ďDiscovering Intent; Tree AnalogyĒ
ďYou Actually Do Create All of Your RealityĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Lorraine (Kayia).
Elias arrives at 12:39 PM. (Arrival time is 24 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon!
LORRAINE: Good afternoon, Elias!
ELIAS: (Chuckles) We meet again!
LORRAINE: Yes, itís been a while! I have a few quickie questions for you. One of them is I want to know if I was thought focused or emotionally. I feel that Iím more thought focused.
LORRAINE: And how about my boyfriend, Pete? He also is thought focused?
LORRAINE: Then I want to ask you about a friend of mine. I wanted to get her essence name, family of consciousness, alignment, and orientation. Her name is Jean E.
ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Mannya, M-A-N-N-Y-A (MAHN yah). Essence family, Borledim; alignment, Vold; orientation, common.
LORRAINE: I have a friend named Jim who is always calling me Rene. We seem to think we may share a focus in France of two friends: I was Rene and he was Jacqueline. I want to find out if that would be correct.
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
LORRAINE: Can you give me the time period that that was?
ELIAS: Time framework, beginning 18th century.
LORRAINE: Can you tell me how many focuses Jim and I do share in this particular physical reality?
LORRAINE: And Peter and I only share seven, is that correct?
LORRAINE: Can you tell me how many total focuses I have in this physical reality?
ELIAS: And your impression?
LORRAINE: Well, I asked someone else, and I donít get any impressions that I can tell. But I was told around 1223, something like that.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) Very well. Total numbering of focuses in this physical dimension, 1168.
LORRAINE: Now thatís the little quickie stuff. I am sure youíve been in my head recently and you know all the things Iíve been thinking about in the last couple weeks, right? (Elias laughs) Well, another question that I guess I would want to know is what is my intent in this focus?
ELIAS: What is your assessment?
LORRAINE: My individual intent in this focus.
ELIAS: What is your assessment of your intent? What has been your investigation?
LORRAINE: Well, in looking at my focus up till now I would say that I definitely have been experiencing a lot of things. I am Sumari, Sumafi aligned with Sumari, so I would think that I have a lot of ... I donít know, I just feel like Iíve been experiencing a lot of different things, relationships, jobs, residences. I havenít really moved around the world so much, I mean Iíve sort of stayed in one general area but Iíve definitely experienced a lot of different things. But I donít really know what thatís all supposed to mean or what Iím supposed to do with it or ... thatís just it. Thatís my impression.
ELIAS: Allow yourself to examine your focus and discover the theme, that which motivates your experiences in what you may recognize as a general direction.
LORRAINE: What motivates my experiences in a general direction?
ELIAS: Correct. For the experiences themselves are, in a manner of speaking, the branches of the tree. The direction, or the theme of your focus is what may be expressed as general, and the experiences that you generate in that direction are more specific explorations of the general theme. Therefore, allow yourself to examine the entirety of your focus and discover what the general theme has been in relation to the experiences that you have chosen. This shall offer you a clear recognition of your intent within this focus.
I am greatly encouraging of individuals to be attempting to offer this information to themselves, for this is significant especially within this time framework. For the movement that you are creating now in relation to this shift in consciousness is to be becoming much more intimately familiar with self, which allows you a greater objective understanding of not merely what you are creating, but how you are creating within your reality and what motivates that movement.
LORRAINE: So youíre not going to give me an easy answer, hmm? (Elias laughs) Well, I donít know. I know Iím not supposed to compare myself with everybody else in this forum, but I donít know, I donít seem to ... whatís the word, I know you know what Iím thinking; letís see. I donít seem to be getting in touch with any other focuses, not that I have any interest in that actually, but when I try to sort of do a little meditation and get quiet and try to get in touch with anything, I donít ever get in touch with anything! (Laughing) I donít seem to ... do you know what Iím saying?
ELIAS: Which also matters not, my friend. This is the choice of each individual. Although I may express to individuals that it may be beneficial to allow themselves to be viewing other focuses of themselves, it is not necessary and it is the choice of each individual.
