“Unique is Wondrous!”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and a new participant, Patricia (Liva).
Elias arrives at 3:18 PM. (Arrival time is 28 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon! (Grinning)
PATRICIA: (Hesitantly) Hello.
PATRICIA: Hi. (Elias chuckles)
ELIAS: And you have questions?
PATRICIA: Nice to meet you.
ELIAS: And you also! (Grinning)
PATRICIA: Okay, I have questions.
ELIAS: Very well. You may proceed.
PATRICIA: Were you aware of me before today, in my terms?
ELIAS: (Chuckling) In your terms – in my terms – yes.
PATRICIA: Really? (Giggling, and Elias chuckles) For how long?
ELIAS: Time is relative to your physical dimension. Therefore, the length of time is insignificant. As to my identification with you and my knowing of you, I know you in essence, and therefore, it is irrelevant as to the time factor, so to speak. (Chuckling)
PATRICIA: (Laughing) Okay! Well, I’ve made some questions, as you may know. What is my essence name?
ELIAS: Essence name, Liva; L-I-V-A. (lee’vah)
PATRICIA: That sounds like a female name.
ELIAS: It may be interpreted in your language [as] holding the female gender.
PATRICIA: It’s a pretty name. I like it! (Laughing) That’s funny!
How many earth focuses do I have? (Pause)
ELIAS: Four hundred twenty-seven.
PATRICIA: Twenty-seven! Four hundred twenty-seven. I remark on that because 27 as a number seems to occur in my life all the time, like I see it around. What is with that? Why do I see the number 27 all the time? Do you understand what I mean?
ELIAS: Yes. You offer this particular number to yourself in what you may term to be objective imagery. All that you encounter within your physical waking state may be identified as objective imagery, and in this, imagery that you draw to yourself is significant to YOU.
Now; this particular number may be associated with identifications in relation to numerology. It may also be associated with certain aspects of astrology.
In this, you identify the number of focuses also, in this particular dimension, that you may easily be accessing if you are so choosing, and that would be also the number 27.
ELIAS: Essences manifest multiple focuses in each time framework. In each time framework – or in most time frameworks in relation to each essence – there are some manifestations that are more easily accessed, in what you term to be “connecting to objectively,” than other focuses.
Within this time framework presently, your essence manifests seven focuses. Those other six focuses of your essence within this present time framework would not be as easily accessed by you as another focus within another time framework.
ELIAS: For the action that the essence incorporates in multiple manifestations in any given time framework incorporates a slightly different element of tone with each manifestation, offering each focus a uniqueness and a type of veil which is created between them that allows them each to move freely and experience within the purity of their individual experiences.
In this manner, each focus does not become confused within its identity as it may overlap with another focus within a particular time framework. Therefore, it is quite purposeful that there is this veil, so to speak, between the different focuses of any given time framework.
Now; each of those manifestations holds a similar tone to another manifestation within a different time framework. Therefore, those focuses are easily accessed by each other.
PATRICIA: Okay, I think I follow that – I think I do. You mentioned numerology and astrology, and I was going to ask about that.
Often I’ll meet people, and I won’t ... okay, let’s say, like one time I was standing in line waiting to go to a club, and I was just kind of staring off into the distance, focusing in one way, I mean mentally thinking in one way, not that I could tell you what it was. But I just got the urge to ask the kid in front of me, “Hey, when’s your birthday?” And he says, “Tomorrow!” I was like, oh really? That’s kind of cool, you know?
But the question is, I’ve read a lot about astrology, and I seem to be able to pick up on the signs, so-called. And so is there a truth, like a rock-bottom truth, to these people patterns within astrology? Because I really seem to have come to like a connection with it, but I don’t know if that’s just because I believe it, or it’s true.
ELIAS: I shall express to you, the principals or the identifications of what you define as astrology stem, in a manner of speaking, from truth. In this, through your belief systems and your viewing of your universe, so to speak, physically, you have inverted or reversed the actual identification of the action which occurs.
