<  Session 1731 (Private/Phone)  >


Participants: Mary (Michael) and Ken (Alida).

(Elias’ arrival time is 16 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

KEN: Good morning, Elias! This is Ken P., my regular name. Actually, one of my questions is what essence name do I carry? It was interesting that in the transcripts you were talking to people about them being too dependent on essence names. I’m pretty sure it’s a female one, though, because I’m definitely 65 percent female energy.


KEN: Also, this particular lifetime, another thing was male/female/other, and I’m definitely other.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well. And are you requesting your essence name?

KEN: I don’t know! Actually, the question is how important is it to me? Or how important do you see it as being to me?

ELIAS: Not extremely, but perhaps a curiosity.

KEN: Okay.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well, I shall offer. Essence name, Alida, A-L-I-D-A (uh LEE duh)

KEN: I got it. Thank you. I’ll meditate on it and see what comes up in meditation.

ELIAS: Very well!

KEN: The other thing, also, I definitely feel the Ilda energy, and I feel some Sumari leanings. I’m just not sure if it’s Ilda-alignment/Sumari, or Sumari-alignment/Ilda, or am I just completely off base?

ELIAS: (Laughs) First of all, I shall express to you that all of you incorporate qualities of all of the essence families, but you are belonging to one and generally aligning with one in each focus. In this, you are belonging to Sumafi and aligning with Ilda.

KEN: Oh, really?! That’s interesting. Sumafi, I’ll study that a little more, then.

Ilda, of course, is the one that really leapt out at me when I was reading it in the original Seth material, definitely because of traveling, networking, that kind of energy.

ELIAS: Exchanging, yes.

KEN: And Sumari, do I have other focuses that are aligned with Sumari?


KEN: So maybe I’m tuning a little bit into those.

ELIAS: And also some qualities that you express that would be associated with Sumari.

KEN: Like initiating and having trouble finishing projects.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Yes.

KEN: I guess Ilda can do some of that too, because Ilda is so involved with travel.

ELIAS: And are quite playful.

KEN: I have been having lots of fun with your wonderful websites, which is basically showing the earlier information.

Shift in consciousness: I had this rather incredible breakthrough at the beginning of this year, and it’s very interesting because the Shift in Consciousness information seems to fit in many ways – becoming aware of more aspects of myself, for example.


KEN: Most of the information that I’ve been reading about the Shift in Consciousness is like 1996 to ‘97. We must be very far into it by now.

ELIAS: Let me express to you, this shift in consciousness began at the beginning of your previous century.

KEN: Nineteen hundred?

ELIAS: Yes. In that century, you were generating the movement of the Shift in a subjective manner, more of an inspirational movement, which is what sparked your tremendous surge in creativity and inventiveness.

In this century, you have moved the Shift into the objective element of it, and therefore are inserting it into your reality. The previous century was a type of preparation. This century is that in which it shall be realized.

KEN: And in this century, showing up in some very, very interesting stories going on in the world. Unfortunately, some of these stories are not very pleasant ones, like war and governments going out of hand.

ELIAS: I am understanding, which is all associated with what is occurring in relation to this shift in consciousness.

In this time framework, as I have been expressing to individuals for what you would term to be in your reality one and one-half of your years, you have been engaging a wave in consciousness addressing to the belief system of truths, and that is generating tremendous movement but also is generating considerable trauma.

For in this, as I have explained with other individuals previously many times, this particular wave is very powerful and is generating a tremendous strength of energy, and also generates a tremendous potential for polarization and opposition. For addressing to your individual truths may be indeed challenging, for your truths are not actually true. They are your guidelines individually for your focus, how you express and how you behave and what you deem to be right and wrong and good and bad, but they are not true. You have merely generated them into absolutes, and therefore, they become your individual truths. What they actually are are your individual beliefs that you have generated into absolutes, and therefore, they are unquestioned. If they are unquestioned, they are solid and absolute, and there is no allowance for any other type of expression.

KEN: So in other words, instead of seeing it as a belief, you’re seeing it as an attribute of reality, and that sort of makes the belief part invisible.


