Participants: Mary (Michael) and Jason (Spensar)
ELIAS: Good morning!
JASON: Hi, Elias!
ELIAS: (Laughs) Welcome, my friend. And what shall we discuss?
JASON: It’s good to speak to you again.
ELIAS: And you also. (Chuckles)
JASON: I wanted to ask you about some exercises or practices that I’ve recently been doing called “Open Focus,” which helps you relax and, from my understanding, widen your attention span or perspective.
ELIAS: Very well.
JASON: I wanted to get your perspective on that.
ELIAS: And what is the practice?
JASON: It basically involves visualizing or feeling space throughout the body, throughout the room, or all around you until your attention focus, which may be normally very narrowly drilled down, starts to relax and widen, and you begin to feel like just everything is wide open around you and peaceful, sort of relaxed.
ELIAS: A form of meditation.
JASON: Yeah, very similar.
ELIAS: And you are engaging this action for the purpose of…?
JASON: Relaxation, I guess deal with stress, relax stress, make things a little less effortful or more effortless.
ELIAS: Very well. And you have been engaging this activity for what time framework?
JASON: Maybe three weeks to a month.
ELIAS: Very well. And what do you notice?
JASON: (Laughs) That I’m more relaxed… If I notice that I’m tense, I have a practice that it’s very easy to relax in virtually all types of situations and sort of pull back from getting wrapped into things.
ELIAS: Therefore, you notice a benefit in what, specifically?
JASON: Less tension, less effort.
ELIAS: Those are general.
JASON: Okay, so specific. (Elias laughs) For example, being in work, because that would largely be where I develop a lot of tension and distraction and narrowness. Being able to relax in my office, being able to get things done easier with less trying to figure it out, more just letting it flow.
ELIAS: Excellent! And do you notice more of an ease in interactions with other individuals?
JASON: When I practice, that is. (Elias laughs) Obviously, I’m not every moment relaxed, and…
ELIAS: I am understanding, which is not necessary. How much time do you incorporate in this exercise daily?
JASON: I’m trying to incorporate more time. Now, part of it is devoted where you do specific exercises and that’s all that you do. It’s a sort of devoted time like meditation, and that may be anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and a half a day depending on what’s going on. And very frequently throughout the day I incorporate exercises that don’t necessarily take up a whole lot of time but just while I’m doing other activities.
ELIAS: Excellent! I would be very much encouraging of this type of activity. As I expressed, it is a variation, or a form, of meditation, and I am very much advocating of that type of action and exercise. It is very beneficial and lends to balancing, which creates tremendously more of an ease in whatever you are engaging. It also is very helpful in centering yourself.
Now, there is a difference between relaxing or being focused and being centered. These are three different actions. In combination with each other they are excellent, but I would express that the aspect of being centered is the one action that most individuals incorporate the most difficulty with. Mediation or any variation of meditation can be exceptionally helpful in encouraging you and influencing you to be more centered.
When you are relaxed, it allows your body consciousness to function more naturally, and when your body consciousness functions more naturally it allows you to be less scattered in relation to your thinking. Remember, your thinking is a mechanism that translates information for you, and the more relaxed you are, the less information your thinking must translate, and therefore it is less cluttered and you are clearer in relation to that function of yourself.
It also is helpful in focusing. Now, focusing is different. Focusing is how you direct your attention and not being scattered with your attention, which allows you to be much more efficient, for when you can focus your attention, it allows you to direct yourself in one stream, so to speak, at a time, and therefore allows you to accomplish much more in a much shorter volume of time. Therefore, obviously, you are more efficient when you are focused.
But being centered is different. Being centered is the action of being aware of yourself and how you are directing yourself in any moment. This is a very beneficial and effective expression to generate balance within yourself. It also allows you much greater empowerment, for you are genuinely directing when you are centered, and outside sources are much less bothersome in any capacity, for you are aware of that directing factor with yourself and what you are doing, how you are projecting energy.
And in that, in a manner of speaking it creates that sense of control, but not in a negative manner, in a manner that you are actually manipulating and directing everything you do and everything around you. And these types of exercises are excellent to be engaging to encourage those three expressions to be more in balance and for you to accomplish all three of those expressions of relaxing and being focused and being centered.
JASON: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
JASON: In one of the past transcripts or talks, or maybe more than one, I’ve heard you referring to the future, and you have talked about how one of the difficulties in people communicating with future focuses is that due to climate change, the land masses have changed. Is that correct?
ELIAS: In some situations.
JASON: Okay. Is this something that someone should not buy property by the ocean? (Both laugh)
ELIAS: Not necessarily, for I would express that in the time frameworks that I have addressed to that type of subject, generally speaking I am referring to future time frameworks that are in your terms considerably removed from you.
JASON: Okay. So the future can be different for each person?
