About Tobias

As the loving and compassionate entity who helped call Shaumbra together in this lifetime, it was beloved Tobias who guided the Crimson Circle for 10 years, beginning in August 1999.

An angelic being who has lived many lifetimes on Earth, Tobias is most noted for his lifetime as Tobit (also known as Tobias), one of the main characters in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. According to Tobias, his last lifetime on Earth ended in approximately 50 BCE, and he came back now in this modern time through the angelic realms for what he called the “biggest evolution of consciousness humanity has ever experienced.” His essence is available to lovingly assist those who are going through spiritual transformations, seeking to integrate their divinity with their humanity, and rediscovering the God within. Tobias has now entered into his next lifetime on Earth. His final message through Geoffrey Hoppe was delivered on July 19, 2009.

Talking with Tobias
By Geoffrey Hoppe

I had never heard of Tobias when he first appeared to me on an airline flight in 1997. It wasn’t until many months later that I learned who he was and where he came from.

In the early days of talking with Tobias, the communications were sometimes hazy. Just like a distant radio station, the messages were garbled or subject to interference from my intellect. One day I asked, “Tobias, who are you anyway?” His answer was simple, but it confused me. “You’ll find me in the Bible,” he said. Even with my limited knowledge of the Bible, I didn’t recall reading or hearing of Tobias.

I paged through the Old and New Testaments of Gideon’s Bibles in search of Tobias. No luck. I even asked a friend to do a search for Tobias on his laptop bible program. Still no luck. I was beginning to wonder about the existence of Tobias, and who this voice in my head really was.

At the height of my frustration, I finally discovered his story. Tobias forgot to mention that he “had” been in the Bible. The Book of Tobit is in the Apocrypha, or the “lost books” of the Bible, that were removed by the church in 1546 during the Council of Trent. I discovered later that some of the older Catholic bibles still contain the Book of Tobit. I was delighted to have found Tobias, and amused that I had the distinction of talking to someone who had been thrown out of the Bible.

Tobias is one of the main characters in the Book of Tobit, which relates some of the adventures experienced by Tobit, his son Tobias, and their extended family, as well as their interactions with Archangel Raphael.

After reading the apocryphal Book of Tobit, and later the novelized version in Frederick Buechner’s On the Road with the Archangel, I asked Tobias if the story was true. “Not really,” was his reply. “Parts of it actually occurred,” he continued, “but it is a parable more than anything. It is a story about fear... and overcoming fear.”

In a workshop several years later, Tobias decoded this story of fear, and told the audience that Archangel Raphael was the Angel of Fear. The energy of Archangel Raphael is available to all who are faced with fear and attempting to walk through it with the virtues of love, integrity and courage. Therefore it was most appropriate that Archangel Raphael was a key player in the Book of Tobit, a story of many people faced with inner and outer fears.

Tobias, the delightful and loving entity I converse with, said that he was Tobias Sr., or Tobit, and that he knew me in that lifetime as his son, the young Tobias.

Tobias said his last lifetime on Earth was shortly before the time of Jesus. He was a landowner and merchant at the time. A greedy neighbor who held the favor of local government officials had him thrown in prison, where he spent the rest of his life. According to Tobias, this was one of the most painful yet enlightening lifetimes for him. In prison he learned to release the human bars and walls that held his spirit hostage.

As Tobias tells the story, a beautiful bird would come to his prison cell window each morning to sing the praises of freedom and life. At first Tobias resented the bird, shooing it away so he could be in suffering by himself. One day, shortly before his death, the bird perched on his window to sing, and Tobias realized it was much more than a songbird. It was Archangel Michael coming to ask him to return to the “other side.” The Archangel told Tobias that great changes were coming to Earth. He said that wise and holy souls who had walked the human path were needed on the other side to assist the humans who stayed on Earth.

Answering the call of the Archangel Michael, Tobias chose to leave the human form and did not returned to Earth for more than 2200 years. The event Archangel Michael referred to was the awakening of the Christ consciousness within us, a process that started with Buddha, intensified with Jesus, and continued with Mohammed as well as many other prophets and holy ones.

Over the years of delivering his messages to Shaumbra, Tobias has always emphasized his love for all of humanity, and his eagerness to return and join us here on Earth. He has stated that this desire was not due to karma or need, but that he has been away so long and wanted to come back and truly enjoy all that life has to offer.

During his final years of speaking to Shaumbra, Tobias mentioned that he had already created what he called a “shell body,” a biological human being into which he would eventually embody his full angelic energy. He set the date for this embodiment as July 19, 2009 after his final message to Shaumbra at the Midsummer New Energy Conference in Breckenridge, Colorado.

After a deeply poignant weekend of channels by Tobias, Adamus Saint-Germain, Kuthumi, Kryon and others, Tobias gave his touching and tearful farewell message. He shared that his shell body, a boy he referred to as “Sam,” had been in an accident and was currently unconscious in a hospital. And it was during this time of openness that Tobias’ full energy of To Bi Wah was merging fully into Sam.

Tobias also shared that the character of Tobias, while it included that of To Bi Wah, was also made up of the energy of each individual Shaumbra as well. He related how “Tobias” was a character in a story that we all agreed to create long ago as a means of one day bringing Shaumbra back together at this incredible time of transformation. As the energy of To Bi Wah embodies within Sam, we are each invited to bring back our own “inner Tobias” as well, and become all that we truly are.

Perhaps the day will come when “Sam” will find his way to the Crimson Circle and reunite with his dearest friends, also known as Shaumbra. He will walk beside us as we all work to manifest the New Energy era on Earth.

Today, though Tobias has returned to Earth, there are many others in the angelic realms who continue to counsel and assist us. Tobias always said they cannot do it for us – we have to take responsibility for our own journey and divinity – but they are always available for guidance, friendship and support. In the classic words of Tobias, “You are never alone.”
