pools of consciousness

Elias “gems”

JIM: “I have a question for Kacchi [Jill], if I may (reading the question), ‘Is it possible to be an equal blend of all essence families, thus through the lifetime of this particular blend of essences, focusing on a particular individual essence at different times, influenced by factors common to this physical focus and relative, of course, to our time element, and finally transpiring to a coherent balance of harmonic splendor, and lending to the dissolution of the push-pull of our awareness to the polarity in this focus, to move forward to, I’ll use the term ‘trinity?’ (Whew!)

ELIAS: (Grinning widely) “Shall I be expressing, no? (Laughter)

JIM: “That’s funny! My first impression was yes and no.

ELIAS: “Within physical focus and your manifestation in physical focus, no. Within non-physical focus and your incorporation of energy, yes and no; for you shall always, until such a time as you are all, as we are all, choosing to be manifesting consciousness differently, the possibility or the probability exists of no particular alignment with any particular essence family; but within the reality of consciousness presently of essence, there are alignments engaged with essence families. I have expressed that you do identify and express aspects of all of the essence families.

“This is a difficult area, for we are approaching [a] distortion area presently. I have expressed these essence families presented are directly connected with physical focus; your physical focus upon this planet, upon this dimension; but I have also expressed that there are pools of consciousness that align which you may, within your limited terms, also consider similar to essence families, although they are not essence families, so to speak; but within the action of consciousness, each essence, within essence consciousness, does align with either an essence family or a pool area of consciousness. This is not to say that it is not possible to be unaligned with any particular essence pool or consciousness pool or family. It is only to say that within the element of essence, not the all of consciousness, although it is the all of consciousness, (grinning) essences align with families or consciousness pools. Links of consciousness do not. The Creating Universal One And Whole does not. Essence does ... and does not!” [session 111, August 11, 1997]

ELIAS: “I have spoken to you of pools of consciousness, which you may also view as species of consciousness within physical focus and within your experimentation of your species; although all species, of all that you view to be living organisms upon your planet, have experimented within their species, developing what they choose to be their most efficient expression to this moment. This is not to say that you may not progress further within your expression of each individual species, for you shall, for you are continuously within a state of becoming, as we have stated previously. Therefore, there is no stagnation or static non-movement within consciousness. Within the idea of these pools of consciousness and probable selves, you have created a line, so to speak, of selectivity within probabilities. This extends far beyond your individual expressions, for you create this en masse also, and you have created this throughout your history.” [session 115, August 25, 1996]

ELIAS: “There are pools of consciousness, as we have expressed, but they are not individual, singular pools. There are pools within pools within pools, merged and interconnected and intersected with each other, inside and outside of each other, in your terms. There are infinite amounts of intersections that occur continuously. You only view those which are expressed outwardly, objectively; [those] that you may see. Just as we have expressed the connections of probabilities that you do not see, you also do not see the movement that you involve yourselves with, which is much greater than you imagine.” [session 120, September 15, 1996]

RETA: “In other dimensions, would they have the workings and still be with the same sort of nine essence families?”

ELIAS: “Each dimension is created within a different focus. Therefore, each dimension does not necessarily hold nine essence families to be directing of their particular dimension. It varies, depending upon the design of the physical dimension.”

NORM: “Does that imply that there are more than the nine families? Out of all the pools, are there more than nine different families of those pools?”

ELIAS: “Within other dimensions, yes; not within this dimension.”

NORM: “Within all of reality.”

ELIAS: “Within all of reality, there are numberless pools of consciousness directing numberless realities.” [session 208, August 17, 1997]

Elias “gems”

ELIAS: “There also is what you may term to be psychic pools of consciousness. These pools of consciousness are connected directly with your physical focus, and also directly with your time periods; for you have created this dimensional focus with time, therefore you also create movements which correspond with your physical time. In this, you also incorporate pools of consciousness which may be directly aligned with each of your centuries; this being one reason why individuals believe that they incorporate inner knowings of movements within different centuries. They are connecting within a collective consciousness to a knowing of something. They attach belief systems to explain what they do not understand, but they are correct in focusing upon certain movements of certain centuries.

As you now approach a new century, you are moving into a new area of consciousness. Each of your centuries upon this planet has carried with it its own psychic pool of consciousness to be drawn from, and has incorporated its own additions to your focus. It has progressed in the direction that you have intended it. Within this particular century of yours, you have moved very quickly in your understanding and your knowledge of elements around you. Now you move to your new century, which will incorporate a focus upon elements within you. You have explored outside of you. Now you will be exploring inside of you; and to your amazement, you will find that as far as your vision may carry you outside of yourself, the vastness of infinity within dwarfs without. This shall be your new quest. This is your shift.

