ELIAS: Good day!
VERONICA: Good day, Elias.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) Welcome, my friend. I shall open the floor to all of you and allow you to choose the subjects that we will discuss.
ELIAS: In what capacity?
VERONICA: Well, the use of our energy, I believe, along with trust, is magical. It is a magical quality that we possess. The word magic has come up quite often for me in the last two or three weeks, and along with regeneration, which is an appropriate topic for me, I would like to use the magic for a bladder condition. So, I wanted to confer with you on using an assortment of modalities which together would make magic.
ELIAS: And what modalities are you using or considering?
VERONICA: Well, the healing energy of Reiki, together with crystals. I would like to use sound—sound therapy—a scent; my energy center, which I think would be orange. And would lighting a candle help in this situation? I mean, this is what the folks around me suggest, but I don’t know whether that’s ever effective unless it’s used with intention.
ELIAS: I agree. I would say to you that if you WANT to include a candle, if you want to use that as a focal point, you certainly can. Is it necessary? No. But you could incorporate a candle if you were so choosing, if you want to. If it aids you in focusing by creating something that you can focus on and focus your senses on and pay attention to, then by all means you could include a candle.
I would say, what type of sound inclusion are you considering?
VERONICA: I have two crystal bowls, and I think they are calibrated to my notes, F sharp and C. But I don’t know if that’s correct, if that is so. I‘m thinking if it would help, I would purchase tuning forks. I’ve been listening to a seminar on sound healing, and I heard there’s a machine which emanates all these frequencies, and one or two treatments and supposedly there's improvement. But I don’t know about that. I just thought something that is at my fingertips, which could be tuning forks, either those that I have or… There's a fellow, John Beaulieu, who’s been working with sound frequencies in tuning forks for many, many years. So, I could investigate that area, and then crystal and color, and the orange energy center?
VERONICA: Controlling the bladder?
VERONICA: Excuse me?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
VERONICA: Yes? And what about a scent? Would that be helpful? It’s like, you know, I’m thinking maybe if I douse myself with all these tools, all these modalities, I will perform the magic.
ELIAS: You can. In relation to a scent, I would say in association with what you want to do in affecting the bladder, I would say either you could use—EITHER—eucalyptus or almond.
VERONICA: Ah. Mm-hm. Mm-hm. And to just sniff it, or massage the area?
ELIAS: No, you don’t have to. No. You don’t have to incorporate any contact, actually. You can use it in the capacity of perhaps placing it in a diffuser or a burner that would generate the aroma in the room. That would be enough. You don’t have to be directly inhaling it or using it in direct contact with your body.
VERONICA: I see.
ELIAS: That isn’t necessary.
VERONICA: Uh-huh. And I did mention sound, but I went off on a tangent.
ELIAS: No, I would agree with you in relation to sound, that you could investigate tuning forks. And there are other individuals in this forum that also engage the forks that you can investigate that, and that may be helpful to you. They may also offer some information to you in relation to using them. But yes, using sound vibration in relation to the forks can be definitely helpful.
VERONICA: Mm-hm. Mm-hm. And then for—
ELIAS: And the bowls that you have, I would say yes, you are correct, that they are calibrated to those particular notes, those vibrational qualities, F sharp and C. Therefore, yes, that is correct, and you can use those also.
VERONICA: Elias, this is my last question with regard to this. The doctor has offered physical therapy or neural stimulation to the area. Would either of these two modalities together with my mental focus, would it be too much?
VERONICA: Oh. Okay. Hm. That’s good.
ELIAS: Because you can use them all in conjunction with each other, if you are so choosing, and all of them merely would be enhancing each other.
VERONICA: Uh-huh. Would there be any advantage to the physical therapy over the neural stimulation?
ELIAS: I would say that that is simply an individual preference.
VERONICA: Oh. Good. Oh, thank you. Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
VERONICA: And it would not be too much concentration?
ELIAS: No, not if you are engaging it at specific times, that if you are engaging, let us say, the physical therapy or even the neural transmissions, you would be generating certain appointments to do that. You would be doing it at designated time frameworks. And in those time frameworks, you could incorporate the other actions also, in the surrounding time, and that would be adequate. And I wouldn’t suggest that you do it continuously. I wouldn’t suggest that you do it for long periods of time. But if you aren’t engaging it continuously, then I would say that no, it wouldn’t be too much or too much concentration.
Now, when you aren’t actually physically engaging any of these actions, then I would also encourage you not to be concentrating on it, because that would be the allowance of the magic.
VERONICA: Mm-hm. I see. Yes. All right. Well, I’m really looking forward to it. (Both laugh) It’s very exciting to me. It's quite magical, you know? It would just be wonderful.
ELIAS: And I would be tremendously encouraging you and offering my energy in helpfulness also.
