“The Desire for Abundance”
“The Reality of Perception”
“The Truth of Consciousness”
Participants: Mary (Michael), Jo (Aisha), and a new participant, Richard (Claude/Daum).
Elias arrives at 1:20 PM. (Arrival time is 23 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon!
JO: Hi, Elias. How are you?
ELIAS: As always!
JO: It’s nice to hear your voice! I appreciate your help today very much. I’m here with my husband, Richard, and we both have questions.
ELIAS: Very well.
JO: My biggest issue right now is that of materializing abundance effortlessly, with fun and ease. I know there are a lot of people out there enjoying their lives with ease and abundance, and they’re being the straight little sapling for me, in that respect, and I appreciate that. My desire to have this also is SO intense, because I want to free myself up to concentrate on myself and widening my awareness, and also for helping with this shift.
I want to be using my time to focus on me, on my beliefs and my issues and addressing to these, and to learning more self-trust and self-acceptance and being an example and help to others. I want my finances to materialize abundantly and effortlessly, with fun and ease, as a validation of myself and my abilities and my intent and creativity, and I want to enjoy what I’m creating and be an example to others to be creating effortlessly and enjoy it too. I don’t want to draw to myself or create experiences that will reinforce any lack of trust or acceptance of myself, and I guess I’m needing reassurance from you in this area, because I want to facilitate my movement in fun and ease, and not conflict.
So, I have set a goal date of July 1 to materialize a large sum of money in my life, because I don’t want my energy and attention to go towards going out to try to make a living, and what I’d like to know is, am I trusting and accepting myself enough to be actualizing what I want to be creating? And also, have I instigated or established a pool of probabilities in this direction I want to take? In other words, is my desire actualizing?
ELIAS: I may express to you that you are creating a line of probabilities in this direction, although I may also express to you that within this time framework and what you are creating presently, and the movement that you are engaging presently in relation to your trust of your abilities, your setting of a particular time framework in this type of action may in actuality prove to be a mirroring of the actual trust that you exhibit presently, or the lack of trust, in a manner of speaking.
I am not expressing that you are entirely lacking in trust of your abilities, for we have spoken of this situation previously and we have discussed this movement within yourself, and you ARE actualizing holding your attention within the now more than you have previously, and you have offered yourself information to be validating of yourself and to be lessening the element of fear, and therefore reinforcing your expression of trust.
BUT... within this present now, this type of action that you are attempting to be incorporating – in setting a specific date, so to speak, for the materialization of a particular manifestation of this type – may in actuality serve more as a disappointment than the fulfillment of the desire or the want.
Now; I shall express to you that your desire is strong, but the creation of these types of goals, as you have stated, are in actuality movement that you and other individuals create in setting before you a type of test, in a manner of speaking. What you are creating is the testing of your abilities in objective terms, and IF they are materializing, which is your hope, you shall allow yourself to be reinforcing yourself objectively in your expression of trust.
ELIAS: If they are not materializing, you reinforce your discounting of self.
ELIAS: But your reinforcement of trust in this type of expression is based upon what we may term to be parlor tricks and surface manifestations. Therefore, it is not an actual expression of trust of self and your abilities, for regardless that you may create this type of manifestation ... and I am not expressing that you do not hold the ability to BE creating this type of manifestation, for you do. But this type of creation – this type of goal – is in itself a discounting of your trust of self, for in a genuine expression of trust of self, it is unnecessary to be testing your ability, for you hold a knowing of your ability, and there is incorporated no doubt of what you may be manifesting.
Now; your presentment to me in this questioning is a request for reinforcement in relation to your test.
As I have stated previously, probabilities are actualized within the moment. They are not actualized in the future and thusly you approach the future and create the materialization of that probability. This is the creation that you incorporate in your physical dimension that offers you the freedom of choice and allows you to not lock yourselves into any particular probability that you may be creating. You hold the ability to be altering probabilities in every moment, regardless of how absolute they appear in your reality, for there are no absolutes.
In this, you are requesting a projection of speculation as to what you may or may not be materializing in relation to your goal futurely, and I express to you that the response to this line of questioning, if answered in absolutes, would be quite unrealistic.
