“The ‘Elias Family’ Session”
“Pooled Energy of Groups”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Fran (Sandel).
Elias arrives at 12:14 PM. (Arrival time is 20 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning! (Chuckles)
FRAN: Good morning, Elias! Can you tell how excited I am this morning? (Laughs with Elias) I’m coming to you today as an emissary.
ELIAS: Very well.
FRAN: A whole group of us has gotten together and we are a collective that we call the Elias Family. We have a list of questions that maybe we can get through and maybe we can’t. I was sort of hoping that you and I might be able to bend some time here. (Elias laughs)
The first thing that we wanted to ask you was to talk about our group and ask you, other than just the sheer fun of it – because we are having a tremendous amount of fun with this – why this particular group of people? One impression is that we have formed for the intent of the allowance of our desires to create vulnerability in an atmosphere of trust and appreciation and acceptance. Is this correct?
FRAN: Would you care to comment on it?
ELIAS: I may express to you, what you have allowed yourselves is simply the choice to be drawing together similar energies and expressing an openness as a group, which expresses outwardly a type of energy which attracts other individuals that are expressing similar directions and interests. In this, you are correct – you are offering yourselves an openness to be expressive of yourselves in an atmosphere or environment in which you generate a feeling of safety, and this allows you to practice trusting yourselves individually more fully.
FRAN: That pretty much came out from the very beginning of the forming of this group. In an earlier session with Myranda, you talked about the power of groups with a common focal point. Are we a group with a common focal point, and if so how are we lending energy to the shift?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, a common focal point is not necessarily one unchanging direction. The power that is expressed with groups of individuals is that whatever direction you choose to be exploring in any time framework, if you are all focusing your energies together and in the same direction in relation to the same subject matter, you generate a powerful energy that creates much more of an ease to accomplish whatever you are exploring in any particular time framework.
In this, as you pool your energies together, if you are choosing a direction of exploring other focuses which you share together, as you pull your energies together each individual generates more of an ease in connecting with their individual imagery and lends puzzle pieces, so to speak, to the entire picture, which pulls together as you share your individual impressions and imagery with each other.
Incorporating this as an example, let me say to you, one individual may be offering themselves imagery in association with the group direction, and the individual shall be noticing what appears to them as the most significant expression of imagery that they offer to themselves. But this is not to say that they are not also offering themselves other information and imagery, but the individual may not necessarily be paying attention to the other imagery.
Now; once you move together and share the impressions and the imageries that you each view in relation to your exercise, so to speak, or your exploration, each individual begins to recall similar imagery that they also offered to themselves but were not necessarily remembering, for this was not the most significant expression of imagery that they were paying attention to.
As an example: you may generate an action of exploring a shared focus. One individual may offer that they incorporated an impression of a large mansion, but in a side periphery, so to speak, they may have noticed the town surroundings and other individuals. But their most significant recall shall be the mansion, and this is what they shall offer: “I incorporate an impression of a large mansion and it is this color and it incorporates this form.” Another individual may express, “I viewed a town with this type of streets and this type of garments that the individuals were wearing,” and the individual that viewed the house may express, “Ah, yes! I am now remembering. I too incorporated an impression of these types of individuals or these types of streets,” which you may not necessarily have allowed yourself the recall of individually. Are you understanding?
FRAN: Yes, absolutely.
ELIAS: Now; this may be applied in any expression. As you pool your energies together, you may choose collectively any direction that you wish to explore or any action that you wish to accomplish. As you generate this collective energy together, each individual contributes to the accomplishment of the direction or the manifestation of some action that you have collectively agreed to be expressing together. Therefore, the focal point is whatever you collectively choose together to either explore or to manifest.
FRAN: So that could change from time to time.
FRAN: It’s not like there’s an overriding common focal point, but that we choose the focal points in that moment?
FRAN: Thank you very much. I know that this is something that we’ve all been experiencing actually in a really accelerated fashion.
ELIAS: Quite! For this is a natural occurrence in association with pooled energy of groups.
FRAN: I have further questions about that a little bit further in this session. But first of all, there’s a couple of other things that we have. I’m trying to do this in some kind of an orderly fashion, without just jumping around!
The next question was that some of us had dreams in the first couple of days of our coming together which could be interpreted as imagery about moving into the unknown. Are we as a group, based on this energy of feeling familiar with each other and the feeling of trust, now opening more to the unfamiliar because we know that the group energy is supporting us in this? I think you probably already answered that.
ELIAS: Yes, you are.
FRAN: Yeah, that’s what we thought. Oh, and here’s a couple of fun ones. We have a color and tone list of the members of our group. Does our group have a group essence signature color or a group focus color? We have impressions. Someone said yellow with rose overlay, someone said yellow-green, we have another translucent opal black, and also a rainbow black. (Pause)
ELIAS: I may express to you, the energy generated by the group does create a vibrational quality that may be translated into a color in association with the group. This would be a bright yellow.
