Movements in the Shift in Consciousness
“Movements in the Shift in Consciousness”
Thursday, May 6, 2004 (Private/Phone)
Participants: Mary (Michael) and a new participant, Lawrence (Tzirz)
(Elias’ arrival time is 13 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
LAWRENCE: Good morning, Elias! How are you doing?
ELIAS: As always, and yourself?
LAWRENCE: I’m doing good, as good as I can be; I’m a little under the weather today. (Elias laughs) But besides that, very good. I guess we should just start, then, huh?
ELIAS: Very well.
LAWRENCE: I’d like to start by knowing my essence name and family.
ELIAS: Essence name, Tzirz, T-Z-I-R-Z (TYEERZ). And your impression as to essence families?
LAWRENCE: I’m thinking either Borledim or Sumari, but I’m not sure.
ELIAS: Reverse, and you are correct.
ELIAS: Belonging to; alignment, Borledim.
LAWRENCE: Well, cool! I got that right! (Both laugh) Close enough for me, I guess I’ll say! I’m just starting off kind of personally, and then I’m going to move on to topics about the Shift.
ELIAS: Very well.
LAWRENCE: I guess everything is my family. I have four daughters and a wife. My youngest daughter is six months old, and ever since she’s been born everybody keeps talking about her strange connection to my grandfather, who just passed on recently. I don’t know exactly how I feel about that, but I just wanted to ask if there was any possibility of a connection there.
ELIAS: There is a tremendous familiarity, for they have incorporated many, many focuses together. There is a similarity in the energy of these two essences and also a counterpart action that has occurred between these essences in many, many, many different actions. They are not focuses of the same essence, but they have shared tremendous connection.
LAWRENCE: I didn’t expect that answer. That’s very interesting. I’ll have to think about that for a while! (Both laugh)
Another question I have is that it seems like lately whenever either I’m meditating or I’m dreaming, and it’s been just within the past couple of weeks, I get this image in my head of a younger man, probably thirties, short hair, almost shaven, and these almost crystal blue eyes. Is there any special link with me with that, or is that something I should take notice of?
ELIAS: (Laughs) The key is the eyes, and in this, what you are allowing is my energy, to be introducing myself to you.
LAWRENCE: I knew it! (Both laugh) I talked with my wife about it and she said maybe that was an introduction, and I was thinking I’d have to ask that question. It wasn’t actually one of my original questions. (Elias laughs) That’s great! Very good. That answers pretty much my personal part.
ELIAS: Now we have been formally introduced! Ha ha ha!
LAWRENCE: It’s nice to meet you!
ELIAS: (Laughs) And you also!
LAWRENCE: Thank you! I’ve been reading up on transcripts for a while, and it’s almost like I’ve gotten to feel very... I was a little nervous coming into the conversation, but not really because you almost seem familiar to me in a way. I guess you probably hear that a lot. (Both laugh) But you seem very familiar; I think that’s a good thing.
Let’s move on to the Shift. That’s mainly what I’m interested in lately. I’ve noticed a widening variety of books coming out. I took particular notice in the bookstore the other day of a book by Neale Donald Walsch, who did the “Conversations with God” series. I never was one to read those, but he just put out a book called “Tomorrow’s God” that actually when you read it and put it side-by-side to a lot of your work and a lot of other things, it seems to be talking about the shift in consciousness.
LAWRENCE: It’s almost very directly talking about the shift in consciousness. I wonder is this just the coming awareness of the Shift happening?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes, for this is what you would term to be the objective expression of this shift in consciousness. You have been, as I have stated previously, engaged for 100 of your years in the subjective movement of this shift in consciousness, which inspired tremendous invention and tremendous movement in discoveries within your world and your reality. Now, as you have entered into this new millennium, you are engaging the objective insertion of this shift in consciousness, which you shall be noticing more and more expressions within your world of evidences that individuals are widening their awareness and are moving in the expression of this shift.
LAWRENCE: So basically it’s going from thoughts into actual placing it into reality? Is that what you’re saying?
ELIAS: Not necessarily thought but more of an objective awareness of what you are actually doing. Previously, individuals were quite inspired to be generating new discoveries in what you may term to be a type of age of discovery but were not necessarily aware objectively of what was motivating those discoveries and the inventiveness in those discoveries. Now as individuals have been widening their awareness, they incorporate more of an objective understanding, recognition and awareness of their own expansions and of the expansion of awareness of the collective within your reality, which is the objective insertion of this shift, which shall generate its accomplishment.
