“Communication from Essence and Aspects of Essence”

Participants: Mary (Michael) and a new participant, Ingrid (Allie).

Elias arrives at 12:31 PM. (Arrival time is 21 seconds.)

ELIAS: Good afternoon!

INGRID: Good afternoon, Elias. This is my first session...

ELIAS: Greetings!

INGRID: ...with you, and I have been reading already some sessions from you before. Just now before I called you, there was one question coming up, because I was reading a session you had with Castille and it is regarding emotions.

ELIAS: Very well.

INGRID: I have a little dog and when I pet her it gives me a very sweet feeling of happiness. Now, is this feeling a result of petting the dog or is this a communication of my subjective?

ELIAS: Both, for you are incorporating an action which is an objective expression in conjunction with the communication that you are expressing to yourself. The emotion is... (Beeping on the telephone line)

INGRID: Hello?


INGRID: Oh, there was some funny noise in the telephone. I am sorry, I thought I lost you.

ELIAS: Ha ha ha! The emotion produces a signal, which is the feeling that you experience. This signal identifies to you that you are offering yourself an emotional communication, a subjective communication to your objective awareness concerning what you are generating in that moment.

In this, you offer yourself the communication and the signal, which is the feeling, and you incorporate an action which moves in conjunction with the communication. The communication is an identification of what you are experiencing and what you are generating inwardly in the moment.

Therefore, as you generate this feeling or signal of contentment, the message that you are offering to yourself in the emotional communication is a validation to you that within that moment you are allowing yourself to be expressing what may be identified as the genuine expression of love. As I have defined previously, the actual expression of love may be identified as knowing and appreciation. In that moment, you choose to be objectifying an expression outwardly of this action of love, of knowing and appreciation, in an expression of physical contact with the creature. Are you understanding?

INGRID: Yes, I am understanding. So, there are no emotions which are not a communication? Any emotion is always a communication?

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.

INGRID: I have another question in regard to this. Since four years I have always a kind of presence which I feel is around me. Sometimes when I think something, then I have the feeling this presence thinks that this is funny and starts laughing about this. It expresses itself that I am laughing then, but I know very clearly that it’s not me who is laughing. I don’t know if you understand, if it makes sense to you.

ELIAS: Yes, I am understanding.

INGRID: My question now is, is this also a communication from myself, or is this a communication from this presence? It confuses me somehow, because I cannot distinguish these things.

ELIAS: The presence in actuality is you, but in a manner of speaking a larger sense of you than what you recognize as yourself in this one focus. Therefore, there is an aspect objectively of unfamiliarity in energy.

For you are familiar with the energy that you express in this focus as yourself, but as essence – which may be identified as MUCH greater than the expression of one attention, which is one manifestation or what you identify as yourself in this focus – the energy of the whole of essence may seem to you to be different than that which is expressed solely in this one focus, but it is you. It is merely the whole of you, which incorporates many more expressions of energy than may be expressed in merely this one focus.

INGRID: So this is part of essence, or is this something foreign? It is part of essence, you said?


INGRID: Is it maybe ... I don’t know, I hope you understand me. Is it another focus of myself in another dimension, or what is it?


INGRID: Is it something different?

ELIAS: In actuality, this is your communication in this focus with the whole of your essence.

INGRID: Because you see, it is sometimes not talking to me. I have it now since four years, and sometimes I feel it is smiling. In the beginning I started to ask it questions, but it does not answer questions. It’s nodding its head or it’s shaking its head and sometimes I felt even with this nodding of head and shaking of head he was lying to me. At least I was feeling it is like that, when I asked him questions. It made me so confused, this whole thing.

ELIAS: I am understanding. For in this, you are presenting to yourself a translation within your thought process. Therefore, you translate this energy as another entity that you are attempting to communicate with.

INGRID: Yes, that is what I do.

ELIAS: Now; in this, it is not another entity. It is the whole of you, and it matters not that you choose to be translating this action in a manner in which you view this communication, so to speak, as being that with another entity, for this is merely the manner in which you allow yourself a type of objective understanding of your interaction.

But in this, as it is an interaction that you are allowing between this focus of attention that you recognize as yourself and the whole of essence and different aspects of essence in different moments...

INGRID: What does this mean “different aspects of essence”?

ELIAS: There are many, many, many aspects of essence. You incorporate countless aspects of essence, and therefore you may be within a particular moment turning your attention to a specific other attention of essence or you may be generally moving your attention to the whole of your expression of essence.