ELIAS: Most definitely.
ELIAS: But in relation to your planet and land mass and weather patterns – although I will express that weather patterns are very conditional upon the individuals that occupy certain areas of your planet, for your weather patterns are very much connected to the mass energy in different areas – but, in relation to the planet itself and configurations of land and water, or even mountains, those types of situations and differences in them, yes they are already in motion, but I would express that in relation to changes, or significant changes, in those situations, the configuration of energy would incorporate a time framework of, in the least, 75 to 100 of your years. But yes, there are aspects that are also conditional upon the individual in relation to the configuration of certain areas.
JASON: Do I have any future-based focuses that would be interested in interacting with me?
ELIAS: (Pause) You do incorporate future focuses. As to would they be interested in interacting with you? Somewhat. I would express that there are groups of individuals that occupy future time frameworks that do incorporate an interest in this particular time framework of their history in relation to this Shift in consciousness and in relation to the experiences and the awareness of individuals participating in this Shift, which is a curiosity to some groups of individuals futurely. And yes, I would express that you do incorporate a focus that is a part of one of those groups. I would express that his interest in interaction with an actual individual fluctuates.
JASON: (Laughs) That does not surprise me, because my only…
ELIAS: (Laughs) He incorporates an interest in actual individuals, at times is more interested in subject matters or time frameworks or mass expressions; it varies.
JASON: Okay. Another question: Some meditation teachers that I’ve heard from have claimed – and I can provide names if it’s helpful – have claimed that they can see or feel others’ thoughts, sort of telepathy. Is that true? I don’t mean this for a specific person but that there are meditation teachers out there that are experiencing this.
ELIAS: Other thoughts in relation to individuals, or mass expressions?
JASON: I think they were referring to other individuals’ thoughts. I’ve heard that be claimed.
ELIAS: Yes, it is possible.
Thought is merely a specific configuration of energy.
ELIAS: Now; I will express to you that in the manner that thought is generated, it requires more energy to actually tap into a thought process of an individual, but yes, it can be done if an individual is concentrated in that direction and incorporates enough curiosity to motivate them in that direction. I would express, generally speaking, that the reason nonphysical essences do not generally tap into individual thought processes, including myself, is that it does require much more energy and it is not necessary.
But within physical focus, I am understanding the curiosity and the attraction to that type of action, and yes, it can be accomplished. It requires being considerably accomplished in relation to different methods of meditation in which you are expressing a clarity and are very much focused in attention in a specific direction of energy, or would require being specifically focused upon the energy configuration of thought, but yes, it is most definitely an action that can be accomplished.
JASON: Okay. And is it just a further development or refinement of generally seeing energy and perceiving other people’s projection of energy?
Along those lines, there are writings – and I’m speaking specifically of Tibetan writings – that claim that some of the meditation teachers there in the past were able to fly and imprint their hands into stone.
JASON: Is that an exaggeration, or is that an actual …?
ELIAS: No, it is not an exaggeration. It is correct.
JASON: Are there people who can do that today?
JASON: Okay. And I would assume that is again advanced.
ELIAS: I would express that you may be amazed at what an individual can accomplish depending on how they are directing themselves.
These are actions that individuals accomplish not with respect to that being a goal. Let me explain: These individuals incorporate very strong religious beliefs but that they use those religious beliefs in a manner to be exceptionally beneficial and empowering. These are tremendous examples – to ANY individual – of the point of not opposing your own belief systems, that they are not your enemy and that in this, they are part of your reality and that they can be actually used and manipulated in a manner to tremendously empower you as an individual and allow you to express abilities that most individuals do no not allow themselves.
I have expressed information previously in relation to the action of levitating or even flying, –
JASON: Yes, I know where those transcripts are.
ELIAS: – that the key aspect is to not be fighting with or opposing your belief in relation to gravity. There is an acknowledgement of that belief of gravity but a choice to be expressing different influences of that belief and allowing oneself to manipulate their energy in a manner that allows them to interpret incorporate that action of flying or levitating.
Let me express to you, my friend: You incorporate this belief in gravity, yet birds fly. They are not tethered to the ground. You incorporate this belief of gravity, yet jets fly, and they incorporate extreme weight, but they fly. In this, in ratio you incorporate exceptionally little weight in comparison to a plane, but your belief in gravity is being expressed in relation to certain influences that will not allow you to untether yourself from the ground.
And, the influence of that belief, or the influence that is the most commonly expressed, influences you in an absolute either-or direction, which in actuality is not even logical, for the either-or direction is either you are tethered to the ground and walk upon the ground, OR you are not tethered and you would not be able to walk upon the ground. But in actuality, birds fly and they also walk, and so could you.
JASON: Any way of working with this belief, or the influence of that belief?
