ďExpressing without Reinforcing Belief SystemsĒ
ďEach Individual Is Affecting of the Movement of Your WorldĒ
ďOuija Board InteractionsĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Laura (Belagia).
Elias arrives at 9:12 AM. (Arrival time is 20 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
LAURA: Good morning, Elias!
ELIAS: (Chuckles) And how is your adventure proceeding?
LAURA: Very well. Iím satisfied with my adventure this time. I donít know; itís funny. I have to qualify it, because August is often a very good month for me. I have this sort of cycle and August, for whatever reason, I often feel really centered and happy and energetic and creative and all of those things in August. Would you like to comment on that? By February Iím 15 pounds fatter and I just want to curl up in bed with a book and not talk to anybody. (Laughs) Thatís my cycle in the last few years, and I want to break out of that cycle and continue my August feeling throughout the year.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you that this, in actuality, is not as unusual as you may think, for many, many, many individuals generate different perceptions in association with different seasons. This is influenced by the individualís beliefs, but it is quite real. Individuals do express many times less activity and less of a brightness, so to speak, within your winter season than they do within the summer season or even the spring season.
LAURA: I always feel in the spring that I start to bloom like a flower. Itís funny; Iíve just noticed this cycle. Iíll just go with it! Do what I choose. Iíve noticed in myself, I suppose you would term it a widening of awareness, that I feel more relaxed day by day and satisfied with my choices and enjoyment in my moments of life and all of those things.
ELIAS: Quite freeing, is it not?
LAURA: It is, and itís very simple at the same time. Anybody looking from the outside would just think she has a nice life but itís not anything spectacular, it doesnít stand out. But inside of me, itís satisfying moment by moment, the way we experience and change in the moment. Itís satisfying. I donít feel often frustrated Ė well, little annoyances or whatever here and there Ė but no big drama at all, no drama at all.
I was just saying to Mary, my sister moved in next door six months ago and she has a lot of drama going on. Iím kind of observing that, maybe living that drama vicariously without having to experience it myself.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Therefore offering yourself somewhat of a spice but not to the point of conflicting.
LAURA: As my appointment time is approaching, I start to think of things I might want to talk to you about or ask you about. I feel like Iím so in tune with myself right now that whenever I ask a question, either through a session that I read of yours thatís been published or through some kind of life experience, it gets answered pretty quickly for me and I begin to live that out in my life. So I donít have any, that I can think of right at this moment, any big issues that I have to even talk about. Iíd like to, if itís possible, open it up to you. Is there anything that you see in my energy, anywhere that I can start to focus my attention to widen further?
ELIAS: You are already. And you are exhibiting evidence to yourself, in what you have expressed, that you are widening your awareness quite effectively, and in that, you are paying more attention and listening to yourself.
This is the point, my friend. That, in a manner of speaking, in your terms, is the goal, so to speak, to be moving in a direction in which you genuinely are paying attention to yourself. You genuinely are listening to yourself and trusting yourself, and therefore, you do offer yourself responses to your own questions and you begin to allow yourself to trust your responses more and more without conflict and without doubt, which is the point. And this is the action of this shift.
LAURA: So I am working Ė I donít like the term working Ė Iím thinking about the words that Iím using, too, more, trying to be more careful with those, expressing myself more accurately, less distortion.
ELIAS: I am understanding. Also this is a significant action, for you are paying attention to how you are expressive and paying attention to the meaning of your expressions. In this, that is also another example of shifting, for in that you begin to redefine your terms and that also shifts your perception.
LAURA: I have noticed that the more I become clear with my expressions and the more I operate from the concept or the truth that I really do create all of my reality Ė including the responses that others have toward me, which was kind of a hurdle for me to get over Ė the more satisfied, happy, easy-going, effortless and enjoyable my life becomes. Thatís what Iíve seen lately. Now I have been widening it out to see all of these little conversations that we have with other people where we use our ordinary terminology, I see how often I limit myself by the terminology Iím using.
