“Creating a Wondrous Abandon!”
“Exploring Future Focuses”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and a new participant, Paul (Xutrah).
Elias arrives at 1:27 PM. (Arrival time is 23 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
PAUL: Bon jour, mon ami! (Elias chuckles) I wish to thank you for creating some linear time to speak with me today.
ELIAS: Ah, and you may be thanking of yourself also!
PAUL: Thank you!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: Well, let’s see. Yes, I do have some questions.
ELIAS: Very well.
PAUL: To begin, may I have the essence name and spelling of my family members? First of all, my wife, Anne. (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Dorothy; D-O-R-O-T-H-Y.
PAUL: Okay, and her essence family, alignment, and orientation?
ELIAS: Essence family, Sumari; alignment in this focus, Vold; orientation, common.
PAUL: Thank you. Now for my daughter, Allyson. What is her essence name and spelling, family, alignment, and orientation as well?
ELIAS: Essence name, Rishio; R-I-S-H-I-O. (ree’shee-oe) Essence family, Sumari; alignment, Zuli; orientation, common.
PAUL: Thank you. Now my son, Matthew. (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Ditoe; D-I-T-O-E. (dee’toe) Essence family, Gramada; alignment, Ilda; orientation, common.
PAUL: Thank you. And now for myself. (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Xutrah; X-U-T-R-A-H. (zoo’tra) Essence family, Borledim; alignment, Sumari; orientation, common.
PAUL: Thank you. My wife wishes to know how many physical focuses she has in this dimension, and my question is, how many focuses have we shared? (Pause)
ELIAS: Physical focuses in total numbering in this particular dimension associated with this individual, 786. Numbering of focuses that you share commonly, 14.
PAUL: Thank you. So she’s an “old soul.” (Elias chuckles) And I was wishing to know my fragmentation. (Pause)
ELIAS: This essence is fragmented from the mergence of the essences of Trae, Mileau, and Doss.
PAUL: Okay, thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
PAUL: Being new at this – I just have begun reading your transcripts within the past two or three weeks – I would like to validate some subjective connections that I have been making, if I may.
ELIAS: You may.
PAUL: Let’s see. In a dream a few years ago, I am a scribe sitting at Jesus’ feet, taking notes as fast as I can while he is speaking. I can’t keep up because I am trying to absorb the content at the same time as listening. Because of this, I have a definite case of the “less than’s.”
ELIAS: (Chuckling) You are correct.
PAUL: Is this focus’ name Thymaus? (Pause)
ELIAS: Eliminate “S” at ending of name. Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: So that would be Thymae.
PAUL: Thank you. (Chuckling) A question ... or no, a feeling that I had. I felt rather serious and musty in this focus. Is this a focus that we shared? (Pause)
ELIAS: That I have participated in as an expression of this essence?
PAUL: Yes. (Pause)
PAUL: Was I the scribe that you were referring to when you spoke with Lawrence in my time frame recently? (Pause)
PAUL: Okay. This is very interesting to me, because I have two focuses at major shifts in consciousness; back then, or in our linear time back then, and now, with our current shift in consciousness. Do I have any more focuses at other major shifts in consciousness?
ELIAS: I may express to you that you participate in time frameworks in which there are expressions of movement en masse that you may identify as significant within your history, although not in the same type of capacity as these particular movements that you are referring to.
PAUL: Okay, moving on. In a dream last week set in a quote/unquote “future city,” I am blind and being led by a guide who is also blind. Towards the end of the dream, my guide ran away from me. I was able to follow slowly by looking through my eyelids, and occasionally opening them to confirm my progress.
I’m curious about the imagery that I presented to myself of being blind. I was assuming it was associated with being in the Sumafi family, but this is incorrect. Can you help me in this line?
ELIAS: I shall express to you that what you have offered yourself an opportunity to be viewing is not the creation of dream imagery, but rather a projection of self within consciousness. These are different actions.
In this, as you have allowed yourself to be projecting within consciousness, you have moved your attention to a future focus of yourself and offered yourself a viewing of actions that that particular focus engages.
Now; let me express to you that within this time framework, in association with this shift in consciousness and its movement in this new millennium, individuals are allowing themselves to be accessing information concerning future focuses, or projecting their attention, their awareness, to actual viewing or interaction with future focuses.
