"Automatic Responses in Judgment"
Thursday, April 4, 2002 (Private/Phone)
Participants: Mary (Michael) and a new participant, Tracy (Kalum)
Elias arrives at 12:09 AM. (Arrival time is 21 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
TRACY: Hi, Elias! Greetings! We finally speak voice-to-voice in this focus.
ELIAS: Ha ha! Welcome!
TRACY: Thank you. I have some questions written down for you.
ELIAS: Very well.
TRACY: Can you tell me my essence family, my essence name, and orientation?
ELIAS: Essence name, Kalum, K-A-L-U-M (KAH lum). And your impression as to your essence families and orientation?
TRACY: I feel very Vold! And my orientation? I'm wondering if I recently exchanged it. I would say intermediate or soft.
ELIAS: I may express to you, essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Vold - and this is the reason that you feel very Vold. (Laughs) And I may identify orientation, soft, and express to you no, you have not altered your orientation in this focus.
TRACY: When I was meditating I asked my inner voice for my essence name and I was told Meecham. How does this fit in?
ELIAS: What you have offered to yourself is a manifestation name, a focus name. Let me also express to you, an essence name is not actually a name. It is a translation of a tone of the entirety of your focuses in this dimension, and it is not what you may interpret as a complete translation for it encompasses the tone that is associated with your essence in relation to its participation in this dimension.
TRACY: I have a few more essence name and essence family questions. For my partner Matthew? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Liam, L-I-A-M (LEE um). And your impression?
TRACY: Of his family?
TRACY: I don't believe I've done my homework well enough to have an impression of the different families.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! Very well.
TRACY: For my friend, William?
ELIAS: Are you wishing this information of your partner?
TRACY: Oh, I'm sorry, yes. His essence family?
ELIAS: Essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Gramada; orientation, common.
TRACY: And for my friend, William? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Brandysh, B-R-A-N-D-Y-S-H (BRAN dish). Essence family, Sumari; alignment, Zuli; orientation, common.
TRACY: And for my friend, Nahoko? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Yoni, Y-O-N-I (YOH nee). Essence family, Borledim; alignment, Milumet; orientation, common.
TRACY: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
TRACY: For my mom, Helen? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Broadi, B-R-O-A-D-I (BRO dee). Essence family, Tumold; alignment, Ilda; orientation, common.
TRACY: And for my dad, Thaddeus? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Thai, T-H-A-I (TIE). Essence family, Gramada; alignment, Vold; orientation, common.
TRACY: Thank you. And can you tell me the number of focuses I've had within this dimension on Earth?
ELIAS: Total numbering of focuses, 614.
TRACY: I'm not sure that I understand the phrase "focuses easily accessed in tone." Does that mean we have a common thread of consciousness to focuses actually lived and not sort of inserted? I have this idea that 11/12 of us get thrown into the soup and only a small part of us merges with the new focus. Of course, all this is happening now.
ELIAS: Within the manifestations of focuses of attention within different time frameworks, essences manifest more than one attention in each time framework.
Now; each attention generates its own unique expression of tone, and within different time frameworks some of these focuses of attention generate a very similar expression of tone and therefore they are more easily accessible to each other objectively in the allowance of yourselves to be viewing or experiencing another focus of attention of your essence. They are all you; therefore they are all accessible, but some generate a more closely expressed tone than others and therefore those are objectively more easily accessible to you.
TRACY: I think I understand. Could you tell me more about my individual intent in this focus?
ELIAS: And what is your assessment of your intent?
TRACY: I would say to express the truth as I see it.
ELIAS: That may be an avenue which you generate now, but in allowing yourself to view the entirety of this manifestation in all of its stages so to speak, incorporating a recognition of your expressions as a small one also, what do you assess is the theme or general direction that has been expressed throughout your focus?
TRACY: Expansion of consciousness?
ELIAS: I may say to you, this is an action that you ALL incorporate. (Chuckles) This is a natural movement of consciousness. Each individual expresses their own individual unique theme, so to speak.
Now; this theme may be identified by allowing yourself to examine your experiences throughout the entirety of your focus. For in this, allow yourself to view your movement and your experiences. You choose many different directions to be more specifically generating avenues of your intent, but the intent itself is a general direction which allows you to explore a subject matter, so to speak, within one focus of attention, and in that general theme of experiences you create more specific avenues throughout your focus of exploring that general theme, so to speak.
In this, it is significant that you allow yourself this examination, for it offers you much more information in becoming more familiar with yourself, which in actuality is quite helpful in generating a relationship with yourself. For, it may be much more challenging to create a relationship with yourself if you do not know yourself.
Therefore, I am quite encouraging of all individuals to attempt to offer themselves this information first, and if they are so choosing subsequently, I may validate or clarify more specifically the action of their individual intent. In this, I encourage you also to allow yourself this type of investigation of yourself.
I encourage individuals in this manner quite purposefully. For I may offer information to you each, but without your allowance of yourself to be experiencing what I offer to you in information and concept, you do not necessarily genuinely assimilate the information. For what offers you a reality of information, and translates into a reality within your perception, is experience. Without the expression of experience, information remains merely conceptual.
