Why Am I Blocking Happiness


“The Elusive Concept of Acceptance”
“Create a Partnership With Yourself First”

Monday, November 1, 1999 © 2000 (Private/Phone)
Participants:  Mary (Michael), and a new participant, Joseph (Dainel).
Elias arrives at 10:47 AM. (Arrival time is 19 seconds)

ELIAS:  Good morning!

JOSEPH:  Good morning!  Elias?

ELIAS:  Yes?

JOSEPH:  This is Joseph.

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  Welcome!

JOSEPH:  Thank you.  Same to you!

ELIAS:  And you have inquiries this day?

JOSEPH:  Pardon me?

ELIAS:  You have inquiries this day?

JOSEPH:  Yes.  My main inquiry is about ... well, I have beliefs I’ve been trying to deal with for some twenty-five years, and I don’t know how much progress I’ve made with them, and I don’t quite understand this new concept of accepting them. (Elias grins)  I’ve read and re-read what you’ve said about it, and the whole idea of accepting doesn’t make much sense to me.  I don’t know whether that’s different from trying to replace the belief, or if it’s just simply forgetting about the belief, or just concentrating on something different, and concentrating on something different is what I’ve been doing.

Now, the particular belief that disturbs me the most is this belief that blocks my finding a partner in life.  When I was very young, I used to look at men and see that they were only interested in women — the ones I wanted — and I kept saying to myself, “There’s no one for me,” and apparently I put that belief in my system when I was very young, or maybe I acquired it from the very beginning of my life; I don’t know.  And then, when I came upon Seth a couple of years after that, which would be around ‘76 or ‘77, I started this meditation: “There are straight men interested in and available to me,” and my life drastically changed.

I haven’t actually found a partner and I haven’t felt like I’ve moved this belief out, which you said would never happen.  But on the other hand, I’ve got an intense discomfort with it that I’m trying to get over, and it’s obviously causing a lot of conflict in my body too.  If you need any more detail from me, you just tell me.  I’ll let you talk for a minute.

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha!  Very well!

First of all, let me express to you that I hold an awareness of the difficulty in understanding this concept of acceptance in relation to belief systems.

Now; acceptance of belief systems is not an action of eliminating a belief system or changing a belief system or ignoring a belief system.  These are actions that have been offered to you previously in conjunction with merely the concept that you HOLD belief systems; as an introduction, so to speak.

Now, as your awareness has moved into an acceptance that you do hold belief systems and that they are very influencing within your focus in this physical dimension, you move into an action in conjunction with this shift in consciousness....

JOSEPH:  What were the last two words?

ELIAS:  You move into an action in conjunction with this shift in consciousness, which moves you into an area of acceptance of belief systems.

Now; be understanding that in acceptance of belief systems, you are not disengaging your thought process, your emotions, your opinions, or your preferences.  You continue to allow yourself to express all of these elements of your reality and of yourself, but you discontinue creating judgments with respect to the beliefs that you hold.

JOSEPH:  You dis- what?

ELIAS:  You discontinue creating judgments.

JOSEPH:  Okay.

ELIAS:  Now; in this, let me divert briefly and express to you to momentarily look to yourself.

Now; as I express to you to be accepting of self, what shall your response be to me?  Shall you respond to myself that the method of acceptance of yourself shall be to eliminate yourself?

JOSEPH:  No, definitely not.  That would be ... well, I am, and that’s who I’m going to be always.

ELIAS:  Quite!

JOSEPH:  I have no trouble with that theory.  I’ve gone through that already.

ELIAS:  Quite.  Now; the action of acceptance of belief systems is quite the same.

In this, the action of acceptance of self is to be allowing yourself to be expressing of yourself — exhibiting qualities and natural expressions of yourself — without placing judgment upon yourself.

JOSEPH:  Okay, I understand that clearly.  Now, the question that still has not been answered is — well, I haven’t asked it till now, perhaps — why am I blocking the happiness I want?

ELIAS:  I am understanding of this.

JOSEPH:  Do you understand what I’m talking about, or should I go into more detail?

