The New Energy Series: "SHOUD 1"
Questions and Answers

Presented at the Crimson Circle
August 2, 2003

TOBIAS: And so it is, dear friends, that we continue in the energy of this day. As you let go of things that have been holding you back, as you allow your divinity to play in this reality with you and participate with you in every moment, all of the dynamics of your life change. All of the energies around you change.

It has been difficult getting to this point, because you've been letting go of Old preconditioned ways. It has been rather frightening at times to let go of the way you think things should be.

That’s why we say that Superman died. He was an Old Energy concept about a type of human with superpowers, including super physical strength and super intelligence. None of those things are important in the New Energy. None of those things are even real in the New Energy. You've been struggling at this type of superhuman concept. Now you are learning that it is about being a Divine Human, not a superhuman. The attributes of a Divine Human are so different than what you thought. This is where so much of the struggle has been, so much of the struggle.

Now you are walking in the New Energy, learning a New way. It is easier for us to come through to you in these Shouds. It is easier for us to come through directly to you in every way. Understand that we are always there. We always want to talk to you. It is not reserved for a few. It is there for you. With the changes you have made, it is much easier.

Sometimes you struggle with what we should sound like, what we should look like and what our energy should feel like. Release those concepts as well. You will find us in a new place in your consciousness, in a place that you previously did not even know existed. We sit with you in the New place. Allow your consciousness to go there, and you will hear us so clearly.

You are God also, but yet you are so unique in your own right. You carry the sense of self-awareness and self-identity, something that Spirit from Home does not have. There is something else that makes you unique.

You see, God is a student and has always been a student. A teacher is one who has already been down the path. Spirit has never been down the path before. That is why you left Home, to go into new experiences, into new creation, and ultimately to create New Energy. Spirit has always been the student.

What sets you apart, Shaumbra, is that you are the student, and you are also the teacher. That is what makes you yet unique from the singular God of Home. You have learned so much on your journey. You have learned what it is like to go from the caterpillar to the butterfly, to go through the transformation, to complete the Circle, from leaving Home to creating New Energy.

You, God, are here at this time as a holder of energy, but also as a teacher for those who will come along. You are here to guide them when they come to you, asking for guidance. They will come in many different ways. Their requests will be heard by your ears, but they will also be felt in your heart. And you will know when it is time. You will even know what to say to them, because it will occur to you in that moment when you connect your energy with theirs.

You are here, dear God, to be the teacher for the others. They will need you. They will need your compassion. They will need to feel the joy of celebration of life from you. They will need to know that you are your own creator. They will need to know that you can change the illusion of reality at any time for yourself. Not for others, but for yourself.

Dear God, you are quite unique. You carry a different energy pattern than Spirit of Home. That Spirit is the student. It is time for you to be the teacher.

We know you still struggle with it and think that you do not have anything to teach, waiting to attend more classes (audience laughter), waiting to learn more, waiting until you think have it right. But if you are here, if you are connecting with these words in any way, it is because you have chosen to be a teacher, a teacher in a New way in a New Energy.

This is an important concept in the understanding that you are God also. So, you will continue to learn much as well. You will continue to have many, many new experiences. That part, the student part, certainly is not over. But it is time now to bring that into balance with the energy of the teacher.

With that we would be delighted to hear your questions.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 1: Tobias, can you please share your insights on how one maintains a balance between being present in the Now and goal setting and planning ahead?

TOBIAS: Indeed, the first thing to do is to breathe in, to be in the Now, and to understand that everything appropriate comes to you. In the society that you live in now, in the consciousness that you are in, yes, indeed there is a – what you call – goal setting or planning. You can do this in the New Energy way by doing two things. Remain in the Now but expand your Now to encompass the potentials of what may come. Expand your Now to include those. Bring those to you to the Now. Then be open to any changes that might come.

We understand there is planning because of the dualistic energies that you live in. There is planning that is required for some of the day-to-day things in your life, but always incorporate the energy of potential change in those. You as a group of humans came into this world at a time when this goal setting, this focus on goals, was so important. There was value in that at the time.

So many of you developed plans and goals because you wanted to accomplish much in this lifetime. Much of that centered around the release of Old ways, Old karma. But you can release that goal setting now, the way you did it before, for it does not serve you. Certainly, you have to be aware of what's out in front of you but bring that energy into the Now and allow it to change. Allow it to transmute all of the time. You will see the subtle but very important differences between just setting goals and planning, and allowing it to come into your Now, but to change.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 2: Tobias, I have a couple of questions in one. I’m going through releasing a lot of things in my life, letting go of the things that are no longer working. It’s actually put me in a place where I have kind of a clean slate. My questions are the difference between free will and our contracts that we have, and also in asking… sometimes I struggle with asking for something because I’ve read and heard that when you’re asking for something, you’re in the lack, plus you’re also the one to choose. Can you clarify?

