And so it is, dear teachers, that we continue the loving… the flowing…
releasing… and growing energies of this day. We tried a little dance here,
a little waltz during your music. And, yes, indeed, Myriam and I did a wonderful
dance. We love when you open up and invite us into your space, when you now,
not only open your hearts, but allow your imagination to soar, piercing through
the veil, piercing through the dimensions, breaking the barriers, and breaking
The imagination sets you free. It gives you a whole new freedom in life. Not
everything that you imagine, that you want to play with, will you necessarily
want to bring back into human reality. Sometimes you may simply want to open
up and play. Other times you may want to bring in all the tools that you need,
that you desire in your human experience. But, the imagination truly sets you
When I spent my last lifetime on Earth in prison, it was the Archangel Michael
(Tobias saying Mike-el), Michael (Tobias now pronouncing this as Meek-eye-el),
as you would know, who helped me to understand the value of the imagination,
the freedom of going outside of the walls of my prison anytime I chose. It was
as real or more real than the reality within those walls. It gave me a new appreciation
for life, a new understanding of the nature of reality.
The mind has taken the imagination hostage for so many lifetimes here on Earth.
And, it is now time to set it free. You can't blame the mind, dear Shaumbra,
for you gave it the right to do that. You allowed it to take the imagination
into hostage… to trap it… imprison it… to hold back its wings.
Oh, indeed, indeed, the wings of angels are truly the imagination. It is time
to let it soar again without the control, without the judgment, of the mind.
The mind won't mind at all (some laughter). As we have said before, it has been
overtaxed, overburdened, overworked. That is why you are tired and fatigued.
It is time now to give wings to this gift that you have always had –
the imagination. Play with it. Find out how far it can truly go. Find out what
you can bring back into your reality, and how you can breathe life into your
imagination. If you find, as you will, that the mind tries to control all of
this, simply breathe and reassure your entire being that you choose life and
So, we are already watching you energetically open up, watching some of the
stumbling. But, you will become masters. You will become adepts at working with
this thing called imagination.
And, what will baffle you here, as you work with it, is that other people are
so imprisoned in their own worlds. You will want to share this thing. You will
want to show them how to spread their wings, and soar, and create their reality
any way they so choose, whether it is a reality here in this third dimension,
or any of the other.
Oh, dear teachers, this is where your true work begins. Today we have opened
a new doorway with you. As you know, the unfolding, the blossoming, will take
a bit of time. It will take some practice, some experimentation. If you take
a few wrong turns, don't worry about it. You are a self-adjusting, self-balancing
spiritual human being. You will set yourself back on the appropriate course.
Don’t be afraid to make some mistakes, for they are really not mistakes.
They are only exploring different directions.
The imagination is freedom of the soul. It has been put down by humanity for
ages and ages. It has been put down by governments, by teachers, by the churches…
for when a human imagines, they are truly free. When they imagine, they can
create anything. And, it wasn’t the agenda of so many of the leaders.
They wanted control. They wanted everything to have to come from the mind because
the mind is limited. It is a limited potential. But, now on this day we choose
– you choose – the freedom.
With that we would be delighted to answer your questions. But, you already
know how we are going to answer them (some laughter).
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 1 (from the Internet, read by Linda): Tobias, I understand
there are no wrong choices, and I have chosen to follow my heart and embrace
life each day as it unfolds before me. I can see the good that has come from
this, but I’m also haunted with the concern about the pain I have caused
the one I loved and shared my life with for so many years. Because I can’t
yet see the bigger picture, I end up questioning if my choice was truly for
the highest good of all concerned. Or have I simply been deluding myself? Thank
TOBIAS: Indeed… there are always agreements between two or more people,
not necessarily of the outcome, not necessarily of the details. But, there are
agreements to play in the same sandbox, if you would, to experiment.
Now, you carry much of the burden. And, we ask you to look at yourself through
the eyes of Spirit – which are the eyes of compassion – and to release
this burden you are carrying, because it will simply result in lifetimes of
karma, lifetimes of debt. And, it is time to release that.
Use your imagination. Go to your partner. Go to this one who has played such
a role in your life, and speak to them. Ask them about the pain. Ask them about
the love. Ask them for release. And, then ask yourself for release.
And, then if you so choose to bring that into reality, go to them face-to-face…
you see… and ask them once again. You will find that there is no bitterness
at the deeper inner levels, for it is something you both chose to play. You
know better now. You know a different way to play. You know a different way
to create, so fear not that you would repeat these patterns.
