ďMass Events/Statements/Responses/Belief SystemsĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael), Vicki (Lawrence), Ron (Olivia), Cathy (Shynla), Gail (William), Drew (Matthew), Sue (Catherine), and Mary Jane (Kaileen).
Vicís note: This session was held at The Bodhi Tree in West Hollywood, Ca. The subject matter is regarding the deaths of Princess Diana and Mother Teresa, and the mass events, statements, responses and belief systems therein. Dianaís funeral was being televised the day of the session.
Elias arrives at 2:41 PM. (Time was ten seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon. We shall continue our discussion in regard to your mass events occurring presently and offering you more information concerning this action. This also directly is related to your shift in consciousness, for this provides en masse for you all to be viewing new aspects of actions that you have not allowed yourself the awareness of previously.
In this, an act has been chosen within what you view to be a small time framework. One essence manifesting its final focus has disengaged, causing the action of all other focuses of the same essence to disengage. Therefore, you view two focuses, which are what you consider to be public figures as individuals, as an example. Four other individuals upon your planet within this same time framework have also disengaged physical focus, but more privately and quietly, to your view; these individuals all being focuses of one essence, also being individuals located within very different areas of your planet.
It is common for essences to focus several focuses of themselves within the same time framework or century, as I have expressed to you previously. Each of you holds other focuses within this same time framework in this dimension. Therefore, if one of you, knowing that you are a final focus, was choosing to be disengaging, the other focuses which are physically manifest upon this planet presently would also be spontaneously disengaging.
Neither of your two public figures were the final focus, but were affected within essence in choosing not to be fragmented and choosing to be disengaging physical focus as a response to essence in the choice of the final focus. In this, en masse you have provided yourselves with an example of the action of essence, and also provided yourself with other elements that you may connect to your shift.
Globally, presently, there are three mass events occurring: one in response to public actions generating an emotional response, this providing information to be remembered by you of your interconnectedness. Another is what individuals physically-focused view as a non-response, although the non-response in actuality is a response, for these individuals hold an awareness of the first mass expression; this providing them the opportunity to be viewing movement en masse within consciousness of individuals, and providing them also with the element of acceptance and understanding in response to individuals responding differently. The third mass event occurring is that with individuals holding no objective knowledge of the other mass events.
Presently upon your planet, there are masses of individuals who hold no objective knowledge whatsoever of the mass events that you view. Therefore, they also are creating their own mass event in providing a different expression, that of in actuality no expression. This affords you, as you are gathering information presently, the opportunity to view actions within mass waves of consciousness and how they are affecting, and also affords you the opportunity to view other aspects of your reality that you now present yourselves with en masse that you have not provided yourself with previously. (Pause) I offer to you that you may ask your questions.
DREW: I would ask for Mary why sheís responding so emotionally to both of these events. She doesnít understand herself why she just becomes a wreck emotionally, watching funerals or hearing about the deaths of these two public figures.
ELIAS: Previously, within our last meeting, I have offered you a partial explanation. Michael responds partially to these events for he holds issues with the agenda that we engage. Therefore, there is an automatic response within his feelings. Beyond this, Michael has chosen within consciousness to be aligning with the first mass event, therefore allowing for a connection in consciousness without separation of the masses. Essentially, what he is experiencing is that which masses of individuals are experiencing individually.
DREW: And you said that these two deaths are part of the shift in consciousness, and serve as an opportunity for us to learn more about the shift and understand it better?
DREW: However, were I not here at these sessions and getting an understanding from your explanation, I donít know that I would view these as anything other than what I assume the mass sees them as, which is just individual, tragic deaths that coincidentally happened at the same time. Without the information youíre providing, how is the mass public aided in understanding the shift as a result of these two events?
ELIAS: Objectively within the terminology of the shift, in what you recognize to be the shift, these events shall not be tremendously enlightening to individuals upon your planet, although expressions are made by individuals and en masse that may be objectified and leaning into an understanding of this shift in consciousness, as you all begin to watch your creations as resulting from these mass events.
DREW: So the lessons may be yet to come for us?
DREW: Okay. Thank you. (Silent pause)
ELIAS: So very quiet this day!
GAIL: What was the reason for my emotional expression of watching the funeral yesterday? Was it just an empathetic expression?