LAURA: It shows me my beliefs there. I do have a hard time talking with people sometimes without falling back into that ordinary sort of belief system and expression, such as my son is at day camp this week and itís expensive, and then I say, oh yeah, itís expensive. Thatís showing me my belief about money, that maybe moneyís hard to come by or that type of thing. It feels okay with me on the inside but I do find it awkward trying to have ordinary conversations without sounding strange.
ELIAS: I am understanding. But this also becomes easier and easier as you become more and more familiar with altering how you are interactive and as you become familiar with this action that you are engaging more and more now, of being aware of how you are communicating, what you are reflecting and whether that is influencing in a reinforcing manner of expressed beliefs that perhaps you are choosing not to be expressing any longer, moving your attention in the direction of different beliefs.
LAURA: So because I create all of my reality, as I become more comfortable with changing my use of terminology, the responses that Iíll get from others will be that thatís just an ordinary way to communicate?
ELIAS: Yes, for you shall reflect yourself through other individuals, and in this, the energy that you are projecting outwardly also generates quite a difference in what you create in relation to other individuals and how they are responsive to you.
LAURA: Itís true. I noticed that the other day. I think that I talked with you one time about my son had a friend over and they had gone over to a little camp Ė we live on a huge piece of property and thereís a little campsite. This boy had gotten poison oak from head to toe, and his mom was really upset and thought I had been irresponsible as a parent and all of this stuff. We ended up being friends, friendly, but Iíve been afraid to have this little boy over again. I have had him over a couple of times; I had him over the other night and they did run around and play. I was a little tense about it. While I was cooking dinner I had my husband run and check on him, things like that which I donít do with any other children, I just trust them to play. Then they ended up using hammers and nails. My son is really into making medieval weapons and things like that, and they made them out on the porch out back. She asked me the next day what they did and I told her what they did, she said, ďOh, that sounds like so much fun!Ē And I thought thatís interesting, because just not too long ago she was upset and thinking I was irresponsible. I thought that was a reflection to me that Iím trusting myself more.
LAURA: I think thereís this cultural belief system now that children are very fragile, that youíve got to watch them every minute, and itís gotten much, much more fearful then when I was a child. We had a lot more physical freedom. I still believe in that physical freedom for children and yet Iím trying to fit into this societyís norm. I thought that was a reflection of that conflict that might have been happening.
ELIAS: Yes. But also acknowledge yourself, for you are allowing yourself to be moving in the direction of your preferences more, and not concerning yourself with that societal assimilation and generating these expectations of yourself that you must be generating actions that are compliant with mass beliefs and societal guidelines, but rather allowing yourself much more freedom in expressing your preferences and trusting yourself in those preferences. You generate less conflict, not merely within yourself, but also outwardly with other individuals, which is much more freeing, is it not?
LAURA: Very freeing. (Elias laughs) I want to keep going in that direction! Thatís been one of my big issues, trying to achieve approval from other people. I feel like Iím accomplishing well in that area right now, just being myself and making decisions based on my own preferences.
ELIAS: Yes. I am acknowledging of you also in this.
LAURA: Well, see, itís only been 15 minutes and I hardly have a thing to talk about! I think I want to move into the area of mass events. This is an area that Iím very interested in, how we are creating collectively mass events.
ELIAS: Very well.
LAURA: I am interested in politics and Iím interested in, as an individual, what my role has been in choosing what I think to be a very repressive, backward, narrow-minded, violent and secretive government thatís governing our country right now. Iíll tell you a theory that I have.
ELIAS: Very well.
LAURA: Weíre choosing this now, this federal government which shows us our belief systems in extreme, so that we can see it clearly and maybe make different choices.
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct. And also recognize there are no accidents.
