ďLooking for a Different JobĒ

ďDudeĒ

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Steve (Soloron).

Elias arrives at 1:36 PM. (Arrival time is 15 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good afternoon!

STEVE: Hey, Elias! (Elias laughs) Howís it going?

ELIAS: As always! And yourself?

STEVE: I always know youíre gonna say that; itís just formality. (Elias laughs) So I guess youíve kept an eye on me for the last couple of months, checking in and out. Was that you playing with the phone before?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) In interruption?

STEVE: Yeah, I noticed that! I liked that Ė I thought it was pretty classy. (Elias laughs) I guess I wanted to start off the session with a couple more vital statistics for some people, particularly my friend Charlotte. My only impression is some involvement in Sumari.

ELIAS: Belonging to. Alignment, Zuli; essence name, Devon, D-E-V-O-N.

STEVE: Orientation?

ELIAS: Common.

STEVE: And I told my friend that I would get the statistics of his baby daughter, Anastasia.

ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Mysty, M-Y-S-T-Y.

STEVE: Oh, thatís very nice.

ELIAS: Essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Ilda; orientation common.

STEVE: Iíll pass that along to him. Iím sure heíd appreciate that. How about my dadís friends, Lynn and Jack? He wanted me to pass along an impression of Sumari, but not too much more. I donít really know anything much more about these people.

ELIAS: Alignment.

STEVE: On both?

ELIAS: No. First individual, belonging to Tumold, aligning with Sumari. Second individual, belonging to Sumari, alignment Vold.

STEVE: Iíll pass that along to my dad. Thank you.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.

STEVE: I also wanted to ask about my brotherís latest creation, particularly his state of health. I know that objectively heíd very much like to uncreate this problem heís having since itís causing him a serious amount of pain. So I wanted to see if you had any practical advice on what he can do to get rid of this and be healthy again, maybe some insight as to the root of the problem.

ELIAS: And the impression as to what is being created?

STEVE: I talked to him about it, and the impression that I gave him that seemed to help was that it is something where he was restricting his ability to change position, like he was becoming locked into one position and it was causing pain to move to a different one, and this is being manifest physically.

ELIAS: I am acknowledging of you in your impression. You are correct.

Now; let me inquire of you, what is your impression as to an offering of how that may be accomplished?

STEVE: Well, I told him to try and move into some different things, try some different expressions, maybe move into a different area of work, practice making himself a little more flexible in that sense. But he was saying itís kinda hard to do that when it hurts too much to move, you know?

ELIAS: Very well. I may offer the suggestion that he allow himself to engage an exercise in which he incorporates a complete relaxation of the physical body consciousness, and also not concentrate upon the manifestation but move his attention to his energy centers and allow himself to align his energy centers in that action of relaxation, perhaps even incorporate the exercise that I have offered previously in regard to aligning these energy centers. (1) In this, I may also offer the suggestion to be incorporating distraction, for the manifestation is perpetuated in association with his concentration upon it. Therefore, if he is interrupting his concentration, he also may be generating moving his attention more easily and not creating as much painfulness.

STEVE: How would you suggest he can distract himself?

ELIAS: To pay attention in other directions in the now, not to be focusing the attention upon the physical manifestation, but to move his attention in an expression of appreciation of some other manifestation. It matters not what he moves his attention to. Any expression within his now, within the moment, other than the physical manifestation.

STEVE: Is it more probable that he will learn how to uncreate this, or is this something that he seems to be presenting to himself as a chronic thing? Or is this still very much up in the air?

ELIAS: There is a potential to be not continuing to create this, but I may also express that this is a choice and he is presenting this manifestation to himself in relation to recognizing choice. For as he presents this experience and allows himself to engage different actions, he also presents to himself the reality of choice rather than the concept of choice.

STEVE: I see. Iím not sure if I should ask you more about that or not. Maybe Iíll come back to it. So youíre suggesting he should just relax his body consciousness and try to align his energy centers.

ELIAS: Correct, and incorporate distraction. The action of aligning the energy centers is one suggestion of distraction.

STEVE: Maybe weíll come back to that if we have more time.

