> Mary Will No Longer Travel to Group Sessions

Mary Ennis has been holding group sessions since 1995. This phenomenon started out in a group context, and it was a couple of years before the first private session was held or any money was charged. As more and more people came to the sessions, Mary's friends in Castaic tried to help her find a way to commit to the Elias sessions full time and had to gradually convince her to accept any money. She has received a lot of help and support from those who transcribe and publish the sessions, as well as those who attend. Still, Mary never really enjoyed the travel part of her business, well, except maybe her visits to France! But for one reason or another she has decided to reduce her travel. There will still be group sessions, but they will occur in Brattleboro, Vermont beginning this Fall. For an update, see: A Note From Mary, April 17, 2005

> Group E-fest in Chicago, Illinois in July 2005.

See below for details on Mary's last group session In the USA.

> DVD Archive Project Update

This 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 1,700 sessions on videotape! Since DVDs take up less space, we purchased a DVD recorder last March, and began to transfer the ’95 sessions from Ron and Cathy Churchman’s video archive. We’ve finished through session 450.

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 Neal’s private session:

NEAL: “I would like to discuss this movement that I’m trying to accomplish, in my way of expressing it, allowing more and seeing through the eyes of source and seeing with compassion, not only the person but also their eternalness. I’m doing a retreat for ten days, coming up in about a week, and that’s going to be the focus of the retreat. I’d like to hear your understanding of that.”

ELIAS: “And how shall you be directing in this retreat?”

NEAL: “I’m not sure of the question, but my answer would be it’s a retreat in solitude. I’ll do meditation and I’ll do clearing or accepting of the fear that is associated with that kind of surrender to source.”

ELIAS: “Hmm. Therefore you shall be engaging other individuals, correct?”

NEAL: “I’ll be doing this alone. I’ll be alone and in silence for ten days. I’ll be engaging individuals not so much physically as I will emotionally and spiritually.”

ELIAS: “Very well. And your objective is?”

NEAL: “A beginning of that consciousness that allows me to see through the eyes of compassion. It allows me to know what to offer them in that moment, even if it’s simple gentle kindness.”

ELIAS: “Very well. In this solitude, focusing your attention upon yourself and your understanding, you may open a window, so to speak, to allow yourself to experience into other individuals and offer yourself greater understanding, not merely of them but of yourself, also. For in this process, you may be noticing how you translate the experiences of other individuals.”

“Your objective is to be, as you have stated, viewing into the source of yourself and of other individuals. In this, what you offer to yourself is information in how you as an individual translate the experience, or that which you term to be the source, of other individuals, and this offers you more information in relation to your source. Are you understanding?

NEAL: “Yes, I am. (Pause) Could you offer me some insight into the personal beliefs I have that limit that flow of energy within me, within my perception?”

ELIAS: “Remember, beliefs and perception are different. Beliefs influence your perception, but perception is what generates your reality. In this, it is a matter of how you direct your attention in association with beliefs that influence or alter your perception.

“Now; in relation to this subject matter of the activity that you are planning on engaging, it is not necessarily a situation of beliefs that may be limiting or hindering your action that you shall be attempting to engage. It is actually recognizing the action of your translation as you proceed within your action and therefore allowing yourself to recognize what beliefs influence your translations, which thusly influence your perception.

“In this, as you pay attention to yourself and to how you are translating information, you shall allow yourself to recognize not merely what beliefs are being expressed but also that you incorporate the freedom to choose to be expressing them or not, which is significant.

“It is not a situation in which you or any individual shall be NOT expressing beliefs, for all that you engage within your physical reality filters through influences of beliefs. But what you objectively are forgetful of is that you incorporate ALL of the beliefs within all of the belief systems, and therefore you also incorporate tremendous diversity in choice. Merely acknowledging that you do express any particular belief offers you the freedom to redirect your attention and choose ANY belief that may serve you, so to speak, in an expression of clarity. Allowing yourself the awareness is most significant.