TRACY: Understood. So I have a homework assignment!
ELIAS: Ah! Very well! Ha ha ha ha!
TRACY: I've been observant of your suggestion to notice the communication of strong emotions to my essence, and there were two events recently that I've tried to do that with.
One was three men in a women's bathroom that were acting very male, trying to aggressively interact with the women in there. From their comments I suspected that they had never experienced a women's bathroom before, at least in that focus. (Laughing) I wanted to call security but then I decided not to since they were enjoying themselves and vocally appreciative that this was a better place than where they usually found themselves, even though I was a bit uncomfortable with them in there. I thought to call security but then I decided not to, that they weren't really causing any harm. Can you comment on that?
ELIAS: Now; express to myself first of all - and we shall examine this experience - what was your emotional signal? Identify the feeling that you generated, for this is the initial signal.
TRACY: I think annoyance, in that they weren't in keeping with the spirit of the place, somehow that they didn't belong, that I was invalidating them.
ELIAS: Very well. You identify that you are expressing the signal of annoyance.
Now; in this, as you turn your attention to yourself, recognize the signal, allow yourself to identify clearly the term that defines that signal, and once you have identified the signal allow yourself to question what generates that particular signal. What are you communicating to yourself in that moment of what YOU are generating within self, and what is influencing in your beliefs that creates the outward expression and is affecting of your perception? This is the method, so to speak, to be discovering what the message is or the communication of the emotion.
Now; once identifying the signal of annoyance, the manner in which you allow yourself to receive the message or the communication is to turn your attention away from the outside expression or the other individuals and move your attention to yourself to allow yourself to view what has influenced this expression.
In this, you are communicating to yourself in that moment that you are expressing an influence of your belief concerning rules, and you are also generating an influence of another belief associated with exposure and violation of space, and this generates a signal of annoyance.
Now; as you discontinue holding your attention upon the other individuals and what their choice is or what they are displaying in behavior, you may allow yourself to recognize what YOU are associating with in relation to beliefs and how that is influencing your perception. Are you understanding?
TRACY: I'm going to have to review it, but yes, basically.
ELIAS: Therefore, the influencing beliefs which you are communicating to yourself an identification of are that of exposure, violation of individual space, and what?
TRACY: You had said rules.
TRACY: Thank you. Can you tell me more about the focuses I've shared with my current partner, Matthew? I've been told about a focus in France where we have five children, and I seem to have a soft spot in my soul for him, meaning much unconditional love. Do you have any comments?
ELIAS: I may validate that you are correct, you do incorporate this focus in France, and I may express to you that you also participate in many focuses of attention together. Therefore, the expression of energy that you each generate is very familiar to you both.
TRACY: Thank you. Can you offer some general advice or comments to me?
ELIAS: In what capacity?
TRACY: I'm letting you speak freely, or allowing you to speak freely to me.
ELIAS: And in this, what direction are you interested in?
TRACY: Well, let's see. I'm about to embark on a cross-country journey, and perhaps along those lines.
ELIAS: And your concern in relation to this movement?
TRACY: No concerns. (Laughs) Looking forward to it!
ELIAS: And in this, shall you be allowing yourself to incorporate fun in this adventure? (Pause) Respond.
TRACY: I was wondering if you had any more comments.
I've been trying to remember my dreams and write them down, and I had a disturbing dream where an innocent-looking but sinister five-year-old girl on a bus had a gun, and it ended in Seattle. Can you perhaps help me to interpret what I was offering to myself with this dream?
ELIAS: Very well. Offer your impression.
TRACY: It stumps me, I have to say. Perhaps the violence in our society at a very young age, something along those lines?
ELIAS: I may express to you, within this dream imagery you are presenting to yourself communication in several expressions. One, you are generating imagery in the form of a small one to offer yourself information that indeed every individual creates their reality regardless of age. Even small ones, contrary to mass beliefs, generate their choices and create their reality themselves.
This, as you offer that type of information to yourself, you also express information to yourself concerning your own creation of your reality and of choices, but you are also offering yourself this dream imagery to identify within yourself some aspects of fear that you incorporate in relation to your world and your association with your world not entirely being a safe place, so to speak, and that there is potential for harmfulness in relation to other individuals.
Now; this is significant in relation to your expression concerning you creating all of your reality. For if you are creating all of your reality, no other individual may be creating any aspect of your reality for you. Therefore, the only expression of harmfulness that may occur within your reality is what YOU create and generate or allow.
TRACY: And that must be why she did not harm me in the dream.
TRACY: I have another strong emotional scenario that I'd like to, I guess, discuss with you. This was in a bar with a pool table, where I had put my name in the queue in the form of quarters and things became very chaotic. No one was respecting the line; whoever rushed in to put their quarters in the slot got to play next. They had even used my quarters for their game. It seemed very aggressive, very pushy. It didn't seem very fair or allowing, and I tried to object but was ineffective.
ELIAS: And in this, identify the signal.
