Regional Area 1 (RA1)
ELIAS: “There are different areas of consciousness. These are related to attention. All of consciousness is all of consciousness. It is all the same. There are no planes. There are no levels. There are no better or higher places within consciousness. All is the same. There are different focuses of attention. In this, there are created what we term as areas of consciousness. These are not places. These are not things. They are not space. There are no sections of space that are designated as areas of consciousness. They are directions of attention. In this, they are also influenced by intent. Each essence occupies all areas of consciousness.” [session 157, March 09, 1997]
ELIAS: “... I have expressed previously, there are many, many, many, many universes and dimensions within your one dimension that you recognize. There are dimensions of time; there are parallel dimensions; there are probable dimensions. All of these dimensions are, in a figurative manner of speaking, subdivisions of what you view as your officially accepted dimension.
JOE: And all of these dimensions are encompassed in like an overall dimension called Regional Area 1?
ELIAS: Yes. They are all contained within it.” [session 481, September 30, 1999]
ELIAS: “As I have stated this evening, consciousness and essences within consciousness are in what you may term to be a continuous state of becoming, a continuous state of exploration. Therefore, within consciousness, there is a continuous movement to be creating areas to be exploring. All of these areas are within itself, for consciousness is all.
In this, Regional Area 1 is merely the designation of a physical reality and the objective awareness within that reality. There are many Regional Area 1’s. All physical realities hold a Regional Area 1. This is the area in which you hold objective familiarity. It is all that you know objectively. This is your waking state.
In this, you have created manifestations of yourself as essence in this Regional Area 1 to be exploring different areas of reality. In a manner of speaking, it is an experimentation. You are playing and exploring all that you may create within a physical dimension of this type.
Now; as I have stated previously, the base elements of this particular physical dimension are emotion and sexuality. Therefore, all that you create within this particular Regional Area 1 is influenced by these two base elements, and in this, you create many, many different expressions and avenues of exploration to be experiencing different elements of these two base elements of your reality.” [session 488, October 20, 1999]
ELIAS: “Regional Area 1 is not a creation of a dimension or a plane to be learning, so to speak. This is another expression of belief systems that individuals hold within this physical dimension. In actuality, you are merely creating a physical reality to be experiencing. This is the point, to be experiencing, for consciousness is continuously creating exploration and seeking out experience, and experiencing of itself and all of the different aspects of itself.
In this particular reality, you have chosen to be creating a type of separation between the focuses of attention and the known elements of essence. You have created this type of reality quite purposefully, that you may be experiencing the purity of each creation and each experience that is held within this particular dimension.
Were you to be offering yourself the entire remembrance of essence, it would be creating quite a different type of reality within this particular dimension. Therefore, you have created a veil, in a manner of speaking, between each of the focuses and all of essence.” [session 488, October 20, 1999]
ELIAS: “We have been speaking of your physical focus; your Regional Area 1. I will express to you that you are stuck within the plastic oubliette of your physical perceptions. In this, I will explain to you what is my meaning. I use the term plastic, as this is a description of something synthetic, something that you create, an element that you mold into what you wish it to be. An oubliette is a place. It is a place of forgetting and remembering. It is an isolated place. It is an old term, but it holds to your present reality.
You view your environment as outside of yourselves. You view your world as your environment; as being separate from you now. When you look within your sea and you view a sea urchin, is the sea urchin part of the environment of the sea, or is the sea the environment to the urchin? It is depending upon your perception. If you are a fish, the urchin is part of your environment. If you are the urchin, the sea is part of your environment; but there is, in actuality, no distinguishing.
In this, I will explain to you that your manifestation is no different. You have created physical bodies with physical senses. To your way of thinking, these senses are there to perceive what is outside of you; or are you perceiving, through your senses, what you are creating? Would you feel wind if you do not incorporate a sense of touch? Would you smell a flower, its fragrance, if you had not created the sense of smell? You perceive what you see, for you have created your sense of vision.