In the study, so to speak, of astrology, you believe that the universe, as an entity separate from yourself, is guiding and creating patterns that you, as individuals in this dimension, follow or align with. In actuality, what is occurring is that you as the individuals create the design, and you project outwardly.
The universe IS you. Therefore, the planets, the stars, all of your cosmic creations, so to speak, are extensions of you and your energy, and THEY mirror YOU, not you mirroring them.
In this, as you look to certain movements of your planets, and you assign certain behaviors to yourselves in relation to those planets, you have reversed your idea of the action.
It is not the planets that move in a particular configuration, and you respond. YOU move in a particular design, and collectively you also affect and move your planets.
PATRICIA: That’s way cool! (Elias chuckles) Okay. What is my essence family name?
ELIAS: Essence family, Sumafi; alignment in this focus, Sumari.
PATRICIA: Oh, really! Yet from what you’ve said in other sessions, okay. (Elias chuckles) I am understanding. (Giggling)
How are you?
ELIAS: As always! (Grinning)
PATRICIA: Yeah? Do I have a focus as a female doctor, or maybe chemist, in perhaps the 1800s? (Pause)
PATRICIA: Hmm. I ask that because I saw her in a dream, or in dream imagery, and she was mixing chemicals. I thought she was going to kill someone. I felt from her, which is me but another me, that she was going to kill this man. Just out of curiosity, did she? (Pause)
ELIAS: In the offering of what you may term to be potion, indirectly, yes. (Grinning)
PATRICIA: (Laughing) I would never do that!
ELIAS: HA HA HA HA HA!
PATRICIA: But this personality had no remorse! Okay.... (Laughing, and Elias chuckles)
ELIAS: Let me express to you, at times it may be viewed as valuable to you to allow yourself to be “connecting with” – so to speak, in objective terms – another focus of your essence which you may deem to be “shady” or of less moral conviction than yourself, for this offers you the opportunity to view more aspects of yourself.
This allows you to view that choices are merely choices – they are not necessarily good or bad – and that the choices that individuals create to be incorporating certain experiences are merely that – choices.
Now; this is also valuable that you allow yourself to view another focus that you deem to be shady or bad, for in that, many times you thusly allow yourself to view that that is an aspect of you, but it is, in a manner of speaking, within your perception, removed from you.
In that assessment, you may look to yourself as you are exploring your movement into acceptance of self, and you may be creating that acceptance with more ease, for you automatically create comparisons, and in these comparisons, you may be viewing another focus and you may be expressing to yourself, “I am not quite THAT bad!”
PATRICIA: (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) I’m very aware of my dream life. I have them all down in a book and I analyze them, and lately I’ve been getting dream imagery involving the mall. Do you know what the mall is? The mall is like, it’s a big shopping area, an area of commerce where lots of different people go. But it’s been coming up in my dreams a lot lately, and I’d like to know the significance of that. Is it symbolism that I create, just me, or is it a collective symbol? Because I often meet people there, and it seems as if it’s a place in the dream world, ‘cause you know, I’m always going to these malls. I have more to that question, but is this a legitimate place in the dream world?
ELIAS: First of all, let me offer to you a distinction within your idea of this dream world. Within your dream state, what you are in actuality creating is your allowance to be moving into what we may term to be Regional Area 2.
PATRICIA: Yeah, Framework 2!
ELIAS: In that area of consciousness, you do create actual probable realities, and in these probable realities, you create actual places also, which hold equal solidity and form and matter as THIS reality that you view within your objective awareness.
Now; in this action that you are creating with what you term to be your mall within your dream state, you are creating imagery in relation to two actions simultaneously. One action may be identified, figuratively speaking, as a type of in-between movement and introduction, as you allow yourself to move closer to the engagement of visiting what we have identified as the city.
Now; you may be inquiring of Michael, and he may be offering you information concerning the city. Many individuals that participate within this forum also allow themselves interaction within this particular city.