JO: I understand.
ELIAS: Now; I may express to you what you are creating NOW, which is influencing of what you may be creating in probabilities futurely in relation to the goal that you have set, and in this, I offer to you the response that if you are setting your attention in the direction of the goal and projecting your attention futurely, you shall most probably be incorporating disappointment, although as I have stated, this is not an absolute.
But within the most probable probabilities, your manifestation of this type may not necessarily materialize IF you continue to be projecting your attention futurely and holding your attention upon this date and this particular, specific action of materialization, for in creating that type of projection of your attention futurely, you no longer are paying attention to what you are creating NOW, and what you are creating now in some manners may be contrary to your want of the materialization futurely.
This is the reason that it is important that you allow yourself to be paying attention to what you are creating within the now and hold your attention within the now, for this IS in actuality what creates what you perceive to be the future. It also creates what you perceive to be the past. All of your reality is created within the now, but if you are not paying attention to what you are creating within the now, you also reinforce the beliefs that discount you and your trust and your abilities. Are you understanding?
JO: I think you’re saying that if in the now I’m thinking I don’t have, but hoping that I will in the future, that I’m creating not having in the future.
ELIAS: You are correct.
JO: So, it would be more efficient for me to keep my attention in the now and feel my abundance in the now.
JO: Okay. I think I understand that. I guess it’s just that my desire is so very intense that I even make myself afraid that the intensity of my desire will push it away.
ELIAS: I am understanding, and this is what I am expressing to you presently. Pay attention to what you are expressing NOW, for this holds significance. Listen to your words presently. You already incorporate a fear of your own intensity of your desire, that you shall not be manifesting what you want.
ELIAS: THAT is the strength of your beliefs and THAT influences and motivates your perception, and your perception creates your reality, and it creates it within the now. Therefore, regardless of how you are projecting your attention futurely, you are already creating the action NOW.
JO: I understand. Have I created a significant expression of movement towards my acceptance and trust of self since we last spoke?
ELIAS: You ARE paying attention more, as you yourself are aware, for you are allowing yourself to be holding your attention more within the now, and therefore not projecting yourself pastly and creating the element of fear in association with past creations, and you are not projecting yourself AS intensely futurely, in anticipation of what you may be....
JO: I need more practice, right? (Laughing)
ELIAS: (Grinning) Now; I shall express to you in agreement that your leaning in the direction of projecting in anticipation of future is moving still in some element of intensity, but you have been practicing in the expression of not holding your attention so intensely concerning past, which is what you may view to be movement in practicing.
These are familiar expressions within your reality, be remembering. Therefore, they are automatic. It is not automatic to be holding your attention within the now. It is unfamiliar to be holding your attention within the now. Therefore, you incorporate practice, and you ARE incorporating this practice.
JO: I feel better emotionally when I do that, when I’m able to do that.
ELIAS: It allows you more of an expression of freedom, for you create a tension within your energy each time you are projecting your attention past or future, and in holding your attention within the now, you offer to yourself much more of an expression of relaxation, and this also creates an environment of freedom.
JO: I feel like I’m not holding onto my energy as much as I used to. I’m wanting to allow new expressions and aspects of myself to emerge, especially those pertaining to new ways of creating and manifesting in ease. Do you think I’m allowing for that at this time?
ELIAS: Yes. You are addressing to your beliefs and you are paying attention to movement in trust and acceptance, and this creates the movement that you are desiring of.
JO: That’s good to know. When I spoke to you last time, Elias, you cautioned me that the incident on May 5th held great opportunity for judgment, and I got to thinking and I thought, well, if there’s great opportunity for judgment, then there’s also great opportunity for me to practice acceptance, and I feel like I’ve really been working on that, and my husband and I are curious as to why we created that in our experience.
ELIAS: I may express to you that all that you create within your experiences in this physical dimension is beneficial to you. All that you create offers you an opportunity to be exploring more of yourselves in an objective manner, which is also the action of this shift in consciousness.
