Message from the Galactic Federation of Light by Greg Giles - March 31, 2012
Hello my friends, in the days ahead there will be challenges that you will be required to rise up and face as courageously as you can, as there will be those of you who are asked to become leaders of your fellow man and lead them through the face of adversity. This is the reason some of you are here, and this is your purpose at this time. If you feel you are being called to the forefront of your people, then we say to you this is your call and you are hearing it loud and clear. We say to you, follow this beacon that will lead you to a destination that will see you taking charge of situations and assisting your brothers and sisters to make it through these days ahead with grace and confidence that they will make it through these events safely, seeing no harm come to them or their families who have trusted your leadership and have been inspired by your wisdom, your courage and your understanding of these events.
What you are being asked to do is to relive the events that have transpired here in the distant past, but this time you will gather all your resources, including each other, to assist you better handle these challenges and rise to the occasion, defeating any obstacle that presents itself in your path. You are being asked to face these challenges with courage and determination and a will to survive. What you are not being asked to do is to panic, to fear, to turn on each other, to quit, to feel sorry for yourselves and to allow these challenging events to overpower you and defeat you.
You all have gone through so much through your many incarnations into the physical, and all of these experiences have been stored within your subconscious as tools in your arsenal to allow you to better face the adversities of the period that you are in at this very moment. All of these past lives and all of these experiences were very important and for a reason, and that reason is now. You may view your past lives as your training ground to hone your skills that you will need to make it through the months ahead according to your terms, according to your vision of how you wish to experience your existence. You make the rules, you call the shots. You have the power and the means to experience the days ahead the way you wish to, and we ask you, do you have the determination, do you have the will, and do you have the courage to make it through these days ahead the way you wish to.
There will be many from this day forward who will choose many different paths of experience, and you will be required to make a decision as to whether you choose to be a follower or a leader. Many paths will present themselves, and many of those among you who will present themselves as leaders down these paths, but remember, there will be many leaders and many paths and not all of them will lead you through smooth roads and clear skies. It is up to you and no one else to choose if you wish to lead, if you wish to follow, and which path you will walk from this moment forward. There will be ‘false prophets’ who beg you to follow their Sirens call, and they will lead you down a path of destruction. Who is it that you are following? Why is it you are following this person? Why do you resonate with their preaching? Where will the path they are leading you down emerge?
It is time to reveal to you more of your purpose here, and the time has come for you to understand better your choices as the days are numbered and they grow shorter every moment. The days and months will pass by you very quickly and it will be soon that important choices present themselves to you, and it is of most importance for you to accurately recognize them and consciously realize that a choice is being offered you and that you must choose. There will be no way to move forward without choosing a path, and not choosing will result in you traveling down one of these paths whether you consciously made this decision or not.
As we have advised you all along, there is nothing to fear. This does not mean you cannot choose fear as one of your paths. All along all of your journeys you have always had the option of choosing the path of fear, or choosing the path of love. This is no different today, and will be no different tomorrow. You may if you wish, consciously choose each path presented to you based on these two differing emotions. We will not persuade you to choose either of these paths. You do not need our coaching any longer in this regard. Each of you by now understands, at least superficially, the differences between these two emotions and the qualities and traits that each of these paths will bring to your experience. Recognizing the differences between a path of fear and a path of love should come naturally to you. Which is the path that makes you feel good, makes you feel safe and secure, makes you feel loved, makes you feel confident, makes you feel empowered, and which is the path that instills you with fear, of emptiness, of insecurity, of uncertainty, of danger?
We will not point you in either direction down any of the paths presented before you as this is not why we are here, and it is not our right to influence you in this way. We are here to assist you in many ways, but we are not here to convince you how to proceed through your journey. We will offer you choices of our own, but you maintain the right to either accept or decline our assistance. No one will ever force anything upon you, and if they do, then you may immediately recognize this energy as either love or fear, light or dark. Some of what we offer you will benefit those of you who choose to proceed through the following days safely, seeing no harm come to them or their families, but again, it is your choice whether to accept these offerings.
