“Understand: associations don’t have to do with thinking. Therefore your nervous system can make associations.”

ELIAS: Good afternoon!

JOHN: Good afternoon.

ELIAS: And how shall we begin, my friend?

JOHN: I’ve got another dream experience to ask about. So I don’t remember when this was, sometime after we talked last, but I had a dream about my friends, Hailey and Austin, who are two friends of mine who are a couple now. And the pieces that I wrote down and that I remember were: Austin was kind of around but he didn’t really seem very involved in the dream, but Hailey and I were more involved in the dream and essentially there seemed to be some type of like pink or red substance in the dream that essentially gave us like super powers or activated some type of power that her and I had, that was unique to us. And it almost felt like futuristic or maybe even like another dimension or something. Something seemed very kind of sci fi about it. But yeah, the only piece I remember is that her and I had somehow gotten ahold of this red-pink substance thing and it activated these powers in us and we were, I was able to do something related to space travel or energy, something along those lines. I don’t really remember at this point. It’s been quite a long time and that’s pretty much all I wrote down, so…

My… I don’t know that I have an impression about it, so to speak, but it did have a feel of maybe it was some type of connection with another, another reality that we were involved in, or maybe a future focus in this reality. But it just… just definitely had some type of sci fi element to it, is how I would describe it.

ELIAS: Other-dimensional, yes.

JOHN: Hm. So her and I and him share focuses there?


JOHN: Oh. Was that somewhat accurate, that somehow this substance kind of activated some type of power in us?

ELIAS: It’s (pause) symbolic. It’s not literal that there is a particular substance that activates those powers but yes, that there are abilities or powers that you express in that dimension that are what you would think of or you would assess in this dimension as super powers. And in that, it’s not that they’re activated by any particular substance necessarily, but there are certain actions that you engage that allow you to activate those powers. Therefore engaging a substance and choosing a specific color is a good symbolization of engaging with certain activities that are specific that you would engage repeatedly that would help to activate those powers, yes.

JOHN: Hm. Is that something that is special in that dimension to her and I? Like are we some type of special people or is that something that is kind of available to everyone? Because there was a sense that her and I were somehow different than the other people in the dream.

ELIAS: There are different types of abilities, yes.

JOHN: Hm. Okay. Interesting. Well, while I’m thinking about this, I haven’t asked about this in a while, but I have the sense that her and I are soulmates and probably also him and I are soulmates?

ELIAS: Correct.

JOHN: Okay. Well yeah, thank you for that. It’s very interesting. I have some questions for a friend of mine, some stat questions. My friend Allie mainly wanted to know how many focuses she has in this reality. And I asked her for her impressions because I knew that that’s what you would do. (Laughs) You’ve trained me well. So I told her to write some things down and just meditate on it and try to allow some impressions to come. So she wrote a couple things down. In terms of focus number, she wrote down 486.

ELIAS: (Pause) Reverse the last two numbers.

JOHN: Okay. And then as far as animals, focus or essence, she just had… She wrote down a horse.

ELIAS: (Pause) Actually, that’s correct.

JOHN: Is that focus or essence?

ELIAS: That would be a focus animal.

JOHN: Hm. And I think she… I basically sent her a list of all of my stats that I’ve accumulated over the years without really explaining much of what they were. So I’m not sure, this could kind of go two different ways. So a long time ago, I had asked about the percentage of male or female energy in this focus. I think what she means is that… So she wrote down 75% percent female, and I think what she’s meaning by that is 75% of her focuses in this reality are female.

ELIAS: (Pause) Slightly less, but close. I would say actually more approximately 73.

JOHN: Okay. And then I mentioned the symbols and she wrote down a word that I didn’t know what it was (laughs) and I looked it up, but apparently it’s some type of symbol that people have a tattoo of, and she might have a tattoo of it actually, but it’s called a unalome or unilome – I’m not quite sure how to pronounce it – but is that at all related to her focus or essence symbol?

ELIAS: Partially. That’s not the entire expression of the symbol, but that would be included.

