“Exercise: Tipping Tables”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and René (Lanntyn).
Elias arrives at (actual time not available). (Arrival time is 22 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon!
RENÉ: Good afternoon!
RENÉ: Would you say my essence name?
ELIAS: (Chuckles) Do you not already not know?
RENÉ: Yes, but I want to hear it.
ELIAS: You pronounce to myself!
ELIAS: Emphasis on second syllable, Lanntyn (lawn TIN).
RENÉ: My first question: when I direct my attention to my thinking process, the past or the future, I often experience beliefs that don’t influence my choices in the moment, but I do create emotional responses to them. Therefore, I try to accept them. But this is often overwhelming. I fear that these beliefs that don’t influence my perceived choices in the moment are influencing in a hidden way and are using, in a manner of speaking, my beliefs about linear time and about cause and effect.
For example, I believe that I have to create a specific scenario first before I can experience certain things, and I believe that those beliefs that create an emotional response and that don’t influence my choices in the moment are creating those scenarios.
Would you recommend to accept only those beliefs that are influencing my choices in the moment and to ignore the others? Or are they influencing? What about the emotions that are connected with them, also just ignoring?
ELIAS: I suggest you do not ignore.
RENÉ: But they are not influencing my choices in the moment.
ELIAS: No. Let me express to you, beliefs are very intertwined. You are recognizing that not merely one belief is influencing of different scenarios.
First of all, I am understanding that your association is in the familiar, that you must be engaging your thought process prior to the engagement of a choice or the manifestation of what you want. Recognize, in this – not merely intellectually but realistically – thought does not create your reality. I am understanding that you are aware of this information and that you intellectually know what is being expressed, but it remains a concept and you continue to generate familiar actions.
Now; this is somewhat an involved question. Therefore, it may be incorporating a more lengthy response. In this, it is important that you pay attention to all three aspects, all three factors – the emotional communication, what you are actually doing, and the thought process, but recognizing that they all are occurring simultaneously. It is merely a matter of your attention which is moving, which generates the appearance that one occurs first and the others follow. But they do not. In this, you generate an action and simultaneously you offer yourself an emotional communication concerning that action.
Now; understand, you do not always offer yourself an emotional communication. You offer yourself an emotional communication in conjunction with your choices in the time frameworks or the situations in which you are either validating yourself – in which you generate an emotional signal of happiness or joy or excitement, exhilaration. These emotional signals are associated with validations that you are presenting to yourself that you are expressing in that moment in conjunction with your preferences and offering yourself no conflict and generating experiences that are in association with what you want.
Now; in other time frameworks, you may be generating emotional signals which you view differently, you view in more of a negative association or uncomfortable association. Those may be generated in anxiety, disappointment, sadness, frustration, irritation, annoyance – many different emotional signals.
Every emotional signal is associated with an emotional communication, which is quite significant, for every emotional communication in the moment is precisely identifying what you are actually doing in the moment, what is influencing, what belief is influencing your choices and whether that influence is in conjunction with what you want or whether it is not in conjunction with what you want, and also if it is associated with your preferences or not. Which at times may be confusing, for you may be generating an emotional communication that may be identifying that you are generating some experiences that are in conjunction with your preferences but not necessarily what you want. Therefore, it may at times be confusing.
But in this, if you are genuinely paying attention to all three of these expressions of yourself, you shall begin to notice if one is not in harmony with the other two. If one is not in harmony with the other two, or if all three are not in harmony with each other, you may assure yourself that you are generating some action that is not in association with your preferences and is not in association with what you want. This is your indication to be evaluating what the message is that you are offering to yourself through your emotional communication or through your impressions, and recognizing what the influence of the belief associated with it is.
Now; you have already identified that many times – in actuality, all of the time – there is more than one belief in play in any particular scenario. But generally speaking, there is one belief that is dominant or the central belief, and the other beliefs are intertwining in a manner as, figuratively speaking, branches. The central belief is the trunk of the tree, and the other beliefs that are intertwining with it are the branches of the tree that extend outwardly and are influencing and do express an affectingness, but they are all in that moment associated with the one central belief. Identifying your emotional signal offers you a clue.
