“Physical Creations Matter Not”
“What Matters is Your Perception”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Letty (Castille).
Elias arrives at 1:28 PM. (Arrival time is 24 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning, Castille!
LETTY: Good morning, and good day to you too! How are you, Elias?
ELIAS: (Chuckling) As always!
LETTY: Close to me, I know, and everybody else. I did feel you a lot in Florida. Thank you!
ELIAS: You are quite welcome! (Chuckling)
LETTY: And I do want to talk about Florida. But before that, I have a question from Isabel, and one question for Marta.
ELIAS: Very well.
LETTY: Okay. Isabel is going with Marta to Egypt next month, and they are very excited! They want to know if you can give them some advice on how they would be able to connect to Ikisha‘s focus there. I know they are going to be in Cairo most of the time, but is there any advice you want to give them so that they could be noticing?
ELIAS: I shall express to you that Isabel may be recognizing automatically her connections, so to speak, and if allowing herself to be open, she may be allowing herself some interesting noticings and experiences. I shall merely state to you to offer to her to not be creating expectations, but merely to allow her experience to be flowing.
In this, she may not entirely assimilate objectively what she is experiencing and connecting with in the moment as she is moving through this physical location, but she shall offer herself the objective recognition as she assimilates within a time framework, so to speak, in relation to this adventure. (Chuckling)
LETTY: Okay. They’re very excited!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Quite understandably so!
LETTY: Um-hmm! Okay, I will pass this on to her.
Marta is a little bit unsettled and very concerned as to why, within our company, we haven’t been able to do business in Illinois, and we just keep getting the door shut in our face. He wants to know if it is something within him, or us, or what is it? Maybe we, as a group, are creating this? (Pause)
ELIAS: I shall express to Marta in association with individual creation, for you are inquiring as to what may be viewed as an association of group participation. But in this, be understanding that all of the individuals that are participating in this particular interaction are also creating individually. Therefore, they may be participating together in appearance objectively or surfacely, so to speak, but in actuality, each player, so to speak, is creating their individual movement and reality.
Now; in this, there are differences in perceptions, and in the recognition of the differences of perceptions, you may also express to Marta that this creates differences in the actual realities, and as individuals engage a strength in the expressions of differences, and hold singularly to their individual perception – which is their individual reality – and continue to express the right and wrong, so to speak, of the perceptions, there creates an obstacle in the flow of creating an action or a manifestation jointly. Are you following thus far?
LETTY: Yes, I am.
ELIAS: In this, the imagery which is created and manifest may alter as any of the individuals that are participating in the scenario begin to open to their individual periphery, incorporating a wider awareness objectively and expressing in genuineness the acceptance of their own reality and perception, and also the acceptance of the reality of the perception of the other individuals.
Are you understanding?
LETTY: Well, I think I might have to read it again.
ELIAS: The action which occurs in the engagement of several or many individuals, or even between merely two individuals, shall flow in relation to the expression of acceptance which is expressed and exhibited.
Therefore, you may allow yourselves to be noticing that as you create an acceptance within self, and a lack of doubt within self in your expression of trust of your abilities and your direction – this is important – as you express in that manner, you also begin to be expressing in an automatic movement of acceptance of the perception and reality of other individuals.
(Intently) Now; in the acceptance of the reality of other individuals, and the lack of threat of difference in the recognition of difference, you eliminate obstacles. Whereas as you incorporate, as individuals, a holding to your individual energy in the rightness or wrongness of your perception, you create the movement of a lack of acceptance within self, and also in your expression in relation to other individuals, and that is the energy that creates obstacles.
LETTY: Okay. I know exactly what you mean. It makes so much sense. Wow, this is very ... this is a great experience! (Elias chuckles) I can apply that to anything!
LETTY: I have never quite understood group energy, working together. But this makes so much sense, the acceptance.
ELIAS: This be the reason that I am continuously directing your attention to self.
LETTY: Well, Elias, speaking of self, (Elias chuckles) this relates to Florida. I want to talk to you a little bit about it, because I did try ... I made myself pay attention to self and how I reacted in some of those situations. As you know, Califa has tremendous energy, and I continue to see him playing on his father and poking the right buttons, and I did try to stay away from that, I think, objectively. But there was something very interesting that I read in a transcript yesterday about the fact that maybe I still did react internally, but maybe not outwardly.
LETTY: Because I’ve felt very emotional about this a couple of times, if you remember.
