the belief system of inner senses; an overview

Paul’s note: Elias has described three fundamental inner senses, along with several additional ones to date:

Fundamental inner senses:

- conceptualization

- differential time

- empathic

Secondary/complementary inner senses: (1)

- clairvoyance

- telepathy

- tone

- touch

Finally, the following are the ten primary belief systems according to Elias. He adds that there are many, many, many aspects to each belief system. However, these are not discrete, separated parts, but primary aspects that all work together seamlessly in the conscious mind of every individual. For example, aspects of the belief system of duplicity are present, in varying degrees, in each of the other nine.

Digests of Essential Elias relationships (interpersonal/intrapersonal = other/self)
Digests of Essential Elias duplicity (morality/ethics)
Digests of Essential Elias sexuality (sexuality/gender/orientation/preference)
Digests of Essential Elias truth (relative truths/Absolute Truth)
Digests of Essential Elias emotion (emotional/feeling)
Digests of Essential Elias perception (perceptual/attention)
Digests of Essential Elias the senses (inner/physical sensing)
Digests of Essential Elias religious/spirituality (exoteric/esoteric)
Digests of Essential Elias scientific/elements of physical reality (scientific/rational)
Digests of Essential Elias physical creation of the universe, including accidents and coincidences (creation mythos)

Here’s the excerpt from the session in which Elias delivered this important information (I have underlined each belief system for clarity, as Elias did not originally instruct for this to be done):

JAMES: “Would you tell me what the belief systems are?” (12-second pause)

ELIAS: “You are inquiring of the belief systems in conjunction with this blocking of action?”

JAMES: “No. I was inquiring in general; the belief systems in total that we hold; the bird cages.”

ELIAS: “Ah! You are inquiring of a listing of all of your belief systems!” (Grinning)

JAMES: “Yes, correct.”

ELIAS: “I shall express to you that you hold fewer belief systems than you think, although within these belief systems, you hold many more aspects than you think.

“In this, (pause) you hold belief systems of relationship. You hold belief system of duplicity. You hold belief system of sexuality. You hold belief system of truth.

“... This being also those in conjunction with emotion, and perception. You also hold the belief system of certain senses. You hold religious belief system, which we shall identify as spirituality, and you hold scientific belief system, which shall be the designation of physical reality and the elements of it.

“These are the basic belief systems that you hold within this particular reality.

“You hold one other belief system also, which may be viewed to be more encompassing, and this would be the belief system of your physical creation of your universe, which is slightly different from your scientific belief system or your religious belief system. In this, that particular belief system involves the aspects of coincidences and accidents.

“As I have stated, these are the basic creations of your belief systems within this dimension, but each of these expressed holds a tremendous amount of aspects within them. Therefore, although the designation of the belief systems – the cages themselves – may be few, the aspects or the birds within them are very many, and many of these birds may appear in manners that you do not even associate with these particular belief systems.” [session 364, February 24, 1999]

ELIAS: “Through your inner senses, you may connect with vibrational tones. Everything within your perception incorporates a vibrational tone. Your table incorporates a vibrational tone. Every molecule, every atom, every unit of consciousness incorporates a vibrational tone. Therefore, within your inner senses your ‘objective,’ so to speak, would be to be connecting with an individual scenario of connection of vibrational tones, of which there are more than you may count.” [session 79, March 17, 1996]

ELIAS: “It is quite natural for you to be engaging these inner senses, as you are using these continuously. You only are not noticing. These inner senses are exercised within your normal workings of your manifestation continuously, although you hold no thought process connected with them. They may be likened to your heart beating or your breath. You do not walk through your day and continuously think of your heart beating or tell yourself to breathe. You automatically accomplish these functions. You also automatically accomplish the usage of your inner senses. You just do not recognize as you are using these senses, this being why I have offered you exercises to be engaging these inner senses.” [session 162, April 06, 1997]

ELIAS: “As I have stated previously, I have not separated the inner senses into categories of nine senses, and I have not differentiated them so extensively as others may present them to you (2); for your inner senses, although in some aspects are clearly defined from each other, they are not quite as explicitly defined, in your terms, as your outer senses. Your outer senses function precisely and may not be confused with each other. You do not confuse your sense of touch with your sense of sight. They are clearly defined. Your inner senses are softer, so to speak, although they also may be differentiated precisely. It is unnecessary to be classifying these senses overly specifically.” [session 166 April 20, 1997]

ELIAS: “It shall serve you well to be practicing with these inner senses. Just as you may identify many elements of your environment and your reality by your outer senses without thought process, you may identify much subjective activity and bring this into an objective awareness with practice of these inner senses. This shall also serve to lessen your confusion as you allow yourself to widen your awareness, as you move into this shift.” [session 171, May 04, 1997]

ELIAS: “You have only three [fundamental inner senses]. It is unnecessary to boggle yourselves with all of these categorizations. You hold your empathic sense, your conceptualization sense, and your sense of differential time. These be all you need to be connecting with all of your subjective activity and allowing for your understanding of bleed-through information.” [session 205, August 10, 1997]

ELIAS: (Chuckling) “... you have designed a physical manifestation that incorporates MANY avenues of communication! Emotion is one, and as I have stated previously, all of your senses are other avenues of communication. This is their function. The function of emotion is a communication. The function of all of your senses, inner and outer senses, is communication. The function of impulses and impressions is communication. You incorporate communication in your physical body expressions. (Pause) It is an intricate expression of your BEING in this physical dimension.” [session 764, January 24, 2001]

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “You telepathically communicate to each other and to all of your aspects and to all essences everywhere continually. You are telepathically connecting with each other continually. This is your communication in Regional Area 2. Without your telepathic ability, you would not be connecting within Regional Area 2. Therefore, you are using your inner senses always. You only do not realize, and you have not ‘fine-tuned’ these senses to be consciously controlling them within waking consciousness. This is what you are practicing and learning.” [session 57, November 26, 1995]

NORM: “In thought processes, I find that when I’m speaking, I quite often have difficulty picking a word, but I have a picture, a pictorial graph. Is that also the difference between one individual and another, that they think in words or they think in pictures?

ELIAS: Yes.

NORM: And that’s mixed throughout everybody?

ELIAS: Yes.

NORM: So I would be an emotional, pictorial thinker. Is that what I am? (Laughter)

ELIAS: If you choose to be viewing yourself in this manner!

NORM: But I can choose, I really can choose to express myself, or think in words rather than in pictures?

ELIAS: These are indications of what I have expressed previously as your inner senses, which shall show themselves more distinctly in certain aspects. Some individuals shall experience more feeling. Therefore, they may interpret in what you classify as mental images, which are not pictures. Some individuals are visual. They view mental pictures, as if viewing a movie screen. Some individuals hear sound. Some individuals see words. These are all different manifestations of inner senses.

