ďSpeaking in TonguesĒ
ďInterpreting Physical Body ManifestationsĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Mysty (Michella).
Elias arrives at 6:07 AM. (Arrival time is 15 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
MYSTY: Good morning.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) And what have you been creating?
MYSTY: Four postponements! I donít understand why that happened!
ELIAS: (Laughs) For you were not settled yet.
MYSTY: I would like some information on the child that was born on my birthday. His name is Avery.
ELIAS: And what information are you seeking?
MYSTY: Name, family, alignment, shared focuses.
ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Bennet, B-E-N-N-E-T (BEN net). Essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Ilda; shared focuses, 21.
MYSTY: Letís see... Iím having trouble reading my own writing, because I write down these questions as time goes along. (Elias laughs) Number of focuses within this present timeframe for myself. Do I have other people around?
ELIAS: Yes, five.
MYSTY: In close proximity?
MYSTY: Am I a final focus?
MYSTY: How do I get impressions of other focuses? I was reading the material, and it says pay attention to myself and what Iím doing.
ELIAS: That may be a method in which you may offer yourself information of other focuses, but that may be confusing. It may be much easier for you to access information concerning other focuses in dream state or in visualizations.
MYSTY: I had a question about my dream state. I do dream; I know that I dream. When I wake up, sometimes I have some memory of it. People have suggested that I write everything down when I get up, but I donít. I donít know why I canít start doing that. But it seems like I just canít remember the content of the dreams, anyway.
ELIAS: I may express to you, in actuality it matters not, for dream imagery is an objective translation of subjective action. In this, as the objective and the subjective are continuously in harmony, whatever you are engaging in dream activity you are also expressing in some manner in waking state in objective imagery.
Now; if you want to be recalling the objective translation or the imagery of dreams, you may incorporate altering your sleep patterns. This may allow you to engage your objective awareness within the time period of your sleep state, which is what generates the imagery of the dreams.
MYSTY: When you say ďalter sleep patterns,Ē does that mean going to bed at a different time or setting an alarm to wake up at a certain time? I donít quite understand what I should alter.
ELIAS: Yes. You may change the times in which you engage this action of sleep, or engage a time framework within the day Ė incorporate a nap Ė and that shall produce an easier expression of generating the imagery of dreams and allow you a clearer recall of the dream imagery. Or you may, within your night hours, change the times in which you engage sleep.
MYSTY: My next question is thought, emotional, religious and political Ė I feel that Iím a religious focus.
MYSTY: I feel my intent, overall, is caregiver. Iím always helping other people.
ELIAS: This is a direction that you engage, and it is an avenue within your intent. But a clearer identification of your intent would be the exploration of change.
MYSTY: Thatís a lot to think about! (Elias laughs) Thank you for that.
My next question is about my water phobia. When I was a child, I almost drowned and now I still donít like to be under the water. I had some IV drug abuse in my family, and I have a needle phobia. At these times I feel out of control. I donít know how to... I mean, Iím almost 50 years old and I have these things bothering me now, still.
ELIAS: I may express to you, it may be helpful to you to be investigating another focus in which you did engage the action of drowning. Many times allowing yourself to connect with another focus which you are drawing energy from in conjunction with experiences that you have created in this focus is helpful in alleviating the fear.
Now; as to the needles, that is more in association with your beliefs and the judgments that you express in relation to certain behaviors and certain choices. In addressing to those beliefs, and allowing yourself to recognize that you incorporate certain preferences and that is acceptable, but also recognizing that other individuals may incorporate very different choices and behaviors, that is not to say that they are wrong.
MYSTY: My next question is about the church I belonged to a while ago, like 15 years ago. It was what they call a Pentecostal or holiness church, where a spirit or whatever takes over your body and speaks through you and all this. I left the church because I didnít understand or know what and who and why and how all that worked. No one could really explain it to me. Itís probably a long-winded answer to that question.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Let me express to you, many of the experiences that are generated in these types of congregations are very tied to the beliefs of the individuals participating. In this, I may identify that many of the individuals that express what you term to be speaking in tongues, what they are actually engaging is an allowance of themselves to move into what you define as an altered state.
Now; they are, generally speaking, not necessarily engaging an action of an energy exchange. They are not interacting with what you identify or believe to be spirits. What they are tapping into are other aspects of themselves. Their belief is that they are channeling the language of spirits or angels, but in actuality they are merely tapping into other areas, other aspects of themselves, and allowing themselves to experience and express in other types of languages.