Now; in this, as you experience this action that you translate as inquiring or incorporating questions in relation to your essence, it is quite understandable, especially within this time framework in the action of this shift, that you shall respond to yourself in this type of action that you incorporate as merely shaking or nodding of a head, for you hold the answers to your questions within you. Therefore, in not offering you what you identify as a solid response, this is an encouragement to you in this focus to turn your attention to yourself and explore and discover the answers within you in the action of becoming familiar with self and developing an intimacy in relationship with yourself. Are you understanding?

INGRID: Yes, I understand it. I try this, because this is actually a very, very deep desire. I have been in a spiritual group for more than 20 years. I had a spiritual Master, and somehow I see now that it was – probably I decided myself to be like that – but I took everything that he said as an absolute. You know what I mean?


INGRID: I took everything that he said as an absolute, and when I left this group ... actually, I had to leave this group. Because shortly before I left, I made a decision. I was reading a book from Kryon – I don’t know if this means something to you; this is a being which is channeling through someone – and somehow I came to the point that I wanted to live the purpose of my life no matter what it was, because I had the feeling I am somehow stuck there. So I wrote down that I really wanted to live the purpose of my life and also I wanted to help other people if I can. Also I wanted to ascend, because in this book it was written much about ascension. I wrote this down and I was reading this loud to the universe, and about two weeks later I was out of the group in a very dramatic way.

Because at the same time, I think two or three days after I have been reading this, I started to open myself for channeling and it was so interesting for me. This channeling part is no part of the program of this spiritual group; it is something which is completely avoided. Somehow, even if I knew all this, I just had to do it. It felt like part of myself or my guidance, however I should call it, as if I am pushed in this direction. At least it felt to me like that.

When I did it, opening up for channeling, I was in big, big trouble afterwards. I heard voices all the day. Whenever I woke up, I heard voices all the day, and I had no idea how to deal with all this kind of things. It was sometimes very threatening. These voices said that they are such and such, and in reality they were not such and such. They gave me all kind of instructions and things that I followed, because I was so unknowledgeable about these things. I had no idea how to deal with this, and it was a deep, deep trauma for me. It was so strong that I had to talk to the head of this spiritual group and tell them, and then I had to leave the group because they said it is not possible to stay there.

So I left this group, went to my family, and then I could not talk to my family about it, at least I thought I could not talk about it. So I left Germany, because I am German, and came to an island here in the Atlantic Ocean and started a complete new life. It was very, very hard for me in the beginning, because I did not know how to deal with all these kind of things.

I made again a few times an attempt with channeling, and every time it was a disaster. I started hearing voices again. I could feel, when I deal with this voices, when I go on this level of these voices, it felt like they took over my life. I don’t know if you understand what I mean? As if my identity is threatened by this, like you expressed it in one of your sessions. At least, that’s what I experienced. I felt as if I am not alone in my body anymore, and all these influences from different kinds of beings or whatever they were, it’s really threatening me. The only thing I could do then, I stopped this whole thing completely. So could you comment on that, please?

ELIAS: Very well. First of all, let me express to you a caution. I am understanding of your method in which you allowed yourself to move into new experiences within your direction in association with your desire to become intimately familiar with yourself and therefore become intimately familiar with essence and your movement, and in this you are moving quite in alignment with this shift in consciousness. Therefore, initially allow me to be encouraging to you in that movement and acknowledging of you in your allowance of that movement.

Now; let me also offer you some explanation concerning what you have generated, and a caution in the movement that you are creating now. The caution concerns incorporating information without allowing yourself to recognize that the information that you are connecting to, so to speak, is not absolute and also is influenced by beliefs.

INGRID: I did not get the last word. Is influenced by...?

ELIAS: Beliefs.

INGRID: Beliefs, yes, thank you.

ELIAS: Now; let me clarify and express to you that ALL information that you may present to yourself shall be filtered through your beliefs. But some information that you may offer to yourself may be quite in alignment with certain belief systems, which merely reinforces certain beliefs that you incorporate.

Now; let me also express to you that this is not bad, per se, but if you are not recognizing your own movement and the movement of this shift in consciousness, you may quite easily reinforce certain beliefs which may create greater challenge in movement into acceptance of beliefs. For as you reinforce certain beliefs, you also create a thickness in which you almost solidify those beliefs.

Now; first of all, I shall address to information that you have presented to yourself in relation to that which is being offered by this essence of Kryon. In this, be aware that the information is quite laced with reinforcement of existing mass belief systems.

Now; you have purposefully drawn yourself to this information to allow yourself an avenue of movement to be moving away from, in a manner of speaking, teachings or concepts and beliefs that you strongly associated with for many, many years, as you are aware. Therefore, it has been beneficial to you to be incorporating this information of that essence.

