ELIAS: “Each essence is continuously engaging the action of fragmentation, for this is an action of consciousness. You are continuously within a state of becoming within consciousness, and exploration and expansion, for this is the nature of consciousness. In this, an action of fragmentation occurs continuously with ALL essences. This action would be that of what you would view within physical focus of an emergence of a new essence from what you think of as an existing essence. I am not attempting to be promoting separation, but within your physical thought processes, this action and this concept is very difficult to express within your physical language!

Therefore, view an essence. The essence holds myriads of qualities. Each quality of essence is an element of consciousness. This element of consciousness may express a desire to become its own essence. In this desire and in the agreement of essence of continual fragmentation, the essence fragments this element, which then becomes its own essence, holding its own tone and its own personality and therefore choosing its own independent experiences, but retaining all of the experiences and the qualities of the fragmenting essence. Therefore, there is no separation.” [session 209, August 19, 1997]

ELIAS: “Let me express to you that fragmentation is not necessarily an indication of obvious alterations or changes within an individual. It merely is an action that essences engage continuously and that may allow different types of expressions or explorations within the fragmentation of the new essence. But this type of action occurs, as I have stated, continuously, and within physical focus, to your objective awareness, it moves unnoticed many times. Therefore, it is not necessarily affecting in objective terms with the individual, although there are situations in which it may be affecting at times. But generally speaking, it is not an obvious objective affectingness.” [session 438, August 04, 1997]

VICKI: “I have a question about fragmentation. When an individual is fragmented within a developmental focus, as Thomas [Charles Sr.] and Ti-Le’ [Charles Jr.], why are sometimes the connections very strong within that type of fragmentation?

ELIAS: It is dependent upon a particular fragmentation. The reason you identify so strongly with these particular fragmentations is that the essence that has been fragmenting is quite aligned with these fragments; these being what you might term as ‘favorites.’ (Smiling) If you allowed yourselves the ability to be viewing, as a movie, your developmental focuses, you may identify with one in particular that you like very much. In this, you may express that it would be your ‘favorite lifetime.’ Each essence which physically manifests also holds an affection for certain developmental focuses and experiences. In this, if one of these is fragmented, there is a great bond and connection with the fragmenting essence to the fragmented essence.” [session 81, March 24, 1996]

ELIAS: “Let us engage a very simple example. You may choose to manifest within a focus, and you may choose, within your pool of probabilities of that focus, to experience an intensity of an emotion of what you term love. Be realizing that our term of this word is quite different, within definition, than your term; but within your terms, this is a choice that you wish to experience. Therefore, you choose, from your pool of probabilities, directions to be experiencing this emotion. Within those probabilities, you choose the probability of engaging this experience with another individual singularly; not with your children, not with your parents, not with other relationships, but singularly, in what you view to be a romantic relationship. Therefore, you must engage the action of another, in cooperation with you, to experience this emotion. If you are choosing the probability of experiencing the emotion of romantic love, you will not experience this alone! (Grinning, and laughter) Therefore, you choose to experience this in cooperation with another individual. In this, the individual will be a counterpart.

Now; the action of this particular counterpart obviously will not be opposite to your experience, for they have entered into the same probabilities within agreement. In this action, they enhance your experience, as you enhance their experience, within cooperation. This is only one example, as an illustration, of this type of counterpart. These types of counterparts may be aspects of the same essence as you, or they be aspects of another essence. They will hold their own individuality and their own focus. They will hold their own independence, regardless. Therefore, if they are another aspect of the same essence as you, they are not you! They are quite independent of you.

Now; if you share fragmentation or essence, you may experience an even greater, heightened intensity of the emotion or the action within the probability that you have chosen, for you are much aligned within tone, as is the case with Lawrence [Vicki] and Olivia [Ron]. These counterparts may choose to be manifesting within many physical focuses. Therefore, there is a recognition within consciousness of each other. Objectively, you may not identify what the recognition is, but you shall experience a recognition. Within you, within your consciousness, and within your subjective awareness, you know. You recognize the connection within energy. You only do not remember objectively. This is not to say that it is not possible to be remembering, if you hold this desire; for you may engage your memory subjectively, and you may translate this objectively and hold a recognition of what you feel. This is not to say that each time that you engage an intensity of a romantic relationship, that you have experienced this same action with this individual throughout many lifetimes, in your terms. You may have engaged the relationship much differently within other focuses; but within the action of a common, agreed upon, cooperative relationship and intensity thereof, you may be continuing in this direction.” [session 127, October 06, 1996]

NORM: “Is there an analogy between essence and all of its focuses, and a focus and its counterparts and alternate selves and fragments? Does a focus have the ability to make a fragment, or is it an essence that can make a fragment? I’m trying to get an analogy of what happens with a focus alone, in comparison to what happens with the essence. Can you help me there?

ELIAS: Fragmentation occurs through essence. A focus is that; a focus of your essence. I have expressed previously to these individuals to view your camera. Think to yourself of the lens. You may think of yourself as the essence. You look through a camera. The camera does not see the entirety of the field of vision that you see. It focuses upon one spot. You are a focus of essence. As you physically look through the lens of a camera, think of your field of vision and its wideness. Now think to yourself of essence. It is focused throughout many universes, for its field of vision spans All-That-Is.

NORM: Pretty great! (Laughter) That’s pretty good!

ELIAS: You are a focus. You hold all qualities of essence. You are physical expression manifest of essence. You are not a vessel! You are a physical expression of essence; a perfect design.

Essence fragments. A focus alone does not fragment. Essence, within its entirety, does. A focus holds many aspects of its own. You hold many alternate selves. We return to our tree! You may view yourself as a branch of the tree. You, being one of the focuses of essence, may be one branch, but upon this one branch you hold many, many, many leaves, and they are your alternates, and they are your creations. They also hold the ability to be fragmenting, as does every focus.” [session 133, November 17, 1996]

ELIAS: “As you move through consciousness and you move into the area of transition, many events occur. You also continue, as always, to be making choices. Within these choices you may choose to be remanifesting, although you do not remanifest, for each focus is a new creation! This is contradictory information, but it is not.

You may choose to be remanifesting and you may accomplish this in many different directions. You may choose to be remanifesting an aspect of yourself, as you identify yourself. Or, you may be choosing to be interacting with another focus or another essence and you may together remanifest a combination of aspects, which shall be you but shall not be you, for it shall be its own new creation. You may fragment and you may allow this fragment to remanifest, which is you but is not you; for all aspects, all fragments, all focuses contain all of essence. You are all of essence. You are a focus of essence. You are as the air is. You may not differentiate. But, what has happened to you? The new manifestation has been created, and where have you gone? For you do not disintegrate! Energy is not annihilated. Therefore, you continue. This is your choice as to which direction you move into.” [session 147, January 12, 1997]

NORM: “Both my wife and I are curious about Stephen [Norm] and Dehl [Reta], as to whether or not we are fragmented with any common essence of the rest of the group here.

ELIAS: You inquire to your fragmentation of each of you?

NORM: Yes.

ELIAS: Stephen [Norm] is fragmented of Otha. Dehl [Reta] (chuckling) is fragmented of ... Ordin. (Cathy groans) (1)

BOB: I don’t get it!

NORM: And all of you eventually came from Ordin? Mary and Vicki and Ron and Cathy?


NORM: Okay. I thought there was ...

ELIAS: These essences are fragmented of Paul, or of Paul and Elias.

NORM: Where does Ordin come in with you? I thought Ordin was two fragments back. (Laughter) Isn’t that true? (Elias starts laughing)

CATHY: Explain that one, Elias!!! (We’re cracking up now)

NORM: What’s going on???

BOB: I understand less than you do!

ELIAS: Otha has fragmented Elias and Paul.

NORM: Oh, really? So, we’re fragmented brothers?

(Vic’s note: you would have to be privy to Carole’s last few emails to appreciate this!)

ELIAS: Or to Aileen’s [Carole’s] way of thinking, (Vic loses it) this may be an incestuous creation! Ah well, these are the musings of essence! As we do not engage sexual activity within this focus ...

RON: That was gonna be my next question!

ELIAS: ... we must be amusing ourselves with this type of incestuous fragmentation! (Laughing, a pause, then whispering) Such quietness, (loudly) outwardly!” [session 159, March 23, 1997]

ELIAS: “Good evening. As we continue with our subject matter this evening, we shall be addressing to certain elements of your genetics that your scientific community does not recognize as of yet. You have inquired of information concerning the DNA molecule, and I have offered information of variances in genetic coding which seems inconsistent with heredity.

We shall first focus upon a function of some RNA. In this, your sciences furiously research and work to be discovering why certain elements physically respond in the manner that they do. They do not understand the mechanism of these elements that you have created in your DNA and your RNA. Viruses, to scientific thinking, are foreign elements which are incorporated into the body of an organism. They are intruding, forcing their RNA into what you view to be normal cells, and these acquiesce to the intruding substance. First of all, as I have stated previously, these elements are contained within your physical manifestation already. You choose to be activating or not activating of these elements. Therefore, these molecules exist within your physical expression already. In this, subjectively within consciousness you instruct these molecules in the direction of which you wish them to be manifesting, as you also instruct your own DNA.

There is more to your genetic encoding than only physical elements. Emotional qualities are encoded within your genetics also, but as I have stated that all of memory is encoded, this is placed into the encoding physically by you subjectively. You are creating of all of these elements. Each individual contains a unique genetic pattern. Each individual physically manifest manifests DNA patterns which are unique to them. There are qualities of these patterns that may not be reproduced in any other individual upon your planet, for you have uniquely encoded your own genetics.

There are many elements that your sciences shall overlook, many more elements that go into the make-up of your expression within physical manifestation than they choose to look for. They shall be questioning why certain behaviors are exhibited by individuals or creatures or vegetation, but they shall not attribute this to genetic encoding. Here is where they deviate from our track, for these are elements also of your encoding. Everything that you are physically is encoded in these physical elements that you label as your genetics.

The simplest of your life forms, in vegetation in your plant life, respond to situations and vibrations and telepathic messages and emotion. You think to yourselves that your species is the only species capable of certain elements within your existence. I suggest to you that you may very well experiment yourselves with other life forms, as you view them, upon your planet, and you may witness that they also respond to thought processes and to much more than general, simple stimuli. You may frighten a plant by merely thinking of its destruction. You do not view this response, for you are not looking for the plant’s response. It shall create within itself an electrical charge which shall be its indication of withdrawal from you in recognition of your thought process, for within consciousness it understands what you hold as intention.

You devalue your creatures and your vegetation upon your planet as ‘less than,’ and as not holding consciousness as you hold consciousness. This is incorrect. All of what you view to be living creatures and also vegetation hold genetic qualities. You have created the entirety of your dimension physically in this same manner. You have encoded everything to be efficiently manifesting in repetitive movements. All of your living material or that which you classify as living material, be this creatures or vegetation, holds the same abilities that you hold in manifestation. Within consciousness they manifest with different intents as you direct this, and within consciousness they may seem to be simplified for their expression is not quite as complex, but each link of consciousness holds the same elements.

In differentiation to physical matter, each link of consciousness holds all the same qualities. These links of consciousness make up you within a physical focus. They make up essence within non-physical focus. They make up everything that you create within physical or non-physical focus in every dimension. These links of consciousness group together to form patterns or fields electrically, which then translate into physical focus more initially as an idea than as actual matter; and as you who are creating of this physical dimension add energy to the creation of any element physically within matter, these links which have grouped and formed fields move together more concentratedly and begin manifestation of physical matter. (Pause) I will end there, for I wish not to be confusing you with the complications of much of this information.

I wish to express to you that you differentiate living matter and non-living matter. You differentiate and express that there are elements upon your planet that hold life and breathe, and there are elements upon your planet which do not hold life. I express to you that your planet itself is alive. It holds its own consciousness. It breathes. It pulses quite rhythmically. Your planet itself pulses every twelve days. It holds its own rhythmic heartbeat.

Therefore, the distinction is merely a difference in the choice of arrangement of links of consciousness to be creating genetic codes, for all elements that you recognize to be living hold genetic codes. Rocks do not. This is not to say that the rock is not alive. It is manifest physically within matter and your time framework differently. You have chosen to be manifesting many elements within this dimension with many variations in creation. These creations that you have manifest which hold genetic coding are truly masterpieces, for they are quite exquisitely engineered; exceptionally precise. Each cell of each living entity holds its own encoding. It holds its own message, but it also holds its own memory. Many individuals speak of cell memory. The idea has been distorted somewhat, but in actuality each cell does hold extensive memory. These are not elements that you may measure, although you may partially measure, for you may measure behavior of cells or of parts. Therefore, you may witness demonstrations of some elements of memory. Each cell not only holds the entirety of your encoding within your DNA, but it also holds the entirety of memory; not only of this physical focus, but of all of your focuses.

Some individuals within this dimension hold memory within cells, which also speak to the individual objectively within their consciousness of other dimensions. It is not entirely what you would perceive to be as common, but there are individuals that have chosen to be fragmenting within essence and crossing over dimensional boundaries, so to speak, entering into different cycles of physical manifestation. This is confusing, I am aware, but it shall serve our purposes for explanation. This works in what you may view to be the opposite direction of your common present-day folklore involving your extraterrestrials. They do not carry off your DNA or your genealogy; but you, if fragmented within this focus from another dimension, may introduce new information and memory of other dimensional focuses. This is not an alteration of your genetic encoding. It is cellular memory which is held within physical manifestation. This may at times be misinterpreted by some individuals as being likened to a transplantation. There have also been many new myths created around the information which bleeds through within memory from these individuals.

Once choosing to be entering into this particular physical focus, this dimensional focus, the focus of the essence chooses to be complying with the accepted physical production and manifestation of form and function within this dimension. Therefore, you may not encounter aliens walking about you. You may also, as we have stated previously, not encounter what within your present new folklore is deemed as walk-ins, for there are no walk-ins (2); but you may encounter individuals that hold memory of other dimensional focuses which are also physically manifest. Their DNA, their genetic coding, their physical manifestation is in alignment with this dimension. Their memory within their manifestation is different.

Not all individuals allow a bleed-through into objective awareness of this memory. Individuals may hold cellular memory in this fashion and they may also be choosing upon manifestation to not be acknowledging of this memory, just as you are choosing within each focus physically manifest to be forgetful of essence for the purity of the experience within the physical focus. (Pause)

Returning to the interaction of the molecule which synthesizes protein, which is your RNA, there is no intrusion of one to another. It appears that the virus may be intruding and taking over and destroying of what you view to be the healthy cell, but in actuality this is directed subjectively, and the relinquishment of the healthy cell is an agreement to acquiesce to allow the manifestation that the individual has chosen. No element occurs accidentally; and within this manifestation physically in this dimension you must be realizing, within this time period now, how ultimately efficient you have created this physical world. You do not create accidents! All of your manifestations are exceedingly precise, to the movement of every single molecule and atom within your physical manifestation.

VICKI: ... But I’m confused about some of the other things you talked about tonight, as far as if you were to be experiencing a fragmentation in this focus, then you would have cellular memory ...

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: ... of other dimensional focuses.

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: But if you did not incorporate this fragmentation, you would not have this memory? Is this correct?

ELIAS: What I have stated is that you hold this memory, but you may not be choosing to objectively remember.

VICKI: So the memory is there, regardless.

ELIAS: Correct. It may be tapped, but you may be choosing not to be acknowledging of the remembrance.

VICKI: Okay, that makes more sense.

ELIAS: This is provided that you hold focuses within other physical dimensions.

VICKI: Would this particular information be the kind of information around which belief systems of seeding and genetic alteration from aliens or other dimensions, is this where these belief systems kind of come from?

ELIAS: Correct. These are bleed-throughs of memory of other dimensional focuses, which are reality. There are not alterations of your physical DNA or genetic encoding within this dimension; although in a recognition within memory of different genetic patterns which do not necessarily include DNA, the individual may misinterpret the bleed-through information and therefore develop a belief system that their genetic encoding or DNA has been altered. They are holding information of different dimensions simultaneously within one focus. This is difficult to reconcile without further information. Therefore, belief systems are developed around this memory.

You also develop belief systems with regard to what you know and what you understand. You do not understand or hold objective knowledge of other existences physically which do not incorporate your DNA and RNA. Therefore, you develop belief systems which are built around known information within this dimension. You develop belief systems that suggest alteration of these molecules, for you cannot conceive of the lack of existence of these elements within physical manifestation, of what you term to be life within another dimension.

VICKI: Would the explanations of genetic encoding apply to animals?

ELIAS: Yes, and also your vegetation.

VICKI: But not something like a rock.

ELIAS: These do not hold the genetic encoding that you assign to what you designate as living tissue. You have created a different manifestation with different elements.” [session 176, May 25, 1997]

MARGOT: “I’d like to know why I chose the essence name of Jessele. I’d like to know about his name too. (Indicating Howard) Bosht? I guess that’s the way it’s said.

ELIAS: Bosht. I have explained previously that these are tones ...

MARGOT: Right. I understand that.

ELIAS: ... that you identify with. Generally speaking, not always but generally, as an essence fragments it may align with an aspect of tone held by the fragmenting essence. In this, they shall manifest their own tone which is the most pleasing to themselves. At times an essence may fragment, and within the new fragmentation it may choose an entirely different tone.

Tone is not the same as sound, although we may use sound as a comparison within your focus, as you understand this. Within your physical dimension, you may strike a note which holds a clear sound. Within this sound, there are many different sounds. Within this one note or tone, there are many different tones. In like manner, essence holds a tone which it has chosen for itself, and as it fragments, the fragmenting essence may choose an element of the tone that it identifies with the most within different aspects of the fragmenting essence, and it may choose to be creating of its own tone from this. Essentially, this is what you have created also.

You may also view this in your physical aspects of color, which also hold tone; this being why I distinguish to you that tone is not the same as sound. It is also not the same as color, but you may use these as examples to yourselves that you may identify with. You may choose the color of green, and there are numberless tones within this one color. If you are viewing one essence as the color green, it may fragment countless other essences. Each essence, as it is fragmented, may choose a different tone of this same green. It shall be slightly different from the fragmenting essence, but it shall also be similar.

In this, when physically manifest and also within consciousness, (although within consciousness it is not necessary ... you may place this in parentheses) you may hold a better ability to identify others physically manifest which may be fragmented of the same essence, for you hold similar tones. This is not to say that you may always be in appreciation of other individuals manifest with the same or similar tone and fragmented of the same essence, for you may in your view be manifest oppositely. Therefore, you may repel each other; but you shall also hold an identification, for you recognize the tone.

Within the translation into language words, the tone bears little resemblance. It is offered to each of you, for it is a fascination. Therefore, it is offered as a gift, as you appreciate this symbol of self. Within the physical word, it is not possible to offer you a true explanation and identification of this tone. I may express to you that you have chosen to align with the fragmenting essence and create a tone similar to that of the fragmenting essence, as many have fragmented of your essence and hold a similar tone to your essence. It is not often that a fragment may choose to be manifesting a tone which is far removed from the fragmenting essence.

MARGOT: ... In terminology that I have, I am acquainted with the term ‘twin soul’ or ‘soul flame,’ which speaks to a physical splitting that happened, from my understanding, so that the original essence could experience more. It has been my understanding in the past that I have this twin soul by the name of Lowell Thomas, who evidently, from what you said when I had Vic ask about this before, was very closely connected, not only to me but to Paul, who has occupied a lot of my thoughts since March. Can you give me not only an explanation of what I call ‘twin soul’ or ‘twin flame,’ but also clarify me a little on my connection to Paul, as I sensed it in March?

ELIAS: Of this other individual (Lowell) and yourself, you hold connection. (Pause) This shall be quite complicated and difficult to explain within your language and your understanding. (Pause)

First of all, this is a belief system, of this ‘twin soul,’ in the context that you are identifying with. There is in actuality what you may term as ‘twin souls’ or essence, but the identification is different. As to the connection of these three, (Margot, Lowell and Paul) one is fragmented of Paul. Now we enter into the complicated area! (Grinning) You are not fragmented of Paul, but you are intertwined within essence, within non-physical aspects, (pause) in such a manner that the essences may be almost indistinguishable.

This language poses great difficulty for explanation, for I mean not to mislead you in that you hold your own essence, your own identity, and your own tone; but there is an intertwining of these two essences, yourself and that of Patel (Paul.) This occurs within layers of consciousness that are non-physically focused.

There are aspects of all essences, including those essences which choose to be entering into physical focuses, that are also simultaneously non-physically focused. Within these areas, you may term these aspects of essences to be wider awarenesses. In these areas of consciousness, the definitions or distinctions between essences ... not between identities, but between essences ... become less clear.

In this, many essences holding similar intent and tone intermingle in like manner to vapors. If you are visualizing essence as a gaseous cloud, you may also visualize another essence as a different gaseous cloud which merges with the other. In this, you may still within chemical elements distinguish one cloud from the other in identification, although to your visual view they may become so intertwined as to lose definition, and you may not view any longer the boundaries of one to another. In like manner, these essences, within other areas of consciousness, are so intertwined. Therefore, there is also a close identification of those fragments which have been fragmented of this essence of Patel, which also offers you explanation further for your draw and your identification in familiarity with Olivia [Ron] and Lawrence [Vicki] and Michael [Mary].” (3) [session 177, May 30, 1997]

ELIAS: “And what is your inquiry?

NICKY: Like, so much, so much, and I really don’t know where to start. I guess I’m going to start with the name Candace. What is that representative of? What is it? What is a name?

ELIAS: I shall offer you brief information, and you may also acquire information which has been offered previously, which individuals connected with this forum may direct you to.

NICKY: Okay.

ELIAS: The name is a physical translation into your language. It is a tone which is held within essence. As you fragment and become your own essence, you choose a tone which symbolizes the entirety of your essence. This tone is held throughout all of your focuses, all of your manifestations.

NICKY: Really!

ELIAS: Therefore, all of your manifestations identify with this same tone, and you may be interchanging with them through this tone. This allows a familiarity between different focuses, which are all of the same essence.

... Okay, my daughter and I. Are we connected in any way other than in the physical manifestation, being mother and daughter? Is there any connection?

ELIAS: (Accessing) Both are fragmented of the same essence.

NICKY: Oh! Could you explain that just a little bit, just briefly? What does it mean to be fragmented of the same essence?

ELIAS: Each essence engages the action of fragmentation continuously.

NICKY: Okay.

ELIAS: Each essence fragments aspects of itself, which then create a new essence; this action within consciousness being similar to what you may physically identify as giving birth, although it is much more complicated than this action within physical focus; for one essence may fragment another essence, or many essences may collectively fragment another essence. It is dependent upon the desire of the essences and the aspects to be fragmented. In this situation, you have been fragmented of one essence. This other individual has also been fragmented of the same essence. You each hold your own essences. You are not of the same essence, but you have sprung from, so to speak, the same essence.” [session 181, June 05, 1997]

VICKI: “I have one more question regarding the information on genetics. I’m still confused and not clear about the cellular memory that we hold of other dimensional focuses, and what you were talking about a few weeks ago regarding if you fragment in this focus and it has something to do with another dimensional focus and it having something to do with the cellular memory. I’m so unclear I can’t even formulate the question, but I did go through that information again and I still don’t really understand what distinction you were making.

ELIAS: Interesting that you shall draw yourself to this particular questioning, as this particular questioning was to be addressed anyway for the benefit of all those, including Lawrence [Vicki], holding strong belief systems in regard to other dimensional focuses which bleed through to this dimensional focus; which you hold judgment upon information offered that you view to be indulgent of belief systems, which it is not! It is disagreeing with your belief systems, for you hold belief systems that these elements are false or non-existent.

This brings us to information offered to Dimin [Carole]. (Firmly) This is not indulgent information! This is accurate information. This individual is aware that within terminology of expressing irritating words of ‘star-borne’ that she is not born from a star but within another system of planetary rotation within another dimension, which has been stated within this forum, and has also been stated that this particular individual has fragmented within this dimension within this particular focus. Therefore, you may be gaining much information from elements of this individual, within an understanding of a different element of manifestation within your dimension presently.

