“Silver, Gold and Copper”
Monday, October 21, 2002 (Private/Phone)
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Tracy (Kalum)
Elias arrives at 2:11 PM. (Arrival time is 22 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good day!
TRACY: Hey, Elias, greetings!
ELIAS: Ha ha! We meet again!
TRACY: Yes, yes, I’ve been noticing our contact. Much appreciation to you. (Elias chuckles) I haven’t remembered you from any dreams objectively yet, but I have a few questions for you.
ELIAS: Very well.
TRACY: Well, let’s start with intent, since that was the homework assignment from our last conversation. I’ve been exploring what my intent in this focus is. It was very helpful to hear from you that I was Sumafi and not Vold (laughs), which has served as a type of catalyst to reconnect consciously with my desire to teach other people. But I still don’t have a solid impression of what my intent is. I’ll just offer that I came up with “encouraging others by example to be spontaneously creative.” (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, this is one avenue in association with your intent. You are correct.
Now; be remembering, your intent is the general theme, so to speak, within your focus, and within that theme you choose many more specific directions to be expressive of that intent. This is one of those more expressive directions of your intent.
You are correct in association with your identification of encouragement to yourself and to other individuals through example, which also is associated with your direction related to what you identify as teaching. Not necessarily teaching in the traditional sense of the term, but through your movement and providing an example and sharing your experiences, you offer encouragement and information to other individuals, which also reflects to yourself.
TRACY: I see. Is there a way to sum that up? I’m assuming that both sides of my brain cooperate on this and the only thing I could think of that seemed to happen equally on the right side and the left side was a type of inter-networking ability.
ELIAS: Correct. Therefore, the general theme is to be expressing a balance in what you view as opposites, although they are not necessarily opposites, rather they are complements to each other in the general direction of objective and subjective, which applies to all areas of your focus. You are translating that in your individual imagery in relation to right and left brain.
TRACY: Interesting; that helps. I guess more questions along the self-awareness line — what is my color vibration? I guess I’m going to ask you also the sound or chorded note of my essence.
ELIAS: And what is your impression?
TRACY: Well, I thought long and hard about it. I think I would say black — black with perhaps some metallic, if there is a blending. (Pause)
ELIAS: I may express to you what you might identify as almost black but actually is a quite dark shade of violet.
TRACY: It’s hard to ask a visual artist what their favorite color is; I like them all. But I do like that color as well, the deep, deep velvet violet of some pansies. Okay, and a note?
ELIAS: And your impression?
TRACY: I was thinking the note of C, perhaps a higher octave of C.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Move in the other direction, my friend! Your identification of C is correct but in second octave, bass, which also moves in complement to your color, resonating deeper tones.
TRACY: I see. Oh, I’d like to get the name, family, orientation and color if possible of one of my friends, Becky.
ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Doyle, D-O-Y-L-E (DOIL). And your impression as to essence families?
TRACY: Perhaps Tumold?
TRACY: Ah! Interesting.
ELIAS: Orientation, common; vibrational quality of color, burnt orange.
TRACY: Oh! Very interesting. And her daughter, Ariella — can you tell me why I feel such a strong pull to this child? If you could be specific it would help me. I notice that I feel very drawn to her; we have a very similar energy pattern, I suppose. I don’t know how much has to do with our personality filter, but I also feel as though I’m there as a guardian. I’m wondering if it is the focuses that we have shared in the past or if we are connected through a larger essence family. What is the connection?
ELIAS: This is a familiarity that is generated through shared focuses — in actuality, many shared focuses, not merely within this physical dimension but other physical dimensions also.
TRACY: Is there anything notable that would be of assistance, if I were to know, that would assist me in my relationship with her?
ELIAS: Merely that you have been interactive with this individual in many different types of relationships, and as I have stated, not merely in this physical dimension but within others also, which generates a considerable bleed-through in recognition of strong familiarity, which you may be allowing yourself more of an ease in appreciation of this individual in relation to that familiarity. In a manner of speaking, you merely generate more of an ease in that type of expression and in expressing acceptance.
TRACY: Then my personality type — I was trying to decide if I am emotional or religious. Those are the two that I would offer to you. I’m tending to think that I am religious in focus, in the sense of when I first meet people going on my feelings, my physical inner sensations, vibrations, as opposed to emotional reactions.
TRACY: Interesting. I don’t run with the herd, do I? (Elias laughs)
Let’s go into the second homework assignment from last time, which was my automatic responses. Sometimes I’m not sure if I’m identifying them correctly in your terms, this energy snap. There were times that I’ve met people, specifically a man named Gary in Denver, where I feel that because I was allowing myself to move past that sort of a snap judgment, I ended up forming a strong bond with someone. But I’m having difficulty telling the difference between where it’s discernment and simply not wanting to follow a certain opportunity that’s given or a particular relationship, and what you’re calling a snap judgment or an energy snap.