Each of you has an inner sense that you naturally develop more than your other inner senses, just as you naturally develop outer senses more than others. Some individuals have highly developed sense of smell. Others may have highly developed sense of hearing. You may have a highly developed, or as to this point highly developed, inner sense visually. Your psychics attach psychic words to these inner senses, which you may recognize as clairvoyant or clairaudient. These are designated psychic words for inner senses that you naturally possess. Each individual develops their inner senses in the manner that they pay attention to the most efficiently. Some individuals are very visual. Therefore, they also shall develop visual inner senses. Some are more audible or word-oriented. Therefore, they shall also develop inner hearing.” [session 137, December 01, 1996]

ELIAS: “The subject of inner senses has been offered before by another. (3) These were broken into classifications of nine inner senses. Essentially, I have offered these inner senses to you already, with different names. Some of the inner senses that I have explained to you encompass several of the categories of inner senses which have been offered in the explanation of the nine inner senses. The inner sense of conceptualization and the inner sense of empathic activity both encompass more of the explanations that have been offered within the designation of nine inner senses. I have also offered you your exercise of clarity. (4) This demonstrates to you another inner sense.

We have been dealing with inner senses for some time period, although I have not designated them as specifically inner senses, except for empathic and conceptualization. Added to this, you hold an inner sense which deals with your time construct. (5) This inner sense, when engaged, allows you the ability to disassociate yourselves with your creation of time. In this, you may experience no-time. You may experience dream time elements, and you may also experience the overlapping effect of what you view to be past, present, and future. You may accomplish tapping this inner sense within your waking state, just as you may tap all other inner senses within your waking state. It is not necessary for you to be engaging your sleep state to be connecting with what you think of as the inner you.

You have already begun engaging much subjective activity. As this accelerates, you are also engaging, unwittingly, some of your inner senses. As you do not define to yourselves these inner senses as clearly as your outer senses, when you engage them you may become confused.

It is quite natural for you to be engaging these inner senses, as you are using these continuously. You only are not noticing. These inner senses are exercised within your normal workings of your manifestation continuously, although you hold no thought process connected with them. They may be likened to your heart beating or your breath. You do not walk through your day and continuously think of your heart beating or tell yourself to breathe. You automatically accomplish these functions. You also automatically accomplish the usage of your inner senses. You just do not recognize as you are using these senses, this being why I have offered you exercises to be engaging these inner senses. You have been offered exercises to exercise your empathic sense, your sense of conceptualization, and also your inner sense of tone and touch, this being what you have exercised with our example in clarity. (6)

I have expressed to you previously that these exercises are of importance. Now I shall express to you that in order to be objectively understanding the experience and the movement of consciousness of your shift and also of transition, it is necessary for you to be acquainted with these inner senses and learning to be manipulating within these efficiently. You hold the ability to be manipulating these inner senses equally as well and efficiently as your outer senses. (Much laughter) If you are practicing! You think that you do not hold the ability to be manipulating these inner senses as efficiently, but you also do not intentionally, consciously, noticingly exercise these senses very often at all!” [session 162, April 6, 1997]

RETA: “Would the best method of being able to view beyond what they have right now be to use the nine inner senses?

ELIAS: I express to you that you do not hold nine inner senses, but you are correct. Nine inner senses have been offered to you in a manner that individuals may understand initially, but they are merely variations of only three inner senses.

NORM: So three of them are grouped together in threes?

ELIAS: Correct.

NORM: The revelations that the religious people have had throughout the religious era, there seems to be some truths in regard to what they have said about the spirituality of atoms and so on and so forth. So they apparently have the ability to use ... the revelation is similar to using the three sets of three inner senses.

ELIAS: Correct. I have expressed to you many times that your religious elements are based in truth. They have merely been distorted throughout your history.

JIM: ... “Could you categorize the nine inner senses again briefly, please?

ELIAS: You have only three. It is unnecessary to boggle yourselves with all of these categorizations. You hold your empathic sense, your conceptualization sense, and your sense of differential time. These be all you need to be connecting with all of your subjective activity and allowing for your understanding of bleed-through information.” [session 205, August 10, 1997]

ELIAS: “You hold many belief systems of how you are creating your reality, but I suggest to you that as you are investigating this idea of being a conscious creator or conscious co-creator of your reality, you are offering yourselves each day information of how you are in actuality creating this reality. It is not as hidden as you believe it to be! It is merely a question of opening yourselves to be accepting and viewing what you ARE creating. This is not to say that you have allowed yourselves the ability as yet of completely understanding objectively HOW you are creating your reality, for you continue to hold questions, for you have not accepted many belief systems which are influencing and blocking of your abilities to view; but you are moving.

Within the time framework that I have expressed previously of merely one hundred fifty years ago in your terms, individuals were much more blinded, in your terms once again, to their reality, and even the concept that they are creating their reality. This was not within the direction of their attention. Therefore, it was not viewed. These individuals, as I have stated, were much more concerned within their attention to outer senses; the exploration and the heightening of the experience of outer senses.

Within your present now, as has been demonstrated with your involvement of your exercise in clarity of your outer senses, you have shown yourselves that you are not as attuned to these outer senses as you believe you are, and you hold little ability to be manipulating of these outer senses consciously; but simultaneously, you are manipulating inner senses much more efficiently, whereas individuals within this other time framework that you may look to were not manipulating inner senses to any degree that you engage them presently.

There are of course exceptions within all time frameworks. There are individuals that do not allow themselves presently to be connecting with inner senses and are very objectively focused and are very manipulating of outer senses, and in like manner within other time frameworks there have been individuals that allowed much more of a tuning to inner senses and not that of the outer senses; but within mass and your mass expressions and your movements within consciousness within different time periods, the mass moved in the direction of connecting with outer senses and looking to other individuals for their reality and not looking to self. Now, within this framework of time, your mass moves in the direction of looking to inner senses and connecting with reality in this manner as opposed to being connecting with outer senses, and also recognizing that you ARE creating of your reality and not looking to other individuals or figures to be creating your reality for you or expressing to you HOW to be creating your reality. You now begin to look to self to instruct you in the area of how to be creating of your reality.” [session 220, September 20, 1997]

JEN: “Yeah. I’ve seen a psychic who’s told me that I’m an old soul.

ELIAS: Correct.

JEN: He most recently told me that he sees a ‘V’ above me of people that I don’t know that I can channel, but that I can get information from, and I wanted to ask – this is my personal question – what that’s about, because I’m very excited about harnessing their energy to facilitate this shift, and it seems like it’s already happening and so that’s very exciting, but at the same time, not knowing exactly how to do that makes me apprehensive that I can’t do it.

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Within true form of your Milumet alignment! Many individuals that are aligning with this essence family are quite blocking of their own abilities, for they move themselves objectively into the area of discounting themselves and expressing that they do not hold the ability. In actuality, you hold the ability to be accomplishing, if allowing yourself, to an extent more easily than individuals that are aligning with other essence families, for this is an aspect of your intent.

In this, let me express to you that individuals that you classify or term to be psychics, these individuals hold a developed ability to be accessing their inner senses and to be exercising their inner senses, just as you hold this same ability, but ...