As we had talked about at the beginning of our discussion, it is time to open
all of those dark places within yourself… and let the winds… and
let the light… and let the love clear those Old Energies. Thank you.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 2 (a woman at the microphone): Hello, Tobias, could
you maybe coach those of us who are on antidepressants, because we feel too
much. And, it’s really difficult in the morning to wake up with the enthusiasm
that you are talking about. And, sleep becomes an important way to go to that
place of imagination that I think you are talking about.
TOBIAS: Indeed… using these psychotropic drugs, indeed, it will be difficult
to go into the imagination realms. Literally – for you personally –
you are more ready to release these than you think. There is a fear that if
you let these go that all sorts of difficult things will happen. But, you are
truly ready to release.
There are homeopathic remedies and natural remedies, as well as energetic remedies,
that are available right now in this room. There are practitioners here. And,
we ask for a showing of hands of those who have some understanding of how to
do this. And, you can look out into the room to the show of hands. Do not be
afraid to raise your hand. There are many of you who can help wean you from
It will take a coach. It will take a guide to help you. It will be difficult
right now if you try to will your way through it and struggle your way through
it. But, there are those who understand the New Energy counseling and New Energy
homeopathics who can help you right now today.
As you begin to release the dependence on these… and it can be very,
very… “addictive” is not the right word… dependent…
your mind becomes so very dependent on these. But, you will find that you can
release with the guidance of those who have shown themselves to you. It is time
for you. And, you are one who feels deeply, opens deeply. And, you have found
yourself – how to say – hitting some walls, and you shut down. But,
you have a natural gift and ability. It is time to fly once again. Thank you.
SHAUMBRA 2: Thank you.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 3 (from the Internet, read by Linda): Tobias, what is
the nature of your trip to Israel?
TOBIAS: Indeed… we love to take Cauldre and Linda all around the world.
I wish to return to this very sacred land, this land that has given birth to
so many religions, but has given birth to so much conflict as well.
You see… they are so locked into beliefs. And, BELIEFS ARE NOTHING OTHER
THAN LIMITED IMAGINATION. They are so locked into beliefs. We are going there.
We are going there to enjoy life. We are going there to embrace life. And, we
are going there to open some energies and see what happens.
We are going to go throw a hand grenade into the hornet’s nest, so to
speak (audience laughter). Cauldre does not think this is one bit funny (more
laughter). But, we are doing it energetically. And, the effects, the potential
of what we are doing there will not be felt for a little bit of time. But, there
are major shifts that are needed in this birthing place.
And, we are going there. We are going there with Myriam. We are going there
are with so many of the Crimson Council. We’re going there with Abraham.
We’re going there with David and Solomon. And, we're going there with
the humans who – how to say – will accompany us and help us to make
some very interesting shifts in this land. We are going there to bring back
something called compassion.
LINDA: A hand grenade in a hornet’s nest, huh?
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 3 (a woman at the microphone): Hello, Tobias. Recently
I completely turned my life upside down and moved to this area based on not
much more than an inner tugging that was undeniable. I’m wondering if
you can shed any light on what I’m supposed to do here… why I’m
TOBIAS: Indeed… it was time to turn your life upside down. More than
anything you had felt that you were in a rut, very frustrated – how to
say – going a bit out of your mind, not knowing which way to turn.
This area holds many things. For one, the dynamics of the energy in the area
– we do not like so much using terms such as “portals” –
but this is an energy center. You will find things accelerate very, very quickly
for you here to the degree that you may be getting up here in a few months and
asking us how to slow things down a bit for you (some laughter). It is also
– how to say – a place where you will make many associations with
Shaumbra, which will help you get your own balance back – your own type
of inner strength back – which is so needed at this point.
And, it is an area where there is the potential for you to – how to say
– absorb energies, and also to use your imagination to start doing a work
of your own that you would then bring to many, many others. We do not want to
define what this is, for it is for you to discover. But, allow yourself right
now to be in this area.
You are somewhat questioning. You are wondering what should be done. Simply,
simply allow yourself to call this home, and watch how all the dynamics start
changing for you. There is no thing you have to do here. There is not –
how to say – a mission that you have to go forward on. Call this place
home for a period of time. And, it will all start coming back.
SHAUMBRA 3: Thank you so much.
LINDA, starting to read the next question: Dear Tobias, with all the…
TOBIAS: We want to add one more comment here. There was no mistake in following
your feelings. There was no mistake. You are learning now how to follow the
SHAUMBRA 3: Thank you.