I donít know how much youíve been keeping an eye on my movement over the last six months, but itís certainly been some ride! What Iím trying to figure out now, what Iím trying to answer and what I was hoping you could help me with, Iím trying to figure out what am I doing, what do I truly want, and what can I do about it now. I know youíre going to ask me my impressions, so Iíll give you that. (Elias laughs)

What am I doing Ė well, in my work right now, Iím presenting myself with a very restrictive work environment, and thatís motivating me toward taking a more independent position concerning future employment and striving for freedom, particularly from the stereotypical rat race. What else I am doing is Iím trying to find work in Boston, since the grad school situation didnít work out the way Iíd originally hoped, and Iím presenting myself with a clearer idea of my preferences and my motivations in what I really want.

My impression on what I want now is I want to cast off the shackles of the rat race, so to speak, and I want a job in Boston as an efficient way right now, within my current beliefs, to get me there sooner rather than later. My ultimate goal is to have my hands in all sorts of different creative avenues, work on my own terms, and not worry about where my money is coming from, but just play for a living! That would be something that I would really like to figure out how to create. Iím trying to figure out what I can do about it now and maybe in the future.

A nudge in the right direction would really kinda help, and also you mentioned that I was creating movement toward a more value-fulfilling future. Is there anything you can tell me about that set of probabilities and maybe what I can do now to actualize that?

ELIAS: And so you are, for you are also offering yourself information concerning your preferences and allowing yourself to engage steps to express your preferences more freely, which you have been restrictive of yourself pastly in association with your preferences. You have engaged this employment, which... What do you view in examination of this employment in what you are presenting to yourself, and your motivation?

STEVE: You mean, what physical manifestations were creating this impression in me?

ELIAS: No, I am speaking of your present employment. What motivated you to engage this particular employment?

STEVE: A belief that if I was not going to go right to grad school, I should get a job, number one. Number two, a belief that a larger corporation would allow me certain opportunities that I would not find in a smaller organization. Number three, a preference to be in a high-tech environment and the promise of being given very interesting work by this job. Basically, I wanted to see how far I could go within this company, and I saw that the company was doing some really interesting things, maybe not that one division of it, but I could work my way toward that. Now a lot of that has changed, where I donít even want any part of the company anymore.

ELIAS: Correct, for this is not what you created.

Now; examine what beliefs were actually in play. One, that if you engage employment within a larger company, you would be afforded more income, more money Ė not that you would be afforded more freedom or more stimulation. For in actuality, you do incorporate an expressed belief that some smaller business might afford you more freedom, but your belief is that they most probably shall not pay as well. Therefore, your motivation for incorporating this particular employment was more in alignment with your belief concerning money and that larger businesses may afford to pay more money.

Now; this also incorporates a belief regarding money itself, that the company is paying you and you are acquiring money from the company rather than generating it and creating it yourself.

STEVE: Thatís a tough one! Thatís a tough one to work through, at least for me right now.

ELIAS: I am aware.

Now; you express that this company would offer you challenge and a creative expression, and although you may not initially participate in that, that you could work yourself into that position. Listen to the beliefs that you are expressing.

STEVE: That I have to wait before I can get what I want, that I have to do what someone else tells me first.

ELIAS: Correct!

STEVE: I had a feeling you were gonna say that!

ELIAS: That you must be directed and compliant with other individuals, that they are creating your reality first and subsequently you may allow yourself to begin to create your reality. Therefore, you are creating merely a portion of your reality, but other individuals are creating another portion of your reality.

STEVE: The movement that Iím creating now is that Iím learning how to recognize that. Iím starting to move toward trusting myself, but now Iím trying to think of what I want. What I want objectively is to move to Boston, find work. I donít care if I have to take a pay cut, and Iíve expressed this before. I still want to do the things that I want to do career-wise, but I want to get a job there, and it can be a temporary job. I want a starting point, a base of operations, so to speak.

ELIAS: A starting point is now!