ELIAS: Offer example of what you view to be a confusing scenario in which you incorporate difficulty in identifying what you are actually engaging, in relation to what may be an automatic response.
TRACY: Very well. For example, if someone I met were to suggest that they offer assistance to me in finding employment and I decide, before even knowing particularly what that assistance would be, that this probably won’t be a good use of my time.
ELIAS: This is an automatic response.
Now; in identifying an automatic response, what also are you offering yourself in information in relation to other choices?
TRACY: Specifically in that scenario, there’s a few things. One is that I may not be interested in looking for a job at that point in time. It could be that I’m not confident based on my knowledge of the person offering the assistance that they would be able to help me in a meaningful manner or in a way which would add to the assistance which I offer myself. Those two, I’ll say.
ELIAS: Recognize that there are no accidents and therefore you draw individuals to yourself purposefully. Even if you are drawing an individual to yourself for merely what you term to be a time framework of five minutes, there is some expression of reflection that that individual offers to you in those moments.
Now; what you are unaccustomed to is paying attention to what you are generating, what you are choosing, what you are drawing to yourself and what information you are offering to yourself in these presentments. This is the significance of recognizing and identifying automatic responses, for you ignore information in the action of automatic responses.
Now; as in the scenario of your example in which an individual may approach you and offer you information concerning employment, this is not to say that you may be choosing to alter your direction. But you are drawing to yourself energy from another individual and offering yourself information, perhaps merely to identify automatic responses, or perhaps to offer yourself information concerning what influences certain triggers within interactions that you engage with other individuals, or perhaps to alter your perception and serve as an aid in your expression of acceptance — perhaps even all of these expressions.
For the most part individuals draw to themselves energy and generate experiences which engage more than one expression simultaneously and more than one opportunity to be examining different aspects of your expressions and of yourself. But what is familiar is to generate the automatic response and ignore information which you are offering to yourself and therefore ignore your opportunity.
This is the point in your choosing to be engaging this information, that you may become more familiar with yourself and therefore more efficiently, objectively and intentionally direct your choices in the manner in which you want.
TRACY: Am I thinking of it correctly to think that discernment is the positive pole of judgment? Is there a duplicity arrangement there?
ELIAS: Yes. Discernment is not necessarily positive or negative. It is an evaluation. It is an allowance of yourself to pay attention to yourself, to the information that you are offering to yourself in reflection and within yourself through your communications and in listening, [and] allowing yourself to evaluate what you are presenting to yourself and what you are doing in relation to that presentment.
TRACY: Can you speak more on the colors of gold and silver, and even copper, if it’s relevant? In the other transcripts you had gone into some of the qualities of other colors, and I don’t believe you had touched on the metallics at all.
ELIAS: What is the nature of your question in relation to these colors?
TRACY: Perhaps in a sense to categorize them. What is the translation of their tone into sound? I sort of perceive gold as being masculine and silver as being feminine. Does copper correspond to soft in its vibration? I’m just curious, I suppose.
ELIAS: Very well, I am understanding. Your association with gold as incorporating masculine quality and silver incorporating feminine quality is correct. Therefore, as with all of your reality, they may also be associated with gender. That which you identify as copper is neutral and not necessarily identified with either gender, but more with both.
As to an association of copper with an orientation, no. Its vibrational quality may be incorporated as a neutralizing factor, in a manner of speaking. For in association with gender within your physical dimension, it incorporates qualities of both and therefore may be manipulated in vibrational quality to be a bridge, so to speak, between the two.
That of silver may be incorporated and manipulated in vibrational quality in assistance, so to speak, in shifting. For as you are aware, as I have stated, this shift in consciousness is moving from the male or masculine expression to the female expression of energy, therefore from the intellectual to the intuitional. Therefore, incorporating the vibrational quality of silver may be assisting, so to speak, in an individual’s action of shifting through relaxation, concentration upon this color, or meditation in association with the vibrational quality of this color. It may also be incorporated in association with the energy centers.
TRACY: And that leads into my next question. What is the location of the corresponding centers for gold and silver?
ELIAS: These are not associated with energy centers. There are many, many expressions of color that you incorporate within your physical dimension and they may be indirectly associated with the vibrational quality of each of your energy centers, but energy centers resonate specific vibrational qualities. They do incorporate, each of them, all of those qualities of each other, but they are quite specific in their dominating vibrational expressions. This is the reason that they are not expressed in other hues but specifically in the basic, so to speak, colors of specific qualities, such as red, yellow, blue, pink. You do not associate these colors with aqua or rose or brick, but the basic color expressions which generate a specific vibrational quality.
