<  Session 1525 (Private/Phone)  >

ďIncorporating Eliasí Helpful EnergyĒ

ďAspects of Control BeliefsĒ

ďAppreciation of the ProcessĒ


Participants: Mary (Michael) and Daryl (Ashrah).

(Eliasí arrival time is 16 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

DARYL: Bon jour!

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Bon jour!

DARYL: I was wondering, I got this impression a while ago, before the session, that youíre my brother in a focus in France.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Am I your sister or your brother?

ELIAS: Sister.

DARYL: So itís one I donít know about yet, because I only know a couple guys in France. (Elias chuckles) As usual, I have a bunch of little questions to ask you about, focuses and stuff.

ELIAS: Very well.

DARYL: The first one is I got the name Alesque Verrini, and I think thatís a focus of mine.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Is that Alesque with a Q or a C?

ELIAS: Q.

DARYL: I was wondering if that was my focus in 1600s Italy.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that a female?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: So sheís the one that is with my current landlords, with the restaurant?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Great. A while back I got the name Cicero, and sometime after that I got Thomas or Tomas, that I think was connected to the Cicero. Do I have a focus named Tomas Cicero?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that an Italian one also?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that a past focus?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: I have a lot of 11:11 translations of tone that I want to check out with you. Some of them I think are me and some of them I think are other people, though Iím not necessarily sure. The first one is Matteus, and I think thatís me.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Another one, Lomegan, and I think thatís me.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Brindel, and Iím not sure if thatís me.

ELIAS: No.

DARYL: Thatís not?

ELIAS: No.

DARYL: Do you want to say who it is?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) And shall you offer an impression?

DARYL: Nanaiis?

ELIAS: No...

DARYL: I donít know. Iíve been talking to Myiisha about this, but that wasnít the one we thought was her.

ELIAS: Oona.

DARYL: I didnít think Oona. The next one is Rasparian or Raspurian, Iím not sure which, and I thought that that was Oona.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Is it more of an ďayĒ sound, Rasparian, or Raspurian?

ELIAS: The latter.

DARYL: Next one is Rutherd, and I thought that was a focus of Ruther.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: And Amiisha, that I think is Myiisha.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Is that more of an AH-mee-shah or more ah-MEE-shah?

ELIAS: The first.

DARYL: I think Tomkin has one there as Alazar?

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: And Razielle, with a Z, and Iím not sure who that is.

ELIAS: That would be of Nanaiis.

DARYL: The last one is Mumber, and I think that thatís Milde.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: I wanted to check Ė theyíre aware that weíre undergoing a shift of some sort?

ELIAS: Somewhat. Not the type of awareness that you incorporate, but there is somewhat of an awareness of some type of occurrence.

DARYL: And that we exist? They know that weíre them?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: With the Alterversity, I wanted to check a number of impressions with you, too. Does Thelma have a focus named Hannah there?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: And Luera, does she have a focus named Cassidy?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that a male?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: And Allard, a focus named Sydney whoís female?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Last time I asked you about a focus of Soloron named Raswana, which you confirmed. My impression was that he was a male and that he was from Africa, probably Nigeria. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Myranda had an impression that my focus at the Alterversity, Rebecca, knows someone named Edward Marquis and that he is a focus of either Michael or Lawrence.

ELIAS: Correct, Lawrence.

DARYL: Last time I asked for information on Alien. I forgot to ask you, is her impression that her musical tone would translate as the A major chord, is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Would that be more of a focus tone or an essence tone?

ELIAS: Essence.

DARYL: I had an impression that she has a focus who knows Rudolph Steiner.

ELIAS: Acquaintance.

DARYL: But not a real relationship?

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: With observing essences, I donít know if this is off the wall or what, but I had the thought last night that I observe Oscar Wilde.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that lifelong?

ELIAS: Partial.

DARYL: What part?

ELIAS: Adult.

DARYL: I wanted to know also if Iím observing essence of Gustav Klimpt.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: And Sylvia Plath? I thought she might be a counterpart.

