ďWhy Complicate It?Ē
ďYour Natural Movement Is Not BadĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Wendy (Luelyth).
Elias arrives at 8:00 AM. (Arrival time is 19 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
WENDY: Good morning, Elias! I am looking at your words upon my computer screen, the words you said to Jim/Yarr: ďIf you are holding your attention upon self and allowing a balance and a free flow of energy, concentrating your attention upon self, you cease to be creating judgments outwardly. This creates an automatic tremendous flow of allowance in energy.Ē (1)
Iím just thinking to myself, I absolutely agree with that, and boy, I have the hardest time... It makes so much sense to me, and I just feel like why canít I just keep myself over there? But I guess thatís the whole point, right? If we could do it perfectly, we wouldnít be talking to you. (Elias laughs)
Heís talking about a creature and I have a creature... Well, let me ask you something before I get into the creature thing. When I first talked to you, I came up with my little short version of my intent. I noticed throughout the transcripts that you have given people a long version of their intent, the more detailed version of their intent, and I was wondering if you could speak to me about that a little bit.
ELIAS: And what is your impression?
WENDY: When I talked to you, I just labeled myself ďtreasure hunter,Ē because what I seem to like to do is to explore everything Ė everything! Ė to find something of value in it, and then I share that information with others. I mean, Iím happy just to have the information for myself, but I also seem to be a resource for other people, to give them a different perspective on things, to offer them more choices and different ways of looking at things.
WENDY: So, that would be my impression. Is that long enough for me? (Both laugh)
ELIAS: Now; let me express to you the inquiry of why shall you choose to be complicating your explanation to yourself of your intent?
WENDY: That brings up another sentence of yours that I donít have before me from somebodyís transcript. Somebody was asking you about Ė I donít know, it could have been about winning the lottery Ė and you said that for some people, creating wealth or whatever they want like that does not fit with their intent, their direction nor with their contribution to the Shift.
WENDY: All my life, Iíve had a desire that I could sum up in one word. Iíve always wanted to have what I call an ďestate.Ē
Now, Iím not talking about an estate necessarily as a big castle. I want land, for some reason. Iíve always wanted land. I donít know if this is a bleed-through from some other focus, like maybe Iím in the 1700s somewhere and I want land. But Iím looking at the fact that I have this desire, and I was thinking, ďShould I give this up?Ē Is this not in alignment with my intent, my direction, and my contribution to the Shift, that I have some of the things I think I want?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. This would not be in opposition with your intent and your value fulfillment in this focus. It is more so associated with your beliefs that influence your movements in not necessarily creating that, but it is not that it would be contrary to your value fulfillment or your intent. Quite the contrary, in actuality, allowing yourself to generate that type of manifestation could be somewhat enhancing of new directions in association with your intent, in new discoveries and allowing yourself to generate new directions of creativity in association with your intent.
WENDY: Okay, then! (Both laugh) I wonít try to make myself quit wanting it.
An interesting thing happened in the last two months since Iíve spoken to you. I was grappling with the whole issue of trying to make myself do something productive, and you suggested that I look at all my associations to work, so I made a big list. In fact, Iíve been adding to the list, because I have a lot of associations with work. I had positive associations, what we would call positive ones, and what I would call negative ones.
What I did with that for the last two months is I have been playing with and practicing relaxing and not having to do something in order to feel less fearful. Because I notice that if Iím doing what I consider to be productive work that it calms me, that I feel calmer. If Iím not doing things, if Iím just relaxing, whatever form that may take, I tend to get anxious. So, I spent the last two months noticing my automatic responses when I tried to get myself to do anything in the way of work, and just generally relaxing.