You have not quite incorporated the movement of allowing yourself to move fully into the actual projection to this city, but you have created an interim location, an in-between location which you have designed ...
ELIAS: Yes. ... in your imagery, which offers you the opportunity to be interconnecting and interacting with other individuals who are also projecting within consciousness.
PATRICIA: Okay. (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) Cool! I seem to be very active in the dream state. (Elias grins) Yeah! Do you think?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, all individuals create tremendous activity within their dream state. This time framework is ...
PATRICIA: Really fun!
ELIAS: ... incorporated in your reality to offer you the opportunity to be moving into a direct communication subjectively with essence and all of consciousness.
You allow yourself much less limitation within your dream state, and in this, you also allow yourself to move more freely through your beliefs. They are not quite as influencing of you and your choices within your dream state as they may appear within your waking state. You offer yourself much information and communication within your dream state.
Now; many individuals do not offer themselves the action of recall of their dream activity, but they are engaging this activity regardless. Some individuals allow themselves to be recalling their dream imagery more frequently and more fully than other individuals.
Now; I shall also express to you that two of the three orientations within this particular dimension allow themselves to be recalling objectively their dream imagery more easily than the one.
PATRICIA: And those would be?
ELIAS: The intermediate and the soft.
PATRICIA: So, which one am I?
PATRICIA: I am?
PATRICIA: Whoa! (Elias chuckles) Whoa!
ELIAS: Now; let me express to you, recall of dream imagery is an objective action. The incorporation of identification of your dream imagery, in terms that you understand or in images that you may identify, is also an objective action. Individuals that incorporate the orientation of soft are accustomed to this action, for they create this type of action continuously throughout their focus, of moving their attention in and out of their objective and subjective awarenesses. Therefore, they interplay their objective awareness within their dream activity quite frequently, which offers them also an ease in recall of dream imagery.
Intermediate individuals allow themselves a recall of dream imagery quite frequently, for the dream state is in actuality a subjective movement, and intermediate individuals focus their attention subjectively. Therefore, they create an ease in their identification of dream state. Those individuals of intermediate may also allow themselves to be connecting with much information through dream state. They may be accessing information of other focuses and other areas of consciousness and other types of experiences much more easily within the dream state than they may allow themselves within waking state.
As soft, you may be incorporating either action. You may choose to be incorporating these types of activities within your waking objective state, or you may incorporate other states of subjective movement and you may access information as easily.
PATRICIA: Really?! Well, that is ... very ... cool. (Elias chuckles) Did you know that I just couldn’t find the word?
ELIAS: (Chuckling) You may be relaxing. I shall not bite you! Ha ha ha! And you shall not dematerialize in our interaction! Ha ha ha ha ha! (17-second pause)
PATRICIA: Do you know what I’m thinking?
ELIAS: (Warmly) I shall express to you that I do not read thoughts. Therefore, you may be safe within yourself. I am not identifying your thought process. I interact with your energy – your essence and this manifestation of your essence – which I may express to you is quite wonderfully configured!
PATRICIA: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome. (Chuckling)
PATRICIA: Do you mean I’m cute?
PATRICIA: A lightness?
ELIAS: Yes. In offering yourself an expression of freedom of movement, you also create a lightness of your energy, a floating of your energy, which may be quite refreshing to some individuals!
PATRICIA: Really? (Elias chuckles) Thank you for the compliment. I’ve never received one quite like that!
Okay, you say that there are thought and emotionally based people. I guess that I’m emotionally based.
ELIAS: You are correct.
PATRICIA: Okay. I’d also guess that that’s rare – rare among people – to be emotionally based.
PATRICIA: Oh, really?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
PATRICIA: It doesn’t seem that way! I feel like I’m the most emotional person! How does everyone else hide it so well? (Laughing)
ELIAS: (Grinning) Now; let me express to you, the reason that you identify yourself differently in this expression of emotional focus is that you incorporate both emotional focus and soft orientation. Therefore, you also exhibit more, objectively speaking, of an expression of emotion, and you focus your attention more fully in the expression of emotion.