JEN: Regardless of family?

ELIAS: Correct. But you do not pursue practicing and focusing upon these inner senses. Therefore, you do not develop them as clearly, although you may within any given moment. In this, these individuals tap into your energy and access the first layer of information in consciousness directly related to you in the pool of probabilities that you are creating within an individual focus.

Therefore, what has been accessed and expressed to you is a viewing of the closeness of your other focuses. In this, let me express to you that I am not expressing that certain focuses are closer than other focuses or that your particular focuses move closer to you than other individuals and their focuses, but that you are beginning to open to the realization of these other focuses and open to the exploration of this, and in this you also hold an awareness that you may be accessing much information with your exploration of these focuses. You may also be accessing energy more efficiently.

These focuses shall lend energy to you regardless, but objectively you may manipulate energy that you are receiving from your other focuses, and you may be choosing to use this energy in the direction that you are focused upon consciously and purposefully. Therefore, I shall be encouraging to you to be investigating of these other focuses that you hold simultaneous to this one that your attention is occupied with, and you may be offering yourself much information of yourself and of your intent and of your direction.

JEN: And how do I go about facilitating this? By more attention to this? Is it through reading and what I’m speaking with you about?

ELIAS: You may also engage your meditations, or you may be engaging your new game!

JEN: My new game? Different from the old game? (7)

ELIAS: Absolutely! You may be inquiring of Michael [Mary] or Lawrence [Vicki] in this area, and they shall be offering you an explanation.” [session 288, June 20, 1998]

ELIAS: (Very intently) “If I shall express to any of you, within all of my engagements with you within physical interaction, any quote that shall be remembered, it shall become ‘It matters not,’ for your expressions are merely those of experience. You are immensely – underline immensely – vaster than your comprehension of yourselves within this one particular physical focus, and this vastness of self is available to you. You are not limited to the understanding of only this one focus. You hold ALL of essence within you. It is NOT a being outside of you. Your relationship with yourself is not a relationship which is engaged with some elusive entity that floats about outside of you. Information that you allow yourselves to connect to is NOT outside of you. ALL of the information is held within you.

I have expressed many times that the only difference between yourselves and myself is that you do not remember and I do. You have chosen to be forgetful, that you may create within physical focus a purity of experience and a fullness of experience in physical aspects. Therefore, you have CHOSEN to be forgetting of all of essence and the vastness of yourselves. I no longer occupy physical focus. Therefore, I hold the remembrance, but you now move into this action of this shift in consciousness and you now offer yourselves the remembrance also. You each are building your bridges from your individual oubliettes across to the recognition and realization of essence.

You do not occupy a planet of lowly accord. You are not within this physical focus as a learning dimension, so to speak, on your way to higher ground. There is no higher ground! You ARE your highest expression! Even within all of your belief systems and within your physical expressions, you ARE your highest expression. You are one focus of an endless essence, and this one focus holds all of the information of consciousness, of essence, of you, and of all other essences. For although you camouflage within physical focus, and you within your thought processes hold to the belief that you may move in the direction of being secretive, for you are so very separate within physical focus, you are not separate at all. You are all intertwined. Your consciousness is all intermingled, and within essence there are no secrets, for all is known to all others.

You amaze yourselves with your own abilities. You present to yourselves different moments where you shall physically express to each other simultaneously the same thought. You shall verbally express the same words within your language simultaneously with another individual, and you shall call this accident! This is a very simple example of the interconnectedness of you all and that you all are participating within a mergence of consciousness collectively, continuously. Your telepathic abilities would be astounding to you, were you merely to open yourselves SLIGHTLY to your own abilities.

Your inner senses are more fine-tuned, so to speak, than your outer senses. You engage your outer senses continuously. You are quite familiar with touch and the sensation of this. You are quite familiar with your sight and the engagement of your sense of hearing. You do not allow yourselves to recognize your inner senses, which move far beyond these outer senses. Your outer senses are outward mirror images of your inner senses, which hold immense power, and you now offer yourselves the opportunity to not only experiment with these inner senses, but in actuality to open to these inner senses and to be moving into the exploration of consciousness within your physical objective awareness, your waking state within this dimension, offering yourselves much more of your own expressions of creativity.” [session 302, July 26, 1998]

MARGOT: “Now ... a very weird part of the dream comes now! Our friend Jade shows up and he needs some help with his car. He’s trying to drive down a very narrow canyon that is near this great big house that we’re all in. This is a very strange car because it runs along the canyon walls on rails, but the rails haven’t been used for a while and they need to be greased, and so I volunteer to go along with Jade in this little car-thing and grease the rails as we go down, and I do that with big gobs of grease. So we get all the way and everything is fine, but Jade does not go on his way when we get back to the house. He goes into the house and sits down and enjoys himself with everyone. The only thing that I could draw from this, and I think it’s in line with what you’ve been saying, is that I am helping Jade to accept his own belief systems and the belief systems of everyone else because I grease the rails for him. Is that correct, or what can you give me on that?

ELIAS: You are partially correct in your interpretation of this imagery, but I shall also offer you a continuation of this particular imagery.

In this imagery that you have presented yourself, you present yourself with the familiarity of another individual that you within this particular focus hold a relationship with, and this is a familiar element within the imagery to you. It continues with the theme of the dream imagery in conjunction with this shift in consciousness and the interconnectedness of individuals. Therefore, you image the interconnectedness of yourself and this individual by participating in helpfulness with this individual.

Now; within the imagery that you have created, you image that this individual is traveling inside of this strange, so to speak, vehicle and that this vehicle operates in a different capacity from what you view to be the normal operation of similar types of vehicles. Its appearance is different and its operation is different. This is your imagery to yourself in distinction of this particular individual and how this individual creates their reality within this particular focus and the interaction in consciousness that this individual engages within, opening himself to other aspects of consciousness and allowing for the engagement more fully of inner senses.

These rails that the vehicle travels upon, which you view to be slightly dysfunctional and therefore are in need of oiling or greasing, are the symbolization of inner senses that this individual holds, and that in like manner to you all, these inner senses may be facilitating of much creativity and actions within your physical focus, but are in need not necessarily of repair but of exercising and polishing of these inner senses, that they may be functioning much more efficiently than you have allowed them to be functioning previously.

Therefore, you hold the recognition that this individual engages the action of these inner senses and is participating with them, but your action of helpfulness in greasing these rails is the element of your correct interpretation, that you are being helpful to this individual in facilitating their viewing of their own belief systems and identifying certain belief systems that may be creating less of an efficient movement with these inner senses.

You view the vehicle itself to be different than your usual vehicles, for the vehicle is your symbolization of the individual himself, his physical manifestation, and as you view his manifestation to be slightly different from other individuals, you image this within your dream state as a different type or unusual type of vehicle.” [session 306, August 09, 1998]

TOM: “… we were having a discussion, Lawrence or Vic and several of us in a chat, and I was explaining about using out-of-body to enter other regions or using dreams to work with beliefs, and there seems to be an area where I guess I wasn’t explaining it right. I was wondering if you had any comments on working with beliefs in dreams or from out-of-body, projecting into other regions as Regional Area 2, for instance.