Iíve been undecided about what I was going to do with myself next, where I was going to live, what I was going to do. Halfway through the two month period, I started hearing a word in my head one day, the sound of a word, a town, that I think I may have driven through about 20 years ago, and I remember nothing about it. I looked it up on the Internet and I decided I would move there. Itís up in the Pacific Northwest. Yet I notice Iím in no hurry to move there. My lease wonít be up here until beginning of November. I notice you said something about moving physically, making a move, had to do with great subjective movement, and Iím just curious, do you have any... I seem to have forgotten why I might have purposefully decided that I would stay here another couple months when Iíve decided I could move somewhere else.
ELIAS: And what is your question?
WENDY: My question is, Iím going to move but I seem to be in no hurry to do it. Why donít I? I mean, Iím not doing anything here. What am I doing? (Laughing) Iím just drifting through life, Elias!
ELIAS: Now; how have we begun this discussion?
WENDY: We were talking about my intent.
ELIAS: Correct, and your question concerning your intent. And what was my initial response?
WENDY: Why complicate it.
Now; in this, you have generated the theme of this conversation. For this is what you are addressing to now, and what you have been addressing to in this recent past time framework Ė moving in a direction of noticing different expressions, different manifestations, noticing different responses that you generate, noticing many different directions and expressions and imageries. But what you are doing in this is addressing to the complication of many of your expressions, how automatically you move into an expression of or an association of complicating different scenarios that you incorporate within your focus.
This is an automatic action, which you have not quite yet objectively recognized the significance of this movement and the significance of allowing yourself to be satisfied with the simplicity of different movements and different expressions, but this is what you are moving into. Some of what is generated in that movement may somewhat appear to be some lack of motivation or complacency, which it is actually not.
In actuality, what you are generating is an allowance of yourself to generate more of a calm rather than a push. You are moving your energy in a different manner. That manner may appear to be unfamiliar to you and therefore, what do you do? You complicate.
WENDY: Yes, I do. Well, yes, and Iím having hints of this, because one of the things Iím noticing, itís so clear to me that all of my... I used to have plans for myself. I thought I was going to do something with myself, and what I notice is that I like the simplest things. I mean, I have a life that in objective terms satisfies me totally, and itís the smallest possible life. I like playing with my cats, feeding the hummingbirds, taking long walks outdoors, reading. I mean, I donít like doing... It doesnít matter how insignificant these things are, they amuse me. The whole day can go by and I can do what people call ďnothing,Ē and I get up and Iím ready to do it again the next day. I like it. And yet Iíve been thinking, is this allowed? (Laughs)
ELIAS: I am understanding. In this, also, you may allow yourself to engage what you term to be simple actions, but you also complicate the situation by incorporating analyzation of what you are doing. You may be engaging simple actions in objective movements such as you have offered in description, but you also engage thought processes that complicate your simplicity...
WENDY: Yes, I admit to that!
ELIAS: ...in continuously questioning what you are doing and whether what you are doing is acceptable or not, or whether what you are doing is good, or whether it is productive, or whether it is not productive, or whether you should be engaging this simplicity, or whether you should be generating other actions.
WENDY: Yeah, and whether Iíll ever stop, and whether it ever matters! (Elias chuckles) I mean, maybe I just want to move into my car with my cats and live like this forever. (Both laugh) Maybe that would be okay.
As I said, I used to have plans for myself, so this doesnít, of course, fit anything that I used to think about. Well, thatís not actually true. In a way, Iíd have to say that all the plans Ė half the plans Ė that I had for myself were to be able to do anything I wanted Ė which meant nothing, if thatís what I wanted to do. And yet, I still think I have to work.
ELIAS: Which in itself is a complication, your generating a plan to do nothing. (Both laugh) Therefore...
WENDY: Then, my assignment, if I choose to accept it, is to really get into this and... You know, one of the most valuable things that Iíve gotten out of the transcripts and the information that you provide is you say, ďIt matters not,Ē the idea of no judgment about anything I do, just to say itís okay. Yet as I said, to be able to hold myself over on that side of things seems to be very challenging for me.
I do it best when Iím all by myself. Iím not spending time around people right now, so itís easier for me to do it when Iím all by myself. I have plenty of judgments without projecting another personís opinion of me into the scene.