Now; what may you incorporate to be affecting of your direction in generating what you want in association with what you are projecting futurely as your goal Ė which you are already aware of what I may express to you relation to that, but we shall not address to that presently. We shall discuss where your attention is and the movement that you are speaking of in relation to what you want, and how to begin to generate that now regardless that you are not in that city and you are not generating those actions that you want to be generating in that city. In this present now, the reality of your situation is that you are continuing in your present location and within this present employment.

Now; what may you engage in the now that shall begin to move you in different directions to accomplish what you want?

STEVE: Iím trying to reach out to as many places and as many people that I can think of, in looking for jobs in that area. Iím focusing on smaller businesses because again... I donít know. I was gonna go somewhere, but then I cut myself off! Iím looking for a job in Boston.

ELIAS: Very well. But what are you doing now in each day in association with your routine?

STEVE: Iím still getting up, still going to that job, and Iím waiting.

ELIAS: Correct.

Now; rather than waiting, initiate different action in your present situation.

STEVE: Like what?

ELIAS: Allow yourself to engage more of your creativity. Expand your job, so to speak. Incorporate the initiation and begin to express more of your creativity. Push the limits of your boundaries! For you have created these boundaries, my friend, not your employment.

STEVE: (Laughs) Oh, so now itís MY fault! (Elias laughs) Itís so much more comfortable to put the blame somewhere else.

ELIAS: Ah! I am aware. (Chuckles)

STEVE: So, push the boundaries of my employment. I remember last time you said, ďYou may move outside of the lines.Ē

ELIAS: Correct! You may. I was speaking quite literally to you then, and am also now. This is the point, my friend, to incorporate doing now, not merely projecting but initiate action now in what you are already creating.

STEVE: Like what? Iím sure that I could think of some examples, but Iíve got you on the phone now. Give me some ideas, some things that I can try Ė please.

ELIAS: Offer an explanation of your perception of your job. What do you do?

STEVE: What do I do? (Laughs) Ah. I donít know if youíre familiar with the movie ďOffice Space.Ē I donít know if you get HBO in Regional Area 4. (Elias laughs) You should check it out some time. Thatís my job.

What do I do Ė I write software and I do what people tell me to do...

ELIAS: Stop! Stop. You write software and you do what other individuals tell you to do.

Now; before we move any further in this discussion, what would you prefer to do in this job, merely in what you have expressed thus far? Not overall but...

STEVE: Sure. Itís not the software-writing part of it. I would rather not be presenting myself with... Let me think here.

ELIAS: Do you incorporate creativity and ideas in your process of writing this software?

STEVE: Yes.

ELIAS: Now; if you are interactive with another individual and the other individual is telling you what to do, and you incorporate a different perception and a creative idea in association with what the other individual is expressing to you, do you offer yourself the freedom to express yourself?

STEVE: I think that I have, on occasion.

ELIAS: Do you express to the other individual, ďNo, I choose to be incorporating this action in this mannerĒ?

STEVE: There have definitely been times when Iíve done that.

ELIAS: And?

STEVE: And it feels a bit like I just got done fighting a battle! But what I did gets into the code.

ELIAS: Now; recognize also that this is your perception that you have generated this battle. Have you actually generated a battle?

STEVE: Probably not.

ELIAS: Correct. This is the point. This is what I am expressing to you to prompt you to view Ė directing yourself, incorporating the trust within yourself to act and to express yourself. For as you have stated, it is not the actual action of writing the software that conflicts you, but that you allow yourself to be dictated to and you squelch your creativity in the time frameworks in which you are allowing yourself to be dictated to.

Now; let me express to you, I am not advocating that you be generating conflict. What I am expressing to you is that you can allow yourself to express your preferences and engage the actions that you want and also generate cooperation.

You do not necessarily have to incorporate agreement with other individuals to incorporate cooperation. You may be expressing what you want, not generating judgment in association with other individualsí expressions or their directions. You may also incorporate your ideas and your direction and your opinion. It may differ and they may incorporate quite a difference in their expression, and it matters not that you do not agree. You may continue to cooperate and allow yourself to generate what you want.

This is a beginning point. I am understanding of what you want futurely, but the point is [that] to be generating any expression that you want futurely, it is not a question of waiting. You may wait and wait and wait and not create any of what you want. Action is what moves your probabilities and creates outcomes.