ELIAS: You may be using this out-of-body or projections in consciousness quite efficiently to be addressing to your belief systems, to be identifying belief systems, and also to be offering yourself more information. This would be what you may term to be a stepping stone or a link in the area of merging the objective and subjective awarenesses, bringing both of these areas of awareness into your objective knowing.

Now; let me express that this type of projection moves you into an area that facilitates much action within consciousness, for not only do you move yourself into an area that is more likened to simultaneous time, but you also automatically offer yourself more of a clear awareness of your own inner senses. You do not block your inner senses quite so strongly within these projections in consciousness. You allow yourself to tap into your own abilities of accessing and interpreting your own inner senses. This is an automatic byproduct of moving into the area and action of projection.

This be one of the reasons that I am encouraging of this action, for not only does it offer you the opportunity to view more of your own abilities and therefore offers you the opportunity to be acknowledging of yourself and trusting of yourself, but it also offers you the viewing and the experiencing of your own tapping into the working orders of these inner senses, and as you practice in this area, you also, within your objective state, so to speak, or your objective awareness, become more and more sensitized to these inner senses.

Your attention moves in the direction of ‘between’ and not so very singularly focused in the one area of objective awareness, but allows you to be recognizing more of your subjective communications. Your inner senses of telepathy, of conceptualization, of time differentials, and your empathic sense are much more heightened, and as I have expressed previously, the more that you engage in practicing with these inner senses, the more sensitized you shall become to them, and you shall offer yourself much more of an easement in the identification and use of these inner senses.

Your dream state also is quite facilitating in this area. This, once again, be the reason that I am encouraging of this dream mission, for this is another avenue that may be accessed in merging these two aspects of consciousness into more of an awareness, that you may manipulate within your objective physical focus.” [session 311, September 01, 1998]

ELIAS: “You guard yourselves. You do not allow the freedom of your expression, for you fear how this shall be perceived by another individual. You shall guard how you speak, what energy you project, how you think, for you hold an awareness that thought is energy, and although other individuals do not engage their inner sense of telepathy and actively engage in mind-reading with you, you DO hold an awareness that in some subjective manner THEY hold an awareness of your energy, which you project through your thought processes, which is translated as energy projected outward from your physical form in the direction of other individuals.

And do not delude yourselves into the thought process that other individuals are unaware of your projections of energy! It is unnecessary to physically view, to see or hear or touch energy, to KNOW that it is present and to KNOW that it is being manipulated.

You all have encountered experiences with other individuals in which you KNOW what another individual is thinking, and they may say nothing. You may not allow yourselves to engage this continuously, but you ALL have created this experience within your focus. Not one individual has not experienced this particular action! It is natural to you. It is a movement of your inner senses, which ARE natural to you. You merely do not open yourselves to actively engaging these inner senses continuously, but regardless that you notice the workings of these inner senses, they ARE working and you DO allow yourselves to be connecting to their workings occasionally.

Therefore, you hold an awareness that it matters not that another individually, physically, audibly expresses to you. You hold an awareness of their energy and of their thought processes.

(Firmly) There are no secrets within essence!

You may move in the direction within physical focus of fooling yourselves and deceiving yourselves that you hold the ability to be creating secrets from other individuals, but within essence there are no secrets, for there are no judgments. And in this, it matters not what you choose to be creating! You create your secrets, for you hold duplicity and you engage this belief system. You do not move in the direction of secretiveness if you are not creating a judgment that you have engaged something bad or unacceptable or that you fear other individuals shall place a judgment upon, but you have already placed a judgment upon your very creation! This be the reason that you are creating of this shift and that you are addressing to these belief systems, for your own freedoms.

How very often do you each engage the thought of how very liberating it may be that you may express yourselves without limitation? And if you are accepting belief systems you discontinue judgment, and therefore you MAY express yourselves in all of your creations, in all of your thought process, in all of your emotions, in all of your directions of all of your expressions, for it shall matter not. It shall not be hurtful to other individuals, for they shall not be engaging judgment, and it shall not be hurtful to yourself, for YOU shall not be engaging judgment, and THIS is the point.” [session 328, October 03, 1998]

DALE: “I’d like to talk a little bit about my empathic sense that I’m playing with lately. First, I intuit that telepathy is an aspect of the empathic sense?

ELIAS: Telepathy is another inner sense.

DALE: It’s a separate inner sense?

ELIAS: Correct.

DALE: Hmm! Okay....

ELIAS: Telepathy is your inner sense which allows you the ability to focus your attention upon the area of consciousness – with another individual – which creates thought; the energy of thought, which is reality, as you are aware. In this, exercising your telepathic sense is exercising your ability to be connecting and accessing another individual’s creation of their thought process, therefore allowing you a greater understanding of their perception as influenced through thought.

The empathic sense is your inner sense which allows you the ability to merge with another individual or thing, so to speak, and to be experiencing their experience. Therefore, if you are merging with another individual, as [an] example, you shall hold an awareness of yourself continued, but you shall also experience their experience fully; feel all of their feelings, all of their sense data – which they connect to through their outer senses – all of their physical and emotional feelings, and their energy centers and a communication of them.

DALE: Hmm! Feeling the energy centers ... that’s a good idea! I remember doing it with a dolphin and I also remember doing it with James twice within dreams, and actually, I’d like to know more about the connection between me and James. It seems like that sense came very easily; it comes very easily for me with James. Do our essences merge, or are we fragments of the same essence in counterpart action now, or ...?

ELIAS: No, you are not fragmented of the same essence, but your essences do engage the action of mergence in what you would express to be ‘at times.’ There is an interaction that occurs in ‘mergence intermingling,’ so to speak, therefore offering exchange of experiences and – translated into physical language – an exchange of concepts, in a manner of speaking.

This is a figurative term in relation to essence, for essence does not necessarily engage concepts in the manner that you think of within physical terms, but this would be the closest designation to the exchange which occurs within this type of mergence with these essences. This also allows the focuses more of an ease to be interconnecting.

But let me express to you also, do not be discounting of self and your creation and your ability within your individual focus, for much of this action that you experience and the ease of your participation in this empathic mergence with this individual is created by yourself and is agreed upon in compliance by your partner.

Therefore, I express to you, do not be ‘cosmitizing’ (grinning) your own abilities!

DALE: Cosmitizing! I’m gonna have to look up that word!

MARY: Oh, I like that!

DALE: Cosmitizing! Okay. Thank you for the telepathy information too, ’cause I feel like that gives me a touchstone in a way, ’cause I couldn’t figure out where I should point my consciousness. And I was mistaken, thinking that it was part of the empathic.

ELIAS: It is merely a misunderstanding. It is not a mistake!

DALE: Ah! Touché!