Now; as to your incorporation of the actions and events that you speak of, you have created an opportunity, as you are aware, to be viewing yourselves, your capacity for acceptance, which thusly reinforces your own abilities in these expressions. And also, you are offering yourselves the opportunity to view your own individual automatic responses and your own behaviors.
Now; this also presents itself in a manner that allows you to view perceptions. I have been speaking to many individuals recently concerning perception. This is the most influencing and – in a manner of speaking – important element of your physical reality, for this is the tool that you incorporate in this physical reality that actually creates your individual reality.
I may not express this to you strongly enough! This IS reality. Within the movement and the functioning of your perception, you create your reality, in conjunction with your individual beliefs.
Now; in this particular scenario, you are correct – I have cautioned you individually in the expression that you have allowed yourself a window in your questioning to be incorporating a tremendous avenue for judgment. I have also acknowledged that you also create an opportunity to be turning your perception and allowing yourself to view in a different manner, and the choice has been yours.
In this, the reason that I expressed a cautioning is that the beliefs which are held are strong, and they influence automatic responses.
Now; within your reality, automatic responses are that – they are automatic. They require no thought process. They require no objective motivation, so to speak. Therefore, many times they are difficult within your objective awareness to be even recognizing.
In this, as you are moving into unfamiliar territory in the movement into acceptance, you must be requiring yourself to be paying attention closely to what you are creating and how you are responding, the expressions and behaviors that you engage, and the beliefs that you incorporate in responsiveness in situations concerning other individuals.
Now; all of this is incorporated in the subject of perception.
In this scenario, you offer yourselves the opportunity to view the differences within perceptions, and also allow yourself to view some of the similarities in perception. The automatic expression is to be identifying the differences and to be creating judgments, but you also offer yourself the opportunity to view the similarities, and in this expression, you offer yourselves a reinforcement of acceptance, not merely of the other individual, but of yourselves also.
JO: I’ve seen that, and I also know I have handled this, experienced this, and perceived this entirely differently than I would have even a few months ago.
ELIAS: And I am acknowledging of that statement. You are correct.
JO: I think we’re making headway with our acceptance (laughing, and Elias chuckles) of ourselves through this experience, and it was also for me a wake-up call that my marriage needed a little attention, so I’m trying to see this as a positive thing.
ELIAS: (Laughing) You create many different movements within your reality, and all of these movements are occurring within the now, and you also create a very strong belief that you hold a limited supply of energy and that your attention may only be occupied in certain areas within one time framework, for you do not hold the ability to be paying attention to many different actions simultaneously.
I express to you that this is a belief. It is a quite strong belief, but it IS a belief. And in this, you genuinely hold the ability to be holding your attention quite efficiently within all of the expressions that you incorporate individually, and those that you participate within in relation to other individuals.
In this, let me also express to you, a key element in all of this movement is to be remembering self and allowing yourself to be paying attention to self, for contrary to your automatic association in which you THINK you are paying attention to self, in actuality, what creates many expressions of conflict is that you may be holding your attention too intensely upon the creations and the actions of the other individual, and not paying attention to your actions and your creations.
JO: I see. Just briefly, I’d like you to comment. For some time now, I’ve been wanting to sleep in the daytime and be awake at night, and also I’ve been wanting to sleep on the couch instead of in my bed, which seems rather weird to me, and I wonder if you can tell me why I’m doing this?
ELIAS: Now; I shall express to you that this is in actuality not unusual, and also not an action that you need be incorporating concern in relation to.
Within this time framework, as you allow yourself to be widening your awareness and you are opening to different elements of consciousness and your reality, you naturally move into expressions of experimentation. Some of these experimentations may be exhibited in quite physical manners that appear to be unusual. Sleep patterns are one expression that is being affected in many individuals. This all moves in relation to your participation in this shift in consciousness. You are experimenting with different patterns of the engagement of sleep state.
I have expressed previously within this forum, in what you would term to be much time ago, that your sleep patterns are also quite influenced by your mass belief systems. But once again, these are not absolutes and they are not dictated to you for physical, biological reasons. Your physical body may incorporate sleep state in very different types of expressions, and be functioning just as efficiently as it may be in the incorporation of what you view to be normal sleep patterns in alignment with your belief systems.