In this, what you are creating in association with mass events and in association with your societies, your governments, is being presented in a manner in which you individually may clearly begin to identify these truths and recognize, each of you, what your truths are, which is allowing you a tremendous avenue to be addressing to all of your truths and genuinely moving into an expression of acceptance. But to be generating that action, you also must be identifying what your truths are, and in this, you identify them by expressing them and experiencing them. This is what this wave in consciousness is addressing to now.
LAURA: So we have an especially secretive and deceptive federal government at the time that we are examining truths...
LAURA: ...so that we can understand what is truth versus what just looks like truth on the surface.
ELIAS: In actuality, what you are examining, as I have been expressing recently, is not actual truth but your truths.
LAURA: As individuals?
ELIAS: Yes, and collectively. But as individuals more so, for as individuals you are what generate the collective. You are what creates the collective.
Now; in this, as I have identified recently, these truths that you are addressing to are the beliefs within the belief system of truth. Not that they are actual truths, but they are strongly expressed beliefs that have been set as absolutes. That is what each of you identifies as truth. But in this wave, what you are generating is an examination of your individual truths, once again not to be eliminating them, but to be recognizing what you identify individually as your individual truths, recognizing that they are not true but they are expressed beliefs Ė and they are strongly expressed beliefs.
Each of them are expressed in many different manners, and in those expressions, some of their expressions are associated with your preferences. This is another reason that you solidify them as absolutes and thusly they become your truths.
But there are also aspects of them, influences of them, that are limiting. In this movement of addressing to these truths, it allows you to genuinely move into an expression of acceptance and genuinely generate an understanding of not eliminating beliefs but recognizing which beliefs are expressed, and also recognizing that in the expression of acceptance of them, you choose how you shall be expressing different beliefs and how you shall implement them in association with creating your reality, knowing that they are your choices and your expressions and that although other individuals may incorporate similar expressions, your expressions are unique and individual to each of you. Therefore, they are not absolute.
Once you begin to recognize genuinely and generate a genuine understanding concerning these beliefs and those that you set as truths, and you genuinely express the acceptance of them, you shall offer yourselves the freedom to move within your individual preferences and opinions, but you shall not generate the judgment in association with differences. That is a tremendous movement in this shift in consciousness, which also is a tremendous expression of freedom.
LAURA: Yikes, yes. I mean, a world without judgment. Itís hard to imagine.
ELIAS: This is not to say that you are eliminating duplicity, either, for you are not, but...
LAURA: Isnít that one of our basic... I donít see how this world could exist without light and dark, up and down.
ELIAS: That is different. That is duality, which is also an element of the blueprint of the design of this physical dimension. You are correct, it is quite strongly expressed for it is the design of your physical reality. But duplicity is not duality. Duplicity is the belief system that expresses good and bad and right and wrong.
Now; that is a belief system also, and therefore it is not being eliminated either, but your association with it is changing. You continue to express in association with your preferences what you individually associate as good or bad or right or wrong, but what is changing in this shift is that the judgment is not expressed in association with difference. Therefore, what you deem to be good or bad or right or wrong, you recognize and accept is your expression, but another individual may express quite differently and that is accepted also. The judgment of the difference is what is being changed.
LAURA: I feel like Iíve experienced that in my day-to-day life to some degree.
ELIAS: Yes. Many, many, many individuals are beginning to recognize that they are actually shifting, and they are actually experiencing this.
LAURA: Iíve noticed that things that I would have been judgmental about before, so sure was right or wrong or whatever, itís more of an acceptance or kind of a gray area. Iím over here doing my thing, theyíre over there doing their thing, and itís all okay kind of feeling.
ELIAS: Correct, which is being expressed more and more throughout your physical reality. This is how each individual is affecting of the movement of the collective and the movement of your world.
LAURA: For example, my sister left her husband six months ago. She found out he was having multiple affairs with women, and in our society thatís wrong, correct? But what she and I have talked about is, from a wider point of view, and she agrees, itís not right or wrong, itís just his preference and how heís being. Her preference is that she doesnít want to be married to somebody who has that preference.