TOBIAS: Indeed, we ask you now with us, with everyone in the room, to today a deep breath. (Pause while everyone in the room takes a deep breath.) Indeed. And one more. (another pause for another breath from the group) You see, you’re blocked here in the mind (pointing to Cauldre’s head). You are going through all of this, trying to figure out how it works. Just follow your heart. It is really that simple. You are not used to following your heart yet, so it may take a bit of practicing to do this. Follow your heart on these things. The answers are all there. The appropriate things will come to you, and you will know what to do with them in the Now. In the meantime, stop that struggling. It all comes in a divine way.

We have talked before about the difference between free will – the ability to make choices – and Divine Will. Divine Will is the acceptance of all things. It is changing your whole energetic makeup, so you have a built-in divine guidance system. It is you. It is yours. It does not come from us. When that trust between the human self and the divine self is established, you will see how things change. You do not need to worry so much about what you asked for, or the wording of how you ask for it.

Sometimes we are so amused by humans who think they didn't word something quite right. We’re not that stupid! (audience laughter) More than anything, your divinity is not that dense. Your divinity understands and wants to be part of your life. You do not need to define these things in detail. You don't need to worry about what you are asking for.

In a very simple sense, you could say, “Dear divinity within, come out and play. Guide me on my journey.” It is that simple. Then everything changes, all of the dynamics. You get off the road of duality. Everything comes to you. It is somewhat difficult to explain in human words because there is a tendency for it to go up into the intellect. That is why we asked you to take a breath, so you could feel it, so you could feel all the energy we delivered to you before our words were said. You have that divine guidance system. Trust it.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 3: Tobias, I volunteer for an agency that provides services to people who are HIV-positive. I’m drawn to be with the dying as they transition. Shall I stay with this agency? And am I going in the direction most needed?

TOBIAS: That is a very specific question for us to answer. Again, we would ask you to go into your heart. We look at the energies that surround this question. (pause) What you are doing is very beneficial, but you should definitely leave your options open. It is not about whether to stay with this agency or not. It is about the work that you are doing with the transition process, which is also one of our pet projects. The good that you are doing in that transition process is what's important. The structure of the agency is not. If you ever come to feel stifled by the structure, then it is time to go off on your own. Understand that you are learning so much right now at many different levels about the transition process. You are one who also holds great compassion, and this is such an important element in the type of work you are doing.

Stay open to the new levels of understanding that you are acquiring, and to – how to say – work, yes, from the other side that’s coming in from those who have transitioned, especially those in the last year who you have worked with. They are coming back to work with you from the other side. They have chosen not to reincarnate back to Earth right now. They are attracted to your work. Many of those who have transitioned in this last year are particularly available to you right now, particularly if you expand the nature of this work.

You are so honored for the work you. You work with compassion, without judgment, and understand that it is just a process that they are going through. We thank you.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 4: Hello, Tobias, I have a question that relates to experiences that I have been having in the last year and a half or two years. I made a shift to being guided more and more by the heart quite some time ago. And things were flowing along, and it would move me to different parts of the country and into different work. About a year and a half to two years ago, something shifted. It may be part of just tremendous releasing that is going on. But at this point in time, I don’t have any communication with my heart, so to speak. And there’s like no passion or energy that would move me in a direction. And it has gone on a long time, which is very awkward, odd, frustrating… what can I say. Any comments on that?

TOBIAS: Indeed. (audience laughter) One of the processes that we have seen Shaumbra go through is a cycle of activity followed by no activity, a burst of passion followed by the lack of passion. What we are noticing is somewhat typical because you are going through so many consciousness evolutions. There are times when your own divinity will shut you down, have you go into the quiet time. The path that you had been on is no longer the highest path, so you’ll go through a cycle of quiet or reserve.

However, this is also one of the times when you are actually in the closest connection with your divinity. When Spirit and you are in the most difficult and challenging situations, in the darkness, in the abyss, this is actually when Spirit is the closest. But you don't notice it because the compassion is so close. But the Old Energy human mind doesn't see it that way. It feels that there was a separation.

We ask you to be still with this. Be understanding of this. And know that your own Self – you, God – are creating whole New pathways now.