FRAN: Bright yellow? Well, that works for me!
ELIAS: Now; I may express to you, the other colors that have been offered in impressions are not incorrect. They are correct but they are not necessarily associated with the whole of the group energy as the group’s color. What individuals are offering to themselves in their impressions are colors that are generated – or vibrational qualities that translate into colors – in association with different mergences of the essences within the group. But not all of the essences are merging together in the same time framework.
FRAN: Yeah, I think we’re starting to see that, the different groupings that...
ELIAS: Correct. In different moments different essences may be merging together and generating a particular vibrational quality that may be translated into a color.
FRAN: As more people are drawn to the group, or as different essences are drawn to this group, will that bright yellow change, or will we only attract essences that are within that vibration? (Pause)
ELIAS: This is a choice. In this, you are drawing individuals that, as I have stated, share a common direction of interest, so to speak, and in that, you have thus far generated through your similarities in your interests this particular color as a group color. But I may not express to you a permanence of that color, for you may or you may not draw individuals that share your interest but express a different type of energy and that may alter the expression of the group color. But thus far you have not drawn that type of energy into your group.
FRAN: I guess where I’m trying to kind of go with this is what is the group intent? What is that thing that is so similar about all of us and about our energy that has drawn us together? Is that back at the first question, the desire for vulnerability? ELIAS: Partially, and also partially a common or similar excitement and curiosity for exploration of unfamiliar directions and expressions in association with this shift.
FRAN: Well, that makes perfect sense. That’s great! Do we also generate a group tone, and is the word “darling” such a group tone for us? (Pause)
FRAN: It is? We’re so smart! (Elias laughs) We’ve been calling ourselves the Darlings and someone suggested that I also call you Elias Darling.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! If you are so choosing!
FRAN: Then going back to your previous analogy about discovering historic and focal connections, we’ve been doing a lot of this and we seem to have found connections with the Romanovs and Faberge, the Bavarian and Austrian courts of the late 19th century, Lake Titicaca and the ancient cultures of the Andes, the Anasazi culture, 19th century French writers and artists, and we are now starting to discover a lot of future focuses that we have that are around the Alterversity. Is there a common theme here with all of these groups that point to our intent? I think you’ve already answered that, and that is just the curiosity...
FRAN: ...and desire for exploration of the unfamiliar. Are there any reasons for why we came together that we are not yet aware of?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, it is not necessarily what you express in your ideas, so to speak, of coming together in agreement which may be associated with a previous direction or desire, so to speak. You have in the moment drawn yourselves together and have generated choices to be exploring yourselves together in an environment of comfort, and as I have stated, safety, so to speak. In this, my response to you is that you shall continuously be discovering new or different reasons, so to speak, that you draw yourselves together, for you are generating new and different reasons each moment.
What I am saying to you is that the familiar thought processes translate to you that there is a theme or a direction or a desire that exists first and then you each draw yourselves to that theme, but in actuality this is not what occurs. There is no theme that exists first and you are drawing to it. You draw yourselves together in a moment and continue to draw yourselves together, and as you move within your linear time, in different moments you generate more recognition of your directions, your themes, your desires, and your similarities and differences.
FRAN: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
FRAN: You’ve already confirmed that all of us have Dreamwalker aspects...
FRAN: ...and focuses in the 11:11 dimension, and we are assuming that we are all also present at the Alterversity. Is this correct?
FRAN: And then the next question was – which you’ve already answered – again, is there a common theme that ties these three groupings together? Well, I’m understanding what you’re saying, that maybe, maybe not, it depends upon the moment...
FRAN: ...and our own desire for explorations.
FRAN: We’ve been having a lot of fun with trying to identify our Dreamwalker tones and wondered if you have any comments about that. (Pause)
ELIAS: And what is the purpose of this exercise?
FRAN: I really don’t know what the purpose is, other than just it’s a lot of fun. (Elias laughs with Fran) Of course led by Myranda, who comes up with these things just instantly!
ELIAS: Are you...
FRAN: Is it just, you know, to have more understanding of the vastness of ourselves?
ELIAS: I am understanding. Are you exploring the tone in relation to a name or are you exploring the tone in relation to a note?
FRAN: Oh! We’re just talking about in terms of a name. Also there’s a lot of curiosity about if each of us has Dreamwalker aspects, then what... Oh, I don’t even know how to form this question! Let’s start with the name first. (Elias chuckles) To me it’s a very complex concept, Dreamwalkers.
