ďExercise: Dance!Ē

ďIn the Expression of Trust, You Generate Much More EasilyĒ

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Naomi (Kallile).

Elias arrives at 8:48 AM. (Arrival time is 25 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good day!

NAOMI: Good afternoon, Elias. How great to speak with you!

ELIAS: And you also!

NAOMI: Thank you. I have questions, like everyone. This being my first session, I would like to know my essence name and orientation and so forth. (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence name, Kallile, K-A-L-L-I-L-E (kuh LEEL). And your impression as to essence families?

NAOMI: I think Sumafi, and Tumold aligned.

ELIAS: Correct.

NAOMI: And I think Iím thought focused.

ELIAS: Correct.

NAOMI: Orientation, common.

ELIAS: Correct.

NAOMI: Okay, great! I would like to know my essence color, the color tone thatís associated with it.

ELIAS: And your impression?

NAOMI: Something close to indigo?

ELIAS: Purple.

NAOMI: I suspected there might be some purple in there. Iím really interested to know if thereís a particular musical pitch or chord that I resonate to. (Pause)

ELIAS: Musical note D.

NAOMI: And chord of D also?


NAOMI: Is there a chord associated with the Shift?


NAOMI: Is that because thereís so much different energy going on?


NAOMI: Iíd like to know if the pendulum I have been using is valid for me as a way of connecting with my subjective situation?

ELIAS: Yes. It is a focal point, allowing you to focus your energy and your attention, and therefore providing yourself with an avenue to be listening to yourself in a concentration.

NAOMI: Iíve been concerned that I may be influencing the responses I get with my own energy versus...

ELIAS: But it IS your energy! (Chuckles)

NAOMI: So basically itís telling me what I want to hear at the time.


NAOMI: Well, Iím such an impatient person, and I want to know the future right now. (Laughs)

ELIAS: (Chuckles) But the future IS now. Therefore, the manner in which you recognize what you shall be creating in the future is to be paying attention to what you are generating now, for that sets the direction of the future.

NAOMI: I saw some books that would supposedly help you get answers to questions by using the pendulum. Is that a valid method? Would that be worth pursuing?

ELIAS: It is your choice. You are aware that this is an avenue of communication that you have established with yourself, and if you are choosing to incorporate specific methods that you resonate with and you trust within your interaction of this focal point, that is acceptable.

Be remembering that these are methods, but that what you are engaging is allowing yourself to practice trusting your own communications and trusting yourself in trusting your impressions and what you offer to yourself, viewing that as valid and not dismissing it.

NAOMI: One more question about the pendulum, when I ask questions about other peopleís energy, is that as valid as when Iím asking about my own?

ELIAS: Yes, but also recognize that this is associated with your perception. Therefore, listen to your intuition and trust your impressions, but remember that although they are valid Ė which they are Ė they are associated with your perception and therefore filtered through your expressed beliefs. They are quite real, for beliefs are quite real, and your perception is quite real for it creates all of your reality. Therefore, it is not invalid but that does not mean that it is an absolute.

NAOMI: I understand; thank you. I have some questions now about conflict within myself, at least thatís how I categorize it. The first one is why do I not allow myself to play music? I feel like at times Iím actually stifling myself and suppressing an urge, and then at other times I wonder if maybe that is just because I donít want to do it this time. Is it a bleed-through from another focus, am I concentrating on something else, or is it more like a lack of acceptance of myself?

ELIAS: It is associated with a lack of trust in your abilities, a lack of trust of yourself to allow yourself to actually accomplish and succeed, and a skepticism that is expressed within yourself that you may fall short of your expectation of yourself. Therefore, rather than risk the disappointment, you restrict the freedom. But the risk of the disappointment is an anticipation and a projection, an assumption that in conjunction with your lack of trust of your ability you automatically assume that you shall fail, or that perhaps you shall not fail but you shall fall short of what you want.

