"Beliefs About Appearance"
ELIAS: (Chuckles) It is your choice!
ESTER: Yes, I know! (Long pause) A subject I wanted to talk about was all
this stuff related to what I'm doing or what I'm having with sexuality, with
attractiveness, attraction, and all those beliefs and things about that, being
ELIAS: And what do you assess is your struggle in association with what you
find to be attractive in other individuals? (Very long pause)
ESTER: In a way, let's say I'm attracted to a specific physical appearance...
ELIAS: Very well.
ESTER: ...and I guess it's something I am not. Let's say what I consider
beautiful, I'm not that, and I guess I'm struggling with it because I almost
feel like I'm rejecting myself by finding somebody else beautiful and
ESTER: I guess part of what I'm talking about right now about me is I'm
uncomfortable how I look, because in my case I've gained weight, a little bit.
It makes me uncomfortable, and I guess I'm not accepting that because I can
still feel myself fighting it.
ELIAS: First of all, let me express to you that it is not bad or wrong to
prefer a particular type of appearance with yourself. I am aware that there
are beliefs concerning vanity that are perceived to be bad or that there are
automatic assessments that if an individual is too occupied with their physical
appearance being expressed in a particular manner that the individual is
perceived to be shallow, less spiritual and less of an intricate individual,
which is not necessarily true.
Each individual incorporates differences in their preferences concerning
physical appearance, and to prefer that you express your physical appearance in
a certain manner is not bad. But with yourself, and with many individuals,
what occurs many times is that the individual incorporates beliefs concerning
appearance that involve beliefs concerning yourself as an individual, your
value and your depth, and that if you are preferring that you express a
particular type of physical body appearance that that also suggests that you
are more shallow and concerning yourself with elements of your physical reality
that should not matter, and that regardless of your physical appearance, you
should be accepting of yourself in whatever manner you express your physical
appearance. That is a strongly expressed belief, but it is not true for that
does not allow for preferences. (20-second pause)
But in this, let me also express to you, what occurs is that these beliefs that
express if you are concerning yourself with physical appearance too much that
you are less spiritual and incorporate less depth as an individual, those are
the beliefs that are being expressed, and therefore, that is where your
concentration is. Therefore, you create in a manner to reflect those beliefs,
for you are not acknowledging your preference. You are expressing a judgment
with regard to your preference, and therefore, you create the expression of
ESTER: The problem right now is I'm also struggling about this thing with you,
because I don't want it to become like a teacher thing. I want it to be more
like a friendship, where we're relaxed and talk, which I think I'm doing, but I
feel myself pulling in and out of that.
ELIAS: I am understanding, for you view myself to be an authority figure.
That sets a barrier, which creates a hindrance in association with attempting
to generate friendship.
In this, regardless of whether you perceive myself to be an authority or not,
if you are allowing yourself to acknowledge yourself and express the
appreciation of yourself, you allow yourself to perceive yourself as a peer.
Regardless that you may continue to view myself as an authority, in the
acknowledgment and appreciation of yourself you may be interacting with me in
ELIAS: I am understanding. And you are not generating that comfort in this
now with myself, for you are discounting yourself.
ESTER: I'm discounting myself?
ELIAS: Yes. You are elevating me and discounting you, and you are also
generating a hesitation for you are incorporating judgments with yourself
concerning the subject that you wish to be discussing. You are projecting that
to myself in anticipation that I shall judge you also or that I shall
incorporate disappointment with you.
ESTER: Yes, and I'm incorporating embarrassment, too.
ELIAS: I am understanding.
ESTER: But what is embarrassment, the feeling of embarrassment?
ELIAS: That is a discounting of yourself and an expression that involves your
concern of the other individual's perception of you. You are already
discounting of yourself, and you also incorporate a concern that the other
individual that you are engaging and interacting with will also be discounting
of you and that they shall incorporate that perception also. In this, the
embarrassment is associated with the discomfort of exposing. The discomfort of
exposing is associated with your judgment of yourself, but it is also
associated with your perception of the other individual and desiring their
ESTER: Oh, back to the approval thing, huh? Yes, I've been watching these
last few hours, since late yesterday, unfamiliarity. I think I'm enjoying that
ELIAS: Exposure may be quite a challenging expression to move into.
Now; I shall, in this present now, express a suggestion, for I am quite aware
of your energy and how tightly you are holding to it and how you are unwilling
to be expressing that exposure in this now. In this present now, what you are
moving into quite quickly is overwhelming yourself.
Therefore, my suggestion is that we stop, and you allow yourself a time
framework to be evaluating this subject that you very much do wish to discuss
but you are not ready. In this, in this present now, it is not necessarily
beneficial to continue with this conversation. For I am aware that you are not
allowing my energy to penetrate, and therefore, whatever I offer to you is not
being received and therefore not necessarily a benefit.
My suggestion is that we discontinue this conversation in this now and to
continue in another time framework in which you may allow yourself to relax
more and to trust yourself. If you may not trust yourself, perhaps you can
allow yourself to move into a trust of me. I shall in the interim time
framework be offering my energy to you in helpfulness and in supportiveness
that you may allow yourself to trust that you may engage conversation with
myself in friendship and I shall not be expressing judgment of you. Are we
ESTER: (Emotionally) I'm having a hard time with that one, but... Wow.
ELIAS: It is not a discounting of you; it is an allowance of you. This now is
an opportunity for you to actually engage evaluating and appreciating yourself
and allowance of yourself - not to be judging yourself. And I shall engage
conversation with you quite soon, but with less tension. Agreed? (Pause)
ESTER: (Emotionally) I'm feeling very...
ELIAS: (Kindly) Be gentle with yourself, my friend, and accept my energy of
gentleness with you.
ESTER: Thank you. That's why I'm having a hard time (inaudible).
ELIAS: I offer to you tremendous love and a calm energy to be helpful and
encouraging of your own gentleness and calm within yourself. We shall engage
conversation again. In genuine friendship and in genuine love to you, I
express au revoir.

I like it. It seems ridiculous to me, absolutely ludicrous, that in our society it is conditioned as acceptable to celebrate, and encouraged to say regularly and openly, 'What a beautiful tree,' or 'look at that awesome tiger', or 'wow, what spectacular flowers', or 'you should have seen the amasing sunset I saw', or 'what a tenacious plant'. To appreciate nature and creation as a sign of growth. Yet, it is generally, seriously frowned upon and cringed at to say, 'Wow, how's this, look at me, my whatever is spectacular, I'm awesome, deluxe eh'!

Excellent post, jdiddy.
Interestingly, I have never read this in any book, of using past memories to create change. Is this something you came up with or did you find the idea elsewhere and built on it?
Could you elaborate further on how to use it?

May I suggest a book on this?
Jane Roberts' (Seth energy) book, 'The Nature of Personal Reality' has chapters on awakening/tapping into/changing/drawing in/re-creating by using your cellular memory which will always remain within, our computer mind command each cell which are individual but work as a team, therefore conforming with your command to tap into the archives of your cellular past. I've started telling mine to be a certain age (younger of course) and I expect it will and has. I notice it in my chin, jaw line, lifted cheeks. I believe it works, but, every age has it's beauty. I just prefer how I looked when I was in my late twenties, and if we can change it - why not?
