effortlessness

“When you follow your bliss, doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors; and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.” ~ Joseph Campbell

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “If it is not fun, do not do it! If you are incorporating action that is pleasurable to you, you are incorporating what we would express to you as value fulfillment. Your essence does not manifest for the purpose of experience for some mystical reason! Its fullest value fulfillment is expressed through pleasure. This is what your self strives toward, this being why you also incorporate positive and negative; negative being all elements that do not incorporate pleasure, positive being what you strive for, being pleasurable. This is your choice. (Pause) You may experience effortlessness and a pleasurable existence if you are fulfilling your desire. This is why I say to you, if it is not fun, do not do it!” [session 74, February 25, 1996]

ELIAS: “You are natural, creative, expressive beings. You incorporate an effortlessness of essence; and as you widen, you begin to view more and more of your effortlessness. I also acknowledge that you also view much that incorporates, still, effort; but you approach effortlessness increasingly as you widen, this being what you would term to be your goal; although you have no goal, for you have no purpose, for your experience is your purpose! (Grinning, and we all crack up) You are manifest to be experiencing. You are in a continuous, underline, continuous state of becoming. Therefore, you have no goal, for you have no ending, and a goal is an ending! (Pause, grinning) You accomplish continuously. You need only be acknowledging of your continuous accomplishment!” [session 96, May 26, 1996]

ELIAS: “Be understanding, this is where your conflict lies; that you try so hard! (Grinning) We have expressed effortlessness, over and over and over again, which is not synonymous with trying so hard! You may instantaneously alter a belief or a perception by engaging a belief. If you believe a creature to exist, you shall perceive a creature! It shall be a reality, as hot sand shall be a reality. You may also effortlessly, without ‘trying so hard,’ alter this and offer yourself new information; changing your belief and altering your perception, with no effort. If you are engaging effort, you are holding to the existing belief, and struggling against its reality that you have already accepted. (Pause) Food for thought!” [session 102, June 30, 1996]

ELIAS: “Now; as I express to you that moving within your intent may be producing of all that you seek effortlessly, the term that I offer to you as ‘effortless’ is not the same as the lack of action or the lack of exerting energy.

As I speak to you of effortlessness, what I am expressing is that in your creativity and within your intent, as you are following in those movements and you are creating within acceptance and trust of self and you are incorporating fun within your creativity, your action and expelled energy shall be effortless and shall be producing the sensation of joyfulness.

Now; this is not to say that your creation in this manner shall not be requiring of any movement and manipulation of energy or action, for it shall.

I am not expressing to any individual – in actuality, quite the contrary – that they may be sitting upon a pillow throughout their focus, and all that they desire shall merely appear before them!

But within this present time framework, there are misunderstandings which are occurring within individuals in conjunction with this shift in consciousness. Their interpretation moves in the direction that within this shift in consciousness, all of your reality shall be altered, and therefore you shall not be required to exert any energy or action in any direction to be accomplishing what you seek.” [session 398, May 18, 1999]

ELIAS: “Now; I express to you that the accomplishment of this effortlessness employs action, and I have expressed previously with individuals that effortlessness is not synonymous with the LACK of action. It is merely a joyfulness within the choice of action that you create which allows you the perception – or in other terms, the reality – of effortlessness.

In this, there are different vibrational qualities within different densities. In your terms of your sciences, you may allow yourselves the information and knowledge of this type of reality. Different vibrational qualities are exhibited in thicker or more dense energies. There are what you term to be more rapid vibrational qualit[ies] to less density within energy. Therefore, as you create less of a thickness, you also move yourself into less of a density within your energy, and in this, you create more of an ease in your movement and within your flow of movement.” [session 407, May 28, 1999]

ELIAS: “As I have expressed previously, effortlessness is not the lack of action or movement. It is merely the designation that the particular movement and action that you choose shall be implemented easily and with less thickness.” [session 428, July 20, 1999]

ELIAS: “In this, the manner that you have chosen to be creating your reality is to be offering yourself freedoms in certain areas, in allowing yourself to be trusting of what you have created and that it shall continue to perpetuate itself through your energy effortlessly.

What you create within your reality IS effortless. Be it what you deem to be good or bad, it is ALL effortless.

Individuals confuse and misunderstand my expression that I offer to you all in explanations of creating your reality in an effortless manner, for there are certain elements of your reality that you wish to be creating that you block yourselves from creating, and in this, I express information in the manner of instruction to be effortlessly creating what you want, so to speak, that you may not necessarily be creating.