ELIAS: The first step is acknowledging that it exists and that you express it. That is the first step, is the recognition and the acknowledgement that you do express it. Once you genuinely acknowledge that, it becomes less important. With it being less important, you are freer to explore other influences of the belief, or other actions, that it is not necessary for you to incorporate hollow bones to levitate or to fly; that weight is also not a factor; that it is not necessary for you to incorporate wings as a factor either. Feathers are not necessary. In this, it would be more a matter of allowing yourself to explore other animals that incorporate actions of flying without feathers, without wings, such as there are certain species of primates that fly. They do not fly extensive distances, but they do fly. There are also very common animals – squirrels – that actually fly; and in this, there are also fish that fly.
JASON: Now, you’re not referring just to the momentum, are you?
ELIAS: No. No, I am not, for it is not necessarily a matter of momentum. It is a matter of how they allow themselves to incorporate their body in relation to air currents.
ELIAS: In this, they use the air. I would express, for the most part the only expression that you use the air for is breathing. You do not even consider using air.
JASON: Now, would it have to be a tornado for me to fly? (Laughs)
ELIAS: No! I would express that there is no tornado that is occurring to allow the primate to fly; it merely does it.
ELIAS: And that, in your estimation, would be closer to your configuration of body consciousness than a fish or a squirrel. And some of these primates are not small. There are certain lemurs that are of significant weight that incorporate this action. There are also certain primates in the Amazon that also incorporate this action and express a considerable weight and size; therefore, they are not small. In this, they would actually be more comparable to the configuration of a human body – not quite as large, but it matters not, for it is not the size or the weight that is the factor; it is the configuration of the energy and using the air in its natural currents to be supportive. You allow that with water.
This is another factor: It is a matter of what you believe. Remember, believing is merely another word for trusting, and in that, you believe that water, being denser than air, incorporates the ability to support you and that the currents of water incorporate the ability to move you. Air incorporates currents also, and incorporates the same ability to support as water.
JASON: Interesting! I’ll explore that.
ELIAS: Very well!
JASON: When I met my wife for the first time, I felt the sense of recognition that she was someone I just knew was right for me or someone that I just felt a connection [with]. Is that because of earlier focuses together, or other focuses or… ?
ELIAS: Yes. And let me express to you, my friend, an acknowledgement, for there are many individuals that express, “Is that merely because we share other focuses?” – in a manner of speaking discounting that factor, but that factor is significantly large. For if you consider your lifetime now and how close or how bonded you can be to an individual in this lifetime, and how significant that relationship is, if you multiply that and recognize that you may incorporate 60 to 100 to 1000 of those types of intimate relationships, that creates a significant connection between individuals that carries from one focus to another. You carry that memory.
JASON: Mm-hm. And speaking of focuses, I to date have not had any success in… Well, I shouldn’t say any… Is there a particular focus of mine if I wanted to not necessarily make contact but begin to explore the multi-focused dimensionality or whatever of existence? Is there is a particular focus that might be easier for me?
ELIAS: Yes. I would express that generally speaking, the easiest focuses to connect to are either the focuses that are closest in time to yourself or that are closest in energy and expressions to yourself.
Now; I will offer to you one that is closest in time, which also incorporates your partner (chuckles) – not surprisingly. In this focus the time framework would be centrally within your 1920s and ‘30s.
JASON: 1920s and ‘30s.
ELIAS: That would be the central time framework of the lifetime, so to speak. In this, as an adult you incorporated the profession of a shopkeeper, but you incorporated the passion of playing the trumpet.
JASON: The trumpet?
ELIAS: Yes. In this, I would express that you did not achieve fame in that focus, but you did enjoy the music considerably, and you did enjoy the trumpet considerably. The shop that you incorporated was a type of… Hardware was the main subject of what was sold in this shop. You incorporated a very strong relationship with your current partner. In that focus you were not partners, you were siblings, and your partner was a younger sister, very supportive. You incorporated a very close relationship. Each of you married briefly and only once, and subsequent to each of those relationships, you chose to not incorporate those types of relationships again and you focused upon your relationship with each other in a type of partnership but maintaining that sibling relationship.
JASON: Okay. That’s something I can explore.
ELIAS: I would express that the physical location of that focus was what you would term to be just outside of the city of Chicago.
JASON: Of Chicago? Was that Chicago that you said?
JASON: Okay. I’m curious if… Whenever I go in the ocean, I tend to think about sharks. (Both laugh) So I’m curious if there was maybe any reason outside of movies that I’ve seen growing up for this, and also if you had any advice on how to best avoid creating an actual encounter with a shark? (Laughs)
ELIAS: (Laughs) Yes. I would express that yes, you have experienced encounters with sharks previously in other focuses. I would also express to you that it is highly unlikely that you would present that to yourself in this focus, although you increase the likelihood of that the more you express fear and concentration upon it, but what I would express to you is very simple and effective information, that it is definitely not important for you to concern yourself with sharks, for they definitely do not concern themselves with you.
