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: “Musical notes are not the same as tone within essence, although they may be symbolized in the same manner as the word of James, if you are understanding. You may symbolize the tone by a word or with sound of musical notes if you are choosing, or you may symbolize the tone through color. The tone is none of these. These would each be symbols of the tone that is the identification of the personality of essence.” [session 138, December 08, 1996]
ELIAS: “Even within essence you hold your own tone, which is unique to you and not the same as other essences. The qualities may be the same, but the tone is different. You each hold your own individual tone in essence, which is the whole of you, the sum of all of your focuses, not merely within this particular physical dimension but all other dimensions and all areas of consciousness.” [session 270, March 19, 1998]
ELIAS: “YOU ARE ESSENCE. Essence is not some ‘thing’ outside of you, and you are not a ‘piece’ of essence.
“Therefore, essence is not the greater part that you are merely a portion of. You yourself are all of essence. Your attention is merely focused in this particular direction.
“Now; let me express to you, individuals confuse themselves in the concept of essence, and reinforce this confusion as they inquire of an essence name or an essence tone.
“Once you are receiving objectively an essence name, this allows you quite automatically and quite comfortably to move into alignment with the beliefs that are already established and already held within you, and allows you a comfortable and familiar direction of separation.” [session 494, October 27, 1999]
JOSEPH: “Why does this color, a light orange salmon color, affect me so much?”
ELIAS: “This moves in the direction of your essence tone. This would be the color that is the signature color, so to speak, of you.” [session 497, November 01, 1999]
ELIAS: “You may present yourself with an object, and through your perception, which creates your reality, you may view that particular object within one moment to be blue. You may alter your perception. You may view the very same object, and within the subsequent moment, you may express that you view that object to be violet.
“You are viewing the same object. You are creating that object through your perception in the same form. Your attention is focused in the same direction, but you have altered your perception in that attention slightly. Therefore, what you create within one moment is blue, and what you create within another moment is violet. In this, you remain the same. The object remains the same, other than its color. Your attention remains the same, in a manner of speaking.
“In like manner, within different moments, dependent upon the movement of the focus and the attention of the focus – as it is affecting of essence, just as your perception, which creates your reality, is affecting of you, but they may not be separated – as the attention of the focus is affecting of essence, the tonal quality within that moment may be altered, or the alignment of family may be altered.
“Or, dependent upon the expression of the focus and the manifestation of the focus, the family which the focus is belonging to may be affected, for the attention may be directed to the expression of one essence within one moment and to another essence within another moment, and if the focus is a projection, a manifestation of combined essences, it may be turning its attention within different moments and it may be expressing different essence families.
“We shall be incorporating more information concerning this subject matter futurely.
“But briefly, I offer this to you, that you may hold an understanding that you have merely incorporated the initial identifications of these concepts of essence names, essence tones, essence families, essence colors, focus colors, other focuses of essences, chapter focuses of essence, or essence as consciousness.
“You have incorporated the beginnings of your objective understanding, which presents you with the viewing of the flatness, so to speak, in like manner to the picture which is painted as the representation of reality, that which you define as two-dimensional, in your very physical terminology.
“The painting incorporates the flatness, for it is merely the initial representation. The creation of your actual reality is what you term to be three- or four-dimensional, which incorporates more depth, and as you have moved into this millennium, now you incorporate more of the depth in objective reality, not merely subjective reality.” [session 571, February 25, 2000]
ELIAS: “Your signature color is actually a translation of a vibrational quality which is exhibited by the essence, which translates within your physical dimension as a color which represents the vibrational quality of that particular essence.
“The focus color is the color that you generate in this focus that signifies your energy, its general expression of energy. You project different vibrational qualities which translate into different colors through your different energy centers and these project energy outwardly to your energy field.
“Now; your color expression, which is generated by your energy centers, is superposed upon the color expression which is generated by you within your energy field, as the expression of you within your totality, so to speak, of this focus. It is a vibrational quality. Each individual expresses a particular vibrational quality which translates into a color.” [session 994, January 22, 2002]
ELIAS: “You each incorporate a vibrational tone. This is a vibrational resonating that you emanate from your essence. In this, just as within a musical chord, you strike vibrational qualities that connect with other essences or other consciousness, as all things incorporate consciousness. Therefore, you may connect a vibrational tone quality not only with another essence or individual, but also with what you perceive to be ‘things’; a tree, a stone, a flower; for all of these ‘things’ incorporate consciousness. Therefore, they all possess a vibrational tone. (Pause)
CATHY: So the actual sound of the word doesn’t have to match the other word ... or does it?
ELIAS: Correct. You are basing a correlation upon physical sound. This is not necessary. I use the example of a physical sound, within a musical chord, as an example that you will understand.” [session 65, January 07, 1996]
ELIAS: “Each manifestation is a focus. Some incorporate a type of consciousness that aligns with what you recognize as your personal individual vibrational tone. Other elements of your essence incorporate other vibrational tones. They are all incorporated within your individual essence, but some align with the vibrational tone that you, within this physical manifestation, identify with and recognize. I have expressed that you incorporate many facets, many splinters, many counterparts. It is very complicated, in your terms, to be expressing of the differences of tones.
