The Elias forum: ďExperience is your best teacher.Ē










<  appreciation game  >

DARYL: ď... partly in relationships but more in general, Iíve been trying to understand when I interact with somebodyís energy and I create from their blueprint.

Say that Iím doing that with somebody and I find that that person, to me, has a particular quality, and then perhaps some of my friends who also know that person will express that they find that that person has that quality, too. I guess what Iím wondering, although maybe itís both, does that indicate that that is a quality of that person and their energy, or do I create my friends seeing the person that way because thatís how I see them? Do you know what I mean?

ELIAS: I am aware.

DARYL: (Laughing) Is there a short answer to that question?

ELIAS: I may express to you, you are creating the expression and the quality, so to speak, in association with the energy that the other individual is projecting.

Now; the element in that that is directly associated with you and your reflection involves timing and who you choose to be interactive with in what particular timing, none of which is an accident.

In each moment that you interact with any other individual, you have chosen to specifically engage that particular individual in that moment, drawing the energy of that individual in the moment to yourself in their projection of energy, configuring it in association with their blueprint but in a reflection of yourself. This is the immaculateness of your abilities and the perfection and the preciseness of how you draw energy to yourselves continuously.

DARYL: So if Iím trying to reflect certain qualities or aspects of myself back to myself, for instance, my lack of acceptance of self, then Iím going to go out and interact with an individual and draw that person specifically because of qualities of their energy?

ELIAS: In that moment, yes, and how they shall reflect it to you.

DARYL: Because that would be the most effective reflection?

ELIAS: Correct. That may occur with an individual that you objectively know well and consider a friend, or it may occur in a moment with what you deem to be a stranger, or it may occur with an individual that is an acquaintance. It may occur in many different manners. But whatever manner you choose, recognize that you have created that purposefully and precisely, and it is not an accident.

DARYL: When I think about what Iíve created in past relationships and the whole idea of repeating it and stuff, sometimes I feel like if itís happening with one person, like it did recently, that if I go out and get involved with somebody else Iím just going to create the same thing again.

ELIAS: And that is your automatic association with that belief of repeating past experiences and focusing only upon the negative associations.

DARYL: But if Iím still in the same place, so to speak, even if I did start doing something with another person, I would very likely create the same thing, right?

ELIAS: Not necessarily. Remember, Ashrah [Daryl], it is not necessary for you to believe some expression for you to create it. Believing is not necessarily associated with beliefs. Therefore, regardless of whether you believe that you shall automatically generate another negative experience for you have not dismantled this shrine completely, it matters not.

You may generate quite a different expression dependent upon where your concentration is directed. If your concentration is directed to you in association with your own movement and your own allowances of yourself, being aware of not waiting and following the other individual, it may move from the influence of the repetition of negative experiences. Are you understanding?


ELIAS: Therefore, regardless of what you believe, you may create differently.

DARYL: That also has to do with trust in self...

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: ...and that that is possible.


DARYL: Iím also definitely having moments... It seems like this particular location, the place Iím in, which is on top of a hill, facilitates it. I really feel at some points like Iím creating not just this apartment but the entire East Bay in San Francisco, like I can feel it kind of flowing out of my perception, which is really powerful.

ELIAS: And perhaps you may generate your own individual game and express to yourself that it is good to be king! (Laughs with Daryl)

DARYL: That might be nice, because it is quite a different feeling than being the poor victim.

I just got that pain in my breast right now, while we were talking about it being good to be king. Can you tell me what I was supposed to pay attention to there?

ELIAS: Pay attention to the tension that you have been creating and the action of coughing. You allowed yourself a moment to incorporate an expression of fun and you immediately responded to yourself. You allowed yourself a moment of levity, and what did you create?

DARYL: Pain.

ELIAS: Correct.

DARYL: Iím a hard taskmaster.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) Throughout this conversation you have been generating a seriousness, and you offer yourself one moment of levity and you immediately respond to yourself. You deserve to allow yourself to play, Ashrah [Daryl].

DARYL: I think that has to do with what Patelís been trying to do with me, too. (Pause)

ELIAS: I shall express to you an exercise that I instruct you to incorporate each day for a period of two of your weeks. In this, you shall incorporate a game with yourself. In each of your days, you shall move outside of your dwelling and incorporate the purchase of one small item as a gift to yourself each day. It matters not what it is. It matters not how small it is or what its expense is. It may be any item, regardless of how little its value may be. But the one requirement associated with the item must be that you must incorporate a smile.

DARYL: Uh oh! Iím in trouble now!

ELIAS: (Laughs) We shall move you into appreciation yet, and that door shall open! Ha ha!

DARYL: Well, I guess Iíll have to report back to you in Fresno, because Iíll be seeing you in physical proximity there.

ELIAS: Very well! I shall be anticipating that.

DARYL: Thank you for your assistance with my seriousness.

ELIAS: You are welcome. I shall continue to offer energy to you in prodding you in your playfulness. (In mock seriousness) I am aware of the difficulty of the task, but I am prepared! (Laughs)

DARYL: Thatís good to know!

ELIAS: (Warmly) I express to you great affection, Ashrah [Daryl], as always, and tremendous lovingness and appreciation. Accept that from myself until you may accept it from yourself. In ABUNDANT fondness, au revoir.

DARYL: Au revoir.Ē [session 1442, September 24, 2003]