VERONICA: Oh, thank you. Thank you so much. Okay. Thank you. We’re off to a wonderful start. (Elias laughs) Thank you. Thank you, Elias.
CHRISTOPH: Hello, Elias.
CHRISTOPH: I would like to continue the discussion about regeneration that you started with Lyla. Is it okay?
CHRISTOPH: So, my question would be if are there objective actions or substances that can facilitate the movement of stuck material from the right to the left side of the brain? And I’m asking this because when I took the substance lion’s mane mushroom powder, I saw a high number of flashes on the left side of my visual field, unusually. And you stated that response was the creation of new brain grooves. And I also felt that I have more clarity in time frames when I take that product or substance, and I am less moody. So, was that a coincidence, or does lion’s mane mushroom have properties that can be beneficial in regards to regeneration and movement in the brain?
ELIAS: It can be, but I would also express that it may not necessarily be successful with everyone. I would say that some individuals are more inclined than others, and therefore I would also say some individuals are more open to the usage or the incorporation of certain substances, and therefore that would be successful. But it wouldn’t be a blanket statement that it would be successful for everyone. That would not necessarily be accurate. But yes, I would definitely acknowledge YOUR experience with it and that it has been successful with you, and it would be with many people. I merely would stipulate that it isn’t something that would necessarily be successful with everyone.
CHRISTOPH: And are there any other objective actions, or is there a substance that you could recommend that could facilitate that movement in the brain? Because I think I can target the subjective in hypnosis. That’s what I’m doing, and instructing.
ELIAS: I agree. I definitely agree with those modalities. What I would also express is there are certain vibrational qualities or actions that individuals can do.
Now, with these actions, that would be something that anyone can do. And in that, actually I discussed this some time ago with Zacharie in relation to certain actions of tapping on your body in different areas, different places. You can do that, and that actually is another method that aids in this action. It aids in that transference from the right hemisphere to the left hemisphere of the brain.
I have also expressed to individuals that you can do that with your fingertips, with your thumb and your middle finger. You can be moving your fingertips together, opening, closing, opening, closing, and do that somewhat rapidly, alternating right and left hands, not doing both at the same time, not doing both together but alternating right and left, right and left. That also generates a signal in relation to your physical brain in which that encourages the movement from the right to the left hemisphere in your brain, and it encourages that action of creating new grooves.
I would also express that you could incorporate actual quartz crystals – not any other specific type of crystals or stones, but simple quartz crystals – because they are conduits. And in that, you could place the quartz crystal in one hand and do the tapping action with your other hand, and the quartz crystal would amplify that. It would serve as a conduit in channeling the energy in a capacity that it also is helping to generate that balance and, in a manner of speaking, free any type of stuck energy, energy that is being held in a particular area that you want to dislodge, in a manner of speaking. That would be helpful.
The tapping action, you can do this tapping action in relation to different areas of your body consciousness, but ultimately what it does is it creates certain signals in relation to your brain, because your physical brain doesn’t think; that isn’t what creates thinking, and therefore in this, what your physical brain is accustomed to are certain repetitive actions or certain repetitive stimuli. Therefore, it could be electrical vibrations, it can be tapping sensations that you generate with your fingertips in different areas of your body consciousness. Even sound, in relation to certain types of what you would think of background sounds that would be simulating rain, perhaps, in a rhythmic expression—that type of multiple drippings of water with rain that creates a rhythmic type of sound, that can also be helpful. And you can artificially create these sounds. Other than that type of sound, it could be a type of light drumming sound.
Now, once again I would express that that isn’t necessarily successful with everyone, because people are different and not everyone tolerates sound in that capacity. Some individuals actually become agitated or irritated with certain repetitious sounds. Therefore, it is a matter of experimenting with what is comfortable for you and what you can tolerate, because if certain sounds are irritating to an individual, that definitely won’t be successful in accomplishing the goal to be generating that balance. In this, I would also express that generally speaking, any type of rhythmic action can also be helpful.
Now; that doesn’t mean rhythmic action such as repeatedly tapping a pencil. That is different. When individuals do actions such as that, or tapping your foot continuously and repeatedly, those are actually actions that are automatically produced from some aspect of anxiety, and therefore those are not the type of repetitive actions or sounds that I am speaking of.
In this, it is a matter of being very attuned to your body, but not necessarily concentrating on any one part of your body, because you want to be engaging the whole. Your body knows what to do, and your objective awareness isn’t actually designed to be instructing it. It isn’t that it CAN’T instruct it, but that isn’t its main function. And therefore, it is a matter of more trusting that your body knows what to do. It knows how to function properly, and in the natural action of regeneration it also knows how to create those new grooves in the actual physical brain. It doesn’t have to be instructed to do that.