Now; in my discussion of yesterday, I offered information of this subject matter to the individuals that participated. In this, I shall express to you in similar manner. Identifying the signal in itself at times maybe quite challenging, for most individuals express a tendency, so to speak, to generalize. They create a type of umbrella concerning feelings, which are the signals. Therefore, they are not specifically identifying what the signal is, and that is important, for that is your beginning clue, your beginning indication.
RENÉ: Do I often identify the emotional communication?
ELIAS: At times, yes; at times, no.
Now; an example of not specifically identifying a signal – you may begin in identifying an emotional signal, the feeling, and within short time framework, if that signal increases or becomes louder, it becomes confused, for you begin to generate an identification of additional signals which may not necessarily be occurring. But as the signal increases, you begin to associate that there is more than one signal occurring. Therefore, you confuse yourself, for now you are identifying several signals simultaneously, and you overwhelm yourself, for you are attempting to evaluate and analyze what all of these signals are.
Return to the first, identify that and allow yourself to move beyond the signal and allow yourself to identify what the message is associated with the signal – what is this being generated from?
Now; the automatic response is to move your attention outside of yourself to situations, circumstances and interactions, and automatically express to yourself [that] this signal is being generated in response to this event that has occurred in this present time framework. No.
You have purposefully drawn to yourself and placed yourself in an interaction or situation or circumstance in which specific events shall occur and you are manipulating energy to generate those events purposefully to allow yourself to reflect to yourself some element within yourself, some expression that you are generating within yourself. Therefore, in recognizing that, you allow yourself momentarily to stop.
Now; not to move into an expression of analyzation, for that complicates the scenario and it is unnecessary to be complicating. Many times in the complicating, you also miss the point. Therefore, you stop, you listen, you listen to your signal, you identify your signal, you move your attention and you express the inquiry to yourself “what generated that signal,” for this is the movement into the identification of the message.
RENÉ: But what if I think of a future event and then I create an emotional response to this event in the future?
ELIAS: Very well. Let me express to you, the present always follows the future. Therefore, what is the future? If the present follows the future, if the present is after the future, what is the future?
RENÉ: So then all emotional communications are never associated, connected with the future?
ELIAS: Correct. They are associated with now.
RENÉ: They are not associated with my thinking process about the future?
ELIAS: Your thinking process is a translating mechanism. Therefore, it may not necessarily be accurate to express to you that your thought process is not associated with the future, for...
RENÉ: But when I direct my attention to the future, then the emotional response is not associated with this directing of my attention to the future?
ELIAS: Correct, but your thought process may be, for it is translating where your attention is. It is translating the information that you are offering it, and the information that you are offering it is associated with where your attention is. If your attention is projected into the future, this is what your translating mechanism is expressing to you. Are you understanding?
ELIAS: Now; the emotional communication concerns now, not the future.
RENÉ: The beliefs that I identify that are not influencing my choices, you say that I should direct my attention to the now and to myself...
RENÉ: ...and what I’m doing. But when I project my attention to the future and I identify a belief that is not influencing my choices of what I’m doing in the now, shall I then redirect my attention to the now or accept the belief that is not influencing my choice?
ELIAS: This is also a matter of viewing or perceiving in black and white, that either you shall project your attention to the future or you shall hold your attention in the now to the exclusion of the future. A natural expression is the flexibility of attention, which is to say that your attention naturally moves to the past, the future and the present, but not to the exclusion of the present.
RENÉ: But when I don’t get familiar with paying more attention to the now, then I don’t recognize my choices. When I always concern myself with the beliefs that are not concerning what I’m doing in the now, then I don’t get familiar with what I’m doing in the now.
ELIAS: Offer an example.
RENÉ: When I’m watching TV, then I can identify beliefs. But these beliefs don’t influence what I’m doing. I’m just watching TV.
ELIAS: Ah, do they not? Every moment is influenced by beliefs.
RENÉ: But not exactly these beliefs that I’m identifying in this moment.
ELIAS: In what capacity? If you are watching your television, every action that you incorporate is influenced by beliefs. Therefore, what is your association? What are you identifying that is a belief that is not influencing of you in that moment?
