sample of recent postings on the Crimson Circle Message
Board from Shaumbra around the world:
This is my very first post. I am getting near the end
of all the Shouds. I started reading them a year and
a half ago, right when I first found out about the CC
and Shaumbra... it's been an incredible year for me.
This weird thing that started happening to me right
about the time the first monthly meeting happened in
1999. It took me that long to be guided to this safe
energy... and now, I feel ready for what comes next.
Whatever it is I hope the hardest is behind and that
the teaching will soon begin. I am looking forward to
it in whichever form it will take. I am just so happy
and proud too to be part of this
I've been around the teachings almost since the start
and they/you all have been my family since then. Lately
there has been a huge shift in the feeling of Shaumbra.
The Q&A questions are showing me different and growing
people. There's a reality about our team now - it's
as if many more of us have stepped up to the plate and
are Walking The Talk. I Love That.
With Love and Big Heart Hugs
What Are We In For?
Sadly it's going to get worse, the hardest is to come.
Your dark side will come out, you will lose all your
current friends and family. You will become a freak
show. My goodness... go back while you can, run, run
for your life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just kidding of course!! Welcome to the real world!!!!
Shaumbra On Passion
To me, passion is this:
that comes to you as the next thing you want to experience.
If it is to experience a balanced relationship filled
with mutual respecting Love, then so it is! I think
people get hung up on Passion being something to "do"
long term or even that it is just "one thing you
were meant to do." Passion evolves and changes
depending on what you are focused on creating/experiencing
in the moment.
me, my passion in this now is to feel and experience
the process of manifesting beautiful works of art. The
ART is not my passion... the EXPERIENCE OF CREATING
IT is. The manifestation of the art is simply the result
of being in my passion. See? Beauty and Joy manifest
any time you are in Passion.
you are IN your passion (i.e. submersed in the experience
you choose to have in any given moment), all things
are given unto you. To me, this means all things that
you need to support you BEING IN PASSION will come to
you. Waiting for life to support you BEFORE you allow
yourself to be in your Passion defeats the whole purpose
and will never work.
this now moment, if each of us look at what is currently
before us in our lives (i.e. what we have already created
and are now in the process of experiencing), what stands
out to you as something RIGHT NOW that you choose to
experience? That gets your juices flowing? That bubbles
up in you with a sense of excitement and anticipation?
Even if it is to go into your kitchen and make yourself
a scrumptious triple dipped mint chocolate chip ice
cream cone? Choose that thing, COMMIT to it and put
ALL your focus into the experience of that thing...
and viola! You are in your Passion!
More on Passion
This morning while watering my flower garden I GOT that
it's not the Gardening that is My Passion - it's that
the Gardening connects me to My Passion.
And I realize that I have always thought that My Passion
was a thing/activity / cause – like, is My Passion
singing? Writing? Drawing? Saving the whales?
Sooo many years I have spent looking for My Passion.
And this morning I Got that My Passion is a feeling
inside me and anything & everything that I enjoy
doing connects me to My Passion.
Teaching by Living
I have learned that I am Shaumbra, part of CC. I was
one of the first into New Energy. I would now being
going crazy with worry, guilt, fear for others losing
homes, their disrupted lives, their confusion. But I
know what is happening and wait patiently for I know
it will be easier for them in the near future. These
losses of things were gained in great stress, competition,
duality and tired old fearful energy. They will go for
awhile.............. and in the departing will be cleansed
or purified or something.
was only a short time ago when I went thru losses. I
was so scared, angry and lonely. Oh, I remember those
days. Now things have come back to me in a new way.
The new is gentle and flowing, with wonderful manifestations
coming before I can even realize I wanted them or needed
them. More than I ever dreamed. I have no needs other
than the moment. Time as I knew it is also lost.
teach but do not realize I have taught until after the
lesson is given. I remember the faces while I talked.
The attentive looks toward me, then relief, gratitude
and sighs, breaths of relaxation. The old ways are gone
and its ok. But I remember. Oh, how I remember. The
lostness. The fear. The stepping out into the unknown.
Having to trust it because I created loss of everything
I had known, that was weighted down in old energy.
once worried about the time when I would teach. Ha,
ha – there was no need. Students come –
and they are ready. Only a human can teach like this.
I love myself. I love all of me.
Just a couple of hours ago we experienced an earthquake
in Southern California again. It was not right under
me, nor as big as the one in 1987, but significant.
What happens right after you literally right yourself,
is that most of us want to get outdoors. There you see
the neighbors who held the annoying party over the weekend,
the fool whose ride honks at 5 a.m. and wakes everyone
up, the skaters who drive home with rap music blaring,
the alcoholic next door, the kind granddaughter caring
for her grandmother and mother and kids....
They all look beautiful. They are all open whether they
are aware or not. (Thanks adrenal glands!) And everyone
says the same..."Are you all right? Are you okay?"
The young cholo ("tough guy") who wouldn't
speak to me answers, "Yeah, you?" and he sounds
like his child self.
There's a flicker of the idea that these may be the
folks you die with when the really big one hits; they
may be the people you rescue or who rescue you. That
hand that honks the horn might be the last one you hold.
I lingered outside, sitting on the front steps until
they disappeared one by one, back into their houses
and back into their 3D-ness.
It's over. The earthquake and the open faces, hearts,
hands. The rap music from the cars just feels like another
version of a blankie, a teddy bear. No big deal.

I learned this week:
- I am not my computer
- I am not my car
- just because old patterns repeat does not mean that
I have to react to them the same way
- that a painting created in the new energy by a friend
can be an anchor
- sometimes the things that you need are closer than
you can imagine
- sometimes the solution you need is more obvious than
you can imagine
- I am not my credit card debt
- compassion towards someone lost in their games can
be more healing to everyone than anger
- I have some amazing people in my life and some of
them even think I am amazing too
- that things from my childhood aren't as big as I remember
them to be
- my past is disappearing
- most of my 'misery' was related to the past
- regrets are only as painful as we choose them to be
- a tender word can be as difficult to accept as the
- young children seem to remember so much more than
we have forgotten
- it is ok to get messy and make “mistakes”
- it does not have to be perfect the first time through
- to not take for granted the ease with which some things
come to me
- I truly do want to experience a new energy sexual
- sometimes, something shows up in your life just to
prove that what you want actually does exist
- when you fully, truly, completely, utterly let go...
sometimes it DOES come back in a way you never expected.
- breathing with myself is something I just can't do
without... I miss me too much
- aspects sometimes have a funny way of coming home,
but they do
- I have as much time as I choose to have
- I don't have to do it all by myself – and certainly
not all at once
- there are actually many people who would love to co-create
- sometimes going slow means actually going at high
- I do need to rest from time to time
- there are so many great people around me!
- I live in paradise
- I DO trust myself
- experiencing the heartbeat of Shaumbra is way more
fun and inspiring than anything that I "should"
be getting done...
- there are never any "new" friends...
- just when you think it's in the bag, a new twist shows
up…another layer of trust to practice being who
you really are...
- when you set out to inspire others you yourself also
- looking for ways to win a new car can give you a gret
excuse to buy chocolate