This offers an opportunity to be establishing a type of communication in objective terms with another focus of essence that may exhibit more willingness to be participating with you in an objective manner, and therefore lending an expression of energy in helpfulness, so to speak, as you begin incorporating the insertion of this shift into your objective awareness and your officially accepted reality.
Projecting your attention to past focuses offers you information as to expressions and qualities of yourself as essence, but the action of allowing yourself to be interactive with future focuses incorporates a difference in the expression, for those focuses that may be identified as future focuses also allow themselves an opening or a wideness of their objective awareness. Therefore, they do not incorporate hesitation or fearfulness in their encounter with you.
Whereas, focuses which are manifest in what you identify as past are not participating objectively in the action of this shift, and therefore do not offer themselves the same type of objective awareness that you offer to yourself within this present time framework. The interaction shall be exhibited differently in your movement in connecting to, so to speak, those past focuses. There is more of a willingness for interaction in relation to future focuses.
You have offered yourself a beginning point. You have allowed yourself to be projecting within consciousness and accessing another focus. You may continue if you are so choosing in this interaction, and you may be offering yourself information that may be helpful to your movement presently within this shift, as may be offered by that other focus.
PAUL: Objectively, I wish to proceed with opening my consciousness to this shift. It has been my perception that subjectively I still incorporate an element of fear, and this is positive information along those lines.
ELIAS: Let me also express to you, you allow yourself already, in this action, in this projection, two valuable validations.
One is an overriding of the fear that you are speaking of temporarily, and allowing yourself the accomplishment of projecting within consciousness; not in the manner that is expressed – quite narrowly, I may add also – in what individuals identify through your new philosophy of metaphysics, but in a free flow of energy, without your silver cord (humorously) and without the sluggishness of moving in small increments from room to physical space to the identification of mapping a particular course, but merely allowing yourself to spontaneously project to an area of consciousness and a time framework, so to speak – which is a dimension within this dimension – that shall be beneficial to you.
You also allow yourself a validation concerning the reality of future, in future focuses of self. This holds significance also in another expression, for you have chosen to be projecting your awareness to be moving in relation to a specific individual that you view presently to be manifest with what you define or identify as a disability in THIS time framework.
Now; in THAT time framework, it is NOT defined and viewed as a disability, but is recognized as a specific, intentional choice of manifestation to be creating a particular experience, and incorporated in that experience, in the awareness that is held by that focus, it is not an obstacle to be incorporating the experience of blindness. For the individual holds the awareness that physical sight is merely the incorporation of one outer sense, and that your seeing or visual may be incorporated without the engagement of that particular physical sense.
Therefore, this individual has purposely created a particular experience to be offering the exploration of movement NOT incorporating the engagement of one particular outer sense, and overriding, so to speak, that one outer sense through the movement and the expressions of other inner senses, which may offer the same expressions without the outer sense.
YOU have not accomplished this action yet – ha ha! – within your physical time framework, but you DO hold this ability! (Laughing)
PAUL: I have been trying to nurture it, to the best of my ability.
ELIAS: But in this action, you offer yourself a reinforcement in recognition that any ability that may be exhibited by any future focus, you also incorporate now. Therefore, in allowing yourself to view another focus which creates this type of action, you also validate yourself within THIS focus, and reinforce your recognition of the abilities that you hold within this focus.
PAUL: Excellent. May I have the name of that quote/unquote “future focus,” that I may better identify with his abilities, and mine?
ELIAS: You may. This individual within future focus incorporates the physical naming of Randolph.
PAUL: Out of curiosity, were you the guide in that dream?
ELIAS: No. This is what you may term to be a friend of this individual.
PAUL: Okay. Most importantly ... this is the core right now for me to understand. About seven years ago I had a “spiritual experience,” quote/unquote, that set me on a path of joyful sobriety. My state of mind immediately preceding this experience was one of abject despair. In this experience, I entered into a three-dimensional blackness, both auditory and visual, in which I encountered a being – I don’t know how else to explain it. It emanated and filled me with pure, unconditional love. It told me I didn’t have to do what I was doing anymore if I didn’t want to do that.
After some indeterminate amount of time, I had to withdraw from this essence because the feeling was too intense. I’d appreciate help in understanding this experience, which by the way, happened once more since that initial time.
ELIAS: This is your offering to yourself of YOU. This is your offering of yourself with essence.
