“The Measurement of Self”

“Chapter Focuses”

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Tom (Malhai).

Elias arrives at 12:21 PM. (Arrival time is 14 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

TOM: Good morning!

ELIAS: We meet again!

TOM: Yes, I guess an impulse that I had. I missed the other day. There’s some kind of imagery there.

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Allowing yourself more of a time framework of preparation.

TOM: Yes, I guess I’m sure that is. I don’t have a lot of questions today, but I guess I thought we’d expand on ... my first question is my orientation, I guess. I see myself as soft. Is this correct? (Pause)

ELIAS: Yes, this would be correct.

TOM: And Jeneph’s orientation? (Pause) I see her as common.

ELIAS: I shall express to you, you are correct, in that this individual holds the orientation of common. But I shall also express to you that this individual has allowed for a capacity in the area of interpretation and assimilation of the differences of language between different orientations, and has allowed the expression of an individual capacity to be accepting of the differences in languages between soft AND intermediate and her interaction and her own orientation of common. Are you understanding?

TOM: Yes, I am, and I guess I see that very much. A question from Jeneph is, “Why am I not receiving the attention I think I deserve?” (Pause)

ELIAS: I shall express that this question in actuality applies not merely to this individual but to other individuals also, and serves as an example of how you may be, as an individual within physical focus, expressing two very different elements simultaneously within your reality, holding two different expressions, two different directions, so to speak, in the subjective and objective awarenesses.

Now; let me also offer, within clarity:

I am not expressing a difference in the manner that the objective holds one direction and that the subjective holds a different direction, but that each of the subjective and objective hold two directions simultaneously, and this creates an element of conflict.

In this objectively, in like manner to subjectively, the objective awareness holds the direction of attention in an outward expression of thought and emotion of, “I feel and I think I deserve attention in a certain direction and in a certain capacity,” meaning a certain type of expression.

But also objectively, there is held an awareness that there is an element within [self] that is in conflict with the first expression. The individual expresses outwardly that they value themselves, that they view themselves as holding worth, and therefore there is a justification expressed, in that there may be an expectation of expression offered to them by other individuals. Are you following thus far?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: Very good. In this, she – as other individuals – expresses to self, “I deserve this type of interaction. I deserve this type of attention. I am worthy of this expression.” But there is also an expression of question: “If I am deserving and worthy of these types of expressions, why shall I not be receiving what I am deserving of?”

Now; the question element of the awareness is the expression of the doubt, and the doubt is the expression of the underlying element that is in conflict with the surface element, and the underlying element is the question as to the value and the worth of self. This becomes in conflict with the outward expression, and therefore the individual creates a situation in which they are not perceiving that they are receiving in the manner that they desire.

Now; this is key, for we are addressing to the perception of the individual. It may not necessarily be that they are not in actuality receiving or that there is not a projection of energy in the manner that they wish to be receiving, but through their perception, they are not perceiving that they are receiving it in the manner that they wish to be receiving it. Are you following thus?

TOM: Yes.

ELIAS: Very well. In this, there is also a like expression occurring subjectively. The difference between the subjective and the objective is the proportion.

In the objective, what holds the attention more strongly is the outward expression, the thoughts and the emotional expressions, the assessment of the individual. Underlying is the less obvious element, and this is the conflicting element in which the individual is questioning their own value and worth and their own deservedness of these types of expressions.

Subjectively, it is the reverse. The same expressions are occurring, but in reverse proportion. Subjectively, the underlying is the more obvious and holds more of the attention. The outward expression of the objective is also held subjectively, but this, in proportion, holds less attention with the subjective awareness.

Therefore, what is being created is the responsiveness to the combination of the energy which is projected inwardly, objectively in the underlying element, the underlying belief, which we have designated as the element with less proportion of attention objectively, coupled with the more proportionate attention subjectively in the same direction of the questioning and the doubt. This becomes what is manifest.

Now; let me also express to you, this becomes confusing many times to individuals, for they are viewing the surface expression. They are viewing what they perceive they are creating, and what they perceive that they are creating is the direction of their thoughts and their emotion, for within your beliefs, you direct your attention and you think to yourselves that what you concentrate upon within thoughts and within wants is what you shall create within your reality.

This becomes a very confusing area for many, many individuals.

