“Shift Happens”

Participants: Mary (Michael), Elizabeth (Elizabeth), Darrick (Gaorg). (Elizabeth is Mary’s daughter.)

Elias arrives at 1:05 PM. (Time was twenty-five seconds.)

ELIAS: Good afternoon. (Smiling)

ELIZ: Hi! Long time no see.

ELIAS: Quite ... physically!

ELIZ: Right! Okay, I’m setting aside my nervousness. I have questions about the shift. There’s been a lot of confusion lately, and it’s like complete confusion. I don’t know where it came from. I don’t even know how to explain it. For instance, the last public session I was at, I got really excited because we were talking about the shift and different changes, and for some reason, every time I talk about it, I get excited! And then I start thinking about it, and I get real confused. I get almost like depressed, because it just seems like every time I think about it, there’s no future to plan for. There’s nothing to look forward to, and it scares me.

ELIAS: Ah, but there is much to look forward to! And also, there is much to be experienced within this present now. Many individuals look to this shift, and as yourself, are looking futurely and looking forward. It is now. It is within you already. It is merely a question of your opening to the action of the shift. Therefore, you may access the reality of this shift in consciousness presently.

I have expressed to many individuals within your recent past, so to speak – for there is no past – that you will be moving into the action of this shift in increments. In this, you offer yourselves information in areas that you are comfortable with or that do not overwhelm you all at once, for the action of this shift is a change in the entirety of your reality. Therefore, you need not be traumatizing yourselves in moving into this action all at once. When I speak to individuals that the action of this shift shall be entirely accomplished within the end throes of your next century, I express this for the reason that this shall be the accomplishment in its entirety; that the entirety of your globe shall be accepting of this new reality within this dimension, and all of the individuals upon the planet shall be experiencing, as a normal way of life, so to speak, this new reality. But this is not to say that individuals may not be experiencing this shift presently, for you may. You each individually move and allow awareness in the manner that is the least confusing to you individually.

I have expressed previously that within the action of this shift, these continents of your Americas are the initial throes. Therefore, individuals within these countries upon these continents shall be beginning the action of this shift, for this is the direction that you have all chosen within your officially accepted reality, to be creating of mass events which are expressions of Source Events. Other mass events have been expressed beginning in other countries and continents, and spreading throughout your globe. This shift in consciousness within your linear time period initiates upon these continents and moves outward upon your planet, almost to be described as an atmospheric change upon your planet which moves within a wave. This location is your beginning point of your wave. Therefore, individuals within these continents are experiencing initially. As the action continues and the wave grows in momentum, it shall spread to the rest of your planet. Therefore, you are experiencing elements of the shift within a time framework that you may view to be before other individuals. This is merely your perception within a time framework, for the action of the shift is already accomplished. It needs be only realized within your reality.

ELIZ: The only thing that confuses me is ... well, a lot of things before! But now, I don’t quite understand ... how do I put this? ... how it’s going to be accepted. For instance, my mom was telling me about the lady that was talking to her, that was experiencing the shift overwhelmingly, and how she didn’t work. All she did was go to the gym, and her whole family thought she was crazy. It seems that if the whole world is in that kind of a state, who’s going to take care of the world, you know? This is what I’m worried about.

ELIAS: This be the reason that information is offered. The individual of which you speak has been offered information, and in this experiences less trauma presently and holds a greater ability to cope, so to speak, with the opening that she has allowed herself. Each individual shall draw information to themselves to be offering explanation within their confusion, and in this, each individual shall be understanding more of this action within consciousness.

I express to many individuals, and you also: It matters not of other individuals and their choice within the action of this shift. It matters that you look to YOU. Be not concerned with other individuals and how they shall manifest their reality within this shift. Be concerned with how YOU manifest and what YOU allow, for in your allowance, you also lend energy to other individuals to be lessening of their trauma. You are all interconnected.

I express to you in one vein that it matters not of what other individuals experience or express. I also express to you that it matters, for as you gain information, you also may be helpful in sharing the information that you hold.

