New Feature: Gem of the Month
The Gem of the Month is an excerpt from a recent transcript that captures a snapshot of essential Elias.
This month's Gem comes from a private session by Jim Pickerell deals with holding attention upon Self in the context of the belief system of perception:
ELIAS: “I may not express to you strongly or genuinely enough, my friend, the powerfulness of your attention in relation to self and how this is affecting of perception and how that genuinely alters your reality.
“The creature [i.e. a sick pet] is an expression within your reality. If you are holding your attention upon self and allowing a balance and a free flow of energy, concentrating your attention upon self, you cease to be creating judgments outwardly. This creates an automatic tremendous flow of allowance in energy. It creates a lack of expectation, and in that lack of expectation, there is a tremendous opening, a tremendous expression of freedom, that energy flow, in whatever choice is being engaged.
“I have expressed many, many, many times to you all the tremendous significance of holding your attention upon self, and how this genuinely does alter your reality. It does not merely alter your individual reality.
“Let me express to you, my friend, you yourself and every other individual that has engaged conversation with myself has at times created thought processes that incorporate questioning and wondering as to how you shall in actuality create the expression objectively of altering all of your reality and creating the genuine expression of this shift in consciousness. This, in its simplicity, is the movement of it, and the manner in which it shall be accomplished is in the recognition of the significance and the POWER of holding your attention upon self.
“This one action, this simple movement, creates an opening of floodgates of energy which incorporates such a significance of power that it in actuality, in genuineness, does alter your reality in actual physical terms: physical matter alters, physical expressions alter. Not merely your individual singular perception, but as you alter your perception you also open a channel of energy which is affecting of consciousness.
“I hold an awareness that you do not individually recognize the vastness of consciousness or your individual expressions of affectingness of consciousness, but I may express to you in truth – and as you are aware I do not incorporate this particular term often – but in this discussion and this subject matter I may express to you in TRUTH the alteration of your perception creates a movement which is affecting of all of consciousness.
“Therefore, what you may term to be these small expressions of objective imagery, of alteration of one creature [i.e. sick pet] and their physical manifestation, or an alteration of a translation of transference of a picture from one medium to another [i.e. create a painting], you may allow yourself to view as great in its significance in the alteration of perception; but in relation to objective imagery, it may be viewed as similar to one grain of sand upon your planet.
(Firmly) “The objective imagery is the abstract. It is not what holds significance, for it is continuously changeable. It matters not. Within one moment, you may be incorporating objective imagery in the expression of your llama. Within another moment, you may be incorporating objective imagery in relation to an expression of your dog or a pony or a bird or another individual – it matters not. What holds significance is the expression of your perception, which holds consistency in ALL of these objective expressions of imagery.”
JIM: “And there’s inner perception, too, of how you see yourself.”
ELIAS: “It is not an expression, my friend, of inner and outer perception. It is all one. It is all inter-related, for there is an interplay of all of your associations, your beliefs, your knowings in the creation of your perception. There are merely different expressions of perception and different directions of the creation of your perception. But it is all one movement; it is all one mechanism.”
JIM: “All in harmony and balance.”
ELIAS: “Correct.” [session 809, March 30, 2001]

Power Users Tip of the Month - Getting the Most Out of the Print Function
The last three months explored using various SEARCH functions to locate exactly what we want. Refer to the March, April, and May Newsletters in the Library under “N” for more info.
This month we are going to take a look at how to get the most out of the PRINT function. Many people print out Transcripts, Digests, and Exercises and use up a lot of paper and ink cartridges that can get expensive. So to help save on trees and ink, here are some suggestions on how to get the most out of your printing efforts. These are just suggestions – feel free to customize to suit your own tastes!
Tip #1: print double-sided, you'll get twice as much! (This saves on binders and paper.)
Tip #2: if you have a color printer you may wish to print in grayscale to save ink. Press CTRL+P, then click on PRINTER PROPERTIES or SETTINGS, then click on grayscale. Be sure to click on OK to save the change.
Tip #3: use the following page settings to get the most per page when printing. Press ALT+F, click on PAGE SETUP, then type in:
Print instructions are also available online at:
