essence families; subdivisions

Paul’s note: these are the subdivision names that Elias has confirmed to date. (1) They represent a small fraction of the tip of the proverbial iceberg of potential variations.

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “I have expressed within our recent time framework that all of these essence families hold what you may term to be subdivisions. Some create subdivisions in combination. These are created within the essences that align with more than one essence family within intent, but not completely within the intent of each essence family. They hold a slightly deviated intent. Therefore, they are creating of a new essence subdivision. It is not to be classified as an entirely different essence family, for it is still encompassed within the existing essence families. It is merely a slightly different tone within intent; this being similar to you within physical focus creating an organization.

Within the whole, the individuals within the organization hold the same direction of intent as to its accomplishment. Within the individuals, you may also hold smaller groups that focus within certain actions or jobs. This would liken itself to these subdivisions of essence families. They merely deviate slightly in their direction.

Let us express that you are within the essence family of Sumari. The action of the Sumari are the pot-stirrers, the activists, the changers. Within essence, you choose to be aligning with the intent, but you also choose not to be expressive objectively of this pot-stirring. Therefore, you may align or belong to a subdivision of the Sumari. You may be creating a slightly different expression. There are many, many, many subdivisions of all of these essence families, some being so slight within tone that objectively, you would not notice any difference. [session 201, July 29, 1997]

RETA: “Okay. Well, we’re trying to get through some of our children, and so I would like to ask you about both their essence family and maybe their alignment. The first one would be my daughter-in-law Sally who lives in Riverside, Sally Farb. I would like to say she’s of the Borledim essence family, and aligned with Sumari.

ELIAS: Reverse.

RETA: Reverse? Well, she really is a good artist, there’s no doubt about that. And then her husband Joe, which is our son Joe Farb, is he in the essence family of Gramada?

ELIAS: No, although this individual focus shall not be aligned with your identification of one of these main essence families, which shall bring us into another subject matter briefly; that all of these essence families, in combination with each other, also create what you may view as subdivisions.

RETA: There was a subdivision mentioned in the Seth books by Sue Watkins, and she said a subdivision of Gramada was Granash.

ELIAS: This would not be the family alignment of which you are inquiring, but there is another essence family which is a subdivision that would be. Now, I shall pose to you to be investigating intuitively, to be finding the identification of one subdivision of family. Attempt!

RETA: Attempt a subdivision of a family? Sumari?

ELIAS: Each essence family, within combination of other essence families, has subdivisions.” [session 143, December 29, 1996]

MICHELLE: “I had some information that myself and several of the other people that are highly involved with the Seth material were involved in the formation of a new family of consciousness. Is there any validity to that?

ELIAS: You have created, within the formation of this dimension, nine. In this, you hold tremendous subdivisions, in your terms, of these nine families. This is all related to tone and intent, for your intent may differ slightly from the main, so to speak, conglomeration of family within these nine. Therefore, you may be also aligning yourself with one other grouping of subdivision of family. Your interpretation is an identification of becoming more aware of these subdivisions, and interpreting this as creating of a new essence family. It is unnecessary to be creating of a new essence family, for you hold myriads of divisions, so to speak – although they are not divided – of all of these essence families within this dimension.

MICHELLE: And what family am I in?

ELIAS: Sumafi.

MICHELLE: And the alignment?

ELIAS: Sumari.

MICHELLE: Thank you.

ELIAS: Many individuals hold these two families within those of you who have been choosing to be participating within the ‘festivities’ (laughter) of your days presently. (2) You hold them in opposite forms to each other, therefore allowing yourselves different objective expressions, but the same intents; some being aligned with Sumafi, some being aligned with Sumari, some belonging to Sumari, some belonging to Sumafi; but within their counterpart action of these families and their harmony with each other, they are quite complementary to each other.

As I have expressed to you, they are also, within this beginning action of your present shift within consciousness, quite instrumental in the initial movement; for this shift is not orchestrated in Source Event by these two families. It is orchestrated by another. But within the beginning actions of the awareness of this shift, these two families initially are presenting of information and of awareness and movement within energy, to be beginning this shift.

JO: Elias, can I ask what family is orchestrating the shift?

