ELIAS: “As we have discussed previously, you would need to incorporate many, many, many, many focuses to experience all of the aspects of all of the subjects or feelings that are possible. Therefore, you choose counterparts and splinters to experience with you simultaneously.” [session 46, October 18, 1995]
MARGOT: “Since I began reading the sessions with this forum, I’ve had a difficult time conceptualizing your terminologies of fragment and splinter. Will you tell me if I’ve got it right if I say: ‘We always-existing essences, having created this universe and all of its species, have been manifesting since before the beginning in all dimensions in this galaxy, and the only way to take up a beginning focus in any of earth’s dimensions is by means of fragmentation, or splintering from an aspect of our own individual essence.”
ELIAS: Incorrect. It is not necessary to be fragmented to be a focus.
MARGOT: And if that is true, then there must have been a seeding of each individual essence as earth was being created, so that there would be an aspect of ourselves already here for us to fragment or splinter from when we began manifesting in earth’s dimensions.
ELIAS: I shall express to Jeselle [Margot] that she has quite efficiently twisted these concepts into more convolution than do these individuals present! (Laughter) In the terminology used, there has been no seeding! There have been essences in groups, which we identify as families, that are directly connected to the creation of this dimension and physical reality in its entirety – your entire known universe. This is only one universe, which occupies the same space arrangement as all other universes. You are merely aware of this one. There have been, as has been expressed, essences creating this planet and planetary system, which have been identified in relation to the Seers. There have also been essences in the role, ‘before the beginning,’ of the Dream Walkers, but this would not be a seeding or a fragmentation, and is not related to the subject of splintering. This is a function of essence.
Essence is an element of consciousness. It is the personality identification, in individuality, of consciousness. It is not separate. Therefore, there is no ‘thing’ or entity which existed ‘first’ and was creating of all, or seeding of each dimension. There is only consciousness. (Pause)
There are areas of consciousness. There are focuses of consciousness. There are attentions of consciousness. There are identifications of personality; but all is within the whole of consciousness. None is separated. No aspect is greater than any other aspect of consciousness, and no aspect of consciousness existed ’before’ any other; for there has never been a ‘beginning‘.” [session 191a, July 10, 1997]
MICHAEL: “Okay. Now, I’ve also heard the term ‘splinter’ used.
MICHAEL: What is that?
ELIAS: This would be a particular type of aspect of self. Splinters are those aspects of self which parallel you within a focus. As you manifest within a physical dimension, as I have stated, you hold countless you’s. These are the aspects of you. Some of these aspects of you are quite parallel to you.
Now; a parallel you may be projected by you within the focus and may be manifest physically in this dimension. Therefore, there may be another individual that holds the same essence as you and also parallels you within your experience and creation, but this individual has been projected by you into physical form, into physical manifestation, to be experiencing elements of your physical manifestation that you choose not to be experiencing.
MICHAEL: Okay, so a splinter would be kind of like if you held ... ’cause that goes along with another one of my questions. You gave Ron an example of his essence choosing to manifest itself in the same time frame. So this is similar to that, then? It’s your essence manifesting itself in the same time frame?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. You may hold several focuses within the same time framework of one essence. This is not necessarily a splintering action. The splinter action is created by the focus. This be the difference.
If you look to the whole of essence, it may project several focuses of itself into a physical dimension within the same time framework. You, for example, may be you, and simultaneously within this present now, you may also hold three or four other focuses of essence throughout your globe which shall be experiencing different aspects of your physical dimension for the purity of the experiences.
A splinter is more likened to a probable self. A probable self is created by the focus, which is you. A probable self is not created by the whole of essence, so to speak. It is created by the focus as a projection within alternate realities which appears in choices that have been NOT manifest into your official reality.