Now; be noticing, Castille, even within this moment presently, in your engagement of conversation with myself, you are creating a tension.
LETTY: Yes. I feel it. (Elias chuckles) Yeah, I need to relax.
ELIAS: Yes. Draw your attention back to self, not outside of self, and allow yourself to be addressing to your own expression of RELEASING tension, for you are exhibiting a tremendous surge in your energy, creating tension, and you are creating constriction.
LETTY: Yes. (Coughing slightly)
ELIAS: (Speaking slowly and calmly) Therefore, in this present now, you are speaking with myself. You are engaging conversation. There is no expression of tension in this moment. We exchange in ease, and in an environment of relaxation.
In this, we shall discuss, and I shall offer you information, and we shall address to this now, and not be projecting into the experience of past which is associated with the tension. Move yourself to the now. (Pause)
LETTY: (Taking a deep breath) Okay.
ELIAS: Very good. Be present with me within the now, and allow yourself a lack of constriction, and relax, and we shall continue, for I choose not to be participating in the perpetuation of your engagement of tension. You have already gained your attention. Therefore, allow it to go.
In this, you are correct. In your experience with these individuals, you have not been offering an outward expression of conflict, so to speak, or an outward expression of judgment. But it matters not, for inwardly and objectively, you have been participating in this action regardless.
Now; be remembering, and allow yourself the awareness of discussions that we have engaged, you and I, in relation to perception and what you create within your reality.
I have stated previously, the outward manifestations matter not, and in this experience, you offer yourself an example, in physical terms, of what I am speaking to you of.
It matters not what you may be physically creating within your reality, for these expressions are fleeting, so to speak, and are quite volatile. They are easily changed. Outward expressions, manifestations, even solid objects are easily altered. Therefore, the outward manifestation holds little importance or significance within your reality.
What holds tremendous significance and importance is your perception, the instrument that creates the outward manifestations, and the beliefs that influence the instrument, which is the perception. For the perception, being the instrument that creates your reality, continues to create in the manner that it is directed in association with your beliefs.
Therefore, it is not what is being created that holds significance, but what is creating the expressions of what is created. Are you understanding?
LETTY: Yes. I was paying attention to the results ...
LETTY: ... not to the process.
ELIAS: And this is quite familiar and therefore quite understandable that you shall move in this direction, for this is what you are accustomed to in how you create your reality, and this is also why I am offering you information concerning how you create your reality, that you may allow yourself to recognize your ability to be manipulating that energy and that reality.
Your perception is not fixed. It is not an immobile object. It is not a stationary instrument. It is a mechanism, in a manner of speaking, and in this, it moves, or it holds the ability to be moving. At times, your perception holds and is not in motion, so to speak, for it holds in its design. It holds in the design that you have created in relation to the influence of your beliefs.
You may view your perception, as this instrument, in like manner to your hand. Your hand, in your physical reality, holds the ability to be creating many expressions of manifestations. You may create many, many objects with your hand. You may create many movements with your hand. You may offer many expressions with your hand. Therefore, it is an instrument of creation, in a manner of speaking.
LETTY: Hmm. Great analogy.
ELIAS: In this, your perception is also an instrument of creation.
Now; you may hold your hand stationary, and it shall not move and it shall not be creating. You may move your hand in a particular design; let us express, in the manner of writing, so to speak. You may develop a particular design of physical script/writing with your hand, and in the familiarity and the ease of that expression of writing, you may allow yourself the recognition that your hand holds the ability to be writing in a different fashion, but you automatically express your handwriting in a familiar manner.
This is an outward manifestation, an outward creation. The physical design or exhibition of the handwriting itself matters not. The flair, the style, the expression of the physical writing itself holds little importance or significance.
The act of creating that writing holds significance, for you hold an intention in that action. You create that physical action of writing as an expression of some type of communication, be it to another individual or be it to yourself.
But the actual ink upon your page, and the design of that expression of the ink upon your page, matters not. And if you are so choosing, you may be creating the actual physical exhibition of that writing in a very different manner, but you do not. You develop a design which is familiar to you within your expression, and you continue to create in that manner.
Now; in association with your hand as the instrument creating the expression, you are limiting your hand to one particular action, one particular design of action. Your hand holds the ability to be creating many designs of action, but you are creating a repetition of that one design. Your perception may be viewed in similar manner.
