind of neat.

ELIAS:  You each choose different expressions within your creations, and this is the quality of your uniqueness!

MICHAEL:  I have a question regarding some very vivid imagery I had about six or seven months ago when I was leaving the job I was at.  The imagery was of a man with a sword, and he was on a journey very similar to mine, sort of a quest for well-being, and I felt like his name had a “D” in it, but I’m not sure.  I’m asking if this warrior imagery is actually simply imagery, or is it a vision or a connection with an aspect?  Because it was so powerful and so motivational, and I felt like as a result of it, we got into our new apartment and my business improved.  It just had a lot of power behind it.

ELIAS:  This is an expression of a connection that you have allowed yourself objectively in receiving energy from another focus that you hold. (Pause)

MICHAEL:  Could you tell me a name? (Pause)

ELIAS:  This individual within this focus holds the physical naming of Daniel.

MICHAEL:  This would be someone within a different time framework, but sort of aligned with the same or a similar purpose as me?

ELIAS:  Correct.  In this, that particular focus lends energy to you within this present now in offering helpfulness to you, and you draw upon that energy, for there are very many similarities in your expressions within your individual focuses.

You hold objectively very different time frameworks and therefore differences within your societies and your objective creations as to what you may term lifestyle, but inwardly, how you view yourselves and how you interact with other individuals, with yourselves, with your world, is very similar.  Therefore, this individual also holds many of the same fears that you hold within this focus.

In this, there is an identification of great similarities, which allows you an ease to draw upon this energy and allows that individual an ease to draw upon your energy, and as you exchange energy, you benefit each other in each of your movements.

MICHAEL:  It was definitely a good energy exchange, and I felt like we both benefited.  Is it beneficial to do this more frequently, to connect with other focuses, especially in less traumatic environments and other less traumatic situations?

ELIAS:  I express to you that many times it is beneficial to be connecting with other focuses of your essence, for this offers you more information and what you term to be insight into yourself and  your creations.  It allows you an expansiveness in your awareness of yourself in relation to essence, and it may also be helpful to you in that you may be recognizing the energy that you access from other focuses, that you also lend to other focuses, and that energy which is being lent to you by other focuses of essence.

And in this many times, as you increase your objective awareness as to this energy exchange which occurs between focuses, you may reconfigure the energy which is lent to you through certain focuses and you may incorporate it into your focus more efficiently, for at times energy is lent to you by other focuses which hold very similar belief systems and experiences, and you may automatically merely assume this energy in the expression that it is being offered and not reconfigure it.  In this, it may emphasize your own experiences and intensify them, many of which you may find uncomfortable.  Therefore, as you allow yourself to be connecting with these other focuses and recognizing their experiences, you may also be recognizing that you draw upon this energy to be enhancing your own experiences, and once holding that information, you may be reconfiguring the energy to be more beneficial and less conflicting.  Are you understanding?

MICHAEL:  Yes, I am.  Thank you.

ELIAS:  You are quite welcome.

MICHAEL:  One technical question: Is Daniel an aspect of Delal, me?  Or is it another essence?

ELIAS:  It is a focus of your essence, yes.

MICHAEL:  Great.  Thank you very much.

ELIAS:  You are very welcome.

DAWN:  This seems like maybe a more light-hearted question.  Michael laughed at me when he saw that I had written it down.  Lately, the major themes of my dreams have been bathrooms, including the flushing of muck, and there’s also been classrooms, and sometimes dreams with both.  Could you give me some guidance on these themes?

MICHAEL:  Inflows and outflows! (Laughing, and Elias chuckles)

ELIAS:  I express to you that the imagery you are presenting to yourself in these dream interactions is that you are recognizing presently certain elements of your focus and your expressions that you no longer deem necessary.  Therefore, you may be eliminating of certain behaviors that you have incorporated previously, and in this, you also incorporate your imagery of classrooms, for you are allowing yourself to be assimilating information more fully and acquiring information that you may be applying to yourself individually.  This offers you more comprehensiveness, so to speak, in your viewing of yourself and your own creations.

In this, as you offer yourself this information, you also view more and more areas that are unnecessary to be continuing within your expressions, and in this, you image this as the elimination of waste, the discard of waste, for you view these expressions now to be a waste of energy.  It is, in your assessment presently, a waste of energy to be assuming responsibility for other individuals.  It is a waste of energy to be creating the expression of guilt or judgment upon self in relation to your expression with other individuals.

Therefore, in beginning to view these elements of what you term to be wasted energy — worry — you begin to recognize that you may be eliminating of this, and you quite creatively engage the imagery of efficient discard of waste!

DAWN:  Okay, that’s revealing! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha!  Quite creative, I express to you, and very efficient!  HA HA!

DAWN:  Michael mocks my efficiency!

MICHAEL:  Only because I envy it!

DAWN:  Thank you.

ELIAS:  You are quite welcome.

MICHAEL:  I have a question about my sister, Eliana, who was born with physical and mental disabilities.  Sometimes she can be a very large challenge, especially for my family, but other times she reminds us of how much of a gift life is.  I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about her manifestation in our family, and some other reasons for her being here.

