the belief system of inner senses; empathic

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “You may use your empathic sense to be connecting with aspects of yourself which are affecting of yourself, and you may also be using this sense to be connecting with yourself. Each element, each molecule, each cell, each atom that you incorporate within your physical expression possesses consciousness. In this, it experiences. You may use your empathic sense to be connecting with the experience of your physical existence, if you are so choosing, or if you are needing to be affecting of a challenge within this area.” [session 57, November 26, 1995]

ELIAS: “You may experience empathy, for another individual or creature, for whatever they may be experiencing. This is not to say that you are choosing to empathically experience what they are experiencing. If you are viewing a creature or an individual which you view to be suffering, you may feel quite sorry for this creature or individual. You may incorporate empathy for them, but you may not wish to be occupying their space, and being them; (pause) this being an element of your fear, and your lack of trust, and your isolation of self, which each of you holds. I will be quite willing to say to you that if you are viewing a disaster, and a broken body of another individual, you may be willing to be helpful, but you will not be willing to lie down in their space and be experiencing their trauma! This is empathic.” [session 57, November 26, 1995]

ELIAS: “You have allowed yourselves the opportunity to be experiencing your empathic sense, which allows you to disassociate with your physical being and merge with another physical entity. You have also been presented with the opportunity to be experiencing your beingness and its intricacies through our exercise in clarity.” (1) [session 162, April 06, 1997]

ELIAS: “Also, I wish you not to be forgetful of your empathic sense; for this particular inner sense, as we move into our new agenda, shall be come quite valuable to you. This shall be helpful to you within your understanding. It shall also be quite helpful to you within the action of this shift and your participation in it. If you are understanding of your fellow individuals and their belief systems through your empathic sense, you shall be accepting and you shall eliminate many of your own obstacles, which you have already experienced. ‘How do I express to another individual adequately this information of this shift?’ You shall offer yourself these answers if you are allowing yourself to be engaging your empathic sense, and therefore understanding another individual and approaching the individual in a manner that they shall understand and accept. This is accomplished initially by your acceptance. You must be accepting first.

As with all things, we return once again to the base, which is: you must be accepting of you and trusting of you and knowing you and understanding all of the elements of yourself, that you may be efficiently manipulating these elements in the creation of your own reality; not for the purpose of creating your own reality, for you shall create your reality regardless, but for the purpose of this shift; this being the reason you have drawn yourselves to this information, this being what you approach now within consciousness.” [session 166, April 20, 1997]

FEMALE: “I was wondering if you could perhaps interpret an experience that I had. It was within the past two years. I was in a very peaceful place outdoors and I was looking at a very big old beautiful tree, and I was kind of losing what was happening around me and just focusing on the tree, and it felt like all of a sudden I was gone from me, and I was moving fast right towards the tree, and then into the tree and down, and there were things just rushing by and rushing by, and all of a sudden it just felt like I just shot out. I can’t remember what else was happening to me, but I remember that it was this very powerful feeling and experience that I had.

ELIAS: You may be connecting with this action once again, if you are so choosing. You may be intentionally practicing this action and offering yourself very similar experiences.

This is engaging your empathic sense. Your empathic sense is one of your inner senses which allows you the ability to merge with any other thing within your physical focus. It may be another individual, it may be a creature, it may be a rock, it may be a tree ... any element within your physical focus, for all that is created within your physical focus is comprised of consciousness. Therefore, it all is experiencing within consciousness, just as you experience, but each element experiences differently. You may allow yourself the opportunity to be experiencing what any other aspect of consciousness experiences by engaging your empathic sense.

My, this is an evening for exercises! I have also offered exercises that you may be accessing that shall be offering you practice in engaging your empathic sense.

Now; I caution you each in this area, that in engaging your empathic sense, be remembering that you also, within your excitement of these engagements, lean in the direction of excessiveness, and in this you assume the experience of another individual or any other element. This is unnecessary and may become uncomfortable to you. Therefore, allow yourself the practice of engaging your empathic sense and the mergence with any other particular experience, but do not assume it as your own. Allow it to flow freely.” [session 298, July 16, 1998]

TOM: “I had an experience where I felt energy heat my face the other day – could you comment on that? – from another person’s look. Would you have any comments?