You are what you would term to be the forerunners of this shift. You are preparing now, within physical focus. Some of you will remanifest after your shift has occurred, and within the memory of this motion of this focus, you will retain the information that you have remembered presently, that you may draw upon during your shift. Those of you which will choose to be not remanifesting will be helpful and instructive to those who choose to be manifest. (Turns to Vicki, grinning) Not all will be playing!

Within these pools of consciousness, you not only may draw upon your own facets and counterparts, but you may also draw upon other individuals within your particular century, and connect within your consciousness to information, to be aiding you within your understanding; this being also the reason, beyond personality aspects, why you may feel a draw, or a pull, or an identification with other individuals who have been manifest within this same century. Your intent, within this psychic pool within this century, has been advancement outside, objectively, in preparation for the new century and its shift. You have propelled yourselves quite far within your physical focus viewing object reality, but even your space programs and your physicists may only reach so far before they must turn inward for the rest of their answers. As I have spoken previously, space travel will not be around space. It will be through space, but you may not travel through space if you are only viewing objectively. Therefore, the turn has begun, from what is out to what is in.” [session 69, February 04, 1996]

ELIAS: “The notes not played in the symphony of consciousness:

I have expressed to you previously that you are the unexpressed notes within consciousness. In this concept, I express to you, that which you perceive to be ‘not’ is equally as important to that which you perceive ‘is’; for as I have expressed to you, without all of the notes not played, you would have no symphony. In this, there are what you would view to be many more notes unplayed than there are to be notes played. This serves as an analogy to probabilities and you; all of your channels, all of your alternate selves, all of your counterparts, your pools of consciousness, all of these elements that are not visible to you.

You, you may think of as very similar to your particles. Your scientists do not view particles. They view trace motions of particles. This is not to say that these trace motions are not reality, for they are. They are not merely symbols, although they are symbols, but they also hold their own integrity. You also are trace motions, of the movement of the focus of the self. Each of the focuses of essence are trace motions. Each holds its own identity, its own reality, its own integrity; but it is, in actuality, the same essentially as the trace motion of a particle. Essence is not viewed as a particle is unviewed, but you are aware of the existence of the particle, for you view its trace motion. You are aware of your focuses, for you view the trace motion of essence.

(Firmly) I wish to express to you this evening, make no mistake; you are reality. You create reality. The reality that you create is your focus. This is the reality that holds your attention. Therefore, within this individual focus, it is of supreme importance; for it is what you identify as you. Understand this clearly; for within our discussions of probabilities, probable selves, alternate focuses, and counterparts, you shall lean automatically to discounting the supreme importance of yourself.

You each hold a belief system, aligned with mass belief systems, of the duplicity of self, and also of the lack of importance of an individual focus. You may view, within your thoughts, that you are an important individual. You may express to each other that you believe you are worthy and important. In actuality, you prove out daily that you do not believe what you express. You wish to believe, but you hold belief systems, aligned with mass belief systems, which discount the individual. Therefore, it is quite easy for you, and also quite automatic for you, to be discounting of the importance of yourself when faced with what you view to be your ‘greater’ self. The word greater does not necessarily denote ‘better.’ It is more expansive, for you are more expansive than you realize.

You have been offered an exercise to be focusing upon this attention, to be focusing upon your clarity within this focus, in allowing yourselves the ability to hold greater clarity within your awareness of other focuses. (1) I have expressed to you, many times, that you are affecting of all of your focuses, and also, they are affecting of you; for you are them, although they are themselves, but they are also you.

Consciousness is much greater in the terms of expansiveness than you presently, not ever, but presently, possibly understand. There are infinite aspects of consciousness. There are infinite connections; but as you focus singularly, you do not recognize the expansiveness of consciousness, or your own being. I express to you this evening to be allowing yourselves to widen the belief system that you are ‘less,’ for you are not.

In this, we have spoken of children, and their awareness and their lack of separation. You, within your thought process and belief systems, view this to be ‘better.’ You view yourselves to move through physical focus ‘narrowing’ and becoming less; more separated and less efficient. You have designed physical focus the way it is. You have purposefully and artfully created a magnificent system of development physically. You have chosen a system within physical focus to hone in, more and more precisely, into physical experiences; this being the point!

It is not to be viewed as negative, that you create selectively. We have spoken of the purity of experience. You do not hold the purity of experience within physical focus if you remember what you know!

