“Personal Responsibility Issues”
“The Guise of Helpfulness”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Mike (Mikah).
Elias arrives at 2:40 PM. (Arrival time is 10 seconds.)
ELIAS: Greetings, Mikah!
MIKE: Greetings, Elias!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) We meet again!
MIKE: Yes, we do ... as if you ever left! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha!
MIKE: Okay. I have more questions than I probably can ask today, but I do have many, so I’ll get right to it. Candace wants me to ask, are either of the two jobs she was presented with most probable for her, and is she in her most efficient mode, as she terms it?
ELIAS: (Laughing) Interesting terminology – “most efficient mode.” Well! Let me express, is this to be likened to, is she upon the right channel? (Chuckling)
MIKE: (Laughing) That’s what I would probably venture to say.
ELIAS: Ha ha! You may express to Candace that she is creating her movement quite efficiently, allowing herself within this time period to be noticing and to be evaluating her interaction and recognizing the differences in perceptions, allowing herself also the expression of frustration in this noticing of differences of perception, and also recognizing how this may be triggering of automatic behaviors within herself. At times, she allows herself to be quite easily moving in the direction of noticing and not reacting, but within other time frameworks, she offers herself the expression of reaction, and in this, express to her that those moments are the opportunity to be recognizing the triggers. And therefore, I express yes, she is moving in an efficient manner presently.
As to the situation of employment and more or less probable, you may express to her that I hold an awareness that she already holds this answer within herself. One of these presentments of employment holds much more probability than the other, but there is reservation in both within her.
MIKE: Yes, okay. Now, what we were talking about before with the reaction thing, is this what caused her reaction the other night, when she constricted herself pretty much and she felt like she was gonna pass out?
MIKE: Yes, okay. Alright. Okay, I wanted to ask about my final focus. Has the transaction been completed yet?
MIKE: Yes? So I am, then?
MIKE: Okay, that’s good to know! The occupation that you and I have spoken about I believe on two other occasions, with myself looking at it as being fun and creative and not necessarily viewing it as work, I’ve been getting imagery of web designing, and I was wondering if this imagery would be pertaining to myself answering myself as to what it’s gonna be about, or is the web designing imagery pertaining to something else?
ELIAS: This is partial imagery in this direction. This allows you to be exploring new avenues of creativity and the incorporation of fun, also allowing you the validation that you may be creating of objective expressions that shall offer you, in your physical terms, financial gain, but also incorporate pleasure and fun and not appear to be work, so to speak.
In this, you are presently allowing yourself the exploration of new avenues that offer you the information as to what we have spoken [of] many times, in allowing yourself to be incorporating your creativity, pleasure, and fun, and also incorporating what you WANT to be creating. This is the avenue of effortlessness, of which we have spoken many times.
MIKE: So basically, I wouldn’t be distracting myself if I were to find a class to learn about it or pick up a couple of books on it?
MIKE: Okay, alright. Then that one kind of goes along with this one, ‘cause you touched on it. You answered a question that I didn’t think you’d answer for myself, had I asked it. (Elias grins) So, is it in my most probable probabilities that I will be creating what you term to be much comfort in the area of finances, or will the whole monetary system be gone by that time?
ELIAS: I shall express to you, Mikah, that you do move in the direction of creating what you physically term to be monetary comforts, and within your time framework in your present probabilities, it shall not be within the framework of physical linear time that you have disembarked from your reality of exchange.
I have expressed previously that this is one of the elements of this shift in consciousness that shall be effected in your reality, but this shall not be completed and actualized until the final throes of the insertion of this shift in its entirety into your reality. Therefore, as I have stated previously, this shall be accomplished – if continuing the movement that it presently engages – within the third quarter of your new century.
MIKE: Okay. Then the next one that kind of goes along with that is, am I beginning or have I moved out of my distractions that we talked about last time?
ELIAS: You are beginning to be moving out of this direction and allowing yourself to be incorporating new avenues, and allowing yourself to be exploring your own creativities and different types of expressions that may be accomplishing in what you term to be effortless. You are creating exploration in this area presently.
MIKE: Then I guess along those same lines, ‘cause I’m imagining Candace’s and my situation here monetarily, I imagine that also is imagery of ourselves distracting ourselves and whatsuch. So I’m assuming now that since I myself am beginning to move out of my distractions, the situation will no longer be as stuck as it has been.
ELIAS: Correct. Now; I offer to you one more element of information in relation to underlying belief systems that you hold individually.
In this, you do move in a direction of expression of holding personal responsibility with relation to Candace, and in this, in the relationship that you hold in this physical focus of son and mother, you align quite strongly, underlyingly, of care-taking in relation to mother.
In this area, I address to you that you may be creating obstacles within yourself also, for as this becomes expressed objectively, it distracts you from your attention upon self, and this is also creating of a lack of motivation objectively in other areas of your movement.
In this, as we have spoken previously of your distraction in the area of objectifying your wants, this particular issue enters in with your expression in this area objectively.