But this is key in what you are expressing presently, what you are discussing presently, for you offer an example in this creation of this type of probabilities, that you have created a trust in self that you shall be creating your reality in a certain manner, and you do not question that reality. You merely accept that it is, and therefore it is!” [session 450, August 19, 1999]

ELIAS: “You will find that when you are following your desire and your intent, you will experience the effortlessness of which I speak, and you will incorporate fun, and you also will not feel so ‘locked into’ your cultural time. This is not as easily attained, within your time period now, as it sounds; for even those who follow their individual intent and desire are quite influenced by cultural time. You may discover an occupation to which you are fulfilling your desire and your intent, but you have locked yourself into your cultural time element. You must appear on time. You must depart at a designated time. You will be incorporated with other individuals to which time is important. Unless you are removing yourself completely from this framework of cultural time, you will incorporate cultural time to some extent, although you may quite efficiently move through your focus effortlessly, and also pleasurably, and appreciating of both time elements.” [session 74, February 25, 1996]

VICKI: Regarding Michael’s [Mary’s] and my conversation last night, regarding the conflict, were we like way out in left field, or were we more like towards center field?

ELIAS: I have expressed previously that you are concentrating much energy in one direction, to which you will be creating conflict if you are continuing. Allow natural time, natural expression. Your desire has been stated. The probabilities have been initiated. Therefore, it is unnecessary for this concentration. You create what you concentrate upon. If you are concentrating upon personal responsibility, you will create it, not uncreate it! More clearly now, heed the warning I expressed previously. (Pause)

Incorporate effortlessness. Also, be remembering: Energy is reality. Thought is energy. Therefore, thought manifests; and although I have discussed thought being expressed audibly manifesting quickly, all thought is manifest. Even if you are manifesting not in this dimension, you are affecting of an alternate self, which is directly affecting of you. Therefore, thought is energy. Energy is reality.” [session 79, March 17, 1996]

ELIAS: “It is quite interesting, in viewing the incorporation of the beginning of your shift, that you may be noticing of your small ones who naturally, within natural time and focus, incorporate an effortlessness in connecting with abilities and their connections to essence. You will notice that these individuals, regardless of their circumstances, or their creations, or their choices, or their belief systems, which they have been taught, seem to be, to you, more ‘in tune.’ In actuality, they are more in tune to essence, for they are within an area of continuation, moving closer to the incorporation, totally, of this shift.” [session 86, April 14, 1996]

ELIAS: “I will express also that your Source Events, being a creative action, also incorporate effortlessness which, unencumbered by your belief systems and your interaction, incorporate an effortlessness through its filtration. I shall offer an example. Within one Source Event, the manifestations are physical focus; physical creations. Let us single out what you view to be life-bearing physical manifestations. In this, there are many actions incorporated, all being effortless.

You create a physical manifestation. It is. It grows. It functions. It operates without your interaction consciously. You do not enter physical manifestation and express to yourselves, each day of your existence, ‘I shall grow today!’ You do not speak to your physical organs or circulatory systems within your body and explain to them how they may incorporate their physical action. You do not consume sustenance and explain to your stomach, ‘You will now digest!’ You do not explain to your eyes that they may see visually, and that they may incorporate color into their vision. You do not interact, within explanation, to your manifestation. It effortlessly incorporates the action of movement, of growth, of development, of all of its action. If you are non-interfering with this manifestation, it effortlessly continues and manifests.

This is not to say that you may not interact consciously with this manifestation and alter its performance, for you may. You may incorporate illness. You may incorporate what you term an accident, which is not an accident! (Grinning) You may dismember this manifestation. You may choose to interact with the physical working of the brain or of your respiratory system. Within your respiratory system, you may interact frequently, if you are choosing. You may, within excitement or depression, be quite affecting of the natural process of your own breath; for your consciousness, within physical focus, is influenced by mass events, which are influenced by belief systems, which disconnect you from your effortless expression.” [session 90, April 28, 1996]

ELIAS: “I will express to you that you may choose to be trusting and accepting and you may choose an effortless direction, or you may choose to be pushing and fighting and screaming and you may incorporate much effort; but your probabilities will, most likely, for there are no absolutes, remain the same. If you are listening, I may be helpful within your acceptance and your effortlessness, but this is quite dependent upon your allowance of belief systems to be flying away; for although you hold much knowing within your inner senses, you also hold tightly, intellectually, to many belief systems. This is not to say that belief systems may not be efficient if they are recognized, and your awareness is wider than your belief systems.” [session 91, May 01, 1996]

