“The Belief of Obligation”

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Tomas (Fernando).

Elias arrives at 9:56 AM. (Arrival time is 18 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

TOMAS: Hello? (Elias laughs) Ah, Elias!

ELIAS: And how shall we begin?

TOMAS: I would like to know my essence family, alignment and orientation.

ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Fernando. And what is your impression as to your essence family and alignment?

TOMAS: Oh, I don’t know. I have read a lot of the transcriptions, but right now I don’t have any clue about that, really.

ELIAS: (Laughs) Very well. Essence family, Sumari; alignment, Milumet. And do you incorporate an impression as to your orientation?

TOMAS: I think common.

ELIAS: Correct. (Chuckles)

TOMAS: Okay, Elias, I follow with another question. When I was about five or six years, I had a frightful experience with some kind of animal or entity that appeared before me in the backyard of my house. What was that?

ELIAS: An other-dimensional focus of you.

TOMAS: Yeah? Ah, good. (Laughs) Now that we are talking about dimensions, how many focuses do I have in this dimension?

ELIAS: In this dimension, 784.

TOMAS: Let me see, another question that is very important for me... Okay. This is about a dream I had about two, three years ago, but what regret. In this dream I lose all my teeth for no apparent reason. I can pull out my teeth with my own hands. What does that mean?

ELIAS: And shall you offer an impression?

TOMAS: I think that was something that was supposed to happen to me, like losing my car, losing some relation with my family. Am I right?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes, for it is symbolization which is associated with the loss of a valuable element within your focus. In this, the teeth are a symbol of imagery that are regarded in this dream to be a valuable commodity, for they are associated with being life sustaining and therefore the loss of which is a very affecting experience. Therefore, you are correct that it is a symbol for other expressions, other elements within your life that are valuable to you and that would be quite affecting in the loss of those valuable expressions.

TOMAS: Let’s go forward with something similar. In this dream, I had something like a thread or a wire in my mouth, in my teeth, and I can take it out with my hands but it is endless. So I pull and pull and pull on this wire or thread, and it never ends. I would like to know about this.

ELIAS: And your impression?

TOMAS: My impression is that it is probably that I do not speak clearly to my family about certain things that I keep secret.

ELIAS: You are partially correct, for this is associated with communication, but it is also associated with the presentment of yourself and the allowance of your free expression and exposure. The imagery of the string which appears to never end is a symbolization that you have presented to yourself of the continuation of this action of the lack of exposure and the lack of allowance of yourself to be freely expressing yourself, which, in the action of allowing yourself to freely express yourself, that string would be broken.

TOMAS: Okay, here is another situation that happened to me. On January the 7th of this year, before leaving I was trying to stay calm, to practice a (inaudible) exercise that you mentioned in some session. Then something happened that never happened to me before. Some kind of entity came to me and helped me, and also it took me in its arms. I think it was female because it aroused me sexually, but I don’t know that this means. Can you tell me something?

ELIAS: Yes. In your incorporation of expressing this exercise, you allowed yourself to express more of an openness with yourself.

Now; this is significant, for this triggered an experience that you allowed with yourself to glimpse an appreciation of a kind within yourself. This experience was a translation of, in a manner of speaking, an aspect of yourself, and it has been presented in this manner specifically. For in the presentment of that type of experience, it allowed you an openness to yourself in the moment, in which you would allow yourself to appreciate your own expression and view it as attractive, in a manner of speaking. Are you understanding?

TOMAS: Yes, yes. I have another question. Here in my house, many people have seen some kind of guy with a raincoat and a hat. I have never seen him, but I would like to know what is this? Because my wife saw him, my daughter also, and the girlfriend of my son.

ELIAS: It is an apparition.

Now; let me express to you, at times individuals may view physically an apparition of another essence. In these experiences, at times the essence may be attempting to show itself to the individuals specifically, or it may be merely generating this type of energy expression to be connecting with and accessing some type of energy deposit within that particular space arrangement.

