The documents in this part of the site are an introduction to Elias and the shift in consciousness.

To get in touch with the topic of this site, please read the introduction and the two Elias sessions below. These have been carefully selected from over 1000 sessions which are currently available and should be well suited for the purpose of giving an introduction.

So the topics below will give you a good overview of what the site is about and you should feel quite easily if you are interested in the style and content of the Elias material.

Who and what is Elias?

With this text I'd like to present a bit of explanation about who or what Elias is. It is my intent to provide an overview which will be meaningful while at the same time I want it to be presented with the least amount of possible distortion and with the least possible lending of energy to existing spiritual and new age belief systems.

To achieve this intent, I am avoiding new-age or religious terms here and will instead stick with Elias terms as far as possible, so please bear with me if I am using unfamiliar terms. But you will also find the meaning of many terms in the dictionary on this site and links in the text below will open the description for that word from the dictionary in a new browser window.

Elias? Who's that??

If you already know material from sources like Seth (Jane Roberts), Abraham (Esther Hicks), Bashar (Darryl Anka) and others you will probably have an idea about the phenomen termed channeling. If you've never heard of that word, it may be a good idea to detour and see to our dictionary has to say about channeling.

However, assuming that you now are familiar with that word, in Elias' own terms, he is an essence which is currently not focused in physical reality. His teaching is delivered through an energy exchange with Mary Ennis and aims at assisting people in shifting.

ELIAS: I am Elias. I am an energy personality essence. I occupy an area of consciousness which shall be known to you henceforth as Regional Area 4. In this realm, I occupy a position of teaching. I am in conjunction with many other essences which are also in the capacity of teaching. I speak to you in response to you all in your questioning of this shift in consciousness, which is occurring upon your planet within this time framework in this present now, in which you are all involved. (Session #270)

What does essence and focus mean?

Essence is energy expression in all of consciousness. Essence is basically what is at the core of human life, an inviolatile eternally valid action in consciousness. A human life as we know it, is essence focusing part of it's infinitely wide attention into pyhsical reality. So you dear reader are a focus of your essence. There's no focus without essence, but not all essence is focused in this particular pyhsical dimension.

What is the teaching about?

I a few words, it is about the relationship between every individual and themselves and the recognition of the tremendous power that lies within each of us and also the recognition and neutralization of that which hinders us to allow it to unfold.

Elias has presented the idea of the shift in consciousness. The core element of the shift is about self discovery. According to Elias, this is a world wide process which affects every individual on our planet and he describes it it as having the potential to be tremendously liberating to those who understand it, while at the same time having also great potential for conflict and trauma for those who don't. His intent is to assist those who feel attracted to the material and who are interested in shifting in an effective manner and with the least amount of conflict and trauma.

To achieve this end, Elias presents various core concepts like acceptance, attention to self, freedom of expression, noticing, etc.. These are closely tied into each other and presented in the context of a wider world view (one that goes beyond physics and religion). However, it is my understanding that this world view is mainly a frame of reference in which his ideas about the individual can unfold themselves in a meaningful context.

Eventually, what it all boils down to, is to liberate and empower the individual. It is about discovery how reality is created, what may be limiting in those creations and to help the individual to act and express more of him- or herself in a conscious manner.

ELIAS: I say to you, always rely upon self. Always look to self. Do not be allowing yourself to be told what is right or true, for you shall know within you.

I have expressed many times within this forum and these individuals, I do not present myself before you that you may “follow”. I offer helpfulness that you will recognize as ringing true.

And, if information is not ringing true within you, trust yourself; for you shall know.

If Elias is currently not focused through a pyhsical body, how does the message arrive here?

The exchange happens through an individual named Mary Ennis. Mary is a normal human like you and me, but she has the ability to go into trance and in that trace state create an exchange between herself (focus), her essence and the essence of Elias. In practical terms this means that in trance she speaks for Elias. These occurrences are called sessions. The sessions are held for individuals (via phone or in person) or groups and are recorded on videotape and eventually transcribed.

The transcripts are currently published on two internet sites ( and, see links section of this website) and also distributed through a mailing list.

To get an idea of the phenomen, watch the video clip on this site.

Why don't I just say he's a soul, higher spirit or ascended master?

I don't do that because he is not. I understand that you may be tempted to replace the word essence by one which you are familiar with from a new age or religious context, but I advise not to do that, or at least only initially, because part of the Elias material is about understanding the connection between ideas or beliefs and specific words.

And most new age terms carry a huge bag of beliefs. Among them is the concept of reincarnation, the existence of higher and lower planes and that we're on some sort of a lowly place to teach us things.

ELIAS: What is your purpose within this dimension? Your purpose is to be manifesting for the experience of physical focus within a dimension that is focused upon the sexual and emotional aspects of physical experience. Experience is your purpose.

(Grinning) You have no mission. You have no method. You have no process. You are not in school. You are not upon a lower plane, and there are no masters that are above you that are guiding you along your path, for you have no path! You merely hold experience. (Session 284)

As you see in the above quote, many new age ideas are nothing that I want to lend energy to as they are quite far from the Elias material.

Does it work?

It sure works for me and others which I know. But I honestly don't know if it will be meaningful to you in any way shape or form, and I will be the last person on the planet to urge you to explore it, because if this material will serve you, I'm sure that you will draw yourself towards it all by yourselves.

ELIAS: This information is presented to individuals that draw themselves to it for it speaks to them. I d not express to ANY individual, […] that this is the ONLY information or that this information is absolutely unequivocally “right.” It is presented merely for your clarity, for your understanding, for it speaks to you.


However, I am working with the material since Summer 2004. I've read hundreds of transcripts and had six phone sessions so far. The effect on my life has been most profound. Although I have worked with the Seth material for many years, the Elias' material had a huge impact on my life. It is most useful and practical and for me it has changed my life beyond description.

If any of this will be true for you too, you will need to find out on your own. If it is the case, I'm sure you will notice that you feel an interest or pull towards a deeper exploration of the material. To do this, visit the link section here (check the Elias related links, especially Paul Helfrich's site) and/or log on to our forum here.

The Shift in Consciousness

With this introduction I am assuming that you are familar with who Elias is and that you probably have read my introduction about Elias.

In order to describe what the shift is I will start with a few quotes from Elias session #160 (March 1997) where he explains what he means by his term of shift.

Consciousness connected with physical focus moves through seasons, just as your planet holds seasons in nature. These seasons within consciousness are slightly different, for they endure for much greater time frameworks. You now enter a new season of consciousness within the creation of your shift.

More flowers shall not bloom upon your planet as your shift is accomplished. No messiah shall be leading you to a promised land. It shall rain upon your planet equally to the rain present. You shall continue to manifest natural occurrences as do you now, but you shall understand what you do.

Within the action of this shift also, in addition to your recognition of your own essence and your own focuses, you shall also eliminate much conflict, for it is unnecessary to be creating conflict if you are not concerned with what is outside of you. If your concern centers within and upon the elements of essence, you shall be manifesting this and you shall not necessarily be manifesting what you now view to be hatefulness.

While the shift may sound like a global process, I would like to point out that shifting is first and foremost an individual process. Individuals are what creates the collective mass, so in a way the shift works bottom up.

It may not sound like it, but it is a hands on practical every day process, which starts with the indivdual, is all about the individual and ends with the individual.

Maybe the easiest way to get an idea of shifting is to requote a part of one of the above in a shorter form:

… for it is unnecessary to be creating conflict if you are not concerned with what is outside of you.

And obviously, although Elias says that the post shift world won't be a promised land and utopia, a world where it is unnecessary for individuals to create conflict may be quite a desireable place to live. And I am not only taking about world scale events like war, but the daily nitty gritty.

Following and implementing the material has been most beneficial for my personal life and has indeed greatly reduced the potential for conflict in many forms. Attention to self as described above is one of the key teachings also plays a major role in interactions on the online forum on this site.

So for a start I want to present the idea, that the shift is about shifting our attention from the outside world and from others to ourselves and what we really are. It is not easy because it is a highly unfamiliar action, but from my own experience I can say that it is very rewarding in many different ways, two of which are a tremendous increase in genuine personal freedom and a dramatically lessened potential for conflict.

All this works through a few core concepts. Two of the big words in all the teaching are acceptance and belief. These may sound like two little inconspicious words, but no matter what the topic is, with Elias eventually it boils down to those two words and they have far reaching implications. If you want true freedom and wider awareness, those words are your tools.

The base element of this shift in consciousness is to be identifying, recognizing, and addressing to the belief systems that you hold and to be accepting of these belief systems – not eliminating, not altering, not changing, but to be accepting of these belief systems, which therefore renders these belief systems neutralized, which shall be creating of this new establishment in consciousness; for if you are not affected by those belief systems that you hold, you allow yourselves the opportunity to open to your awareness and you allow yourselves to view more of your reality. (Session #284)

Should you now feel inclined to explore this material further, please note Strange Times session in the introduction, as it is almost exclusively about the shift.

And of course it shall be much fun to share and exchange ideas and put this all into practice here or on the online forum with those of you out there who are so choosing.

Injoy …


Elias Session #270: "An Introduction and an Overview"

Session #270:
"An Introduction and an Overview"

Thursday, March 19, 1998
Participants: Mary (Michael), Forrest (Ellius), and six new participants: Nathan (Robertt), Diane (Juan), Richard (Zephel), Laura (Lynya), Robert (Pierre), and Erik (Mosten).
Vic's note: This is the first group session held in Vermont. I think the audience consists mostly of young people.
Elias arrives at 6:53 PM. (Time was twenty-five seconds)

ELIAS: Good evening. (Smiling)

GROUP: (Hesitantly) Good evening.