I will express an analogy that you may identify with, within musical tones. Some notes harmonize and compliment each other. To your perception of sound, they seem to fit and belong together. Others seem to be ‘off,’ and do not seem to blend as well with certain musical notes. They all are musical tones. They all incorporate the same quality, but some ‘move off’ within their vibrational waves, so to speak.” [session 83, April 03, 1996]
ELIAS: “In this, you may view your subjective self as your Source Event, upon an individual scale. You may view your individual energy centers as your mass events, upon an individual scale; for within them, they generate your mass events within the consciousness of your physical being; and they are very powerful. I have expressed, many times to you previously, of the power that you hold. You are beginning to view just how very powerful and connected you are!
I also express to you, once again; I do not speak to you figuratively unless I am instructing you specifically that I am speaking figuratively! Therefore, my incorporation of your color vibrations, and the placement therein, is literal. I also am understanding that this may be seemingly, within your objective selves, to be of little importance. I shall be instructing you, it is not of little importance; for each vibrational tone affects a different element of your manifestation, and each holds a different direction in power.” [session 96, May 26, 1996]
ELIAS: “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.
... 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.
VICKI: ... I have a question. I received a communication this week from Jessele [Margot], who asked a question that seems to be in alignment with the subject matter tonight, regarding essence names or tones. In this individual’s experience she has been called different names or tones by different entities or essences, and wonders if it could be that we have a different name within every dimension and perhaps in every focus in each dimension, and also wonders if the essence name relates at all to the essence family.
ELIAS: You do not hold a different tone of essence. You may change the tone that you identify with within essence, which you do not venture to do often, but you do not hold different essence names within different dimensions, although you incorporate different languages within different dimensions. Therefore, it may appear that you hold different names, for you are using words. The tone remains the same.
As has been expressed, each focus holds its own tone which is in alignment with essence. It is the essence tone, but holding its own individual, very slight variation, which is a differentiation of personality. Overall, if you were within physical focus to play a chord upon your musical instrument, you would hear the sound of the chord together; one tone, although incorporating many notes. You may also very slightly alter the tone of this one chord, and to your hearing you may not recognize the alteration. The tone shall be so slightly different that it shall appear to be the same within your recognition, but there is a very slight difference which incorporates the variation of tone within the totality of tone of essence, which allows for individual personality and uniqueness.
You may be offered different essence names by different individuals. This should not present a disturbance to you if you are understanding that you are requesting a word. You are requesting what you identify as a name. This is a translation. It is not the same as the tone. It is the closest translation within your language. Therefore, within a different dimension it may be connected to with a different word. It is dependent upon the focus of the essence exchanging, as to which area it shall connect to. Some essences, within exchange in this manner, may limit their availability of connections of physical focuses. Therefore, they shall offer information that they may connect to and legitimately offer you a word within whatever language being expressed, but it is a translation; this being why I have expressed to you all, from the onset of our sessions, these are unimportant. They are only for your benefit of identification and curiosity within physical focus.
As to their significance in meaning, they mean nothing. They are not significant. What is significant is the tone, which may not be translated fully, identically, or purely into a language. Therefore, you are given a close approximation within translation. This may vary with different translations. As has been stated, it is uncommon to be changing of your tone. It occurs, but it is not common.
Your tone is not determined by essence families. Essence families do not determine any element of you. You move to an essence family in identification of like intent. You are not pulled or created into or born into or manufactured from essence families. This is a magnating to of like intent, and a sharing of. The alignment of essence families changes. Therefore, this has no bearing upon your individual tone, for you change your alignment with essence families as you wish. In this, there is no designation of tone created by essence families. Now; you shall, within tone, magnate to like tone, which magnates to like intent. Therefore, many essences within an individual essence family shall hold similar tone, but it is not a rule.
CAROL: Is tone connected with feeling? What exactly is tone?
ELIAS: Within a translation of physical focus, of this dimension of physical focus, you may interpret tones as being related to feelings, although they are not; for there is no adequate translation within any physical focus of essence tone, for these elements of truths non-physical are non-translatable into physical focus, just as the entirety of a Source Event is not translatable into physical focus; but within translation, a close approximation would be your identification of feeling.
CAROL: Can we, though, intuit other people’s tones?
ELIAS: Within your translation within physical focus, yes; and you shall also at times be recognizing of this, and know. It is not impossible for you to identify a commonality in tone with another individual. Although you may not understand what you identify objectively, you shall be drawn to this within a recognition.
CAROL: So the outer manifestations could appear totally different in physical focus, but the tone could be similar, so there would be an attraction.
ELIAS: Absolutely. Yes; just as we have stated that you may hold the same name for essence within translation, and hold different tones. It may translate into the same word, but the tone is not the same.” [session 147, January 12, 1997]
DREW: “If physical focus is really just a specific awareness of essence, a particular part of essence ... You refer to the ‘you’ when you say, ‘you make the choices, your belief systems,’ and other times you refer to the ‘you.’ I’m wondering what the ‘you’ is, who the ‘I’ that makes these choices is. Is it just the bundle of thought processes that are associated with my focus? Or if there is no division, what is the me that’s making these decisions and having these needs and desires and experiences?