ELIAS: It is quite abstract. In this, my suggestion to you is that you incorporate together as a group, pooling your energies, and creating a group meditation or visualization or even a group dream, and in that action generate your focal point as the exploration of the tone of your Dreamwalker aspects.
In this action, let me express to you, you may be offering yourselves tones or names, so to speak, and be aware that the name that you offer to yourselves may not necessarily be of yourself, of your individual Dreamwalker aspect. It may be of another group member. Therefore, your exploration is an exercise in genuinely listening to your impressions and paying attention to your communications to yourselves, that you may offer yourselves not merely the names but which name is associated with which individual. Ah! This may be quite a fun game!
FRAN: Well, actually, you must be aware of what we’re doing, because there have been three or four names that have popped up that no one knows who they belong to! (Elias laughs) So you’re suggesting a group meditation or a group dream or some way of pooling our energy to come up with those?
FRAN: Great! That does sound like a lot of fun! (Elias laughs) Obviously that led into the next question, because you’re looking over my shoulder, aren’t you? You can read these questions here before I even say them. (Elias chuckles)
Are we all meeting in our dreams and is this part of our intent in forming the group? Many of us have been having dreams about attending classes or being on campus. Are we right now in the dream state attending classes at the Alterversity?
FRAN: We thought as such.
ELIAS: And you may also incorporate projections in association with your group.
FRAN: Some of us are. I’m not one of those some of us, but some of them are. (Laughs with Elias) Also Myranda has felt a strong support of our group at the Alterversity when she decided to start the group. Since then many have had dreams about it and we’ve had the impression that individuals there are lending energy to our group. And we’re assuming that that is correct.
FRAN: In which way are we connected to this group, and what are we gaining from the connection? I’m not sure I quite understand that question, but I’ll put it out there. (Pause)
ELIAS: What you are gaining is more of an assimilation of the concept of the lack of separation. In this, the question of how you are connected is almost moot, for what is being accomplished is an offering of energy in supportiveness and helpfulness to be lessening your associations with the belief of separation.
FRAN: Great. You know, I’m down to just two questions and we’ve only been talking for about thirty minutes here. So I’m going to throw these out, hoping that you may have some additional comments. Is there any way that our group could make an energy pool that family members can tap into? You know, I’m kind of thinking that you’ve already told us this, that the energy pool already exists.
ELIAS: You are correct.
FRAN: Since we have so much time, would you like to comment further on that?
ELIAS: You may each tap into this energy pool, so to speak, in any moment, and you may be engaging that action in many different manners, for each of you offers a contribution to this energy pool, so to speak.
Now; it is not an entity separate from yourselves. It is, in a manner of speaking, an energy that you are each all continuously generating whether you are incorporating thought in relation to it or not, for energy does not require thought. In this, in a manner of speaking you may visualize this energy pool, so to speak, in a manner of visualizing each of the individuals of your group and visualizing an energy field that surrounds each individual.
Now; from that energy field surrounding each individual, energy is projected outward towards each other and it connects. Therefore, you may visualize this energy that all moves together from each individual’s energy field and meets, so to speak, in a central point.
Now; that energy expression has already been established, so to speak, and it is continuously maintained and it is unbroken even if an individual chooses to not be participating within your group any longer, for it is uninterrupted. If an individual chooses to disengage their participation with your group, they merely remove their energy from the connected point, but the connected point remains uninterrupted.
Now; as it is uninterrupted, any of you within any moment incorporates a clear avenue to be accessing that energy which is offered by the whole. Any of you in any moment incorporates through that clear avenue the ability to tap into any one or few of the other members of the group and the energy that each individual is offering to the group.
Now; the significance of this is, in a manner of speaking, what you have created is a type of energy highway between you.
FRAN: I love that analogy!
ELIAS: And this energy highway moves and incorporates different destination points, so to speak, which are each individual. Therefore, you may incorporate your energy and direct your energy upon this energy highway and you may move freely to any of these individuals or you may move to the center point, so to speak, which is connected to all of the individuals.
Now; what you may generate in this journey upon your energy highway is a discovery not merely of your own abilities, but information that is associated with each of the other individuals within your group – incorporating information concerning other dimensions, other focuses in this dimension, what the individual may be engaging now in this focus. You may be offering yourselves much more of an ease in your empathic sense and allowing yourselves to connect to each other empathically.
These are all significant avenues that you are offering to yourselves. For as you share experiences with each other and you generate an openness to each other to allow each other to empathically merge with each other, every action that you express is purposeful and is precise. You draw yourselves to each other in specific manners in any moment purposefully to offer yourselves information concerning your self.
Therefore, as an example, you may incorporate your energy highway and you may in one particular moment, within one particular day, be moving in the direction of connecting with Steffano.