The days ahead will rock the foundations of many of the lives of your people; there will be no doubt of this. How you respond as individuals and as a collective has been the subject of much debate and study for eons of time, and we are as uncertain how you will choose to experience these events ahead as some of you may be uncertain as well. What we plan to do is make your choices crystal clear, and to lay out for you like a roadmap these paths so you will be able to carefully study these lanes and more accurately see where each one leads. This is what we can do for you and we will do just this, and each and every one of you will have the opportunity to see clearly all the roads before you that will lead you from today to the end of this chapter in your history.
We feel that uncertainty is a cause of a great amount of the fear that many of you are feeling at this time, and it is uncertainty that we feel is an undue part of the equation and we will make every effort to remove this factor from the equation. We would like to say at this time that there will be at least one path that leads you through these events unscathed and unhurt, and that will allow you to experience your ascension into the higher realms according to the wishes many of you expressed before your current incarnations. This will be one of your choices, and this choice will not be taken away or disappear for any reason. Understanding this should put some of your minds at ease as you now know that this path exists and will present itself for you to consider and to choose if this is what you wish.
To recognize this path we suggest to you to review your tools that can help you better recognize and discriminate between the paths of love and fear. It will be up to you to make each decision going forward, and we wish you to always keep in mind that at any time you can exit one path and begin on another if you choose. You may find that you are walking on a path that begins to grow darker as night begins to set in. You may, if you choose, exit that path and step foot on the ground warmed by the light of the sun. There will be many opportunities for you to recognize which path it is you walk upon, and as we have said, we will do what we can to make your choices as clear as possible, but will not unduly influence your decision-making.
We understand many of you may be confused at this time and may be feeling fear as you are beginning to learn of events that will surely present themselves. We suggest to you to find your place of center, to remain calm and balanced, and to consider the choices before you. Proceeding in a calm and balanced unemotional state will better prepare your mind for the decisions you will have to make. Making any decisions from a state of imbalanced emotion may cause you to make decisions you feel at that time are in your best interest, but may lead you down a path you would not have chosen if you had remained emotionally balanced. This is why we tell you that fear and its many properties is so detrimental to your journey, as fear clouds your vision and confuses your decision making. Give yourself the opportunity to clearly choose the path you wish to travel by resisting any fear.
As we have said, there is nothing to fear, and at least one of your paths will be smooth, safe and secure, and will lead you through to your ascension. If you remain in a calm and balanced state of emotion this path will shine bright to you and will call you by your name, and there will be no way you can miss it if this is what you choose. Considering this, how important do you feel it is at this time to remove any fear that may dwell inside you and to resist it if it should knock upon your door? Will you make it a priority each and every day and give your sincerest efforts to examine your emotions and work to better control them? We suggest to you to do just this and put aside all of your 3rd dimensional distractions and work on this, studying your emotions and learning to better deal with them.
There are many Lightworkers out there among you who have trained extensively to be of service to you in this very field, and we say to you do not be shy and to ask for their guidance as this is why they are here and this is their mission at this time. If you are receiving guidance from another and they are assisting you to remove the obstacle of fear from your path, than we say to you that you have successfully found a worker of the light who is here in love and service at this time. If you are receiving guidance from another who is reinforcing your fears or adding to your fears in any way, we say to you walk away from this person as they may mean well, but they are not doing the work of the light that they may claim to be doing.