Your senses create your reality. You may view yourselves, in actuality, as having no actual substance other than energy; for if you do not perceive through the senses that you have created, you do not exist. This mechanical ‘vessel,’ as you view it, is more magnificent than you realize, for it allows you to perceive the reality that you create. Without your outer senses, you may incorporate thought energy and project out chemically, as we have spoken previously, through your pineal gland into physical reality and manifestation of matter, but you will not have an awareness of any of your creations, for you have no senses to perceive them. Therefore, I express to you that although it is important for you to be focusing upon your inner senses and practicing, do not discount the valuableness of your outer senses; for they make you who you are.
I have expressed to you that these physical manifestations are expressions of essence. They are no different! They are only physically manifest. You have exquisitely designed your ‘beingness!’ Part of your beingness is also other than your physical senses, which you may remove from.” [session 65, January 07, 1996]
ELIAS: “We will also explain that within other areas of consciousness and essence, all things may be categorized as agreements. All action that transpires between any individuals are agreements; not in what you view to be agreements, for your definition of this word is quite limited to your physical understanding. These agreements are not expressed in the manner that you think of. Each element of your existence is not discussed with each other essence, and it is not debated back and forth. (Extends each hand out as if they were two people talking to each other) ‘I will do this.’ ‘Alright, this is acceptable.’ ‘No, I feel I should do this.’ ‘I disagree.’ ‘Well, acceptable.’ ‘We will compromise.’ ‘This is an agreement.’ Incorrect! No discussion is transpiring! Actions in this element are instantaneous. There is no ‘time element’ involved. They are spontaneous.
I will also express to you that although you create your own reality, as does each individual, you do not create another individual’s reality; but you do interact, and you do influence. This is where your agreements spontaneously lie, as a general understood agreement; that if one chooses to be responding, within consciousness, to your influence or your energy, for you may not always be influencing, in the definition that you hold, but you may be influencing within energy; and if the individual is responding to this, obviously they have agreed to be responding.
These, as I have stated, are not individual agreements. It is an overall agreement, within essence and other areas of consciousness, to be allowing or not allowing, within Regional Area 1, a response. Therefore, if you are viewing an individual seeming to be responding to thoughts that you possess which are unspoken, do not discount; for this is precisely what they are responding to! (Grinning at Vicki) Thoughts are energy. Energy is always in motion. Energy is reality.” [session 77, March 10, 1996]
ELIAS: “Let me express to you that you hold all of essence within you. Subjectively, you hold access to all of essence and all of its information. But what you term to be the unconscious or subconscious element of yourself is that subjective element of your awareness that is concerned with the individual physical focus; not the entirety of physical focus, but the individual physical focus; you. You hold the ability to access through this awareness all of the information of essence, which is all of the information of consciousness; but if not accessing all of this information, you concern yourself subjectively merely with the creating of this physical focus.
(Intently) It is an intricate, immaculate process; that you create your reality subjectively within Regional Area 2, which filters into your awareness of Regional Area 1 within perfect harmony and perfectly at each moment, for your experience.” [session 232, October 31, 1997]
ELIAS: “This particular physical dimension, as I have expressed to you previously, has blinked in and out many times. Therefore, in your physical terms it has existed, and it has not existed, and it has existed again.
DREW: Is that what you mean when you talk about what we call mythological animals having lived at one time? Is it within one of the blinkings of the dimension? Or Atlantis, or those kind of things? Those were in the other blinks of this dimension?
ELIAS: Those are OTHER dimensions, although I have expressed to you that you have created experimentations in forms within this dimension, within this particular blink.
DREW: Within THIS particular blink?
PAUL: Can I just ask a question about the blinking? Are you referring to the very quick ten-to-the-minus fifty-six?
PAUL: This is a different action?
ELIAS: Correct. You as focuses blink in and out very rapidly. Your dimension, your physical reality, your planet, blinks in and out of reality physically in very slow increments, what you would term to be billions of years at a time.
DREW: So in the past when you’ve referred to dragons having existed and unicorns and those kinds of things, those weren’t other experimentations with this dimension? Those were other dimensions?
ELIAS: They were experimentations within this dimension.
DREW: During one of the other, if you will, blinks of this dimension?
