aspects of essence; an overview
ELIAS: “As to aspects, you are essence. I do not appreciate the term of parts. Therefore, I am eliminating parts, for this encourages sections. You do not possess sections. You possess aspects. All of your focuses that you view are aspects of essence, all incorporated within essence, but all separate and individual.” [session 51, November 01, 1995]
ELIAS: “Aspects are incorporated within all focuses, in all dimensions. I have spoken to you of no separation. Essence is not contained, in the direction that you think of. In this, aspects of your essence are incorporated within all other individuals, all other awarenesses, all other dimensions. Facets are those elements of essence belonging, so to speak, to your individual essence.” [session 60, December 10, 1995]
ELIAS: “You hold many, many, many, underline, aspects of essence, more than you may count. There are intersections and interactions occurring continuously with you each from these aspects of essence. They may be alternate selves and their interactions, which we have discussed. They may be probable selves. They may be other aspects of energy within your essence, manifest for helpfulness within a specific situation. Your essence is focused upon you completely, as it is with all of its focuses.” [session 133, November 17, 1996]
ELIAS: “... I have expressed previously the analogy, in comparison to the idea, of different aspects of one focus to be different aspects of YOU, which are you and may not be separated from you, but hold different qualities. I have expressed at times that you may view these different aspects of you in like manner to different emotions that you express. All of these different emotions that you identify are all you. They are all expressions of you and may not be separated from you, but they are all different expressions of you and are not necessarily primarily expressed simultaneously objectively. You do not express anger and joyfulness simultaneously objectively. You choose one or another. Therefore you create a primary expression in like manner to the primary aspect, which is your primary attention and direction of your focus.
You may also liken these different aspects of self in comparison to all of the molecules and all of the cells that make up your physical form, your physical body. All of your physical cells are an element of you. They all move in cooperation with each other to be the expression which creates the projection of your physical form. One may not be removed from your physical form and be projected as you singularly, but one may be removed from you and it shall hold all of the encoding of you. It may not be identified as another individual or belonging to another individual, for it holds your signature. In like manner, all of the aspects of you hold your energy signature. They are all you.
Therefore, in this, the terminology of ‘light-body’ is merely your physical identification of an aspect of self, and I express to you that he is correct in his identification of his recognition of the projection of one aspect of self that may hold physical presence with you each.” [session 428, July 20, 1999]
ELIAS: “You hold one primary aspect that you identify as yourself. This is your objective expression of you and your identification of you, but you hold countless aspects of you, which – as I have expressed many times – are all of the you’s of you, but they are not the primary expression. They are not occupying the primary position in objective expression.
One holds primary expression or position, but within any moment, any other aspect of you may move into primary position and may exchange positions, and in actuality, this is an occurrence that is created quite frequently. You are very often exchanging positions with other aspects of you, other you’s of you. Some of these aspects are expressed more obviously different. Some are expressed so very slightly in difference that objectively, you yourself do not even notice the differences.
Within consciousness, there is an availability of all of the energy of consciousness to be exchanging with other areas of expressed consciousness.” [session 502, November 11, 1999]
ELIAS: “Aspects is an unnecessary term when you are speaking of facets, for this is a given, for aspects encompass all. You have wondered how you are connected to each other, or to other individuals, or to individuals you do not know, or to other focuses and dimensions, without incorporating a counterpart. Your answer to this is that you incorporate aspects in all of these. You do not incorporate facets in everything. When you, speaking as your essence, creates a developmental focus, this is not created by another essence. It is your creation; it is your viewing; it is your focus. It is also your facet. (Pause) You incorporate many alternate selves. These alternate selves are not another individual’s alternate selves. They are your alternate self, which has been created by you. These are facets. All awarenesses that are peculiar to you are your facets.” [session 60, December 10, 1995]
ELIAS: “Within essence, figuratively speaking now, you may view a focus individually being orbited by other aspects of each individual focus. These aspects are what you would view to be latent elements or qualities of the individual focus; you. As you travel through your sojourn of your focus, you draw from these orbiting elements, which are what you might perceive as alternate selves. These interact with you continuously, within consciousness. Within physical objective expression, they, at times, exchange places with you. They hold your vibrational tone quality. Therefore, there is an inter-exchange that may be accomplished.” [session 104, July 14, 1996]
ELIAS: “I express to you that you within your physical form may consume rocks and sustain yourself. You view this as amusing and non-reality. You hold tremendous belief systems, very strong belief systems, as to how you must be maintaining your physical form. What you consume has nothing to do with the maintenance of your physical form. It all works in harmony, and when ANY element of these four aspects is within disharmony, ALL are within disharmony. It makes no difference what you are consuming, in itself. It makes no difference what you hold within emotion, in itself. It is of no consequence what you believe within your spirituality, within itself. It holds no matter what you believe within your psyche, within itself. They all move in harmony to each other. THIS is the area of healing that the Tumold provides. In restoring to a natural state, they lend energy to bringing into alignment and harmony these four aspects of yourselves within your physical focus, within consciousness, objectively and subjectively.
HELEN: ... The four parts of ourselves that you said the Tumold would be helping us to heal and act in harmony, do they have any connection with the four earth, wind, fire, water or whatever of the earth? Is there any connection to the four parts of ourselves?
ELIAS: For the individuals within the Tumold family they hold significance, although they are symbols. They are imagery that they connect to within their exchange of essence, just as you hold imagery within this exchange. I express within this exchange what appears to you to be emotion, for this is what you understand. Therefore, you connect within your imagery and it is expressed. It is a symbol. It is not necessarily a reality outside of this dimension. It is merely a symbol for you, just as these elements of your earth and fire and water and air are also symbols to the individuals belonging to the Tumold family.” [session 250, December 14, 1997]
FORREST: The second question [from a woman named Bunny] is, ‘If we are entirely new and unused consciousness with every aspect, focus, alternate or probable self,’ – she refers to session 126 – ‘then it doesn’t seem to me that we remain, as Seth assured us, our own unique self throughout all of our experiences. I appreciate that we never remain the same as we are always in a state of becoming, but if we are new and unused, it implies that we are indeed a different personality. Help! I may have an identity crisis here! Please explain.’
ELIAS: In the idea that you hold to within physical focus that you are a unique individual identity, it is correct to be expressing that you are not singular. Each individual is continuously within a state of becoming. All of consciousness is in a continuous state of becoming. I have expressed previously in this area that the manner that you view yourselves in within physical focus is quite limited. You view yourselves to be a singular individual.
... Within physical focus, as a focus manifestation, you are not singular. You hold countless alternate selves which are continuously interchanging with you. These alternate selves are all you. They are different aspects of the uniqueness of you, but they are all elements of what you may perceive to be the whole of the individual focus. In expressing that there are countless numbers of these aspects of yourselves, you may envision to yourselves numbers initially, if this be facilitating of an ease in your thought process. You may express that you hold ten thousand alternate selves – although this is figuratively speaking, for in actuality they are numberless – and in this you may also visualize to yourselves that within each moment there is an interchange, an exchange, that is occurring with different aspects of the self. At times within a particular focus, these aspects exchange places, so to speak. One aspect within the focus may be appearing to be dominant. This be the projection of the personality.
In this, in time frameworks that you are creating of different choices, you are exchanging positions with other aspects of self. You exchange with other aspects of self in different activities also. Certain aspects hold greater ability, so to speak, in different actions. Therefore, it is a continual exchange. You also are creating of probable selves quite often within the process of an individual focus. Each time that you are engaging what you would view to be a large or instrumental choice/decision in a specific direction, you are automatically creating a probable self which shall be moving in the direction unchosen.
FORREST: How important a choice is it that defines whether or not an alternate self will be branched off at that point, or a probable self will be branched off at that point?
ELIAS: An alternate and a probable are different.
FORREST: Using the word probable then.
ELIAS: Yes. Probable selves are created within choices that appear to you in your focus as being more extreme. When you are choosing a different direction in your attention than you have chosen previously, or an altering choice of your focus, you automatically create probable selves. Now; be understanding that as you create a probable self scenario, you are not creating of merely one probable self. You are creating multiple probable selves that shall be experiencing all of the alternate choices that you have not chosen to actualize within the framework of this officially accepted reality.
An example of this action which has been partially stated previously would be to view yourself throughout your focus. As you are choosing to be attending a specific school, you create probable selves which move in different directions. As you attend a school, you create probable selves that do not attend a school. As you move into different relationships, you create probable selves. As you move away from different relationships, you create probable selves. Each decision or choice that you choose throughout your focus which may appear to you as an alteration in your direction, in ANY direction, this action is creating of probable selves which also move in alignment with yourself, although holding independence and free will and the ability of choice within themselves, once created.
There is an element of the existence of these probable selves that follows you and your existence. This is not to say that this may not be altered by the probable self or by influence of another individual. These probable selves may be accessed. You may interact with them. You may be encountering of them, given that you allow yourself the ability to be interactive objectively with them. This be a different type of situation than that of aspects. Aspects of self are YOU.
I have expressed previously that an analogy to this concept may be to view yourself and all of the different complexes that are you. Each emotion that you hold is a part of you which may not be separated from you but is not the whole of you. Each thought that you possess is an element of you but is not the whole of you and also may not be separated from you, but it is a priori within itself, although not separable from you. In this respect, alternate selves’ aspects are the same. They are interchangeable.
You may hold many moods. At any given moment you may be experiencing one mood, and within another moment you may be experiencing another mood. These are you, but they are different aspects of you. Another example of objective evidence that you may view of alternate selves, of aspects of self, would be demonstrated within an individual focus within experiences. You may experience differences within your focus that you are noticing of. You are expressing differently than you are accustomed to. You may be creating of new experiences which seem to you to be slightly inconsistent with your previous creations. This is a recognition that you have exchanged positions with another aspect of yourself. You may consistently respond to another individual in the same manner, and within one moment you may begin responding to the individual slightly differently. This is an exchange of an alternate self, another aspect of you.
I have stated previously, this particular dimension of physical focus is extremely complex. There are many aspects of this particular physical dimension that far exceed your objective comprehension presently, although this is not to say that you do not hold the ability to access this information, for you do.” [session 269, March 19, 1998]
MICHAEL: “Alright, my next one was that me and my mother have been going back and forth. We have a little bit of confusion on the differences between a fragment and an aspect, like what they are.
(Vic’s note: Following are some good explanations of aspects, fragments, splinters, and probable selves. Great question, Michael!)
ELIAS: Aspects are all elements of yourself within all areas of consciousness, within all dimensions. You hold countless aspects. In the like manner that you within this particular physical focus may express countless thoughts which project from you and are elements of you, you also hold countless you’s within this particular dimension and also within other dimensions. These are all aspects of self.
A fragment is a very different definition. A fragment is that element – that personality element – of an essence which chooses to be fragmented in becoming its own essence, new to itself, in what you may term to be apart from an original essence, although I shall be reminding you that some of these terms are figurative, for there is no original essence and there is no separation. Therefore, you are not splitting apart from something; but a fragment is the development of a new personality essence of energy that is unique to itself and also holds all of the information of all that has preceded it, so to speak.
MICHAEL: Okay. So then the essence that is fragmented shares one of the same personalities as the essence it was fragmented from, correct?
ELIAS: It shares qualities. It holds its own personality, its own tone, but it holds the qualities and all of the information of the fragmenting essence.” [session 279, May 12, 1998]
PAUL: “You’ve delivered a lot of information on different actions such as fragmenting and splintering of essence and focuses and such, and you’ve used two terms, aspects and facets, and recently you’ve not used the term facets at all, I believe. So my question is, what is the difference, in your terms, of using the term ‘aspects’ versus ‘facets’ of essence?
ELIAS: Within the time period that these terms were offered, the engagement was with these individuals of what you may express to be our initial forum. These individuals held very little objective understanding of many of the concepts which have been offered within this forum, and for clarification reasons I was offering of certain terminology to be more clearly expressive of certain concepts, and in this, separating for them different types of actions and manifestations, that they may more clearly understand all of the different aspects of themselves, of essence, for these are difficult concepts. (Vic’s note: in other words, we were clueless!)
As we move more fully into more of an awareness within this shift in consciousness, individuals are not needing of such separation within language for their understanding of these concepts. Therefore, it is unnecessary for myself to be separating aspects and facets and probable selves and splintering in these manners, but for understanding purposes previously, it was more efficient to be offering such terminology.
Facets are those aspects of self, as you are aware, that manifest into focuses, but all elements of essence are considered to be aspects. This term is encompassing of all of the elements or creations or manifestations of essence, physical and non-physical. This concept is becoming more easily assimilated by individuals presently.
As I have expressed to you previously, this shift in consciousness escalates now and is moving more rapidly in the area of individuals’ objective awareness. Therefore, many concepts and clarifications that have been offered previously are unnecessary to be offering presently or continuing for the understanding of the forum within this present now. They have already engaged elements of their periphery. It is unnecessary to be offering extensive explanations to them as to the actions and abilities of self, for they have engaged this already.
These individuals that were in attendance of previous sessions at the onset of this forum held very little awareness objectively in these areas, but have quite efficiently moved into an expansion of their awareness and have opened to their periphery, which I offer my acknowledgment in this to them all.
PAUL: So are you saying, Elias, that you will no longer use the terminology of facets then, in the way that you did at that time, and that you will then use the term aspects in its place?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. There are individuals which shall present themselves in drawing themselves to this forum, and within probabilities, at those time periods I may be returning to certain terminology for clarification and for their understanding. But for the most part, this is unnecessary and shall not be incorporated into our discussions, for as I have stated, individuals drawing themselves to this forum presently have already opened to their periphery to an extent and already hold an understanding objectively of that which I speak. Therefore, it is unnecessary to be so very clarifying in the terminology.” [session 300, July 21, 1998]
RODNEY: “I would like to talk to you or ask you some questions regarding dream images that I have, and a singular, unusual experience. The first is an experience I had almost ten years ago. I had awakened from a nap in the late afternoon, and I thought I saw a small doll suspended in the air about an arm’s length from me, a warrior. I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if it was really there?’ and I attempted to touch it. To my surprise, as I was holding out my finger, I felt my finger being pressed between two giant fingers. I was so taken that I almost fainted back into a sleep, and I thought, ‘This is too good to be true.’ And with that, I felt a kiss upon my lips, and was very, very moved by this entire experience. I was hoping that you might be able to look at this experience and relate to me what is going on here that I have not been able to see, because what I’ve related to you is about all that I know of it.