ELIAS: That is counterpart.

DARYL: Ellen DeGeneres, observing?

ELIAS: Counterpart.

DARYL: This is another one that Iíll share. Am I observing essence of Myrandaís focus Anjuli?

ELIAS: Counterpart.

DARYL: My TV has been doing things with reddish-orange and also turned itself off, and I thought it was breaking. Then it occurred to me it was Patel, and it stopped doing that. Was that Patel?

ELIAS: Yes. (Grins)

DARYL: Boy, he really likes to move around and do different things!

ELIAS: (Laughs) Quite mischievous!

DARYL: He is, and variable Ė you never know where heís going to pop up! (Elias laughs)

Last time, in the last session, we discussed that I was accomplishing a certain kind of exposure with you during the session. I felt like Iíve done that on occasions since the session, and I also felt like it started again today before the session.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Is there anything else for me to know about that that would be helpful?

ELIAS: Not necessarily; merely to continue to proceed in the manner in which you are allowing yourself already.

DARYL: Youíve talked a lot about your energy being around us and youíre offering this energy. I feel you all the time and Iíve been aware of your support, and Iíve always thought of it like I had a friend there in terms of someone supporting me. But when I was transcribing a tape a few weeks ago and you were talking to someone about it, I suddenly got the idea that instead of you just being there and supporting me, that I could literally take a chunk of your energy and insert it in the middle of what I was generating and change my experience at that moment. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

DARYL: I tried it a few times, and it seemed really amazing because then I would start generating a different reality and my attention moved.

ELIAS: Yes. This is an allowance of yourself to be incorporating that offering of energy that I am expressing and configuring it in a manner in which you may actually incorporate that energy to your benefit in actual creations and actual movement.

DARYL: Is it mostly a short-term thing like that?

ELIAS: It may be or it may not be. It is dependent upon your choice and how you choose to incorporate it.

DARYL: So I could do it in an ongoing manner if I wanted to?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: That came as such a surprise to me; it just never occurred to me. Is there anything else youíd like to say about that? That just kind of blew my mind.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) There are many configurations of energy, and they may be manipulated in many different manners. Remember that energy is quite real. It may not be a thing in terms of an object, but it is quite real and it does generate quite real things, in your terms.

In this, it is merely a matter of allowing yourself to incorporate more of a creativity in manipulating energy, and recognizing that as I express to any of you that I am offering you supportive and encouraging energy, that is not merely an expression of my presence but it is a genuine expression and projection of my energy that may be incorporated intermingled with your own energy, and therefore generate a strength in which you may enhance or turn your experiences.

If you are allowing yourself that openness and allowing yourself to incorporate your communication of imagination, you may be generating quite creative directions and avenues in which you may be addressing to any element that may be challenging to you in any moment.

DARYL: Thatís just incredible to me! (Elias chuckles) The little things Iíve used it for have had a very dramatic effect.

ELIAS: Quite! (Chuckles)

DARYL: It just never occurred to me for the five years youíve been around me until suddenly that day. It was always like this external thing, and then all of a sudden I just kind of switched on it. (Elias laughs) Did you prompt me on that?

ELIAS: Yes. (Both laugh)

DARYL: That just occurred to me because I was doing a tape. Iíve felt like I was having a session with you a lot of times when I transcribe, and it felt like that.

ELIAS: I am understanding.

DARYL: So you actually gave me a little something?

ELIAS: (Laughs) Perhaps a slight nudge.

DARYL: That is something Iíd definitely like to play around with with you in the future.

ELIAS: Very well!

DARYL: I know that it would be really helpful to me in terms of the acceptance of your energy. That opens up a whole new...

ELIAS: Yes, and recognizing the power of energy and how you may manipulate it in powerful manners to create what you want.

DARYL: I donít know if this is the right way to even think about it, but Iíve wondered, in terms of energy and attention, if your attention is in the energy thatís around me.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Thatís an area where Iím a little confused about how that works, attention and energy. (Elias laughs) Itís interesting to me.