Some individuals may be allowing themselves a greater understanding and recognition of the vastness of themselves if they are allowing themselves to view other focuses. Some individuals do not generate, as you have stated, interest in this type of action. This is not to say that you may not offer yourself an understanding and recognition of yourself as essence without viewing other focuses. This is merely a choice, my friend. There are many individuals, yourself also, that choose to be concerning yourself with THIS objective reality, this focus.
LORRAINE: Right. But I also feel that I want to find out more about myself and know myself better, and I guess what Iím not understanding is how to go about doing that. Or what is it, the way that ... I donít know. Am I choosing a way? Am I doing it? I donít feel that I am, but...
ELIAS: The manner in which you may be allowing yourself more of a familiarity with self and an objective recognition and intimate relationship with self, not necessarily incorporating viewing other focuses of yourself, may be expressed in turning your attention.
Now; what I am expressing in this is as you turn your attention to the acting aspect of yourself, that aspect of yourself which chooses, that aspect of yourself that creates the DOING within your focus, you may be offering yourself clearer information concerning your direction, which shall also offer you information concerning your intent. But this movement of your attention to the aspect of yourself that incorporates action and choosing shall also allow you a clearer distinction of what you want and what you think you want. It also shall offer you information concerning what you are actually creating, rather than what you think you are creating in holding your attention upon the mechanism of your thoughts.
Let me express to you my friend, as I have recently with many other individuals, attention is not thought. It may be directed to thought, but it itself is not thought.
Therefore, as you discover where your attention is directed, you may also move your attention. You may steer your attention, and allow yourself to pay attention to what you are actually doing and choosing rather than what you are thinking. This is not to say that you shall disengage your thinking or that you shall not involve the incorporation of thought, for you shall; but that your attention is not directed to the thoughts as that which actually creates your reality, for they do not.
This is a manner in which you may familiarize yourself with self more fully and incorporate a greater understanding of not merely what you create within your reality, but how you create it and what direction you are exploring.
LORRAINE: All right, thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
LORRAINE: I donít really have a whole lot of specific questions, Elias. I do have a question about a thing that happened a couple of weeks ago. I was driving in the car ... this is how well I donít know myself. I really believe that I feel that I choose objectively not to hit animals in the road, letís call it that. You know, not to run over anything. I thought I had a little agreement with them that they werenít going to run in front of my car and I wasnít going to run over them. But a couple weeks ago I had a possum that it, late at night in the road ... and I wound up trying to miss it but Iím pretty sure I hit it. I wanted to find out, because I feel sometimes like I donít ... I know that youíve said this before, that a lot of us feel that something else is creating our reality, but I feel like maybe subjectively I agreed to that, but objectively I really donít feel that I agree to do those things. I donít want to participate in that. I consciously do not want to participate in that type of event, and I donít understand why I created it or why I agreed to participate in it. Can you enlighten me a little on that?
ELIAS: And this is an example of paying attention to thought to the exclusion of other information.
LORRAINE: What other information was I excluding?
ELIAS: Let me express to you first of all, thought is a translator. It is reality, but it is a specific mechanism. It is a translating mechanism. And in this, as it is designed to be creating a specific action, it is NOT designed to create your reality. It also does not necessarily precede what you create.
Therefore, you express within your beliefs that if you create a thought process which expresses specifically an agreement per se, that this shall be engaged and created within your reality for you have expressed it within thought, and the belief is that thought precedes and generates your reality.
I express to you, thought is designed to translate what you are creating. But thought is influenced by your beliefs and also by your attention. Therefore, if your attention is not directed to avenues of communication, thought may not necessarily accurately translate what you are creating. In addition, you incorporate the belief that your subjective awareness is almost a separate entity from yourself objectively and that it directs certain creations within your reality or choices that you are not in agreement with or that you objectively are not choosing.
Now; once again I shall express to you, this is quite incorrect. There is no aspect of yourself that is creating your reality [that is] hidden from you. It may be expressed that your awareness is not paying attention objectively to what you are creating, but it is not hidden. It is quite objectively expressed, for this is the design of your physical reality. Even communications of the subjective to the objective are expressed in an objective manner that you may efficiently translate.
