<  Session 106 (Group/Castaic)  >


Participants: Mary (Michael), Vicki (Lawrence), Ron (Olivia), Cathy (Shynla), Gail (William), Julie (Lanyah), and arriving late, Jim (Yarr), and a new participant, Jill (Kacchi).

Elias arrives at 8:03 PM. (“Time” was thirty seconds.)

ELIAS: Good evening. Welcome to new essence this evening! (Smiling)

Timing is everything! (Laughter) Is this not what “they” say? (Grinning) We shall focus this evening’s discussion around your time element, as promised. To begin with, think to yourselves of your Einstein and his equation involving energy mass and light speed, which his incorporation was directly and also indirectly connected with time. In this, insert the element of time. Think to yourselves, in opposition of energy equals(=), think of this concept in reverse; for if you are thinking of your light speed and incorporating your time element in relation to this, if you slow time, it creates mass and matter; this being why you have created a time element for physical focus.

There are many things that seem to be beyond your perception, therefore seem invisible or non-existent for you may not visually perceive them. This is because of their relationship to your time element. Events appear within your focus dependent upon their “closeness,” within time, to you. All physical focus is perceived through the present, the now; therefore all time intersects with the given present moment now, this allowing you your perception of events. If events do not enter your time element, they will not be perceived. There are many events outside, so to speak, of your time element. These, to you, are non-existent; for all that exists is within your time element, within your reality.

The time element, in cooperation with the force of gravity, creates space arrangements. (Jim arrives) Welcome, Yarr.

JIM: Good evening Elias, everyone.

ELIAS: What is meant by this statement of space arrangements? These are the elements that allow matter or mass to materialize. Your perception is the adhesive that holds together the elements which create manifestation. Manifestation and materialization are not bound only to physical form; for your thoughts, emotions, concepts, psychological activity, are all within this realm also, intersecting within your present time element, allowing perception. As I have stated, if an event is not perceived, it will not be within your reality.

Time is an interesting creation. It holds vast flexibility. This may be illustrated with a small experiment that I believe each of you has encountered throughout your focus. Holding an object such as a pencil immobile, this object appears rigid and solid. As you involve motion, a slow vibration to this object, it appears elastic and bendable; still holding its solidity within your perception, but incorporating a difference in your reality. In this same manner, events are perceived. The personality focus perceives events. This is translated to the intellect, which interprets certain events based on its direction of attention as base or “real.” Within your perception, you perceive this one direction to be “real”; this being your primary perception. All other perceptions then become secondary or periphery. They incorporate an elasticity, and seem to be bendable. You interpret this many times as a distorted perception. It is not distorted. It has only not intersected completely into the present time “thickness.”

Within your present now, the time element holds a thickness which allows formation to appear; formation of objects, of thought, of emotion, of physical feeling, of sense data. Outside, in a manner of speaking, of this present now, or your perception of this present now, you may draw other events; but as they are being drawn as periphery, they are not perceived to be quite so “real.” This creates confusion when you begin to encounter simultaneous time. When the intellect begins to attempt to interpret events which are not within its “real” focus, it becomes confused. Therefore, it automatically attaches a secondary perception, which it incorporates a belief of “non-real” to. This you encounter in many areas of your focus.

Presently, within your intent of widening your awareness, this becomes a focal point of importance, for you begin to incorporate other events which lie outside of your baseline or “real” interpretation. Elements of consciousness cross over each other. Events begin to be perceived differently. States of consciousness, such as your dream state or other altered states, begin to filter into your objective awareness, which may be confusing to the intellect which is accustomed to interpreting events in one direction. This you have created purposefully; for holding a base or “real,” as you interpret it, perception allows you less confusion, and an intensity of experience. This is not to suggest that you will experience no intensity within the periphery; although as you incorporate an acceptance of “side perceptions,” the experience seems not to hold such intensity for you have allowed a wider awareness, incorporating more experiences in a greater variety, accepting more of your own subjective expressions. Therefore, objective incorporation seems less intensified; this being also the effort, so to speak, in avoiding trauma within your shift; for this lessening of intensity is a natural by-produce of widening of awareness. There is more trust and acceptance of what you view to be “unusual.”

This also may be distracting! It is difficult to incorporate trauma if you are very distracted! (Grinning) If you are pursuing many avenues of consciousness, you are quite occupied; therefore you allow yourself no “time” to experience fear and trauma.

You incorporate confusion with your past, future, present ideas; viewing the present as now and all others to be almost irrelevant, for they have either not occurred yet or have already occurred, and nothing may be done about these events. As there is no separation of time dimensions, only different areas of time “thickness,” this is a limited perception. Each event that you choose alters the present, the past, the future.