ELIAS:  It matters not.  Your question moves in the direction of intimacy with another individual ...


ELIAS:  ... and your desire for this action to be occurring, and ...

JOSEPH:  Say that again?  My what?

ELIAS:  Your desire.

JOSEPH:  Yeah, okay.

ELIAS:  ... and the lack of that manifestation within your focus.  And in this....

JOSEPH:  Wait a minute.  Say that again.  Your desire ...?

ELIAS:  You desire to be interactive in an intimate relationship within this focus.

JOSEPH:  Yes, I understand.
ELIAS:  Your perception is that you hold an inability to be manifesting that within this focus.

JOSEPH:  Yes, that’s correct.  That’s my central problem.

ELIAS:  Quite.  Now ...

JOSEPH:  My challenge.

ELIAS:  ... acceptance is a key element in this situation.  First of all....

JOSEPH:  Are you saying that acceptance will produce this?

ELIAS:  In part, yes.

JOSEPH:  Okay, continue.

ELIAS:  You have moved....

JOSEPH:  What?

ELIAS:  You have moved in a direction, within your focus for much time framework, of discounting of yourself and creating a lack of acceptance of self and a lack of trust in your individual abilities to be creating what you wish to be creating within this particular focus.

Now; this is a base element of this very situation that you are inquiring of this day, for there is within your perception a clear element that you wish to be creating and that you are objectively not creating, and the base or key element of this situation is the acceptance of yourself first.

For as you continue to move in the direction of a lack of acceptance of self, what you are in actuality creating is a projection of energy to other individuals — which is quite assimilated instantaneously by these other individuals — which expresses, “I am unworthy.  I do not hold the ability to be creating efficiently.  Therefore, I am not deserving of this relationship.”  As you continue to be discounting of yourself, you also continue to be projecting this energy outward.  Other individuals connect with that energy....

JOSEPH:  Okay, I understand that very well.  Now, what can I do about that is the next question, the burning question at this point.  I’ve been ... you know about my meditations, don’t you, or do I need to describe them to you?  Can I change them in some way or another?

ELIAS:  This is not a situation that shall be altered through meditation.  You may continue to be meditating and this shall not alter this situation, for what you are attempting to be creating is changing yourself, and this is not the point.

The point is not to be changing yourself.  The point is to be accepting of yourself and recognizing that the individual that you are IS acceptable and holds wondrous qualities in this focus.

JOSEPH:  Would I be causing conflict in my mind if I told myself throughout the day, every now and then, that I AM acceptable, that I’m worthy of this relationship, etcetera?

ELIAS:  This may be quite efficient initially to begin your movement, to be creating a series of affirmations that you may be repeating to yourself.

For let me express to you quite clearly that although you may not move into an objective thought process of continual discounting of self, you are within you creating the reverse action of the affirmations that you are speaking of on a continual basis, for you are reinforcing continually to yourself that you are NOT worthy of this type of action and creation of a relationship in intimacy.  Therefore, you may counterbalance that action that you are creating continually with objective affirmations in a beginning movement.

Now; I shall also express to you that you may engage another exercise that may also allow you more of an objective recognition and noticing of how very often you ARE discounting of yourself.

In this, you may be allowing yourself to merely practice for one week within your time framework, and throughout the engagement of each day within that time framework, be noticing of each thought process, each feeling, and each automatic behavior that you move into.

Now; you may practice this within your employment.  You may practice this as you....

JOSEPH:  Elias, it seems like I’m always doing that.  I’m extremely aware, because Seth has brought that to my attention.  So, I must be missing something here, because you apparently would be aware that I’m doing that if I really were.

ELIAS:  And I shall continue in this exercise.

I wish not for you merely to be noticing, but also noticing your automatic response TO your noticing.  This is a very common trap that individuals — yourself also — create as they begin to widen their awareness, and [as] you begin to be noticing of your own behaviors and your own automatic responses, you also turn your attention not TO self but UPON self, and you reinforce the very action that you wish not to be reinforcing, for you continuously discount yourself and express that you SHOULD have been accomplishing better.  You SHOULD be more aware.  You SHOULD be more accepting.

