Tuesday, November 14, 2000 (Private/Phone)
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Tom (Malhai).
Elias arrives at 11:47 a.m. (Arrival time is 19 seconds)
ELIAS: Good morning!
TOM: Good morning!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) How shall we proceed this morning?
TOM: (Inaudible) Well, I guess I got the impression this was your invitation (inaudible). Maybe we should discuss the conflict that’s going on with a lot of us? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ah! And how shall you proceed in that discussion?
TOM: Hmm. Well, I’ll start with my creations, I guess. It seems that I’m creating minor trauma. What is your recommendation of the best way to get out of this trauma that everybody seems to be in? It’s a mass thing right now.
ELIAS: You are correct. Many, many, many individuals are creating much conflict and are creating much confusion within their experiences. I have been discussing this action with several individuals recently, for this action is directly associated with this wave in consciousness addressing to the belief system of duplicity, of which many of you are allowing yourselves an objective awareness of. You also — many of you — are feeling yourselves to be spinning in circles, so to speak, in this situation.
But let me also express to you, each of you that are creating these objective expressions are offering yourselves much practice in allowing yourselves to be noticing all that you are participating in and all that you are creating.
In this, you also are allowing yourselves the presentment of objective imagery that at times seems to be in extreme expressions. You allow yourselves clear examples in objective terms of what you create, generally speaking, quite consistently and with constancy within your focus, but you do not pay attention. Therefore, you continue to create many of these types of actions in less extreme, and continue to reinforce the belief systems that are influencing of you to be creating in these types of manners.
In this time framework, quite in conjunction with this shift in consciousness and your objective insertion of it, you are allowing yourselves to objectively view more clearly how strongly you are influenced automatically, within your perceptions, by many of the beliefs that many of you have thought or convinced yourselves that you are not being affected by.
Belief systems are quite intricate. There are many, many, many aspects of them, and in this, many of the expressions of the belief systems that you hold have become so automatic within your movements that you do not pay attention, and you do not notice or recognize that they ARE influencing of you.
Therefore, as this particular belief system is being addressed in association with all of the aspects of duplicity, you are presenting yourselves with objective examples that may be viewed clearly, but that also present you with the opportunity to view the many layers that are in play, so to speak, in relation to your alignments with these belief systems.
I have stated at the onset of this particular wave in consciousness that you shall be experiencing much challenge in addressing to this particular belief system. It is extremely strong, and ALL of you align with it, and in this, you ALL express aspects of duplicity in each day, in each movement, in each direction that you choose, within the entirety of your focus. You merely are not paying attention to how influencing this particular belief system is.
And as I have stated previously, this particular belief system does not merely cross over, so to speak, with other belief systems, but interweaves itself and couples itself with EVERY other belief system. This is an action that is unique to this one belief system of duplicity. Therefore, there is much to be addressed in your viewing of it, your noticing of it, and your movement into acceptance of it.
This particular belief system is tremendously affecting of your perception. It is affecting of your perception concerning yourself and concerning other individuals, and all of your world and all of the actions that occur within your world. Therefore, you are presenting yourselves with tremendous challenges presently.
But let me express to you also that you are creating tremendous opportunities, and although many individuals presently feel themselves or perceive themselves to be stuck or not creating movement or experiencing quite difficult situations that they have created and are participating within, in all of these actions, you are not merely practicing in noticing, but you are noticing how well you are automatically noticing now, as you HAVE practiced noticing for a time framework, and it has become much more familiar to you.
Therefore, even in the struggle that many individuals may be experiencing presently, you also are validating to yourselves the movement that you HAVE created to this point, and allowing yourselves to view how your perceptions HAVE altered and turned throughout recent time frameworks.
Are you wishing to be discussing specifics in actions, or merely generalities?
TOM: Well, I guess we could do a little of both. I understand what you’re saying about our movement in addressing to this wave, which should move us into acceptance of most belief systems, in my view, I guess, because it involves all of them.
ELIAS: It shall be quite instrumental in movement into much more of an expression of acceptance within all of the other belief systems. You are correct.
TOM: And as far as specifics, are you talking specifically to me or specifically to.... (Laughing)
ELIAS: To you all.
TOM: To us all, okay. I guess we could get into more specifics. Which direction would you like to take it? I’m kind of going with your invitation subjectively that I felt I received from you to do this session.
ELIAS: You are correct. Now express to me your impression.
TOM: My impression of this invitation?
TOM: My impression of this invitation was to discuss this current wave, ‘cause I noticed myself being affected in different ways, such as (inaudible), and being kind of numb. So I guess my impression was that I received an invitation, and also, this morning I noticed the electrical thing.