TOBIAS: Thank you.
QUESTIN FROM SHAUMBRA 4 (from the Internet, read by Linda): Dear Tobias, with
all the buzz of the new movie, “The Passion of Christ,” I’d
like to go to the true source. What does Yeshua think of it all? What does Yeshua
– and all of you on the other side of the veil – think of the movie?
TOBIAS: We think the timing was so very appropriate. It brings to the forefront
the whole issue of suffering. It brings to the forefront – how to say
– exactly the energetic reason why we are going to Israel. It is time
for a shift or – what you might call – a healing to take place.
But, in order for any healing to take, as you all have discovered, all of the
elements must come to the forefront. The elements of suffering… the elements
of bigotry… the elements of righteousness must all come up in order for
So, this movie was – how to say – very appropriate, very channeled,
and will bring up issues in many, many people. In a sense, it will cause more
of a division than before. It will cause many to take a very strong and Old
Energy stance. But, it will also help many, many others to release this Old
Energy of suffering, and conflict, and righteousness, and replace it with a
thing we have spoken of called compassion.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 5 (a woman at the microphone): Tobias, about six weeks
ago my good yellow labrador friend, Kona, became partially paralyzed on the
right side of her face. The vets we talked to labeled it “Horner’s
Syndrome,” and say the cause is unknown, but it will correct itself within
four months time. Can you please explain energetically what is going on? Thank
TOBIAS: It is responding to so many of the changes that you have gone through,
absorbing so many of the difficult energies, so that you didn't have to do it,
causing a paralysis in its own energies and holding a space for you. And, indeed,
within less than four months, it will be gone because you will be more balanced.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 6 (from the Internet, read by Linda): Dear Tobias, how
is it that you can change the Shoud because you’re concerned about Shaumbra’s
desire to live when, in fact, the Shoud is supposedly a reflection of the thoughts
and desires of Shaumbra? Wouldn’t the original plan in the last Shoud
have also been a reflection of the thoughts and desires of Shaumbra? And, since
this is my life, shouldn’t I be the one to say it is sacred or not, rather
than you continually attempting to convince me of it? Sorry, Tobias, but this
confused me a bit. I appreciate your work and also your answers. Thank you.
(some audience laughter)
TOBIAS: Indeed… we do collect – how to say – we collect,
and hold, and embrace all the energies of Shaumbra who are joining us in the
Now moment, not necessarily those who will read later. But, we collect the energies
in the Now moment of everyone who was gathered, or here in person, or online.
And, in a sense, you could say, we have a large discussion with all of you.
You will begin to be able to take part consciously in those discussions now
as you open your imagination. But, we discuss back and forth something very
specific. Everything that you are doing right now is laying the groundwork for
those who come after you, dear teacher. And, you say to yourself, “Where
I am right now in my understanding and evolution… what do I need to know,
so that this information can be imparted for others later?” You take a
look at all of the potentials and all of the energy, and say, “What I
need to know – and what they will need to know when they get to this point
before they launch into opening the imagination – is the value of life.”
In a sense, you could say, all of you are doing it for the others who come
after you. You are setting the curriculum and setting the energy. You are the
ones that say, “What they will need to know right now – after going
through a very challenging and difficult journey in arriving at this space –
is to embrace life before they go to the next step.” You are writing the
curriculum for the ones after you because you are the teachers. IT IS NOT ABOUT
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 7 (a man at the microphone): Tobias, just this last
week my girlfriend, Carrie… her sister died, Jill. And, it happened real
unexpectedly. And, it was very traumatic for her. I was wondering if you could
shed some New Energy wisdom on this, and let us know how Jill is doing?
TOBIAS: This is a very difficult area for so many to understand. But, the New
Energy wisdom is to have joy in this one’s parting. They had stayed longer
than they had ever planned to. It was their choice to leave and to leave so
it – how to say – did not cause great pain. But, we know it always
As you know, her energy has been very present over this short period of time
since her passing. She is here today indeed. And, she is so much there for all
of the family members. She will be out of touch for a period of – what
you would say – several months of time. Do not worry about this. Generally
after humans cross over – come back to our side – they go through
a rejuvenation process, a reintegration process, that would take several months
of human time… although from our perspective not long at all.