TRACY: It's similar to the other one. I guess I was annoyed. I had feelings of, I guess, unfairness. It even seemed to be for me a metaphor for the unrest in the Middle East situation.
ELIAS: And I may express to you, in turning your attention to yourself, you may recognize your response in relation to other individuals. In this, your communication to yourself in this agitation was concerning not allowing yourself the freedom to express yourself but rather allowing the expressions of other individuals to dictate to you your choices, allowing the expressions and choices of other individuals to deny your choices. And in this, you discount yourself and you generate this agitation, not actually in association with the choices of the other individuals but in recognizing that you are not allowing yourself a free expression in the moment, and this is what you are translating in your identification of unfairness.
TRACY: I'll have to review that, too.
ELIAS: This is an expression, my friend, in which it matters not what the other individuals are creating or choosing; but you recognize an unfairness in that you are allowing the other individuals to dictate to you, and therefore you discontinue directing of yourself and do not allow your free expression.
TRACY: I see. (Big sigh)
Recently I've had the idea that I'd like to start some type of, I don't know, a retreat of sorts, although I don't envision it as a place where much retreating will be going on. I have this idea of a land with accommodations, and I'm looking to collaborate with others on realizing this dream of mine. Can you comment on this?
ELIAS: I may express to you that this may be an interesting exercise in your movement in the allowance of your choices and your expression of validation of yourself, and the challenge in trusting yourself and your ability to actually create the manifestation of this expression - acknowledging yourself that you do actually hold the ability to be creating this manifestation but challenging yourself in trust of yourself and how easily or not you may be actually generating it.
TRACY: Sounds like an adventure! (Elias laughs)
So I guess I wanted to open the floor, so to speak, to you to comment in general on my movement, let's say since the beginning of the year, and perhaps if you have any, I don't know, comments, suggestions, advice.
ELIAS: Very well. I shall be acknowledging of you in your movement within this time framework, and express to you a validation that you are offering yourself a volume of information in which you are becoming more familiar with yourself and not merely your movement but also your choices.
I may also express to you the suggestion that you pay attention to self and allow yourself to notice your automatic responses. For I may express to you a recognition of energy expressions that you generate, in which often you express automatic responses in situations which do not necessarily generate tremendous conflict but do limit your choices, and in a manner of speaking this action that you incorporate in relation to automatic responses in conjunction with other individuals is a type of snap, so to speak, within your energy, in which you quickly generate an automatic judgment, which may actually be avoided in allowing yourself to be more clearly noticing these automatic responses in relation to other individuals.
Now; I am not expressing to you that in these moments that you generate these automatic responses and create this snap energy expression in judgment that this necessary creates an expression of conflict, but I am recognizing within your energy expression that you do generate this type of action quite often and it is somewhat concerning temporarily within yourself...
TRACY: (Laughing) More homework!
ELIAS: ...and that this also merely reinforces some expressions of discounting of yourself, which may be addressed to in allowing yourself to be paying attention to these automatic responses.
This may also offer you, my friend, much more of an opportunity to be objectively aware of your expressions and therefore allow you to familiarize yourself with yourself and offer yourself much more of a freedom in your choices.
TRACY: (Sighs) Is there a judgment that I have that is a "pet" judgment? Or one that is - I don't know - one that I come back to again and again in relation to others?
ELIAS: Yes. I may express to you that you quite frequently generate an automatic response in relation to behaviors of other individuals and your belief concerning what is appropriate and what is not appropriate in any particular scenario. Therefore, the expression of appropriateness is quite consistently expressed within your automatic responses.
Now; as I have stated, this does not generate a tremendous expression of conflict in your energy expression, but it does generate an expression of annoyance within you, and if you are allowing yourself, you may quite easily be noticing of this type of automatic response. You generate this perception in relation to the influences of your beliefs and your preferences, and confusing your preferences with what YOU choose to generate and your opinion with an absoluteness in relation to beliefs concerning appropriateness.
You may continue, my friend, to express a freedom in your preferences and you may incorporate your opinion in relation to your preferences, but also allow yourself the recognition that these are not absolutes, and what you generate in preferences and philosophies are your expressions and your choices, and they are not better or worse or right or wrong in relation to differences that other individuals may express.
Now; I may also express to you another identification of a consistently expressed influence of beliefs that you express, and that is concerning comparison, which may also be beneficial to you in allowing yourself to examine the often-ness of this expression of comparison within yourself, not merely in relation to other individuals but in relation to yourself, also. For in expressing to yourself an identification of some action that you create and subsequently expressing to yourself that you could have generated that action in a better manner, you are generating a comparison within yourself.
TRACY: I do that a lot! (Laughs)
ELIAS: I am aware! (Laughs)
TRACY: Elias, I want to thank you for your time, and it was a pleasure to talk with you.
ELIAS: And you also, my friend. I offer you tremendous encouragement in engaging your homework. Ha ha ha! And I shall offer my energy to you also.
TRACY: Thank you.
ELIAS: I express to you tremendous affection and anticipate our continued interaction. To you this day, au revoir.
Elias departs at 12:57 PM.
