“Moving WITH Your Creations”
“Forcing Energy in Opposition”
“Taking Responsibility for Self”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Letty (Castille).
Elias arrives at 11:40 a.m. (Arrival time is 23 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
LETTY: Good morning to you, Elias!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) We meet again!
LETTY: Yes, and in a very short time! (Elias chuckles) I’ve been creating ... I’ve been very busy creating, I should say!
LETTY: But before I get into my creations, before I forget, I want to ask one last question for Marta from a couple of days ago. It’s one that I kinda brought up myself because I’ve been talking to her. I had the image ... and I don’t know the session, but you talked to her about having one foot over the window but not the other one, and looking at the window but not moving. In talking with her lately, I see a lot of movement in her, where I actually saw both feet over the window, maybe sitting on the ledge, but both feet over the other side of the window. So I guess I just wanted my validation for my imagery for her.
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
LETTY: Hmm! Okay, she’ll like that!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: We like movement! (Elias chuckles)
Well, as you know, I created some interesting imagery. I had an accident, and the interesting thing is that I had always told myself that I never wanted to be in an accident because it’s not the kind of experience that I care to explore, and yet I did have my first one a week ago today in my brand-new car. And of course, the first imagery was, I’m making a big deal about a material product, in this case, my new car, and it hasn’t been my first imagery either, I think, because I lost a diamond earring that cost me a lot of money, and yet, at the same time, in not trying to put importance to it, I think I have.
But the reason I want to ask you about the accident is because I was reading a transcript last night where you were telling somebody about how we create extreme situations to capture our attention sometimes, and because we’re not really paying close attention. The day of the accident, I really didn’t feel I was there at that moment of impact. I mean, I did not feel anything. All of a sudden, it just happened.
LETTY: Therefore, I think that it wasn’t the accident that I was experiencing. It was actually the imagery of the accident that I wanted to explore.
ELIAS: Correct, and beyond exploration of this imagery, what have you offered to yourself in recognition and noticing associated with this imagery?
LETTY: Well, that it really doesn’t matter. It’s kinda like the things I’ve been putting importance on are really not that important. They’re just there for pleasure or effect or making things easier for us, but that’s all they really are.
ELIAS: This is one aspect of information that you have presented to yourself in this imagery. Now express to me what imagery you also have presented to yourself, in relation to our previous discussion.
LETTY: Oh! That I chose it!
LETTY: But my first thought was to blame the person who ran into me.
LETTY: I mean, looking at it objectively, he hit me.
ELIAS: And what does this present to you?
LETTY: Well, it presents to me that even though that’s what it looks like, it really isn’t, because deep down, I chose to participate.
Therefore, you present to yourself in this extreme of imagery the noticing of the strength of beliefs that you hold – which are also mass beliefs and are quite influencing – and how automatically you move into the expression and association of victim. Without thought, without any objective concentration, you automatically move into the association and definition of victim.
Now; you also move in automatic direction of judgment outwardly, blame, and personal responsibility, for you have not created this singularly, have you?
LETTY: No, I have not.
ELIAS: Therefore, there is also an incorporation of personal responsibility in regard to the other participants, and the association of victim of other participants. These are very automatic expressions, Castille.
In this, as the wave addressing to the belief system of duplicity increases and gains momentum, you each are creating objective examples in imagery, that you allow yourselves to view in physical terms these expressions of judgment and of association of victims.
For as you allow yourself to notice how easily you move in the expression of victim and judgment in blame, you also offer yourself more information in that noticing, and move yourself further into an understanding objectively and an allowance to be incorporating more choices, not merely limiting yourself to the automatic responses.
It is quite a challenge to be expressing responsibility for oneself, is it not?
LETTY: Yes, it is.
ELIAS: This be the reason that I express to you and to many other individuals the burden, in a manner of speaking, that you place upon yourselves in assuming personal responsibility for other individuals, and as I have expressed, you hold enough responsibility to be paying attention within self, and acknowledging the responsibility of all that YOU create.
