Participants: Mary (Michael) and Marcos (Marta).
Elias arrives at 10:23 a.m. (Arrival time is 15 seconds)
ELIAS: Good morning!
MARCOS: Good morning, Elias! It’s great to talk to you again, my friend!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) And what shall we be discussing this day?
MARCUS: Oh, a myriad of things, I hope. I’ll try to make this fairly short because I know Michael is under the gun a little bit.
But I’ll start off with a question regarding Europele, and I am going to give you my impression of Europele’s orientation, family, and alignment. I believe Europele is Sumafi aligned with Ilda, and the orientation is soft.
MARCOS: On all three counts? Boy, I surprise myself!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!
MARCOS: Wonderful! Thank you.
The second question is a validation. The other day I was talking on the phone with Isabel, and as you well know, she had her room painted a very beautiful shade of blue. She was telling me that the lights were going on and off, and she also felt a presence which I think was unique, and I said, “Elias, I think, likes the color of your room.” And she was laughing and she was noticing, and it was quite a bit of fun actually, and I just wanted to validate that.
ELIAS: You are correct. Ha ha ha! I may be playful at times in my acknowledgment of you! Ha ha!
MARCOS: I have noticed too, and that’s wonderful! (Elias chuckles)
My third question, Elias, is, the other night I had quite an interesting experience. I had probably half a dozen out-of-bodies that I remember, and I woke up and wrote some things down to ask you.
I saw, in one of my out-of-bodies, a couple of my former partners, and when I looked in their faces, they were as perfect as anything ... more perfect than anything I can imagine! I told both of them — they were together — I said, “How beautiful you look!” and they told me the same thing. I wanted to know what that was about, because it happened within, as I said, a number of out-of-bodies. They were so much fun because every time I would come back, I didn’t want to, but then I would. But I would immediately go out again, and it was just so much fun! Can you tell me a little bit about that?
ELIAS: First of all, I shall ask you, what is your impression concerning these actions?
MARCOS: Well, I think it has to do with a lot of things that I’ve been creating lately, and in one word, to me, it’s freedom. I am consciously creating freedom. I am thinking about it, I am doing things about it — it’s just a lot of fun! Freedom is fun! I think that ties into a dream I had last night or early this morning, which I want to talk to you about, regarding Paul. We were angry, and she left in the dream, and you know the situation we’re going through now, which I think all has to do with freedom.
ELIAS: I shall acknowledge to you that in part, you are correct.
I shall also express to you that you have presented yourself with these interactions quite purposefully, that you may allow yourself, in that noticing of freedom, to offer to yourself information concerning other layers of other individuals.
What is meant by this is that you have allowed yourself several interactions in this movement of projection, in which you allow yourself to view the radiance of other individuals’ essences through the form of one manifestation. Are you following thus far?
ELIAS: Now; in this, you have created these interactions, as I have stated, quite purposefully, and they serve you, if you are paying attention and noticing, in your interaction with this individual of Paul also. For you have chosen this time framework to be presenting yourself with these other individuals and allowing yourself to view other layers of them, and therefore also offer yourself an objective recognition, that you may be realizing this same type of expression in this individual of Paul.
[This] may be helpful to you in quelling many aspects of conflict, for as you view the individual more fully and not necessarily in one surface layer, you offer yourself the opportunity to dismantle some of the expressions of conflict.
MARCOS: Well, I understand that very well. I guess it could go in different directions, and I’m just trying to assimilate that, but I think you understand what I’m saying.
ELIAS: Yes. This IS an expression of freedom, Marta, for as you lock yourselves into one particular singular avenue of interaction and thought and association, and one type of experience of emotion, you also limit your viewing of your choices, and you limit your ability in your interaction with other individuals, for you limit yourself.
Now; as you allow yourself to acknowledge your movement in your choices concerning freedom, you also may create more avenues of actualizing that movement in freedom as you interact with other individuals by allowing yourself to view them more fully.
MARCOS: That makes perfect sense, and that also speaks to the broadening of awareness which I’ve been noticing for the last few weeks, and months really, and that comes back to what you’re saying now.
ELIAS: Yes. I shall express to you that within recent time framework, many, many, many individuals have been allowing themselves a genuine action of noticing more, and this is quite beneficial, although it also may be quite challenging.
MARCOS: Well, so far it’s been ... yes, it’s been a challenge, but it’s also been quite a bit of fun! You can feel and you can see the movement, and letting the noticing and the freedom take you places is fantastic!
ELIAS: Correct, and I have been expressing from the onset of these sessions that I have engaged with individuals, throughout the entirety of the time framework that I have been interactive with all of you, that this one action of allowing yourselves to be noticing may be your most powerful tool that you engage.
For in allowing yourself to be noticing, you also move yourself more into the expression of the now. You also offer yourself more information and open your awareness to more of your choices, for you allow yourself a greater understanding.
MARCOS: Well, that does make a lot of sense, and thanks for your patience. It’s only taken us a few years to go a small step, you know!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha! I shall express to you that you all are moving quite quickly, and I shall also acknowledge to you that this is no small step!
