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 the recent Brattleboro, VT group session:
ELIAS: “... Intrusiveness is an action in which you project energy to another individual intentionally, knowing that it is most likely to be received and configured in a hurtful manner. This is an irresponsible act; this is not an expression of essence. This is not a natural expression of essence.
“I am understanding that within this time framework there is tremendous challenge in association with this wave addressing to truths, and many individuals are experiencing considerable difficulty and confusion. But your difficulty and your conflict may be considerably lessened if you are genuinely paying attention to your own energies and to how you are projecting, and being responsible in your projections to other individuals.
“For I may express to you, the reason that intrusiveness is not a natural expression of essence is that within consciousness it is known that any action that you incorporate with other individuals, with other essences, if it is intended to be intrusive or hurtful, what it accomplishes is being much more hurtful to yourself. It may not appear in that manner initially, but I may assure you that you cannot incorporate an action of hurtfulness without being more hurtful to yourself. And in that hurtfulness to yourself, you do deny yourself awareness and you do deny yourself choice, and you weep. (Pause)
“Denial of choice is not a natural expression of essence; intrusiveness is not a natural expression of essence.
“Understand that I am not incorporating this information concerning wars or violence, for those actions – even murder – are not necessarily intrusive, for individuals may be merely expressing their preferences, and they engage agreement. Wars are not incorporated without agreement; violence is not incorporated without agreement.
“The type of intrusiveness that I am speaking to you of is the type of intrusiveness that devalues, the type that attempts to block choice, the type of irresponsibility that perpetuates trauma, that devalues the expressions regardless of whether you agree. I have expressed many times, you may be accepting and not be in agreement; you may be accepting and cooperating with each other and not agree with each other and not LIKE expressions of each other. But to intentionally express an energy to any other individual of devaluation of their self, to intentionally disregard the value of another individual is intrusive. And you do not necessarily devalue each other in violence, contrary to how it appears.
“You devalue in expressing ‘it matters not,’ in a distorted context. I have been expressing this term of ‘it matters not’ from the onset of my interactions with all of you, but I also have expressed the definition that I am not expressing that nothing matters. But in the expression of ‘it matters not,’ it is the lack of a judgment, the recognition that there is no judgment in association with certain choices or any choices, but not that choices do not matter, merely that they are not judged. But obviously they do matter, for the choices that you engage set your directions, and if you are incorporating certain choices in certain directions you may be expressing intrusiveness.” [session 1532, March 20, 2002]

Monthly Musings - Reflections on the Ninth Anniversary of the Elias Forum
Last month we explored Who is the “You” in You Create Your Own Reality? This month, we’re going to celebrate the ninth anniversary of the Elias forum. Has it really been that long? Nine years, one for each essence family. Whoohoo! Congratulations to Mary, and to the many people who have contributed their time, energy, and resources to the forum over the years.
Did you know that Mary’s been working for some time on a book about her experiences with Elias and the forum. Should be a great one! So we’ll eventually get the skinny on the origins of the phenomenon and how she manages to keep her sanity in the midst of such an unusual but noble profession. (Perhaps channeling is really the world’s oldest profession ;-)
Anyway, as many of you know, Vicki Pendley played an important role in the very beginning and became the lead transcriber and disseminator of the transcripts before her sudden departure in December 2001. I had a true dream from the Gates of Horn several weeks ago in which I interacted with her energy deposit, told her "I missed you," and discussed what her afterdeath experience has been like so far. To make a long story short, she is doing just fine and is alive and well and doing her Vic thing. It was a close encounter I’ll never forget.
With this in mind, it seems appropriate to honor her memory on this ninth anniversary and share her reflections on her first meeting with Elias in April 1995.
Jo and I moved to Castaic, CA in January 1998 and had the opportunity to hear Vic tell this story a number of times. She also said that the moment Elias introduced himself, she was also pretty freaked and her first impressions were; 1. where’s my handbag, and 2. where’s the door! LOL! That’s so Vic. But, of course, she got over that initial fight or flight response, settled down, engaged the old ghost, and the rest, as they say is history.
Finally, let’s all give Mary a hearty congratulations and thank you for nine years of making Elias available to a world that can certainly benefit from its wisdom, grace, and concern! Thanks for all you do. Also, thanks to everyone who helps out and participates in the sessions, email lists, and dreamscapes.