ELIAS: Very well. Let me express to you that within this experience, you have offered yourself the opportunity to be interacting with another aspect of yourself. Initially, you have imaged this as this doll in the form of a warrior. This is another aspect of yourself which lies latent within this particular focus. This is not another focus of yours, but another aspect of yourself within this particular focus which is a latent quality.
Now; in this let me explain to you that all of these aspects of self are, within themselves, as other individual selves. They all hold the same qualities in consciousness that you recognize as yourself, but they identify with their attention in specific areas just as you identify in specific areas, recognizing you as the you that you know.
In this, other aspects of you may be likened to probable selves, but in difference to probable selves, they are not projections from you that you project away from yourself, offering those aspects the opportunity to be experiencing within their own right, independent of you, another reality; but these aspects are what you may term to be alternate selves. These alternate selves exist as elements of you.
In this, you have in actuality allowed yourself the opportunity to view and to be connecting with and interactive with another alternate self of your own. Therefore, as you reach to touch this alternate self, you do not experience what you may consider to be a barrier, but you also do not in actuality touch the alternate self physically. Instead, what you experience is another element touching you. This would be that aspect responding – the alternate self responding – to you and touching back, so to speak, you, in acknowledgment of your interconnectedness and of your accessing of this alternate self.
The experience that you have held subsequent, in the feeling of this great affection, is that expression which is offered to you of the great lovingness and affection that is held within all of the aspects of self to each other and to the objective awareness, for they are all elements of yourself, but in a manner of speaking are all also independent, simultaneous to being intertwined with you and elements of you.” [session 309, August 22, 1998]
VICKI: “I have some questions that I’ve been curious about for a long time, basically based on what I see as some very interesting contradictions in the material, actually blatant contradictions that to me are more black and white than ever existed before, since the sessions started. I’m not sure exactly how to approach this, so I’ll use the last three examples I’ve noticed.
One was regarding essence names and families for a couple of friends of Vivien’s. Forrest asked some questions about them, and then she asked them later in her session, and all the answers were different. One of the other ones was this whole deal with the essence name of Bistell versus Bissell, which was quite clear on the tape but was offered differently at different times. And the third one I thought was actually quite interesting, in one of the most recent transcripts I transcribed, with you seeming to get the Acceptance 101 and 102 backwards, as far as acceptance of self and acceptance of others, and switching them in your definitions in that session.
It seems to me that this is imagery of something. I don’t know if it has to do with the actual phenomenon itself, but that’s my feeling, that there’s information about the phenomenon in this, and so I’m curious what you would have to offer about that.
ELIAS: This would be an element or what you may term to be an aspect of the action of this phenomenon within itself, although within the translation of essence names and essence families, there are alterations in these areas that essences are engaging. Therefore, within different time periods there may be offered difference in information concerning the tone of the essence, and not only the tone but also the families and alignments, depending upon the mergence of that particular essence in an action with other essences.
In this, this may seem to be inconsistent, but be remembering that essences are continuously in motion and continuously altering aspects of their reality, and in this action, as I have presented you with information concerning the essence of Rose as an example, this is not unique to that one essence.
In this, as each essence chooses to be interactive and merging with other essences, this is altering at times of their alignments and of their belonging to any specific essence family. These are not elements that are set definitely or absolutely.
This is a different type of action than that which you would identify as a particular essence creating its own choice to be altering its family alignment or moving into belonging to a different family. It is an automatic action that would be occurring in the mergence of several essences, creating new tones for certain aspects of the essence; not necessarily creating a new essence, which would be in the direction of fragmentation, but temporarily altering the tone and also altering the family involvements with those particular essences.
All of the essences involved in those mergences would be altered temporarily, and would be focusing their attention or their intent in different manners.
This is a temporary action. Therefore, at times you may be receiving different information as to families and essence names.
This be the reason also that you may receive certain information from other essences identifying an essence family and alignment for one certain individual within physical focus, and you may later, so to speak, receive slightly different information or entirely different information from another essence. It is not that they are tapping into different information. They are merely identifying, within the now, the alignment and the belonging to of that particular essence within your present time framework. This is a changeable action.
Now; I have expressed to you previously that individuals and singular essences do not commonly change their essence family, or within a particular focus it is not common for them to be changing their alignment either. It is an occurrence, but it is not a common occurrence.
In this, I am expressing to you that it is not common for an individual essence to be altering of their essence family and altering the alignments of different focuses permanently as they continue to be within a particular physical dimension, but this action of mergence with other essences is a continual action that is altering of intents and of tones temporarily.
This also is the reason that certain individuals at certain time frameworks are designated with more than one essence family alignment in one time period. This also, as you have observed within this forum, appears to you within your physical focus and your understanding to be unusual. This is not an unusual action, that an individual may fluctuate with their alignment within a specific time period.
This is not to say that they continue this action throughout their focus, but within that particular time period that you identify in time within your linear time framework, there is an action of mergence occurring with that essence and other essences which merges in different intents and that shall be expressed through certain focuses. Not all of the focuses of each essence shall be affected, but certain focuses of the essences shall be affected, and certain other aspects of those particular essences shall be affected.
Therefore, this is the explanation for this seeming inconsistency within identification of essence names or families.
As to other actions or information which is offered within this forum, you shall be receiving at different time periods elements of information that you shall perceive to be quite inconsistent or contradictory. These shall be few, but I have stated to you that within any energy exchange, there is an element of distortion.
Each time we enter into a new phase, so to speak, of this energy exchange, there are alterations that are being accommodated, and in this, the energy moves in a different manner. Therefore, the translation is also altered and adjusted to be accommodating the energy, and within certain time periods there shall be certain elements of distortion.
Now; in this element of distortion, as you yourself have stated, you shall hold the ability to identify quite clearly an element of distortion.
Many individuals, within their thought process, look to this energy exchange and many other energy exchanges in the manner of attempting to identify bleed-throughs of belief systems, which I have expressly explained to you, within this particular phenomenon there is very little of. This would not be the concern of the distortion element within this particular energy exchange, for within the agreement of this particular energy exchange, Michael [Mary] has been in agreement to be subjectively removing and therefore not influencing in the area of distorting through belief systems, allowing a clearness within the information. But as different aspects of this essence move in and out of the translation element of this particular energy exchange, at times you may be noticing obvious inconsistencies. This is merely an element of translation.
I have offered you little information in this area, but I have expressed to you that there is a very intricate process, so to speak, that is engaged in filtering the energy into formation through layers of consciousness to be creating of this particular type of energy exchange. The energy exchange is different in this manner than many other energy exchanges that you may experience, as we have discussed within our discussions of different essence families and their expressions in like manner.
In this, there is a function, so to speak, of manipulating energy through different layers of consciousness and constructing that energy into the form of language. Within this particular process, there may be at times elements of distortion in this area.
As I have expressed to individuals previously within this forum, the energy is not constructed in the manner of communicating with you in thought patterns. I do not communicate to you within the construction of thought. Therefore, the energy is not being configured within your physical dimension as thought, as YOU construct energy to be communicating with each other. You initially create a thought process, which is actual constructs of energy, and this is manipulated into your language. There is a different action which is occurring.
This be the reason that I express to you also that I am not engaging in telepathy with you as I engage you within an objective manner, although individuals within physical focus move automatically into those areas that are known to them. Therefore, you think in familiar terms. You think to yourselves that I may be connecting with you and answering you by reading your thoughts, and I express to you that this is not the action that I engage. I engage an action of connection with your energy, which offers me the information in a subjective manner. What appears to you as an objective interaction within language and physical movement, as I have expressed previously, may be considered almost an illusion.
This may be placed in a very similar type of idea for each of you, as what you now know to be as a hologram within your technology. This is a projection of energy. It is a manipulation of your construct of energy that you may understand within familiar terms, for my energy holds a very different type of construct, in very similar manner to the explanation that I have offered you previously of what you view to be your extraterrestrials. Their actual form or communication is very different from your physical dimension. Therefore, within the translation, YOU create a translation that you may identify with in agreement with this other dimension, that you may understand the communication which occurs.
These other focuses that you hold within other dimensions do not communicate with you telepathically, but you interpret the communication that you engage and you receive as being a telepathic communication in your language. They do not speak another language to you. They speak to you in the language that you shall understand. Therefore, individuals that encounter other focuses of their essence within another dimensional focus are quite understanding of the communication that is being engaged. My communication with you filters through a physical form, but I am not engaging the same type of energy manipulation that you engage within physical focus.
This also be the reason that there is an affectingness of physical form in conjunction with Michael’s [Mary’s] removal of his own subjective interaction with the physical body consciousness. The energy which is exchanged with this physical body consciousness is entirely different. It is not as you may think of, as myself being a ghostly image (grinning) that ‘pops into’ Michael’s [Mary’s] body and ‘fills’ Michael’s [Mary’s] body in a similar form, and manipulates the energy of the body consciousness in the same manner as you manipulate your body consciousness. This is an entirely different type or expression of energy which filters through the physical form, facilitating language and a type of communication that you shall identify with. In this, the body consciousness IS responsive and rejecting of this type of energy, for it is entirely unfamiliar to the physical form within a physical dimension.
In conjunction with this, I have expressed to all of you many times that you are not singularly you. There are countless you’s that exist simultaneously with you. These are the aspects of you that are continuously interactive and exchanging with you. This is a very difficult subject for you to assimilate within physical focus, for you view yourselves to be one physical form. You view your one physical form to be the same throughout the entirety of your focus, and in this you watch your one physical form grow and develop, within your terms – alter its shape and its appearance – but continuing to be you singularly. I have expressed to you many times, this is NOT the situation!
This is what you objectively view, but in reality, this is not the occurrence. There are COUNTLESS you’s that are continuously exchanging. You merely notice infrequently, at brief time periods, that you may be expressing yourselves in manners that appear to you to be unusual, and in these expressions you express to each other, ‘I do not feel myself today. I have moved in unusual manners today. I have been creating unusual behavior today.’
FRANK: And sometimes not being accepting of yourself, more so than other days? Like sometimes you’re fine, but you say, ‘This is not right.’ You just feel like a non-acceptance of yourself?
ELIAS: Yes. These are all expressions in objective, more extreme, obvious terms of this interaction of the exchange of the countless you’s. There are also other obvious expressions of these exchanges, for at times ... and I AM moving to a point! (Grinning at Vic)
At times you may also experience unexplained memory lapses within your physical focus. You may, in different expressions, hold memory lapse in some areas. Let us provide the example of, you enter into your physical focus.
You are born, so to speak, into your physical focus. You hold a memory for a time period, to the age of 5 years, and between 5 years and 9 years, you hold a complete memory block and you do not hold a memory of that time period, and your memory returns at 9 years and continues, and within the years of 20 and 22, you hold another memory block. Within your psychology, you shall attribute this to trauma that has occurred within certain time frameworks of your focus, that you have created a block within your memory. Very incorrect! It is not necessarily an expression of trauma, for you may be experiencing no trauma and this shall occur.
You may also experience within certain individuals an entire lack of memory within a block of time framework. Some individuals experience this within their entire childhood, so to speak, from birth to a certain age. Other individuals incorporate different segments of their childhood – or adolescence or adulthood – that they hold these memory lapses, so to speak.
In actuality, what is occurring is an exchange of position of different aspects of you, where you have designated one aspect of you to be the main framework of attention, that which you identify as you; that element, that elusive, nondescript part of you that you may not identify to yourselves as being the you of you; that which you know is yourself. It is not your thought process; it is not your emotion. It is an elusive element that you may not necessarily define yet. This is your consciousness, your awareness, and your FOCUS OF ATTENTION.
In this, the focus of attention exchanges with different aspects, and as it allows a focus of attention to exchange entirely and move into different positions, this would be figuratively what I have expressed to you of the many you’s of you; that if you are figuratively viewing this action, you may view countless physical forms of you simultaneously existing within this space arrangement.
One is designated as the focused attention. All of the others are continuously moving in and out and influencing, but one continues to hold the focus of attention. As you exchange and move into positions, another may move into the position of the focus of attention.
Now; each focus of attention holds its own memory. This is not to say that that memory is not accessible to all of the focuses of attention. All of the aspects are of the same focus. Therefore, they are all simultaneously one. They are aspects of the same focus. Therefore, they all share the memory and the experience, but their attention is focused differently.
In this, your psychology also moves in the direction of expressing its success in moving in directions of incorporating your exercise that you term to be hypnosis, and then the individual may access the memory that is supposedly hidden from them, for they hold the memory, but they objectively are focusing their attention differently. A different aspect is engaging objectively. The memory exists and is available, and it is not necessary to be engaging hypnosis, for the action of hypnosis is merely the action of relaxing your focus.
ELIAS: As you relax your focus, and you – in figurative, objective, physical terms – allow your vision to blur and are not holding so very intently to one particular focus of attention, you allow your awareness objectively to float and to drift from one aspect of self to another, and in this, as an individual directs and facilitates your attention, you allow your attention to drift into other aspects of yourself and access the information of the memory.
It is not hidden from you, but it is not perceived objectively by all of the aspects simultaneously, for you have created this dimension to be viewing singularly, slowly and singularly, that you may be experiencing the fullness of each experience.
In this, I offer the analogy, as I have offered previously – which you are not understanding of – of the comparison of your emotions, for you understand your emotions and may objectively identify these elements of yourself. They are not elements that you see. You may not touch them; you may not hold them. This presents a very good correlation in the area of comparison of aspects of self.
You may hold an emotion of anger. At the moment that you engage the emotion of anger, you are not engaging the emotion of happiness. You are not experiencing an emotion of giddiness. You are experiencing an emotion of anger, and that shall be the focus of attention, and within that time framework you may engage the emotion of anger for ... let us express three hours. Within that three hours, you shall not express giddiness. It shall not be within your attention.
