“Focuses and Impressions”

“Essence Twins”

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Ioanna (Iona).

(Elias’ arrival time is 16 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good afternoon!

IOANNA: Hi, Elias! It’s nice to hear your voice again.

ELIAS: And you also!

IOANNA: I guess I just want to start off with a little statement.

ELIAS: Very well.

IOANNA: I’ve always enjoyed my sessions with you, but I was also worried at times how other people may perceive them as being maybe frivolous or silly at times. I just wanted to say that this is my third session, and I’m feeling much more relaxed and not so concerned about how others will perceive it. I think it’s more because I’m trusting myself and not worried about being wrong anymore.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) And I may express my congratulations to you.

IOANNA: Thank you. Could I start off with some impressions for people, their family stats?

ELIAS: Very well.

IOANNA: My essence twin’s friend, I wanted to know if she is Sumari belonging and Borledim aligned.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: There’s a new member of the Darlings named Margaret, and she wanted to know if she was Milumet belonging and either Sumari or Vold aligned.

ELIAS: Vold.

IOANNA: And is she soft and emotional?


IOANNA: Baruch had an impression for her essence name, but I can’t figure out how to say it so I’ll spell it. Maybe you can tell me how to say it. It’s R-I-A-T-H-E-A.

ELIAS: That would be a focus name.

IOANNA: Could you give me her essence name?

ELIAS: Essence name, Madison.

IOANNA: For Rrussell’s girlfriend, is she Sumafi belonging and Vold aligned, political and common?


IOANNA: Could I get an essence name for my friend Dom?

ELIAS: Essence name, Max.

IOANNA: Is the Greek Titan Prometheus a translation of a focus of his?


IOANNA: Is Io, Princess of Argos, a translation of a focus of mine?


IOANNA: Last time we spoke, I mentioned that he speaks to another focus of mine who goes by the name Jemima. She’s in another dimension. We had some chats with her through him, and we were wondering if she is actually a focus that’s still in transition, in the area which is transition?


IOANNA: Thank you. That’s a big help. (Elias chuckles)

For several months now, I’ve been seeing 4-4-4 imagery, and the other night I was sort of connecting to you. All of a sudden, it kind of hit me that the 444 is a connection to you. Is that true?


IOANNA: Does that have anything to do with the focuses we share in this dimension?

ELIAS: In what capacity?

IOANNA: The first time we spoke, you told me we shared 44 focuses, and I wanted to know if it was connected to that. Has there been an increase in focuses or...?

ELIAS: No increase, but the fours are your imagery of connection to myself.

IOANNA: Are you my grandfather in a focus where I basically adore you?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Yes.

IOANNA: Thank you. I dreamt that one.

This was almost a year ago, I guess. I had a dream where you told me that I would no longer be a part of the forum at some point and that my partner would no longer be in my life. It was sort of a disturbing dream. Since then he’s had some health problems, and I was curious if the dream was connected to his health problems.

ELIAS: No, but it was associated imagery with death, but not of your partner.

IOANNA: Actually, there’s been several people in my family diagnosed with cancer recently. Was it connected to that?

ELIAS: No. It was associated with the IMAGERY of death.

IOANNA: Just death in general?

ELIAS: Yes. More so in association with yourself and how you associate with death.

IOANNA: We feel his health problems are connected to his red energy center. Could you tell me a little about what he’s doing there, why he’s creating this now?

ELIAS: Be more specific.

IOANNA: I’m not quite sure how to say it. He’s just having some problems where he’s having difficulty with finding a job and things like that. I was curious if the issues he’s creating now have to do with that and also with his sexuality as well, as far as maybe some guilt, residual guilt, over a relationship he was in about a year ago.

ELIAS: Partially, and also partially shielding himself from exposure and the exposure that is expressed in intimacy. But the issue of exposure is being expressed in many different directions, not merely sexuality.

IOANNA: Is there anything he can do right now to move past this?