This individual, as do many other individuals, holds memory of another dimension which the essence was focused within, and [was] not focused within this dimension until the action of fragmentation; which creates your firework effect (4), once again, into a new dimension. This individual fragmented into this dimension. The fragmenting essence held focuses within this dimension. This essence, in your terms, is a new essence, creating its initial entering focus with this individual which has already manifest. This is unusual. It is not rare, but it is unusual that any essence should fragment, within what you term to be the center of a particular physical focus, within a different dimension. Let me explain further for your clarification.

The essence has created its firework effect. It is dispersed within many, many dimensions physically focused. One focus, one focus within another dimension, not this dimension, is physically manifest. It is experiencing what you term to be its lifetime within another dimension. At mid-point, it is choosing within desire to be fragmenting from essence, creating new essence. Within the action of the fragmentation, it is merged with another aspect within another dimension, thrusting itself into physical dimension, physical focus, into this physical cycle. The aspect of the physical focus, from the original dimension of which we speak, has transferred to this dimension the whole of essence, [and] simultaneously has fractured into all of its sparkles of firework in many different dimensions. The aspect of consciousness known as the focus within one dimension continues physically within a different dimension. Therefore, the individual experiences a fragmenting or fracturing of memory within physical focus. They hold feelings of displacement.

These individuals also hold difficulty in acclimating to the new dimension. It is confusing to them, for the memory is held quite strongly and partially objectively of different dimension. This is no different than that of which we have spoken, of individuals who have acquired transplanted organs which hold physical memory and then incorporate action and desires in conjunction with the transplanted organs and their memory. There is no separation within essence. There is no separation within consciousness. Therefore, each aspect of essence is interchangeable. (Staring at Vic.)

VICKI: I need a cigarette!

DREW: Even among different essences they’re interchangeable?

ELIAS: We have spoken of this, and this would be a different action. Within essence, all of your focuses hold similar tone. Therefore, you may interchange with all of your different focuses; although be remembering, you may not assume another focus, for each focus is individual [and] holds personality and individual choices. Therefore, this was not an assumption of one focus into another. Within the action of fragmentation and entering into physical cycles of its own, within essence it created an exchange. The one focus did not assume the placement of the other focus. It created an exchange, just as you may exchange with alternates selves. This may be accomplished not temporarily. You may not assume another focus, but you may exchange with an alternate.

DREW: So I understand this. I think I understand this, but I’d like to rephrase it in terms that I understand a little better and make sure that I understand it the way you’re explaining it; that essence A, let’s say, has physical expression in many dimensions except for this one ...

ELIAS: No. It is holding expressions within this dimension. Essence B, which is the fragmented essence, is not holding aspects within this dimension.

DREW: Okay. Well, we just got our A’s and B’s switched.

ELIAS: Continue.

DREW: Okay. So B does not have any physical representation, if you will, in this dimension. And then through choice and agreement on a subjective level, B fragments one of its physical manifestations in one of its dimensions, and exchanges with a physical focus of A in this dimension?

GAIL: I thought it merged.

ELIAS: Merged.

DREW: Merged. Okay, it merges. So now let’s say this physical representation of A in this dimension is a 20-year-old woman. Are we talking about in mid-life this will happen to somebody? It’s not a new baby being born.

ELIAS: Correct.

DREW: So a woman or man or somebody at whatever age, this mergence takes place through agreement on a subjective level, but they can at some moments in the middle of their life suddenly have all of these strange and unaware feelings that they don’t understand because of this mergence of essence from another dimension? Hmmm ...

BOB: Is this now one essence or two? These two merge. At some point, they were separate. However, we understand that they were individual essences. When they merge, do they become one essence?

ELIAS: We are not speaking of the essence. We are speaking of the focus.

DREW: But focus is essence, isn’t it?

ELIAS: Yes; but for the purposes of your understanding, in the individual focus the essence has created an exchange of aspects and a mergence within one focus.

BOB: So two essences are partnering up on this one experience, in effect?

ELIAS: Within this one focus.

BOB: Holy shit! (Much laughter, and we all start talking at once.)

DREW: What would be the advantage ...

BOB: That could be a bit confusing!

DREW: What would be the advantage ... (Vic’s note: you’re SOL here, Drew!)

ELIAS: Quite!

VICKI: I think you need a cigarette too!

BOB: Huh? (We’re really cracking up now)

VICKI: Would you like a cigarette too?

BOB: I’ll take a joint if you have one! (Vic’s note: and we’ve all totally lost it. It’s been a while since we’ve had some real face-rubbing going on, but just wait! It gets better! You too can rub your face!)

ELIAS: Therefore, you may understand more effectively the confusion that arises within Dimin [Carole] and the reasoning for explanation to this individual. This is not a situation of placating or indulging! As Dimin [Carole] enters areas of strongly held belief systems within this dimension which pertain to this dimension, they are addressed. As Dimin [Carole] inquires of other-dimensional belief systems, these are reality. They do not fit within this dimension, which is expressed to this individual, but explanation is offered for lessening confusion within this individual.

Now; look to yourselves at your own confusion at the action of this essence! Therefore, now think of the confusion of the individual within the individual focus which has experienced this action. This, in many cases within your history, has caused effects within the individuals that you within your societies have classified as insanity.

... (Vic’s note: During the break, we had many different interpretations of the information offered regarding Carole and her fragmentation.)

ELIAS: Very well! (Laughter) Incorporate a pencil and a paper. And who shall be my artist for this evening?

VICKI: It looks like we’ve got three of them going here.

ELIAS: Upon your paper, at one side, draw a small circle. Extending from this circle, draw many spokes. Upon the other side of your paper, draw another small circle. Around each of these circles ... Oh. Spoke the second circle. Around each of these small circles you may create a bigger circle, which you may think of as a solar system.

RETA: Around both of them?

ELIAS: Each.

RETA: Around each.

ELIAS: Label the first small circle A. Label the second small circle B. A is an essence which has exploded in firework fashion, and one line of the spokes has attached to a point of the larger circle, any point shall do, which shall represent a planet within a solar system. Extend another line from essence A out to the solar system surrounding essence B. This signifies that essence A has focused within both solar systems, or two different physical dimensions.

Now; essence B is fragmented from essence A. It holds no focuses in any dimension, but it holds dimensional focuses, for it holds all the information of the fragmenting essence. The aspect which is focused from essence A in the first solar system as a focus is the desiring aspect of essence wishing to be fragmented, just as any of your focuses that you are aware of within this dimension may at any moment fragment into their own essence. This aspect fragments, becoming essence B. Essence B then transfers the aspect, which is extending from essence A to planet, and moves this to planetary system B. Its focus point, upon entering planetary system B or dimensional system, is the same coordinate point as essence A, which already occupies the point within solar system B.

Essence B may not assume the focus. Therefore, a mergence occurs between the existing focus of essence A and the newly established focus of essence B, which has moved from solar system A to solar system B, and as it merges an exchange is made; that essence B within the mergence shall assume the positioning of this focus within solar system B, allowing for an aspect of essence A to return to essence A within solar system A. Draw a line from the focus within solar system B back to essence A, and project this back to solar system A. Therefore, there is an exchange and a mergence which has occurred. (Vic’s note: oh, I get it now!)

RETA: What happens in an exchange?

ELIAS: The one essence has chosen to occupy the space arrangement. Therefore, the aspect remaining of the original essence returns to its original space arrangement.

RETA: Okay, so we need to draw a couple more arrows. He came back, and that would stay and exchange.

NORM: Yeah, right, and it merged.

ELIAS: Correct. Any focus may not assume another focus, but it may exchange space arrangement with another focus. In actuality, you may exchange with another of your focuses within this dimension if you are choosing. Within agreement, you may move into the space arrangement within the time framework of another focus, as the other focus exchanges and occupies your time framework and space arrangement.

NORM: Well, that would be neat!

ELIAS: This does occur. It does not occur frequently, in your terms, but it does occur. Example: Individuals experience an event. Within this event, individuals experience what you term to be amnesia. The individual experiences the scenario of complete amnesia. You shall find through investigation that this is rare, but occasionally it does occur. You shall attribute this to a traumatic event, and you shall explain the complete lack of physical memory by saying that damage or malfunction has occurred within the physical brain. In actuality, what has occurred is an exchange of focuses within space arrangement and time framework. The individual shall not physically remember any elements of the present lifetime, although they shall hold memory. The memory shall be foreign and unfamiliar. This is unexplained within your sciences, for they do not allow for unofficial information. As I have stated, this is not common, but it does occur.

GAIL: I have a question. When they exchange, do they exchange body experiences or ... I guess that’s my question. Do they exchange body experiences?

ELIAS: They exchange entirely.

GAIL: Oh. Well, what about like ...

ELIAS: The manifestation shall appear the same physically.

GAIL: Oh, okay.

ELIAS: There shall be alterations in chemical elements, but appearance-wise, they shall remain the same.

GAIL: Does the body experience feel different to them?

ELIAS: Slightly, for they have exchanged consciousness. But as I have stated, you may exchange, for you hold almost the same tone with all of your focuses. You may not assume another focus, but you may exchange with another focus.

NORM: So, much of the DNA in the non-physical part of the DNA information is similar.

ELIAS: Similar, but it shall change ...

NORM: And it will change!

ELIAS: ... for you are incorporating an exchange of a different focus.

VICKI: The DNA will change?


RETA: So the memory will change.


NORM: The non-physical part of the DNA.


VICKI: What about the physical part?

ELIAS: The physical aspects of the DNA shall remain the same and the appearance of the individual shall remain the same, although some chemical characteristics shall change.

VICKI: But that wouldn’t be obvious within a physical examination of the DNA?

ELIAS: Not completely. The sciences would be needing to be looking very closely, although in examining very closely they may view alterations that they may not explain.

RETA: What about those people that through therapy then do regain memory? It comes back to them in bits and pieces. Is this a re-exchange back? Some people continue with amnesia for the rest of their life, but some do get their memory back.

ELIAS: There are different situations within this action. It is dependent upon the individual focuses. Within some focuses, subsequent to an exchange they may incorporate a regaining of memory of the other focus, the original focus. Do not become confused! (Vic’s note: it’s a little late for that!)

You have the original focus. You have another focus. The original focus exchanges. The second focus engages with lack of memory, but at times it may begin to incorporate memory of the original focus, just as you may incorporate memory of your other focuses. This is not always the case within elements of short-term memory loss. It is not always a situation of exchange.

RETA: Would this be the same as people ... For instance, in childhood they have a traumatic event and they block it out from their mind completely because it was so hard on them. And then later in life they’ll remember that through some other event, and then in searching, it will be a part of them. Is this an amnesia effect, or is this just a blocking of memory?

ELIAS: This is not what you term to be amnesia. This would be a different situation.

NORM: Do they ever play ring-around-the-rosy, with all the focuses just hoppin’ around?

ELIAS: This may be chosen, although this would be rare!

GAIL: You’d have to be really bored!

BOB: And all this is for experience!


DREW: From a practical matter, if there is a complete change of focus, then there is also a change of personality.

ELIAS: To an extent, yes.

DREW: So if we interact with somebody we knew before the experience and after, we may very well notice differences in their personality.


DREW: Also, if a focus from the thirteenth century exchanges with what we consider a focus of the present now, what sort of acclimation problems must there be for that focus entering a completely different time element?

ELIAS: You are assuming that they are entering the different time element with complete objective memory, which they are not. Objectively, they are blank.

DREW: So everything is new to them.

ELIAS: Correct. They begin bleed-throughs of memory which may be completely out of context, in your terms, to their present time framework.

BOB: But the essence they merged with is still in touch with his or her own memories, so this merging essence is sort of going along for the ride.

ELIAS: We are not speaking of a mergence presently. We are speaking of an exchange.

BOB: So an exchange in the terms of a foreign exchange student ... one going to Europe and the other one coming here, and they’re both gone to the new place?

ELIAS: Quite.