Not all manifestations of apparitions are necessarily attempting to generate contact with individuals, so to speak. At times, it may be the essence’s choice to be generating a particular manifestation to assimilate an energy deposit in a particular space arrangement in a specific manner – not choosing to be actually physically manifest and participating in your physical dimension, but choosing to be accessing and assimilating a particular type of energy deposit which may be within your space arrangement, to assimilate a particular experience. This is what these individuals have viewed.

Now; in this, the individuals are expressing an openness to allow themselves to view that apparition.

TOMAS: Elias, I have another question. It is about my granddaughter Ximena. I would like her essence name, alignment and how many focuses that we share together.

ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Miriah, M-I-R-I-A-H (mih RYE uh). Essence family, Sumari; alignment, Tumold; orientation, common. Shared focuses that you incorporate together, 68.

TOMAS: Thank you. About my daughter Priscilla that is outside of my marriage, the same, please?

ELIAS: Essence name, Tobey, T-O-B-E-Y (TOW bee). Essence family, Ilda; alignment, Zuli; orientation, common. Shared focuses together, 22.

TOMAS: How about my wife, Liliana? Ex-wife, because we divorced recently.

ELIAS: Essence name, Martha, M-A-R-T-H-A. Essence family, Borledim; alignment, Gramada; orientation, common. Are you inquiring of shared focuses with this individual?


ELIAS: Very well – 15.

TOMAS: Here I would like to stay and ask another question about her. Our relationship is not very good, and I think that I am feeling confused about this relationship. I think that this is going to end, and I would like to know if you see something in your crystal ball. (Laughs)

ELIAS: (Chuckles) This is not a question of viewing within the crystal ball, my friend. Express to myself, first of all, the nature of your concern and also express to myself what it is that you want.

TOMAS: That is very hard to say, but I will try. Since I married her, I always say that this would never last and that we had to end sometime. One day I made a comment in front of some of her friends and I say that once my children were growing old, I will leave her. She doesn’t forget that, and we have been separated many times. The last time was for almost three, four years. Now we are together again, but I still think that it won’t work, that I need to get out of this house. I don’t feel very good here. That is why I would like to know if what I am doing is right. Do you know what I mean? I don’t know to how to ask this question. Maybe you can help me, tell me something.

ELIAS: Let me express to you first of all, my friend, that it is not a question of what is right or what is not right. It is a matter of listening to yourself and paying attention to your preferences, and therefore allowing yourself to identify what you want.

Now; in this, let us examine what holds you in the position that you are in, and what you deny yourself in your choices and therefore restrict your movement. What motivates you to continue in this position?

TOMAS: I think mainly because I don’t have money at this time, I lost everything that I had, and now I am starting again. I think that by necessity I am here. I need a telephone line, I don’t have a car right now, so practically I am starting anew. Now that we talk about this, I have many, many options, but it also seems like I’m stuck. I want, for example, to work with a guy in Mexico. I have called him many times and I never have been able to talk to him. I also am expecting a guy from England, Jim, and this is the same. So what is happening?

ELIAS: This is associated with what we are discussing, in genuinely paying attention to what you are actually doing, what motivates that, what beliefs are influencing of your choices and what you are generating to restrict yourself and not create the allowance. But this is associated also, as I have stated, with your preferences and recognizing genuinely what you want. In this, as you begin to pay more attention to what you are actually doing and what beliefs are influencing you, you may be offering yourself much more clarity. Let us examine this situation that you generate now and what you have been attempting to generate but have been unsuccessful with.

Now; you attempt to be contacting different individuals in other locations, and you view that movement to be unsuccessful. What are you associating with in your beliefs now that are restricting you from generating this type of movement? First of all, both of these scenarios involve movement to another location. Correct?

TOMAS: Correct, and I would like that, really like that. Sometimes I think that I have nothing to do here in Costa Rica and probably I would do better in Mexico or Europe or somewhere else.