RENÉ: I mean, I want to make a specific choice...
RENÉ: ...then I identify the beliefs that don’t allow this specific choice.
ELIAS: As example?
RENÉ: Let’s say I want to make this object (holds up a pen) fly...
RENÉ: ...and I identify the belief that this object can’t fly...
ELIAS: Very well.
RENÉ: ... and in the same moment, I project my attention to the future and I identify another belief that is not influencing my wish to make this object fly.
RENÉ: And this belief that is not influencing this choice to make this object fly, shall I just ignore it? Or also just accept it because it is not concerning what I’m doing in the moment?
ELIAS: Very well. This is associated with what you want.
Now; if what you want is to generate the object to fly and you recognize that you incorporate a belief that objects do not fly, how do you maneuver and manipulate your energy to allow the object to fly, correct?
ELIAS: Very well. Once you recognize the belief that is influencing you that prevents the action of the object flying, it is a matter of acknowledging that, not ignoring it and not attempting to generate an action of forcing it to disappear or to eliminate it, but rather recognizing that this belief has been solidified, so to speak, within your reality. It has become one of your truths.
Now; that is meant that you have generated this belief so strong and unquestionably that it has become an absolute. But is it a truth? No. It is a belief which has been generated as an absolute. You incorporate gravity, which is also a belief, and therefore an inanimate object does not fly or does not levitate.
But is this actually true? Within your beliefs, within your expression, yes. But now evaluate in what you term to be realistically, and you may recognize that although you yourself have not actually generated the action of an object levitating, there are individuals that do. Therefore is it an absolute? No, for it is not impossible. There are individuals that actually generate the action of a levitation of themselves, quite genuinely and quite realistically. Therefore, is it impossible? No.
RENÉ: But when I have accepted the belief, I tried last week to make this object levitate. I have tried to accept the belief and I put my attention on another belief that it is possible that it can fly, but it did not work.
ELIAS: Ah, for there is quite a difference between expressing to yourself that you have accepted a belief and thinking that you have accepted a belief.
RENÉ: Can we try it together and you tell me if I’m accepting it or not?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Very well. And shall you prove to yourself that you are not? (17-second pause) Now stop. What are you doing? Identify.
RENÉ: I concentrate on this object.
ELIAS: Ah ha, and how are you concentrating?
RENÉ: In thought.
ELIAS: Yes. Does thought create your reality?
ELIAS: No. Very well. (10-second pause) Now, stop. What are you doing?
RENÉ: I concentrate on the belief that this can fly.
ELIAS: And what are you doing? How are you concentrating on the belief?
RENÉ: I would say in thought.
ELIAS: Yes. (Chuckles, and a 15-second pause) Now stop. What are you doing?
ELIAS: Ha ha! But you are! Now you are attempting to not think. And what are you also doing? Generating tension.
Let me offer you a different exercise that you may practice with that may be somewhat more validating of your ability and may offer you an example of a difference and in which you may more easily accomplish. You may incorporate thought, but recognize that the thought is not moving the object. You may be familiar with this exercise already. You may also incorporate another individual if you are so choosing, but you may incorporate this action individually also and be successful.
Place your fingers upon a table, very relaxed. In that, direct your concentration to the table. Relax and defocus your vision. You understand? As you defocus your vision but continue to view the table, command the table to tip.
Now; this may incorporate a brief time framework in which you may continue to concentrate; it may not respond immediately. But do not become discouraged and do not discount yourself, but also do not incorporate tension. Allow yourself an ease and a relaxation and defocusing of your vision. Concentrate on the table and continue to express your energy outwardly.
What you shall notice in your visual – which, attempt not to break your concentration, but it may, but it matters not for you may practice again – you shall notice the table becoming less solid and you shall notice that it incorporates movement. The very solidity of the table begins to move, for you begin to view its consciousness in movement and that it is not actually solid and it is not actually stationary.