ELIZ: Verbally?

ELIAS: At times. You will find that as you occupy your attention with you and upon your own experiences and are allowing yourself more and more acceptance of self and your experiences, you shall hold a greater understanding with other individuals. In this, you shall know how to be connecting with other individuals to be helpful. This may not necessarily be an offering of Elias’ information! This may be that you, in interaction with another individual, may recognize experiences and feelings and confusion within them that you also have experienced. In this, you may offer helpfulness to the other individual, in expression that they are not experiencing lunacy; that in reality, their reality is altering, and this is the point.


Attempt to be allowing yourselves to enter into areas of experiencing within this shift, and not holding fearfulness, and continuing to be focusing your attention upon the present now; for no other exists. There is no future; there is no past. There is now – continuously. Therefore, allow yourselves the experience within the now, and be trusting of yourselves. As you allow more of your widening and your experiencing, you also allow yourself more of your language to yourself. Therefore, you also offer yourself more information of self, and of your direction, and of your choices. If you are concerning yourself futurely, you are distracting yourself from listening to yourself. Individuals express to this essence, “What shall I do? Which direction shall I move into?” You may answer these questions for yourselves if you are only listening to yourselves. If you are focusing your attention within the now, you may be surprising yourselves that your self shall speak to you within impressions and impulses and that small, quiet voice within you, which shall offer you your own direction and give you your answers.

You need hold no dependence upon other individuals or this essence for your answers, for you magnificently may offer these answers to yourselves. It is merely a question of remembering and listening to self, and you shall know within you when you are speaking to yourself. You shall hold a recognition of impressions that in your terms shall feel right to you, and you shall know which direction you wish to be choosing within your probabilities. This be the point, and why I express so very often to individuals that they focus upon the now, and self; for in this, you need not be inquiring of this essence! I may be offering you explanations of your reality, and I may be offering you helpfulness within your confusion, but this essence does not choose your probabilities for you. No essence chooses probabilities for you. You choose for yourselves. And as you are listening to other individuals or even listening to what you view to be other essences expressing to you a direction that you must move within, hold this as suspect, for no other individual may offer you your direction.


You hold great abilities. I express to you my interaction with you both, always. And do not think that this “lurking essence” is not watching your progress, for it is! (Grinning)

I express to you, you have not reconnected with our game and you have not inquired as to your entries. Therefore, I shall offer what I have expressed previously within our sessions, which you are objectively unaware of, for you have not inquired. I have expressed, in response to your entry of category, to re-evaluate. The category you may be identifying with, which you were, in part, but not entirely, may be that of prehistoric creatures, not merely felines. I may also express to you that in your entry of snow boarding, this has been offered as less probable, but also expressed to you that you are close. Therefore, within your snow sports, you may connect with the correct impression.

Your game offers you the opportunity to be connecting with your impressions, and also affords you the opportunity to be connecting experientially with your new reality within this shift. This is NOT imagination. It is reality! Therefore, as you are allowing yourselves to be connecting within your impressions and you view yourselves to be drifting off and not connecting with this reality and allowing your imaginations to be “running amuck,” (grinning) you are in actuality connecting with the action of this shift. Your imaginations are not “running amuck!” Your imaginations are reality. You are opening doors for yourselves to view other aspects of your reality, allowing you the opportunity to explore more of reality than you merely view within your officially accepted, physically focused reality.

ELIZ: This explains a lot!

ELIAS: Therefore, why shall you not hold great excitement at the recognition of the opening to tremendous creativity, which lies right before you, for it is within you. (Pause)

I offer the suggestion to you both to be continuing with your connecting with your game, for this is fun, and fun is good! And you accomplish quite well when allowing yourselves the opportunity. You have offered your entries, and few are not accepted. Therefore, view this as your accomplishment in connecting with your impressions, and reality. (Pause)

ELIZ: (To Darrick) Have anything to say? (Pause)

ELIAS: Another quiet little mouse, never speaking! This essence is not quite so intimidating! (Laughter)

ELIZ: Very true ... very true! (Sighing) I’m speechless.