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Once again! Now view you all your ‘coincidences’ of individuals that shall continue to draw the same information! I shall inquire to you to be ‘guessing!’

JO: Well, the fact that I asked the question makes me believe that it might be Ilda.

ELIAS: Borledim, (smiling at Jo who, according to Elias, is aligned with Borledim) within conjunction of Vold, which offers a tremendous intensity of energy within this action.

JO: Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 186, June 22, 1997]

MARGOT: “At one time, I received metaphysical teachings about a group of Dream Walkers who were known as the Els. I was told I am connected to them. It was even suggested that I add the name of Ellen to Margot because Ellen carries my vibration in this group. Now, in learning my connection to Patel and that I hold tones of Jeselle, it occurs to me that this might refer to a group of the Dream Walkers. Can you tell me about this?

ELIAS: This is a partial bleed-through of information subjectively held. Each essence family holds many subdivisions, so to speak. They also hold an identification in tone and in naming into your language, as do the main identifications of essence families. They shall hold very similar intent, but with slight variations. This El is not the naming, but it is a beginning for identification of one of these subdivisions of essence family.” [session 191a, July 10, 1997]

ELIAS: “I shall offer to Stephen [Norm] and Dehl [Reta]: Joe, of the family that you have not connected to which is a subdivision of Gramada, Gamasht. G-A-M-A-S-H-T.

RETA: A subdivision of Gramada? And he’s aligned with Zuli? (Elias nods) Thank you.” [session 193, July 13, 1997]

VICKI: “The rest of the questions are from Paul also. ‘Sue Watkins wrote about the Grunaargh family as a blending of Sumari and Gramada. How is this idea of sub-groupings similar or different to your notion of family orientation and alignment?’

ELIAS: I have expressed within our recent time framework that all of these essence families hold what you may term to be subdivisions. Some create subdivisions in combination. These are created within the essences that align with more than one essence family within intent, but not completely within the intent of each essence family. They hold a slightly deviated intent. Therefore, they are creating of a new essence subdivision. It is not to be classified as an entirely different essence family, for it is still encompassed within the existing essence families. It is merely a slightly different tone within intent; this being similar to you within physical focus creating an organization.

Within the whole, the individuals within the organization hold the same direction of intent as to its accomplishment. Within the individuals, you may also hold smaller groups that focus within certain actions or jobs. This would liken itself to these subdivisions of essence families. They merely deviate slightly in their direction.

Let us express that you are within the essence family of Sumari. The action of the Sumari are the pot-stirrers, the activists, the changers. Within essence, you choose to be aligning with the intent, but you also choose not to be expressive objectively of this pot-stirring. Therefore, you may align or belong to a subdivision of the Sumari. You may be creating a slightly different expression. There are many, many, many subdivisions of all of these essence families, some being so slight within tone that objectively, you would not notice any difference.

VICKI: I guess just one question I have within this question is, are these subdivisions a blending, so to speak, as he presented in his question, of different families?

ELIAS: At times, yes.

VICKI: Of intent?

ELIAS: Yes. Not always, for each essence family holds its own subdivisions within itself, therefore not blending with another essence family.” [session 201, July 29, 1997]

VICKI: This isn’t really a game question, but I’m just curious. I had a word in a dream the other night. I don’t remember the dream, but I remember the word. It was Milano or Milan. It seemed to be maybe a subdivision name of perhaps the Milumet family.

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: Milano?

ELIAS: Correct.

... “Addressing to your initial question as to the reasoning for counterpart action, you have chosen within this dimension to be creating of counterpart action in an efficiency for experiencing. This offers you a more efficient direction for experiencing; and in this, each focus, each individual focus, needs not be physically experiencing all of the experiences connected with their individual intent, for the experiences are added to them, so to speak, within the action of counterpart. In this, all that you do within individual physical reality is also a mirror image of what is occurring within essence. Therefore, essence families also engage counterpart action as being more efficient in creating, and in actualizing creativity, and in experiencing collectively.

As to your question of essence families within essence families and the collective, there are more essence families, so to speak, as I have expressed, in subdivisions, which are collectives inside of collectives in the design of essence families. Visually, you may liken this to a never-ending spiral. (Pause)

NORM: The mass consciousness that we have here on this Earth of the focus, is there an equivalent of that with essence?

