The Ascension Series
Lesson Three: "The Darkness Within Seeks Release"
Presented at the Crimson Circle
October 13, 2001
And so it is, dear friends, that we gather together with you in the sacred circle
on this day. Indeed, as your song said, we are old friends. (Tobias is referring
to the Simon and Garfunkle song, "Old Friends," that was played immediately
prior to the channel.) All of us, and all of you, go back so long ago.
Our journey together began at the "Wall of Fire." Our journey has
taken us many, many places, through dimensions that we could not possibly describe
on this day. Our journey together as friends, as angels, as gods has taken us
into the very creation of this universe. Our journeys together as friends brought
us to the point of the creation of the Order of the Arc. You, and I, Tobias,
were there together when that structure, that organization, was created. We
watched how energies that were in duality, that were at an impasse, and at times
even battling each other… we watched as those energies were collected together
for the good of all, and this created the Order of the Arc, the archangels.
Everyone of you can claim that you are part of this group. It is you, old friends,
who moved from this time of the Order of the Arc and came to Earth, You took
on human form and then experienced many, many lessons. We were old friends,
you and I, in the days of Alt. We were old friends together in the times that
followed. We were old friends in the creation of the new Earth, the new world.
(pausing) I get emotional at times of visiting with my old friends, each of
you. It has been so long since I have walked with you in human form. I chose
to remain here, on the other side in non-physical form, so that I could be with
you in a different way. I am here with the archangels, and with all of the others
who are guiding you and being with you and loving you on your journey. We know
your journey is difficult at times, but has such an impact on All That Is. It
has such an impact on God, on Spirit.
There is nothing but love for what you are doing in your lives. There should
not be one of you that thinks otherwise. You are on a blessed journey. We know
at times you feel you have taken the wrong turn or done the wrong thing, but
old friends, dear friends, do not look at it that way. Do not look at with judgment
or thinking that you did something wrong. It was not. You were just going to
different levels of trying to understand how things work.
Today, as we go into Lesson Three of the Ascension Series, we will talk about
why there is darkness at times. We will talk about what it represents and what
it means. But, as we are speaking of these things, remember to look within.
As Cauldre (Geoffrey Hoppe) mentioned before he sat down, if you are taken out
today, if you go into the "zone," allow this to happen because there
is much other energy coming in, much other energy.
Now, we have to stop at times. We smile. We are overwhelmed with emotion. As
we say, you are old friends. We know you so well. We have seen the changes that
you have gone through in these past four weeks and four days of time (since
September 11, 2001). We have seen how you have gone to some of the very deep,
fearful places within your being. We have seen how this fear has come up, how
the confusion and the potential for great imbalance has come in. And we have
seen Shaumbra – you – respond in the most loving, in the most hopeful,
and in the most joyful way.
As we look at you today, we see a few extra lines on your physical face, a few
more gray hairs that were not there when we got together last! We know it is
difficult. We know indeed that you have been wondering what you can do, how
you can be of service, how you can bring the light out from you at this time.
We know so many of you have felt helpless, that there was little you could do.
Many of you have felt fearful, not knowing how to handle these emotions within.
We, of course, have been here in this space now for many hours. And we heard
the talk earlier. And indeed we confirm for each of you at your heart level…
we confirm for Cauldre, for he often wanders… we confirm that it is time,
dear friends, to be in service. It is time to step forward to do what you came
here to do in this lifetime, as lightworkers and Shaumbra.
You have worked many, many lifetimes on developing and refining talents, capabilities,
and knowledges. You have spent your lifetimes since the times of Yeshua working
on specific areas of expertise. You have devoted lifetime after lifetime to
studying the inner energies and the outer energies in order to be here on Earth
at this time – at this appropriate time – to let those come forward.
You have studied for thousands of years and many, many lifetimes. Each of you
studied something unique and different, something personal. In those lifetimes,
if you remember now energetically, there were always the angels around you,
helping with this studying.
In between lifetimes you would also study these same capabilities and talents.
You would study them from the perspective of the other side of the veil. Then
you would go back to Earth for another lifetime. It was not so much about karma,
as you would like to believe. You came back to study how to use these new methods
of energy balancing and adjusting.
Each of you have been studying certain areas related to energy movement and
transmutation. Some have been working on new ways of sending vibrations through
music and tones. Others have been studying ways to open a heart that is closed.
Yet others have been working on the energetic qualities of money. These are
but a few examples of the types of things you have been researching in past
lives and between lives.