Therefore, objectively what you are doing is you are addressing to perception. This is the reason that all of these different activities or all of these different expressions and methods are, in a manner of speaking, ritualistically what you do to be changing your perception, because what you are doing is—let us take the tapping as an example. You may be tapping on the back of your hand, or you may be tapping on your collarbone, or you may be tapping on your temple or the top of your head. Now, what you are doing in that is you are engaging an action to alter your perception, because this is what the objective awareness is involved with: perception, and expressing perception.
When you are doing this action of tapping, you are concentrating on the action, and you are actually concentrating on trusting your body to do whatever is necessary. It allows you to relax and stop thinking about directing. And therefore, you are putting into play in a balanced manner the objective and the subjective awareness in their natural functions—objective being busy functioning with the perception, subjective being busy functioning with instructing the body consciousness. But they are working in harmony with each other.
Are you understanding?
CHRISTOPH: Yes, very much.
CHRISTOPH: Just one more thing. Can the objective action of inversions of the body, such as headstands or shoulder stands, have a beneficial effect on regeneration? I'm asking this as you recommended it in the past to me as a method to redistribute energy from the red and orange center towards the head. So, can it also have a beneficial effect in regards to that movement in the brain?
ELIAS: Yes. Now, I would say in relation to this – and I have recently expressed this with another individual also with this same question – and what I would say to you is yes, inversion can be helpful and it can be successful. I would definitely express to most individuals to be doing that in small increments. I would express that some individuals, such as yourself – and there are other individuals that are more versed and experienced in relation to different yoga practices – in that, these individuals may have the ability to engage that inversion actions for longer periods of time. But I would suggest for most individuals that they engage that, if they are so choosing to engage it, for very brief time frameworks and not necessarily COMPLETELY inverted, not necessarily in a COMPLETELY opposite vertical direction, but somewhat at an angle, to not be expressing pressure, because the body consciousness is unaccustomed to that position. But it definitely can be helpful, yes.
CHRISTOPH: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
GREG: Elias? Hello?
GREG: Oh. Hello. Last time you told me my essence name was Kaffe. And I wonder what my essence family, my orientation, and I guess my overall purpose for this focus is?
ELIAS: First of all, what is your impression as to your essence families? And in relation to what you term to be purpose, it isn’t actually a purpose; it is an intent. And in that, what I would say to you is what I express to everyone. First, I would very much encourage you to be evaluating that, and how you do that is you observe the entirety of your life. Not simply now—definitely not only now, but the entirety of your life, and to identify what the theme in your experiences has been. That will express what your intent is in this focus.
And once YOU have evaluated in that direction, then you can present that to myself and I will help you identify it or define it specifically. But there is a definite reason that I express this. It is important that you are making that connection yourself first, because if I am simply expressing what your intent is and you haven’t connected that with yourself first, it… (Sighs) it creates a situation in which it is actually more difficult for you to actually connect with your intent, because you didn’t do it to begin with.
But in the meantime, what would your impression be in relation to your essence family and your alignment?
GREG: The alignment, I’ve always thought Sumari.
ELIAS: As belonging?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
GREG: Okay. And orientation, I couldn’t tell you. (Laughs)
ELIAS: I would say, express being quiet momentarily. You don’t have to have information; your impressions will give you the information. Therefore, in this moment, take a breath and allow yourself to calmly not be thinking and allow an impression. And what would it be?
GREG: What are they again?
GREG: What are the orientations again?
ELIAS: The orientations are common, intermediate and soft. What resonates?
ELIAS: You are correct. Congratulations!
GREG: Okay. (Elias laughs) And one other quick question. I need some [audio cut off] life here. So, I’m trying to get married, create children, start a family, and it seems that I’m actually generating a lot of different avenues in that area. And so, I met a woman. We have great chemistry. And I don’t know if that is the path. How do you know what the correct path is? It seems like I’ve been dreaming a lot of just children, but I don’t know what path to take to get to this idea I have.
ELIAS: I would say to you, my friend, that that is an excellent question. I have addressed this previously, but I will use this opportunity to address it again. And in that, how do you know what is the correct direction for you? What I would say to you is don’t only follow the feelings.
If you are attracted to another individual, and you think that you have, as you expressed, good chemistry with that individual or you seem to fit with that individual, put away your criteria list of what you want in another individual, what you want in a partner; put that away. Then give yourself a time framework to engage with the other individual, be present with them, enjoy them, but observe – genuinely observe. Pay attention and observe what the other individual naturally does, how they naturally express themselves, how do they naturally interact – not only with you, but with other individuals also. Without thinking about or engaging specific subjects, observe the other individual in relation to what they naturally do, and in that, you can evaluate what is important to them. How they act, what they do will reflect what is important to them and what isn’t important to them. And in that, you can evaluate how those subjects, how those expressions, how those qualities match with you.