These are expressions that are automatically created, and the point in the direction of acceptance is to be offering yourself more choices than merely the automatic choices that you create.  There are many, many more avenues available to you, but you do not see them, for your attention is held in the area of your automatic responses and your justification of those automatic responses.

JOSEPH:  Is a specific example of what you’re talking about my sexual responses to them?  Is that what you’re talking about, my desire to gratify them?  Or are you talking about something else?

ELIAS:  This is one area in which you may view quite clearly your individual automatic responses.  There are strong desires which objectify themselves within you, although they may not be objectively expressed.  You hold an objective awareness of these desires, and within those moments, your energy changes.  You immediately move into automatic responses.

You encounter another individual.  You may view this other individual, and you may feel within yourself quite strongly an objective attraction.  You may allow yourself to be responding to that attraction, and you may be interactive initially with this individual.  But in the moment that you choose to engage interaction with this other individual, you move into automatic responses....

JOSEPH:  Like fear or inhibition because you can’t (inaudible)?

ELIAS:  Quite.

JOSEPH:  Right?

ELIAS:  Yes, and this is what I am expressing to you.  This may not be altered or “fixed,” in your terms, by outward expressions, and it may not be changed through merely altering your approach objectively in your actions, for underlyingly, the lack of acceptance continues within you, and this overrides what you are attempting to accomplish, for the energy that is expressed within this lack of acceptance and fear is MUCH stronger than the energy that you project objectively in the want.

JOSEPH:  Hmm.  Well, I can see that.  I think I’ve been pretty much aware of that.  But I just don’t know how I ... well, my object was to attract a partner that would satisfy most of my needs, and there would be very little ... well, I could tell myself that I don’t have any interest in these other individuals.

ELIAS:  What you are expressing is the outward viewing that if certain outward expressions are acquired, this shall create satisfaction within in you.

Now; what I am expressing to you is the reverse.

JOSEPH:  That I reverse?

ELIAS:  Yes; that as you allow yourself to be concentrating upon yourself and allowing yourself to move into acceptance of self, you shall automatically project an accepting energy, and as you project THAT type of expression of energy, you also shall begin to draw to yourself the very action that you seek.

JOSEPH:  Okay, that’s clear to me, but the only question that remains is that I just can’t understand how to go about accepting myself and making myself worthy, and projecting that positive energy therefore.

ELIAS:  This I shall express to you is a process, and given the strength of the belief systems, given the strength of the element of fear, and given the strength of the expression of discounting yourself that you have fed into for much time framework, this shall not be accomplished immediately.

Now; I shall express to you that it is not impossible for that action to occur.  But within your reality, it is much more probable that the action of immediate alteration shall not occur.

Therefore, I express to you that you begin in increments in which you turn your attention from viewing outwardly to viewing inwardly.

You turn your attention from the want of the partnership to the desire of the acceptance of self, for the partnership and the availability of the partnership shall be a natural byproduct....

JOSEPH:  Yeah, I understand that perfectly.  Would that mean, in practical terms, that when I see a man that I’m really affected by, I just immediately turn my attention away from him to the fact that now I must feel worthy for him?


JOSEPH:  Or that I’ll start to feel worthy for him?


JOSEPH:  Pardon me?


JOSEPH:  Okay, continue.

ELIAS:  You may be continuing to engage this type of action.

I am merely expressing to you not to be moving in the direction of holding an expectation that suddenly you shall be accepting of yourself and projecting outwardly to this other individual, and therefore you shall instantly manifest this relationship.

(Intently)  What I am expressing to you is that you may be engaging other individuals without expectation, and in that engagement objectively, allow yourself to be accepting of your own thoughts and emotions and physical feelings.  Allow yourself to be accepting of these expressions, regardless of the action that the other individual may move into.  This is the initial process.

JOSEPH:  Now, does that entail any kind of affirmation from me?  Does that entail saying anything to the individual?  That part I’m not sure about.