ELIAS: It is a matter of allowing and therefore being open to receiving. The automatic association with exposure is that you generate a vulnerability that is almost viewed as a negative. But in recognizing that without exposure, you cannot receive, that information is affecting of perception and may be more motivating to an individual to be allowing themselves to be expressing more openness and more of an exposure, to allow them to receive more fully.

IOANNA: Can I ask you if my partner and my essence twin are sharing counterpart action in this?


IOANNA: My essence twin Elan and I in the past few months have tried to go separate ways, but then decided to stay friends. He says that when he connects to me, he still feels a lot of fear. Is this also connected to my partner, the fear? He says that he also has this problem where he’s talking to me and his legs shake involuntarily.

ELIAS: Which also would be associated with exposure.

IOANNA: So they’re both sort of connecting...?


IOANNA: So both of them, basically in allowing themselves to expose more, will be able to move through these situations?


IOANNA: I think right now I’ve been exposing of myself. Is this an example for them?

ELIAS: Yes, but also may be perceived as somewhat threatening, for there is a fear of their own exposure. In reflecting an openness, that generates somewhat of a threateningness within them.

IOANNA: Thank you. I think I do understand this pretty well with the two of them. For me, the best I can do is to continue to focus on myself and be an example.

ELIAS: Yes, and to be supportive in acceptance.

IOANNA: Thank you, yes. Can we move on now to some focus questions?

ELIAS: You may.

IOANNA: First of all, I want to ask if I have a current timeframe focus, or had a focus, as a baby whale that was killed soon after it was born by orcas, after they isolated it from its mother?


IOANNA: My youngest son drew a picture that looks very much like the picture Oscar Wilde had drawn on an envelope that he kept his baby sister Isola’s hair in. I was wondering if my son is observing of Oscar Wilde.

ELIAS: Observing of the sister.

IOANNA: Awan had the impression that Isola Wilde was my focus.

ELIAS: Also observing.

IOANNA: Is that for the lifetime?


IOANNA: Short life. Thank you. There’s a man who lived in Alaska in Twin Lakes for 30 years alone named Richard Proenneke. Was he a focus of Tarmak?


IOANNA: Is Robert Burns, I think he’s a poet, a focus of Tarmak?

ELIAS: Observing.

IOANNA: Is that for the lifetime?


IOANNA: Thank you. Do I have a female focus named Margaret who raises wolf dogs in Alaska?


IOANNA: Did she and I recently do some kind of exchange for a day? I felt like I was not me. I knew I was me, but I felt I wasn’t me and that I wanted to be with my dogs in Alaska.


IOANNA: And she also – well, me as I know me – actually experienced the same in her body?


IOANNA: Dawn/Awan had an impression that Elan and I have focuses as her children in her focus Shahjahan, that we’re her children Prince Dara and Princess Jahanara.


IOANNA: I’m Jahanara and he’s Dara?


IOANNA: Thank you. This question is about Don/Allard, and he and I have made an interesting little connection. We feel that he and I like to explore focuses where I am good and he is evil, probably in other dimensions. Is that true?

ELIAS: Yes, and some in this dimension also.

IOANNA: (Laughs) Can you tell me how many focuses he and I share?

ELIAS: Nineteen.

IOANNA: That’s in this dimension?


IOANNA: I had a dream where I was talking to Elan and he was telling me that I was the woman mentioned briefly in a story in the Bible. After that, I started seeing little programs about the Bible. One woman mentioned frequently was Tamar. I wanted to know if Elan is Absalom and my focus is Tamar, the children of King David.

ELIAS: The first observing, the latter correct.

IOANNA: So mine is correct and his is observing?


IOANNA: Is Moses a focus of Elan?


IOANNA: Is he observing or counterpart, anything with Moses?

ELIAS: Partial counterpart.

IOANNA: Could I ask you what the essence animals for Mark and Dawn are?