Each time you create a choice in your official reality – a choice of substance, so to speak, not a choice of, ‘Shall I rise from my bed this morning or shall I sleep?’ But in choices that are altering of your direction within your focus – ‘Shall I choose this school? Shall I choose to live in this location? Shall I choose to be engaging in this relationship with another individual?’ – these types of choices are inserted into your official reality. The choices that you have NOT chosen to insert into your official reality become those probabilities which are also manifest, but create probable realities in parallel dimensions to this particular dimension.
Therefore, a splinter may be likened to the probable self in that it is a projection of you. The difference is that this particular type of projection may be projected into your officially accepted physical reality. You may meet another aspect of yourself that has been projected by you into this particular physical focus, and it shall be another individual holding its own integrity and creating its own choices within its own focus. It shall remain an element or an aspect of your essence unless it is choosing through its own desire to be fragmented and become its own essence.” [session 279, May 12, 1998]
MARGOT: “Do splinters retain the same tone as the essence?
ELIAS: As they are continuing to be a splintered aspect, yes, they shall hold the same or figuratively the same tone as essence, for you hold an awareness that each aspect of essence holds a very slight difference in the aspect of the tone of essence. But overall or generally speaking, yes, they do hold the same tone as essence.
Now; if they are choosing to be fragmenting, their tone would then be altered.” [session 306, August 09, 1998]
JOANNE: “He’ll be happy to hear that! (Laughing) I’m not sure which question to go with next ... okay, I picked one.
I got information from Didi, the other aspect of my essence, that I had created a splinter to go back to the beginning of my focus to experience no fear. I think – no, I know – that I have objectively realized some of this no fear, but I know there’s still more that I haven’t objectively learned about or felt or know. I was wondering if you could help me get in touch with this. (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes. Now; in this situation, what you have offered to yourself is information in conjunction with an action that you have chosen that may allow you an avenue to be moving through certain issues that you hold.
In this, I shall confirm to you that you have created a type of splinter, but this would be of the type of a temporary individual. Are you following thus far?
ELIAS: Very well. In this, the temporary individual is manifest and experiences an expressed direction to be creating experiences that shall offer you an efficient avenue to be moving through certain elements of fear.
Now; this may be helpful to you in allowing you to access this other manifestation of yourself, this temporary individual, and you may be accomplishing this action through visualization, through meditation, or through your dream imagery. It matters not which method you choose to be interactive with this individual.
But as you allow yourself to be connecting with this individual, you may also be assimilating within yourself the experiences that are being addressed to, and this shall provide you with an avenue to be addressing to YOUR individual fears.
In a manner of speaking, what you have created is a splintering of that element of yourself which creates and holds to the energy of fear, and therefore, in splintering this element of yourself, figuratively speaking, away from yourself, you remove yourself from the perpetuation of the action of creating the fear, and in a manner of speaking, you stop the continuation of this creation.
Therefore, in another manner of speaking, you place this creation in a hold, and in that holding state, it does not create itself further, so to speak. This allows you a type of removal, that you do not continue to perpetuate the creation of the fearfulness and that you may address to its creation, and therefore move through this particular issue. Are you understanding?
JOANNE: Oh yes. Yes, definitely! In the visualizations or in the dreams I’ve been having lately, is it a dark-haired woman – I don’t know how to explain this – is that the splinter? Because she seems to be there all the time in my dreams, and kind of there when issues come up. Like, she was sitting there trying to get me to talk and say things, and in this dream I had a mouthful of food, and I just wouldn’t open my mouth and speak. Even when I started to taste peas, which I hate, I still wouldn’t open my mouth and talk. But then a couple of days later, a situation came up where I was hesitant to say anything, but I did, and I felt really good about opening my mouth and talking. So I’m wondering, is that how I’m working through this?
ELIAS: I am understanding of what you are expressing.
In this, I express to you, yes, as you allow yourself to be interactive and connecting with this individual, you may also be engaging your avenue. This is the projection that you allow yourself to view of the temporary individual.” [session 492, October 26, 1999]