These past lifetimes, especially since the days of Yeshua, have been about testing
and refining these methods. Each of you, without exception, has been working
on a specific area. There is no doubt in our minds. We wish there wasn't in
And now, we look at you. We see that indeed you are ready! We see you are ready
to answer the knocking at your front door. But you are not quite so sure how
it will be brought there or what you will do once it arrives! This is part of
the reason for the Ascension Series. We will delve into much of that.
Since the very start, when Cauldre allowed us to communicate through him, we
have been talking about the changes of Earth. It is here, dear old friends.
It is here. The changes will come to the forefront now, and there will be many,
many changes in the next several years of your time. It will intensify. It will
get more difficult for the outside world, but not necessarily for you. Things
will be more unbalanced than before. It will be more unbalanced than before,
because as was discussed earlier on this day, the ascension process that is
taking place. You are leaving the old energy. You are going beyond. There is
a natural resistance to this. And as you make more progress, this resistance
Now, we will speak today of many things, but we want you to understand some
of the terminology. We are limited, in a sense, by your human languages. We
want you to understand first that there is a difference between "void"
and "creation." There is a difference also between "light"
and "dark." When you left home, to create the Second Creation, you
went into the void. This was not dark. This was not evil. It was nothing. It
was so "nothing" that not even darkness existed. You went into void,
into consciousness that had never been gone into before, in order to create
something new out of nothing.
There are some interesting physics involved here. How do you create something
out of nothing? That is what your whole journey has been about. The void is
not dark. It is not bad or evil. It is the void. By its very nature of being
nothing, when a force is applied within it, there will also be a resistance
to it. This is duality at the spiritual physics level. When you go into nothing
and interject an element into it, there will be an opposing force. This does
not make that opposing force bad or wrong. It simply is.
Now, today we will speak of darkness. Understand that this is not a bad thing.
We are not placing judgment on it, but it is a type of opposing force that is
part of the natural spiritual physics. When a group energy decides to move forward,
there is a natural response for another group to go backwards.
Now, we have been asked if there are dark forces on our side of the veil. It
is an interesting question, difficult to answer in human words, but we will
attempt to define this. We do not look at it with the type of judgment that
you do. But there are entities and even groups or families on our side of the
veil that are also resisting change. They are very comfortable with the power
that they have. They do not want to lose that power. They fear they will lose
their identity if they give up any of their power, so they tend to become isolated.
They tend to cluster together in packs. They tend to go off on their own. They
like to establish their own energetic empires. Now, these same beings at times
get tired of being with themselves, so they go out and try to take energy from
others. They try to steal energy.
On our side of the veil, there are levels that are not affected by the dark.
For instance, at the vibrational level of Yeshua. When these levels are attacked,
it simply passes through them. It is like water flowing in a river. It flows
in. It flows out. At levels on our side of the veil, the attacks by the dark
have no effect at all. There are those here who are in such a place of balance
and harmony that they cannot be affected by the others.
The darkness tends to feed on lower vibration areas. They tend to try to take
energy from entities that have an imbalance. This can create wars and conflict
– yes, even on our side of the veil. We tend to – how to say –
we use a word here to be funny, not to be judgmental… these are the "bottom
feeders." (audience laughter) They like to literally hang around at the
levels closer to Earth, not in human form but in energetic form. This is what
you call the "fourth dimension." This is somewhat of an imbalanced
and confused state. We do not like defining dimensions so much, but this is
a term you are familiar with. So, these bottom feeders on our side of the veil
will tend to hang out in these areas.
These bottom feeders try to use their energies to affect humans on Earth. They
look for imbalance. They look for low vibration. Indeed, if there is a human
with a great imbalance of the male-female, the bottom feeders will be drawn
to that. They will be drawn to this imbalanced person. And yes, in a way, they
can influence humans. They cannot make a person do something, and it is nearly
impossible for them to "take over" a person, even an imbalanced person.
But they can influence the thoughts of an imbalanced human, to a degree.
So, the darkness on this side of the veil is much like the darkness on Earth.
For instance, when a tree is imbalanced, the insects will come in to help clear
the imbalance. When a part of your being that is imbalanced, it will go into
disease. It is part of the natural clearing process. Energetic imbalance will
attract energies that help clear it.
Dear friends, old friends, we love you so dearly! You are beginning to recognize
who you are and why you are here. You are now beginning to own your divinity.
You stand so much prouder today than even six weeks ago (at the September 1,
2001 Crimson Circle gathering). You stand so much prouder, especially now than
four weeks and four days ago (since September 11, 2001). You have learned much.
We know it has been difficult. And you know we have been around. You know that
we have been as close to you as ever, because you have opened your heart, and
you have allowed us to be close. We know you have been breathing in and balancing
your own divinity during this time.