Once you begin to view the solidity of the table in movement, your energy is manipulating, and in that action, as you continue your concentration, it shall begin to lift. You may maintain that for as brief or as long as you are so choosing. You may repeat the exercise and in that you may reinforce your trust of your ability to actually move and manipulate energy, and therefore also manipulate objects.
This is not an action that you attain to in the future. It is an ability that you incorporate now, and you may accomplish. Perhaps once you have allowed yourself to validate yourself in that exercise, you may be trusting of yourself more fully and accomplish levitating your small object.
RENÉ: Have I already accepted some beliefs?
ELIAS: Let me express to you an identification. The acceptance of beliefs is accomplished in the moment; therefore, you may be accepting of a belief in one moment and you may present yourself with that same belief in a different scenario in another moment and offer yourself the opportunity to accept it again. It is not a situation in which you accept a belief and that becomes an absolute ever after, for that denies choice. As choice is an inherent expression within consciousness, the opportunity is continually presented for acceptance. Have you accepted? In different situations and scenarios and interactions, yes.
RENÉ: Do I have then an objective understanding how to accept a belief? Last week I felt that I understood how to accept a belief, but the last days this has vanished.
ELIAS: At times you may be aware of your method, so to speak, of accepting a belief. More often, you shall be aware of the action of accepting a belief. For in the moment, you shall genuinely experience within yourself that identification of it matters not. Not that no thing matters, but within any particular moment in any particular scenario that whatever you are engaging you incorporate no judgment with, and that is the expression of it matters not, the lack of judgment. That regardless of what is expressed, you maintain your preferences and your opinion, but you recognize that it is individual to you and you do not judge your expression or your preferences or opinion. But you also do not judge any other, which may be different.
RENÉ: I have a problem to direct my attention to myself and the now when I don’t identify any beliefs or if I’m meditating or something like this. When I don’t do anything, I don’t know where to direct my attention. What would you recommend?
ELIAS: It is not always important to direct your attention to the evaluation of your beliefs. This is not a continuous action that you must be engaging.
RENÉ: So just when I create an emotional response it would be beneficial?
ELIAS: In emotional responses – well, not responses but communications – yes, that is significant. Or if you are generating conflict or also in association with your preferences, for preferences are preferred beliefs.
Therefore, to allow yourself the freedom of your preferences and to continue to express your preferences, it is beneficial and significant to be identifying what those beliefs are. But I am not encouraging any individual to be continuously probing and expressing every waking minute to be evaluating and analyzing all of their beliefs. This may be quite exhausting! In this, you may generate many different actions within your day in which it is not necessary to be analyzing every action that you incorporate.
Now; I have offered exercises to different individuals to be evaluating what they are engaging in every action of one day. But this is significant to some individuals for they are not paying attention to themselves and they are questioning why they are generating certain experiences within certain scenarios and they continue to repeat that. They are unaware of what they are doing in their mundane activities in each day that reinforces what they deem to be larger events. That is the significance of offering that type of an exercise, for this allows the individual to become much more aware of themself and what they are generating. This is not to say that they must be incorporating that action in every day and continuously analyzing and evaluating.
Now; what I shall express to you is that each of you incorporates certain beliefs which initially I identified or expressed as individual’s core beliefs.
Now; those core beliefs may now be identified as individual truths. It is significant to be recognizing your individual truths, those beliefs that have become absolutes which you do not even question.
Now; let me also express to you, in the identification of truths and your allowance of yourself to evaluate them and notice and recognize all of their influences, which they incorporate both negative and positive of, many of your truths are also interconnected with your preferences; but they also incorporate a limiting aspect, in limiting some of your choices, for they have become an absolute.
But the significance of recognizing your truths is that you allow yourself to know that they may be your truths but they are not true. In this, as you evaluate and identify and address to those truths, as we began this conversation, all of those other interconnected beliefs begin to be automatically addressed to also. Therefore, it is unnecessary to be evaluating and analyzing all of these branches of that absolute belief, that central belief which has become a truth, for the other beliefs that are interconnected automatically become addressed to also.
RENÉ: My third question: what happens, for example, if there is a car accident with two friends involved and each one creates a reality where the other has disengaged? Wouldn’t this create some problems? Because from this moment on, all of their friends have to decide which individual survived, and to reconfigure the energy of the others continuously.