MARY: Oh no! (Laughter, and Elias chuckles)

DALE: Does this have anything to do with how I talk for animals?

ELIAS: Yes.

DALE: Okay. That’s almost like a lighter version of it, in a sense?

ELIAS: It is a slightly different action in your participation, but it is the same engagement, of partially allowing yourself to be merging with a creature and therefore allowing yourself access to information in concern to this creature.

As I have stated, you may be exercising your empathic sense with ANY element of your reality. It matters not that you consider the element to be living or not living. You may merge with a rock or a wall, and you may be allowing yourself the experience of these objects, for they also hold consciousness and ARE experiencing.” [session 376, March 21, 1999]

PAUL: “… another question about this area of translation and the use of inner senses – my own inner senses – in the context of my own what I term to be out-of-body experiences, or projections of consciousness, and you and I have discussed some of these experiences I’ve had, and I’m just beginning to be able to formulate some further questions for my own understanding, based on my own experience.

So, I think I’d like to ask about the three primary or fundamental inner senses that you’ve talked about – conceptualization, differential time, and the empathic sense – and try to look at some of my experiences and get a handle, a sense of using them. I guess in essence, I’m talking about what would be analogous to my physical senses of vision and hearing, which I have plenty of examples that I can recognize. But in this state ... and you’ve told me that these experiences occur in Regional Area 1, and that it’s a much wider area than we're presently aware of in terms of time frameworks and other dimensions that are very closely related, but in a much wider way and in an exciting way to become aware of, that they're there for further exploration.

So, one question specifically about the sense of conceptualization. I had a dream decades ago, twenty years ago perhaps, in which I believe I merged with Igor Stravinsky, the composer, the twentieth century composer’s world view. And the reason I say that is because when I woke up and was still half asleep/half awake, I had the sense that I could orchestrate in terms of Stravinsky, that I could compose music like him, and that it was WAY beyond my – at that time – present ability to understand those concepts. So I’m wondering, in that experience, did I actually merge and bring back, translating, so to speak, using my conceptual sense?

ELIAS: Yes, this is an example of engaging conceptualization.

Conceptualization is quite a different action from your empathic sense. Your empathic sense, as you are aware, is a mergence with any other element of consciousness, and creates an allowance for you to be objectively assimilating the experience of that aspect of consciousness, regardless of how it may be manifest.

Now; within conceptualization, this is an allowance of mergence with action; an enabling of yourself, in a manner of speaking – as you identify yourself within this physical dimension – to be merging with the action of a creation.

(Intently) Concepts are a creation, and in this, as you allow yourself to be merging with the action of the creation – or the concept – you experience the action itself, and this offers you a different type of information. This offers you the ability to be creating different elements objectively within your physical focus without instruction, so to speak.

In a manner of speaking, hypothetically I may express to you that as you offered yourself that moment of conceptualization – as you created the translation into objective awareness – were you to allow yourself in that moment an expression of freedom, you would have allowed yourself the objective manifestation of the creation without the necessity of objective understanding or learning.

PAUL: So in objective terms, what would that mean? Would that mean I would be able to sit at the piano and perhaps play....

ELIAS: Create.

PAUL: Create. Improvise in the style of Stravinsky?

ELIAS: In the design.

PAUL: In the design. Interesting! In that conceptualization, was that a mergence – you talked about action, creation, concept – with what you’ve talked about as a world view or energy deposit?

ELIAS: You may engage this action in that type of energy configuration, but you may also create this mergence in conceptualization, not necessarily in conjunction with an actual individual or world view, so to speak.

PAUL: So what would I be connecting with? I’m trying to identify.

ELIAS: In objective terminology, you would be connecting with a concept, an idea.

PAUL: And that concept or idea has a ... is it a counterpart or a blueprint or ... I’m connecting, conceptualizing with a subjective energy?

ELIAS: You are, but you may also incorporate an objective energy in that action also. It is not limited to the subjective awareness.

PAUL: Okay, that’s clear. Thank you. Another question then about the empathic sense.

I have been for years merging with objects. This is just something I do for fun; for example, just diving through a floor, sticking my arm in a wall, literally, in out-of-body state, so to speak, and moving and feeling the resistance of the energy of this wall, or diving into a lawn and breathing the dirt, so to speak, the earth. I just wanted to get your feedback, perhaps validation, that that is the sense that I’m using primarily during those actions.

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

PAUL: Great. Okay, so that’s a good example of that.

And then, differential time, this third fundamental sense, I guess I look at it in two primary ways, such as when, when/where, in terms of perhaps objective terms, but also duration, and I know you’ve talked a lot about compressed and expanded time, and certainly in this state of projection, the time sense is very different.

There’s one scenario I want to bounce off of you today in which I connected with a focus of mine – I suspect it was a woman – and in the moment, it just seemed ... I was asking her, ‘What time do you come from?’ I guess that’s where I was at, at the moment. In other words, I sensed she was not from this present now or time framework that I live in. She did not answer me, but I’m wondering if that is the sort of thing, in terms of time sense, that I was attempting to engage in that action.

ELIAS: This inner sense is not necessarily merely the identification of differences within time frameworks or sensing differences within time frameworks, but the actual allowance of yourself to be recognizing the flexibility of time and your ability to be manipulating it; that time is an invention or a creation of your perception within this physical dimension, and that it is quite elastic and that it is also quite changeable, and may vary considerably between individuals.

You look to the element of time as being an absolute, as you look at many elements within your physical dimension as absolutes, but I express to you that it is not an absolute.

In this, it may be quite changeable and bendable by each individual, regardless that you may be participating in an officially accepted reality within a particular physical dimension. Even within the guidelines of your officially accepted reality, the configuration of linear time may be altered.

PAUL: Interesting, and clear.

So one follow-up question to that would be, I have experiences where my objective memory may or may not contain lots of specifics, but I wake up from the experience with the sense of bigness or vastness. Would that be an example of manipulating time – the sense of having experienced an entire book’s worth of experiences in several hours?

ELIAS: Indirectly; not ... not directly. But indirectly, it may be identified in conjunction with this inner sense.

This is an identification of a momentary recognition of the being of essence, and not necessarily an action which is engaged through this particular inner sense.

As I have stated, the action which is incorporated by this inner sense is to in actuality be manipulating of time itself, and creating the translation of that manipulation of time in energy into objective terms, in which you hold an objective recognition that you have bent time or that you have altered its configuration.

You DO this action quite frequently, and you express and experience it in objective terms, but you do not allow yourself to be noticing. You ARE accomplishing this reconfiguration of time or manipulation of time very often, and you are accomplishing this in objective terms, but you are not allowing yourself an objective awareness of it as you are creating it.

And this would be an element of what you move into now within the action of this shift, to be becoming more aware of what you are creating objectively and to be noticing what you are automatically creating already.

ALL of what you hold in abilities is being expressed already. You merely do not allow yourself an objective recognition of the abilities that you hold.