ELIAS: Greetings to all our young Sumafis present! This evening I shall present myself in introduction to you all, and I shall introduce yourselves to you also.

I am Elias. I am an energy personality essence. I occupy an area of consciousness which shall be known to you henceforth as Regional Area 4. In this realm, I occupy a position of teaching. I am in conjunction with many other essences which are also in the capacity of teaching. I speak to you in response to you all in your questioning of this shift in consciousness, which is occurring upon your planet within this time framework in this present now, in which you are all involved.

I shall offer to you also that I am belonging to the family of consciousness known as the Sumafi, to which all of you present within this forum within this present now also are belonging to. Within physical focus, you also align with another family of consciousness. There are nine families of consciousness which are connected with this particular physical dimension, which in conjunction with yourselves are creating of this particular reality and orchestrate the manifestation of this particular dimension. These families of consciousness are relative to this dimension. They are not orchestrating of other physical dimensions and are not particularly relative to all of consciousness, although they are participants in all of consciousness, as consciousness may not be separated in any manner. (Pause, smiling at the group)

You hold wonderings. You look to your present now and you hold questionings of validity of purpose, of missions, (grinning) of action. Within this present now, you are experiencing what I have termed to be a shift in consciousness. You are moving out of your religious era and moving into a new reality which you are creating.

There are many aspects of this shift in consciousness and many actions which are associated with this shift. One of the basic elements of this shift in consciousness is to be accepting of your belief systems and rendering them neutralized – NOT eliminating these belief systems but rendering them neutralized – which shall enable you to expand within your objective awareness, and this shall expand your abilities in creativity futurely. The action of this shift holds many dynamics that you are already beginning to experience within your objective awareness. I shall clarify.

Your objective awareness is that which occupies your attention within your waking state. Your subjective awareness is that awareness which is a part of you, which moves in harmony to your objective awareness and includes your dream state and all other states of consciousness associated with this reality; not your waking state. These two states of consciousness I shall refer to many times. They also, as I have stated, are elements of you. They are inseparable. They are also not at odds with each other. You are not manipulated by some element which you term to be "unconscious." There is no unconscious. This suggests non-conscious, and there is no non-conscious. There is merely the area of your individual oubliettes, your places of forgetting, which is your objective awareness. Your subjective awareness is that which holds the remembrance, which you are moving into the position of merging into your objective awareness. This also is an element of this shift in consciousness.

Aspects of this shift in consciousness in overview:

This shift in consciousness is now, but in objective terminology shall be completed or entirely accomplished within the third quarter of your coming century. You have already moved beyond your midpoint within the action of this shift in consciousness, which was initiated in your physical time framework at the beginning of this particular century. Nearing the midpoint of your coming century, many elements shall be occurring that shall be definitive in turning your reality into an entirely new type of reality. That which you view as reality presently shall no longer exist.

As to your physical forms, they shall continue as they are. As to your belief systems, you shall continue to hold belief systems, for these are a part of the design of this reality. As to the affectingness of these belief systems, they shall be rendered neutral. As to your physical societies, they shall be different. They shall be altered. Your approach to reality within this shift shall be altered dramatically, for your awareness shall be increased to the point of the inclusion of the remembrance of essence, which shall allow you greater freedom and mobility within this physical dimension.

This shift in consciousness is limited to this particular dimension. It is not a shift in consciousness which encompasses other dimensions or other physical dimensions, but you shall hold the ability, as you hold presently if you are choosing to be engaging of this ability, to access other realities at will. Their awareness of your interaction shall not be objective to them, but you shall hold an objective awareness of your interaction. Example: You wish to engage another physical reality; extraterrestrials. You wish to view another physical reality which is manifest. You may, by merely stepping sideways, engage this action. It shall be as effortless as moving from one room to another. You wish to engage an individual that has disengaged physical focus. You shall hold the ability to be in active communication and interaction with another focus .. in non-physical communication. Your abilities for mobility through consciousness shall exceed any known element that you hold presently.

And how shall you accomplish this action of this shift? It has already begun. You are already participants. I have greeted you in expressing welcome to the young Sumafis, and I have expressed to you that in addition to introduction of myself, I shall introduce you to yourselves.

You presently are embarking upon a new quest within consciousness. You stand now upon the eve before the dawn of the realization of your creativity. Let me offer to you that within your mythology, you express the story of Saint George slaying the dragon to create safe passage and ease for the masses, eliminating the threat of harmfulness. Within imagery, this is the symbol that you may present to yourselves in your action in compliance with this shift in consciousness. You are those which embark upon this quest to be ushering in this shift with the least amount of trauma. Much energy has been lent throughout your millennium to the prophecies and the predictions of trauma and of destruction, which you approach now your time framework marker, the dawn of these predictions. They are probabilities, but they are not actualized within this particular reality yet. Therefore, you hold the ability to actualize different probabilities.

The awareness within your planet is growing. You stand upon the threshold of the dawn which shall insert different probabilities into your officially accepted reality, not those probabilities which have been prophesied. These probabilities are the remnants of the religious era, which has been in acting capacity for much of your time framework; a millennium. You have come to the point that this particular creation in consciousness in this reality no longer serves you. Therefore, it is also confining of your creativity, and you have chosen to be eliminating of this and moving into a new action of creativity. In this movement, you hold a recognition of the unnecessary-ness (grinning) of trauma and destruction within the creation of a new era.

You have already felt your birth pains within this century. It is unnecessary to be creating of negativity, in your terms. In this, I offer information of belief systems that shall allow you the awareness to recognize the hold of these belief systems and the effects that they are influencing upon you all. In the recognition of these belief systems, you may also attend to these belief systems.

Within physical focus, your attention is directed very precisely. You are a lens. Visualize a camera with hundreds of lenses. This camera shall be essence. You are a lens of this camera. All of these lenses are occurring simultaneously, and are also all influencing and lending energy to you within the action of the accomplishment of this shift presently. You are also influencing of all of these other lenses, or focuses.

I define what you term to be a lifetime as a focus, for lifetime is encompassing. In this, your lifetime is the sum of all of your focuses within this particular physical dimension. Each segment is a focus. They do not occur linearly. You do not move into birth, move through a focus, die, and remanifest into another focus. This is your perception of your linear time framework, but it is relative only to physical focus. It is how you have designed this particular reality. It is not reality in other areas of consciousness or other physical dimensions beyond this particular dimension. It is a perception, although the element of time holds its own integrity. Therefore, I shall not express to you that time itself is not an entity, for it is in a manner of speaking, but it does not appear in the same manner that you view it within this particular dimension. Therefore, when you view other focuses of yourself, they are occurring presently. They are not past; they are not future. We may be referring to other focuses for your understanding as future or past, merely for the reason that this is how your thought processes operate within physical focus, but be remembering that all of your focuses are simultaneous.

You may access ANY of these focuses at will. You hold the ability. This also is an element of the action of this shift. More easily and more effortlessly presently may individuals access ANY of their focuses, merely through the desire and concentration upon another focus. You may access this through meditation. You may access this through what you term to be altered states of consciousness. You may engage your action of hypnosis and this shall allow you to facilitate the action. These are all merely different actions that allow you a relaxing of your attention, which is extremely focused in this particular physical focus. This is not a negative! Although you hold the desire to be accessing many different experiences, you have purposefully created this reality that each developmental focus, which is in your terms a lifetime, focuses its attention so singularly that it affords you the purity of experience.

The reason you are manifest within this dimension – your purpose, your mission, your reason – is to experience. You are NOT manifest within this dimension in a school. You are NOT manifest in this dimension to be accomplishing of great deeds, although you may be choosing to be experiencing this. You ARE manifest within this dimension, and ANY physical dimension, merely to experience the purity and qualities of physical action.

Within this particular dimension, you have created this reality based upon the exploration of two basic elements of physical focus; sexuality and emotion. You experience both of these elements intensely. All of your creations within this particular dimension reflect these basic elements. You may even look to a rock, and this stone shall invoke within you a feeling of male or female and an emotion if you are so tuning into it, for ALL of your reality reflects these elements in this particular dimension.

In this also, I shall offer to you a comment which shall not be entirely well-received by some individuals, but it is your creation of your reality. Therefore, it is reality in this particular dimension. You manifest with the agreement of manifestation at the very least three times, three focuses within this particular dimension. This is the agreement that you adhere to in choosing to manifest within this particular experience. You manifest once female, once male, once in what I express to be "other," which shall be interpreted as what you view to be homosexual. All three of these experiences are the agreement that you engage in engaging this reality, for the experience of the sexual aspect of this particular dimension. This is not to say that you must be creating of a focus which holds an extended time framework. You may be experiencing female for one year [or] five minutes and you may disengage, or you may be experiencing male for one hundred of your years. You may be experiencing homosexual five hundred focuses, male one, female three. Any combination is acceptable. The only stipulation within this dimension is that you experience three different orientations, for this is the design of this particular physical focus.

They are different. Male is not female; female is not male; homosexual is completely a different orientation. Physically you may appear the same or similar, but the orientation within consciousness is completely different, just as the male orientation is one and the female orientation is another and they are not the same. Although within your present era you view yourselves to be closer and you wish yourselves to be the same and you attempt to place yourselves in the same roles, you are intrinsically different. If this were not so, you would not be creating of differences in sexuality. You would be creating no sex. There are physical dimensions in existence presently which hold no sexual orientation. Yours is not one.