I shall give a small example. You incorporate your new game. You investigate other focuses. You interrupt, so to speak, the natural occurrences or events presently simultaneously occurring, thereby changing them. You do this, at times, without incorporating your new game. You may accomplish this within your dream state. Within the symbolism and the layers of your dream state, in consciousness, you affect other focuses. As they are occurring simultaneously, there is no one event which is “permanent.”

I have been involved in many physical focuses in relation to Michael. Michael’s experience may not appear in my memory, for within my memory, it did not occur, for he may change what you view to have already occurred; therefore eliminating my previous experience and subsequent memory of an event. You, within what you term to be future probabilities, which are no different than past probabilities, may likewise alter an action. In this, you affect and change the perception of those also involved with that action. Another may change their action, eliminating your memory of an event, for it no longer exists.

In this, when I speak to you that it no longer exists, understand that the reason you perceive an event to no longer exist is that it has been removed from the time element. Therefore, it loses its thickness and relation to you within physical focus. This is not to say that an event changed “poofs away” and is non-existent within any probability or actuality anywhere. It is to say that you may rearrange events, pulling or pushing into or out of your time element, which changes events.

Even within subjective expression, an intersection must be accomplished for the expression to be manifest; for all areas connected with physical focus incorporate time elements. Where you may view events to be elastic or bendable is within other states of consciousness. You may access other states of consciousness, and what you perceive within them may be confusing or seem not quite real, or it may seem very real, but rearranged.

You may encounter an event within a room and perceive the room almost identical to what you perceive in your real perception, but small elements may appear different. A lamp may look different. A chair may be out of place. An individual may be displaying unusual behavior. These are not distortions of perception. They are encounters with your periphery; just as if you engage visually straight forward and notice, continuing to view straight forward, your peripheral vision, physically the edges shall appear blurred. This does not make the elements any less real or solid within your reality. You only view them to be slightly out of focus.

Symbolism also is not necessarily a distortion in perception. All things, as your Einstein stated, are relative. You view anything which is not within your primary “real” view and perception to be distorted. This is not necessarily the case! You may pull events from other areas of consciousness within the mass, or individually. In this, it is not an element of your personal directed attention. Therefore, it seems distorted to you, for you view the elasticity and the bendable qualities of events that have not quite formed within the thickness of your present moment. You may engage in an action and choices within one moment. You may rearrange this action and these choices within a limited time period, changing the initial action and choices; for they all intersect within the now. (Pause, looking around at everybody. Those of us who are not asleep are really “spacing out!”)

Was I not warning you “ahead of time” to be prepared for these concepts? I am losing the focus of the individuals as they drift into other areas of consciousness! (Chuckling) Very well. You may “still” with these perceptions presently within this moment, and allow yourselves a time element to assimilate this information. Make no mistake, these concepts affect you daily; for they are involved with every encounter and choice that you make. We shall briefly break, and we shall return for our game; and I shall then leave you for your interaction.

Vic’s note: I looked up “still” in the dictionary. An obsolete definition is “to distill”; to drip or to trickle.

BREAK 8:42 PM.
RESUME 9:13 PM. (“Time” was five seconds)

ELIAS: Continuing: You are correct in your perception, Yarr, of the thickness of the time element, this being that which creates the element for your perception; this being also why you may, in actuality, view air. Your perception is the only element that eliminates visual contact with many elements within your reality.

You may in actuality physically view, at any given moment, a thought holding solidity, dropping as a brick before you upon your ground, if you are so choosing; for as I have stated, thoughts hold the same action and manifestation as an object. They do incorporate mass. You may not perceive them within matter, but the energy which has been inserted into your time element, slowing the motion of the event, creates mass; therefore what you may consider to be a “weightiness.” It may not appear as solid as your table, but your arrangement of space, with regard to emotion or thought or psychological activity, is different; for you create it differently.

Thought concepts, even emotions, may hold what you perceive to be solidity, if you are choosing to view these events in this manner; this being why Michael incorporates clouds, allowing the events to enter into the solidity of the time element, which may then be perceived with physical form; this being why I have stated that your perceptions are not always distortions. Your understanding of what you perceive may be distorted, (laughter) but what you view is not necessarily a distortion. It only appears outside of your “real” reality, for you are allowing manifestation of events not usually perceived in this manner.

All action within consciousness may be categorized as events. Therefore, your table also is an event, for it is an action within consciousness being perceived, within the element of time thickness, with solidity. Think to your pencil. I shall anticipate each of you shall incorporate a pencil between your fingers, vibrating it slowly to view the alteration of perception. In this same manner, as I have stated, other events, such as other focuses to which you tap, hold their own form of solidity. It does not appear to you to be as solid as your chair or your table, for it is outside of your directed attention; therefore “off to the side” of your “realness” of perception. Therefore, you view another focus, within your new game, as not quite as real as this real! You may accomplish widening your perception, and allowing yourself the reality of your periphery; and in this, you shall view unblurred, and you may experience within the same element of reality, or perception of reality, that you hold within your present attention.