PATRICIA: Oh. (Pause) As a soft orientation, I do feel very different, like it definitely sets me apart. (Elias nods) Yeah?
ELIAS: And I shall express to you that in interaction with other individuals that hold this same orientation, you may discover that they also experience this unusualness or differentness or strangeness.
PATRICIA: (Laughing) Okay, ‘cause I’ve always been those things!
ELIAS: (Gently) Let me express to you also, you are none of which. You are perfect in your being as you are. You merely feel different, for you are attempting to fit yourself into the expression of what you view to be the norm, so to speak, and you do not fit within that configuration.
Therefore, as you allow yourself to be offering yourself permission to express your energy in the manner that it naturally flows, and are not creating this continuous comparison between yourself and other individuals and their perceptions, you may allow yourself much more of a freedom.
PATRICIA: Yeah. (Elias chuckles) I think I’ve been getting that lately. As I’ve been offering myself information, I’ve been understanding that I need to move in that direction, if you will.
Okay, I’d like to ask you, do I have a connection in a focus besides this one with a boy named Jesse? Do you know who I’m talking about? (Pause)
PATRICIA: I do?
ELIAS: Yes. In actuality, you interact with this individual in several focuses, in different configurations of relationships. (Pause) Within two focuses that you share together, you create an exceptional expression of conflict.
PATRICIA: Really! Ha!
ELIAS: Within the other focuses that you share together, you create a different expression in friendship and what you physically term to be closeness.
PATRICIA: Really! That’s interesting. I don’t know if you are aware, but in this focus, I found myself having a relationship with this person, and the relationship seemed to be very ... fated? (Elias smiles and nods) You gave a little nod to me.
ELIAS: I am understanding of what you are expressing.
PATRICIA: Okay, and it also seems that the relationship is not meant to be continuing, like I’m very much supposed to go my own way? Elias, I wish I could put this very simply ... I seem to have a huge crush on this person. Can you give me any information here?
ELIAS: As I have stated, you have created other focuses in which you create a relationship of closeness, and you allow yourself an objective recognition of this.
Let me express to you, regardless of what you create within other focuses in relation to any individual, that does not dictate what you create in THIS focus. Your movement in this focus is not the same as your movement in other focuses. Each focus, each manifestation, creates its own individual, unique line of probabilities and movement and its own choices. Therefore, you are not subject to or “locked into” any type of expression in relation to the other focuses that you hold and the other interactions that you engage with another individual in other focuses.
This is not to say that you may not be recognizing of what you within your common vernacular identify as “connections,” for you do. You objectively recognize that you hold certain draws to some individuals or that you are repelled by other individuals.
[With] some individuals, you may feel within you and sense within you quite strongly this interconnectedness, for you are allowing yourself slightly more of a recognition objectively of what you may be engaging in other focuses.
But do not confuse yourself with the thought process that may express to you that you hold an obligation to be interactive – or continuing to be interactive – with any individual merely for the reason that you engage them within other focuses, for this energy is not dictating your actions or choices or behaviors.
PATRICIA: Okay. (45-second pause) At this point, I don’t seem to have much in common with people around me ... well, we’re both physical. But there’s definitely something lacking, and it’s ... I don’t know. (Crying) I think it could be partially this moral conviction-ness that I have, or it could be, I’m extremely sensitive. I don’t know which. I just don’t know quite what to do about it. Can you offer me any insight, and do you know what I’m talking about?
PATRICIA: Okay, thank you. It’s very heartening to me to have someone who knows what I’m talking about. (Elias leans forward and smiles)
ELIAS: Now, shall you breathe? (Jen takes a deep breath) And again. (Deep breath) This is not quite so very difficult. (Smiling warmly)
(Gently) Let me express to you, you may be assured, first of all, I am understanding of what you are expressing, and also, there is no expression but acceptance in this interaction. Therefore, it matters not what you express. None of what you offer is wrong or bad or less than adequate, and you need not be struggling so very intensely to be controlling your expression. It is acceptable.