ELIAS: You are correct.
Now; let us view this situation within yourself, and your creation in a physical expression. Express to me, what is your impression of that action?
TOM: My impression is that I have created this ... and all of the things that I discount myself on, and how I restrict my energy into actually the opposite of what I’d like to create many times.
ELIAS: And what is this expression in its underlying identification? What association does this create that you generally do not view, and that you do not associate with yourself?
TOM: That I generally do not associate with myself?
TOM: The duplistic actions of discounting, invalidating myself. I’ve noticed little areas that I do that, which accumulate, in a manner of speaking, that all of a sudden ... this creates what we consider conflicts and trauma, even if it’s on a small scale, where it becomes or it creates ... these actions of duplicity create these conflicts and actions that are considered conflict and trauma.
ELIAS: You are correct, and this repetition, as it reinforces what you are creating, creates also an escalation in your participation in it, does it not?
TOM: Yes, it does. Like I said, it seems to accumulate in the small things, and becomes larger and larger.
ELIAS: Correct, and in this action, you move into an association with yourself as a victim.
TOM: I guess I never ... I do not view myself as a victim, but....
ELIAS: Quite, and this is the point, and this is what we are discussing in relation to this particular belief system of duplicity, for this is one of its greatest expressions, is to be creating an automatic association and role within an individual of victim.
Now; this also moves outwardly as you view other individuals and interact with them. This particular aspect of this belief system is very camouflaged.
In your expressions in relation to other individuals ... which I am recognizing in this discussion you shall be quite objectively understanding of, for you participate in this action with Sena many times.
In [this], you participate and you interact with another individual that may be creating challenging experiences, and they may be incorporating difficulty and you may be discussing the situations and the creations that you are involving yourselves with, and you shall offer the expression of victim to each other — not concerning self, but concerning the other individual — for you disguise your association of viewing the other individual as a victim also, with the expression of sympathy.
You shall express to another individual this offering of sympathy, and at times also what you THINK of as an expression of compassion, and in actuality, many times these are camouflages for an actual expression of validation to the other individual — that you are in agreement with them that they ARE a victim.
TOM: Yes. It’s very subtle.
ELIAS: You are correct. And in this, you do not merely perpetuate within yourself the association with this role of victim and validate it to yourself, but you also reinforce this through validation to other individuals — this is acceptable, this is automatic, this is justified, this is what you do — and the expression of being a victim is actually viewed with comfort.
TOM: It’s like tying the two together.
ELIAS: It is quite acceptable within you all to be moving yourselves into this role and associating other individuals as being victims, but the challenge with this particular expression is that it binds you. It eliminates your view of your choices, and you hold yourselves in obstruction in not allowing yourself an awareness of your choices, or that you even hold choices or the ability to create them or to choose them.
TOM: I can see that we bind ourselves.
ELIAS: And this is what is creating of the confusion and the tremendous expression of conflict. This is what creates the situations of challenge which individuals present to themselves, in allowing themselves to view how they may move rather than viewing themselves as being stuck, and beyond even being stuck, being oppressed, and the oppression may be expressed not merely by others, but by self also.
TOM: Right. I work with hundreds of people in my profession, and I have been creating, I think, efficiently, and I realize now that I’m placing myself as a victim when I think, well, certain people aren’t creating as efficiently; they’re creating the conflict. I’m pushing that, and saying that I do not create my own choices.
ELIAS: Correct. As you express in any moment that you are not creating what is occurring within your reality and that you are not CHOOSING to be creating your reality — even within the moments that you express that you ARE creating your reality but you are continuing to associate that you are not CHOOSING it — each of those expressions tremendously reinforces this aspect of duplicity, and in this, you deny yourselves choice, and the denial of choice is the expression of victim.
TOM: Exactly. I was viewing how I do that.
ELIAS: And in the role of victim, you automatically express in association with blame, which is a tremendous force of energy in a reinforcement of duplicity.
It matters not which direction you project this expression of blame, be it to a situation, a circumstance, another individual, or to yourself — or to the universe or to your higher self or to other essences — it matters not. It is a forceful expression of energy which feeds the aspect of victim and reinforces the strength of the beliefs of duplicity.
You ALL create this action very often, and you do not pay attention and you do not notice, and you do not recognize all of the moments that you are creating that role within yourselves or are projecting energy in defining that role concerning another individual, and how you reinforce and perpetuate and validate that to yourselves and to other individuals.
And THIS is the reason that so very many of you are objectively creating situations, actions, circumstances, interactions that are examples that you may view of this very subject matter, and in that presentment, it allows you to view all of the layers of this expression and all of its camouflages.
