New Transcribers Needed
If you would like to help with the transcripts, contact Bobbi H. at email@example.com
In Memoriam -- Daryl Horton
Daryl Horton passed away in December. Many will remember her from email lists, as a transcriber, and from various group sessions over the years. We will miss her, and wish her well on her continued adventures in consciousness. We will provide more info next month, as we are still awaiting details, but wanted to acknowledge her contributions to the Elias forum.
Many of you remember the wonderful Elias index that Bobbi Houle began 7-8 years ago. She had to stop that work when she assumed lead transcriber duties after Vicki Pendley passed in 2001. Bobbi’s index cover sessions 2-500 (session 1 was not recorded). Luana Ring came along, and continued Bobbi’s work and did sessions 501-682. So it’s time to ask for someone who would like to contribute to the Elias forum to step up and continue this important work. These overviews become a valuable resource in the Library, and also are used in each Transcript as keywords of local and Internet search engines.
If you are interested in contributing to the Elias forum legacy projects, please contact Paul H. at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Spanish Section in Progress
Thanks to the hard work of Olga Zuvic, Crizi Poust, George DeMello, and Gerhard Fuchs we’re working on adding a Spanish section to the Elias forum website. As most know, Spanish is spoken by more folks than English, so this work will make Elias available to hundreds of millions of potential new readers.
Olga and George are doing most of the translation work, and Gerhard generously sent us some HTML versions of George’s work from his website, making the workload a bit easier. So many thanks to all of you!
Archive Project Updates
The DVD Archive is one of those “behind the scenes” projects whose goal is to ensure that the legacy of the Elias forum continues long after we’re gone. At last count, Mary had recorded over 1,800 sessions on videotape! Since DVDs take up less space, we began to transfer the ’95 sessions from Ron and Cathy Churchman’s video archive. We’ve finished through session 464. Michael Friedman recently volunteered to continue the DVD process, so Ron will be sending him tapes. Thanks Michael!
The 1995 transcripts are one third done, as we have finished through session 21. That means only 42 more to go!
Support Our Work
We’d like to express our heart-felt appreciation to those of you who continue support our work and help defray expenses on the website. Thank you!

Gem of the Month
The Gem of the Month is a regular feature that provides an excerpt from a recent transcript that captures a snapshot of essential Elias.
This month’s gem is taken from Hea’s private session:
HEA: “This problem that I have with my parents, it also extends to other parts of my life, like work.”
ELIAS: “I am quite aware.”
HEA: “It’s parallel.”
“Now; let us perhaps explore other actions that you may engage that may be helpful in altering your perception and allowing you to express more trust of yourself and therefore express more of your freedom and not concern yourself with the absolute of disengaging the environment with your parents. But perhaps for a temporary time framework you may be engaging exercises that shall allow you to move your attention and become more flexible and also to become more familiar with you.
“Now; in this, perhaps you may engage the action of noticing each time you begin to project your attention to your mother and are not paying attention to you.
“Now; this occurs in time frameworks in which you are not actually even physically engaging this individual but you may be projecting your attention in thought concerning this individual.
“Now; each time that you notice that you are projecting your attention away from yourself, acknowledge yourself, for you are noticing.
“Now; once you are noticing, allow yourself to stop and move your attention to some aspect of you in the present now. Allow yourself to choose one expression of yourself that you appreciate within yourself, and acknowledge that. The point of this exercise is to interrupt your automatic familiar patterns, which allows you to move your attention.
“You have become very familiar with holding your attention in certain directions and continuing to reinforce expressions within yourself of blame and judgment. The point is to interrupt those patterns and those automatic responses. Recognize that if you are experiencing discomfort in association with your parents, this is being generating from within you, not from them.
“Now; let me also offer to you another exercise for the moments in which you are physically engaging these individuals and you are experiencing frustration or discomfort or anxiety. In those moments, as you begin to feel those feelings, those expressions surfacing within yourself, allow yourself to notice, stop and visualize yourself to be alone. In a manner of speaking, pretend that the other individual disappears. For a moment, allow yourself to magically generate the disappearance of the other individual, regardless of what they are expressing. In the moment that you generate that individual to be invisible and to not exist within your physical presence, examine what are you doing that is creating the feeling that you are experiencing – not what is the other individual doing, for they are now disappeared and no longer exist within your room. In this, examine what YOU are doing that generates these signals, these feelings.
“Your feelings are signals. Beyond the signal is a message; that is a communication. Emotions are communications, and they are highly efficient for they also incorporate signals to gain your attention. The signal is the feeling. But the feeling does not offer you the communication; it does not offer you information. Once you identify the feeling and attach a term to it, such as disappointment, you may move your attention to the communication of that signal, what you are communicating to yourself. The manner in which you discover what that communication is is to pay attention to what you are actually doing in that moment.
“Now; this may appear in this conversation to be quite simple or a simplistic exercise, but in actuality, I may express to you, I am quite aware of the challenge and the difficulty that is expressed in this action initially. As you practice it shall become easier, but initially it may be quite challenging.
“For the automatic association as you ask yourself ‘what am I doing in this now,’ is to move your attention once again automatically outside of yourself and express to yourself, ‘I am doing nothing! I am listening and the other individual is generating this action which is causing me discomfort.’ No. That is the snare. Therefore, you may recognize the challenge in actually paying attention to what you are doing. Perhaps it appears to you that what you are doing is nothing but listening, but in actuality you have generated the scenario, so...”
HEA: “Why did I generate the scenario?”
ELIAS: “To engage this process.”
HEA: “To awaken, you mean?”
ELIAS: “In your terms, yes, to become familiar with you.”
HEA: “To become stronger, is that it?”
HEA: “That’s what I thought also – do I dare to make me stronger? Is that the ultimate challenge for me?”
ELIAS: “In a manner of speaking.”
HEA: “So through this way, I will gain my re-remembrance.”
HEA: “So I’m almost there! Yes, Elias? Am I?”
ELIAS: (Laughs) “You are moving. It is not a race which incorporates a finish line, my friend.”
HEA: “I know, but I so much want to be there! You don’t understand. (Elias laughs) ‘What do I have to do to be there?’ I keep asking myself. I meditate, I read, I examine myself, and I just am not seeing any result of this.”
ELIAS: “You may read and read and read, and you may think and think and think, and this is not necessarily what shall generate your freedom. What shall generate your freedom is to familiarize yourself with you and to genuinely pay attention to what you do.”
HEA: “Yes. I keep creating hard times for myself, with work, with my parents. I want to stop it but I keep creating it!”
ELIAS: “Pay attention to what motivates you, which may be quite enlightening.” [session 1307, March 28, 2003]

