ELIAS: “Just as within certain actions you create focal points to allow yourselves more of an opening to self and to your own awarenesses and to energies, within your objective expressions such as your cards, your crystals, your astrology, your numerology, your rituals, you use these as focal points, as actions that you allow through your belief systems an opening to consciousness and to energy.” [session 308, August 21, 1998]
VIVIEN: “Okay. Thank you. The pendulum – I’ve been using the pendulum for quite some time, and I feel that I’m getting very valid results from it, and my feeling is that the answers that I get are quite pertinent and quite correct within my questioning. And what I would like to ask you is, how reliable is it for me?
ELIAS: It is a tool, and as a focal point you may be accepting of this, in that you shall be offering yourself acknowledgment and answers to your questions within the framework of using this tool.” [session 225, October 04, 1997]
ELIAS: “This be also why I stress this wave of acceptance, for as you are not accepting, you are also not moving. I have expressed to you from the onset of these sessions, this be the reason that you have asked. You have asked for helpfulness. You receive this helpfulness presently, and the action of the shift is the focal point of these discussions. It is what you have chosen as your direction for your attention and your movement. Therefore, it is important; but you prevent your own movement within this shift by limiting your own abilities and creativity, and not trusting of yourselves.” [session 203, August 03, 1997]
PAUL: “I have some questions about dreams, dream experiences. In one of the sessions I’ve read, the issue of ‘a true dream from the gates of horn’ and its Egyptian connections in our past was mentioned, and you mentioned that Michael [Mary] had connected or accessed this region twice. I’m wondering if you would just elaborate a little bit further if you can about this type of action, of us tapping into a region that we call the Gates of Horn and what type of information is available there as opposed to other areas of our dreams. What’s special ... that’s not the right word. What’s unique? What’s the unique thing in that area?
ELIAS: When you are accessing that area of consciousness, when you are asking for information within that area of consciousness, you are asking essentially to be offering yourself a truthful dream imagery regardless of the information. When you are in the position of asking this type of question to be accessed within your dream state, you are also dealing with belief systems that you are wishing to be offering yourself information to be helpful to you, and risking your own non-acceptance of the answer that may be offered; this being why it has been termed the ‘true dream’ from this area, for it shall provide you imagery and action within Regional Area 2 that is truthful to you beyond your belief systems.
PAUL: So I’d like to ask you a question now about an experience I had, as I requested this and had a very powerful dream. To describe it briefly, I was in a room with others whom I objectively didn’t recognize but felt very close to, and made a connection with four or five invisible aspects of myself. The visual imagery of it being invisible is obvious to me of not fully understanding what they were, but they were me ...
PAUL: ... and very close to me and dear to me, and part of that is understanding that. Also in this experience, which was very beautiful for me, the image of a red ball – I’ll just grab this because it’s here with me now for some reason (Paul picks up a red glass ball that’s always on the coffee table) – appeared to me and was offered as a symbol, in image, of challenges. Building off of what you said about accessing beliefs and non-acceptance, I realize that that’s what that’s dealing with, in dealing with that here with our friends and in other areas.
My question is about the nature of a series of dreams now that seems to be connected from that point. This image of the red ball has occurred a second time recently. Physically, it was smaller and the topic was not necessarily cosmic or profound, but it was important and it dealt with dream matter and physical matter, which seems to be an interest of mine. I’m wondering if you would just comment a little bit about this new stage of dreaming that I’m entering into and this type of imagery. This is the first time for me that there is a replication, not of environment, not of feeling-tone, but of imagery that seems to have a parallel nature, perhaps connecting with other parts of myself, if you would comment on that.
ELIAS: Correct. You are moving into a direction of focusing upon dream imagery as you move into the area of connecting yourself also with this dream mission presently. In this, you are focusing more carefully upon the imagery of your dream state. The ball originally presented to you, being the color of red, signifying to yourself the aspect of spirituality within the addressing of the contained belief systems. In this, you offer yourself another dream imagery, that the ball appears once again, but smaller. In this symbolism, you are identifying to yourself that the belief systems are being addressed and therefore are being moved through. In this, you image the ball as smaller; depleting. You also image this ball continued to be red, for you also move into the area of redefining spirituality to yourself.
PAUL: A question about the relationship of size. You mentioned, in the smaller aspect, moving through. (Uncertainly) That’s a good thing? (Laughter)
ELIAS: Correct ... in your perception! (Grinning)
PAUL: Of course. Thank you. (Elias chuckles) I was talking to Michael [Mary], before our session and yesterday, about another concept in this dream mission area perhaps, about a man named Robert Monroe and this concept that he offers of a ‘rote.’ R-O-T-E. Michael [Mary] was talking about this ball of energy as being offered, and being able to get a thought ball of ideas that you could acquire in the dream state or altered state, take it with you back to full objective awareness, run it like a video tape or open it like a computer file at your leisure, and in a controlled fashion have that information available. Would you comment on that type of idea? It’s rather new to me!
ELIAS: The word is one individual’s interpretation and word for this action. In actuality, you may choose any word for identification, but the action is correct. It is a reality, and it shall benefit you each nicely within your offering of clues to yourselves in the context of your dream mission. You are beginning to move more quickly presently, once again. There has been movement continuously, but at certain time periods you accelerate your movement, and then you offer yourselves your respite temporarily; this being another accelerated time framework. Therefore, you shall be accessing more information presently and moving more swiftly within the addressing of belief systems and actions, and also within the connection of objective and subjective consciousness and reality and the lack of separation within them.
You may be continuing in this direction of accessing this information from other areas of consciousness and allowing yourself an identification that other essences and information are not so far removed from you as you believe them to be, and you do hold the ability to be connecting and in contact objectively with other essences and be exchanging with other essences. You hold belief systems that you have held for much of your time framework that these actions are not possible.