Now; I may express to you that in allowing yourself your freedom and allowing yourself to engage the process in a playful manner, not generating those expectations of outcome with yourself, you may surprise yourself with your abilities.

NAOMI: And it has happened. There have been times when I have truly enjoyed it, usually with other people, and that made me wonder whether I was using too much of their energy, but I realize itís there.

ELIAS: (Nodding) Yes.

NAOMI: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.

NAOMI: Another source of what I consider conflict is I believe I am addressing religious belief systems, and it appears that I chose my parents in order to do this. Would you say thatís correct?


NAOMI: I thought I was doing really well with it. (Elias chuckles and Naomi laughs) I had a significant emotional event a couple years ago which I thought was kind of watershed, and I thought helped me step back and be more objective and not let it affect me, but it still does.

ELIAS: (Humorously) Ah, once again the one-time event that shall be the hallmark and eliminate the problem, and therefore it shall be unnecessary to present that ever after!

NAOMI: I know youíve said many times that we want and need to get beyond the intellectual analyzing and do the experience, and that we need to do the experience many times, but...

ELIAS: It is not necessarily a need, but choice is an inherent expression within you all. It is a quality of consciousness, and in this, let me explain to you that if you are generating an expression of acceptance of any belief in any moment and solidifying that into an absolute, you deny yourself choice subsequently. Therefore, this is not the manner in which acceptance is accomplished.

You continue to be generating your process of exploration and experiences, and in that process you present to yourselves many times similar situations as an opportunity to continue to express that acceptance for it is not generated in solidity, for that would deny you choice. That is contrary to the BEING of consciousness and it also denies you change, which is also the being of consciousness. Therefore, in creating that type of an absolute in association with acceptance, what you would be expressing is the denial of your very existence and the nature of what you are.

This is the reason that this is not expressed, but I am quite understanding the unfamiliarity and the automatic association of eliminating beliefs that you view to be negative or limiting or beliefs that you do not agree with, which may be also confusing. For, you may incorporate beliefs as expressed beliefs and not agree with your own expressed beliefs. That is not to say that they are not expressed; you may merely intellectually disagree with your own expressed beliefs.

This is the reason that it is important to be paying attention to yourself and becoming familiar intimately with yourself and what are your expressed beliefs and what are their influences, and in that, recognizing which influences you prefer and which influences you do not, and therefore allowing yourself to choose to manipulate your energy in the direction of your preference rather than in the direction of automatic responses of the limitations.

NAOMI: Thatís what you mean by turning your attention. It is simply a matter of turning your attention to your preference?

ELIAS: Yes, and allowing yourself permission to express that in your own freedom, recognizing that they are YOUR preferences and therefore they are not absolutes, and that it is not bad or wrong if other individuals express different preferences.

Regardless of the strength in which they may be expressing them, once you genuinely are accepting and trusting of yourself and what you express, the threat of the differences of other individuals no longer is expressed, and therefore you move to the balance of generating the awareness that you may cooperate with other individuals without acquiescing and without generating agreement.

NAOMI: I know that I say that I donít judge, but I still do a lot. The really difficult part for me seems to be not so much what I prefer to believe but pressure from the outside. Sometimes itís just hard to deal with that without being judgmental.

ELIAS: Which is also a familiar action, to be allowing other individuals to dictate your choices. That is a very familiar expression, and it is unfamiliar to be directing yourself without incorporating an automatic association of arrogance or of selfishness or of uncaring. There is quite a difference between caring and concerning.

NAOMI: I have read that in some of the sessions and appreciate that difference. So basically all I need to say is, ďThis is my preference,Ē and let it go, and whatever they choose to do with it, thatís their thing.

ELIAS: (Nods) But remember, as you continue to practice trusting yourself and trusting your allowance of your preferences, and you genuinely allow yourself to experience that trust, what you shall reflect to yourself is the same, and you shall not be encountering the opposition. Even if you are encountering some opposition, you shall perceive it quite differently, and you shall not respond to it genuinely. For you shall automatically reconfigure the energy, which also is received by the other individual, which reconfigures their energy for they are also reflecting; and in their reflection, they are receiving YOUR energy expression, which is what influences them in their blueprint of you.