It is not the situation that you are creating this shift in consciousness to be allowing yourselves new abilities or to be creating new abilities, or abilities that you have not held previously. You already hold all of these abilities and are already exercising them! You merely do not allow yourself to be noticing or to be objectively aware of what you are already creating.

And I am not expressing to you that you are creating entirely subjectively. I am expressing to you that you are already creating objectively, and you are not allowing yourself an awareness of what you are creating.

This be the reason that I am expressing to individuals so very often that there is no element of your reality that is hidden from you. There is no subconscious or unconscious or beneath conscious or below conscious or removed consciousness from you. You merely do not pay attention. You merely do not notice what you are already creating. It is all available to you objectively, and you ARE objectively creating all that you seek to be creating effortlessly. You merely do not notice and you do not pay attention.

And this is the point – allowing yourselves to be dropping the veils that you have created and to be allowing yourselves the objective recognition and noticing of what you are already creating, and in this, you allow yourselves to be expanding what you are creating, for you allow yourselves more of your expression of creativity in what you are already expressing in ability.

PAUL: Thanks for the reminder! (They both laugh) It would seem that in terms of this shift in consciousness, in a sense, that we’ve been the sleepwalkers and that we're beginning to awaken, so to speak, in terms of this noticing that you're talking about, and noticing how we're creating these things automatically and effortlessly, so that we have greater ability to explore and manipulate.

ELIAS: Quite! You are correct.

PAUL: Just to finish up on my inner senses questions, I wanted to make sure ... to date, you have also discussed four other characteristics of inner senses that you’ve termed telepathy, tone and touch, and clairvoyance, and I just wanted to make sure that I haven’t missed any. Are those seven basically what you’ve offered thus far?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

PAUL: Thank you.

ELIAS: (Grinning) Although I may also express to you that once again, this is a complication of the simplistic element!

All of these may be expressed within the three initial inner senses that I have offered to you, but within the recognition of your desire for complication and classification, that you may hold objectively an understanding, I have also offered further classification of the simplification! (Chuckling) (8)

PAUL: (Laughing) That’s very clear, and I thank you again for that.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.

PAUL: I do have one more question about my projection adventures. You’ve mentioned using the inner senses objectively. An example of that is involved with processes that go on in our physical bodies, like digestion or hair growth or our heart beat and breathing, and that’s clear to me, that at least experientially, evidentially ... examples of inner senses in very objective and useful terms.

So, I have a sense of no thought process being involved in my heart beating presently or my breath and so forth. But in out-of-body state, in this projection state, I’m still quite objectively present. I very much have an objective thought process. Are there analogous no-thought aspects of inner senses that are still happening in this state of projection?

ELIAS: Yes. (Pause)

PAUL: Can you give me some further information on those processes that ... of those no-thought processes in terms of inner sensing in that state?

ELIAS: Think to your pond once again. In this, your action of projection is similar to your physical body diving into your pond, and the movement of the water all about you – as an element of you, not as a separate entity – is comparable to the movement of your inner senses as you engage projections, for as you are creating any type of projection activity within consciousness, your inner senses are engaging what you may term to be ‘feelers,’ so to speak, in objective terms, that spread as fingers out from yourself, or ripples through your water, or currents that you create within your water.

And these movements of energy within your inner senses connect with different elements of the action of your projection, allowing you to be engaging different elements of expressions of these inner senses, which offers you more information. You engage empathically, you engage conceptually, and you engage the aspect of altering time frameworks.

PAUL: Thank you. One final question – I just realized I had another one.

In one of the Oversoul Seven books, Grandpa George is a character who experiments with out-of-body states, and he had a technique – and I recognize it’s a method – where he would project, and he would issue a mental command to the environment that he found himself in, of ‘Hallucinations be gone.’ (9)

I wanted to talk a little bit about this condition of what we might term hallucinations that we as a focus personality project into this environment, and also in an attempt to reduce ... well, to make them go away, to get to what is present in the environment that is not just a projection of ourselves, but a projection obviously of other aspects that are inside.

So, I wonder if you would comment on this action of what we project as so-called hallucinations when we do project, and the utility or usefulness of those, and the action perhaps of diminishing them to pursue other activities.

ELIAS: (Chuckling, and Paul laughs) I shall express to you, quite simply, there are no hallucinations!

PAUL: (Cracking up) Oh great! Thank you! (10)

ELIAS: You are quite welcome.” (Chuckling) [session 506, November 24, 1999]

RODNEY: “I spoke to you about the name Cheryl recently. You gave me some very valuable information regarding my relationship to that sound, and I spoke to you of the girl who gave us messages during our healing circle.

ELIAS: Correct.

RODNEY: I’m wondering, I was so filled with the energy that she was expressing that I hardly even heard the words she said. It occurred to me that if I knew what words she had said, I might better remember that event and better objectify it, and I was hoping that you might be able to share those words with me. Is that possible?

ELIAS: It is possible, but it is defeating of the point.

Let me express to you, Zacharie [Rodney], that what you have allowed yourself to be experiencing is the exchange of energy, which needs no verbal communication in your language.

Let me also express to you that the communication that you offer to yourselves and to each other in energy is, in a manner of speaking, much more telling and impactful than that which you offer within the confines of your language, for many elements may be expressed within energy that you do not hold words for within your language.

Your language is limiting. You have not created words yet for many types of communications that are consistent with your movement in relation to the activity of this shift and your widening of awareness. This is another aspect of this shift in consciousness.

Now; let me express to you, many individuals previously have inquired of myself as to inner senses and the activization of these inner senses. Many individuals have inquired concerning your telepathic abilities, or what you identify as telepathic abilities.

Now; this element of telepathy would be what we may identify as a type of subdivision of your empathic sense.

I am aware that I have previously identified this as an inner sense, which has been interpreted as a separate and individual inner sense in and of itself, in a manner of speaking. But in actuality, it is an element of your inner sense of your empathic ability, and it is not limited to that which you define as mind-reading or the ability to tap into the thoughts of another individual.

This action of telepathy is your ability to be, in your physical terms, reading or assimilating the communication of energy. Energy may be expressed in thoughts, and that is one element of this action or this ability that you hold that you term to be telepathy. There are other aspects of this ability, and those aspects incorporate the understanding of the communication of energy, which surpasses your verbal communication in language.

Now; this holds importance and significance in your experience with this individual, for it offers you the opportunity to recognize the limitations of your language, but not merely the limitations of your language. It also allows you the recognition objectively of what you are beginning to be incorporating objectively as you insert this shift into your objective reality, for you are incorporating actions that are not requiring of what has been established previously as the officially accepted mode, in a manner of speaking. This applies to all of your reality.

This has been an example in your experience, allowing you to be interactive in the communication and to override your automatic attention, in a manner of speaking, for your automatic focus of attention moves in the direction of the familiar, and what is familiar in communication is language. Therefore, you focus your attention in interaction with other individuals quite strongly in the mode of language.