LETTY: Yes. It’s just so hard to look at ourselves sometimes!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: You’re on the other side! (Elias chuckles)
Well, let me ask you, in regard to this, what ... the part that I didn’t quite ... I noticed it, but I’m not sure I recognized it or understood. I felt like I was in an altered state. I was in shock, and my neck was hurt, and I was trying to figure it out, and after I blamed everybody else and felt like the victim, I realized I created it. That was my first thought before I went into it being my choice. But it was still like I wasn’t quite there.
Now; I shall express to you, this is in actuality quite common within individuals in your physical dimension. For this also, if you are allowing yourself to pay attention and notice, is significant.
Let us examine this action. You term this, in like manner to many, many, many other individuals, to be an accident. I shall term this as an event.
Now; in this event, you experience this momentary movement almost in like manner to a projection of consciousness, that which you commonly term to be an out-of-body experience, although I define out-of-body experience differently. Therefore, I express this as a projection within consciousness.
Now; you also notice a slight difference in the expression of time.
LETTY: Of what?
It appears to you to be moving momentarily slower, and allowing you to view all of the events. But subsequent to that slower movement of time, once the event has been accomplished and completed, so to speak, your expression is that it has all occurred very quickly.
Now; let us examine the actual event, for this is significant.
Your belief, in the identification of defining this event as an accident, is that you are not choosing and are unaware of what is being created; that it is a sudden impact, and that you are unprepared and surprised at the creation of this sudden impact, which you have not chosen; therefore the labeling as accident.
Now; as you allow yourself to examine objectively your experience, and notice and pay attention, this is a clear example of the influence of your beliefs that express all of these associations and ideas to you, and color your perception.
For in actuality, in viewing the actual event, this is not what actually occurred, for in the actual event, you have moved your awareness into a different position than that which you hold it normally, so to speak.
In a manner of speaking figuratively, you have moved your awareness slightly away from the expression of your normal association with regard to your body consciousness. Figuratively speaking, you have moved an “astral you” or an “astral body” slightly away from the physical body and [have] viewed, in what appears to be a slower motion, all that occurred.
In that moment, you do not experience surprise. You do not experience shock or amazement. You merely are viewing the event.
It is not until the subsequent moments that you snap yourself into automatic association with the strength of the beliefs, and therefore color your perception and alter your perception into a viewing of the event in quite a different manner, and expressing a reaction to the event quite differently than the actual movement through the event.
Many, many, many individuals, while engaging the process of these types of momentary creations of an event – in similarity to this event that you have created – experience similar action.
They also experience, even in the creation of what you assess to be physical damage to themselves, a lack of pain, a lack of association with negativity in the moment of the occurrence. Your physicians and your psychologists explain this action as trauma and as shock, so to speak.
But in actuality, you are not experiencing shock or surprise, for you are aware of what you are creating, and you are merely participating in that creation – without shock, without surprise, but also without engaging the immediate associations in reaction to what you are creating as influenced by your beliefs. Therefore, your perception is merely viewing neutrally the event that you are creating.
LETTY: What a lesson in automatic responses!
ELIAS: Quite! This is a clear example that you have offered to yourself, and that many other individuals have engaged in similarity and may also view if allowing themselves to pay attention.
The example that is presented [is] in the difference between the immediate perception of the event as it is occurring, and the subsequent reaction to the event as influenced by the strength of the many beliefs that are being incorporated.
In this, you may allow yourselves the recognition that you in actuality DO recognize what you are creating when you are creating it, and that if you are paying attention within the moment, in the now, observing each outcome in the now, you are NOT surprised at what you are creating.
As I have stated from the onset of this forum, the mere action of noticing is an extremely powerful tool, and paying attention to what you are creating in the now, recognizing that you create and choose probabilities in each moment, and that you are continuously changing and altering probabilities from moment to moment, and that you are CHOOSING each movement, each probability.
As you familiarize yourself with self in all of these actions, you may begin to recognize that in actuality, you are NOT a victim. You ARE choosing each event, each action that occurs within your reality. You are ONLY responsible for self, and that is enough. You are NOT responsible for the participation of other individuals, or their creation of their events in their reality.