KEN: One of the concepts in the 1996 to ‘97 sessions was of people trying to put the brakes on the Shift. Is that what we are seeing now, with the religious right and the Republican party, people saying, “Oh no, we’ve got this shift in consciousness! Oh no, what’s it going to do to me? Is there some way I can put the brakes on it?” Is that what’s going on now?

ELIAS: Somewhat, in a manner of speaking, but not entirely. For what is occurring in this time framework is directly associated with this wave addressing to truths and how challenging that is. It sparks that tremendous potential for opposition, for individuals automatically hold to their own truths very tightly and express them as their absolutes and that they are right. Therefore, any difference is viewed as wrong and threatening.

Therefore, it sparks conflict, for the individuals are not actually paying attention to what they are engaging. They are merely expressing automatic responses, and this is one element of this shift that generates tremendous potential for trauma. This is the reason that I have been expressing the importance of the acceptance of difference and the importance of balance and not generating opposition and not generating polarization, for that might be quite easily expressed in this time framework.

In this, I have also explained that acceptance of difference does not require agreement. You continue to incorporate your individual preferences and opinions, but you may also incorporate acceptance of difference and generate cooperation even without agreement.

KEN: Yes, that’s a major thing to have. Cooperation, that seems to be almost a foreign topic with the United States and their foreign policy, but something they need to learn.

ELIAS: And an action that is changing, but not without considerable resistance.

KEN: One thing which I did make note of when I was reading the part about male/female/other, I definitely feel like “other” but not in a stereotypical manner.

ELIAS: In what manner?

KEN: It was more like feeling like a woman trapped in a man’s body, that kind of a thing, but feeling actually like a lesbian trapped in a man’s body, from the point of view that I am definitely interested in women, that kind of a deal. (Elias chuckles) But it is very interesting, when you were talking about male/female/other, having an experience of trying to blend the two. It seems that a good part of me is getting beyond gender.

ELIAS: I am understanding. In this, what you are experiencing is not so very unusual, for there are many individuals that generate more of a particular gender-type energy regardless of what physical gender they have chosen.

Also, let me remind you that this shift is also shifting the energy of your reality. To this point, the dominant energy of your reality has been associated with the male gender and the intellectual. In this shift, you are shifting that energy to the female gender and the intuitive.

KEN: I can see that. That is very visible if you’re looking for it.

ELIAS: Quite.

KEN: I’ve been looking for common ground between families of consciousness and other groupings that I see from other points of view. One grouping that I was curious to know if you are aware of from your point of view is the one of All-That-Is splits up, then splits up more and then splits up more, and then we start getting some ones that as they split up more, then it gets to... Well, there is one that is called “energy rings,” then “cadres” and then “entities.” The final one, before you get to individual essences, is a group of about a thousand essences. The Michael Teaching is what I’ve been involved with heavily that talks about this.

It’s essence that splits up into about a thousand, maybe between eight hundred and twelve hundred or so essences. Then there are seven of those entities that form a cadre, and then twelve of those cadres form an energy ring, and this grouping is here for the entire cycle of lifetimes for all the essences involved. Am I making any sense at all?

ELIAS: Yes, I am understanding.

KEN: With the Michael Teaching, we have lots of sevens – seven roles, seven goals. I’m in acceptance; I’m learning acceptance in this particular lifetime. Essence and personality is the teaching, that we have certain attributes we chose when we chose to cycle a physical life. Then we have other things that we chose as “overleaves,” is the word he calls it, as attributes for individual lifetimes. Choice, by the way, is a major part of all those. “Lifetime,” I’ll use that terminology, even though we’re talking about individual focuses.

ELIAS: Very well.

KEN: Seven comes up as being three groups of two and then one by itself: expression, inspiration, action, and the one by itself is assimilation, and the two roles being ordinal versus exalted. The roles, for example, are like the colored glasses that you wear through the lifetimes. The inspirational role, you have Servers which are involved with individual service, and then Priests which are involved with serving but on a more global level. In the expressive role, you have Artisan versus Sage, which is the ordinal versus the exalted. Then in the action role, you have Warrior versus King, the Warrior being the doers. Assimilative, all by itself, is Scholar, which I align with.

