<  Session 263 (Private)  >

ďEssence is YOUĒ

Participants: Mary (Michael), Vicki (Lawrence), and Bobbi (Jale).

Elias arrives at 12:23 PM. (Time was fifteen seconds.)

ELIAS: Good afternoon! (Smiling)

BOBBI: Hello, Elias! Thank you for coming. I have several questions here about things that I have been investigating, and I want to check my results with you. The first thing that I have been thinking about is my husbandís essence name, and I have quite a list that Iím accumulating! So, Iíll try the first one out and you can tell me how Iím doing: Sheila.

ELIAS: Close!

BOBBI: Close? Okay. Well, then the others are totally wrong! What is it then?

ELIAS: (Chuckling) Sheena.

BOBBI: Sheena. Okay. Well, that was close! I have a bunch of other names; maybe theyíre focus names of his. James keeps coming up with him; also Alain, A-L-A-I-N. (Elias nods) Thatís correct? And this is from a while ago, either Nabet or Nashua, something like that. Is that one of his?

ELIAS: Nasha.

BOBBI: Nasha. Okay, good. Thank you. Also, I had come up with a name for my daughter Melissa. It was Noren, and I think you said it was a focus name. Is that correct, or is that her essence name?

ELIAS: Focus.

BOBBI: It was a focus. Is Jesse a focus of hers?

ELIAS: (Accessing) Yes.

BOBBI: It is. What is her essence name then?

ELIAS: (Accessing) Melissa.

VICKI: Melissa?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: I like that, and Mom gets a point! I named her! As far as her family alignment goes, Iím thinking maybe Ilda and Sumari?

ELIAS: (Accessing) Reverse.

BOBBI: Okay, great. Are she and I counterparts?

ELIAS: You have been previously, although the counterpart action has been completed.

BOBBI: Within this focus?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Are she and my sister counterparts? I often call her my sisterís name, and Iím thinking there must be some connection there.

ELIAS: No, but they have also shared focuses as siblings.

BOBBI: I have a feeling that probably Melissa and I have shared many focuses together. Thereís a great familiarity there between us.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Sheís also quite bossy, so Iím thinking maybe she was my mother at some point.

ELIAS: This in actuality is quite common. Essences many times choose to be exchanging roles with each other, and creating focuses of parent and child and reversing these roles.

BOBBI: Okay. Going back to Melissa, I had a dream of her wearing turquoise and the color seemed to be important. What was the turquoise indicating?

ELIAS: This imagery is offered to you in connection with another focus of hers which you also were interactive within, in Native American central area of your country.

BOBBI: Oh, okay. Iíve always used imagery, as a deepening technique in self-hypnosis, of walking down a step pyramid to a grassy green meadow. Would that be connecting with that focus, or is that just imagery to myself?

ELIAS: Yes. This would be a type of bleed-through that you utilize within THIS focus.

BOBBI: Neat! Okay. Chrisí family alignment; Iím going with Sumari and Gramalda.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, thanks. I had a brief dream of a young gypsy woman who died in childbirth; also during that same dream sequence, the name Borloh. I recognize that as an essence name connected with these sessions, although I donít think Iíve met the person. Was she involved? I have the feeling that I was there in some aspect. She was there as well?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Who was who?

ELIAS: Borloh was the gypsy.

BOBBI: She was. I was the child being born? No?

ELIAS: No. You were the mother.

BOBBI: I was the mother giving birth?


BOBBI: The mother of ... okay, I see!

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, I see. Alright. Neat! Now my friend Diane and I, I think, are counterparts. Is that correct?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. Now this is a bizarre question, but itís been bothering me. On our many outings we have seen Huell Howser a couple of times, and I thought this was really peculiar because the timing was just exact. So in investigating this, I got the image of the three of us in a circle swirling, and then more and more people were joining us in this, and finally I was viewing this big swirling mass of dark yellow and then orange and lighter brown outside, but Iím not sure what Iím viewing there.

ELIAS: Hmm! (Grinning) You are attempting to be moving within a similar action to Lawrence in viewing other dimensions ...