You pride yourselves and acknowledge yourselves in what you identify as your abilities to be listening. You credit yourselves in your participation in interaction with other individuals if you are incorporating the action of listening, for you also identify that if you are listening, you are offering yourself understanding, or you are offering yourself the opportunity to be altering your perception by incorporating information from another individual through their perception.

At times, you do allow yourself this action. Many times you may be incorporating the action of what you identify as listening, and in actuality, what you are incorporating is physically, audibly hearing another individual, but you are not necessarily assimilating and accepting the energy that the other individual is projecting.

In this, as you override your automatic movement of attention to the language and turn your attention to the energy and allow yourself to temporarily engage this incorporation of telepathy – be remembering, this is not merely thought-reading – as you engage that action, you allow yourself the reception of the fullness of the energy which is being projected by the other individual through their perception.

This is beneficial to you in more than one manner.

It not only acknowledges to you that you hold the ability to be interacting with another individual engaging this element of telepathy, which quite efficiently may translate the communication through energy rather than language or words, but it also allows you to be assimilating an energy exchange in an objective manner.

It includes more of a communication than may be accommodated by your words. It is validating and acknowledging to yourself, and there is also an automatic projection of energy that you offer in return, in a manner of speaking, which is validating and acknowledging to the other individual without verbalization.

This also affords you the opportunity to witness and to participate in an action that you are incorporating into your officially accepted reality within the movement of this shift, which shall become more and more obvious and more and more common in practice.

RODNEY: I thank you so much for that.

ELIAS: You are quite welcome. Therefore, I express to you, allow yourself to draw upon the experience rather than the words.

RODNEY: I think one of the traps I fell into is that I wanted to remember the experience, and I thought that if I knew the words, I would more clearly remember it. But I hear what you’re saying, in that that’s a deception, and would defeat the whole purpose.

ELIAS: Quite, for this is distracting.

RODNEY: It IS distracting, and I myself find words – and frequently the written word that I see along the roads sometimes on signs – distracting. They distract me from the moment and they distract me from what I am truly observing, unless, of course, that is exactly what I want to do.

ELIAS: Quite.

RODNEY: If I want to be reading something, that’s different, but if I’m confronted with signs when I’m trying to do something else, I find that profoundly distracting.

ELIAS: This is the element of familiarity, which you are moving away from.” (Chuckling) [session 583, March 18, 2000]

Digests: find out more about inner senses; differential time.

Digests: find out more about inner senses; empathic.



End Notes:

(1) Paul’s note: I make this distinction based upon the following:

PAUL: “Just to finish up on my inner senses questions, I wanted to make sure ... to date, you have also discussed four other characteristics of inner senses [besides conceptualization, differential time, and empathic] that you’ve termed telepathy, tone and touch, and clairvoyance, and I just wanted to make sure that I haven’t missed any. Are those seven basically what you’ve offered thus far?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

PAUL: Thank you.” [session 506, November 24, 1999]

Elias has been clear that there are three broad spectrums in which our inner senses function; empathic, conceptual, and time-based. The additional four aspects – clairvoyance, telepathy, tone, and touch – are subsets of these main three spectrums and are thus complementary, not separate, aspects of our inner senses.

(2) Paul’s note: a reference to the work of Seth/Jane Roberts, who originally presented the concept of (nine) inner senses in The Seth Material, (1970), Chapter 19, The Inner Senses – What They Are and How to Use Them.

Seth/Jane offered the following types of inner senses:

  1. Inner Vibrational Touch
  2. Psychological Time
  3. Perception of Past, Present, and Future
  4. Conceptual Sense
  5. Cognition of Knowledgeable Essence
  6. Innate Knowledge of Basic Reality
  7. Expansion or Contraction of the Tissue Capsule
  8. Disentanglement from Camouflage
  9. Diffusion by the Energy Personality

(3) Paul’s note: referring again to the work of Seth/Jane Roberts.

(4) Paul’s note: the clarity exercise is a tool that sharpens the physical senses by enhancing our ability to concentrate, observe, and focus in the present moment. While fine-tuning the five physical senses, its purpose is also to maintain the clarity of focus in altered states and projections of consciousness.

ELIAS: “The point of the exercise in clarity is to be allowing you the opportunity to be manipulating outer senses, which may also offer you more of an understanding of how to be manipulating inner senses more efficiently and to be using your inner senses in conjunction with each other as you use your outer senses in conjunction with each other, but you do not allow yourselves to be efficiently manipulating your OUTER senses, which you are quite familiar with!

Therefore, I have offered that particular exercise that you may become more familiar with manipulating these senses that you hold familiarity with, and in this you may offer yourself the opportunity to more efficiently manipulate your inner senses, which shall be offering you more information within consciousness, and also, it shall be helpful to you in manipulating energy within the action of this shift.” [session 336, October 27, 1998]

Exercises: find out more about the clarity exercise.

(5) Paul’s note: Elias did give a name for this inner sense two weeks later in session 166; differential time.

Transcripts: find out more about this excerpt in session 166, April 20, 1997.

(6) Paul’s note: this is the only reference to the inner senses of tone and touch that Elias made until that time. So I asked him to clarify what he meant during session 336, October 27, 1998. His response was:

PAUL: “I do have another question about some information you’ve given on the inner senses, and it’s from session 162, and you say, ‘You have been offered exercises to exercise your empathic sense, your sense of conceptualization, and also your inner sense of tone and touch, this being what you have exercised with our example of clarity.’ That sort of confuses me, and I wonder if you would clarify, in the clarity exercise, the inner sense of tone and touch, what you mean by that? (Pause)

ELIAS: Tone is different from sound. Tone is a vibrational quality, and in this, your outer sense is a physical mirror image in its quality of connecting with sound. Within, in the inner senses, tone is the vibrational qualities that are held within consciousness, which you may access and this may offer you information to the different qualities of different expressions of essence, although this particular type of tapping into within inner senses is more difficult for your understanding, for this is requiring of more translation within your thought process, for if you are allowing yourself to be accessing in conjunction with your conceptualization, you may more easily be understanding what you are accessing.

Certain elements of consciousness are much more difficultly translated into your physical language. Your thought processes are also a form of physical language. It is a translation of energy, and this is your means of communication to yourself and to other individuals, within physical terms. But much of consciousness is expressed through tone, and this is not so very easily translated into your thought energy. Therefore, it is not as easily accessed, although it is possible and you do hold the ability within physical focus to be accessing this information.

The point of the exercise in clarity is to be allowing you the opportunity to be manipulating outer senses, which may also offer you more of an understanding of how to be manipulating inner senses more efficiently and to be using your inner senses in conjunction with each other as you use your outer senses in conjunction with each other, but you do not allow yourselves to be efficiently manipulating your OUTER senses, which you are quite familiar with!

Therefore, I have offered that particular exercise that you may become more familiar with manipulating these senses that you hold familiarity with, and in this you may offer yourself the opportunity to more efficiently manipulate your inner senses, which shall be offering you more information within consciousness, and also, it shall be helpful to you in manipulating energy within the action of this shift.