Now, I don’t mean “match” in the sense of being the same. At times, some expressions, some pieces WILL be very similar, but not necessarily in relation to matching being the same, but matching in a complement, matching in that the manner in which the other individual expresses and behaves flows with how YOU express and behave, even if they are different.
There are many times that individuals express the idea that opposites attract. It isn’t necessarily that opposites per se attract, but that there are differences in how people express themselves and how they behave that actually do complement each other, that wouldn’t necessarily complement each other if they were exactly the same or if they were considerably similar. Sometimes similarities create friction. Sometimes they create a flow, but it is a matter of allowing yourself to observe and therefore recognize how you flow with the other individual and how they flow with you in a natural capacity in what you do.
And in that, gauge it by what you do on a daily basis, not in relation to what you think of as important subjects or large subjects—not in relation to that, but in relation to how you each express yourselves on a daily basis—because, my friend, THOSE are the actions and the behaviors that either form and develop a lasting relationship or break one. It isn’t generally those subjects that you think of that are so important or so big, in your terms. It is the mundane, everyday actions that you engage with other individuals: how they speak, how they walk, how they interact with other individuals. How do they listen, or how do they NOT listen, on a daily basis in relation to mundane conversations? What is important to them? What is important to YOU? And do they honor what is important to you and do you honor what is important to them, or do you become annoyed and irritated?
And you won’t know that unless you are giving yourself that time to genuinely observe, because generally speaking, most individuals, I would say within a time framework of approximately six to eight months in engaging with each other, they interact differently.
Now, that doesn’t mean that their genuine self doesn’t show through; it will, but you have to look for it, because generally within a certain time framework of the beginning of a relationship, individuals are uncertain as to how they fit, what is important to the other person, what is acceptable, what isn’t acceptable. Therefore, you are all, in a manner of speaking, feeling your way into the waters. And in that, it isn’t necessarily how you will each actually present yourselves to each other and behave with each other once you have some answered questions and once you feel more comfortable with the other individual and you aren’t feeling out the situation as much any longer. Then your behaviors change, and they move more in the direction of what is natural for you.
And in that, you don’t have to wait for that time framework to assess those natural behaviors with another individual, but you do have to pay attention. You do have to observe and not follow the feelings, because that clouds your vision.
Now, I am not saying to you not to allow yourself to feel, especially if you are attracted to another individual and you like them. It feels good to interact with another individual in that capacity, and I am not expressing to you to deny yourself that – but not to follow it, not to make that your most important criteria in association with the relationship, but to rather be observing and make THAT the most important piece for a time framework in order for you to evaluate are you genuinely a complement to this other individual and are they genuinely a complement to you. And to look at it from both angles, not simply from the angle of is the other individual a complement to you. Are you also a complement to them?
And in that, my friend, all of the subjects that you think of as being the BIG subjects—underlining "big," per se—such as family, children, careers, homes, where to live. Those questions, those subjects will likely simply unfold in a natural capacity and likely in the capacity that you want them to if you are actually engaging in a relationship that is a complement in both directions.
GREG: Okay. Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
GREG: Real quick. Just to know, are kids coming my way, what’s the time framework in that?
GREG: Are kids coming my way, and what’s the time framework?
ELIAS: (Laughs) I would say in relation to is that a potential coming your way, that I would say is a very strong potential. As to time framework, that is a crystal ball question, my friend, and that is YOUR choice.
GREG: Ah. I gotcha. Thank you very, very much.
ELIAS: (Laughs) You are very welcome. (Chuckles)
VAL: This is Val. I’ve got a question.
VAL: Thank you. I have a question about regeneration.
VAL: If it applies to pyramid energy.
ELIAS: Very well.
VAL: Most specifically, the Bosnian pyramid complex, and kind of… obviously, how it affects regeneration, and what are the specific ingredients of that energy that facilitate regeneration? I know we spoke before about how pyramid energy has a tendency to bring one back to the natural state, or materials back to the natural state, and I have an idea that has a lot to do with it, but I would like your take on it.
ELIAS: I would agree. I would first express that perhaps you also can extend some of your knowledge and your experience with vibrations and tuning forks to our other member of this group. That may be helpful to her.
ELIAS: But in relation to the pyramids and the healing or regenerating process and incorporating other factors, such as vibrational qualities through tones and even the forks, I would say that first of all it would be a matter of being in that physical location and incorporating the forks in experimenting with different vibrational qualities and genuinely allowing yourself to feel what those vibrational qualities are doing.