Now; these may not necessarily be languages associated with any specific culture within your physical dimension. They may be tones that are being translated into some form of language within your dimension that may be associated with other focuses in other dimensions, or it may be a type of invented language that is a translation of some other aspect of themselves. But they are not actually, for the most part, interacting with other essences.
MYSTY: I wanted to ask you if youíre going have a book, like you can go to the bookstore and buy a book by Elias. I know you have the Forum digests on the Web, but I donít have access to the Web right now. I was just wondering if you were going to manifest a book.
ELIAS: (Laughs) I shall not be dictating a book.
Now; I may express to you that there are other individuals within your physical focus that express an interest in generating a book of the information that I express to all of you, but that would be the choice of individuals to generate that type of a manifestation. My direction is to be interactive with all of you in discussion with you, not to be dictating books.
MYSTY: I see. (Elias laughs)
My next is a couple of physical questions about my physical body. My left big toe joint, thereís pain there. Sometimes I wear a brace that will relieve it, and I try to wear flat shoes and things like that. But I canít figure out what the payoff would be for me to give myself this kind of dull pain all the time.
ELIAS: And what is your impression as to what this may be associated with?
MYSTY: Iím thinking itís arthritis, but arthritis is just something I would give myself, too.
ELIAS: This is correct.
Now; allow yourself to evaluate what you are doing Ė not necessarily in association with your foot, for that is representative of other movements. It is a physical manifestation that is associated with other expressions that you are creating.
MYSTY: I know Iím changing; I know that. But itís like a pressure, an annoyance. Thereís something thatís not rubbing together the right way or something.
Now; pay attention to those terms of pressure and annoyance, for this is what it is associated with Ė pressure that you are expressing with yourself in expectations, and annoyance in association with demands that you express with yourself and that you allow other individuals to express in relation to you.
MYSTY: Also, Iím widening my awareness, and at the same time Iím widening my physical body! I gained like 50 pounds almost overnight, it seemed. I thought it could be just middle age or something, a belief system along those lines. But I donít want to get any bigger. I canít afford to buy more clothes, to be frank.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you, widening your awareness does not necessarily generate a widening of your physical form! (Both laugh)
In this, you may also look to your beliefs in association with protection, for you have generated this weight in association with different actions and choices that you have engaged in a relative time framework. In this, as you express uncertainty in your movement and your direction and what you are actually doing, you also have chosen to express weight as a mechanism of protection. That has been generated in response to fear of what you have been creating.
MYSTY: ďBe careful what you ask for, you might get itĒ kind of a thing that Iím doing to myself?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. It is more associated with choices and actions that you have engaged in which you have become uncertain of trusting yourself, for many of your choices have not necessarily been expressed in comfort. Therefore, you generate this expression of weight in association with a protection of yourself.
Let me express to you, my friend, this is associated with lack, lacking. The perception of lacking has generated a response within you to compensate or protect yourself in that lacking. In a manner of speaking, it may be likened to the behavior of small creatures within your woods. They store provisions in association with an anticipation of a lack of supply within certain seasons.
In a similar manner, you have generated experiences that have weakened your trust of yourself in relation to your choices. Therefore, you have incorporated this weight as a type of reinforcement to yourself, that although you are doubting your trust in your choices, you may assure yourself that you shall survive for you have incorporated your storage of provisions.
Now; recognize that this is quite symbolic in the imagery that you have presented to yourself. But as you begin to trust yourself and realize that you may trust your choices, and [that] you have already generated interesting and informative experiences in extremes and have offered yourself information in association with your preferences and your beliefs, and [that] it is unnecessary to continue to be generating these uncomfortable experiences, in that, as you begin to trust yourself more, you also shall recognize that it is unnecessary to be incorporating this weight.
MYSTY: Iíd like to ask about my neighbor. I just moved into a little village for elderly disabled people. I want to use the time I have now to study and travel and things like that. My neighbor right across the hall from me seems like a very nice woman. She seems like me, but sheís 20 years older than me. Weíve done so many of the things over the years the same way. I just was wondering what kind of connection we are having.