LAWRENCE: All right, that makes a bit more sense now! Another thing going off that particular novel, which I just got through reading, is that at the end he makes an invitation to set up what he calls teams, which are groups of people in different states and different countries banding together to help in this shift in consciousness. It brought about an interesting question to me. Is it necessarily important to band together in a group of people or community, or is it just as important to do it individually, to send all your energy personally out? Is it really either one? I imagine both are very helpful towards the Shift, but is there one way to go? I was just wondering if it would be a good idea to join something like this.
ELIAS: That would be associated with individual preferences.
Now; I may express to you that in pooling energies with other individuals, you do generate a strength in energy and you also facilitate creating much more of an ease to be accomplishing whatever you choose to be accomplishing in association with this shift or with any action. For as individuals generate a cooperation with each other and pool their energies, they create an ease in their accomplishments, and they generate that, generally speaking, much more quickly. But what is the most significant is to be becoming familiar and aware individually of self, of your own beliefs, of your own acceptance and of the type of energy that you are expressing outwardly.
This time framework is quite concentrated upon the significance of the individual and individuals becoming aware of themselves to an extent in which they are intentionally directing themselves and not allowing themselves to be directed by other individuals. It is a time framework in which what you are doing is moving into a greater expression of the individual and redefining your reality in association with authority — not following, but directing of yourselves.
Now; let me also express to you that in being aware of yourself and in holding your attention to self, you may also simultaneously be generating a contribution in energy in cooperation with other individuals and not necessarily be interactive physically with them and not necessarily be interactive in verbal communication or even written communication with other individuals. Your energy may be projected in a manner that shall automatically connect with other individuals and their energy in similar expressions, and in that manner you offer your pooling of energy with other individuals without actually physically participating with them.
Now; if you incorporate a preference to be interactive with other individuals that are expressing in like manner to yourself, I may be encouraging you to be incorporating that type of action, but merely if it is what you assess within yourself as a preference — not as an expression that you SHOULD be incorporating that action, but rather that you want to be incorporating that action, for it is not necessary to be forming groups of individuals.
Although the principle of pooling energy is quite real and quite effective, generally speaking individuals may not necessarily incorporate an awareness or an understanding yet that they may accomplish that without actually physically grouping themselves together. That is a familiar action, of moving together in a group in a physical manner, which does accomplish, but at times it may be limiting also, for individuals may force themselves to participate in group situations in which they may not necessarily be entirely comfortable for they may be forcing their energy to be engaging some action that is not their preference but that they believe is what they SHOULD be doing, which is not the situation.
LAWRENCE: I think the idea of going into a group is more appealing. I think you know intuitively; your essence lets you know what the right answers are. But I think sometimes people just need that; they want to hear someone else say what they already know.
ELIAS: I am understanding, which is the significance of interaction with other individuals, not to be instructing but to be sharing experiences. In that sharing of experiences, you do offer yourselves more information.
LAWRENCE: Very good. You’re just breezing right through my questions very easily! (Both laugh)
Another thing that I’ve noticed is that there’s been a kind of renewed interest in the Christ essence and Christianity’s belief in that. Is this all just the presence of Rose in our reality kind of moving us towards that direction of thinking of the Christ essence? It makes you wonder, because it’s not necessarily what I deem to be true; it’s kind of the Christianity definition of it.
ELIAS: I am understanding, but this also is another movement and evidence of the movement of this shift in consciousness, not necessarily to be generating a movement associated with the establishments of different religions, but more so it is an inspiration to be generating an avenue in which individuals may be becoming more aware of themselves and more aware of their own choices and their own movement. They may be incorporating a focal point which may be expressed in that individual, but it is merely another avenue in which individuals may be exploring themselves and incorporating somewhat of a different language concerning it. That does not invalidate their movement and their own shifting. They are merely incorporating different focal points.
Many, many, many individuals incorporate conversations with myself. I am another avenue. I am another focal point that you all are engaging and drawing to yourselves to offer yourselves information to be more aware of yourselves and your beliefs, and therefore allow yourselves to widen your awarenesses and expand your abilities or expand your allowance of yourselves to generate your abilities that you already hold but you do not necessarily engage.
In this, other individuals may be incorporating different focal points that allow them to concentrate their energy in a specific direction and allows them to widen their awareness also. They may merely be incorporating a different language in their process.
LAWRENCE: So basically people are just using different methods to open up their awareness of themselves?