ELIAS: The ‘you’ is your individual personality tone within consciousness. It is not separate from all of consciousness, although it is unique and identifiable as you. Let me express to you in like manner, in what you may identify within truths. All of tone is contained within one. All of color is contained within one, although you may identify different vibrational qualities and isolate different identities. This does not change, that those qualities are still within one. In this same manner, you hold your own individuality within personality within your creation and you are directing of that creation, but you are simultaneously also not separate and within the whole of consciousness, and are the whole of consciousness.DREW: So primarily, it is this specific tone that is the me. (Elias nods) Okay.” [session 167, April 27, 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.” [session 177, May 30, 1997]
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: “Your name is a translation into language. It is the representation of a vibrational tone which is held within essence identity. Therefore, the essence name is the same for all of your focuses within all dimensions, for it is the designation of the tone; which this is the identification of you as essence. The physical naming within any physical focus is a chosen tone of identity of the individual focus of essence. Therefore, each focus of your essence holds a different name, knowing that each focus has the ability and potential to be fragmented into its own new essence. Therefore, each element, each aspect, each focus holds its own individuality, but also holds all of essence simultaneously.
Therefore, although you hold your own individual tone within the focus, I have expressed to other individuals previously, this would be likened to your musical notes; and you may play upon an instrument a chord which holds many, many, many tones, although it may hold only three physical notes. In this, each tone is individual but also contained, so to speak, within the chord, which would be the overall tone describing the essence; but each tone may also be singled out, in your terms, to be creating of its own new tones. Therefore, as you are connecting with your tone of essence, you also may, within conceptualization, connect with all of the aspects, all of the facets and focuses that are contained within the overall tone of the essence, allowing yourself the ability to be connecting with any chosen aspect of essence.
Many individuals focus quite objectively upon intersecting or connecting with other aspects of essence objectively. In this, I am meaning that they choose to be visualizing another focus, or they choose to be meditating and connecting with a visual of another focus within this dimension or another dimension or within non-physical focus. They choose to be engaging actions of hypnosis, that they may visualize another focus or another aspect of essence and reality. This is not always necessary. You may also accomplish the same by connecting with the tone, as you are expressing.
KIM: I want to connect to the tone. I desire to connect to it. I guess my question is, I know bits and pieces of it, but I want to connect to the whole of it. How do I go about doing that?
ELIAS: You shall be allowing yourself in increments to be accomplishing this, and I shall express to you that be recognizing that within this shift in consciousness, these things shall be accomplished. I am quite understanding that all of you hold a very common element within this present now of being very impatient (laughter) and being wishing to be moving into all of your areas of consciousness all within this present moment, and I also very lovingly express to you that you shall quite overwhelm yourself if you are moving all at once into the vastness of what you truly are!
Therefore, I suggest to you all quite sincerely that although you hold this impatience that you wish to be viewing all within this present moment, be acknowledging of yourselves and your movements in increments and be pleased with your movement, for you also afford yourself the ability to continue within your physical focus and not experiencing lunacy! Your essence, your self, is ultimately multidimensional. It is vaster than you may possibly imagine within this present now. Therefore, it is quite overwhelming to be viewing the whole.
I shall express to you that even within your shift and even within the accomplishment of your shift, certain aspects of essence shall not be revealed to you within physical focus; for just as Source Events may not be actualized into any physical focus entirely, you as essence may not be actualized into any one physical focus. The vastness of essence is all of consciousness, and may not be squeezed into this very small area of consciousness that you view to be your reality presently. Your universe, as I have stated previously, dwarfs in comparison to you.
Therefore, look to your physical elements, and within physically speaking, may you physically gather all of the elements of the entirety of your universe that you see physically and place them within your body? You may not! I wager that any one planet in your universe will not fit within your body! (Laughter) Therefore, it is the same idea. How may you fit the all of consciousness into one physical universe? (Pause) But you may view great amounts of your reality and of yourself and of your abilities within physical focus. As you choose to disengage from physical focus and move into non-physical areas of consciousness, then you shall grasp the whole of you.” [session 211, August 30, 1997]
ELIAS: “There are many interpretations of the meaning or significance of color vibration, and there are many belief systems circulating about color. But I shall express to you also that I have identified each essence family with a color vibration, for this overall vibration identifies most closely with the vibrational tone quality of the collective of that particular family. Therefore, there is an affectingness in the area of color and its vibrational tone quality. It is also affecting of you at different time periods for different reasons, in that your individual energy centers also hold color vibrational tones.” [session 220, September 20, 1997]
TOM: “Okay, a question with the essence name or tone. Can they change? I’ve had this impression that Malhai [Tom] is slightly different for me now, or is expanding, and I was wondering if this is a correct impression.
ELIAS: Let me express to you that initially, to the initial aspect of your question, yes, you may be altering of your tone, which shall translate into a different word within physical focus.
As to the second aspect of your question, with regard to yourself and your tone, I express to you that you are not altering of your tone and changing what you interpret as your essence name, but you are expanding your awareness to encompass more of your essence name.
I have expressed previously that these essence names are a partial expression of the entire tone. They are one element of the tone that translates into physical focus within your language into a word. This is not to say that you may not be translating more of your tone into physical sound, but these physical sounds may not in actuality be what you shall classify in your language as a word. They shall be assigned letters which align with your alphabet, for this is how you translate sound into words, but the other aspects of your essence tone do not translate into words as you know them.