ELIAS: You share other focuses with this individual, but you have drawn yourself to this individual now as a reinforcement and to be sharing experiences that shall be validating to you. This is associated with what we have been discussing in relation to your lack of trust of yourself. You are moving in a direction of reinforcing that trust and drawing individuals to you that shall also be reinforcing in supportiveness in energy with you.
MYSTY: Also, I have a significant other who to me is an interesting person, but I donít know if I should stay in an intimate relationship with this person. Iím just not sure.
ELIAS: What is your concern?
MYSTY: Heís kind of volatile, in a way.
ELIAS: And in some manners, you are also.
MYSTY: Yes. (Laughs)
ELIAS: Therefore, I may express to you, pay attention to yourself, allow yourself to identify what you want, and pay attention to what type of energy YOU are expressing outwardly, for this is what you reflect to yourself. You reflect quite strongly in intimate relationships.
MYSTY: That makes sense. That really does make sense over the years in my relationships, yes.
ELIAS: Therefore, evaluate what you want. If you want to be continuing in relationship with this individual, pay attention to the energy that YOU are expressing. Pay attention to what you are doing. In that, as you begin to recognize YOUR volatility, you may begin to alter your expressions, and that shall alter the interactions.
MYSTY: Iíll work on that. (Elias chuckles)
I want to go back to my little grandson that was born on my birthday. I feel really connected to him. I donít want to ask a crystal ball question, but are we going to stay very close over the years? As I get older, will he be a help to me?
ELIAS: This is your choice. It is dependent upon what direction you move in. There is a potential for that to be created, but it is dependent upon what you choose and what direction you engage and whether you implement that.
MYSTY: What I want to know, too, is when Iím around young people... Iíve been reading that they are consciously aware of more Ė like what weíre studying, they already know in part.
MYSTY: I just wonder, when they do things, when they show an advancement, is that...? I donít know how to put it into words. Does that offer a validation to me that the shift in consciousness is in effect, where I can recognize it in another person?
ELIAS: Yes. It also may be an example to you concerning the allowance of directing yourself and paying attention to your preferences.
MYSTY: Would you have any suggestions for me as you look at me, overall?
ELIAS: (Chuckles, then laughs with Mysty) I may suggest that you allow yourself to relax and appreciate what you are generating now, and perhaps not generate such excitement in your creativity to the point that you generate uncomfortableness! Ha ha ha!
Also, I may suggest to you to pay attention to your action in caring for, as you term it to be, other individuals. Remember, other individuals create their reality also, and their choices are being generated in association with their own value fulfillment. Value is not always expressed in what you identify as positive, and it is not your mission to be fixing or saving.
MYSTY: Thank you. That took a weight off my shoulders. It seems Iíve done that without even consciously thinking about it. Automatically, Iím always trying to fix something Ė youíre right.
ELIAS: Other individuals generate choices and expressions and behaviors in association with their value fulfillment. You may view them as less desirable, but that is not associated with your value fulfillment. In similarity, other individuals may view some experiences and choices that you have engaged as undesirable, but they have been beneficial in different manners to you.
MYSTY: I was thinking about getting another pet, a dog or a cat. In the surroundings that Iím in, they allow small animals. Could you recommend what type of animal?
ELIAS: What is your preference?
MYSTY: Itís half and half. But for me right now, Iíd have to say a cat because they use their litter box.
ELIAS: Allow yourself to express your preference and trust yourself.
MYSTY: Elias, I always enjoy conversing with you, and youíre always so helpful to me and Iím sure to other people. (Elias chuckles) My time isnít really up yet but I donít have any more questions, and Iím concerned about Mary because she had surgery on her throat. I didnít know about it, but I donít want to overdo her energy.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well. This is your choice. I may express to you encouragement, my friend. In this, genuinely allow yourself to be gentle with yourself. Offer the caring and nurturing to yourself that you so automatically offer to other individuals. In this, I shall continue to be interactive with you and offering you supportive energy from myself.
MYSTY: Thank you. And you come by to visit me, too!
ELIAS: And so I shall! I may express to you that I am available to you always.
MYSTY: Sometimes I do feel like I can hear your voice talking to me.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) I am present! Ha ha ha! I express to you, as always, my invitation to be objectively interactive again. I shall anticipate our next meeting, and I express to you my tremendous affection.
MYSTY: Thank you! Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome, my friend. To you, Michella, au revoir.
MYSTY: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 6:45 AM.