Now, you will know, as you are already aware, that if the tone, if the vibrational quality is in harmony with you and if it is being successful, you will feel a type of buzzing—
ELIAS: — in your body. You feel that vibrational quality happening in your body in which you feel your body begin to buzz. Now, that is your indicator that that is a correct tone in relation to not only your body, but the environment of the pyramid, that the pyramid is actually connecting with that particular tone and then that is connecting with you, with your body. That is the reason that I express that it would be important initially—initially—to actually be there at the pyramid, therefore engaging the forks at the pyramid—
ELIAS: — to experience that. Then once you have experienced that, once you have assessed which vibrational qualities are intuned with pyramid and intuned with you, then you can recreate that away from the pyramid and at other times, because the pyramid will have infused that quality, that vibrational tone, into that fork and into your body.
ELIAS: Therefore, it wouldn’t be necessary to be present at the pyramid any longer other than that initial experience. Once you have that energy, once you have connected with that energy, it remains with you regardless of where you are physically.
ELIAS: And I would express that definitely that can be instrumental in relation to regeneration. It definitely incorporates a healing property. And in that healing property, what actually occurs, as I was expressing with Lyla, in this it facilitates that action of dislodging some associations from the right hemisphere of the brain into the left hemisphere of the brain. The vibrational quality is the main influence in that.
This is the reason that I would also express that in other situations, as I have incorporated in this conversation, that tapping or electrical vibrations in your hands alternating can be very instrumental in this action, because it sends signals to your physical brain, which dislodges that energy, and you don’t have to be thinking about it.
But I would say that if you are engaging in this action and you have a clear intention – or, actually I would say it doesn’t even have to be tremendously clear. It will be faster if you are clear, but even if you aren’t, it will be successful anyway. That if you express with yourself a specific intention or a specific subject that you want to address to—not simply a vague expression of “I want to be incorporating regeneration,” but more specifically, let us say that you have identified some expression or some action and some behavior that you have that you are aware is hindering that action of regeneration, or expressing partially in that type of direction. You may not have all of the clarity in relation to what you might be engaging automatically in behavior or actions that can be hindering or blocking that expression of regeneration. If you express that, and then you are tuning yourself to the pyramid, to the fork, and generating that vibrational connection, if you are very clear and specific it can alter that immediately.
ELIAS: If you aren’t entirely clear, it will still be successful, but it may incorporate perhaps a few days or a week, perhaps even up to ten days for it to be entirely successful. But even in that, that is a relatively very short time framework to be actually altering some expression that may be very ingrained in you.
VAL: Yes. That is fascinating. You know, I’m very, very sensitive to that energy, and as a rule, especially when I go into the Ravne tunnels to mediate, my whole body buzzes.
VAL: Considerably. Yes. So, this is really interesting. I would like to move some energy from the right hemisphere to the left, because I most recently, since I returned from Turkey I have that buzzing in the right brain. Would this facilitate that?
ELIAS: Yes. And that action, that experience that you are having, that is the indicator that there is held energy. What I would say is, that is actually excellent. I recognize that it can be considerably annoying, but it is actually excellent because that actually indicates that you have targeted some areas of held energy and that you have targeted some specific associations.
ELIAS: And that in that they are being addressed to and that you are in process in dislodging that energy. That is actually excellent, that you are creating that and can be objectively aware of it.
VAL: And you are involved in helping me move that energy also. Is that correct?
ELIAS: Most definitely. Yes.
VAL: Well, I can feel you a lot. So, I appreciate that answer to that question. That’s really actually exciting.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Congratulations!
VAL: Thank you. I look forward to the trip, and maybe I’ll report back to you.
ELIAS: Excellent! Excellent.
VAL: Thank you very much, Elias.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend.
VERONICA: Excuse me, Elias?
VERONICA: This is Veronica. With regard to using the pyramid and the crystal with energy, would a pyramid which we have constructed, like say I have a five-foot pyramid made of copper, if I were to sit in there with my crystals, would some of the principles that you have just spoken about, would they work in this pyramid structure that I have?
Now, let me also express to you, another factor, which this is an encouraging factor that you can engage. Anyone that has actually visited any of the physical pyramids in different parts of the world, these energy vortexes, anyone that has actually, physically visited them, they carry that energy with them when they leave. And if you actually simply meet with them in physical proximity and touch each other, physically touch each other, that energy is transmitted.
VERONICA: Oh. Fascinating!
ELIAS: Therefore, I would express to any of you that have actually physically engaged and visited any of the pyramids throughout your world, you transfer that energy, you transmit that energy to anyone that you actually physically touch.
VERONICA: Oh! Hm.
ELIAS: Which, if you were to engage any of these individuals, let us say hypothetically if you were to be involved with our upcoming group interaction and if any individual has visited any of these pyramids and you connect with them, you physically engage with them, all that is necessary is for one of these individuals to touch you, and you then will carry that energy back to your pyramid and it will enhance it.
VERONICA: Uh-huh. I was in Egypt many years ago and I visited the pyramids. So, that… you are saying that that energy is still within me and I can transmit the energy which is in me to the pyramid which I purchased from someone?