So, the greatest thing that you can do, the greatest wisdom, is to have joy
in her crossing over. It is appropriate. And, there are – how to say –
some reasons involving new family members coming in, being birthed in…
the reason why she left now so she can come back in very soon, very soon.
SHAUMBRA 7: Thank you.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 8 (from the Internet, read by Linda): Tobias, my actions
in the past have been in service to God. Having released both God and religion,
I have released my compelling reason to bring in New Energy. What’s the
big deal about New Energy… why bring it in? New Energy feels like just
another experience. Please be specific.
TOBIAS: This releasing that you speak of – releasing even the concept
of service – is highly honored. And, it is time… for so many of
these concepts are Old. Indeed, the whole issue of service, and the past lives
you and the others have had, of thinking you had to be in service to God…
God does not need service (audience laughter). Other humans may need servicing.
But, God does not need service. God does not even ask for that. So, it is good
that you released it.
So, you go through a period of – how to say – the void, the emptying
of all the Old passions from yourself. And, you feel, as you do now, somewhat
disillusioned, somewhat empty. But, as you take the simple breath, don’t
try to replace it with any new beliefs, any new limitations. Just take the breath,
and allow yourself simply to feel life. Don’t try to place any judgments
on it, or even any actions on it. Don’t try to make yourself to be anything.
Just allow yourself to be everything. A whole New Energy passion will move in,
and you will wonder why you ever asked this question in the first place.
LINDA: Last question should you so choose.
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 9 (a woman at the microphone): Good to see you again.
TOBIAS: Good to feel you (audience laughter).
SHAUMBRA 9 (laughing): Thank you. Cool! Do you have any comments about the
work of Dr. Stephanie Mines – who works down the road from here in Eldorado
Springs, just this side of Boulder – in using her Tara approach for the
resolution of shock and trauma in order to open us to our true creative essence
of compassion? Tara is another name for Quan Yin.
TOBIAS: Indeed – how to say – you energetically conveyed the significance
of this work and the importance of this work. We can simply confirm it here
And, it allows us to use this opportunity to, not only validate this work,
but to encourage all of you, Shaumbra, to begin the work of YOUR heart. Don't
wait for Spirit to write you a note to tell you what to do, but to follow your
own dreams. You have had them. You know that there are things that you would
love to create… to write… to manifest… programs for the healing
and for the rebalancing.
And, you think you don't have the training. You think you don't have the background
for it. But, dear friends, give yourself a chance. Stand up here, like the musician
today (referring to James Duel who sang his own compositions for the group for
the first time). Open up yourself.
It may be frightening at times. But, after getting a taste of it – of
being who you truly are, and sharing your energy – you will understand
now why we have been going through this with you for all of these years. You
will understand what it means to be a teacher. You will understand the answer
to the question, “What will you teach today? And, how will you teach it?”
We would be delighted to answer one more.
LINDA: I knew that.
TOBIAS: We knew that you knew that (much audience laughter).
QUESTION FROM SHAUMBRA 10 (a woman at the microphone): Thank you. I want to
quit smoking. And, years ago when I quit, it was a really bad experience. My
adrenal glands went out of control. And, it was scary, and I’m afraid
to go through the same thing again. I’ve sort of picked April 1 as the
target date. I want to know anything you can tell me about my chances for success,
and anything that might make it easier, and maybe what made it so hard in the
first place. Thanks.
TOBIAS: Indeed… what makes it so hard is not only the addictive qualities,
but also the emotional qualities of the smoking… the ability to –
how to say – hide yourself… and, more than anything else, the ability
to limit yourself. You do this smoking thing. And, then you buy into all of
the negativity, and you beat yourself into the ground. And, you don’t
allow yourself to be a Divine Human.
We don’t care if you are a Divine Human… or a divine smoking human
(some laughter). It doesn’t matter to us. But, you have accepted all of
this negative energy to allow yourself to think of yourself as something less
than God also. There are times, you know, even God would like to have a cigarette
In order to release this from you, understand it is a releasing of the fear
from deep within about who you truly are. So, we want you to imagine yourself
in your fullest glory, your fullest expression of life. We want you to imagine
yourself about who you truly are – a teacher, a teacher who can help others
go through energetic corridors, energetic corridors of their mind, of their
psyche. You are an expert at this. You have practiced it in other lifetimes.
You work on it even on our side of the veil. Funny that you should fall prey
to your own things that you teach, things you work with others on.
So, we want you to imagine yourself as a fully expressive, fully exposed human.