Now; action is not always a product. It may be an action of altering perception. But if your perception is stuck in the future, what are you generating to create that future?

STEVE: Very little, I suppose.

ELIAS: Correct, other than what you term to be daydreaming. Speculation does not create.

STEVE: When I was in college, I seemed to have much less difficulty creating the things that I wanted, even finding a job. It just kind of happened. It fell into place; I found something. It seems like now...

ELIAS: What are you generating? You are creating much more of a rigidness now than you have previously.

STEVE: Why? Why now suddenly so rigid?

ELIAS: Ah!

STEVE: I would have thought that an un-rigid environment previously would... Why would I go from un-rigid and free to more rigid? Is that because of a belief that after I get out of college that all of a sudden I have to be nailed down to a path?

ELIAS: And be responsible. If you continue to be a student, you express the belief that it is acceptable to be more freely expressing and less responsible.

This term of responsibility may be quite tricky, for in actuality it is not a matter of being responsible or not being responsible in association with your societyís definition of that term. It is a question of allowing yourself freedom or restricting yourself.

You have been provided an education, and upon the completion of that education, there is an expressed belief that now you must be productive and you must be productive within certain guidelines. This is a belief. It is not truth; it is a belief.

Now; the point is to recognize what these beliefs are that are influencing you and to recognize what their influence is, how they influence your choices and what you actually do, and how you are responsive to them. Once you are recognizing your beliefs that are expressed and once you are recognizing the influence of these expressed beliefs, you may also recognize that they are beliefs. They continue, but you incorporate choice.

This is the point of not being subject to beliefs. This is the action of neutralizing, not eliminating, for the belief continues. But once you recognize its influence and you recognize what it is, you also may choose whether you shall continue to be subject to the expression of it, or whether you shall choose to be incorporating a different action.

STEVE: This is what Iíve been trying to do over the last couple of months, is just figure out what it is that I believe in. Iíve been making some progress in that, but...

ELIAS: I am aware, and it is quite challenging. This is the reason that I express to you, the manner in which you begin to identify what your expressed beliefs are and how they influence you is to genuinely pay attention to what you are actually DOING.

This expressed belief concerning responsibility is quite affecting with you. You incorporate a belief concerning responsibility, that if you are a responsible individual you must be generating actions within certain guidelines. You must be incorporating employment to be acquiring money. You must be incorporating the action of generating continuing your employment until you have acquired other employment, that if you are presenting yourself to an employer and you are not presently employed you appear irresponsible. Are you beginning to view the influence of this one belief? This is merely one belief. How is it motivating you?

Presently, it is influencing you in the employment that you are currently engaging. It is also influencing you in your method in relation to what you want futurely. What have you expressed to myself as I inquired of you ďwhat are you doing now?Ē Your response was I am applying to many different employments, seeking a job with different companies or with different individuals in this other city, presenting your qualifications Ė influence, influence. You are continuing within the current position of your current employment Ė influence of this belief. Your choices of whether to engage movement to this other city or to continue in the location that you are now for a time framework Ė influence, all in relation to this one expressed belief.

STEVE: I can see that, or at least I can see a glimmer of it.

ELIAS: This is what is significant, my friend.

STEVE: Whew! Thatís a big one!

ELIAS: This is merely one belief, but it expresses many influences in relation to your choices, and your choices are automatic.

STEVE: Am I making progress here?

ELIAS: Yes!

STEVE: I feel like Iím just running around in circles. I feel like Iím stagnating. I mean, am I going anywhere in this, or am I just running around like a chicken without a head?

ELIAS: You are not stagnating, you are not running around as a headless chicken, and you are generating movement.

This is also what I am expressing to you, to be acknowledging of what you are doing. This discussion that we are incorporating now is evidence of your movement, that you are paying attention, you are evaluating and you are attempting to discover your beliefs and how they are influencing of your movement. This is no small feat. It is significant and it is to be acknowledged, for the point in all of this is to allow yourself to create what you want, correct?