In this, I express to you to be exploring the fullness of your orientation and of your creation, the wonderment of what you have chosen to manifest within, as opposed to the denial of the orientation that you choose and the movement into false mergence of the other orientation. Do not confuse yourselves in expressing that you are all the same. You are NOT all the same. Within consciousness, the elements of consciousness are the same, but they are not; for each element of consciousness holds its own uniqueness. Even within essence you hold your own tone, which is unique to you and not the same as other essences. The qualities may be the same, but the tone is different. You each hold your own individual tone in essence, which is the whole of you, the sum of all of your focuses, not merely within this particular physical dimension but all other dimensions and all areas of consciousness.

As to your action within this shift in consciousness, you draw yourselves to this forum to acquire information. In this I shall be offering of information as we continue, and I shall be allowing of your questioning. Your intent within this focus includes an aspect of lending energy to the action of this shift and the accomplishment of the insertion of probabilities into this particular reality outside of the probabilities of trauma. Therefore, your lending action is to be offering energy to be lessening the trauma in the action of this shift. Many individuals shall be experiencing trauma in relation to this shift in consciousness. They shall experience much less trauma as they are holding information to be explaining to them what they are experiencing. There be your mission … although you hold no mission! (Smiling)

If so choosing, upon return from our break I shall offer essence names to you each if you are desiring, and then you may be asking your questions. We shall break.

RESUME 7:44 PM (Time was five seconds)

ELIAS: Continuing. You may make your inquiries if you are so choosing.

NATHAN: I'll start. Elias, I'd like to discuss some more on the essence families and how we may all relate as far as this Sumafi family. Could you go into that a little further? And maybe – this is a different question – but maybe the aspect of birth visions, as in the essence families who take on similar visions and come into the physical realm, as you said, with similar intentions or similar views?

ELIAS: Let me present an overview of your physical reality within this dimension.

At its inception, nine essence families organized, so to speak, to be creating of this particular dimensional reality. These essence families are comprised of many essences of like intent within each family. These essences initially were known as Dream Walkers; partially physically focused, but not entirely. Now, also in relation to these Dream Walkers, they are interactive with you continually, and presently also. They have not chosen to be entirely physically manifest throughout the entirety of the existence of this particular dimension. Therefore, they may be interactive with you and even appear to you, in relation to the essence family that you are belonging to. In clarification of this, I may also suggest to you that I have offered much information previously in relation to this subject matter, but briefly I shall offer you a slight explanation.

Each essence family holds a different intent, which are all complementary to each other. In this, the Dream Walkers interact in conjunction to the essence families in respective manners. You are belonging the essence family of Sumafi, as are these other individuals present within this forum. Therefore, you draw yourself to the action of the engagement of this energy exchange. The essence family of Sumafi chooses interaction with physical focus in this particular manner of energy exchange, for it affords the least amount of distortion. At times, other essence families may engage this particular type of energy exchange, but it is not their usual, in your terms, expression of communication.

In example, the Milumet family; these are the holders of the remembrance; the spiritualists. The engagement of the Dream Walkers with individuals physically focused belonging to the Milumet family shall be in the vein of dream interaction and visions. They shall interact with elements of your reality and communicate with these elements in a manner that you shall not. They may engage a tree or a creature and communicate with this tree or creature, and receive information in the same manner that you receive information from this essence. Each family holds a different interaction within communication to those belonging to the respective families in physical focus.

As I have stated, you also in entering physical focus align with another essence family. Within essence, you belong to one essence family. Within manifestation of physical focus, you choose to be aligning within that particular focus with any of the other essence families. Example: Michael is belonging to the essence family of Sumafi. Within this particular focus, he is aligned with Sumari; the creators, the artists, the pot-stirrers. Therefore, the objective expression within the particular focus is more obviously viewed as that of the Sumari. The underlying intent is that of the Sumafi. In this you may view qualities of both, but the more objective qualities which are evidenced are those which manifest in the alignment.

As to your question of entering focus, you enter a physical focus with a pool of probabilities. These probabilities are those potentialities that define your intent. But make no mistake – your probabilities do not lie before you. They are created within the moment. Therefore, there is merely the potentiality for the probabilities, not the actuality of the probabilities upon entering the focus. In like manner – very figuratively – to yourself holding a thought, you may hold the thought, but the thought is not automatically actualized. You have not implemented the thought, although you hold the potential to implement the thought and be creating an actuality of this thought, but until it is actualized it is a potentiality. In this same manner, you enter a physical focus with a pool of probabilities which are potentialities and not actualities. In this manner, you hold the freedom of choice to be altering of any probabilities within every moment.

You also are not restricted to your individual pool of probabilities in entering a physical focus. You hold the ability to extend outside of your individual pool of probabilities and pull probabilities into your pool, which shall be altering entirely of your focus. This action is not common, but it may be accomplished. Not many individuals within physical focus choose to be pulling outside of their individual pools of probabilities, but it does occur, in which case you shall view within those individuals manifestations, what you may term to be drastic alterations of their particular focus. It shall move in entirely different directions than its original direction.

In regard to the interaction of essence family Dream Walkers with you in physical focus, the answer to your question is yes, they do interact. I am interacting with you. Individuals within the Vold family audibly hear communication from other essences, which allows them information. Individuals within the Ilda family view and interact with aspects of essence which are related to other realities. This be their communication. They image these interactions within the influence of their belief systems, but their interaction is no less reality. Individuals belonging to the Ilda family may be experiencing interaction with extraterrestrials. Within the confines of their belief systems they image these interactions as being "little gray squashy guys," although they are not, but this be your explanation to yourselves and the image that you create to offer an objective communication. In actuality, they are not little gray squashy guys! (Humorously, and finally, a whispered chuckle out of the audience) They are an entity entirely foreign to your recognition, but in entering into your physical dimension and interacting with you, you image this particular form, among other forms also. This is your creation of a form that is recognizable and acceptable to you, that you may understand. You interact with elements of essence that are outside of this reality quite often. You merely do not recognize your interaction.

Express to me any experiences that you hold that your vision becomes distorted, that your hearing becomes distorted; ear ringing! Individuals describe an action of lightening bolts or twinkling lights within their vision that block their physical vision temporarily. This is an action of yourselves viewing through your own physical vision or hearing through your own physical auditory systems elements of essence which are not of this dimension. In movement into another dimension, this is the officially accepted reality and the communication or the visual – how they see through your eyes – and you offer this experience to yourselves in conjunction with the action of this shift, as you are opening your consciousness presently and allowing more aspects of essence to bleed through into your objective awareness, for all of these aspects ARE aspects of your essence. In meeting what you view to be an extraterrestrial, you are meeting yourself, which is focused within another physical dimension. It is not foreign from you. It is an element of you.

NATHAN: That brings me to my next question. Brattleboro seems to be some kind of focal point, as far as maybe some sort of vortex of energies….

ELIAS: Ah, vortexes! (Grinning)

NATHAN: We all have similar backgrounds or things that we've done in the past, and here we are now together, and we have these talks. We question, why are we here now in this present point? Basically my question is, is Brattleboro some kind of drawing ground? Is it a point where people come for learning or come to meet people of the same consciousness?

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Let me express to you that in actuality, there are energy deposits upon your planet which YOU HAVE CREATED. They are NOT intrinsic to the actual physical location. They are deposits of energy, which the individual focuses have placed energy into these areas. You have reversed the explanation. You express that the place draws you with its energy. No. YOU draw to a place in communication in consciousness, in interaction in consciousness, drawing yourself to like spirit, so to speak, and subsequently YOU deposit energy in this particular physical location which shall be recognizable to other individuals of like kind. In this, YOU are the instrument that is creating of the situation and the draw of energy, and as you each draw together in like intent, which you have in agreement of probabilities, you each add elements of your energy to the physical location. It is a marker, and this is recognizable to other individuals as they draw to the same physical location, and the more individuals that draw to the physical location, the more energy that is deposited, which creates your idea or your belief system of your vortex. It is YOUR energy, not your planet's energy. (Pause)

ROBERT: I'd like to talk more about neutralizing belief systems, consciously working on that.

ELIAS: Ah! This be a difficult area, I shall be warning you!

Initially, you need be identifying the belief systems. ALL that you move through in physical focus is influenced by a belief system. Every action that you engage is influenced by a belief system. Every thought is influenced by a belief system. This is how you have created your reality. You walk a certain way, in relation to your belief systems. You sleep in a certain manner, in relation to your belief systems. You function at certain time periods throughout your day. You dress in certain fashions. You speak in certain fashions. You consume in certain fashions. You consume certain elements. I shall express to you that you may be consuming of rocks and your physical form shall function, but you hold belief systems that you must be nourishing your physical form with certain materials. Your belief systems influence EVERY ACTION that you engage within physical focus.

In accepting a belief system, you must first identify the belief system. In identifying the belief system, then you enter into … (pause, grinning) the fun element, (laughter) which is identifying all of the other belief systems which are attached to the initial belief system and all of the affectingness of each of these elements. As you identify to yourself the affectingness of all of the elements and aspects of each belief system, and as you are accepting of yourself, which is key to this process, and trusting of yourself and moving outside of duplicity, you may begin to be accepting of the belief system.

I have offered an example of the acceptance of a belief system in a very elementary form. You all hold a belief system that you must be adorning yourselves with apparel. You do not move throughout your physical focus merely within your encasement of your skin. This is a belief system. In accepting a belief system, you continue to hold an opinion, a choice, of whether you choose to be complying with the belief system or not, but the belief system is not affecting you.

