“A Course in Miracles”
“Creating a Belief in Abundance”
Participants: Mary (Michael), Julie (Jewell) and Walt (Quillett).
Elias arrives at 4:12 PM. (Arrival time is 22 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good afternoon.
JULIE:: Good afternoon, Elias.
JULIE:: My name is Julie, and this is my husband, Walt.
WALT:: Good afternoon, Elias.
ELIAS: Welcome to you both.
JULIE:: This is the first time we’ve ever talked to you, so we’re kind of new at this.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! And how shall we proceed?
JULIE:: I have a few questions and then I’ll let Walt ask a few. How’s that?
ELIAS: Very well.
JULIE:: I guess the first question I have is really for Walt. I’d like to know what Walt’s essence name and family is. (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Quillett, Q-U-I-L-L-E-T-T (KWIL let). Essence family, Sumafi; alignment, Gramada; orientation, common.
JULIE:: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are welcome.
JULIE:: Could you also tell me for my daughter, Claire? (Pause)
ELIAS: Essence name, Tautlyn, T-A-U-T-L-Y-N (TAUT lin). Essence family, Sumari; alignment, Zuli; orientation, common.
JULIE:: Thank you very much.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
JULIE:: Now I’d like to ask you also, I’ve been reading A Course in Miracles and I would like to ask you if you know about the origin of this text or if you have any familiarity with it. (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, I am aware of the energy expression of it. And what is the nature of your question in relation to this information?
JULIE:: Is it transmitted through the way we’re told, that it was written by Jesus Christ? Is that correct?
ELIAS: No. This is a translation.
JULIE:: So can you clarify exactly what essence originated it and why?
ELIAS: I may express to you that it is what you may term to be a work borne of information which has been channeled by the essences that transcribed it, in a manner of speaking. I may express to you, within this time framework in association with this shift in consciousness, this type of action occurs more and more frequently.
Now; it may be filtered through the beliefs of the individuals that are generating this action of channeling information, but this does not render the information entirely invalid. It merely expresses some distortions and translations as influenced by the beliefs of the individuals that are generating the action of this channeling of information.
Allow yourselves to recognize that there is a difference of action, not necessarily a difference of information, but a difference of action between that which you term to be channeling and that which I have expressed as an energy exchange. An energy exchange incorporates a cooperation and exchange of energy literally between two essences. The action of channeling is an action in which an individual within your physical dimension allows themselves to channel information from their own essence through layers of consciousness to be filtering into the objective awareness of the individual within physical focus.
Now; this does not invalidate the information which is being tapped into; they are merely different actions. But as each essence incorporates all of the same information, for you are all consciousness, it matters not that the information may be filtered through one essence or offered in an energy exchange between two essences.
JULIE:: So the essence of the person who wrote it is as enlightened as the essence of the focus that was called Jesus Christ, is that what you’re saying? The information is equally as valid, it’s just the details of exactly which essence it came from that’s confusing.
JULIE:: I see.
ELIAS: There are some aspects of this information which are strongly influenced by the individual’s beliefs, and this translates into the information which is being offered. But once again, this does not invalidate the information, for you all filter information through your beliefs.
JULIE:: Could I ask you also, I had an experience with a man who said that through hypnosis he could put me into a deep trance, which he did, and then actually go through my most recent past life, through the death experience into the after-life, as he called it, when I was not here on Earth in any particular focus. I had this experience where it seemed to me that through this hypnotic state I did go to another level and felt extremely energized and very – what would the word be? – free, I guess is the simple way of saying it. I’m wondering, would you validate that that was actually a level of my consciousness that is not here on the planet, or was that a physical place or a place on another energy level, or was it just all in the mind, or what was that? Do you know?
ELIAS: Yes. I may express to you, this is a valid and quite real experience.
Now; understand that your translation of this experience, once again, is influenced by your beliefs and associations with your beliefs, for in actuality there are no levels of consciousness, and the experience does not incorporate you as what you term to be a part of you that is not present in this physical manifestation, for you are essence and therefore all of you as essence is actually incorporated within this manifestation. This is not to say that you hold an objective awareness of all of these aspects of yourself, and in this type of relaxed state, which you may generate yourself also, you do allow yourself to move your attention.
Within this physical dimension you have quite efficiently designed a blueprint concerning how you shall physically manifest within a physical dimension incorporating solidity and time.
Now; in this, you have chosen in conjunction with the blueprint of this physical dimension to generate a strongly expressed belief in separation and singularity. This has allowed you throughout your time framework of this physical dimension a purity of experience in the exploration of generating a physical reality in tremendous diversity.