LAWRENCE: Very good! (Both laugh) As you can tell, I wrote down all my questions because I was afraid I was going to forget them. Now I realize that was the right thing, because if I hadn’t had this written down on a sheet a paper, it would just be gone right now! (Both laugh)
I’ve read different books and different meditations, guides, and some of the Seth material. Are there any specific exercises you could give me in reference to helping to lift the veil around myself, and also dream interpretations and using my dream state? Are there any specific exercises you could give me?
ELIAS: I may express to you, it may be useful to you to be engaging the exercise in clarity, for that allows you to recognize objectively how you may be manipulating your energy, manipulating your attention and generating a flexibility in attention. As you allow yourself to view your own ability to be manipulating your attention in specific manners, this offers you much more of a flexibility in directing yourself in generating specific focuses of your attention in specific directions, and allows you to manipulate your energy and direct it in a manner that shall accomplish what you want in specific directions.
As an example, it allows you to recognize your abilities and incorporate a confidence that you may intentionally generate specific movements, such as projections, or within different states, so to speak, allowing yourself to connect with or view other focuses of yourself or to access information from future focuses or other areas of consciousness.
I may also express to you another exercise that may be somewhat enlightening to you that I have expressed previously with other individuals to emphasize how automatic most of your movements and actions and choices are. Incorporate one or two days in which you attempt to notice every action that you incorporate, regardless of how insignificant you deem it to be, but merely notice every action that you generate within a day, even to the point of whether you close a door in any particular situation or how you generate interaction with your family in each moment, how you interact with individuals within your employment, how you move, how you walk, how you manipulate objects.
This is significant, for there are many, many, many actions that you incorporate within one day that are automatic actions and responses that are all influenced by beliefs, and the same beliefs that influence all of these mundane, insignificant actions are those that also influence what you would term to be large events, for they are all choices. This shall allow you to recognize how much of your time is generated in automatic pilot, in which you are not aware of what you are actually doing.
LAWRENCE: It seems to me, I think, a big problem with this particular reality or framework is that people seem to take every motion they have, even every movement, no matter how insignificant, for granted in a sense.
LAWRENCE: I don’t think people realize their inner divinity, or their divinity, period.
ELIAS: I am understanding. The significance of this particular exercise is much more far-reaching than it may initially appear. For all of you within this reality incorporate experiences and time frameworks in which you generate frustration or conflict, and in those moments your automatic initial response is to inquire within yourself why, why has this occurred. Generally speaking, dependent upon the situation and the scenario, the next expression that you generate, which is also quite automatic, is to be feeling yourselves to be a victim, for you have not incorporated an objective awareness of what has occurred to generate certain experiences that you may not necessarily appreciate or in your terms like.
The significance of this exercise is to emphasize how many actions are incorporated within one day, how many choices are generated within one day that are unnoticed, how much time you incorporate not noticing and not paying attention to what you are actually doing, and not paying attention to what motivates that doing, what is influencing what you do.
For as I have expressed many, many times, there is no SUB-conscious. There is no element of your reality that is hidden from you. There is no direction from some higher self that is generating your choices for you. You merely do not pay attention to the choices that you engage, and you do not pay attention to what you actually do. Therefore, you generate these time frameworks and these experiences in which you become confused and you do not understand why a certain experience has occurred.
But were you to be aware, which is the point, of what you are doing in the now and what type of energy you are projecting outwardly, you would also be aware of the whys of your experiences and offer yourself the empowerment to intentionally direct your choices in a manner which is more befitting your preferences.
LAWRENCE: You’ve got me thinking very hard now! (Both laugh) I got very lost — not lost in a bad way — but very much understood what you were saying.
Let me jump on to a side note real quick. Another personal question is that my wife and I communicate constantly, and we really back each other up and kind of help each other in our own, I guess, self-awareness and learning about ourselves. She seems very familiar to me, extremely familiar to me. Have our essences or focuses interacted before?
ELIAS: Quite! I may express to you, in your terms this would be a soul mate. You have shared many, many, many focuses together and engaged many relationships with each other in different capacities.
LAWRENCE: As for the term “soul mate,” I’ve always been kind of iffy on the term “soul mate.”
ELIAS: Individuals incorporate many soul mates. This is a term that you incorporate within your reality, and generally speaking, many individuals associate that with a romantic connotation. As I express this term to you, what I am expressing is an identification of tremendous familiarity, for you have shared many focuses together and have incorporated many experiences, and your essences express a type of preference for manifesting together.