You may go to a seance and you may speak with your deceased grandparent through the facilitation of a medium, but you do not believe that you may step sideways and access another essence within another area of consciousness without creating an energy exchange and be accessing information in the same manner that you access information from each other within physical focus. Therefore, you create ‘methods,’ but these methods draw you closer into a realization that you do hold the ability to access other areas of consciousness and other essences at will. This action is another element of reality, another availability of accessing through consciousness energy and information and essence, not necessarily your own essence.” [session 224, October 01, 1997]
JIM: “Alright. (Pause) I’ve continued my episodes of meditation and visualization. I’ve had two episodes that have been very powerful. One was maybe six months ago, and one was maybe one month ago. The first one was so powerful that I was in a meditative state for maybe a half hour or forty-five minutes, maybe longer, I don’t know, and it was obviously focused on the organ which I had the cancer in, and when I finished the meditation it was almost as if it was on fire, and I had ... if the organ had been bigger, I would have been vomiting or something. It was hugely, physically affective of me. I’ve had a second one like that just a month ago, not quite as powerful as that first one, and I’m wondering what was happening there. What was going on?
ELIAS: You are concentrating your energy within a physical location of your body, allowing yourself to use this area as a focal point. Many individuals choose focal points to focus their attention and energy and allow an opening of their intuitive senses, their inner senses. Some individuals use outside elements such as props, as with crystals or boards or cards or many other different elements. Some individuals use a focal point within a physical area of what they term to be a third eye. Some visualize at the top of their heads. Others create a focal point within their hands. It matters not. It is a ‘method.’ It is an element that you create to focus your attention upon your abilities inside, your inner senses, and that you may trust that you may project energy to a certain area and it shall bear you out truthfully. You are developing this relationship in energy with this area of physical form.
JIM: And in developing this ...
ELIAS: You have become friends! (Jim laughs) And you have begun a trust in this particular area of your physical form. Therefore, you also transform this now into a focal point to be helpful to yourself.” [session 254, January 02, 1998]
ELIAS: “You each allow yourselves to creatively invent, so to speak, in your language of the Gramada, your own individual focal point. This is unique and individualized to yourself. This allows you the trust to enter into areas that your attention would otherwise not incline itself to allow. Therefore, as you have created this officially accepted reality, you also allow yourselves windows; your personal escape routes!
You also allow yourself mass escape routes. You have created your Bermuda Triangle, which is quite in working order for your purposes and may be accessed to be exiting one dimension and entering another dimension, if you are so choosing. This be your physical window that you have placed here upon location of your planet, but individually you offer yourselves your own focal point, that symbol to yourself which is your personalized ‘button’ that you may push at will and allow yourself the freedom of movement within consciousness. This is quite similar to your dream triggers, although objectively you have allowed yourself the creation of this focal point. Therefore, you need not search for it as you need be searching within dream imagery to be finding your dream trigger.
Not all individuals allow themselves a focal point. All individuals hold the ability to be creating of a focal point and to be using and manipulating through consciousness with this focal point, but not all individuals have moved into an area of trust and acceptance within self to allow themselves a focal point. As you move more into your own trust and acceptance of self, you shall find it is unnecessary for your focal point. You may allow this to fly away also, and you may move within consciousness at will without your prop!” [session 275, April 23, 1998]
JIM: “The feeling that I feel in the palms of my hands when focusing or offering energy, is that energy movement in transmission, so to speak, and the sensation is created by myself for my own recognition?
ELIAS: The sensation is created by yourself. This would be a manipulation of energy that you direct into your physical hands, for this allows you an actual objective physical recognition of energy manipulation placed within a specific location of your physical form that you recognize as an area that you may physically be manipulating efficiently in connection with other individuals or creatures.
If you are projecting your own energy to your solar plexus, you may find difficulty in connecting physically, objectively, with another individual or creature, for within your belief systems you view that you may be physically connecting or manipulating your body parts, so to speak, in connection with these other individuals. You may experience difficulty in certain areas of your body in moving them in conjunction with another individual, may you not? (Chuckling)
ELIAS: Therefore, you choose to be manipulating the energy into the area of your hands, for these are the instruments of your physical body that you manipulate physical objects with, and therefore this creates more of an efficiency for you.
JIM: So within that sensation, energy actually is being projected and moved?
JIM: But it’s not necessarily just isolated in my hands, I guess, at that point either, is it?
ELIAS: No, but this would be your focal point and your directed area that you direct the energy through to be manipulating it efficiently in conjunction with other individuals or creatures.
JIM: Okay. Does one need to go into the cell or the energy center to give information about issues of creating the disease, or helping a person or even my own self in identifying the issues, identifying the shrines and the belief systems that are causing the discomfort? Do we actually have to go into the cellular structure, or just the energy center?
ELIAS: It is dependent upon the intent and also the directedness of the individual or creature being affected and their agreement or desire for helpfulness, and also it is dependent upon the severity of the affectingness and the efficiency of your interaction with the individual or the creature in manipulating energy. As you become more accomplished in manipulating energy, you also move into the direction of becoming more precise in your identification of the affected areas and the issues which surround these areas; the energy which is held and is creating of the affectingness. Therefore, you may be effectively manipulating energy and allowing the other individual to be receiving this energy and applying the energy to their own affected areas, but many times with individuals, they hold belief systems which are very affecting. In this manner, they hold an expectation in conjunction with their belief systems that suggests to them that YOU shall be directing of energy and YOU shall be controlling the movement of the energy. Therefore, they also hold an expectation of your preciseness in directing the energy to specific areas and allowing instructions in precise directions to be affecting of the energy which is held and is creating of the dis-ease.
Now; let me express to you that this is less of a situation with your creatures, for they do not hold the belief systems and the expectation which is created by the belief systems, although at times it may be efficient and beneficial to be identifying specific areas precisely to be directing energy more efficiently.
Just as within the beginnings of our engagements of sessions, the energy was more scattered and not quite so directed, and in this action it was affecting of individuals in confusing manners, and as it became more directed and precise, it also is creating of a more direct individual interactiveness subjectively, which allows for more efficiency in the exchange. (1)
JIM: ... The mantra that I received many years ago from Sri Swami Satchidananda, that’s a communication within consciousness? They’re just words within our language, I understand, but the intent of those is our communication within consciousness? In helping myself to focus, in focusing on those words, is that helpful in bridging consciousness and allowing myself empathically to merge with a creature or human, if allowed?