JOHN: Hm. In her focus symbol or essence?

ELIAS: That would be essence.

JOHN: Hm. Okay. And then just to throw a couple more in there for her, what about her essence and focus colors?

ELIAS: And was an impression offered?

JOHN: No. She didn’t have any with the colors.

ELIAS: One moment. (Pause) Focus color: spring green. Essence color: ruby red.

JOHN: Hm. All right. I will share that with her. She’ll probably have more questions next time. Thank you.

ELIAS: You’re welcome.

JOHN: I basically… This conversation, I’m very focused or curious wanting to talk about my body and kind of coming back to what we talked about last time in terms of talking about things or addressing to things on a deeper level. I want to kind of stick to that theme in relation to my body, and there’s a couple different directions that I guess that could go. But I guess one thing that I would say is that I have noticed more recently that somehow it feels like in this kind of much deeper sense, I don’t know, something just feels off with my body. I don’t know how to articulate that better. I don’t know if I’m somehow more out of balance than I have been, or if it’s related to being in North Carolina and my family and all of those other things that I’ve been dealing with for the last few years, but yeah. I just feel like there’s something off, and there’s moments where I feel like… I don’t know. Like do I have, do I have some type of disease that I’m not aware of, that’s affecting me? Do I have cancer or something? Or is…? Or am I just, you know, out of balance in some way and this is just… there’s various manifestations of how that’s playing out.

But I will say that one of the biggest ones, as we’ve talked about before, is sleep. And I still really struggle with sleep consistently and it’s very confusing to me and disruptive and it still just kind of bothers me. And it’s not… it’s not the same every single day or every single night, but essentially I have the same types of symptoms that sometimes are less intense and sometimes are much more intense.

Last night for example it was New Year’s Eve. My friends and I had a little gathering. We had a fire. We played games. We were up very late. So I went to bed at like two-thirty in the morning or something, which is late and definitely later than I have been going to sleep. But I had the same experience that I’ve had before where I felt really tired. I felt… I felt like I was relaxed in my body, but as soon as I lay down to go to sleep, I literally just tossed and turned and felt completely restless. And I got up and exercised. I got up and jumped around. I stretched, I moved, I did all these things and long story short, I didn’t fall asleep until after six a.m. I just could not get my body to relax and fall asleep. But it was really frustrating. And I feel surprisingly good today (laughs) for having only got a couple of hours of sleep, but I’ve just had this experience so many times for so long and (sighs) I don’t quite know how to address to it in a deeper way or what—

ELIAS: And when you say… Now; when you do that, when you move around, when you get up and you incorporate physical exercise, does that alleviate the situation?

JOHN: Yes. The way that I would describe it, and we talked about this before with the restless legs and you suggested not eating sugar, and I’ve played around with that and I feel like there’s probably something to that for sure. But yeah, if I… The strange thing is it’s, it almost feels like only if I’m laying down, so if I’m having this experience of laying down in these moments, the way that I’ve described it to people is it feels like there’s so much energy in my, particularly the lower half of my body. When I was younger, it was specifically my legs. As I’ve gotten older, more and more now it feels like almost my entire body. I’ll have the same experience in my arms, where my arms feel like they need to move and they need to contract and they feel tingly and almost like I’m being electrocuted in some subtle way. That’s how I’ve described it to people, like someone’s just kind of randomly poking me with a cattle prod or something, and my muscles just spasm and need to move.

So if I… If I’m having that experience while I’m lying down I will often shake my legs. While I’m laying down, I will get in different positions and continue to shake my legs. And sometimes that’s enough to kind of calm it down. Sometimes I stand up. If I stand up, it immediately stops, or even if I sit up, it almost immediately stops. It seems to be only if I’m laying down in that, in any type of laying-down position.