STEVE: Yes.

ELIAS: How shall you generate that if you are unaware of how you are creating what you do not want?

STEVE: (Laughs) Youíre absolutely right.

ELIAS: Therefore, it is quite significant that you are offering yourself a tremendous volume of information and you are assimilating. That allows you to tap into your abilities and your choices, for you become more aware of yourself, and in that, you also become aware of the moments in which you are not directing yourself, and allow yourself to notice and choose to be directing of yourself.

STEVE: This is a lot to take in.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Ah, my friend, but shall I say to you in your common vernacular, you are a very smart boy!

STEVE: Well, thank you. I appreciate that!

ELIAS: Therefore, you may be assimilating this information and applying this within your own movement and allow yourself to generate what you want.

STEVE: So if Iím looking for... Okay, for one thing, I heard news that my company is going to be instating this huge layoff, and I find myself thinking well, great, that would be perfect! It would absolve me of my responsibility Ė quote-unquote responsibility Ė to that company, and also give me a more socially acceptable excuse for not being there anymore.

ELIAS: And we shall see if you engage your creativity and allow yourself to create that.

STEVE: (Laughs) Iím probably the only person in this economy thatís actually hoping to get laid off! (Elias laughs)

Letís say that Iím out on my own, or Iím even just staying here in this job, and Iím looking for a job in Boston. Obviously, Iím going to need to get in peopleís faces a bit more rigorously and assert myself a bit more in order to get what I want, which is a job. So what do you think I should do in that particular job search capacity?

ELIAS: I may suggest to you that if you are genuinely allowing yourself to engage your creativity, you may even use your current employment to be helpful to yourself in generating other employment.

STEVE: What, you mean like asking around, or like what? Finding other locations of that company in Boston?

ELIAS: Those are both options. What is the taboo of sharing information with other individuals that may also share information with you in association with different employment?

STEVE: Not with some of my co-workers, but Iíd rather keep it away from my employer himself, because of...

ELIAS: Because of what? That he may incorporate the action of laying you off or firing you?

STEVE: Not necessarily that, but he may make my life difficult there. I know, I know Ė Iím saying that heís gonna make my life difficult and I should be saying that I would choose to make my life more difficult.

ELIAS: Quite correct. It is dependent upon your perception and the energy that you are expressing outwardly. If you are trusting yourself and you are expressing your own confidence in your choices and your direction, other individuals are not affecting of you, even if they are in disagreement. This is what we have discussed. You may create cooperation even in disagreement. Agreement is not a prerequisite for cooperation.

STEVE: I have another question. Is this something that I can also pass along to my brother whoís also trying to find work in Portland, Oregon? Is he grappling with a lot of the same issues that I am?

ELIAS: Yes.

STEVE: So Iím assimilating his experience or do we just happen to be assimilating the same experience?

ELIAS: Quite similar. You incorporate quite similar beliefs, which are expressed beliefs.

STEVE: Are my brother and I twin essences, or are we connected in some way like that?

ELIAS: Not twin essences, but you do incorporate quite a strong association in essence with each other, in actuality quite similar to myself and Patel.

STEVE: How am I connected with the people around me, with the essences around me like, I guess, me and Muset, Bella, Laz, Shyll, Devon? Is there some kind of essence family tree? I mean, is my essence fragmented off of the same essence that has fragmented the other people that I know or some of the other people that I know and have asked about?

ELIAS: No Ė other than your brother Ė but you do incorporate many, many, many experiences with these essences, not merely within this dimension but within other dimensions and within nonphysical areas of consciousness.

STEVE: Like who?

ELIAS: Actually, all of these individuals.

STEVE: What is the nature of my association with Bella?

ELIAS: In what capacity?

STEVE: Have she and I been in a sort of romantic kind of relationship in other focuses? Is that sort of a preference?

ELIAS: You have incorporated several focuses in which you express intimate relationships, some of which are romantic, some of which are familial, some of which are intimate friendships.

STEVE: Interesting. How many focuses do I hold in this dimension?

ELIAS: Eight hundred twenty-one.

STEVE: What about in this time framework?