ELIAS: Be acknowledging of yourselves. Remain within your now, and be trusting and accepting of yourselves. This is the most important information that this essence may ever offer you. And I also offer to you both an extension of communication and affection, and an offering that if you are so choosing to be connecting with this essence within any time framework, I am available to you always.

(Humorously) And you may be looking for me to be appearing within your dream state also! (Chuckling)

ELIZ: Okay. Thank you very, very much. It was very helpful.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome. I extend much affection to you both, and also much acknowledgment within your accomplishments, for you ARE accomplishing.

DARRICK: I do have a question. Well actually, I just want something confirmed. I’m pretty sure of it. I feel this pull, like a strong impulse or feeling, to move from Castaic, from this area, and go further north to Mammoth. I also feel a slight pull, not really so much, towards joining the Coast Guard in order to get my affairs in order, but I feel stronger towards this Mammoth deal. It feels more free, and it’s something I want to do more. I just want to know, is that like what I’m telling myself, just to go for it? Just follow my feeling and move to Mammoth?

ELIAS: This offers you a good opportunity to view those small voices within you.

It has been posed previously to this essence: “Which voice shall I listen to? If I am offering myself two voices and I am holding more than one choice, which choice shall be the correct choice and which voice is the voice of myself and my impressions?” I express to you, this be a very good example of this situation.

Now view the two small voices. The stronger voice is the voice to be moving your location to your mountain. The smaller voice is that voice which speaks through your belief systems – the belief systems that you should be engaging certain actions, for this shall allow you discipline that you are lacking, in your view, and this shall create a more responsible individual. This is a belief system. Therefore, one voice speaks from the belief system. The other voice speaks from the intuition. When you are viewing two small voices within you, ask yourself very seriously, “Which voice speaks to me through my belief systems?” And you shall know to listen to the other voice.

Therefore, I do not offer your choices to you, but I express to you that listening to the intuition voice shall be more probable than listening to the belief system voice. This may offer you hints of which direction you may be choosing.

DARRICK: Yeah. That pretty much answers that. Thanks.

ELIAS: Be trusting of yourselves. Do not be looking to other individuals and their belief systems and their judgments and their evaluations upon your choices. Merely be trusting of yourself, and you shall not betray you. You shall also not be creating conflict within self if you are trusting of self and not directing your attention to other individuals’ belief systems.

You confuse yourselves when you are looking outside of yourselves for your answers, for in looking outside of yourselves, you are looking through the filtration of other individuals’ belief systems, and this causes you confusion and conflict. Therefore, trust your own voice and listen to your own language to yourself. This be what I have expressed to you earlier this day. If you are looking to self, if you are opening to experience and listening to you, you shall offer yourselves impressions in very physically focused manners of which direction that you should be moving into or that you are wishing to be moving into, and you shall confirm this to yourselves merely by listening to yourself. You hold the answers already. The impression was yours, not offered by this essence, but this essence may be helpful in confirming to you your own impressions, for you have learned quite well not to be trusting your own impressions and your own language to yourself! But this also is the action of this shift, in moving more into that trust of self and lack of separation to essence ... and it does speak to you! It is never silent with you.

Is this helpful?

DARRICK: Yes, very helpful.

ELIZ: Yes.

ELIAS: Very well. Are you wishing of more questions?

ELIZ: No. And if I think of any, I’ll ask!

ELIAS: Very good, Elizabeth! And also to Gaorg, you may also be expressing of this as opposed to being this little mouse! (Laughter)

Very well. Then I shall bid you both, very lovingly and quite affectionately this day, to be interacting and connecting with each other in lovingness, as I express also to you both, and acceptance. I bid you both a very fond au revoir. Be remembering, you may call upon me! Au revoir.

Elias departs at 1:41 PM.