In this, you may be noticing that your movement in relation to your incorporation of sleep state may be altering temporarily. This, as I have stated, is the incorporation of experimentation, allowing you to be investigating different manners in which you may be incorporating this sleep state.
I am encouraging of you to not be creating a force within your energy to be complying with what you identify as the norm, but rather, allow yourself a natural expression and flow of your energy, and allow yourself to be incorporating a responsiveness to the movement of your physical body expression.
Your physical body is not dictating to you. What is in actuality occurring is that your subjective awareness is offering messages, so to speak, and directing the consciousness of your physical body. Your physical body subsequently is responsive to that direction and creates an outward expression which offers a communication to your objective awareness, for you shall pay attention to your physical expressions as they alter and exhibit themselves differently.
JO: So, go with the flow!
ELIAS: Quite! Ha ha ha!
JO: Okay! (Laughing) I’m going to let my husband ask a couple of questions, or I can ask them for him. But I just wanted to say that I feel like my desire for effortless abundance is very in alignment with my intent, and I really don’t want to push that away from myself because I feel like it all works together to carry out what I would like to carry out here, with the shift and everything.
ELIAS: You are correct, and you shan’t be “pushing it away,” in your terms. (Chuckling)
JO: Thank you. I needed to hear that! (They both laugh) It’s just such an important issue to me!
Richard is going to ask you a couple of questions, Elias, and I thank you very, very much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
RICHARD: Hi, Elias.
ELIAS: Greetings, my friend!
RICHARD: How are you today?
ELIAS: As always, and yourself?
RICHARD: I’m really doing great today!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
RICHARD: It’s been a good day for me!
RICHARD: I had some questions – had, I say. I came armed with a couple of questions.
ELIAS: Ha ha! Armed to do battle! Ha ha ha!
RICHARD: But anyway, they’re not as important to me now, after hearing some of the session with Jo. (Elias chuckles)
One of my questions, for instance, was, what is my purpose in life? But I don’t think ... that isn’t really the question I’d like to ask. I would much rather know, am I fulfilling the purpose in my life?
ELIAS: Ah! And I express acknowledgment to you in your restructuring of your question! (Chuckling)
Are you fulfilling the purpose within your life? Yes, you are, for your purpose, so to speak, within this physical dimension is to be exploring and experiencing, and this you are accomplishing!
RICHARD: It’s always good to hear that, isn’t it? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
RICHARD: Sometimes the signs are not as great as we’d like to see!
I find that I can create many, many things inside myself, but I never seem to have an exit. There is never an exit. I guess “never” is a really strong word, but how do I manifest those realities?
ELIAS: Identify how you shall be associating this terminology of exit. What are you desiring to be exiting?
RICHARD: Well, therein lies the question!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!
RICHARD: I don’t require an answer for that right now, because that brought also to mind more self-indulgence and my own thought process.
The other thing, and the very last thing, and I don’t even want to delve into this now, but I’m very apprehensive about those who create a false reality, and although it’s a false reality, how do you know?
ELIAS: Now; express to me your identification of “false reality,” first of all. This is your identification of a lie, correct?
RICHARD: I don’t think it has to be ... that’s very restrictive.
ELIAS: I am understanding....
RICHARD: The thing is, if someone were to go forever believing one thing that ... hmm. If you have to say it as a lie, then how would you say it as a truth? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha! Quite, and this is the point!
RICHARD: I think that’s a fear of mine.
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, truth and lies, within consciousness, hold little meaning within their association to your physical reality, for in actuality, there is no definition within consciousness of an untruth or a lie, so to speak.
The identification of truth in consciousness is quite different from your association and definition of truth within your particular physical reality, for what you define as truth within your reality is based upon and subject to your beliefs. This also is not an absolute, for what holds as truth within one individual does not necessarily apply to another individual.
I have expressed previously, even your terminology within your words that you view to be so very absolute – such as words as yes or no – are not in actuality absolute, for their association varies dependent upon the perception of each individual.
Therefore, what is the expression that defines the truth of an existence or the lack of truth of an existence – or what you may term to be a focus or a lifetime – within any individual?