It is noteworthy to be contemplating and allowing yourself the information of no time element outside of your focus. It is also beneficial to you, within your awareness and your acceptance of trust of self, to be understanding that all choices, all events, within all time dimensions, are elastic. They are not permanent. They are relative to the moment, and may be changed at any other moment. You may experience an event holding trauma, which you do not experience within this present moment. You may change, in actuality, the occurrence of the event, simply with your perception.

You may experience a broken arm, within what you perceive to be your past. Within your present, you may incorporate the reality of no experience of the broken arm. You may visit your physician, who shall x-ray your bones, and they shall show no sign of breakage; for you have altered presently what you view to be past, for they occur simultaneously, intertwined and intersecting. You may express, “I lived within a red house as a child.” Another individual may express to you, “Oh, no. As a child, you lived within a blue house.” You have already changed your reality; for if you incorporate your new game, you shall revisit your childhood house, and it shall bear red paint.

Your perception is the adhesive which binds the time element, the gravitational force, and the space arrangement. Even your scientists presently have begun to view that elements of what you perceive to be your universe are relative to perception. If they are not perceived, they do not exist within physical focus. You may express to me, “Ah! Are you expressing that new insect life discovered within our rain forests, never viewed before, did not exist until perceived by an individual?” You, as persons, are not the only focuses upon this planet, and you do not hold the only perceptions; but nothing shall exist unperceived within physical focus, for you have created this as your method for manifestation. (Pause) Are you wishing questions?

JIM: So animals within the rain forest, their perception would create this insect?

ELIAS: It is within probabilities. Creatures perceive many elements that you do not perceive.

RON: I think we talked about this a long time ago. I might be able to understand it better now. If I was to be able to widen my perception to incorporate simultaneous time, it seems to me that that would become confusing.

ELIAS: This is why you choose to widen your awareness in increments; therefore allowing yourselves adjustments to unfamiliar perceptions. As I have stated previously, you have manifest within physical form with a quite efficient expression physically. You do not incorporate what you view to be the usage, objectively, of your capabilities within this physical expression. Your physical brain is quite equipped to “handle” all of these perceptions and not incorporate confusion; just as you may physically engage in more than one activity within the same time space, to your perception.

You may engage a partial conversation, incorporate your television, your computer, your telephone, your animals, the recognition of day as opposed to night, your heat or cold elements, all of your sense data, and you may also smash your finger and experience painfulness, all simultaneously; and your brain and perceptions may accommodate all of these elements.

You perceive much more than you realize. Your sense data, that your physical expression exposes itself to and interacts with continually, does not confuse you! You allow it, in actuality, no thought. In a similar manner, as I expressed earlier, the intensity of the events becomes less. Therefore, you may encounter many events simultaneously and allow yourself to direct your attention in whichever area you choose, while simultaneously being aware of all other activity.

You will always incorporate a dominant perception, for this is how you have created physical manifestation; interacting and intersecting within a time element. Therefore, even within a wider awareness, you will continue to hold a more dominant perception in one direction, but you will allow for the secondary perceptions to be viewed and accepted as reality; without struggle, without question.

RON: So within your consciousness, are you interacting and communicating equally with others right now, as you are with us?

ELIAS: Correct. Within your perception presently, our engagement through this phenomenon seems singular. Elias arrives, Elias interacts, Elias departs. In actuality, Elias does not arrive, for Elias is already present! Elias is also present within many other areas of consciousness simultaneously to what you would view to be equal, within perception.

RON: And that’s what we’re shootin’ for! (Laughter)

ELIAS: (Humorously) Eventually, within your time phrasing! Within your shift, you will not incorporate becoming demigods! (Chuckling)

You shall hold an awareness of elements of essence and focuses within physical, to which you discount presently. You shall hold an understanding of belief systems, accepting these, allowing yourselves to be not responding and reacting to these belief systems. You shall experience interaction, with individuals within transition areas of consciousness, without effort; as you would view to be commonplace. You shall view elements of yourselves; other focuses of your essence, other aspects of yourselves; your counterparts, your facets, your fragments ... effortlessly. You shall hold the awareness, allowing yourselves an undistorted interpretation of your experiences; therefore not detracting from your experiences, but enhancing these experiences with a clear understanding of the experiences. In your terms presently, you shall know quite a lot! (Grinning)

You shall be very aware. You shall also enhance and expand your creativity immensely; for presently, as tremendous as your creativity is expressed, it is quite limited. You shall eliminate these limitations, and hold the ability to express your creativity multidimensionally. (Pause)

VICKI: I have a question. Today I experienced what I perceived to be a connection with a focus that I viewed recently in our new game. Was that the same sort of thing? Did I have the experience today ... No. Did I have the experience in the TFE because of the simultaneous experience that I had today, and therefore perceived that focus in the TFE?