Now; you express an identification of what you do not wish to be creating, but you have created it. Therefore, you are offering yourself the opportunity to recognize that the thought is inconsistent with the choice. This is significant, my friend. This is not a question of agreements, so to speak; it is an action that you have chosen to be moving your attention. You have expressed that you wish to be creating movement in familiarizing yourself with you more fully and understanding self more fully and objectively, and in this, you are moving your choices in alignment with that desire.
Now; you choose to be creating actions that you shall pay attention to and question. In this, what you are actually questioning is not necessarily the creation itself in objective imagery, but you are questioning your beliefs and your definitions of certain aspects of your reality. You are questioning whether you create all of your reality or not, whether you co-create your reality with other individuals or creatures, whether you are creating the creatures themselves and every other aspect of your reality, or whether they create themselves. You are questioning your beliefs and redefining terms and reality, allowing yourself to move your perception by familiarizing yourself with what and how you create in your individual reality.
LORRAINE: If you say so. It still doesnít feel like I know that Iím creating these things, or I feel that Iím creating those things.
ELIAS: I am understanding, my friend. But what I am expressing to you is that you are merely beginning opening this door to allow yourself to explore and genuinely examine and move into an action of experimentation objectively to allow yourself a clearer understanding of what remains to be a concept in your perception, that you actually do create all of your reality. This is not quite moved into a genuine expression of reality in your focus, for you continue to view this merely as a concept.
LORRAINE: Well, like I said before I really donít have a whole lot of specific questions. I know I created this ending of my job, which just ended yesterday. Iím now unemployed and that was my choice. I donít know how to ask this question, because I know what youíre going to say, to a degree. (Laughing, and Elias chuckles)
I want to objectively figure out what I really want to do with my life. Like I said before, Iíve had a lot of different jobs and Iíve tried a lot of different careers and Iíve done many things, and Iím not crazy about any of them. Iím now at a point where Iím not working, so it sort of would be a good time to discover what it is that I would really enjoy doing. And I guess Iím not really ... I donít really know! I guess I need to work on that.
But I do have an idea about a video and I know that you know what Iím talking about. I had a little Ė I donít know what you would call that Ė a little thing that happened in the car about a month ago when I was thinking about this video, and I sort of got really emotionally excited about it and I had the thought that it would be a good idea to contact a few people, one person in particular about this idea. When I thought about that in the car, a couple of times I got very, very emotional I guess you would call it, like overcome. So I did write a letter and I sent it out a couple weeks ago to this person. As of right now I havenít heard anything. I donít really know what my question is, Elias. What, in your crystal ball, what are the probabilities of my going someplace with this idea? Can you help me? (15-second pause)
ELIAS: In your terms, what is the measure of your motivation in this endeavor?
LORRAINE: The measure of my motivation? Or what is my motivation?
ELIAS: What is the measure of your motivation?
LORRAINE: How motivated am I?
LORRAINE: Well, I would say on a scale of 1 to 100, it actually changes. There are periods of time when I kind of, I guess you would say Iím really into it, where I would say the motivation is very high like that, the couple times when Iíve been in the car and Iíve been thinking about it. At other times like right now, I would say the motivation, the amount of it, has dropped to what level I donít know, maybe 50 percent, maybe less. Is that what you...?
ELIAS: Yes. This is the manner in which you may determine what the probability is of actually creating this manifestation, for you may gauge by each moment.
Let me express to you, each probability is created in the moment, and I may express to you also that in the moments that you incorporate no doubt and generate an energy that does manifest, you shall accomplish that. You do not accomplish within the moments that you are vacillating, for you are not choosing that probability. Are you understanding?
LORRAINE: Are you saying that the way that I felt in the car that day when I was very excited or very much into it, when I felt that way that the probability is very, very high and that I have to be that way all the time?
ELIAS: Not necessarily generating that type of excitement, so to speak, but what you incorporate in that moment besides the excitement is an allowance and a trust in your ability and you are not incorporating doubt. Therefore, in a manner of speaking you are correct, the probability of the manifestation materializing is increased; the potential for your creation is increased. But as you move into a doubt in relation to this manifestation, the potential decreases.
This is your choice ultimately, my friend, but I am offering you information that you may allow yourself to objectively view your own movement, and what allows a manifestation and what does not allow a manifestation in choices. (Lorraine sighs) Many times individuals think they want a particular manifestation, but they do not necessarily choose that manifestation. Or you may think you do not want a particular manifestation, but you create...