ELIAS: Five.

STEVE: Have I met any of them?

ELIAS: No.

STEVE: What about the time range that my focuses encompass?

ELIAS: They encompass several centuries BC to several centuries futurely.

STEVE: I got the feeling that I wasnít a final focus just yet.

ELIAS: No.

STEVE: Have I got any famous focuses?

ELIAS: Yes.

STEVE: Could you give me an Easter egg hunt as to how I can find... First of all, how many? I kind of get the feeling that I rather like being in the spotlight; my essence kind of enjoys that position.

ELIAS: Yes, but not as a famous individual necessarily.

STEVE: Well, no, not necessarily. (Elias laughs) But how many Ė I guess just what, like one or two famous focuses?

ELIAS: No.

STEVE: Just one?

ELIAS: You incorporate 12.

STEVE: Anybody that Iíve heard of, like anybody thatís currently alive?

ELIAS: No.

STEVE: I guess I canít exactly coax any names out of you.

ELIAS: (Laughs) I shall leave this to your investigation! And perhaps you may allow yourself to generate an expression of fun in that investigation, rather than all of this seriousness that you have been expressing as of recent time framework.

STEVE: I certainly have been more serious these last couple of years.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Perhaps this shall offer you an opportunity to be regaining some of that fun? Responsibility does not always incorporate seriousness, either Ė another influence.

STEVE: I get the impression that my famous focuses delve into the areas of music and humor.

ELIAS: Yes.

STEVE: Is that a preference of mine?

ELIAS: In some focuses, yes.

STEVE: Interesting. I got an impression of Mark Twain, but Iím not sure if thatís just a preference that I had, where I liked his writing.

ELIAS: I may express to you that you do incorporate a focus in that time framework which is briefly known to that individual, and you incorporate a strong admiration for that individual.

STEVE: Thatís what I thought. Do I incorporate any famous focuses within this century?

ELIAS: Within your present century?

STEVE: Iím sorry, I mean within the 20th century.

ELIAS: One, within very early time framework.

STEVE: Could you give me some kind of an Easter egg hunt as to a famous focus whose name I would be very familiar with and maybe some clues as to a few that I may not be? (Pause)

ELIAS: You may be familiar with one within your present country within a time framework of your early 1800s, a politician. That is one clue. (Elias chuckles) I may offer to you that you also incorporate a musician within your early 1900s. That individual is also what you term to be an American. You incorporate one focus within your 18th century, 1700s, as a painter in Russia. Within late 1800s, and also one more towards the middle of your 1900s, comedians. This should be your beginning of your Easter egg hunt.

STEVE: Okay! (Elias laughs) Happy Easter! I have another question. How long have you been interactive with me?

ELIAS: Quite an extended time framework.

STEVE: Because I had the feeling especially when I was in high school, I went from a situation of being very restricted, more socially than career-wise, being very restricted to suddenly it seemed like my perception just changed and everything became a lot easier for me. I became much more relaxed and people generally enjoyed being around me more than they used to. I felt like it was almost kind of a mini-shift of my own.

ELIAS: Correct.

STEVE: Was that just an alteration of my perception? Was that other essences helping me figure that out? Was that a practice for the Big One? (Elias laughs) Glad you liked that.

ELIAS: I am enjoying of that statement! Ha ha ha ha!

STEVE: The Big One, yeah.

ELIAS: I may express to you, all of those.

STEVE: Fair enough. (Elias chuckles) I guess Iím gonna be experiencing many more of those throughout my focus. I hope oneís coming up soon because that was pretty cool!

ELIAS: (Laughs) This would also be your choice.

STEVE: Yeah! I think Iím working on one right now.

ELIAS: I may express to you an acknowledgment of that, for the direction that you are engaging now, you are generating tremendous potential for that type of expression.

STEVE: I certainly hope so. I could use all the help I can get right now, at least I feel like I do.

ELIAS: And so you have it, my friend.

STEVE: Thank you. Iíve been dealing with psychics, and I know the deal with psychics, itís not absolute and itís distorted and all those wonderful things. But two of them, in fact the only two that Iíve ever really had a conversation with, have said that I was sort of creating probabilities of having this focus be a famous focus or at least a very successful focus. I donít know. I mean, this is a crystal ball question.