NAOMI: Isnít that amazing how that works! (Laughing)

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Quite efficient!

NAOMI: I want to ask a little bit about some imagery I have been presenting myself. First of all, can you shed some light on what my eye watering is all about and perhaps some things with my vision that have been going on, not right now but in the past?

ELIAS: And your impression?

NAOMI: My impression is almost literally an overflowing of sadness that Iím not allowing myself to express another way. (Elias nods) And thatís it?

ELIAS: An automatic release of energy.

NAOMI: I thought so. Can you give any suggestions on how to neutralize that? (Pause)

ELIAS: I shall offer one exercise, and I shall also offer to you to be paying attention and allowing yourself distraction, but the exercise shall also be influencing in emphasizing that to you and actually moving you into more of an ease of not discounting yourself. I shall express to you to incorporate the action, the physical action, each time you are noticing your own resistance or noticing your own acquiescing or noticing your expression of receding and denying yourself your own expressions, each time you notice, engage the physical action of dancing. Each time!

NAOMI: (Laughs) Each time.

ELIAS: And within quite a short time framework you shall be dancing so very often that you shall be amusing yourself and begin to appreciate yourself!

NAOMI: And I will be experiencing some lunacy there and enjoying it.

ELIAS: (Laughs) This also serves another purpose, for it is an actual physical action in which, if you are allowing yourself to genuinely incorporate this exercise, you shall find yourself incorporating that action in physical locations with other individuals observing, which moves you into an expression of trust. For, your attention must be upon yourself and in allowance of your own trust, and not focused upon concerning yourself with the perceptions of other individuals, which is also an excellent practice in focusing your attention on you in the moment and offering yourself that acceptance.

NAOMI: I think that would be highly efficient.

ELIAS: And it is also an expression of playfulness. (Chuckles)

NAOMI: Yes, I can always use more of that. (Elias laughs) Physical imagery again Ė what am I telling myself with blood sugar levels when they drop so fast? I believe thatís whatís happening. Itís only very occasionally, but it happens really fast. Do you see anything?

ELIAS: Exhaustion.

NAOMI: Really!

ELIAS: You generate this manifestation in time frameworks in which you have been incorporating a prolonged force of your own energy, and to gain your attention you generate this physical manifestation to stop.

NAOMI: So it would really be helpful if I would find some other way to recharge physically before that happens?

ELIAS: No. It would be significant for you to be paying attention in those time frameworks to your energy and how you are generating a tension and forcing yourself, forcing your energy to continue. Your indication, your evidence is to pay attention to the DOING aspect of you, time periods in which you are DOING contrary to what you want and you continue to push your energy and yourself in a direction in conjunction with expectations, rather than with what you want. You have become quite proficient at that action.

NAOMI: Actually, Iím pretty good at it. (Laughs) But now that I think of it, all the occasions I can think of happened at work, and I do physical work which canít really be stopped at that point.

ELIAS: It is not a matter of stopping. It is a matter of paying attention to HOW you are doing Ė not what you are doing but how you are doing, for the how is significant. You may generate any action, you may choose to be engaging any action, and HOW you express that action is significant.

For if you are generating an action and you are generating a perception in fun and allowance and ease, you generate a specific type of energy. If you are incorporating the same action but you are also forcing your energy, expecting of yourself, and your energy is one of tension, you generate a very different projection of energy and a very different experience.

NAOMI: Dancing might help that also!

ELIAS: Quite. (Chuckles) For it is as I have stated, a physical action which allows the release of energy.

NAOMI: I need to check this tape here, I think. (1) Okay, thank you. One more thing about imagery, Iíve noticed this year my flowers did not do well at my house, and Iíve had really pretty nice ones up until now. Can you tell me what imagery Iím presenting to myself with that?