BOBBI: Oh! Thatís not what I expected at all!

ELIAS: ... and identifying certain individuals also that hold focuses within these other dimensions.

BOBBI: And thatís what the connection there would be?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. Not a counterpart thing or anything like that.


BOBBI: Okay. In the past several months, Iíve heard a loud ringing bell. Itís happened three times. It wakes me up. Thereís no phone ringing or anything else. I have no dream memory. What was going on in those cases?

ELIAS: Hmm. This is your own signal to yourself. Within your sleep state, at times you allow yourself movement subjectively into new areas that are unfamiliar to you within consciousness. Therefore, as you approach these areas of consciousness, you pull back and you awaken yourself with your own signal that shall attain your attention. You hold no memory of the event, for temporarily it is too unfamiliar to you. Therefore, you block the remembrance of the action. In this, you allow yourself to continue movement without fearfulness.

BOBBI: The movement continues subjectively?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: And would this be some of the other-dimensional activity?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Oh, okay. Alright. Well, I wonít worry about that any more! I have questions ... I have a lot of imagery of rain and flooding and running water in my dreams, and in one dream interpretation you said that was my imagery to myself of emotion. Is that consistent through most of my ... (Elias is nodding) Thatís my continuing imagery.

ELIAS: Correct. You may also view this imagery as a dream trigger. Therefore, as you allow yourself more information in movement within your dream state and also within other states, as you become more adept at manipulation within these states, you may use this imagery as your dream trigger.

BOBBI: Yeah, itís usually then that I find I go to my city. I donít know if itís THE city; itís MY city that I wind up in. The emotion then is not particularly any emotion, just emotion in general?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, thank you. I have a question about being a dispersed essence. You were saying that I would be more easily able to pick up information about other people?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Would that also work in reverse?

ELIAS: Not necessarily. Other individuals do not allow themselves the freedom within their connecting to other focuses and actions of other essences. Dispersed essences are more unusual than common, for they allow themselves this ability to be moving through other essences, and therefore also allowing themselves the ability to access experiences within other essences.

BOBBI: And this would be with the agreement of the other essences? This wouldnít be an intrusive action?

ELIAS: No. Essence does not view a mergence of another essence as intrusive. If one essence is not choosing to be allowing of this action, they shall automatically have this be known. Therefore, the automatic action of any other essence would be non-intrusive and would not be merging with that essence.

BOBBI: That mergence, is that something that I will eventually, hopefully as I widen, be able to do more consciously? Or is this just a subjective action that goes on?

ELIAS: You may, as you are offering yourself more information and practicing with your movement. You may allow yourself to be objectively aware of this action. You hold the ability.

BOBBI: Is this the same action as when you go to a psychic and they tell you things? Is that what they are doing? Are they generally dispersed essences?

ELIAS: No. All individuals hold the ability to be connecting in the manner that you view your psychics. It is merely a development of your inner senses, and trusting the viewing of one layer of consciousness and probabilities that you may connect to within an accessing of information with other individuals.

BOBBI: So itís a different action, basically?

ELIAS: Correct. These individuals merely have developed their inner senses in certain capacities, which you may also accomplish this if you are so choosing. This also would be part of the point of this shift, to be developing your inner senses and trusting of yourself more, and allowing yourself more information and more freedom of movement within your focus.

BOBBI: So it would be just a matter of practicing and trusting the information?

ELIAS: Correct, and noticing and not discounting what you are connecting to. Also, dispersed essences allow themselves within their focuses more openness to their empathic sense, which many times may be encouraging for you to be developing your other inner senses, for you hold a natural ability within the area of your empathic sense. This allows you to be connecting to other individuals objectively and accessing their experiences more easily.

BOBBI: Accessing their experiences in an objectively recognizable way?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. Itís more than just feelings. Generally I can pick up what people are kind of generally feeling.

ELIAS: You may develop this inner sense and you may allow yourself more of the experience. You may in actuality merge with another individual and experience all that they are experiencing. All individuals hold this ability, but dispersed essences allow themselves more of an ease within their expression of their empathic sense.