I express to you, yes, you do create what you concentrate upon, but this is not to say that you are creating what you concentrate upon within thoughts or wants, but that you shall create what you concentrate upon in energy and beliefs in more proportion.

Therefore, in analogy, if you hold two cups, and one cup holds one-quarter full of water and the other cup holds three-quarters full of water, but the one-quarter cup is boiling, your attention moves to the movement of the boiling water, not to the calm of the three-quarters of the water. But the three-quarters of the water is a greater volume, and the greater volume holds more influence in what shall be creating your reality.

The one-quarter of boiling water is the outward expression, the thoughts and the emotional expression, the want. The three-quarters of the calm or not agitated water holds more strength, for it holds more volume of energy, and this creates more influence.

Therefore, although the expression outwardly may appear very strong, what is created is the actualization of the volume of the belief.

In this particular situation, the volume of the belief holds uncertainty in the actual expression of value and worth. This is what creates the conflict, and although the individual may express outwardly that they believe absolutely, without question, that they are a worthy individual, that they value themselves, and that they are deserving of certain expressions, they shall create a reality which exposes the true assessment of self, for you shall create within your reality what you genuinely believe within you.

Therefore, if you are not receiving what you express you deserve to be receiving, you may not be perceiving that you are acquiring what you want, for you are creating a reality that mirrors what you genuinely believe within your assessment of self.

Therefore, you may express to this individual that in turning attention to self and genuinely evaluating the worthiness of self and genuinely examining her individual perception – which in this situation is key – she may also allow herself to move into areas in which the wants may be actualized, for it is not a question of what is deserved. It is a question of the want, and the want is a specific type of interaction and expression with regard to other individuals, but she shall draw to herself what she is projecting. It is a mirror action. You all draw to yourselves what you project from self.

TOM: Yes, that’s an excellent answer.

I have a question about Karen. I don’t have her essence name – you may have it – but if you have any words of advice for her present health difficulties? The doctors cannot find anything wrong with her, but she’s going through very extreme difficulties. Would you have anything that you could tell her or advise her with? (Pause)

ELIAS: In this situation, there is also a parallel, but manifest within a different type of expression. This also is a manifestation of addressing to the worth and value of self.

Now; let me deviate momentarily and express to you that this presently, within this now time framework, is becoming a very large expression with very many individuals, and I anticipate we shall be entering discussions frequently in this area with many individuals, for within this wave in consciousness that is occurring presently, as I have expressed previously, the aspects of gender and orientation are only two aspects of this particular wave. This particular belief system holds many aspects that you directly engage and are interactive with on what you may term to be a daily basis.

In this, a very large aspect of this particular belief system which individuals are drawing surfacely and to their objective attention presently is the element of perception: how you each view yourselves and how you assess yourselves and how you interact with other individuals and with yourselves.

Another very large aspect is coupled with an aspect of the belief system of duplicity, which as I have expressed previously, that particular belief system intertwines itself with all other belief systems, and it is intertwined with this belief system also.

In this, the other aspect that is being addressed to presently is that of the measurement of self, the worth and the value of self.

Now; in this situation with this individual, it is addressed in a different manner – the expression is offered differently – but it addresses to the same aspect of worth and value, and this couples with other aspects which move in the direction of wants and of what YOU perceive as needs.

Be aware, I am specific as I express that this is what you PERCEIVE you need, for as I have stated previously, in actuality there is no element that you need within your physical focus, with the [exception of the] conceptual or figurative need of the acceptance of self, but even the acceptance of self is not necessarily a need.

But in addressing to this physical situation, the expression is created as an avenue to be gaining attention with self and to be noticing and allowing a recognition of how elements may be created within her reality and energy may be manipulated quite efficiently, in a very REAL expression – regardless of the identification of other individuals – to be offering what is a perceived need of nurturing, of attention, of sympathy, of understanding, offered not merely by other individuals, but also by herself.

For there is an awareness that there are certain expressions that she is not offering to herself that are perceived needs, and in this, she creates a situation of physical expressions and affectingnesses WHICH ARE QUITE REAL, and this draws her attention to self and allows her the opportunity to view herself.

Her ability to be manipulating energy in whichever manner she is so choosing allows her the ability to view the power that she holds in manipulating her own energy, and the reality of it.