Now; in association with that belief of singularity and separation, you do not allow yourselves to view the vastness of yourselves, and you generate a certain expression of tension that directs your attention specifically and singularly to merely this one focus of attention. All of your focuses of attention are occurring simultaneously, be they within this physical dimension, nonphysical areas of consciousness, or any other physical dimension which is expressed.
Therefore if you allow yourself, figuratively speaking, to bypass the hold that you generate in relation to this singularity of attention, you allow your attention to move and recognize other aspects of yourself. This may be expressed in allowing yourself to experience or to view – for some individuals choose not to move into the expression of actually allowing themselves to experience another aspect of themselves, but merely to view other aspects of themselves – but in this, you may allow yourself to view or experience other-dimensional focuses or other focuses within other time frameworks in this physical dimension.
JULIE:: So it seems to me that by allowing myself to view or include in my consciousness that part of my essence that was so powerful and so unlimited to certain beliefs, that to be able to hold that in addition to my beliefs and my limits in this focus would be possibly what we would call a type of spiritual awakening, where all the great spiritual traditions stress that we are all one and that duality is just a perception.
Is it possible for focuses like us who are so focused on our lives and the details of them in the physical form to live daily with both awarenesses at the same time, or is there a reason why it’s better to just stay more limited in what we’re aware of at all times?
ELIAS: Ah, and I may express to you, my friend, this is the point of this shift in consciousness. Yes, it is quite possible, and beyond possible, probable that you shall incorporate what you view as both awarenesses, for this is what you are generating in creating this shift in consciousness.
This is the point, to be allowing yourselves the awareness of yourselves as essence in its vastness and to also continue within this physical dimension without the limitations that you have incorporated previously. The manner in which this is accomplished is to be recognizing your beliefs, acknowledging them and accepting them, and therefore offering yourself choice as you widen your awareness and become familiar with what you are as essence and what your abilities are as essence even within your physical dimension – for your abilities are unlimited.
In this, as you widen your awareness, you allow yourself to objectively generate an understanding and a knowing of HOW you create your reality in this physical dimension. And although you continue to incorporate beliefs, you neutralize the beliefs, for you allow yourselves to direct yourselves and choose that direction regardless of the expressions of your beliefs. Knowing that it matters not, you may be choosing to express a belief or you may be choosing to move around a belief in a manner of speaking, and the objective expression itself matters not. What holds significance is that you yourselves recognize that you incorporate the choice and therefore you are not subject to the expressions of beliefs.
JULIE:: Can I choose an example and see how this would apply?
ELIAS: You may.
JULIE:: Let’s say that I have a belief that I’m taking on faith that there is unlimited abundance, and I have access to unlimited abundance. Then let’s say in reality all I see is scarcity. I feel I don’t have enough of this, I don’t have enough of that, I need more of this. But at the same time, I’m holding in my awareness that I have the belief that there’s unlimited abundance. So is what you’re saying that it doesn’t really matter what I’m physically manifesting as long as I realize that there is abundance?
ELIAS: What I am expressing to you, in a manner of speaking, is the reverse of what you are expressing to myself.
Let us incorporate your example. I may express to you, you all within your physical dimension incorporate all beliefs. Therefore you do incorporate a belief that you view abundance as good, not necessarily that you incorporate a knowing that you may generate that. What you actually create is a projection of your perception, and your perception is quite influenced by your beliefs. Therefore, you may recognize your beliefs through what you generate, what you create, what you do. In this, if you view within your reality scarcity and not enough of what you want, you may also recognize that you hold a belief which is influencing of your perception – which creates your reality – concerning not holding the ability to generate or create abundance, and this is what you express outwardly.
Now; you may also incorporate a thought process in which you express to yourself that you want to be creating abundance and that you want to view abundance surrounding yourself and that you THINK you can create that. But the belief that you are aligning with is being expressed in what you generate, and the belief that is influencing is one that expresses that you do NOT incorporate the ability to create that abundance and that this is an aspect of your reality that you yourself do not create but must acquire.
JULIE:: Then how does one shift alignment with the thought that you think you believe but you obviously don’t since you’re not manifesting it? Is there a way to shift to the belief that you can create abundance?
ELIAS: Yes, and the manner in which you generate this quite simply is to move your attention in recognition of what you are actually generating, allow yourself to pay attention to your perception – for once again, your perception actually generates your physical reality – and as you allow your attention to move, as you recognize what you are actually creating and move your attention from your thought process, you may allow yourself in the now to pay attention to you, not to your thought processes.
Your thoughts do not generate your reality; they do not create your reality. Your thoughts are a mechanism that within this physical dimension you have purposefully and intentionally created to translate objectively communications and information that you offer to yourselves through other avenues. Thought itself is not a communication; it is a translating mechanism. Therefore, moving your attention from thought to what you are actually generating outwardly and [to your] perception allows you to thusly move your attention to the influencing beliefs in association with what you are generating.