BOBBI: So I have a head start!

ELIAS: In a manner of speaking! (Grinning)

BOBBI: I would like to attempt something like that. Would that be just the ... I guess I donít know how to go about something like that! Just the intent of doing it?

ELIAS: You may practice with this sense, and as you notice that you are connecting with another individual in their feelings, you may allow yourself more of a movement into a mergence with them. Visualize yourself within their physical form. Relax your focus and allow the movement physically into another individual.

BOBBI: Okay. Well, I will attempt that!

ELIAS: You shall find yourself within a new experience of holding to your own identity, but occupying another individualís form and experiencing their experience. You may also, as I have offered previously, practice with this inner sense with objects if you are so choosing. You may practice with elements of nature, so to speak, or what you view as nature; a plant, a tree, or one of your creatures. This may seem a little safer and easier to begin with.

BOBBI: Probably. It would be a more limited experience than another person. Would that other person, if I attempted that, be aware?

ELIAS: Objectively, not necessarily.

BOBBI: Okay, thank you. I have a question about a physical symptom that Iíve been having in my left shoulder, which I connected with difficulties in my marriage. I think I really came on what was going on there a few weeks ago, and it was connected with my non-acceptance and non-understanding of my husbandís expressions many times. He can be a grouchy guy! (Elias chuckles) He was telling me something, he was complaining about something, and I kind of scolded him. I said, ďWeíre supposed to be having a good time!Ē And he turned to me with this huge grin and said, ďI AM having a good time! This is a great day!Ē And it suddenly hit me, he has a good time complaining! And at that point I thought, ďThatís what this is!Ē Because Iíve been trying to change that or ignore it or whatever, and after that I could work on just kind of dispersing the pain into other stuff.

ELIAS: Very good!

BOBBI: Every once in a while I get this little twinge, and I wonder now if this is some kind of an alarm, a non-acceptance alarm that I have going. Anyway, is that whatís going on there now?

ELIAS: Correct. This is worthy of acknowledgment, with your movement and your allowance of your understanding of yourself.

BOBBI: Thank you. Itís been something Iíve been wondering about and working on for a long time, and really, our relationship, I think, since then has been much better. He isnít so grumpy, or maybe it doesnít bother me as much!

ELIAS: And as you are accepting, you are also influencing of the individuals that you are accepting of.

BOBBI: Hmm. Like a belief, sort of.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Good! I have impressions of focuses that I would like to run by you which Iíve pretty much accepted, but Iíd like to have your ... not approval, your thumbs up!

ELIAS: Acknowledgment!

BOBBI: Yes! I had a funny dream where I took a wrong turn going home and I came upon this building or hotel being built; very lovely. It looked like it belonged in the woods. Someone told me there were several famous people that were going to be coming there and she said, ďThe cake lady is going to be there.Ē Am I the cake lady?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. Iíve been wondering as I view other focuses I come up with ... thereís the pilgrim guy, thereís the pirate guy, and I was wondering, ďWhat guy am I?Ē Okay. I have the impression of a nun, being a nun in a very silent order, very devout. It was a good life, very serene and fulfilled. (Elias nods) Also, a very sad young woman, in Paris probably, maybe the twenties or thirties.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Did she kill herself, or was thinking about it?

ELIAS: Not in the manner of what you view as an actual act of suicide, but essentially, yes, in allowing for the energy to merely cease.

BOBBI: Hmm. Was she Jewish, by the way?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. I also had a viewing of a woman dancing and spinning. She had a long red dress on, and long thick black hair. It looked like a desert area. I donít connect so well with that image as some of the others. Is that another focus of mine? (Pause)

ELIAS: Yes. This would be the connection of the mother of the gypsy.