This is not to say that you do not hold this emotion and that you may not express this emotion, and as you move out of your expression of your emotion of anger and you experience the emotion of giddiness, the emotion of giddiness holds no memory of anger. They are different. One does not hold the memory of the other, but they are both held by you, and you identify them all and you are familiar with them all and you may access them all. Therefore, you may also access the memory of them all, but you shall not be experiencing the memory of one within the action of another.
In like manner, you may be moving into different positions with different aspects of self, and within the experience of each aspect, within that focused addressing to attention, you shall not be engaging the memory of another aspect. It is available to you, but it shall not be objectively experienced within the time framework of the exchange of position of different aspects.
Now; in addressing to your question [about the acceptance 101/102 “mistake"], this may offer you more of an understanding and a base to build your objective understanding upon, in the direction of conceptualizing the exchange of energy within this particular energy exchange. There are countless aspects of this essence that is exchanging with Michael [Mary]. The presentment of the configuration of energy, which is filtered through layers of consciousness and expressed in an objective manner through the physical form of Michael [Mary], is manipulated in a manner that it may be presented to you in a consistent form. Therefore, you allow yourselves a trust and an allowance and an acceptance of the projection. If it be continuously altering, this would be unfamiliar to you, and in this you would not be as accepting of the expression, for you magnate to what is familiar.
Also, as I have expressed to you many times, you create fearfulness in elements of unfamiliarity. Therefore, if the expression is presented with MUCH fluctuation, this would be influencing in the area of your own fearfulness, for you do not remember the energy of essence. You are within an unfamiliar area of physical focus. This lends itself to your creation of fear, for you are moving within an unfamiliar area of consciousness, but within this unfamiliar area, that which is known is also unfamiliar, for you have created a veil to forget, but you allow yourselves the ringing true, and this is your knowing.
In this expression, there is a constant exchange of aspects of this essence, for this essence occupies non-physical areas of consciousness and has removed the manifestation within physical dimensions. Therefore, it also is not confined, so to speak, in the expression of energy of singularity, and in this lack of confinement and lack of time element, which is also very influencing in the manipulation of energy, there is a free-flowing, constant exchange of countless aspects of essence moving through very different types of expressions.
At times within this energy exchange, this becomes quite obvious objectively to you, and you objectively may even experience physically a difference within the energy itself, which has been identified to you previously as an action of a different aspect of this essence manipulating energy through the energy exchange. There is an attempt by this essence to incorporate few of those expressions, but they shall appear, for there is a continuous exchange.
Michael [Mary] and yourselves are choosing your time frameworks to be engaging this energy exchange. Therefore, dependent upon the time framework – within YOUR linear time – that you are choosing to be engaging this energy exchange, you may be tapping a different aspect of this essence.
In this, let me also express to you, this is not to say that you are generally, continuously engaging the same aspect for the most part, for you are not. You are engaging the similar tone of the aspects. There are many aspects that hold similar tone.
VICKI: In difference to a more unfamiliar tone.
ELIAS: Correct. Therefore, in this – for the most part, in your terminology – you access the area of consciousness of this essence that holds similar tone; many, many different aspects of it.
This be the reason also, I shall share with you within this present now, that you may experience less obvious expressions of differences within this energy exchange. At certain time frameworks, you may experience an energy exchange that I – that you identify as Elias – may be translating and speaking to you much more rapidly, and other time frameworks, the expression within language, within words, may appear to be more labored or slow.
This is a translation of the energy vibration of those particular aspects. They hold very similar tone, and therefore your objective identifications shall seem the same. It shall be familiar to you. This shall be the presentment of your friend Elias, the personality that you are familiar with.
In actuality, it is an exchange of many, many different aspects of this same essence, and therefore you engage many different expressions in slightly altered areas.
The vibrational quality of one aspect may be more rapid than another. Therefore, the translation in energy which filters through these layers of consciousness may appear, in physical terms in your language, as speaking more quickly. Some aspects of the essence may hold more difficulty in manipulating the energy through these layers of consciousness to be creating of the translation into objective physical words in language. In this, there may be what you term to be stumblings.
I have expressed previously, there is energy interference. This is not necessarily to express to you that another essence is interfering, so to speak, with the energy exchange. There may be an interference with this energy exchange, but it is not necessarily another essence. It is the exchange of energy, within a translation, of different aspects of this one essence, and certain aspects may not be focusing their attention so very directly.
Michael [Mary] expresses a knowing of a difference within the energy of this exchange, within his experience of this energy exchange, and expresses to you in physical terms of, ‘This time framework is more directed. This time framework is more scattered. This time framework is more intense.’ These are different expressions of different aspects, and he is experiencing the difference in the directedness of the energy exchange, and there ARE different expressions of this energy exchange.
In this, as you infrequently identify certain obvious contradictions within the information, at times this may be attributed to the translation by another aspect.
The information is constant. The information is the same. The manipulation of energy into actual language and words may become distorted, for the energy, as I have stated, is not being filtered through thought processes. Therefore, it is not that the essence is ‘channeling,’ so to speak, energy through layers of consciousness, accessing Michael’s [Mary’s] physical brain, creating of physical thought processes and physical impulses within brain patterns, and then translating into words. This particular element is bypassed, for it is inefficient and also quite slow. It is merely another area of consciousness that would be engaged to be filtering through another aspect of translation, which would be incorporating of more distortion. Therefore, there are certain elements of the translation that are eliminated or bypassed to be filtering out elements of distortion, for within the intent of this essence, it is to be presenting within the least amount of distortion.
This be also why I have expressed to you that there is no energy exchange that incorporates NO distortion. This would not be an action that you may be incorporating in this type of situation of energy exchange. Just as within your physical languages, which is a mirror image of consciousness, you may not entirely, literally, without any element of distortion translate one language into another language, I may not translate energy into your language without any element of distortion.
Now; it IS clarifying for you to be inquiring in these areas, for not all of these appearances of what you think of as distortions ARE in actuality distortions. Some of these are purposefully stated. There are time frameworks – that I have noticed (grinning) – with yourself, Lawrence [Vicki], that you may be engaging your transcribing, and you are holding questionings as to my choice of words in certain areas, and in certain areas those particular words have been chosen purposefully and are not what you may term to be a mistake, and are also not a distortion. But there are other time frameworks that you may notice certain aspects are less adept, so to speak, at manipulating words, and may be stumbling quite often, within one engagement of one session repeatedly, of physical words. At other time frameworks, there may be no mistakes, so to speak, incorporated at all.
The overall expression is consistently the same, with the exception of very infrequent exchanges of certain other aspects holding an obvious difference in tone, and this shall be quite obvious to you all.
VICKI: Which I have experienced.
ELIAS: Yes, and in this, you each shall quite obviously hold an awareness that there is a very different aspect in tone expressing through this energy exchange. For the most part, there is a purposeful expression in offering a consistency in tone that you may identify with, for this, as I have stated, offers you a familiarity, which creates a trust and an acceptance of what is being offered to you. And in this area – within the objective, within the agenda, and within the offering of this information – it is of importance that you ARE accepting of the information, for you have asked for this information. It would be defeating of the purpose, so to speak, to be offering this information in a manner that would be presenting fearfulness to you.
VICKI: So this Acceptance 101/102 thing falls into this category?
VICKI: One question I have about this is, the people that are objectively engaging you, do they have a part in this at times?
For example, I’ve noticed a consistency in a certain type of interaction with you and certain individuals. I’ll use Forrest for an example. It was real obvious, to me in my perception, that there was ... well, I’ll term it an aspect now, that was not real familiar to me, but there was a consistency in your interaction with him; very unanimated, far less vocal inflections. Is there a part that the individual plays in which aspect interacts?
ELIAS: Let me express to you once again, for clarity purposes: there is not one aspect that consistently interacts with you that you recognize as Elias, and another aspect here and there that moves into position. It is a CONTINUOUS altering. It is a continuous movement of continuously exchanging different aspects. Therefore, it is not the situation, as you are speaking in this particular circumstance, that one particular aspect shall be drawn or summoned to this one individual and exchanging with this one individual, as opposed, so to speak, of another aspect being summoned to be engaging with another individual. There is a CONTINUOUS, CONSTANT exchanging of aspects.
Therefore, you may or may not be engaging the same aspect within any of your objective engagements. You may engage this action of energy exchange for 20 of your physical years, and you may be exchanging frequently upon what you term to be a regular basis interval, and you may never access the same aspect ... but you may.
In this, the expression that is created with certain individuals is influenced by the energy of those individuals, but the aspect – whichever aspect is exchanging through and translating – shall recognize that energy and shall be responsive in a very similar manner. Therefore, it matters not which aspect you are engaging, unless it may be an aspect – as you have held experiences with previously – of a more different tone, and in this, the entirety of the expression would be altered and would be appearing quite differently. But as I have expressed, for the most part, generally speaking, each aspect that holds similar tone that engages this energy exchange, in the familiarity to you all, shall be responsive in a very similar expression and manner to each individual’s energy.
Therefore, as what you perceive to be myself, as I engage you or you or you (looking at each one of us) or Ellius [Forrest] or any other individual, I shall appear consistently to engage each of you individually in a very similar manner, and this is a responsiveness to your energy. How you interact and project energy to me and how I am subjectively interactive with your energy within a physical focus is very influencing of the objective expression, and shall be quite consistent in that area.
VICKI: This continuous exchange of aspects, does it happen within the context of even one session ?
ELIAS: At times, yes. Within the energy exchange, within one time framework of what you view to be one session, you may also be noticing an exchange, a difference. This held an occurrence quite often in what you view to be the early throes of our engagement within this forum. You may be noticing, if you are choosing to be re-accessing those particular sessions, within the initial time framework of each session, a much slower and even pace, so to speak, was expressed, and within the second portion of each of those sessions, there appeared to be more of a rapid motion and engagement, in your objective translation of language. This would be the continuous action of the exchanging of aspects.
As your time framework moves forward, in your terms, this action appears to be less frequent, for within the beginning throes of this energy exchange, as I have expressed to you previously, the energy has been expressed in a more scattered manner. Therefore, the allowance of the continual expression of movement has been incorporated into the energy exchange.
As the energy of the essence acclimates to the functioning and the manner of exchange – the filtering through – there becomes more and more of a directedness in the energy exchange. This be what Michael [Mary] identifies as becoming stronger and stronger. In his perception, it IS becoming stronger and stronger, for just as I have expressed to you our analogy of our x-rays, the focus of the energy becomes more and more narrowed and directed to be focusing into a beam, and as it focuses more and more into this beam it becomes more and more dense, and in that denseness it creates more of an intensity, which you interpret as strength.
In this, as the energy creates more of a directedness, it also filters out more of the expression of exchanges within one session. One aspect may hold more efficiently for more of a time framework. This is not to say that you continue now to not experience an exchange of aspects within one session time framework, for this is occurring still, but it is not occurring as frequently, and as the energy becomes more directed, this action is filtered out more. But you also may notice obvious small distortions as one moves into position, exchanging from another.
This would be your situation of what you view as an incorrect identification of our Acceptance 101 and 102. An action of exchange has occurred and the same subject matter is continued, but the acclimation to the physical language within that moment may be interrupted, and therefore there may be a distortion element. These may be addressed to and they may be corrected, and for the most part you shall notice that in any area of these distortions, they are not large distortions. They are obvious and they shall be easily corrected, and they are not influencing of the information itself.
VICKI: No. Okay, I have another specific question in this area, along the same lines. Within the same time frame basically, you told Forrest that his family information was Sumafi/Sumafi.
VICKI: In the same frame, somebody asked Patel about this, and he delivered an answer. (This exchange occurred in a computer chat with a group of people) He said that Forrest had been Sumari/Vold, and had recently changed, by choice....
ELIAS: To Vold/Vold. (Grinning)
VICKI: Exactly, and I’ve been curious about this since then. I’m curious about, you know, you have two Sumafi energy exchanges with two different sets of information in the same time framework.
ELIAS: And this would be the same action that I was expressing to you previously, which we began our session this day with. In the action of a mergence of several essences, you may be receiving different information from different essences, depending upon what they are accessing and what they are viewing.
I may be turning attention, within one aspect of this essence, to be viewing another essence to be accessing information to offer to you at your request of the identification of essence families, and as I turn my attention to view another essence, I may be viewing an area of consciousness of the mergence of those essences within that moment, or what you identify to be that moment, and in the angle, so to speak ... these are quite physical terms, I am reminding you, that you may attempt to be understanding. But within that angle of my perception, within my viewing within the moment of the mergence of those essences, the most predominant expression within that moment may be Vold/Vold. (Vic starts to interrupt) Let me express to you, think to yourselves of a fire within physical focus.
You may look physically at a fire burning. There is an action occurring within this burning. The fire is a thing in itself, but it is also in continuous motion. It also is altering itself, for it is incorporating other elements. It is MERGED with other elements. Other elements of your physical existence incorporate into a fire, for the fire is not singular. It incorporates mergence with matter and with air, which are also things in themselves. But within the action of fire, it has merged other elements to itself to be creating of itself. And as you physically view fire, within one moment you may physically look to your fire and view red color. Within another moment, you may look and view your fire and it may appear yellow. Within another moment, you may look at your fire and it may appear blue, for within that moment, that is the predominant color.
It is the same element. It is the fire, but within each moment, its appearance and its expression ... for it is not merely an appearance, but it is also its expression, for the vibrational quality is creating of the appearance of that color. The color does not appear by itself without the vibrational quality. Therefore, the vibrational quality of blue is different from the vibrational quality of red or yellow. In this, there is an entire alteration of what you are viewing. It is a mergence, and the expression is different.
In very like manner, incorporating several essences simultaneously in a mergence, the appearance of the expression of that essence which is merged – for they are no longer one essence individually creating several essences, or they are not several essences together, but they are now one essence temporarily, for they are all merged – in that expression, dependent upon which moment you are viewing the expression of that essence – which is now one essence, for it is merged – it may appear and BE in actuality Vold/Vold, Sumafi/Sumafi, Sumari/Vold, for it is the combination of the elements merged that creates that expression within that moment. (Vic sighs)
This is not inconsistent information. It is correct, and it is not distorted information either. It is merely the viewing of one essence, as Patel (1) or myself, within different moments, viewing the expression and the choice of intent of either the individual essence or that of the essence which is merged, and the expression and intent shall be different within different moments.