ELIAS:  It is unnecessary for you to be moving in the direction of expressing affirmations to another individual, or to yourself outwardly in conjunction with another individual.  You may be continuing to express your affirmations to yourself non-verbally as you are engaging interaction with another individual, reinforcing your own acceptance of yourself.

But also, another element of this reinforcement of acceptance — in the very engagement of interaction with another individual — is to be acknowledging of yourself and to be recognizing the acceptance of yourself within your thoughts, within your feelings, and within your emotions in the moment — in the moment, as you are objectively, physically faced, so to speak, with another individual — for this is your automatic action presently, that you immediately move into the discounting of self and the fear in that moment, as you face yourself with another individual.

JOSEPH:  Well, I don’t see how I can ever just simply discard that fear.  It just seems to be totally a mystery to me.

ELIAS:  It is not a question of discarding the fear.  It is a movement of dismantling the fear, and you dismantle the fear and dissipate the energy within the action of fear by redirecting that energy which you place in fear....

JOSEPH:  Okay, could I tell myself ... I would tell this energy to now turn into acceptance?

ELIAS:  You may.

JOSEPH:  I have that control over my consciousness?

ELIAS:  You do.

JOSEPH:  Pardon me?

ELIAS:  You do.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  Well, that’s good news!

ELIAS:  YOU are directing of ALL of your consciousness.

JOSEPH:  Is this blockage of having the man I want, is that tied up with my lack of acceptance from my father, or my lack of acceptance to him, or whichever way it went?  Is that ... well, I don’t mean it’s the cause of it, but that it started early and it continues?  I haven’t discarded it, or I haven’t dismantled it, as you would say?

ELIAS:  Not necessarily.  This would be the direction that your psychology would move into and be expressing to you.

I shall not express to you in this manner, for this creates an identification within you — or any other individual — that you are not entirely creating your reality, but that any other individual may be so very influencing of your reality that you discontinue creating of your reality, and this is not the case.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  So really, I created my own reality even as a child.

ELIAS:  Yes.

And in this, one of the most difficult areas to be actualizing into reality and not merely concept — within this physical dimension presently, within the action of this shift — is individuals’ recognition that they DO create all of their reality, and that you hold responsibility for all of your reality within every moment.

JOSEPH:  I’ve pretty much always felt that.  I’ve felt for a long time that I do, that that’s really so.  But I think what bothers me is, I’m so puzzled that I can’t see many times much of what I create and how I can do a better job of creating ... a “better job” meaning bringing more happiness into my life.

ELIAS:  And I express to you that a key element of this is to be practicing in each moment, continuing to hold your attention in the now — in no other area but in the now — and in the now to be noticing as you are discounting of yourself.  (Firmly)  This is very key, and I may not express strongly enough to you....

JOSEPH:  You know, I think I understand that really completely.  Now all I want to do is, I want to get some key words down here real fast.  Discounting of myself ... what’s the other word that you keep using?  There’s several words ... I should not be discounting myself.

ELIAS:  Quite, and to be reinforcing of your acceptance of self, which as I have stated, you may be accomplishing initially through a continual action of affirmation.

In this, noticing is a very strong element, for as you allow yourself to notice, you may recognize that although you may already move through your day and it appears that you are noticing of all of your actions, you are NOT noticing of how you are placing judgments upon all of your actions.

JOSEPH:  So when I have an emotion that may not feel like the happiest ... maybe I should just direct the energy of that misplaced judgment to place a better ... in other words, instead of saying that I’m not ... I haven’t....

ELIAS:  This is an interesting point.  You may experience an emotion that you identify as creating unhappiness....

JOSEPH:  As what?  An emotion as what?

ELIAS:  As creating unhappiness, and in this, your immediate response is that you wish to be changing that feeling.  You wish to be creating happiness, and you wish to discontinue creating unhappiness.

Now; this is a clear example of the very element that we are speaking of this day — how you concentrate upon one direction, and you create the very expression that you wish not to be creating.

In this, let us view this simple example.

You, hypothetically within the moment, are experiencing unhappiness.  Your initial thought moves to the expression of, “I wish to discontinue this.  I wish to be happy.”