Now, there are many who come in as our visitors today. We are being asked to
caution you. This might be somewhat difficult for some of you to handle, but
there is a reason for these guests. See it through with us.
The first guest had an appointment to be here on September 1, the date of our
last meeting with you, but we asked him to delay. He is the one you know as
Archangel Raphael. Raphael now enters the space you are in, radiant and beaming,
sending his energy out to each of you. His energy should feel familiar to you.
Raphael walks with you, particularly in the difficult parts of your journey.
He has been walking with you lately. We jokingly refer to Raphael as the Archangel
of Fear. Raphael is one who works with you to transmute the energies of darkness
and fear. He walks with you during the most difficult of times. Raphael helps
you transmute energies that are difficult or uncomfortable.
Raphael makes his presence known, and thanks you for opening your heart to him.
We have waited for quite some time to bring Raphael in. We introduced him to
a group in your place called Reno (August 26, 2001) when we discussed the issues
of fear. He was scheduled to visit with this group five days later (at the September
1 Crimson Circle), but we changed that. He comes in now at this time.
Raphael stands strong and noble. Indeed, he is an old friend. You asked him
to be on the other side of the veil to you connect with when you became a human.
You can connect with Raphael at any time to help transmute fear, to help transmute
darkness. Raphael makes his presence known throughout this entire room, spreading
his energy, letting you know he is here.
The next guest we have invited in on this day … you may not like so much.
We bring in a new visitor who will sit at your feet, and who will perhaps be
all over you during our discussion. There is one of these visitors for each
of you. This is a snake, who represents your own fears and your own darkness.
This snake slithers in on the floor to coil up next to you during the remainder
of our time here together.
This snake represents your own darknesses, your own fears. Remember that first,
the energy of Rafael filled this room. We know there are a few who are somewhat
uncomfortable and are now asking, "Oh, Tobias, we thought you were our
old friend! And now you bring snakes in to sit by us! What type of meeting is
this?" (audience laughter)
We ask you to feel the energy of this snake. It is your fears. It is the outer
manifestation of your fears. It is also a swirling, rising potential of energy
that sits at your feet at all times, metaphorically. The snake is depicted in
the DNA. It is your kundalini, a rising energy potential, but one that holds
There is also… (pause) Cauldre interrupts us to say, it was appropriate
to invite you to go out into the "zone," but he is not so sure it
is appropriate to snore! (This is referring to a member of the audience who
dozed off. This comment created brief audience laughter and Tobias chuckling.)
We will continue. Cauldre finds himself most amusing, and we try not to laugh,
but there are times when even he can be funny. (More audience laughter.)
Now, we will continue with the visitors on this day. There is an energy that
enters this room now, at our invitation and for a reason. It is an energy may
be difficult for you to handle. The energy that comes in now is of three who
you would call of Middle Eastern descent who were terrorists, They are the ones
who were part of this plan and this plot, who were on these airplanes that caused
these horrific events of September 11. There are three that asked us to be here
on this day. After much consideration, we have allowed them to be in the energy
of this place. They are the ones who planned for murder. They are the ones who
held firmly to their beliefs. They meticulously plotted and planned the intentional
demise of fellow humans.
Their energy enters the room. And we remind all of you that first, the energy
of Raphael came here and was planted and established. These three who come today
are not doing so well. They are not doing well. They thought when they crossed
over Allah would be there to greet them, and to have ceremony, and tell them
how they have defended the kingdom of Allah.
But instead, these three felt the suffering, the mass suffering and the pain
and the agony. They stood in the tunnel of nearly 6000 who crossed over on that
day. They watched each one as they came through. They felt the confusion and
the imbalance and the anger and the sorrow. And when they thought it was done,
when some 6000 humans came through, and they felt that horrible energy, then
they felt the energy of the families and friends in the prayers that came through
afterwards. They felt the grieving and the sadness and the tears.
Then they felt something that has changed them. They felt your loving thoughts
and feelings, and of all the other humans on Earth rise up. They felt the hope.
They thought – and their co-conspirators to this day still think –
that their actions would have torn at and ruined the fabric of the new energy,
of the new Earth, of the new way. They thought the toppling of several buildings
would start a chain of events that would go so deep that it would topple all
of those things that have risen up within humanity in these past years. They
thought this would start clashes and demonstrations and riots in the streets.
What they saw was empowered, divine and loving humans caring about each other,
looking to immediately rebuild something that had been torn apart. They saw
humans who were grieving, but humans that more importantly were hoping.