As you enter physical focus, you are what you would term to be still slightly defocused. You are moving from an area of non-physical consciousness into an area of physical manifestation. This action, within itself, incorporates transition; for each time that you move into another area of consciousness, you must engage a transitional action. All of these elements are familiar to you within non-physical, as you approach entry into physical manifestation.

As a very small one, you are very aware of non-physical elements. You are continuing within a transitional state, acclimating yourself into a new awareness of consciousness. In this, you acclimate yourselves to your environment, and to the motion of consciousness. This includes a time element. It also includes manipulation of energy differently, for you manipulate energy to be creating physically; just as when you view yourselves to engage the action of death, in your terms, you also move into an area of transition, for you are acclimating yourself to a new environment. Therefore, as you enter, you are aware of non-physical elements. Your reality is expressed more closely in terms of what you now view to be your dream state, for this is what is familiar to you. As you disengage physical focus, you bring with you what is familiar to you. You do not die and automatically move into a cloud-like area with no body, floating through nothingness, knowing all things! (Humorously)

CATHY: Why??? (Laughter)

ELIAS: You move with the awareness of the elements of consciousness that are familiar to you. Therefore, you move with the consciousness of physical body, and with the objective focus of consciousness.

As you enter physical focus, the action of creating is unfamiliar to you. Even though you have experienced physical focus within other manifestations, you divorce yourselves from these remembrances in allowing yourselves to focus singularly, from what you would term to be the beginning, upon the creation of this individual focus.

Also realize that the aspect of consciousness that enters any given focus is not ‘used.’ It is not remanifesting as a used product. It is a new creation. It is you; and although you view that you hold past and future focuses, and I express to you that you hold simultaneous focuses, as I have stated, they are you, but they are not you; for you are uniquely you, new and becoming, not already produced, not already used within another focus, not another version of you; for within your uniqueness, there is only one version of you.

Therefore, as you enter newly into your chosen manifestation, you enter bringing with you an awareness of memory. The memory that you hold is, in your terms, immediate. The immediate memory is non-physical; a realization of the extent of your creative abilities. As adults, you view within children this aspect as imagination. In actuality, this is a knowing of reality. Children experiment with consciousness and creativity, for they are learning how to manipulate energy within physical terms. They are learning the boundaries that they will be setting for themselves within physical focus. As they grow, they learn more efficiently how to set these boundaries. These are not negative terms. They are highly specialized movements of consciousness.

View within your [clarity] exercise the difficulty incorporated of separating your senses, and manipulating individually these senses while holding your focus. This is a highly specialized motion within manipulation of physical energy. In this same respect, you learn to specialize within physical focus. Therefore, you direct your attention more and more increasingly.

... Within your desire to be understanding the motion of transition away from physical focus, as you would term this, you reinforce your belief systems of discounting yourself, for you view your specialization as ‘bad.’ You wish to yourselves, and oft times to each other, that you would hold the awareness of a child. This wishing is discounting of your accomplishment in specialization of your focus.

Individuals within this company have chosen to be widening awareness within physical focus, in anticipation of transition. In this, information shall be offered and has been offered, for helpfulness; but just as the unplayed notes are essential to the melody of the symphony, so are all of the aspects of creation that you create essential to you.

These are important concepts for you to contemplate, for the introduction of counterparts will challenge the importance of your individual selves. There are many aspects to this subject of counterparts. They are not limited to your own essence. Counterparts intertwine throughout consciousness. There are no boundaries or barriers within the creation of counterparts. Therefore, there are many aspects and different actions of these elements of consciousness; this being the reason that I choose presently to preface our movement into this subject matter with information of the importance and validity of yourself. I do not express to you lightly that you are the center of the universe, for you are! Therefore, remember this as we move into areas that may create defocusing, within your awareness of you.

... Upset and ‘upendedness’ shall be the order of the day, with the incorporation of the information that shall be being delivered to you; for even within your new creation of your new religion of ‘metaphysics,’ you are taught or led to believe that this focus, or your lifetime, is a striving for a ‘better reality.’ There is an ultimate discounting of this reality that you create, and of your focus and your creativity.

You are told that you narrow yourselves; that you do not see all that you may see. I express these concepts to you also, but simultaneously I express to you that what you create is not insufficient, and it is no less reality than any other area of consciousness. You are told that this focus that you experience is an illusion. ‘This is your dream state, and your dreaming state is reality.’ This is another discounting of your creation of your self.

I shall not offer you information to be discounting of any of your creations. This is your reality. This is a reality. This is a manifestation of reality, and it is a perfect manifestation of reality. It is not flawed or errored. You are not flawed, and do not create errors. You do not make mistakes, for there are no mistakes. Therefore, many shall experience upendedness with this information. You have asked to challenge your established belief systems, and so you shall.