Let me express to you, within your physical dimension, at times, individuals throughout your history, so to speak, have allowed themselves moments in which they are creating what you may identify in your physical language as a wondrous abandonment.
And in those moments – which many times are preceded by tremendous despair – the individual allows themselves a brief time framework in which there is an actual alteration of their consciousness as it is configured in this physical dimension.
Now; let me express to you, individuals have identified these types of experiences or moments as viewing or experiencing the presence of God or allowing themselves to be within the company of angels, and the experience of presence is overwhelming.
ELIAS: Now; let me also offer to you, within the design of this particular physical dimension, you have created an expression of separation in which you focus aspects of your attention as essence in very specific directions. This creates what I have identified as an individual focus, which is your identification of you.
In that action, in relation to this particular dimension, you quite purposefully create this veil of separation between this one focus of attention and all other expressions of essence and all other attentions of essence. You even create a veil of this attention between the one primary aspect of yourself and all of the other aspects of yourself, which are all quite present and exist quite in the same expression physically as do you in the one aspect of you that you recognize, but you view merely one – the primary expression of yourself. This is your identification of you.
And all that you view to be a part of you, so to speak, you do not actually incorporate as a genuine part of you, but as some element that is outside of you – your higher self, your wider self, your unconscious self, your subjective self. You almost create an actual physical separation between the attention that you recognize and all of these other aspects of you that you incorporate as parts of you, but parts of you that are removed from you, for they are not identifiable to you in the same manner as the primary aspect of you.
Now, this is all created within this particular physical dimension quite purposefully, and has been a very efficient expression in the movement and exploration of this particular physical reality.
But even within that expression, throughout your history, as I have stated, within certain moments, some individuals offer to themselves a moment – or several moments – in which they drop these veils of separation and allow themselves a recognition and an experience of fullness of their being, of themselves.
But in reincorporating the veil of separation, as the experience becomes more and more intense and overwhelming to the individual objectively, the identification of this experience – and of this presence – is so very foreign to your reality within this particular dimension that you create definitions for what the experience may be.
And in this, you identify the gloriousness of the experience and of this being or this presence, and within your objective awareness – which is quite influenced by your beliefs – you assess that this cannot possibly be you, but must be the identification of some wondrous element of consciousness that holds much greater expression than do you, and you struggle with your attempt to be identifying what this expression may be.
In this, at times, especially within moments of great fear or great despair or great anguish within this physical dimension, individuals may create this action of wondrous abandon, and may drop the veils of separation and allow themselves to momentarily experience the wonder and the gloriousness of their own being. This creates an expression of inspiration. It also creates an intense expression of motivation.
Now; I may express to you, the motivation may be created in many forms. Those individuals that you identify throughout your history as martyrs, many times at the moment preceding disengagement or what you term to be death, offer themselves this type of experience, for it creates a tremendous surge of energy which you channel, so to speak, into your experience and configure into the expression of motivation.
You have allowed yourself this type of experience. I may express to you, in a manner of speaking, within this physical reality, you have offered yourself a tremendous gift. (Paul sighs deeply)
This may serve you in many expressions. It may serve you in many directions and in relation to your movement in this shift in consciousness, for you may allow yourself to draw upon these experiences in your recollection, so to speak, and you may remind yourself of the wondrousness of what you are! This may serve you well, in reminding you also of what you hold in capability.
PAUL: Ooh. (Sighing) Yes, it certainly was a gift, and one that I am very grateful, very fortunate to have experienced. I have to be honest and say, I would sure like to be able to do that again!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Now; this is the point of your shift in consciousness ...
ELIAS: ... to be dropping those veils of separation and to be creating a widening of awareness, and incorporating the remembrance into your objective awareness within this physical dimension.
PAUL: So if I may paraphrase briefly, the point of the shift in consciousness is to drop the veil that we have incorporated into this physical dimension of our intimate connectedness with ourselves, our essence.
PAUL: Ooh, that makes it easier!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Or so you may be thinking! (Laughing)
PAUL: Or so I may be hoping!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
For to be accomplishing that action, you also need be accomplishing the movement into the expression of acceptance of self and of your design of this physical dimension – which the design of this physical dimension incorporates belief systems – and the movement into this expression of widening of awareness and the dropping of these veils of separation is accomplished in the acceptance of your belief systems, and in the acceptance and incorporation of trust of self.