Are you understanding?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: Therefore, if she is allowing herself to be turning her attention to self and her expressions, her creations, you may express to her from myself, in this recognition, she may also allow herself to evaluate: if she holds the ability to be creating her reality strongly in these types of expressions physically, she also holds the ability to be expressing energy and manipulating energy in other types of expressions ... and already is!

Now; the parallel – and this also is key – is that she is creating a physical expression that other individuals do not see, in a manner of speaking. This is the expression of energy projected outwardly, that she may turn and she may also view the same expression in the reverse that she creates in OTHER areas – not physically, but in behavior – in which SHE does not see.

TOM: Great. I’ll pass that on.

I have forty-four focuses of Malhai that I connect easily with or am able to connect easily with. The other focuses of this essence ... would the tone quality or tone name translate different objectively?

ELIAS: No. They shall all be translated with the same essence tone.

Let me express to you, in this identification of differences within these focuses, there are certain focuses that magnate to each other and that are easily accessible to each other. There are other focuses that appear objectively to be more removed. They are all encompassed by essence, and I shall also express that they may all be accessed. It is merely a situation in which certain focuses may hold slightly more difficult expressions in energy to be accessing objectively those focuses.

This is a similar action to counterpart action between essences. Therefore, just as you may be interactive and you may be connecting objectively with certain counterparts, you may be creating that type of action with more ease with some counterparts, and you may find that objectively you may hold more difficulty with other types of counterparts. This is a similar type of expression.

But as to your questioning of these focuses holding a difference in tonal quality in relation to essence, no, they do not.

TOM: So the total number of forty-four are those easily connected with. How many does Malhai have in this physical dimension? (Pause)

ELIAS: One hundred sixty-eight.

TOM: Okay. Let’s see. You had mentioned chapter focuses. Could you explain somewhat what a chapter focus is?

ELIAS: Yes. I shall express to you that a chapter focus is that in which the focus moves in the direction of a specific expression in conjunction with other focuses.

Now; in this, in like manner to a story in a book in which there are segments of the book that are divided into chapters, one chapter follows another chapter and is a continuation, so to speak, of another chapter.

In like manner, there are at times focuses created by essence which move in the same direction. Essence creates a series, so to speak, of focuses to be accomplishing a specific direction which may not necessarily be accomplished in the linear time framework of one focus. Therefore, there are several focuses that are designated to be accomplishing a specific direction, so to speak.

Now; within essence, these chapter focuses may not necessarily be accomplished in chapters in linear fashion.

What I am expressing to you in this is that your chapter one may occur in one century, and objectively you may hold the thought process that your subsequent chapter would be accomplished in a subsequent century in linear time, but this is not necessarily the direction that essence shall accomplish these chapter focuses.

You may hold one focus as chapter one within your sixteenth century, and your chapter two may be accomplished in your eighteenth century, and your chapter three may be accomplished in your fifth century.

Now; one chapter focus, generally speaking, is designated as the climax, so to speak, or the director of these chapters, in like manner to a book.

In this, your present time framework, in conjunction with the shift in consciousness, is the directing focus. It is the climactic focus, so to speak. Therefore, the other focuses that are participating as chapter focuses are all focuses that lend to this focus in creating a direction. Are you understanding thus far?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: In this, there are future focuses that also lend to the accomplishment of this present time-framework focus which are chapter focuses, but are outside of the linear succession. Therefore, the past – or what you perceive to be the past – focuses are previous in chapters to this focus, but the future focus is also previous to this focus in the succession of the accomplishment.

Are you understanding?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: Very good. Therefore, the accomplishments that are created within the future focus also lend to the accomplishment in this focus in conjunction with this shift in consciousness.

Now; be understanding that these other focuses do not hold an objective awareness of this shift in consciousness in the terms that you understand it. They are not experiencing a reality in which they are moving into a type of objective awareness in conjunction with this shift in consciousness, for it is not an insertion into their time framework.

The future focus holds an identification of the significance of the shift in consciousness, but also in a very different manner, for the shift is consciousness is already accomplished, and therefore it is already the known and accepted reality. Therefore, this reality that you experience presently is not viewed in the same manner. It is viewed in more similar manner to the past focuses.

As the past focuses lend energy to the future, in their terms, they look to the future in their perception of speculation and belief systems of what the future holds, so to speak – predictions, prophecies, and projections. This is speculation, in their perception.