So what I’ll normally do is stand up. I will do calf-raises because it’s usually my legs, so I will work my calf muscles. Sometimes I’ll do squats to work my upper legs. I’ll bounce around. I’ll do jumping jacks. I’ll stretch, some combination of all of those things. And it will help in the moment, because it’s almost as if even if I just stand up, the sensation stops. But moving for a while definitely helps, and then sometimes I can lay back down and it feels okay for a couple of minutes and then it just comes right back. That’s usually how it will go. And I just kind of repeat that process or I just work the muscles long enough, for five minutes or ten minutes or fifteen minutes or whatever, and then I try to lay back down. And sometimes that seems to be enough and I’ll fall asleep, but it seems very random and sometimes very intense and sometimes less intense. So I’ve made it a habit to just do those types of exercises before I even try to go to bed and that definitely seems to help in general, but it never seems to completely alleviate it. (Laughs) Did that answer your question?

ELIAS: To a degree.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: I would say (pause) you’re expressing that basically you are generating stretching or moving or exercising your body, and that that’s not actually alleviating the situation. That when you lie down again, it happens again. Basically what you’re expressing is that you do that until you’re exhausted and then you generally eventually will fall asleep.

JOHN: Yeah. Some nights that does involve getting up and doing things. Other nights I will just lay in bed and shake my legs until I fall asleep. But if I stop shaking my legs, I’ll maybe be relaxed for a couple minutes and then the sensation will come back and I’ll just kind of repeat that. So I try to just shake my legs, shake my legs, shake my legs, shake my legs until I pass out and fall asleep. That’s kind of usually how most nights are.

ELIAS: And does this occur if you are not lying down? Let’s say if you are reclining, but you’re not lying down flat?

JOHN: Um… Yes, it has.

ELIAS: Did it, did it occur consistently when you were sleeping in your car consistently?

JOHN: Um… Yes, but that… So yes, it was pretty consistent in the car for the first few months and the only… I’ve tried many, many things. I’ve tried many substances and supplements. I’ve tried all kinds of things. The only thing that’s ever consistently worked for me was the THC gummies specifically. I’ve tried CBD. I’ve tried magnesium. I’ve tried melatonin. I’ve tried all kinds of things, but specifically the THC gummies that – I don’t know what else is in them, but there’s certain ones you can get that are designed for sleep. I think they have CBD, also CBN and I don’t know, other things. Those worked very consistently for months on end, and I would sleep… You know, essentially they would hit me before this experience would happen and my body would get super-relaxed and I would fall asleep very quickly. So I did that for months in my car and I would wake up feeling generally refreshed and in not a lot of pain. And that’s really the only thing I’ve ever found that works. So if I didn’t take them, if I took a break for a few days or just didn’t have any or just tried to see what it would be like to not have it, then yeah, I would have the same experience for the most part. I would feel really restless and have the same kind of experience I’ve described. It would just be in my car instead of in bed.

ELIAS: Now; have you tried to replicate that experience without the substance?

JOHN: Sleeping in my car without the substance?

ELIAS: No. Replicate the experience without the substance, not necessarily in your car. I would say that the substance is tremendously and completely relaxing your body. What it’s doing is it’s generating a signal in your brain to entirely relax your nervous system.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: And what you’re expressing is you’re doing the opposite. You’re engaging your body in exercise, in attempting to exhaust yourself, attempting to exhaust your body. And in that, that’s not necessarily being tremendously successful. What I’m asking you is, have you attempted to replicate that type of relaxation without the substance?

JOHN: Yes. I mean, I’ve tried to intentionally instruct my body to relax. I’ve tried—

ELIAS: No. That’s not what I am asking. THAT generally (chuckles)… I would say that very few people can actually succeed in that direction—

JOHN: (Laughs) Yeah.

ELIAS: — of telling themselves to relax.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: When your body is agitated, it can be significantly challenging to encourage it to relax. And therefore it’s a matter of generating certain actions that will encourage your nervous system to relax. Because that’s what’s being agitated, which is the reason that I also expressed to you not to be incorporating sugar, because that will simply agitate it more. But in addition to that, I would say that it’s a matter of moving in a direction to relax your nervous system. Do you incorporate at this point some place that you have access to a tub?

JOHN: I do.

