“Mergence of Essences to Create a Focus”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Mike (Mikah).
Elias arrives at 1:23 PM. (Arrival time is 27 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning, Mikah!
MIKE: Morning, Elias.
ELIAS: (Chuckling) We meet again so soon!
MIKE: Yes, we do! (Elias laughs) I have one question that’s been nagging me since my session with you in Germany. I’m a bit confused by this painter focus of mine. In that, I have asked you on numerous occasions if there are any other focuses of mine I would be able to look up that had any other kind of notoriety that I’d be able to research or anything. I’ve counted through all my sessions and I’ve asked you five times in the last year similar questions, and all the answers have been no. Then all of a sudden in Germany when I asked you – or it just came out, I didn’t even ask you directly – it turns out I had this painter focus who is more famous than any other focus I have. And I was wondering, why?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! I may express to you, Mikah, I have responded to you quite specifically. In this, I may express to you, be remembering all time is simultaneous, first of all.
Now; I may also express to you that although you associate with time in linear terms, movements of essence are simultaneous; but in association with your recognition of time and also your identification of time in relation to how you incorporate thought processes, many times I choose to be offering information which shall translate through these layers of consciousness in relation to your physical dimension and how you associate in relation to its design incorporating time.
In this, let me express to you, Mikah, I may be offering information within any time framework that may be confusing to any of you within that time framework, for your objective understanding, associations, beliefs and what you know in the design of your physical dimension shall be confusing to you, for you do associate with linear time in conjunction with experience. Therefore, as I recognize individuals’ assimilation of information in conjunction with linear time and the individual’s movements in association with their assimilation of the information that I am offering to you each, I choose time frameworks in which I shall offer certain expressions of information.
Within the area of consciousness that I focus my attention, or that I occupy, all of these probabilities that you inquire of are already actualized. They are already occurring. Those that have occurred past, those that are what you associate to be future, they are all occurring presently. But within your recognition of time, they may be associated as past or future.
Within each moment that any individual is offering an inquiry to myself, I shall respond to them, in relation to their linear time framework, a translation of activity or associations that are occurring within their association of the now. Are you following thus far?
ELIAS: Therefore, there are some actions and probabilities, movements, that within your association of movement in conjunction with linear time may not translate into the design of your reality within a particular moment, for it may be associated in your reality as a future probability.
Once again, this is the reason that I am continuously reiterating and reinforcing in this information that there are no absolutes. But in the design of what is familiar to you within your physical dimension, you do associate MANY expressions as absolutes.
As an example, many individuals express the inquiry to myself, “How many focuses of attention do I incorporate in this physical dimension?” In the moment, I offer a physical number. This is NOT an absolute. It may or may not fluctuate, dependent upon the individual essence and its activity. This may incorporate many different actions: fragmentation, mergences, other essences that may choose to be interactive and in mergence with any particular essence and creating other focuses in that moment of mergence. There are many different avenues of movement that are incorporated within consciousness. But in translating those movements and actions in relation to numberless essences and within the expression of all of consciousness, there are many fluctuations that occur.
In this, you have created within your essence – as expressed by this particular focus of attention that you recognize as you – a strongly expressed desire to be associated with another focus of attention that you may objectively investigate and explore in relation to your focus of attention presently. This desire has been moving in increasing intensity within a time framework of your linear design in which you move and create your reality in association to your physical dimension.
Now; you are a focus of attention but you are also essence, and all other focuses of attention of essence are present within you. You merely FOCUS your attention in one direction to the objective exclusion of all others, for the most part. But just as I have expressed previously with other individuals, what creates the action of fragmentation is an expression of desire of a particular quality of essence.
Now; desire of a particular quality of essence may also generate other actions, not merely fragmentation. This is not an action in which a piece of essence removes itself from any particular essence to create a new essence in the action of fragmentation; it is an expressed desire of a quality of essence which, figuratively speaking, gives birth, in your terms, to a new expression which becomes the new essence. Be remembering, I am speaking figuratively. For once again, these are not absolutes, and in this I am offering a translation into your language and what you know and understand in relation to the design of your physical reality.
In this, you as a focus of attention are also a quality of essence and you express desires. These desires are not hidden from you, for they do, in a manner of speaking, show themselves or reflect objectively in different manners – inspirations, motivations, that which you objectively define as desires or wants. They may not appear objectively in a type of clarity in which you recognize the movement that you are creating, but you do hold a recognition and an understanding of your desires through what you present to yourself.
In this, you have been for a time framework consistently expressing a particular desire, and in this desire you also have been expressing that desire in alignment with your individual focus intent. In that, you have generated a movement of energy which, in a manner of speaking, has projected a beacon, so to speak, which other essences recognize.
