the belief system of inner senses; differential time
ELIAS: “This sense of differential time allows you the ability to disassociate yourself with your created time framework within this particular dimension of physical focus. You in actuality use this inner sense very often. You engage this inner sense each time that you involve yourself with your dream imagery. You also, in what you classify as daydreaming, employ this inner sense. You, during other altered states of consciousness, automatically involve this inner sense. You do not recognize your usage of this inner sense, but your consciousness is intimately familiar with practicing this inner sense.” [session 166 April 20, 1997]
ELIAS: “This inner sense [of differential time] is not necessarily merely the identification of differences within time frameworks or sensing differences within time frameworks, but the actual allowance of yourself to be recognizing the flexibility of time and your ability to be manipulating it; that time is an invention or a creation of your perception within this physical dimension, and that it is quite elastic and that it is also quite changeable, and may vary considerably between individuals.
“You look to the element of time as being an absolute, as you look at many elements within your physical dimension as absolutes, but I express to you that it is not an absolute.
“In this, it may be quite changeable and bendable by each individual, regardless that you may be participating in an officially accepted reality within a particular physical dimension. Even within the guidelines of your officially accepted reality, the configuration of linear time may be altered.” [session 506 November 24, 1999]
ELIAS: “As we move futurely into the discussion of the inner sense which involves your time framework, this shall also encompass the existing idea of what you now think of as psychological time. (1) I do not incorporate this terminology, for as you are aware, I do not incorporate psychology. Therefore, we shall not be addressing this sense within the terminology of psychological time, although the concept is the same and encompassed within the entirety of the inner sense which deals with your interaction with time. This is a very difficult inner sense to be objectively manipulating, for you are very accustomed to moving through physical focus within a time framework. All of your objective consciousness is involved and centered around a time framework. Therefore, it is more difficult for you to be disassociating with this element. It shall be easier if you are learning to be engaging these other inner senses prior to attempting to disassociate with your camouflage of time. It is difficult enough to be disassociating yourselves with any element of your camouflage.” [session 162, April 6, 1997]
ELIAS: “We have been dealing with inner senses for some time period, although I have not designated them as specifically inner senses, except for empathic and conceptualization. Added to this, you hold an inner sense which deals with your time construct. This inner sense, when engaged, allows you the ability to disassociate yourselves with your creation of time. In this, you may experience no time. You may experience dream time elements, and you may also experience the overlapping effect of what you view to be past, present, and future. You may accomplish tapping this inner sense within your waking state, just as you may tap all other inner senses within your waking state. It is not necessary for you to be engaging your sleep state to be connecting with what you think of as the inner you.” [session 162, April 06, 1997]
PAUL: “... differential time, this third fundamental sense, I guess I look at it in two primary ways, such as when, when/where, in terms of perhaps objective terms, but also duration, and I know you’ve talked a lot about compressed and expanded time, and certainly in this state of projection, the time sense is very different.
There’s one scenario I want to bounce off of you today in which I connected with a focus of mine – I suspect it was a woman – and in the moment, it just seemed ... I was asking her, ‘What time do you come from?’ I guess that’s where I was at, at the moment. In other words, I sensed she was not from this present now or time framework that I live in. She did not answer me, but I’m wondering if that is the sort of thing, in terms of time sense, that I was attempting to engage in that action.
ELIAS: This inner sense is not necessarily merely the identification of differences within time frameworks or sensing differences within time frameworks, but the actual allowance of yourself to be recognizing the flexibility of time and your ability to be manipulating it; that time is an invention or a creation of your perception within this physical dimension, and that it is quite elastic and that it is also quite changeable, and may vary considerably between individuals.
You look to the element of time as being an absolute, as you look at many elements within your physical dimension as absolutes, but I express to you that it is not an absolute.
In this, it may be quite changeable and bendable by each individual, regardless that you may be participating in an officially accepted reality within a particular physical dimension. Even within the guidelines of your officially accepted reality, the configuration of linear time may be altered.
PAUL: Interesting, and clear.
So one follow-up question to that would be, I have experiences where my objective memory may or may not contain lots of specifics, but I wake up from the experience with the sense of bigness or vastness. Would that be an example of manipulating time – the sense of having experienced an entire book’s worth of experiences in several hours?
ELIAS: Indirectly; not ... not directly. But indirectly, it may be identified in conjunction with this inner sense.
This is an identification of a momentary recognition of the being of essence, and not necessarily an action which is engaged through this particular inner sense.
As I have stated, the action which is incorporated by this inner sense is to in actuality be manipulating of time itself, and creating the translation of that manipulation of time in energy into objective terms, in which you hold an objective recognition that you have bent time or that you have altered its configuration.
You DO this action quite frequently, and you express and experience it in objective terms, but you do not allow yourself to be noticing. You ARE accomplishing this reconfiguration of time or manipulation of time very often, and you are accomplishing this in objective terms, but you are not allowing yourself an objective awareness of it as you are creating it.
And this would be an element of what you move into now within the action of this shift, to be becoming more aware of what you are creating objectively and to be noticing what you are automatically creating already.
ALL of what you hold in abilities is being expressed already. You merely do not allow yourself an objective recognition of the abilities that you hold.
It is not the situation that you are creating this shift in consciousness to be allowing yourselves new abilities or to be creating new abilities, or abilities that you have not held previously. You already hold all of these abilities and are already exercising them! You merely do not allow yourself to be noticing or to be objectively aware of what you are already creating.
And I am not expressing to you that you are creating entirely subjectively. I am expressing to you that you are already creating objectively, and you are not allowing yourself an awareness of what you are creating.
This be the reason that I am expressing to individuals so very often that there is no element of your reality that is hidden from you. There is no subconscious or unconscious or beneath conscious or below conscious or removed consciousness from you. You merely do not pay attention. You merely do not notice what you are already creating. It is all available to you objectively, and you ARE objectively creating all that you seek to be creating effortlessly. You merely do not notice and you do not pay attention.
And this is the point – allowing yourselves to be dropping the veils that you have created and to be allowing yourselves the objective recognition and noticing of what you are already creating, and in this, you allow yourselves to be expanding what you are creating, for you allow yourselves more of your expression of creativity in what you are already expressing in ability.
PAUL: Thanks for the reminder! (They both laugh) It would seem that in terms of this shift in consciousness, in a sense, that we’ve been the sleepwalkers and that we're beginning to awaken, so to speak, in terms of this noticing that you're talking about, and noticing how we're creating these things automatically and effortlessly, so that we have greater ability to explore and manipulate.
ELIAS: Quite! You are correct.” [session 506 November 24, 1999]
(1) Paul’s note: Seth/Jane Roberts uses the term “psychological time” to describe one of, what s/he termed, nine inner senses.
This concept was originally presented in The Seth Material, (1970), Chapter 19, The Inner Senses.
Elias has presented three fundamental inner senses to date that cover the same region of subjective perception. They are:
Elias’ description is intentionally general so as to make this concept more understandable. He has offered some additional information on what he terms the inner senses of tone, touch, telepathy, and clairvoyance.