ELIAS: I am aware. Let me express to you an identification that it matters not whether you incorporate interaction with other individuals or not. It may be as challenging to hold your attention upon you, and at times more challenging to hold your attention upon you, and not to be generating judgments in time frameworks in which you are not interactive with other individuals, for you provide yourself with less distractions.
WENDY: Yeah, just me and my busy little mind.
ELIAS: Correct. In this, as you generate this time framework in which you are alone, so to speak, objectively or physically, it is challenging to actually be accepting of yourself and to genuinely be paying attention to yourself.
Many times in interactions with other individuals, you may be noticing what you are generating within you, for you are paying attention to the reflection of the other individual, and this triggers your own allowance of yourself to be paying attention to yourself. But without the interaction of other individuals, you do not view the reflection as clearly, and this is what you question. This is the time framework in which it becomes more challenging to actually focus your attention upon yourself and be accepting of yourself, for it is automatic to be projecting your attention outwardly.
Even in your example of incorporating walks or feeding the birds or interacting with your creatures or reading a book Ė these may be pleasurable activities that you incorporate, but where is your attention? It is divided between the outside environment and whatever action you are incorporating. Your attention is divided between that outside stimulus, so to speak, regardless of what it is, and your thoughts. But paying attention to your thoughts is merely paying attention to translations and is an easy avenue for projection, of which your attention is not necessarily actually upon yourself or even in the now.
WENDY: So, this could be graduate school, thatís how hard it is! (Both laugh)
ELIAS: It is a tremendous movement that you are engaging. But you also recognize, as you begin generating this type of movement, you begin to realize how challenging this actually is, for it is quite unfamiliar.
WENDY: Yes, it is.
For years Iíve had these episodes... I donít know what to call them. Letís call them ďsinking spells.Ē I think thatís what women had back in the 17- and 1800s. I will feel as though all of my energy has drained away. What Iíve been working on is not fighting, not resisting anything that Iím manifesting. Instead of thinking that if I donít like something, like if Iím feeling depressed or if Iím having one of these sinking spells where I literally feel as though all of my energy is just drained from my body and I can hardly go on, instead of fighting it and thinking itís bad, Iíve just been saying, ďOkay, this is whatís happening right now, and Iím just going to accept it.Ē So, what are these sinking spells? Can I change my perception and say Iím just feeling very relaxed?
ELIAS: You may.
WENDY: I mean, is that useful? Or is there some other message there for me?
ELIAS: What you are generating is in actuality quite understandable. Recognize that all of these actions are influenced by beliefs and how those beliefs are expressed.
Therefore, in this, you incorporate an expressed belief that if you are engaging certain types of actions, they shall be draining of your energy, and that you may merely incorporate a limited time framework in which you may be expressing tremendous bursts of energy, and subsequently you shall experience a drain.
Now; what is significant in identifying these beliefs and how they are influencing is that it also allows you to evaluate what you are actually doing. This generates more of a familiarity of your individual patterns.
You generate these time periods, that you term to be these sinking periods, subsequent to intense time frameworks in which you are concentrating your attention very strongly in association with thought and analyzation, once again the complicating element. In generating such concentration of your attention in certain directions, you express a tremendous volume of energy in association with that expression. Therefore, the belief is triggered and you generate the cause and effect. You generate the expression of intensity of attention for a time framework and subsequent to that, you generate an exhaustion.
Now; this is very much associated with beliefs, for in actuality you may generate an intensity of energy in any direction in any expression for extended time frameworks and not deplete energy, for energy is not limited and you do not incorporate a limited supply of energy. But it matters not for the belief is expressed, and that generates a reality.
Beliefs are not merely beliefs, and they are not expressions of what you believe or what you do not believe. Many times individuals incorporate expressed beliefs that they do not even agree with themselves.