Now; Steffano may be, in that particular moment, engaging some physical challenge – not associated with physical body consciousness, but in physical action. You may be empathically connecting with that, and as you objectively contact and interact with Steffano, you may be sharing experiences. As he shares his experience in that day with you, you offer yourself information in relation to your movements in that time framework, for you have intentionally specifically drawn yourself to a member of the group purposefully to offer yourself information concerning some challenge or some validation that you are expressing to yourself in that moment. Each interaction is purposeful. It is not an accident.
Also, in this, you allow yourselves a much vaster expansion of your own explorations, for you are not merely limiting yourselves to this physical reality and dimension, but tapping into the communication of imagination with each other, not merely your own, and therefore offering yourselves the opportunity to be exploring other physical dimensions and nonphysical areas of consciousness.
FRAN: We have started a list of impressions of physical and nonphysical dimensions that have come up in our dreams or whatever, some of us noticing that we have similar experiences. One of the things that came up recently was imagery of some vertical stripes. It came up in Myranda experiencing another dimension in which there were vertical stripes with colors in between. About the same time, I was having a dream in which I thought I was seeing a tile that had black vertical stripes on it and something in between, and that this was a symbol that was inserted between focuses. What was that all about? Is that exactly what you’re talking about?
ELIAS: Partially, yes. I may express to you, if you are so choosing you may insert this as a tile into your city.
FRAN: That has come up as a suggestion.
ELIAS: And I may also express to you, what you are experiencing is not necessarily an expression between dimensions, for in actuality there is no between dimensions. But you are experiencing the thinning of this veil of separation, which generates a translation of imagery within your awarenesses in association with all dimensions occupying the same space arrangement.
FRAN: Again, the lack of separation?
FRAN: So, the offering of this tile, this is a tile that represents the thinning of the veils?
FRAN: Is it Sumafi?
FRAN: It is? Okay. I’ll have to pull that back up again and see if I can draw it (laughing).
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Very well!
FRAN: I’ve had a hard time objectifying it, you know, and then I was just astounded when I read of other people’s experiences in which it came out again as vertical stripes.
ELIAS: Now; let me express to you information concerning this particular tile, which you have now inserted. It changes, for it is associated with thinning the veils of separation. Therefore, as its expression of a lack of separation, its stripes, so to speak, change.
FRAN: And this is what Myranda was tapping into?
FRAN: The changing of the stripes, and she was talking about them changing colors and the background changing as well.
ELIAS: Correct. And also at times it becomes translucent, for what shall you view if there is no separation?
FRAN: Wow, I love that!
ELIAS: Quite a tricky little tile! Ha ha ha!
FRAN: Well, no wonder I can’t draw it! I was wanting to do it in black and white, Elias.
ELIAS: Ha ha! You may offer a translated rendition of it, but also express the explanation that it changes.
FRAN: Maybe if I could get a little more sophisticated on the computer and graphics, I could actually make a tile that does that.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Perhaps so!
FRAN: Okay, I have one last question for you and that is, do you have any specific recommendations to all of us as to what is the most efficient use of our group energy?
ELIAS: Any expression! (Laughs) Any expression that you choose, any direction that you choose, is efficient and beneficial, for you have already established your theme, so to speak, in your comfort with each other and your allowance of yourselves in this group to be freely expressing yourselves and therefore generating more trust within yourselves. Therefore, it matters not what direction you choose. They shall all be beneficial and efficient. I may express to you merely the suggestion that you continue in the direction that you have incorporated thus far and generate fun.
FRAN: Well, we’re doing that. We’re having great fun with this.
ELIAS: I am aware!
FRAN: We have said that that is the main parameter, and anyone who joins the group has to be playful. That’s the only rule!
Well, this has been most enlightening. We still have just a couple minutes, and I’ll tell you what, I’ll give you your choice. You can either give us just a little bit more information or we can sign off here. That would be your choice.
ELIAS: Ah! MY choice! I express to you, continue in your directions. You are offering yourselves a wonderful expression of pleasure in relation to each other, and you have offered yourselves much information. I encourage you to continue your own explorations.
FRAN: And you’ll join us, will you not?
ELIAS: Of course! I may be quite insulted if you are not inviting me!
FRAN: Well, you’re part of the family, Elias Darling!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Very well, Sandel Darling! (Laughs)
FRAN: Well, thank you very much. We’ll be talking to you again soon.
ELIAS: I shall be anticipating.
FRAN: We enjoy your continued interaction.
ELIAS: Very well. And I certainly incorporate playfulness! I express to you all, as a group of individuals, my encouragement, my acknowledgment and my tremendous affection. In fondness to you, Sandel DARLING...
FRAN: I love it!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Au revoir.
FRAN: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 1:07 PM.