And as I have expressed within this session, this may also be an occurrence and the reasoning that I express to you infrequently – within a particular moment of the inquiry that an individual [is] inquiring, ‘What is my essence family and alignment?’ – that within that moment, as I access that information, dependent upon the essence itself or the action of its mergence, I may express, ‘Your essence family is Sumafi aligned with Vold and Zuli.’ You are not holding necessarily entirely through your focus as aligned with these two families, but within that moment of the inquiry, I have accessed the information for you for the response and your answer, and if you are receiving more than one essence family of belonging to or essence family of aligning to, you within your essence ARE within an action, in that moment, of mergence.
One of those families may be expressed consistently through your focus, although at times the expression of mergence may be held in an intensity that it may move in the direction of what appears to be a singularity. It is an overwhelming experience of one particular expression and intent. This be the reason that there shall be expressed, in a situation such as Ellius [Forrest], Vold/Vold, Sumafi/Sumafi. Those are the temporary expressions, for those are the merged expressions.
This is not to say that a merged expression shall always be in the direction of the singular double, so to speak, belonging and alignment, but as you are offered certain expressions in which one essence shall be expressing a double in one area and another essence shall be expressing of the same individual a double in another area of families, this shall be an indication to you that those particular responses – not the changed response of Sumari/Vold – those double responses are the responses in answering you within the moment that that particular essence is experiencing a mergence and moving singularly in their intent and expression.
VICKI: So then in an overview, this individual is Sumari/Vold?
VICKI: Really! You know, that just makes it all so big, though. That makes it really big! It’s hard to think about it that way.
ELIAS: It IS very big! (Grinning, and laughter)
VICKI: And this particular mergence you’re talking about, this would be the same type of mergence you were speaking to Paul about – Caroll – in his question about the SumafiSumari thing? You went into this area of mergence and I didn’t really understand it at the time, but this would be the same type of mergence you were talking about? (2)
ELIAS: Correct. This would also be the action that the essence of Rose (3) has engaged, which I have offered as an example of the diversity of essence, for I have offered you information of Rose purposefully, to be altering your perception.
You move in the direction of thinking of essence as this constant, one element, and it is not. Therefore, as I throw to you the ball of Rose, you become confused, for this is inconsistent with all that you think, but it offers you the example of many different actions that essence holds, which is FAR wider than you allow yourself an understanding of.
As I have expressed recently, this essence [of Rose] moves into a position presently of the action of fragmentation of all of these manifestations, which are not fragmented yet within your linear time framework, but all hold different essence families and alignments, which THIS you do not question! I have expressed to you that your essence holds the essence family – the focuses hold the alignment – but you do not question that I have expressed to you also that each manifestation, each focus of Rose belongs to a different family and aligns with a different family, but is the same essence. This is the diversity of essence, and the ‘beyond’ your physical thought processes and concepts.
And you are quite correct – all of this IS very much larger than you understand or allow yourselves to view! It is INFINITELY bigger. (Grinning) The word infinite means nothing to you. You do not comprehend the VASTNESS of infinite, and even the word vast means nothing to you!
VICKI: It’s almost like you get to the point where ... you know, like my thought process right now is like, why even try to define anything? The next time somebody asks me to define anything, I’m just gonna tell them it’s really big!
ELIAS: Quite! And this would be accurate! (Chuckling, and laughter)
BOBBI: ... I have a question about an experience I had last spring. Vivien hypnotized me and told me to go to a place ... I believe she said that I needed to go, and I was expecting an other-focus experience. As it turned out, I wound up in a place that was like viewing huge petals of flowers, or a cloud. It was various shades of blue; very beautiful, very huge. I was kind of floating in towards it, and as I got more towards the center, little gold squiggly things were coming out of the middle. At the time, it was difficult for me to convey. She was asking what was I experiencing, what was I visualizing, and I’ve had a lot of confusion about exactly where I was in that experience.
ELIAS: In this state of relaxed focus, you are offered directions by the individual that is facilitating, which you shall be complying with as you choose to be relaxing your focus of attention. But in certain situations, the direction that you are being offered may be left to your interpretation, as it is not specifically designated. Within the action of allowing you to choose your own direction, at times there is also a confusion of the language while you are relaxing the attention of the particular focus.
As you enter into this area of relaxing your attention, the individual may express to you that you may be moving into an area that you ‘need’ to be focusing upon, but within your interpretation of this, you may move in the direction of an area that you WANT to focus upon, for the word ‘need’ does not translate well within subjective areas of consciousness, for in actuality, there is no element of need. This is an aspect of belief systems which is recognized by your subjective awareness, that even within your physical manifestation, there is in actuality no actual need of any element, action, or direction.
In this, you automatically translate into a more subjective language and reconstruct this particular instruction into more of an area of a want – what you choose to be focusing upon. Therefore, this opens your window of movement into many different directions, for it is merely dependent upon that moment and what that particular aspect of yourself chooses to be viewing, at their choice within that moment.
In this, your choice within the moment was to be merely viewing to yourself the lack of separation between yourself as you view yourself objectively and that which you create objectively, knowing that in actuality there is no separation, but also continuing to focus your attention within physical elements.
Therefore, you have chosen to focus your attention in the area of presenting yourself with imagery that is of physical creations, but slightly different, for within the lack of separation, the appearance of these links of consciousness that pull together to form your physical creations are not as tightly bound. Therefore, they appear differently within your visualization. You offer yourself a truer visualization than what you physically view with your vision.
Within your physical vision you view objects, and these objects appear very sharp and clear to you, holding very distinct colors and shapes. In your allowance of viewing within this type of relaxed focus, you allow more of your subjective awareness to be entering into your objective viewing. You continue to hold certain elements of form in what is familiar to you, therefore you identify certain shapes, but you also hold a knowing within you that your identification of these shapes seems inadequate.
You view an object, and you express to the other individual in response that this object is a cloud or this object is a flower, but as you are viewing within the experience, the term flower or cloud does not seem quite adequate to be describing what you are actually viewing, for they do not entirely fit what you view within physical focus. In this, what you ARE viewing is more of the lack of separation of yourself and these elements. They are not what they appear, just as you are not what you appear, as we have stated previously within the context of this session. They are elements that are projections from you. Therefore, they are essentially what you may term part of you.
They are not separate entities. This be the reason that they seem clear, but slightly unfocused. They seem within your visualization to hold a crispness and a vividness, but they also simultaneously seem unfocused. They do not hold the solidity that actual objects hold, but they also hold more brilliance. This be the quality of vividness that you offer yourself in these types of visualization. In this, this is allowing yourself to view other elements of yourself, knowing that these elements are parts of yourself or aspects of yourself that you may also choose to be exploring.
Now; this shall lead us once again into the area of viewing the aspects of you. We have discussed all of the you’s of you, which are aspects of you, but there are more aspects of you than merely the you’s of you, for as I have stated previously, all that you view within this physical dimension is a projection of you. There is no separation. It merely appears in your perception, within each moment of linear time, that you are separated and that you hold distinction as entities, separate and apart from any other type of entity.
The vastness of what you are, in many respects within physical focus, is incomprehensible to you. This is also the reason that within the early throes of these sessions I have been encouraging of individuals to be engaging their conceptual sense (4), for this shall lend more of an ease in understanding to you of many of the concepts that I present to you, remembering that all that you designate as concepts are in actuality reality. They are merely not a reality to you within your perception.
... In continuing our discussion of late, let me offer you what you may consider an element of imagery that may futurely offer you information in the area of how you move together within subject matter in what we term to be waves, and that you may validate to yourselves that as you concern yourselves with certain subject matter, other individuals within many other areas are concerning themselves with the same questions of information.
Within our recent three previous session time periods, the same subject matter has been addressed with each individual that has been engaging these objective session times. I have offered you yesterday an extensive explanation of aspects of self, which shall be valuable to other individuals, which I have touched upon this subject with but have not offered detailed information.
Our session time framework of yesterday with Marta [Marcos] (5) was concerning this same subject matter, involving aspects of self and what we were discussing in example of missing time – missing memory of certain years within an individual focus – in the area that another aspect of the focus exchanges positions with a different aspect or the existing aspect which holds the attention, and in the difference in tone, this creates what you view objectively as a loss of memory, although there is no loss necessarily of memory. It merely moves into a subjective position, which you may access.
Now; in further discussion of this, let me offer you an example of comparison that may be a clearer explanation of this action, that you may be understanding what is occurring in this exchange of different positions of aspects of self – all of the you’s of you – which also shall lend to your understanding as to your questioning of this phenomenon and this energy exchange.
I have offered to you the example of your emotions in comparison to the idea or concept of aspects. Now let me further this example, that you may hold a clearer understanding. Let us return to the subject of emotion and let me present to you the emotion of anger, once again, and a slightly different emotion of irritation. These are different emotions, but they hold similar expressions. Therefore, you may be experiencing the emotion of anger for a time period, and you may be moving out of the experience of anger and you may be moving your attention into the emotion of irritation.
Now; given that these two particular emotions are closely related in quality, the emotion of irritation holds an element of memory of anger, and the emotion of anger holds a quality that allows it the memory of irritation. Therefore, as you interchange with these two emotions, as they are closely related within quality, there is an allowance in that expression that you shall hold the objective memory within the experience of the other emotion. As you move away from these particular emotions and you move your experience into an emotion of gleefulness, this particular emotion does not hold similar qualities to those previous emotions. Therefore, objectively it holds no memory within the experience of those emotions.
You shall not be offering yourselves the experience of anger or irritation in the midst of the experience of gleefulness, for it does not hold the same quality. Therefore, it does not hold the memory.
In like manner, throughout an individual focus, aspects of self are exchanging and interchanging continuously, but in like manner to this energy exchange, the aspects that are interchanging and exchanging positions hold like quality tones. In this, there may be slight differences in quality tones which shall not allow the entirety of memory of the other aspects, but shall offer you enough memory of the other aspects which hold similar quality tones that it appears to you within your focus that your memory is unbroken and constant. This also involves your choices of probabilities and an element of your blinking in and out, for many times within certain blinkings you shall be also exchanging with another aspect, but the memory which is unavailable to you objectively is so slight that it is unnoticed by you. You may hold certain events or small time frameworks – minutes or hours, even days – that are not objectively remembered to you, but within the whole of your focus, this objectively goes unnoticed.
You notice breaks. If the memory holds extended time frameworks, if you are experiencing what you term to be a block in memory for an extended time period, this shall gain your attention and you shall hold wonderings of this. Individuals have held wonderings of this action for much time period, and this also has been an element of the development of your psychology science, to be investigating these types of actions within individuals that are unexplained. In this, you have offered yourselves the information that this memory IS easily accessible. It is not lost.
Now; let us turn our attention also to the question of certain individuals that may be experiencing trauma, which within your psychology is the explanation of memory blocking. This would be a different type of action, in part, from the mere exchange of aspects which is causing of what you term to be a memory block or loss, for at times individuals within physical focus are choosing within certain experiences, or soon after certain experiences, to be exchanging with another aspect of self which holds very different quality tones. This is not to be escaping the experience held or to be covering the memory of the experience held, but many times within physical focus, one aspect of self shall choose to be experiencing some event or events in intensity, allowing that particular focus to hold the intensity of experience within given situations. Once these types of experiences have been accomplished, as they ARE held in such intensity, the focus may turn its attention to another aspect of self that may offer a very different type of experience.
It is not for the reason of blocking or covering the previous experience. It is merely that the individual has offered themselves an extreme in intensity of a particular experience, and in this, in conjunction with all of the subjective experiences which are gained through counterpart action, it is unnecessary for the focus to be continuing in any similar manner of expression.
You have each held experiences within your focus that have attained your fascination that may not be of a traumatic nature, so to speak, that you within your identification of these experiences have built in momentum to a certain experience, and once you have accomplished that experience your expression is, to yourself and to other individuals, ‘Oh. I have accomplished this experience. I am done with this. It is unnecessary for me to be repeating this same experience.’ And your attention turns, and you do not occupy your attention any longer with that particular experience. You term this to be ‘moving on,’ and within pleasurable experiences or merely curiosity experiences, you do not move in the direction of offering yourselves explanations that you must be forgetting this experience or covering this experience, but you may find that within years future you are not remembering of that particular experience that you had held such fascination with within that particular time period.
I express this to you to emphasize that this is an area that your science of psychology moves into an incorrectness with, in their assessment that individuals are creating of traumatic experiences or are victims of traumatic experiences, and that your brain automatically is protecting of you and covering these experiences in such manner. This is not the case. It is merely a choice of experience, be it in your assessment and belief systems good or bad, and in this choice of experience, once experiencing the fullness and intensity of such types of experience, you merely move your attention to another aspect of self which may hold a very different quality tone than the previous aspect, and in this, that quality tone aspect shall briefly, initially hold a remembrance of the previous action of the other aspect, but this shall quickly move into a subjective area, almost within your thought process as a holding area of memory, for it is unnecessary to be objectively holding the memory, for this would be influencing of the new experiences.
Now; there ARE individuals that may be exchanging with another aspect of self, and in this exchange they may choose to be exerting the energy required to be objectively continuing the memory of a different quality tone aspect, but these individuals are creating of this action purposefully in alignment with their particular intent, for retaining the memory of certain events and experiences within their focus, which will be influencing of their future probability choices, is beneficial to the movement within their particular intent and their chosen line of probabilities, their pool of probabilities.
This be one of the reasons that you may encounter an individual that has held some extreme experiences in what you term to be negative areas, and they may move through their focus and appear to be very sour, for they carry the memory of the other aspect of self, which is influencing of all of the other aspects of self that exchange. Therefore, it colors the experiences of any other aspect of self.
As I have stated to you yesterday, these are all aspects of YOU. They are ALL YOU. Not one of them are NOT you. Just as with our comparison of emotions, you hold many different expressions of emotions, but they are all you. You do not separate your expression of emotion from yourself.
In like manner, you may also express the example to yourselves that if you are allowing yourself to be experiencing what you term to be a negative emotion of anger or sadness, and you are allowing yourself to continue within its memory within all of your newly created experiences, it shall be influencing and coloring of your experiences.