The last time we talked about my belief that I need to control things objectively and how that was impacting on my breathing. Iíve been examining a lot of my beliefs around that. Also, Iím kind of changing the times when Iím breathing where Iím really trying to objectively control it, like I sit there and I change it, and Iíve been doing stuff with that.

I find that Iím kind of muddy in the area of objective control versus the concept of objectively choosing. I think thereís times when I am objectively choosing through automatic responses, like to choose with the breathing, but I donít necessarily catch myself doing it because itís automatic. But sometimes lately I have this suspicion that Iíve just done it.

ELIAS: I am understanding, which is allowing you to move closer to identifying automatic responses and being aware of what those automatic responses are, and what motivates them or what triggers them, in a manner of speaking Ė which is significant, Ashrah, for that allows you in that awareness to objectively intentionally choose.

DARYL: So I am objectively choosing, I just donít realize it?

ELIAS: Yes, but that is the power of automatic responses. Although they are an objective choice, generally speaking individuals are not noticing for they are not paying attention to those automatic responses.

DARYL: Also, if itís something I consider unpleasant... The idea that Iím objectively choosing the breathing stuff is not something I like!

ELIAS: I am understanding.

DARYL: In terms of my beliefs about controlling objectively and the objective choice thing, the only thing Iíve really noticed is that when Iím trying to control, I feel like Iím actually projecting that desire to control outward. Can you speak somewhat to the difference between wanting to control objectively, and allowing and having objective choice, as opposed to control?

ELIAS: Let me express to you that although I identified the belief of control, the point was more the influences of that belief of control and that the influences of a lack of control are what are significant in relation to your creations Ė not that you are as much attempting to be controlling, but that your experience is that you are lacking control Ė and therefore if you are lacking control, that generates significant influences for it denies you the perception of choice.

DARYL: Am I noticing the objective choice and then my automatic response is more in response to that feeling of lack of control?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: So Iím showing myself that I do... Control isnít a good word for it.

ELIAS: But it is adequate in this situation, and you understand what I am expressing to you, that in these time frameworks in which you are experiencing what you perceive to be a lack of control, that is the influence that is being expressed and is contributing to your lack of objective choice to choose differently. For if you are not expressing the control, some other element or energy is Ė that is the automatic association Ė and if some other element or expression is generating the control, it is denying you choice, and that is significant. For it is all you, but with certain influences of certain beliefs, it becomes an automatic association as though it were not you, and that is what denies you choice.

DARYL: Iíve also been, especially in the past week or so, giving myself lots of experiences with power and how I deny my power, and I assume that thatís all tied in with this also.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: I get the feeling Iím getting ready to take control here of my power!

ELIAS: (Laughs) And I shall be acknowledging of you as you engage that action! Ha ha ha!

DARYL: Thatís exciting! Do you have anything more you want to add in that area?

ELIAS: Merely to continue to be noticing, for this is a tremendous tool that you incorporate, and to recognize that you may incorporate power in many, many, many different directions, not to automatically move in a direction of becoming fearful of your own power, for it may be manipulated in many beneficial manners.

DARYL: I know Shift Assist has been a revelation to me in that regard. (1)

ELIAS: I am aware.

DARYL: Another thing I want to talk to you about is communication with self. I know the avenues of communication and Iím aware that Iím giving myself information all the time, but my problem is being able to translate it. Even though Iím aware of it, I canít seem to understand what Iím telling myself.

At the same time, Iíve had an experience, I think about three times, where some part of me kind of came forward and literally verbally explained everything to me quite clearly, and I obviously knew exactly what I was telling myself. From something Iíve read since then, I think that that is an aspect of me who actually understands what was going on, and I was allowing that aspect to come forward and tell me.

ELIAS: Yes, I am understanding.

DARYL: So thatís whatís going on when that happens?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: (Sighs) I do have some the things that Iím not understanding. I donít know how to approach this. I want to open up communication with myself more.

ELIAS: And what is your concern?