In like manner, you may look to this individual that you have identified with within physical focus that has been in engagement of energy exchange with your other teacher of Seth. (1) This individual allowed herself within physical focus to be tapping into tones within consciousness connected with the family of Sumari, and also allowed herself the ability to be translating this into a type of language, although this particular language does not translate into any known language upon your planet. (2) Therefore, it is viewed as being a new language which has been developed by this individual. It is a translation of tones into the closest possible expression objectively within what you may term to be a ‘type of words’ within your physical dimension.
In like manner, you may access more of your tone of essence, which you classify as your essence name, and in this it shall not translate into a name or a word that you recognize within your languages, but you may assign your letters in identifying sounds to other aspects of your tone, which you may translate physically into your objective language type, creating your own language, so to speak, which shall be designating of the objective translation of your essence tone.” [session 297, July 14, 1998]
FEMALE: “I have a question, Elias, with regard to identity. Do we have as individuals a certain vibration, a certain tone that translates into a sound, like in the scale?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking, yes. You hold a tone of essence, which is the identification of the totality of personality energy of essence. This term of tone is not a sound. It is a vibrational quality, but it may be translated in part into physical focus within language or within what you term to be tone of sound. You may access this sound through the word, which is the translation within language of your tone; that which we designate as your essence name.
In this, as you allow yourself to be connecting with your individual essence name, you shall feel the tone resonate within you. You may move your physical voice through different sounds of your name, and you shall notice a certain vibrational tone that shall resonate within your physical form as you audibly speak this name; which you hold an awareness that if you are connecting with a tone parallel to another tone within physical sound, if you are accomplishing the same pitch, you shall feel an actual physical feeling within your physical body. You can feel within your chest and within your throat a resonating vibration as you connect with the same pitch of a tone as another tone, be it a creation of a musical instrument or another individual. As you connect with the same pitch, you shall feel a physical vibration. In like manner, as you connect with your essence tone through your essence name, you may feel an actual physical vibration resonating.” [session 328, October 03, 1998]
JOE: “Focuses. Just out of curiosity, ’cause I think this is great to be able to know this, how many focuses – and I know myself being one of them – but how many focuses in this dimension does my essence presently hold, and what focuses, as I strive for remembrance in that terminology, what focuses hold a similar tone to my own that would be easy for me to access?
ELIAS: Within this physical dimension, you hold seventy-one manifestations or focuses of essence. In this, you hold sixteen which shall be easily accessible to you, that hold similar tone and that you may be allowing yourself objective connection with and exploration of without difficulty.
JOE: Are they within this same time period that I hold, or are they kind of spread out throughout time?
ELIAS: Within this particular time framework now, you hold three other focuses of essence.
Now; those three other focuses of essence do not hold similar tone to you within this focus. This is generally the direction that essences are creating within. Within any given time framework in which an essence chooses to be manifesting focuses, it shall manifest several focuses, but they shall not hold physical proximity to each other ... generally speaking, be remembering, for occasionally an essence may move in the direction of manifesting two focuses of itself into a physical location in which they may objectively meet.
But generally speaking, this is not the situation that occurs in essence manifesting into physical focuses. Generally speaking, it shall create several focuses which shall occupy different physical locations throughout your globe and shall hold different tones, so to speak, therefore offering different types of experiences within one time framework.
In this, as you look to your explorations of other focuses, as I have stated previously with other individuals, you shall magnate to one particular focus within each given time framework, and if you are re-accessing a particular time framework, you shall most probably re-access that same focus, and not generally move in the direction of accessing the other focuses that occupy the same time framework, for they do not hold similar tone. This is all quite purposeful, for this offers essence great diversity and variety of experiences within physical dimensions. It also creates what you term to be a veil, but this veil is purposeful also, for this, in objective physical terms, insures the identity of each focus without introducing elements that may be confusing to the individual focuses.
This be the reason also that generally speaking, different focuses of an essence within the same time framework shall not objectively meet or interact with each other, and if they ARE meeting or holding limited interaction with each other in one time framework, they shall hold little draw to each other. They shall objectify this action and behavior by expressing to themselves that they hold little in common with this other individual or they hold no feeling towards this other individual. This also is a natural expression of essence in providing a type of veil between these focuses, that they shall not threaten each other’s individuality and identity in their interaction.” [session 437, August 03, 1999]
JO: “I just have one more question or set of questions. I’m getting a lot of imagery around the range of color between red and purple, and I’m wondering if my signature color is in there somewhere. My guess is that it’s crimson. It’s pretty persistent, and it serves me in one regard as metaphorical to me, as physical reality in relation to all that is. It’s an immersion into a very narrow band in the greater spectrum. But it also occurred to me that with regard to the energy centers, as far as I know, there’s no point in which there is a blending of red and purple, because red is at the bottom and purple and magenta are at the top, and I was wondering if this has to do with completing that color wheel, in a manner of speaking.
ELIAS: First of all, there is a relation between these expressions of colors of red and purple, for they are not what you would term to be opposite ends of the spectrum, so to speak, but are in actuality within a circular definition, so to speak.