(Firmly) The acceptance of a belief system is the entire lack of judgment connected with the particular belief system in any area.

Therefore, you hold the belief system that you are [must be] wearing clothing. The individuals within this forum choose not to hold this belief system. Therefore, they shall not be wearing clothing and this shall be acceptable to you, and it shall be not affecting and it shall matter not if they are choosing to be wearing clothing or not wearing clothing, and you shall hold no value judgment upon their choice. It shall not be affecting.
Now; this be a very simplified example. When you are moving into areas of strongly held belief systems, you may find much more difficulty in the acceptance of the belief system.

I may offer you another belief system which shall not be so readily accepted. You hold the belief system that it is wrong to strike a small one. You view another individual strike violently a small one. In the acceptance of the belief system you may choose to engage or not engage this activity, but in the acceptance of this belief system, recognizing that your response is influenced by a belief system, you hold no affect in viewing another individual's choice to engage this action, and you also hold no value judgment in respect to the other individual.

This may appear harsh initially to you, for your belief systems are so very strongly-held, but in recognizing that the element of right and wrong, good and bad, are the expression of the belief system of duplicity, which is a belief system, all that stems in action from this belief system is an expression of the belief system, and as you hold value judgment of any belief system, you lend energy to the perpetuation of the very belief system. The neutralization of a belief system is the acceptance of a belief system, which no longer lends energy to the perpetuation of that belief system.

In this, within the action of this shift you may express to me, "But Elias! We shall experience lawlessness within the action of this shift, for individuals shall run amuck, realizing there is no right and wrong and no guidelines!" Incorrect. It is unnecessary to be experiencing these elements if there is no value judgment placed upon them. The desire is diminished. Therefore, the exploration of unacceptable territory is neutralized.

You implement your limitations and your restrictiveness upon yourselves – and the implementation of your laws and rules – in mirror action to your judgment and your lack of acceptance, and this is the perpetuation of the belief systems that you hold. This has been your reality throughout your existence to this present moment. This be the area that I express to you [that] your reality shall be entirely altered within the accomplishment of this shift in consciousness, for this shall no longer be your reality. You shall experience tremendous freedom for creativity, as opposed to limitation and restriction. (Smiling at Robert)

RICHARD: Elias, I have a deep interest in the Mayan calendar, and I was wondering what you could tell me about the number thirteen and the ratio of that. I had strong connections with it and went away from it for a while, thinking it was too isolated of a belief system and not founded in today's reality, but I've been finding a lot of coincidences everywhere. I'd like just your thoughts on that, and especially the number thirteen.

ELIAS: Many individuals are drawn presently, also within regard to this shift in consciousness, to many different aspects of elements of remembrances. There have been many cultures throughout your ages which have held slightly more of an objective awareness of realities within consciousness, and have expressed these within their cultures. In this present now, many individuals find themselves drawn to these particular cultures. Presently, many individuals draw themselves to the time framework of the pharaohs, for this also holds a culture which held many aspects of consciousness which you view to be lost presently. They are not lost. They are merely not remembered. In this you are opening to your remembrances. This, as I have expressed this evening, is another element of this shift in consciousness.

In holding focuses simultaneously within these particular cultures, these bleed through to individuals and create a remembrance. The draw that you hold, the coincidences that you recognize … which are not coincidences because there are no coincidences. (1) There are also no accidents. Everything within your creation is immaculately and perfectly created within probabilities. In this you allow for a bleed-through of recognition, of information. You hold a focus within this culture. In your terms you hold a past life, which is not past and is not a lifetime. It is a focus and it is occurring presently, simultaneously. It is merely moved into a parallel area of consciousness, a parallel reality to this reality, for they are all occurring simultaneously. They are sideways from you. In this, the actions and the information and the knowledge of this focus bleeds through into this particular focus, and you experience a draw.

You also may misinterpret, as many individuals misinterpret, with dates in the area of prediction. Throughout your ages many cultures, many individuals, have created predictions, tapping into probabilities and the possibility of insertion into this reality of these probabilities, but they are probabilities. They are not absolute. In this, in connecting with another focus of your own essence which is participant in this culture and holds the belief systems of the predictions and holds the belief systems of the culture, this bleeds through to your awareness within this particular focus and is influencing of how you view your reality. This be the distinction that I offer to you, in expressing to you that you access other focuses continually. You merely are not recognizing what you are accessing. This be the area that is creating of misinterpretation and of distortion of information, and this be what lends energy to the actualization of probabilities that SHALL create trauma. This also be the reason that I speak to you, to offer you information in avoiding this; for as you gain information, this offers you the ability to recognize within your focus elements of yourself and reality, and distinguish what is within this particular focus and what is within another focus which is influencing of you. This be the reason you are influenced. (Pause, smiling)
You SHALL understand. You shall be offered this information again, and you shall assimilate. It is being assimilated subjectively. Objectively, as I speak to you, it is difficult for you all to assimilate entirely all of which I offer to you. Within your desires, you wish to know much. Within your objective capacity to internalize that which I offer to you, you are limited initially, but this shall also expand. I have offered you more information presently within this session this evening than you shall be assimilating objectively, but this is acceptable, for I shall be repeating of this information and you shall be assimilating of it. (To Richard) Know only that you hold another focus within this culture of the Mayans, and this is the focus that is influencing of you presently in this present now focus and influencing you, and therefore you are noticing many elements which are bleeding through that you term to be coincidence. It IS reality. (Pause)

FORREST: One brief technical question. You referred earlier to the purpose in this domain as being experience. Recognizing that within this physical domain the concepts of limitation and freedom are conjugate, would we not also be able to say that one of the other reasons for being here is creativity?

ELIAS: Correct. Yes.

DIANE: Can you briefly speak to the ideology of disease? Medical, but in particular, psychiatric?

ELIAS: Ah! Briefly? Briefly, they are influenced by belief systems, once again. Briefly, they are choices of the individual focuses. Within the direction of what you term to be mental illnesses or psychological affectingness, these individuals have chosen to move outside of the officially accepted reality within their creation of their experiences. There is nothing "wrong" with these individuals. They choose to be engaging more subjective activity within their objective awareness, but as you do not understand what they are creating, you create belief systems around the behaviors and THEY assume the belief systems in relation to themselves, and this sets up a situation of conflict within the individual and confusion, and therefore creates another dynamic altogether. This particular subject shall be requiring of much more time, and I may be expressing to you of the subject matter of physical and mental illnesses if you are so choosing, but this would be requiring of much of an entire session. It is much more involved and intricate than it appears. There are many reasons and choices that are involved in these situations, but the conflict stems from the belief systems which are enforced and are enacted on the basis of behavior which is displayed outside of the officially accepted reality. They do not fit within the guidelines of your acceptable reality. We SHALL continue this discussion.

DIANE: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome. We shall offer, in parting to you each, your essence name.

FORREST: I forgot the notebook! (Laughing) Does anybody have a piece of paper and a pencil I can borrow? (Here, the group chats for a minute, and Forrest explains that Mary's essence name is Michael)

ELIAS: Very well.

To Nathan: Robertt; R-O-B-E-R-T-T (pronounced ro-bear')
To Diane: Juan; J-U-A-N (same as Spanish pronunciation)
To Richard: Zephel; Z-E-P-H-E-L (pronounced ze-fel')
To Laura: Lynya; L-Y-N-Y-A (pronounced lin'-ya)
To Robert: Pierre; P-I-E-R-R-E (same as French pronunciation)
To Erik: Mosten; M-O-S-T-E-N (pronounced mos-tan')

These are offered to you as a gift within our introduction this evening and our creating of acquaintance objectively. I shall be anticipating our next meeting with you all and offering you more information, and you may be offering more of your own questioning, for information may be offered to you in the direction of your questioning IF you are questioning! (Smiling)

To you all this evening, I extend to you much affection. I bid you all a very loving au revoir.

Elias departs at 8:34 PM.


(1) I'm not entirely sure about this, but in my memory, this is the first time Elias has used the word "because."

Elias Session #284: "Strange Times"

Session 284:
"Strange Times"

Saturday, May 30, 1998 (Group Session)
Participants: Mary (Michael), Forrest (Ellius), Carole (Aileen), Tom (Thomas), Monica (Bridget), and thirty new participants, of which only the following names are available: Betsy, Debra, Doug, Ellen, Fred, Joanne, Lee, Linda, Mari, Mary, Nancy, Pam, Rodney, Sally, Sharon, Suzanne, Tom, and Tony.
This is a group session held in Connecticut at Carole's house.
Elias arrives at 6:26 PM. (Arrival time is 20 seconds)

ELIAS: Good evening! (Smiling) This evening, we shall begin with an examination of your present time framework.

What be this air that hangs so very strangely upon this time period presently that moves you all in a new, strange direction that is unclear? "What is my purpose? What is my direction? Where are we moving? What does our future hold?" These are questions that have been presented to this essence and that all of the individuals presently upon your planet are inquiring of, for these are strange times … changing times, but interesting times!

You engage presently what I have designated in my terminology as a shift in consciousness, which is occurring presently and escalating and is affecting of all of you individually and also en masse. Odd and peculiar events occur within your present time framework, and this moves more intensely as you move forward within your linear time. In this, waves occur in consciousness.

Let me express to you that there is no separation within consciousness, and although you view yourselves to be separate individuals, and within this reality objectively you are, you are also not. You are all interconnected within consciousness, and you hold no separation. You all hold affectingness to each other en masse and individually, and in this you share many experiences.