ELIAS: And your impression?

NAOMI: Iím confused about that one, because this year has really been what I think of as a real opening up for me, very fast and large. When I think about flowers not blooming, is that an expression of me not blooming, and if so, in what area would that be? I feel like Iím really much more open.

ELIAS: It is not imagery concerning not blossoming. It is imagery of change.

NAOMI: Ah! Thereís certainly been a lot of that. (Elias chuckles) Thatís the story of my life! (Laughs) In one of the sessions you gave the Elias challenge, in which you told people to try to discover their intent by noticing what they were doing and choosing. I just wanted to validate with you if possible, I think I know my basic intent in this focus. Everything I look back at has been a desire and a push toward independence. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Yes, and an exploration of that process.

NAOMI: It has been difficult at times in relationships with other people who donít understand that. I didnít understand that for a long time. (Elias chuckles) Now it might work better if I understand that about myself?


NAOMI: There have been times when it has been a real struggle.

I have a few questions for other people, that friends wanted to ask.

ELIAS: Very well.

NAOMI: My friend Joy is kind of new to the information and she would like to know her essence name and orientation and so forth, if you would. (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence name, Boznise, B-O-Z-N-I-S-E (BAZ neess). And your impression as to essence families?

NAOMI: I donít know her well enough to really get an impression, and I donít know the families well enough.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) That is an intellectual response! I requested impressions.

NAOMI: Impressions! (Laughs) Sumari?

ELIAS: Alignment.

NAOMI: And Tumold?

ELIAS: Vold belonging to.

NAOMI: You know, I almost said that. (Laughs)

ELIAS: (Laughs) Pay attention!

NAOMI: I have to trust myself, donít I? Also, her orientation?

ELIAS: Common.

NAOMI: Is she emotional focus?


NAOMI: Thank you, for her. Carter/Cynthia would like to know if Ruvian was his Atlantean focus. Would that be his focus name?


NAOMI: How would you spell that? He wasnít sure about the spelling.

ELIAS: Express to Cynthia to pay attention to his impressions and it shall be incorporated.

NAOMI: Same with Napier, is that his Dream Walker focus, Napier?


NAOMI: Also, is he an observing essence or focus of Claire Booth Luce?

ELIAS: Observing.

NAOMI: My friend Elena believes she has a Korean boy focus, and she would like to know his essence name.

ELIAS: Therefore, it is the same as her essence name, for it is a focus.

NAOMI: As hers, Deena? (Elias chuckles) Thatís interesting.

Can you tell me how many focuses I have in this dimension?

ELIAS: Eight hundred thirty-four.

NAOMI: And how many currently, or in this time frame?


NAOMI: I think that I have many in this area called Kentucky, quite a few, because I feel an affinity, especially in the southern areas.

ELIAS: Several, yes.

NAOMI: Several in England, maybe 19th century England?


NAOMI: Would you say that most of my focuses are male?

ELIAS: There are more than there are female. Not dramatically, but there are more, yes.

NAOMI: Do I have some kind of connection with Charles Dickens?

ELIAS: You incorporate a focus in that time framework which has experienced in its focus many similarities to a character in one of his stories, very similar experiences.

NAOMI: I think if I ask you what character, you will tell me to investigate Ė or can you tell me that?

ELIAS: Copperfield.

NAOMI: A question about manipulating reality, and I know in fact you said something similar to if we donít want to be focusing our attention in a certain direction to move it. My interpretation is if we want to change our reality, we change our attention, we move our attention and focus on something different. Can you talk a little bit about how that relates to whatís happening subjectively? The way I understand it, it happens there first.

ELIAS: No. This is a very common misunderstanding. I have expressed many times, objective and subjective are in harmony with each other continuously, and one does not follow the other. They are simultaneously generating the same direction. They merely are expressed in different manners in imagery and in action. In this, there are many expressions that you naturally generate that you associate as one action following another, and they do not, necessarily. It is a matter of how you are moving your attention and what you are focusing your attention upon.