ELIAS: This would be your choice for a tool that you may be using for a focal point, which is entirely acceptable within physical focus, for many times you may be allowing yourself to focus your energy more directly and efficiently if you are offering yourselves a focal point. This may be a mantra or it may be a mandala or it may be any number of different creations that you may use to facilitate your own actions and your own manipulation of energy, in allowing yourself to be more directly focused with that particular energy.
JIM: Okay. Even focusing on Yarr [Jim] (2) is the same action?
ELIAS: Absolutely.” [session 292, June 30, 1998]
NANCY: “I experience these windows, what I call windows of reality. It usually happens before I go to sleep at night, when I’m in that crossover state. I’m well aware that I’m not asleep, and yet my eyes will be closing, and these like holes – so I call them windows – appear out of my field of vision, and I’ve been shown a reality that feels more real than this, even though it’s very brief. I just wonder what I can do to help sustain them ... or I don’t want them enough, so they don’t come to me? I guess I’d like to know what it is I could do, to maybe obviously gravitate in that direction?
ELIAS: Continue practicing with these windows of yours. These are focal points that you have allowed yourself in your own widening of awareness. But just as we have spoken at our last meeting of how individuals restrain themselves in the unfamiliar and in the area of their own fearfulness of the unfamiliar, let me express that although at times individuals such as yourself in this situation within physical focus may become excited in their discovery of new elements of their reality, you also hold to the familiarity of this particular focus.
Now; in this situation with yourself and your particular windows – your focal point – these are access points. Windows are a very good tone for these portals, for they do allow you access into the reality of other realities.
Mind you understand your own terms in your own expression: ‘I view these realities to be more real than this reality.’ Here is your key as to your creation and why you limit your creation, for these are DIFFERENT realities, but they are NO MORE REAL than this reality. You have allowed yourself the opportunity to view within yourself a belief system which has been perpetuated through your society, that THIS reality is ‘less than,’ that you are ‘working through the working plane.’ This also is reinforced by your belief systems in reincarnation, which are belief systems.
In this, as you discount this particular reality and do not allow yourself the appreciation of the magnificence of this particular reality and acknowledge your exploration of it ... for it SEEMS mundane and it SEEMS that you are entirely familiar with this particular reality. Therefore, what be there to discover and what be there to explore, as you have already explored all the aspects of this particular dimension and reality? Therefore, other realities appear to be more interesting and more real.
In this, you set up a barrier for yourself, for you are discounting of one reality, and in this action of discounting the one reality, within essence you automatically block yourself from entering into other realities too fully, for that shall be reinforcing of your belief system within this reality to be discounting of this reality. Therefore, in this situation I express to you the suggestion that you recognize the wondrousness of this reality, and that shall helpful to you in allowing you more access to other realities.
Be remembering, you are not upon a ‘learning plane.’ There are no planes. There are no levels. Therefore, you are merely experiencing your attention within one particular focus of one dimension, and you now are allowing yourself the opportunity within a widening of awareness to be viewing the other realities that you also occupy simultaneously. This may also allow you the opportunity to acknowledge yourself in feelings that you hold, that you experience in feeling not quite entirely ‘rightly placed’ within this particular dimension, and that perhaps there exists another dimension that you may fit more comfortably within.
The reason that you hold these feelings is that you allow yourself a closeness to other focuses that you hold within other dimensions. They have not entirely been allowed to bleed through objectively into this focus yet, although within the probabilities that you are creating, it is most probable that you shall allow this action. But presently, you merely allow yourself to move close to these other focuses that you hold within other dimensions, and what IS bleeding through is the FEELING of these other focuses in their familiarity, the knowing that you ARE participating presently, simultaneously, in other focuses within other dimensions.
Therefore, you hold a knowing of this, and you have thinned the veils between these dimensions. You have not eliminated them, but you have created a thinning of them to allow yourself to move more closely and be connecting with these other focuses. Before you may allow yourself to move into the direction of much interaction with these other focuses, you are allowing yourself to become comfortable with them, and comfortable with the knowing that they are also you. Therefore, you need not be fearful of them.
For in the actual encounter of other focuses outside of this particular dimension, the forms ARE unfamiliar. The creation of their reality is unfamiliar to you within this focus. Therefore, initially they may prove to be slightly frightening, for they ARE unfamiliar, and you may move yourself into the direction of expressing to yourself, ‘These are not myself, these are outside of myself, for this may not be me.’ But it is! It is another aspect of yourself, and you are now presently allowing yourself the wondrousness of exploration within physical focus of connecting to other aspects of you which do not occupy this particular dimension, but are within focus simultaneous to you within this focus.
I am acknowledging of your movement in this area. Merely be remembering that in your excitement in your connecting with these focuses, they are all you, and therefore you may move at your own pace in avoiding fearfulness in this area and also not reinforcing belief systems held within this particular focus and this dimension.
For as I have spoken previously of this shift in consciousness: simultaneous to the opening to consciousness and the opening of your awareness in conjunction with the action of this shift, you also pull to yourself the awareness of the reinforcement of more and more belief systems, for one of the base line actions of this shift in consciousness is to be accepting of the belief systems which are held individually and en masse. Therefore, you shall be continuously and increasingly addressing to and noticing all of the aspects of belief systems that you hold, and in this recognition you shall automatically move in certain directions of not intentionally reinforcing these belief systems. You shall automatically ‘step in front of yourself’ to be addressing to each belief system that may be blocking of your movement forward, so to speak.
This be the reason that you do not allow yourself, as I have stated, to move fully into the exploration of these other dimensional focuses, for you wish also not to be reinforcing the belief system of discounting THIS focus and THIS dimension. Be remembering that although they may seem alien to you, you may seem alien to them! And you are all the same, for you are all you!” [session 293, July 01, 1998]
GAIL: “I have one more question. Tom and I would meditate together, and he set up a situation where I would view a cube, and he asked me to tell him what I saw, and I expressed some imagery. Can you tell me about that?
ELIAS: And express your imagery.
GAIL: It was a cube and it was rotating, and I viewed that it was rotating in the direction of a memory tile, and what was coming into it was tones on one side and color reflecting out from another side.