ELIAS: I am understanding. BUT you also generate a hesitation in associating with that type of movement.

Now; what is influencing that hesitation? What are you generating in the location that you are presently that you view shall be a loss?

TOMAS: Well, I owe a lot of money to a guy here in Costa Rica, and before I left Costa Rica I would like to pay him all the money that I owe him, and then not worry in another country. But other than that, I don’t think that... I feel free to go anywhere.

ELIAS: Do you?

TOMAS: I think so, yes.

ELIAS: I may express to you that you incorporate strong beliefs in association with obligation. Not merely obligation to this individual of your friend in regard to financial situations, but also obligation to family.

TOMAS: Yeah, probably, but I’m not sure about that. I have left them many times alone. I have left the house three or four times, and I don’t care sometimes about them.

ELIAS: But you continue to return.

TOMAS: Yeah. (Laughs) But probably because I lost my money...

ELIAS: But this is...

TOMAS: ...and now you would tell me that I lost my money because I want to return, is that right?

ELIAS: Correct. (Tomas laughs)

Now; let me clarify – not necessarily that you want to return, but that you are motivated to return in association with your expressed belief of obligation.

Now; let me express to you clearly, this is the reason that I am expressing all of this questioning to you, that you may begin to more clearly view yourself and your beliefs and therefore generate an objective understanding of what you are doing and thusly allow yourself the freedom to move into manifesting what you want.

For, let me identify with you that individuals may be generating actions that may appear to them to be quite obvious, and that does not necessarily define that they are creating what they want. You may not necessarily want to be creating a particular movement or a particular scenario or environment or expression but you may create it regardless, for you are responding to an expressed belief which incorporates strong influences.

This is what generates the conflict, for you recognize that you are generating actions that are contrary to what you want and that what you are actually doing is not what you want, but you also do not appear to be allowing yourself to successfully create what you want. The reason that you are not generating what you want is that you have not identified the belief that is influencing your choices and your expressions and hindering your freedom.

Let me express to you, my friend, beliefs, expressed beliefs, can be quite powerful, and the influences of these expressed beliefs can be quite affecting. They may be affecting of your choices, of your behavior, of your movement, of what you allow yourself and what you do not allow yourself. They may be even be quite affecting of your thinking.

Now; what is significant is that you allow yourself to pay attention to all three mechanisms that are the most influencing and the most affecting of your perception and of what you actually generate. Those three elements, as you are aware, are your communication aspect, your choices or what you are actually doing, and your thinking.

Now; if any one of those three mechanisms are not in harmony with the other two, you may assure yourself that this is worthy of your examination. You are generating some action to offer yourself information concerning automatic responses to beliefs, and you are hindering yourself and your movement. In this, you are generating the one mechanism or aspect of yourself that is not in balance with the other two, which is the aspect of yourself that is doing – the choosing aspect.

Now; let me express to you, many times the one mechanism that shall be out of balance with the other two is the communication aspect, the emotional communications. Generally speaking, this is the one expression that shall be the most obvious, telling expression that is different from the other two. For in association with beliefs, what you do is influenced by the expressed belief, and what you think generally follows what you do and what you concentrate upon, which is the belief.

Now; in your situation, what becomes tremendously frustrating for you is that you have managed to move your thought mechanism in alignment with your communications, but you continue to generate the choices, the doing, in association with the beliefs.

Now; in this, let me express to you, Fernando, if you are genuinely allowing yourself to pay attention, to examine these expressed beliefs that you incorporate in association with what you are actually doing – not with what you WANT to be doing – but what you are actually doing now, you may allow yourself to view these influences and thusly recognize that you do incorporate choice. You may allow yourself the freedom to be expressing yourself and to be moving into these areas that you want to be creating and allow yourself to not continue to block yourself. For you recognize that beliefs are not absolutes, and it is not a question of fighting with these beliefs but merely recognizing that they are incorporated and that they are not being eliminated, but that you are not subject to them, that you do incorporate choice.

