ďSoft InteractionsĒ

ďInner Earth DimensionĒ

Participants: Mary (Michael) and Wendy (Wynnett).

Elias arrives at 9:00 AM. (Arrival time is 24 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good morning!

WENDY: Good morning, Elias! (Elias chuckles, and Wendy laughs) Iíve been told Iím on my own with a dead guy. It sounds like quite an adventure!

ELIAS: Ha ha ha! And how shall we proceed?

WENDY: Certainly, Iím ready.

ELIAS: Very well!

WENDY: Would you like me to ask you something, or would you like to tell me something?

ELIAS: You may present your inquiries. (Smiling)

WENDY: I think my inquiries are similar to what many people would ask from you these days, and Iím very curious about my essence name and essence family and alignments and all those kinds of things. So Iíd be very happy to start there and see where we go from there.

ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Wynnett, W-Y-N-N-E-T-T (WIN nit); essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Sumari; orientation, soft.

WENDY: Can you tell me what Sumari means, or shall I go onto the website and do some research about that?

ELIAS: You may be inquiring of Michael subsequent to our conversation, and he may be directing to you to what I have offered in description of these essence families.

WENDY: Iím very interested in the essence families. Iím very new to these concepts, and so I donít even know what the qualities of Sumafi are. Elias, are you Sumafi family?


WENDY: So itís something to do with teaching?

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes. Let me express to you, you may familiarize yourself with the qualities of these families in accessing the transcriptions in which I have offered explanations of them.

Also, let me offer to you that the essence family that you are belonging to shall exhibit qualities in your focus individually in a manner which may appear to you to be underlying. It shall consistently be expressed throughout your focus but not as obviously as the qualities of the family that you are aligning with. The alignment family may be recognized more overtly in your expressions throughout your focus.

The essence family that you are belonging to is the family of consciousness that you choose to associate your essence with. Therefore, all of the focuses of attention that you incorporate as an essence in this dimension shall hold the essence family belonging to [of] Sumafi, but each individual focus of attention chooses another family that it shall align itself with for the purpose of experience in that one focus. Therefore, you as an essence offer yourself varied experiences in association with all of the essence families in your allowance of yourself to be expressing these qualities in different focuses of attention.

Now; also be remembering that although you may be belonging to one particular essence family and aligning with another, you do exhibit qualities of all of the essence families. You merely express more of the qualities of the families that you are aligning with and belonging to.

I may also express to you, you may be accessing information concerning orientations, for this also is quite influencing of the individualís experiences within any particular focus. This is the hue in which you perceive all of your reality, and therefore is quite influencing of how you interact with your world and yourself in a particular focus.

WENDY: I certainly recognize soft. What are the other orientations?

ELIAS: There are three orientations associated with this physical dimension: common, soft, and intermediate. I have designated each of these orientations with these terms for they are most closely associated with the expression of these orientations.

Common is, in actuality, the most commonly expressed orientation in any given time framework within your physical dimension. Therefore, in your terms, most individuals focused in manifestations in your dimension are of this particular orientation of common.

Individuals incorporating the orientations of soft and intermediate may be viewed as much less in manifestation within your physical dimension. But I may express to you, each essence choosing to be physically manifest within this physical dimension chooses in agreement with the design of this particular dimension to manifest at the least within three focuses to be offering themselves the experience of each of these orientations.

WENDY: So this time Iíve chosen...

ELIAS: Soft.

WENDY: be soft.

ELIAS: Correct.

WENDY: That leads me to wonder about the orientation of members of my family, for instance my mother. We are challenged ... I suspect we have different orientations. This is my observation, that we are challenged by each otherís orientation. I dare say weíve agreed somewhere along the line that we want to experience the other orientation in this particular way, for some reason. But perhaps you can enlighten me about what it was I chose to experience with my mother and what she chose to experience with me.

ELIAS: Let me express to you, first of all, another explanation concerning orientations. I have offered information previously concerning the movements and the interactions of orientations with each other.

Now; I may say to you, many times individuals within physical focus misinterpret information concerning orientations and confuse the influence of orientations with the influence of beliefs or expressions of focus types. In this, there are many influencing factors, so to speak, which may generate challenge or even difficulty between individuals within physical focus. For the most part, I may express to you, individuals incorporating the orientation of soft experience little conflict and difficulty or challenge in interaction with individuals incorporating the other two orientations, but may experience great challenge, or significant challenge, in interaction with another individual incorporating the same orientation of soft in intimate relationships.