Now; this thought does not alter the feeling.  Therefore, you continue to concentrate upon the feeling.  You continue to concentrate upon the emotion, and as you continue to concentrate upon the emotion, you continue to express objectively that you wish to discontinue it, and each time you are thinking to yourself how very much you wish to discontinue this expression, you are lending more energy to the expression itself, for....

JOSEPH:  But couldn’t I just say to myself, “I redirect the energy of this emotion, the unhappy emotion, to a greater liking of myself or a better evaluation of myself”?

ELIAS:  Let me explain also to you, you may engage this and you may also set yourself into motion of disappointment, for this may not necessarily be affecting of the emotion itself either.

Therefore, what I am expressing to you is, in the moment that you are experiencing an emotion or a feeling that is unhappy or uncomfortable, recognize that expression, and without judgment, merely express to yourself that this is the expression that you are creating presently.  It is not good or bad.  It merely is an expression that you are experiencing within that moment.

Now; you may also move one step further, in your terms, and you may inquire to yourself, in that moment, the question: “Why do I feel what I am feeling now?”

Now; inquire this to yourself carefully, for in this question, do not allow yourself to be moving your thoughts into the direction of an answer that involves any outside element — no circumstance, no other individual.  Direct the question merely to yourself.

JOSEPH:  Hmm.  It’s the internal thing.  So to review then, I ask myself, “Why am I experiencing this?”  Alright, what else do I think at the time I’m experiencing that emotion?  Did you say something preceding that?

ELIAS:  Yes; to be allowing yourself the experience without judgment.

JOSEPH:  Oh yes!

ELIAS:  Not to be expressing, “I am unhappy.  This is bad.  I am unhappy.  I do not like this.  I wish to change this.”  No.

Merely be accepting — not loving, but accepting — that this is the expression that you are experiencing presently.  It is not good or bad.

And do not confuse yourself in the direction that your psychologists move into.  You need not embrace or love uncomfortable feelings.  This is not the point.  You do not embrace uncomfortable or unhappy or unpleasurable feelings and emotions, but you also need not move in the direction of expressing tremendous negativity in conjunction with these feelings, for this merely perpetuates the very expression you wish to discontinue.

JOSEPH:  Say that again.  Repeat that last sentence.

ELIAS:  You need not perpetuate the expression by creating a judgment in conjunction with it.

This is the same principle, in a manner of speaking, to that as if you were to be acquiring a wound upon....

JOSEPH:  A what?

ELIAS:  A wound upon your physical flesh.

JOSEPH:  Okay, okay.

ELIAS:  And in this, if you are continuing to be concentrating upon the painfulness that you are experiencing in conjunction with that wound, and you are continuing to be pressing upon it or ...

JOSEPH:  Rubbing it or having some part of your clothing rub against it....

ELIAS:  ... contacting it, you shall continue to irritate it, and it shall continue to be painful.

JOSEPH:  Right, right.  I understand your point there.

ELIAS:  Now: you may be acquiring a wound upon your flesh, and you may distract your attention, and you shall not experience pain.  Pain is an element of perception.  It is not....

JOSEPH:  Yes, I understand that real well.

ELIAS:  Quite.  Emotional pain is also an element of perception.

JOSEPH:  Yes.  That’s an interesting comparison there.  I’ve never thought of it that way, but I see that point real well.  So if I experience a lot of fear and unworthiness, can I just try to divert my mind to something that’s more pleasant?

ELIAS:  Yes.

JOSEPH:  And if I keep doing that, is that one....

ELIAS:  Yes.  This may be initially helpful also.  Distraction is quite an efficient tool in your beginning movements into the discontinuation of concentration of negativity, or discounting or devaluing of self.

JOSEPH:  Okay, one thing that keeps coming into my mind as we’re talking is, I keep seeing a connection between the negative feelings I get, like unworthiness for a partner, and these feelings that I get on my job about my job, my performance.  They’re not founded, because I keep being told I’m doing a good job, but I keep feeling like I’m worthless, like I’m not particularly of any value.

ELIAS:  And what have I....