Again, we suggest to you to take as much time as you possibly can during each and every day and review carefully your emotions. Are you feeling calm reassurance and security, optimism, hope and courage, or are you becoming nervous and scared, unsure, unconfident, and frightened for your safety and the safety of your family? If you are, then we suggest to you to seek guidance from another. We suggest to you to begin to openly engage in conversation with others that you have met through communities of light and engage in conversations that will lead you to the guidance you seek. Those of the light who are highly trained, skilled, and very qualified to offer you this guidance are here in your world in great numbers and they are here throughout your online community, as they have followed their call in service for the light and they want nothing more than to be of service to you at this time. This is why they are Lightworkers, and this is why they are here, in honor and duty they will fulfill their missions. Allow them to do what they have come here to do and reach out to them as they will reach out to you, and this is how it will be from this day forward as none of you have to walk any of these paths along. We are here as well, we are watching over you, and we want nothing more than for you to successfully choose the path that you wish to travel and we will do all that we can to see to this. This is our assignment, and in honor of duty we will fulfill our mission as well.
For some of you, stored within your subconscious are memories of this past event, and this is all you will have of this emotion. You will not have to relive this past catastrophe if you do not choose to. This is your choice at this time. You will not have replayed in your mind the events of your past, and you will not have to relive this experience or the emotions tied to them. You are being given the opportunity to purify yourselves of this past traumatic incident. You are being given the opportunity to clear not only these deep rooted emotions seated within you, but also to eradicate this past event from your experience. This is a tremendous opportunity for you and everyone to clear the residue of this event from your memory banks. This is what many of you have come here to do, as these deep rooted memories and buried emotions have stifled somewhat your advancement.
You have come back here at this time with the opportunity to replay this event and achieve through this opportunity a new outcome. Tremendous effort has gone into the planning of this event by many beings and many organizations throughout this universe, and we say to you to take advantage of this opportunity given you as this opportunity will not be offered again. What you are being offered is so rare in this universe that we say to you it is likely this kind of opportunity will never be offered anyone anywhere again. Do you understand now a little better why you all are blessed to be here and why you are being given this opportunity?
Many of you have learned how important it is to clear deep-seated emotions that work to weigh you down and interfere with your progression through your path of existence. There are many techniques available to release these deep rooted emotions from yourselves, and this entire scenario of your world has been designed as a tool to assist you to release an experience that, for many of you, has been the most traumatic and is giving you the most trouble on your journey. By reliving this event and choosing a different outcome, you will have the ability to clear this negative energy from your being. Whether you choose to do this or not is entirely your decision, and we will honor each and every choice you make.
We will only say to you that a great deal of effort has gone into this process, and you have also gone through so much to reach this point to have before you this opportunity, and we say to you do not squander it, take full advantage of it, and do what it is you have come here to do. No matter the outcome, none of you will regret being given this opportunity, and again, what you choose to do with it is up to you. There were many who wished to be here at this time, but their desire could not be accommodated. You are one of the fortunate ones, and we remind you of this only to motivate you to take full advantage of this blessed opportunity. We see so many of you doing just that and taking full advantage of your opportunities at this time.
We say to you there is something else you can do as well that will not only benefit you, but your brothers and sisters as well, and that is to assist your brother and your sister to also use this opportunity to its fullest benefit. Those are some of your choices at this time, and as we have said, you will have many choices presented to you and we will do our part to make these choices as clear to you as we possibly can. We will do what we can and take every step necessary to allow you to recognize these choices, and let you know when it is time to choose.
Today you are being given the choice as to whether you wish to proceed with your learning and your growth, or whether you wish to go back to the lives that you have become accustomed to, close your doors and your windows and try to somehow block out the events that are transpiring around you. That is your choice today, and you are required to make a decision and then proceed with your life along that path. There will be new paths presented to you along the way, and you will have further opportunities to decide which way you would like to advance, or return back to where you are now and shut out the world around you. This is your choice, and we await your decision.
All along your journey you have had the opportunity to continue forward or stop your progress, and each and every one of you has chosen to move forward and that is why each and every one of you is here at this time today. We only suggest to you that you have gone this far and have gone through so much to reach this point, so why stop now when you are so very close to the goal you had in mind the day you set out on your very long journey.
We are the Galactic Federation of Light.