Presently, within this now, a wave is occurring within consciousness which is directly involving this shift in consciousness. Many individuals are beginning now to be experiencing elements of trauma and confusion.

Now; let me also express to you that as I have expressed many times previously, the reason that I speak with all of you is to be offering information in regard to this shift in consciousness, and in that to be affecting in lessening the trauma that shall be associated and IS associated with this shift. And now, it begins.
I have been speaking for a time period with many individuals as to this shift in consciousness, but I have also been offering information to all of these individuals of self, that they may better understand their individual selves and interactions and therein hold a greater understanding of the action of this shift in consciousness.

This shift is global. You have agreed within essence to be creating a new type of reality within your particular dimension, which is this, and in this physical manifestation you have exhausted your wonderment with your experiences that you have created previously, and now move into a new area of experience.

What is your purpose within this dimension? Your purpose is to be manifesting for the experience of physical focus within a dimension that is focused upon the sexual and emotional aspects of physical experience. Experience is your purpose.

(Grinning) You have no mission. You have no method. You have no process. You are not in school. You are not upon a lower plane, and there are no masters that are above you that are guiding you along your path, for you have no path! You merely hold experience.

You are essence. You each before me presently are an individual focus of your essence. You are a focus of attention of your essence, and your essence holds countless focuses of attention. This be important for your information, for within the action of this shift these focuses shall bleed through to you, for there is no separation and for you are loosening the veils in consciousness that you have held throughout millennium in this particular physically manifest dimension.

Presently, as I have stated, another wave within consciousness is occurring. Waves in consciousness occur continuously. Some of these waves hold more of an intensity than others. Now; let me explain briefly a wave in consciousness. You create waves in consciousness continuously. You label these waves objectively through your belief systems. Let us use an example that I have presented many times to individuals, for it serves the purpose well:

You create seasons of actions. You create seasons of waves that you respond to. Within your physical seasons of your year, you also create a wave season; a cold season, a flu season. This is a creation of a wave that you participate within en masse. You all individually create this, and in agreement en masse you manifest this. Individually you create your own individual expression or participation within this wave, or you choose not to participate within the wave. You always hold the choice to participate or to not participate, but the wave of energy in consciousness holds such an intensity that many individuals DO participate within these waves.

This is not what you would term to be an objective choice. You do not think, "I recognize a wave in consciousness is occurring. We have created this. I shall participate. I shall become ill." No. You do not express to yourself, "I shall become ill, for this shall be contributing to the commerce of our society." Or, "I shall be participating in the exchange of consuming pharmaceuticals and engaging truths," – which, Aileen, you may explain at a later time period to these individuals – "that our economy shall benefit." (1)

No, you do not. You merely participate. Subjectively you DO choose for your own reasons, and those reasons shall be beneficial to you, for you do not choose any experience within your focus that is not beneficial. It may not hold pleasantness; it may not hold joyfulness. It may hold uncomfortableness or distress, but it is beneficial. Beneficial is not positive or negative. In actuality, there is no positive or negative! There merely is choices of experience.

In this, you create presently another wave; not in the area of physical affectingness as your seasons of illness, but you create an intensity of a wave presently within consciousness en masse which is designed by you to be addressing to belief systems. This particular wave you have created within a huge swell which is affecting not only of you individually, but greatly en masse – within your societies, within your governments, within your countries, within your world – but these you may view quite easily. You may look to turmoil within many areas of expression objectively outside of you, so to speak … although there is no outside of you! (Grinning)

In this, you may look to other individuals experiencing conflict. You may look to societies, you may look to communities, you may look to business, you may look to all elements and view upset. This may be in what you term in your belief systems positive or negative – either. It holds an intensity, and it is obviously viewable all about you. But although you may allow yourselves the enlightenment of expressing to yourselves and other individuals that you understand and see that this is an action of this shift in consciousness moving throughout your communities … for you are so very enlightened and knowing! But as you experience these elements within your individual experiences, you question and you express, "Why am I experiencing this intensity? Why do I experience this conflict? Why do I experience this confusion? Why am I creating what I am creating?" Or, "Why is someone else creating what they are creating for me?"

(Intently) No other individual creates for you. You create your reality individually. Every aspect, every element of it, you create. You draw yourselves to other individuals' creations, but you are creating of this also, for you are drawing yourselves to their creations. Therefore, you are participating and you are within agreement.

Within this present now, this wave which is occurring, and has not crested presently yet but continues to build and accelerate, is affecting of individuals in different manners. If you are experiencing conflict within relationship, if you are experiencing conflict within business, if you are experiencing conflict or confusion within self, within understanding, within belief systems, this is connected to this wave, and you have created a choice to be participating within this present wave in consciousness, and this also is directly related to this shift in consciousness.

The base element of this shift in consciousness is to be identifying, recognizing, and addressing to the belief systems that you hold and to be accepting of these belief systems – not eliminating, not altering, not changing, but to be accepting of these belief systems, which therefore renders these belief systems neutralized, which shall be creating of this new establishment in consciousness; for if you are not affected by those belief systems that you hold, you allow yourselves the opportunity to open to your awareness and you allow yourselves to view more of your reality.

I have stated many times, this shift in consciousness is limited to this dimension. This is YOUR choice within this dimension upon this planet in this reality, and in this you may be allowing yourselves to drop these veils within your singularly focused attention and allow yourselves to be interactive and viewing of so very much more of your reality that you create within essence. This offers you the opportunity to view and participate within the action of transition, which until recently, so to speak, in relative terms, individuals have chosen merely to engage the action of transition after disengaging physical focus.

Disengagement of physical focus, as you are most probably aware, is that moment that you choose, which you DO choose, to be disengaging of this manifestation, or what you commonly address to be death. I do not choose to engage the word death, for there is no death. There is merely emergence, which is birth. Therefore, at the moment of disengagement, you are birthed, not "deathed." (Grinning, obviously pleased with the word "deathed." Elias is full of himself tonight!)

But within this action of being birthed and an emergence, you enter into an action which is termed to be a transition. This transition is to be shedding completely of the objective awareness and the belief systems held within the objective awareness, that you may re-emerge – not newly emerge, but re-emerge – yourselves into non-physical focus and move into whatever direction you choose to move within, for you are within a continual state of becoming, and that is what you are. Therefore, if you inquire, "What am I?" or "Who am I?", you are essence and you are within a continual state of becoming. This is consciousness. This is essence. This is you.

As to this wave and its affectingness and your participation within it, you may also be choosing to be participating within this wave but not within conflict, and in this you may be creating of tremendous excitement or elation, heightened senses, a time period of heightened awareness, but you also shall be addressing to belief systems, for this is the action of this particular wave. This be the reason that more individuals are presently experiencing confusion and conflict, for they are addressing to their belief systems.

All of the creations that you engage that you view to be negative or confusing are those that are addressing to your belief systems. All of those experiences within this time framework that you choose to engage of heightened senses and elation or excitement are the acknowledgment to yourselves that you have been addressing to belief systems, and this is your validation that you are accomplishing moving through elements of your belief systems. Therefore, there may be different expressions, but the action is the same. It is merely dependent upon your position and how you have addressed to your belief systems … or not addressed to your belief systems!

In this, let me be clear in expressing to you, these waves have been moving more frequently within what you would term to be a recent short time period. Within your recent few years this action has been accelerating, and now you move into an immense wave addressing to that very core of the action of this shift in consciousness, and that is the addressing of belief systems, and in that, the most affecting belief systems are those of duplicity and acceptance.

You all hold the belief system of duplicity. There is no individual upon this planet within this dimension that does not hold the belief system of duplicity, but in moving into the areas of acceptance, you also move into the area of accepting of duplicity automatically, in part, and therefore begin the neutralization of this belief system, which holds the greatest stronghold with you. You believe that you are good and bad simultaneously, and this is duplicity, and you believe that all other individuals are good and bad simultaneously. This is duplicity. And no individual is good and bad, for there is no good and bad! It is merely choices of experience.

There is no element within your dimension – there is no element within essence – that is good or bad. You merely hold belief systems that express this to you that you believe, and you create your reality in accordance with this, and this perpetuates the lack of acceptance within self and within other individuals, and this creates conflict and the perpetuation, and over and over and cycling and circling and continuing. And this be the action of your shift, to be altering of this reality and recognizing the reality that there is no right and wrong, there is no good and bad, and there is no necessity for judgment.

And also let me express to you that each time you view yourselves or another individual to be right, you are creating a judgment. You do not merely create judgment in expressing wrongness, for each time that you express rightness, you also express wrongness automatically, for some element must be wrong if there is an element that is right! This is how you have created your reality and your belief systems, and it IS your reality and it is a very STRONG reality, and it holds to you very strongly and YOU hold to IT very strongly, and you resist the letting go of these belief systems, for they are familiar. And this is what you have created for millennium and this is what you recognize and this is comfortable, and although you express you are not comfortable, you continue to create uncomfortableness, for it is familiar, and in that it is comfortable.

(Humorously) What is uncomfortable is the unfamiliar – strange beings visiting you, strange qualities within your experiences, and the "wooo" (grinning) of all of the unknown elements that exist within your reality! You are leery of plunging yourselves directly into the middle of your Bermuda Triangle within your own home, but this triangle holds wondrous elements and within it you hold wondrous creativity! And this is what you magnate to presently, although you hold to your energy and you hold to yourselves in fearfulness, for it is unfamiliar and frightening, but it is wondrous also! And therefore, the knowing within you that you are so accomplished at NOT listening to any longer re-emerges within you and allows you the wonderment of your own remembrance; your remembrance of self, of essence, of what you are, and the amazement of your own unbounded creativity, which it is!