ELIAS: I would suggest that you experiment. Obviously if you can incorporate the substance and it is successful, then that would be an easy direction and I would suggest that you do that. But if you don’t have access to that, or if you have to wait to have access to that, what I would suggest is that before you go to bed, incorporate a hot – not lukewarm, hot – bath. And in that, set up this bath in a manner that is definitely promoting relaxation with your brain, with your nervous system. Therefore incorporate setting the situation or setting the environment in which you place a towel behind your neck and head, that you can relax your head, you can drop it back and allow your head to relax so that you don’t have to be supporting it.

Add to the hot water (pause) lavender essential oil. Make sure that the water is hot enough to be steaming. You don’t want it to be hot enough to burn you, but hot enough to be steaming. Therefore in addition to your body being submerged in the water, which will automatically begin relaxing your muscles and your muscles will influence your nerves to relax, in that also you’ll be breathing the steam of the lavender. Lavender is tremendous for its relaxation properties. In that, I would also suggest that you keep adding hot water to the bath and therefore you can maintain being in the bath for approximately twenty to thirty minutes. And therefore it will require you to continuously be adding hot water to the bath so that it isn’t cooling down. The heat is important to be relaxing your nervous system. In that, the lavender will definitely help.

Also I would suggest that you choose some type of music that is relaxing, that will also contribute to the entire experience of relaxing. And do this directly before you go to bed. Don’t do it and then do something before you go to bed. As soon as you exit the bath and dry your body, go to bed.

In this also, once you get into the bed, to further that relaxation, do that exercise of the safe exercise. (See Note 1) And in addition to the safe exercise, talk to your brain. Tell your brain that the only thing that it is allowed to think about is whatever you’re reading. And don’t read anything that isn’t fiction. I would suggest that when you get into bed after you do the safe exercise and you also tell your thoughts that they are not allowed to be engaged, that you will engage them in the morning but not at night. Put them somewhere. Talk to your thought mechanism as if it were a person, as if it were a being. And tell it that the only thing that it is allowed to engage is something associated with whatever fictional story you are reading.

I would definitely encourage you to be reading something when you enter the bed, for perhaps twenty minutes, because that will also at that point relax your eyes. It will tire your eyes. And when your eyes are tired, it has a tendency to send a message to your nervous system that your entire body is tired. Your entire body might not be tired, but your eyes are telling your body that it is.

In that, these are all interconnected things that are all working together to relax your body, not to engage it more. In this, it’s also important that you’re paying attention to what are you consuming for dinner, what are you consuming if anything after your dinner, and in that, making sure that you are not consuming anything that can potentially be stimulating or agitating your body. Do not eat spinach at dinner.

JOHN: (Laughs) I just bought a huge tub of spinach and have been eating spinach for dinner.

ELIAS: Spinach is excellent and it is a super food, but you can eat that in addition to whatever you are eating for breakfast. You can eat it at lunchtime. Do not eat it at dinner. Spinach is a vegetable that incorporates a stimulating property, which is part of what makes it a super food.

Therefore it’s a matter of being careful, looking at everything in the whole picture and moving in directions intentionally of relaxing your body, not stimulating it. You don’t want to be exercising. You don’t want to be moving more. That simply encourages your nervous system to keep being agitated. You want to move in other directions.

Have a cup of chamomile tea while you’re in the bath. That’s also something that will be additionally relaxing. You can have more than one cup of chamomile tea also. Don’t necessarily incorporate teas with many different ingredients. If your body is sensitive, which obviously it is, then sometimes combinations of different things can be agitating, even though in themselves they might all be calming or relaxing. But for some people, combinations of relaxing things can actually agitate them.

I would say that an excellent example of that is some teas incorporate chamomile and valerian and passionfruit, and those three ingredients in each, in themselves, are all calming and relaxing. Together, for some people, they can be agitating. Therefore pay attention.

It generally would be extremely rare that chamomile would be agitating in itself. I would say that’s one substance that it would be very, very, very rare for that to be agitating anyone.