And this has changed the three that come here today. None of them who are here
-– they are standing on the stage, if you would like to look to the right
of me – none of them here expected what would happen. It has changed them
profoundly, for they saw a new truth. They saw the power of hope and love. They
have seen how quickly the fabric of the new energy is being woven. They are
still in deep sorrow for what they have done, for they understand, when they
came to an awakening quite recently, that there was another way to do this.
It did not have to be done through violence and killing and righteousness. There
is another way to handle the changes. There is another way to handle the imbalance.
The ones who stand here today do not ask for forgiveness, for they know this
is not appropriate. They do not come here to ask this. What each one of them
asks for – this is plain and direct – what they ask for is simple.
They ask nothing for themselves. They know there will have to be much transmuting
and processing within their beings. But they come here today, and when they
told us what their cause was, that is why we opened the door for them to let
them in. They come here today to ask each of you to continue your work. We have
asked you time and time again to continue. The world needs teachers of divinity
at this time. They come here today to ask in a way stronger than I, Tobias,
could ever ask.
They ask you to continue. They have seen the effects of what love and hope and
truth can do. They ask nothing from you, other than to continue with what you
are doing. If there was ever a statement that would give credibility to all
that you have been doing in this lifetime, and even the others, it is the three
that stand here. We ask you to hold the energy of this moment, if you should
ever doubt the work that you do.
They know, these three, that they have much clearing and cleansing to do. They
know it will be a difficult road and a difficult journey. They know that Raphael
will be there with them on their long and difficult journey. You do not need
to send them healing or love. You do not need to feel sorrow or anger. You just
need to understand the effect of what you are doing. Four weeks and four days
ago, they saw the effects of enlightened humans all over the world. They clearly
thought, from their perspective, that this would be the domino effect, that
it would break down things. Do you know that they felt so strongly about this
that their second level plans were almost nonexistent?
Now, we are here to tell you that there will be much work for you to do. We
are not asking you to pick up any specific belief system or philosophy. We are
not asking you to read any specific books or do any ceremony. As you know, we
are not so much in favor of these things! We are asking you to go within, for
the answers lie within. We are not asking you to teach this work of the Crimson
Circle, lesson by lesson. We are asking you to embrace the essence of it and
to help bring it forth. We are asking you to be there when the knock comes at
your door and to begin your work.
The three that come in today are asking you the same thing. The three that are
here today, just maybe, just maybe, may be the ones in a new physical body who
come knocking at your door. You will be an old and wise and sage teacher. You
will perhaps recognize their energy from this day, perhaps it will be 20 or
30 or 40 years in the future, but they may come knocking, saying, "I don't
know what it is about you, but I see a light. I see a balance. I see a joy.
Help me to understand."
Now, before we continue with the lesson of this day, dear friends, we ask Cauldre
to be in pause for a moment. We ask you to breathe in your own divinity. Find
a relaxing position to breathe in your divinity. We will return after a brief
As we look at your energies, we see it as so much different. Some of you may
not feel the same connection with us that they have had in the past. We ask
you to go several levels above from where you used to go. You have changed;
therefore, you will find us in a slightly different vibration.
Now, we would like to begin this lesson with a short story. It is the story
of four Shaumbra who are walking down the road of ascension. They were walking
down Enlightenment Parkway. (audience laughter) They were walking down this
road that seemed to be out in the middle of nowhere. They were enjoying the
beautiful sun on this day. In this group of four humans, there were two men
and two women. They were not saying many words to each other. They were simply
enjoying the day. They knew, much as you know, there are some beautiful days
on this Enlightenment Parkway, and there are some days when it is cold and windy
and raining. There are days when you can hardly find the road, much less walk
So, the four Lightworkers were walking along, somewhat carefree, their heads
in the clouds, partly out of their bodies, which is a tendency for many of Shaumbra!
(audience laughter) Suddenly, a snake crawled up from the brush, onto the road,
and stopped directly in front of the fourth human, a woman one who was at the
back of the group. The snake slithered up to her and cut her off her path.
Now, as you know, Shaumbra, in particular, have a fear of snakes. There is a
good reason for this.
The snake coiled its body, reared its head and directed energies of fear straight
through its eyes directly into hers. This broke down everything she had ever
learned or studied. It broke her down for a moment. She shrieked, and she went
running back at amazing speed, back to the village where they came from that
morning. She left so quickly that the others in the group could not even catch
her and settle her down. She was filled with so much fear! She was so deeply
terrified by this snake that she forgot every tool she had ever learned.
The snake was very pleased with his activities and his power, for he did not
even need to exert himself. He scared away this human. Be gone with her! He
instantly slid back into the underbrush, out of sight, out of the way of the
other three Shaumbra who remained. They were confused. They did not know what
to do. They were sad that one of their own had run back to the village, and
would probably not resume her path on this road to ascension for quite some
time. They discussed it briefly, and decided to continue on their path. They
gave thanks and blessings that at least no one was harmed.