Now, you will be the one coming back in approximately four to five months, and calling on us, and saying, “Tobias, it is so crazy right now. Everything is moving so fast (audience laughter), and I'm filled with compassion, and I’m moving all over.” So, you see, it is just a cycle that you are going through. Be still with it and understand that your own divinity is planning a New course.

SHAUMBRA 4: Well, the difficult part is the mind wants to come in and fix it, and take charge, and plan it.

TOBIAS: Indeed.

SHAUMBRA 4: And as one’s bank account goes lower and lower, one’s mind REALLY wants to come in and fix it.

TOBIAS: Indeed. And in a sense, there is a blessing in that also, because it does cause the alarms to go off, and say to the Divine Self, “It is time to do something here.” So, they do work hand-in-hand together. As far as the chatter of the mind, we remind you again – it is so simple for all of you – the mind cannot be chattering when you are breathing.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 5 (from the Internet): Tobias, there’s a popular book out decoding the Bible that interprets the end of the world as occurring in 2006. What is this really about?

TOBIAS: The energy of this book is very accurate, to a degree. But it was written in the Old Energy. There are some misconceptions and some rather fearful things in here. What is accurate is the feeling that there will be a grand change in these coming three to four years. Some have predicted the quantum leap will be in 2012. In this decoding of the scriptures, it is felt that there would be a date in 2006. We are seeing that it will be in the later summer of 2007.

But it is a moving date. It is a moving Point of Separation. So do not hold to anything specific. It is not the end of the world. It is the beginning of a New Energy. It is a beginning of a whole New time. It is a beginning of a New consciousness on Earth.

Some humans will have a very difficult time with it. Some will rebel against it. Many will leave the planet. But you, Shaumbra, because of the work you have done, because of our gatherings, will understand that it is just an entirely New Energy you are going into. We remind you once again, please, do not buy into the dramas and the conspiracy theories of all this. It is simply the evolution of divine consciousness.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 6: Tobias, it’s so nice to be here with you in person. My question…

TOBIAS: It’s an illusion. (audience laughter)

SHAUMBRA 6: A good illusion! My question has been seeking independence since the Independence, Missouri workshop, because this is outside of the mass consciousness. Is menstruation obsolete?

TOBIAS: It is so engrained in the human biology that it will be a while. And specifically, this is one of the things we will talk about this year when we get involved in our medical and biological discussions. You will see it – how to say – you will see a dichotomy in this. You will see there are some women who go through a much, much more difficult time with this, and others who have a much easier time. At some point it is a situation or condition that can nearly vanish from the human biology. But in the lifetimes you are living now, it will certainly be part of it. There are things that can be done to lessen the effects of this. And we ask our studio audience to guess what the first and foremost thing is to do:


TOBIAS: Indeed. Breathing in the acceptance of the change that is going on within your biology will lessen the impact. There are certain herbs and even certain energy methods that – some are available now, others will be coming to the forefront soon – that will help this.

There are very significant implications of this change process that also has to do with a general – how to say – change in feminine energy, particularly in a very masculine environment you are living in. But for right, know that the effects can be lessened through the breathing. Eventually we feel that it will be out of the – how to say – the matrix – good word – of the human condition.

SHAUMBRA 6: The femininity will be… the creativity will express in a different way?

TOBIAS: Absolutely.

SHAUMBRA 6: Aaah… thank you!

TOBIAS: Well put!

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 7 (from the Internet): There is tremendous debate and polarization within the community and among the religious organizations in Canada regarding the proposal of the federal government to change the definition of marriage – which is currently the union of a man and a woman – and broaden it to include the gay community. Could you comment?

TOBIAS: Dear friends, this is one of the things that we chuckle about when we see the headlines in your newspapers, and we hear the news. There is so much progress that has been made in this area. You wonder sometimes about the effect of your work on Earth. There has been so much progress in this area in these past few years. Governments will be challenged to let go of their control over people. They are here to serve, and they have forgotten that. So, specifically whether they serve a gay couple, whether they serve whatever you call the other kind of couple, they are here to serve. This is also a reflection of the changes in your society and your consciousness. There is more and more acceptance of this. This is rapidly, rapidly breaking down barriers.

Those who have come in with a balanced male and female energy, those you call gay or homosexual, have done so much to change the overall balance on this planet of a very Old male energy. Things are changing fast, and indeed there are those who don't like it. When the consciousness and the government come to the point where they recognize the union of love of any two people, know at that point that you have made so much progress. Your work has had such an impact.