ELIAS: First individual may be likened to a polar bear.

IOANNA: A polar bear!? Oh great! And for Dawn?

ELIAS: That energy would be likened to a sailfish.

IOANNA: I know that Mark has a focus as Boudica and Dawn has a focus as her daughter. I was wondering if I was the second daughter.

ELIAS: Observing and counterpart.

IOANNA: Am I also observing of Boudica?

ELIAS: Partial.

IOANNA: About a year ago, I guess, I had a dream which was quite vivid, and then afterwards I started having movie-like visions of a focus that would’ve been in France, I believe. In the focus, a group of us from the Darlings, I think, 14 or 15 of us, had a focus where we were prostitutes. Is that an actual focus?


IOANNA: Can I ask for the names? I have some name impressions. The following were the prostitutes. The first one was Adélaïde, and that was for Lucille.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: The second one is Cécile, and that was for Sandel.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: The next one is Camille, and that was for Camille.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Next we have Collette, and that was for Calum.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Élise for Myranda.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Émilie for Awan.

ELIAS: Michelle.

IOANNA: Laurence for Lawrence.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Madeleine for me.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Marguerite for Giselle.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Maryse for Becca.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Paulette for Samira.


IOANNA: Sophie for Conner.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: The following were not prostitutes but they were part of the focus. Odette, Collette’s daughter, for Francine.


IOANNA: Thomas for Elan.


IOANNA: Frederic for Paneus.

ELIAS: François.

IOANNA: He was François! We were wondering who François was. Jean-Paul for Rrussell.


IOANNA: Was François the one that was the actual... I don’t want to call him a pimp, but I don’t know what they would’ve called him. At first, we all thought that would’ve been your focus, as the man who took care of all the girls.


IOANNA: Was it Paneus, or was there another man that was sort of in charge?

ELIAS: The latter.

IOANNA: We did have a couple other impressions on that, and they would’ve been Baruch...


IOANNA: We thought, or should I say I thought, Baruch’s name was François. Could you give us that name?

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Jean-Henri.

IOANNA: That was great. I did good on that one! (Laughs with Elias)

I have a friend named Tim who wanted to know if you are the one who flashed his power on and off a few months ago.


IOANNA: Was that an introduction?


IOANNA: This is another impression for Awan. She thought that Rrussell had a focus as the Earl of Rothes, who was my focus’ husband.


IOANNA: The second husband of that focus, I don’t have his name but was he a focus of Elan?


IOANNA: Thanks. Dawn and Mark have a focus in Saudi Arabia where they’re both in love with a woman named Jasmine. Is that a focus of mine?


IOANNA: This is sort of the big one. In the Inmi group, which has recently been revived, we’ve been exploring the comic book series called “ElfQuest.” I have a list of names for those of us who would have translations that are similar to those characters.

ELIAS: Very well.

IOANNA: For me, this series is one that I was totally taken with when I was 19. I felt like I was there, which I didn’t understand at the time. I feel I have several focuses there, but two characters really stand out for me. Their names would be Timmain and Leetah.


IOANNA: For Dawn I have Savah.


IOANNA: For Tarmak I have a focus, Tildak.


IOANNA: For my youngest son, the focus is the son of my focus Leetah, who in the series is named Suntop.


IOANNA: He also feels that he has a focus there as the character Rayek. That was his impression.


IOANNA: For my daughter Bellen, Newstar?

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: My friend Dom/Max, Timmorn, the son of my focus Timmain?

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: For Allard, Lord Vol?


IOANNA: For Lucille, Winowill?


IOANNA: For Gillian/Ari, Petalwing?


IOANNA: For KC, Nonna?


IOANNA: Nonna’s mate, Adar, would that be a focus of Arkandin?


IOANNA: For Ashrah/Daryl, I have two. One is Ausra and one is Deerstorm.

ELIAS: The latter.