Now; I am qualifying in this explanation that an individual that incorporates the orientation of soft may not experience tremendous challenge interacting with another individual holding the orientation of soft if they are not incorporating an intimate relationship.

Now; the reason that the soft orientation may experience challenge with individuals that are incorporating this same orientation in intimacy is that the interaction, in a manner of speaking, requires the individual to focus their attention upon self. For individuals that incorporate this orientation of soft, in a manner of speaking, are less inclined to be accepting energy projections of other individuals, and in that, lean in the direction of projecting the energy back to the other individual. I am recognizing that this may be confusing to you presently. Let me offer to you an explanation in example.

You may be interactive with an individual that is common, and they may express to you in conversation that they wish to incorporate an activity with you. They wish to be incorporating the action of viewing a particular motion picture with you, and you may express that you are not quite interested in their choice of the particular motion picture. The individual that holds the orientation of common may express to you a compliance and inquire of a suggestion from you in what you term to be compromise, and together you may choose a motion picture that is agreeable to you both. This is one scenario.

You may incorporate the same scenario with an individual that is incorporating the orientation of intermediate. Now; in this, as you express that you wish not to be viewing the motion picture that the intermediate individual has suggested, they may express similarly to the common individual initially and create discussion with you to be discovering a mutual motion picture that you choose to engage together, but they shall also express to you that they shall choose to incorporate the motion picture that they have chosen regardless of whether you choose to engage that activity with them or not.

Now; you may present the same scenario with another soft individual. In this, the individual that is soft is less likely to be engaging discussion with you for they have incorporated their choice, and in this, if you wish not to be incorporating that choice, their response may more likely be, ďVery well, I shall incorporate this motion picture, and perhaps we shall engage interaction with each other in another time framework in which we shall engage a motion picture together that we are in agreement upon.Ē (Wendy laughs)

Now; this may appear hypothetically as quite acceptable, but in realistic terms what shall be the expression of the other soft individual, which is an automatic response, which is highly likely? I shall express to you that the highly likely automatic response of the other soft individual shall be defensiveness and irritation, and they shall express to the other soft individual, ďPardon me! Very well! Go to your motion picture! I wish not to participate anyway!Ē (Wendy is cracking up)

WENDY: So itís possible that the orientation of my mother is, in fact, soft!

ELIAS: (Laughs) I may express to you, my friend, you are correct!

WENDY: Isnít that interesting! (Elias laughs) I have sometimes wondered about that, if the problem between us comes from sharing the same orientation.

ELIAS: I may express to you, individuals incorporating this orientation of soft many times express extremes. This is a natural flow for these individuals. It may not necessarily appear as extreme in expression to you, but in the perceptions of individuals incorporating common or intermediate orientations, viewing individuals incorporating soft orientation, they may interpret or perceive your interactions and behaviors to be consistently extreme.

You are quite familiar and comfortable with your expressions, and therefore your perception may not incorporate an identification of extremes; but if you are viewing your interactions, individuals that are soft do express an ability to be quite accepting IF they are paying attention to self, and if not paying attention to self, may be quite unaccepting.

WENDY: Paying attention to self?

ELIAS: Correct.

WENDY: Iím not sure I understand.

ELIAS: In paying attention to self and not projecting your attention outside of yourself and concentrating your attention upon another individual and their expressions and their choices, you may be quite naturally expressing an ease in acceptance of the other individual. But I may also express to you that in this particular orientation, if you are projecting your attention outside of yourself and holding it upon another individual, you reflect to yourself through other individuals yourself so clearly that there is a very strong automatic expression and response to other individuals in judgment. (Wendy laughs, and Elias chuckles)

WENDY: Iím laughing, because this is certainly my mother and myself! (Elias laughs) I feel irritated by her judgment, but the judgment also is not actually mine.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you, my friend, you in like manner to many, many other individuals that incorporate this orientation of soft quite efficiently present yourself with another individual to be offering yourself the opportunity and the challenge to be focusing your attention upon self. (Laughs)

WENDY: This also explains why things go so well for me in my work, because in my work as a therapist I am very much attending to self and so Iím not projecting; but in my intimate relationships it can be quite different.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you, each orientation, in a manner of speaking, incorporates its own language. Therefore, although it may be quite challenging to be interacting in an intimate relationship with another individual that is soft, it also may be greatly fulfilling, in a manner of speaking, if you are holding your attention upon self, for you do speak the same language and therefore incorporate a tremendous understanding of each otherís perceptions.