RENÉ: They have to reconfigure continuously the energy of the disengaged or the not disengaged individual?
ELIAS: Which is what you engage continuously, regardless. For in the interaction of any individual that you engage, you are actually engaging their energy expression that they project outwardly.
RENÉ: And if they disengage and I want them not to disengage...
RENÉ: ...then I have to reconfigure their energy that they have not disengaged.
ELIAS: Yes, you may.
RENÉ: Yes, but you said in another session that we configure the energy of other individuals quite similar to what they are projecting. But if they are not projecting anymore that they are present...
ELIAS: Correct, but I have also expressed that you may be generating within your reality quite physical manifestations of an individual and they may not necessarily be directly participating.
What you are engaging is an energy deposit of the individual and reconfiguring that energy to be generating the physical manifestation. In such scenarios, you may notice with an individual that has not disengaged that your experience may be different from their experience, for their attention is not directed in the energy projection. That is not to say that the energy is not the expression of that individual; it is. The attention is merely not directed in that energy expression. I have expressed to many individuals, even with an individual that has disengaged, you may access their energy and you may be generating your reality in which they are not.
RENÉ: And when I reconfigure all humans on this earth, wouldn’t this be a bit exhausting to reconfigure them all the time?
ELIAS: It is depending upon how you are projecting your energy and depending upon your beliefs and your perception. If you perceive that your energy is limited, perhaps so. But if you recognize that your energy is unlimited, which is correct, perhaps not. Perhaps if you are perceiving it as a game and not a chore, you shall not exhaust your energy at all. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: When I’m experiencing pleasure, I can see that this pleasure is connected with a situation that I perceive to be good.
RENÉ: Is it always correct that if I experience pleasure it is something that I perceive to be good?
ELIAS: Not necessarily, not always. Maybe you are experiencing pleasure and you may perceive what is the source of that pleasure to be bad. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: When I try to accept the belief that the source of the pleasure is good, then the emotion vanishes. Was I pushing this belief or what is the reason it vanishes?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, for there is an association and a judgment that pleasure is associated with good. Therefore, if you remove the good that is the judgment, then you neutralize the experience and generate the dissipation of the pleasure. But you may be generating pleasure and not necessarily be deeming it to be good or bad.
Let me express to you a clarification. Remember, duplicity is a belief systems also. It is not being eliminated. What it is is being accepted in association with this Shift. Therefore, you continue to generate assessments of good and bad but in association with your preferences and your opinions, knowing that they are not absolutes and generating an acceptance without judgment of difference. But you continue to generate an expression individually that certain expressions, certain beliefs, certain experiences in relation to you are good and some are not. That is not to say that that may be associated with any other individual, merely yourself, and that is the recognition of your preferences.
RENÉ: Pleasure is an emotion. Is this correct?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. It may be merely a sensation.
RENÉ: Do you experience pleasure?
ELIAS: Not in the identification that you are familiar with. It would be identified quite differently, for I do not incorporate your beliefs or your physical sensations or emotion.
Now; emotion may be associated with pleasure at times. If it is an emotional communication of validation, you may also incorporate an emotional signal, a feeling. But not always, for you may be incorporating different experiences and not necessarily offer yourself an emotional communication in validation, for it is unnecessary.
RENÉ: Do you want to make me aware of something? Perhaps reiterating an inner communication that I don’t notice?
ELIAS: Perhaps not necessarily an inner communication, but an identification of being aware of generating a balance – not weighing as heavily in thought, but not excluding thought, either, and in this, paying attention to those three elements of yourself. In that paying attention, listen to what you are communicating, notice what you are doing and recognize what your translation is in thought. In that awareness of all three, generate a balance in each scenario, moving the one that may be out of alignment into alignment with the others but not forcing, merely recognizing which is out of alignment with the other two and evaluating what is influencing that, what is generating that.
RENÉ: Is it possible for me to be objectively aware that I’m moving and creating every atom, like I’m aware that I’m moving my body?