BOB: “Hello! I think the issue that’s most pressing for me is incorporating the information that I’m getting here into a new way of looking at things. For the longest time I thought I had a pretty good handle on that, but I’m here, so I must have felt that I needed to enhance that to some extent. I’m finding confusion in that there are times when I can totally connect with what I’m learning and what I’m seeing and it’s very, to use your term, effortless. It’s very easy to just see things clearly and respond to them in a way that works very well for me. The confusion is, at other times it seems harder than ever to respond to certain things. It’s very hard to reconcile that. At least in the past, there was a certain consistency of ability and response and something that you could hang your hat on, whereas now at times things work better than they ever have, and at other times they work worse than they ever have, and there’s this feeling when things are working worse that somehow I’m losing my grip with what I think I’m understanding. Is that enough information for you?

ELIAS: Quite! (Laughter)

BOB: Just wanted to make sure you had enough!

ELIAS: This is a very understandable response. You shall continue to be experiencing these types of actions. Eventually, you all shall understand and learn to be incorporating the effortlessness continuously, but you hold very strong belief systems.

Within your daily activity, before encountering ‘the cosmic one,’ (very humorously, and we all crack up) you continued within your belief systems quite nicely. You have nothing to be disturbing this or conflicting with your belief systems, and if you hold belief systems that are too conflicting for you, you shall merely change your belief system and incorporate a new belief system. Now you draw yourself to information to widen your awareness. In this, you allow yourself the opportunity to look, and to view belief systems and recognize belief systems. You attempt to widen your awareness, but you battle and you hold conflict for you do not understand the meaning of accepting belief systems. You are insistent upon eliminating belief systems, which is not possible within physical focus.

You have created physical focus with belief systems. They shall continue. Even within your shift you shall hold belief systems, but you shall hold an acceptance of these belief systems. Therefore, they shall work for you, in your terms. Those that do not work presently are those elements that you find yourself battling. You may not objectively always hold an awareness of what you are battling, but you shall view the effects, which shall give you an awareness if you are noticing; for each time you engage in battling belief systems to be moving through these belief systems, you shall be experiencing conflict. It is difficult initially, for your belief systems are very strong.

I have expressed to these individuals, initially you shall put forth effort to attain your effortlessness. Do not lose heart in this endeavor. You are not losing your mind, and you are not becoming irrational! I express, as I have expressed to Olivia [Ron], there are many elements of reality that you do not accept, but are reality. You shall find yourself battling with these elements more and more, for you are allowing a widening of awareness. Therefore, you are noticing more. You are becoming sensitized to more. You inner senses are becoming more activated. Therefore, you confuse yourself more. Look to the time periods that you experience your effortlessness. Realize that within the time periods that your action seems to be more difficult than previously, you are dealing with belief systems and allowing subjective activity to be influencing. You are beginning to open. You also fight this! It is natural.

BOB: Is it necessary?

ELIAS: It is not necessary. It is automatic!

BOB: So I’m stuck with it, is what you’re saying?

ELIAS: You may choose to be changing of this, but I shall express to you realistically that within actuality, most probably you shall continue with these types of actions, for you hold very strong belief systems. All of you hold very strong belief systems. You also hold a very strong belief system that you do not gain ...

BOB: Without pain! (Laughing)

ELIAS: Quite! You may express that you do not hold this belief system, but you do. You all do. You believe that you gain through tremendous effort, that with effort comes value. This is not necessarily correct, but this is what you believe. Therefore, this is what you manifest. I may express to you, very realistically and truthfully, that you may choose to experience effortlessness from this present moment after. You shall not believe me ...

BOB: I believe you! You don’t believe that I believe you! (Much laughter)

ELIAS: You do not believe that you believe! (Grinning) Therefore, you shall not manifest this, most probably.

BOB: Will you be helpful to me?

ELIAS: Absolutely, as I am with all, and you shall be noticing of this.

BOB: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 145, January 05, 1997]

PAUL: “I have a question following-up that you reminded me of. I had an out-of-body experience with Jane Roberts many years ago in a class somewhere, and in that experience, Jane walked behind me and placed her hands over my eyes, covering them, and that shifted my focus into what I guess I’m realizing was a glimpse of a larger or wider area of focus. In my memory of that – it lasted a short period of time – it was a glittering, moving stillness of darkness and light are the only words I can use to describe it, but it has stayed with me. I’m wondering if you would comment on that. Is that Regional Area 2? Is that a glimpse of spacious present perception? Could you offer some interpretation?

ELIAS: (Intently) This is an offering to yourself in imagery of not looking without, but looking within to the vastness of consciousness, and offering yourself a type of imagery different to your objective waking imagery, and allowing you to view different elements of the action of consciousness; the sparklingness of it; the movement and the effortlessness of it not being a thing, but not being nothing.