BOB: So this person is blank objectively and is trying to function with no memory of anything? Does he know anybody or anything?

GAIL: Like amnesia. It’s already set.

BOB: Or even how to walk, for that matter?

ELIAS: Quite often, these individuals initially must be retrained to be physically functioning.

BOB: Of course, if they came from another dimension where things were entirely different!

ELIAS: This is not the same. We are speaking presently of individuals experiencing what you term to be amnesia. Within the exchange interdimensionally within fragmentation, there are allowances within essence to the new focuses. Therefore, their acclimation and confusion is not quite as great as the individual which is exchanging with another focus and incorporating what you term to be amnesia.

BOB: None of this is to say that there is not such a phenomenon as amnesia caused by getting smacked in the head. I mean, that still exists within this focus as an experience that is chosen, but that’s not necessarily an exchange with another focus.

ELIAS: Does it? (Grinning)

BOB: I don’t know! That’s what I’m asking! I mean, I got hit in the jaw when I was playing basketball in junior high school and lost short-term memory for, I don’t know, thirty minutes or so. Was I exchanging with another focus at that point?

ELIAS: No. Within very short-term memory loss, as you view this, this is merely a disorientation of physical expression. It is momentarily traumatized, in your terms. Therefore, it becomes confused. This is quite different from that which you would classify as amnesia.

BOB: It’s something that exists for an extended period of time ...

ELIAS: Quite.

BOB: ... and is not generally related to a physical blow.

ELIAS: It may be objectively related to an event; but consider, within your official guidelines of your officially accepted reality, you may not merely exchange with another focus at will with no outward sign of some unusual happening.

BOB: So I would have to create some sort of an event in order to accomplish the exchange.

ELIAS: You do not have to, but you do, to be fitting within your official reality. Therefore, you create an event which may be objectively viewed, and within this you may create your exchange quite neatly without questioning.” [session 182, June 08, 1997]

STELLA: “It’s good to see you, Elias. Good to hear you! I don’t see you, I hear you. I’m going to start, and what I wanted to know, which is uppermost in my mind, is what is my connection, let’s say, with ... I’ve brought some friends with me, Letty, Marcos, Norma, and what is my connection mostly with Letty? I feel very close. Can you tell me anything about the relationship, the connection?

ELIAS: (Accessing) This being a connection within essence, within the action of fragmentation. Within certain aspects of the action of fragmentation, many times essences may be fragmenting elements of that essence, creating new essences within agreement, and they may be paralleling each other within consciousness. This is not to say that these manifestations of essences within physical focus may completely parallel each other within a given focus, but within tone and within essence and intent, they quite parallel each other. This would be the action that you engage with this individual. You are both fragmented of the same essence. You incorporate your own essences, each, but you hold similar fragmentation from the same essence. In this, you also within consciousness parallel each other, therefore drawing to each other quite strongly within an identification of this connection within consciousness.

Also within this situation, individual essences are choosing to be manifest in many focuses together. Therefore, you hold many manifestations with each other within different roles of interaction; not always manifesting in the same relationship, but in many different types of relationships. Lawrence [Vicki] and Michael [Mary] also ...

STELLA: Who is Lawrence [Vicki]? (Vic points to herself)

ELIAS: ... engage a similar action, in that they manifest within many focuses physically together. Their connection is different within essence, but they also engage this same action of physical manifestation within many different relationships. This would be your explanation of your draw to each other, and your feeling or sensing within you of a connection within consciousness that extends beyond only this physical focus.

LETTY: Does that mean also that it could be that we have been in previous lives? (To clarify: in Elias’ terms, a focus is a lifetime)

ELIAS: Quite. Yes.

STELLA: Does that mean with Marcos also, or is this just with Letty? Or have we all been together somewhere?

ELIAS: (Accessing) This individual holds a different action in connection with you. This is not a connection within the action of fragmentation and parallel essences. This would be a connection within also many shared focuses.

As to your questioning of your connections with you all: As I have expressed, individuals within focuses, as an action of essence, are choosing within particular dimensions to be manifesting in groups. Therefore, within your concept of remanifestation, you accomplish this in connection with the same individuals within many, many focuses. Your relationships change and your interaction may be different for your roles are different, but you shall for the most part remanifest within interaction of the same individuals many times.

This would not be only the situation of a limited amount of individuals, such as those which you refer to within these four; for as you recognize that you draw yourselves to this forum now, you shall also be presented with individuals that you have manifest with previously. You may manifest within an individual focus and you may not objectively interact with individuals that you experience other focuses with until you have accomplished, in your terms, half or more of your physical focus. It is dependent upon the choices and the probabilities which are actualized.” [session 187, June 28, 1997]

JAN: “Is there anything specific with a particular individual – I guess perhaps I’ve already asked this really – in another focus? Are there ever any essences that there’s an extremely strong connection with in this focus? I’m really not sure how to ask what I’m saying. Sorry, Elias!

ELIAS: Certain individuals do hold very strong connections with each other dependent upon their interaction, and also at times dependent upon their fragmentation or their counterpart action with another individual and the amounts of counterpart actions that they choose to be creating with the same individual.

Therefore, in this you hold very strong connections with both of your parents, but in different capacities; for within the role of the father, you hold the action of counterparts within many focuses. Therefore, this is influencing. Within the relationship of mother, you are fragmented of the same essence as your mother. Therefore, you hold very strong connection with this individual also. Within the direction of your partner, you have experienced several focuses with this individual; one focus presently not within this dimension, although this may be a little difficult for your partner to be accepting of! (Laughter) In this, as I have stated, bleed-throughs of other focuses are occurring, and you are now barely beginning to be allowing of this. As you are widening your awareness and allowing yourself an openness, this shall increase and you shall understand more clearly.” [session 219, September 17, 1997]

MARGOT: “In July, I had Vic ask you about something I had been told once a long time ago, and that’s if other people that I know and love, who also have the middle name of Rose as I do, were fragments of my essence, and you said, ‘No; focuses.’ So I’m here to ask: My granddaughter Jennifer Rose, is she a focus of mine? (In Elias’ terms, a fragment is a new essence with a new personality tone)

ELIAS: Correct.

MARGOT: Okay. How about my Aunt Rose, my mother’s good friend? I got that name after her.

ELIAS: Correct.

MARGOT: That’s a focus of mine??

ELIAS: Correct.

MARGOT: It’s giving me chills! Dixie Rose, my very close friend and who I think I have counterpart action with?


MARGOT: No? Yes? (Elias shakes his head) No. Okay. Now when I disengage, it’s up to my focuses to decide whether to fragment or to also disengage, and here I have my little granddaughter Jennifer Rose who is probably about twelve years old right now! That will be her choice?

ELIAS: It is a choice.

MARGOT: I guess I’ve got to live a really long time! (Laughter)

ELIAS: Not necessarily! It is a choice.

MARGOT: A choice. Okay ...

ELIAS: And this individual may be choosing to be fragmenting.

MARGOT: Okay, I won’t worry about it!

ELIAS: Very good! (Laughter) It is not an automatic action!” [session 241, November 22, 1997]

DAVID: “So with regards fragmentation, supposing I met somebody who was an aspect of Mylo [David] and I was drawn to them sexually. That is possible, to have like a sexual encounter with your own essence, so to speak?

ELIAS: Essence incest! (Laughter)

DAVID: It happens, yeah?

ELIAS: Quite!” [session 255, January 04, 1998]

MICHAEL: “Alright, my next one was that me and my mother have been going back and forth. We have a little bit of confusion on the differences between a fragment and an aspect, like what they are. (5)

ELIAS: Aspects are all elements of yourself within all areas of consciousness, within all dimensions. You hold countless aspects. In the like manner that you within this particular physical focus may express countless thoughts which project from you and are elements of you, you also hold countless you’s within this particular dimension and also within other dimensions. These are all aspects of self.

A fragment is a very different definition. A fragment is that element – that personality element – of an essence which chooses to be fragmented in becoming its own essence, new to itself, in what you may term to be apart from an original essence, although I shall be reminding you that some of these terms are figurative, for there is no original essence and there is no separation. Therefore, you are not splitting apart from something; but a fragment is the development of a new personality essence of energy that is unique to itself and also holds all of the information of all that has preceded it, so to speak.

MICHAEL: Okay. So then the essence that is fragmented shares one of the same personalities as the essence it was fragmented from, correct?

ELIAS: It shares qualities. It holds its own personality, its own tone, but it holds the qualities and all of the information of the fragmenting essence.” [session 279, May 12, 1998]

MIKE: “My mom and I were talking the other day and we thought it awkward that between me and her, we’ve found just about every connection that we have with everyone else but me and her. So now I’m asking, what is the connection between me and my mother, besides many focuses spent together?

ELIAS: This would be the connection that you have chosen to be creating. As I have expressed to you earlier within this session, this would be the objective manifestation that essences participate within, in what you term to be your knowing of your connections.

MIKE: So, like fragment-wise, are we of like of the same essence? Or is one of us from the other? I’ve got many impressions with this. I don’t even know where to begin with this one.

ELIAS: You are not fragmented of each other, so to speak. One of you is not fragmented from the other essence, although if you are speaking in linear terms, I may express to you that you may trace the fragmentation to a common fragmentation at one point, but this is figuratively speaking, for all of this action occurs simultaneously. Therefore, it is difficult for your comprehension within physical focus to be understanding the action of fragmentation, and that all of the experiences and information held within one essence is also held within the fragmented essence. Therefore, you hold much information within essence as one is fragmented of another, and that essence is fragmenting of other essences, and those essences are fragmenting of other essences. Are you understanding?

MIKE: A little bit. So are you saying that we fragmented from the same essence?

ELIAS: (Sighing) In a manner of speaking, at one point.

MIKE: At one point. Okay. Now, backing up a little bit, am I a fragment of yours?


MIKE: No. Well, what essence am I a fragment of then?

ELIAS: This essence would be unfamiliar to you, but I shall offer to you that you have been fragmented of an essence which translates in your language into the tone of (pause) Zolar.

MIKE: Zolar?

ELIAS: Correct.

MIKE: Oh, wow! Okay. Alright, then my next question along those lines is, what essence is my mother, Rico, and my sister fragmented from? Because you said that they’re fragmented of the same essence.

ELIAS: (Accessing) This would be fragmentation of another essence within the family of Sumafi, which would translate into the tone, within your language, of Lezbae.

MIKE: Mezay?

ELIAS: Lezbae. L-E-Z-B-A-E.

MIKE: Wow! Okay, what family does Zolar belong to? Sumafi also?

ELIAS: Yes. These are not essences that are participating within this particular energy exchange, but they are essences which are within the family of Sumafi.

MIKE: Okay, so both are. My mom’s question I would imagine would be, why is she Sumari then? ’Cause I think I read in a transcript that you said it is not common for fragmented essences to change families.

ELIAS: But it is also a choice.

MIKE: Right, it’s a choice, but....

ELIAS: I am not....

MIKE: How would she go about investigating the choice?

ELIAS: By connecting with self and essence. Each essence which is fragmented holds the choice of its family and alignment. Therefore, it is not a rule that the fragmented essence shall be of the same essence family as the fragmenting essence.” [session 290, June 25, 1998]

MARGOT: “Do splinters retain the same tone as the essence?

ELIAS: As they are continuing to be a splintered aspect, yes, they shall hold the same or figuratively the same tone as essence, for you hold an awareness that each aspect of essence holds a very slight difference in the aspect of the tone of essence. But overall or generally speaking, yes, they do hold the same tone as essence.

Now; if they are choosing to be fragmenting, their tone would then be altered.” [session 306, August 09, 1998]

JEN: “… I listened to the tape from my sister and I, and we talked a little bit about fragments being energy fragments. Am I saying that right? If ANON and I are fragments of the same essence, is there a ‘master essence’ from which we are fragmented?

ELIAS: This would not be termed to be what you are expressing as a ‘master essence,’ so to speak. Let me express that this is a natural action that all essences engage within, this action of fragmentation. All essences are fragmenting of other essences continually. It is a natural cycle that essences engage. It is also what you may term to be an agreement, for there are aspects of the essence that choose to be fragmented, and within agreement the essence is ‘fragmenting away,’ so to speak, these aspects.