ELIAS: Yes! And you can transfer that energy to any and every individual that you physically touch.
VERONICA: Oh. Fascinating.
ELIAS: And you can use that energy in your pyramid, if you are so choosing.
VERONICA: Mm-hm. And could I transfer that pyramid energy to minerals, like say an amethyst pyramid, a small pyramid which we might wear as a piece of jewelry?
ELIAS: It isn’t necessary.
VERONICA: Okay. But if someone were desirous of that?
VERONICA: I could use that principle.
VERONICA: Wonderful. Oh! Oh! We were talking about magic. It is so magical. It’s wonderful. Thank you.
ELIAS: (Laughs) I would agree. That IS magical.
VERONICA: Oh, thank you. Thank you so much for sharing that.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
BRIGITT: Hi Elias!
BRIGITT: Thank you. I have a question about what we call visual migraines. Sometimes they occur on the right side of my head. It’s where I have the zigzag lines in the vision and part of the vision is blocked. Not all of it, but it’s just… they’re zig-zaggy and seem to have an electrical quality and they rotate around a little bit. Do they have something to do with the right brain, holding energy in the right side of the brain?
ELIAS: Yes. Actually, that is more accurately expressed as an ocular stroke.
ELIAS: But they are not actually harmful or permanent. It doesn’t do damage to your eyes or to your actual brain. But I would express yes, that when you have a considerable held energy at any given point in time and that energy being held in the right brain, yes, that very easily can create that situation, that expression.
Let me also express once again, once you incorporate that experience, it is very likely that you will generate it repeatedly, but only in time frameworks in which you are either overwhelmed or you are considerably tired or you are holding a considerable amount of energy in that right hemisphere of your brain; yes.
BRIGITT: Is there anything that can be done? Like immediately, to massage it or—
ELIAS: Yes. Yes.
BRIGITT: I normally just wait it out, but…
ELIAS: Yes, you can. You can engage the action of closing your eyes and incorporating, I would say, two to three minutes in which you are generating a very intentional relaxation and targeting your head and your eyes specifically in that relaxation—genuinely relaxing your head and your eyes, your facial muscles in your cheeks and around your eyes, and allowing yourself to genuinely, genuinely incorporate that relaxation. That generally will stop the action.
BRIGITT: Okay, thank you!
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
BRIGITT: I will take that to heart. (Elias laughs)
Well, since no one has chimed in there, can you let me know what would be preventing me from loving myself?
ELIAS: Ah! Very well. One moment. (Pause) Very well. I would say that there are two factors. One is comparing—comparing yourself with other individuals and situations. And the other is somewhat being in a hurry, wanting to move faster or move better. And I would say in that that it is difficult to love yourself if you are continuously striving to be faster and better. It is also difficult to love yourself if you are comparing, because that indicates that you aren’t satisfied with you, you aren’t enough in yourself. It is a matter of moving in a direction of acceptance of yourself—who you are, how you are, what you are in every capacity—and expressing that all of that is enough and that it doesn’t require being better or faster. Every moment, in the moment, is enough.
BRIGITT: Yes. I hear you. I understand both of those for sure. In fact, I’ve thought of those.
BRIGITT: There’s a portion of my brain that says, “You know, if you accept the moment as it is as enough"—and a lot of my moments I feel enough—I’m thinking that will… then you’re just going to be stuck. I think that’s wrong, obviously, but I feel that if the moment is enough, that’s all that will ever happen. This will be enough. This will be the only thing that ever happens.
ELIAS: Ah! And I would say to you, my friend, definitely, definitely not, because it isn’t that enough is the end. It is simply that acknowledgment that you are enough in every capacity, there is nothing lacking, there is nothing wrong, and therefore you are free to explore anything. You are free to surprise yourself with anything, because if you are enough, you deserve.
ELIAS: And if you deserve, then you deserve anything or everything.
BRIGITT: Yes. Thank you.
RODNEY: This is Zacharie.
ELIAS: Welcome, my friend.
RODNEY: I love these subjects. With regard to healing, I’ve got so many things that I can work on that (laughs) it’s tiresome (Elias laughs). But what I’m interested in at the moment is a relief. And I’ve come across accidentally, picking up stuff as I go through the Elias forums, a work by a Patrick McKeown called "The Oxygen Advantage," which looks like a life’s work describing a person's exercises, mostly, on how to affect one’s breathing. And what I find interesting about it is that it’s not a mental exercise; it’s really a communication system with the body consciousness, which is what you are talking about. And I know I have intense energy. I’ve seen… I’ve actually had visual evidence of it as of late, and I know that these things are, shall we say, significant. I was wondering if you would comment on this technique, which basically it’s not a question of how much oxygen we have in our bodies that seems to be so overwhelmingly important, but a harmonious amount of carbon dioxide. And I was wondering if you would comment on that and on the overall technique?