ELIAS: And what is your interpretation of this action?
GAIL: I really don’t know! That’s kind of why I’m asking you! (Laughing)
ELIAS: (Chuckling) Very well. Let me express to you that the reason I move in the direction of inquiring of you what your interpretation is, is to be encouraging you to be acknowledging of yourself and to be noticing of your impressions and of more of the actions that you engage while you are engaging these visualizations.
Many actions or impressions that you may be holding within these visualizations hold very subtle qualities, therefore are not so obviously viewed by you and may be overlooked. But in this fascination that you hold with creating visual imagery, you may be offering yourself more information and more validation of yourself, and also more acceptance of yourself, if you are allowing yourself to quiet yourself and be noticing those subtleties that are presenting themselves to you; not merely only the physical imagery or visualization itself, but the feelings and the movement that surround the imagery of the visualization.
Now; in this let me express to you that this once again serves as a focal point. You, as other individuals also, hold an ability in the area of visualization. Some individuals are connecting with information within different manners: some within feelings, some within thoughts, some within different engagements of physical senses, and some within visualizations. You move in the direction of visualizations, but regardless of what manner any individual is choosing to be connecting with information and offering themselves focal points in these areas, the subtleties are present in different manners, attaching themselves to these focal points that each of you may be connecting with and offering yourselves information.
Therefore, the cube, the visualization, the imagery is the focal point for your attention. This is a visual, a picture that offers you the directedness of your attention in one area. It allows you to focus your vision to not be distracting you in other areas.
In this, once your visual is directed and your attention has been placed upon the visual, you may move away from the attention upon the visual and direct your attention into the surrounding areas of the subtleties that you are offering to yourself for your own information. This, once again, is closely related to the exercise in clarity which has been offered. (3)
Now; be remembering also that you and I have engaged conversation, so to speak, in the area of this exercise in clarity several times. Within probabilities, the reason that there has been a focus with yourself, and also with my engagement with you, in the area of this exercise in clarity is that it may be very helpful to you in the directions that you now move. For if you have offered yourself the opportunity to be engaging your ability to manipulate your outer senses and move in the direction of focusing upon one outer sense and disengaging all others, or conversely, disengaging one and engaging all others, this allows you practice to be engaging this very action of which we speak this day – in your viewing a focal point and disengaging your attention, which is visual, upon that particular focal point and allowing yourself to clearly hone in, so to speak, upon the surrounding subtleties, which are the offerings of information within impressions and information of other areas of consciousness that you may be accessing.
You ask yourselves many times how you may be creating of a method to be engaging other areas of consciousness and other experiences than merely your singular, objective attention within your officially accepted reality. These may be classified as your methods ... although they are not methods! But in this you offer yourself the opportunity to create your own method, so to speak, of engaging information which shall provide you with your road maps for your movement into areas of experiences that your desire directs you into. It offers you the information for the blueprints of accessing other areas of consciousness and other information.
In this you may continue to be practicing with this particular cube, but do not be focused so attentively upon the visual and its movement, and allow yourself to be accessing the information which surrounds the visual.” [session 296, July 13, 1998]
ELIAS: “There are many areas that may be explored in the aspect of sexuality with respect to relationships. In physical terms, you may place this action as a physical experience that you create to be facilitating of new focuses to be physically entering into this physical dimension.
Now; you also attach significances to this physical action, and within the belief system of relationship you attach certain aspects of the belief system to this physical act, for within this physical act you are physically merging two physical forms, and in this action you may be creating of another physical form. Therefore, you attach great significance to this action. This is not to say that your attachment of significance is right or wrong. It merely is.
In this, you also allow yourselves certain openings. Let me explain.
Just as within certain actions you create focal points to allow yourselves more of an opening to self and to your own awarenesses and to energies, within your objective expressions such as your cards, your crystals, your astrology, your numerology, your rituals, you use these as focal points, as actions that you allow through your belief systems an opening to consciousness and to energy. In like manner, you create a focal point of an action of physical mergence in the area of the action of sexual intercourse.
In this, at times individuals allow themselves to move into an area of opening to their own awarenesses, and in this action of opening to their own awarenesses they may also within agreement allow themselves to open to each other. In this, they allow themselves to experience an exchange of energy and at times a mergence of energy which exceeds physical action.
Within the attachment of your symbolism, which is an aspect of the belief system, you also allow yourselves the ability to be accessing other areas of consciousness, other aspects of self, other aspects of other individuals. In this, if you are choosing and if you are allowing your own openness, you may access other areas of consciousness together that may be quite enlightening to you, so to speak, and may offer you an opening to a remembrance of self and of essence and of the energy of essence, and you may also allow yourself the excitement and exhilaration of not only a physical experience of energy, but also the knowing of the powerfulness of your OWN energy of essence which may be expressed THROUGH you.
You may experience this also individually, but belief systems lend themselves, in the accumulation of energy en masse, to an easement of accomplishment in certain areas. This be the reason that I express to you that belief systems are not bad. They may be limiting, but they are not bad, for in many aspects they lend themselves to your own accomplishments.
In this particular area, the aspect of sexuality may be quite lending of itself in areas of widening your own awareness and your own experiences. You may allow yourself the experience of mergence of essence and not only feel this within energy, but also physically, within your physical senses and within your nervous system of your physical form, if you are opening yourself to this awareness within this sexual activity. For you have created the aspect of the belief system to lend itself in this direction as facilitating to you as a focal point, in like manner to any of your props that you use within physical focus for your attention. They hold symbology, and where you attach symbology you also allow yourselves openness, and you allow yourselves more of your own widening in awareness.” [session 308, August 21, 1998]
PAUL: “I have a question about a dream. I’ve been listing the different focal points that I’m becoming aware of, and I’ve had a series of lucid or out-of-body experiences over the years where I image a chalkboard or a door, and there’s writing that comes. Over the years, initially I’ve had great difficulty in focusing and remembering the information being presented to myself, and in the last several years, it has gotten clearer.
