the Elias forum: Introduction










Who is Paul (Patel)?
by Ron Churchman

Ron Churchman. My name is Ron Churchman. I was introduced to Elias in May, 1995. I was asked if I’d like to attend a session, and out of curiosity I agreed. My intention was to attend one session to “check it out,” and that would be it. This was my first encounter with “channeling” or this type of information, except for a brief encounter with the Seth material in the 70’s. My main thought in the first session was that the message being delivered felt and sounded very “right” to me in spite of the illogical, irrational (according to my beliefs) way this information was being delivered. For some strange reason though, this information spoke directly to the logical, rational side of me, and I was almost instantly and totally fascinated. I have missed only a handful of sessions (out of nearly 300) since. The phenomenon of channeling in my opinion is secondary (although very intriguing) because the information, as opposed to some other “channeled” material that I’ve read since, stands quite well on its own.

I was first made aware of Paul (Patel) in the early sessions. He was introduced by Elias as an essence who is very dear to him, referring to him as “my beloved” or “my dear friend,” and that he had much information to deliver. He also said that he would most likely, if I so chose, deliver it through me. To tell you the truth, I never expected it to happen. I held this belief for nearly a year. As the sessions progressed over that year, I slowly resigned myself to the fact that this essence of Patel was indeed strongly connected to me in some way, and that it was quite probable that I would engage him in an energy exchange at some point.

The following is excerpted from Elias session 43, Sunday October 08, 1995:

RON: “I just have a question about something that Sophia [Guin] got on the Ouija board the other day, about the possibility of Paul (Patel) coming through me in six to eight days. I’d like to know how that could be possible given the state of mind that I’ve been in the last couple of weeks, which is totally involved in my work, and I’m still seeing nothing.

ELIAS: First of all, I will say to you, as you are already aware, all things are possible. Secondly, I will express to you that as your consciousness is diverted to such a degree, it is not worrying about your connection or blocking reception, for you are distracted, for this being a very opportune time for this incorporation. You are ready! As you have expressed to me, the inception is at hand. Paul (Patel) is waiting, but this is your choice and this is within your time of allowance. With your preoccupation of other focuses, you may not be so concentrated or self-conscious or pressured to be performing. Therefore, with this distraction, it may be easier for you to slide into this agreement. This is your choice, and one that is greatly respected. You will allow this agreement to proceed when you choose to allow this, and those waiting stand respectfully.”

On the evening of June 10th, 1996, I felt a definite pull to the keyboard. It was as though I’d been “grabbed by the scruff of the neck” and led to the computer. At this point I began to type, and what transpired was something that was totally foreign to me. These sessions are all done by means of “automatic writing” via computer keyboard. Although I’m generally aware of the words as I type them, I seldom understand the full context until I read it back later.

For the most part, Paul (Patel) delivers information that is not dissimilar to the information that Elias delivers. However, it seems to be of a more personal nature than the information offered by Elias. Most of the exchanges are either in response to specific questions asked, or are a complement to the information offered by Elias. Paul (Patel) refers to individuals in these sessions by their essence names. Michael is Mary, Lawrence is Vicki, Shynla is Cathy, and Olivia is Ron (me). These four names come up most often in these sessions as they are most closely associated with me and have asked the most questions.

Although I have been doing this for a while now, it’s still quite “new” to me and I’m still having some difficulty “letting myself go” enough to engage this phenomenon as often as I probably could. I’ve been assured by many folks that this information is quite valid for them and that I should continue. I find this an extremely interesting experience and do plan to continue. I have always been fond of interesting experiences!

I am very pleased to be involved in this phenomenon, and I am also grateful to Paul and Joanne for developing this site. I hope that you enjoy the information that has been presented here, and that it in some way helps you to understand that reality is a very interesting place to be.

Thanks, Ron