But there are pitfalls, so to speak, for what is familiar to you is to be incorporating information and, once assimilating that information, moving it into an association of absoluteness and as truth. And in actuality, as I have stated many times, actual truth of consciousness appears to you within your physical dimension to be insignificant. For you seek truth within beliefs, and beliefs are not expressions of truth.

Now; in this, you have incorporated this information from this other essence as a steppingstone, so to speak, which has served you quite beneficially in your movement into a new direction of exploration of self. Therefore, do not misunderstand. I am not discounting of the value of your allowance in drawing that information to yourself. I am merely cautioning you to be aware that that information does incorporate distortion.

Now; in this, as I have stated, you have incorporated this action as a steppingstone. In this, in this time framework that you are referring to, you have allowed yourself an opening to self as essence. As I have expressed to you, you have allowed an expression of communication and tapped into yourself as essence, which you have chosen to incorporate in an action of what is termed as channeling.

This action of channeling is precisely that. It is an allowance of an individual to channel the energy of their essence as a whole or of their essence in certain aspects, be it another focus within another dimension or another attention within a nonphysical area of consciousness or even another focus within the dimension that you presently occupy. It is an action of channeling the energy of an individual’s essence as a whole, or what you may figuratively term to be in part, from one area of consciousness into the awareness of this focus of attention that you recognize as yourself. In a manner of speaking, it is an action of funneling energy and information from one aspect or area of essence to another, allowing yourself an openness to the larger expression of yourself as essence.

But I may also acknowledge to you that if you are not understanding the action that you are incorporating objectively, this may be quite challenging and quite confusing and may even, in that confusion, spark expressions of fear.

INGRID: Yes, I never in my life have been experiencing so much fear as in the last four years.

ELIAS: Quite, for you are engaging what you perceive to be unknowns, experiences and expressions that are objectively quite unfamiliar to you, and [you] have not offered yourself adequate objective explanation concerning what you are engaging.

This, my friend, is one of the experiences that I speak with individuals concerning, in relation to the tremendous potential of experiencing trauma in the action of this shift in consciousness. For the action of this shift in consciousness is to be widening your awareness and moving into new expressions of reality, redefining your reality, and therefore altering your objective physical reality in this physical dimension. This is quite an unfamiliar action, and therefore there is tremendous potential for the experience of trauma in relation to this widening of awareness and opening to essence and the expression of it within your physical dimension.

Now; in this, recognize that in a manner of speaking your objective is to widen your awareness objectively. But this is not an expression of movement to a higher plane of consciousness, for there are no higher planes of consciousness. It is an opening of self, which is a natural expression of consciousness and essence. This is the action of consciousness and essence, an opening and continuous folding in of self as consciousness to be exploring and expanding in that action of becoming, which is the folding in and exploration of self. What you are incorporating now is a new action of discovery in that becoming, in association with this shift in consciousness.

Prior to the initiation of this shift in consciousness, you all within this physical dimension have been objectively exploring the physical aspects and manifestations and creations that you express within this physical dimension. You have, in a manner of speaking, exhausted that exploration. Therefore, you have collectively chosen to expand your exploration within this physical dimension and incorporate new movement, which allows for an awareness in an objective capacity of subjective expressions and of consciousness and its beingness, therefore incorporating a genuine intimacy and power and freedom within self.

And this incorporates an action of directing yourself and discontinuing the action of allowing other individuals or situations or circumstances or manifestations or even philosophies to dictate to you what your choices shall be or what your direction shall be, for you are moving into the action of acknowledgment of self and the recognition of your own abilities and the allowance of yourself to be directing of your choices yourself.

Now; in this, you have also continued your movement in presenting to yourself avenues which shall be helpful in facilitating your desire to be accomplishing this action of widening your awareness and becoming intimately familiar with yourself and your abilities. Therefore, in the steps that you have incorporated in your individual method, you have moved from directing your attention in incorporating information in relation to this other essence and have moved now in the direction of offering yourself more information to be validating of yourself, and have drawn yourself to this forum. Do you view how you have incrementally moved your attention to less and less distortion?

INGRID: Yes, but still, for example when I come home from work at lunchtime and I lie down and rest a little bit and I relax, I feel some voices coming through me. Actually, it’s two different energies, two children who are calling for their mother. One child is kind of happy and the other child is kind of sad. I don’t know what this is. Can you comment on that?

ELIAS: These are other focuses. You are allowing yourself to be incorporating the action of transition in this time framework and also movement in association with this shift in consciousness, which I am understanding at times may be quite confusing.

INGRID: (Laughing) Yes!