“Therefore in this situation, with you individually, I would not express to you that there are certain beliefs that may be limiting or hindering of your objective, for this is not the situation that you are moving in. You are not expressing beliefs in a manner in which they are being a hindrance presently. Therefore in this situation, realize that your objective is not necessarily to be addressing to beliefs, but rather to be paying attention to your translations, which therefore affect your perception. In allowing yourself an openness to yourself and genuinely paying attention to YOU in this process – as you simultaneously are paying attention to what you allow yourself to tap into in relation to other individuals – you shall offer yourself a tremendous volume of information, and this may be your avenue into a genuine expression of appreciation of self.”

NEAL: “Mmm. I like that. (Elias laughs) I like that! I’ve shared a lot with a lot of people that circle of love that we discussed in one of our prior conversations, of appreciation and knowing and love and acceptance. That has helped not only me but a lot of people.”

ELIAS: “I am understanding. In your terms, my friend, you have generated an interesting path, so to speak!” (Chuckles)

NEAL: “It’s been fun... Well, most of the time.”

ELIAS: “Which offers you a tremendous expression of freedom, does it not?”

NEAL: “I have one of the most incredibly free lives that I can imagine.”

ELIAS: (Chuckles) “And this is the point!” [session 1198, December 04, 2002]

Monthly Musings - The Ten Belief Systems: Duplicity

Last month we began to explore the ten primary belief systems outlined by Elias in 1999 in the order he gave them. We started with relationships, and this month we're going to continue with a really BIG one, duplicity. But first, here's a summary of the ten belief systems:

Digests of Essential Elias relationships (interpersonal/intrapersonal = other/self)
Digests of Essential Elias duplicity (morality/ethics)
Digests of Essential Elias sexuality (sexuality/gender/orientation/preference)
Digests of Essential Elias truth (relative truths/Absolute Truth)
Digests of Essential Elias emotion (emotional/feeling)
Digests of Essential Elias perception (perceptual/attention)
Digests of Essential Elias the senses (inner/physical sensing)
Digests of Essential Elias religious/spirituality (exoteric/esoteric)
Digests of Essential Elias scientific/elements of physical reality (scientific/rational)
Digests of Essential Elias physical creation of the universe, including accidents and coincidences (creation mythos)

The belief system of duplicity is where our moral and ethical beliefs reside, though Elias doesn't use those exact words because they are charged with conventional religious belief systems. They include good/bad, right/wrong, better/worse, pretty/ugly, gain/loss, etc. Elias says that duplicity is unique in that it is nested within the other nine, and as such, is very, very affecting of our perception. The basic idea is not to eliminate morality or ethics, but to become aware of how it colors so many birds (beliefs) in all our bird cages (belief systems).

ELIAS: “Do not misunderstand that I advocate lack of concern or caring for all other individuals, but you may not hold true concern for other individuals until you hold true worth and concern for yourself; for if you do not value self, you may not value anything else. In this, you hold a portion of value for self. That is why you hold duplicity. You hold both ideas of self; that of trustful and that of not trustful. That element of self that you do place some amount of trust within allows you the ability to project outwardly to other individuals a caring and concern and trustfulness; but you shall find that within you, given the opportunity, this shall be dashed quite quickly in the face of the distrustfulness, for this you hold more strongly. All elements of your societies reinforce this.” [session 170, May 02, 1997]

ELIAS: “[Duplicity] is the belief system that is the most greatly creating of judgments, and positive and good is also a judgment. It is opposing bad or negative. It is no less a judgment than what you perceive to be unacceptable. It also is a very insidious judgment, and this is the camouflage of duplicity, for it is quite changeable. It is quite acclimating to all of your camouflages, to all of your belief systems, to all of your thoughts and feelings, and may mold itself in many different manners that may be quite deceiving.” [session 328, October 03, 1998]

ELIAS: “Guilt, I shall express to you – as I have expressed many times previously – is one of the two manifestations of energy within this physical dimension that you express that may be the most closely associated with a waste of energy. In actuality, there is no waste of energy. Therefore, I may not express to you definitively that the expression of guilt is absolutely a waste of energy, for no energy expression is wasted, so to speak.

“But I shall express to you, were there any expression of a waste of energy, the expression of guilt and worry would be those. These two expressions of energy serve merely to perpetuate the belief system of duplicity. They reinforce all that you identify as negative.

“They reinforce the expression of a discounting of self, a lack of acceptance of self, and they create an expression of devaluation of worth, which – in a manner of speaking, figuratively speaking – is an expression which is contrary to consciousness and essence.