JOSEPH:  Is there a connection between that?  Is there a general sense of devaluation that covers everything in my life?

ELIAS:  Yes, and this be the reason that I have moved in the direction with you this day of expressing to you that you may be practicing of this in the area of your employ also, for this devaluation of yourself and this lack of acceptance within yourself is expressed in every area of your focus.

JOSEPH:  Yeah, I definitely see that, but I just ... I haven’t been able to get a handle on it.  I’m trying, but the new thing to me is how bad it’s affecting my ... how it’s the main key to not finding someone in partnership.

ELIAS:  Now; let us examine this very statement that you have now expressed.  Notice your language, your very words, and in this, offer yourself the opportunity not merely to be noticing, but to be moving your attention in a different direction.

Your expression to myself is that you have not held a realization of how very BAD you are engaging this action.  Look to this very language that you are continuously employing, and reinforcing this discounting of self. (Short pause)

Or, how much you are desirous to be creating BETTER.  No, no, no!  You are not creating bad, and you need not create better!  You merely are not viewing all of your choices, and in this, you are discounting of yourself and you are holding yourself within this trap.

And what I am expressing to you is, the key to open the trap, that you may step outside of it, is to be acknowledging of yourself, and recognizing how very often you ARE discounting of yourself, and that this is ludicrous!  You are a glorious being!  You are a wondrous individual!  You hold tremendous abilities!  Why shall you be so very discounting of yourself? (Short pause)

Offer to yourself — listen to this — offer to yourself all that you desire to be offering to another individual, to a partner.  Create a partnership with yourself first, and you shall allow yourself the automatic byproduct of drawing to yourself the relationship that you desire. (Pause)

JOSEPH:  I think I understand pretty much what you’re saying.  It has to sit inside of me and hum (Elias smiles) ... well, be digested, as we say.  But I have a very good comprehension, at least.

ELIAS:  And you shall assimilate. (Smiling)

JOSEPH:  Yeah, assimilate is the term, the word I’m trying to find.

ELIAS:  It shall be occurring. (Smiling)

JOSEPH:  You know, to go on to a few other questions real fast ... actually, there’s no other ... actually, they’re all related.

I’m an artist, and there have been two periods in my life where I’ve painted and I’ve stopped, and presently I’m not painting.  Well, now I can very well see how this lack of ... well, how my devaluation of myself, my discounting of myself is producing ... I mean is blocking any ability to get anywhere with my art.

It’s funny, because on the one hand I feel that way.  On the other hand, I have a very high evaluation of myself as an artist, and I guess a question I have for you is to basically to confirm what I’m saying.  I don’t have anybody to judge me as an artist.  Am I just over-evaluating myself?  I think I offer a tremendous amount to the world in terms of beauty.  Is it really true that my discounting of myself generally, myself as a person ... (inaudible).

ELIAS:  This is quite affecting of your creative expression also.

Now; look to your creative expression.  You allow yourself partially an expression of acceptance in this area, but you guard this very carefully.  You are accepting of your own intimate expression within your creativity, and you allow at times for your artistic expression.

JOSEPH:  Say that sentence again, please.

ELIAS:  You allow at times for your artistic expression.  But you also block this expression many times in conjunction with the lack of acceptance of self.

Let me express to you, you may be, if you are so choosing, availing yourself of interaction with Michael in this subject matter, for he also creates this type of action at times, in which his artistic expression mirrors the expression within and is blocked as he is also blocking his movement, and he may be interactive with you and may be offering you an objective understanding in this area of this particular expression.

Your artistic expression moves in waves as you move in waves ...

JOSEPH:  Does what?

ELIAS:  As you yourself move in waves.

... and as you block yourself, you also block your creativity.

JOSEPH:  We’ve got four minutes, Elias, four minutes left, so....

ELIAS:  Very well.  You may offer one more question this day.

JOSEPH:  I’m boggled by my sensitivity. (Elias smiles)  It doesn’t really bother me; I’m just curious about why.  I mean, it’s something I can live with.  I wonder if you have anything to say about it.  Do I need to go into detail or anything about my sensitivity?