ELIAS: Absolutely, being that which I have just expressed to you.

NORM: Of the spiral.

ELIAS: Correct. You mirror within your physical focus, individually and en masse, all that you may imagine within essence.” [session 215, September 07, 1997]

VICKI: “I have a question for Cath; two, actually. First, she would like to know what her essence name is.

ELIAS: (Accessing) Baile. B-A-I-L-E.

VICKI: Her other question has to do with the challenge that you presented her to be discovering the subdivision of the Milumet family that she is aligned with.

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: She had a word pop into her head of Sri Gelda, and is wondering if that’s in any way connected to your challenge.

ELIAS: (Grinning) Connected to the challenge, but connected to a different family. This would be a subdivision of the Gramada family. Therefore, you may express, ‘You are moving in a most correct direction!’

BOBBI: ... Is there a subdivision called Gramalda of the Gramada family?

ELIAS: Yes.

BOBBI: Would I be associated with that subdivision?

ELIAS: No.

BOBBI: Would I be aligned with the Gramada family?

ELIAS: Yes.” [session 226, October 05, 1997]

BOBBI: “I have a question about the subgroups of families. Is that like an overlapping of intent of different families, or is it a refinement of the intent of that particular family?

ELIAS: It is merely a differentiation within the intent of the family; a focused area of an aspect of the intent.

BOBBI: Okay. Could you tell me the intent then of the Gramalda family? I’m still figuring out which offspring ...

ELIAS: This would be, as with all subdivisions, within the intent of the Gramada family, but a more defined area of the intent. In this, this particular subdivision would be more defined in the area of defining ideas for invention.

BOBBI: Okay, thank you. Is there a Gramaille subdivision of the Gramada family?

ELIAS: Correct.” [session 238, November 16, 1997]

ELIAS: “There are many subdivisions of all these essence families, but the basic intent of all of the subdivisions is the same as the nine families of consciousness. They are merely slightly – very slightly – different. In this, the Sumari are very diverse. They are very versatile. This allows them the ability to be very creative. They are not bound by any one area. In expressing the expression of ‘pot-stirrers,’ this is not negative. Individuals that are Sumari are agitators.

JENE: Oh, we go from pot-stirrers to agitators! I KNEW I was one of those! (Laughter)

ELIAS: You hold a new invention within your century which is to be washing of your garments. It holds an agitator. It is not negative! It merely mixes. It churns; it mixes. Therefore, this also be the action of the Sumari family. They also are concerned with attaining attention; attention of other individuals and attention of themselves.” [session 261, January 22, 1998]

JIM: “Can you offer some information on the essence families and their connections with color, in that color is a tone and the essence family is a tone? Is there a connection there, and is there a relationship there? David had asked a question something like this a number of months ago, and I’m curious about that, and I’d like to understand a little bit more.

ELIAS: I have expressed recently within another session the response to this same questioning. Now, I shall offer once again to you.

The relation between essence families and color is tone to vibrational quality.

Now; be remembering that tone and color are truths. In this, there are certain vibrational qualities that resonate, so to speak, with certain tones, and are what you may term to be closely associated.

In this, each color which has been designated as representative of a particular essence family vibrates at a certain speed, so to speak, and holds a specific quality, which may be identified closely with the tone which is set by the essence family.

Now; the tone of the essence family is a collective tone which is created by all of the participating essences belonging to that particular essence family. This is determined by the intent of that particular essence family. Therefore, it is the intent which is the identification of the tone of the individual essence family, and that is the quality which resonates closely with the vibrational quality of a specific color vibration.

Within consciousness, this is not translated in the same manner as you translate this within physical terms, but the physical manifestations may be translated into an actual visual color, and also a tone, which may be translated into a sound.

Therefore, the tone and the sound, of the color and the tone, may be used, in a manner of speaking, in conjunction with your meditations focused with the intent of the particular essence family, and this also may produce another window, so to speak, to be accessing more information with respect to that particular essence family.