TRACY: I just found your words relating black and white and magenta to the energy centers sort of directly outside of the immediate physical body to be very helpful in my own meditations. So thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
TRACY: And now I guess I want to ask you, what is most helpful for me to know at this point? I’m allowing you to speak freely to me as last time.
ELIAS: In this time framework, express to myself what is being expressed within you as your strongest concern.
TRACY: Well, I enjoy the study of self-awareness and certainly I’ve been using your transcripts as guidelines. I’m curious if there’s something that I’ve missed or I’m not focusing on, something that would be of assistance to me in understanding myself and all that is.
ELIAS: Very well.
Now; express to myself, what have you noticed in recent months in association with your movement and what you have been generating?
TRACY: I’ve noticed that the timeframe between thoughts that I give creative intent to and their objective manifestation is becoming quite short! (Laughing)
Now; also express to myself your identification of what you have generated in recent months in offering yourself information concerning your most familiar expression within this focus.
TRACY: Elias, I’m not sure I understood that question.
ELIAS: Your most familiar automatic response — your most familiar expression that has been generated in recent months, and your allowance of yourself to be examining it and moving yourself into an expression of acceptance rather than generating another familiar response of discounting yourself and expressing, “I should know more than this and I should not be expressing this particular direction any longer.”
TRACY: Well, I would say that would have to be judgment, in general. Did you want something more specific?
TRACY: We had talked about annoyance the last time, so I’ve been noticing when that crops up again and why, and trying to listen to the emotions as communication and to carve out that balance between not discounting myself and maintaining harmony.
Now; my questioning in this direction is purposeful, for in this, you, in like manner to many, many, many other individuals and especially all of the individuals that choose to be participating in this forum with myself, have generated a quite significant movement in shifting in recent months. And in this shifting, you have chosen to be presenting to yourselves your most familiar automatic response that you have generated throughout most of your focus.
Some individuals have temporarily expressed a discounting of themselves in frustration that they continue to express these most familiar automatic responses. But many of you, yourself as one, have allowed yourselves to pay attention to those expressions and have offered yourselves new choices in freedom, recognizing that this is a familiar automatic response but rather than discounting yourself have allowed yourself to incorporate the information that you have assimilated and move in the direction of offering yourself new choices, new expressions, and new freedoms. Are you understanding?
TRACY: I am.
ELIAS: This is worthy of acknowledgment, my friend.
TRACY: Thank you. You know, I read a biography on Oscar Wilde when I was younger and I just pulled out a book of his letters not too long before this session, before I knew anything of you as “Elias.” I was wondering where my early interest in that focus stems from.
ELIAS: A pool of probabilities in association with the potential of your objective engagement of myself in this focus.
TRACY: I have a question on whether or not I’m a final focus.
ELIAS: And your impression?
TRACY: I get the sense that I haven’t decided. (Laughs)
ELIAS: Let me express to you my friend, individuals that incorporate the designation of a final focus or a beginning focus also incorporate a strong sense of identification of that designation. Therefore, I am acknowledging of your impression in not clearly identifying, for you are not a final focus.
TRACY: I have a desire to become a trance channel like Mary, and I was wondering if you have any suggestions for how I can accelerate the attainment of that goal.
ELIAS: Merely to allow yourself to relax and express an openness.
TRACY: That sounds very easy!
ELIAS: Quite. It is an allowance, my friend. It is not an action in which you may force your energy. For an essence that may be available, so to speak, to be engaging that type of action in energy exchange with you shall not be intrusive. Therefore, it shall not be expressed if there is not an openness and an allowance and an ability to relax and merely receive.
TRACY: Understood. I have a question about the 614 or 615 focuses I have in this dimension. Can you tell me what number are in the future from our linear time perspective here, and how many are in the past? (Pause)
ELIAS: Future focuses incorporated, 110. Therefore, the remaining may be recognized as past.
TRACY: I’m out of stored questions, so perhaps we can just talk. I think the last time I spoke to you I mentioned my goal of starting a retreat. I’ve made some actions toward that end — meeting a woman who is at least in the beginning stages of talking about potentially investigating the possibility that we could be partners in such a venture. I feel good, that in a sense I feel conscious that I created that, and I’m somewhat surprised at how short a time it took.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! And what is your sense in association with generating a partnership with this individual?
TRACY: Pleasant surprise. Did you say what is my reaction or what is my...?
ELIAS: Your sense.
TRACY: It seems that we have a very similar dream in terms of how she manifested her first creation along those lines and what she wants for the place.
ELIAS: And what do you offer to this venture?
TRACY: Well, I think enthusiasm. She’s been doing it for a while and could use some trusted help. For me, she’s someone that I could learn from. She knows the ins and outs of the business — a partner, I suppose, someone who could both teach me and assist me in realizing it.