ELIAS: Correct. As I have stated, this offers you each, within your own expression, to be accepting of your own expression and investigating your responses.
GAIL: I have a couple of questions to ask, with the thought of expressing emotionally. Iím trying to figure out where to start. Tom and I have been interacting, viewing aspects of ourselves in the Civil War period, and we have viewed into each otherís eyes and have seen each other in that time frame. I have a question as to who the person was that Tom saw in me after he saw her, the male that he saw.
ELIAS: (Accessing) This would be another bleed-through of another aspect of your essence.
GAIL: Okay. And am I able to also view that within him if we continue the meditation?
ELIAS: If you are choosing.
GAIL: Another question is, objectively we create things outside of ourselves for explanations, like Tom ate some fish and he is ill right now, but he would like to know what the subjective meaning to this is.
ELIAS: (Accessing) James has quite creatively offered himself imagery to be offering himself the opportunity to not be connecting with many other individuals presently, as he chooses not to be connecting for he is also choosing non-acceptance and not allowing himself to be moving into any area of acceptance presently, battling with this issue. Therefore, he offers himself reinforcement in excuses to not be addressing to the issues.
GAIL: In his physical illness, I was empathetic to it and picked up or chose the same experience, but in the experience of my physical illness, I viewed myself in this present time looking at satanic issues in my childhood, and also in the Civil War period of being a nurse, caring for people that were injured. Was that my subjective understanding of being empathetic to Tomís illness?
ELIAS: This would be yourself providing yourself with more information of self, not necessarily in conjunction with James. It is merely what you have offered yourself as a trigger.
GAIL: But that was the trigger? To look at those two things?
GAIL: So now I understand my emotional response. Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome. I have also stated that individuals will be experiencing responses to the mass in conjunction with the issues that they are also presently individually engaging. This also provides you with a greater opportunity to be viewing elements of yourselves that you may have not allowed yourself yet to be connecting with. I have expressed to you previously that many individuals align with mass events, for this provides them an ease in also connecting with and moving into the area of dealing with or addressing to their own personal issues. The wave carries much energy, which if allowing yourself to be connecting with the wave, you move into areas of your own individually more easily; just as we have discussed previously of the action of your flu season and individuals creating this action in creating illness for their own individual reasons, but also choosing to move within the wave of consciousness, for it provides them added energy for ease in their accomplishment of their own individual expression. (Pause)
MJ: Okay, youíre looking the right way. I always have so many questions, Iím afraid to start! A couple of days ago, I had contact with an individual named Rae. This is someone Iíve had no contact with for several months, but there was a point where we met over the computer and where it was clear that there are an extraordinary number of connections between us, or reflections in objective stuff. This isnít very well thought out, obviously! But I have a great curiosity to know more about that connection and that relationship because itís really quite extraordinary. Can you tell me something about that?
ELIAS: You may be exploring this further and offering yourself more information within the area of counterpart action.
MJ: Thatís what I thought.
ELIAS: Within this shift, you all shall be providing yourselves with a recognition now of counterpart action. You shall be presenting yourselves within this time framework with the objective recognition and connection with counterparts to yourselves, this also being a bleed-through action of this shift in consciousness. Previous to this century, your creation of your reality was not designed to be objectively encountering other counterparts to yourselves. Therefore, individuals previously within other centuries may have momentarily within their focuses objectively ďbumped into,Ē so to speak, a counterpart singularly, but would hold no recognition of this and also would not be pursuing of this. Now, within the action of this shift, individuals within the entirety of your planet shall be presenting themselves with counterparts and also investigating the connections and recognizing the responses. This is not to say that individuals not offering themselves this information shall be expressing, upon meeting a counterpart, ďOh! I am recognizing that you are counterpart to myself!Ē They shall not, but they shall be recognizing of connections and allowing themselves to be exploring those connections, or exploring the reasoning for the repelling action of certain counterparts.
MJ: In this particular case, we had extremely heavy communication for a period, and then suddenly it just dissipated. And I sort of imagined in my mind that there was like a grid, almost like we were on two paths that had crossed at a particular junction and then we both just kept on going, but I donít know if that grid idea has any validity to it. But thatís what keeps coming to my mind, because at the time that we crossed paths, we were both ... and I think itís a very shift-related phenomenon that we were both dealing with, which was a sense of a void or the sense of being ready to die, but not in a suicidal sense, just in a sense of being finished, which is how I discovered her on the computer, because she was expressing the same thing that I had been feeling. So my sense was that we were helpful to each other at a point, and then that was no longer necessary. So now that we meet again, Iím not sure what that means, but I guess Iíll find out!