ELIAS: This would be an allowance of yourself to be opening more to the recognition of your energy field.

In this, what I am expressing to you is that you may be receiving energy from other individuals, and if you are allowing yourself the relaxation of your energy field, you may be experiencing quite easily projections of energy from other individuals, that you may in actuality physically feel their energy. This is a type of empathic expression. It is an outer expression of your empathic sense; your allowance to be experiencing another individual’s energy.

This type of action in actuality may be somewhat easier to be accomplishing than to be accomplishing the actual mergence within the empathic sense with another individual, but as individuals focus their attention intensely in the direction of exercising this empathic sense – in the area of mergence – to be experiencing the entirety of another individual’s experience, they may be overlooking this particular aspect of that inner sense, that you may be allowing yourself to be connecting with the energy of another individual, which may be at times quite pleasant!

TOM: Well, it was quite pleasant, (Elias chuckles) and very interesting! I will have to keep an eye out, so to speak, for more of that.” [session 379, March 28, 1999]

LISSETTE: “I have another question. What would my biggest blockage be, and of course I know that it is acceptance, but belief-wise?

ELIAS: Let me express to you that within your individual intent, this area of acceptance and trust – underlying trust of self – is a very large issue. This extends into your individual intent, which within your alignment of the Tumold family prevents you many times in offering what you may express as genuine expressions that you hold, for you do not trust the validity of your own abilities. In this, at times you may be confused by belief systems in the area of metaphysics as they concern certain aspects of healing in relation to other individuals. Now....

LISSETTE: Can I ask something?


LISSETTE: Would this have to do with the way I feel I know what’s wrong with people? Sometimes I just feel I know what the problems with people are and I think, ‘Are these my beliefs working here or is this my imagination, or is this really happening and why is it happening, and why do I know? What am I supposed to do with it?’ ’Cause sometimes I tell people things and I’m not being helpful. They’re resenting me. I do it to help, but I have understood that you cannot help people if they do not want to be helped, and I’m really being intrusive. So why do I keep on feeling I know these things, and am I really knowing them or am I imagining this?

ELIAS: Ah, and this is the point of which I am speaking to you. First of all, you ARE allowing yourself to be accessing your own inner knowing, and in this, it is not what you term within your beliefs to be your imagination. You are in actuality allowing yourself to be connecting to information in alignment with your intent of being helpful in a healing manner concerning other individuals, but you are choosing certain methods of expressing this information which are very influenced by your beliefs.

In this, what I offer to you this day is to be looking to self and engaging your inner senses.

In this, I am encouraging you to be engaging your empathic sense as you engage another individual, for if you are engaging your empathic sense, this shall allow you the ability to merge, to a point, with the other individual, and allow you the knowing of their experience; not merely the thought and identification of the situation that they are creating, but to be feeling what they are feeling and experiencing what they are experiencing, therefore allowing you the knowing of the perception that they hold, and in this, you may apply the information that you have already accessed in your knowing, and you may offer helpfulness to them in the most efficient manner.

At times, offering helpfulness within a healing manner to another individual may not necessarily engage speaking to them. In this, you hold a great ability to be offering a healing energy to other individuals that may not necessarily be verbal.

This is not to say that you may not engage speaking to them also, but that your speaking to them may be directed through a different angle which does not necessarily address directly to the issue that they are dealing with, for many times as you engage in what we express as a head-on direction, the other individual may deflect your energy, for they may not necessarily hold an objective willingness to view their own creation and accept responsibility objectively for their creation. Therefore, at times it may be more efficient for you to be recognizing these situations empathically and offering helpfulness directing to their issues, but from a different angle. Are you understanding?

LISSETTE: Yeah, in a way. Something that maybe has nothing to do with the issue at hand would be the thing that would help them think about the issue at hand. Is that what you are saying?

ELIAS: Quite. Many times as you are offering information to another individual, it may be received much more easily if it is not directed to their personal experience. Therefore, it does not appear threatening to them, for the idea of accepting responsibility for one’s own creation may be, within the individual’s belief systems, overwhelming to them initially.” [session 391, May 04, 1999]

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

ELIAS: Correct.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is beneficial to you in more than one manner.

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

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

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

RODNEY: I thank you so much for that.