Now; this is not to say that you may not be interactive with another individual that may be creating tremendous challenge within their experience and not express a genuineness in compassion. Compassion is not what you define as sympathy. Compassion is not concern.
TOM: It’s more related to it?
ELIAS: An expression of compassion in genuineness is an allowance of yourself to be recognizing what another individual is choosing to be creating, and in that, creating an emotion of empathy in your expression of your empathic sense, and this emotional expression of empathy is your genuine understanding of what another individual may be creating, but without an association of viewing them as a victim.
And let me express to you, Malhai, do not fool yourself, for many, many, many times, individuals are interactive with each other, and they may be — and YOU may be — expressing that you are not viewing the other individual as a victim.
And I express to you that were you to be paying attention to self in genuineness and allowing yourself an intimate familiarity with self, you may surprise yourself that your expression is in actuality — concerning the other individual — a definition of being a victim.
TOM: I’ve noticed when I don’t pay attention to self (inaudible).
ELIAS: And in this, this is another layer of what you are presenting to yourself — the turning of your attention to self, and not distracting yourself through the automatic responses associated with your beliefs. Therefore, you are also presenting to yourself the allowance to be viewing your own behaviors, your own association with your lack of ability to be creating or to be choosing, which is another viewing of being a victim.
You are also offering yourselves the opportunity to become familiar with your expressions in how you automatically associate, and how you may stop that action. It is not merely that you are noticing — which you ARE noticing — but that you are also allowing yourselves to recognize your own power, your own abilities, your freedom of choice.
TOM: Yes, and you can turn things in an instant.
Now; let me express to you also, in many, many, many of these situations that individuals are presenting to themselves now, you are creating, as I have stated, obvious objective expressions that hold elements of clarity and create an ease for you to view these aspects of duplicity.
And in many situations and in many moments, [in] the mere action of allowing yourselves to notice what you are creating in genuineness, and the mere action of noticing the association with the influence of the beliefs, you are also now almost automatically allowing yourselves an identification of what you are associating with, and in that action, many times and in many instances, individuals ARE allowing themselves to instantaneously move their perceptions. The mere recognition of some aspects of this belief that you are addressing to allows you to instantaneously move your perception slightly.
TOM: Which puts energy into integration of the different concepts (inaudible).
Now; this is also offering each of you an opportunity to genuinely pay attention in relation to much of the information that I have offered to you previously in preparation for your participation with these types of experiences, and in this, you allow yourselves the opportunity to implement, in your actual objective reality, the actions of relaxing, the action of stopping, the action of noticing what YOU are creating in your expressions and in your behaviors.
It offers you an avenue to be lessening separation, lessening your automatic expressions in tension, opening more to the realization and recognition of your choices, and moving you each into a genuine expression of acceptance. But let me also me reminding of you that the acceptance of self — and familiarizing yourself with YOU and holding your attention with YOU — is first.
TOM: And it’s sometimes easy, when you get really busy, to be focusing on the objective, the outer focusing, because attention on self seems to be quite a bit subjective.
ELIAS: Not necessarily. It is both, in actuality. There is a harmony that is created.
Do not delude yourself with the thought process that you may be distracted objectively and not paying attention to self objectively, but you are paying attention to self subjectively. I shall remind you, your subjective and your objective move in harmony. Therefore, if you are not paying attention to self objectively, you are also not paying attention to self subjectively.
TOM: I guess I know exactly what you’re saying there.
ELIAS: These are merely different expressions of you, but they are not separated. They ARE you. They are different avenues of awareness. They are different expressions of imagery and communication. But they are both you, and they are moving in harmony with each other continuously.
TOM: So if you’re ignoring one, you’re ignoring both.
ELIAS: You are correct.
TOM: So pay attention to how they move in harmony to each other.
ELIAS: Correct, and if you are distracting yourself from paying attention to self objectively, I shall express to you that you are also distracting yourself subjectively.
TOM: Yes, I know. (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) That’s something I’ve been doing for a couple of months, I think.
ELIAS: Now; in this, you may be offering yourself more of an objective understanding of how you are creating certain expressions that appear to you in your perception as accidents.
If you are catching your finger within a door, you may objectively express to yourself, “Oh, I was not paying attention, and I have caught my finger in the door.”
Your subjective attention is not moving in the expression of, “I am paying attention, and I am purposefully moving your choice into catching your finger in the door.” No! Your subjective attention is distracted also, and not paying attention.
TOM: So if they’re both not paying attention, you would create cutting your finger.
