The New Energy Series:
SHOUD 12: "The Darkness is Your Divinity"

Comments from Geoffrey Hoppe regarding Shoud 12

Presented at the Midsummer New Energy Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico
July 18, 2004

GEOFF: I want to talk just for a moment, a brief moment here, because I don’t want too be heady or…

LINDA: Weepy?

GEOFF: … or tied up… or weepy about it.

LINDA: I hate it when you get weepy.

GEOFF: I just said I would mention a little bit about the channel from yesterday. It was a very interesting channel. I sat down, you know, and we did the breathing. And, actually we had a little miscue. The breathing was supposed to come right before the channel. So, I’m in my chair, doing the breathing along with Norma, and I'm really gone out there (some audience laughter). I mean, I am so far out there, I’m like ready to bring all of the energies in.

LINDA: We saw. We noticed.

GEOFF: I thought I said the camera is not supposed to be on me.

LINDA: That’s a good imitation of it (more laughter).

GEOFF: But, anyway, I’m going deep, and all of a sudden I hear Tobias come in. And, he says, “You’re on next.” And, I’m thinking, “Oh, that’s right. We forgot to do our little thing, you know, our little talk that we always do, you know, about where we’re going next… Shaumbra News.” And I thought, “Oh, my gosh, I’ve got to quickly transition back to me.”

So, we did our talk. And, then I sat down, and the music played. I got back into it. And, the moment Tobias came in, I knew something was different because he normally comes in, I would say, with a very jovial energy. He’s so happy to be here. And, you know, he gets very expressive. Well, he opened up yesterday, and it was different. And, he starts rolling into things right away. He doesn’t do the typical… typically he goes, you know, “glad to be here, here’s our guest.” He chats. He jokes a little bit. Usually, you know, it’s 30 minutes before he gets into the meat of the matter. He’s having so much fun just talking.

Well, he started going into it right away. And, within a couple of minutes I thought, “I wonder if I’ve got my right spot. I mean, I wonder if I’m connected because the things are very, very different here.” And, that self-doubt came over and right away Tobias said, “Just keep going.” And, I knew right away then that it wasn’t just Tobias. It was all of us, of course.

But, usually I’m, you know, channeling Tobias. But, I knew there were many other entities all coming through at the same time, including all of the energies of the guests that have been here this weekend. And, he started talking. And, I’m thinking, “This is so strange.” And, when he got to the point where he was going to say “the words,” I hear everything first before they come out of my mouth.

And, at that point I stopped Tobias. And, I said, “Those words are not going to come out of my mouth (audience laughter). You know I’ve been open and willing to do a lot of things in channel, but those are the words that are not going to come out of my mouth.” And, you know, I actually had flashes of “what would my mother think right now?” (more laughter)

So, we stopped, and we were having a little discussion. And, Tobias was kind of chuckling. He said, “I want to show you something,” as I was saying, “I cannot say those words. I cannot say ‘your divinity is your darkness.’” And, I’m thinking of all of the ramifications of everybody, you know, getting hold of this channel, saying “Oh, this is a cult. They’re devil worshipers. They’re… you know, it’s everything that we said they are, you know, the darkness.”

Anyway, so Tobias said, “Hang on a second. I want to show you something.” And, it was as if he opened these incredible doors, and this incredible light was emanating from behind. And, I could see the energies of Yeshua… and Quan Yin… and Tobias… and Kuthumi… and Mary… and Mary Magdalene… and this whole entourage. And, they were all just beaming, I mean, smiling and happy.

And, Tobias said, “You already have said the words. You’ve already agreed with all of us to be here representing all of Shaumbra to let that energy out.” And, the moment that Tobias said, “but you’ve already said the words,” they came pouring out of my mouth. And, it was incredible and scary at the same time.

Of course, for the rest of the channel, I was kind of blown away. I was still trying to keep my balance in things. But, I was also feeling the… probably the most incredible love I’ve ever felt in my whole life as Tobias was talking about these two energies. And, he didn't want to just address them as light and dark. He called them the AH and the OH, the two original sounds.

And, as he was talking about the energy of OH being so compassionate and having so much love that it took all of my junk… all of my self-doubts… all of my fears… all of my darknesses… all of my loathing and resentment… and anger… and hatred that I’d built up over the years… all the feelings of failures from lifetimes and times before Earth… and, I realized what that part of me had done, what that divine part had been holding. It was absolutely blowing me away personally that I was having a difficult time even doing the channel.

But, I think that actually helped the energy of the channel. I truly felt what Tobias was talking about. I have no idea how the words sounded out there. But, I truly felt the greatest love that could ever be… and not a love that comes from some far often and distant God… not a love that comes from another entity… but a love that comes from right in here that loves me so much that it would take all of the darkness and hold it until the time I was ready to come back and embody everything that I am.

And, I realized that it wasn’t just me. It was about all of us. I realized at that moment too that Tobias and the others have been waiting for a long time to bring that message forward, that they had to do a lot of other stuff to lead up to that. If Tobias had come in five years ago, and said, “Your darkness is your divinity,” that would have been my single channel that I’d ever done (audience laughter).

But, it’s a process that we’ve all been going through, coming to the point where we can finally say, “It is just me. It is the divine. It's been basically hiding underneath all that. It's been the gem in the center of all that stuff.” I finally understood what darkness is. I finally understood how the two work together. And, more than anything, I understood how everything wants to come back together. Energy seeks resolution.

And, I did a little thing with myself last night after I went back up to the room. I let the OH energy be released of carrying that burden. I didn’t need to have to have something hold my darkness any more, because it really isn’t darkness. It was just experience.

So, it was a phenomenal channel, and it took me a while to get back.

I have to say I was angry at Tobias.

LINDA: Really (audience laughter).

GEOFF: When that hit, I was angry. I actually felt tricked. I felt that he should have told me before hand, that he should have given me a heads-up about what was coming…

LINDA: He only wanted to argue with you once.

GEOFF: Right (lots of laughter from everyone). But, when… I will never, ever forget, as he said, “But let me show you something,” and he opened the doors, and I could see all of them, and it was actually all of Shaumbra energy. And, he said, “But you already have spoken the words.” I had already agreed to do it. So, I went back up to the room, and I cussed at him a few times (more laughter).

LINDA: I left the room.

GEOFF: Yeah, she did. Linda gave me a good hour to myself. But, anyway… but I also ever since have been experiencing the huge relief and release, a HUGE, HUGE… and I just have a feeling we’re going to put together… go to some incredible places. So, it is so cool !

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 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 Hoppe.

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 you.
