Archive Project Updates
The DVD Archive 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 1,800 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 464.
The 1995 transcripts are one third done, as we have finished through session 21. That means only 42 more to go!

Gems 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 gems are taken from Paul H’s private session:
PAUL: “... I have in this conceptualization [about evolution] that I’m trying to translate accurately, I keep getting a sense that as things emerge into time, it’s all together, it’s all right there, and yet little pieces – there is an order of play. (Elias nods) You’ve given the sequence of the Dream Walkers with their intents regarding the shift, things like that, so you’re on the record with showing change-in-time, even from this subjective area.”
ELIAS: “Correct. Do not discount the element of time within your physical dimension, for, let me express to you, without the interplay of time, there is no physical matter. Therefore, to generate a physical reality, a physical dimension, you must be incorporating some type of configuration of time – not necessarily linear, and not necessarily in the manner in that you configure time in this physical dimension – but, also, remember that this particular physical dimension is one of the most complex and diverse physical realities that exists within consciousness. Therefore, you also incorporate a complex expression of time …”
ELIAS: “…to generate all of the physical manifestations that you do within this physical reality.”
PAUL: “Right. And so part of this time framework, as it manifests, as it emerges from – let’s just call it the singularity of the blink out before the blink in process – as it emerges, there’s an order of play of emergence.”
PAUL: “And so these belief systems that we have in evolution, even though there’s some that are very distorted, and pathologically so, with a very negative effect in cultural terms, (Elias nods) there’s still a grain, a gem, of truth to this flow in time and the emergence of life in this dimension; it has to be that way.”
PAUL: “It doesn’t just poof in, in other words.”
ELIAS: “Correct. In this, view your arts, which are in a manner of speaking a creative mirror of the design of your physical dimension. Now; in composition of musical expressions, what do you express first?”
PAUL: “There’s a whole different, many ways of doing that, but for me personally I would get an idea, a seed.”
ELIAS: “And your idea incorporates what initially?”
PAUL: “A communication?”
ELIAS: “A melody.”
PAUL: “Okay. All right.”
ELIAS: “You begin with a melody, which is your subject. And you build around that subject, that central point, with your harmonies and your disharmonies and you create the background, so to speak, subsequent to the initial melody. Now; within your art of painting, what do you create first?”
PAUL: “I’m not a painter, but the background, the base layer, some base layer that you start to build upon.”
ELIAS: “Correct. You insert your central subject matter. Now; these two actions may be seemingly different, but in actuality their sequence may be somewhat different, but they are actually very similar. The subject in both compositions is the initial point, but what is expressed in the execution in one is the subject first, and in one is the background first.
“Now; in association with the design of your physical reality, both are in play simultaneously in association with the Dream Walkers. The Dream Walkers are the subject, and exist, but are not physically manifest. The background is being created in association with the design of the reality. Both are in play, so to speak, simultaneously, but what you view in what you associate as your evolution, or your sequence of events is the development of the background first, and the insertion of the main subject subsequent, which is your species.”
PAUL: “Right. Good analogy.”
ELIAS: “But your species was in play while the background was being developed, in your terms, but not necessarily entirely physically solidly manifest as you view yourselves now.”
PAUL: “So in terms of this matrix, we would say that this inner ego was existing previously, and there, (Elias nods) fully waiting and working along with everything consciously….”
ELIAS: “Not waiting. Actively participating in designing the background, and designing the physical manifestations of your world, and experimenting with different types of physical manifestations. And in that experimentation, exploring the possibilities of physical manifestations and manipulating energy in a manner in association with time to be creating different types of physical expressions in what you term to be living and non-living. And in that experimentation, allowing for a tremendous freedom in creativity, and in keeping with your associations which have, in your terms, carried through your history, generating a fascination with large manifestations, but also recognizing that large manifestations are not always as efficient.”
PAUL: “Are you referring to the dinosaurs?”
ELIAS: “In part.”
PAUL: “In part. Yeah, huge, huge creatures, a lot of food, a lot of processing, the whole ecosystem.”
ELIAS: “Which generated quite an excitement in association with the Dream Walkers in manipulation of energy of consciousness to generate enormous physical manifestations within your physical dimension.”
PAUL: “So the Dream Walker layer, which I’ll just say is inner ego, or ‘below’ or wider, perhaps even, is intimately primary in creating all of this.”
PAUL: “So essence, what you call essence, this personality tone within consciousness, all of consciousness, is instrumental, absolutely primary and causal in that sense of its primacy.”
PAUL: “It causes, and that’s just an amazing thing to remember.”
ELIAS: “It creates.”
PAUL: “Wow. (Elias chuckles) Thank you for that, by the way, that’s helpful.” [session 1246, January 16, 2003]
Digests: find out more about Dream Walkers.
PAUL: “... One more general question in this area about the shift. If we can loosely say that this acorn-sapling-tree change-in-time structure in focuses of essence – human beings, whales, dolphins – goes through what we could just generally call a (Elias nods) preconventional stage, a conventional stage, and a postconventional stage. It’s very general….”
ELIAS: “I am understanding.”
PAUL: “Okay, it works for you. And it seems as populations tend to get to the postconventional stages, there’s more potential for a harmony and choices of least conflict or whatever. That make sense? That’s consonant…?”
PAUL: “So, is part of this shift – and this is coming from this inner ego, Dream Walker, causal source dimension – part of this shift, the nature of this shift, is to somehow get – because the population’s growing – to – accelerate isn’t the right word – but to get people from this conventional to postconventional stage at a younger age? Or to do the opposite and prolong it and to somehow…. What I’m sensing in this shift – and you just brought it up with the fact that there’s no accident with the whales and dolphins in this emergent quality – there’s something emergent in this shift, that’s what I’m trying to get at.”
PAUL: “And does this little three-part thing – preconventional, conventional, postconventional…? How does this shift affect the population moving through that developmental stage? Does it accelerate it to get them… yeah, to the postconventional?”
PAUL: “So postconventional development will happen sooner in large percentages of the population?”
PAUL: “So we could say in this now, in this moment point, if we take a snapshot of all the focuses and where they’re at in that spectrum and just make a map of that, shall we say – which I won’t even pretend to try – it would tend to be very conventional with smaller percentages of the population at postconventional.”
PAUL: “But with this shift something is changing.”
ELIAS: “It is accelerating.”
PAUL: “To accelerate the developmental stages to postconventional, and post-post-, (Elias nods throughout) and there’s others up the stream that await us.”
PAUL: “In all their magnificence.”
PAUL: “Excellent.” (Laughs)
ELIAS: “And in this, do not confuse yourself in the idea that you are generating a utopia in association with this shift in consciousness. What you are creating is a wider awareness objectively and an intimate knowledge of yourselves that allows you the freedom to intentionally manipulate your energy in association with your choices, in association with your freedom, to generate what you want.
“Now; understand; within any moment, although you all express that your ideal is to be generating a reality in which you express no conflict, but I may express to you, all of you, within any given point have experienced within your focuses moments in which you choose intentionally to create conflict and you want to create conflict. Therefore, you are moving into more of an expression of less conflict, but this is not the point.
“The point is that if you are creating conflict, you shall be aware that you are intentionally choosing that and not expressing blame to another individual or circumstances or situations, but recognizing that you yourselves have created it and that you chose it and that you want it.”
PAUL: “That’s a really good point to make, and I call it naïve utopianism, (Elias nods throughout) and I suffered through it and occasionally lapse back into it myself, so I’m aware that it’s very important to point this out in the conversation we’re having, because ‘tomorrow is always better,’ and ‘tomorrow the shift,’ and tomorrow never comes!”
PAUL: “Tomorrow is always tomorrow! All we have is this moment now.”
ELIAS: “For tomorrow is always today.”
PAUL: (Laughs) “And yesterday too!” [session 1246, January 16, 2003]