Your focus involves ultimate precision; an immaculate preciseness; an ultimate creativity. You create a selectivity intentionally. If you were not wishing to be selective, you would not choose to engage physical focus. There are, as has been expressed, essences choosing not to engage physical focus of any type, so to speak. There are essences choosing to be engaging other physical focuses quite foreign to what you view to be your physical focus, but you present have chosen. You have not been ‘thrust into!’ You have chosen, purposefully, this physical focus, this manifestation, and you create it perfectly for your own purposes, which is your experience.

Day one, chapter one, Elias: Your purpose is experience.” [session 126, September 29, 1996]

VICKI: “I have a question about intent, regarding our conversation in the break and the essence families. You refer to yourself as Sumafi, correct? (Elias nods) And we also know that these essence families apply to physical focus. So would it be correct to assume then that you are applying those terms to yourself in terms of intent?

ELIAS: Correct.

VICKI: And within other focuses there are other essence families ...

ELIAS: ... or pools of consciousness which align with each other. Correct. For your understanding, I express to be Sumafi, for within the pools of consciousness that I align with within the area of consciousness that is occupied, it would be comparable; for the intent is the same.

VICKI: Are you saying that the intent, within your alignment with different dimensional focuses, is the same?


VICKI: So, if you were talking to a roomful of little gray squashy guys, your intent would be the same. (Vic’s note: our term for ‘aliens.’)

ELIAS: Yes. We shall be also entering this area very soon, once again, of your extraterrestrials, in offering more information as to this ‘phenomenon.’

RETA: If you were to be very scientific and explore the universe, you would be able to find, just in the Milky Way alone, sixty-five planets like the Earth that would be homes to people, but in your instructions, that’s just another dimension that we may be focused in. Is that right?

ELIAS: Correct.

RETA: And I can be all over the universe ...

ELIAS: ... simultaneously.

RETA: Simultaneously! And like for instance, if I were interested in music and that was more or less the art that I chose, would I be doing that in all those dimensions? My intent would be art or music?

ELIAS: Not necessarily.

RETA: So then I would bring in other, I haven’t got it all straight yet! (Elias is chuckling) But you don’t think I’d be Sumari all the way in all those dimensions, mainly leaning that way?

ELIAS: No. These essence families, as has been stated, are relative to this dimension. They are relative to this area of consciousness.

RETA: So in those other places in the universe it would be other essence families, but I would be there.

ELIAS: Correct. The naming may be different. The intents shall be the same. The alignments shall be comparable. This is not to say that you shall interact with different essences within different dimensions, for you all occupy all of these dimensions. Therefore, you cross over. Therefore also, those that you intersect and interact with within one dimension, you also encounter within another dimension. There are slight alterations of the families or pools of consciousness, for there are alterations in the intents and the desires, as per the physical focuses.

NORM: And there’s uncountable numbers of these.

ELIAS: Correct.

NORM: And they are continually being created. True?

ELIAS: Correct.

NORM: We the essences are creating new universes.

ELIAS: So to speak.” [session 137, December 01, 1996]

WENDY: “I have a question. You mentioned the family of Sumafi?

ELIAS: Correct.

WENDY: Can you elaborate on that? What is that?

ELIAS: Within this dimension, within this particular physical focus, there are nine pools of consciousness that may be designated as essence families. These nine essence families are directing of all of your reality, and each individual essence is belonging to one of these nine essence families. Therefore, you and you and you and you and you all belong to an essence family within consciousness which is directing of this particular dimension. Within other dimensions, other pools of consciousness are directing of their reality, and they are different. In this, one essence family of this nine is that of Sumafi; this being the essence family holding the intent of teaching, and also holding and offering information within the least amount of distortion.

WENDY: And we are all of this family, or we are all of different families within this pool?

ELIAS: Presently, within this present forum, all of the individuals here belong to the essence family of Sumafi. Not all individuals belong to the essence family of Sumafi. Many individuals belong to all of the other essence families and engage this forum within audience also at times, although individuals focused presently of essences belonging to the family of Sumafi draw themselves to this forum more readily presently, in recognition in consciousness of what you in physical focus term to be ‘like-spirit’ ... although there are no spirits!

WENDY: No?? (Laughter)

ELIAS: (Grinning) Such disappointment, once again! I am so pleased with popping bubbles! (We’re all cracking up) Fun is very good! Be remembering of this! And if you are not accomplishing fun, disengage your actions!” [session 209, August 19, 1997]

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]