WENDY: Well, yes, because I was just going to say that one of the things that I constantly feel annoyed with myself about is I donít think I should ever be tired or feel exhausted. I tend to think that I should be able to go on forever without ever resting.
ELIAS: I am quite understanding. This is an example of incorporating an expressed belief and disagreeing with your own expressed belief. But your evidence is in the expression. This is what generates an expressed belief, for it is expressed, and that is evidenced in what actually occurs, regardless of...
WENDY: The thing that I do say to myself a lot is that Iím tired of trying to figure everything out. Because this analyzation that youíre talking about, this thing that I do where Iím always analyzing things, I am always trying to figure things out, Iím always trying to understand, Iím trying to understand what Iím doing and I find that exhausting.
ELIAS: I understand.
But, now; also recognize that what you are generating is actually in some manners fighting with your own intent. Think of your intent, your ďtreasure hunter.Ē This is an action that you naturally generate in analyzing, in attempting to discover the whys and the workings of all that is within your reality. Those are your treasures, and therefore this action is actually a natural movement that you generate. But you incorporate expressed beliefs that move in opposition to that action, and therefore, you generate this action of complicating.
Now; I am not expressing to you that your expression of analyzation is bad or wrong, or that you should be discontinuing that action. Quite to the contrary, as I have stated, it is a natural movement that you have incorporated throughout all of your focus. The entirety of this focus you have generated that type of expression; but in association with your beliefs, you also generate a judgment that this is bad.
There is a difference between this natural action of questioning and discovering your treasures in different expressions of analyzation, and complicating. You remove the fun in your action of analyzing by complicating. The actual action of analyzing Ė with you individually, not generally speaking Ė but in association with you and your intent in this focus, that action in itself, without being complicated or judged, actually generates an element of fun. And if you are genuinely evaluating, you yourself may recognize different time frameworks within your focus in which you have generated fun in the discovery through that analyzation, almost as though you offer yourself little jewels as you generate this action of analyzing.
But you complicate that natural action in judgments and attempting to be forcing that action of analyzing in unnecessary directions and in expectations of yourself. That is how it becomes complicated and that is how you lose your fun. Are you understanding?
WENDY: Letís see, I understand that I think itís fun and I do it all the time, thatís true. I do it all the time, and it is what reveals treasures to me. Iíve put into my life frequently people who donít have a shred of analyzation interest in them and then have them reflect to me my judgment about it by acting as though... What they say is that Iím weird. They act as though Iím tiresome in my interest in everything. Are you saying that that is my judgment on it?
ELIAS: Yes. That is your reflection to yourself of how you complicate your natural movement and you remove the fun. Therefore, you generate the judgments and you reflect this in other individuals.
WENDY: Partly in alignment with my Sumari alignment, my tendency is I donít want to take things to completion. Whereas, Iím interested in the details because I like to uncover the least distortion in things, due to my Sumafi leanings. I do jump around a lot. I donít like to follow anything through. Iím not interested in that, and I certainly do notice that I take the mass beliefs about being focused and doing something productive with my constant analyzation, I do use that to make things less fun.
WENDY: Because thatís what Iím doing right now is asking myself, ďWhatís going to come of this?Ē I mean, Iím having fun, but whatís the point?
ELIAS: (Laughs) That is the point!
WENDY: I know the point is to have fun, but I guess it all comes down to, oh, it sounds so tawdry and trite to say this, but it all comes down to money. I mean, I eventually have to get back into manifesting money. So, what Iím working with right now Ė Iím playing with or practicing Ė Iím doing all this right now with the assumption that if I can find the free flow of myself and just allow it to be, that I will naturally be productive in whatever way is natural to me.
WENDY: Like the man next door said to me when I was giving him some information on the eighth unrelated subject in the week, he said, ďYou could be a consultant, area of expertise limited by nothing.Ē (Elias laughs) And in a way, I guess I could be. Iíve never seen anybody doing that, but yeah, I could give advice.