In this, they are closely related in many expressions, although within your physical identification, you look to these particular colors and you disassociate them and do not afford them this compatibility, so to speak. Look to your game and the intertwining and interconnectedness between the red and the purple that appear within a linear color line spectrum to be at opposites to each other, but are intimately intertwined with each other in expression and manifestation.
In this, I shall express to you that you present yourself with the imagery of this type for your communication to self in more than one area. One is to be reinforcing to you that you are allowing yourself less limitation, and movement in conjunction with this shift in consciousness. One is the presentment to yourself in imagery in conjunction with the vibrational quality and movement of these colors in themselves.
For the presentment of the red is the vibrational quality which facilitates the slowing of energy, which allows in your objective terms for your examination in clarity, and in this slowness of energy, to be recognizing your movement and the choices that you are creating and how you are creating your reality in conjunction with your beliefs. Therefore, the red is instrumental in the facilitation of that movement, in its slowness of vibrational quality.
The purple, in its quickness in vibrational quality, facilitates a push, so to speak, in the swiftness of your movement in conjunction with this shift in consciousness, and is, in a manner of speaking, a representation of the swiftness of movement presently in this shift in consciousness and the action of redefinition within your reality, and how that movement is occurring quite swiftly presently.
As to your identification of signature color, so to speak, in vibrational quality, you are correct in your assessment that you have been offering yourself information in conjunction with this subject matter also, for the signature color that you hold and identify with may be recognized as scarlet, which is closely expressed to that of crimson.
JO: That was my second guess! (Jo and Elias both laugh) Thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.” [session 530, December 29, 1999]
ELIAS: “You may express also to Michael [Mary] and Lawrence [Vicki] that their essence tones alter at times also. Generally speaking, they are resuming the tone which has been offered in the translation of those particular essence names, but within particular time frameworks or moments, those translations are in actuality different also.
TOM: Okay. I will pass that along.
ELIAS: Therefore, be remembering: Although a new essence name may be offered, such as that which I have offered to you this day of Malhaine [Tom], the expression of the focus of attention chooses to allow that incorporation of alteration within the focus, and may choose that to be a temporary alteration.
This is not an action which merely occurs to you, in a manner of speaking. Subjectively, you hold full awareness of this action and choose to be incorporating of this alteration. You also choose whether you shall continue in that alteration or you shall not continue in that alteration.
TOM: Or you may continue altering constantly, so to speak?
ELIAS: Yes, you may, and this is not necessarily an action of fragmentation.
TOM: It’s an action of energy.
ELIAS: It is an incorporation of energy, which may be expressed in tonal quality, incorporating the recognition of mergences of essences, which may be affecting of the particular focus of attention within certain moments.
There are other actions which occur also within essence, of which we have spoken little previously. At times, more than one essence may be choosing to be focusing one attention within a particular manifestation.
TOM: This is why sometimes the tonal quality will change, and people will comment that you’re a different person?
ELIAS: At times. Or, an individual may be within a particular time framework inquiring as to essence families, and within the moment, I may express the response that the individual holds more than two essence families within that focus.
TOM: Okay, that’s interesting. There’s a lot more to this than we are objectively aware of.
ELIAS: You are correct. It is, as I have stated, dependent upon the expression of the attention of the focus within a particular time framework. It is not entirely what you presently identify as the attention of essence all together, in a manner of speaking.
Let me express briefly a comparison in simplicity.
You may present yourself with an object, and through your perception, which creates your reality, you may view that particular object within one moment to be blue. You may alter your perception. You may view the very same object, and within the subsequent moment, you may express that you view that object to be violet.
You are viewing the same object. You are creating that object through your perception in the same form. Your attention is focused in the same direction, but you have altered your perception in that attention slightly. Therefore, what you create within one moment is blue, and what you create within another moment is violet. In this, you remain the same. The object remains the same, other than its color. Your attention remains the same, in a manner of speaking.
In like manner, within different moments, dependent upon the movement of the focus and the attention of the focus – as it is affecting of essence, just as your perception, which creates your reality, is affecting of you, but they may not be separated – as the attention of the focus is affecting of essence, the tonal quality within that moment may be altered, or the alignment of family may be altered.
Or, dependent upon the expression of the focus and the manifestation of the focus, the family which the focus is belonging to may be affected, for the attention may be directed to the expression of one essence within one moment and to another essence within another moment, and if the focus is a projection, a manifestation of combined essences, it may be turning its attention within different moments and it may be expressing different essence families.
We shall be incorporating more information concerning this subject matter futurely.
But briefly, I offer this to you, that you may hold an understanding that you have merely incorporated the initial identifications of these concepts of essence names, essence tones, essence families, essence colors, focus colors, other focuses of essences, chapter focuses of essence, or essence as consciousness.
You have incorporated the beginnings of your objective understanding, which presents you with the viewing of the flatness, so to speak, in like manner to the picture which is painted as the representation of reality, that which you define as two-dimensional, in your very physical terminology.
The painting incorporates the flatness, for it is merely the initial representation. The creation of your actual reality is what you term to be three- or four-dimensional, which incorporates more depth, and as you have moved into this millennium, now you incorporate more of the depth in objective reality, not merely subjective reality. Are you understanding?
TOM: I think I am. We’re just touching, in an analogy, the tip of the iceberg with our concepts presently, and now we’re moving the iceberg above the water? (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
TOM: Slowly! (Elias chuckles) I can see the vastness of even my perception, and how we place even essence as an outside god.