In like manner, you may be choosing quite pleasant experiences and holding the memory of these, and exchanging with another aspect and carrying the influence of that aspect through the expressions of other aspects. This would be your opposite, in your terms, type of expression, of [an] individual that you view to be always optimistic regardless of the situation, the individual that within trauma may find the silver lining in the cloud, for they have offered themselves the exertion of energy to be holding the memory of another aspect which has been experiencing of those types of quality of experiences and carrying the influence throughout all of their other exchanges and experiences.
Now; this, for the most part, is also a similar action within this energy exchange. Aspects of this essence are chosen to be lending themselves in availability to this energy exchange, but as I have stated to you previously, this is also dependent upon the time framework in your dimension and reality in which you access this essence, and dependent upon the directed attention of this essence within your time framework, you may be happening upon an aspect of this essence which holds a very different quality tone, which shall be quite obvious to you, for the expression shall be quite different and the energy projected shall appear quite different also. Is this helpful to your explanation?
VICKI: Yeah, just curious about the ‘happening upon.’ (Elias grins)
ELIAS: As I have expressed to you, essence is continuously in motion. Think to yourself of your roulette wheel. Although within this area of consciousness that I occupy there is no time framework, within your dimension and your physical reality you DO incorporate a time framework.
Now; turn your attention slightly from the expression of what you think of as time, and alter this into a position. Create in your thought process and your visualization the idea of time being a position, and not a movement of moments.
Now; in this expression, we stop time. In stopping the time and placing it into an idea of a position, I occupy an area of consciousness that does not incorporate a time framework.
Place myself here (indicating a spot directly in front of him on the floor.) All of the aspects of this essence are accessible to you through here. They do not all occupy here, but they are all accessible to you within this area. You are here (indicating another spot on the floor.) Now; dependent upon your time framework, you position yourselves, in your stream of energy to access this essence, in different positions (indicating different spots on the floor.) This is your time movement, and as your time moves, it moves into different positions or angles of accessing THIS area of consciousness (indicating the original spot.)
Just as you may stand before a circle upon your ground, and viewing yourself as the element of time, as your time framework moves, you move to different positions around the circle. Each movement that you create around the circle shall access a different angle of the circle. In this, you access within your time framework different aspects of this essence, and within certain time frameworks you may be, within that moment – as your roulette wheel – you may be the ball that has stopped before an aspect that does not hold similar quality tone to those which you are familiar to.
It is not necessarily chance – although I am aware that it appears in this manner – for the motion of essence is continuously moving and exchanging. Therefore, the positions are continuously moving, and the essence is aware of the aspects that are familiar to you. This also is not accidental, that you may access another aspect which is unfamiliar to you. It is a choice of essence, in like manner to our analogy of your stick and your ball. The essence holds the choice to move that aspect and also move the familiar aspect into position, that you may access, and at times it may choose not to manipulate its energy in this fashion, and allow that particular aspect to express.
This also is purposefully chosen to offer you differences and variety in small quantities, offering you the experience that shall not be fearful to you, but shall offer you the information that there are many more expressions and aspects of essence than you are familiar with. This is offered in small increments, that it may not be invoking fearfulness within you, or confusion, for you shall in small increments be accepting of these differences. But this also purposefully lends the experience to you that will offer helpfulness in your understanding of yourselves, that you also are not singularly what you think you are or what you appear to be, and as you view that another essence holds many different qualities and expressions but is the same essence, you also begin to assimilate into your objective awareness that you also hold these same qualities.
I have expressed to you that you, regardless that you focus your attention within a physical dimension, are no different from this essence. The only difference that is held is that I hold the remembrance and you do not, but your qualities are the same.
VICKI: So just briefly, just to see if I understand, these other focus aspects you’ve been referring to ... these are other focus aspects, correct? These exchanges that we....
ELIAS: Not necessarily! Let me be clear within our terminology, for if you are moving in the direction of expressing the terminology of focus, you shall be confusing yourself and other individuals. The FOCUSED ATTENTION within ONE focus.
VICKI: I don’t think I phrased that question right. My question is, these other aspects you’re referring to, they are aspects of, say, the focus of me.
VICKI: And would this be similar to what you’ve been referring to as probable selves, alternate selves? Are these all these types of aspects?
ELIAS: Let me clarify in this area also. Probable selves are a different expression from aspects. (Vic starts laughing)
Now; I may express to you that all of the expressions of you are aspects of essence, but we are directing our attention specifically to ONE FOCUS, not incorporating any other focuses or the whole of essence, merely one expressed physical focus: YOU. (6) In this, you individually hold countless aspects of you, which are the you’s of you within this one focus. In this, probable selves are a different expression. They are a creation. They are an intentional expressed action of creation that you project from yourself.
You, with all of the aspects of you ... (Elias stops and grins.) Let me place this in figurative terms in your linear time framework, and this may be slightly easier for you to understand. Let us limit our thought process to beginnings and endings.
You begin a physical focus as you are born into it, in your thinking. As you begin as physical focus, as you enter into the manifestation of a physical focus, there is the existence of countless you’s which make up you, or what you identify as the singular you. There is a continuous exchange of all of these you’s throughout your focus. These are already in existence. They are an automatic manifestation of the whole of essence filtered into a focus of essence within physical dimensions.
As you move through your physical focus, you create probabilities. In this, you create choices, and as you create choices, at certain times you also, in the action of creating certain choices, are creating probable selves. These were not, in your terms figuratively speaking, in existence before. Just as your probabilities do not lie before you – they are created and chosen within the moment of the action – the probable selves also are not created before. They are a creation which springs from the action of choosing probabilities. Therefore, this is a very different action and expression. As you choose certain events within your focus, it moves you in different directions, and each direction that you choose creates an offshoot of a probable self, which also creates an element of a probable reality.
You do this individually AND collectively. You do this individually and in conjunction with other individuals, for you are not only creating the probable self, but you are creating the probable reality where the probable self shall reside. This you do not always create singularly, individually. You create this in conjunction with other individuals also, and in this it is a different expression from your individual focus, for these aspects of self are all the individual aspects of the individual focus. They are not interconnected, in a manner of speaking – merely physically speaking – with other individuals. Just as you view your physical self, your physical form, as not translucent and moving in and out of another individual’s body. In this same manner, the aspects of self that we are speaking of are all YOUR expressions. They are all of the you’s of you, which are not a creation of you. They are all OF you.
Just as within physical focus, you may physically create a box of wood. It is an expression extending outward from you. It is not you, but you have created it. In like manner, probable selves are an expression of your creation. In this, they also differ, in like manner to the box created of wood. Once they are created, they are no longer you. They hold their own choices, and from that point of creation are independent of you – are creating of their own probabilities, of their own direction, of their own creations, and hold their own free will and choice. You may be influencing, as you are influencing of all consciousness and it of you, but you are not choosing their reality. They are creating their reality, in like manner to you creating your reality.” [session 333, October 19, 1998]
NICKY: “Now, my next question ... and I hope just to get right through these because they’re really just things that I’ve not connected with but taken notice of. I don’t remember anything of substance before I was five years old. Why is that?
ELIAS: This is an expression of different aspects of self that are expressed through slightly different tone, which creates what you term to be an objective disassociation with memory. The memory is not lost. It is merely disassociated from objectively. As different aspects of self move into primary position at different time frameworks, if there is an expression of one holding a difference in tone from another, which is expressing different qualities that are latent in another aspect, there may be an expression of disassociation of objective memory between the different aspects.
ELIAS: I have offered information extensively in this subject matter, of which you may be inquiring of Michael [Mary], if you are so choosing, to be engaging that information.
NICKY: Which information?
ELIAS: Of aspects of self and this type of action.
NICKY: Oh, okay. So could I go forth and say then that when there’s periods of time in one’s life, say like when you want to take a look backwards and you’re looking at something, or someone says something and ‘don’t you remember this?’ and it’s really not in your objective mind to remember something, could you more or less take it for granted that it just might be a different tone that was working at that time, a different aspect?
ELIAS: Many, many times this is the situation which is occurring, and as I have stated, the memory is not lost to you and it may be accessed, but it may be requiring of slightly more effort to be accessing that information. It is not considered by you, within the primary aspect presently, as important to your information within your present creations. Therefore, it is unnecessary to be holding to the objective memory of these actions.
Now; let me express to you that this technology that you have created within your inventions of your computers presently mirrors many of these types of natural creations and functions that you hold within yourself. If your computer, so to speak, holds too much memory, it shall block its efficiency, shall it not? And in this, if you are deleting certain elements within its memory, you shall free, so to speak, more of its movement. You create your reality very similarly.” [session 392, May 07, 1999]
KATIE: “Okay, back to this business with [my friend] Tom. He has told me that there is what he calls a ‘light-body’ that is with me all of the time, and that it is an extension of himself that acts independently of him on occasion, and I feel this light-body around me a lot. He’s also told me that there’s a light-body of mine that is around him all of the time, and he is able to see it, feel it, hear it, I mean everything, objectively. I’m curious about what this light-body thing is.
ELIAS: This is a translation in the designation of terms, in a manner of speaking. It is a creation of term to be offering an explanation or an identification of an aspect of self.
As I have stated many times, there are countless you’s of you.
Now; in this, as a whole, so to speak, there is a tremendous interconnectedness, and therefore none of the elements, none of the you’s, in a manner of speaking, move not in conjunction with any of the other you’s of you. These are all of the aspects of you within one focus. This is not the entirety of essence. This is merely the manifestation of one focus and all of the aspects that are associated with that one focus. In this, you may be manipulating energy within your focus to be directing of very many aspects of you in very many different directions.
Now; the action of this is quite similar to the action that you accept as occurring within nonphysical areas of consciousness.
You look to myself as an essence within nonphysical areas of consciousness and you accept the concept that I may be interactive and present in many, many, many different areas and situations simultaneously. This is not difficult for you to conceptualize. You do not entirely assess this concept as a reality or hold an entire understanding of this, but you accept this concept and you do not question its reality.
In like manner, you within physical focus are continuously creating the same type of action, but you do not think in these terms. You think of yourself as being a singular entity. Therefore, you also think to yourselves – and believe – that if you are projecting through consciousness, you are projecting yourself – that you identify as you, this singular entity – away from the physical vessel of your body into other areas, but you do not view yourself as projecting into many, many, many areas simultaneously and interacting in all of these areas and situations simultaneously, for you are directing your attention singularly. But in actuality, your reality moves quite similarly within physical focus as it moves within nonphysical focus. In this, you are merely focusing your attention singularly. Therefore, you view yourself as one singular entity and all of your projections as one singular entity.
Now; in this, it is quite common that individuals may be projecting energy in the manner of an aspect of themself, of their focus, to be interactive with another individual and not hold their directed attention within that aspect, for as I have spoken previously, you direct your attention in singular manner. Therefore, you create what we term to be a primary aspect. This is the aspect that you recognize as you, which you recognize as creating of your emotional qualities, your thought processes, your movements objectively, subjectively, and within all of your reality. This is your primary aspect. This is not to say that all of your other aspects are not equally involved and active within your focus. They merely do not hold your primary attention, your focus of attention.
Therefore, within your focus, you may be projecting many different aspects of yourself in many different directions, and you may, dependent upon the amount of attention you turn to any one of those aspects, hold an awareness of their interactions, of their movements, of their creations, and you may express to yourself and to other individuals that they seem to be creating independently of you at certain times. In actuality, in one respect you may express that they are creating independently, for each aspect holds the ability to be creating of its individual choices, but in another respect it is not independent, for it is intimately interconnected and IT IS YOU.
In this, I have expressed previously the analogy, in comparison to the idea, of different aspects of one focus to be different aspects of YOU, which are you and may not be separated from you, but hold different qualities. I have expressed at times that you may view these different aspects of you in like manner to different emotions that you express. All of these different emotions that you identify are all you. They are all expressions of you and may not be separated from you, but they are all different expressions of you and are not necessarily primarily expressed simultaneously objectively. You do not express anger and joyfulness simultaneously objectively. You choose one or another. Therefore you create a primary expression in like manner to the primary aspect, which is your primary attention and direction of your focus.
You may also liken these different aspects of self in comparison to all of the molecules and all of the cells that make up your physical form, your physical body. All of your physical cells are an element of you. They all move in cooperation with each other to be the expression which creates the projection of your physical form. One may not be removed from your physical form and be projected as you singularly, but one may be removed from you and it shall hold all of the encoding of you. It may not be identified as another individual or belonging to another individual, for it holds your signature. In like manner, all of the aspects of you hold your energy signature. They are all you.
Therefore, in this, the terminology of ‘light-body’ is merely your physical identification of an aspect of self, and I express to you that he is correct in his identification of his recognition of the projection of one aspect of self that may hold physical presence with you each.
KATIE: Okay. Some of the interactions have been of a more intimate nature. I’ve asked Tom about this a number of times too. Sometimes he tells me it’s simply the way the energy translates within me. Other times he makes it clear that yes, he’s there, objectively aware, and that is his intention, and then other times he’s told me that it’s not him at all, but a projection of my own energy made to feel like him. Are all of these true at different times? (Pause)
KATIE: Okay. How can I tell when it’s my own projection?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, you may identify your manifestations of certain expressions by – once again – their energy signature. You may identify this energy signature through different methods, so to speak ... as you are so very fond of methods!
In this, within the moment that you are experiencing certain expressions of energy, you may assess to yourself, in exploration, what YOU are engaging within your focus within that particular time framework. At times, you may be creating of an energy expression yourself and you may be identifying it in other terms, as this may be comforting to you and this may offer you a quietness and a feeling of acceptance, which you within your focus recognize in that moment that you may be needing of, in a manner of speaking ... for in actuality, there is no thing that you are needing of, but within your perception in physical terms, you DO perceive that you hold needs at times.
In this, as you project energy and identify it in other terms, as not the expression of self, you may recognize that it is or is not your creation of your own expression by examining the elements of your focus within that immediate time framework, for you shall project to you the fulfillment of your needs immediately. You shall respond to you in whatever manner is efficient to yourself in accomplishing of fulfilling the direction that you are attending to in an immediate manner.