ELIAS: Your imagery is quite creative in your explanation to yourself of the movement of energy. I may express to you that you are correct in your assessment, although the movement of energy is more extensive than you are offering yourself in explanation, but you are correct in your thought process of the action of energy. Within the action of the counterparts, you do not necessarily move in passing. You move in rotation. Therefore, you intersect at certain time frameworks, and then move rotationally and may intersect again for added information. You move into another intersection to offer yourselves the opportunity to view more extensively counterpart action.
MJ: That sounds right.
ELIAS: Thank you very much! (Grinning)
MJ: Thank you!
DREW: Iím not one to generally ask questions about physical injury myself, but Iíve had significant pain in my neck and shoulder the past three or four days, so much so that I havenít been able to do certain things that I planned to do, and Iím wondering if you can give me some insight as to where thatís coming from?
ELIAS: (Accessing) This would be a holding of energy in response to underlying issues that you are beginning to address and not necessarily quite objectifying yet, but offering yourself symptomatic problems in pulling this issue surfacely, so to speak, and creating a holding of energy within certain physical areas. This would be related to individual issues that you hold within you in the direction of change that you have not quite objectively presented yourself with to this moment. You have chosen to be addressing to issues of changing certain elements within your focus, but have not quite allowed yourself to be objectively connecting with this yet.
DREW: Would those be the same issues of change that Iíve been dealing with all this time and that I went through that wave recently about, or are these new issues?
ELIAS: They are related; just different aspects.
DREW: And so does the diminishment of the pain indicate a moving through, or is it just that the pain couldnít be permanent anyway? Or I guess it could have been, I suppose! So as the pain subsides, should that reflect either that Iíve moved through, or have just decided not to change and released it? How should I interpret the diminishment of the pain?
ELIAS: Within the diminishment of the pain, you may view movement in your addressing to the issue. This is not to say that the entire accomplishment shall be objectified, but as the pain is diminishing, you shall be offering yourself information that you are moving and that you are accomplishing addressing to certain aspects of this issue.
DREW: So the pain represents the surfacing of the issue, not necessarily the moving through of it.
DREW: Okay. Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
VICKI: Last week I asked you a question about if there was a mass statement being made with the mass event, and if I understood correctly, you said it was not necessarily in the terms that I was thinking, but that there was some sort of statement being made within the choice of disengagement?
VICKI: Quite a few people have suggested to me that they believe that a mass statement was being made by this individual with regard to the action of the press, not only in our country but in other countries, and Iím just curious about that aspect of it.
ELIAS: This be one element.
VICKI: This is what you were referring to when you were referring to the choice of disengagement?
ELIAS: Partially; for be remembering, this is one essence disengaging physical focus. Therefore, different aspects shall be accomplished in this. The choice has been made within the action of this essence, and its objectification of the final focus choosing to be disengaging. This also is not accidental, in knowing that other focuses of this essence would be creating of mass events and would be creating of tremendous noticing. There are different aspects of noticing which have been provided. You begin now to question areas of your reality that do not serve you presently.
Another aspect is that of your interconnectedness with each other. This also may be seen as a statement. There is no separation. Although you view yourselves to be encased in individual bodies, you are all connected. There is no separation, and this offers you also a statement to be validating of this, that you may view the interconnectedness of all of you upon your planet.
VICKI: I think Iím still unclear. Let me rephrase the question. Did this essence have an intent within this choice of disengagement to be affecting of the press?
ELIAS: Of the press, of the masses, of the recognition of responsibility within your focus and within the movement of your shift, addressing once again to the issues of acceptance and non-acceptance; acceptance of new choices, and non-acceptance of what has been established and officially accepted. This also, within the choice of this essence Ė knowing that two individuals of this essence are public figures, in your terms Ė this shall be addressing also to the vastness of your religious belief systems and the ending, so to speak, of your religious era. Both of these public individuals have generated and will be generating of much attention to religious belief systems. Therefore, another statement.