In effect, I guess part of my Ilda thing is kind of networking and putting together all these pieces I get from different sources. Seth is the first one I started reading. You align more with Seth, actually. You’re like continuing the Seth teachings...

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking.

KEN: ...but then also going off with your own teachings in addition.


KEN: It’s interesting. Family of consciousness is like a guild, like groupings, like let’s-join-a-club kind of groupings. (Elias laughs) I am talking about when we’re beginning physical life, for me about a billion and a half years ago.

ELIAS: Not entirely, but they may be somewhat associated with what you recognize within your reality as tribes, essences that express commonalities of qualities and energy in association with this physical reality.

There are many other groupings, so to speak, of essences within consciousness. This identification of these essence families is associated with this particular physical reality and would not be associated with other realities. Although the same essences that participate in these essence families may also participate in other groupings and in other realities, their groupings in these essence families are merely associated with this particular reality.

KEN: The other ones I was talking about, entity and cadre, it’s like we come to the physical planet on this bus with seats with an address on them, and then we all start doing our own sets of lifetimes and we meet on the way. Instead of me having to randomly pick from the billions of people that are on the planet right now, I am instead picking from the seven thousand or so that are in this cadre for closer experiences.

ELIAS: I am understanding, which I have also expressed that you do manifest in groups.

KEN: Do you have your own name for the cadre groupings, or have you channeled this in the past?

ELIAS: I do not generally incorporate that type of labeling for actions that you incorporate, although I am not in dispute with any essence that chooses to be incorporating that type of identification, for it is not invalid. It is merely not the direction of information that I am generating.

My offering of information is directly associated with what you collectively have asked for. This is the reason that I have chosen to be interactive with all of you, for collectively in association with the movement of this shift in consciousness, you asked for information. Therefore, I have responded and offer information concerning this shift.

In that, there are many, many, many essences that are engaging energy exchanges with individuals within your physical reality that are also offering information. They may be offering information in different terminology, but generally they are all offering information in association with helpfulness in regard to this shift in coconsciousness.

KEN: The thing is is that I just started looking at your information just a few days ago, since I made the appointment, and the thing about it is the Shift in Consciousness has been well known to me through other sources.


KEN: In fact, there is even a little slang term now, “shift happens.” (Both laugh) The funny thing about it is all these different sources I’m looking at, I’m actually pulling information from various fringe sources, too. Some of these pieces of information I wouldn’t really recommend to other people, but it’s still kind of fascinating information. Some of them are trying to say that the Shift requires things like a pole shift in the earth and other things like that. I think you said no, we do not need that kind of a thing. We don’t need to put more trauma into it.

ELIAS: Correct.

KEN: The only comment I have regarding that is it looks like there are some people in our government, especially the ones that seem to think that they can rape and pillage the earth, you know, the environmental stuff that seems to be going on right now, maybe they need to learn that if they don’t take care of the earth, the earth is not going to take care of them. But somehow or another those lessons are going to come through, one way or another.

ELIAS: It is occurring, and as I have stated, this shift is being accomplished. It involves the entirety of your world and every individual that participates in your reality and...

KEN: And the earth itself.

ELIAS: Yes, in a manner of speaking, for you create it. Therefore, if you are shifting, your reality is shifting, and all that is within your reality and your planet is an element within your reality.

The significance in this movement is to be paying attention to what you individually are doing and what type of energy you individually are expressing. That is ultimately important, for one of the actions of this shift is also to be shifting the emphasis from authorities to the individual, and the significance and the power and the importance of the individual and the importance of the individual directing themselves, and to generate a cooperation as you are directing yourselves.

KEN: So, in effect basically, each person learning to direct themselves and then cooperating with other people in their directing of themselves.

ELIAS: Correct, which shall generate significant alterations of your physical reality in how it is expressed. It shall not eliminate your beliefs and it shall not alter the physicality of your reality, but how you interact with each other shall be tremendously altered and how you express your cooperation to accomplish what you want shall be tremendously altered. As I have expressed previously, one of the dramatic alterations in association with this shift is your action of exchange.

KEN: “Action of exchange,” kind of how we buy, sell, barter, that kind of exchange?

ELIAS: Yes, for that shall be unnecessary. If all individuals are directing themselves and are generating what they want, it is unnecessary to incorporate exchange.