The three remaining Shaumbra continued on the path, enjoying the day, when once
again a snake appeared from the underbrush. It came darting onto the road, in
direct contact with one of the males. It coiled up his head and opened his mouth
to expose his pointed teeth. The lightworker said, "I will kill you. You
make me angry! You chased away one of the others. I'm going to kill you once
and for all!" He pulled the knife out of the sheath, held his arm back,
and was about to strike a blow, when the snake coiled, released, and bit him
in the leg. He died instantly. The anger had arisen within him. He was going
to save and protect the others. He was going to kill the snake, but the snake
was much more cunning. The snake was much faster. The snake caught him off guard
and killed him. The snake quickly escaped back into the underbrush, out of sight
of the other two Shaumbra.
The two remaining Shaumbra buried their friend. They did ceremony. They wept.
Then they decided to continue on the road, two Shaumbra, one man and one woman.
They continued walking and enjoying the day, but now it weighed heavy on them
– the events of one Shaumbra who had been scared silly and ran back to
the village and the other who had come to what seemed to be an untimely death.
They continued walking, and as you already know, the snake once again came from
the underbrush, slithered onto the road, and put itself directly in the way
of the one woman who remained.
The one woman Lightworker who remained decided to use a different tact this
time. Instead of trying to kill the snake, she would talk the snake through
its fears and angers. She knelt down, just out of reach of the snake. She said,
"Oh, dear snake, you must have had a difficult childhood! (lots of audience
laughter) Dear snake, I raise my hands now, not to attack you, but I will send
you energy, and I will send you love, and I will heal you and all of the wounds
from your very disturbing childhood. Oh, dear snake, I imagine that your father
beat you, and that is why you are so angry. (audience laughter) And dear snake,
I will sing you a lullaby to make you feel better, to nurture your inner snake."
(more audience laughter)
Now, the snake coiled back and had an interesting look on his face, a look that
was quite puzzled. Here was a human that was not displaying anger. Here was
a human that was trying to change him. Here was a human who was trying to process
him. (more audience laughter) The snake looked at her, and a big smile came
across his face. And the woman Shaumbra thought, "I am connecting with
him, heart-to-heart. Look. He is smiling." Suddenly the snake leapt forward
and bit her. She died instantly. (some audience laughter) And the snake retreated
back into the underbrush, laughing and laughing and laughing to himself. "Here
was a human, trying to change the world and to change me. She was the easiest
of all my targets!"
Now, the one remaining Shaumbra is one who we will call Samuel. Now, Samuel
buried this lightworker, this former healer. Samuel buried her. And he was quite
concerned now. He wondered about this road of ascension, Enlightenment Parkway.
This was not such a good thing, for now one of his kind had been chased away
in fear and two had been killed. He sat and thought for quite awhile about whether
to continue on the path. Finally, he said, "It is so deep within my being
and deep within my soul that I must continue."
He continued walking, somewhat more carefully and more cautious than he had
before, but he continued walking. And as you already know, after a short period
of time, the snake crawled up from the underbrush once again, now feeling more
invigorated and more powerful for having chased off three in one way or the
other. The snake came directly in the path of Samuel. The snake said, "I
will allow you to go no further on the path. Like the others who you used to
walk with, I will kill you now."
Now, Samuel was much like each one of you here. Samuel had been so diligent
in integrating his inner divinity, in his search for his True Self and staying
in his sweet spot. Samuel remembered a few things he had learned, even in this
terrifying moment. Samuel looked the snake eye-to-eye, who was coiled and ready
to bite. The snake was empowered with the blood of a human dripping from his
mouth. He was so delighted with himself.
At that moment Samuel said to himself, "I must take ownership of my divinity.
It is not about me anymore. I have been told that. I must take ownership and
be in a place of balance. I must breathe in – rather quickly here now.
(brief laughter) I must breathe in my divinity, for this is what I have learned
to be true."
Unbeknownst to either Samuel or the snake, an eagle had been circling overhead,
watching the series of events. At the moment Samuel took in the breath, the
eagle swooped down, grabbed the snake with its strong and sturdy claws, flew
up hundreds and hundreds of feet into the air, did circles and spins with the
snake screaming and slithering its claws. Then the eagle dropped the snake to
his death on the ground.
Samuel breathed again, but this time, it was with relief. He continued walking
on his path, and thought about the events of this very strange day. He contemplated
all that had happened. He thought about the eagle, who had truly been there
all of the time, waiting for the appropriate moment to come forth, waiting for
the appropriate moment for Samuel to be in his balance and his divinity.