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, you may incorporate any action that is your preference, that you generate a pleasure with, that you incorporate fun with, and manifest money in association with it.
WENDY: I think you told me that the first time I talked to you. I believe that it is true, even though I notice that I donít act as though I believe itís true.
ELIAS: And this, once again, is what I have expressed to you concerning beliefs. It matters not whether you believe a belief or not, the evidence is expressed in what you do, not necessarily what you think.
WENDY: So hereís another glob of beliefs Ė duplicity/sexuality beliefs. I notice that I like things to be what I would call perfect, immaculate, pretty to me. And I notice that what I do is create imperfection in things that I would prefer not to be imperfect and then feel bad about it. Like I got this new Ė to me Ė car, and it has both door dings and hail dents on this perfectly beautiful, seemingly flawless black car.
One of my cats has licked his back... Oh, I might as well just say Iíve done it. My creature, a reflection of me, has licked his back until he has running, bleeding sores on his back, which are perfectly noticeable to everyone and anyone, especially now that I have him wearing a t-shirt to keep him from doing it. Is this thing about perfection, how does this link into my intent and my complication of things?
ELIAS: I may express to you, this is another aspect of paying attention to what you are addressing to in this time framework of acceptance of natural movements and not generating the judgments concerning them, and in this, not generating expectations in conjunction with your natural movement.
Now; this is the association with perfection with you, that if certain elements within your expression, your focus, your environment are not perfect, they are flawed and that is bad.
Now; in those flaws, you reflect to yourself what you are not accepting within yourself, not recognizing that it is not a question of flaws, it is a question of uniqueness.
Now; I am understanding that you are presenting to yourself objective imagery that quite appears to be flaws. But this is also purposeful, for you generate your natural movement of the analyzation, which you have incorporated in association with these examples that you have offered to myself.
In association with your vehicle and with your creature, you have allowed yourself to generate your natural movement of analyzing different elements and expressions of yourself, recognizing different aspects of yourself that are associated with the imagery that you are presenting to yourself. But in that, you also become rigid and express an expectation automatically. And what is the expectation? That you have generated this analyzation, and therefore your expectation is that the objective imagery shall thusly immediately change, for you shall immediately change your perception. But your perception has not changed. You have offered yourself information, but you have not changed your perception.
What have you done? You have merely complicated your natural movement of analyzation. What is your expression of satisfaction in this movement of analyzation? I may express to you, your satisfaction is in the analyzation itself and in the jewels that you offer to yourself. And why do you generate a satisfaction? For in the moment in which you are genuinely allowing yourself your natural flow in fun in that expression of analyzation, you do not generate judgments and you express an acceptance of those jewels that you have offered to yourself, the excitement of the discovery and the acceptance of what you have presented to yourself. But in what you have been expressing recently, you are generating the natural movement of the analyzation but you are not generating the acceptance of it or the acceptance of what you offer to yourself.
What has your direction of analyzation and discovery been recently? Exposure, has it not?
WENDY: And I turned up the volume on that yesterday. I manifested six trees dying right next to my house, so now theyíre cut down and Iím even more exposed. Powerful, arenít I? (Laughs)
ELIAS: And not expressing the acceptance of that. Noticing, yes; analyzing, yes; judging, yes. Accepting, no!
WENDY: But donít I get to have some preferences?
ELIAS: Of course!
WENDY: But I can have them and still be accepting?
WENDY: Once Iím a realized master or something... (Both laugh)
But Elias, the reason we want to be accepting, the ONLY reason we want to be accepting Ė weíre just going to admit it to you; Iím going to admit it for everybody Ė the only reason we want to be accepting is because we want things to change. (Elias laughs) Thatís it! Weíll just pretend that itís okay to be accepting for itself, but the fact is that we Ė I Ė try to accept things in hopes that I wonít have to accept them anymore.
ELIAS: Ah, and this is the trap. Acceptance is not an action or an expression that is generated once and for all time.