Monthly Musings - The Ten Beliefs Systems: Emotions
Last month we explored the belief system of truth. This month we continue with our exploration of the ten core belief systems that Elias introduced in March 1999 with a focus on emotions.
Elias says repeatedly that sexuality and emotion are two of the primary elements we explore in this dimension. Emotions are an important avenue of communication between essence and focus, between subjective and objective awareness. As such, they always send us both a signal and a message from source. Culturally, we're taught to repress and deny our emotions, especially men, sometimes with disastrous effects. So getting in touch with our feelings and emotions is very important in maintaining healthy relationships with self and others.
Now, the belief system of emotions is different from our actual emotions. When I am feeling in love, joy, fear, anxiety, curiosity, rage, hate, grace, etc. I am experiencing mySelf as essence. However, my objective awareness forms all kinds of beliefs about love, joy, fear, anxiety, curiosity, rage, hate, grace, etc. Combined with the belief system of duplicity, we judge our emotions to be good, bad, or somewhere in-between.
So our emotions are not our beliefs, but our beliefs about emotions certainly color our perception. And it is through our perception that we objectively create our reality.
Emotions by themselves they are expressions of energy, communication from essence. As such, they are essentially are neutral in that they come and go, but there is always a message relating to what we are creating in the moment.
So we continue to receive a signal, an emotional communication, as long as we don't get the message that the emotion contains. For those who are getting used to the NIRAA practice, paying attention to emotional communications is very, very important. We will repeat a pattern, and get the same emotional signal over and over, until we finally are able to notice, identify, recognize, address to, and ultimately accept the message.
Finally, though we are focusing on emotions as communications, it's important to recognize that there are many other avenues of communication, signals from essence, to help us process what we're creating in the moment.
So emotions don't exist in a vacuum, but work in concert with inner and outer senses, impulses, impressions, body awareness, and so on.
Now, science relates our emotions to brain function, particularly the limbic system, neocortex, and neuropeptides. So that's the physical aspect of our perception that complements our feelings and emotions. However, do animals, trees, insects, bacteria, rocks, atoms, or quantum fields have their own kinds of emotions? I think it's relative, in that they are all aspects of consciousness and all consciousness feels or experiences. But there is something unique and exceedingly complex about human emotions. For example, we hold belief systems, and animals, trees, insects, etc. don't. Our experience, feelings, and perception are part of what make us focuses of essence. And all these other forms are not. They are of consciousness, certainly, but not of essence.
All of which leads us to a simple practice for this month. Simply NIRAA our emotions. Notice which ones predominate your experiences for a week. Seven whole days. First, simply notice every time we feel something. Just notice. Don’t identify or label or analyze. Just notice. Pay attention to what you feel!
Then, during a second week notice and identify emotions connected to daily actions, particularly relationships. Concentrate on what emotions arise in terms of relationships with self, with essence, with family members, pets, plants, TV, movies, your car, your lawn, etc. Notice what you are feeling, what the messages are. Are there repeated signals? Is there one or two that draw your constant attention? Write those down for further NIRAA practice, as repeated signals always represent a message we not yet heard.
As usual, don’t go crazy, simply do the practice for 5-10 minutes throughout each day, and let it go at that. The basic idea, as always, is to notice self in relation to others, and be consistent with the practice. With a little persistence, you will begin to notice how deeply the belief system of emotions penetrates to the core of our being.

Order The Shift: A Time of Change
Publication date 25 October 2004
For more information, please contact email@example.com
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.