ELIAS:  I express to you that this individual creates a choice of focus quite purposefully for her own benefit in her own value fulfillment in experiencing this type of manifestation, but also lends energy quite efficiently in challenging those individuals that she is interactive with.

In this, you each are presented with the challenge of acceptance, and within this time framework, more so.  It is in alignment with this shift in consciousness and offers the opportunity for all individuals that are engaged with her to be recognizing their opportunity to be accepting of self AND accepting of other individuals’ expressions.

Now; notice that I am expressing that the expression offered is to be accepting of self, for much of the expression which is projected outwardly by this individual is an opportunity for each of you to view certain aspects of mirror action that you create yourselves in different expressions objectively, but in like manner.

MICHAEL:  Hmm.  Very interesting.

ELIAS:  Therefore, as I have stated, the choice of manifestation of this individual is beneficial to all of you — and within consciousness — in the area of acceptance and allowing mirror images for challenges to be addressed to, and is also simultaneously quite efficient and beneficial in the area of her own value fulfillment, for there is an element of acceptance of other individuals that is presented to her individually as a great challenge, for there is an element of impatience also that is experienced within her as to the expressions of all of you.

MICHAEL:  That’s true. (Elias chuckles)  Very interesting.  It’s interesting that I don’t relate to her as well, but then at other times, I really do.  When she had back surgery a year or so ago, it was one of the few times I was moved very, very strongly emotionally to tears of really strong worry.  That was a very interesting time.

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  Ah, and you may hand this worry to your partner, and she may be flushing it! (Much laughter)  Ha ha ha ha!

DAWN:  Good one!

MICHAEL:  Alright!

Vic’s note:  This cracked me up, Dawn!  Coincidentally, toilets and bathrooms have been appearing as dream and waking imagery for many folks recently.  Ain’t that interesting!

DAWN:  Lately I’ve seemed to pick up what something I read on a list said was mass consciousness, things that cause me stress or worry that I really didn’t think belonged to me.  Can you give me some guidance on how to process these?

ELIAS:  Let me express to you that you hold the orientation of soft.  In this, you also present yourself with many challenges in the area of relationship, and you also are responsive to situations and mass events quite in alignment with the orientation that you have chosen within this focus.

I express to you that you may be inquiring of Michael, for I have offered explanation of this particular area of expression and the reasons as to why individuals are creating of these types of expressions and why you are so very affected.  In this, I shall express also that you, Delal, are of the orientation of common.

Now; I have expressed previously that if you are engaging relationship with an individual that is not of the same orientation of yourself, you shall engage conflict and difficulties.

But as you avail yourselves of information which has been offered in explanation of these orientations and this wave in consciousness which is occurring presently addressing to this belief system of sexuality, I wish to be expressing to you not to be allowing yourselves to move into the area of great questioning as to your choice to be engaging of relationship in the manner of partnership in the fashion that you have chosen, for within this information, I am not expressing that it is not possible to be accomplishing this type of relationship, merely that temporarily — which may vary within different individuals — it may be quite challenging, for there are many areas in which you speak different languages.

In this, you may acquire helpfulness if you are allowing yourself to be availing yourself of the information which I have already presented in this area, for it may be offering you much more insight into your own expressions and your own understanding of your expressions and your responsiveness to yourself and to your world.

DAWN:  Okay, I’ll do that.

MICHAEL:  Do we have time for another question?

ELIAS:  You may engage one more question, and I shall disengage this day.

MICHAEL:  Recently I’ve gotten in contact with a lot of friends from high school that I haven’t spoken to in years, and I was wondering if the reappearance of them all now is an expression of comfort or familiarity to help me get through a lot of the changes, because by being familiar with them, I feel that I help myself change through a recognition of the differences in ourselves over time.

ELIAS:  Very good!  I am acknowledging of your noticing and your accuracy in your interpretation of this situation that you have presented to yourself, and I express to you that you may continue within your noticing of differences and similarities and this may be quite helpful to you in offering you, in one respect, your element of comfort in familiarity, but also, in another respect, a new excitement in your recognition of movements and differences.

MICHAEL:  Thank you very much.

ELIAS:  You are quite welcome.

MICHAEL:  A plumber is on the way to fix our toilet, so we’re going to have a lot of things to flush with!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha!  And I shall be quite encouraging of you within this objective imagery!  Ha ha ha!

To you both this day, I offer great encouragement and a lending of much energy, and I anticipate our next meeting.

MICHAEL:  We do too, tomorrow!

ELIAS:  In which we shall continue!

MICHAEL:  Thank you.

DAWN:  Thank you.

ELIAS:  I express to you each a very affectionate au revoir.

Elias departs at 3:33 PM.

FOOTNOTES:

(1)  I have removed the word “situations” from the following phrase:  “... knowing that there is no urgency that is occurring that you must be addressing to situations immediately and that you may allow yourself a time framework ...”  Much banging on the head from Elias on this one, strangely enough!