ELIAS: In this, I may suggest to you that if you are allowing yourself merely to relax and not to be forcing your energy or pushing against these experiences that you are allowing yourself, and [are] merely accepting what you are presenting to yourself, you may recognize that you shall incorporate much less anxiety and much less of an expression of fear, for you are merely presenting to yourself an objective recognition of different aspects of yourself.

All of the focuses of attention that you incorporate as essence are present within you. They merely appear to be separated from you by time and space, but in actuality they are all you, and therefore they are all present within you and in actuality occupy the same space and time as yourself. For time and space, in a manner of speaking, although they are reality, they are also an illusion for they are the presentment of perception.

Now; within your physical dimension they are quite real for your perception projects them as a reality, but in a manner of speaking they are quite an expression of projection. As I have expressed previously with other individuals, they are a type of projection which you within your recognition in this time framework may similarly identify as associated with holograms. In the moment that they are being projected they are quite real, but in association with consciousness and essence they are a projection. Therefore, they also incorporate a quality of illusion, and in this the illusion becomes quite solid, which creates an expression of separation, which prior to the movement of this shift in consciousness has been quite purposeful.

But as you move into objective insertion of this shift in consciousness in this present century, that separation is being disregarded, and you are allowing yourselves more of an openness and less of an expression of separation in the desire to be intimately familiar with yourselves as essence and therefore incorporate an objective recognition in genuineness of all of the abilities that you incorporate within your physical expressions.

In this, as you allow yourself to relax in these experiences, you shall also allow yourself to be understanding information that you are offering to yourself. It is not an accident that you are choosing to be viewing and experiencing other focuses of your essence, of yourself, and it is not an accident and is quite purposeful that you allow yourself to be opening within your awareness to different aspects of yourself as essence in many different capacities.

In the time frameworks in which you are presenting to yourself these voices that you may identify as particular individuals, you are allowing yourself to tap into other focuses of attention of yourself. In the time frameworks in which you are experiencing energy that you translate to yourself as another entity but you do not quite recognize that as a specific individual, you are correct, it is not a specific individual, it is not even an actual entity. It is another aspect of you as essence and a different quality of energy that you incorporate, and you are presenting that to yourself to allow yourself to become familiar with your own expressions of energy.

As you remind yourself that these are all aspects of yourself, you may allow yourself to relax and not incorporate fear, for you shall not be intrusive to yourself with these experiences. You are purposefully allowing these bleed-throughs, so to speak, for your desire is to be intimately recognizing all of your expressions as essence. For once you allow yourself to become familiar with the energies and once you allow yourself to relax in the incorporation of these voices or even visions, so to speak...

INGRID: Or even touches, sometimes.

ELIAS: Correct.

INGRID: Because I was lying on the couch, I was covered with a blanket and had my eyes closed relaxing, and suddenly I could feel that the blanket was moving. I was thinking it was the dog that came over to me on the couch, and then I opened my eyes and saw the dog in the other corner of the room. But I know completely, I was sure that there was a movement of the blanket, and at the same time some voice said to me, “I did not want to scare you,” and when I heard the voice then I even was scared. Before I was not so scared.

ELIAS: Correct, and these experiences are quite real...

INGRID: Yes, it was very real.

ELIAS: ...but they are not threatening, and therefore you may allow yourself to relax in these experiences, incorporating the knowledge that they are not threatening and they are not hurtful, and you are not experiencing lunacy.

INGRID: I am not?

ELIAS: No. You are merely allowing yourself to be opening and widening your awareness. It is merely your beliefs that express to you through your thought process that you are incorporating some expression of insanity, which you are not.

INGRID: Or schizophrenic or I don’t know. All kind of things go through my mind. (Elias laughs) It is much less now. It’s much less than it was before.

One question I have regarding the children I hear speaking. They always ask me, “Mammi, do you love me?” and I never know if I should answer that or should I just watch this. How should I behave in this situation?

ELIAS: It is your choice, and if you are so choosing you may incorporate experimentation and respond.

INGRID: I can?


INGRID: Because one time I think I was reading in one of the sessions where you said one should not be intrusive in these kind of things, and then I did not know how to interpret this exactly.

ELIAS: I am understanding. I have offered that information specifically to individuals that incorporated an action of attempting to alter the experiences of another focus of attention of their essence. In this, what occurs in that action – for you do hold the ability to be incorporating that action, for all of the focuses of essence are you, but each focus of attention incorporates free will and incorporates choice – and in the action of attempting to alter the choices of another aspect of yourself, you deny choice to that aspect.