DARYL: Iím aware that Iím giving myself some sort of communication, but I still donít understand what Iím saying. For instance, one of the things is that even if Iím not having much breathing stuff going on, every Wednesday when I clean my birds I have a breathing thing that lasts while Iím doing that and cleaning the apartment. I know I have a preference not to clean, but other than that I donít know why thatís happening. I donít know what Iím not getting. It happens over and over. I keep on trying to understand it, and I donít understand it.

ELIAS: First of all, I may suggest to you that you allow yourself to receive your communications and not always attach a tremendous analyzation to them. For in this type of action of translating and evaluating your communications that you offer to yourselves, many times the communication is simple and is not as complicated as you seek for an answer. In this, you may be generating repeated actions or responses to yourself in your communications with yourself and they may be expressing the same communication, and it may not necessarily be a complicated communication.

As in your example that you incorporate this routine of cleaning in specific time frameworks and in that routine you also routinely generate a type of physical reaction, so to speak, which you recognize as a communication, the communication is more simple than you are attempting to recognize. You are attempting to generate a more complicated communication and not accepting the simplicity of the communication, which is merely associated with your likes and dislikes, which is also associated with your preferences. These are actions that you choose to be incorporating, for you recognize that you incorporate an expressed belief concerning cleanliness to an extent...

DARYL: And not a very high extent, either! (Both laugh)

ELIAS: Therefore, you incorporate some actions associated with cleaning, but regardless of whether you generate the action in conjunction with your belief, this is not to say that you necessarily LIKE that action. Therefore, you generate a simple communication to yourself as consistently and as routinely as you incorporate the action.

DARYL: I know that I donít like cleaning and I know that Iím choosing what I consider beliefs that I can deal with, because I also donít like stepping on bird seed, for instance.

ELIAS: I am understanding.

DARYL: Why do I keep doing this even though I understand what Iím telling myself? Why do I keep doing it, then?

ELIAS: For you are presenting to yourself this communication acknowledging that you do not like this action. But in your terms, your question has been what you are missing in this communication that continues to generate it so consistently. In that missing piece, so to speak, you are expressing to yourself the opportunity to view what you are actually doing and how you may perceive this differently and therefore not incorporate the same perception that it is a chore.

You appreciate the outcome. Therefore, you are motivated to move with the belief that you should be cleaning in certain manners, for you appreciate the outcome that you offer to yourself; therefore, you appreciate the payoff that you offer to yourself. What you are expressing to yourself is a prompting to alter your perception concerning the action, therefore allowing yourself to generate the action and appreciate that, not merely the outcome.

DARYL: To appreciate the action of self?

ELIAS: To appreciate the action of the cleaning.

DARYL: In and of itself, as opposed to the outcome of it?

ELIAS: Right.

DARYL: Just as an experience?

ELIAS: Correct, and that this experience generates an outcome that you appreciate. If the experience generates an outcome that you appreciate, you may also appreciate the process that creates the outcome. If the process is a game, it is more appreciated; it is playful. If the process is a chore, it is work.

DARYL: I guess youíre saying that I am appreciating it for the outcome rather than for the act of cleaning itself?

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: If I just take it that Iím doing this so that I get the outcome I want, then Iíll stop fighting with myself?

ELIAS: If you allow yourself to incorporate a playfulness in the action of the cleaning, or if you express some other perception of this action of cleaning, one that you assess as positive, you may be appreciating the action itself, not merely the outcome. You shall continue to appreciate the outcome, but the process shall be appreciated also and therefore it shall be unnecessary for you to be expressing manifestations of fighting with yourself.

DARYL: This would apply to something like cooking also?

ELIAS: Correct. Any action that you view to be a chore or work, if you choose to continue to express it in association with your beliefs but you are uncomfortable in the expression of it, the manner in which you may alter that reality is to alter your perception and to incorporate the action in a manner that you allow yourself to appreciate it.

DARYL: Thatís certainly something to play around with!