PAUL: And it was vast; it was huge.

ELIAS: Far beyond your comprehension.

PAUL: And that’s why it was just a short perception on my part?

ELIAS: Correct. This is not necessarily a designation of a specific area of consciousness, but of consciousness itself.” [session 224, October 01, 1997]

ELIAS: “Your inner senses are more fine-tuned, so to speak, than your outer senses. You engage your outer senses continuously. You are quite familiar with touch and the sensation of this. You are quite familiar with your sight and the engagement of your sense of hearing. You do not allow yourselves to recognize your inner senses, which move far beyond these outer senses. Your outer senses are outward mirror images of your inner senses, which hold immense power, and you now offer yourselves the opportunity to not only experiment with these inner senses, but in actuality to open to these inner senses and to be moving into the exploration of consciousness within your physical objective awareness, your waking state within this dimension, offering yourselves much more of your own expressions of creativity.

Let me express to you once again: the one prerequisite, so to speak, for this action is that you are accepting and trusting of yourselves in every area of your expressions, in every area of your creations and experiences. This applies to all of the experiences in their mundane expressions within every moment of your waking day. Each time you move into the direction of chastising yourself, even in the area of humor – of expressing, ‘Oh, I have created a mistake! I am wishing I was creating of this situation differently! I could have been creating this situation more efficiently!’ – you have created each situation in the direction that you have created them as the opportunity for you to view your own interaction with your own belief systems and your own responsiveness to the affectingness of them.

Therefore, each expression that you create is purposeful and beneficial, and my expression to you this day, in helpfulness in moving through your focus more efficiently, so to speak, and more effortlessly and with much less conflict – which would be the point – is that I shall suggest to you that you allow yourselves to move in the area of pleasure, for this is the expression that holds the least amount of thickness in energy within physical focus and offers you the most ease in all of your accomplishments.

As you move into areas that are NOT pleasurable, you may also offer yourselves information as to the thickness in energy. Areas that are not pleasurable in your experiences are more difficult! You move more slowly through them and you move into areas of conflict, or you may be experiencing a neutral effect, but you shall not be experiencing the freedom of effortlessness. And as you move into the area of pleasure, you also shall experience effortlessness, for this is your natural expression.” [session 302, July 26, 1998]

NICKY: “… when you’re taking notice of the acceptance of the issue that you’re taking notice of, while one is in conversation and/or meditation or whatever, but especially when you’re dealing with another person, and you’re going, ‘Okay, he’s reflecting or she’s reflecting to me this particular nut, and I see where they’re coming from, and okay fine, and I really don’t believe the same way, and that’s okay too.’ But when you’re looking at the issue....

I have no trouble coming to the point of what I’m viewing in this other person or where I’m viewing them to be or whatever. I have a problem picking that same issue and saying, ‘How does it fit me?’ Because my tendency is to look at it with the same attitude that I did with the person, but when I do it towards me, then I feel like I’m so self-condemning. And then I say, ‘Oh my god, look at how much I’ve been condemning the other person, judging the other person,’ but then I still don’t always pick up on the real issue.

ELIAS: Let me express also to you that mirror actions do not always reflect to you the identical expressions. Another individual may be mirroring to you an element within your own reality that you may choose to be addressing to and allowing yourself to move through within certain issues or aspects of beliefs, but be remembering that their expression is their expression and is created through their perception. Therefore, your expression may be different, but the underlying issue or subject matter is the same. You merely choose different avenues to be expressing the same issues.

Therefore, in noticing another individual’s expression as a mirror to yourself, be aware of more of the aspects of yourself than merely a reflective image in absolute terms, for they are mirroring a subject to you, not necessarily the same identical expression that you may be creating within yourself.

Also, let me express that what you have stated in your own judgment of self is quite common within individuals, and you are creating of this expression quite often. Michael [Mary] also creates this type of expression, and Lawrence [Vicki] also.

(Vic’s note: Hey Mare! I don’t think we do this, do we? I mean, we might judge other folks sometimes, but not ourselves! HA HA!)

Now; in this, the point in addressing to aspects of belief systems is not to be falling into more of an expression of duplicity, which the expression of duplicity is to chide yourself for an expression that you have failed within or you have not accomplished adequately. This is not the point. This is merely a diversion, bouncing from one aspect of beliefs to a different aspect of beliefs.

NICKY: Okay, I can see that. I can see that now!