I had one experience in particular in which I created a white tile. I was looking down from a dream environment in which I was in a city, an urban setting, and I looked down from a car, and that focal point allowed me to become lucid, or project into a lucid state. This was a white tile about ten inches by ten inches square, and there were five rows of black letters, and I had to concentrate on clarity. I issued a clarity command, and lo and behold, the titles of five books appeared on that tile!
All that I remember presently is that the third one was a long title that began ‘In Essence’ and continued with a subtitle, and that the fifth title contained three words, which I was very excited about because I remembered, and what furthered my excitement was that these were books that were written by you! And as I lapsed back into the dream state ... I typically remember these experiences or will try to remember so that when I awaken I can jot them down or speak them into my voice recorder.
So my question is about the nature of this focal point for me, and how I use that, and anything to help me continue to get information. And the second part is, did I actually tune into books that you have written, and are they most probable in our probabilities?
ELIAS: To the initial aspect of your question and your focal point, you are allowing yourself to be incorporating this to be accessing your imagery to yourself more efficiently, and also incorporating an objective remembrance within that action. Therefore, this facilitates your objective awareness in these areas of imagery within projections and also within dream state.
Now; I shall also express to you that although your dream imagery parallels your objective waking imagery, in a manner of speaking, you afford yourselves much more freedom in your expression of imagery creatively within your dream state. Your dream state imagery does not incorporate as much of an influence of absolutes as your waking imagery.
Therefore, be remembering in this that as you incorporate imagery within your dream state, you are not necessarily imaging what may be translated in absolute terms within your waking state, which moves us into the second aspect of your question and the incorporation of these books that are offered by myself.
I express to you that within probabilities, there ARE probabilities that have been set into motion already as to the incorporation of objective, physical books in which the information has been offered by myself, but it is not translated into what you have viewed within your dream imagery as an absolute, in the manner that I shall be creating these books in the format of books.
I shall not be, within this present time framework, incorporating the action of dictation and the creation of your physical books.
I have expressed previously to individuals that I shall be holding a willingness to be incorporating interaction with individuals in helpfulness if they are so choosing to be incorporating this action, but I shall not initiate this action myself and shall not be offering dictation for the creation of more of your books upon your shelves.
In this, my incorporation of interaction is to be engaging individuals and engaging their energy in objective manner. This is accomplished within groups and individually, and this is fulfilling of the intent and purpose that I have engaged in this interaction of this phenomenon.
I have not incorporated the direction of creating books. You may be creating of books. I shall be creating of interaction with individuals.
PAUL: That’s very clear, and thank you so much for that answer.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! You are quite welcome.
PAUL: We’ve been working in this area for quite some time. I have, and Joanne has also with David, and others I know. So thank you for that.” [session 455, August 25, 1999]
JOHN: “Seth has described certain occupations one takes on, for lack of a better term, beyond physical life. One of his is that of a teacher, and I suppose that is yours also. Curiously, he mentioned ... this is a two-part question, I suppose. He mentioned, one, if you dream of the Gates of Horn and so on and so forth ... and I don’t know how he meant that or what’s going on there. Two, he mentioned a certain profession where one helps people after death, and in this, I had a dream where I decided I was going to see what this was all about, and I did, and I was interacting with someone as a peer, and I realized or somehow it occurred to me that this is not mine – this is not my profession, although it is quite interesting. And then somebody was coming from another company to see another company, and this person from this other company was showing me around, like what he does and the operations and so forth. Could you comment on both, please?
ELIAS: Quite. I am understanding of what you are expressing.
As to each of these actions, or the expressions of these actions, be remembering that these are translations for your understanding within your physical objective awareness.
Now; in this, you may be offering yourself the suggestion concerning the Gates of Horn and employing this within your dream state, which creates a type of dream portal, in a manner of speaking, which allows you to be accessing information in other areas.
… In this, let me offer to you that you may be accessing this particular action within your dream state, and this offers you the ability to be moving freely through other areas of consciousness that you may not necessarily engage within your usual dream activity and imagery. Now....
JOHN: That’s exactly what Seth said, perhaps before I was born, I don’t know. It was in books written by Sue Watkins, if I remember correctly. How can I say ‘Gates of Horn,’ and all of a sudden, in three words, there I am with this dream portal?
ELIAS: Ah! This, in actuality, IS all that is required.
There are other methods in which you may be creating the same type of action also. You may be engaging a portal within your dream state through dream triggers or through the ‘activization’ of this particular summoning, so to speak, in the Gates of Horn. There are many methods....
JOHN: So those three words are somehow ingrained into my genetics? How do those three words come out of nowhere and suddenly invoke a dream portal in me?
ELIAS: This is not merely your accessing, but this is a design which has been created – associated with this particular physical dimension – as an avenue, which you have all agreed upon in the design of this particular physical dimension.
JOHN: Quite curious!
ELIAS: Therefore, any individual within this physical dimension may be incorporating that action and may be enacting this dream portal, and offering themselves an avenue to be accessing information within other areas of consciousness.
ELIAS: As to the professions, so to speak, in nonphysical areas of consciousness, let me express to you first of all that this also is a translation, for these are not quite professions, so to speak, but they are engagements of interest of certain aspects of the essence.
JOHN: So why do you bother? What do you gain out of these sessions?
ELIAS: This action that I engage within this phenomenon associated with your physical reality is an aspect of interest, so to speak, with myself as essence. There are aspects of my essence that engage this action with you in an exploration of my expressions of energy, filtered through different layers of consciousness, to be creating an interaction with a particular design of physical dimension.
In this also, this essence of Elias has chosen to be responsive to the requests of other essences which continue to be engaging interaction in physical focus within your particular physical dimension, in relation to this shift in consciousness.” [session 628, June 01, 2000]
FRANK: “Okay, I have two questions. Number one, how do I go about investigating these focuses, and number two, how do I benefit from doing that?
ELIAS: First of all, you may be allowing yourself to view other focuses that you participate within through relaxation methods, so to speak. You may also allow yourself to be interactive with other focuses through the action of projection or through dream interaction.
FRANK: Which do you think would work best for me? (Pause)
ELIAS: You may be allowing yourself more of an ease through dream interaction or through the action of meditation. You may experience more of a challenge in your attempt presently to be projecting, and allowing yourself to be viewing other focuses in that manner.