Monthly Musings - In Appreciation
First, we'd like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and abundant 2006! Last month we explored the belief system of the senses. This month we are going to take a break from our series on the ten belief systems, and take time to appreciate the simple gifts we all are blessed with every day, wherever we find ourselves. We'll return to our exploration of the ten belief systems next month with religion/spirituality.
I wanted to share a recent email of appreciation from Luana Alika/Ring, whose smiling countenance many of you know from the Fresno group sessions, and her Session Overviews and Glossary in the Library. She expresses what a lot of us feel about the folks behind the scenes who do the hard work, year in and year out, of transcribing and emailing the sessions, as well as those participants who courageously share their private sessions so others can benefit.
Bobbi Houle forwarded Luana's email, and it shows how Daryl Horton's contributions to the Elias forum continue to ripple outward in time, even though she no longer with us physically. In broader terms, this applies to everyone who contributes in any way to the forum.
And thank your Luana for putting into words the deep appreciation that so many of us feel to the folks who make the Elias forum possible!

Order The Shift: A Time of Change
Publication date 25 October 2004
For more information, please contact email@example.com
At this time in our world we are all asking questions of ourselves and others such as, “What is my purpose?” and “What is truth?” and “What is death?” We are questioning the validity of our governments and our religious institutions. The Shift: A Time of Change offers the answer to these questions.
First time author David Tate has waded through the voluminous information delivered by Elias/Mary Ennis to compile a GEM of the Elias material and has shaped The Shift: A Time of Change into a definitive reference guide of the most popular topics of the Elias material.
All of the readers of the popular Seth/Jane Roberts books will identify with the information delivered by Elias/Mary Ennis in that it is channelled material. Like Seth, Elias is an essence who brings forth explanations of our world, ourselves and that we create our reality. The mantra, “You create your own reality,” was originated by Seth. Seth further explained that our beliefs create our reality. However, Elias clarifies that in order to change our realities we must accept our beliefs.
In The Shift, Elias delves deep into the fundamental questions we all have concerning truth, karma, beliefs systems and God.
“You are moving to the creation of a new expression of your physical reality as you know it. In this, not only your technology shall advance and be created differently, but all of your reality shall be altered and shall be different.”
The Shift: A Time of Change is a compilation of transcripts that have been delivered by Elias/Mary Ennis since 1995. The phenomenon of Elias began in 1995 and, through Mary Ennis, Elias has given private and group readings to people around the globe. This book encompasses the gems of that information that addresses everyone on the planet.
This is the first book within a series.

Order The Cellophane Prophecy
Wickedly funny sendup of new age mega-seller, The Celestine Prophecy, a novel about a man who goes to Peru to find manuscripts that contain the secrets of life. His intentions are good – he wishes to share the manuscripts with the world – but his efforts are impeded by power-hungry factions, extremists, and high-ranking church officials.
In J.K. Greenfield’s parody, The Cellophane Prophecy, our hero’s intentions are not so good! Set up by an ex-girlfriend promising sexual favors, he goes to Italy to uncover manuscripts said to contain the secrets of life-secrets, he finds, like “If you stare at something long enough, it will glow.”
The book is a must for people who read The Celestine Prophecy and found themselves in need of a laugh, or even a subplot! Treat yourself and your loved ones to The Cellophane Prophecy.