ELIAS: In this, as you recognize certain behaviors that you have engaged previously and you become aware of those behaviors ... especially those behaviors which involve judgments, for this area provides an automatic avenue to bounce into duplicity. Therefore, in those areas most especially, I express to you, the point is to be viewing that you have been creating behaviors in a certain manner, you are now recognizing those behaviors, and you are choosing to be altering them. But you are not, in turn, placing judgment upon the behaviors that you have already expressed. Merely view them as the behaviors that have been an element of your reality previously. They are not good or bad. You are merely choosing to be altering of these behaviors and expressions, that you may be creating more efficiently.

NICKY: Oh yeah! I like that word ‘efficiently!’ So to be maneuvering ... that’s been a favorite word of mine lately! It’s actually a maneuvering, isn’t it, when you alter something? When you view it and you recognize what it is that’s going on, you maneuver or you alter your way of going at it again, right? Or seeing it again, or dealing with it again, or whatever occasion might arise, you know?

ELIAS: Correct. View your reality in a different manner.

Let me offer to you, Candace [Nicky], that you are very accustomed to viewing one expression as good and one expression as bad, one expression as better and one expression as worse, and in this, you even move the word ‘efficiency’ into the area of better.

Now; I express to you that I have offered information to you all many times and expressed that all of your behaviors and all of your choices are within your value fulfillment, and they are all beneficial. This is not to say that they are all efficient, but they are all beneficial.

Now; let me express to you, ‘beneficial’ may be upon one side, and ‘efficient’ may be alongside of beneficial upon the other side. They parallel, but one is not good and one is not bad. One is not better and one is not worse. They are merely different in their movement or their maneuvering, in your terms, through energy. One offers less thickness within energy.

Therefore, view your reality not as a movement through a substance that you may attach negativity to [or] into any type of substance that shall provide you positive thought process attached, but rather view your reality as a labyrinth, and within this labyrinth you may be moving through many different corridors that are no better or worse than other corridors within the labyrinth, but certain corridors within the labyrinth block at one end. Therefore, you, in reaching the end of that particular corridor, must be moving back through and maneuvering through different corridors in the labyrinth.

All of the passageways within the labyrinth are the same. They are all created the same. They all appear the same. They merely move in different directions. To reach a certain point within what you may term to be probabilities, it may not be efficient to be moving or maneuvering through certain corridors of the labyrinth, for they may not hold a clear passage to the area that you wish to be attaining to, but they may be beneficial, for they may offer you information in new calculations as to how you may be moving through the labyrinth more quickly or more efficiently.

NICKY: Okay. See, my tendency is to look at ‘efficient’ as that analogy you gave one time about going across the street vs. going to Europe to get somewhere. So I do look at ‘efficient’ as like the quickest way to maneuver through something to get to where you’re going. Now, I use that or I think of it when I think I know which way I’m going. All the other times – it seems to be more often than not – seem to be the more beneficial times, the enlightenment times, the coming of awareness kind of a thing. But my desire is to be more efficient, because it seems like I’ve been so scattered my whole life that it would be nice to be able to maneuver and get right to where you want to go.

ELIAS: Efficiency is equated with ease, less thickness. This is not necessarily to express that it is ALWAYS a quicker expression or more rapid expression, but the expression that offers more of an ease and less thickness within your focus.

NICKY: But that’s how I interpret efficient. I use the word ‘quicker’ not necessarily meaning faster, but I guess it’s a word that I also think of as something that’s easy, more fluid, less of a struggle. That’s how I think of efficient, you know, and I’ve used the word ‘quicker’ and I don’t necessarily mean faster. I mean with less of a struggle.

ELIAS: I am understanding, although I shall express also that at times your efficient expression may be expressed more quickly or rapidly. It is merely dependent upon what you are creating and the direction that you are moving into. I mean to be expressing to you merely that you do not equate quickness solely with efficiency, for many times quickness may also be attributed to beneficial aspects, and they may not necessarily be effortless or efficient.” [session 392, May 07, 1999]

KATIE: “Tom has a question for you too. It is: ‘Effortlessness facilitates a manipulation of linear time in a fashion that one may express any physical materialization that is held within or while in this energy of effortlessness.’

ELIAS: It is in actuality dependent upon your expression of your beliefs and your trust of self. You may be creating effortlessly, and this is not to say that you are NOT creating within the framework of your belief systems. Within a trust of self, regardless, you may be, within your effortlessness of expression, creating physically any element that you are choosing.

I have expressed previously that you hold the ability within your physical focus to be creating of any element that you choose, as you are trusting and knowing that you hold this ability and you are not allowing the influence of your belief systems that express to you that you may NOT be creating of this type of action.