LAWRENCE: That’s very interesting.
ELIAS: Generally speaking, those essences that generate this expression of soul mate — which once again I may reiterate, you incorporate many, many, many, not merely one — but those essences generally incorporate a preference in their energies together and generate similarities in qualities of essence, and therefore they create an ease in whatever roles they choose to be engaging in manifestations.
Now; I may also express that generally speaking, soul mates shall generate some type of meeting in most of their shared focuses, even in those focuses in which they are not generating an intimate relationship with each other in some capacity, which is not necessarily expressed exclusively in romantic relationships but also in family relationships and in closely-bound friendships.
LAWRENCE: That’s very interesting. (Laughs) I feel like I’m just repeating myself! (Elias laughs) When you get done talking sometimes I’m just kind of ... not stunned, but it makes sense.
ELIAS: I am understanding. Ha ha ha!
LAWRENCE: I think that’s the most important of the information that you give, that it seems very familiar. I think it definitely taps into that knowing.
LAWRENCE: I’m slowly learning how to trust my inner instincts and to trust myself, which is very important...
LAWRENCE: ...to follow my own lead...
LAWRENCE: ...which I think is hugely important.
ELIAS: Which also is your expression of freedom. That is quite significant, for that allows you to actually create what you want.
LAWRENCE: I’m trying real hard to get to that point, you know? It’s a constant day-in, day-out fighting of belief systems...
ELIAS: Ah! Now; that is significant also, for you may be thwarting yourself in that action. The point is not to be battling with your beliefs. The point is to be recognizing that they exist and to STOP fighting with them.
Let me express to you, my friend, every belief that you incorporate as an expressed belief has many different influences. You may be viewing one belief that you incorporate and you may assess it to be bad or a negative belief, but that negative belief in some capacities also incorporates what you would view as positive influences. It is merely a matter of how it is expressed, and THAT is choice.
THAT is wherein lies your freedom — not in eliminating beliefs, not in fighting with them, not in struggle, but in genuine evaluation of your beliefs and recognition of the different influences that they each incorporate. In that awareness, you offer yourself tremendous power, for thusly you may choose how you shall express each belief. You may choose which influences you wish to be incorporating in association with each belief.
LAWRENCE: I’m so quick to tell other people, or in discussions I’ll say it’s not so much that you fight with your belief systems, you accept them.
LAWRENCE: I’ll tell people that, but then it’s hard to internalize that! (Laughs)
ELIAS: I am quite understanding, for this is a very unfamiliar action, and the automatic response is to attempt to eliminate or to change, which is not the point.
This reality has woven in its blueprint beliefs and belief systems, and they shall not be eliminated. They are an integral element of this particular reality. If you are not incorporating beliefs, you are not participating within this physical reality. Remember, you have CHOSEN to be manifest in this physical reality, and the reason you have chosen to be manifest in this reality is to explore and to experience all that you explore in a physical manner in association with the blueprint of this particular physical dimension.
Now; in this shift in consciousness, the POINT is to genuinely be recognizing and evaluating and incorporate an awareness of your beliefs objectively, accepting them, accepting yourself, and therefore allowing yourself this tremendous expression of power and freedom in allowing yourself to intentionally choose rather than limiting yourselves in automatic responses.
I have offered previously an example of a belief concerning murder. The automatic response to the subject of murder for most individuals is that it is bad. Therefore, the expression of or the belief of murder is automatically attempted to eliminate. But it is dependent upon the situation of whether you deem this to actually be negative or not. In certain situations, regardless of how you BELIEVE — which is an expression of thought, which is not necessarily a belief — but regardless of what you BELIEVE concerning the taking of a life, that may change dependent upon the situation and dependent upon the scenario.
You may not necessarily express that it is negative in certain scenarios; you may justify. You may be expressing to yourself that this action of incorporating the death of another individual or a creature may be justified in a scenario in which you are experiencing a threat and deem it necessary to be defending yourself or defending a loved one. In that scenario, the belief and its influences are not necessarily bad.
There are many, many, many, many different influences of EVERY belief. This is the reason that I have expressed many times, beliefs in themselves are not good or bad; they merely are. It is your association with them and how you express them in association with your own individual guidelines in your focus and your preferences that deem them to be good or bad.
LAWRENCE: I think that’s the hardest belief system to accept, that there is no good or bad, when basically we’ve been raised... Everything, this whole framework, it seems like, runs on the good or bad moral values.