Regardless that the belief continues, regardless that it is present, regardless that it may even be expressed, you incorporate choice. You may express quite strongly the block and the hesitation in allowing yourself a physical relocation, for you are expressing strong influence in association with this one belief of obligation in merely one expression concerning your friend. But as you begin to examine that and recognize that this is merely a belief, and yes, you continue to express this belief but you are not subject to it, you may freely choose to incorporate your movement and address to that belief in your association with in another time framework.

TOMAS: Elias, is there some lack of trust in myself?


TOMAS: A lot, or more or less?

ELIAS: Not an extreme, but there is some expression of a lack of trust within yourself, which is associated with your judgments of yourself concerning your choices and your behaviors. For you view actions that you have incorporated pastly as somewhat being faithful, so to speak, to yourself in attempting to allow yourself the freedom of your expressions and what you want, but also intermingled with these beliefs and this one belief of obligation. Therefore, you express a judgment of yourself concerning your behavior, even though it has been an attempt to allow yourself to generate what you want and to pay attention to you.

TOMAS: Elias, is there another focus that I can reach that can help me? (Pause)

ELIAS: Yes. In this...

TOMAS: Mention a list, too, that I can contact. I have never been able to do that, and I have read in the transcriptions that many people do. What can I do?

ELIAS: Let me express to you that you may access this other focus either through waking visualizations, quieting yourself and paying attention to your impressions, or you may also access this other focus through dream imagery.

Now; I shall offer you information with regard to this other focus. This focus actually is a female individual but experiences similar beliefs and similar challenges as do you. This individual experiences them more strongly and more intensely, which also may be informative to you, for it may be reinforcing of your trust of yourself and your choice to allow yourself to be expressing more of your freedom. This female individual is within the physical location of Mexico.

TOMAS: Where? Mexico?

ELIAS: Yes. Now; within a time framework of what you may identify as very early 1900s, this individual incorporates a relationship with a partner and also children, which is also influencing of her choices.

TOMAS: Are there any others?

ELIAS: I may express to you another focus in Denmark that you may be investigating. This individual is male and expresses quite an allowance of his freedom, which may serve as an inspiration.

TOMAS: And the timeframe?

ELIAS: Time framework, late 1800s, also early 1900s.

TOMAS: Well, Elias, I think that is all that I have, except can you recommend something to better contact these guys in England and Mexico that I really want to work with?

ELIAS: Be mindful of the energy that you are projecting outwardly, my friend. The energy that you project out is quite affecting.

Now; also be remembering of your dream that you expressed to myself, and the imagery and the symbolization that you presented to yourself in presenting an attractiveness to yourself and appreciating that. In expressing outwardly an energy in which you are appreciating of your own attractiveness in different manners, expressing not expectations but a confidence in your trust of yourself and your abilities, genuinely acknowledging your desire and your want and your freedom, that energy shall be received by other individuals and responded to in the recognition of its attractiveness. Are you understanding?

TOMAS: Yes, yes, I know.

ELIAS: Also, I may express to you to allow yourself an openness. Do not express the rigidness of either/or, or black and white, but allow yourself to generate an openness to many different possibilities and potentials. Notice the moments in which you are expressing a restriction upon yourself in relation to this belief of obligation, and once noticing, allow yourself the expression of your freedom.

TOMAS: Okay. Very well. (Elias chuckles) Well, I think that is all for me. I expect to be in touch with you another time.

ELIAS: Very well! I shall be anticipating this. I shall be anticipating the report of your successfulness in your allowance of yourself.

TOMAS: Okay. Thank you very much.

ELIAS: Trust yourself, my friend. I shall be offering my energy to you.

TOMAS: Thank you very much. Bye.

ELIAS: To you in great affection, my friend, au revoir.

Elias departs at 10:46 AM.