LORRAINE: As in the possum.
ELIAS: Correct. This is the reason that it is significant and important to pay attention to the choosing movement of yourself.
LORRAINE: The choosing movement.
ELIAS: Correct, and in this, pay attention to your motivation. For I may express to you also, this is an indicator in another manner of influences that may be occurring within different moments in your focus. As your motivation lessens, what you individually are expressing to yourself is a doubt in relation to your ability to actually generate a particular manifestation, that the generation of this manifestation may be dependent upon the choices of other individuals, when in actuality it is not. It is dependent upon your energy and what you project in creating it.
LORRAINE: All right. Well, Iíll work on that.
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, the inquiry, what do you generate within your focus that offers you an expression of pleasure?
LORRAINE: What do I generate in my focus that offers me an expression of pleasure?
LORRAINE: I think helpfulness to others and animals, I think that has offered me pleasure. I think I like dancing, thatís part of my video idea. Thatís why I sort of like that idea because itís doing something that I do like to do, that I think is fun and I can have a good time with.
Now; allow yourself the recognition that you have moved yourself into a beginning step of familiarizing yourself with you and paying attention to you in this action of your want to be creating what you define as this video. In this, do not limit your choices. Allow yourself to creatively explore these expressions of pleasure, for there are many choices and avenues of movement that you may be incorporating to be allowing yourself to engage those actions.
I am understanding that your direction in this is to be incorporating an action that you view as fun and also to generate currency...
ELIAS: ...and you may create both. I am merely offering to you that you do incorporate many choices in these expressions that you incorporate as pleasurable.
LORRAINE: All right, Elias, we have a few minutes left and I donít really have any more questions. So, if thereís anything you can tell me that I should know, should work on, should do?
ELIAS: I offer to you the suggestion that you allow yourself to be paying attention to communications, choices, and thought, but to not be directing your attention so intensely to thought that you exclude the recognition of choosing and the recognition of communications.
Impressions, impulses, emotions: these are all avenues of communication. You offer yourselves many other avenues of communication within your focuses also. But I may express to you in this time framework presently and in your individual focus, what may be quite beneficial to you in your movement is to allow yourself to specifically pay attention to the communications that you offer to yourself through emotion, impulse, and impression. For, many times you allow yourself to be paying attention to communication that you offer to yourself through imagery, but this also may be mistranslated at times for your attention is very closely associated with your thoughts, and therefore you may be misinterpreting or mistranslating the communications that you are offering to yourself.
This may be expressed less in paying attention to these other avenues of communication, that of emotion, impression, and impulse. As you turn your attention to those communications, also allow yourself to be paying attention to what you are actually choosing and doing. For in these two actions you shall allow yourself to more accurately translate through thought.
LORRAINE: And I do, Elias, have one more quickie. I have been having some pain in my feet, usually in the morning like real early around six oíclock if I get up and go into the bathroom. When I walk to the bathroom the heels of my feet are sore; I sort of limp on them a little bit. Usually thatís just in the morning and by the time I get to work itís usually gone. But it sort of happens every morning and I notice it, I am noticing it, but I donít know why Iím creating it. I donít know what Iím trying to notice. I mean, why am I noticing it, why am I creating it? What am I trying to tell myself? Or am I not trying to tell myself anything?
ELIAS: You are offering yourself physical imagery which is another avenue of communication identifying an uncomfortableness and a difficulty in beginning steps.
ELIAS: But pay attention also to the further communication which expresses to you [that] once you have incorporated the beginning steps, the uncomfortableness dissipates and is eliminated.
LORRAINE: All right, that makes sense.
ELIAS: Quite an efficient expression you have offered to yourself. (Laughs)
LORRAINE: Well, it seems I need you to interpret it for me, though! (Elias laughs) Well Elias, I think thatís it, and I will see you in Pennsylvania next month Ė actually pretty soon, about four weeks. So, thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome, my friend. And I shall be anticipating our objective physical meeting once again.
LORRAINE: Yes, itís going to be lots of fun. (Both laugh) All right, you take care.
ELIAS: To you, as always in great affection, au revoir.
LORRAINE: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 1:29 PM.