Grandpa - Priceless!

----- Forwarded Message -----
Looks like this letter will be sent to many grandchildren...

John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse... Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:

Sweetheart, I received your request for assistance.   Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I'm sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed.  With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own...."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan."  Let me explain.
Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc...  We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon.  But the plan has changed. Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly.  He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to other people... Do you know what this means, Ashley?  It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business and personal expenses.
You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can't afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees.... Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books.  We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income.
I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this morning.  He already knows about it and he's upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.
That's just the business side of things. Some personal economic effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than you. You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc., etc.  But by your vote, you have chosen to help others -- not at your expense -- but at our expense.
If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call   202-456-1111  202-456-1111   202-456-1111 202-456-1111 . That is the direct phone number for the White House.. You can also contact the White House here:;...

You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Republican... You said Mr. Obama is going to be the People's President, and is going to help every American live a better life. Based on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago.

Perhaps you can now understand what I've been saying all my life: Those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves.  What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called "less fortunate") comes from tax-paying families.
Remember how you told me, "Only the richest of the rich will be affected"? Well guess what, honey?  Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich.  On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it..
As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper... You understand what that means, right?  It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.
I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over... I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for "change." For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.
Remember, we love you dearly.... but from now on you'll need to call the number mentioned above. Your "Savior" has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from him.
Good luck, sweetheart.
Love, Grandpa


This is quite a love story! 
For half a century, the world has applauded John Glenn as a 
heart-stirring American hero.  He lifted the nation's spirits when, 
as one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts, he was blasted alone 
into orbit around the Earth; the enduring affection for him is so 
powerful that even now people find themselves misting up at the sight 
of his face or the sound of his voice.

But for all these years, Glenn has had a hero of his own, someone who he has seen display endless courage of a different kind:
Annie Glenn.

They have been married for 68 years. He is 90; she turned 92.  We are being reminded that, half a century down the line, he remains America 's unforgettable hero. He has never really bought that.Because the heroism he most cherishes is of a sort that is seldom cheered.  It belongs to the person he has known longer than he has known anyone else in the world.

John Glenn and Annie Castor first knew each other when -- literally
-- they shared a playpen. In New Concord, Ohio, his parents and hers were friends.  When the families got together, their children played.
John -- the future Marine fighter pilot, the future test-pilot ace,
the future astronaut -- was pure gold from the start.  He would end
up having what it took to rise to the absolute pinnacle of American
regard during the space race; imagine what it meant to be the young
John Glenn in the small confines of New Concord.

Three-sport varsity athlete, most admired boy in town, Mr.  Everything.
Annie Castor was bright, was caring, was talented, was generous of
spirit.  But she could talk only with the most excruciating of
difficulty.  It haunted her.

Her stuttering was so severe that it was categorized as an "85%"
disability -- 85% of the time, she could not manage to make words come out.

When she tried to recite a poem in elementary school, she was laughed
at.  She was not able to speak on the telephone.  She could not have
a regular conversation with a friend. And John Glenn loved her.

Even as a boy he was wise enough to understand that people who could not see past her stutter were missing out on knowing a rare and wonderful girl.

They married on April 6, 1943.  As a military wife, she found that  life as she and John moved around the country could be quite hurtful.  She has written: "I can remember some very painful experiences -- especially the ridicule."

In department stores, she would wander unfamiliar aisles trying to
find the right section, embarrassed to attempt to ask the salesclerks
for help.  In taxis, she would have to write requests to the driver,
because she couldn't speak the destination out loud.  In restaurants,
she would point to the items on the menu.

A fine musician, Annie, in every community where she and John moved,
would play the organ in church as a way to make new friends.  She and
John had two children; she has written: "Can you imagine living in
the modern world and being afraid to use the telephone?  'Hello' used
to be so hard for me to say.  I worried that my children would be
injured and need a doctor.  Could I somehow find the words to get the
information across on the phone?"

John, as a Marine aviator, flew 59 combat missions in World War II
and 90 during the Korean War. 
Every time he was deployed, he and
Annie said goodbye the same way.  His last words to her before leaving were:   "I'm just going down to the corner store to get a pack of gum."
And, with just the two of them there, she was able to always reply:
"Don't be long."

On that February day in 1962 when the world held its breath and the
Atlas rocket was about to propel him toward space, those were their
words, once again.  And in 1998, when, at 77, he went back to space aboard the shuttle Discovery, it was an understandably tense time for them.  What if something happened to end their life together?

She knew what he would say to her before boarding the shuttle.  He
did -- and this time he gave her a present to hold onto: A pack of gum.
She carried it in a pocket next to her heart until he was safely home.
Many times in her life she attempted various treatments to cure her
stutter.  None worked.

But in 1973, she found a doctor in Virginia who ran an intensive
program she and John hoped would help her.  She traveled there to
enroll and to give it her best effort. The miracle she and John had
always waited for at last, as miracles will do, arrived.  At age 53,
she was able to talk fluidly, and not in brief, anxiety-ridden,
agonizing bursts.
 John has said that on the first day he heard her speak to him with confidence and clarity, he dropped to his knees to offer a prayer of gratitude.

He has written: "I saw Annie's perseverance and strength through the
years and it just made me admire her and love her even more." He has
heard roaring ovations in countries around the globe for his own
valor, but his awe is reserved for Annie, and what she accomplished:
"I don't know if I would have had the courage."