In this, you are presently moving yourself into areas of exploration of your own reality and your own creativity. Do not be distracted in the area of personal responsibility.
You are creating your reality and Candace is creating her reality, and although you may be in relationship with each other objectively and subjectively, you are not holding responsibility for each other. Candace also reinforces this issue, as she holds a similar personal responsibility in reverse, in relation to yourself. Therefore, you feed each other’s issues.
In this, as you allow yourselves to become aware of these issues, recognizing that in actuality you hold responsibility within self and for no other individual physically focused, and that your choices are individual to yourself ... and although you may be influencing of another individual, be remembering, you may only be influencing of another individual if they are in agreement and allowing your influence.
Therefore, concern yourself with self and your direction, and be addressing to this issue in the area of beliefs in conjunction with the relationship of son and mother.
MIKE: Okay. Thank you for that.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
MIKE: Okay. I have a question about focuses I share with other people. One of them I want to know about is, I have a friend named Kim, and I’ve known her for like a while, and we’ve had like a really strange relationship objectively back and forth, and I was wondering if we hold other focuses together, number one, and if we do, could you give me some examples? (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, you hold other focuses with each other. Within one focus, you hold the relationship of partners within marriage within the physical location of Denmark. Within another focus, you hold the relationship to each other of brothers. You may be offering yourself exploration of these focuses, as always! (Grinning)
MIKE: Yes, of course.
ELIAS: HA HA!
MIKE: I have an impression with either ... my first impression was of Lacy, but it may also be Jeremy. Would one of them be one of my siblings in the Stefan George focus? (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes; Opan.
MIKE: Was he my brother or sister?
ELIAS: Female; sister.
MIKE: Sister, okay. Okay, with my sister, I’ve never asked. I know we hold the focus where I was her mother in another focus, but I was wondering if we do in fact hold other focuses together, and if we do, if you can give me a number of how many focuses we’ve shared. (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, you hold other focuses with this individual, numbering eight.
MIKE: Okay, and with my brother-in-law, Patrick, ‘cause I know he was my husband in that same focus with my sister, I was wondering if we hold other focuses together, and if so, how many? (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, numbering eleven.
MIKE: Wow. Okay, now I have a couple of questions about focuses of mine. One, do I hold an Irish focus named Shamus? (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
MIKE: Okay. With Santiago ... ‘cause I’ve gotten a lot of imagery with macaws, and it never dawned on me. They kept saying they lived in South America, and then automatically I connected with Santiago, and I was wondering if within the village that he lives in, does he interact with them, or does he own them or feed them or something?
ELIAS: There is interaction with these creatures, although he is not owning of them, in your terms. He holds an awareness of the freedom of creation that all creatures hold within this dimension, and merely is appreciating of the beauty that is displayed within these great birds, and in this is offering an expression of friendship, which lends energy to you in offering you the expression of acceptance of the aspects of beliefs within your focus, as they also are quite colorful birds!
MIKE: (Laughing) How poetic! My focus Sonja, has she disengaged?
ELIAS: Not yet within this present now, but is moving quite close to this choice.
MIKE: Okay, I have a question about my scalp. Since I can remember, like more than six or seven years ago, I’ve developed what we call dandruff, and I can’t get rid of it. I’ve come to an acceptance of it, you know, it’s like it’s just there, but it almost seems like it’s gotten worse. It’s like every time I take off my hat, it’s a snowstorm, and so I was wondering what the imagery was with that.
ELIAS: And look to yourself, Mikah, and your time framework, and for how very long, in linear terms, you have been moving in the direction of analyzation and rationalization of all of your reality!
This is the objective physical imagery that you create for yourself to be drawing attention to that which you view as your physical head, which houses your physical brain, which you associate with rationale and thought process and your evaluation and analyzation of every element of your reality, and as you allow yourself to be moving into acceptance of simplicity of your reality and not necessarily complicating all of your reality with your great rationale, you may be altering of your expression with your physical head!
MIKE: (Laughing) Okay! That’s interesting imagery that I seem to create for myself.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Quite creative!
MIKE: I was wondering, I’ve gotten a lot of imagery – I haven’t seen it since Jeremy and I decided to make it a question, so I’m wondering if it still has any effect on me – of pigeons. I’ve seen this pigeon outside. I felt so bad for it ‘cause it had like a broken wing, and I’ve been going out there and feeding it, and I haven’t seen it in a while, but I’d go out there and feed it. And then we saw one when we went out somewhere also, and we were watching a movie the other night and there was a pigeon with a broken wing. So, I was wondering what the imagery is with that.
ELIAS: And this once again is imagery that you present to yourself in relation to your relationship with your mother, and in this, your automatic responsiveness to be care-taking – and justifying this action within yourself, as it is your responsibility and it is right and compassionate – and in this also, camouflaging yourself in your belief, expressing to yourself that this is good and responsible.
In this also, be remembering that another aspect of camouflage in this area is to be expressing to yourself your interconnectedness with all of your reality, and therefore reinforcing your issue in the area of personal responsibility.