ELIAS: Quite, and I shall express to you, you are moving much more rapidly than you allow yourself the realization of in actuality, and in this, you are quite right in your identification, that you view yourselves as essence to be merely another form of a god to the focus.
But I express to you that you are also, within this now, redefining your terms, as I have stated previously, and therefore, you are also redefining your reality, and in this, you are allowing yourselves to be inserting this shift in consciousness into your objective reality. All that you have viewed previously as imagination is becoming not so very imaginary! (Chuckling)
TOM: We’re releasing the limitations.
ELIAS: Quite.” [session 571, February 25, 2000]
ALYA: “I’ll ask a different question. Why do you like the color blue so much?
ELIAS: This translation of vibrational quality of energy identifies in your reality as the expression or color of blue. This particular vibrational quality, which is a truth within consciousness, is a quality that I, this essence, resonate with, and I hold a preference to this particular vibrational tone, which manifests within your identification as blue.
ELAINA-JOY: And a sound.
ELIAS: Yes. It also may be translated within a tone of sound.
ALYA: How would someone find out what color they resonate with?
ELIAS: Ah! Many individuals allow themselves to be exploring and identifying what we may term to be their signature color, which is the color that they identify with in their energy as a vibrational tone, and which is the base or underlying color of their individual energy field. Other colors are superimposed upon that base color as projected by your eight energy centers, but the base color is what you may term to be your signature color.
Now; you may be allowing yourself to acquire this information through viewing your own energy field. You may extend your hand and view your energy field surrounding your hand, not paying attention, so to speak, to the colors that are projected by your energy centers within your body, but looking through those colors to the underlying color.
You shall also recognize, for you also shall resonate with one particular tone of color, which shall be quite pleasing to you, shall be very comforting to you in your emotional expressions, and that you shall continuously draw yourself to.
ELAINA-JOY: Elias, I never see color. I always see shades of black and white, shades of gray; I always see energy in density, thickness, and in brightness to darkness. I never see color. I never ever have seen color, although I see plenty of the other. How do you switch to seeing color? I never see color!
ELIAS: (Grinning) And interestingly enough, this also moves quite in conjunction with all of our discussion this day, for as you allow yourself to be not occupying your attention so very much outside of self, and you turn your attention to self and afford yourself more trust of your ability in your expressions, and you allow yourself to relax – this is key! Relax, relax, relax! (Laughter)
ALYA: She needs to be told that more often, WAY more often!
ELIAS: And in this relaxation, you may allow yourself to view.
You express a quickness in your movement, an anticipation, a lack of relaxation, which in your terms may be translated into an impatience. In actuality, it IS an expression of impatience, for patience is not the action of waiting, but the action of allowance.
In this, all individuals initially view the light and dark within the viewing of an energy field.
Many individuals view the initial expression of an energy field visually as white with shadows, but as you allow yourself to relax, you may adjust your visual and incorporate the allowance – in the expression of patience (grinning) – and you shall view the colors. This white is the base color. In actuality, it is not white.
ELAINA-JOY: It’s all colors.
ELIAS: It is your signature color that is the base color underneath all of the other colors, and in allowing yourself to view physically, visually, the emergence of that white into a color, it shall manifest in your signature color.
ALYA: Why, before, did you call my mom Soskia?
ELIAS: This is the expression of tone which is the designation of what we term to be her essence name, just as I have expressed to you, the 821 focuses of attention of you are the entirety of your lifetime.
The entirety of ALL of your focuses of attention in ALL dimensions is the expression of your essence, and that essence holds what you may simply term as a signature tone also, and that tone translates into your language in this physical dimension as a word, and that is what we identify as an essence name.
The tone of this essence is translated into your language as Soskia. The tone of your essence, translated into your words, is Odette.
(To Deborah) The tone of your essence, within the translation of physical words, is Udaakyam. (yoo-dok’-ee-um) I shall spell for clarification: U-D-A-A-K-Y-A-M.” [session 591, April 02 2000, ]
LYNDA: “May I give you a couple more impressions?
ELIAS: You may.
LYNDA: Well, we talked about the Sumafi family (3) and you gave me a description, and I would like to give you my impressions of what I think the color of the Sumalfi family is, because my impression is that it’s different than the Sumafi family. Can I give you my choice that I’m resonating with? I’ll just tell you what my little logical progression was, and then I’ll tell you what I’m resonating with.
In thinking about the Sumalfi color, I thought, well, the Sumafi color is black, so maybe my love for cobalt blue ... it’s kind of blue-black, so it could be cobalt. And then I thought, maybe it’s gray, but I don’t really like gray, and I don’t wear gray – this is my brain working here. And then I thought periwinkle blue – I love periwinkle blue! So I think it’s periwinkle blue, and that’s what resonated to me. So, if Sumalfi has a color, my impression that I resonate with is periwinkle blue, which is sort of a warm blue. So, will you tell me what is up with that?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! I may express to you that you are resonating with this particular color of periwinkle blue within your essence, and this is an identification of a tone or a vibrational quality which resonates quite strongly with your essence. I am aware of your other blue as your individual signature color. Recognize that this is your identification of you, but that your essence also resonates with other vibrational qualities, and therefore you hold what you may term to be affections or affinities for certain other colors in addition, in a manner of speaking, to your individual signature color.
