Since opening our cyberdoors in February 2002, we have served over 118,000 webpages to more than 8,600 users in over 40 countries. Many thanks to all of you who continue to provide us with tremendous support, constructive suggestions, and email feedback!
Unfortunately, Mary Ennis had to cancel her radio interview and several weeks of sessions due to a serious illness this past month. Please join us in sending healing energy her way. Drop her a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or send your get well wishes to:
Also, special thanks goes out to Paul Tews who came up with a great suggestion to make the Transcript archive easier to navigate by adding a“forward” and “back” button to the top of each Transcript page. Not only that, but he wrote a computer program that magically transformed all 800+ transcripts in the blink of an eye.
Last but not least, if you enjoy this newsletter and website, please take a minute to let us know what you think. Your feedback helps us to make them easier to use.

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 comes from an exchange during a private phone session with Axel Schoenberger. It deals with the belief system of perception (one of the ten foundational belief systems):
AXEL: “We have still a little more than ten minutes even left, and I was wishing to offer you, if you will, to talk again freely upon any subject of your choice.”
ELIAS: “Very well. We shall continue our discussion concerning perception, for I am recognizing that this subject is quite confusing to many individuals.
“You confuse your beliefs with your perception, and you view that your perception is created merely by the expressions of your beliefs, and this is incorrect. Your beliefs are an aspect that may be expressed as an influence upon your perception. Your beliefs also are influencing your assessment of yourself and how you view yourself; but there are many factors, so to speak, which contribute information to this mechanism that we identify as the perception.
“It is not merely your beliefs that are creating your perception. Your beliefs do not create your perception. They INFLUENCE your perception. Your perception is a projecting mechanism of your awareness, and this is the mechanism which incorporates an input of information that you hold in association with your beliefs, in association with your direction of attention, your assessment of different expressions of yourself, different aspects of yourself that you may be engaging in any particular moment. There are influences of your families and your association with those families of consciousness. There are inputs of information in relation to the avenues of communication that you offer to yourself through physical expressions which are created within your body consciousness, through emotional communications, through sense communication, through impressional communications.
“All of these factors, so to speak, interplay in an input of information which is received by the perception, and is moved and molded by this mechanism into an actual creation which is projected outwardly as an actual physical reality. This mechanism that you do not see, that you cannot touch, that is not physical in design, designs all of your physical.”
AXEL: “This is very interesting, Elias. I believe many people on our discussion list will appreciate this input very much, because as you are probably aware, perception is THE topic, sort of.”
ELIAS: “Many individuals are allowing themselves to be paying attention to their perception in this time framework, for many of you are choosing to be creating an intimate relationship with yourselves, and in creating an intimacy with yourselves, you also incorporate movement into a familiarity with your own perception and a curiosity now in the workings of your perception, and experimentation with how you may be intentionally objectively manipulating your own perception, which offers you a tremendous validation as to your actual ability to be creating every aspect of your reality, and you reinforce to yourselves that you are in actuality creating your reality in every moment, even the expressions of other individuals.”
“Initially this may be confusing conceptually to you, but I assure you that as you continue experimenting with this mechanism of perception, and you continue to be allowing yourself the discovery of your own abilities, you shall offer yourself, in a manner of speaking, objectively a tremendous empowerment in the expression of your own validations to yourselves, that you in actuality hold the ability to create ANY expression of your desire.”
AXEL: “Brilliant! This was excellent, what you just said. It is now for the first time I seem to be able to grasp this term of ‘perception’ and this term that you often use ‘avenues of communication.’ It seems much, much clearer now to me. I will post this to the list tomorrow, and I believe a lot of people will appreciate this very much.” [session 834, May 10, 2001]

Power Users Tip of the Month - Exploring the Exercises
Last month we took a look at how to get the most out of the Digests. This month we’re going to learn how to get the most out of the Exercises. There are presently 41 Exercises! They are available from any page on the website by clicking on the word "Exercises" in the left-hand navigation column.
Elias offers these exercises to enhance our physical senses, in conjunction with, what he calls, inner senses. The inner senses are like a set of “sixth” senses or deep intuition. They are the tools that allow anyone to perceive reality beyond the “limits” of their five physical senses.
Elias has not prescribed any order or best way to approach these exercises. Each is given in response to peoples’ needs in the moment as they interact with him.
For me, the exercises fall into three related groups:
Each grouping follows the order by date in which each exercise is given. So there is no right or wrong way to do them! Some are short, some are more involved. You might try whatever exercise that feels like it may be beneficial to you.
As Elias often says, the results you obtain will be based solely upon your intent, desire, and motivation. Understanding those may be a good place to begin. Learning about your inner senses may also provide a framework for further exploration. This exercise listing is NOT prescriptive but serves more as a point of departure and further advice to refine our own personal practices.
“These exercises are offered to you not as time consumers. They are offered to you to allow you the opportunity to be clear within your manifestation within physical focus, and be appreciating of your creative power.” [session 149, January 19, 1997]
“I have expressed to you previously that you understand and incorporate and assimilate information by experience. I may talk and talk and talk to you, and it shall mean little if you are not incorporating the experience. This shall create the reality to you, as you allow yourselves to experience all of these elements of which we speak. Therefore, this being why these exercises hold importance. They allow you the experience, and therefore allow you to realize the reality.” [session 162, April 06, 1997]
“I may sit before you all for the next twenty years and expound upon the subjects of how you create your reality and offer you exercises and offer you information, and you shall NOT be accomplishing objectively until YOU are noticing and YOU are offering yourself objectively your own information; for although you believe yourselves to pay close attention to these words, you pay closer attention to your own selves. You pay closer attention to your own experiences and the information that you offer yourself, for this within yourselves is MORE REAL than my offering to you.” [session 259, January 17, 1998]
Next month, we’ll look at getting the most from the Library.