ELIAS: (Chuckles) As an example, an individual may dislike the action of cleaning their dishware but they may appreciate the outcome of clean dishware.

Now; the action of cleaning the dishware may be perceived as a chore, and therefore the individual may generate a consistent and repeated response to it and generate fighting with themselves. Whereas, if that action is incorporated with the perception that it offers the individual a time framework of concentration, almost as a meditation, the perception is different, and the process is appreciated along with the outcome.

DARYL: Thatís kind of like the Sufi attitude towards work, I believe.

ELIAS: Similar.

DARYL: Iím having some trouble with the phone. I guess I donít want to get absolutely everything youíre saying! (Both laugh) But I think Iím getting the main part.

I get some stuff a lot of times when Iím taking a shower, and I wonder if that had to do with exposure because of the way my place is set up. Is that also part of the same thing, about what I have to do to get clean?

ELIAS: Partially, and it also is partially associated with exposure.

DARYL: Itís kind of a peculiar setup that Iím in, being outside of the apartment! (Elias laughs) But I think my whole living situation is geared to give me more exposure.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Another one of the communications Iím not getting is coughing. Sometimes I start coughing when Iím almost asleep. A lot of times when Iím up, I all of a sudden feel a tickle in my throat and start coughing, or Iím eating or drinking something and I inhale it and then I get something in my throat and start coughing. Iím not sure if those ways of coughing are related or if theyíre different messages, but Iím not really understanding any of that.

ELIAS: I may express to you, for the most part these are actions that you incorporate in time frameworks in which your attention is wandering.

DARYL: My attention is wandering from myself?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Man, I used to just get a little something in my throat; that was a lot nicer! Is this like a stepped up signal?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking.

DARYL: When Iím doing it when Iím almost asleep, that isnít my attention then, is it?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Iím not really conscious very much.

ELIAS: I am understanding, but that is another example of your attention wandering and relaxing into not paying attention objectively. This is the reason that you incorporate that action in that time framework, to offer you a clearer message, for that is a clearer time framework that you may identify that your attention IS wandering. That is not a bad expression. You merely incorporate the action to support the other time frameworks in which you incorporate that action.

DARYL: I really had it separate. It seems like Iím just on the brink of sleep and Iím not really even aware of it.

ELIAS: Correct, which is what I am expressing to you. The reason that you incorporate this action in that time framework is not to generate focusing your attention; it is to emphasize the point that you have been expressing to yourself in this communication. In a manner of speaking, it is another avenue in which you are generating a type of example to yourself.

You are generating the example by incorporating the action of coughing within a time framework of which your attention is naturally defocused. Therefore, that is offering you an actual example of your attention, which is associating with the other time frameworks.

In a manner of speaking, what you are expressing to yourself is you are moving into your sleep state and you begin coughing. You are expressing to yourself, ďThis state now, Ashrah, is what you do in other time frameworks. What you are doing in this moment, defocusing your attention and allowing it to wander, so to speak, is what you do in other time frameworks. I am generating the same action to show you that this is the type of action that you are incorporating within waking state in different time frameworks.Ē Are you understanding now?

DARYL: Yes, I am. Iím also understanding more about how I communicate with myself, which is why I wanted to talk to you about this. Itís just really kind of opening me up in terms of what Iím doing.

ELIAS: I am understanding.

DARYL: Another example of this is when I create sudden heat, which Iíve done for a number of years. Iíve talked to you as what Iím telling myself has changed, and I think it changed again because it feels different. Now Iím getting a big part of it on my face, which I never had before, which makes me think that it has to do with exposure, but Iím not sure.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: The last time we talked about it, it had to do with feeling my power, but this is more...

ELIAS: That is an element, but it is also strongly associated with exposure.

DARYL: Is it also associated with feeling like Iím exposing some more of my duplicity of myself, like how I feel about myself?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Is that basically the communication going on there, or again, am I missing some part of it?

ELIAS: This is associated with exposure of yourself to yourself, and how that intertwines with your freedom and your strength, and that without allowing yourself to be exposed, you deny your expression of power and freedom.