Now; as you will notice, I have offered the word of tone in conjunction to the color, for this word may be associated also with hue. Each color which has been associated with each essence family holds a specific vibrational quality, and as you are aware, there are very many different variations of each identification of color that you hold within physical focus. Therefore, each of these specific colors hold their own tone also, so to speak, and may not be confused with similar colors, for each essence family holds its own specific vibrational quality. Now; you may also associate these variations of colors, or differences in tone or hue of these colors, to be associated with the subdivisions of each of these essence families.” [session 368, March 05, 1999]

BOBBI: “My son, Chris, is aligned with that subdivision of the Gramada family, Gramalda. Is that sort of like a blending of Vold and Gramada?

ELIAS: Not necessarily, although I am understanding of your impression and what you view in that manner; but it is a variation upon the qualities that are expressed in the Gramada family. Therefore, as I have expressed previously, you all incorporate aspects of all of these families and some qualities of all of them. In this, you may be recognizing some qualities expressed in that subdivision of the Gramada family that appear more closely associated with qualities that are expressed by the Vold family; but it is not necessarily a melding, so to speak, or combination of the two families.

BOBBI: I wasn’t thinking of an actual combination, but more that their intent was sort of... He just has this sort of a real revolutionary bent. So that’s the Gramalda?

ELIAS: Yes.” [session 1305, March 25, 2003]


End Notes:

(1) Paul’s note: the notion of family subdivisions was first introduced in the The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2., 1979, by Jane Roberts in Rob Butts’ notes at the beginning of session 737, February 15, 1975.

Sue Watkins, former ESP class member, family friend, and author received an impression regarding the activities of the Grunaargh family some three years before Seth was to deliver his information on the nine families of consciousness. Sue didn’t know at the time it was a sub-group of Gramada but knew that it was related to the whole families of consciousness concept.

From Sue’s notes about her initial impressions:

“In a session on Sumari I witnessed in 1971 or early 1972 – I picked up a family-of-consciousness name, and Seth said it was ‘Grunaargh.’ It wasn’t on the list given last month [referring to the nine family names given in session 732].”

From Rob’s session notes:

“Sue had picked up on the Grunaargh during the 598th session, which she’d recorded for me the evening after Jane had made the whole Sumari break through in [ESP] class, on November 23, 1971.”

Later...

“The point I want to make here is that others beside Jane can intuitively divine material on the families of consciousness. Actually, for whatever reasons, Sue had glimpsed a family other than Sumari before Jane had.”

From Seth on the subfamilies concept:

“... I do not want to get into family variations, but Sue Watkins picked up a variation of the Gramada family of consciousness (Grunaargh) – quite legitimate, and at the time very good on her part. People love to make divisions. There are then what you can call subfamilies, combinations, highly creative. All divisions are simply for the purpose of organizations of consciousness. The families mix and interrelate, so that you could indeed subdivide them, but the for my purpose there is little point to this.”

“As the physical races mix, so do the psychic ones. Every once in a while, in your terms, a new family forms out of such subgroups. So the families are meant to be understood as general categories into which earth-tuned consciousness fall more or less naturally.” [The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, session 738, February 19, 1975]

“Now you can expand the functions of any particular family group, or you can cut it down, by deciding how precise you want to be. If one family deals with the nature of healing then you can slice it down to the healing of a toe … and ear … an eye.”

“The categories [healing, teaching, or whatever] are general descriptions of the families of consciousness. You can split them up also and make further distinction if you choose. You cut those divisions down. They merely represent interpretations that you can understand in you reality. In the most mundane terms, some families are travelers, and some prefer to say at home. But generally speaking I have simply given you an outline which follow the characteristics of consciousness as it is embarked in physical form. I am mot giving you these groups to set up divisions, but to help you understand that consciousness is diversified – that usually each of you falls, because you want to, into a certain family.” [The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Appendix 26, for session 734, January 29, 1975]

(2) Paul’s note: a reference to the fact that this session occurred during the 1997 Seth Network International Conference, in Room #106 of the Holiday Inn in Elmira, NY. Seth/Jane Roberts produced 40-plus books of material, poetry, and fiction that laid the foundation and overview of information pertaining to the shift in consciousness.