I am understanding of your identification of sensitivity. Let us view this sensitivity.
There are some individuals that manifest within this physical dimension that exhibit what you in physical terms identify as extreme sensitivity. This is another expression that sets them apart, so to speak, or creates what the mass views as a difference, and of course, within your mass belief systems – even within your individual belief systems – difference is not good. (Chuckling) And this is the point of this shift ...
PATRICIA: Thank god.
ELIAS: ... that you all recognize difference, and that you realize in your reality an acceptance.
Now; let us begin in the direction of the beginning, which is the acceptance of self.
One of the most influencing elements of energy, with yourself and with other individuals that exhibit this same type, so to speak, of extreme sensitivity, is your identification of your difference and your lack of acceptance of that difference.
For what you are projecting is an assessment of yourself – that you exhibit a particular type of behavior, and that behavior is different from other individuals, in your view of comparison, and once you have assessed that difference, you immediately also discount yourself.
You attempt to be altering your expression and configuring your behavior to be more compatible and more in like expression to other individuals. You also continue to chastise and discount yourself as you fail at your attempts to be fitting yourself into the mold of this elusive norm, so to speak.
Therefore, what you project is the energy that expresses that you are not acceptable for you are different, and as you project this energy, you create this beacon that draws to yourself the reinforcement of that belief.
Now; this may appear contradictory, for within the identifications of many individuals, they may express to themselves and to each other that if you are discounting of yourself, you are also projecting a heaviness in energy, and you do not. You create a lightness within your energy, and a projection of your energy in a configuration, which if you are so choosing to be incorporating comparisons, you may compare this configuration of energy to that of a blossoming flower, with its delicacy and its lightness, but also quite exhibiting, in all of its flare, its beauty. This is the energy that you exhibit, but you also project with that energy an expression of a lack of acceptance.
Think to yourself of a frail little flower, and the beauty of its little petals.
Now; what shall your assessment be if you place this tiny flower, in its delicacy, into the hand of an immense being? You may become fearful that its delicateness may be crushed, not necessarily through intention, but merely in interaction with it, for its form is exhibited in such delicacy.
I offer this analogy to you quite purposefully, for you project yourself, in your being and your energy, as this tiny little flower.
PATRICIA: Am I, though? Or do I choose to project that?
ELIAS: Your energy, your expression of yourself, is naturally this configuration of energy.
PATRICIA: Okay, I follow.
ELIAS: This is not bad! What creates a confusion is that in like manner to that small flower that may be so easily crushed, in your view, you view yourself in this expression of sensitivity to also be easily damaged.
PATRICIA: Yes ... and it’s not necessarily so?
ELIAS: What I am expressing to you is that this flower may be much more resilient than you believe it to be.
Let us view this flower once again. Allow yourself a visualization of a small flower.
Now; as it exhibits itself within your earth, also allow yourself to envision the violence of a storm – pelting rain, thunderous winds. The force of the energy of these expressions may appear to you to hold the ability to crush this little flower, but as the storm recedes, you may view that the little flower continues to exist and blossom. It may bend within the force of the storm. It may APPEAR to be damaged. But in actuality, it merely has bent, and it springs forth once again and produces itself quite strongly in its delicacy.
What I am expressing to you is that you express this lightness, but you also hold the fear that this expression of sensitivity creates a vulnerability, which allows the potential for damage or crushing or hurtfulness to yourself. Therefore, you also view that you need be placing this light energy beneath a dome to be protecting it.
You hold already a natural dome in your energy field, and that energy field holds tremendous strength, even in its expression of lightness, and in fragility and in sensitivity.
Now ... and I shall express to you, if you concern yourself with this time element once more, I shall be forced to be exhibiting a stoppage of the time framework! Ha ha!
PATRICIA: (Laughing) Well, that would be neat!
ELIAS: It matters not – we shall continue!
PATRICIA: Yes, please!
ELIAS: I shall discontinue as I am ended.