BOBBI: Okay. Well, I know this guy is real; a man with large sandaled feet and very hairy legs. That I got a real sense of, and he was wearing kind of rough, dirty, simple clothes, holding a staff, with dark hair and a beard. He seemed very strong and very strong-willed; in ancient times. (Elias nods) Okay. Then there is a black woman whose hair is wrapped in a cloth. Sheís wearing very colorful clothing and living on an island, Iím thinking Jamaica, although I was getting Africa also.

ELIAS: (Accessing) Island that you now term to be Haiti.

BOBBI: Haiti. Okay. I guess the reason I question some of these is that they come so easily. In fact, I was wondering, ďGee, you know, Iím sure I had other focuses as a black person,Ē and poof! There she was! It seems almost too easy, some of these now ...

ELIAS: Ah! (Grinning) It is quite effortless to be accessing this information if you are allowing yourself!

BOBBI: This is part of the action of the shift.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: This wouldnít have been possible previously, or ...

ELIAS: It would be possible, but more difficult.

BOBBI: It would have been more work!

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. I have a question about Edward and Charles. Were they brothers or friends or what?

ELIAS: Friends.

BOBBI: And Iíve been trying to connect with my pirateís last name. Is it Stevens? Stevenson, maybe?

ELIAS: Stevenson.

BOBBI: Stevenson. Okay. Also, a new person at my work was coming around and being introduced, and I had this incredible sense of recognition. I thought, ďOh god! Itís great youíre here!Ē And then I realized, I donít know this guy! So Iíve been trying to figure out who he is, and figuring he probably was part of the group of us from pilgrim times. Was he my wife, or just a good friend?

ELIAS: (Accessing) A brother.

BOBBI: A brother. Okay. He was SO familiar! Iíve never had that impression with anyone else. I have a question about our impressions of other focuses. Are they colored by our belief systems or the other focusís belief systems? Are we getting a clear viewing?

ELIAS: It is dependent upon your action. If you are merely accessing and viewing another focus and not interactive with the other focus, you are merely viewing. Therefore, it is not a filtration through your belief systems. If you are attempting to be interactive with another focus, then you may be filtering through your own belief systems and influencing of the other focus. You may also interact with another focus in the area of merging with another focus, which individuals do connect with this action within your new game, and in this situation you shall be filtering through the other focusís belief systems, for you are merged with the other focus.

BOBBI: So you take on their belief systems?

ELIAS: Correct, for you are experiencing their experience. In a sense, you allow yourself to become the other focus temporarily.

BOBBI: So when I view these other focuses and I get an impression, a bit of personality, that would not be particularly through their belief systems. That would just be another part of the viewing.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, thank you. Did I ever have a focus named Jale?

ELIAS: (Accessing) One, within time period before your present accepted calendar.

BOBBI: Okay, and that is a feminine name?


BOBBI: Okay. Are there other focuses of Jale alive now?

ELIAS: (Accessing) Yes.

BOBBI: Close by?


BOBBI: No. Okay. I was feeling kind of proprietary there about it, so maybe thatís just as well! Back to my daughter and my husband, thereís a lot of animosity between them often. As I was wondering about this, I did get that I was a participant in that. They also share a lot of the same bothersome physical symptoms that medicine does not seem to be able to relieve them of. I was kind of wondering whatís going on there.

ELIAS: These individuals share continued counterpart action.

BOBBI: And would this be opposite counterpart action?

ELIAS: No, but not parallel.

BOBBI: Is that what causes the conflict? I mean, sometimes theyíre just ... they donít have to do anything and theyíre at each other!

ELIAS: This is influencing of this conflict that they engage with each other.

BOBBI: And that would just be related to this focus?


BOBBI: It would. Okay. Iíve tried to alleviate my part in it anyway, but that didnít seem to be altogether real successful! So they have their own thing going on, and I should just be accepting of that.

ELIAS: Correct. Be remembering the little sapling!

BOBBI: Okay. Itís very difficult with your children sometimes!

ELIAS: I am understanding. But this, be recognizing, is also very influenced by belief systems within your society of parents and children ... MOTHERS and children!

BOBBI: Thereís a lot of very protective belief systems going on!