LAURA: Weíve talked a lot about that and it feels just more balanced that way than being so angry. Not that I havenít felt angry about certain ways heís been behaving to her or to the children, I have, then I realize it and move on. But for example, in our society that is just wrong, absolutely wrong, that he would be having these affairs, and she should hate him and judge him. I donít feel like she does and I donít feel like I am judging him about that. We see that as an expression of preferences rather than an issue of right and wrong.
ELIAS: Correct. Recognize that preferences are merely preferred beliefs, and each of you incorporates your own unique expression of that. Even in what you recognize as mass beliefs, as you have expressed within your society this is a mass expression that infidelity is wrong, but in this, each individual that contributes to that collective association experiences and expresses that belief slightly differently, for you are each unique.
In this, you continue to express your preferences but you recognize that it is no longer a matter of attempting to change or judge the choices and experiences of other individuals, but rather recognize what you are choosing, which is tremendously liberating, for what this eliminates is being a victim. You are not eliminating your beliefs; you are eliminating being victims.
LAURA: That has been a big aim of mine for the last number of years.
ELIAS: Which is also another redefining of terms in how you associate with them in relation to responsibility. The association with responsibility is shifting also, as being recognized as an expression of genuine freedom. For if you are expressing responsibility in association with self and your choices and that you do actually create all of your reality, you are not a victim and you incorporate the freedom to choose whatever you will.
LAURA: Back to our language, I just noticed how deeply imbedded victim beliefs are in our language, which makes it difficult, like I was saying earlier, to find ways to communicate without expressing victim associations.
ELIAS: But you are paying attention, you are recognizing more and more, and that is significant. (Elias chuckles)
LAURA: Well, this goes into another area that I think about and work on, the victim ideas. I really enjoy that process of seeing where Iím limiting my choices and my reality. Of course, money is an issue. I mean, itís not; weíre comfortable. Well, how about this, just for fun? I did notice in one transcript that somebody had asked you if in their script for life if being wealthy was something that was highly likely for them and you responded to that. So I would like to ask you if thatís in my script, if Iíve chosen a high likelihood of wealth.
ELIAS: No. (Laughs)
LAURA: Should I kind of keep going the way Iím going?
ELIAS: Yes. Within your directions and your choices and your pool of probabilities, I may express to you Ė not that it is an absolute, and not that you may not choose to move outside of your pool of probabilities, for individuals do, and you incorporate the choice to move in that direction if you wish Ė but in likelihood, no. The direction of your focus and in association with your movement in your intent, this is not what you would term to be a strong priority. You move in the direction of fascinating yourself with other expressions and not generating the type of movement that interests you enough to generate wealth.
LAURA: I can see that.
ELIAS: There are many other directions that are much more curious to you.
LAURA: Thatís true. Iím not even working for money right now, which is my choice. I created that and itís quite satisfying. So the way weíre choosing right now is that we will have enough money to build our new house and send our kids to whatever school or camps or whatever they want to go to, and weíll continue to be comfortable that way and not have to worry about bill paying, but we wonít have millions of dollars.
ELIAS: That is the likelihood.
LAURA: My husband has a dream but I think in one sense itís a family belief, because his family is fairly wealthy. But he hasnít really made the choices in his life to pursue things that would bring that to him, if you look at what heís actually doing.
ELIAS: Which is significant.
LAURA: Well, thatís good. I can kind of let go of some of that wondering energy there. I was wondering about it.
Letís talk about music and my music playing. I have felt blocked in my ability to express myself musically in certain ways and we have talked about that. I bought this flute Ė itís supposed to be a pretty good flute Ė about ten years ago, and Iíve taken it to a couple of different people to work on at various times. Iíve struggled with certain aspects of it and Iíve always thought it was me, that I was struggling with my body. Now Iím seeing the flute as an extension of me.