This is the point – the allowance of oneself to be recognizing the reality of perception and how highly individualized this function is, even within a physical reality that appears surfacely to be expressing absolutes or to be expressing sameness in many types of manifestations. This is an illusion, for although you may all view any element within your reality and you may express similar perceptions, you do not create identical perceptions. You do not, in actuality, incorporate absolutes.
Therefore, your reality does not hold the solidity that you believe it holds. You create a fine illusion of it through the projection of your perception as influenced by your beliefs, and you create a reality that appears quite absolute and solid. But as you widen your awareness and you allow yourself to view your reality more realistically, in a manner of speaking, you begin to offer yourself information concerning perception, and how this is so very highly individual, and that each individual’s perception IS quite unique in its expression.
Therefore, as you allow yourself to be offering yourself information objectively and recognizing these elements of your reality – such as your beliefs and your perceptions – and you allow yourselves to be turning your attention to the acceptance of self and holding your attention within self rather than occupying your attention so very intensely with all that you perceive occurs outside of self, you also allow much more of an expression throughout your reality of freedom, and you expand, in actuality, your physical reality.
For to this point throughout your history, prior to the engagement of this shift in consciousness and the movement that it engages, you have created a narrow direction for your experience within this physical reality.
Now; I am not expressing a judgment upon that choice of direction which has been created within your physical reality previously, for it has been enacted quite purposefully and beneficially. It merely is not serving your purposes, so to speak, efficiently any longer, for you are desirous to be expanding your objective and physical reality within this physical dimension, offering you the opportunity to be exploring more of your reality.
The prerequisite to this movement is to be turning your perception.
Your perception has been held in a direction of creating outwardly and perceiving separation of yourself and all else within consciousness.
But as you turn your perception and you allow yourself to be holding your attention within self, and recognizing that in actuality all of your reality stems from self, you turn your perception in a manner that allows you to greatly be expanding your physical reality and your exploration of it and your abilities to be creating within it.
This also eliminates much of the judgments that are held within your physical reality presently, which you may view as you allow yourself the objective understanding that even your sorrow or your expression of pity in relation to another individual – as you view them to be limitedly creating their reality in relation to their beliefs – is a projection of your own perception and is quite influenced by your beliefs, and is in actuality the creation of a judgment.
Whereas in the action of this shift and acceptance and the lack of judgment, you begin the recognition that any creation of reality individually is in actuality neither right nor wrong. It is merely different, and you all create differences. But you gravitate towards sameness, and this is what offers you your evaluation and expression of the norm. It is the gauge that you employ to be offering yourselves your expression of worth.
And THIS is the reason that this shift is so very unfamiliar in its movement, for the movement of this shift incorporates the individual and your directing of your own movement; not in relation to – not in comparison of – other individuals or any other aspect of your reality, but the allowance and freedom of yourself to be directing your choices in the manner that YOU wish, objectively, intentionally, and therefore eliminating your limitations. Are you understanding? (20-second pause) Shall we continue? (Grinning)
RICHARD: Yes. You’ve given me obviously a lot to think about here!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
RICHARD: Although I follow along with Jo and talk with many of the people in the group, I’ve always stood aside. Although our beliefs parallel, we still have different beliefs. I imagine everyone does.
ELIAS: You are correct, and this is quite acceptable! (Laughing)
JO: I think our time is up, Elias.
ELIAS: Very well.
JO: But as always, it was wonderful talking to you, and thank you so much for all your help.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome. I shall disengage in offering to you a parting thought that you may be reflecting upon.
In this, you all incorporate wondrous diversity and wondrous difference within your individuality and your uniqueness, and in this, I applaud your creations in this physical dimension! You are truly, in the expression of truth of consciousness, glorious beings!
I anticipate our next meeting, and shall be offering to you each energy of encouragement.
JO: I thank you for that, and I hope that you will work with us subjectively, where our language barriers won’t get in our way.
ELIAS: Ha ha! I shall offer energy to you.
BOTH: Thank you.
ELIAS: To you both this day, in tremendous affection, au revoir.
Elias departs at 2:21 PM.