ELIAS: Quite. You hold MANY belief systems in this area, and you hold many belief systems in the area of responsibility as the parent. Be remembering that the focus which enters as the child creates all of the choices save one, that the parent is in agreement to be participant to give birth; but this be your only choice in agreement.

BOBBI: Since the mother is the only actual physical participant, does that imply that the father doesnít have to be as much in agreement?

ELIAS: Within essence and within what you have created outside of your belief systems, the two individuals creating, so to speak, the new physical form are in agreement to be creating of this and participating in cooperation to each other, but the parent bearing the child is merely in agreement to give birth, but not necessarily any other action. It is the choice of the entering focus who they shall choose and what creations they shall create within the focus which is being created.

BOBBI: So theyíre choosing the situation?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, Iíll remember that. She asked for it! (Elias chuckles) About those bothersome physical symptoms, now those are two that I have tried to lend energy to, to alleviate some of their things that they keep complaining about, and in both cases I really feel like they donít want that. Would that be a correct assessment?

ELIAS: Correct. This is their creation. It is their choice.

BOBBI: Okay. Then that perception was correct, that they didnít want my help. (Elias nods) Okay. I do have a question about a dream interpretation, again with my husband. I asked for a dream clarifying my continuing feelings of irritation with him. This was before my whole shoulder episode. The dream was, he was cleaning roses with a toothbrush. It seemed stupid and unnecessary in my dream, and I was also over-dramatizing the situation to my daughter. And then I viewed two towers separated at great distance, which seems pretty obvious imagery there! But about the toothbrush cleaning the roses thing ...

ELIAS: This is merely your imagery to yourself of how you view your partner, that he is choosing to be creating of situations and events and circumstances that you view to be ridiculous.

BOBBI: Thatís the truth!

ELIAS: Therefore, you image this to yourself within an action that seems ludicrous, to be expressing to yourself a confirmation or validation subjectively to your objective observance.

BOBBI: Okay. So, it comes back to acceptance then, of his actions and expressions.

ELIAS: Correct, and also acceptance of yourself.

BOBBI: Acceptance of myself?

ELIAS: Be mindful always of acceptance of self. This also is influencing within your acceptance of another.

BOBBI: So would it be appropriate just to accept the feeling that heís very irritating? Just accept that in myself and not think, ďWell, I should be more accepting of what heís doing and then I wouldnít feel irritated?Ē

ELIAS: If you are accepting of yourself, you are also defusing many elements that are creating conflict within you. (Pause)

BOBBI: Okay. So acceptance of myself would automatically lead to feeling less irritation? Is that what youíre saying?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay, alright. Well, I think Iím working in that direction anyway. He has a lot of plumbing imagery going on in our house. His adventures in plumbing, is that imagery to himself?

ELIAS: It is also objective imagery reflected from feelings. (Pause) He engages certain feelings of inadequacy in some areas within himself, some concerning physical form and age. In this, he objectively is creating imagery that speaks to himself of his continued ability to function adequately, and that he continues to hold the strength and endurance as always. This is imaged within a fascination of pipes.

BOBBI: Yeah, he does have quite a fascination with pipes lately! Heís ripping out all the pipes in the house and the water is always off! Okay. So he just has to work through that, right?

ELIAS: Correct. It is temporary.

BOBBI: Okay. Eventually heíll run out of pipes! I have a question about essence, I guess. Is essence like a group of focuses accumulating experiences, or is there an overall essence personality which is expressed through focuses? I guess what Iím asking is, would my essence of Jale be a sum of her focuses, or is there a Jale whoís more than the sum of the focuses?

ELIAS: It is more than the sum of the focuses, but it IS the focuses.

BOBBI: There would not be a unifying personality separate from ... well, I donít mean separate. I understand focuses are essence.

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Maybe a unifying personality?

ELIAS: In these terms, a unifying TONE.

BOBBI: A unifying tone. Okay ... as separate from personality?

ELIAS: It is not separate, but it is a different aspect, for each focus holds personality and they may be different.

BOBBI: Thatís what I was wondering, if there was one unifying personality that would combine maybe all of those elements. Is there a Jale I could speak to?

