If you attended the December Shoud or tuned
in online, you probably noticed the new “ShaumbraVision”
screen behind Linda and I. It’s a large
sheet of special plexiglass material, laser
etched to absorb and radiate light coming from
the special short-throw projector (beamer) behind
is the brainchild of Joseph Collins, a long-time
volunteer staff member and monthly meeting coordinator.
Joseph spent several months researching and
testing the technology before it debuted at
the December Shaumbra gathering. The challenge
was to have a clear, bright image even with
all of the lights in front of the stage area.
Until now we had a conventional pull-down screen
to the left of the stage area with a projector
mounted in the ceiling.
new ShaumbraVision allows all of the images,
including the slides, graphics, and Linda and
I, to be in the same area. It also eliminates
the problem of walking in front of the projector
and blocking the light. ShaumbraVision is similar
to technology used for professional trade shows
and displays. Hats off to Joseph and the meeting
crew for adding another enhancement to our outstanding
It’s taken me at least three months to
become comfortable with Adamus walkin’
and talkin’ during the Shouds. It’s
been quite a transition after sitting with my
eyes closed for ten years with Tobias. I really,
really didn’t like it at first. It felt
like I was going to pop out of channel-mode
at any minute because my humans senses were
too overwhelmed by seeing the audience and maneuvering
my physical body. It also feels like Adamus
talks a lot faster than Tobias.
finally got accustomed to Adamus’ style
at the Berlin Mystery School in late November.
And I finally learned how to handle the tremendous
amount of energy coming from him, through my
body, to the audience. Now I feel like I’m
floating on a cloud with Adamus gently guiding
my body and using my eyes to connect with Shaumbra.
It only took about five minutes into the Shoud
this month to synch in with Adamus’ movements,
gestures and pace. I was amazed when Linda told
me that the Shoud was nearly two hours long.
It felt like less than an hour, and I know Adamus
had a lot more to talk about.
loves to walk around! There are times during
the channel that I’ll ask him to sit for
a while, just so I can get off my feet (and
so Roy Hansen and Joe Engel, our camera operators,
have a bit of a break). But Adamus finds it
difficult to spend more than a minute or so
in the chair before he starts walking around
again. He’s a true showman.
people ask what I see during Adamus’ performances.
It’s kind of like watching multiple movies,
superimposed over each other. I see the people
in the audience like I normally would, but then
I also see some of the layers of their energy
and aspects. Adamus never pries into their issues;
he respects their privacy and confidentiality.
much as I miss Tobias, I can’t image going
back to the old Closed-Eye-Sitting-in-the-Chair
mode. I love the interaction with the audience,
being able to see everyone’s faces and
eyes, and feeling the energy in the room as
Adamus walks around. I also noticed that it
takes less time for “me” to come
back into myself after a channel. With Tobias,
it could take two to three hours to really feel
back into myself. Now I feel re-centered in
less than an hour. Adamus comes in strong and
Years ago Tobias taught me how to communicate
with him without words. It was one of the toughest
parts of the “basic training” he
took me through before I ever started channeling.
I just couldn’t grasp the concept of how
to communicate without words. Every time I tried
to form and convey a thought, I would automatically
attached “words” to the idea.
trying to convey the idea of a jet airplane
to someone that never heard of one. You would
tend to describe the wings, the thrust of the
jets, the cockpit and the fuselage… in
words. Now try conveying it without words, without
pictures or without gestures. The moment you
try sending pure “feelings,” the
mind has a tendency to interject words. We’re
taught and conditioned to use words even if
we’re not speaking because our concepts
flow through the mind.
half of my conversations with Tobias were without
words, but when I was lazy or just the least
bit off-balance I would resort to words. Tobias
let me choose. But Adamus insists that all of
our communications are wordless. It’s
challenging and frustrating at times, but I
have to admit that I’ve learned a lot
about going into deep, pure thoughts beyond
the mind. On my good days it’s actually
easier than using words. And I’ve come
to realize how words are very limiting and restricted.
I wasn’t surprised when Adamus gave all
of us this as our homework this month. He asked
us to tell him a story, without words. While
it may sound simple, don’t be surprised
if it totally confounds you. But I encourage
you not to give up; the more you practice the
more you’ll realize how true angelic communications
are done. You’ll discover how to go beyond
language, the mind and linear thoughts. You’ll
know you’re “getting it” when
you feel this opening in your heart, and you’re
flooded with pure feeling.
It’s been an amazing year for all of us.
We said goodbye to Tobias after ten years of
sharing. Adamus has stepped in with style to
guide us into a new level of consciousness.
We’ve had a lot of tears and a lot of
laughs this year, we’ve seen the collapse
of old institutions and the birth of new energies.
I’ve personally seen Shaumbra come of
age this year, meaning that we’re going
beyond drama and processing. As Adamus mentioned
in the December Shoud, Shaumbra are real. They
aren’t trying to escape this human reality,
rather they are allowing themselves to embrace
all that life has to offer while opening to
the other dimensions and realities. That can
challenge any of us to the core, but as we release
the old issues and blocks we come to realize
the beautiful, elegant simplicity of the “I
and I extend our heartfelt thanks and blessings
to you as we close out this year. We offer a
very special thanks to the Crimson Circle staff
for their hard work and dedication, and to all
of the volunteers that help produce the monthly
webcasts and Crimson Circle events. We take
a deep bow of gratitude to the international
workshop sponsors, website hosts and translators
that are bringing the message to over 100 countries
around the world. And finally, we miss you Tobias!
I know that you and Sam are still very, very
connected to the Crimson Circle but all of us
miss our time together, and hearing those precious
words, “And So It Is.”