But I would say that it’s not one thing. It’s not one thing that you can change that will necessarily be the fix-all for the situation. I would say that it’s a matter of recognizing your body is being reactive. If you are experiencing that restlessness, that’s your nervous system that’s doing that. And if you’re experiencing that restlessness every time you lie down but then it stops if you stand up, that’s significant. If it kept happening, that would be different. But the factor that it stops if you get up, what’s happening is your body has made some associating with this quiet time. It doesn’t necessarily mean your body has made an association with sleep. It’s made an association with a particular time, with quiet time. Nighttime is quiet.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: There is much less activity happening. There is much less influence of mass energy. It’s quiet time. And your body has made an association with that quiet time. And in that, it doesn’t like it and it’s obviously reacting that that’s not safe. I would express that this is the reason that it’s important to encourage your body in different manners that all work together to calm your nervous system.

Also in relation to how you sleep, (sighs) experiment with different positions. I don’t mean different positions of simply lying down. I’m expressing different positions such as propping yourself up, in which you’re not completely prone, and putting pillows underneath your legs. Therefore having your legs in more of a bent position, but not flat, not sideways. That they’re elevated. Actually, I am aware in your present time framework you can even purchase a wedge that is specifically for that purpose, to elevate your legs and put them in that bent position. That also alleviates pressure with your back and your hips and your pelvis. That might also be helpful.

Sometimes if you have difficulty with your back and there is difficulty with pain with your back, that can also create difficulty with your nervous system, that an association is made. Understand: associations don’t have to do with thinking. Therefore your nervous system can make associations, because it doesn’t have anything to do with thinking. Therefore in that, your nervous system can actually generate an association that lying down exacerbates discomfort. And therefore your nervous system becomes agitated and when your nervous system is agitated the first place that it affects is your extremities.

Actually, I would say that rather than generating exercises, another action that can bring your nervous system to an extreme and then allow it to relax is sex. (John laughs) That might not be a situation that (both laugh) you ordinarily have access to be engaging with another individual, but that is something that can be helpful.

JOHN: I’ll keep that in mind for the future. (Both laugh)

ELIAS: I would say though that it’s definitely a matter of looking at the whole picture and recognizing what can be agitating to your nervous system and what is relaxing to your nervous system. In this, also let me say that starchy foods are not necessarily good for your nervous system at night, therefore at dinner. How long do you incorporate between when you have dinner and when you go to bed?

JOHN: Um… Usually quite close. I mean, usually I’m at the gym until late. I haven’t been staying quite as late, but maybe nine o’clock, ten o’clock sometimes I’ll get home and eat. Sometimes I’ll eat dinner at the gym if I bring it, but yeah, generally I’ll be eating late. And that’s another question that I had or another piece of this, is I feel like some part of me associates these… It seems correlated also with sometimes not eating enough food or maybe eating too much at certain times. I don’t know. To me, there’s a correlation with total food and I think sometimes with my… the amount of exercise that I do during the day or just the amount of energy that I’m expending – and I have started a new training program in the last two months – I’ve been trying to eat more, but I think sometimes I just don’t eat enough. And oftentimes, if I’m waking up a lot in the middle of the night or not… or feeling this restlessness, sometimes eating will help. And so, I don’t know if it actually does, but it just feels like somehow I’ve associated it with hunger sometimes. But yeah, to answer your question, I generally eat pretty late and then I’ve lately been staying up late. I generally have tended towards staying up later, so I don’t go to sleep until midnight, maybe one o’clock sometimes, especially if I’m having trouble getting to sleep.

ELIAS: Are you comfortable with being up late and sleeping later, or is that not a natural rhythm for you. Is it a natural rhythm for you?

JOHN: It has been, for most of my life. I definitely have always felt like a night owl and tended to stay up late.

ELIAS: Very well.

JOHN: I don’t know that I—

ELIAS: Very well.