As an example, the reason that individuals prior to this point have defined emotion as a reaction or a response is that it appears to you that emotion follows an event. It does NOT follow an event. It is generated in the same moment that you are generating imagery in association with it. It is immediately identifying what you are doing in the moment, but your attention is focused upon what you are doing or what you are engaging and therefore not upon the communication, and it appears that the communication or the signal FOLLOWS an action.

It also appears at times that objective waking imagery follows dream imagery. At times, you may incorporate dream imagery and subsequent to that, within time framework, it appears to you that you generate objective waking imagery that is quite similar. Therefore, there is a lag in time. In actually, as I have stated, the imagery that you present to yourselves in dreams is an objective translation of an action that is occurring subjectively.

Now; the action that is occurring subjectively is also occurring objectively, but objective imagery is quite abstract. Therefore, that may be being expressed in many different manners that you are not necessarily associating or translating or understanding the connection or the similarity to the dream imagery.

If it is significant enough in your interest in any particular time framework, you may also generate a very similar expression of waking objective imagery in conjunction with other imageries of the same nature; but if you have not generated the connection and if it is an interest enough to you, eventually you shall present yourself with an experience that parallels the dream imagery enough that you understand the connection Ė which you also at times generate to validate to yourselves that the objective and subjective are in harmony with each other, and to allow yourselves evidence that the subjective awareness is not some other entity which is directing you without your permission.

NAOMI: I resist being directed anyway, so... (Laughs) Iíve been having fun actually with some things where I objectively think I want a certain action to happen, a certain activity, and then I let it go and it happens. Iíve been having some fun with that. I would like to do it more, and also subjectively I want to be able to feel the connection and know itís there. Iím not sure how to get there, as far as knowing when I do want to change my physical reality the most efficient way to go about doing that and how to feel the connection. Does that make sense?

ELIAS: That is also a matter of trusting yourself, practicing with that trust of your abilities and recognizing that in the expression of trust, you generate much more easily. It is also a matter of paying attention to what you are actually doing in the moment and not confusing yourself or deceiving yourself in the association that the thoughts are generating what subsequently is created.

For that is an easy snare, to being moving your attention more so to thought, out of balance with what you are actually doing and communicating, and relying on thought to be creating your reality, which it does not do, and therefore you also incorporate tremendous potential for disappointment.

NAOMI: Iíve been trying to be real careful with that, because Iím aware that thought is not the creator.

ELIAS: Correct. Pay attention to what you are doing, for that is your greatest indicator. It also is quite challenging. For many, many, many time periods within your actual day, you are expressing automatic pilot. You are not aware of what you are actually doing.

NAOMI: It just basically comes down to a matter of trusting. Iíll stop, look at whatís happening and say, ďI thought thatís what I wanted, and now I KNOW thatís what I wanted because thatís whatís really happening! So if I can just do more of that... (Laughs)

ELIAS: It is merely a matter of attention and generating that flexibility.

NAOMI: I donít really have any other questions at this point, but Iíd like to ask you if you have anything that you would like to tell me today before we end?

ELIAS: Do not forget to incorporate your exercise.

NAOMI: (Laughs) Thank you! Thank you very much, Elias.

ELIAS: You are welcome. In allowing yourself your openness, you may be perhaps recognizing my energy with you also from this point, and I shall be prodding in your playfulness and your noticing. (Laughs)

NAOMI: Iíll be counting on it.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) I offer you great encouragement and tremendous lovingness, and I anticipate our next meeting. In wondrous fondness, my dear friend, au revoir.

NAOMI: Goodbye.

Elias departs at 9:38 AM.


(1) Naomiís note: The session did not record. Either the recorder wasnít working, I didnít know how to use it, or Elias was telling me to pay attention in the moment.