DARYL: Thatís interesting, because Iíve given myself that message in other ways recently Ė verbal ways, from other people telling me.

ELIAS: I am understanding.

DARYL: I take it that normally when Iím communicating to myself, I am doing it in more than one way at the same time, like Iím saying it in different ways?

ELIAS: Yes. This is not unusual, and this is what I have expressed previously many times. The objective imagery is abstract. Therefore, you may be addressing to one subject and objectively you shall image that to yourself in many different manners.

DARYL: I could be doing it myself with the heat and Oona could call me up and tell me it directly, and I could see it in a movie or hear it in a song or see it on the street.

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Another area where Iím confused is the lump, which is continuing to kind of move around a little bit and also change size and consistency. Weíve talked some about what thatís communicating to me about unacceptable aspects of self and about sexuality. One of the things I donít get is about why the major part of it is so very hard. I feel like thereís a communication there that Iím not getting.

ELIAS: And do you incorporate an impression?

DARYL: Maybe that Iím too hard on myself?

ELIAS: Partially that you do not generate a gentleness with yourself, and partially that you view manipulating certain physical manifestations as difficult or hard.

DARYL: Could you give me an example of the physical manifestations?

ELIAS: Any of your physical manifestations: breathing, coughing...

DARYL: So any body functions?

ELIAS: Correct, that the manipulation of energy concerning any of these physical manifestations you perceive to be difficult Ė which returns us to our beginning, associated with control or the lack of control and how that influences you, and how that influences your perception and denies you choice, which reinforces the association that it is difficult or hard to manipulate energy in the manner in which you want.

DARYL: Is one of the reasons that the lump is changing is to show me that I do have the ability to affect it?

ELIAS: Yes.

DARYL: Are there other messages or communications involved with the lump that Iím not getting, outside of what weíve discussed already?

ELIAS: Not presently.

DARYL: We discussed the landscape exercise and I also transcribed a tape regarding that. (2) What struck me in the transcription Ė and maybe you were assisting that again, I donít know Ė was you talked about that when we do the landscape thing and weíre doing the visualization, weíre dealing with imagery that is basically the natural expression of the objective. That kind of opened up a question in me. If Iím doing the landscape exercise, am I literally trying to communicate from my objective to the subjective, as opposed to what Iím doing with emotion, the other way?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking. You may view it in this manner.

DARYL: What would be another way to view it?

ELIAS: It is a type of communication to the subjective, but it is also more of an allowance of the objective awareness to be moving in a free expression in conjunction with the subjective and intentionally orchestrating that Ė rather than generating automatic objective imagery in many different abstract expressions, generating more of a flexibility of the objective awareness to be moving with the subjective awareness in directing the physical body consciousness.

Generally speaking, although it is not a rule, the objective awareness does not incorporate tremendous interaction in directing the physical body consciousness. It may and it can, but generally speaking it does not. The subjective awareness directs the physical body consciousness, but the inner landscape is a manner or a method in which you may incorporate the objective awareness to be participating in that directing of the physical body consciousness. Are you understanding?

DARYL: Yes. We have a few minutes left, and since I have a few minutes, we are having the Darlings war number two. (3)

ELIAS: Ah, you are generating a war?

DARYL: Yes, once again! (Elias laughs) Great activity and conflict and comings and goings.

ELIAS: How interesting! (Chuckles)

DARYL: We previously discussed our first war and you talked to us about the truth wave and stuff, which I feel is very involved in this. Also, for my part, Iím getting a lot out of it regarding beliefs about power and what is appropriate and inappropriate behavior. (Elias chuckles) Lots and lots of stuff going on! I donít know if you can do this, but is there any short thing that you would offer to the Darlings about this at this time, like just a sentence or two?

ELIAS: I may express to you all to be paying attention to yourselves and move cautiously in your expressions of shoulds and should-nots, and also to generate caution in expressing blame, but conversely to incorporate caution and noticing in association with your own choices individually and your own expressions, and whether you are actually expressing a responsibility for yourselves.