ELIAS:  Let me offer to you that you may be inquiring of Michael also in the direction of information which has been offered previously in conjunction with the subject matter of orientation within this physical dimension.  I express to you that you hold the orientation of soft in this physical dimension.

JOSEPH:  Hold what?

ELIAS:  You hold the orientation of soft in this physical dimension, and this is quite affecting of what you term to be sensitivity.

JOSEPH:  Hmm.  I hear the words, but I don’t quite understand that.

ELIAS:  This is what I am expressing to you — you may be inquiring to Michael, and he shall be directing you to this information.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  I guess the only other question is about astrological beliefs.  Are astrological beliefs deleterious?  Are they causing any blockage in areas where I’m trying to accomplish my happiness?  Do you have anything to say about that in two minutes?

ELIAS:  I shall offer to you to reverse your idea of astrological movement.  In the direction of the subject of astrology, you as an individual and a participant in the collective reality create the movement of your universe, so to speak.  It mirrors you; you do not mirror it.

JOSEPH:  Yeah, but I have a concept that it’s like you decide upon a pattern when you come into birth, and the astrological planets reveal that pattern, and that has a wide range of opportunities.

ELIAS:  Partially ... partially.  I express to you, you do manifest within a specific season.  You choose a specific season and you choose a particular time framework in which to be manifest, for you have already created certain identifications that move in conjunction with your astrological descriptions, and you have already created certain movements of energy in relation to these identifications of astrological time frameworks.  In this, you do choose specific times to be manifest physically to be mirroring those identifications.

What I am expressing to you is that you collectively have created those personality types, those seasonal attributes and qualities, and that they have not been created and therefore are influencing of you.  It is the reverse.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  One last question because we have to call it quits soon.  Can you please give me my essence name, and the chord that defines me?  Being a musician, that’s very interesting to me.

ELIAS:  Very well! (Pause)

JOSEPH:  Are you there?

ELIAS:  Yes.

JOSEPH:  What is my essence name, please?

Vic’s note:  For new folks having sessions, it may be helpful to know that there is often a pause after asking these types of questions.

ELIAS:  Essence name, Dainel; D-A-I-N-E-L. (day-nel’)  Essence....

JOSEPH:  Can you repeat that?  Spell that again, please.

ELIAS:  D....


ELIAS:  D-A-I ...

JOSEPH:  Oh, Daniel?

ELIAS:  ... N-E-L.



JOSEPH:  Okay, A-I-N-E-L?

ELIAS:  Yes.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  What chord?  What musical chord? (Pause)

ELIAS:  F sharp.

JOSEPH:  Major or minor?

ELIAS:  Major.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  Am I correct to think that I belong to the family of ... mainly to the family of Gramada, or is it another family?

ELIAS:  Belonging to essence family of Gramada; alignment, Sumari.

JOSEPH:  Alignment to what?

ELIAS:  Sumari.

JOSEPH:  M-A-R-I ... M-O-R-I?

ELIAS:  Sumari.



JOSEPH:  Okay, Sumari; S-U-M-A-R-I.  Okay.  Okay! (Elias chuckles)  Why does this color, a light orange salmon color, affect me so much?

ELIAS:  This moves in the direction of your essence tone.  This would be the color that is the signature color, so to speak, of you.

JOSEPH:  Okay.  Well, I’m going to say good-bye ‘cause the time is up by three minutes.  So, thank you very much! (Elias laughs)

ELIAS:  I express to you encouragement in this movement that you are beginning within now.  I also express to you an anticipation of our next meeting.  You shall be accomplishing!  I offer to you this day great affection, and I shall....

JOSEPH:  Great what?

ELIAS:  Affection.

JOSEPH:  Great affection?

ELIAS:  I shall also be offering to you energy from myself in encouragement, and I shall disengage this day expressing much lovingness.  Au revoir.

JOSEPH:  Much what?

ELIAS:  Lovingness.

JOSEPH:  Okay, the same.

ELIAS:  Au revoir.

JOSEPH:  Good-bye.

Elias departs at 11:51 AM.