I took it to a third repair person, who found a significant problem with it that no one had found before, and he fixed the problem. It had a little hole in it and now it plays like itís never played before. I feel so happy and free with it; I play something and will actually kiss my flute. I am so happy with it now! I thought that was so interesting that after we had talked about music and I brought my awareness to that, feeling comfortable and what is the essence of what I want to feel when Iím playing music, which is freedom, ease and joy, that my instrument got changed. Now I feel that I can express that more freely and easily.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Quite creative! I offer to you my congratulations!
LAURA: Did I create there a concrete experience? I guess Iím not understanding why I needed to go through the repair of the hole experience, but I did think it was interesting.
ELIAS: To offer yourself physical imagery that you may actually see in physical manifestation, as a validation and as a reflection of your own movement within yourself, generating the recognition of the association between the outside manifestation and the inside movement.
LAURA: That makes sense.
ELIAS: This is what you do. (Laughs)
LAURA: Creating our own living movie.
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes!
LAURA: My sister, who lives next door, likes to do one of those talking boards. Itís like a ouija board but itís sort of an advanced version, more colorful and playful, I guess. I used to really want to do it with her for my own energy, and I understand Iím choosing to do it with her now. Iím not as intrigued by it in a certain way, but sheís going through all these changes and so Iím happy to do it with her.
Yesterday we had an experience where she asked a question and it told us some answers, and I said I just donít believe that at all, I just donít believe these answers. Then she asked for a different energy to come in and that energy said no, all those answers were wrong. I was just wondering, what are these energies that we are playing with?
ELIAS: I have offered information concerning this type of action.
Now; I may express to you, at times individuals do generate an interaction with other energies, with other essences.
Now; what you are generating is interactions with focus energies.
LAURA: Her focuses?
ELIAS: It may be of another essence. But they are specific energies, they are attention energies of focuses of essences that have disengaged and are occupying certain areas of consciousness. Generally speaking, these energies are within the area of consciousness which is expressed prior to transition.
Now; in this, there are some actions that you, as individuals continuing within physical focus, may generate in association with different focal points such as your board. The energy that you project out in relation to the focal point generates a type of stream, so to speak, of energy, which serves as a type of beacon for individuals that have not yet engaged nonphysical transition.
In that experience, the individual continues to generate an objective awareness and continues to generate the appearance of physical imagery, but they also are aware of communicating with other individuals in somewhat of a similar manner as they would were they to be continuing in physical focus; but in association with mass beliefs, they perhaps might generate a wonderment of themselves in whether their experience is real or not. Are you following thus far?
LAURA: I am.
ELIAS: For in their experience objectively, although they are disengaged, they are continuing to generate this objective awareness and experiences, and their energy gravitates to an openness which may be expressed by individuals that are continuing within physical focus.
Now; in their experience, generally speaking, what they generate is a creation in which they are engaging an interaction or a conversation in thought or what you term to be hearing voices, without an actual physical presence of another individual. Within your associations in psychological mass beliefs, the individual would be questioning whether they were creating lunacy, and at times within that experience subsequent to disengagement, there is some question of that also within the individual. Generally, they do not express in that manner, for there is some difference, which is recognizable to them, from actual physical reality and what they are creating in this state, so to speak, prior to nonphysical transition.
Now; they attempt to be generating this communication with you but they are not quite aware of how they are actually projecting their energy. Therefore, many times the interaction may be quite distorted, for what they are doing is communicating or speaking to the voice within their head, so to speak. The energy is being projected, but to be accurately projecting energy through layers of consciousness into your Regional Area 1 of your physical reality requires a directedness and what you may term to be an understanding of how to be manipulating energy intentionally through those layers of consciousness. These individuals do not incorporate an objective awareness of that. As they do continue to incorporate an objective awareness, they are not aware enough of their subjective awareness to be manipulating energy in that manner, and therefore there is considerable distortion and also what you term to be stronger or weaker signals.