I am aware of a tremendous polarization which is occurring, which I shall be addressing to in what you term to be near futurely. In this time framework I express caution to many of you, for there are individuals that are not expressing responsibility for themselves and their choices and their behaviors, and moving into an expression of pushing their responsibility of self to other individuals.

As I express to any of you in many, many, many situations that choices are choices and that it matters not, I am not expressing to you that it does not matter. There IS a difference, which I have expressed previously. There are many expressions that matter. In actuality, ALL of your expressions matter; ALL that you do matters. The expression of ďit matters notĒ is directed to the recognition that choices are choices and that any choice is merely a choice, and that it is not necessary to be expressing judgment of one choice being better than another choice. That is not to say that your expressions do not matter, for they do.

Being responsible for self is tremendous, and being responsible for self is what generates the natural action of essence to not be intrusive.

DARYL: Iím taping this so I can transcribe that and get it out.

ELIAS: Very well.

DARYL: I think all of us would benefit from a little reflection and noticing.

ELIAS: I am agreeing. (Chuckles) Paying attention to self is not an action that is intended to be to the exclusion of all other consciousness, for YOU ARE all other consciousness.

DARYL: So whatever weíre doing, weíre doing it to ourselves?

ELIAS: Correct. If you perceive that you have been hurtful to another individual and you perceive that you must be expressing an apology to another individual, you have expressed the offense to yourself.

DARYL: How about if you donít feel like you owe an apology?

ELIAS: That is an acknowledgment.

DARYL: An acknowledgment that you havenít been offensive to self?

ELIAS: Yes. But let me express to you, remember how frequently I express to many of you to be expressing gentleness with yourselves. If you are reflecting a lack of gentleness in your reality and in other individuals or concerning other individuals, you may assure yourself that you are not expressing it with yourself either.

DARYL: Thatís really interesting regarding this.

ELIAS: Perhaps reflection would be beneficial. (Chuckles) Unless you choose to continue with your wars, which may be interesting also!

DARYL: Yes. I donít know whatís going to happen! I find it very interesting that the day of the first Darlings war I had a session with you, and now here I am again with a session when itís actually occurring. (Elias laughs) I appreciate that on my part, for my own benefit.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well!

DARYL: Itís time to say au revoir for now. I will be playing with you and your energy and seeing some more of the possibilities with that.

ELIAS: Very well. I shall be participating, and I shall be anticipating our next meeting.

DARYL: Great.

ELIAS: To you as always, Ashrah, in tremendous affection and great fondness, au revoir.

DARYL: Au revoir.

(1) Darylís concept of ďShift AssistĒ is discussed in session 1508, February 06, 2004.

(2) The Inner Landscape Exercise, as applied to physical ailments, from session 228, October 18, 1997 (there are other uses for the Inner Landscape Exercise also in that same session):

ďAn example: You hold a physical feeling; an ailment. In this, you may look to this ailment; the affected area of your physical body; (to Letty) your asthma. You may look to the actual organs which are affected. In this, you shrink yourself into yourself, create a tiny little you, and place it inside of you. Look to the physical form and create an inner landscape. We shall use a landscape of a tree-lined meadow. In this landscape, as you Ė being this tiny little you Ė move through the landscape, you may view each element within this landscape Ė each flower, each blade of grass, each tree Ė as an element of you and the physical ailment. As you move through this landscape, you may alter the landscape. You may rearrange the landscape. You may place your trees in different areas; and as you move objects within your landscape, you also alter actions within your intent within your physical form, for you are altering your action. You may also allow yourselves clues. As you view new flowers springing up within your landscape, you may also interpret this as new elements developing within the landscape that is your ailment. As you view certain elements disappearing within your landscape, you also may interpret this as elements and aspects of your ailment disappearing. As you choose to erase elements from your landscape, you may also offer to yourself the acknowledgment that you are beginning to actively uncreate the ailment.Ē
