Participants: Mary (Michael) and Paul (Xutrah).
Elias arrives at 4:23 PM. (Arrival time is 19 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon.
PAUL: Bon jour, mon cher ami!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Bon jour!
PAUL: Well, I did it! I'm sitting across the table from you. I created this.
ELIAS: And so you are, and so you have! (Chuckling)
PAUL: And it's wonderful. (Pause) Where shall I go first? I have a new grandson, and his name is Luke. I'd like his particulars.
ELIAS: Very well. (Pause) Essence name, Zaile, Z-A-I-L-E (zale); essence family, Zuli; alignment, Sumari; orientation, common.
PAUL: This ties in. My mother disengaged physical focus some 15 years ago, and when I made contact with her relatively recently, six months ago or so, I had the strong impression that she was in transition. Recently, within the last week, I feel that she has exited transition. Are those impressions correct?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: Because I feel that she was having some fun. (Paul and Elias chuckle) Because my grandson was born on her birthday, and I had the impression that Zaile is a fragmentation of my mother's essence. (Pause)
ELIAS: Not fragmentation, but there is an aspect of consciousness which is coupled in this particular focus.
PAUL: Okay, could you amplify?
ELIAS: At times, essences choose to be projecting an aspect of themselves into a particular focus of attention. This is not what you may term to be a mergence of essences and is not a coupling of essences, and it is not in actuality two essences occupying one focus of attention in physical manifestation; but that certain focuses of an essence may choose to be projecting an aspect of themself into the manifestation of another focus of another essence.
In this, there is an allowance of that focus of attention, which is non-physically focused, to be experiencing and participating within a physical manifestation without holding its attention in that manifestation. It, in a manner of speaking, receives the experience but is not focusing its attention in that physical manifestation. It is merely an aspect of the other focus of attention of the other essence.
This is what you are allowing yourself an impression of in connection with these two essences, that there is an aspect of that essence in this new manifestation, but it is not a fragmentation.
PAUL: Is this similar to what you spoke to in the public session on Saturday, where an essence takes an aspect of itself and, shall we say, looks through the eyes of another focus?
ELIAS: This is a different action. That which we were speaking of previously is a situation in which two or more essences may be actually participating in one focus of attention, one manifestation, in this physical dimension.
In that situation, the essences choose positions. One essence is identified as the directing or primary essence. It is the essence that actually creates the manifestation, the focus of attention. The other essence or essences coupled in that manifestation are what you may term to be recessive. They are observers, and are participating for time frameworks - or throughout the entirety of the focus - merely to be offering themselves the experience of observation in the manifestation that the primary essence chooses to be creating.
In this type of manifestation of what you are speaking of, any focus of any essence may project an aspect of itself into any manifestation within your physical dimension. It may project an aspect of itself into a creature, into an object, into a manifestation of your physical environment. It may project into a manifestation of another individual. This is an aspect of the focus of attention. You hold countless aspects of yourself as a focus of attention.
In this, there is no requirement of attention to be held in that aspect. The focus acquires - in a manner of speaking, for there is no acquisition - but in a manner of speaking, the focus allows itself the assimilation of the experience of the other focus without holding its attention in that focus. The attention of the focus that you identify as the mother moves in its choice of direction. It is not focusing its attention upon physical manifestation, but has projected an aspect of itself into the physical manifestation of this new individual.
Therefore, what you notice at times objectively may be what you associate as a familiar presence. At times, you may be objectively noticing similarities in creations, mannerisms, physical expressions. At times, you may notice similarity in appearance. It is dependent upon the expression of the aspect. It may be a preference of some aspect of your reality. These may be expressed in what you term to be a vague manner, for the most part. But if you are allowing yourself to pay attention, you may be noticing of these types of expressions much more clearly.
The individual, as the small one, does not hold an objective awareness of this presentation; but you, in the recognition of familiarity of energy and expression, may be noticing.
PAUL: Well, it will just give one more opportunity to BE noticing.
ELIAS: Ah! (Laughing)
PAUL: Ah yes, that most difficult task! But it does get easier with time and practice. So, thank you for that as well!
ELIAS: You are welcome.
PAUL: Ah, I pulled out my list. About two and half years ago, on my way from the bedroom into the bathroom, clear as day I heard a voice that said, "Paul, take care of yourself. You are going to be around for a while." Was that a future probable self, an aspect of myself? What was that?
ELIAS: This is another aspect of you in this focus.