WENDY: I know. We have to do it all the time. Itís so TIRESOME! (Both laugh)
ELIAS: In actuality, my friend, you may discover that as you become more relaxed and more accepting in more of your time framework and it becomes easier for you to generate that expression for it becomes more familiar to you, it actually is not tiring and is quite liberating, and requires very little energy. (Both laugh) The volume of energy that is being expressed is in association with fighting with the acceptance.
WENDY: Itís the beliefs, right, if I donít accept the belief, then Iím just wrestling with them?
WENDY: What I notice I tend to do is I try to wrestle them around to some... I guess what Iím trying to do is instead of really accepting them, Iím trying to find some aspect of the belief that is acceptable. Instead of saying I could just have no judgment about any of this, what Iím doing constantly is sifting through and trying to find some way I could see it as acceptable.
ELIAS: Which initially may be a method that you may incorporate to move yourself into an actual acceptance.
WENDY: Iím in graduate school, Elias. I need to do better! (Both laugh)
ELIAS: Ah, the better syndrome!
WENDY: The better syndrome, the swamp of duplicity!
ELIAS: Also, if you allow yourself to genuinely recognize that your beliefs are not your enemy, this may be quite helpful.
WENDY: ďMy beliefs are my friends.Ē
ELIAS: They merely are. (Both laugh) Not necessarily expressions that you must embrace, but also not expressions that you must annihilate.
WENDY: Yeah, I can just live with them Ė maybe get some mosquito netting so the bad ones donít bite me, some belief mosquito netting. (Elias laughs)
So this thing that Iíve done with my little creature projection, where my creature licked his back until he had bleeding sores and now heís wearing a little t-shirt and he would still like to lick his back, of course. Now, I thought in a moment of analyzation Ė I offered myself a jewel about this Ė and I thought I was so clear, but as you say, just because I give myself information doesnít shift my perception. So remind me again, how could I have done that differently so that I would be more accepting?
ELIAS: How you shift your perception is to be accepting.
WENDY: So, if I look at this creature and as we say duplicitously, things have improved with him. He seems much happier and more relaxed Ė that would be me that weíre talking about Ė and he still has these sores on his back that he would like to lick, but...
ELIAS: What are you presenting yourself with? You recognize that you are presenting yourself with elements of exposure. Now that you recognize that it is concerning exposure, move your attention to what you are actually doing, what you are actually expressing, not merely the analyzation. You have generated the analyzation. You have offered yourself the information. Now turn your attention to your response and what you are actually doing.
Yes, you are presenting yourself with imagery associated with exposure. But how are you responding to that and how is this reflected with your creature? What are you reflecting in this? The creature has generated a manifestation of exposure, which you view to be bad and which has motivated you to be...
WENDY: To cover it up.
ELIAS: Correct. Let me express to you, it is not a matter of changing what you have chosen in covering the creature. It is a matter of recognizing what you are doing, that your responsiveness to this exposure within yourself and your environment is not being accepted; you are fighting with this and you are expressing your judgment that this is bad: it is bad; it is uncomfortable. And you are not accepting.
Your imagery of covering the creature is a clear expression of reflection of how you are covering your own view of your own expressions in judgment and not accepting of it.
WENDY: What weíre talking about here is my judgment of my own unique self exposed in the world, plus...
WENDY: ...plus my judgment upon myself that I have all these brilliant insights and present myself with all this information, and yet my life is not perfect.
ELIAS: Yes, and that is unacceptable to you.
WENDY: It is! I mean, I can pretend that it is acceptable Ė I can try to see that it is. I can get there from time to time.
ELIAS: Let me express to you, your perception shall change when you genuinely recognize that exposure is not bad, and that it is, in actuality, your avenue to receiving. You cannot receive without openness, and openness is exposure.
WENDY: And yet I agree with that Ė I agree that that makes sense. Itís just that my familiar response to exposure is ďbad things will happen.Ē
ELIAS: Correct, and it is frightening. That fear is what generates the prevention of the allowance of yourself.