ELIAS: Yourself! (Grinning)

BOBBI: Myself? I meant a more combined version of myself!

ELIAS: But you ARE the combined version!

BOBBI: Okay. I guess those belief systems keep getting in the way!

ELIAS: Essence is not a ďthingĒ outside of you. It IS you.

BOBBI: So when I have questions internally and I receive answers, those would be from myself, or another helpful essence, or ...?

ELIAS: From yourself, which you ARE essence. Individuals create many belief systems in this area. Therefore, it creates difficulty for your understanding. You create language as ďhigher self,Ē ďgreater self,Ē ďgod,Ē elements outside of yourself that may seem greater or larger, but you are all of these within yourself. If this were not so, you would not hold the ability to access other focuses, for they would be outside of you, but they are not!

BOBBI: True. (Pause) Okay. I guess lastly Iím wondering what my connections are to this group of people, and why did it take me so long to get here?

ELIAS: It did not take you ďso longĒ to arrive! You have arrived when you have chosen to arrive, when you have allowed yourself a readiness to be remembering and moving within this forum. Therefore, I express to you that your timing, so to speak, is perfect!

You draw yourself to this information within a recognition of its ringing true, as do the other individuals that draw themselves to this information also. Be remembering, as I have stated previously, you also manifest in groups. Therefore, as to your question of your connection to the individuals within this forum, you may assure yourself that you have held focuses with these individuals also.

BOBBI: I just havenít connected with them yet?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. This reminds me of one last quick question. As far as the name Borloh goes, is there any association there with my sister? For some reason I was thinking about her essence name and that maybe there was just an overlap there.

ELIAS: They hold a closeness in tone, although they are not of the same essence.

BOBBI: Theyíre not? What is my sisterís essence name, please?

ELIAS: Mae; M-A-E.

BOBBI: Okay, thank you. Is there anything else I should know?

ELIAS: You are accomplishing quite well. You are allowing yourself swift movement within this information and allowing your own abilities. You are connecting with self and focuses quite efficiently. Be practicing your empathic sense. Access information as to the exercise that I have previously expressed within this forum of practicing the empathic sense, and this may be helpful to you.

BOBBI: Okay. Youíve provided an exercise?

ELIAS: Correct, and you may be developing your abilities quite well if you are allowing yourself to be exercising this particular sense; and as you continue and accomplish within this area, you may also subsequently be developing your telepathic sense also!

BOBBI: Is that communicating and receiving both?

ELIAS: Both.

BOBBI: Iíve been practicing with my cats, but not with much success yet! Iíll keep at it.

ELIAS: Do not be discounting so easily of yourself!

BOBBI: Theyíre receiving, and they just donít care? They are cats, after all!

ELIAS: Their responsiveness may not be to your expectation, although within your practicing you may be accomplishing more successfully, so to speak, and you may be receiving your expectation!

BOBBI: Okay. I think I had something like that happen, but I wasnít sure. I was at work, and some guy was getting a Harley Davidson or something, and I swear, this guy standing next to me made a somewhat unkind remark and it popped into my head! Iím sure it wasnít my thoughts. Was I receiving his thoughts?

ELIAS: Correct.

BOBBI: Okay. I didnít want to embarrass him by asking because he said, ďNo, I donít want to go there.Ē So I thought, ďWell, Iím not going to embarrass him,Ē but Iíve been wondering about that. Interesting!

ELIAS: Continue with your practicing!

BOBBI: I will! It was funny!

ELIAS: This may also be helpful to you within your empathic sense, in accomplishing mergence with another individual and holding the ability to recognize your own thought process as opposed to the individual that you merge with.

BOBBI: A different feeling there. Thank you. Thank you very much.

ELIAS: You are welcome. I shall offer to you loving affection, and encouragement to continue with your experiments and investigations and your accomplishments.

BOBBI: Thank you very much, Elias!

ELIAS: To you this day, I bid you a very fond au revoir!

Elias departs at 1:18 PM.