Now; in response to your projection of energy in desire, the essence that, in your terms, focused attention in the manifestation of this individual which you recognize as a painter has been responsive to your expression of desire. In that responsiveness, you have created a mergence of essences. This is not the same action as an observing essence within a particular focus.
This action has created the fruition of the expressed desire, in which you have allowed yourself as essence to merge with certain qualities of another essence, and therefore have focused your attention in one particular specific direction which is the manifestation of this particular individual. Therefore you incorporate this focus, for you have allowed yourself a mergence with a particular quality of essence, and therefore offer yourself this focus also.
This is not a relinquishment of the other essence or acquiring of your essence of a particular focus, for consciousness does not move in this manner. You as focuses of attention are not pawns or objects that may be moved in relation to the will of essence as some entity that is greater than yourselves; and it is also not an action in which another essence may assume any focus of any other essence, for this type of action would be intrusive, and as I have expressed many times previously, there are no “walk-ins” and no other essence assumes any focus of another essence, so this is not the action that has occurred. But what has translated in this time framework, within your objective recognition of time, is that you have allowed a mergence. Therefore, you ARE the other essence and the other essence is you.
MIKE: Hmm. So that focus was a mergence, then. It wasn’t just a singular essence.
MIKE: Do I know the other essence? I mean objectively now, as a focus?
ELIAS: In similar manner to the creation of some fragmentations, the fragmented essence is an expression born of mergences of certain qualities of combined essences. This focus is a creation of the mergence of essences.
MIKE: So at what point ... let me grasp for my thoughts. So if this is a mergence, there is not really one essence that’s expressing more overtly than the other because they’re both the same entity at that point.
ELIAS: Correct! You are correct. For that QUALITY which is being expressed in desire is, figuratively speaking, creating what may almost be identified as another entity in itself as it is a combination of different essences, which the combination in mergence does not distinguish the singularity of identity that you associate with individual essences.
MIKE: Now, you’re saying that this mergence created this focus. So that means that for the entirety of the focus of that individual, it was this entity that was created through the mergence?
ELIAS: Yes. This is not a shared focus. This is not an observing focus. It also is not an action of fragmentation. It is a merging or combining of more than one essence which generates a focus of attention.
MIKE: Does this add to my numbering of focuses?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes.
MIKE: So, what, now I have 732? (Elias chuckles)
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes! (Mike laughs) There are many, many movements and actions, my friend, that are continuously occurring within consciousness that all essences are participating within that create many different variables and variations of expression. And once again I may express to you, this is the reason that I continue to express to you all that there are no absolutes. For you lock yourselves into thought processes and beliefs that express to you quite frequently the solidity of absolutes, and this contributes to your confusion in objective understanding.
This also, Mikah, is an expression that I choose not to be offering tremendous volumes of information, concerning actions and movements of consciousness that may be viewed as outside of your physical dimension and reality. For you occupy your attentions in this physical reality, and you associate your understanding with the design of this physical reality.
Other movements of consciousness may be quite confusing within the translation of your objective associations and understanding, and also I may express to you, for the most part it matters not, for it is not necessarily relevant to what you create within your physical reality – not yet, for you have not completed, so to speak, the insertion of your shift in consciousness. Even within the insertion of your shift in consciousness, there are countless movements and actions of consciousness that may continue to be irrelevant to the design of your physical dimension.
MIKE: I have a couple more questions, but I’m almost out of time. Well, I’m not out of time; the session is out of time. Would Juan, would his essence family be ... because I’m sure there are no absolutes, but just as this is my impression, is he Sumafi/Sumari?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
MIKE: The second thing is how many focuses, if counting these sorts, this action that we talked about today, how many focuses would I have in total including ones as a focus of Mikah including a mergence?
ELIAS: I may express to you quite genuinely, there is no calculation for this type of action.
MIKE: Okay, all right. I’ll buy it.
ELIAS: These types of actions occur quite frequently, my friend, in many different manners and capacities, and therefore within consciousness I may not offer to you an actual count.
MIKE: Would you be willing to offer me the name, the tone, of the mergence that occurred with that focus?
ELIAS: The tone of the mergence – which is not another essence – very well: Michi (MIH shee).
MIKE: Mishi, M-I-S-H-I?
MIKE: I have one more question. The portrait of the focus that I have that was done by Diego Rivera, is my focus’ name Irene Phillips Olmedo? (Pause)
MIKE: I guess that’s it for the day.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend.
MIKE: Thank you very much.
ELIAS: I shall be anticipating our next meeting. I express to you, as always, tremendous affection and encouragement. We shall meet again, my friend.
MIKE: I hope so! (Elias laughs)
ELIAS: To you this day, au revoir.
Elias departs at 1:58 PM.