Another dramatic alteration of your reality that is being expressed in association with this shift is the thinning of these veils of separation.

KEN: I myself have experienced that. My inner life is much more accessible to me now than it used to be.

ELIAS: And beyond. You may be interactive with individuals that have disengaged, you may be interactive with other realities, and you may be interactive with nonphysical essence.

KEN: I’m already part way there!

ELIAS: I am understanding, for this is one element of the Shift that is already being expressed quite significantly.

KEN: Yes. I like the line in the movie “The Sixth Sense” that the boy says: “I see dead people.” There’s going to be a lot of that.

ELIAS: And that is more real than you realize. (Laughs) As I have expressed also, you shall be becoming aware, as you already are in some capacities, that your science fictions are much closer to science fact than fiction.

KEN: I may have mentioned before that I had a very incredible breakthrough at the beginning of this year.


KEN: It started with a week of going within, very strong going within, December 27 to January 2. January 3, I wrote a major essay that is now called “Stories and Games,” but then I called it “My Existential Rap.” Basically, I came up with the idea that basically it’s ALL stories and games. That’s all that reality is.

ELIAS: Ha ha! Quite!

KEN: Yes. Nightmares, horror stories, those exist, too. They’re part of the whole.

ELIAS: But they are all elements of the game. It is ALL an exploration. This is the nature of consciousness, a continuous exploration and a continuous expansion.

KEN: And games are the other part. It’s all games – the course versus refining; rules needed changing many times. Maybe in the very, very beginning, you come in once, play, win, go to heaven and watch the rest, or lose and go to the penalty box, like hell. But maybe we made ways for people to come back for a re-match, made rules for it – eye for an eye, etcetera, made the rules more subtle. This is a Michael thing – infant, baby, mature or old soul levels – as far as essence awareness levels, and memory importance, once again, since many of these games lose their interest when people figure them out too fast and remember prior times that they played.

Then I got into our history, and one of the things about it is that people pick up on future lifetimes, another path, another sideways path through history. I’m getting a good feeling, by the way, about how illusory time is.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Quite!

KEN: One of the things that I have been experiencing recently is infinity, stepping outside of time. One of my memories of the past was about in effect stepping outside of the earth environment and seeing how simple it is, how there isn’t so much behind it. It’s like I stepped outside of history and saw earth from the back of the bleachers at a football field. I think this was the first time I was being shown that the joke was on me. By the way, that’s the opening line of my first essay, “The joke’s on me.” That was one of my infinity experiences, by the way. While I was in it, I could see no way to get back to my day-to-day life. Of course, I did make it back. This is fascinating information!

ELIAS: I may express to you an acknowledgment of your discovery and your experience, for as I have expressed many times previously, within your physical reality, generally speaking, individuals seek to complicate tremendously, and in actually...

KEN: Everything is very simple.

ELIAS: Correct. Quite precise but also quite simple.

KEN: My second essay, by the way, was “My Observations on Memory,” is the title of it. I actually went over it and the idea about memory lines with Mary before starting the session. We have our main memory line for this lifetime that generally begins with our first memory after birth, though earlier memories do exist, and then our memory line will continue to our death or even afterwards, with a topic of the worldview from Seth, which I think you continued also...


KEN: ...where the persona of the lifetime continues with his or her experiences. One of the fascinating books that I read by Jane Roberts was “The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher: The World View of William James.” Even while other focuses were created later on, it was certainly made very, very obvious that the part that called himself William James very much continued after death. In other words, that focus continued with its own quite rich set of memories and was finally able to express itself in a book through Jane Roberts.

ELIAS: Correct.

KEN: What I expect, quote/unquote, when I transition, though, is that another portion of myself, the essence, deals with all of the focuses, learns from them and plans out what focus I might try in the future. That’s what I expect to tune into when I die, as opposed to continuing with just Ken P.

ELIAS: Ah, but you ARE essence. All of essence is you. Therefore...

KEN: All of my focuses are available now.

ELIAS: Correct, for they are all occurring simultaneously. In this, one focus of attention is no less significant than all of essence, for within one focus of attention IS all of essence. Therefore, if you disengage, or in your terms, if you die...