Many more actions are being addressed within these mass expressions than you are presently aware of, but you shall be aware as you are watching and noticing and also investigating of these actions. This has provided you Ė you have provided yourselves Ė a tremendous opportunity to be viewing many more aspects of your reality and your statements to yourselves and your movement and your changing of your reality en masse, not only individually. You may view within these mass events movement that you to this point have viewed as only individual. Individuals express to this essence continuously, ďWhen shall we view the action of this shift en masse?Ē You do, presently.
VICKI: You said that there was a third faction or whatever of individuals that in actuality had no objective expression or response because they had no objective knowledge.
VICKI: Wouldnít they be responding anyway, though?
ELIAS: Subjectively, absolutely; and they are lending energy to both of the other mass movements.
VICKI: So that would be kind of like one of those deals where youíre walking around having feelings or whatever that you canít explain to yourself because you donít have any objective knowledge.
VICKI: Okay, I have one more question thatís kind of off the wall, kind of a weird question. You said that there were four individuals, four focuses of this essence that have disengaged also as a result of the choice.
VICKI: So would these four people be represented on the pieces of papers that contained obituaries that Ron randomly printed out yesterday?
VICKI: Hmm. Interesting.
ELIAS: As I have stated, these individuals were choosing to be disengaging in your terms quietly, and not all within what you see as being the same time framework of days. Each disengages upon a different day, although within essence they are disengaging simultaneously.
VICKI: And of course, they also had the choice to fragment.
DREW: Is it reasonable to believe that as we become more accepting of choices, like the choice of Princess Di to disengage the way she did, that this kind of emotional response would be lessened?
ELIAS: Within what you view to be future, yes; for you have offered yourself the expression within mass presently.
DREW: Well, as we become more understanding that a death is not necessarily a tragic thing but a choice ... futurely, if a famous public figure or any death we consider to be tragic now, with that new understanding in the future that itís just a choice, there would be less of an emotional response?
ELIAS: Absolutely, this being another element of these mass statements and mass expressions, in also addressing to your very strong mass belief systems concerning what you view to be death.
DREW: Michael had some concerns that this is in a sense a desensitization to death, that this new knowledge and acceptance will result in being less sensitive to ... well actually, I think her concern was being less sensitive to the emotional response of people who didnít hold that understanding. Thatís a little different. She was concerned that if I, for example, understand that the Princessí and Mother Teresaís choices were simply their choices, and therefore I am less empathic or sensitive to the mass outpouring emotionally, that I am somehow desensitized to that emotional response thatís being exhibited en masse, and ... Iím answering my own question now!
ELIAS: I shall express to you that the idea of desensitizing is incorrect. Individuals may not be desensitizing in accepting, for you hold an awareness that you are all interconnected. You may be holding an understanding in your own acceptance, which is an aspect of this movement presently in being accepting of other individualsí expression, but also holding an understanding of the belief systems that are being affected; and also recognizing that you may be allowing yourself an understanding of disengagement, and so also may another individual hold the same understanding of death, but you may continue to be accepting of each otherís expressions, and this would not be desensitizing.
DREW: Once the shift is complete, there would no longer be tears over death. Is that correct?
ELIAS: Correct, for the belief system shall be neutralized.
DREW: There would really be no tears over anything!
ELIAS: Not necessarily. You are not disengaging your emotions!
DREW: But we would understand that they are just belief systems and weíd be accepting of them, which then eliminates their power. Is that not true?
ELIAS: Correct, but this does not eliminate your choice to be engaging emotional responses.
DREW: For the experience.
DREW: Right now, we donít hold that choice.
ELIAS: You do hold the choice of all things. You merely do not understand, and do not remember. Therefore, you do not enact your choices. (Pause)
We shall break, and you may continue with your questions if you are so choosing.
BREAK 3:30 PM.
ELIAS: Continuing. (Long pause) Or not!
