A dictionary of terms as they are used and redefined by Elias



Emotions are according to Elias one of the ten belief systems and a integral part of the blueprint of this physical dimension.

But most of the time when Elias uses the word emotion, he refers to emotion as communication and signal from subjective awareness to objective awareness. He also states – despite what we may think – that it is not a reaction and that it is not about other individuals.

Session #977:

ELIAS: The emotion produces a signal, which is the feeling that you experience. This signal identifies to you that you are offering yourself an emotional communication, a subjective communication to your objective awareness concerning what you are generating in that moment.

In this, you offer yourself the communication and the signal, which is the feeling, and you incorporate an action which moves in conjunction with the communication. The communication is an identification of what you are experiencing and what you are generating inwardly in the moment.


INGRID: Yes, I am understanding. So, there are no emotions which are not a communication? Any emotion is always a communication?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

Session #775:

ELIAS: Now; this is the familiar response to emotion being a reaction. Therefore, in a manner of speaking, you are, in your terms, half moving into a new identification and definition of emotion, and half continuing with the familiar identification and definition of emotion. Understand, emotion is never a reaction. It is a communication from your subjective awareness to your objective awareness, which is expressing precisely what you are creating within the moment.

Session #774:

ELIAS: For in that emotion of frustration, you are offering yourself a communication. I shall express quite strongly once again, emotions are never a reaction. They are a communication. They are offered to you from your subjective awareness to your objective awareness. The feeling is the signal to gain your attention, and in that emotion is a communication, and the communication is about you, not concerning the other individual.

Session #775:

ELIAS: Now; in recognizing that the emotion IS a communication, as you do not receive the communication, you also continue to express and provide yourself with that communication repeatedly until you receive the message. It may not continue in a manner in which you are constantly expressing one particular emotion. It may be expressed and it may stop being expressed, and it may be expressed again in a different moment or within a different time framework, but it continues to be expressed as you continue to not receive the message.

Session #1382:

As I have stated many times, your emotional communications are quite precise. They address to what you are actually doing in the moment and what is influencing what you are doing. Therefore, they identify beliefs that are being expressed in the moment, and therefore they may be quite valuable in offering you clear information, if you are allowing yourself to pay attention.

Throughout his sessions, Elias has clarified the meaning or commuication in association with a wide range of emotions. Here the emotions of frustration or anger shall serve as an example what he means by saying that emotion is communication:

Session #841:

ELIAS: The feeling of frustration is the signal of the emotion, gaining your attention that there is a communication occurring. The communication within frustration is a recognition that you are presenting to yourself in the moment many choices, and you are creating an expression of confusion in that moment concerning the recognition that you hold many choices but you are not choosing.

As I have expressed previously, at times frustration may move into more of an extreme and become the expression of anger, and in that moment you have created, in your terms, losing sight of all of your choices. This is the difference between these emotional communications.

More Quotes:

Session #1476:

ELIAS: […]Also, the communications associated with different emotions may be expressed differently by different individuals, for it is the individualís communication to themselves, and their communication to themself is expressed in manners that they interpret and translate.

Therefore, it may appear surfacely that individuals incorporate the same emotional communications, but in actuality each individualís emotional communications are unique to them. In each emotional communication they may incorporate certain signals that may appear to be the same, but the communication associated with those signals may be quite different in different situations, and also dependent upon what belief is influencing the individual in a specific moment or what they are generating in relation to themselves or in relation to other individuals or situations that they are creating. Therefore, the expressions are quite varied and diverse.

Even the signals themselves may not necessarily be isolated into specific numberings or listings of identifications of emotions, as you define them or as you relate with them in feelings, so to speak, for they also vary and are more diverse than you generally define within yourselves. You may be generating a list of what you term to be emotional signals or feelings, such as anger or frustration or disappointment or happiness or joyfulness or contentment. You may generate an extensive list of what you identify as feelings, but even that would be incomplete, for there are many more feelings or signals that perhaps may be classified as subcategories. They may be not quite one feeling but not quite another feeling either, and you incorporate a difficulty in precisely identifying what the actual signal is for you do not incorporate actual words or terms for many of these signals; you merely feel them.

[…]In this, it is not actually necessary to be attaching a word or a term to the signal. But what is important is to recognize that a signal is being expressed, and allowing yourself to interpret the message that is associated with that signal.

Another Perspective:

In Abraham's teachings our emotions are the most important indicators for our point of attraction[?]. Abraham term our emotions as indicators of our Personal Emotional Guidance System: (from the book "The Amazing Power of Deliberate intent")

Abraham: You Personal Emotional Guidance Systems operates in a similar way to an electronic guidance system. You cannot receive guidance outside of the routes (or beliefs) contained within your system. Your Emotional Guidance System of Relativity is based only upon your active vibrations (beliefs) and their relationship with your desitred destination.

Your emotions are your indicators of the vibrational relationship of the active vibration within you.