IOANNA: For Sandel, a focus who is also a wavedancer called Sandsparkle?


IOANNA: And another one for KC, Aroree?


IOANNA: For Paneus, one named Zhantee?


IOANNA: I’m not sure how this works, but is there an observing essence type thing going on there as well? In other dimensions do they still...


IOANNA: Because I have an impression that in other dimensions it’s not quite like this one...

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Are there actually situations where they double or triple up, and there’s no directing focus? It’s sort of like all of them are directing.

ELIAS: It is dependent upon the physical dimension, but yes, that is an expression that occurs in other physical dimensions.

IOANNA: With that, I wanted to ask if Elan is also part of the focus that my son is, as Rayek?


IOANNA: For him, there is another one, Cutter, which was Leetah’s mate. For that one, I also want to know if Tarmak was a also a part of that.


IOANNA: Thank you. We had an impression, Dawn and I, that this dimension was not the same as The Lord of the Rings.

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: In the story these were more like alien type beings that had traveled to a planet with two moons and were Elven once they settled. I know it’s a translation but...

ELIAS: Correct.

IOANNA: Would the two moons apply to where they are?


IOANNA: Oh great! I wanted to ask if Awan and I have a soft pyramid going and if Rrussell is also a part of that.

ELIAS: That is a potential.

IOANNA: So it’s not, at this point?

ELIAS: Correct, but it is a potential that you may create.

IOANNA: Is it also a potential that Daryl, Ashrah, would be a part of that?


IOANNA: My youngest son writes stories, and in one of his stories I am a character called Aspyn. Is this based on a focus?


IOANNA: I guess I could just ask if his other characters, for himself and those he’s identified, are correct as well? I don’t have them with me.


IOANNA: Oh, he’ll be so happy to hear that! Do I have a focus as a famous poet?


IOANNA: Is it Sylvia Plath?


IOANNA: Am I observing her?

ELIAS: Partial.

IOANNA: I guess I’d like to ask a question about sexual energy. I’ve had people express to me that I give off a sexual energy when that’s not my intention. I wanted to know if this is just something in their perception, or is this something I’m projecting unknowingly or...?

ELIAS: I may express to you, it is an energy that you are projecting but it is not necessarily a sexual energy. It is perceived in that manner, it is translated in that manner as it is received, but it is not actually projected in that manner.

At times, individuals may be projecting a strength in energy, and it may be translated in that manner for that is a familiar association with some types of strong energy. At times, that is also the translation that individuals may automatically generate in relation to the energy being expressed in an attractiveness and a strength. It is an automatic association, rather than genuinely evaluating the energy that is being received and understanding what is being received.

You are not projecting an energy that you are unaware of and that you are not intending. It is merely being translated in that manner by other individuals, for that is an automatic response to certain types of projected energy, which is quite similar to automatic translations that most individuals generate in relation to attraction. If an individual is experiencing an attraction to another individual, the automatic association with the attraction is sexual, which it may not be, but that is an automatic response.

IOANNA: I’m glad to know this, because sometimes I wonder if I’m putting something out that I am not aware of.

ELIAS: No, I may assure you that you are not expressing that type of energy with other individuals. You are expressing an attractive energy, for you are allowing yourself to be more expressive of yourself, and you are allowing yourself much more of your freedom. That is recognized in an attractive manner, and that influences the automatic response and association of sexual. But I am aware that you are not generating an energy that is intended to be received in that manner.

IOANNA: Thank you so much. (Laughs)

ELIAS: You are welcome. (Chuckles)

IOANNA: I had an experience yesterday, and I really wanted to put it on my questions for today. Someone contacted me, just a brief encounter, and I had a very, very strong reaction to it. I don’t know this person. I’ll first start off by saying that when I was 13, I was held at knife-point by a girl who ended up years later killing five or six people, and then her brother kidnapped me for a night when I was 13. Later on, I got this fascination with serial killers, and you confirmed that I had been a victim of one in another focus. In this focus, I always had this really odd feeling, not scared really, but like this feeling that that could be chosen again – not that I would, but that it was a possibility. When this person contacted me yesterday, I had like a reaction to him. I was wondering if that person was the serial killer in the focus you confirmed for me.


