Tobias’ Discovering Your Passion workshop is now available as a five audio-CD Personal Study Course. The channels were recorded in Denver, Colorado in June 2008 and have been put together in a comprehensive Personal Study Course complete with a Study Guide and text transcripts of the channels.

The Discovering Your Passion Personal Study Course allows Shaumbra around the world to hear the important and timely information from Tobias about passion in the comfort of their own home, on their own schedule. “What is my passion?” is one of the most frequently asked questions to Tobias. In this insightful course Tobias talks about what passion is, why it has changed, and how to bring passion back into your life.

Intuition: Have you ever wondered what it is? Is it only for privileged few? Are women naturally more intuitive than men? How does it really work? Can it be learned, or enhanced?

In 'Expanding Your Intuition' Tobias will give you the background information to understand what intuition is and how it works. Kuthumi’s guided exercise will take you through the process of opening and expanding your intuition, and Adamus Saint-Germain will work with you for a fortnight to experience and use intuition in your life.

Choosing For You
       - by Jan Brouwer


When it comes to money or abundance, each society has very clear ideas and perceptions. And, as one of my former colleagues, a marketeer, said: perception is reality. These ideas and percep¬tions are sometimes so strong that they indeed create a mass belief system to which most people unconsciously subscribe and then allow their lives to be influenced by it.

In our Dutch society you are expected and praised to sacrifice everything in favor of your children. You are also expected to honor and keep the commitments that you have made with others, even if it becomes detrimental to yourself. There is also a reluctance to accept the gifts of others, especially if they are big and you didn’t “earn” them. As the Dutch literally say when you give them some¬thing, “You shouldn’t have done that.” The Dutch are generally suspicious when it comes to bigger gifts because they know that “only the sun rises for free,” which is similar to the American expression, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.”

Another important belief system is that in order to be success¬ful and abundant, you need to have the best education and work hard, very hard. Finally, our society has very defined ideas about what abundance is. Basically the belief is that you are only abun¬dant when you have a lot of money and assets. Of course, as I’m sure you have noticed, most of these beliefs are not unique to the Dutch people, for they can be found in all modern societies.

Now, how do these mass beliefs affect you in your daily life? And more importantly, how can they prevent you from experiencing abun¬dance? Let me give you a few examples from my own experience.

In 1990, my wife and I had just moved to a new house and had our third child. I was working as a banker in the film industry at the time, which was an incredible experience and I still cherish some unique memories. One of my clients was a German film distributor. He was born in a Jewish family who, before the Second World War, owned a chain of cinemas. He was the only survivor of his family and after the war he settled in Germany. He had been quite suc¬cessful in the film industry and I very much enjoyed working with him. Not only was he a very nice business man, but he was also a very gentle and wise person.

Our working relationship quickly evolved into a personal friend¬ship and I believe that at a certain point in time he even considered me as the son he never had. I shared many of my problems with him (at the time I was going through a difficult period in my mar¬riage) and he was always there to listen and provide me with a different perspective of things.

One day we were talking about the fact that I had problems with my car, which was becoming less and less reliable, and he said that he would love to give me a new car. He stated that with small children I should have the safest and most spacious family car around. At first I thought he was joking, but it became clear very quickly that he was dead serious.

Now you have to understand that in the film business I was used to receiving gifts, e.g. expensive watches, cases of cham¬pagne, free trips, etc., but this was totally different. Moreover, the banking industry had started to be more critical about gifts from clients, so I felt very uneasy about the whole situation. Could I just accept this enormous gift? What if my boss would find out? Would my superiors understand the special nature of the relation¬ship between the customer and myself? What if my client might come back later and ask me to do something I did not want to or could not do?

I had never felt so uneasy when abundance was knocking at my door, asking permission to come into in my life. But yes, in the end, after a long period of hesitation, I did accept his gift and I very much enjoyed driving that luxurious car. However, the problem was that I continued to feel very uncomfortable, like something bad was hanging over my head with potentially disastrous consequences. Have you ever received a gift and felt that way? It is very strange.

--Excerpt from Choosing For You


If you would like to discuss choosing for yourself with Jan and other Shaumbra, we invite you to join his discussion thread on the Crimson Circle message board. (http://www.shaumbraforums.com/ccc/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=633)

A comment from the board:

I really enjoyed your book. After years of sucking in information about abundance and wondering why nothing was really happening money wise, something finally really clicked for me after reading this.

It's not just about the book, I was just really ready and willing to let the information REALLY sink in...not once did I read something and then say 'ya, but...', nor did it even cross my mind. I just absorbed it and it was truly an easy button for me!

I liked the story you wrote about the millionaire who was worried about having enough money! I laughed out loud. Then I saw this story today about the billionaire who killed himself because he lost money in the crash and he still had some billions left!! http://www.vosizneias.com/25280/2009/01

This is so huge in understanding that having money has nothing to do with actually feeling abundant, just like loving yourself has nothing to do with what you look like! Intellectually I understood this for years, but this time I finally let it in. Thank you and me!