VICKI: Okay, I have a question. We made a conscious agreement and attempt last night to be affecting of the objective imagery of this particular event here today, which I think all of us have probably lent energy to individually at times. But we did engage five people to be helpful, through joining energy to be affecting of the imagery, like I said. Obviously we werenít successful within our conscious goal, nor have we been, in our perception, within this public event forum. I donít think weíve really ever addressed this in a session. So my question is, whatís going on? (Pause)
ELIAS: You view that you have not accomplished, for your expectation is not met, for you hold an expectation. In this, you are also not trusting. Therefore, as you continue to hold to the expectation and you continue to not be allowing a free flow in trust, you also provide yourself with a validation of lack of response. You are affecting subjectively within consciousness. You also provide yourselves with objective imagery of this. You merely look within one direction and expression, which you hold an expectation within, and you are not validated in this one area, but this also is a direct reflection of your lack of trustfulness in this particular situation. You also continue to hold, not as greatly presently, but you continue to hold a reluctance within what you term to be ďpublic forum,Ē viewing this as different from other interaction, which it is not; but as you continue to hold to that belief and to your reluctance in movement in this particular direction, you block its actualization.
Each of you individually holds a response to public forum and the reluctance in this area. Therefore, you provide yourself with much imagery outside of public forum in response. You validate yourselves that individuals shall draw themselves to this information, but you block in the area of public forum; for within your response in other areas, you hold to your safety and comfort and you also provide yourselves what you view to be your automatic protection, which is unnecessary. But you continue to hold to these beliefs that there is some threatening element to you within public forum, although there is not, but you each hold the belief that you may be exposing yourselves to negativity or threatening situations publicly. You shall not be drawing this to yourselves, and individuals shall not be drawn to this information which shall be threatening any more than all of the other individuals which draw to this information are threatening to you; but you offer yourselves the situation of engaging many individuals not physically, viewing this as comfortable and safe. As you move into an awareness that you are safe within public forums and you allow yourselves the trust in this area and the relinquishment of your fears and your reluctance, you shall also view a different response.
VICKI: So are you saying Ė just to ask a personal question Ė that I personally hold this belief of not feeling safe in this situation?
ELIAS: Within certain elements, yes.
VICKI: Thatís a belief system Iím not aware of.
ELIAS: This would be an underlying belief system which is held by you all, not merely the pyramid. Therefore, if you are addressing to these underlying belief systems, you may also view movement. It matters not to this essence, for I shall speak to you regardless.
VICKI: I understand that. Thereís a concern on Maryís part.
ELIAS: There is an expectation held, and also a non-acceptance of self, and also a response to what is viewed as a responsibility personally within the information delivered and its affectingness and its assimilation with other individuals. I express to you though, that Michael alone is not singularly affecting of what you view, for you all hold an expectation and you all hold the underlying belief system of threateningness.
VICKI: You know, the expectation thing gets confusing, because quite often we engage action in physical focus that we hold an expectation of a result, and we achieve that!
ELIAS: For you also hold an absolute knowing.
VICKI: And no fear.
ELIAS: Correct. Therefore, you hold an acceptance, and in this acceptance and knowing, you do not question what you objectify. You do not question your expectation. Therefore, you achieve. (Pause) Are you wishing of more questions?
SUE: I have one. You mentioned earlier that counterparts may feel very attracted to each other, or they may sometimes feel repelled.
SUE: Is that common? Is this draw or feeling of one or the other an indication then for counterparts?
ELIAS: Many times this would be an indication to you objectively that you are engaging or encountering counterpart action. If you are experiencing extreme responses to individuals, you many times are encountering counterpart action. As you objectively meet another individual for the first time and you are exceedingly repelled and even repulsed by this individual and holding no reasoning for this feeling and response, you may be assured you have encountered an opposite counterpart.
SUE: So if you donít feel much one way or the other, youíre probably not a counterpart?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. There are different counterpart actions, and not all counterpart actions shall create a response in extreme. It is not an indication merely if you are intensely drawn or intensely repelled by another individual. There are other actions within the action of counterparts that may be less obvious to you. We shall also be addressing to the subject of counterpart action within essence families at our next meeting.
VICKI: Is it common for focuses of the same essence manifest during the same time frames to objectively meet?
ELIAS: As I have expressed this day, within your history, no; but as you are moving into your shift and allowing more of your shift presently, this shall become more common.
VICKI: What would a typical response to that meeting be?
ELIAS: It is dependent upon the manifestation and intent of the focus. If two focuses of one essence are meeting and their individual intents and choices of probabilities are similar, they shall be holding an intense response to each other; although if their intents are very different, they may hold the recognition of something undefinable in a draw, but also simultaneously not objectively feeling a draw. There shall be a recognition, though.