ELIAS: You did not experience the event within your new game “because of!” You did not experience the event of this present past moment “because of!” You allowed yourself to notice a re-visitation of a focus, thereby connecting within simultaneous time with this other focus, allowing yourself to incorporate more reality within your present time element; this being where your reality “becomes real” within your present now perception. It was not “real past.” It is “real present.” You view a connection presently of another focus. You are allowing yourself to connect, through probabilities, into other time dimensions which “straddle” your reality simultaneously. Therefore, as we have stated previously, you do not move backward of forward. You move “to the side,” to view a parallel. Within your incorporation of widening your awareness, you allow yourselves to “step sideways” and view the connections within the parallels of different focuses and realities; therefore altering your perception and incorporating more of your periphery, unblurred.

I shall offer essence name, and we shall on to our game for this evening. Kacchi. K-A-C-C-H-I. Welcome! (Long pause, during which Cathy wakes up) Welcome to our session , Shynla! (Much laughter)

ELIAS: (Grinning) Less probable.

CATHY: Figures! Red, movies, Babe.

ELIAS: Less probable.

CATHY: We’re down to the last one! Sumafi, book, Sophie’s World.

CATHY: You already have your four points.

JULIE: Oh, is that how it works?

CATHY: Yeah, you can only have four.

JULIE: Oh, I didn’t know! Okay.

GAIL: She could go on forever! (Laughter)

ELIAS: We encourage the interaction of the game!

JIM: New category; fairy tales.

ELIAS: Acceptable.

JIM: I don’t have any impressions in it right now. Tumold, belief systems, success versus failure.

ELIAS: (Accessing) Acceptable.

JIM: Also in Tumold, composers, Paul McCartney.

ELIAS: Acceptable. I shall interject a note. Within your category of belief systems, it is unnecessary for you to offer opposites. If you are choosing purposefully to be entering opposites, this is acceptable; but you may be informed that this is not necessary.

JIM: Then adding to Tumold, in belief systems, belief of failure.

ELIAS: (Accessing) Acceptable.

JIM: Tumold, movies, The Return Of The Jedi.

VICKI: Fruit, Sumafi, tomatoes.

ELIAS: One point. (Long pause) Are you wishing more questions this evening?

RON: I did have one question, about the term altered states. This state right here, do you consider it an altered state too?

ELIAS: Dependent upon your perception, yes. This, within my perception, would be considered an altered state, although it is incorporated with ease and holds the same attention, if engaged, as what you think of as your directed attention; for within this area of non-physical focus, there holds a directedness within intent, but not singularly within perception or awareness.

“Altered states” is the term used to differentiate between your normally accepted directed attention within your perception, which you interpret as “real,” as opposed to all subjective states of consciousness; which are equally real, but not perceived in this manner. As we continue with engagement with you, we move with the intent to be assisting in your awareness and acceptance of altered states, creating a focus incorporating them as reality; therefore eliminating altered states!

CATHY: I have a question. Is the man Mary viewed today connected to Vicki’s African hut dream?

ELIAS: No, but this would be a connection, within an “altered state” (grinning) of perception, with Lawrence’s “altered state” of perception of another focus.

VICKI: I have one other question. Is Knoros Sarah’s essence name?

ELIAS: No knoooros! (Humorously) Lilyth.

VICKI: Then what’s Knoros??? (Laughter)

ELIAS: You may perceive this to be an “invention” of imagination and creativity, which we shall perceive as reality! (Grinning, pause)

VICKI: Okay. L-I-L-I-T-H?

ELIAS: L-I-L-Y-T-H. (Pause)

JILL: Elias, it’s pleasure to be here this evening. I’m curious to what my essence family might be.

ELIAS: Do you wish not to attempt investigation to be connecting within your own awareness of your alignment with essence families? If you are viewing yourself to be unsuccessful, you may return and I shall be helpful. (Smiling) We are always encouraging of your own investigation; therefore allowing you the opportunity to be connecting with self. (Pause) We shall be discontinuing for this evening, and you may be contemplating our subject matter and incorporating your questions for our next encounter; and within that present moment, I shall be ready! An affectionate good evening to you each, and I bid you a quite fond adieu.

Elias departs at 10:11 PM.