LYNDA: Are you speaking about the aqua color we talked about before?
LYNDA: Okay, so the aqua color is my individual signature.
LYNDA: And the periwinkle is all of....
LYNDA: I don’t think “all” – it’s too small of a word, isn’t it?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
LYNDA: I think “all” is not a big enough word for the colors of my essence! (They both laugh) Okay, go on.
ELIAS: I shall express to you that within essence, you do not in actuality hold one individual signature color resonation. You do hold several vibrational qualities that you resonate with in essence, and this expresses itself, in your translation outwardly in your physical manifestation, as a type of affinity for certain color expressions. Are you understanding?
LYNDA: Yes, I am.
ELIAS: One individual may hold a signature color in a particular focus, and also be extremely drawn to a very different color, that which they may identify as their favorite color, and one expression may be that their essence resonates with that particular vibrational quality, and this is translated into an individual focus, and that focus may draw itself continuously to that particular vibrational expression of that particular color.
As to the color identification of this subdivision of family, in actuality, the color identified with that family would be recognized in your translation as charcoal.
LYNDA: Oh, that was my very first impression, that it was a mutation of the black. Charcoal – that makes sense.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha!
LYNDA: Whatever sense is! Charcoal – oh, okay. Charcoal – not quite black.
ELIAS: Not quite.
LYNDA: Not quite. There’s a difference, a significant difference! (They both laugh) Okay, that’s interesting. The shades of blue that I resonate with are what I call warm blue, not purple blues. They’re more warm blues, so the aqua and periwinkle would make sense to me ‘cause they have a similar warm tone, is the only way I can describe it. Do you know what I mean?
LYNDA: Okay, that’s very good. I appreciate that.” [session 597, April 07, 2000]
DALE: “What is my color? (Laughing) Or, is my color blue?
ELIAS: (Grinning) Express to me more specific identification.
DALE: Well, I think sometimes it’s kind of a cobalt blue, but with light shining through it, it gets kind of periwinkley. The color of a blue in a rainbow blue, that kind of blue.
ELIAS: I shall express to you that your identification of cobalt is close, and I shall express the clarification of marine.
DALE: Oh, okay. Well, you’re the artist that knows all the names! (They both laugh) Well, what does that color mean?
ELIAS: This is a vibrational quality which translates into your physical dimension in the configuration of a physical color.
In this, this particular focus that you are manifesting resonates with that particular vibrational quality, and in that resonance, you create what you identify as a signature color. This is the vibrational quality of energy that you create and surround yourself physically with in the base quality or expression of your energy field.
As I have stated previously, in allowing yourself to view your individual energy field, if you are allowing yourself to be looking through the colors of the energy field, which are the projections of your energy centers, which you may identify as the surface layer of your identifiable energy field, you may also allow yourself to view the underlying color physically, which shall be exhibited in that particular color hue.
DALE: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.” [session 601, April 11, 2000]
HOWARD: “I never did get around to finding out what colors I had. Let me just offer this: I don’t think I have one color; I believe I’m a tri-color guy. I get three colors all the time.
ELIAS: And I may offer you an explanation, and you may allow yourself to investigate further. You offer yourself three colors, for you offer yourself one which may be identified as the signature color, you offer yourself another which may be identified as the primary color of this particular focus of attention, and you offer yourself the third as the fluctuating color, which is incorporated in association with your primary color of this particular focus each time you are, in your terms, connecting with any other focus of essence.
ELIAS: They are each expressions of energy.
HOWARD: Yes. What a concept; what a thought! What an image!
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Therefore, you may continue your investigation, and perhaps offer yourself the identification of which color is the expression of which. (Chuckles)
HOWARD: Okay, I’ll work on that.
ELIAS: Very well, my friend.” [session 823, April 15, 2001]
KC: “I’m so interested in one little question, my color tone. I understand that there’s a color tone associated with my essence tone, Nanaiis. I have two impressions, and they must be guesses because they’re nothing alike. My first impression is that it’s a terra cotta color, and my second impression is that it’s a turquoise color.
ELIAS: Your initial impression associated with the earth tone color is correct in association with your signature color. Your second impression may be associated with this individual focus.
KC: Oh! I was so happy when I read in the transcripts that color is a truth, Elias. It’s my favorite truth!” (Laughs, and Elias laughs) [session 871, July 26, 2001]
MARY JO: “I would like to ask you one more thing; my time’s going to be up. When I’m seeing my energy field and it’s blue, is that right? Is that what I’m seeing?
MARY JO: Oh, and there’s yellow coming out like from underneath it?
MARY JO: So are my colors yellow and blue, or is that just my energy field?
ELIAS: This is a viewing of your energy field which is being projected by your energy centers which creates the radiation, so to speak, of your energy field.
Now; as you view your energy field and you allow yourself to relax as you are viewing this energy field, you may allow yourself to view beyond, so to speak, the expression of your energy centers which are generating color effects, so to speak, in relation to your energy fields and allow yourself to view a consistent expression of a particular color which may be identified as the signature color of your focus. As you allow yourself to view that, you may view beyond that color the underlying color which is expressed more faintly in your terms, but that you may identify as the signature color vibration of your essence.