If you allow yourself the thought process within physical focus, you may image to yourself your form and all of the aspects of you that make up you as you know yourself, all of your consciousness. And in this, imaging yourself as the essence, the whole of essence, figuratively speaking, were you to move into the direction of recognizing and knowing all of the aspects of yourself that are the makeup of yourself, one aspect of you may be expressing to you a desire to become another form independent of its own.

Let us use emotions for an example. Let us express that you, knowing all of your emotions well as aspects of yourself, recognize one emotion, (pause, struggling for words) one emotion of expression. (Vic’s note: I think this is supposed to be ‘one expression of emotion.’) Let us designate the expression of laughter, which is attached to an emotion of happiness.

Within this one expression of laughter, let us designate this as an aspect of yourself. In this aspect, you as the whole of essence recognize that this is an aspect of yourself, not merely an expression. In this, this aspect expresses a desire to be its own full expression of self. Therefore, within agreement, you fragment this aspect of yourself. This is not to say that you may not be creating of the expression of this aspect in a continued expression within yourself, but that you allow this aspect of laughter to become its own essence. Therefore, it shall move from you, in physical terms, and be creating of another individual that may physically stand before you.

In figurative terms, this would be an action of yourself standing, expressing agreement that this aspect of laughter become its own individual, and this aspect moving out from your physical form and creating another physical form before you visually, as solid as yourself and holding the ability now, independent of you, to be creating of its own choices and directions, but continuing to hold all of the elements of you, for it is projected from you. In this, it holds all of the same qualities that you hold, but now it is creating of its own directions and its own choices, therefore creating an independent difference from yourself.

This would be a visualization that may be likened to the action of fragmentation, and within essence, essences are creating of this action continuously, fragmenting elements of themselves into new essences which continue within their own individuality and tone. Therefore, as this is a continual process, so to speak, or action that is created, there is no one ‘master essence’ that is fragmenting of other essences. It is merely an action that all essences participate in.

You and Miora [ANON] merely have been fragmented aspects from the same essence. In this, you hold very many similarities in tone, for you both hold all of the qualities and all of the aspects of the fragmenting essence. You now move in the direction of creating your own choices and your own directions, but within remembrances of essence you hold the same qualities, for you also hold the same tone of the fragmenting essence, in difference to another essence which may be fragmented from a different essence.

JEN: But not the same family?

ELIAS: This is your choice. Each essence, once fragmented and created anew into its own essence, holds its own independent choice to be belonging to and aligning with any given family of consciousness. Be remembering also that within each focus, you are aligning with different families. You do not align with the same family within each focus that you physically manifest.” [session 308, August 21, 1998]

VIVIEN: “Okay, and the other question I would like, which essence am I fragmented from? (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence fragmentation would be that extended of mergence from the essences of Kal, Mystof, Jacob, and Alice.

VIVIEN: That’s a just slew of them!

ELIAS: Correct.

VIVIEN: How interesting! Is that normal?

ELIAS: This is quite common, that an essence may be fragmented of several essences. As essences merge together, they may be fragmenting of new essences that may hold qualities which are created by the mergence of these several essences.

VIVIEN: Oh, okay. Interesting! I didn’t realize that. Thank you.

ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 382, April 12, 1999]

MIKE: “Between the lineage of my fragmentation, is there a long lineage from my essence to a Dream Walker?

ELIAS: This is linear terms that you are speaking within. I express to you that this is not necessarily relevant, for all essences are not separated, and it is not an action of linear movement. One is not necessarily begotten of another in linear fashion. It is a mergence and an emergence that is occurring continuously, and there is no distance from one essence to another essence.

MIKE: Well, I meant like essences fragmented, like between Mary and a Dream Walker there’s like four essences that were fragmented and whatsuch. That’s what I meant. (Elias is grinning) (6)

ELIAS: I am quite understanding of your meaning, Mikah [Michael], and I am also expressing to you that this is linear terms. Even within the term that you express with Michael [Mary] and the fragmentations, this is placing, in a manner of speaking, a linear motion to the action of fragmentation. It has been offered in this manner merely figuratively, as an expression that may be understood in the idea of fragmentation, for this is a very difficult concept.

But in the expression that you are requesting, I shall offer to you, in indulgence, now having qualified that in actuality it is figurative and is not necessarily relevant, I shall express to you that you may identify nine fragmentations, in a manner of speaking, ... between your essence and the Dream Walker essence.

MIKE: Okay. Now, is that including the merged essences? I mean, like that’s three right there, so....


MIKE: Why did I say three? I don’t know how many merged.

ELIAS: No. This would not be including all....

MIKE: Are you counting them as one?

ELIAS: Yes, for this is one action.” [session 388, April 27, 1999]

GARY: “I’ve got a question. When you were talking with my wife, Meira, you mentioned that she is fragmenting. I’d like to get more information on that. I don’t quite understand what you meant.

ELIAS: Fragmentation is a continuous action that occurs within essence. This is a natural action in which one or more essences may participate. In this action, what is occurring is, an element of any particular essence – or an element of many essences combined – may choose, through its desire, to become a new essence.

This, as I have stated, is a continuous process, so to speak. In like manner to your action of cell division within physical focus, essences are continuously fragmenting.

Now; at times, two or more essences may merge together, and within that mergence, there may be created a combined quality of those essences that chooses, through its desire, to be its own individual essence, and within agreement, there is what is created to be a fragmentation process, so to speak.

Now; I am speaking to you presently within the context of your linear terms, for within consciousness, this is a spontaneous and immediate action. There is no actual process that occurs. But within the terms of your linear time framework and your understanding within physical focus, in your reality, you lengthen every action.

You slow all of the actions that occur within consciousness. You create a time framework in conjunction with every action that you choose to be creating, and in that, you create a process. The explanation for fragmentation in itself creates a process.

The action of fragmentation is instantaneous. The definition or the explanation of fragmentation creates a movement of a process.

In this, as several essences merge together and are overlapping within consciousness, the combination of those essences – which is occurring in this situation – creates new qualities, for it is a combining of different qualities within different essences; different attributes which are expressed, not necessarily latent.

GARY: You’re talking about essences that we would not recognize as physical. It would be nonphysical entities involved.

ELIAS: Correct ... correct.

Now; in this action, certain qualities of those essences may hold a desire to be expressing themselves and exploring avenues of consciousness within their own direction and design, and therefore, there is a desire to be fragmented and to be creating of a new essence which shall choose its independent, in a manner of speaking, direction of movement.

Now; at times, an individual focus of one essence may choose to be fragmenting. In this type of situation, essences focus their attention in many, many different areas simultaneously, and in each focus of attention, there is expressed unique qualities and individual directions. Each focus holds its individual ability to be creating its own choices.

GARY: Are you talking about something in the medical profession that we call multiple personality disorders?

ELIAS: No. I am speaking of essences. Each essence holds many, many, many focuses, that which you term to be lifetimes.

GARY: Lifetimes, okay.

ELIAS: I express these to be focuses for the reason that the designation of a lifetime, in our terms, is the entire experience that you engage within a designated physical dimension. Focuses are all of the different attentions within that physical dimension, but they are all aspects of the same essence.

Now; in this, each focus holds its own unique qualities, its own ability to be creating its own choices and free will. Therefore, it is the director of its own composition.

GARY: So you’re saying possibly that many different, say, parts of herself, focused in different lives of either this time or at other times, would be affected by this simultaneously, and then choose to react to it in its own way? Would that be....

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes.

All of your focuses of essence are occurring simultaneously. You within this reality view your focuses to be occurring linearly. Therefore, you view them as lifetimes; past, present and future. In actuality, within consciousness, they are all now.

In this, you are you, and you are your essence, and you hold the totality of your essence.

Simultaneously, what you would identify as a past life is you, but is not you, for it holds its individual qualities and choices and free will, and it is its own director of its composition, in like manner to you. You are all affecting of each other, for you all are one essence.

Within you, you hold all of the qualities and attributes of all of the other focuses of essence, but they are not expressed within your individual reality, for this is the point of a focus.

A focus is a direction of attention. Therefore, in like manner to yourselves within this particular focus – or what you term to be a lifetime – you may concentrate your attention in one area, and this shall block much of the activity that occurs simultaneously within your reality. But within your perception, you shall view where you hold your attention.

You may physically be occupying a very busy city, and you may be standing upon a very busy corner within your very busy city, and you may be focusing your individual attention, in the midst of all of the activity and action that is occurring about you, upon reading a book, and you shall block all of the stimulus and all of the information and all of the recognition of all of the activity that surrounds you, for your attention is focused upon the book.

Even your physical senses shall block information. Your physical hearing, your sight, your smell, your touch, your taste, shall block all input, for you focus your attention very intently in one direction, and in that action, you are creating a very similar action to the action of essence and focuses.

Each focus holds a direct stream of attention in one area. Therefore, your perception is that you hold one body, that you occupy one time framework, that you occupy one physical location, that you move physically from one location to another, that you move within a time framework.

These are all of the elements that you create in focusing your attention singularly in one specific direction. This is a focus. This is what you are creating within your attention presently.

You express to me a greeting and the identification of your name, which is Gary, correct? You express to me, this is you. This is your identification of yourself, and you view yourself to be one singular entity, one male individual. I express to you that this is merely a perception of attention.

In this, your attention focuses a projection into a specific area of physical reality which creates physical matter in conjunction with linear time, and in this creation, your attention moves you throughout this focus and allows you to experience and notice all that you create and all that you encounter and draw to yourself in conjunction with your creations, but it is very singularly focused. Simultaneously, in this one focus’s attention, there are myriads of other focuses of attention.

Now; essence is not an entity which encompasses you. It is not an entity which surrounds you. You are not one being, one focus which is one individual being. Essence is not a container holding hundreds of little balls which are all of the beings of the essence, and these are all of the focuses of essence. No.

GARY: I think what you’re saying hits me now because ... I have a friend who’s a priest, and at times when I’ve done my meditation and relaxed, I suddenly got the feeling that I was him. I’m not sure if that was a legitimate feeling or not, but I just got the sense that he was just another version of me.

ELIAS: This is your engagement of your empathic sense. This is a different action. This is your allowance, within your physical attention within this focus, to be merging your consciousness with the consciousness of another individual and therefore experiencing the other individual and their experience, in like manner to how you experience your own experience.

Now; this is a different type of action, but this is also the reason that I am quite encouraging of individuals within physical focus to be engaging their empathic sense, for this offers you an objective physical validation and example of your abilities. It also moves in conjunction with your conceptual sense, and offers you more of an objective understanding of what you are.

GARY: And also how confusing and complex reality is! (Laughing)

ELIAS: It is quite intricate!

In this, as we return to the analogy of the bowl and all of the balls within the bowl, which are all of your focuses of essence, we shall turn this analogy, and I shall express that the bowl is in actuality within the ball.

And in this, you may also express to yourselves, as I have offered previously, it is the same as you would identify within your musical compositions. All of the notes within your musical compositions create the musical composition, but the musical composition is not the musical composition without the notes.

What I am expressing to you is that you ARE essence.

Although I express to you that you are a focus of essence, for the attention of essence is focused in this particular reality, you are no less essence than you are yourself reading your book. You are no less you, merely that you focus your attention reading your book within the midst of your very busy city.

The city continues to be within existence, and it continues to be within YOUR existence, and you continue to be within that reality, but you are not participating in your attention. You are physically participating, but your attention is not participating in all of that reality.

GARY: But some part of us is.

ELIAS: Quite, and in this, in like manner, you ARE essence, and your attention is focused in many different areas, and it is occurring all simultaneously.

Now; in our scenario of your book and your attention within your busy city, within a moment, hypothetically or figuratively speaking, let us express that you choose in that moment to be creating a clone of yourself whose attention shall continue within the direction of the book, and you shall move throughout your day and you shall allow your attention to move into other directions, and the attention that was focused upon the book continues, for you have cloned this you, and you have allowed this you its own existence.

