Influence

Session #1645:

ELIAS: It genuinely is not necessary to be analyzing and evaluating all of your beliefs continuously. It is not necessary to be generating that type of analytical action continuously.

As I speak to you of the examination of beliefs, it is merely in association with those INFLUENCES of beliefs that generate limitations or that INFLUENCE you in a manner that creates conflict or hinders your movement in shifting.

[…]

When Im having this experience, what Im actually doing is I am engaging a preference of a belief.

ELIAS: Yes, and you are filtering information through beliefs without expressing judgments of the beliefs. This is the point not to be changing or eliminating beliefs but to be aware that they exist, to be aware that all of your reality is filtered through beliefs in some capacity, that they INFLUENCE your perception in every moment. But that is not a negative and that is not a limitation. For you choose which influences are more in keeping with your preferences, for every belief incorporates many different INFLUENCES. It is merely a matter of choosing which INFLUENCE you prefer.

Session #431:

ELIAS: What I am expressing to you is, you may be noticing initially that you are being affected. This is your first step, noticing WHAT is affecting of you and noticing your responses.

Subsequently you move into your next step, which is to be identifying what is INFLUENCING you in this area, what is INFLUENCING your perception to be creating your responses, which are your belief systems. This is what is INFLUENCING and therefore creating your responses through your perception. This is the identification step.