But in like manner, the future focus views the past – which is you – in speculation also, for the reality of the future focus is already within the design of the shift. Therefore, the acceptance of the belief systems is already accomplished, and the comprehension of holding belief systems is very small objectively.

Are you understanding?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: Therefore, it also is a chapter focus which lends energy in like manner to the past focuses and in the direction of this focus within this time framework, of lending energy to the accomplishment of this shift presently, and this particular focus being the final chapter, so to speak, in YOUR chapter focuses, in like manner to Lawrence and Michael. They also participate in chapter focuses presently, and this particular time framework is the final chapter of those chapter focuses.

TOM: Okay, so the direction would be in lending energy to the shift in consciousness?

ELIAS: Correct.

TOM: And so my intent would be in that direction also.


TOM: Okay. Could you tell me how many chapter focuses Malhai has, and I can explore some of them? I guess I’m aware of Alex.

ELIAS: In conjunction with this shift in consciousness, five.

TOM: Five?

ELIAS: That is inclusive of this focus.

TOM: Okay, and the future focus....

ELIAS: Correct.

TOM: His name appears to start with an “M,” but I just can’t quite get it – Marak, or something like that?

ELIAS: Marek.

TOM: Marek?

ELIAS: Correct.

TOM: And it’s the twenty-first century into the twenty-second century that this focus lives?

ELIAS: You are correct.

TOM: So if I stay with this physical body long enough, I can meet him! (They both crack up)

Let’s see. There is another question on orientation. It appears to me that there’s groups or categories within each category of common, soft, and intermediate. Is this a correct perception, or what am I viewing here? The crossover between the three?

ELIAS: No, not necessarily. What you are viewing is the individuality of the expressions.

There are three orientations, and there are no crossovers with these orientations, and there are no subdivisions, so to speak, of these orientations, and as I have expressed previously, although it is not impossible to be altering or changing your orientation within one particular focus, you also do not create this within one particular focus, one reason being it is unnecessary, for you are experiencing all of these orientations simultaneously.

This would be requiring of a great objective awareness of how you are creating your reality, and also would be requiring of a tremendous expression of energy which is unnecessarily expressed.

But as to your question, within the expressions of these three orientations, you also involve many, many, many individuals. There are millions and millions and millions of individuals within your physical dimension, and in this, each of those individuals – although holding to the creation and expression of one of these three orientations – holds their own unique and individual personality expression, and in this, they hold their individual perception, which creates their individual reality.

Therefore, we may speak in generalizations in the area of orientations to be offering you more information as to what you have created within your physical focus, within your physical dimension, but also be aware that you each hold unique individuality, and therefore, although you may be creating of a collective reality, that collective reality is comprised of all of the individual realities.

This be the reason that we are moving into the area of discussions concerning no absolutes presently, for each individual holds differences within perception, and your perceptions are what create your actual reality, and it is highly individualized. This is how you have created this physical dimension.

Therefore, what you are allowing yourself to view are the differences in expressions with individuals and that this may vary in conjunction with the expressions of orientations, for be remembering also, each of you incorporates alignments with different aspects of belief systems. Individuals align more strongly in some areas than other areas with different aspects of belief systems.

Therefore, as example, within the orientation of soft, I may express to you that individuals holding this orientation of soft move in the direction of responsiveness to mass events in certain manners, generally speaking. This is an explanation of the expression of the orientation, but the individual may also create another variation of this expression.

One individual holding the orientation soft may respond outwardly and within thought and emotion very strongly and quite expressively in reaction and response with all mass events. Another individual with this same orientation may temper their outward expression, and this would be dependent upon the influence of their individual belief systems.

In this, I may express to you, you may look to a very objective example between yourself and Michael.

Michael, holding the gender of female and the belief systems that are held in coupling with that gender, may allow himself to be much more outwardly expressive in responsiveness to mass events than you may necessarily allow yourself, holding the gender of male and all of the alignments of aspects of beliefs that couple with that. Therefore, the individual expressions may differ.

Inwardly, there is a tremendous similarity. Inwardly, your responses are very similar. The draw that is felt is very similar. The attention to the expressions of all individuals, the fascination with other individuals, the involvement with other individuals inwardly is very similar. The outward expression may vary, but even within the outward expressions in many areas, individuals generally hold to similar expressions.