PAUL: Okay, I can understand that.
ELIAS: You offer yourself communication in creative and interesting manners.
PAUL: We try.
ELIAS: Quite! (Both laugh) And you do!
PAUL: Indeed! I've been spending a little bit of time trying to find other focuses, and really trying to understand how wide and how vast I really am. It's been a fascinating experience. My family intent says that I'm not going fast enough, but I attempt to recall your words and say, "Let's just proceed." That works sometimes.
ELIAS: Very well.
PAUL: Ah, this was a fun one. In a dream relatively recently, I had the impression that I was feeding a large watery creature. I've been assuming that that is an other dimensional focus of mine.
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: It was quite a heartwarming type of experience. I really enjoyed it.
ELIAS: I am understanding.
PAUL: I contacted a current focus, present timeframe, in Australia. She was in a wheelchair, and I think that she was part of the Olympic Games. She was in some sort of procession or something.
ELIAS: Games, not Olympic Games. Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: How many other focuses do I have in this timeframe?
ELIAS: Beside yourself and this one individual?
PAUL: I hold quite a fascination for beloved Mozart. I had the impression that I was Maria Anna Mozart, his sister.
PAUL: That explains that one!
ELIAS: Ah, you are accomplishing well in your impressions and your paying attention to yourself in your investigations.
PAUL: Why, thank you! (Elias chuckles)
This is a hard one. In a TFE that I did with Lawrence and Alon - right there, as a matter of fact (indicating the couch where Elias is sitting) - I connected with a French focus in which I was engaged in quite nefarious activities, shall we say. I had an accomplice or shall I say much more of a cohort in that, who I identified as Jacques. I have since had impressions that it may have been you in the focus of Monsieur Bodreaux.
ELIAS: And you are correct.
PAUL: Why did I call you Jacques?
ELIAS: (Chuckling) I may express to you, this is the identification of yourself.
PAUL: Ah! (Laughs) Okay! (Sighs) I also had the impression that I was the instrument of your disengagement in that focus.
ELIAS: And perhaps you shall be allowing yourself an exchange with a focus of the essence of Larkshire in this time framework, who also participated in that moment. You are correct. (Paul sighs again, and Elias chuckles)
It is merely a choice, my friend. It matters not. And it is not your choice but the choice of that focus to disengage in that manner and in that time framework.
PAUL: Thank you. I've been having a lot of bleed through activity associated with that and...
ELIAS: Larkshire also participated in watching, and has experienced tremendous unnecessary guilt. (Paul laughs) Such a WASTE of energy! This has been the choice of experience, and we all - and you all - choose to be manifest in the manner that you are manifest, and to disengage in the manner that you disengage. It is merely a choice. It matters not! (Smiling, and chuckles)
PAUL: Okay. Being a physically focused individual at the moment, I need processing time. But thank you.
ELIAS: Very well. Do not entertain this negativity, so to speak, for it is entirely unnecessary.
ELIAS: Very well. (Chuckling)
PAUL: Very well. (Pause) A couple, three nights ago, as I was toying with the idea of projections of consciousness, I made the decision to meet you at the pond. That was you there, was it not?
ELIAS: I am ALWAYS compliant.
PAUL: I hope that next time I'm there I have more time than to just shout hello! (Elias laughs) It was entirely too brief.
ELIAS: And as you practice, you shall allow yourself more of an interaction and what you term to be the incorporation of time, for you become more familiar with your own energy and your ability to sustain this action.
PAUL: Yes, it is unfamiliar.
PAUL: Fun, much fun!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) And I may express to you, I am always encouraging of fun!
PAUL: I like that. A new dear friend, Caroll - a delightful focus of essence - we had more than a couple discussions about the question that I asked in our recent session about the energy exchange of Elan, and neither of us could quite understand your answer to my question. You confirmed that it was an energy exchange as opposed to a channeling, but said that there was no family belonging to associated with that.
PAUL: So it is my question that this is an essence but is not choosing to participate in this physical dimension, but rather participates in another physical dimension?
ELIAS: You are correct.
PAUL: And hence would have other families of consciousness that those physical focuses, or that essence, would belong to?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. Some physical dimensions do create this type of grouping and associations, and some do not.
PAUL: And by extension that would say then that the physical dimension that Elan is focused within does not incorporate...
ELIAS: You are correct. THIS physical dimension incorporates these groupings of essences that you identify as essence families. This is quite purposeful and specific in the design of this particular physical dimension.