And in this paying attention and becoming familiar with you, you allow yourself to turn your perception, and in this, you allow yourself to create more choices.
This is not to say that you shall necessarily create different choices than those that you are engaging now, but you shall not view yourself as victim in the choices that you are creating, and your perception of those choices shall be quite different, and therefore their affectingness of you shall be quite different.
LETTY: (Inaudible), or I understand the experience, I should say.
LETTY: Okay. Well, speaking of events, I had an asthma episode in Palm Springs. It was very intense, and it seemed that it was another one of my joltings to notice, and I guess the validation I want from you is, sometimes it still takes me a while to notice exactly what’s happening in the present now, but what I came up with was that I had put judgment on myself. I was criticizing myself a lot – I mean, my body, my face, my hair, everything. So is that why I chose to create and to notice the asthma episode that evening?
ELIAS: Yes, and also, once again, to present to yourself these concepts that we have been discussing; not merely the automatic, but the association of victim, and the recognition that you are CHOOSING.
These are tremendous challenges to be incorporating into your actual reality, within your perception, and to be accepting, for these are very unfamiliar associations within your reality.
LETTY: Well, I do want to notice....
ELIAS: Let me also remind you, as I have reminded other individuals recently, you are presenting more of extremes of all of these expressions of imagery in this time framework, in response and movement WITH this wave in consciousness addressing to duplicity.
Now; in allowing yourself that same type of movement objectively in relation to what you are presenting to yourselves, you may also create less conflict – and less constriction, in your situation – within yourself.
What I am expressing in this is that you allow yourself, as you may view objectively, an ease in flow WITH this wave in consciousness, and you create imagery quite effortlessly in an expression of actual relaxation of your energy.
You create an event, such as that which you identify as your accident. You create an expression, with no concentration objectively, of this asthma, this breathing restriction.
Now; view how you flow into those expressions without force.
Now; allowing yourself to move without force in the same manner WITHIN the expression is what I have been speaking to you of many times previously. I express to you, allow yourself to be relaxing. Allow yourself a physical relaxation. Allow yourself to be noticing your attention. Allow yourself to relax your energy.
Let me express to you, I am understanding of the challenge that is presented in the attempt to be moving in that type of expression, for it is confusing to you, and you are not quite understanding how to be accomplishing that action of allowing yourself to merely move WITH the expression rather than forcing energy in opposition to it.
It is another automatic response to be forcing energy in opposition to creations that you have chosen, that you do not accept [as] your choice, and that you dislike.
Your automatic reaction is to be forcing energy in opposition to it, and that creates more of an attention, more of a holding of your energy, and perpetuates the expression that you dislike and holds your concentration upon it.
Whereas, allowing yourself the type of relaxation that I am expressing to you, by moving your energy WITH the choice, WITH the expression ... I may not express to you strongly enough the actual alteration that generally occurs in this type of movement.
In actuality, for the most part, generally speaking, the individual experiences what they actually objectively WISH to be experience[ing].
In this, within your individual situation in the experience of this restriction of breath, this asthma that you incorporate, in not opposing it and not perpetuating it by creating tension and by concentrating upon it, analyzing it, moving into the attempt to be identifying the beliefs associated with it, the “cause,” so to speak – all of these actions, in the moment of the event, create a situation in which your full concentration of attention is upon the creation of the restriction.
This creates more of a tension within your energy, for you increase and increase your tension as you begin incorporating frustration and anxiety in your attempt to be “finding your cause or your answer,” which continues to perpetuate holding your attention upon the creation in opposition to it and forcing energy in opposition to it, with the hope to be uncreating it.
Once again, I express to you, this is what holds importance, for as you continue to be attempting to uncreate it by discovering its cause, you are in actuality perpetuating the very experience that you dislike.
Whereas, in relaxing your energy, in relaxing yourself, in relaxing your thought process ... for in actuality, within the moment of the creation, it has been created. It is purposeful. It may be merely to gain your attention. It has gained your attention instantaneously, has it not?
LETTY: Oh, yes!