Each of you holds wondrous gloriousness! There are no limitations to your accomplishments. There are no limitations to your energy. There are no limitations to your connectedness EXCEPT within the area of the holding to your belief systems, and as you hold to them you also create your own limitations and you do not allow yourselves to view the wondrousness of what you have created within this dimension.

This particular dimension is exceedingly diverse, and you have offered yourselves within this particular dimension the opportunity to explore immense creativity and creations. Look about you at what you have created already! And now you move into the area of not expressing outwardly in the creation of your planet, of your world, of your inventions, of your expressions, but now you move into the MORE expansive area of creativity, in expressing what you are and who you are and what you may access. You hold presently the ability to access ALL of your focuses of essence. The veil is very thin. You have created this! You may access other areas of consciousness, not within "chanting trances" (grinning) but within your objective waking state, that which you manipulate so very well and have accomplished so very well within.

Within your objective expression, you may expand now. It is not limited to creating outside of you, but may manifest in what you may view to be outside of you as projected by within you, as accessed from within you. But in this, your key is to be addressing to these belief systems, and the most powerful of these, as I have stated, is that belief system of duplicity, which blocks you tremendously en masse and individually.

Acceptance is the lack of judgment in any area, which may be sounding quite simplistic to you all, but I shall be wagering to express to you that your accomplishment objectively of this action shall not be quite so easy, (laughter) for you shall find yourselves within situations every of your days expressing a lack of acceptance, either to yourselves or to another individual. But be assured, this also is not negative! This is your OPPORTUNITY to engage this action. This is your opportunity to express to yourself, "This be not bad; this be not good. This be my opportunity to create my choice." For as you allow yourselves the hold of your belief systems, you also limit your choices and you express that you do not hold choices. You are bound; you MUST be. You must not be! I express to you, extremely not! You merely believe that you are locked, but you are not, and each opportunity that you present yourself within, within each wave, offers you the viewing of new choices.

You need only relax momentarily and stop momentarily and view your own action; NOT view another individual's action, but view YOUR action and view YOUR belief systems, for it matters not the expression of another individual. This be not your responsibility. You hold enough responsibility for self, which is tremendous! Therefore, why shall you assume false responsibility for another individual? This shall be overwhelming! In your terms physically, you do not possess enough time to be assuming responsibility for any other individual upon your planet, for your time framework is consumed merely with your own responsibility. But you assume responsibility for other individuals, for this distracts you from the responsibility of self and allows you to not address to self, and also allows you to continue in your familiarity of your belief systems of duplicity and your belief systems in acceptance and the lack of that therein.

Acceptance is the word; acceptance of self in recognition that you are not bad, that you are not good, that your expressions are not bad, they are not good. They merely are.

If you are choosing presently within this moment – (chuckling deviously) shall we be shocking? (laughter) – to be engaging contrary to the belief systems that you all hold in areas lurid, shall this be bad? If you rise and move to this individual across and physically engage contact, shall we all be aghast? Of course, for these are your belief systems, but they are belief systems!

If you all shall be engaging unacceptable behavior within this presence, oh my! We shall all be wondering if we have engaged lunacy, shall we not? No. You are merely creating choices for experiences, which are influenced by your belief systems and are judged by your belief systems.

You adorn yourselves with apparel, for you hold a belief system that this is necessary and acceptable within your society. It is a belief system. It matters not whether you choose to be adorning yourself with apparel or not, but you hold belief systems that it matters greatly! (Laughter) Therefore, it is quite affecting. You carry this belief system farther by expressing that it also matters what type of apparel you shall be adorning yourselves with. My, we shall be very conscious of this aspect!

Let me express to you, a belief system is as a bird cage. I have expressed this analogy previously, but I shall repeat it presently.

The bird cage is the belief system, but the bird cage holds many, many, many birds, and you may include many more birds into the cage, as many as you choose, for the cage expands and is accommodating of however many birds you choose to be placing in it, and it shall continue to expand, for it is quite accommodating.

This is the belief system, as the cage. The birds are all of the elements of the belief system, all of the aspects of the belief system, and I shall express to you that each belief system that you hold holds very many birds and may be quite tricky with you, for many of the birds are hiding behind other birds that you may not even allow yourselves to view. The point of acceptance is to open the door of the bird cage and allow the birds to fly away. Therefore, you continue to hold the cage, but it is empty.

The cage remains before you. You have not eliminated the cage, but the cage serves no purpose, for the birds are not contained, and in this it is merely a cage, an object for you to view and not maintain and not interact with, but merely just view, and in this you may express your opinion of the cage: "I view this cage to be quite lovely. I view this cage to be quite distasteful." But it matters not, for it holds no purpose. It holds no function. There are no birds contained. And as the birds are allowed to fly away, they are transformed within energy and are no longer birds. Therefore, what shall you replace in the cage? There are no birds to put in the cage. It is merely an ornament.

(Intently) This be an action of your shift. This be one of your most affecting aspects of this shift in consciousness which shall be the most liberating of you, for in this action you allow yourselves to divert your attention, which has been held so singularly to your belief systems, away from the cage, which is merely ornamental. Therefore, in opposition to viewing this one cage within your room, you allow yourself to view the room. You allow yourself to view the vastness of all that is around the cage that you have not allowed yourself the openness in your attention to view, and all the wondrous creative elements that reside in that space, so to speak, that you have not viewed, for your attention has been directed to the cage and all of its birds.

I shall allow you to be assimilating this information. We shall break, and as we return, I shall allow briefly for your questioning. To you all, I shall request excuse.

Vic's note: Whew! That's certainly one of the longest dissertations I've typed to date. It seemed like one very long run-on sentence!

RESUME 7:52 PM (Arrival time is 6 seconds)

ELIAS: Continuing. You may engage your inquiries, if you are so choosing, at this time period. Is this "formal" enough? (Grinning, and the group laughs)

Vic's note: It's going to be difficult to identify who is asking questions, but I will do so when possible. Otherwise, I will just indicate male or female.

FORREST: Elias, can I ask one quick question? I'd like to understand the difference between the action of choosing and the action of judgment.

ELIAS: Choice is choice. It does not involve a judgment or the lack of judgment. It is merely an action, a choice, a decision that you hold to move in one direction or another direction, to be creating of one probability or another probability. A judgment is a projection of a belief system. Choice may be influenced by belief systems, but it in itself is not a belief system. Judgment is. Judgment is always an element, a bird of the cage, an element of the belief system. Choice is merely an action which is not a belief system in itself.

CAROLE: I have just a real quickie. Is everybody here Sumafi? Is that why the people that were coming kept switching around? Did we end up with a room full of Sumafi? (Laughing)

ELIAS: (Chuckling) You are correct.

CAROLE: So that's why the people that were coming kept switching and changing, and I wasn't really sure until the end. (Elias nods and chuckles) Thank you.

MALE: Elias, I understand what you're saying about belief systems and not judging things as good or bad, but would you agree that there are actions that we can do that cause suffering to ourselves and others? We don't call it good or bad, but there's actions that I'm sure you would prefer – or anybody in the room here would prefer – to be done to them, and things they would do to other people.

ELIAS: Those are indicated by your belief systems. As for your question to myself of preference, I hold none. They are merely experiences. It matters not what you choose. The reason that I interact with you is that you HAVE created a choice within your preferences, which are also influenced by your belief systems, that you choose to not be experiencing trauma within the action of your shift, for within your belief systems you view this to be negative and undesirable, but this also is viewed by your belief systems.

As for myself, within the area of consciousness that I occupy this is not an element, for I do not hold belief systems, and therefore any experience, regardless of how YOU view these experiences as pleasurable or not, are merely experiences for my viewing. But I shall express to you that within your physical focus you HAVE created an officially accepted reality, and in this you DO create the reality of thickness or not within your energy, based upon your belief systems. Therefore, if you are moving in directions within your physical focus of hurtfulness or judgment, you also create a thickness with the energy that you receive and that you project, and this creates what you may term to be – although in actuality it is not, but what you may term to be – a slowing of your motion. I may also express to you that in seeking pleasure or in moving in the direction of pleasure in ANY area, you eliminate this thickness.

Now; here shall be your paradox in your duplicity, for you view those elements that are positive to be good and acceptable and you view those elements that are uncomfortable or hurtful to be bad, but you also view those elements that you view to be positive and good as pleasurable and you view them also to be bad! (Laughter) There are only certain conditions that your pleasurableness may be accepted, and if you move outside of these conditions, you place yourself right back into your duplicity in expressing, "Now this pleasure is bad!"

It is acceptable to be experiencing pleasure in certain areas. It is acceptable within your officially accepted reality to be experiencing pleasure if you are not abusing pleasure, which is ANOTHER belief system, another bird in the cage! You may be experiencing substance if you are not abusing substance, for this may be pleasurable, but it is also bad. You may be experiencing sexuality, but you may only experience this within the confines of your belief systems and the mass belief systems, for if you move outside of the mass belief systems and engage this action of pleasure, it is bad and it is no longer acceptable.

You may move in the direction of many pleasurable actions, but once you move in the direction that is not compliant with the mass belief systems, that pleasure automatically becomes unacceptable and bad, and no pleasure – we shall rock your world with this statement – no pleasure is bad! ALL pleasure is acceptable and ALL pleasure lends to the ease of your movement through your focus, for you automatically within essence magnate and move in the direction of pleasure, and this eliminates your thickness … but you limit your pleasure tremendously!