I am merely expressing to you that you may hold the awareness objectively that you each are creating your reality individually and your expressions are also quite individual, and therefore your inward responses may be the same, but your outward expression may be different.

TOM: Okay, so that can be countless, since we’re all unique, in a manner.

ELIAS: Quite!

TOM: I have a question about music. As you probably are aware in reading my energy, I’ve been composing some music, joyful noise as we call it, and I have a question about how it affects or if it affects essence tone. In a manner of speaking, I view that it can break up belief systems, so to speak. Different types of music affect....

ELIAS: I express to you that tonal qualities may be manipulated in many more directions than individuals generally perceive objectively.

In like manner to many elements of your physical reality, there is much more available to you in what you may be manipulating in energy than you generally objectively perceive, and this also is an element of the point of this shift in consciousness, that you may continue to widen your awareness and allow yourselves to view more of your expansiveness and actualize more of your creativity.

As to your direction in your creation objectively in the area of music and the tonal qualities, I express to you that each tone holds a vibrational quality, in like manner to color. In this vibrational quality, you may incorporate energy and be manipulating energy in conjunction with the energy of the vibrational quality, for it is energy also, and you may be allowing yourself an avenue to be moving into an expression of addressing to the aspects of belief systems.

This once again may be redirected into the area of your game, and I may express once again, there is much more information contained within this game than all of you realize! You hold many clues in all of the information that you have offered to yourselves, in areas that you may be manipulating energy in conjunction with essence families, in conjunction with tone and color and vibrational qualities and all of the elements of your objective reality, and in this, also allowing yourselves the ability to be widening your awareness and moving into the acceptance of your belief systems.

Do not confuse yourselves. You are not “breaking up” your belief systems. You are not eliminating them. You are merely addressing to the aspects that are contained within them and that are limiting and creating blocks within your reality. Therefore, as you are ACCEPTING of them, you also are removing your limitations and your blocks. Are you understanding?

TOM: Yes, I am.

ELIAS: Very good.

TOM: Okay. I think you’ve answered a lot of questions ... for me thinking I didn’t have any! (Elias laughs) Sena will be talking to you tomorrow, and I guess I’ll send my greetings through you to her.

ELIAS: Very well, and I shall be offering your relay. (Chuckling)

TOM: Okay. I guess the only thing I have right now ... I think of lots of things as you speak when we’re speaking together, but I think we’ve covered just about everything except for maybe some essence names and families ... Helen’s essence name. I believe her family would be Sumafi. (Pause)

ELIAS: Sumafi/Milumet.

TOM: Pardon me?

ELIAS: Sumafi, alignment Milumet.

TOM: Okay.

ELIAS: Essence name, Anne; A-N-N-E.

TOM: Interesting. Chelsea? (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence name, Evia; E-V-I-A. (ae’via) (Pause) Are you wishing for essence families?

TOM: Yes.

ELIAS: Essence family, Sumari.

TOM: That was my guess.

ELIAS: Alignment, Ilda.

TOM: Karen, and I would guess her to be Sumafi.

ELIAS: Correct; alignment, Zuli. (Pause)

Essence tone ... I express to you that this is not affecting of the essence families which are offered presently, but this essence has moved into the action of fragmentation, and this particular focus is of the fragmented essence; therefore, in your physical terms, the new essence. Essence name, Trae; T-R-A-E. (tray)

TOM: Okay, and one last one for now – Tom, Karen’s husband. I would guess him as Sumafi also. (Pause)

ELIAS: You are correct. Alignment, Milumet. Essence name, Lise;


TOM: And that’s pronounced “leese?”

ELIAS: Correct.

TOM: Okay. What essence is Trae fragmented from? (Pause)

ELIAS: This would be a mergence of essence Lazour, essence Katrina, essence Mystof, essence Zelt. This is a mergence in combination which has created the allowance of a fragmentation of this particular essence, holding certain qualities of each of these essences.

TOM: That’s interesting. I guess I’m opening new awarenesses for me. (Elias chuckles) I think that’s all the questions I have today. I have one that I probably will send to Sena, if she has time to ask you tomorrow.

ELIAS: Very well. I offer to you this day great affection and much encouragement in your continuation of your investigations. I express to you, in friendship, a very loving au revoir.

TOM: And to you, my friend.

Elias departs at 1:33 PM.