ELIAS: (Laughs) I would express for the most part, sharks are considerably uninterested in your species, and I would also express that contrary to popular belief concerning these particular animals, in relation to experience and their communications with each other, most of them incorporate a significant wariness and caution in relation to humans. They do not trust you more than you do not trust them.
JASON: Probably for good reason.
ELIAS: I would agree. (Laughs)
JASON: Okay, so another subject matter is – and this is more fun stuff – have UFOs actually disabled nuclear missiles as is claimed by certain individuals?
ELIAS: No. I would express –
JASON: Another thing that I think these individuals claim is that UFOs would prevent a nuclear war from occurring if one of the countries that had nuclear missiles tried to start one.
ELIAS: And I would disagree with that also.
ELIAS: I would express that if you chose to engage a nuclear war you would do it, and no extraterrestrial would interfere and stop it. I would also express that if you recall or you investigate what I have expressed in relation to this subject of extraterrestrials, the interactions that have occurred are very real in your reality, but they are also bleed-throughs of other-dimensional beings that are actually other-dimensional focuses of yourselves. They are not actually other beings within your own universe, your own physical dimension.
Now; I would express, as I have previously, yes, other beings do exist within your physical reality, within your physical universe. Have they actually contacted or encountered you to this point? No. Are they tremendously more advanced than are you as beings or as species? Not necessarily. I would express that you as a species, as beings, are moving very close to expressing the technological capability of exploring much more of your universe, and there are other beings that are also, but you are almost on a par.
JASON: Okay. How do I reconcile that with, for example, some individuals that believe, or I think there’s even videos of strange light buzzing past missiles or around missiles, and also other channels that claim… ?
ELIAS: I am not expressing that encounters have not occurred; they have.
ELIAS: I am not expressing that what you term to be aliens do not exist. I would not express that; they do, and you have generated encounters, and you have documentation and experiences. In this, I would not dispute that. What I am expressing is a distinction that they are other-dimensional.
JASON: Other-dimensional versions.
ELIAS: And they bleed through. And the reason they bleed through is that you are open to that action, and therefore, that creates a mutual curiosity, but they are also other focuses of yourselves.
JASON: Okay, let me rephrase the question then. Are there other focuses of ourselves from other dimensions that have disabled nuclear missiles?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, there can be bleed-throughs, and there can even be imprints from other-dimensional expressions and energies, but the energies and the expressions and the actions of the movements of other dimensions do not fit within your own, just as yours do not fit within their dimension. And therefore, there are some limited actions that can be affected, but that type of action would require considerable coordination, in a matter of speaking.
JASON: When other channels speak, do they sometimes claim that certain things are occurring in our reality that are actually occurring in another reality? I know that’s a very broad question, but I … specifically about this issue.
ELIAS: Yes, at times.
JASON: Okay. Another thing that someone else has claimed is that the government, along with private contractors, are working on – and I know that you’ve talked a little bit about the Philadelphia experiment and a continuation of, I think, that work in that area – that they’re actually working on time travel and sending people forward in time. Is that true?
ELIAS: It is a curiosity. I would express yes, there is a curiosity, and I would also express that in that curiosity there are individuals that explore the subject. I would also express that they are no more successful than yourself. (Both laugh) Therefore no, they are not actually sending individuals into the future, but yes, there is a curiosity with the subject, and there is an exploration of the subject being approached in a mathematical capacity, which may not always afford them as much success. (Laughs)
JASON: Is any of this information – and again this is coming from other sources where they say, “Well, I can’t provide that information because it’s dangerous.” (Elias laughs) “There’s someone out there that is going to pick up on that and hunt you down.” (Elias laughs) I would assume that is it an exaggeration.
ELIAS: I would express that that is very likely an influence of the channel. I would express that that type of expression is generally an influence of the physically focused individual that is participating with the energy exchange and is generating an interjection of their own beliefs or hesitations or fears.
JASON: That makes sense.
ELIAS: I would express that in actuality, there is no information that you could request that would potentially be dangerous to you unless you chose to configure it in that matter.
[The timer for the end of the session rings]
JASON: Okay. That makes sense. Is that your timer?
JASON: Okay. Well, thank you very much. It was good talking to you, Elias.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend, and I shall be anticipating our next meeting and more of your interesting questions. (Laughs)
JASON: It’s fun. Thank you.
ELIAS: I express tremendous encouragement to you, my friend, and an acknowledgement of your success in your meditation.
JASON: Thank you.
ELIAS: To you in tremendous affection and in great lovingness, au revoir.
(Elias departs after 59 minutes)