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

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

ELIAS: Quite, for this is distracting.

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

ELIAS: Quite.

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

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

NORM: “I’m very interested in inner senses. You have stated before that we all have and use inner senses, but we do not have the memory or we do not objectively realize the memory of this. I guess my question is, if we all have and use this, do we initialize it? I mean, when I was younger and so on and so forth, through all my life, have I initialized the use of inner senses? The subjective side of me has the memory, and then to get to the objective side ... are there impulses that come down that we have feelings? We do use this you were saying, and I was trying to get the idea of the “have” and the “use” that you meant in “we all have and use inner senses.” You follow what I’m saying?

ELIAS: And your question is?

NORM: The question is, do we consciously initialize these inner senses but we don’t realize the answers? We do not have the memory objectively of the initiation and the action of using the inner senses?

ELIAS: At times.

NORM: At times we do? So it’s like a feeling that we get?

ELIAS: At times; not necessarily.

NORM: One of the things that I’ve always felt since I’ve read Seth, almost ten years ago now, is the discussion of the inner senses and, of course, I always had the feeling that if you wanted to explore consciousness it would be very efficient to explore consciousness using inner senses. The human’s use of inner senses would be able to explore consciousness much better; really what I’m talking about is scientific work to attempt to understand it from an objective standpoint. So in other words, it would be much more efficient for me as a scientist to have and use inner senses with a memory actively, very actively.

ELIAS: It is dependent upon which area of consciousness you are attempting to be exploring.

NORM: You indicated to me some years ago about the heartbeat of the earth, and I’ve been trying to get the feeling of what that heartbeat is, if it’s an actual motion of the hot plasma in the earth and then that influence the magnetic fields of the earth, and so on and so forth. That would be an example.

ELIAS: Correct. And in this example you are correct; engaging your inner senses, that of your empathic sense, may be quite beneficial in allowing you to merge with this manifestation of consciousness.

NORM: Right, the earth is like a thing, and I can get the feelings that it has. Does it actually have feelings? What will I feel empathically?

ELIAS: This is dependent upon your experience. Let me express to you, Stephen, that which you view and recognize or identify as this “thing” of the earth is actually a projection of you. Therefore, the method, so to speak, may be much more efficient in allowing yourself the understanding that this is actually a projection of you, of your perception. Therefore it is not a separate entity from you, and in allowing yourself to move into yourself, recognizing that this thing that you view as your earth is in actuality a part of you, tapping into your empathic sense to be allowing yourself sense data in relation to this entity, if you will, you may allow yourself to experience that movement, that action.

It may not necessarily be experienced as a feeling, but it may. This is dependent upon your translation objectively of the experience. It may be translated as a feeling. It may be translated as a sensing. You may experience it as an action which may not necessarily translate as a feeling; but it may, dependent upon your translation.

NORM: I’ve been attempting to develop my idea of projection. My idea is that I am comparing that to a theater where I create the stage and the scenes and the actors. There’s other people in the theater and they may see my creation up there, but their belief systems and everything else is the thing that they see. It can be like a dual creation. Am I getting close to the right attitude and imagination of what is really happening in this concept of projection and creation?


NORM: And so I can look at the earth and see different things than Dehl can?


NORM: And beautifully ... okay. So I’m all right there.

It appears that I’m trying to allow and explore the inner senses without fear, and I’m trying to understand that, heck, I really do this in a sense all the time. All I have to do is pull the veil from my subjective to objective memory, or I have to allow that to occur. Am I imagining that correctly? Is the mass consciousness going to be influencing of everybody in the shift here and allowing these inner senses? Because of that, we will have really a new reality here.

ELIAS: Correct, although it is not in actuality the mass expression or consciousness that is affecting, per se, for it is the movement of each individual which, in a manner of speaking, does create the mass expression. But each individual in their movement within this shift ripples within consciousness and offers a lending of energy to the collective to be generating the objective expression of this shift in consciousness, and you are correct that it is altering of your reality. It is already altering of your reality and it shall become more and more swiftly accomplished.” [session 989, January 21, 2002]

Digests: find out more about mergence.

Exercises: find out more about the inner senses; empathic and conceptualization exercise.

End Notes:

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

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

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