ELIAS: Therefore, why shall you perpetuate it through your concentration upon it? You may subsequently, within another moment, return to the viewing of the event, in like manner to your viewing of the event of your accident, and allow yourself to explore the why of your creation, the beliefs that are influencing.
But within the moment of the creation, the mere noticing of it is enough, and the manner, the method in which you may be affecting of it in the manner that you desire objectively, is to allow yourself that expression of relaxation – which is also acceptance – and allow your energy to move WITH your choice rather than against your choice.
LETTY: Is that why sometimes, Elias, I do feel the shortness of breath and I do notice the shortness of breath, but somehow, I do relax myself, and then I pay attention and then it’s all gone?
ELIAS: Yes. Pay attention to this action.
ELIAS: Seriously, pay attention to this action! This is an excellent example of that which I am expressing to you, for the movement in allowance, acceptance, and WITH the energy that you have chosen allows a free expression. Therefore, you in actuality create, in the next moment, what you wish to be creating, in the lack of that expression.
LETTY: Which goes back to realizing how hard I try instead of just letting it be.
LETTY: Okay. Wow. That would be an eye-opener! (Elias chuckles) As you say it, I go back to many instances where I have practiced it, but not enough, and so I’ve practiced completely the opposite of what you said, in concentrating so much on it that I fight it.
In this, Castille, also offer yourself, in each of these experiences, permission to not be judging self that you are not accomplishing well enough. Allow yourself to merely accept what you are creating in the moment, and not express the judgment that you “should be creating this better,” or that you are not creating this “good enough.”
LETTY: Be kinder to myself.
ELIAS: Yes, and express gentleness.
LETTY: I’ll definitely work on it. (Elias chuckles) Okay. Thank you so much, Elias.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend.
LETTY: I have two questions in which I guess I need your insight to the present now of probabilities. (Elias chuckles) So, I hope you’ll pull out your little crystal ball! (Laughing)
LETTY: Our business, our institution, is going through a lot of changes. I see how we’re all participating, and it’s exciting! In the midst of that excitement, we go back to a little bit of personal responsibility and trying not to make it personal responsibility, but to be understanding and to be ready for it. The issues at hand right now, with a lot of people that work with me, are (inaudible). These people, I know, create their reality, which will be to get laid off. I’m participating because I’m part of this institution, and I will be there to let them know that. I know it’s kind of an up-and-down hill right now, but within the present now, what is the probability that this will happen soon? Is it a probability, I guess is my question.
ELIAS: In what you are collectively creating presently, yes; which once again is yet another example objectively in addressing to this expression of victims.
LETTY: Right. And the other one is ... which I’ve asked about once before, but some time ago, and things have changed a little bit, but I’m not sure how much ... about Leezar’s company, and how it’s still trying to form and still hasn’t quite picked up, and the probability that it will (inaudible).
ELIAS: I shall express to you, this quite genuinely is dependent upon Leezar’s choices and how he is choosing to objectively express his choices of his direction, which are also, within this present now, directly influenced and linked to his associations concerning his abilities, and his trust of himself in expressing those abilities.
LETTY: Okay. Well, I think ... oh, one last question. I spent a couple of days with Leezar’s brother, and I really enjoyed it and was able to communicate, and we connected really well. I want to ask you his essence name and family and alignment.
ELIAS: Very well. (Pause) Essence name, Vischu; V-I-S-C-H-U. (veesh’yoo) Essence family, Vold; alignment, Ilda.
LETTY: Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
LETTY: Well, I think this is about enough for today, Elias! (Elias chuckles) I feel very, very good about how I’ve been perceiving and understanding. I know it’s still a challenge, but you validated me and made me feel very good! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: So, thank you!
ELIAS: You are quite welcome! I offer to you encouragement that you continue to be noticing and holding your attention within the now, but in relaxation, not tension ... and incorporate FUN!
LETTY: Okay! (Elias chuckles) Thank you so much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome. I express to you great affection. You may offer my greetings to Marta and Isabel, and to you in lovingness, I express au revoir.
LETTY: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 12:28 p.m.