PATRICIA: Okay ... okay!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Very well.
Now; in this, what I express to you is that you allow yourself the opportunity to view this natural expression of your energy, and in your viewing, allow yourself an appreciation of this expression.
Allow yourself the permission to be appreciating of your natural expression in its sensitivity, in its glorious sentimentality – which is a wondrous expression! – and in the fullness of its lightness, and in that, also allow yourself the recognition that toughness is not necessarily strength, and that you incorporate a tremendous strength in that sensitivity.
As you allow yourself to be moving into an acceptance of yourself and your natural expression, and allow yourself to view the gloriousness of your being, you shall also begin to project that beacon outwardly, and in that, other individuals shall draw to you in that viewing, not in the viewing of discounting yourself and not in the expression of reinforcing your difference, which you view to be negative.
Difference is the expression of unique, and unique is wondrous!
Let me express to you, many, many individuals believe themselves to be the same, and they are all unique. You are all individual, you are all unique, and you are all glorious! Therefore, revel in your uniqueness! (Short pause)
Shall you practice?
ELIAS: (Chuckling, and Jen laughs) How shall you practice....
PATRICIA: I think I do when I dance, sometimes.
ELIAS: You are correct! You allow yourself a freedom of movement, without comparison ... to an extent! (Chuckling, and Jen laughs) But you do allow yourself a freedom in expression, and an incorporation of an acceptance of your expression.
PATRICIA: I do dome a little when I dance, don’t I? (Laughing)
ELIAS: To an extent, yes. (Chuckling)
Now; you may practice in your expression in first, noticing. Allow yourself to be noticing in those time frameworks in which you are “doming,” (chuckling) and as you create that action and you create your dome, allow yourself momentarily to practice removing the dome, even momentarily.
ELIAS: By allowing yourself to express permission to yourself that you are acceptable, even momentarily.
PATRICIA: Acceptable to who? To me?
ELIAS: And to your universe. Acceptable to yourself, acceptable to your world, acceptable to every individual around you, and yourself, even momentarily.
I am not expressing to you an enormous exercise which is not accomplishable to you now. I am merely expressing that you allow yourself to be noticing when you are creating your dome, and periodically, momentarily, allow yourself to remove your dome merely for a moment. Offer yourself one moment of freedom in not being enclosed, one moment in which you do not incorporate the fear of other individuals’ perceptions.
Let me express to you, I shall be greatly acknowledging of you in energy if you create ONE moment before our next meeting – even one moment. That is enough practice. And other than that one moment, merely allow yourself to be noticing.
Noticing is helpful, for as you allow yourself to notice what you are creating, you allow yourself objectively to be more aware, and as you are more aware, you also may be noticing the areas and the expressions [in] which you ARE creating freedoms and you ARE offering yourself permission to be expressing yourself in your natural flow.
You may also continue interaction with Michael. This may be helpful. I express to you that he holds an adequate understanding objectively of this orientation and its expressions. He also holds an adequate understanding of the expressions of emotionally focused individuals, for he offers himself many, many, many experiences in interaction with them! Ha ha ha ha ha! (Elias is cracking himself up again!)
This may be helpful to you in reinforcement to you temporarily, as you allow yourself to move into your OWN expression of validation.
PATRICIA: Okay. Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are very welcome. Shall we be in agreement?
ELIAS: Very well. I shall anticipate interacting with you futurely, and I shall offer you energy as you move in the interim.
PATRICIA: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome. As you wish, you may call upon me, and I shall respond in an expression of energy to be encouraging of you. Agreed?
PATRICIA: Thank you. (Crying)
ELIAS: You are very welcome. Now go and be the beauteous little flower that you are!
PATRICIA: (Whispering) Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend. I shall discontinue this day, and you have much to assimilate.
PATRICIA: Yes, I do! (Laughing)
ELIAS: (Chuckling) To you in tremendous affection, au revoir.
PATRICIA: (Sighing and whispering) Bye.
Elias departs at 4:29 PM.