Therefore, at times, you may be experiencing a connection of energy in any certain type of expression, and it may appear to you to be expressed within a time framework that is unexpected, so to speak. It seems in your objective awareness to be completely unrelated to your creations objectively, and it may appear to you objectively to not be consistent with your creations within the moment.
Now, be remembering that in this investigation of this type, you need be also examining quite intricately your creations within your focus, for some of your creations are underlying and may not appear quite as obvious objectively as other creations. But in these situations that I have just expressed, it shall be easy for you to identify that the energy expression may be a projection from another individual.
Whereas within your expressions of energy to yourself, initially, objectively, it may appear in the same manner, but as you begin to assess the creation and evaluate the creations within your objective expressions within that time framework in relation to many different directions, you may offer yourself the identification that the expression may be in that moment an expression offered to you by self to be reinforcing or validating or comforting to you, and it shall choose the most efficient manner to be comforting to you, and in this, if you are experiencing the feeling of affinity with respect to another individual, you may choose this type of expression to offer to yourself, recognizing your own willingness to accept those types of expressions from another individual more readily than you may accept the nurturing from self.
KATIE: Okay. That makes it a lot clearer. Let me ask you this. Has the majority of the time been my own projection? (Pause)
ELIAS: More of the expressions are expressions from self than actual projections from this other individual, and this is also quite common and another indication that you may look to.
Other individuals do not necessarily project expressions of self to another individual objectively very often. This is a less frequent action which occurs, even within quite interconnected individuals. They are not projecting objective expressions to each other continuously or in what you may term to be often expressions.
KATIE: Okay. But there was this type of exchange and projection going on prior to us meeting objectively, wasn’t there?
ELIAS: Correct. Now in this also, as you DO hold these expressions of energy projections of aspects of self in relation to each other, which holds presence with each other, this may also be translated into these types of experiences, for the aspect which is projected to you may lend an element of its energy signature to be reinforcing of your expression of energy to yourself, and in this, you may at times hold a slight confusion in identifying the expression of self and the expression projected by this individual. There may appear to be an element that feels like this individual, in your terms. This is continued to be an expression of self. It is merely being lent a reinforcement by that aspect which connects itself with you within your physical proximity.” [session 428, July 20, 1999]
JEREMY: “When I created my world of [comic book] stories and characters, was I doing so based on a connection with any of my other focuses or subjective experiences along other lines, and if so, can you cite a few examples? (Pause)
ELIAS: You do incorporate into your creativity elements of connections with other focuses within this dimension and within other-dimensional focuses, although these are all translations into your understanding and your energy and your creative expression within this particular focus.
Now; in this, you have drawn upon energy from several other focuses, one other-dimensional focus in particular which lends energy to you within your creativity, which in your translation in physical objective terms may appear to you as a watery creature, holding no form in actuality – no consistent creation of form – but which may appear to be a watery type of being, which its energy lends to you, in your translation, the ability of changeability within your creative expression.
You also draw from several focuses within this dimension which translate slightly differently into your creative expression, but one focus holds the position of a warrior, and in this lends an element of what you objectively translate into your creativity as strength.
Another focus which lends energy to you in translation into your creativity is a female peasant, which offers to you what you translate to be an earthy interconnectedness, an....
JEREMY: A female what?
This is an identification of the interconnectedness of individuals and all of your planet, allowing you the ability to be manipulating of your environment, so to speak, which also translates into your creativity.
JEREMY: Okay. What happens to things we create, like with characters? Are they merely thought-forms, being extensions of ourselves? Or do they ... CAN they move on and become more?
ELIAS: This is dependent upon your choices and how you are manipulating energy.
Now; in this, let us view what you in physical focus term to be artistic expressions, in the area of musical composition and of painting expressions. These are two obvious examples within your physical creations that you may view certain qualities of the expressions.
Now; in this, some expressions, within either musical compositions or expressions of illustrations or paintings, may appear to be merely an expression of the individual and hold the energy signature of that individual, but they appear or seem to not extend any farther, so to speak; this is figuratively speaking.
In other terms, you may encounter other types of musical compositions or illustrated or painted compositions, and they appear quite differently. They appear not merely to hold the energy signature of the individual that has created them, but they also seem to hold an energy of their own, as if they have been created into an entity of their own.
Now; the reason that you connect with this recognition of these types of expressions is that the composition does hold the energy signature of the individual that has created it, but what it also may hold is an aspect of that individual focus which has been allowed to be projected outwardly and has been allowed to continue independently of the focus.
This is a similar action to fragmentation, but in very physical, figurative terms, a much, much smaller scale.
This would be likened to any individual, any focus, any essence projecting an aspect of itself into any other element within its physical creation – a creature, a plant, a rock. It matters not. You hold the ability within essence to be projecting an aspect of essence or of a particular focus into any of these elements to be experiencing the creations of that element of your reality, such as a creature or any vegetation, an ocean, a mountain, a rock. It matters not.
In similar manner, you may project an aspect of yourself into one of your creations or all of your creations or several of your creations, and in this, not merely you shall recognize that this creation appears to take on, so to speak, a life of its own, in your terms, but other individuals shall recognize this quality also, for you have allowed yourself to project an aspect of yourself into your physical creation, therefore breathing into it its own manifestation, allowing it to be continuing within its own element, so to speak, within its own right, in a manner of speaking. Are you understanding?
ELIAS: Therefore, this be your choice of how you shall be creating within your creativity and what you shall project within it. Appear it not strange to you that certain individuals may be deemed as great masters and they shall be revered for their creations and their creations shall be enduring throughout your linear physical time, and other individuals may be creating and their expressions of creativity do not hold this quality? This is the reason.” [
TED: “Yesterday, Luanne and I were in another city. We spent the night, and when she came out of the shower, she did not recall where she was or why we were there or what we were going to do while we were there. We worked through that yesterday and returned to our home area, to Grady’s home, and talked to C9 (7), who identified that Inez had been exchanging places with another aspect of herself, and that aspect had not been communicating with her normal conscious self, and she was kind of at a loss as to where she was. Is this correct information that C9 has given us?
ELIAS: Now; this provides you with an example of the element of distortion, for I shall express to you, yes, in one respect the information is correct, but it also may be confusing to you, for it implies that one aspect of self holds no knowledge of what another aspect of self is creating, and this is not the case.
In this, what I shall express to you is, this is an action of blinking in and out, which I have expressed previously, you create this action continuously throughout your focus as you are physically manifest. You are constantly blinking in and out, but your objective awareness appears uninterrupted.
Now; at times you may be blinking in and out, and you may exchange primary positions with another aspect of self. As I have stated previously, you hold countless you’s of you. You are not one singular individual as you think of yourselves as being.
In this, you do hold one primary aspect of self, which is the aspect of self that is primarily functioning objectively. This is the aspect of self that you identify as you. At times you may choose to be exchanging positions with another aspect of self, and another aspect of self shall move into the primary position. Depending upon the tonal quality, the direction of attention, and the interest, so to speak – and the qualities expressed by that aspect – it may be different enough from the aspect that has been the primary aspect that it shall appear to create a temporary interruption of objective memory.
Now; this memory is not lost. It is held quite objectively by the other aspect in the same manner that the primary aspect holds its memory. But as it moves out of that position once again, and the previous primary aspect moves back into the primary position – which does occur frequently within many individuals – the primary aspect that has returned to its position is not objectively holding the memory of the other aspect.
Now; I am quite understanding that these are confusing areas!
In this, the memory may be easily accessed through other methods, so to speak, but they are not necessarily readily available within the objective memory of the primary aspect that is in position now.
This be the reason that individuals experience what they term to be missing moments, missing time, or they hold what you term to be gaps within their memory, certain time frameworks that they hold what they perceive to be no memory of objectively. This may occur for quite noticeable time frameworks or it may be quite momentary, but it does occur quite regularly throughout physical focus.
As individuals within physical focus choose to be moving into more relaxed areas, widening their awareness or moving into actions of transition while they are continuing to be engaging physical focus, this type of action may be chosen much more frequently, for many times individuals may not be engaging this type of action within certain time frameworks of their focus, for their fearfulness may be overriding of that type of action. Their element of comfortableness within self, their element of trust of self, and their element of safety within self may not be enough, so to speak, in which they shall allow themselves this type of action.
You may recognize that many, many times this type of action may occur frequently within those time frameworks or those years that you view to be held within childhood. It also occurs much more frequently in individuals as they move into what you express as older years.
This type of action is created infrequently within the physical time framework of the middle years of an individual’s focus, for at times it may be more threatening to their identity and threatening to their very tight grip upon the aspect of control, but within children or within individuals experiencing more advanced years within their focus, this is not of such great concern. Therefore, they allow more of a relaxation of their focus, and this type of blinking in and out for more extended time frameworks becomes much more common. Are you understanding?
TED: Yes, I understand, Elias. Thank you very much. I appreciate the information.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.” [session 447, August 17, 1999]
LETTY: “I have three dreams I want to ask you about, and more than validation, I need to make sure that I’m interpreting them right – my messages, my imagery. One of them, I believe, was an out-of-body experience in my dream state. It was black and white, and I could see a thin young man with a horse or a mule, and this creature seemed to be dying, and the man was honoring this creature. It was kind of interesting because it moved to where I believe there was – I don’t know where I got this – a prostitute being interviewed on television about this man, and when I told Cindel [Stella] the story, she picked up the word ‘Daluth.’ (Pause)
ELIAS: And you are wishing for interpretation or validation?
LETTY: Yes, ’cause I don’t really feel a connection that it was me, mainly because I felt I was seeing it from afar. (Pause)
ELIAS: I express to you, what you have offered yourself in this experience is the viewing of another aspect of another focus, but not your focus.
LETTY: Oh, okay.
ELIAS: What you have offered yourself the viewing of is that of an aspect of another focus of your nephew.
LETTY: Oh, the one I just asked about?
ELIAS: No. (Pause)
LETTY: Oh, how interesting.
ELIAS: Another nephew.
ELIAS: In this, you are not viewing an interaction of the primary aspect of the focus. You are viewing another aspect of that focus within a particular moment, what you may term to be a ‘cross point,’ so to speak.
You all create certain probabilities and certain events within your focuses that at times are creating of certain cross points, and in these, you do not necessarily create a probable self within a probable reality, but within certain moments, you create an action in which more than one aspect of self may occupy the primary position simultaneously. Therefore, there are several actions which are occurring within one moment.
Now; let me express to you the reason why you have created this imagery, for you have created an abstract and complex type of imagery to be offering you a very specific message.
In this, you have been recently moving into a position of viewing different movements within your focus – interactions with other individuals and allowing yourself to be evaluating these interactions and your participations in them.
In this, you have also offered yourself many attempts to be accepting of other individuals’ perceptions within the moment, regardless that they may agree or disagree with your perception.
I hold an awareness that you have assimilated and assessed several discussions that you and I have engaged in this area. In this, you have been allowing yourself to be noticing and to be incorporating certain elements of this type of action within your focus, but there is also an element of difficulty that continues in this area. Are you following thus far?
LETTY: Yes, I am.
ELIAS: Very well.
Therefore, this idea, in a manner of speaking – that individuals hold different perceptions and that these perceptions create their reality and that it is real and that it may be very different as expressed by many different individuals – becomes a very abstract concept and is difficult for each of you to grasp within your understanding in physical terms.
Conceptually, you hold an understanding, but within your objective reality and the practice of your objective reality, in your creating and in your interaction with other individuals, it becomes hazy, so to speak, and it does not appear quite as clearly to you as it may within your thought process as you are viewing the idea conceptually.
What I am expressing to you is that you may find much greater ease in THINKING about this subject matter than in the actual implementation of this subject matter.
Therefore, you have offered yourself the opportunity to view an action that is created within physical focus quite commonly.
This is ONE explanation, other than the incorporation of differences within belief systems. This is one explanation that you may offer to yourself objectively as to HOW – not necessarily why, but how – another individual creates a different perception in certain situations.
Now; you engage situations with other individuals, and you all appear objectively to be participating in the same action together, and you appear objectively to be viewing and perceiving the same scenario. But as you exchange with each other, you find that your perceptions of the same scenario may be very different, and this confuses you.
In this, I express to you, each of you, at many different points, create[s] an action within your focus in which, as I have stated, more than one aspect of self moves into the primary aspect position simultaneously, and as this occurs, you allow your attention to drift. As you allow your attention to drift, what you are creating is quite similar to the spin of the roulette wheel. You allow the ball to roll, knowing that all of the aspects that are participating objectively in the primary position are all experiencing the same scenario, but they are experiencing it from different angles.
Therefore, you allow the ball to roll around the wheel and you allow it to naturally fall into one slot, and it matters not which slot you allow it to roll into. The scenario or the circumstance is experienced by all of the aspects, and you hold an awareness of this.
Therefore, all of the aspects of you are participating in the same situation in conjunction with another individual and shall hold the ability to participate in interaction concerning that event with another individual. You shall all hold memory of the occurrence, but each aspect is viewing from a different angle, so each aspect shall have a slightly different perception and memory of the action that has occurred.
Now; this be the reason that you offer yourself the imagery of not viewing the focus in the terms of the primary aspect of the focus but another aspect of the focus, that you may view this type of action of more than one aspect occupying the primary position within the same time framework.
You also choose not to be imaging this within yourself or one of your focuses but within another individual’s focus for the reason that within yourself and within your belief systems, you view that you hold more of an ease viewing experiences within other individuals, in evaluating those experiences and offering yourself information. You view within yourself that it may be easier and clearer to you to be viewing another individual’s experience, and that your individual experience may appear at times to be more clouded and difficult to access. Therefore, you choose to be imaging with another individual’s focus.
Now; I shall also express to you that this is not a common action that individuals choose within physical focus. For the most part, general speaking, you magnate to your own focuses of essence.
You do not necessarily move in the direction of accessing other individuals’ focuses, generally speaking, although at times you may choose to move in this direction, for you hold a knowing of self and which directions your belief systems move in and what shall be the most beneficial to you within the moment.