ELIAS: Very well. Therefore you are generating an ease, which also may be instrumental in reinforcing your trust of yourself in your abilities. Let me express to you, my friend, many times it may be quite beneficial to pool your energy with other individuals. For as individuals allow themselves to focus their energies together, you generate a strength in energy, which also generates more of an ease for each individual participating to actualize what they want in manifestation.
TRACY: It sounds like she had already realized that with her husband, so perhaps there will be three of us now.
ELIAS: Correct. I am quite encouraging of you in your movement and your allowance of yourself to be expressing an openness in this scenario and also expressing a willingness to pool your energy with other individuals that move in a similar direction.
TRACY: Perhaps since we have some time, I’m able to ask you the family and orientation of Becky’s husband, Chris. (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence family, Vold; alignment, Tumold; orientation, common.
TRACY: And the name? (Pause)
ELIAS: Alphi, A-L-P-H-I (ALL fee).
TRACY: Okay, thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
TRACY: Is it possible for you to express in more specific detail perhaps a significant focus that Ariella and I have shared in this dimension, one that might have some bearing on our relationship as it evolves?
ELIAS: One that you may be investigating together if you are so choosing? (Chuckles)
ELIAS: Very well. I may offer two — one within what you identify as ancient Greece, a relationship with each other as sisters but not incorporating the same mother, in which you both move in an interest in the religion, so to speak, of mythology — for within that time framework it is not considered mythology, but is viewed as reality and is expressed in religious terms — in this also generating a strong affinity in the investigation of individual power in association with magic, so to speak.
One other focus that you may be investigating together, you are not related in family but closely associated in friendship and status in ancient Egyptian culture. This also moves in similar direction, incorporating some superstition, but for the most part generating expressions of priestesses. You may easily investigate either focus.
TRACY: Interesting. Speaking about focuses along the lines of priests or priestess, the translation of my essence tone, Kalum, I notice is Sumerian for “temple priest” but also has Scottish roots. Are they both applicable in their tone or is that circumstantial?
ELIAS: Yes, they are applicable in your preference.
TRACY: (Laughs) Can you tell me of a focus I’ve shared with my friend Becky that would be relevant or have bearing on our close friendship today?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, all of your focuses are relevant and are, in a manner of speaking, influencing, for they are all you. They are merely different aspects of you and they are all occurring simultaneously now. Therefore, it is merely a matter of moving your attention in different directions. Your attention is focused in this manifestation, but you also incorporate the ability to move your attention in relaxing your attention, and you may be directing it to a different focus which is also you, and therefore you shall be it.
TRACY: Understood. I suppose I haven’t yet been able to do that with a focus that Becky and I share. I don’t sense any subjective bleed-through, so hence my question.
ELIAS: This is what I am expressing to you. Many times you incorporate what you term to be strong or close relationships with other individuals and do not necessarily experience bleed-through from other focuses that may be directly associated with your relationship with the other individual, but you may recognize a familiarity with the individual.
In this, you may know within yourself that you do incorporate other focuses with the individual and this generates that familiarity, but you are focusing your attention in this manifestation and this particular relationship with the individual in its unique expression.
Many times individuals experience bleed-through in association with what you identify as negative experiences, but may merely recognize that familiarity in association with what you identify as positive experiences. Of course, I shall remind you that this is not a rule. There are some individuals that do allow themselves an objective bleed-through in relation to what you identify as positive experiences, but it is much more often expressed in relation to your identification of uncomfortable experiences.
TRACY: I seem to get a lot of my bleed-through culturally, in a preference for artifacts from a certain land or a certain culture.
ELIAS: This is imagery that you offer to yourself in association with what you define as bleed-through, yes.
TRACY: Would you be able to tell me how many focuses Becky and I have shared in this dimension?
TRACY: Okay! (Laughs) I know she’s going to ask me! Well, I suppose I’m out of questions. I have so many that as soon as I hang up the phone I’ll think of all the things I should have asked you. (Elias laughs) Elias, I seem to feel your presence sometimes. Can you confirm for me objectively that that is you?
TRACY: I keep meaning to go take a photo of the horizon of the sky meeting the sea. I’ll consider that your phone number! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha! Very well! And I may express to you that the more that you generate an openness and allowance of my energy to be interactive with you, the more you shall notice it, for I am interactive with you continuously.
TRACY: That’s such a good note to end this on, then. Until we speak next time, it is always a pleasure, and I hope we continue to work together.
ELIAS: And so we shall my friend, and I shall be continuing to offer encouraging energy to you in your adventure and your new creations with your friends. I shall be offering my acknowledgment to you also.
TRACY: Thank you. Bye.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome. To you as always, my friend, in great affection, au revoir.
Elias departs at 3:03 PM.