Therefore, I express to him that you may be creating of this type of action more efficiently if you are engaged within an effortlessness, but as I have stated, you may be creating within effortlessness and you may also simultaneously continue to hold the belief underlying that there are certain elements within your physical focus that are not possible. Are you understanding?

KATIE: Yes. Yeah, kind of like when I materialized a corsage out of a cooler one time. That was pretty wild! (1)

ELIAS: (Chuckling) You may be creating of many surprising elements within your physical focus, and this offers you a validation that you hold the ability to be creating of any element physically within your reality. But you offer yourselves these momentary disconnections, so to speak, with your belief that it is not possible to be creating of this type of situation, that you may validate to yourself that you DO hold this ability. This offers you information that you may question, and therefore you may be allowing yourself to be widening your awareness and [to be] more accepting of your own creations and your own creativity.” [session 395, May 16, 1999]

ELIAS: “Now; as I express to you that moving within your intent may be producing of all that you seek effortlessly, the term that I offer to you as ‘effortless’ is not the same as the lack of action or the lack of exerting energy.

As I speak to you of effortlessness, what I am expressing is that in your creativity and within your intent, as you are following in those movements and you are creating within acceptance and trust of self and you are incorporating fun within your creativity, your action and expelled energy shall be effortless and shall be producing the sensation of joyfulness.

Now; this is not to say that your creation in this manner shall not be requiring of any movement and manipulation of energy or action, for it shall.

I am not expressing to any individual – in actuality, quite the contrary – that they may be sitting upon a pillow throughout their focus, and all that they desire shall merely appear before them!

But within this present time framework, there are misunderstandings which are occurring within individuals in conjunction with this shift in consciousness. Their interpretation moves in the direction that within this shift in consciousness, all of your reality shall be altered, and therefore you shall not be required to exert any energy or action in any direction to be accomplishing what you seek.

I am expressing to you that this is a misconception and a misunderstanding, but it is creating of a new aspect of beliefs, that individuals may be focusing upon self, moving effortlessly – which in your terms means exerting no energy or action – and that they shall be acquiring all of the financial and material gain as to which they seek. In your very common physical terms within your language, we may express this new aspect of beliefs, which has gained energy to mass proportion, as being acquiring wealth and riches with no effort.

I am expressing to you that this quite is a misunderstanding of the information offered, but this aspect in mass belief system lends much energy to individuals such as yourself, in the manner that it is creating a lack of motivation to be moving into implementing your creativity and your abilities, for you perpetuate the belief system by not engaging action and continuing to be anticipating and waiting for your heavens to drop within your lap your abundance!

I have not expressed to any individual that you may be acquiring all that you seek without action. I AM expressing to you that your action may be effortless, but this is not expressing to you that you may not engage any action at all, for this is how you have created this physical reality, that you engage action, and this produces a thing. You seek a thing, and in the production of that thing, you must be implementing action.

This is not to say that you may not be implementing action which is effortless to you and which is expressive of your creativity and fun.” [session 398, May 18, 1999]

TOM: “There’s an effortlessness I’ve experienced at different times, and I’ve put it into terms of, all creations seem to flow effortlessly and exactly without – oh, how do I put this? – without a struggle. They flow as you want them and it seems to amaze, and I guess I was trying to see if it’s a vibration of energy that we remain in that expedites this acceptance? Am I stating this the way I want? I’m not sure! I’m formulating as I go.

ELIAS: I am understanding of what you are expressing. In this, I say to you that in one manner of speaking, you may be identifying that you move yourself into a certain vibrational quality in creating this effortlessness, for you move outside of the thickness of conflict and duplicity and doubt and into more of an ease in the trust.

Now; I express to you that the accomplishment of this effortlessness employs action, and I have expressed previously with individuals that effortlessness is not synonymous with the LACK of action. It is merely a joyfulness within the choice of action that you create which allows you the perception – or in other terms, the reality – of effortlessness.

In this, there are different vibrational qualities within different densities. In your terms of your sciences, you may allow yourselves the information and knowledge of this type of reality. Different vibrational qualities are exhibited in thicker or more dense energies. There are what you term to be more rapid vibrational qualit[ies] to less density within energy. Therefore, as you create less of a thickness, you also move yourself into less of a density within your energy, and in this, you create more of an ease in your movement and within your flow of movement.

Now; let me also express to you in clarification: You may be creating quite efficiently and quite effortlessly in the expression of energy which does hold density, but the reason that you create so very efficiently in this manner is that it is very familiar to you. Therefore, it is requiring of little or no thought process or concentration upon your part – in a manner of speaking – objectively to be creating within this thickness.