You hold the ability to be turning your perception and focusing the attention of that perception in many different expressions, many different avenues, many different directions, but you direct your perception to be creating your reality in a manner that is familiar to you. Be it comfortable or uncomfortable, it matters not. It is familiar. Therefore, it is automatic.
LETTY: Yes, I recognize my automatic responses, even when they’re internal.
ELIAS: And this is an element of the point, Castille, is [that] the outward manifestation or the lack of outward manifestation is not important, for the perception is creating regardless. The energy is expressed regardless, and the affectingness of the energy is manifest regardless of how you are expressing outwardly or not expressing outwardly.
LETTY: I have a question. You know, I do notice at the moment now, as I react or feel that emotion or express inwardly, whatever it may be, and in a way, it’s like part of me says, I don’t want to be that way. Is this also related to what I’ve been working on, with myself and my self-acceptance?
ELIAS: Yes. The automatic response in many situations, in many behaviors, in many expressions is to be assessing and noticing those expressions, and thusly creating the objective thought process that what you are creating is unacceptable and wrong or uncomfortable or bad, and therefore, the immediate association is eliminating that action and replacing that action with a different action.
(Intently) I continue to express to you all, the point of the interaction that we engage together is that you allow yourselves information, that you may be moving into the expression of acceptance; not the continuation of judgment, not the elimination of any of your reality, but the acceptance of you, the acceptance of your perception, and the acceptance of all of your reality.
In this, as you create that action, you are also automatically altering it.
LETTY: So that’s where the change comes in.
ELIAS: Yes. (Pause)
Now; the expression in which you confuse yourself and you create a feeling within yourself of being stifled or stuck is that you may be recognizing inwardly that you are creating of certain expressions, certain reactions, certain responses that are engaging judgments, and within those moments, your automatic response is to be rejecting of your expression and chastising yourself for creating in the manner that you are.
LETTY: Is that why I created an infection, kind of like a cold, while I was there?
ELIAS: This is an expression of frustration.
LETTY: Um-hmm. Well, I haven’t done that in a while!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Let me express to you, Castille, as you are already aware objectively, in the intensity of certain experiences and moments that you feel a lack of choices and a frustration, for you objectively are not offering to yourself what you perceive to be solutions, you direct that intensity of energy in frustration into physical manifestations concerning health.
ELIAS: Therefore, as you experienced the creation of intensity of frustration within yourself in that time framework, you also have expressed the outward manifestation of this illness.
LETTY: So in other words, to help me avoid this in the future, I need to work ... well, if I continue working on my self-acceptance and self-trust ... it’s me going to that point, I guess, because I want to help.
ELIAS: Quite, and what have we spoken of many, many, many times? Your movement in automatic expressions in relation to personal responsibility. How other individuals interact with each other is not your responsibility.
In the moment that you begin recognizing the response within yourself to the interactions and creations and choices of other individuals, allow yourself the same action that we have discussed in relation to your breathing.
I have offered you this exercise and information concerning your breathing quite purposefully, in the recognition that this may eventually be expanded into other expressions within your focus....
ELIAS: But that this offers you an opportunity individually within yourself to practice this particular exercise, not necessarily in the confusion or complication of interaction with other individuals.
Now; you have incorporated a time framework of practicing individually with yourself in this exercise in relation to your breathing, and you have offered yourself validation in your accomplishment with that practicing. Now you may expand your awareness of that action, and allow yourself the application of that action in other expressions.
ELIAS: In this, you shall notice quite objectively, and even physically and emotionally, time frameworks in which you experience an acceleration of your emotional expression and physical tension, and as you notice this movement within yourself, this rise of energy within yourself in relation to the interactions of other individuals, you may also incorporate your exercise of relaxing, and that shall offer you an avenue to be incorporating more clarity, and allow you to be remembering within self that these are the choices of other individuals, and you hold no responsibility for those choices, nor may you be altering of those choices.
Therefore, as you create this tension and these judgments, so to speak, you are not altering the situation – you are not altering the perception of the other individuals – and in actuality, you are lending energy to their perpetuation.
For the tension that you express outwardly – regardless of physical manifestation, regardless of physical expression or the lack of physical expression in communication – the energy that you are expressing in tension outwardly in relation to the other individuals is accepted and allowed by those individuals, for they also are creating that type of energy, and therefore, they receive that energy in acceptance, in fueling what they are creating.