Samuel continued walking on the path of enlightenment, when suddenly another
snake appeared. It was a relative of the snake who was killed. This new snake
was very, very angry. This new snake darted from the underbrush and stopped
directly in front of Samuel. It was almost twice as long as the first snake.
It coiled in front of him, and said, "I will surely kill you now, for you
have killed my own relative. I will have revenge. I must, for that is the way
of our snake god. We revenge all who do us harm."
Now, Samuel had been thinking quite a bit along his walk, ever since the first
snake was killed. He knew it was a blessed and sacred moment when the eagle
came down. He also knew that it was a divine act, and he knew there was more
to be learned from all of this. So while he was walking along down the road,
thinking, he came asked questions of himself. "What is it that I should
know about the events of the snake? What is it that I should do if this ever
would happen again to me?" He listened within for the answers to his questions.
He knew that the answers always come from within.
Samuel knew that he couldn’t just close his eyes and wish that the eagle
would swoop down once again. He knew it was time to truly take ownership of
his divinity. He looked the snake in the eye and said, "Dear snake, what
is it you seek? Why are you in my path?" The snake was shocked! No human
had ever asked this question. Humans had acted in fear or anger or sometimes
stupidity, but they had never displayed this kind of wisdom. They had never
asked, "Why are you here in my path? What is that you have for me?"
To his questions, the snake responded, "Dear Samuel, I am you. I am no
different from you. I am not some external reptile. I am your darkness, and
I come here today to stand in your path because you, Samuel, do not like change.
You, Samuel, have issues that need addressing. I am here as a messenger to help
you bring your issues to the surface." Samuel thought for a moment and
then asked the snake, "But if it is so simple, if it is so simple, then
why did the first snake kill and scare the other humans? Why couldn’t you
just come to us and explain why you are here?"
And the snake shook what little head it had (audience laughter) and said, "That
is not the way the energy works. It is only when we are asked, only when you
have enough curiosity, only when you open the door by asking the questions,
can we then answer. We do not want to be changed. We do not want to be attacked.
But when a human comes to us – the snake that is within – and asks,
then we must tell. We must share."
So Samuel now understood his own power, his own balance, and he understood why
the snake had been sent there in the first place. They talked for many, many,
many hours. Samuel learned much through this experience about himself. He saw
the darkness and the fears that were within him, expressed through the snake.
When they were done, Samuel said to the snake, "I still do not like you.
I still do not like when you show up on my path. I still do not like what you
represent. But, now I know that you come bearing a gift. Now I know there is
a reason for your being, and now I know how to address you and what to do."
Samuel continued on his path. There was an occasional but rare snake that attempted
to stop him. He understood it was just a test of his own being to see if he
was still staying in his balance. But now, each time a snake appeared before
Samuel, he would smile, and he would say, "Why are you here? What is it
that I should know? Why are you here? What is it that you want?"
Dear friends, this story has many energetic elements to it. There are many metaphors
and symbols contained in these words. It would be a good thing to review this
from time to time.
It is to know that the darkness within you seeks release. Lesson Three of the
Ascension Series – the darkness within you seeks release. The darkness
is the snake that sits at your feet right now. It is the snake from the story
of Samuel. The darkness within seeks release.
As you move into your new ascension status, there are still issues. There are
still the imbalances. They will appear, but understand, as Samuel came to understand,
that the darkness, at its core level, are issues and energies within you that
seek release. That is all.
If you hold an imbalance of fear within you, the darkness will cause you to
go scampering back to the village where you came from. If you hold fears and
you allow them to let you forget everything you’ve learned, to shake you
to the core, you will run backwards to the village, back to your security. This
snake of fear and darkness that scared you away did not get what he came for.
He was trying to scare you, but in reality he was really looking to be addressed.
The darkness seeks release. It has insidious ways of doing this. It has damaging
and crippling ways of doing it. But go straight to the core and understand that
the darkness within you seeks to be released. You will then understand the events
in the world around you. You will understand what is happening with the current
situation in your world. The darkness seeks to be released!
When you try to kill the snake as the second, male lightworker did, when you
go after it in anger, it is throws you into imbalance. You have discovered that
in yourself. When you are angry, when there is something that happens from within
and you get angry within yourself, you lose! Anger is an imbalance. Understand
this when the snake is standing in front of you, and you are angry, and you
draw your knife, and say, "I will cut your head off. I will kill you here."
Even if you do manage to kill the snake, it will come back trhough all of its
relatives. It will be there, because the darkness seeks to be released. You
have only inflicted anger and pain on it. But it will persist. It will be there.