As I have stated, this particular physical dimension is EXTREMELY intricate. It holds tremendous diversity and is quite expansive in its expression of capacity for exploration. Therefore, in the construct of this tremendous expression of diversity, essences have formed these groupings to be expressing most efficiently the design and movement of this particular physical dimension. Other physical dimensions do not incorporate this type of intricacy of their design, and therefore do not require, in your terms, that type of organization, so to speak.
PAUL: We're so very fond of organizing things aren't we? (Both chuckle) So, the energy exchange that occurs, there must be something in common that binds that dimension to this one. Is that through Regional Area 2?
ELIAS: No. It is not a question of binding together dimensions.
As you are aware, you are participating in this shift in consciousness, which incorporates an involvement of all essences associated with this physical dimension.
In the movement of this shift in consciousness, as you are widening your awareness and dropping the veil of separation, you also allow yourselves to be opening to more information. You draw information to yourselves, which is responded to by other essences, for you are dropping the veil and, in a manner of speaking, creating an invitation, that you may be offering yourselves many avenues of communication that shall be facilitating of this shift in consciousness and in your terms [be] helpful to you in your movement within this shift in consciousness.
I have stated previously, as you continue within this shift, you also present yourselves with more and more information, more and more avenues of communication through consciousness, not merely through THIS action of an energy exchange; but you do incorporate more of these expressions of energy exchanges to be offering yourselves information that you shall allow yourselves to objectively assimilate and therefore lessen the expression of trauma associated with this shift.
You are, in actuality, altering your reality. You are creating a new reality, and in that action there is much of your reality that is unfamiliar to you as you widen your awareness, and this, at times, may be incorporating much trauma. (Chuckles) Therefore, you provide yourselves, quite efficiently, with avenues of communication that shall be helpful to you in avoiding this trauma.
PAUL: Funny you should bring that up! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ah! (Chuckles)
PAUL: Let me give you my impression first, and you can confirm it. I have created for myself something called IBS, which is irritable bowel syndrome. I believe that it has something to do with what we discussed in my second session about cramping of my leg. I feel that it's kind of the same thing, that it involves a cramping and restriction of energy flow.
ELIAS: You are correct.
PAUL: Now I'm going to bring you to someplace that you just love to go!
PAUL: What about a method? Is there an energy center that I can tweak? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ah! (Chuckles) I shall express to you, you may be incorporating manipulation of energy centers and in this may be helpful. I may also express to you that you may be allowing yourself to be paying attention to self and to be noticing your automatic expressions of tension within your physical body consciousness.
For within certain time frameworks and certain exchanges with other individuals and in certain experiences that you create, you also create an automatic expression of tension, and in that automatic expression of tension you are restricting your energy, and you are responding to your own communication with another avenue of communication in restriction of muscles and of specific areas of function of your physical body.
Therefore, I may express to you that you may be incorporating a manipulation of the red energy center and the blue energy center.
ELIAS: For the blue energy center expresses a quality of communication.
ELIAS: In the incorporation of manipulation of the red energy center, you may be incorporating an action of slowing your movement of energy, allowing yourself an expression of relaxation. This red energy center in its low vibrational quality, so to speak, may be helpful in relation to relaxation of your energy.
In the incorporation of the blue energy center, you may be offering yourself more of an awareness of your own communication that you offer to yourself and listening to your expressions of tension, allowing yourself to be noticing that tension that you automatically create, and in relation to the energy expressed within the blue energy center, facilitate more clarity within yourself in paying attention to what you are creating. As you create this action, you shall notice more clearly an identification of specific situations and interactions that you automatically create this tension in relation to.
PAUL: (Laughs) Being common orientation, of course, the first place I take the blue energy center is that I need to be communicating with somebody else. No, it's talking to me! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ah! And you are beginning a recognition, my friend! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: Fits and starts! (Pause) It's nice to just sit, sometimes.
ELIAS: And bask in your own energy.
PAUL: It's nice to be with friends, too. (Pause)
My list ... I feel that I'm accomplishing some in accepting some of the core belief systems surrounding religion and my religious upbringing. And I'm trying to accept, I'm trying to understand, what they are, present myself occasionally with examples of those belief systems, watch the reaction that I have to it, and try to understand it in an effort to accept it. Am I making some inroads in there? I was wondering if you had any observations?
ELIAS: What is YOUR impression? (Chuckling)
PAUL: I haven't let go of them yet. It...