You shall at time periods be witness to this essence express acknowledgment of individuals inquiring in the area of pleasure. "But Elias, shall I move into this direction of engaging another individual in pleasurable activities when our mass belief systems are so very far against this?" And I shall be expressing, "Yes. Shall you not?"

You shall express to me, or other individuals may express to me, "Shall we not place judgment upon individuals that engage in popular substances?" What is your present substance, which is so very popular, of smoking?

CAROLE: Marijuana?

ELIAS: Ah, very good! Very bad bad bad! (Laughter)

CAROLE: Or the new sex drug … what is it? Viagra!

ELIAS: Very bad bad bad! (Laughter) These are pleasurable items – very bad! – for you hold very strong belief systems in these areas, which are very reinforced by your mass belief systems.

Ah, another area which has become a very strong mass belief system – and we shall rock your world again – your [tobacco] smoking. Individuals have inquired previously, "Is this harmful to me?" Yes, it is harmful to you, in relation to your belief systems. If you are in compliance with the mass belief system and you hold the belief system also that this action is harmful to you, yes, it shall be, for you shall create that; but in itself, no, it is not.

It is merely your belief systems that dictate what you create, but the things in themselves do not hold belief systems. Therefore, how may be they affecting of you in any harmful manner, for nothing that you create is harmful to you. It is merely your belief systems that create the harmfulness, for you do not create harmful elements, for essence is not harmful to self and is not intrusive to any other essence. Therefore, how shall you be creating of any element that is hurtful to you, except within the expressions and the influences of your belief systems.

Therefore, I answer to you: Yes, to you there are actions that are acceptable and there are actions that are not acceptable. There are directions to be followed and directions not to be followed. You shall not be harmful to another individual and murder them, for this is unacceptable. I express to you, if you shall be engaging the action of murdering another individual, you are in agreement to be experiencing a role of perpetrator and victim for that experience, and it IS a choice and it IS an agreement. Therebe, (therefore) what is the right or wrong? There is none. It is merely an experience, and each experience is purposefully chosen by each individual for their own benefit; not necessarily pleasure, but benefit.

MALE: Thank you. (Six-second pause)

ELIAS: Little mice, once again! (An impatient Elias, once again!) Chattering chattering chattering within your energy, and being so very objectively (whispering) quiet. (Chuckling)

FEMALE: So people choose to be a victim?

ELIAS: Absolutely. All of your actions within physical focus are a choice. You choose what you desire to be creating within your experience in conjunction with your intent that you have created within each focus, and for its purity of its experience

FEMALE: So somehow that will be beneficial to that person that chooses to be a victim?

ELIAS: Yes. If they are surviving, they may be….

FEMALE: But there is no death, so….

ELIAS: You are correct. I use this word of survival in conjunction with your belief systems of physical survival, and if they are surviving physically, they may be using this experience to their benefit. If they are not, they have chosen to be disengaging in this manner, which is not bad, for they are not within death. They are merely creating a choice to move into a new emergence in that moment.

It is all a choice. Your choice of disengagement is yours. You may be murdered. You may be eaten by a bear. You may disengage within your dream state. You may choose to be creating of tremendous disease, and in that….

FEMALE: Or you could choose pleasure!

ELIAS: And you may! It is all your choice. You may choose to engage disengagement as you are experiencing pleasure within your sexuality! Quite fun! (Everybody cracks up) It is your choice.

FEMALE: Are you familiar with Landmark work at all that's going on right now? Landmark education?

ELIAS: Yes. This would be another avenue for information and allowance of widening awareness.

I shall express to you, there are many avenues available to you. Not all individuals draw themselves to myself and this information that I offer. It is available to all individuals that choose to be drawing themselves to it, but not all individuals shall draw themselves to this information. They shall move in other directions, but it matters not. It is merely a choice, and there are many avenues, many actions that are established presently and shall be becoming established, for they all are in compliance with this shift in consciousness. Even within your religious communities, there becomes a new movement in a similar direction.

It matters not what you look to for your information. It matters that you allow yourselves the opportunity to receive information, for information allows you knowledge, and knowledge creates wisdom, and in wisdom you create for yourselves an opening in consciousness and a freedom. And this be the point, to be allowing yourselves a new liberation and freedom within your creativity.

FEMALE: That's why this is like the same.

ELIAS: MUCH is available to you that you shall perceive to be similar or the same.

FEMALE: Did you ever hear of the "hundred monkey" effect? (Pause)

ELIAS: I am aware. This shall be another expression which shall facilitate an opening with many individuals, for it allows an opportunity for individuals to be connecting and be allowing themselves a clearer understanding in certain areas, but also I caution you that many of these types of elements also incorporate some belief systems.

MALE: Elias, could I ask a question?

ELIAS: You may.

MALE: Do you see a time duration to this shift?

ELIAS: Yes. I have expressed this….

MALE: I apologize. I was dozing in and out of consciousness while you were talking.

ELIAS: I have not expressed this within this evening! (Everybody cracks up) Therefore, you have not "missed" the information! I have expressed this previously, but not within your physical presence. Therefore, be assured that you continue to be fine! (Chuckling)

MALE: Thank you!

ELIAS: Yes. This shift in consciousness began at the turn of this present century and has been building throughout this century. You approach your new century and the beginning of your new millennium, and within this coming century, approximately within its three-quarter mark, this shift in consciousness shall be accomplished in its fullness, and your reality shall be very different than what you view presently. ALL of your reality shall be different.

I have expressed previously, once only, a description of many elements of your reality that shall be quite altered. This is not limited to only your element of consciousness. You also, within your belief systems, have separated. You view your spirituality … let us all bow to spirituality now, (bowing, and much laughter) for it is very sacred, and is also very removed from you all! (Grinning)

In actuality, your spirituality is all of you. It is not separated. It is not some action or element or "part" of you that is beyond your reach and that you are reaching for or that you are seeking out. It is all of your expression. It is who you are. There is no separation. Therefore also, this shift shall not merely be your vast enlightenment within consciousness! It shall be your new-found remembered awareness of what you are in its fullness, and it shall be expressed in ALL of your reality, within consciousness – that YOU view to be consciousness, as some elusive, floating "thing" – and also within your objective expression; your societies, your way of life, so to speak, your currency, your exchange, which there shall not be exchange any longer, for it shall be unnecessary. Your entire reality, physically, objectively, shall be altered, for this is the direction that you have chosen to move into for a new experience.

And I express to you this night, as I have expressed previously, your science fictions are closer to science fact than you realize, and are not so very far removed from your grasp! And this should be evident to you, for you create more and more and more of your science fictions and occupy your fascinations with your science fictions as you move through your linear time. It becomes more of a fascination to you, and you become more creative with it, for you are accessing information that you KNOW subjectively within you, and you are expressing this outwardly objectively in imagery, preparing yourselves for what is to come.

FEMALE: Elias, what is to come?

ELIAS: Greatness in your focus; the elimination of the conflict that you have fascinated yourselves with for so very long; the exploration of the wonderment of what you view to be your cosmos. There is more to your reality than you have allowed yourselves to view! You offer yourselves within this century glimpses that are influenced by your belief systems of "little gray squashy guys," your extraterrestrials, which are your projections to yourselves of your focuses in other dimensions that you may access, and these shall be recognized in their true form, not in what you project them to be, and known to you as elements of you, not as something outside of you, but a focus within another dimension that you shall hold the ability to access, for exploration shall be through dimensions and within and around this dimension. Therefore, you shall hold the ability to explore through universes and around universes, and this shall be affecting of this reality also, for you shall also realize that the reality that you hold presently holds no efficiency if you are not holding belief systems, for within the acceptance of the belief systems and their neutralization, what be the necessity to be expressing of them?

Why shall you murder someone for an experience if you hold no belief system in this area? Why shall you create the agreement? Why shall you be hurtful to another individual … or to yourself, which you are more than you are to any other individual! And why shall you engage this action, for you hold no belief system that influences it. In this, where be the motivation? You have experienced these elements already. They have lost their fascination. You now are ready to expand and explore OTHER elements of your reality which hold MUCH fascination; new worlds, so to speak.

And why shall you hold exchange and currency? You do not hold the belief system that is attached to it. Individuals shall be providing for the necessities, so to speak, of your physical existence, for they CHOOSE to be providing. Individuals shall engage in fun! They shall move in the direction of creating what THEY find pleasurable, and there shall be plenty of individuals that find occupations pleasurable that you now enforce as not pleasurable [and] merely to be engaging currency.

There are enough individuals that find pleasure in tilling. There are enough individuals that find pleasure in business. There are enough individuals that find pleasure in woodwork, in metal, in ANY aspect of creating that you can imagine to be creating, and there are also enough individuals to provide you with beauty within your arts. And contrary to your present belief systems, individuals are not lazy! They are merely unmotivated, for they are limited by their belief systems and by the belief systems of the mass. But in the allowance of freedom and the liberation of the hold of the belief systems, there is no free-for-all. There is no chaos. There is an allowance of free expression, which shall be completely adequate to provide you with all that you need.

FEMALE: Is this that you describe WITH a physical body?