IOANNA: So that’s the reaction. If I were to contact this person now, it would be totally okay?


IOANNA: (Laughs) Thank you! (Elias chuckles) I was nervous. I mean, they look like a perfectly nice person, but the reaction was very strong.

Last week Dawn and I were on the computer chatting, and I heard a sneeze. I said “bless you” to my partner, just as he was typing that on Messenger to me. Neither of us sneezed, but Dawn said she had. Was that her sneeze we heard?


IOANNA: Wow! Was it a projection?

ELIAS: A connection in energy, which does not require projecting.

IOANNA: Can you tell me how many future focuses I have? I don’t think there are very many.

ELIAS: You recognize that that fluctuates. Presently, I may express to you that you incorporate 21.

IOANNA: Wow, that’s even more than I thought! I’m skipping all over the place here... Oh, do I have a connection with the Marquis de Sade?

ELIAS: Counterpart.

IOANNA: He was also connected to a 12-year-old girl named Madeleine LeClerc. Am I connected to her?

ELIAS: Observing.

IOANNA: Is that for her lifetime?


IOANNA: I can’t believe I’ve done so many of these questions! (Elias laughs) It’s like amazing to me. I thought I’d never have enough time. Could we maybe talk a little bit more about what’s going on with my essence twin relationship?

ELIAS: Very well.

IOANNA: I guess I’m pretty confused by it. I was talking to Mary about how initially there was such a strong connection between the two of us, and I think we both automatically associated that with having to be together in this focus. But I’m also in a relationship with someone I love very much and who I want to be in a relationship with, and this has caused a lot of problems for the two of us. Actually, I guess, the three of us, but my partner’s pretty accepting of this, at least outwardly. Can you tell either of us something that would help us to understand this better so we don’t have to go our separate ways because of it?

ELIAS: Remember, as we have discussed previously and have defined in our conversation, attraction is not always equated with sexuality, but it is quite often automatically associated with that. Therefore, in generating that type of an association, there are also other automatic triggers concerning relationships and romantic involvement, how that should be expressed and the expectations that are generated in association with romantic and sexual involvement. But not all relationships are expressed in sexual manners or in romantic manners, and that does not negate their potential for genuine intimacy.

In objectively meeting an essence twin within physical focus, generally speaking the individuals would not necessarily generate a romantic relationship. The reason that individuals do not engage a romantic relationship in association with essence twins – although it is not a rule, and it is not that it may never occur – but generally speaking, it does not, for the connection and the intimacy between essence twins is so intense and so strongly expressed that the beliefs concerning romantic relationships would be counterproductive.

IOANNA: I know that the focuses I’ve connected to where he and I were romantically involved usually ended in some kind of tragic way. Is that the reason why, the intensity?

ELIAS: That would be... Yes.

IOANNA: I had a session with Kris, and he said that in this focus, even though we’re not romantically involved right now, we do have probable selves that did go on to form a romantic connection. I was wondering, does that bleed through to the two of us? He actually connects with two other focuses of our essence that there’s a probability of them also meeting and getting together somehow. I was wondering if the Shift would lend energy to those types of relationships actually being more harmonious.

ELIAS: That is a potential. For in the accomplishment of the Shift, there is an acceptance of beliefs and much more of a clarity in awareness of the influences of beliefs, and more of an objective ability to choose specific influences of beliefs – which you are moving into now, but are not generating as much clarity yet.

IOANNA: As it is now, I don’t feel much acceptance from him much of the time for my expressions and the way I am.

ELIAS: I am understanding.

IOANNA: I feel like I accept so much about him and genuinely appreciate him, and I feel like sometimes he just can’t get past some of the things that have happened.