Now; you may liken this to the movement of a fish. A fish may move quite efficiently through water, which holds more thickness and density than your air. You may place this fish within your air, and it shall flounder. It shall hold difficulty in moving within the less density of the air, for this is unfamiliar. Therefore, it appears to be outside of its natural element.

In like manner, you within physical focus as individuals have become so very accustomed to movement through the density of energy – that you create within confusion and conflict – that it appears unnatural and out of your element to be creating without the thickness, and you have become quite accomplished at creating effortlessly within that thickness. You may be creating conflict and confusion within yourselves quite easily, and you may be creating conflict and confusion in interaction with other individuals quite easily!

You may also notice that as you have begun engagement of conflict or confusion with yourself or in the engagement of interaction with another individual, it may be difficult for you to be discontinuing the movement outside of the thickness. Once you have begun the motion and the movement of the conflict or the confusion, stopping the conflict or the confusion IN THE ACTION OF IT may be creating a challenge within you.

But let us view outside of this type of creation, and you may also view that if you are already moving outside of the thickness and if you are creating of the ease and effortlessness within pleasure and joyfulness, it is appearing to you to be expelling less energy than even that which appears effortless and automatic within your conflict. This be the reason that you magnate to the joyfulness and the expression of no conflict, for although you are recognizing of the ease of creating conflict and the automaticness that you hold in creating conflict, you may be creating of even more ease without the conflict.

Therefore, in this, as I have expressed the difference of the density of the water and the air, which each holds a different vibrational quality, you may also liken this to the energy that you exhibit within your focus in relation to your creations within effortlessness and the lack of expression of effortlessness.

TOM: Okay. So in moving in this pleasure and joyfulness, we move in less thickness, which actually could be considered a faster vibration that would also assist us in ... it seems at times that the belief systems are set aside when a person moves in this, in my experience. I guess if I’m saying this in your understanding ... it’s like the belief systems do not matter that you hold, in what you are able to create moving in that.

ELIAS: And what you are accomplishing in this is the very action that I have been offering you information in relation to and have expressed to you for much time framework, in the acceptance of belief systems.

Now; I am not expressing to you that you have moved in the direction of acceptance of a belief system in its entirety, but you ARE creating movement in the acceptance of aspects of the belief systems, and this is quite objectively noticeable to you each.

For as you move into an acceptance of an aspect of a belief system – not necessarily merely changing the aspects of the belief systems or moving your attention from one aspect to a different aspect, but as you move in the direction of accepting an aspect of a belief system – each time it may be presented to you, you shall experience this repeated expression of ‘it matters not,’ and you shall notice that it is no longer affecting of you and that you may maneuver your energy quite efficiently through and around and above and below and beside this aspect, and it shall no longer reach out and snap at you and it shall no longer hold your attention, for it matters not, and it has been accepted in the energy that it is and in the reality that it is, and it shall concern you no longer.

TOM: Exactly. That’s what I’ve been finding with some aspects. It seems that effortlessness also facilitates the manipulation of the time element in some respects.

ELIAS: It is quite affecting of your time framework.

In this, I am reminding you that your perception is that which creates your reality. Therefore, as elements within your perception are affected, your reality is also affected.

In this, as I express to you that within your perception your time framework is affected, I am also expressing to you that within your REALITY your time framework is affected, for the element/the energy of time is in actuality altered within your perception, which is your reality.

In this, you may be noticing that as you are engaging more effortlessness and less thickness – more of an acceptance of self and of belief systems – you shall be noticing that your time framework appears to be in movement more rapidly, and as you employ conflict and are engaging thickness within your reality, you may be noticing that you are also creating within your perception a slowing at times of your time movement. These are actual movements, and not merely what you term to be your imagination. They are actual movements of time in different vibrational qualities, which are different speeds, in a manner of speaking.

You may also notice at times that you may be creating of both movements simultaneously, for within certain elements of your focus, you may be creating of conflict and thickness, and therefore, moments of your time framework may appear to be moving more slowly. But simultaneous in this action, you may also hold certain other aspects of your reality and your creations which are moving effortlessly and are pleasurable, and in this, other aspects of your time framework may appear to be moving swiftly.

In this type of expression, you may be listening to yourself or to another individual express, ‘My day appears to be moving quite slowly this day, but I am noticing that my week has moved quite quickly. This appears to be a paradox within myself.’ You are in actuality creating both movements of your time framework simultaneously.” [session 407, May 28, 1999]

ELIAS: “Greetings!