ELIAS: Yes, absolutely! You may also be realizing that your physical body requires much less maintenance than you realize, and in this you may also be realizing – you SHALL be realizing within the probabilities of this shift – that your physical manifestation may be continued for much longer than you allow presently. You may not choose to be creating for extended linear time within your physical form, but within the exploration and excitement of what lies before you within your creativity, you may be choosing to be extending of your linear time framework that you occupy within your frame of your focus. Therefore, your average age, so to speak, of disengagement may jump tremendously to that which extends into hundreds of your years, for if you are engaging pleasure and joyfulness and enjoyment of what you are creating, why shall you disengage the action? You shall continue the action for the experience!

This is not to say that you may never experience conflict once this shift has been accomplished, for you may choose to be experiencing conflict, but you shall hold the awareness of WHY you are experiencing this conflict and WHAT you are creating and HOW it is purposeful to you. You shall not hold question. You shall be intentional in your conflict, knowing that it is merely an experience that you choose to engage. (Here, there is a pause as the phone rings and the answering machine picks up) More equipment! (Grinning)

FEMALE: Elias, I wanted to ask you about disengagement. When you choose to disengage, do you always have a different physical being afterwards, or could you have none? I don't understand.

ELIAS: Ah! We move into the belief system of reincarnation! (Grinning, and laughter) There is no reincarnation, for there is no "thing" to be reincarnated! Each focus is a new, unique expression. It is not a used part! (More laughter)

Therefore, I express to you also, all of your focuses occur simultaneously. You merely hold the perception within this dimension that you move in the direction of linear time in sequence. You are born, you live, you die, you move into non-physical focus, you are born, you live, you die, you move into intermission, you are born, you live, you die. Very incorrect!

ALL of your focuses are occurring simultaneously. This be the reason that you may access all of them, for all time is simultaneous. It is not linear; it is sideways. You may step sideways – not forward, not backward, but sideways – and you may view the other you's, which are not you, for they are also uniquely individual focuses of essence, but you are also, and each focus contains all of essence. Therefore, you ARE the other focus … but you are not! (Laughter)

In this, as the individual focus chooses to be disengaging, you do not "return," so to speak. But I shall express to you that the reason that you have developed this belief system of reincarnation is that as – within linear time – you as you choose to be disengaging from this physical manifestation, you move into a non-physical area of consciousness, and you may project an aspect of you which shall be manifest physically. This is a new creation. It is not you. It is its own new creation, and although within this physical dimension it appears to be appearing within linear time, it is not. All of this action is occurring presently.

Presently, you sit within this room and engage me. Presently, you occupy the area of transition in non-physical focus. Presently, you occupy other areas of non-physical focus. Presently, you occupy many other time frameworks within physical focus. Presently, you occupy other focuses within this particular time frame. And presently, you occupy focuses within many other dimensions! (Grinning)

This is all you, and this is all available to you within the action of this shift. And there be your motivation to engage this shift and its accomplishment, for it is magnificent, for you are magnificent, for you are essence, and essence is magnificent! (Brief pause) Is this answering of your question? (Grinning, and laughter)

FEMALE: Yes. Thank you!

ELIAS: You are welcome! (Chuckling) I shall allow for two more questions, and we shall disengage. (Looking at somebody) Yes?

FEMALE: Elias, have you come to mankind in our past, or is this the first time you've come to help facilitate this shift?

ELIAS: Within this type of energy exchange, you are inquiring? (There is no audible answer on the tape)

I have been manifest within this dimension physically in what you term to be previous time periods, or what you may term to be incarnations … which are not incarnations! (Grinning) But within this action of energy exchange, I have engaged this action most previous to the action that I engage presently with Michael, but in that exchange, the efficiency of the allowance for the least amount of distortion was not as great as is allowed with this energy exchange. Therefore, those energy exchanges have been discontinued, and in this I allow myself to focus solely through this one individual of Michael, for this allows the least amount of distortion in that there is an ability to be moving aside the filtration of the belief systems held by Michael, which facilitates this exchange more efficiently.

FEMALE: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.

FEMALE: What can you tell us about this group, Elias, that we don't know, that is obvious to you but not to us?

ELIAS: What is obvious to me is that you are all drawing yourselves together to be accessing this information and allowing yourselves a new opportunity to view the interconnectedness of all and that you are not separated, and this also offers you the opportunity to draw upon this. You have now drawn yourselves together in this forum. You have allowed yourselves the opportunity to objectively meet and interact with each other. You have allowed yourselves the opportunity to view many other individuals that hold the same direction as you hold. Therefore, you have also offered yourselves the opportunity to view that there is no necessity for fearfulness of speaking of such things and engaging in such things, for there shall be no hurtfulness, and you offer yourselves validation to each other and the engagement of each other to share, and in this you offer yourselves not only the validation but the comfort that you may also share this information without fearfulness, that there are more individuals that hunger for this information than you realize.

Those individuals that you may not suspect are merely waiting for the opportunity to be sharing, but are fearful, just as all of you hold elements of fearfulness. "I shall not be expressing this to my employer! They shall be carting me away! I shall not be expressing this to my children! They shall think I have entered senility! I shall not be expressing this to my friendships, for they shall be convinced that I am within lunacy!" Incorrect.

There are more of them that are holding the same thought process, and therefore all remain silent, but you are all realizing that you are all experiencing the same actions. You merely hold to yourselves in your secrecy … and I shall express a secret to you! There are no secrets within essence. There are no secrets among you. You may delude yourselves and you may think to yourselves that you may be hiding of aspects of yourselves, but other individuals connect with your energy, and they may not hold an objective awareness of specific events, but they hold an awareness of you within energy. And what may you be the fear in anything that you express? (That's what he said!)

I believe (chuckling) … although I do not believe anything! (Elias is getting a big kick out of himself tonight!) But I believe I shall be offering subsequently another "secrets session," (chuckling) for they are so very productive to your viewing of yourselves, that it is unnecessary to hold fearfulness in secretiveness. For regardless of how very awful you view yourselves to be within the throes of your duplicity, you may also view that other individuals are unimpressed! (Laughter) And I find it all quite amusing! (Chuckling) (2)

I shall be expressing to you all this evening much affection and much lovingness, and also offering to you each much encouragement and acknowledgment in your accomplishments and in your movement. For although you do not see or believe your accomplishments, you ARE accomplishing and you ARE moving, and in this I offer to you my energy to blanket you each and to be with you in your quest and to be encouraging of you always within each moment.

And if you are viewing blue in your objective experiences, or if you are viewing blue within your dream state, or if you are viewing an individual appearing to you within your dream state that is holding of these blue eyes, you shall be assured that this is my visitation to you in validation of you and in continuation of connectedness with you, for I am always connected with you, for there is no separation.

And to you all this evening, I anticipate our next meeting, and offer to you all a very loving au revoir!

Elias departs at 8:47 PM.

Vic's note: There are birds and crickets chirping throughout most of this session – a very pleasant effect!


(1) Elias has been referring to tissues as truths for a while now. Following is an edited excerpt from session #45 dated 10/15/95:

RON: I have a question. I'm awake! (Laughter) I know that through all of the sessions you have mentioned certain truths, and I would just like to hear sort of a run-down of the truths that have come up in our sessions, as opposed to belief systems. I'm aware of some, but I know I've missed some as well. You could give me some that you haven't talked about too, if you want!

ELIAS: Some truths. (Pause) Truths are constants that may not be eliminated or annihilated. Energy is a truth. Color is a truth. Vibration is a truth. Reality is a truth. You creating your reality is a truth. Consciousness and its different areas of awareness are truths. You are a truth. Belief systems incorporate a much wider area, for they incorporate much imagination, but even within this you incorporate truth, for all thought becomes imagination and all thought is energy, which is truth, which is also reality. Therefore, all imagination is a reality, which is also a truth! (Smiling)

RON: I guess I didn't want to be that confused! (Laughter)

ELIAS: You are wishing me to give you a small box that is saying, "This is Ron's box of truths."

RON: Well, yeah!

ELIAS: I will put this box…. (Here, Elias picks up a box of tissues and holds the box up in front of him, looking at Cathy) Did you notice? (He then places the box in front of Ron, who is sitting to his right) To Ron: This is Ron's truths box! (Amidst much laughter, he proceeds to pluck tissues out, labeling them one by one and giving them to Ron) This is reality truth! This is essence truth! This is (this tissue gets tossed over his left knee) belief systems! This is color! This is music! This is … (here, he pulls out quite a few, placing the entire pile in front of Ron) essence! (We are all cracking up) This is a very big pile of truths!

(2) Elias has initiated two "secrets sessions" in the last three years, in which each participant was asked to present a personal secret and identify the belief systems involved. During the week preceding both of these sessions, we all put ourselves through quite an ordeal trying to decide which "secret" we were going to share. This was not an easy task, but Elias' input was quite informative.

Following is an edited excerpt from session #33 dated 8/27/95:

ELIAS: This week, I will ask you each to examine yourselves and your belief systems. I will ask you to focus on these at another awareness than only superficially and choose within you something that you experience conflict with in a belief system, incorporating some element that you would view as "secretive," an element personally involving yourself in which you would not be comfortable in sharing with another individual. You may be using your entire week to find this element! Therefore, you have much time to explore your own consciousness. And if you are bringing to this audience next week that you have stolen a piece of candy from a dime store when you were a child, incorporating a belief system that this is bad, I will be laughing at you and expressing that you think harder!

This exercise is expressly to illustrate to you how you disconnect and separate and create value judgments and influence your own selves and affect your own consciousness through belief systems. The point of this exercise will not be taken if you are not taking the step in connection and risking in trust. If you are not incorporating trust and if you are continuing to incorporate separation, you WILL experience trauma within your shift. My purpose in speaking to you is to avoid this.