This is a very unfamiliar action that you have engaged, and you have moved into allowing yourself to position yourself with your attention in this noticing in more and more of an automatic expression. It has become a familiarity to you, as opposed to how unfamiliar it was at the onset of our interactions. This is quite an accomplishment, and more than a small step! Ha ha!
MARCOS: Well, thanks all around to you and me and everybody! (Elias laughs) Let me ask you something a little different, which I suspect is tied to all of this.
About a month ago I had a different experience, again at night. I had a dream where I was very angry about being intermediate. I was with my father and with Castille, and I was telling them in a very angry fashion how I hated being intermediate and how frustrating it was. The next morning, when I woke up, I couldn’t move my body. I was lying in bed, and I felt these energy surges all around and over and through and under me, and they were quite interesting.
I remember the first couple of times I felt something close to this. I would be very afraid, and a couple of times, as you know, I called out for you. I guess I wanted some proximity to feel more comfort. But in this case, I just went with it, and I wasn’t afraid. It was very strange. I was wondering if you could tell me about that.
In this, you have created imagery which expresses your frustration in the identification of your natural flow, and some of the aspects of a lack of understanding objectively of what that expression is, in actuality, and as you offer this type of imagery to yourself within your dream, you also have created an immobilization of yourself physically, temporarily.
Now; this is a type of mirror action that you have created, for it is moving objectively, once again, quite in harmony with the subjective expression.
In the subjective, you are presenting to yourself the expression of frustration, and the recognition that in your movements and expressions that are created in force, or not in the natural flow of your own energy in association with your orientation, you do in part create, figuratively speaking, a type of immobilization of yourself.
Now; you mirror this communication that you are offering to yourself in the subjective movement with the objective physical affectingness, in which you create a physical immobilization of yourself temporarily, to emphasize what you are offering to yourself in communication.
And in this, the frustration is expressed for the reason that you view this choice of orientation to be a type of affliction. It is not the expression of the masses. Therefore, it is different, and what have we discussed in relation to difference? Difference threatens. Sameness validates.
Therefore, as you view you have created some expression that is different, and you do not hold objectively a complete, so to speak, understanding of that choice, and you also recognize that this is not an objective choice ... therefore, there is an element of association that this choice has somehow been created by some other aspect of you that you are unaware of, and you yourself have not necessarily chosen this particular type of expression, and were you to hold the ability to be creating your own choice, you would not choose this particular orientation, and you view this many times to be, in a manner of speaking, a handicap.
Therefore, you mirror all of this subjective association and communication with an objective expression of immobilization, but you also have chosen to be creating a different response.
Previously, your response more likely may have been to be struggling with that immobilization, and expressing fear and tremendous tension concerning that physical action. In this time framework, you chose to be creating a different action. You chose to allow the expression and to relax, and in that action, you offered yourself much more of an expression of freedom.
The choice to be immobilizing yourself was recognized as a temporary action, merely to be offering you an expression of information, but not an action that you have created to be ongoing, in a manner of speaking. Therefore, this also moves in relation to your movement into new expressions of freedom, and your recognition of choice.
MARCOS: Okay, that’s very good. I’ll keep working on that one! (Elias chuckles) Two quick questions before we end. One, you’ve expressed information as to what happens when we sneeze. What happens when we sigh?
ELIAS: This action, in actuality, is a creation that is directly associated with emotional expressions. In this, you are allowing yourself, within the moment, to be releasing tension. You create a physical action that releases physical tension.
Now; it may release this physical tension at times only momentarily, but it is a communication, through the avenue of your body consciousness expressing a physical action, that you be noticing that you are holding your energy to yourself, and that you are creating an expression of tension.
MARCOS: Hmm. I’ve been doing a lot of that lately. I mean, the releasing, I think, is a lot of the tie-in. (Elias laughs) My last question is, going back to Europele, will you give me some clues to some other focuses we’ve shared? Because there’s a very, very strong connection there.
ELIAS: Ah, and shall you not investigate this, Marta?
MARCOS: (Laughing) I shall! I’m only asking for some clues!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! Very well! I shall offer you two directions that you may investigate. You are correct; you have participated in — or ARE participating in — other focuses together. In actuality, you participate in several other focuses together. You may....
MARCOS: Like three or thirty?
ELIAS: I shall express to you, my identification of several is more than three, and more near the expression of thirty.
MARCOS: Okay, that’s fair!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! In this, you may look to one focus in which you participate in 6th century, in physical location of northern Africa. You may also allow yourself to be investigating of another focus that you share within the physical location of the northern region of your North America, that which you identify now as Canada. In both of these focuses, you interact with each other in close relationship; one as family, one not as family.
MARCOS: Okay, that’s very good. I’ll take it from there! (They both laugh) Okay. You’ve given me some terrific information again, and I know that we’re always interacting, because a lot of things I see and feel, and I thank you again for that, my friend. And as always, it’s been a real pleasure.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome, my friend, and I shall continue to be interactive with you, as I am always, and you may express my greetings to Isabel also.
MARCOS: I will. Thank you.
ELIAS: (Laughing) To my great comrade, I express to you tremendous affection, and as always, I anticipate our interactions. To you this day, my friend, au revoir.
Elias departs at 10:53 a.m.