FRANK: I’m not sure I understand what you mean by projection. Can you define that?
ELIAS: Projection is the action of allowing aspects of your consciousness to be moving freely; not in association with your body consciousness.
Now; projection allows you the involvement, so to speak, of both objective and subjective awarenesses.
It is what many individuals within your physical focus presently identify as out-of-body experiences, although I may express to you that I identify a distinction between a projection of consciousness and what you may actually identify as an out-of-body experience.
For an element of your consciousness continues to be focused and interactive with the body consciousness within the action of projection. In a manner of speaking figuratively, you divide your awareness and allow an element of your consciousness to be continuing in interaction with your body consciousness subjectively, but you also allow yourself an element of your consciousness, subjectively and objectively, to be moving freely through consciousness, moving through the barriers, so to speak, of time, space, and even at times dimensions.
An actual out-of-body experience is the removal of your subjective awareness and its interaction with the body consciousness. Therefore, the body consciousness is, in a manner of speaking, left to be functioning temporarily without interactiveness or instruction from the subjective awareness.
In this, the action of an out-of-body experience may be engaged for much less time framework than a projection of consciousness, for there is, in effect, within your physical dimension, a necessity for instruction and interaction between the subjective awareness and the body consciousness to be continuing the functioning of the physical body.
Therefore, in projection, you allow yourself to move your consciousness, subjectively and objectively, in part, so to speak, away from your physical body consciousness, and without the encumbering of the physical matter of body expression, you may allow yourself more of a freedom of movement.
Now; let me express to you, this also is an influence of your belief systems, for in actuality, you may allow yourself this same type of movement WITH the incorporation of your physical body. But as you do not believe that you may move through time or space arrangements dimensionally incorporating the physical body expression, you do not allow yourself the freedom of that type of movement.
Whereas you DO allow yourself this type of movement in the design of what you create as what may be identified as an ‘astral body.’ This also is a creation that you have engaged as a means to be continuing with your identification of self as you move through consciousness.
Are you understanding?
ELIAS: In this, you may incorporate presently slightly more of a challenge in engaging that type of activity than you shall in engaging a meditation or your dream state to be investigating of other focuses.
As you engage a meditation, allow yourself a relaxation process, so to speak, but also offer yourself a directedness in that relaxation. In a manner of speaking, offer yourself the direction through a suggestion, but do not push with your energy, for as you force your energy, you also create an obstacle. Therefore, in offering yourself a direction through a suggestion, you may direct your energy more efficiently to be accessing certain focuses that you wish to be investigating of.
Within your dream state, you may incorporate either a suggestion prior to your entering of sleep state, or you may be accessing your dream trigger within your dream state as a portal, and once you have accessed your portal, you may direct your attention specifically to another focus of your essence. Or, you may also be engaging the expression within dream state of the Gates of Horn, so to speak, which also may activate a type of portal, so to speak, within consciousness, and allow you an ease in movement into the accessing of another focus.
FRANK: What is the Gates of Horn?
ELIAS: This is an expression which may be incorporated within consciousness. It is a type of trigger, so to speak.
In creating this expression within dream state, and also even at times prior to your sleep state, what you are activating, so to speak, is not necessarily an actual place, but a call, so to speak, to essence within consciousness.
It is a call to yourself, figuratively speaking, which creates a type of trigger that allows you to be moving spontaneously into other areas of consciousness, and specifically directing your movement into your objective, in a manner of speaking. This creates – once again, figuratively speaking – a type of direct pathway to other areas of consciousness that you wish to be accessing, through your energy of essence.
FRANK: Can I do this by suggestion, or how do I do this?
ELIAS: You may allow yourself to be offering the suggestion merely [by] expressing these words, so to speak, before entering your sleep state, or you may be expressing these words within your dream state.
FRANK: Saying the words is a suggestion that I want to access this?
ELIAS: Correct. Within your dream state, or even within your waking state prior to your engagement of sleep state, you may merely express the words of ‘the Gates of Horn,’ and this automatically creates the suggestion and creates a trigger, so to speak.” [session 674, August 04, 2000]
FRANK: “… the other thing I want to talk to you about is, the last time we spoke, we spoke of the Gates of Horn.
FRANK: I will say that I didn’t expend a lot of objective energy in this area, but some, like prior to going to sleep, I would either say Gates of Horn or give myself the suggestion of exploring focuses in this manner, and at least on an objective level, I didn’t notice that anything occurred, or that I had any success with that. So, can you speak to that? Maybe I did come up with something, and I just don’t know it?
ELIAS: Let me express to you, in this, once again, you view your actions very singularly, and in what we may say to be quite black and white terms, so to speak. For you engage an action, and subsequent to that, you hold an expectation quite narrowly of what shall be occurring and the interaction that you may be participating within, and as you create movement and it is not matching of your expectation, you automatically, once again, discount the action that you have engaged.
Now; objective memory is not always the physical indication or evidence of what you may term to be your successfulness.
In this, you presently are allowing yourself an exploration of these concepts in more of an expression of depth, so to speak, than merely what you view surfacely. And in this, as it is your desire and your creations follow your desire, you ARE in actuality creating the portal, so to speak, in the invocation of the Gates of Horn as you have engaged, but you are allowing yourself to be translating the subjective activity into objective action rather than thought.
Your objective memory of these types of action[s] is translated many times into thought, but this is not the only avenue available to you to be translating the action that is occurring within the subjective activity that you engage.
In this, once again I may be directing your attention to be noticing what you are creating within your mundane activities daily that are beginning to appear to you as flowing with more of an ease.
FRANK: Hmm, okay! Well, many things are flowing more easily for me.
ELIAS: This is your evidence.
Many times you attribute the flow in ease within your objective creations and interactions to the concentration of your thoughts, and I may express to you that in a manner of speaking, at times this may be deceptive, for your thoughts are not always that which is creating more of an ease within your movement. In actuality, there are other expressions of energy which, in a manner of speaking, precede the thoughts in the creation of more of an ease in your flow of movement. Therefore, allow yourself to be paying attention to your actual directions and how you are directing of yourself.