“I am not expressing that it is not a creation that may serve or that has served as beneficial to you within this physical dimension within different moments of your history, but I shall express to you, within consciousness, were there to be an expression of an unacceptable manifestation of energy, these expressions would be [the ones].” [session 510, December 04, 1999]

ELIAS: “And what I am expressing to you now is that there is no better. This is entirely a design and an illusion which is set forth through the influence of an aspect of the belief system of duplicity.

“You are already best. You are already creating perfectly. Your beliefs are influencing your perception of yourself that you are not creating perfectly, and therefore you create judgments, and this sets in motion a very large wheel which moves quite rapidly, and it continues to turn and turn and turn, for as you create the judgment, you also reinforce the duplicity, which expresses once again to you that you are not adequate enough yet, that you could be creating better, that you will be experiencing no conflict at all IF you are creating better.

“ALL of these expressions are influences of duplicity. ALL of these expressions camouflage the now and camouflage your perception, dictating to it that you are presently not adequate enough, not good enough, and not perfect.

“And therefore, in the influence of that belief, as it dictates to your perception, you create an actual reality in which you view yourself to not be accomplishing perfectly yet, and you reinforce this and reinforce this and reinforce this with judgment and the continual perpetuation of viewing that you need be creating better.

“I shall express to you what shall be better – what shall be better would be for you to be eliminating the word ‘better’ from your language! HA HA HA!” [session 619, May 25, 2000]

ELIAS: “I am expressing to you not figuratively but quite literally and in intensity, these belief systems that you hold within this reality physically are very strong!

“They are immensely powerful, and this particular belief system of duplicity is not merely powerful, and not merely is it expressed within itself, but as I have offered many times in [this] information, it – in a manner of speaking – attaches itself to every other belief system and intertwines itself in EVERY expression of your physical reality.

“You create an assessment upon every movement, every moment, every choice that you engage within your physical reality in relation to duplicity. You either assess that your action is good or it is bad. It is acceptable or it is unacceptable. It is better or it is worse.

“This is the tremendous camouflage of duplicity, and it is intensely strong.” [session 619, May 25, 2000]

ELIAS: “Remember, duplicity also is a belief system. Therefore, as you recognize that you are expressing judgment, do not compound the judgment with judgment! (Laughter) But recognize in the moment that it is expressed, and accept this. (Pause)

“For, my friends, the more you practice offering yourself acceptance of what you express, even in judgment, the less you create judgment, for the more familiar you become with acknowledging yourself and validating yourself and accepting yourself, and the less frequently you express the judgments.” [session 938, October 27, 2001]

KEITH: “Elias, can you make the distinction between judgment and a belief system? I’m kind of picking up that judgments are bad, whereas you can’t get away from belief systems but judgments... You’re saying if we’re aware of a belief system then we wouldn’t be judging?”

ELIAS: “Not necessarily! You may be quite aware of beliefs that you express, beliefs that other individuals express. You may incorporate the ability objectively to be identifying many different beliefs and what belief systems they are associated with, and understand conceptually what is being expressed and that they are beliefs; but beliefs are quite real.

“In this, what I am expressing to you is not an eradication of judgment entirely, for that would be an elimination of the belief system of duplicity. The belief system of duplicity intertwines itself with every other belief, and it is an assessment of good and bad, of right and wrong.

“Now; what you are moving into in acceptance is not that you shall discontinue to incorporate your individual opinions concerning right and wrong or good and bad, but that they are relative to you and the recognition that they are not absolutes, and this is the key. For what you generate in the judgment that I am speaking of is an expression of absolutes in accordance with these rights and wrongs and goods and bads, that it is not merely applicable to you but that it is an absolute that is expected of what you term to be everyone and everything, that your reality moves in a particular manner and that it must move in a particular manner, that the manifestations in it, the movements in it are absolute and unchangeable, and that it is expressed throughout your universe in a particular manner that is what it is which is outside of you – that there is some reality outside of your reality, an official reality that is not your individual reality but a bigger reality, that is the guiding reality and that is the absolute reality. That is what you are striving to attain, this absolute real reality in which the truth resides, and there is no other reality.

“There is the reality that each of you generates, and that is the official reality. That IS the real reality, and no other power is setting its rules or guiding it greater than you. There is no outside manipulation.