KATIE: Greetings and bon jour, my friend!

ELIAS: Ah, bon jour! (Chuckling) And you are creating quite efficiently recently?

KATIE: Yes, I am! It’s been wonderful! I’m really enjoying this!

ELIAS: And I am quite encouraging of your movement presently!

KATIE: I’m wondering, what has precipitated this?

ELIAS: You. (Chuckling)

KATIE: Okay, but what changed?

ELIAS: You. (Chuckling)

KATIE: Okay, in what area?

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! You have begun movement into a genuine expression of turning your attention more to self and not occupying your attention so intensely with other individuals, and in this, you are beginning to create evidences objectively.

As you genuinely turn your attention to self, you shall recognize that what you are creating within your focus becomes much more effortless and you are beginning to be creating pleasure, for as you are not occupying your attention intensely with the preoccupation of other individuals’ creations and how you may be helpful to other individuals and how you may be influencing of their reality, and you turn your attention to self and begin trusting in self, you also begin moving more efficiently in the direction of pleasure, which is your natural expression, and you naturally magnate in this direction to less of a thickness within energy. This provides much more of an ease of your individual movement, and you also create the situation of pleasant feelings, emotions, and sensations that shall be occurring within this type of movement.

As I have expressed previously, effortlessness is not the lack of action or movement. It is merely the designation that the particular movement and action that you choose shall be implemented easily and with less thickness.

KATIE: Well, I’ve certainly been experiencing far less thickness lately! (Elias chuckles) But just prior to that, I went through a period where I was so fatigued and so unmotivated that I couldn’t do anything, it seemed.

ELIAS: This is also quite common within physical focus.

As you are directing your attention in extremes outwardly, you DO experience fatigue, and also you may experience this to the point of exhaustion in your physical manifestations. The reason that you experience this, as I have offered previously, is that you are moving through energy within a thickness that you may liken to mud. In this, you exert much energy and there is much friction which is occurring within all of your movements.

Eventually, generally speaking, individuals tire of this action. They create an exhaustion within themselves, and at that point they may hold a willingness to discontinue their movement in this manner, and a willingness to choose exploration into genuinely trusting self and moving into an area of self-expression and viewing self, and allowing self to be motivating as opposed to being motivated, so to speak, by situations, circumstances, and other individuals outside of self, in a manner of speaking.

Once moving into this type of expression, you are quite pleasantly surprised that your movement may be created so very easily and is not requiring of so very much effort, and you may be creating pleasure and much less of a thickness within your movement of energy, and this reinforces your ability to continue in this manner.

The situation with most individuals is – within my interaction of them – is directing their attention to the point that they choose to be moving to that step of ease, for you all hold to the familiar quite tightly. Regardless that it may be requiring of much effort and thickness, it is familiar, and therefore you cling to these types of movements and expressions and are quite resistant of the offering of ease. Quite ironic, is it not?

KATIE: It certainly is! (Laughing)

ELIAS: Ha ha ha!

KATIE: It certainly is. I wish I understood that, why we do that, but oh well!

ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! I offer to you and to many, many individuals within physical focus expressions continuously in directing your attention into areas of effortlessness, and generally speaking, you look to myself and you express, ‘No, no, no, no! I shall continue within my effort, and I shall continue to be moving through the mud. Although I recognize that you are offering the direction of moving through air, this is more familiar and comfortable to me, to be moving through the mud, for I may miss a mud ball if I am leaving my mud puddle!’ (Katie cracks up) Ha ha!

KATIE: Uh-huh! (Still cracking up)

ELIAS: HA HA!

KATIE: I’ve seen lots of mud balls! (They both laugh again)

I’m thinking that the point at which things started turning around was, my friend Tom was aware of the depths of the mud puddle I was kicking around in, and I would write to him over the computer, and all he would write back to me is, ‘Katie, trust yourself.’ And one of those times, I actually listened! (Laughing, and Elias chuckles) Is that the point where things did start turning around?

ELIAS: Yes. (Chuckling)

KATIE: And he was lending energy to me in that?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.” [session 428, July 20, 1999]


End Notes:

(1) Vic’s note: The word “corsage” was inaudible on my tape, so I asked Katie about it. This is what she said:

“That was an easy one. The missing word is ‘corsage.’ (I’m a florist) That was the weirdest thing. I had manifested a completed corsage for this fellow out of thin air. Just reached in the cooler and pulled it out. Even had the ticket with his name on it. Later on, we found the corsage that had originally been made for this same fellow. It also had the ticket with his name on it. The one I pulled out of thin air was much prettier though ... LOL!!!”