ELIAS: Correct, and I am understanding.
Now; I shall express to you as I have recently similarly with other individuals, for this is a considerably confusing factor in this time framework. Duplicity is a belief system also. It is not being eliminated either. Therefore, it is not a question of attempting to move yourself into this false expression that there is no good and bad — although there is no good and bad — but it matters not, for the point is for you to recognize what your preferences are. Those are your preferred beliefs. They may be quite strong and they influence your opinions, but as I have expressed from the onset of my engagement with all of you, you are not eliminating your preferences or your opinions. You may be accepting and continue to express your opinions and your preferences. The acceptance is expressed in the knowing that these are your guidelines that you set for yourself in association with your choices and your behaviors and your movements, but they are not necessarily applicable to other individuals.
Therefore in recognizing that they are your expressions and your choices but they are not actually right or wrong, they may be right to you but they are not absolutely right or wrong. Therefore, another individual may be expressing differently, and you recognize that you may not necessarily AGREE with their expression, you may not necessarily LIKE their expression, but that is not to say that it is wrong.
LAWRENCE: I guess the beauty of it is that everybody’s able to believe whatever they want to and it’s just that you accept it.
ELIAS: And you accept your own beliefs as your own guidelines within your focus.
LAWRENCE: I’ve never thought of it that way. You just cleared up a lot right there! (Both laugh) Thank you very much!
ELIAS: You are very welcome!
LAWRENCE: I feel much better now. I was reading “The Shift, Elias Book One,” and I kept coming back to duplicity and going back to it and back to it, and that never quite clicked until just then when you told me that, so thank you very much!
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend.
LAWRENCE: We are just about out of time. We’ve got about five minutes left. Not that time is relevant, but you know! (Both laugh) I guess in certain cases it is.
I guess as simply as I can ask this is how is the Shift...? I guess it’s completed in a sense, in another time framework. Is it going well? I’m not sure how to ask that question!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! In your terms, yes.
LAWRENCE: That’s good to know. What can we...? Oh, man, I don’t even know how to ask! I just get so excited when I think about it, when I think about a world of new possibilities, of acceptance and without the use of war, just where we all kind of come together and realize that we all come from the same source and there’s not any point in a lot of things.
ELIAS: Ah, but recognize that experiences are choices. You are not creating a utopia; that would not be the point. What you are creating is a wider awareness in which you recognize that whatever choices you are engaging, you are generating intentionally and you are aware of. Therefore, in any scenario — as an example, an individual may choose to be engaging violence with another individual — but both individuals are aware of their participation and are aware of what they are creating in cooperation with each other.
LAWRENCE: Once again, that clarified another thing that I was wondering.
We’re almost out of time, so I’m going to ask you a question that I think is funny in itself, if I could ask a question on behalf of my wife.
ELIAS: Very well.
LAWRENCE: She’s not sure what it means, but she went through a long time period where in all her dreams — I feel kind of silly even asking! — peaches, the actual fruit, peaches appeared constantly in her dreams. She wanted me to ask you if there was any validity or what that could possibly mean, if you had any insight into that.
ELIAS: Actually, I may. I may express to you that you may convey my explanation of this dream imagery. This imagery she has presented to herself as her symbol of softness and gentleness, as a reminder to herself to be allowing herself to generate that gentleness and softness with herself.
LAWRENCE: I didn’t expect that answer to come out of that! (Elias laughs) She’s going to be very excited to hear that, because she’s been kind of struggling with herself a bit.
ELIAS: This is her symbol to be reminding herself to be incorporating that gentleness and softness with herself that she easily expresses with other individuals but not necessarily with herself. Therefore, whenever she is presenting herself with this imagery, she may remember that this is her symbolization of gentleness.
LAWRENCE: See, that’s great! (Laughs) I don’t think I expected that! (Elias laughs) She’s going to be very pleased with that. While we’ll talking about her, is there any way I could get her essence name?
ELIAS: Very well.
LAWRENCE: Do you need her regular name or what we call her here?
ELIAS: (Laughs) You may offer that.
LAWRENCE: Her name is Dana.
ELIAS: Essence name, Shou Shi, S-H-O-U, next word, S-H-I (SHOUW SHEE).
LAWRENCE: Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
LAWRENCE: Our time is almost up. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate and looked forward to sitting down and talking with you. I really think you’ve given me another path to take in self-discovery.
ELIAS: And I am encouraging of you in this, my friend.
LAWRENCE: Thank you very much!