Once you allow yourself to recognize what beliefs are influencing your perception in paying attention to what you are generating or what you are DOING, you may offer yourself choice and in that acknowledge yourself in trust of your abilities and acceptance of yourself, and thusly alter your perception and generate what you want.
JULIE:: I see that. So it’s not about what you’re thinking. It’s about your beliefs do not manifest as thought; they manifest as what you actually perceive.
JULIE:: It’s a result of what you believe, and that’s how you really know what you believe.
JULIE:: So if you can walk through the world and perceive all the abundance instead of perceiving all the scarcity, then you will know that you have a belief in abundance as opposed to scarcity, is that it in a condensed form?
JULIE:: Now, if my natural inclination is to walk through the world perceiving scarcity and I say, “Okay, from now on I’m going to focus on everything I see that is abundant,” is that a way of thought manipulating my belief, or is that a choice I’m making to shift my perception?
ELIAS: This is dependent upon you and your movement, for once again I shall reiterate, thought does not create reality. Therefore you may generate a thought and express to yourself, “I shall now walk through my world and perceive abundance,” and you may not necessarily generate that reality for you have not addressed to the belief. But as I have stated, it is dependent upon you and your recognition of choice.
You may allow yourself a beginning point of generating a thought that you wish to be paying attention to abundant expressions and therefore generate a choice to move your attention to notice expressions of abundance, and this may be influencing of your perception as you practice. But it is not the thought that is generating the action. It is your allowance of yourself to choose that.
JULIE:: I see. Thank you, Elias.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend.
JULIE:: I would like to let my husband have some time with you.
ELIAS: Very well.
JULIE:: I would just like to ask, in case he forgets to ask, he believes that in a prior focus he was manifesting as the musician Tchaikovsky. Is that something that you can validate or not?
ELIAS: Ah. I may express to you that this is not actually a focus of your partner, but your partner does incorporate a focus in that time framework of a dancer that expresses a tremendous affection and appreciation for that individual and the compositions that he generated.
JULIE:: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
WALT:: Good afternoon, Elias. This is Quillett, I guess. I’d like to expand on that past life during that same era. Could you verify that Tchaikovsky’s death, was it an accident or was it a suicide?
ELIAS: (Chuckles) I may express to you, my friend, there are no accidents. Ha ha ha! It was a choice.
WALT:: Proceeding to this focus, this lifetime, I believe there might be a fork in my career, and I was wondering if you can help shed some light on whether I should be staying put where I am and more or less weather out the storm, or should I just proceed looking?
ELIAS: And express to myself, first of all, what is your impression?
WALT:: My impression is to perhaps explore all the opportunities and wisely make a choice later. But my fear is that if I wait later then I might miss an opportunity.
ELIAS: Ah! Let me express to you my suggestion. It is not a question of what you should or should not create, or what direction you should or should not engage. But my suggestion to you is that you allow yourself an openness to the opportunities that you present to yourself, but also allow yourself to pay attention to your communications that you offer to yourself in intuition and not to be discounting of that. For if you are paying attention to you and listening to yourself, you shall not create what you view as a missed opportunity, but you shall also allow yourself a comfort in conjunction with your beliefs concerning security. Are you understanding?
WALT:: Yes, I understand. Another thing that’s been bugging me, and I guess my wife, is we were contemplating a move to another state, Arizona, specifically, and with that we’re trying to perhaps change our lifestyle, where we enjoy living the rest of our years on this earth plane and possibly undertaking a completely different change in career to take advantage of the new environment there.
ELIAS: And your question?
WALT:: The question is should we proceed in that opportunity in moving to the state and making complete career changes?
ELIAS: And I express to you, trust yourself and allow yourself permission to create what you want and your expression of preference. Allow yourself to acknowledge and be objectively aware of your preferences, for allowing yourself permission to choose in relation to your preferences generates an ease in your movement. Expressing to yourself the “shoulds” in relation to your beliefs generates more of a thickness within your movement.
Therefore, allow yourself to pay attention to what you genuinely want and to trust your ability – which you do incorporate – to express that and to create that without fear, which may be expressed merely in relation to the beliefs that suggest that you cannot create what you want. But you can.
WALT:: Okay – got it. (Elias laughs)
I was wondering if you could share with us the outlook of the economy, the United States economy and the world economy, and will there be further terrorist attacks that would disrupt the world economy?
ELIAS: Ah, I may express to you, this is a crystal ball question.