ELIAS: I would agree. And I would say that part of the difficulty that many individuals experience in relation to breathing is that once you affect your breathing, you incorporate a tendency to expect it to be difficult. Therefore, because you expect it to be difficult, whenever you are doing anything it is. But if you catch yourself at times, in the moment, whatever it is that you are doing and you are experiencing that difficulty in breathing, that it is hard, that it is not being successful, that it is difficult to breathe in or out and that it seems that your lungs are not actually moving in the capacity that they should, if you actually stop at times in the moment and can acknowledge that you are making yourself have difficulty in that breathing and that you are tense, and if you can hear yourself, how you are breathing, and you can slow that and express it differently, you can actually change it.
Now, I would say that because this is a very strong expectation and because you move in that direction automatically, and because you generate the association and believe that there is something wrong with your lungs’ functioning, it may require a time framework to be entirely successful, but you can. It is a matter of genuinely, in any time framework, in any moment, allowing yourself to stop and pay attention to what you are actually doing and what you are concentrating on.
RODNEY: Elias, I am doing it. I am very much paying attention here, and I totally agree with what you're telling me. I’m thinking slowly. (Laughs)
ELIAS: That is acceptable!
RODNEY: Bear with me. I (pause)… He is saying that breathing through the mouth is very detrimental to a whole host of health characteristics. I…Yeah, I haven’t done anything in so long, I get all anxious when I do.
RODNEY: I know. I know.
ELIAS: It is only you and I, my friend. Only you and I.
RODNEY: Thank you. And we are enough, aren’t we? (Both laugh) I find that the idea of paying so much attention that every time I breathe through my mouth, which I have an extreme tendency to do now that I’m on oxygen, but catching myself doing that, and then the idea is to hold your breath I guess for pretty much what you can to allow the carbon dioxide levels to go where they should be, that whole exercise focuses my attention on my helping me, my communicating with my body and in dealing with a relief in the moment and not so much the expectation of healing myself, but at least giving myself a better ride, so to speak. I’ll call it that.
ELIAS: I understand. And that is actually, my friend, an excellent beginning. I would very much encourage you in that direction. And in that, stopping at any given point within your day in relation to any given action that you are doing that you find yourself being short of breath and that it is more difficult to breathe and that you feel that tightness in relation to your lungs, that they aren’t expanding in the manner that you want them to, STOP in that moment. I know that it is frightening. I know that it generates anxiety, and that exacerbates the situation. It merely encourages it more.
What I would say to you, my friend, is any of these time frameworks, stop momentarily, and rather than being more tense or anxious or irritated, allow yourself to actually relax. Relax your body. If you are taking one step up, relax your body as you take that one step up. And in that, allow yourself to merely feel your breath moving out or moving in. And don’t make sound with it. The more you make sound when you are incorporating difficulty breathing, the more you reinforce that something is wrong. (Rodney laughs) Therefore, when you relax, you breathe naturally. When you breathe naturally, you don’t make sound when you are breathing. You make sound when you are breathing when you are reinforcing to yourself that something is wrong, that something is broken.
RODNEY: I’m discovering that. Yes. Yes. Yes.
ELIAS: Therefore, when you relax, intentionally don’t make sound when you breathe.
RODNEY: Beautiful! All right.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) And I am always with you, my friend.
RODNEY: Thank you. Thank you, Elias.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
MODERATOR: Hi, this is the Moderator. I’m asking a question on behalf of Kimmi. And Kimmi writes, I want to know if I created the following from putting pressure on myself: Morton’s neuroma, notalgia paresthetica, itchy torso, arms, hearing explosions, heartbeat in her ears – and if so, what exercises could she do to relieve the pressure? Does that include visualization, oils or whatever else?
ELIAS: Visualizations would be successful. I would say that in this situation also, intentional relaxations would be very helpful, in which it would be a relaxation of the entire body and doing that perhaps two to three times per day at intervals of approximately between five and ten minutes, in the action of relaxing every aspect of the body consciousness intentionally, and allowing yourself to hold that, once you generate the entire relaxation of the body consciousness, to attempt to hold that for one to two minutes, and therefore allowing yourself to reinforce that. I would say that this is definitely a matter of expressing considerable tension and anxiety. And I would also express not necessarily enough movement physically, and therefore not releasing energy. Therefore, the relaxation will be considerably beneficial. THEN, once you become accustomed to generating that relaxation, I would definitely express an encouragement to be engaging some type of physical activity to allow the body consciousness to naturally release that energy.
MODERATOR: Okay. I think she just has a quick follow-up. I think she wonders how do you relax, if you have anxiety and for activities? She does Pilates and light weights. Is that enough?