JOHN: — want that to be the case, and to some degree there’s been times more recently in my life where say I’m watching someone’s animals, right? If my roommate goes out of town and I watch the dog, she gets up early and will basically knock my door down at seven o’clock in the morning and say I need to go outside. So I’ve noticed that there have been some periods of time where I get on a schedule where I’m getting up much earlier and getting outside and then I will naturally be more tired earlier in the evening and go to sleep maybe closer to eleven. And sometimes that has felt really good, and then I question. Well, it seems like most of my life I’ve been a night owl and that’s kind of my natural rhythm but as I’ve gotten older for various reasons, if there’s a situation where I get up earlier and start going to bed earlier, sometimes that does feel really good. And then I start questioning well, maybe I should try to force myself in that direction. Maybe that would be better for me. So it’s very confusing. (Laughs)

ELIAS: The first thing I would say to you is it’s important to give yourself more time between when you have your dinner and when you go to bed. That there should be at the very least two hours between those two things. I would say it’s better if you have three to three and a half hours between when you have dinner and when you go to bed.

And in that three to three and a half hours you can incorporate a small snack before you retire to bed, but even with that there should still be at least an hour and a half between that and when you retire to bed.

I would say what you’re expressing is very understandable that you’re having so much difficulty and that your nervous system is in the direction that it’s in, because for the most part what you’re doing is constantly either stimulating it or agitating it. You’re engaging exercise at the gym or even if you’re not entirely exercising, you’re engaged and (pause) on. And then you eat after, but you’re there until nine o’clock in the evening and then you eat.

In addition to that, I would, I would agree with you that it’s important that you eat more. It’s important that you are intaking more protein definitely. I would say that I would suggest that you prepare something such as hard-boiled eggs that you can easily snack on throughout the day. I would definitely express an encouragement to you to be incorporating a reasonably hardy breakfast and to be incorporating a hardy luncheon also. And I would express that it’s important that you eat dinner much earlier. Nine o’clock or later is definitely (John laughs) too late to be consuming dinner – unless you’re not going to bed until one o’clock in the morning and not getting up in the morning until it’s not morning anymore.

JOHN: Yeah. So—

ELIAS: But if you choose to be incorporating a reasonable sleep time – this is a matter of altering your schedule considerably – and what I would say to you, my friend, is this is important because this is your livelihood. This is what you’re teaching other people. It’s important that you be an example of it.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: Therefore it’s not simply a matter of difficulty sleeping, although that would be enough motivation in itself, but you also have your business which revolves around health and fitness, and you’re not expressing that. I would say that it’s, as I said, not one thing and I would say that what I’ve been pointing at are many different factors that contribute to this type of situation. But then there is also the inward factors and as I said, your body has made (chuckles), your nervous system has made associations. And in that, that’s not something new. This has likely been happening most of your life.
Would you agree?

JOHN: Yeah. It specifically… I mean, it specifically started around 2008. I mean I remember it very vividly.

ELIAS: Repeat.

JOHN: I definitely… It started around 2008, very specifically and I remember it very well. But I think that I… I think I had… Well, yeah. I started having these types of symptoms in 2008 and they’ve been consistent since then.

ELIAS: And what can you point to?

JOHN: Um… I mean at that time, I had left the community I was living in. I was actually sleeping really great. I remember specifically how much, how well I slept when I was living in this community in Oregon. I was living kind of in the woods (laughs) in a commune, for what most people would call it. And in 2008 I moved back into the city and was living in a house and that was the main adjustment that happened, at least on the surface. But I also… it was a big transition to leave that community and not know what I was doing with my life. I was definitely stressed a lot with money and stressed about just trying to figure out what to do with my life. Basically that was the very big—

ELIAS: And why did—

JOHN: — transitional time.

ELIAS: Why did you leave?

JOHN: Um… Because I had met a lot of great people there, but at that specific community I was by far the youngest person and all the people that were there that were my age were very transient. And I would get close to them and they would all leave and go back to wherever they were in the country. The people who stayed and were part of the core community there were just much older, and I just felt like it was essentially unsustainable in that way. And I had met a lot of people in the city I moved to who were my age, so I just was ready for something new.