WENDY: Interesting. Iím curious now; I want to move to my husband.

ELIAS: Very well.

WENDY: Are you willing to ... my husband, is he willing for me to know his essence name? The name I know him by is either David or Abby. His birth name is David.

ELIAS: Very well. Essence name, Orekk, O-R-E-K-K (OR ick).

WENDY: And his family?

ELIAS: Essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Gramada; orientation, common.

Now; let me express to you, in intimate relationship between an individual of soft and common, you may express and experience some moments and scenarios of confusion for you are not, in a manner of speaking, as I have stated, speaking the same language, and your perceptions or the hue of your perceptions may be different; but you also quite easily allow yourselves to translate each otherís language and therefore this does not present tremendous difficulty. It may be challenging at times, but I may express to you, for the most part you may be easily creating an expression of intimacy with an individual of this orientation.

WENDY: He has a great willingness to communicate. He is very generous in that way. I find it more difficult ... I donít take the same initiative to communicate that he does, but so long as I join him in that spirit, weíre fine.

ELIAS: I am quite understanding. This also is another expression of this orientation of soft. Although you do hold the ability to be quite communicative, individuals that incorporate this orientation many times are not, or they may be if they are, in a manner of speaking, sparked by another individual that is quite communicative.

WENDY: I find sometimes it takes great effort to communicate. I donít communicate spontaneously. When I put my mind to it, when itís important, people tell me I communicate extremely well, clearly, and they say I have a wonderful way with words. But I do find it takes great effort and I have to be very much attending to self and very present and really go deep inside, and then in that place of very clear focus and intention Iím able to communicate in a way that other people appreciate.

ELIAS: And this is quite commonly expressed with individuals holding this orientation. Your perception of your ability is quite different from your expression of your ability. Many individuals that hold this orientation view themselves to not be quite adequately expressive of themselves, but in actuality you are.

WENDY: Elias, can you say something about focuses that my husband and I may have shared before?

ELIAS: I may offer to you, you may be investigating of one that you incorporate together in what you identify now as the physical location of Armenia. In this focus you reverse genders, and you do incorporate another intimate relationship with each other; both incorporating roles of peasantry, but you also experience little conflict in that particular focus. This focus may be of interest to you in your investigation, to view yourself incorporating an ease and not incorporating much struggle throughout the focus, regardless of your physical environment.

I may also offer to you another focus of attention that you share together as siblings within what you now identify in physical location of Brazil.

WENDY: Iíve had a strong feeling that we were siblings. I think we both have had that feeling.

ELIAS: I may express to you, you incorporate several focuses together incorporating relationships. I have offered merely two that you may begin in an investigation of.

WENDY: And were we natives in Brazil, or are we?


WENDY: Yes, very interesting.

Can you say something about how many focuses I have in this dimension, and say anything about particular ones that could be interesting or helpful to me, particularly at this time?

ELIAS: Within this physical dimension, total numbering of focuses 804.

Now; what is the nature of your concern in which you seek to be investigating of particular focuses?

WENDY: Good question! (Elias laughs) Very good question ó I think, in terms of contribution to others. I do have experience, I have skills, and I have a slight intimation of a focus as a woman living in the woods. I call her Tree Woman. I have an intimation of being aware of using magic and ritual in different ways, and Iím wondering how ... itís almost an invitation to accept support or accept information from parts of myself at different times.

It could be my question is not so much which focuses, but how can I open to the support and stimulation and insight, information, whatever, that other focuses have to offer me? And who knows, maybe I have something to offer them, too. I donít know.

ELIAS: I may express to you, first of all, you are all of essence. Therefore, although you view other focuses as other individuals and separated from yourself as individuals and within other time frameworks, they are each an attention of you, just as you yourself in this focus are an attention of yourself. You are all of essence.