KEN: “Disengage” is fine. I’ve been reading that part of your website.

ELIAS: in your awareness and your identity continue. It is not absorbed into some larger entity, for that essence IS you. You may expand your awareness of yourself as essence, but this identity that you know in this focus remains and continues and generates its own choices and its own direction.

KEN: Even after disengaging with physical reality?


KEN: I had some sessions with Michael, and one of the things that came up after my breakthrough thing was about some personalities. What I got from one of them, which I have been pondering and which has quite a good ring to it, is that there’s only one “I,” which is the spark which is part of All-That-Is, and there are many “me’s,” which make up all of my subjective personalities.

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes, that would be accurate.

KEN: When I speak as “I,” I’m speaking from the highest level. If I’m speaking for “me’s”... It’s mind-boggling. (Both laugh)

ELIAS: And as I have expressed, there are countless you’s of you.

KEN: Yes, but there is still the one essence...


KEN: ...that is over it all.

ELIAS: Yes, and there are countless you’s of you in each focus of you.

KEN: One of my recent things was disenfranchised sub-personalities, about how there are pieces of me that are out there that feel a little bit lonely because I’ve been ignoring them!

ELIAS: (Laughs) Ah, but this is another element of the exploration, is it not, to be becoming familiar intimately with all of you.

KEN: I have a last lifetime which is close but not quite present. I have one more female lifetime that actually I am already planning in Iceland. But you are saying basically that the idea of the final one disengaging is to become aware of every one of these focuses.

ELIAS: That is the action that occurs with any focus at disengagement.

KEN: But there was mention at one point of... I lost my train of thought.

ELIAS: Are you enquiring as to final focuses?

KEN: There was a person who was aware of their first focus and their final focus at the same time, and you were making mention of what will happen to that particular person at that particular time.

ELIAS: Yes, it can.

KEN: For that particular person, it is not necessarily something that would be... I guess it depends on how the person is conducting themselves.

ELIAS: It is dependent upon your interest and what you choose to explore. Any individual may be aware of their initiating focus and of their final focus.

KEN: Even if it is not this focus?

ELIAS: Correct.

KEN: Like my becoming aware of a lifetime in Iceland.

ELIAS: Correct. Many individuals choose to be exploring in this manner and exploring other focuses and allowing themselves an awareness and a temporary mergence with other focuses, to offer themselves information and the identification of which focus may be the initiating focus and which focus may be the final focus. Many individuals that incorporate the designation of the final focus may choose to be exploring which focus is the initiating focus and become aware, but this is merely a matter of preference and what the individual chooses to explore.

KEN: The other thing also about it is until you actually spend time with it, you probably don’t know for sure that it is the final focus, because things can happen.

ELIAS: Correct.

KEN: You have free will, and you can certainly start new entanglements that might make it hard to be a final focus. Almost anything could happen.

ELIAS: Correct, for there are no absolutes.

KEN: Exactly. I could start new inner personal situations that definitely would require other focuses.

ELIAS: But as essence, you occupy all of consciousness, and you are an element of all of consciousness. Therefore, you choose to agree to incorporate the guidelines or the blueprints of whatever physical reality you choose to manifest within. For there are countless realities that exist, and therefore, the blueprint of any one reality is not viewed as limiting, for you are also participating in countless other realities.

KEN: Definitely. On this note, it looks like we are getting to about the end of the time. I want to thank you extremely much for this. I will be coming to New Orleans, so I will see you there.

ELIAS: Ah, I shall be welcoming!

KEN: And again I thank you very, very much. This is a very wonderful session.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.

KEN: It was wonderful to interact with you.

ELIAS: And you also, my friend. I shall be anticipating our next meeting, and I shall be offering my energy to you in the interim time framework.

KEN: I’ll look for you when I’m looking for the nonphysical beings around me. I’ll look for you.

ELIAS: Very well. I shall be incorporating blue! (Laughs)

KEN: Thank you very much. I will hang around and let you transition back, and then talk again with Mary.

ELIAS: Very well, my friend. To you in tremendous affection, au revoir.

KEN: Same here, with love.

Elias departs after 54 minutes.