Her voice is so clear and steady now that she regularly gives public
talks.  If you are lucky enough to know the Glenns, the sight and
sound of them bantering and joking with each other and playfully
finishing each others' sentences is something that warms you and
makes you thankful just to be in the same room.

Monday will be the anniversary of the Mercury space shot, and once
again people will remember, and will speak of the heroism of Glenn
the astronaut. But if you ever find yourself at an event where the Glenns are
appearing, and you want to see someone so brimming with pride and
love that you may feel your own tears start to well up, wait until
the moment that Annie stands to say a few words to the audience.

And as she begins, take a look at her husband's eyes.

John's Comments --- This is a TRUE American Hero and has the Right Stuff. My son was named after him.

Is this the beginning of the end for you know who? 

Very interesting Stats

Very interesting Stats
There are actually two messages here. The 1st is very
interesting, but the 2nd is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot.
A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very
interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International
Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years
after diagnosis:
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%
Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received
treatment within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%
Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it
within six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%
Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within
one month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%
Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18
Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are
in "excellent health":
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%
And now for the last statistic:
National Health Insurance?
England YES
Canada YES
Check this last set of statistics!!
The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked
in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
You know what the private business sector is.a real-life business, not a
government job. Here are the percentages.
T. Roosevelt................... 38%
Taft................................... 40%
Wilson .............................. 52%
Harding........................... 49%
Coolidge........................ 48%
Hoover............................. 42%
F. Roosevelt................... 50%
Truman........................... 50%
Eisenhower.................... 57%
Kennedy......................... 30%
Johnson......................... 47%
Nixon.............................. 53%
Ford.................................. 42%
Carter............................... 32%
Reagan........................... 56%
GH Bush........................ 51%
Clinton ............................. 39%
GW Bush........................ 55%
Obama.................... 8%
This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:
only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!
That's right! Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the
last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big
corporations how to run their business?
How can the president of a major nation and society, the one
with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk
about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has
never really had one? And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff
and closest advisers? They've spent most of their time in academia,
government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers." They should
have been in an employment line.
Pass this on because we'll NEVER see these facts in the main
stream media.

CGI's Maryhrt: Myanmar Floating It's Currency April 1st 2012

Myanmar Will Unleash Its Currency
Myanmar said it would float its currency, effective April 1, enacting a long-sought policy reform that is expected to make the resource-rich Southeast Asian country more inviting to foreign investors following decades of pariah-nation status.
The move is one of the biggest reforms to date as Myanmar 's government seeks to re-engage with the outside world and get out from under the weight of tough Western sanctions. The country's current foreign-exchange system, which involves a fixed "official" exchange rate that's more than 100 times as valuable against the dollar as the country's black-market rate, is so confusing that many foreign companies have refused to re-enter the country even if Western leaders ease sanctions against Myanmar as expected later this year.
The idea is to unify the country's multiple exchange rates so that businesses and the government can more easily handle accounting and convert money.
The step faces several pitfalls, though, and could have unintended consequences, including an unstable exchange rate or a strengthening currency that hobbles the country's nascent export sector at a time when the country is just re-entering the global economy. It could also prove too difficult to implement in a country that has little technical expertise in handling complex financial reforms.
Myanmar officials wanted to move more quickly on the currency than International Monetary Fund advisers suggested, according to people familiar with the process. Myanmar has brought in experts from the Malaysian and Thailand central banks to help with the transition. IMF officials familiar with the Myanmar situation couldn't be reached.
Details of the change—announced Wednesday in the official New Light of Myanmar newspaper—remain unclear, including the exact value of the Myanmar kyat when it is floated Sunday, which is also the day of a key parliamentary by-election contested by famed dissident Aung San Suu Kyi. It is also unclear when, or if, foreigners will be able to trade the currency in significant sums. Bankers and officials familiar with the reform have said in recent weeks that the kyat will likely be set between 800 kyat and 820 kyat to the dollar, which is close to the prevailing unofficial street rate.
The government announcement said simply that the kyat will "from now on be determined by supply and demand" via a "managed" float, and that the government would "gradually eliminate restrictions on current international payments and transfers abroad."
"I think it will be difficult for them to control the currency," said Anthony Nafte, a senior economist at CLSA Asia-Pacific Mark ets in Hong Kong . Among the risks, he said, was that the kyat would keep increasing in value as more foreign dollars rush in to take advantage of business opportunities there, hurting exports.