[The timer for the end of the session rings]

JOHN: But I think the piece that you’re talking about, in terms of the association with sleep and nighttime and quiet time and… I think that is definitely a piece for sure (laughs) that I feel aware of. It’s not lost on me that during the day I can still nap fine. I can still sleep fine during the day, if I decide to take a nap. I don’t generally have this experience during the day. It’s always the end of the day, and I feel like there is some association that I’ve made about thinking about life and being more stressed and thinking about these bigger things, and maybe feeling not as accomplished as I would like to or feeling like I wasted time or feeling like I was procrastinating. There’s a lot of, I think, deep associations that I have with the end of the day and going to sleep that I’m becoming more aware of. So I definitely agree with that.

ELIAS: Now; also remember: it’s a matter of looking at the entire picture. Therefore looking at those pieces also, that inward piece and the associations that you make, and making intentional changes. Making choices intentionally that are different. Not only physically. You already have the regiment of what to do physically or what to change physically. But it’s also a matter of looking at those pieces that you’re talking about, the pieces about at the end of the day and what you’ve accomplished or what you haven’t accomplished and looking at your life and expressing whether you are satisfied or not satisfied. Those pieces have to change also.

How do you do that? (Pause)

JOHN: (Laughs) Well, I mean I have thought a lot about this change with the business, and I feel very optimistic about this year and the things that are happening, even this month. Things are going really well with the business. And I have really wondered for a long time as I’ve reflected on this issue that if I get to a point in my life soon where I am feeling very in line with my vision and moving forward with all of these things and embracing that and experiencing that more and more, if this issue will kind of naturally resolve itself or at least maybe become less extreme. Because I will feel more and more and more… um… more and more in line with my vision and doing what it is that I want to do, and feeling fulfilled and feeling content with my day.

ELIAS: I understand. But I would say that that’s not necessarily true, that this has been occurring for a long time and therefore in that, you and your body have become accustomed to this. It’s become a habit and when your body creates habits, they don’t necessarily simply fall away because things in your life are good. Therefore, it’s a matter of you generating intentional choices that begin to change those habits.

In that, you can begin now and some of the things you can do are: at the end of the day, before you get into the bath, not after and not during, but perhaps when you’re having dinner, engage somewhat of an inventory of your day but only in relation to what have you accomplished that day. And it doesn’t matter if it seems to be significant or if it seems to be trivial, but give yourself an account of at least five things that you’ve accomplished that day, and allow yourself to genuinely express a satisfaction with yourself in relation to those things that you’ve accomplished. That’s a beginning of moving in a direction of changing how you are expressing with yourself.

You cannot expect that you’ll simply one day feel differently and everything will change. And in that, it’s a matter of, again, the whole picture, taking into account all of it. Which the factor that you remember sleeping very well while you were involved with that community is also significant, because if you had been sleeping very well your entire life you wouldn’t have noticed that. If you were significantly relaxed and sleeping well, that wouldn’t stand out to you.

JOHN: Yeah. Well, we should wrap up and I have a lot to meditate on. (Laughs) Thank you for all that.

ELIAS: Very well. You are very welcome.

JOHN: I… Yeah. Thank you.

ELIAS: You are very welcome. And I shall be looking forward to our next meeting, and what you are accomplishing and whether you are accomplishing any difference in your sleeping (laughs) or in your nervous system, let’s say.

JOHN: Yeah.

ELIAS: Very well, my friend. I express tremendous, tremendous support with you. And I shall be offering my aid in comfort.

JOHN: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are very welcome. Perhaps in that lavender you might actually also feel the presence of blue. (Laughs) I will be offering my energy extraordinarily (laughs). In tremendous friendship and dear love to you, as always, au revoir.

JOHN: Bye.

Note 1: The Safe Exercise

ELIAS: The exercise is: before you go to sleep, sit on the edge of your bed. This can be done within a minute. Sit on the edge of the bed, place your feet upon the floor, physically look at each wall in the bedroom. Quickly note what is along each wall. If there is a door, a window, study each wall. Also, close your bedroom door. You do not have to lock it, but close it, then after you do that you look at the ceiling, then you look at the floor and you say to yourself, “I am safe.” (Session 202310222)