LAURA: Iíll share this information with my sister. Sheís really interested in it and I think sometimes makes decisions based on it. I also was thinking maybe itís just reflecting, because it almost always is talking to her. Iím thinking it may be reflecting her ideas and her beliefs, what she wants, and that she wants to see whatís going on with her in what she might term to be a more objective manner.
ELIAS: Correct. You are quite correct.
LAURA: Like should I keep hanging out with this guy or that guy Ė it gives her an answer, but maybe itís telling her what sheís really thinking or feeling.
ELIAS: Correct. You are quite correct, for there are no accidents.
LAURA: Itís valuable for her in that way, in that she gets to see that is what sheís thinking. Sheíll hide it from herself even though Iíll say this is what youíre saying. You want to be a friend with this guy and romantic with that guy, thatís what youíre saying. She doesnít trust that, but then she gets it on the board and she says okay, thatís what I should do. (Elias laughs) Itís kind of funny. Sheíll say it in words, but she wonít listen to herself that way...
ELIAS: It is not unusual.
LAURA: ...or trust it until the board says it.
ELIAS: As I have stated, each individual offers themselves their validation in their unique manner.
LAURA: Yes, she does. And Iím not putting her down. I think itís an effective way for her to do that. I just have noticed that thatís what happens.
ELIAS: Correct. Just as there are no accidents in all of the physical individuals that you draw yourselves to and the interactions that you create, this is expressed in association with nonphysical individuals also and what you draw to yourselves in those interactions. They are all purposeful and none of which are generated as an accident.
LAURA: Iím not criticizing it, I was just curious...
ELIAS: I am quite aware.
LAURA: I use tools myself. I ask questions occasionally and then I take it in that spirit, that Iím telling myself though the board what Iím really thinking or feeling about an issue.
LAURA: I have another question. My son, you had verified at one point that he was a political type. I looked it up on the Internet and I guess Iím not clear. How does political manifest specifically with my son? What does that look like? I understand thought and I understand emotional, being emotional myself, but Iím not quite clear on political.
ELIAS: It may be termed to be between thought and emotional Ė more closely associated with thought than emotional, but generating both. Individuals that are politically focused generate more of a similarity in the manner in which they process information to a thought-focused individual, but they do also incorporate some elements that are similar to an emotionally focused individual. It is a manner in which you each process information, and these individuals are a type of combination, so to speak, of the thought and the emotional.
They do generate more of a trust of their intuition than a thought-focused individual generally does naturally. Not that thought-focused individuals may not become aware and allow themselves to be trusting their expressions of intuition, but generally thought-focused individuals pay less attention to intuitional communications. They pay closer attention to sensing. The political-focused individual pays attention to both.
LAURA: My husband is a thought focus and my son is political. They are both Sumari/Ilda/common, so I can see the difference in how they process information. I must really like that personality type to be hanging out with. I do!
Then my daughter, I get to really learn about staying in my own now and not necessarily focusing on her criticisms of me!
ELIAS: And generating your challenge!
LAURA: (Laughs) Well, not too much. We either get along well or Iím just like I have to get away from you now. But thatís okay. I appreciate that Iíve generated that choice.
ELIAS: Another example of your creating somewhat of your spice. (Laughs)
LAURA: She is quite spicy to me! Other people say sheís so mellow and so sweet and so loving, and Iím like yeah, sometimes. She gets to express all those other things with me.
So the time is up already, and I very much appreciate all that you give me.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend. I shall continue to be expressing my energy with you in acknowledgment and validation and a supportiveness in congratulations. Ha ha ha!
LAURA: I enjoy that very much.
ELIAS: And perhaps a slight nudge to be incorporating more playfulness, although I am acknowledging of you that you are generating that action more and more and more. (Laughs)
LAURA: I get that. I know what you mean.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend. I offer to you, as always, tremendous affection and great lovingness. To you, au revoir.
LAURA: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 10:12 AM.