In this, as you offer yourself this information, you also may allow yourself to objectively view in the moment that you engage other individuals and you experience within yourself great confusion and shaking of head and expressing to yourself within yourself, ‘How has this individual created this perception from this experience? I hold no understanding of how this individual may be creating this type of perception and viewing what they are viewing. They must be occupying a parallel universe, for they certainly are not occupying this universe! For we have viewed this situation and this creation in this manner, and this individual has viewed the same scenario in an entirely different manner, one in which I do not hold understanding at all!’
LETTY: So true!
ELIAS: This many times is an expression of this type of action of several different aspects viewing the same scenario simultaneously from different angles, and the individual choosing one of those angles to be the primary perception, and it may be quite different. This is not to say it is not reality, for it is! They have merely viewed a different angle than you have viewed, but it is quite real.
I have been expressing this recently to many individuals also, for this also is an element, as I have expressed previously, of this particular wave in consciousness [of sexuality], which is occurring now, which tremendously addresses to perception and how you perceive.
This be the reason that I have offered information in the direction of orientation, for this is an ingredient of your perception, and this subject matter of perception is a very large element in this belief system – all of the different elements that influence your perception – and also the subject matter of absolutes, for you view many different elements within your physical dimension to be absolutes in your perception, and they are not, for each individual’s perception is different and unique and highly individualized, and I may not express this to you often enough!
This is an area that creates tremendous conflict and confusion with many individuals, for you do not allow for the differences in perceptions. You hold an expectation of absolutes and you hold the expectation that if you are perceiving ANY THING in a particular manner, that all other individuals shall perceive it the same, and this is not the case.
Therefore, this is what you have offered to yourself in this particular imagery.
LETTY: Well, glancing at my next question about the dream, it’s the same thing, ’cause it had to do with glasses and seeing and wearing glasses on top of glasses and putting on other glasses. I had this dream of these huge thick glasses that I kept showing off to people.
ELIAS: And you are correct.
LETTY: And I wanted them to see how I saw, and that’s exactly the same thing. Well, that response answered my next two dreams, Elias!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: They were all very close in time too, and I think because I didn’t quite pick up on the one, I had trouble with the other ones.
ELIAS: I shall express to you that this also is quite common, that you shall image to yourself the same subject matter in many different manners until you are objectively understanding.” [session 451, August 21, 1999]
PAUL: “Elias, I have a question about what you stated as an ‘energy fleck’ in the relationship of Rose as an energy personality essence with birds, which are not an energy personality essence.
PAUL: There’s a relationship between Rose and birds that you call an energy fleck. Is that unique to Rose, or do all of our essences hold similar energy fleck relationships with all of consciousness in this dimension?
ELIAS: It is dependent upon the choices of the individual essences.
All essences hold this quality and ability to be projecting these energy flecks, in a manner of speaking, to any element of consciousness. All essences may not choose to be creating that type of action, in like manner to, all essences do not choose to be participating and engaging in certain or all physical dimensions within consciousness. Some essences choose to be creating an exploration within physical dimensions, and some do not. One expression is not better than another expression. They are merely different choices. They are different directions of attention.
Therefore, manifestation into physical dimensions is not lower or worse than manifestations within nonphysical areas of consciousness, and as we have stated many times, you do not occupy a higher plane merely that you choose as essence not to be participating within physical dimensions. They are merely different experiences.
Now; in this, I express this terminology, that you may not become confused in associating with the terminology of aspects, for we have spoken of aspects of essence frequently and much, and in this, you have created an association with that terminology, and you may become confused in the word[s] of ‘a projection of aspects of essence into a creature,’ as I have also stated to you that you do NOT manifest as essence into the form of a creature.
This may be confusing if we are incorporating the terminology of aspects, and in this, it is not an energy concentration of an aspect. An aspect of an essence or of a focus of essence holds a greater energy concentration than would a fleck of energy which is projected by essence into the movement of consciousness in the manifestation of a creature or any element within your physical dimension.
PAUL: So it’s another type of expression of essence, but you differentiate by intensity. It’s a projection versus an actual aspect or a focus of attention?
ELIAS: There are other distinctions. It is not merely intensity. It is not merely an intensity in volume of energy, although these are qualities of the energy which is projected. But also, an aspect of essence shall express personality and the energy signature of the essence or of the focuses of attention of essence.
These flecks of energy may be expressed similarly, within your physical terms, in relation to a small word [i.e. fleck] that you create in your language. Each word that you create within your language is verbalized, so to speak, and that is a physical projection of energy. It is an actual configuration of energy, but it is not necessarily an entire expression of you. It is a projection of an element of energy of you, but it is also expressed, figuratively speaking, outwardly from you, and is allowed to be projected and to merely fly free, so to speak.” [session 502, November 11, 1999]
PAUL T: “I have a new grandson, and his name is Luke. …My mother disengaged physical focus some 15 years ago, and when I made contact with her relatively recently, six months ago or so, I had the strong impression that she was in transition. Recently, within the last week, I feel that she has exited transition. Are those impressions correct?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
PAUL T: Because I feel that she was having some fun. (Paul and Elias chuckle) Because my grandson was born on her birthday, and I had the impression that [he] is a fragmentation of my mother’s essence. (Pause)
ELIAS: Not fragmentation, but there is an aspect of consciousness which is coupled in this particular focus.
PAUL T: Okay, could you amplify?
ELIAS: At times, essences choose to be projecting an aspect of themselves into a particular focus of attention. This is not what you may term to be a mergence of essences and is not a coupling of essences, and it is not in actuality two essences occupying one focus of attention in physical manifestation; but that certain focuses of an essence may choose to be projecting an aspect of themself into the manifestation of another focus of another essence.
In this, there is an allowance of that focus of attention, which is non-physically focused, to be experiencing and participating within a physical manifestation without holding its attention in that manifestation. It, in a manner of speaking, receives the experience but is not focusing its attention in that physical manifestation. It is merely an aspect of the other focus of attention of the other essence.
This is what you are allowing yourself an impression of in connection with these two essences, that there is an aspect of that essence in this new manifestation, but it is not a fragmentation.
PAUL T: Is this similar to what you spoke to in the public session on Saturday (8), where an essence takes an aspect of itself and, shall we say, looks through the eyes of another focus?
ELIAS: This is a different action. That which we were speaking of previously is a situation in which two or more essences may be actually participating in one focus of attention, one manifestation, in this physical dimension.
In that situation, the essences choose positions. One essence is identified as the directing or primary essence. It is the essence that actually creates the manifestation, the focus of attention. The other essence or essences coupled in that manifestation are what you may term to be recessive. They are observers, and are participating for time frameworks – or throughout the entirety of the focus – merely to be offering themselves the experience of observation in the manifestation that the primary essence chooses to be creating.
In this type of manifestation of what you are speaking of, any focus of any essence may project an aspect of itself into any manifestation within your physical dimension. It may project an aspect of itself into a creature, into an object, into a manifestation of your physical environment. It may project into a manifestation of another individual. This is an aspect of the focus of attention. You hold countless aspects of yourself as a focus of attention.
In this, there is no requirement of attention to be held in that aspect. The focus acquires – in a manner of speaking, for there is no acquisition – but in a manner of speaking, the focus allows itself the assimilation of the experience of the other focus without holding its attention in that focus. The attention of the focus that you identify as the mother moves in its choice of direction. It is not focusing its attention upon physical manifestation, but has projected an aspect of itself into the physical manifestation of this new individual.
Therefore, what you notice at times objectively may be what you associate as a familiar presence. At times, you may be objectively noticing similarities in creations, mannerisms, physical expressions. At times, you may notice similarity in appearance. It is dependent upon the expression of the aspect. It may be a preference of some aspect of your reality. These may be expressed in what you term to be a vague manner, for the most part. But if you are allowing yourself to pay attention, you may be noticing of these types of expressions much more clearly.
The individual, as the small one, does not hold an objective awareness of this presentation; but you, in the recognition of familiarity of energy and expression, may be noticing.
PAUL T: Well, it will just give one more opportunity to BE noticing.
ELIAS: Ah! (Laughing)
PAUL T: Ah yes, that most difficult task! But it does get easier with time and practice. So, thank you for that as well!
ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 767, January 26, 2001]
ANJULI: “After the last session one week ago I had an experience, and this was very interesting. I thought I probably first talk with you about an imagery I have and I am often using which works very well for me, and that is what I call the world tree. I imagine there would be a huge, huge, huge, huge tree. I can go into the inner of this tree, and in the inner it is wooden and with moss and with all kinds of patterns, and there are stairs and rooms but naturally grown from the tree. So I walk upstairs, and there are openings in the tree which lead to all kinds of dimensions or places or whatever I would like to experience. Then I come higher and higher, and then I am in a room and in the room I meet a being which I experience as female, but she showed me that this is not necessarily how she ... I sometimes saw her as a bird or also as male, but in general as female, and I don’t talk with her. It is just a peaceful experience of coming home. So I am using this before I go to sleep when I had a little bit of a challenging day, and it is always a feeling of coming home, of letting go of worries or even of the experience of this dimension.
ELIAS: Yes, and offering yourself the creation of an expression of imagination to allow yourself movement into calm.
ANJULI: Am I using more this imagery for to kind of move home, into myself?
ANJULI: Or this is for sure the thing, that I move home into the self?
ANJULI: Is it at the same time a connection with an essence, or not?
ELIAS: With YOUR essence.
ANJULI: With mine, not an additional, with another one.
ELIAS: No. This is entirely an expression that you have created in association with yourself, with you as essence. In this, your imagery of the tree, which incorporates all of these different expressions or that which you view as rooms and openings, are all symbolic imagery of yourself as essence, as the tree, creating imagery that is suggestive of powerful strength of structure and being, but also offering many, many avenues of discovery and many avenues to be investigating and exploring. Therefore, each encounter that you may create in this imagery may be viewed as another aspect of you as essence.
ANJULI: Then I will use it more often! (Both laugh) Yes, I already had the feeling if I would use it I could discover all kinds of focuses that I have, or anything.
ELIAS: You are quite correct.
ANJULI: ... A few hours later, after the session, I started to go to bed and at first was a mixture of excited and tired, and then I used this world tree imagery. After that, I suddenly understood in what kind of an experience I was, because I just remembered my writings and I discovered what it was or why it was, and I discovered that I can use the tools of this physical dimension, like emotions or whatever, for reaching up to this unfamiliar/familiar. So it was not feeling like well, I kind of want it, or how do I do it, or I forget about my emotions or I undo them or any kind of thing like that, but I used them as a tool.
This was then so amazing, because I started to fall asleep, and then it was an experience as if I visited you. I experienced you as a kind of an energy field, and my dimension was no longer there but I was still experiencing myself as sleeping in my bed but the rest of the house was gone and everything around me was gone, and I knew with full certainty that this was you, and then I focused just on this experience, and it lasted for a little while.
ELIAS: Quite! You are allowing yourself to experiment in manipulating energy, and allowing yourself the recognition of your own abilities concerning energy and how you may be manipulating it, and in this you allow yourself to incorporate certain imagery as a portal in like manner to dream triggers, although you are incorporating imagery that has become familiar to you, not necessarily in dream imagery.
But you may be incorporating any imagery within the dream state or within the waking state to be accomplishing the same focal point that you may engage as a portal to allow yourself movement in creating different types of experiences, validating to yourself your genuine ability to be generating much more within consciousness than you have been familiar with previously. This also familiarizes you with yourself as essence – not as a piece of essence, but as essence.
ANJULI: The experience of as if my physical dimension is no longer there, was this like a going elsewhere or like a shifting of consciousness or of focus to ... no, not like going elsewhere, because I did not have the feeling that I am going elsewhere. It was more like maybe shifting attention?
ELIAS: Yes! It is an action of shifting attention, allowing yourself to move your attention, which offers you a tremendous example in experience of your ability to move your attention and to view what occurs as you do move your attention.
What is created, as I have stated, is dependant upon where you direct your attention. If your attention is directed singularly in one expression or one area, so to speak, you shall generate experiences and you shall create in association with the direction of your attention. If your attention is focused singularly within this physical manifestation, you shall concern yourself with creations in association with merely this manifestation, and you do not interrupt or view any other aspect of yourself but this one manifestation and focus of attention.
But be remembering, I have stated previously, this is precisely a focus of attention. Therefore, you as essence may shift your attention, and dependent upon the concentration of attention and the singularity of it, what you recognize in this particular attention as yourself may, in a manner of speaking, disappear.” [session 929, October 18, 2001]
INGRID: “Since four years I have always a kind of presence which I feel is around me. Sometimes when I think something, then I have the feeling this presence thinks that this is funny and starts laughing about this. It expresses itself that I am laughing then, but I know very clearly that it’s not me who is laughing. I don’t know if you understand, if it makes sense to you.
ELIAS: Yes, I am understanding.
INGRID: My question now is, is this also a communication from myself, or is this a communication from this presence? It confuses me somehow, because I cannot distinguish these things.
ELIAS: The presence in actuality is you, but in a manner of speaking a larger sense of you than what you recognize as yourself in this one focus. Therefore, there is an aspect objectively of unfamiliarity in energy.
For you are familiar with the energy that you express in this focus as yourself, but as essence – which may be identified as MUCH greater than the expression of one attention, which is one manifestation or what you identify as yourself in this focus – the energy of the whole of essence may seem to you to be different than that which is expressed solely in this one focus, but it is you. It is merely the whole of you, which incorporates many more expressions of energy than may be expressed in merely this one focus.
INGRID: So this is part of essence, or is this something foreign? It is part of essence, you said?
INGRID: Is it maybe ... I don’t know, I hope you understand me. Is it another focus of myself in another dimension, or what is it?
INGRID: Is it something different?
ELIAS: In actuality, this is your communication in this focus with the whole of your essence.
INGRID: Because you see, it is sometimes not talking to me. I have it now since four years, and sometimes I feel it is smiling. In the beginning I started to ask it questions, but it does not answer questions. It’s nodding its head or it’s shaking its head and sometimes I felt even with this nodding of head and shaking of head he was lying to me. At least I was feeling it is like that, when I asked him questions. It made me so confused, this whole thing.
ELIAS: I am understanding. For in this, you are presenting to yourself a translation within your thought process. Therefore, you translate this energy as another entity that you are attempting to communicate with.
INGRID: Yes, that is what I do.