It will be in your path of ascension and enlightenment. Anger does not solve
Look at the world situation now. If your country of the Americas had immediately
responded to the events of September 11 in anger, which in a sense, many of
these terrorists had hoped for, it would have made the situation so much worse.
But yet, the world held a balance of energy that prevented any immediate strikes.
It prevented an assimilation of what was going on. Anger will not solve the
Now, let us take a look at the third Lightworker, the healer woman. Her objective
was to change the snake. She wanted to process the snake. The snake wanted to
be released, but not in that way. The snake didn’t want to be changed to
fit a certain mold. The snake doesn’t want sympathy. The snake didn’t
want some sugary type of healing that really only works on the surface. The
snake was hurting within, the darkness within you. The snake wants real, direct
and true answers, and energies from you. It does not need some fluffy type of
We want you to think about this also. The terrorists who stand here know that
fluffy solutions will not solve the problem. Their relatives – the organizations
that they came from before their deaths – will not respond so nicely if
you sit speak empty words and do not show your strength. Our third Lightworker,
the woman, did not show an internal strength. She did not hold her divinity.
She was in imbalance. She was trying to change something, trying to change the
world and transform it with an agenda that was her own, trying to change it
to conform to a certain picture of how she wanted it to look. That is why the
snake bit and killed her.
Samuel, the fourth lightworker who was balanced in male and female energy, knew
in a terrifying and difficult moment that he could not think fast enough to
pull all of his tools in when confronted with the first snake. But he knew one
thing that was simple – breathe, breathe in divinity. As you practice this
each day, it becomes an unconscious thing. As you breathe in, the divinity comes
with it. Samual knew in a moment that the breath would bring him to a balance
and anchor his divinity. And what happened, what happened but the eagle soaring
overhead had always been there with a watchful eye, always waiting to get a
piece of the snake, but waiting for the right opportunity. That opened the door.
An outside event happened, a seemingly outside, event happened that kept Samuel
from certain death. But he also had the wisdom to know that he must understand
the reason why the snake had been there in the first place. That is why, in
his journey down the road, that he took time to think why the snake was there.
He knew, as you would know, that it was there for a reason. It was there for
When the darkness comes up, and the fear comes up, and the snake comes up within
you, own your divinity. Breathe it in. Stay in your balance. Do not try to change
something that you do not quite yet understand. Do not try to kill it. Do not
run away in fear. Hold and own your divinity. Ask the darkness within you why
it is there, what needs to be released. There is an imbalance of energy within
you that needs addressing. Perhaps there was an old remorse. You do not need
to go back into lifetime after lifetime to know exactly what it is. That would
be a waste of time and energy. But, there is perhaps an old remorse or guilt.
Or perhaps it is part of a wisdom that it is not fully complete, so it stands
in imbalance within you. The snake will come forward at the appropriate time
to let you know that there is something within that needs to be released.
Energy, spiritual energy, is an amazing thing. We know you are beginning to
study it. The group that went to England and stood in the vortex of Avebury
experienced it. It is still affecting their circuits. It is still affecting
their health and their tissues and their spiritual energies. They stood in the
middle of one of the most powerful vortexes in the world that was filled with
energy that needed to be released, darkness that needed to be released. They
understand now its power and its capability. Within you is the same – energies
that need to be released.
When darkness comes to you on the path of enlightenment and ascension, own your
divinity. Hold it. Breathe in and ask what it is you should know. And understand
all the time this is about releasing and transmuting an old energy.
Look into the world at this time. There are old energies that need to be released,
old energies that need addressing. They don’t come forward, and say, "We
are hurting inside. Tell us what we need to do to release." It does not
work like that. As Cauldre calls this type of energy, whether it is within you
or in the outside world… it is like "spiritual cockroaches."
They go, and they hide. They hide within you, these darknesses, these snakes.
They are hiding in caves. They represent an old energy of Earth that needs to
be released. You must address them with strength. You must address in balance;
otherwise it will backfire on you.
There are old unbalanced energies of Earth regarding the original duality of
male and female. It is time for those to change. Things cannot go forward without
these changes. So, what happens? They come up to the surface. There will be
other events here in the next several years of your time. There is a whole area
that has an explosive energy. It is a terminal energy. It is a low energy that
will only eat on itself and destroy itself. It needs releasing. This is your
area of Africa. Look at the energy there. It is seeking release. But remember,
remember the third lightworker. Do not go there as Pollyanna-ish Shaumbra to
try to change the world. It will come to you, and you will know what to do.
You will know how to handle it.