CATHY: Have I met a focus of my essence in this real life reality right here?
ELIAS: No; although your dream state is also reality, and you have faced yourself with another focus of yourself within your dream state.
CATHY: Gee, you wouldnít want to tell me which one that was, would you? (Laughing)
ELIAS: This would be an individual that you held no knowing of or that seemed to you in your dream state to be unfamiliar to you, but also felt within your dream state as if it were you; this being in what you term to be your recent past dream activity of not more than two weeks.
CATHY: Iíll have to just look up some of those dreams then!
ELIAS: This also is reality, no less than what you objectively view as your waking state.
CATHY: So did I remember that dream? Did I write that dream down?
CATHY: Oh, okay. (Pause)
VICKI: Iím going to ask another question since everybodyís so quiet. About a month ago, for about two weeks, I had a frequent experience in the evenings in which all of a sudden everything would start spinning really fast. I wasnít spinning, but everything else was. I attempted several things because it was pretty intense. For example, I attempted to focus on an object, which would only make that particular object spin even faster, so that didnít work very well. I attempted to move into the experience, which intensified the feeling greatly and I thought maybe I would become ill. I finally discovered that if I just laid down and checked out and went to sleep, I was okay. This happened to me a lot for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of dropped off. I discovered just recently that Mary has begun to have a couple of these experiences in the last few days, so Iím curious if you can explain to me if sheís having the same experience that I was having, and what those experiences are indicative of?
ELIAS: Now, as you have offered yourself the beginning experience and you inquire, I shall offer you, Lawrence, information to be acknowledging of you. Be it not curious to you, this essence making reference to your extraterrestrials recently? You have begun the movement that you have sought out for much of your time framework. Michael, in automatic response within your twin action, also begins to engage this action in supportiveness of your movement and effort. This action is a direct allowance of yourself, objectively within waking state, to be connecting with another dimension; and in this, you must allow yourself to travel through these dimensions. Therefore, you have created a beginning, but you continue to hold very tightly to your objective grasp within this focus. In this, you begin slightly the experience of moving inter-dimensionally through space, but you are not quite allowing the accomplishment of this. Therefore, you engage the same action as you normally choose, and you disengage your objective awareness. This is to be acknowledged within your movement, for you have chosen to be beginning engaging this action as opposed to creating seizures.
VICKI: So by going to sleep, Iím stopping the action?
ELIAS: Correct, and allowing the same subjective engagement as you allow within your seizures.
VICKI: Okay, I understand that. So the initial impulse to move into the experience, so to speak, would be helpful.
ELIAS: I express to you that you may choose this action, although I also express to you caution in swift movement, for you are beginning. Therefore, allow yourself your ease in movement into this action, and not be forcing yourself into areas that you are not ready to be viewing presently. You have begun a movement. Acknowledge yourself in this and be accepting of this, and do not be exercising your impatience to be creating of another situation that you frighten yourself with. Although there is no hurtfulness or threateningness within the engagement of the experience that you choose to be connecting with, the movement into this area inter-dimensionally objectively is very, very unfamiliar. Very few individuals within physical focus within this dimension have engaged this action to what you may view as successfully. Just as I have expressed to you both in the element of your dream mission, it may be accomplished, but very few individuals within this physical dimension have accomplished this previously.
VICKI: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome. Be accepting and not overwhelming yourself.
VICKI: Iím pretty good at not overwhelming myself!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Although I shall continue to be inquiring as to your progress with your extraterrestrials! (Pause) Are you wishing of more questions this day?
CATHY: Well, I have one more. Was it on the beach that I saw the other focus of myself?
CATHY: Okay. (Pause)
ELIAS: Very well. We shall be disengaging this day, and on the morrow I shall be engaging you within information of essence family counterparts in continuing our subject matter. I express to you all this day, be trusting, be accepting, and I offer to you great affection. Until the morrow, to you all, au revoir!
Elias departs at 4:15 PM.
Vicís note: The time of day noted in each session is taken from the time displayed on the videotape. The times noted in this session are slightly off, as the battery in the camcorder died on the way to the session. Unofficial information?