In this, as you create a suggestion, so to speak, to yourself to be accessing certain triggers or portals within consciousness, you are creating this suggestion and action specifically to be accessing certain information. You are not randomly creating this type of an action. Therefore, within your objective waking state, it may be evidenced in other manners, and not necessarily merely within memory.” [session 693, September 18, 2000]
FRANK: “I would like to ask you about a dream I had.
ELIAS: Very well.
FRANK: This was on the night of the 30th. In this dream I was on my driveway, and I saw an unfamiliar dog on the end of the driveway trying to eat a bag of garbage that I had placed there. I threw something at the dog, a rock or a stone or something, that I expected would scare him away. But instead he turned towards me and he started to growl, and I had the sense that he might attack me. At first I was very scared and backed off. But then somehow ... I don’t know if I gained some measure of lucidity in the dream, but I either realized it was only a dream or somehow I got the courage to stand up to this dog.
So at this point I may have realized that the image was keeping me away from what I thought at the time was the Gates of Horn – I’m not sure as I wrote it down. But I went directly to the dog and stuck my hand in his mouth and pulled a key out of his body. The next thing I knew I was traveling very rapidly down some sort of a passage, and it had a lot of twists and turns and side passages that I didn’t take but that I knew were there. During this time I was thinking that I was going to the Gates of Horn. So, that was my dream, and perhaps you could interpret that.
ELIAS: Offer to me your impression.
FRANK: My impression was that it was some sort of a breakthrough, you know, that I had fear of some subjective thing that was going on, or level that I was trying to get to, or breakthrough I was trying to make, in that I overcame my fear of it and moved in that direction. Since then, that’s been sort of easing my movement.
ELIAS: You are correct in your interpretation. I may also express to you, in addition to your interpretation, that this was not merely imagery that you present to yourself in relation to hesitancy or fear, but also an initial presentment to yourself concerning distraction. As you create the imagery of the creature engaging its initial action, the element of distraction is that you turn to this creature in a movement of a lack of acceptance of his behavior. Correct?
FRANK: Yes, right.
ELIAS: Now; the imagery that you are presenting to yourself in that action is your identification of turning your attention and distracting yourself from your movement by concerning yourself with the action of the creature.
In this, once you turn your attention once again back to yourself, the behavior or the movement of the creature is no longer a concern to you, therefore is no longer a distraction. And in this, you allow yourself to approach the creature and recognize that in that approach and actual interaction with the creature, it offers you a key, an allowance for the movement that you wish to be creating.
Now; I may express to you, this is quite symbolic in the imagery that you have created, for this also is an expression that may be related to what you are creating and moving into objectively. As always, as I have expressed previously, your dream imagery in actuality moves in harmony with your objective imagery; they are merely expressed differently. But the subject matter, in a manner of speaking, is the same.
In this, as you are objectively moving into an expression of allowing yourself to turn your attention to self and not be distracted by what you view as outward interactions or the movement and choices of other individuals, you offer yourself a new expression of freedom in allowing yourself a fuller interaction with these other individuals, and as I have stated, more of an expression of acceptance concerning other individuals, for you are paying attention to YOU and expressing more of an acceptance of yourself, and in like manner to your dream imagery, this is key within your movement.” [session 790, February 26, 2001]
ANJULI: “After the last session one week ago I had an experience, and this was very interesting. I thought I probably first talk with you about an imagery I have and I am often using which works very well for me, and that is what I call the world tree. I imagine there would be a huge, huge, huge, huge tree. I can go into the inner of this tree, and in the inner it is wooden and with moss and with all kinds of patterns, and there are stairs and rooms but naturally grown from the tree. So I walk upstairs, and there are openings in the tree which lead to all kinds of dimensions or places or whatever I would like to experience. Then I come higher and higher, and then I am in a room and in the room I meet a being which I experience as female, but she showed me that this is not necessarily how she ... I sometimes saw her as a bird or also as male, but in general as female, and I don’t talk with her. It is just a peaceful experience of coming home. So I am using this before I go to sleep when I had a little bit of a challenging day, and it is always a feeling of coming home, of letting go of worries or even of the experience of this dimension.
ELIAS: Yes, and offering yourself the creation of an expression of imagination to allow yourself movement into calm.
ANJULI: Am I using more this imagery for to kind of move home, into myself?
ANJULI: Or this is for sure the thing, that I move home into the self?
ANJULI: Is it at the same time a connection with an essence, or not?
ELIAS: With YOUR essence.
ANJULI: With mine, not an additional, with another one.
ELIAS: No. This is entirely an expression that you have created in association with yourself, with you as essence. In this, your imagery of the tree, which incorporates all of these different expressions or that which you view as rooms and openings, are all symbolic imagery of yourself as essence, as the tree, creating imagery that is suggestive of powerful strength of structure and being, but also offering many, many avenues of discovery and many avenues to be investigating and exploring. Therefore, each encounter that you may create in this imagery may be viewed as another aspect of you as essence.
ANJULI: Then I will use it more often! (Both laugh) Yes, I already had the feeling if I would use it I could discover all kinds of focuses that I have, or anything.
ELIAS: You are quite correct.
ANJULI: ... A few hours later, after the session, I started to go to bed and at first was a mixture of excited and tired, and then I used this world tree imagery. After that, I suddenly understood in what kind of an experience I was, because I just remembered my writings and I discovered what it was or why it was, and I discovered that I can use the tools of this physical dimension, like emotions or whatever, for reaching up to this unfamiliar/familiar. So it was not feeling like well, I kind of want it, or how do I do it, or I forget about my emotions or I undo them or any kind of thing like that, but I used them as a tool.
This was then so amazing, because I started to fall asleep, and then it was an experience as if I visited you. I experienced you as a kind of an energy field, and my dimension was no longer there but I was still experiencing myself as sleeping in my bed but the rest of the house was gone and everything around me was gone, and I knew with full certainty that this was you, and then I focused just on this experience, and it lasted for a little while.