ELIAS: Now, let me express to you in this. Contrary to what many individuals may think, this action of Pilates and even weight and strength training, these are not actions that actually encourage or allow you to release energy. Actually, for the most part they are quite the contrary. I am not expressing that engaging Pilates isn’t beneficial; it definitely can be. It is definitely a benefit to be focusing on strengthening your core. Therefore, that is important and it can be definitely beneficial, but it isn’t necessarily a practice that encourages naturally releasing energy. This an action, and also weight training or strength training, those actions also, they are actions in which you are naturally encouraging the body consciousness to HOLD tension – for a reason, but it definitely encourages and communicates to the body consciousness to HOLD tension. Therefore, it is important that you balance that with some actions that allow you to release that energy.
Now; the question of how do you relax? Actually, that is an excellent question, because many individuals don’t know how to relax. What I would say to you in this is a very simple relaxation exercise that is very effective is one in which you are not lying down flat, but you can be in some type of prone position or in a relaxed sitting position. And in that, you begin focusing with your feet, and you move incrementally from your feet upward through your body consciousness.
Now, in this, this is an actual visualization, but it is an experiential visualization. In this, I have expressed to include the visualization of a white or a silver energy moving upward through your body. In that, you move very slowly, incrementally focusing on every aspect of your body: your toes, your feet, your ankles, your calves, your knees, your thighs, moving upward. And as you move to your torso, you move that silver or white energy through each one of your energy centers but also in the surrounding areas of your physical body: your hips, your groin, moving upward through your torso, incorporating intentionally focusing and releasing energy and moving that white or silver energy upward, upward, throughout your entire body consciousness. Up through every aspect of your head, not simply your head in general: your neck, your jaw, your tongue, your facial muscles, your nose, your eyes, your ears, your temples, your forehead, your top of your head, the back of your head—all of it. You move very slowly, relax every aspect of your body and include all of your energy centers and moving that white or silver energy upward until you reach the top of your head.
When you reach the top of your head, incorporate one or two relaxing breaths, and then burst that white or silver energy out through the crown of your head, and create a fountain of energy that rains down upon the outside of your body, relaxing all of that and your skin through that raining-down energy. And all of the energy then leaves your body, rains down around it and flows into the ground. That can be a very effective relaxation exercise, and if you are genuinely using it, it can be very successful.
MARIJ: Hi, Elias. This is Kammi. I wanted to come back to your beautiful answers to Val about her pyramid energy. I was wondering about something. In a small group, we actually make what you would call time-bending trips to various spots in whatever dimension or parts of the world or whatever, and we also visited several pyramids in those trips—connected with them, somehow, we investigated with them. And I also can connect to what I felt or connected with even after those trips; I can tune into that again. I was wondering: you mentioned the word "physically visited" the pyramids. I was wondering if this type of visit is similar, or would it be different and why so, if different? Thank you.
ELIAS: Very well. And I would express that is an excellent question. And I would say that when you are projecting, you do actually connect with the energy of the pyramid, but there is a difference. I would say that you do actually connect with that energy and you do retain it and you take it back with you, so to speak, but there is a difference in whether you actually are physically engaging them or whether you are projecting.
Now; let me express in relation to that, it is very similar to what I was expressing that an individual can transfer that energy by touching another individual and it will transfer that energy to the second individual, and it does. But for the individual that is being touched and the energy is transferring to them, it doesn’t remain for long periods of time. It dissipates over time. The individual that actually visited that physical location and was physically in that present, they retain that energy forever, for the rest of their life, because it is infused into their body consciousness; it is infused into their actual cells. But when it is transferred from one body to another body, that is a different action. It is definitely affecting and it is definitely helpful, but it also does dissipate with time. It doesn’t remain, because it doesn’t actually infuse into the cells of the individual in the same manner.
Therefore, when you do a projection, you aren’t taking your body with you. And in doing so, then you DO connect with that energy of the pyramid and you bring it back with you, and then you are doing the same action as that touch transfer. You are bringing it back and you are expressing transferring it to your body consciousness, and it will be effective and it will be empowering and helpful, but it will dissipate in time.
MARIJ: Thank you, Elias. That makes sense to me. Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
MODERATOR: Well, I think we’ve reached the end of our time.
ELIAS: Very well! I shall greatly be anticipating our next meeting. And I express tremendous encouragement to each and every one of you in your endeavors and in your actions, in your regeneration, in your explorations, in everything you are doing. And I express to each and every one of you the encouragement: none of you are broken. (Group laughter) None of you. Therefore, practice acknowledging that to yourselves, because none of you are broken.
In this, my dear friends, I express "I love you" to each of you. Until our next meeting, au revoir.
GROUP: Thank you, Elias. Au revoir.
(Elias departs after 1 hour 38 minutes)