Now; I offer to you, in these situations, be remembering:
Each creature, each individual, all elements within your physical dimension are comprised of consciousness and all create their reality, and each element of their reality, whether you deem this to be good or bad, is beneficial to them, for if they are not creating their value fulfillment within physical focus, they shall cease to be engaging in physical focus. Even a rock, if not creating its value fulfillment, shall disappear within your physical dimension.
Therefore, be remembering that each creature – yourselves also – within your dimension is creating of their choices and their reality, and it is not your responsibility to be creating their reality for them, although you view that you may be creating it more efficiently and “better” under the guise of helpfulness.
MIKE: Okay. This one wasn’t one I was gonna ask because I kind of assumed what part of the imagery was, but I had a dream last week, and it was very strange for me because this person that was in my dream, I never felt any kind of connection with. It was a certain teacher individual, and I was wondering if you could confirm if it was who I thought it was. (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
MIKE: I am correct. So, was this his essence interacting with me, or was this my own thought, just imagery to myself?
ELIAS: This is imagery that you have presented to yourself to offer you more information.
MIKE: Okay. I have a question ‘cause I never bothered to ask about dragons. I have a thing with dragons also, and I was wondering what the connection with that is? (Pause)
ELIAS: This, in like manner to Michael, is a recognition of other-dimensional qualities and aspects of focuses, for within other physical dimensions, these creatures hold a reality in their existence. I have expressed that they have interacted within this dimension also temporarily, but your identification and your draw to these creatures is connected to through these other-dimensional focuses more strongly.
MIKE: Okay, let me see. Give me one second. (Pause, talking to Jeremy) Yeah, it’s an interesting question Jeremy brought up. What we were talking about before, within the terms of comfort monetarily, is this gonna come out of or is it gonna have its beginnings in the avenue I’m creating with Jeremy presently?
ELIAS: You are lending energy to each other in this area, and in one respect, yes, this shall be quite influential. You shall be choosing your own individual expression of creativity and allowing yourself to be moving in that direction, but it is greatly influenced presently by Opan, and your interaction together.
MIKE: Okay. Now, I know Muriel – I believe that’s her essence name – may have a session with you next week, and I know she’s gonna ask about our interaction together and our coincidental meeting, and I was wondering, I suppose we do hold focuses together, her and I?
MIKE: Yes, okay. So I suppose our interaction together ... are we counterparts?
MIKE: Okay, alright. I’ll let her get to the details next week.
Okay, I have one more question for you, and we’re going to try it, and I guess part of my interest in doing this is, yes, parlor tricks, (Elias grins) ‘cause I find them so fascinating, with a process of ... I believe Jane Roberts termed it to be table-tipping, or maybe Vicki came up with it. Whoever came up with it, we’re gonna try it, the three of us, and I was wondering if you could give us any input besides what you gave Jim about merging with the object.
ELIAS: Merely allow yourselves to be recognizing that within this mergence of consciousness, you may be accomplishing of any element. Incorporate patience, for many times you become impatient, and you may be discontinuing the action before you are allowing yourself to be accomplishing. Therefore, I express to you, allow yourself the time framework of patience to be continuing in your endeavor within this adventure, and you shall be accomplishing. It is quite easy, in actuality!
MIKE: Okay, so again, we go with processes. My process, I would venture to say – and just let me know if this is efficient or not – would be to sit down, eyes open, and quiet ourselves first, and then just to be concentrating on the object we’re wishing to merge with.
ELIAS: If you are so choosing. It matters not. You may hold your eyes open and visually view. How shall you be assessing if your table is tipping if you are not watching? Ha ha ha ha! What be the fun in not watching and not validating your experience? This is for your amazement within your parlor tricks! Therefore, allow yourself to be physically viewing, and I am encouraging of this action.
Your concentration shall be influencing of its movement, although I express to you that it is unnecessary for you to be concentrating intensely. Your very desire and your will, in a manner of speaking, shall merge with the object, and it shall respond to your desire.
In this, allow yourself merely to merge with the object and to be in cooperation with the other individuals, recognizing that this is a cooperative effort, so to speak.
MIKE: Okay. Well, I suppose I should let you go ‘cause I do believe Mary has to jet somewhere, but I do want to ask one more thing....
ELIAS: Ha ha!
MIKE: And that is, when you drop by and you’re around or whatever ... I asked you this once before, and I don’t remember what your answer was. So what exactly is it that we’re supposed to be doing besides just noticing? I mean, if we want to ask you a question or something, are you actually gonna answer?
ELIAS: I am always responsive to you, Mikah. It is merely a question of whether you choose to be listening. (Grinning)
MIKE: Okay. (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) Alright then. I don’t know how you pronounced it in that one session, the Sumafi language thing, but hua fua....
ELIAS: Hua fua!
MIKE: That’s it! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
MIKE: I shall say good-bye, and thank you for your interaction.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome, and I express to you great affection, and I am encouraging of you to be incorporating fun, and I shall be offering encouragement in your adventure with your table-tipping! Ha ha ha! In this, I offer to you a very loving au revoir.
Elias departs at 3:16 PM.