ELIAS: But this also is associated with expectations. In time frameworks in which individuals are expressing expectations, they also generate blocking and obstacles, and generate much more difficulty than they would be experiencing if they were not incorporating the expectations. Some expectations are not recognized, for they are associated with the individual’s truths and those are not yet recognized, which is not unusual in this time framework.

This is the point of this wave, to be experiencing these truths. But that also incorporates challenge, for truths are those beliefs that you have generated into absolutes, and therefore, they are unquestioned. They merely are.

IOANNA: So when I see a lack of acceptance – and in general, I feel most people in my life are very accepting of me – but when I generate it through him or through another person, is it always reflecting a lack of acceptance within me, or no?

ELIAS: Not necessarily. That is too black and white, too literal, and generating another absolute in association with mirroring. Reflecting is not mirroring. You may be reflecting some element to yourself to offer yourself information. You may be presenting to yourself information through another individual and their interaction with you, and in that, you may be reflecting to them.

In this, you continue to each generate information for yourselves individually, but as I have stated, reflecting is not mirroring. At times, individuals generate certain expressions in interaction with other individuals, and the reflection that they are presenting to themselves is designed to allow themselves the opportunity to view how they shall respond.

IOANNA: That was my impression with him and with another friend of mine, that in what I perceived as a lack of acceptance is actually an opportunity for me.

ELIAS: Yes, for it allows you to be aware of yourself and to be aware of your choices of how you respond rather than merely generating automatic responses.

IOANNA: Right, right! I feel I’m starting to get better at not doing the auto thing.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) It is merely a matter of practice.

IOANNA: Yes. You’ve been a help in that! (Elias laughs) So, there is the probability that he and I at some future time could be very accepting of each other?


IOANNA: I have another focus question, a sort of joint impression of Mark, Dawn, and myself. Do we have a focus in Ireland, where Dawn and I are sisters, maids that work for Mark’s focus, Patrick? Dawn’s focus would be Abigail and mine Amanda.


IOANNA: And Patrick’s mother is a focus of Becca named Maude?


IOANNA: And Patrick has two dogs, Alfred and Rex.


IOANNA: Is this in the early 1700s or 1800s?

ELIAS: Seventeen.

IOANNA: Around 1732?


IOANNA: Mark will be happy about that! (Laughs with Elias) And also, Mark connected to a focus where the four of us, Mark and Dawn, my partner and I, we share a focus in France in the future. I think my focus is born around 2015.

ELIAS: Twenty-one fifteen.

IOANNA: And the rest are close, within a couple years of each other?


IOANNA: Great. I can’t believe I got my whole list! (Elias laughs) My friend Omar, would the god Poseidon be a translation of a focus he has?


IOANNA: Do I have a focus as a mermaid?

ELIAS: An other-dimensional focus.

IOANNA: Thank you!

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.

IOANNA: I think I achieved what I intended, and that was to have a very fun session.

ELIAS: And I shall express my congratulations to you again! (Chuckles)

IOANNA: Thank you. I’m still working on the focuses we share. Are you my grandfather in more than one focus?


IOANNA: Yes. I get a very strong feeling of just adoring you as my grandfather. Could you give me a hint and a timeframe?

ELIAS: One within early 1800s, one within late 1600s.

IOANNA: Are they both in Europe?

ELIAS: Yes, and now you may generate your treasure hunt!

IOANNA: By the time I have my next session, perhaps I’ll figure out all 44 of our focuses!

ELIAS: Ah! That would be an accomplishment!

IOANNA: That’s ambitious, huh? (Laughs) Thank you so much, Elias.

ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend. I anticipate our next meeting, and I offer my encouragement and my supportiveness to you. In great lovingness and affection as always, in friendship to you, au revoir.

IOANNA: I love you too, Elias! Goodbye.

Elias departs after 1 hour, 1 minute.