Now; it may choose to continue to be focusing its attention upon the book, for it holds an interest in the book, or it may become distracted and it may choose to move its attention into a different direction. This is the choice of the clone, for it now may create its own choices. This is a similar action to fragmentation.

There is a desire for the attention to continue reading the book. Therefore you, in agreement with that desire, express, ‘Very well. Continue reading the book, and I shall project myself from myself, and you may continue to be reading the book, and I shall continue in directing my attention as I choose ...

FEMALE: Yeah, but....

ELIAS: ... in not reading the book.’

FEMALE: Alright, but now the clone decides to do something else, and you wanted him to read the book.


FEMALE: Now when he doesn’t finish, do you create another clone to keep reading the book?

ELIAS: It is not a question of what you WANT the clone to be accomplishing. It is the desire of the clone!

FEMALE: Yes, but once the clone goes away from reading the book....

ELIAS: It matters not what it chooses to be creating!

FEMALE: Well, that’s fine. He’s off by himself. But now, you made the clone in the first place ...

ELIAS: Correct.

FEMALE: ... because you wanted it to continue to read the book.


FEMALE: Oh, you didn’t want it to continue to read the book?

ELIAS: No. Your attention wished or expressed a desire to be continuing to read the book.

YOU are not expressing that you wish to be creating an element that shall continue to read the book. The element that IS reading the book is expressing a desire to continue creating that reality, and you are within agreement, and therefore there is an action in which you create the clone.

The desire is expressed, figuratively speaking, in the part of the FRAGMENTED essence. The fragmenting essence or essences are merely expressing agreement. The desire for a particular direction is expressed by the quality of essence which is being created, and this moves into the direction of fragmentation.

This, as I have stated, is a CONTINUOUS action which occurs within essence, that you are continuously becoming, and therefore you are continuously creating and you are continuously exploring, and there is continuous desire which is being expressed, and therefore, you also are continuously fragmenting! (Laughter)

LIDIA: Is this similar to probable selves?

ELIAS: No. This is....

LIDIA: The process is not similar.

ELIAS: No. This is a different action.

GARY: What you were saying, was that an analogy? Because I see it as a fitting analogy maybe for how we create individual focuses in different lives, and I’m a little confused whether you’re talking about that sort of general process, or what is actually happening within a particular individual focused right now in a physical body.

ELIAS: It may be both! (Grinning)

GARY: Uh-huh! (Laughing)

FEMALE: It’s like when you fall in love with somebody, when your essences kind of merge, and your attention can shift, and you create a new person, the person you’re in love with or ... (inaudible).

ELIAS: Conceptually speaking. This is an element of your belief systems. In actuality, you may be creating an interconnectedness objectively with another individual within physical focus, and you may engage intensity in emotion with that individual, and you may recognize different types of interconnectedness that you hold with that individual physically, in respect to other focuses and connections that you hold within other areas of consciousness.

But in actuality, you are not creating of another being, even as you are merging together in your creations of matrimony – or what you within physical reality term to be commitment in relationship – and creating of a child. You are not creating of that child. It is not an element of you. It is not a product of you. Your participation in that action is merely an agreement to be facilitating the action of an entering focus, a new manifestation of another essence, but this is all that you hold in responsibility in that action.

You have merely created an agreement to offer the facilitation for entrance into physical manifestation ... ONLY. Beyond this is the creation of your belief systems. What you attach to any action beyond this one action is a creation of your beliefs. This is your ONLY agreement and responsibility.

LIDIA: Can I clarify that fragmentation is a creation of a new essence as opposed to a new focus?

ELIAS: Correct.

LIDIA: I gotcha, okay.

ELIAS: You are correct.

LIDIA: That’s why it is not a probable self.

ELIAS: Correct.

A focus may choose to become an essence. A focus – an individual focus – may hold the desire to become its own essence, and within that action, it shall create its own focuses.

JOANNE: I hold interest in that ... a lot of interest in that! You said this is something that I can decide to do objectively?

ELIAS: As you are moving into the action of this shift and as you allow yourselves to widen your awareness and open your objective awareness within consciousness, yes, you may choose objectively to be creating of this type of action.

Now; I shall also express to you that within this action, the most probable probability ...

JOANNE: Oh no! I’m not doing it! (Laughter)

ELIAS: ... is that you shall not necessarily choose to be creating of that action, merely for the reason that it is unnecessary. You are continuously fragmenting within essence. Therefore, this action is CONSTANTLY occurring, and within individual focuses, it generally speaking is unnecessary to be creating of that action.

But I shall express to you that this does occur, and certain focuses do choose to be fragmented. This action occurs more frequently if you are not a final focus. If you are not the designation of a final focus, this choice becomes a presentment to you at the disengagement of the final focus. Therefore, the other focuses of essence more commonly will be fragmenting as the final focus disengages, for many focuses choose not to be disengaging involvement and exploration within physical dimensions.

JOANNE: Well, I didn’t know if I was going to focus here. I just wanted to be in control ...

ELIAS: Ah! (Grinning)

JOANNE: ... and focus wherever I decided to focus! (Laughing)

ELIAS: Ah, but you already accomplish this!

JOANNE: Well, yeah. I’m already focusing in other dimensions. I just haven’t caught up to that yet. (Laughter)

ELIAS: Your question was, shall you hold the ability to OBJECTIVELY be creating of this action and choose, and this is the question that I am addressing to. Yes, within the action of this shift and as you widen your awareness objectively, you shall allow yourselves the ability to be creating that choice objectively.” [session 486, October 16, 1999]

ERIC: “Elias, can you re-familiarize me with my essence name, family and alignment? (Pause)

ELIAS: We shall be offering this information futurely, for there is fluctuation in this essence mergence presently, and in this, the aspect of essence which projects attention into this focus may be affected in an area of fragmentation, but this choice has not been created yet.

In conjunction with that action occurring and the probability of the creation of new tone, I shall offer the information to you subsequent to the disengagement of this action of fragmentation.

This creates much less confusion (laughter) than the offering of different essence names and families temporarily that may re-present themselves futurely, and our scribe encounters much less frustration and conflict!” (7) [session 502, November 11, 1999]

ELIAS: “Good day!

GEORGE: Yes. (Elias chuckles) Elias?


GEORGE: Oh, it’s a pleasure to speak to you. Do you know who I am?


GEORGE: Who am I?

ELIAS: Ha ha ha!

GEORGE: (Laughing) What’s my essence name?

ELIAS: Essence name, Joffree; J-O-F-F-R-E-E. (jof’free)

GEORGE: Oh, that’s very interesting. And my family and alignment?

ELIAS: Essence family, Tumold; alignment, Ilda.

GEORGE: And my orientation? (Short pause)

ELIAS: Orientation in this focus, common.

GEORGE: ... I want to ask you, when I asked you for my essence name and family and alignment and orientation, I had that already from another person who asked you about me, and mainly I wanted to verify it, and also I wanted to hear the pronunciation of my essence name. But the information you gave me is all different. (8)

ELIAS: This is not an unusual situation. Let me express to you also, essences are continuously in motion and engaging actions of mergence with other essences, and as this action occurs, many times there are actions created that initiate fragmentation, and as these essences merge together, the fragmenting essence may be a combination of qualities and tones of those essences which are within mergence.

At the particular time framework in which an individual may be inquiring of essence names and families, the particular essence in question may not be experiencing this type of mergence or may not be fragmenting in that moment. Therefore, there is offered the existing essence name and families.

GEORGE: I see.

ELIAS: But within a different time framework, the essence may be engaged in this type of action and it may be affecting of a particular focus. It also may NOT be affecting at times of any particular focus which is being inquired of. Therefore, the essences may be engaging this action, but it is not altering of the essence name or families of the individual within physical focus.

In this situation, the alteration of tone is affecting of the essence that you are.

GEORGE: Then should I consider myself to be the family and alignment you just gave me, and forget about the previous one? Because previously it was Borledim and Milumet, but now it’s Tumold and Ilda.

ELIAS: Correct. This is the action which has been chosen of the essence that you are.

In this, what I am expressing to you is that within your linear time framework previously, you – as you identify yourself as a focus of essence – were the essence offered, and in that, the focus which you identify as you was of that family and aligned with that other family in this focus. As the alteration in tone occurs and the family that the essence is choosing to be belonging to alters, the alignment many times may also be altered.

This may be quite purposeful within THIS time framework more so than other time frameworks within your dimension, for it allows for more of an expression in conjunction with this shift in consciousness.” [session 504, November 19, 1999]

HOWARD: “Can I segue to a twin soul aspect?

ELIAS: You may.

HOWARD: Speaking of logic, I was told – and I know how you are probably smiling a great deal right now – that Ayn Rand was my twin soul. This was some time ago, when I understood twin souls being an essence splitting back at some point in time so that they could experience the same thing differently.

It has since come up several times that – and Margot has even suggested that Ayn Rand is a focus of mine and I have said that she’s a focus of Ayn Rand – but in terms of perceptions, I guess, feelings, getting back to that again, Margot strikes me as being more of my twin soul because we’re so compatible yet differently living, perceiving, than Ayn would be. So I guess the question is probably more like, are we of the same essence, Ayn and myself, or are we...?

ELIAS: I may express to you, Bosht [Howard], there is a difference of expression concerning what may be associated as twin souls and what you term to be soul mates. As you are aware, I have expressed that you do incorporate many soul mates, but at times you allow yourselves to incorporate a continuous or constant interaction and mergence with particular soul mates and resonate with that essence. You and Giselle [Margot] express this type of action.

That which you identify as twin souls you have correctly identified. This is an expression in which one essence chooses to be fragmenting into two essences.

Now; not necessarily to be generating similar experiences in different manners, but creating two essences that incorporate almost – almost – the same qualities. Your physical incorporation of identical twins within your physical dimension is a physical reflection of that type of action within essence.

Now; as you view the physical incorporation of manifestation, only the physical aspect, you may view that the beginning of the physical manifestation is incorporated by one entity, that which you express as one egg, which splits and becomes two.

Now; beyond that expression, these two physical twins may or may not be the same essence, and I may express to you, generally speaking, for the most part they are not the same essence. But the physical manifestation is a clear reflection of what occurs within consciousness concerning twin essences. They are initially fragmented as one and choose to split and become two from the one.

HOWARD: And I agree with that. That was the way I understood it from the beginning. So, would Ayn Rand be this... Is that where this was coming from? Is that what the channeler was seeing, our fragmentation of one essence to two?

ELIAS: In association with yourself and Giselle [Margot]?

HOWARD: No, with myself and Ayn Rand.

ELIAS: Ah! (Pause) No, but I am understanding of the distortion, for these are fragmented of the same essences.

HOWARD: All right. That’s good to know.” [session 1018, February 25, 2002]

DON: “Recently you mentioned in a session that there can be a temporary mergence between essences.

ELIAS: Correct, and this is quite common.

DON: What does it mean to say that the mergence is temporary, given that this mergence occurs outside of the time of our physical dimension?

ELIAS: As opposed to an action of fragmentation.

DON: Ah, that’s what I thought. Do you have more to say about that or is that sufficient at this point?

ELIAS: The action of fragmentation is such that the essence that fragments incorporates qualities, experiences and tones of the essence that it has fragmented from and that becomes what you would term to be a permanent incorporation. Whereas, in mergence with another essence, the essences experience each other but do not necessarily incorporate each other’s qualities or incorporate all of the experiences. Are you understanding?

DON: I think so.

ELIAS: Let me also express to you, this is a limited explanation and one that may be viewed as figurative, not quite literal, for that would be a distortion. I am expressing to you an explanation in association with what you know and understand in relation to your physical dimension.

DON: I can feel a conceptualization...


DON: ...of it, but it’s difficult to put into words.

ELIAS: Correct, for within your objective awareness you may generate an understanding of what I am expressing in relation to nonphysical expressions and consciousness and essence, but that is not quite translatable accurately within your objective understanding or language.

DON: ... I mentioned I had two impressions of my own fragmentation, the fragmentation that gave rise to my essence. The other was that Ayla (9) and I had some fragmentation relationship. Is that a valid impression or a correct impression? (Pause)

ELIAS: In what capacity?