ELIAS: Yes, if you are so choosing. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: I belief that dreams have a certain function and purpose, and that allowing lucid dreams could disturb this function. Is this correct?
ELIAS: Dream interaction is an incorporation of objective awareness translating subjective movement.
Now; recognize that objective awareness expresses in abstract terms, therefore abstract imagery. Subjective awareness is more precise. Not that the objective is not precise, but in its preciseness it may incorporate hundreds and hundreds of different types of imageries to express one action or one movement. The subjective incorporates one movement and the objective translates in many, many, many different types of abstract objective imagery.
In dream state, you are generating a subjective movement. The objective awareness is not always engaged, or rather your attention is not always engaged with your objective awareness in association with dream state. Your objective awareness is always engaged, but your attention varies. Your attention may be projected to your subjective awareness to the exclusion of the objective for the most part, and therefore you do not remember your dream.
But the incorporation of the objective awareness in association with dream activity or subjective movement generates the dream imagery, and it is significant, for the subjective and objective move in harmony. Therefore, this may offer you information as to the harmony of both. It is not necessary that you be remembering your dreams or be incorporating the objective awareness within your dream state, for your objective and subjective are always in harmony. Therefore, whatever your objective awareness is doing, your subjective is doing also. RENÉ: Then it matters not if I have always lucid dreams?
ELIAS: Yes and no. It is not ultimately important if you are trusting your objective expression. But it may be helpful at times in understanding your objective expressions, if they may be confusing to you and if you are generating a questioning of what you are presenting to yourself objectively in this abstract expression. It may be somewhat helpful to you in your understanding to also be incorporating your dream imagery, for that shall be abstract also,, for it is an objective expression.
But generally speaking, it shall be different from the abstract objective that is expressed in waking state. Therefore, you have two different imageries but you know that they are linked. They are expressing the same direction and they are being influenced by the same expression. In viewing two different types of imageries, you may discover the commonality or the link between them, which may be clarifying in your understanding of your objective awareness.
RENÉ: How many focuses do I have? My impression is 587.
RENÉ: Human focuses? (Elias nods in agreement) And how many dolphin focuses? My impression is 12 dolphin focuses.
RENÉ: How many future focuses do I have? My impression is I have more future than past focuses.
ELIAS: Your impression is correct, but slightly more than half.
RENÉ: Am I a final focus?
ELIAS: Yes, but the final focus is within this time framework.
RENÉ: Is he on Hawaii or in Vermont?
ELIAS: No, but has visited Hawaii.
RENÉ: Do I have another focus on Hawaii or in Vermont presently?
RENÉ: In both locations?
ELIAS: The latter.
RENÉ: In Vermont?
RENÉ: Is another focus of myself in objective contact with you?
ELIAS: Not yet, but incorporating a potential.
RENÉ: How many present focuses do I have? My impression is five.
RENÉ: Do you create the clicking sound in my kitchen or is this me?
ELIAS: Myself. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: It is quite often! Do you also create the blinking light?
ELIAS: At times, yes! (Chuckles)
RENÉ: If an inner communication says that I don’t allow myself choices, will the emotion continue until I engage the choice that I’m denying myself?
ELIAS: Not necessarily, but until the message is received. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: If I project my attention only to the now and to myself, will I ever experience fear? I think it is only associated with others or the future or the past.
ELIAS: It is possible but not absolute, for you may be holding your attention in the now and you may be concentrating your attention upon self and you may also be allowing a bleed-through of another focus of yourself.
RENÉ: This would be the only opportunity where I would experience fear?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. You may generate fear in association with your own energy and your own power. (Chuckles)
RENÉ: Is my Dream Walker name Tatumis?
ELIAS: Not S, E. Tatumee.
RENÉ: I think our time is up.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend. I may express to you that I have enjoyed our conversation. I shall continue to be in interaction and contact with you and shall anticipate our next meeting, and express my encouragement to you. Do not analyze so very much. (Chuckles) Allow yourself playfulness. To you, my friend, in tremendous affection and great lovingness, until our next meeting, au revoir.
RENÉ: Au revoir.
Elias departs after 1 hour, 5 minutes (actual time not available).
