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 Shahma’s private session:

SHAHMA: “I think that in the last couple of years I have relaxed a little more .... I’m accepting myself somewhat more, but there are times, like when I was speaking of this great feeling of energy that sometimes occurs within me, I have this feeling sometimes that it feels like a dam is gonna burst. I guess I’m afraid of being overwhelming with people, and I guess probably if I would just relax and allow myself to express myself that none of those things would happen.”

ELIAS: “Correct.”

SHAHMA: “I don’t quite know what I’m trying to say here...”

ELIAS: “I am understanding. Let me express to you, my friend, the initial movements in offering yourself permission to express yourself and what you want in freedom are the most challenging, for these movements initially are generated with the objective knowing that you are allowing yourself and also continuing to generate an expression of fear. Therefore the fear continues, and in many scenarios the fear intensifies as you DO allow yourself the actual expressions initially of freedom. But you also generate a validation of yourself in each experience, and this, in each experience, quiets that expression of fear.

“Once allowing yourself the initial expressions of freedom, you quite quickly quell the fear, for the validation of yourself and your accomplishment and your allowance of yourself to genuinely view that this is quite real and that you do actually hold the ability to generate your choices and your freedom and your expressions of what you want, that expression of validation becomes much louder and much more intense in your objective awareness than that of the fear.

“The natural movement and desire of consciousness, of essences, is to be freely expressing and offering satisfaction to themselves and offering an expression of preference and pleasure. Therefore, although within your physical dimension you do generate an objective expression of fear concerning some scenarios in relation to your beliefs, your natural expression of energy is contrary to fear, and therefore allowing yourself to generate freedom, even in an expression of fear, the validation is a natural expression of essence and this becomes quite overriding to the fear.”

SHAHMA: “Yes, I think I know what you’re saying. There have been times when I’ve allowed myself to be VERY expressive and free with my energy and I do receive a lot of validation objectively, and people have described me as vivacious, which was kind of surprising to me! (Laughing) But I have felt very exhilarated in the process.”

ELIAS: “Quite! And you generate an objective experience and feeling which is actually accompanied by an emotional communication, which you may or may not actually pay attention to in those moments. But you do generate somewhat of an objective recognition of that communication, for you generate the signal of the feeling, not merely of exhilaration but of a sensing that you hold the ability to accomplish ANY expression and that you are UNBOUNDED in that moment. It may be experienced temporarily, but you do offer yourself an objective recognition of it, and in actuality, this is quite genuine. You do hold the ability to be creating in a boundless manner. You do incorporate the ability to create ANY expression, ANY manifestation that you want, quite literally.

“This is one of the wondrous aspects of this particular physical dimension. Although you view yourselves to be quite limited, I continue to express to you all the tremendous diversity that is incorporated in this particular physical dimension, for you have created a blueprint in this particular physical dimension that allows for tremendous expansion and allows for tremendous freedom. This is the reason that this physical dimension is incorporating this movement of this shift in consciousness and inserting that Source Event into your physical objective reality.

“I have expressed from the onset of this forum, this shift in consciousness is unique to your physical dimension. It is not being incorporated in other physical dimensions. For, this particular physical dimension allows for an openness that may accommodate this type of expanded expression and alteration of your physical reality but continue to incorporate the design of this physical dimension, which is a wondrous expression or invention of consciousness which you participate within.” [session 1042, March 25, 2002]

Monthly Musings - Keeping Up with the Digests

Last month we reflected on the Ninth Anniversary of the Elias Forum. This month we’re going to explore how to deal with the constant updates to the Digests. We provide a monthly list of Digests that get updated, because some of you have written us wondering how you can keep an up-to-date set. The simple answer is that there’s no easy solution right now, so we’re open to suggestions from our readers.

What kinds of changes are there? Well, there are three basic ones:

  1. an “error correct” that Bobbi Houle sends out regularly whenever folks report typos. Usually, these are single words, and not worth reprinting the entire Digest for.
  2. a gem (quote) is added to the intro, usually a paragraph or two.
  3. a new block of material is added. Sometimes this is directly at the end and easy to spot. However, sometimes they are near the end, and not so easy to spot. This occurs particularly when new group sessions come out.

The challenge is, if we log every change, that adds yet another layer to an already monumental task. So we’d love to hear suggestions from any of you database experts on how we might be able to track these changes and pass them along to those readers that wish to have the latest set of Digests.

The good news is that there are over 4,500 pages of essential Elias in the Digests, including every published group session. Whether or not you have all the current Digests printed, they are still freely available on the website along with the transcripts. The wonderful legacy of the Elias forum continues to grow and provide useful information to anyone who needs it during these times of accelerated change.

New & Updated! Order The Cellophane Prophecy

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 "Never trust anyone named 'Stinky'" and "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.