DON: Well, given that I did not fragment from Ayla, I wonder if I was involved in the fragmentation that gives rise to her essence.

ELIAS: No, but there has been many expressions of mergences.

DON: I get the sense that this is quite common. You’ve said that it’s quite common, this action of mergence.


DON: Yet it is something that we can objectively use the energy of if we allow it.

ELIAS: Correct. Generally speaking, individuals are objectively unaware of that action occurring, but this is not to say that it does not occur quite frequently.” [session 1297, March 19, 2003]

HOWARD: “Did the essence of Christ/John/Paul fragment at or about that time? Of Christ? (Pause)

ELIAS: Did the essence of that which you identify as Jesus fragment in what time?

HOWARD: At or about his natural death in Macedonia? My feeling is that Christ fragmented, the essence of Telleth (10) fragmented shortly after the Biblical, after the dream was pretty much being done. I have some other feelings about folks who feel to me Christ-like by their mannerisms. I’m saying this because I knew them; I knew the man.

ELIAS: Let me express to you, first of all, essences are fragmenting continuously. Therefore, I may also express to you that your impressions may be correct, for the individuals that you generate that type of association with may incorporate some fragmentation in association with that essence. Not necessarily singularly, but as I have explained previously in relation to the subject matter of fragmentation, the fragmented essence chooses the qualities that it wishes to incorporate from the essence or essences that it is fragmented from. Which in association with what you understand within your physical reality, figuratively – not literally but figuratively speaking – it may be likened to genealogies, in a manner of speaking. One essence hypothetically may be fragmented from another essence and subsequently merge with several other essences and another essence may be fragmented, and so on and so forth. Throughout that process, whatever the fragmented essence desires to incorporate as qualities that it is creating in association with the essence it has been fragmented from, it may incorporate within itself.

Each fragmentation incorporates all of the energy, so to speak, of what it has been fragmented from. Therefore, if you were viewing this in a genealogy of a linear expression within time and in association with physical individuals, it would be likened to an individual choosing to be manifest now and choosing different qualities to be incorporated in that manifestation from any other individual throughout their entire lineage.

Perhaps for centuries there have been incorporated in the individual’s lineage black hair, but this one individual chooses to be manifesting with red hair and therefore chooses a quality of one within its lineage that may be from centuries past and therefore, in your terms, appears to be far removed but is not, for all of the expressions and all of the energies of every individual within the lineage is present and available in the now.

Now; as I have stated, this is quite a figurative analogy for this process of fragmentation, for there is no separation within consciousness and there is no time. Therefore, there is no expression of energy or quality that is removed.

HOWARD: So my impression of Jo H. [Tyl], when I look at her, and even though her essence name is close to Telleth and I’m seeing some image there, this is not necessarily the fact that Christ fragmented and Jo is of that. Or am I just doing my energy thing, picking up some attribute of what I’m looking at?

ELIAS: The latter is correct.” [session 1297, March 19, 2003]

BEN: Anne recently told me about Patrick’s fragmentation, about how he now has completely different essence information. Now, of course, for me I have a particular, I guess it’s like an absolute or a truth or whatever else, where I have an idea about what this essence information means in general. So when I find out that somebody has completely different essence information, it’s hard for me to explain. I describe it as if someone could change their nationality, but that has to do with where you were born or who your parents were and it can’t be changed in six months. If it is changed, I would expect this person to turn out to be a different person. Could you give me any insights about my beliefs or associations with what essence information means, period?

ELIAS: I may confirm that you do generate an association in absolutes concerning this information, which I have expressed there are no absolutes. Let me also explain to you that an individual may choose to be fragmenting or an individual may choose to be aligning themselves more strongly with a different essence, which may be an observing essence of their focus, and the information shall change. But that does not necessarily alter the individual or their intent or their direction or their personality.

BEN: Well, let me ask this. Previously Patrick had the essence name of Roth, so is this essence named Roth manifesting physical focuses in this dimension now?


BEN: So the relationship between Eric and Roth, is this sort of like... This is not a first focus for the Eric essence, correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

BEN: You were saying before about sort of an observing essence. Is that what’s going on? In other words, there was some relationship of this Eric essence all along, and now this Eric essence is directing or primary, and Roth is no longer involved.

ELIAS: No, this would be a situation of fragmentation, as I expressed, which is the generating of another essence. As I have explained previously, this type of action occurs continuously within essence. As I have also expressed, whatever the fragmented essence chooses to incorporate as qualities of the fragmenting essence, they do. The action of fragmenting is the choice of different qualities incorporated within an existing essence or essences, for it may be an action that is incorporated in relation to several or even many essences which may be merged in one action, and a quality chooses to be expressed as its own personality essence.

Now; all of the experiences of the fragmenting essence or essences are incorporated within the new essence. It is not an action in which the new essence that is generated, in your terms, would be viewed as a blank slate. It incorporates all of the experiences of the fragmenting essences.

This action of fragmentation may not necessarily be obviously expressed within an actual physical focus. At times there may be some evidence expressed in the choice of the focus to be altering their expression and changing the manner in which they express themselves. They may even choose to be expressing some alterations of personality, but that is not quite common. That would be what you would term to be more rare. Generally speaking, the individual does not display much alteration, if any, in the action of fragmentation.” [session 1518, February 20, 2004]

Library: go to the essence fragmentation summary.

End Notes:

(1) Vic’s note: I’m not going to attempt to explain the significance of this here. It’s too complicated, and I don’t really understand myself. Suffice it to say that Otha and Ordin are [essences who are] very instrumental within the action of the energy exchange between Mary and Elias.)

(2) Paul’s note: the concept of “walk-ins” is found in various New Age belief systems. The basic belief is that one personality is born – beginning a lifetime – and at some point a “new” personality takes possession and assumes the primary ego role. The result seems to explain the strong change of personality and loss of memory that some people experience.

Elias attempts to clarify this belief system within the context of human personality as a multidimensional process consisting of a variety of related aspect selves that he terms probable and alternate selves.

Just because people experience significant personality changes and/or inexplicable memory loss doesn't mean that there are intrusive actions of possession or the like foisted upon an individual by a malevolent OR benevolent ''external'' force. This is simply not the case and only serves to perpetuate the beliefs that some external ''thing'' or someone ''else'' creates our reality for us.

ELIAS: “I have begun to express to you elements of body consciousness. I have expressed to you from early on in our session times that your physical expression, your body, is not a vessel! It is a tangible, physical matter expression of essence. It is you. It holds its own consciousness, for each cell holds its own independent consciousness. Each atom holds its own individual consciousness. Within cooperation, it creates a collective consciousness which becomes your body consciousness. You, as a focus of essence, hold consciousness beyond the physical manifestation of body consciousness, but are intimately involved with this consciousness. You direct the consciousness and function of your physical expression; your body.

You are not another focus, but you may experience another focus. Another focus holds a body consciousness of its own, but you may experience an exchange and you may experience another focus in its totality. You may merge totally to another focus and experience another focus, as it may do likewise also.

I have also expressed that you intersect alternate selves. I have expressed that you may exchange with alternate selves. You may accomplish a certain time period within a focus and you may exchange with an alternate self, which shall continue the focus as you continue otherwise. How is this possible if your body consciousness is only your body consciousness? Here we come to unofficial information.

You view yourselves as one entity. You view yourselves as one mind, one body. You are not! You view your consciousness as one thinking mind, one thought process. You are countless thought processes. Each focus is not one entity. The air within this room occupies one space. It is not one entity. In like manner, you focus within one material expression physically, but your consciousness is not singular. Your physical body expression resonates to the tone of you, of one focus; not to the entirety of essence, but to the individual focus; for each focus is a new creation. It has been always, but it is new. We do not deal with used material!

Your body consciousness recognizes your beingness. Your body consciousness also recognizes that your focus beingness is an aspect of your essence and will also identify with all other aspects of essence. Therefore, within essence you may exchange temporarily between focuses.

Each focus is as the air within this room; myriads of aspects, countless elements of personality cooperating to create one focus. This allows for all of your alternate selves. These may exchange with an individual focus. However, another focus may not exchange with you. You may temporarily intersect and experience, but you may not ‘take over.’

You have asked much time ago of your concept of walk-ins; another entity which ‘walks into you,’ therefore assuming your physical expression and continuing for you as you dissipate into the cosmos! Which, we do not know of where you shall be dissipating to, but the new entity shall be ‘taking over’ your physical form. This does not happen! Underline! You may not assume another focus, for it is not you, although it is you! (Confused laughter) You may temporarily intersect, merge, experience another focus, just as they may temporarily merge with you and experience. In this mergence, you are unaware of this presence. You do not lose you, as they do not lose themselves.

If you are exchanging with another focus, you may merge into the experience of another focus. You may empathically be another focus. Aspects of your focus shall merge. This in reality you may consider, in your terms, a physical act. Your consciousness shall merge into this other individual. They may feel odd or strangely, but they also will continue to feel themselves. You shall hold an awareness, as if you are this focus. This may occur temporarily. You may not assume another focus. As you are all focuses of one essence, mergences may occur. The tone is close enough, in your terms, that each individual body consciousness shall temporarily be accepting of this mergence; temporarily.

Alternate selves hold almost entirely the same tone as what you understand of yourself. That self which you identify as you has countless alternate selves which are also you. You only identify one you, but just as you identify one air within one space, there are myriads of particles that are making up of this space. These alternates may exchange places with you, in your terms, for their tone will not be interrupting of your body consciousness. Another essence merging with you will be recognized by your body consciousness; and has been stated previously, your physical response within your body, to placing what you term to be foreign objects within it, shall be rejection. Your body and its consciousness holds its own awareness and responds to you.

This is not to say that an exchange with another essence may not occur ... obviously! [Paul’s note: refering to his interaction with Mary Ennis] (Laughter) Within agreement, an exchange may occur with another essence, but the body consciousness recognizes this exchange and is partially rejecting of this exchange. Physical elements occur, for the body consciousness realizes the essence occupying and directing ... We shall more express directing, for the essence does not float in and float out! But the body is recognizing of the direction and tone, which is different. Therefore, its response is to be rejecting of this. It will not reject alternates. It will not reject temporary exchange of other focuses of essence. It will be rejecting of another essence exchange. (Vic’s note: this must be why Mary experiences unexplainable physical symptoms and affectingness.) This is part of unofficial information. In all of its aspects, you may experience exchange or intersection with alternates or with another focus, and you may experience emotional changes, thought changes, action changes, that you do not understand. They shall be temporary, in your view, but you shall notice.” [session 147, January 12, 1997]

(3) Vic’s note: [according to Elias] Mary and I are fragmented of both Elias and Paul (Patel) within some sort of action of mergence, and Ron is fragmented of Paul (Patel). This would be the identification within tone and fragmentation that Margot recognizes. (Or something like that!)

(4) Paul’s note: Elias uses the analogy of fireworks to describe the way an energy personality essence manifests into physical dimensions of experience. Each spoke that explodes, represents a single focus personality. Each manifestation occurs simultaneously from the essence’s point of view.

ELIAS: “Think of your fireworks. Visualize your fireworks. Within this action, you shoot into your skies your fireworks, which explode into many, many, many glittering aspects of its one self all at the same time. Think of each projection of twinkling light of these fireworks as a focus of an essence, all occurring simultaneously, all twinkling equally as brightly, and all projecting a manifestation.

The essence chooses a cycle to be entering into, providing it is choosing to be entering into physical focus. As it is choosing each physical dimension, it gathers information of each physical dimension and the elements required for physical manifestation within those dimensions. It accumulates the information of each physical dimension, this particular dimension requiring your genetic encoding for your manifestations simultaneously holding information of other focuses within other dimensions which hold different elements for manifestation. As all of this information is gathered, it is incorporated into essence.

Within your terms, underline, at the moment that essence chooses to be entering into physical dimensions, it explodes into countless focuses or facets. These focuses appear simultaneously within each dimension and within each time element of each dimension, according to the desire of the essence. In this, each twinkling of the firework holds its own individuality and choices. Therefore, within all of this simultaneous action occurs another simultaneous action, of each focus accumulating, assimilating and manifesting all of its own information which is pertaining to its own individual manifestation; that which it chooses.