“Therefore in the appreciation and the value of every individual – for every individual is an expression of essence, of consciousness; every individual is equally as valuable as every other individual; none are more valuable and none are less valuable – and in that, if every individual is unique and valuable and an expression of consciousness, and if every expression of consciousness in that value is worth in equal measure, how may you determine what is absolutely right and what is absolutely wrong, or what is absolutely good and what is absolutely bad?

“Not one individual within this forum presently this day incorporates all of their focuses as what you now in this present moment would consider to be moral, good, ethical individuals. Regardless of how right you view yourselves to be now, you all incorporate some scoundrel within your focuses. And why? For you choose to be engaging this physical reality to explore and to experience, and if your purpose is to experience, why shall you not choose a tremendous variety of experiences?

“Let me express to each of you – for I remember and am quite pleased with the remembrance! – I may express to each of you that those scoundrels, those knaves, those individuals that you view to be dark and evil are quite colorful, and they perceive themselves to be quite right also and would view you to be quite wrong; for this is what motivates all of you, your rightness in whatever you do. And the scurvy knaves believe themselves to be quite right also and within their rights to be generating whatever choices and actions that they incorporate. They do not view themselves to be scoundrels; they do not view themselves to be wrong. They view all other individuals to be wrong, as many of you do now. ‘It is not I that am wrong – it is the rest of the world!’

“The rest of the world is not wrong, either. You merely incorporate differences in your perceptions, and this motivates you in different actions. The significance is to recognize that your rightness in whatever you generate is associated with your truths, and your truths are not wrong but they are YOUR truths, and they are not absolute to your world.” [session 1496, January 17, 2004]

A very charged and often misunderstood word used by Elias is “judgment.” It sometimes has the “bad” connotation of a secular “judge and jury” or more religious “judgment day.” However, Elias uses this word more like “discern,” which means “to recognize or identify as separate and distinct.” So the action of judging or discerning in this context is completely neutral. However, when judgment or discernment is colored by the belief system of duplicity, that's when the good, bad, and ugly start to creep into our perception, and thus our creations.

This is why Elias harps on accepting self and the NIRAA method, so that with practice we don't eliminate our moral and ethical beliefs, but situate them in a more relativistic and pluralistic context where there is no single, black and white definition of good and bad, right and wrong. This leads to its own challenges because it forces us to be accepting of many more beliefs held by others worldwide.

There is also a danger in taking Elias' words too literally to mean that there is no right or wrong and it's OK to steal, murder, rape, and ignore the needs and wishes of others. That's not the point of “it matters not!"

CURTIS: “I’ve been incorporating the ‘it matters not’ energy and trying to see things from a larger perspective, and it’s made me kind of wishy-washy and ambiguous about things, and not really...”

ELIAS: (Strongly) “I am understanding, and let me clarify. This is a misunderstanding and a distortion of what I have expressed throughout the entire time framework of this forum. I express to you, in the acceptance of a belief your expression shall be that it matters not, for you have removed the judgment. I have NOT expressed to you that nothing matters, which is quite different. There is purpose. There is experience. There is exploration. There is interaction and cooperation. The expression that it matters not is merely the identification of the removal of judgment, not that there is no matter.” [session 1368, June 07, 2003]

ELIAS: “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, 2004]

Thus, the point is that we've been taught by conventional religious beliefs that there are absolute, black and white definitions of right and wrong, good and evil, etc. And while we each have our opinions and preferences, when practicing NIRAA we begin to see that there is overlap in many cases. However, in others “the right thing to do” is not so clear. Recent examples include the War on Terror, War in Iraq, Terri Shiavo, gay and lesbian marriage, abortion, and on and on.

So the simple practice for this month is to NIRAA our own duplicity with self for a week. Seven whole days. Simply notice how often we discount and devalue our selves first. Then, during a second week NIRAA how we discount and devalue others. Include plants, insects, pets, children, family members, as well as “them,” you know, all those “others” over there somewhere. As usual, don't go crazy, simply notice for 5-10 minutes throughout each day, and let it go at that. The basic ideas, as always, are to notice ourselves in relation to others, and be consistent with the practice. After all, we create what we concentrate upon!

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.

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 “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.