LETTY: Yes. So, when I actually ended up talking to Califa for a little while by himself later, was that helpful or not? I mean, I felt much more relaxed by then, of course, ‘cause this is after two double glasses of wine!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: That’s when I called you ... and I know you remember! (Elias chuckles) With this little boy, sometimes I feel, whether we attract each other or whatever to each other, the circumstance of being alone is like, he seems to be open to me, but I don’t know whether ... and I don’t want to put a right or wrong issue with it, and it shouldn’t matter, but I just wanted your opinion.
ELIAS: I shall express to you, I am understanding of your attempt in this situation – and I am understanding of your motivation in your attempt – in expression between yourself and this individual.
Now; let me also express to you that you may be much more affecting in your interaction with this individual, and in this individual’s interaction with you, as you allow yourself to not concern yourself with his choices or with his behaviors, but with yourself and your energy.
YOU choose to be responding or not responding. You may not create a thought process in association with your choice, but you are choosing to be participating and to be affected, or not to be participating and not to be affected, and as you choose to be affected, you offer the payoff that is sought, but you also incorporate conflict.
In this, if you are turning your attention to self and not concerning yourself with the choices and creations of the other individual – and not RECEIVING those choices in what you may term to be a personal association – you may free yourself to be merely expressing YOUR choices, and not offering the payoff that perpetuates the behavior that you engage conflict with.
LETTY: Right, and that’s what I did, I realize now, as I paid attention to his behavior.
ELIAS: Which is holding your attention upon the other individual, not upon self.
LETTY: Oh, this is an enlightening moment, Elias! (Elias chuckles) I want to ask ... and of course, I’ve been thinking a lot about this ‘cause I knew I wanted to discuss it with you, ‘cause I found myself paying attention to myself, yet I didn’t quite understand what I was creating, and I think even just coming back and reading a couple of transcripts, especially before this session, it kind of like started falling into place as to why, and I think I’m one of those people who needs to understand why, so I know where I’m going.
But I wanted you to do like an x-ray of me right now because of this infection I have. I made the choice and I called the doctor and I’m getting antibiotics and medication, but I still don’t feel ... there is still something not balanced with me.
ELIAS: You are continuing to be creating of this tension.
Let me express to you that even within this conversation that we have engaged this day, within a moment, you allowed yourself a temporary relaxation, and your breath became less constricted.
And now, within THIS now, you have regained your tension, and you are constricting once again.
LETTY: Okay, so that’s what’s making me feel like this. So it’s really just that I need to get over this, because I’m having major surgery tomorrow, Elias, so I’ll be calling you tomorrow morning!
ELIAS: (Grinning) And I shall be available to you, and offering energy in support.
LETTY: So I need to work on my relaxation exercises.
I express to you, allow yourself the recognition that what you are creating may be changing from moment to moment within your physical reality, as it already is, as we speak. Therefore, acknowledge to yourself the power of your perception, and how it may be physically creating and physically affecting in its strength.
Within one moment, you may be allowing yourself a relaxation, and automatically, physical expressions are affected. Within the very subsequent moment, you may be incorporating that tension, and you reincorporate and re-establish the constriction physically.
What is very influencing of this action presently, within THIS now, is your bouncing, so to speak, back and forth between directing your attention to self and relaxing, and directing your attention outside of yourself ...
LETTY: To the past.
ELIAS: ... to the choices of other individuals and their creations and their expressions of behaviors. It matters not. These are not your expressions.
LETTY: Okay. I will definitely work with that, ‘cause I don’t like this feeling.
ELIAS: (Laughing) Therefore, you have provided yourself with your motivation, have you not?
LETTY: Yes, I have. (Elias chuckles) I am very good at that, Elias!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
LETTY: Oh, you’ve been so wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Quickly, let me ask you, were you also playing with a light on the airplane on the way back?
LETTY: I thought so! It’s kind of like, when I see you now as these little ... the light bothers me and is very noticeable, and I like it because you remind me to pay attention to myself.
ELIAS: And I am aware of your request to be reinforcing you.
LETTY: Yes, thank you. I appreciate it.
ELIAS: (Chuckling) You are quite welcome, Castille.
LETTY: Well, in my culture, I would want to send you a big, big hug!
ELIAS: Ha ha! And I shall express to you, the energy is received!
LETTY: Thank you.
ELIAS: (Chuckling) To you this day, in great encouragement and in tremendous affection, I express I am always with you, and au revoir.
LETTY: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 2:24 PM.