PAUL: Great. That was very helpful in terms of tone, Elias. That clears up your reference there in the sense of tone, but could you comment on the comment you made about tone and touch? Touch seems so physically focused. I can understand the word tone in terms of subjective state, but touch seems so physical. Is the word touch connected to an inner sense somehow?

ELIAS: Yes. This also moves in the direction of empathic, although it is slightly different from the empathic sense, for it moves more in the direction of the allowance of connection with other aspects of consciousness and other essences in mergence.

Just as within your objective physical terms, you look to your sense of touch as an expression of connection with another individual or any other object or element within your physical focus. Within inner senses, this also would be the case, but within the expression of mergence, which allows you to be accessing more information through experience. This may be, as I have stated, moved into in conjunction with your empathic sense and may be offering you more fullness in the area of experiencing other elements of consciousness, not merely other essences or other individuals as focuses of essence.” [session 336, October 27, 1998]

Exercises: find out more about the clarity exercise.

(7) Vic’s note: the new game is what is commonly termed a past-life regression, but what we call a TFE – trans-focal encounter. We’ve been facilitating each other in TFE’s for a few years now. No, we have no training, and yes, it works anyway! Our basic “method” is for the facilitator to talk the subject through a general body-relaxation process. Then we encourage the subject to connect with whatever aspect of themselves they choose, and if they allow themselves to do this, we ask questions about their experience. The operative word is “allow.” Quite often the subject feels as if they are “making it up,” which they are not, according to the dead guy!

Digests: find out more about the new game (TFEs).

(8) Paul’s note: and just to complete the loop here; the reason I asked this question was even though Elias has been clear about the three primary inner senses from the beginning, he also has used the terms, “telepathy,” “tone and touch,” and “clairvoyance” in various sessions when discussing them further. So I was curious if they were additional primary inner senses or just aspects of the three primary inner senses of empathic, conceptualization, and differential time. It seems clear that they are secondary aspects in the context of this explanation.

Here’s an excerpt from an earlier session (#336 October 27, 1998) that may shed some additional light on my intent in this line of inquiry:

PAUL: I do have another question about some information you’ve given on the inner senses, and it’s from session 162, and you say, “You have been offered exercises to exercise your empathic sense, your sense of conceptualization, and also your inner sense of tone and touch, this being what you have exercised with our example of clarity.” That sort of confuses me, and I wonder if you would clarify – in the clarity exercise – the inner sense of tone and touch. What do you mean by that? (Pause)

ELIAS: Tone is different from sound. Tone is a vibrational quality, and in this, your outer sense is a physical mirror image in its quality of connecting with sound. Within, in the inner senses, tone is the vibrational qualities that are held within consciousness, which you may access, and this may offer you information to the different qualities of different expressions of essence, although this particular type of tapping into within inner senses is more difficult for your understanding, for this is requiring of more translation within your thought process, for if you are allowing yourself to be accessing in conjunction with your conceptualization, you may more easily be understanding what you are accessing.

Certain elements of consciousness are much more difficultly translated into your physical language. Your thought processes are also a form of physical language. It is a translation of energy, and this is your means of communication to yourself and to other individuals, within physical terms. But much of consciousness is expressed through tone, and this is not so very easily translated into your thought energy. Therefore, it is not as easily accessed, although it is possible and you do hold the ability within physical focus to be accessing this information.

The point of the exercise in clarity is to be allowing you the opportunity to be manipulating outer senses, which may also offer you more of an understanding of how to be manipulating inner senses more efficiently and to be using your inner senses in conjunction with each other as you use your outer senses in conjunction with each other, but you do not allow yourselves to be efficiently manipulating your OUTER senses, which you are quite familiar with!

Therefore, I have offered that particular exercise, that you may become more familiar with manipulating these senses that you hold familiarity with, and in this you may offer yourself the opportunity to more efficiently manipulate your inner senses, which shall be offering you more information within consciousness, and also, it shall be helpful to you in manipulating energy within the action of this shift.

PAUL: Great. That was very helpful in terms of tone, Elias. That clears up your reference there in the sense of tone, but could you comment on the comment you made about tone and touch? Touch seems so physically focused, and tone doesn’t. I can understand the word tone in terms of subjective state, but touch seems so physical. Is the word touch connected to an inner sense somehow?

ELIAS: Yes. This also moves in the direction of empathic, although it is slightly different from the empathic sense, for it moves more in the direction of the allowance of connection with other aspects of consciousness and other essences in mergence.

Just as within your objective physical terms, you look to your sense of touch as an expression of connection with another individual or any other object or element within your physical focus, within inner senses this also would be the case, but within the expression of mergence, which allows you to be accessing more information through experience. This may be, as I have stated, moved into in conjunction with your empathic sense and may be offering you more fullness in the area of experiencing other elements of consciousness, not merely other essences or other individuals as focuses of essence. [session 336, October 27, 1998]

(9) Paul’s note: the character “Grandpa George” Brainbridge is from Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time, Jane Roberts’s Oversoul Seven trilogy. George is a late 19th century dentist who uses nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to explore out-of-body states.

The following excerpts were in the back of my mind when I asked this question about the action of “hallucinations” within the out-of-body state:

“Without thinking about it, Seven hallucinated a pipe for George, who didn’t realize that he was still in his dream body; then Seven said moodily, “I’ve got to think my way out of this because your grandson – he must be your grandson – needs me and I don’t even know what trouble he’s in.”

“Ah,” said George, dreamily.

“Ah?” said Seven, a bit loudly. “A lot of help you are; sniffing gas and hallucinating demons and God knows what....” [Chapter 2, pg. 436]

And later ...

“The room was the same, but again the furniture was different. Soft lights emerged from the ceiling, though George couldn’t see their source. A group of people, looking as if they were on a trip, stood looking at the room in which he stood. There were ohs and ahs, but no one saw him. Was he hallucinating all this? George wondered. “Let all hallucinations vanish,” he commanded mentally, with more confidence than he felt.

“Nothing happened. George gasped; if he was right, then the people and room would have vanished if he were creating them himself. So he must have outdone himself. But where was he, and what was going on?” [Chapter 13, pg. 509]

(10) Paul’s note: you never know what direction Elias will take during a session. Usually he builds on previous concepts and interactions. However, he occasionally goes into what I perceive to be “the Zen of Elias.” By that, I mean Elias will use paradox and/or contradiction in the form of unexpected responses. These nudge and even force the rational mind into a non-rational area, as the rational mind alone can never provide ALL of the answers. The initial results are intentional confusion that eventually give way to further understanding.

I had covered mostly rational ground to this point in the session, and the moment he went into that “there are no ...” direction, it made me belly-laugh, as I am beginning to recognize the intent behind an unexpected response. Still, Elias’ timing was perfect. I was caught off-guard and fumbling for another question to ask. He immediately ended the session as if to emphasize this “final” exchange. And I must say, it made quite an impression on me as a reminder of those times when I think too much.