In this, in your thought process and your time framework you may think of the action of the subjective events as preceding the physical manifestation ... although, mark this! It does not precede! But for the purpose of understanding, as you think in linear terms and within moments, you may think to yourself in increments of events. In this, the essence holds all of the information of all of the dimensions initially. It is directing of all of its aspects into all of the areas that it chooses to experience within. As it chooses the cycles that it is desiring to be experiencing, it also chooses a designated amount, so to speak, of aspects that shall be entering a specific dimension for that experience.” [session 182, June 08, 1997]

(5) Vic’s note: the following are some good explanations of aspects, fragments, splinters, and probable selves. Great question, Michael!

(6) Paul’s note: according to the information offered so far, Dream Walkers are nonphysically focused aspects of essence. That means they do not, as a rule, engage in physical cycles of manifestation. Yet, as essence, they play an intimate role in the creation and maintenance of our physical universe.

Mary Ennis holds fragmentation relationships with the essence of Rose, Otha, and a mergence of the essences of Patel and Elias. Mary’s essence name is Michael, so she is a focus of Michael. And Otha, Patel, Elias, and Michael are all “fragmented from” the essence of Rose, who is a Dream Walker. So in this sense, Mary holds the aspect of Dream Walker, but is not a Dream Walker.

The action of fragmentation, as Elias states repeatedly, in not a linear process, like parents giving birth to children. It is more of a metaphor for the nonphysical process of becoming and value fulfillment that all consciousness simultaneously engages in. This to say that essence is simultaneously itself yet also an aspect of all consciousness, just like a water molecule is simultaneously itself and an aspect of the ocean it exists in.

(7) Paul’s note: there’s a couple of interesting aspects to this brief exchange. First, Elias affectionately refers to Vicki Pendley using the moniker of “scribe” at times, as she is the lead transcriber and editor of all of the Elias transcripts (Margot Reed and Bobbi Houle have also spent many hours transribing from audio tapes of the original session videotapes). Second, the confusion he alludes to refers to several occurances in which he has given different essence names and even essence family alignments to the same individual.

Vicki did ask Elias about these inconsistencies in an earlier session, Session 333, Monday, October 19, 1998.

VICKI: “Okay, I’m going to start here. I have some questions that I’ve been curious about for a long time, basically based on what I see as some very interesting contradictions in the material, actually blatant contradictions that to me are more black and white than ever existed before, since the sessions started. I’m not sure exactly how to approach this, so I’ll use the last three examples I’ve noticed.

One was regarding essence names and families for a couple of friends of Vivien’s. Forrest asked some questions about them, and then she asked them later in her session, and all the answers were different. One of the other ones was this whole deal with the essence name of Bistell versus Bissell, which was quite clear on the tape but was offered differently at different times.

ELIAS: ... The information is constant. The information is the same. The manipulation of energy into actual language and words may become distorted, for the energy, as I have stated, is not being filtered through thought processes. Therefore, it is not that the essence is ‘channeling,’ so to speak, energy through layers of consciousness, accessing Michael’s [Mary’s] physical brain, creating of physical thought processes and physical impulses within brain patterns, and then translating into words. This particular element is bypassed, for it is inefficient and also quite slow. It is merely another area of consciousness that would be engaged to be filtering through another aspect of translation, which would be incorporating of more distortion. Therefore, there are certain elements of the translation that are eliminated or bypassed to be filtering out elements of distortion, for within the intent of this essence, it is to be presenting within the least amount of distortion.

This be also why I have expressed to you that there is no energy exchange that incorporates NO distortion. This would not be an action that you may be incorporating in this type of situation of energy exchange. Just as within your physical languages, which is a mirror image of consciousness, you may not entirely, literally, without any element of distortion translate one language into another language, I may not translate energy into your language without any element of distortion.

Now; it IS clarifying for you to be inquiring in these areas, for not all of these appearances of what you think of as distortions ARE in actuality distortions. Some of these are purposefully stated. There are time frameworks – that I have noticed (grinning) – with yourself, Lawrence [Vicki], that you may be engaging your transcribing, and you are holding questionings as to my choice of words in certain areas, and in certain areas those particular words have been chosen purposefully and are not what you may term to be a mistake, and are also not a distortion. But there are other time frameworks that you may notice certain aspects are less adept, so to speak, at manipulating words, and may be stumbling quite often, within one engagement of one session repeatedly, of physical words. At other time frameworks, there may be no mistakes, so to speak, incorporated at all.

The overall expression is consistently the same, with the exception of very infrequent exchanges of certain other aspects holding an obvious difference in tone, and this shall be quite obvious to you all.

VICKI: Which I have experienced.

ELIAS: Yes, and in this, you each shall quite obviously hold an awareness that there is a very different aspect in tone expressing through this energy exchange. For the most part, there is a purposeful expression in offering a consistency in tone that you may identify with, for this, as I have stated, offers you a familiarity, which creates a trust and an acceptance of what is being offered to you. And in this area – within the objective, within the agenda, and within the offering of this information – it is of importance that you ARE accepting of the information, for you have asked for this information. It would be defeating of the purpose, so to speak, to be offering this information in a manner that would be presenting fearfulness to you.” [session 333, October 19, 1998]

Now in the context of this session (#502), Eric had already asked for his essence name several years earlier at a group session in Castaic, Calfornia:

ERIC: “I would like to know, or become familiar with, the name of my essence.

ELIAS: This essence tone would be Dohm, D-O-H-M; holding confusion within this present now; (smiling) but within your seeking out of these individuals, you may acquire more clarity, within yourself, of your own identification.” [session 96, May 12, 1996]

So, it was interesting that Elias didn’t refer to this previous exchange or the fact that Eric had never asked for his essence family belonging to and alignment. And given that Elias delayed answering Eric’s question, while refering to confusing Vicki, the scribe, just served to keep everyone wondering.

In this case, Elias used the action of fragmentation as the concept affecting his ability to deliver a discrete answer. This is an interesting part of the overall phenomenon and a reminder that we are not dealing with absolutes but orienting generalizations that change with our experiences and understanding of them.

Finally, note that in a following session, #504, November 19, 1999, Elias addresses the same issue with George! Is Elias making “mistakes” again or do we not yet understand the subtle concepts of the action of essence mergence and fragmentation?

(8) Paul’s note: George’s friend, Lorraine, asked about this information in a private session that occurred earlier in New Jersey:

LORRAINE: “I have a friend who asked me to ask those same questions for him. He’s at the University of Iowa – George. He’s been reading the transcripts and he’s been a Seth reader for years, so I told him I’d see if you would give me that information for him. (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence name, Vaunette; V-A-U-N-E-T-T-E. (von-yet’) Essence family, Borledim; alignment, Milumet; orientation, common.” [session 485, October 16, 1999]

Interestingly, George’s orientation did not change in this assessment and offering of information by Elias. Elias says that oreintation is a pre-birth, pre-manifestation, choice made by essence. While any choice may change, in this case everything changed except orientation.

(9) Paul’s note: Ayla is one of nine essences who facilitate the energy exchange between Mary Ennis and Elias. During the early sessions in Castaic, California, Elias created an educational game to help forum participants explore subtle energies in relation to impressions and essence families. So Ayla was associated with the energy of the Vold family of consciousness.

Vic’s note: referring to the essences that help support the energy exchange between Mary and Elias; Ayla represents yellow [Vold], Ordin represents purple [Zuli], Otha represents green [Ilda], Tomkin represents red [Milumet], Patel represents orange [Gramada], and Elias represents blue [Sumari]. These colors each represent an essence family in the educational game.

Library: find out more about Ayla and essences in the game.

Digests: find out more about the game.

(10) Paul’s note: I’m including information from the Seth Material, channeled by Jane Roberts from 1963 – 1984, in this note because so many Elias readers are also Seth readers and these two sources share interesting similarities.

Jane first published some of, what she termed, “Christ material” in The Seth Material (1970), Chapter 18, The God Concept – The Creation – The Three Christs. However, Seth only actually names John the Baptist and Jesus Christ saying that he would offer the third name at a later date.

In Seth Speaks, (1972), Chapter 21, The Meaning of Religion, session 586, Seth talks about the ‘Christ entity’ in terms of three physical focuses: John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, and Paul or Saul of Tarsus. Seth also mentions that the twelve disciples were fragment personalities of the ‘Christ entity’ and the historical figure named “the teacher of righteousness” was a probable self. All this to say that Seth’s version of the ‘Christ entity’ phenomenon is multidimensional and multipersonal in nature.

Now, according to Elias, these three primary physical focuses – whom we know today as John, Jesus, and Paul – were also manifestations of a single essence. But in addtion, Elias has offered that this ‘Christ essence,’ so to speak, belongs to the Milumet essence family.

(Vic’s transcript note: Jene expressed irritation during the break with Elias’ refusal to answer [my earlier] question about essence naming [for the focus of Jesus Christ]. She also said that this is the first time she has felt irritation with Elias during a session. I am sharing this for the benefit of folks who don’t attend sessions because quite often, information delivered after a break is directly related to conversation during the break.

ELIAS: “Continuing: (To Jene) I shall offer, for your clarification and curiosity ...

JENE: Thank you.

ELIAS: ... essence family.

JENE: Okay. That’s cool.

ELIAS: For you are correct that we are focused upon the actions of essence families, and this holds significance. Therefore, I shall express the essence family. This particular essence in question, which was manifest within three physical manifestations, is of the family of Milumet.

As to a distortion, you are partially correct in that the manifestation within the intent of the family of Milumet was to be expressing of what you now term to be spirituality. In the actual expression, it was to be reminding you of your connections with essence. You are correct, in a sense, that this information has been distorted, although you have purposefully chosen the progression that you have created throughout your history, leading you within your progression of probabilities to this experience of your present shift.

Therefore, you may in one respect express that you have distorted the information offered of essence, but within another respect you have changed the information for your own experience. This essence family, within initiating of your religious time period, focused upon the intent of a remembrance of no separation of essence. This was translated symbolically, physically.” [session 141, December 22, 1996]

Later, Elias also provided the essence name for this ‘Christ essence’ during a later session :

VIVIEN: “The other thing I wanted to ask is the essence names of Mary and of Jesus. (Pause)

ELIAS: Essence name held by the focus of Mary, Sheen. Essence name held by the focus of Jesus, Telleth.

VIVIEN: Telleth. Okay, thank you.” [session 382, April 12, 1999]

According to Seth, it was Paul who, in creating the organization of the church that was left unsatisfied, in that he had not fulfilled his original intent. Both John and Jesus succeeded in fulfilling theirs’. So that unfulfilled intent forms the basis for Paul’s “return,” so to speak, to help make human kind more aware of their connection with All-That-Is, no longer requiring the direct mediation of priesthoods and calcified beauracracies to directly experience the Divine Within.

While Seth speaks of this so-called “return” in very singular terms, Elias expands and diverges at this point. According to Elias, that unfulfilled intent forms the basis for the focus of Paul’s mergence with the essence of Rose to remanifest as nine male children and lend energy to our shift.

Finally, for those interested, Paul (Patel) offered the essence family alignments for the three primary focuses of the ‘Christ essence’ during an online chat, dated March 10, 1998:

PATEL: “Greetings this energy has been quite encompassing of you all tonight.

PAUL: Hi Patel!

TOM: Greetings Paul (Patel).

MJ: Hello Paul (Patel).

PAUL: Yes it has!

TOM: Yes, we have felt you.

PATEL: Certain questions have arisen that may well be answered by yourselves but I shall be available to you if you so choose.

PAUL: ... A question from Tyl [Joanne]; what are the family alignments of the three focuses of the Milumet essence?

PATEL: Apologizing for delay, Olivia [Ron] has issues within this exchange.

PATEL: Focus of Jesus, Vold.

PATEL: Focus of John, also Tumold.

PATEL: Focus of Paul, Tumold.

PAUL: Thank you very much!”