ELIAS: Quite! You are allowing yourself to experiment in manipulating energy, and allowing yourself the recognition of your own abilities concerning energy and how you may be manipulating it, and in this you allow yourself to incorporate certain imagery as a portal in like manner to dream triggers, although you are incorporating imagery that has become familiar to you, not necessarily in dream imagery.
But you may be incorporating any imagery within the dream state or within the waking state to be accomplishing the same focal point that you may engage as a portal to allow yourself movement in creating different types of experiences, validating to yourself your genuine ability to be generating much more within consciousness than you have been familiar with previously. This also familiarizes you with yourself as essence – not as a piece of essence, but as essence.
ANJULI: The experience of as if my physical dimension is no longer there, was this like a going elsewhere or like a shifting of consciousness or of focus to ... no, not like going elsewhere, because I did not have the feeling that I am going elsewhere. It was more like maybe shifting attention?
ELIAS: Yes! It is an action of shifting attention, allowing yourself to move your attention, which offers you a tremendous example in experience of your ability to move your attention and to view what occurs as you do move your attention.
What is created, as I have stated, is dependant upon where you direct your attention. If your attention is directed singularly in one expression or one area, so to speak, you shall generate experiences and you shall create in association with the direction of your attention. If your attention is focused singularly within this physical manifestation, you shall concern yourself with creations in association with merely this manifestation, and you do not interrupt or view any other aspect of yourself but this one manifestation and focus of attention.
But be remembering, I have stated previously, this is precisely a focus of attention. Therefore, you as essence may shift your attention, and dependent upon the concentration of attention and the singularity of it, what you recognize in this particular attention as yourself may, in a manner of speaking, disappear.” [session 929, October 18, 2001]
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]
JIM: “... A dream that I had a while back where I asked to go to the Gates of Horn, that was a very cool dream. I was offered three gifts. One was the Excalibur sword, one was bloodstone, and one was three pounds of flax. (Elias smiles) I thought about this a lot, the symbolism of the Excalibur with Camelot and so forth, the bloodstone with its qualities, and the three pounds of flax being one of the descriptions that one of the Buddhists offered as an explanation for Buddha: ‘What is Buddha?’
I was wondering about some insights into that dream, perhaps, perhaps just a brief ... and again, they were very tall people that offered me, and I felt a presence of you as well there, if I recall.
ELIAS: Correct. I shall express to you, the sword is symbolic of strength. The stone is symbolic of wisdom and appreciation. The flax is symbolic of understanding, therefore compassion. And these are the most significant expressions of self.
JIM: Okay! Very cool. Thank you!
ELIAS: (Laughs) You are quite welcome.
JIM: Well, yeah, thanks to all our friends. I went out and bought an Excalibur sword off of EBay and three pounds of flax and I’ve had a bloodstone for years, that I got from our previous session. (Elias laughs) Okay, that just gives me more trust in my path. I knew that dream was very lucid. I woke up right away and I had to write down my gifts. It was very cool.
ELIAS: These are the gifts of yourself, my friend, that which is the makeup of yourself, so to speak, the most significant expressions of an individual: the strength of their individual power of energy and how that allows you all of your abilities in whatever direction you may choose; the knowing that you incorporate this tremendous power and the appreciation, which is the expression of love, and in that the wisdom of the appreciation; and the quality of compassion, which is understanding. If you generate these three expressions in harmony with each other, you express acceptance and you generate fullness, and there is no expression that you cannot create.
JIM: I’m finding that out. I’m learning that, gaining more trust in that all the time.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) You are quite welcome. I am acknowledging of you, for you have exhibited quite a difference in your energy in the expression of trust now, in difference to previous expressions.
JIM: You know, I’ve felt that a lot over these last months, year. Particularly I’d say within the last six months I’ve felt a real difference. So that’s where it’s aligned to.
ELIAS: And you are generating quite differently objectively also, accomplishing much more easily than you have previously.
JIM: Yes, and the way things seem to be falling into place and allowing that, it’s all good!” (Both laugh) [session 1144, October 04, 2002]
NAOMI: “I’d like to know if the pendulum I have been using is valid for me as a way of connecting with my subjective situation?
ELIAS: Yes. It is a focal point, allowing you to focus your energy and your attention, and therefore providing yourself with an avenue to be listening to yourself in a concentration.
NAOMI: I’ve been concerned that I may be influencing the responses I get with my own energy versus...
ELIAS: But it IS your energy! (Chuckles)
NAOMI: So basically it’s telling me what I want to hear at the time.
NAOMI: Well, I’m such an impatient person, and I want to know the future right now. (Laughs)
ELIAS: (Chuckles) But the future IS now. Therefore, the manner in which you recognize what you shall be creating in the future is to be paying attention to what you are generating now, for that sets the direction of the future.
NAOMI: I saw some books that would supposedly help you get answers to questions by using the pendulum. Is that a valid method? Would that be worth pursuing?
ELIAS: It is your choice. You are aware that this is an avenue of communication that you have established with yourself, and if you are choosing to incorporate specific methods that you resonate with and you trust within your interaction of this focal point, that is acceptable.
Be remembering that these are methods, but that what you are engaging is allowing yourself to practice trusting your own communications and trusting yourself in trusting your impressions and what you offer to yourself, viewing that as valid and not dismissing it.
NAOMI: One more question about the pendulum, when I ask questions about other people’s energy, is that as valid as when I’m asking about my own?
ELIAS: Yes, but also recognize that this is associated with your perception. Therefore, listen to your intuition and trust your impressions, but remember that although they are valid – which they are – they are associated with your perception and therefore filtered through your expressed beliefs. They are quite real, for beliefs are quite real, and your perception is quite real for it creates all of your reality. Therefore, it is not invalid but that does not mean that it is an absolute.
NAOMI: I understand; thank you.” [session 1450, September 28, 2003]

(1) Vic’s note: people did respond in interesting ways to this “scatteredness of energy,” both physically and emotionally, especially during the first few weeks of sessions. Also, this affected our ability to tape Elias’ voice. Initially, there was only static on the tapes whenever Elias would speak. This changed after about a month of sessions.
(2) Paul’s note: Yarr is the essence name that Elias uses to refer to Jim.
Digests: find out more about essences names.
(3) 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.