In this, let me express, probabilities are actualized in the moment, my friend. Choices are generated in the moment. Incorporate caution in relation to any individual or any essence that may express an identification in absolutes concerning what you view to be future events, for this negates choice and it also invalidates free will. It expresses a reinforcement of beliefs concerning fate and destiny and preordained actions and choices, and this is quite incorrect and contrary to the nature of consciousness. All probabilities are actualized in the moment and chosen in the moment.
Therefore I may express to you in this now, no, collectively you are not generating that action; and I may express to you, in this now, in potential, collectively you are not moving in the expression of generating that type of action futurely or in what you may view to be near future.
But the nature of choice may be viewed quite similarly to the movement of your whirlwinds or your tornadoes, for you may generate one choice within one moment and you may alter that choice dramatically within another moment. Each individual generates their own choices, and quite literally the choice of one individual within any one moment may be affecting of you all, for genuinely speaking, EVERY choice that each of you generates in EVERY moment ripples within consciousness and is affecting of every other essence, for beyond your perception of separation there is no separation.
Therefore I may express to you, my friend, do not concern yourself with what may be within the future, for this is tremendously limiting. What holds significance is what you allow yourself in choice now and in each moment of the now, for as you continue to turn your attention and project it outwardly to the future and what may be, you do not pay attention to what is and you limit your expression tremendously.
WALT:: Lovely. Thank you very much.
ELIAS: (Chuckles) You are quite welcome.
WALT:: Let’s see. Another question relating to the union of our marriage. We had twins that were born and one died shortly after birth, approximately four weeks after birth. The name that we gave her was Anna, and that was the sister of Claire. We were wondering, has she come back to the Earth plane again or is she waiting it out? What’s the status of her reincarnation?
ELIAS: Ah. Let me express to you, the subject of reincarnation or re-manifestation is directly associated with religious beliefs. In actuality, as I have stated, all of your manifestations, all of your focuses of attention, are manifest simultaneously. In this, each focus of attention is unique to itself and continues whether it chooses to be engaging a physical manifestation or not.
Now; therefore, it is not a question of the individual focus of attention re-manifesting, for the individual focus of attention is highly unique, and the mere concept of re-manifesting in another focus of attention as another individual discounts the uniqueness and the expression of each focus of attention.
Now; as one focus of attention chooses to be disengaging from this physical dimension, it continues its exploration of itself as essence and as consciousness. It merely chooses to be generating that action in a different manner. In actuality, that is what you generate within your physical dimension, merely an exploration through experience of yourselves as consciousness. For this is the action of all consciousness, to be continuously folding in upon itself and therefore expanding through its exploration of itself, in a manner of speaking – although consciousness is not an entity.
But in this, that attention continues in exploration in its choice. I may express to you that that particular focus of attention did not incorporate much action of transition, for it did not choose to be associating with beliefs in conjunction with this physical dimension to a great extent and therefore incorporated little action of shedding the beliefs and also little action, in your terms, in discontinuing the objective awareness which is expressed within your physical dimension, for small ones do not entirely associate with what you may view as the solidity or the singularity of objective awareness. Therefore in their disengagements there is a quite brief expression of transition, and subsequently they generate a swift movement into other explorations and choices.
If you are inquiring as to the status of that attention of that essence and your association within your objective physical translations of movements of whether it incorporates joyfulness or fun, yes. Is it physically manifest? No.
JULIE:: So the essence that was briefly what we call Anna is having fun, in our terms, but not on the Earth plane?
JULIE:: Elias, unfortunately we have to go, even though we would love to talk to you forever.
ELIAS: Very well.
JULIE:: Could I ask one more quick question?
ELIAS: You may.
JULIE:: Is this the final focus for me and my husband on the Earth plane, or do we have future or simultaneous focuses on this plane?
ELIAS: Ah. This in actuality is two questions, for as your focuses are all simultaneous, I may express to you, yes, you do each incorporate future focuses which are being expressed now. Are you each final focuses – what is your impression?
JULIE:: Yes, for myself.
WALT:: I haven’t even pondered that.
ELIAS: And I may express to you, pay attention to your individual knowings and expressions, for as you generate an impression that you are a final focus, you are communicating to yourself, and yes, you are correct. As for your partner, the reason that you do not generate this same impression and have not concerned yourself or incorporated a thought process concerning this question is that you are not.
JULIE:: Thank you so much, Elias. We’ve really enjoyed talking to you, and I hope to talk to you again soon.
ELIAS: Very well, and I shall be anticipating our next meeting. I offer to you both tremendous encouragement. Listen to yourselves and your intuition. Offer yourselves permission to create what you want. I also express to you each great affection. To you both, this day...
JULIE:: Thank you very much, Elias. Good-bye.
ELIAS: ...au revoir.
Elias departs at 5:10 PM.