ELIAS: You may. But there are many layers to all of these actions. For in actuality, there is some element of your objective and subjective awarenesses that are both aware of what you are creating within every moment, but you are not allowing yourselves the type of attention that you wish to be. As I have stated previously, you are offering yourself the automatic pilot attention.
TOM: And we’re all excellent at automatic pilot!
ELIAS: Ah, and you are! But in this, you also create many opportunities to move into the role of victim, and to deny yourself your viewing of your choices.
TOM: And now, as we accept these beliefs and move into more of an acceptance and noticing of ourselves, our automatic pilot actually becomes a new automatic....
ELIAS: It is moving from automatic pilot into manual control in this time framework! Ha ha ha!
TOM: (Laughing) Okay!
ELIAS: And subsequently, it shall move into a different type of automatic expression. Ha ha!
TOM: I guess I was kind of relating to that in terms of, it seems to add a different ... it’s automatic pilot, but it’s within acceptance.
ELIAS: You are challenging yourselves quite strongly in this movement and this concept of acceptance, and you are evidencing that to yourselves quite strongly objectively, not merely individually, but also en masse.
TOM: Yes, we are! (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) And it appears that there are major changes this year, even in our government.
ELIAS: You are correct, and have you not been anticipating these alterations/changes? Do you associate that merely you individually shall change? You are inserting a shift in consciousness into your objective reality throughout your globe. Shall that not be reflected in establishments such as your government?
TOM: Yes, it shall. The thing that I thought was, in the current linear time, it was going to be a little bit farther down the road.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! I shall express to you, brace yourselves! You ARE moving. (Chuckling)
TOM: And quickly!
ELIAS: You ARE moving quickly! (Chuckling) View how the mass expression is so clearly and precisely reflecting the individual expressions. There are expressions of high drama and tremendous confusion, and an inability to create a choice.
TOM: Yes. (Laughing) This is like the current wave....
ELIAS: You are correct, and in this, there is the experience of conflict, for the choice is unclear.
TOM: And it seems like it will remain that way for (inaudible).
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, you are correct, and in this, you present yourselves with yet again another layer of all of this movement.
TOM: Yes, and it’s very interesting and exciting!
ELIAS: Be remembering, there are no absolutes, and many times, what you view may not necessarily be what it appears to be, (chuckling) for there are many layers. Ha ha ha! And I shall express to you, my friend, let the games begin! Ha ha ha!
TOM: (Laughing) This is why you’ve been telling us for five years to keep looking to self, to be accepting of self.
TOM: Because this will reveal many more layers.
ELIAS: Yes, and to be NOTICING.
ELIAS: And I continue to be reminding of you that you have begun in this year the insertion of this shift in consciousness, and view the upheaval that you present to yourselves. But also view the excitement that you view in the allowance for change, and the opening to the freedoms of choice.
TOM: That’s what makes it so exciting — new choices, new creations.
ELIAS: You are correct. Let me also express to you one final statement.
Throughout all of these actions, all of these presentments, all of these challenges that so very many individuals are presenting to themselves now, and the difficulties and the conflict that they may be experiencing, one aspect that they may attempt to allow themselves each, in the midst of what they are creating, is the allowance to turn their perception and discover the fun within themselves, even within the midst of the challenge; to allow themselves to incorporate the humor and the laughter, and to be seeking out the fun that [they] may be allow[ing] themselves through turning their perception in that direction ever so slightly.
This may be quite helpful to individuals as they continue to move and present themselves with these tremendous challenges and struggles and conflicts.
TOM: Oh yes, very much so. Well, I appreciate your invitation to me. It has helped me to begin noticing a little more of what I’ve been ignoring the last couple of months.
ELIAS: And I am acknowledging to you in your listening and your compliance.
TOM: I guess it’s ... I wasn’t sure how this was gonna work out if we were having secret sessions! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
TOM: But actually (inaudible).
ELIAS: And I express to you, my friend, that it may be helpful and beneficial to not merely yourself, but many other individuals also. Therefore, once again I am acknowledging of you in your compliance with my urging.
TOM: Well, I appreciate your urging because I needed it. (They both laugh) It’s like seeing yourself (inaudible), although you were much more gentle about that. (Elias laughs) Well, this has been great. I appreciate it. It’s helped me a lot in a lot of the things I’ve been doing with beliefs, and I’m sure it will help others too.
ELIAS: Very well. I express tremendous affection to you. You may offer my greetings to Sena also. I anticipate our next meeting. I shall be paying attention to the observance of YOU paying attention!
TOM: Well, I appreciate that, and I will be paying attention to your paying attention! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! Very well! We shall play the game together!
ELIAS: To you in great affection, my friend, I express au revoir.
TOM: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 12:44 p.m.