ELIAS: Within THIS blink.
DREW: Oh, really!
ELIAS: Correct. They have been inserted into another dimension, for they have not been viewed as efficient within your choice within THIS dimension.
KAAN: So then extinction becomes only the extinction of the form that consciousness takes, that consciousness takes on within our dimension?
ELIAS: I have expressed previously that there are creations within creatures – and also within cultures, within peoples – that choose not to be engaging this dimension any longer. Therefore, they create a movement into another dimension and disengage this dimension completely. Their form continues the same in another dimension and they continue in similar action to what they have created within THIS dimension, but they move into a different dimension.
PAUL: Elias, is this different dimension in Regional Area 1, as we’re describing it?
ELIAS: THIS is Regional Area 1.
PAUL: So this other dimension is ...?
ELIAS: Not! (Laughter)
PAUL: Which Regional Area does it fit within?
ELIAS: It would fit within its own Regional Area 1 of physical dimension, within an entirely different set of Regional Areas.” [session 262, January 25, 1998]
PAUL: I have a question, a follow-up on the Regional Areas, Elias. The definition I understand for Regional Area 1 is this objective moment point that I’m creating. I’m in a room with eight individuals, including myself, and a cat. I’m wondering if, in the definition of Regional Area 1, that I have my own Regional Area 1? Do we each have our own Regional Area 1?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, for you each hold your own perception which is creating of your individual reality. But as I am referring to Regional Areas, these are not in actuality places, so to speak, in consciousness, but areas of functions of elements of consciousness. Therefore, as I speak to you of Regional Areas, I am speaking of areas of consciousness that are encompassing of specific functions and actions and the elements that occupy those areas and functions.
But you are also correct that you each create your individual Regional Area 1, so to speak, in creating your individual reality within your perception.
PAUL: One other question. I had an out-of-body experience on March 13th of this year, in which for the first time I was actually able to project consciously out of my body into my bedroom. (1) So my question is, at the very moment that I separated ... well, I know there’s no separation. At the moment my perception changed and my environment changed, was my experience still within the context of what you call Regional Area 1?
ELIAS: Yes. Let me express to you that within an out-of-body experience, as you continue to involve yourself with your objective reality, so to speak, you are projecting your consciousness through space, but continuing within Regional Area 1.
Now; I may also express to you that you hold the ability and it is entirely possible that you may project within what you term to be an out-of-body experience and you may project into different areas of consciousness, but within those experiences that you find yourself moving within familiar areas and with familiar objects, you are continuing to be moving within Regional Area 1 of consciousness. You are merely moving through space and time, as in differentiation to moving around space and in time.
PAUL: So in that experience, subsequently I explored my house and came back into my bedroom, and I believe, in what you term as a focal point, I dove through the bedroom window and I know I shifted gears, as it were, and I had two basic ... what I describe as a scenario. One involved an urban situation with a black painter, and the second one involved a college campus that I had attempted to connect with in Brattleboro, Vermont. In those two scenarios, where I know I shifted gears, was I still experiencing in Regional Area 1?
ELIAS: Yes, but you are also allowing for a partial dimensional veil-piercing. Regional Area 1 is much vaster than you realize. It encompasses much more within the potential for your experiences than you recognize. You view Regional Area 1 as being very limiting and merely that which is your waking experience, but it encompasses experiences that you may allow yourself beyond your normal, usual focus of attention, for you focus your attention quite singularly, and as you are allowing yourself to open more freely to many more elements within consciousness, you may also view that there is much more expansiveness to Regional Area 1 than you have allowed yourself an awareness of.
Now; also in this, I express to you that you pierce a veil of dimension, for within this dimension there are inclusive many other dimensions, some being very parallel and some being different qualities of different time frameworks. In this, you have allowed yourself to be piercing a time framework veil within your objective Regional 1 awareness. You may accomplish this within your waking state also. Be assured, you may be piercing time veils in your objective waking state. You may also be accomplishing of this more easily within an out-of-body experience, for you allow yourself more freedom within this state.” [session 281, May 17, 1998]