MARY JO: Okay, I’ll look for it. I will look. I think our time is up, Elias.
ELIAS: Very well. I shall offer you a clue that your focus signature color is a hue of blue and this influences what you are viewing in your energy field, and this is the reason that you view blue often as you view your energy field.
MARY JO: Okay, because that’s mainly what I see. The last time I kind of thought maybe I was seeing some other colors, kind of around my feet I guess. But I will, I will do it and I’ll look.
ELIAS: Very well!” [session 883, August 16, 2000]
PAT: “First I’d like just some more superficial [questions], just for my curiosity. People are talking about signature colors, so I’m kind of curious what mine would be and what that is in comparison to a focus color. Is that separate, and what would that color be?
ELIAS: Your signature color is actually a translation of a vibrational quality which is exhibited by the essence, which translates within your physical dimension as a color which represents the vibrational quality of that particular essence.
The focus color is the color that you generate in this focus that signifies your energy, its general expression of energy. You project different vibrational qualities which translate into different colors through your different energy centers and these project energy outwardly to your energy field.
Now; your color expression, which is generated by your energy centers, is superposed upon the color expression which is generated by you within your energy field, as the expression of you within your totality, so to speak, of this focus. It is a vibrational quality. Each individual expresses a particular vibrational quality which translates into a color.
Now; what is your impression concerning each of these?
PAT: Well, one of my favorite colors is kind of a rose-fuchsia color, so if it was what I like that could be it, and then some shades of green I’m very drawn to. I don’t like orange at all, I know that! (Laughs) All I know is what I like.
ELIAS: Now; what you are objectively drawn to in preference is not necessarily an indication of what your expression in vibrational quality is. Many times individuals misinterpret and automatically assume that a particular color that they prefer objectively is the color that may be associated with their signature color or their focus color, and this is not necessarily correct.
You may resonate with a particular color objectively for you may generate certain associations with that preference. It may generate an association of calm or excitement or solemnness or happiness, and in that association you may draw yourself to a particular color as you resonate with that color; but this is not necessarily the expression of the color that you generate.
PAT: So fuchsia’s not it.
PAT: (Laughs) Can you share with me what mine is? (Pause)
ELIAS: Signature color may be translated in your terms as goldenrod; focus color translates to periwinkle.
PAT: Oh! Well, I always liked that color too, so that works for me.” [session 994, January 22, 2002]
INGRID: “Can you please tell me my color?
ELIAS: And your impression?
INGRID: In the last ten years or so I was completely into yellow. But now, since maybe one or two years, I stay a little bit out of it and the tendency is more into green. But I really don’t know. It’s just a guessing.
ELIAS: Let me express to you first of all that a preference in relation to color is not necessarily an indication that this particular color is associated with a focus color or a signature color. Generally speaking, individuals are drawn to particular colors in preference in relation to the vibrational quality of those colors and how those particular vibrational qualities resonate with expressions of the individual in relation to their energy centers and a particular expression of energy that the individual may gravitate to.
In relation to your preference for an extended time framework concerning this color of yellow, this is not associated with a focus color or a signature color, but rather an association that you generate in relation to the vibrational quality of that particular color and its association with emotional communications. As to the association with the green, you generate this expression in relation to moving your attention more into a direction of self and in relation to the green energy center and the qualities that are expressed through this energy center, in relation also to healing in an inner manner, so to speak.
INGRID: Healing myself?
ELIAS: Yes. As to the expressions of color in association with essence, the quality of vibrational tone that is generated by your essence is a silver translation.
INGRID: Like mother of pearl, something like that?
ELIAS: Yes, but incorporating more of what you may term to be a metallic quality of color.
INGRID: What does this mean? Does it have a special quality, this silver? Is it in relation to a special quality, because sometimes I did hear you say in a session there are certain qualities associated. Is this a special quality expressing, or just in general?
ELIAS: Each color generates a specific vibrational quality which may resonate with the tone quality of the essence. Therefore, in a manner of speaking, it is a general expression.” [session 1004, February 10, 2002]
JIM: “I have a question about essence tones. I’ve seen a lot of information about families and alignment and all that, but I haven’t really seen anything about essence tones. I’d like to know what mine is. I kind of feel like C below middle C, or something like that.
ELIAS: Your impression is correct, B.
JIM: Could you just explain a little bit the significance of an essence tone? Is it good to hum that tone, expose yourself to that tone? Does it kind of help align things?
ELIAS: It may. It is dependent upon how you are directing your energy.
Individuals at times are inquiring of a tone to allow themselves an avenue of focusing their attention upon a focal point. Many times individuals allow themselves more of a clarity in their expressions and their assimilation of information if they are providing themselves with a focal point. It is not necessary, but many individuals experience an ease in allowing themselves to direct their energy if they are incorporating a focal point.
JIM: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.” [session 1116, June 16, 2002]
(1) Paul’s note: Jane Roberts engaged an energy exchange with an “energy personality essence” named Seth from December 1963 until her passing in September 1984. Seth/Jane produced over 40 books of material during that time that now forms a body of the perennial philosophy called the Seth Material. (The Early Sessions, Books 1-9 are now available, [sessions 1-510].)