ELIAS: It is not a matter of letting go.
PAUL: Got me!
ELIAS: It is an expression of recognition that it matters not.
ELIAS: You shall not be eliminating these beliefs. They shall continue to be an element of your reality, even within this shift in consciousness.
The movement is the expression of "it matters not." This is the acceptance - merely the recognition that you are not dictated to by them, but that you choose.
PAUL: Thank you. That's what I needed.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
PAUL: What's my heads up this time?
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Express to me!
PAUL: (Laughing) An incorporation of fun!
ELIAS: Ah, and I shall be in agreement with this statement!
PAUL: I've been way too serious lately.
PAUL: Is it my family alignment, this Sumari thing, that I'm so hard on myself? Is it the perfectionism associated with that, or am I just not paying attention?
ELIAS: Not paying attention. (Chuckling)
PAUL: That's it, okay.
ELIAS: Offer to yourself your own permission to be accepting of that which you view to be the shadows of you, and allow yourself a new perception, a turning of your perception, recognizing that you need not be discounting of yourself, you need not be chastising of yourself or striving for perfection, but all that you create within your reality is an expression of you. Those elements of your reality that you view to be the inadequacies or the shortcomings or the mistakes are in actuality perfect also, for they are the shadows that offer you depth. For without the shadow you create a flatness and no depth.
PAUL: Well said, my friend; well said.
(Laughing) Caroll wishes to send his greetings to Casper the Friendly Ghost.
ELIAS: Accepted, and you may express in return. (Chuckling)
PAUL: I shall. Well, we have lots of time yet. Do you have any things that you've been waiting for the opportunity to express?
ELIAS: I do not wait for the opportunity to express. I create the opportunity to express.
PAUL: (Laughing, and snaps fingers) Just like that! (Elias chuckles) Well, you've created the opportunity in that case.
ELIAS: Ah, but this is your opportunity.
PAUL: Okay. Well, I think that I have talked about everything that I need to talk about.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend. Be remembering of your relaxation.
PAUL: Thank you.
ELIAS: It shall incorporate much helpfulness to you. I shall continue to be interactive with you as always, and I offer tremendous affection to you. Receive that expression from myself.
PAUL: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome. In tremendous affection, I express to you, au revoir.
Elias departs at 5:07 PM.
Paul's Note: A minute after the end of the session, I remembered a question I just HAD to ask. Without a moment's hesitation Mary said: "Go ahead!" Thanks Mare!
Elias arrives at 5:09 PM. (Arrival time is 8 seconds.)
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Continuing! Ah! You have summoned the genie once again! Ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: I have created it once again!
ELIAS: Ha ha! How efficient of you!
PAUL: Of course. Discounting at times ... how quickly we go back there! (Elias chuckles) I had a very specific question.
PAUL: Last night, I had a dream that Shynla figured prominently in. She was expounding upon a principle which I could not grasp, but it was worthy to bring my wife back and have her explain it again. I would love to know what that principle was that she was illuminating for us.
ELIAS: Offering to you a communication concerning directions of attention and the lack of separation.
The directions of attention incorporate medians of separation, and in this you view that your reality is viewed the same by all individuals, and in actuality each individual is incorporating their own direction of perception. Your imagery is your roads and the median in the center of the road which separates one direction from another direction.
This is your symbology that you have offered to yourself in the recognition that you create separation, which expresses to you that you are participating in the same reality and you are viewing the same expression of the roads; but Shynla incorporates the information that in actuality you are creating different directions of attention and perceptions, which is the expression of separation. And in this, you are not in actuality creating the identical same realities - you are each creating your own.
PAUL: Oh. (Elias chuckles) Yet, the commonness ... the agreement of reality? I have the feeling of standing in the center.
ELIAS: This is the imagery that you are offering to yourself in the movement into the lack of separation. For the center is the symbol of the veil itself which creates the separation, or the illusion of separation, and you are approaching the veil.
PAUL: Once again.
ELIAS: Once again.
PAUL: Scary. But I KNOW what's on the other side.
PAUL: Yes. Something that I can only translate into a feeling now, but it's much, much more than that.
ELIAS: You are correct. This is the approach of your alteration of your reality.
PAUL: Okay. I thank you again.
ELIAS: You are welcome, again! And we shall continue futurely.
PAUL: We shall.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend. Once again, in great affection, au revoir.
PAUL: Au revoir.
Elias departs (once again) at 5:15 PM.