Don't worry about the whole smoking thing right now. Don’t force it or
struggle with it. It will win if you try to beat it that way.
Then, we want you to start breathing, taking conscious breaths. It doesn't
matter if you are doing it as you smoke or not. Take the conscious breath. Rediscover
what it is like to truly breathe. We even encourage you to work with some here
who are experts in breathing. There is breathing, and then there is breathing
So, we want you to re-establish what it is like to breathe again, to bring
your body back to life. We want you to use your body in physical ways with exercise.
Get your body rejuvenated once again. You hold the belief that smokers can't
be exercisers. And, there is no reason why they cannot be, other than this is
what society places. You have accepted all this.
And, the final thing, after you have gone through all of these other stages
– and don't use April 1 as a date for cutting off – terrible day!
(audience laughter regarding April 1 being April Fool’s Day) Don’t
use any prescribed date.
But, after you’ve learned to imagine yourself in your full divine glory…
after you’ve learned to breathe once again… and after you’ve
gotten your body back to exercising once again… then ask yourself what
do you choose to do with this? Ask your body what IT chooses to do. Ask your
body if it is ready to release this or not. You’ll be very surprised at
the answers you get.
And, this is for all of Shaumbra, including Cauldre, who also partakes in this
thing. Do not battle it. It will win. You are playing here in a field where
you are set up for failure. There is a different way to do it.
And, we ask others here who… smokers or nonsmokers… to help start
teaching the release, the release of smoking in a whole different way. It is
not through struggle and fighting – you will lose that way. It is not
through games such as these gums or these patches. Those are temporary.
But, it is through fully breathing. It is through fully living. It is through
exercising… bringing yourself back to life… and not buying into
all of the negativity associated with this. Dear friends, all the negative energies
associated with smoking have done more damage than the smoking itself. It is
time to release that. You may find that your body would simply like a few a
day, or maybe not want any at all. But, go through these other processes first.
Thank you for being the last question, for we wanted to have that discussion.
SHAUMBRA 10: Thank you.
TOBIAS: Indeed. Shaumbra, we ask you now – before we close out our gathering
– to once again spread your wings, open them up. Your imagination…
let your imagination soar. Take it out of the control of the mind. Give it to
the soul once again.
Allow yourself to imagine anything you choose… anything… anything
you want. Bring back the potentials that you choose into your life. If you choose…
bring them back into your life. Breathe them in. Breathe life into your imaginations,
your choices. And, then release them into this human dimension that you live
in. Give them life. Give them expression of their own. Don't try to control.
Don't try to dictate. Simply be the observer of new creation in New Energy.
And so it is!
Tobias of the Crimson Council is presented by Geoffrey Hoppe, aka "Cauldre,"
in Golden, Colorado. The story of Tobias, from the biblical Book of Tobit, can
be found on the Crimson Circle web site at www.crimsoncircle.com. The Tobias
Materials have been offered free of charge to lightworkers and Shaumbra around
the world since August 1999, the time when Tobias said humanity moved past the
potential of destruction and into the New Energy.
The Crimson Circle is a global network of human angels who are among the
first to transition into the New Energy. As they experience the joys and challenges
of the ascension status, they help other humans on their journeys through sharing,
caring and guiding. Over 50,000 visitors come to the Crimson Circle web site
each month to read the latest materials and discuss their own experiences.
The Crimson Circle meets monthly in the Denver, Colorado area where Tobias
presents the latest information through Geoffrey Hoppe. Tobias states that he
and the others of the celestial Crimson Council are actually channeling the
humans. According to Tobias, they are reading our energies and translating our
own information back to us so we can see it from the outside, while experiencing
it on the inside. The "Shoud" is the portion of the channeling where
Tobias steps aside and the energy of the humans is channeled directly by Geoffrey
Crimson Circle gatherings are open to the public. The Crimson Circle receives
its abundance through the open love and gifting of Shaumbra throughout the world.
The ultimate purpose of the Crimson Circle is to serve as human guides
and teachers to those walking the path of inner spiritual awakening. This is
not an evangelical mission. Rather, the inner light will guide people to your
doorstep for your compassion and care. You will know what to do and teach in
that moment, when the unique and precious human who is about to embark on the
journey of the Bridge of Swords comes to you.
If you are reading this and feel a sense of truth and connection, you are
indeed Shaumbra. You are a teacher and a human guide. Allow the seed of divinity
to blossom within you in this moment and for all times to come. You are never
alone, for there is family around the world and angels in the realms around