Now; this in actuality may be viewed as a much more complicated subject matter than I am offering in information concerning yet. I may express to you that essences are not intrusive to each other, but there is the potential for an essence to be intrusive with self, as you are aware; for even within your physical expression you may recognize that you may be much more intrusive to yourself than you may be in any expression with another individual. In actuality, you may not be intrusive to another individual, for this would be an expression of creating another individual’s reality and you may not create another individual’s reality. Therefore, you may not be intrusive to another individual, but you may be to yourself.

At a point within a future time framework I shall be discussing this subject matter more fully and more explicitly with individuals, offering explanation of the manner in which this type of action may be incorporated and the reason that it is expressed to not be incorporating that type of action, for it is in actuality hurtful to yourself. But this is a different subject matter than what we are incorporating presently.

In this action that you are expressing, you shall not be intrusive to be interactive with these other focuses. Being interactive with other focuses is a temporary action, and it is not intrusive.

INGRID: Yes. Are these focuses of the timeframe of now?


INGRID: From before?


INGRID: How many focuses do I have in this time frame now?

ELIAS: In this present time framework, four.

INGRID: And Elias, am I in transition?


INGRID: Since when?

ELIAS: And offer to myself your impression.

INGRID: (Laughing) It could be since four years. I don’t know.

ELIAS: You have incorporated this transition prior to this time framework of four years. I may express to you that you on-setted this action of transition approximately in your time framework seven years, for you began...

INGRID: I have one more question, because our time is nearly over. You remember that I said to you that four years ago I wrote down all the things that I wanted, to ascend and all these kind of things? About six months ago I visited a friend who is a medium, and I was told that before there was an open channel in myself which avoided to get older, and now, I don’t know since when, this channel is closed and my soul has decided to grow old in the normal way and die in the normal way. It shocked me so much, because at that time it was before I have been reading your sessions. I could not understand how this is going to happen, because I feel somehow a separation between my soul and me. I could not understand how my soul can decide something without knowing me. You understand what I mean?

ELIAS: Yes, I am understanding you, and I may express to you that this is quite incorrect. You as the focus of attention choose the time framework and the method in which you shall disengage this physical focus. It is not decided for you by any other aspect of your essence or of consciousness.

INGRID: Why don’t I know about this? (Laughing)

ELIAS: For you are not choosing this action in this present now. You shall incorporate the awareness of that choice in the time framework in which you engage that choice. But within this present now, you are not incorporating that choice.

INGRID: Aha, and can this change again?

ELIAS: Yes. You choose in the moment. You create in the moment. And this is also the reason that I offer information to individuals in cautioning in relation to information which is offered concerning future probabilities. For you are quite naturally suggestible within your objective expression of your physical dimension, and in this, as you incorporate information concerning future events which are merely potentials – they are not absolutes and they are not actualized probabilities – in this, as you present this type of information to yourself, you incorporate a natural action of viewing that as an absolute and therefore move your choices in alignment with that information.

INGRID: Yes. It really shocked me when I heard that.

ELIAS: And this influences your choices.

INGRID: Before I came there I felt so good. I felt somehow in alignment with myself. When I have been told about these things, I was completely out of balance for quite a long time.

ELIAS: Recognize that any information that individuals offer to you specifically concerning future events are merely expressions of potential probabilities. They are not absolutes and they may be altered in any moment, for your choices are actualized and created in the moment, not within the future.

INGRID: I don’t know if you answer this kind of question, is it advisable to change my intention in this direction?

ELIAS: It matters not. I may express to you, what is advisable is to be holding your attention within the now and concerning yourself with your choices now.

INGRID: I think we have to stop because the time is over, and I don’t want to take overtime with Mary. I thank you so much for your answer.

ELIAS: Very well!

INGRID: You answered the first question. I have about ten sheets of paper with questions here (Elias grins), so I guess I have to call you soon again. (Laughing)

ELIAS: Very well, my friend, I shall be anticipating our next meeting.

INGRID: Thank you, thank you so much.

ELIAS: Within the interim I shall be offering my energy in encouragement to you.

INGRID: You see, sometimes I had the feeling that I could feel your energy, but as I always have this other presence I never can distinguish what is what. You understand what I mean?

ELIAS: Yes. Allow yourself to relax and to trust, and you shall be experiencing my energy.

INGRID: I thought I did several times, but I am never sure if it is really you.

ELIAS: Yes, you are correct...

INGRID: Yes. (Laughing)

ELIAS: ...I acknowledge to you. In this, I offer to you tremendous affection, my friend, and express to you, au revoir.

INGRID: Au revoir.

Elias departs at 1:32 PM.