As you go through these many, many changes, and as you personally evolve, there
will be imbalances that come up from within you. Address these. Understand at
their core level they want to be released. When they are, there is an energy
of the darkness that spins the light. Do you know this is another basic law
of spiritual physics? When the energy from the dark is released, it then spins
the light. This allows you to soar to new heights. It allows you to discover
new things on your path to ascension. It is like a fuel. It is there in service
to you. But if you do not release it correctly, it does have the tendency to
explode in your face.
Dear friends, we know this path is difficult at times, but we know each of you
are gaining the wisdom and the strength and the balance and the ownership to
handle it. We know you've gone through many processes over these past few weeks
of time. We know that you are coming into your own. We can see it here today.
We can see it. We know you have many, many questions about what is happening
to you, what is happening in the world. And within you, contained within you,
is the answer for each one of these. We are simply here, like Raphael, to help
guide you on your path, to walk with you, to reflect back to you, and if nothing
else, to simply sit here in this energy, this energy of love and hope and truth
with old friends.
Now, we tell you that there is much work to be done. We tell you that if you
begin looking at energies associated with things outside of you – governments
religions, organizations – you will begin to see quite clearly where the
imbalances are. You will be able to truly help facilitate a process. You will
know when you are being called on. You will know when it is appropriate to respond.
You will know what to do. Understand at a core level that darkness seeks to
We are not much for predictions, for making prophecies, but we see the direction
of things. We see that with the events and the major leap in consciousness from
four weeks and four days ago that changes will continue to sweep the world.
What we see is that there will be a change at the core level of your own churches
and religions. There has been much energy focused on these recently. This will
continue. The churches that hold an imbalance of energy, that hold duality,
can no longer survive in the new energy. The churches that promote separation
between God and man cannot hold their own as you move into the new energy. The
churches that create an enemy, the devil, other religions… they cannot
move so well into the new energy.
The churches hold a tremendous imbalance of duality energy at this time. You
will see them always associated with the core of the problems, as you have for
thousands and ten of thousands of years. You will see this continue, but you
will see their walls come crumbling down, meaning they will be forced to change,
to be more open, or they will crumble and be out of existence.
Most of the energy of duality is held in those places that were built to worship
God. Most places that were built to worship God hold a tremendous imbalance
of a male and female energy. That must come to a stop in order to move into
the new energy. The ones who hold the power of these places, of these churches
and philosophies, understand this. By understanding it, they become more fearful,
and they make ignorant remarks to the press (referring to Jerry Falwell’s
remarks after the September 11 events). By becoming more fearful they will also
become more righteous, and they will hold on tighter than ever before. It is
because they feel they are losing their grip. They are losing their foundation.
As the new energy comes to be, it is not appropriate for that old imbalanced
energy of duality to be there.
Why do we bring this up, dear friends, as we talked about across the border
not so long ago (referring to the channeling in Toronto regarding the "new
churches")? You are the ones who will build the new churches, but not churches
with walls or structures or rules. These are churches that teach one basic principle
and only one – the divine is within. The divine is you. Each individual
has a birthright from the kingdom, a birthright of divinity. Let no one else
tell you that they hold the keys to your divinity! When you are a teacher, understand
you are only facilitating a process and a journey for your students. Tobias
and Raphael… we are only facilitating a process for you. You will only
facilitate a process for others.
Now, Cauldre tells us we have spoken long, but we enjoy time together. We enjoy
being with humans so fresh with enthusiasm, so renewed in a way, tired at times,
but you are so renewed here. You are so alive. That is what we feel when we
come in here. You are so filled with the breath of life and the breath of Spirit.
The three visitors – the ones that were the terrorists, who are now doing
much contemplating on the other side – asked us to be here with a group
of humans who were actively and lovingly working through the darkness. They
heard there were humans who were truly learning to integrate the divinity, without
taking power from another, without owning another, without battling another.
They asked to see one such group. They stand here today, not thinking that they
can ever fill your shoes. They stand here, wondering where they took the wrong
turn on their journey, and how it is that there are such enlightened and loving
humans on Earth. They tap us on the shoulder and say, "Tobias, remind the
ones who are here… these are the real workers. They are not the sugary,
fluffy workers. These are the real workers." They can see in your energy
the conviction, the ownership you have for your own divinity.
We love you dearly. We love this time that we sit in with you. These times are
so precious. You are all like Samuel, having learned so much, having gained
so much wisdom. You are truly ready to teach the others. And remember –
and Raphael underlines this and adds an exclamation point – you are never
And so it is.
Tobias of the Crimson Council is presented by Geoffrey Hoppe, 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 40,000 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.
Crimson Circle gatherings are open to the public, although RSVPs are appreciated.
There is nothing to join and no dues to pay. 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 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.