God loves any two people, and you are God also. It doesn't matter how that love is expressed, how it is created. These are Old, Old barriers that need to come down. And much progress is being made. We see within this land of Canada that they are making very fast progress. This will change the overall consciousness in the Western world very quickly, and at the root of so much – how to say – unbalanced male energy that is in the West right now. So, it would be good to see this changed.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 7: Hi, Tobias. I have three boys – 11, 12, and 17. Two have been labeled with dyslexia, and one with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Do you have any words of wisdom for them?

TOBIAS: Indeed, they come in certainly as – how to say – we don't like the label so much – but you’d call them “crystal children.” They come in with clear attributes, highly sensitive children, having a hard time maintaining a focus in an Old Energy world, and appropriately so. We have talked before about the New Energy schools, that would not grade a student or judge a student for this type of attribute, which in a sense, is a gift. They are also in a state where they are in an expanded consciousness and Expanded Now.

We encourage you as the human angel parent who chose to bring them in, to be their guide in their early years – to not look at this as any sort of deficit at all, but rather as a unique gift. We ask you to also get them into regular breathing. Talk to them in the loving way that you do and help them to understand that you can be expanded and also have a focus at the same time. One does not have to replace the other.

Understand also that they are highly, highly sensitive at their inner feeling level. The lack of specific focus on this reality is also, in a sense, a protection for them. This helps them to avoid things like serious medical problems within their being. Get them into a regimen of regular breathing and acceptance. Help them to understand the gifts that are incorporated in this. Do not try to deny these conditions, but rather to bring them into acceptance, and – how to say – enjoy the gifts with them.

SHAUMBRA 7: Thank you very much.

TOBIAS: We thank you!

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 8 (from the Internet): How does one leave mass consciousness behind, and how do you know if you are successful or not? I’m a bit unclear on this and not sure what exactly it means or how it will feel?

TOBIAS: Cauldre is joking with us and said that he will come up with a mass consciousness meter that… (audience laughter). Dear friends, simply the understanding of what mass consciousness is and making the choice that you are ready to leave, everything else sets up. Your divine nature feels and hears this. See, this as an example of creating with broad strokes. Then you begin the process of being released from mass consciousness. The experience is unique to everyone. It is not something that we could say there is a specific feeling or there is a specific color you will see or a specific event. It is simply saying, “I'm ready to release.”

Now, we turn this by saying that you would have never posed the question or heard the channel if you weren't ready to release mass consciousness. This was something you were ready to do. It is simply now crossing that point where you say, “I do choose to leave.” All the dynamics were being set up within you anyway. It is now just a matter of knowing that you left.

You will see subtle differences in your life at first and within time some rather major differences. The subtle differences that might surprise and shock you are sometimes a feeling of even more separation from friends, and family, and from humanity in general. But later on, that comes back around and transmutes into a very deep empathy and compassion because you have walked in that place.

Other little signs will be a feeling of disorientation because you have let go Old energy ties. You may feel that you are – how to say – sometimes losing your memory. Or that you are not highly focused. All of these things are part of that, but then it comes back where you can be grounded in the New Energy.

QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 9: I was wondering what you could tell us about the Adam Kadmon energy on the planet and how it’s manifesting.

TOBIAS: Indeed. The Adam energy was designed and produced through the Order of the Arc. It was one of the initial templates for the divine and the biology to come together on Earth. There was a long path that it took before coming to Earth – what you would call, in a way – a type of galactic journey.

The Adam Kadmon energy that has brought you to this point no longer serves you. You could say this is one of the attributes of mass consciousness. It was an energy template that so many of you held. You could look into the energy of the Seven Seals and see it clearly. We are seeing it clearly here, and it is difficult to describe in words. But it is woven in. It is something that is into the DNA of the biology as well.

It is time to let that energy go. There will be a New one appearing. We don't want to assign a name to it at this point. Humans love these names. We wanted to keep it an open architecture at this point, but you can honor the Adam Kadmon energy. Now, you can let it go, and it will be replaced by something very interesting. But it was simply a template for the Old. Thank you for this delightful question.


So, dear friends, we start our new series, the New Energy Series, with a reminder that you are God also. You always have been. You always will be. You are a unique God because of the experiences that you have gone through. But you are not separated from God. You are not less than God. You are not unworthy of the love of All That Is. You are God also.

From here you go on to be the teachers. From here you go on to help others understand. From here you go on to create the pathways of the New Energy. These are so important right now in these next four years ahead for the work that you do. It will help to determine the ease in which humanity and All That Is moves to the next phase. You have big work to do!

You are never alone. You have our love and our support all of the time.

And so it is.