WENDY: So, the answer is practice, practice, practice! (Elias laughs)
I was just noticing that with this cat problem that I have Ė this cat projection that Iím doing Ė I donít believe that it just happened. I believe I did it. I believe I manifested it, like you say, specifically, purposefully, etcetera. I donít think that I can fix it by taking him to a veterinarian. You know, nothing is broken, itís just a projection of energy. I can go through all that, and yet I donít have the comfort of thinking thereís some outside way of solving this problem or any problem that I have right now. Yet, I donít trust myself, either. I mean, I know that trusting myself is the only thing thatís going to fix anything.
ELIAS: Now; let me also identify with you in what you have expressed in this now. This is a very commonly expressed distortion of this information. Knowing that you create all of your reality is not being rigid in exchanging one philosophy for another philosophy which is equally as constraining.
In this, you create all of your reality; therefore, all that is outside of you, you have created also. Therefore, all of the resources that are available to you IN ANY FORM, you have also created, and it is your choice of how you incorporate them or how you use them.
Therefore, I may express to you it is not better or more enlightened to recognize that you create your reality and that therefore you have created this scenario with the creature, therefore it is useless or pointless to be incorporating any outside sources to be addressing to what you have created, and therefore you must manipulate through energy some miraculous alteration of the creature. Do you recognize what a tremendous distortion this is of this information?
The creature incorporates choice also. It is moving in cooperation with you and your energy. In agreement with your movement, it is choosing to be reflective of you Ė but it is choosing. And you create ALL of your expressions within your reality: all of your physicians, all of your resources of sciences, all of your resources of any type YOU have created.
But what have you done, but moved into more expressions of judgment that you are incorporating any action in association with other individuals and incorporating them as a focal point in different methods? What do you all generate regardless but methods in all that you do? Therefore, what does it matter what method you incorporate? One is not better than another; they are all merely choices.
You have expressed quite clearly the snare in this type of distortion. For you are correct, you generate the judgment that you cannot incorporate any action outside of yourself for you have created this manifestation; therefore, you must alter it, but you do not trust yourself in your energy to be magically altering the manifestations. Therefore, what have you created but your own trap? This is not liberating.
WENDY: No, it is not. Itís not, and Elias, this particular problem that Iíve created with this cat is, if you look at what the medical and scientific professions say about it, the veterinarians have a 20 to 40 percent success rate in treating these things. In other words, they donít treat them very successfully because, in my view, it is reflective of a problem Ė if weíre going to call it a problem; Iíll call it a problem Ė itís reflective of a problem that if I canít get myself to calm down, if I canít deal with what is going on with me, Iím going to keep reflecting it out there, even if I take him to a veterinarian.
ELIAS: Correct, and I am understanding of what you are expressing. I am understanding of your awareness and your knowledge of yourself, and your beliefs and your recognition that ultimately it is a question of addressing to yourself and altering your perception and manipulating your energy in different manners. You are correct. But also, in this, allow yourself to relax and recognize the judgments that you are expressing in relation to yourself.
You have generated a physical manifestation outwardly to reflect the harshness that you are expressing with yourself. This is the reason that we incorporate this discussion this day, that you may allow yourself to view that your natural movement is not bad. You are not a freak, in your terms. (Chuckles)
WENDY: Although some people may find it annoying, thatís their choice.
ELIAS: And it is your choice not to draw those individuals to yourself, for it is unnecessary to reflect that to yourself any longer if you are not generating the judgment within yourself. Are you understanding?
WENDY: Yes. And next time I talk to you, I wonít be doing that any more!
ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well, and I shall congratulate you!
WENDY: Thank you very much, Elias. I will continue to practice relaxing and acceptance, and pray for inspiration in those areas.
ELIAS: And I shall offer my energy to you also in encouragement for your continued success. To you my friend, in great affection and dearness, au revoir.
WENDY: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 9:08 AM.