ELIAS: You do incorporate the potential. I shall validate and acknowledge that also.

Now; recognize that this is a choice. Therefore, it is not an absolute, but you do express within your energy a strong potential to create that.

STEVE: Interesting. I also get the feeling that itís not going to be in the line of work that Iím in right now.

ELIAS: Correct.

STEVE: I almost feel like it will be more in the line of performance or entertainment.

ELIAS: This is the direction of your energy presently, yes, and therefore that generates that potential.

STEVE: Iím just trying to think about anything else I wanted to address.

The movement that I created in college in the direction of improv, I found myself really, really enjoying that kind of movement because it was a physical reflection of exactly the kinds of things that Iíd read about in the Seth Material and in your transcripts, which I didnít read until after I graduated. But it was a very liberating experience and that kinda sparked my interest in that. I think that was a very big tool to get me going in that direction.

ELIAS: Correct.

STEVE: Iíd love to do that again. I think Iím going to. I can see myself definitely starting that up again.

ELIAS: I am aware. In this, you are more expressive of your preferences and allow yourself much more of an expression of freedom. It may also serve in another manner, in which you allow yourself to recognize and accept some of these beliefs which are quite strongly influencing of you. In that recognition, knowing that beliefs are beliefs, they are not absolute and they are not truths and therefore you may incorporate flexibility, you may choose how to be expressive of yourself rather than merely succumbing to automatic responses.

STEVE: As much as Iíd hate to wrap this up, Iím probably gonna have to do just that. I just wanted to address one more thing.

ELIAS: Very well.

STEVE: Well, first of all, my friend Charlotte has a tremendous appreciation for your Oscar Wilde focus, so I thought Iíd pass that along, maybe request if you could send some Oscar Wilde energy her way, I think sheíd really appreciate that.

ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Very well.

STEVE: Also, about Oscar Wilde, I heard tell that this individual was at least partially responsible for the proliferation of the word ďdude.Ē Is this true?

ELIAS: (Laughs) Yes.

STEVE: Wow! I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would ever have the opportunity to thank you for spreading this word into our culture. It is a word that I use on a daily basis! (Elias laughs loudly) It encompasses so much! So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for giving us this word! Now Iíve said it.

ELIAS: Very well, dude! (Laughs loudly)

STEVE: You talk about babe essences Ė can I be a dude essence?

ELIAS: (Laughing) If you are so choosing!

STEVE: Excellent! And you can be Public Dude Essence Number One!

ELIAS: Very well!

STEVE: Youíve given us more than you could possibly imagine. And now I think Iíve got to wrap this up.

ELIAS: Very well, my friend. I shall be anticipating our next interaction and discussion, and I shall be offering my energy to you to remind you to be playful. You may express my greetings to your brother.

STEVE: I certainly shall.

ELIAS: And I express my affection and my appreciation to you.

STEVE: Thank you.

ELIAS: As always, my friend, in fondness, au revoir.

Elias departs at 2:47 PM.


Endnotes:

(1) Aligning energy centers, from session 31, August 20, 1995:

ELIAS: ...In spinning these individual energy centers, and aligning: if you are visualizing these centers to be spinning at the same revolutionary rate, and incorporating them within a perfect line, you will experience a sensation of balance. You may also, in incorporating your spiritual color of white, send this energy, or light if you prefer to visualize this, down through the core of each of these energy centers within a straight line, and back up through these energy centers, out through your purple or top energy center, and you will experience a very pleasing waterfall effect of energy emerging from these energy centers, out through the top of your head, and cascading down your body. It is quite pleasant and quite invigorating. You may experiment with this exercise, and be quite pleased at the sensation that you experience. You may very safely ďplayĒ with your chakras within your physical body individually, if you are not focusing on affecting a certain ailment or disorder within your body. If you are only focusing on playing and spinning and aligning these energy centers, you may do this quite safely within each of them, or even in combinations of colors, and experience pleasant physical expressions.