ELIAS: Ha ha! I shall be anticipating our next meeting, and I shall be offering my energy to you and to your partner in encouragement and supportiveness, and perhaps a little playfulness! (Both laugh)
LAWRENCE: Thank you very much, and I’ll talk to you very soon.
ELIAS: In genuine affection to you, my friend, au revoir.
LAWRENCE: Au revoir.
(Elias departs after 1 hour.)
(1) The Exercise in Clarity, from 9/22/96:
“Within the beginning elements of this exercise, I shall be asking you to be holding your field of vision, not closing eyes; for you are turning to this attention, this station, this channel. You are noticing and allowing clarity of this channel. Therefore, the purpose is not to be altering your state.
“In this, I will ask you to sit comfortably. Focus upon any given object within your room, but do not concentrate intensely upon this object. Allow for your vision to normally encompass the entirety of the room, with one main focal point. Do not strain, and do not force yourselves to be concentrating very hard upon any given object. In this, now tune your consciousness to your senses. Notice your vision. Allow your vision to be as clear as it may possibly be. Tune to your hearing. Notice all of the sounds that occur. Many sounds are occurring that you automatically tune out and pay little attention to. Notice your body, your physical feelings, your body temperature. Notice your sense of touch. The air touches your skin continuously. Your clothing touches your skin. These are all elements that are a part of the clarity of your focus, to which you pay little attention to. Notice smells. You pay little attention to your sense of smell throughout your individual, mundane day. Notice your sense of taste. You view that if you are not consuming something, you are not tasting anything. Your senses are highly tuned, and respond regardless. They incorporate continuous stimulation. You only choose to not be clear upon these senses.
“Take a moment to concentrate, unstrained, upon the activity of all of these senses that you incorporate throughout every moment of your physical focus. (Here there is a ninety-second pause)
“Now, I will be instructing each of you to be closing your eyes and allowing your attention to drift. Do not be focusing upon your outer senses, so to speak. Allow yourself to feel comfortable, and calm, and quiet. (Here there is a thirty-second pause) Enough drifting!
“You will notice that with your eyes closed, you will drift. You have experienced, within your attempts at meditation at times, difficulty in holding your focus. You experience, much of your time within your dream state, an inability to hold your focus and manipulate within that focus. This exercise of tuning your directed attention, your consciousness which is tuned to this channel, will be very helpful to you in instructional areas of developing your ability to be manipulating within alternate channels. Altered states, as you term these, are all alternate channels. If you hold the ability to consciously manipulate within the consciousness that holds your attention, you will more easily learn to manipulate and understand within alternate channels of consciousness. Therefore, throughout this week, until our next meeting, I shall offer you the opportunity for what you would term to be homework! I shall be instructing you to be practicing this exercise three times within each of your days. You may incorporate this exercise at any given moment, for your eyes are open, and you are attentive to all those individuals around you and also any activity that you may be engaging, for you are tuning your consciousness more clearly. You are not drifting. You are not placing yourself into an altered state. Therefore, this exercise will not be interrupting of your normal activity.
“In this, incorporate one time for initiating this exercise within your evening time, while you are relaxed at your home, individually. Therefore, you may follow your directed “tuning in” to your attention channel by closing your eyes and allowing yourself to drift. In this, while you are allowing yourself to drift, you may incorporate this action briefly, only within a time element to be noticing those events that are occurring. This may be color flashes, it may be feelings, it may be scenes. You may incorporate visualizations. You may incorporate mental images, as you term these. You may find yourself incorporating thoughts “slinging” by you rapidly. Notice what occurs.
“Do not concentrate intensely upon the experience. It is only an exercise. It is unnecessary to be very serious and directed! You may incorporate this as fun, and it may be brief. It is not necessary for you to be setting aside hours of your time and very directedly concentrating on accomplishing! It is more important for you to be tuning consciously, eyes open, to the awareness that you are familiar with; for as you learn to be directed, and manipulating within that directedness, you shall also learn to be directing within alternate realities.
“I express to you that you may be manipulating within your clarity; for what you have experienced presently within this exercise is only noticing. As our week progresses and you are incorporating this exercise, you may attempt to manipulate these senses. Allow the clarity of your hearing, and then intentionally turn it off. Allow the clarity of your sense of smell, and then disengage. Allow yourselves the opportunity to view your own ability to manipulate your own consciousness and its functions; for in this, you may much more easily recognize how to be manipulating when encountering different events within alternate focuses.”