PAUL: Ah, yes.
ELIAS: And there, we shall express, my friend, is the rub! Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: Aye, there it be! (Elias laughs) But I must say, this journey I have set for myself, since that experience of knowledge of essence, has been unbelievably, unbelievably fun! (Elias chuckles)
ELIAS: And you may be noticing it becomes easier and easier.
PAUL: Oh, perhaps one has that luxury in looking back!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: It never seems quite as easy in the midst of the throes.
ELIAS: Ah, let me express to you, my friend, that you may be incorporating a thought process.
In the moments that you are viewing tremendous difficulty, express to yourself the recognition that it is difficult merely for the reason that you are complicating your movement, and in actuality, all that you create is already effortless and the movement of your creations are quite simple, but you are so very fond of complicating all of your actions! (Laughing)
PAUL: So, in the program that I participate in, we have a saying: “This is a simple program for very complicated people.”
ELIAS: Quite! I shall express to you, hear hear! (Laughing)
PAUL: (Laughing) Very good! Wow, that was very insightful. I thank you very much for that.
ELIAS: You are very welcome.
PAUL: I have a couple more question here. What is my essence relationship to the physical focus named Rachel? (Pause)
ELIAS: In physical terms or in nonphysical terms?
PAUL: In nonphysical terms; for example, shared focuses, et cetera.
ELIAS: Shared focuses is the identification of physical terms. You do incorporate other focuses, in physical terms. You also have participated in many actions of mergences of essences.
PAUL: That is specifically what I am referring to, I guess, because she has come up in my dreams more than a few times recently. (Elias chuckles) So this would be a mergence of essence, correct?
PAUL: Okay, let’s see. I’m going to ... here, I’ll just say it. Last week ... it wasn’t last week. But do I need a new computer monitor, or are those sporadic flashes just you having some fun?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! Interesting question!
Now; I may express the same inquiry to you. Do you perceive yourself to be needing of a new monitor?
PAUL: (Laughing) I have already purchased one!
ELIAS: Ah! Then you DO perceive yourself to be needing of a new monitor! I shall express to you that you may be “monitoring your monitor!” (Paul laughs) And I may be monitoring your monitor also! Ha ha ha ha ha! This is in actuality quite fun! Ha ha ha!
PAUL: It is!
ELIAS: And I may express to you, what you view upon your monitor is not merely an incorporation of other energy which may be associated with this essence, but an interaction of energy between yourself and this essence. (Laughing)
PAUL: Oh! Does this mean that I need to be noticing more?
ELIAS: Ah, and I shall be quite acknowledging of your recognition of that! (Chuckling)
PAUL: Excellent. Now, we are, in linear terms, running short on time. Is there anything you wish to express to me – quote/unquote, “give me a heads up?”
ELIAS: Ah. I express to you, continue within your noticing.
I shall also express to you, in that noticing, allow yourself to be incorporating that action in relation to this future focus that you have accessed, for the movement that you are creating presently and the probabilities that you are creating presently opens a door, so to speak, between yourself and this future focus, and you may be allowing yourself information through that door, so to speak.
I shall also express to you, do not be discounting of yourself so very intensely!
PAUL: (Laughing) Ah, you know me too well!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) You are moving quite efficiently, and you need not be expressing discounting of yourself quite so often! (Chuckling)
PAUL: Ah, you mean I’ve been “shoulding” on myself!
ELIAS: Ah, once again! (Laughing) You may be attempting an exercise of acknowledging yourself ... and PLAY with that expression, for that expression is less familiar in your creations than the expression of discounting! (Chuckling)
PAUL: Indeed! We tend to walk the paths that are familiar, do we not?
ELIAS: You do. Therefore, offer yourself the opportunity to walk the unfamiliar and experience the fun!
PAUL: Well, this interaction with you has gone more than a little bit towards that, I hope.
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct, and I shall continue to offer an expression of energy to you, to be encouraging in your new adventure! (Chuckling)
PAUL: Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend. I anticipate our continued interaction and I offer to you an expression of tremendous affection.
PAUL: And I for you, Elias.
ELIAS: To you, today and always, au revoir.
PAUL: Au revoir.
Paul’s note: The tone that Elias’ voice took on during the last couple minutes of the session touched me deeply. This “real live dead guy” cares very much.
Elias departs at 2:22 PM.