Therefore, each focus is an aspect of you and you are an aspect of them and may not be separated from each other, similarly to how you view your physical body, as an example. Look to your physical body and all that you identify as the parts of your physical body. They all incorporate a function, but they are all an expression of the same body consciousness.

Now; your attention in any moment may be directed to a specific area or function of your physical body consciousness. In that moment if you are concentrating your attention singularly upon a finger, if you are noticing, your attention shall not be focused or concerned with any other area of your physical body. This is not to say that you do not continue to incorporate the manifestation of all other areas of your physical body, but your attention is singularly focused upon one finger. Therefore, in relation to your attention, all of the other areas of your physical body appear to not exist, merely that one finger, for this is the direction of your attention.

In similar manner, this is the expression of separation of perception in your physical dimension. All of your other focuses exist within you; therefore they are all influencing, expressed and offering energy, just as you are offering energy to all of these other focuses of attention.

WENDY: Can you help me clarify, where is my attention here in this focus?

ELIAS: Your attention is focused upon this particular focus of attention which you identify as this particular individual, you.

WENDY: And so thatís just me, whatever Iím experiencing.

ELIAS: Correct.

Now; I may express to you, by relaxing your attention, which is quite strongly and singularly focused upon you, you may allow yourself, in a manner of speaking, to step sideways and allow your attention to drift and experience other attentions. They are you, and they are present now wherever you physically manifest yourself, for they are expressed in the illusion of what you identify as time and space.

WENDY: If I have 104 focuses on this dimension, Iím thinking there must be a lot of them somewhere else, because 104 is...

ELIAS: This is within all time frameworks, not merely now ó although they are all now! Ha ha ha ha!

WENDY: Can I ask you about focuses in other dimensions?

ELIAS: I may not offer you a specific number concerning other dimensions, but I may express to you that you do incorporate focuses of attention in many other physical dimensions also.

WENDY: In ways of my perception here and now, I might say some of them are on other planets?


WENDY: (Laughs, and imitates Elias) Yes! (Elias laughs)

Someone told me once I have a soul alignment with Inner Earth. Well, they said I have two: one with Arcturus and one with Inner Earth. Iím really curious about Inner Earth. Can you say anything about Inner Earth?

ELIAS: Let me express to you, this identification is a translation into what you associate with and what is known to you within your dimension.

Now; this is translated in many different manners by different individuals, but in actuality is associated with the same identification. It may be translated slightly differently, but it is a connection, so to speak, with the same manifestation.

Within your dimension, there is incorporated another dimension which may be classified, in a manner of speaking, as another physical dimension occupying the same space arrangement and even the same planet as yourselves. This is a dimension within a dimension, and in this, there are other focuses of yourselves which are manifest within that dimension which may be more closely associated with what you recognize as your planet.

These manifestations are expressed quite differently from yourselves. These manifestations are not quite as solidly physically focused in their manifestation as are you within your physical dimension. They are in actuality manifest more translucently, but similar to yourselves. Their exploration of their dimension is quite different from yourselves, but they do incorporate many similarities in relation to what they create within their dimension, as do you within your dimension. Therefore, it is more easily translated, in your terms, within your associations in your physical dimension and is more easily understood within your translation of it.

This is what you have presented to yourself in offering yourself this information concerning what you term to be Inner Earth, your focuses of attention in association with that physical dimension.

Now; there are other individuals within this forum that have also offered themselves a recognition of that particular physical dimension also, and if you are so choosing you may be interactive with these individuals in sharing your experiences together in association with that dimension.

WENDY: Can I just ask Mary/Michael about that? Or how can I make that connection?

ELIAS: Yes, you may. Michael is aware of the individuals that have allowed themselves this connection also.

WENDY: Wow, thatís wonderful! Elias, I think weíre close to time, and Iím feeling very full and very grateful, and for me it is just a perfect, wonderful place to stop for now.

ELIAS: Very well, my friend. I offer you tremendous encouragement in your exploration, and I shall be offering my energy to you.

WENDY: Thank you.

ELIAS: I anticipate our next meeting, and in great affection to you, au revoir.

WENDY: (Laughs) Ciao!

Elias departs at 9:57 AM.