ELIAS: Now; in this, it is not another entity. It is the whole of you, and it matters not that you choose to be translating this action in a manner in which you view this communication, so to speak, as being that with another entity, for this is merely the manner in which you allow yourself a type of objective understanding of your interaction.
But in this, as it is an interaction that you are allowing between this focus of attention that you recognize as yourself and the whole of essence and different aspects of essence in different moments...
INGRID: What does this mean ‘different aspects of essence’?
ELIAS: There are many, many, many aspects of essence. You incorporate countless aspects of essence, and therefore you may be within a particular moment turning your attention to a specific other attention of essence or you may be generally moving your attention to the whole of your expression of essence.
Now; in this, as you experience this action that you translate as inquiring or incorporating questions in relation to your essence, it is quite understandable, especially within this time framework in the action of this shift, that you shall respond to yourself in this type of action that you incorporate as merely shaking or nodding of a head, for you hold the answers to your questions within you. Therefore, in not offering you what you identify as a solid response, this is an encouragement to you in this focus to turn your attention to yourself and explore and discover the answers within you in the action of becoming familiar with self and developing an intimacy in relationship with yourself.” [session 977, January 06, 2002]
DANIIL: “... This may sound as a dumb question. I guess I want to know, as an essence, who am I and what is my purpose in this life as an essence and as this particular focus?
ELIAS: I may express to you that this is not an insignificant question, but I may also say to you that you may attempt to offer yourself this information first. The manner in which you may discover what you term to be your purpose, which is your intent in this focus, is to examine the entirety of your focus and allow yourself to view the theme that is expressed throughout the entirety of your focus. Your experiences throughout your focus shall follow a general theme.
Now; within that theme, you choose many different specific directions in association with the general theme or the general direction of your focus. In this, all of your experiences are connected, in a manner of speaking, to this one general theme.
I encourage individuals strongly to be attempting to view and evaluate and discover this theme themselves, for this significantly offers you intimate information concerning yourselves, and also it serves as an exercise in paying attention to yourself. For individuals within your physical dimension are unfamiliar with the action of genuinely intimately knowing themselves, and in this all opportunities to practice this action of familiarizing yourself with you and offering yourself information concerning yourself are valuable and also offer you a tremendous validation in recognizing your actual individual ability to be engaging this action. For, there are many aspects of yourselves that you view to be hidden from you and in actuality they are not. It is merely a situation in which you are unfamiliar with paying attention to yourself. It is quite familiar to pay attention to other individuals, but it is not quite familiar to pay attention to yourself.
Therefore, my initial encouragement is that you allow yourself to incorporate a time framework in which you allow your viewing of the entirety of your focus and an evaluation of that to discover this theme.
DANIIL: Why do I fear so much remembering my life and the events in my life, and why is my memory so fragmented? I sense that fear whenever I try to go through my life and revisit it. Also, it almost seems like every time something changes in my life, I change inner-self life, and I have difficulty even remembering how I felt and who I was.
ELIAS: Very well. I may express to you, in response to this question, there are two factors. One involves a movement that you have engaged in this focus in relation to different aspects of yourself.
Now; this factor I shall offer to you as an element of the theme of your focus. Therefore, what I am expressing to you is that I am offering you clues and some information which also is associated with your first question, in identifying the theme of your focus or the intent of this particular focus.
Now; what I am expressing to you is that the reason that you experience this fragmented objective memory is that within your focus you have generated a consistent action of altering the primary aspect of you. This is a challenging concept for objective understanding, and also is somewhat of an unusual choice of intent in this physical dimension. For the most part, individuals choose one primary aspect of themselves to be expressed throughout most of their focus.
In explanation of this concept of primary aspect, the primary aspect is an aspect of you that you associate as being you, that elusive expression of you that you recognize as yourself, not necessarily your physical expression but the inward expression of you, which also associates with your personality.
Now; there are countless aspects of each individual. I have expressed this previously in terms of the many yous of you. You are not merely one expression. There are many, many, many yous in one focus of attention, and many of them remain latent or underlying the primary aspect.
Now; at times individuals briefly exchange positions of different aspects of themselves and may notice certain different qualities being expressed within different time frameworks, different qualities that perhaps they have previously not expressed, but realize in a time framework that they are expressing new qualities that objectively were unknown to them.
In this, the exchange of position of the primary aspect is generally expressed with another aspect that is what you would term to be closely associated with the recognized primary aspect. Therefore, there is no interruption of objective memory, or in your terms, there is no feeling of difference in personality. The individual continues to recognize themselves as themself. But the individual shall recognize that they are expressing new talents or new interests, new inspirations, and this shall appear to the individual as being different qualities that are now being expressed.
Now; in association with you, you have generated a different type of exchange of primary aspects, which does occur with individuals at times but generally not as consistently as you have generated within your focus. In exchanging positions of primary aspects that are not as closely associated with each other, the individual may experience interruption of objective memory. For if the aspect that moves into the primary position expresses significant alterations of qualities of expressions, this may also generate enough of an alteration of the objective expression that it generates an interruption of the objective memory.
Now; this is not to say that the objective memory may not be regained, so to speak, if that is the choice of the individual, but generally speaking the individual experiences what you term to be memory loss. In actuality, as I have stated, the memory is not lost. It may be regained, so to speak, objectively, but you may incorporate different methods to be allowing yourself that re-establishment of the objective memories, and this is dependent upon the choice of the individual and whether you want to be incorporating the objective memory or not and whether that incorporates importance to you or not.
Now; I may also express to you, I am understanding of your fear associated with memory, for as I have stated, this is somewhat of an unusual action, to be incorporating this type of exchanging of primary aspects of yourself in such degree and in such volume within one focus. But this also is purposeful, for this has allowed you to explore many different expressions of yourself. In this, I may be encouraging of you, my friend, for the reason that you incorporate this fear is that the expression of investigating memory is unfamiliar to you.
DANIIL: Would that be a useful exercise to me?
ELIAS: Yes, for this shall offer you a clearer understanding of your intent in this focus in exploring different aspects of yourself, in exploring the diversity of expressions that are generated in exchanging primary aspects of oneself, and in allowing yourself to accomplish the integration of objective memory in association with this process.
DANIIL: ... In terms of my occupation, I am a programmer and there is some creativity in this work that I do enjoy. But should I be thinking or should I make it my goal to find what occupation suits me best and achieve that? Or do you have a suggestion what type of occupation would be suitable?
ELIAS: First of all I may express to you, there are no shoulds. I shall also suggest to you, in association with our discussion this morning, once again to allow yourself flexibility and freedom in your natural expression of energy, and in this not to attempt to express the rigidness of locking yourself into one expression.
Allow yourself the freedom to enjoy and express your creativity now in what you choose as your career, so to speak, in this now. But also allow yourself the freedom of your natural expression, my friend, in that flexibility, knowing that within another time framework you may choose to be altering your direction of career, so to speak, and engaging a different action, and this is acceptable, for this is a natural movement of you.
Therefore, my suggestion to you is that you relax, allow yourself to appreciate the creativity that you are expressing in the now, not to generate worry or concern of the future, and merely allow yourself to move naturally. If you present yourself with a different expression of creativity that you wish to move into, allow yourself permission to express that.” [session 1130, July 12, 2002]
SHARON: “My next question is have I fragmented?
SHARON: Do I have a new essence name?
ELIAS: NO. I expressed to you no, you did not fragment.
SHARON: Am I in the process of fragmenting?
ELIAS: You are continuously in the process of fragmenting. But as to your question, is your particular focus fragmenting and creating a new essence, no. What you ARE generating is an action of exchanging primary aspects.
SHARON: I don’t know that I completely understand that.
ELIAS: Each individual incorporates, as I have expressed, countless yous of you. One aspect of you is designated as the primary aspect. That is the aspect of you that you are objectively most familiar with, that which you identify as your identity, as being you.
Now; primary aspects are not absolute positions, and they change. In actuality, they change quite frequently. But generally speaking, most individuals, as they alter their primary aspect, generate the designated primary aspect as one that is similar to other aspects. Therefore, you easily exchange positions of primary aspects with no noticeable interruption of your identity or your abilities or the familiar expressions that you generate.
Now; at times individuals – which it is not uncommon – choose to be expressing an alteration of the primary aspect and may choose another aspect of themselves to be expressed in the primary position which expresses different qualities than are generally familiar to the individual.
Now; this may occur in many varying degrees. Individuals may alter the primary aspect and continue to associate with themselves, with noticeable differences in the qualities that they express or perhaps skills or talents that they express, but they continue to feel like themselves. They merely are noticing that they are expressing different talents or creativity that they have not expressed previously and may be somewhat surprised that they incorporate these abilities.
Now; at times individuals may alter the primary aspect in more of an extreme.
Now; in those scenarios, the individual interrupts memory, and therefore they may experience a time framework in which they do not remember objectively certain years or a certain limited time framework. In those scenarios, the individual has chosen to be altering the primary aspect in more of an extreme, and that primary aspect does not incorporate the objective memory of the previous primary aspect. Therefore, there appears to be an interruption in memory.
Now; that is not an uncommon expression either. Many individuals generate that type of exchange of primary aspects in what you view as younger years, within your identification of childhood. As they move into older years or adulthood, they may incorporate lapses of objective memory of certain time frameworks within their identification of childhood.
Now; in some scenarios, individuals generate that type of exchange of primary aspects as an adult and may incorporate a limited time framework in which they appear to be missing time.
Now; you have not generated that type of exchange in this time framework of primary aspects, but you are experimenting with exchanging different primary aspects that express different qualities and somewhat of alterations of some personality expressions also. This is the reason that you are experiencing a feeling that some element of yourself is different and therefore questioning whether you have fragmented. There is some element that is different, but it is associated with your focus, which is much more diverse than you view it to be.” [session 1377, June 23, 2003]
ANNE: “You said for two days that my friend, Karl, is an incarnation of the Bavarian king, Ludwig the second. I had no time to ask, was I at this time near him?
ANNE: And you can tell me?
ELIAS: A family member, and I shall express to you to investigate! (Chuckles)
GOTTLIEB: (Translates into German for her: ‘You shall find out for yourself.’)
ANNE: Oh! (Group laughter and Elias laughs loudly)
ANJULI: Elias, we were also wondering because I think you said to Bobbi that her son had a focus as Ludwig II, and Margot and Howard, we were discussing how that can be. We had various choices. It could be a fragmentation action, and Howard, what did you say?
HOWARD: A temporary vacation of the directing essence could change the energy of the focus consciousness itself.
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, that is actually somewhat accurate. (Group applause) Not ‘vacation,’ for it is the choice of the focus of which essence it shall align with in any time framework as the directing essence.
The focus may choose. If there are observing essences, the focus may choose to change essences for it is the choice of the focus, which is also significant. For many individuals within this forum that participate with this information continue to devalue somewhat focuses as not being essence, or that essence is the greater expression, or essence is the whole and the focus is the part. They also devalue the choices and the significance of the focuses of attention and the power of each attention, and view the focus of attention as being somewhat subject to the whole of essence, which is quite incorrect.
This is the reason that I express to all of you repeatedly the significance and the importance of you as individuals, and that you are actually directing yourselves and you are engaging all of the choices that occur within your experiences, even to the choice of which essence you shall align with or be.
Therefore, in a manner of speaking, there is little difference between an observing essence and a directing essence, for that is not an absolute either, and it may change.
HOWARD: So is this what happened to me recently? Did my essence tone change? I believe you said that early on in our association.
ELIAS: No, but that also is another action that may occur, which is also the choice of the focus to be expressing more of a certain tone of essence and certain qualities of essence, and that may change. The focus may choose to be expressing a different tone of the same essence and different qualities, which would alter your experiences and would also in some manners alter some of your behaviors and in some manner your identity. You would perceive yourself differently.
MARGOT: Then continuing on in that line, when such a choice is made during, let’s say, a life experience that is very changing, you change the life experiences that you’re having, you’re saying that that would be the same thing, when you make a major change in direction.
ELIAS: It is dependent upon the individual and what is actually occurring. For that may occur also in altering primary aspects of the focus itself, which would not necessarily be an alteration of the tone and the qualities of the essence. It would be an alteration of primary aspects of the individual.
MARGOT: Can I ask a personal type of a question? As an example, when I decided to leave my background behind – my church, my family – and I left, was that a change in the focus tone or the essence tone?
MARGOT: Both – is that what you said, both?
ELIAS: Focus. Yes, and that would also be a mark-point of generating other probable realities, yes.
MARGOT: Thank you.” [session 1574, June 05, 2004]
(1) Paul’s note: Patel is an essence channeled by Ron Churchman. Though he has spoken for Patel, Ron usually autotypes at his computer.
Digests: find out more about Paul/Patel.
(2) Paul’s note: a reference to when Elias “mis-spoke” several months earlier, and made a comment about my “belonging to” Sumafi. I asked him about this (in session 300, The Not So Private Private), and he only said that my “belonging to” hadn’t changed. Here’s the excerpt:
Digests: find out more about mergence.
(3) Paul’s note: according to Elias the essence of Rose plays an important role in this shift in consciousness.
Digests: find out more about the essence of Rose.
(4) Paul’s note: a reference to one of the three basic types of inner senses discussed by Elias – empathic, conceptualization, and differential time. Elias describes the conceptual sense as follows:
Digests: find out more about the inner senses.
(5) Paul’s note: Elias refers to a private session that was not recorded the day before. I asked Mary about this and she replied as follows:
I later asked Mary if she would explain why some folks choose not to have their private sessions recorded.
Also, unrecorded private sessions receive no official session number, and x-files do. Thus, x-files are noted in the transcripts table of contents pages, while unrecorded sessions aren’t. Several x-files were transcribed during the first couple of years of sessions, but the rest exist only in the tape/DVD archive at Ron and Cathy Churchman’s house in Castaic, CA.
(6) Vic’s note: I have removed the word “as” in the following sentence: “Now; I may express to you that all of the expressions of you are aspects of essence, but AS we are directing our attention specifically to ONE FOCUS ...”
(7) Paul’s note: C9 is the name of an essence that comes through in an energy exchange with Joanne’s friend Ted Bair.
Digests: find out more about energy exchanges.
